Austin, TX [US/Canada/EU remote ok] - WP Engine (http://wpengine.com)

The only managed WordPress platform invested in by Automattic, hosting WordPress for the likes of Foursquare, Asana, Soundcloud and many big name household brands. Security and scalability is what gets us going, along with being part of the WordPress and OS communities.

We're still a small (~7 person), funded startup looking to expand the team due to the tremendus growth we've seen over the past 12 months. We currently have positions for:

PHP Software Engineers

* Bringing the highest level of quality and best-practice to PHP engineering.

* Developing both WordPress-code (some of which will be submitted to the open source project) and internal customer-facing projects.

Linux Server Admins

* We run our own bare-metal hardware because we're so optimized for speed, yet we deploy new servers all the time due to our growth.

* You are confident working with high-availability SOA clusters of memcache, varnish, nginx, apache, mysql, etc.

* You want to automate the shit out of everything - we do too!

You can find out more about what we do, how we do it and why we do it at http://wpengine.com/careers/ - where you can also find out more about our positions.

As you would expect we offer a competitive salary, equity, benefits, and a fun environment to work in.

You can email your resumes to ben [at] wpengine .com

Just to add some clout to this one, I'm doing consulting for WP Engine and @patio11 was here for a week in January. Jason, the CEO, is an amazing person to learn from, as he's already had one successful exit, and he builds a team that's the best of the best. We also have a great office space in downtown Austin and are flexible with remote workers.

Highly recommended that you look at applying here--even if you're from another country. (Especially if you're an awesome sysadmin who knows WordPress and lives in another country--we're actively looking for those right now.)

Berlin, Germany (Remote considered) FULL TIME

NVIDIA ARC GmbH is looking for a senior software engineer to join our GPU cloud computing project. We're building a rendering solution that greatly reduces the upfront costs for rendering and design studios by seamlessly integrating cloud computing into the 3D modelling and rendering workflow. User response so far has been great - see these (slightly outdated) videos to get an impression: [1] [2]

We're a team of five engineers looking for an engineer with outstanding C++ and network programming abilities to take over the client-side part of this project. You should be familiar developing in multi-threading applications and integrating with binary protocols and RESTful APIs. Experience with EC2 and HTML/Javascript/Coffeescript is a plus.

Technologies we use are AWS EC2, (unbiased/consistent) real-time raytracing, C++, CoffeeScript/Javascript, Python, PHP, HTML, Flex, RESTful APIs, single-command deployments. You'll have a lot of freedom in working with technologies you like and prefer.

We prefer somebody who's in Berlin or willing to move, but are willing to consider remote as an option for the right candidate.

Personally, I've been with NVIDIA for 4 years and enjoy the flexibility and freedom I'm given, both on as an engineer and employee (for example, moving to the US to study abroad & transfer to NVIDIA US for that time was encouraged and quite easy).

Feel free to email me (see profile) or apply online at [3].

We're looking for:

* Data scientists

* Developers (REMOTE)

* Technical sales

More information at http://www.kaggle.com/pages/jobs

Kaggle has just closed a large Series A ($11.25m). Our early employees will help shape Kaggle's direction and grow along with the company.

Mountain View - drchrono.com (YC W11) [full time and interns]

We're looking for more engineers and salespeople to help us revolutionize healthcare through mobile and web interfaces. Our stack includes Python/Django, iOS, and Android, but you don't need to be an expert, just ready and willing to learn fast!

Our product supports thousands of doctors who depend on our systems daily to provide quality care to their patients, iPad in hand.

email: jobs@[our-domain-name]


I start working with these guys in a couple weeks and could not be more excited. Awesome product, awesome team.

Menlo Park, CA. Full time.

Lead Designer at Everyme (YC S11)

Everyme is the best way to keep in touch (https://everyme.com). We are looking for an extraordinary designer who has designed for mobile devices and the web. Experience with HTML/CSS is NOT necessary. You will be paid market salary and you will have generous equity. You will be treated like a god and your designs will be followed to the pixel. You will work with a team of 5 amazing engineers. Last month we hired a web engineer from the who's hiring post.

Please email me at vibhu@everyme.com with your portfolio.

These guys are being far too humble.

The Everyme guys are one of the most impressive early stage mobile companies - in terms of product and founding team - I have seen for a long time. They've sold millions of iPhone applications in the past and now they've raised money from Greylock (Facebook) and Andreessen Horrowitz (Jawbone, Fab, etc) and dozens of other investors to take over the world.

If I were a designer (which I am) and were looking to join a company that was going to create a gorgeous product that has a significant chance to become the next Facebook, I'd join these guys in a beat.

San Francisco, CA - Sift Science [fulltime or intern, H1B ok]

Sift Science is aimed at bringing machine learning to the masses. Our initial product is an API to detect online fraud. Last year, there was $2.4B in credit card fraud, 70% of it from organized crime, and it literally kills companies (see http://techcrunch.com/2011/11/10/brandstack-heads-for-the-de...). We're using large-scale classification techniques, paired with elegant visualization tools, to catch fraudsters before they make off with our customer's cash. Our pilot customers are technically savvy and highly motivated to work with us as we develop our beta product.

 We're a team of ex-Google and ex-Zillow engineers who previously worked on speech recognition, ads targeting, payments, sentiment analysis, and more. We're backed by top angel investors who "get it." We like to laugh, push each other, and we do fun events with other companies in the broader San Francisco startup community to keep things fresh.

If you have expertise or passion for any of the following fields, we want you: * Machine learning (including applications like computer vision) * Natural language processing * Data management (e.g., large-scale databases, map reduce, data fusion, data mining, etc.) * Data visualization

If this sounds interesting, shoot a resume over to jobs@siftscience.com!

I'm sure this has been done but out of curiosity I wrote a (highly unscientific) little script to count the times that some languages are mentioned herein[1]. The results:

    java: 53
    python: 28
    ruby: 16
    php: 14
    node: 9
Winnah: Java! :)

EDIT: Thank you goo! Take 2, maybe it will work better:

    java: 42
    python: 38
    javascript: 34
    ruby: 24
    php: 16
    node: 15

java and javascript are stepping on eachother :p, how about '''preg_match_all("/$lang\b/i", $html, $matches);'''?

you failed ;p

Salt Lake City, UT. - http://www.lucidchart.com

LucidChart is an HTML5 diagramming application that proves web apps don't need to be pale imitations of their full-featured desktop counterparts. Real-time collaboration and full versioning history aren't our only advantages; users tell us they like LucidChart because it's faster, easier, and smoother than Visio and Omnigraffle.

We need great engineers who want to work in a Silicon Valley startup, but would rather live 15 minutes from the ski resorts in Utah. We have one of the largest Javascript codebases on the Internet supporting LucidChart's client, and are using Scala, PHP, node.js, MongoDB, and MySQL to power our servers. Experience in one or more of these areas is helpful, but we're most interested in people with inhuman problem solving skills.

We currently have 9 full-time employees, including 6 engineers. That ratio reflects the focus of our organization -- we are a software company, and we live or die on the strength of our engineering team. We think we have the strongest engineering team in Utah, and want to add at least 3-5 people this year.

All hires are made by unanimous decision of the current team. If you join us, you can know that everyone here wants you here.

Send resumes, github profiles, or whatever else might be relevant to jobs at lucidchart dot com.

Recently used this for generating a few charts for a school assignment. Great piece of software. Tried out a whole bunch of them before coming across these guys.

Amsterdam, Netherlands [UTC-9 to UTC+2 remote ok] - Akvo Foundation (http://www.akvo.org) Full time or part time.

Akvo is a small non-profit foundation, but we are not your ordinary NGO. We develop open source web and mobile software, which we run as a service, and build networks of skilled partners that can change the way development aid is allocated, reported and monitored.

There is tremendous interest in our services and we are actively working with hundreds of NGOs, governments and large institutions, like the Worldbank, UN and corporates. For a flavour, check our blog out: http://www.akvo.org/blog/?cat=3&paged=2

We are a small team (20), well funded, and are expanding our technical team to cope with all the new and exciting stuff.

If you are good at a combination of (any combo will do): Java, Google Web Toolkit, Google app engine, python, Django, HTML/CSS/JavaScript, dev/ops, Linux sys admin, QA, Wordpress (themes/plugin building/php); tech doc, well, then I have open positions. Half time to full time. Working from home. If you like a more formal job description we have them here:

* Front-end web designer and developer (HTML / CSS / Javascript)

* Developer / system administrator

* Java developer

* Quality Assurance (not listed on jobs page yet, but coming)


Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Knewton: New York (NYC) funded startup seeking software engineers interested in functional programming, machine learning, distributed systems, and "big data" problems. +ONSITE, +REMOTE, +FULLTIME, +INTERN. I am not personally sure (I'm a software engineer) about H1-B but I will refer any visa questions to someone who can answer them.

Investors include Peter Thiel (Founder's Fund), Reid Hoffman, and Pearson, a leader in educational publishing. We were recognized as a Technology Pioneer for 2011 by the World Economic Forum in Davos and one of the top 25 best places to work by Crain’s New York Business.

We have about 80 employees right now. We pay full market salaries plus stock options, and you can take as much vacation as you need. Hours are typically 40-50 per week.

Our product is an adaptive learning platform, which means we use machine learning and "big data" techniques to deliver an individualized education to each student. Our eventual goal is to make a high-quality, adaptive education available to everyone in the world. The product is used by Arizona State University right now, and we recently signed a deal with Pearson to power many of their products.

Our code is a mix of Python, Java, and Scala. Most of our existing code is in Python, but we're working to scale up in a major way, which involves a migration to the JVM. Currently this involves a mix of Java and Scala, but our long-term goal is to move toward Scala. Consequently, we're really hot for Scala talent right now. Anyone who has experience taking Scala into production we would love to talk to right now.

You can reach me at knerd83 at gmail.com, and I'm a software engineer so I'll be able to answer any of your technical questions (e.g. why we're interested in Scala). Reach out if any of the following interest you:

* Using technology to democratize education.

* Machine learning and data mining, including approaches such as probablistic graphic models (PGMs), Support Vector Machines (SVMs) and Monte Carlo Markov Chains.

* Functional programming (cf. Scala and Python).

* The Java Virtual Machine (JVM) internals and performance optimization.

* NoSQL databases (Cassandra and Redis).

* Thrift (the RPC protocol).

* Cloud computing (Amazon Web Services, Unix) and distributed systems.

FP in Python? Interesting… Have you seen Clojure?

Do you do any UI work?

The company, or me personally?

Yes to the first, no on the second.

San Francisco, CA. Full time. Interns. (H1B ok for the right candidates)

* Platform/Backend Engineers

You ideally have experience working on APIs or web services, mastery of either Ruby, Python, Perl or Scala and an advanced knowledge of RESTful services, OAuth and JSON.

We're very small but are well backed by the best-of-the-best so you get the best of both worlds: an amazing team, generous equity, a competitive salary and health/dental. A fully stocked kitchen, team-cooked lunches, new computer/monitor and team trips to Vegas make up the rest of the package.

Shoot me an email at stefano [4t] betable.com if you're interested.

We're looking for a back-end engineer to help grow our product. Rather than any buzzwords, we value folks who are passionate about and take pride in their craft. Our back-end stack includes PHP, a bit of C, PostgreSQL, Sphinx and Memcached but we'd welcome inquiries from anyone with experience in designing and writing distributed systems, systems programming, and back-end development in general.

Our diverse staff includes veteran engineers from HotJobs and Yahoo, one of Computerworld's 40 Under 40 tech innovators, and even a well-known concert photographer. We offer competitive salaries, stock options, bonuses, great benefits, and try to grab dinner together (on the company!) every few weeks.

If you're interested, shoot an e-mail to devjobs@photoshelter.com. Thanks!

We're one of the best agile development consultancies around. We're looking for sharp, empathetic software developers, mainly working in web (Rails) and mobile (iPhone, Android) projects. Past clients include Groupon, Twitter, Google, Gowalla. We also build Pivotal Tracker, an agile project management tool.

You don't have to be an expert in Rails or the mobile frameworks to get a job here - as long as you are pleasant to work with and willing to learn, that's good enough. Since we pair every day, you'll pick up what you need to know very quickly. After just a month at Pivotal I felt I had improved leaps and bounds as a developer and learnt a tremendous amount about Rails that I didn't know before.

Our product gathers international press and corporate data and turns it into intelligence for companies doing business in emerging markets.

We'd ideally like someone who could write a thesis on Bayesian classifiers, but we'll consider skilled engineers who can look us in the eye and make us believe that they'll learn. Very specific expertise is not a requirement; enough of a maths/compsci background to call bs on the wrong approach is.

Email founders at arachnys.com if it sounds like your sort of challenge. Include links to public code please.

* JAVA - We are looking for Java architects to design and build the technology used to power our production websites, APIs, widgets, and internal tools. This is a chance for you to join a growing company and build something that's going to scale to support millions of users/visitors and provide them with all kinds of data.

My story - moved from Atlanta all the way out to Santa Monica after stopping by the TrueCar booth at PyCon 2011. I started here three month ago and love it. I'm working with a great team that knows how to develop software and for management who seems to "get it" with regards to software developers.

The Python team in an open workspace that has a view of the ocean (http://picplz.com/user/dabent/pic/tpc4v/), and all the Santa Monica offices are blocks from the beach. They have great benefits, including company equity, 100% paid family medical, dental, vision, and a healthy 401k. They also offer gym membership reimbursement ($50 a month), 12 holidays, career training, 3 weeks PTO and have a kitchen stocked with fruit, snacks and such. I've honestly never had a job this good. If you're interested, send me your resume. My email is in my profile.

Toronto: Many companies I know are hiring. FreshBooks, 500px, Rocketr, Mozilla, HireWinston, Endloop, Viafora are all hiring developers. Most are also hiring designers (Rocketr and Viafora are not).

That is halfway correct... :) We are also hiring 1 designer (with strong front-end qualifications).

NYC - Founding Engineer / Lead Developer (Ruby) at Centzy (http://centzy.com)

Centzy is Kayak for local services - comparison shopping for everyday local services like haircuts, dry cleaners, and oil changes. It's a large, untapped market, and we are funded by great investors who share our passion: Lightbank (Groupon's original investor) and ffVC (Klout's original investor).

We are a team of two (one hacker, one business guy with a CS degree) and we are looking for another hacker. As our first hire, we would consider you a late co-founder and expect as much. You'll get serious product ownership with real equity and a salary. You'll be the third leg of the tripod.

We're looking for someone who has built and scaled products on the Ruby / Rails stack in the past. You've probably worked at a startup if not started one. You are smart and relentlessly resourceful. You'll spend most of your time crafting code in Ruby and Javascript, so you should love it. We think hackers should drive product, so you should be comfortable doing this. You've probably at least dabbled in MongoDB and Node.js.

We have great shared startup space in the Lower East Side with tons of great food and bar options nearby. In addition to equity and salary, you'll get your choice of equipment and we'll cover 100% of your health benefits, and lunches and dinners while you're working. And of course the fridge will always be stocked with soda and great micro brews.

He's an awesome mentor (and generally awesome guy). Among other things, he managed the team that built Australia's largest Ruby on Rails application. - CEO is a Stanford grad with 6+ years direct experience in our industry - Ability to shape corporate culture. We tend to be disciplined and professional about the stuff that matters and very casual/flexible about the stuff that doesn't. - Our main stack is Rails 3.1, MySQL (moving to MongoDB soon), jQuery, and HAML. - Looking to build out our iOS and Android platform. If you have experience here, you'd be in charge of this.

Ideal candidate: - 2-3 years full time dev experience in Ruby (will consider light Ruby experience or more junior if you're a solid fit and eager to learn) - Smart / raw talent / logical thought process important - Entrepreneurial hustle - basically someone that wants to contribute a lot to LocalBonus and then be CTO/Founder of their own company after this.

We’re looking for a UI/UX designer in Melbourne, Australia.

Full-time preferable; part-time or intern possible.

We’re a startup based in Carlton. We’re working on a web/email app that makes it easier to write documents with other people. It automatically keeps track of what changed and who did the work, without requiring people to modify how they currently do things, whether it be by passing attachments around by email or by sharing documents in dropbox. It’s not launched yet.

Design is really important to us and you’ll be our first dedicated designer. (Right now our team is approximately 4 developers and a business guy.) We’re running into lots of design challenges and need someone to take the lead on these, in addition to designing the overall experience. As an example, this week we are thinking about how to show the changes between two Word documents in a clearer way than the Word compare view (which is horrible!).

We dream of hiring a junior version of Ryan Singer. We want someone who’s quite analytical about the design process. Regarding technical stuff, you need to be able to work in HTML and CSS, have a good understanding of what’s possible to do with Javascript, and know or be willing to learn git.

Get in touch with me (ben@contextualsystems.com) with any questions, or send a CV and link to your portfolio to apply. I’ll put a more detailed job ad up at http://contextualsystems.com/jobs/ soon.

Leapfrog Online is looking for a talented Chicago-area Python engineer to work in our Evanston office. Our Python engineers build and maintain high-traffic web sites using the Django web framework. We offer a great working atmosphere, a strong focus on work-life balance, and tremendous opportunities to learn new skills and technologies. We also have competitive salaries and benefits and close-knit teams who like what they do.

As we principally focus on the web, we look for real-world experience using Python application frameworks (such as Django) to build high-traffic web sites and applications. Experience with other languages is welcome. What are the extras we look for? Experience producing and consuming web services (SOAP, REST, XML-RPC); experience working with message-oriented systems (AMQP or other message, pub-sub and task queues such as Celery); deep knowledge of version control systems (especially Mercurial or Git); an interest in non-RDBMS data stores (CouchDB, MongoDB, Redis); knowing what it really means to develop RESTful applications; and, experience with functional and declarative programming models in addition to object-oriented development.

If you're a bright, self-motivated engineer who enjoys using open source software to solve interesting problems, you’re our kind of programmer, and we’d like to talk to you. You can apply on our site, where you'll also find full job descriptions and information about Leapfrog Online: http://www.leapfrogonline.com/who/careers/

Palo Alto, CA; San Francisco, CA; remote for some positions

Cloudera is hiring for everything. Lots of cool distributed systems problems to solve, plus some unique opportunities like being a trainer--live anywhere, travel all over for free.

I interned there last summer, and I was totally blown away. Everyone there is brilliant, and they get to work on technical problems that are at their level, not just making another webapp.

And they're completely exploding. They're aggressively establishing themselves as the Hadoop company. They just signed a big deal with Oracle that should help legitimize them even more in the places that matter (ie. with big companies that are willing to pay big money): http://www.cloudera.com/blog/2012/01/oracle-selects-cdh-and-...

The culture is great. Fun people to be around, they really appreciate that taking care of engineers is vital to the company's success, management is deeply technical all the way up to the CEO, and they have regular all-hands meetings where they say just about anything you could want to know about the company.

I was so impressed that I've kept working on-and-off when I have the time, and I convinced my brother to apply and take a job there.

Our millions of users love us (check out our blog comments). We have a net promoter score over 80% (higher than Apple's).

San Francisco, CA (SOMA). Full time.

Stealth - consumer web and mobile

Do you find yourself using Google to navigate websites that you commonly use, or end up with many browser tabs trying to accomplish some task?

Curious? Contact [my username] at alum.mit.edu. And yes, we have hired from these threads in the past!

Los Gatos, CA Netflix

Looking for Senior SREs.

Basically, we're acting like a new company to take streaming global and make it so convient that it is better than the free options.

I'm looking for people to help make sure that any time someone wants to find and play a movie, they can.

We're solving lots of really interesting problems, like how do you maintain a reliable service on hardware that is unreliable and you don't control (Amazon Web Services).

Our group also gets to help teach other groups how to build for scale.

Come join me!

You can get more info here: http://jobs.usethesource.com/item?id=166

Or here: http://www.reddit.com/comments/jyaqd/

Or here: http://www.netflix.com/Jobs?id=7563&jvi=olLGVfwr

Second, I wouldn't say AWS is unreliable.

First, I've emailed the Netflix team before. I emailed a whole bunch of different people on the team about some technical ideas and issues I had with the service. Without a single reply.

San Francisco, CA (near Ferry Building). Full time.

Kontagent is building analytics for social and mobile apps. We are handling billions of daily messages and growing.

For engineers, we are looking for C and/or C++ engineers, python engineers, and more. Quality of the person of course trumps any buzzwords.

If you feel you may have something to offer but are unsure about a position, don't see a position listed, or even just want more detail about what we are looking for and what we're like to work for, please contact me. I'm a developer here myself and would be happy to chat w/ anyone who would like to know more.

Bay Area or Los Angeles or Shanghai strongly preferred, but remote work is possible for exceptional candidates (must live in the U.S.). Full-time only. H1B is okay. We also have several summer internship opportunities.

Factual's vision is to be an awesome and affordable data provider, so that developers, startups, and big companies can focus on innovation instead of data acquisition. We believe in openness and transparency rather than proprietariness and obfuscation.

We have a terrific team that is still fairly small, and an incredible CEO (he was the co-founder of Applied Semantics, which was sold to Google and became AdSense). In late 2010, we raised a Series A from Andreessen-Horowitz, and our customers and partners include Facebook, Newsweek, Loopt, and Blekko. We have lots of challenging problems to work on at all layers of the stack: data cleaning and canonicalization, deduping, storage, serving, APIs, etc. If you love data, Factual is the place to be.

We currently have about half a dozen job openings, from data engineering to software engineering to system administration. For the software engineering position, you would ideally know Java, Clojure, and/or Ruby, and you'll get bonus points for experience with machine learning, NoSQL, algorithms, infrastructure, and/or Hadoop.

If you're interested in the Bay Area office, it just opened in December of 2011, so you'd have a significant influence on the culture there.

Canvas (USV Funded) is looking for engineers #3 and #4 to join a small close team building the rich-media community platform of the future.

The job title says "Software Engineer" but really we're looking for "Software Entrepreneur" or a "Startup Engineer". Yes, your day job will be writing code. But that's the only similarity to a big company software job.

As a team member you'll work on your schedule, have access to competitive health insurance plans, a chance to earn real equity, and, most importantly, the opportunity to contribute in a big way to building new ways to organize, collaborate and share in the cloud.

We're looking for a backend engineer. The Dispatch backend is a service oriented architecture, built entirely on AWS.

Like hacking on 3rd party APIs? Good, because we build on Dropbox, Google Docs, Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, with plans for many more. Interested in file transfer and sync? We’re making moving files in the cloud fast and reliable. Search? We’re building search across the stuff in your clouds. Realtime? You can head up our plans to move from asynchronous polling to a socketed system.

Things we're looking for ----

* Good architecture skills with a focus on details, experience with fault-tolerance, use of message queues, etc. * Experience with small or cross-functional teams (startup experience would be nice). * Solid understanding of computer science fundamentals, e.g. data structures, time complexity, algorithms. * Comfort with statically-typed languages, knowledge of OOP. * Security-mindedness, with the ability to identify and defend against threats and vulnerabilities. * Experience with Amazon Web Services would be nice.

Designer & Front-end Developer at Newspaper Club.


We help anyone make and print their own newspapers. We believe the web is too important to be left to screens, and that newsprint is a highly evolved technology too. We build things that combine the two, using each medium for what it's best at.

We're looking for a great designer + front-end developer to work alongside our co-founder and engineer (me, @tomtaylor) and form the start of a tight knit development team.

We want to overhaul our existing in-browser newspaper layout tool + API, launch a print-on-demand marketplace, and develop a number of products and services that use completely personalised newsprint in smart ways.

Things like the Postcode Paper we built for Data.gov.uk. http://blog.newspaperclub.com/2009/10/16/data-gov-uk-newspap...

Or the prototype Telepaper, which turns Readability + Instapaper content into a delivered newspaper. http://telepaper.newspaperclub.com/

You'll need to be able to go from sketches and conversation, to working code in browser yourself. We like generalists who can think both like designers + engineers, with a good sense of product intuition. Someone who can code their own designs, and enjoys working closely with a backend engineer.

Bonus points if you have a solid understanding of how to build well structured Javascript web apps, using frameworks like Backbone.

You've probably got a few years experience working on public sites, either for yourself or others, and can show us sample projects you've worked on. We value code over experience, so show us what you've done.

We run a small, friendly ship, in a relaxed environment we share with interesting folks in Shoreditch. We've got a proven business model, and are generating real, actual, genuine profit, with very little investment. We're doing this on our terms, and building the kind of organisation we'd like to work for.

All of which, I'll be honest, completely astounds me.

In return, we can offer a competitive package of salary and equity, in varying proportions.

If you're interested, drop us a line at jobs@newspaperclub.com, with a note about yourself and links to things you think we'd find interesting (eg. Github account, CV, portfolio).

San Francisco, CA. Full time.

Academia.edu is a platform for academics to share research papers. The company's mission is to accelerate the world's research.

It's widely held that science is too closed, and too slow. We are trying to change that. We believe that faster sharing of research will lead to an acceleration in research innovation: faster innovation in medicine, biology, engineering, economics, and other fields. Faster sharing in biology and medicine, for example, could lead to cancer being solved 12 months before it otherwise would have been, which would lead to millions of lives being saved.

Academia.edu has over 950,000 registered users, and over 3 million monthly unique visitors. Both of these metrics tripled in 2011. Over 4,500 papers are added to the platform each day, and over 3,000 academics join each day.

We need talented engineers to come and help us accelerate the world's research. We believe that there is a chance to make a big impact.

We just raised $4.5 million from Spark Capital and True Ventures http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3297812. Some of our angel investors include Mark Shuttleworth (founder of Ubuntu) and Rupert Pennant-Rea (Chairman of The Economist).

We have a strong engineering culture. We're a 6 person team based in downtown San Francisco. The site is Rails, and other technologies we use include PostgreSQL, Redis, Varnish, Solr, Memcached, Mongodb, Beanstalkd.

Familiarity with our technologies is a plus, but it's not essential. It's far more important that you are a quick learner who can pick up new technologies quickly. There is more information about the company on our hiring page, at http://academia.edu/hiring.

The kinds of things you would be working on include:

★ building new features (a conference feature, a discussion feature for papers)

★ enhancing existing features (News Feed, Profile page, paper upload tools)

★ building back-end infrastructure to scale the site

What we're looking for are:

☀ 2+ years of web development experience

☀ Experience with the full engineering stack

☀ Passion for engineering

All the strategic decisions in the startup are made collaboratively, whether they are about hiring, new feature development, user growth, user retention, funding, or revenue. You can participate in those general startup decisions as much or as little as you want. We have found that our decisions are much better as a result of everyone contributing to them. If you like having an impact, you will enjoy the Academia.edu culture. There is more information here http://academia.edu/hiring.

H1B candidates are very welcome. We will take care of the visa process.

If you are interested to learn more, please email Richard Price at richard [at] academia.edu

I just saw one of these threads with 10+ comments. Where did it go?

My mistake. Sorry. I didn't know there was a dedicated role account and time (9:00 am Eastern) for the "Who Is Hiring?" threads. If I had, I wouldn't have started it.

- Solid grasp on modern web application design using Javascript, HTML, CSS

- Experience with version control systems (we use Git/Github)

- Solid testing methodologies and willingness to write comprehensive tests before release

You get extra bonus points for:

- A substantial amount of equity in the company

If you're interested, send an email with your résume and something interesting about yourself to michael@carwoo.com.

We're based in Silicon Valley, but if you live outside the Valley, we still really want to talk to you (we'll pay for your flight, hotel, and meals when you come interview with us).

>- $5,000 to buy anything you want to get your work done (must include an Apple computer of some sort)

Good disclaimer, otherwise you'd be causing a bubble in the cocaine market :)



I'm a full-stack web developer at Yelp, and I definitely recommend the hell out of working here. We've still got the startup environment (kegs, dog, etc); we're located in downtown San Francisco, half a block from MoMa; we are in a unique position to do great stuff and solve hard problems while helping people find great local businesses.

I built our "Hot New Businesses" feature - http://yelp.com/openings/sf , for instance, you can find it on the homepage and in our mobile apps too - which crunches through our data nightly and generates a list of the most recently opened bars and restaurants in your city, complete with predictions of the day they opened on. It's a really useful feature, and we have so much data that I was able to build it without knowing anything about machine learning, data-mining, etc; imagine the crazy-useful stuff you could do here, if a knucklehead like me could make a feature like this.

For more info about what it's like to work here as an engineer, see a Q&A with me at http://officialblog.yelp.com/2011/07/day-in-the-life-of-a-ye... , or feel free to contact me at jrheard at yelp dot com.

Here's a list of our open engineering positions:

Web Developer

☆ Develop cool and useful features for our 61M+ monthly visitors

☆ Expertise in JavaScript, HTTP, HTML/DOM, and CSS, as well as server-side chops in a language like Python, Ruby, Java, C++, etc. We're on Python, but we're just looking for people who are really good at programming, so no worries if you don't have much Python experience.

Search and Data-Mining Engineer

☆ Tackle machine learning and information retrieval problems from our database of 22M+ Yelp reviews

☆ Strong grasp of algorithms and data structures; expertise in Python, Java, or C++

Back-end Engineer

☆ Build whole systems that are simple and scalable

☆ Expertise in your favorite modern programming language: Python, Ruby, Java, Objective-C, or C++ Mobile Developer

☆ Create fun and useful mobile applications for the iPhone, Android, Blackberry platforms and beyond

☆ Expertise in C++, Java and other mobile languages

Join the team of happy hackers at PipelineDeals! We’re looking for a talented junior/mid-level Rails developer preferably in the Philly/NYC/DC area, but remotes are welcome as well.


- Work at a well-established small company that’s 5 years old, bootstrapped, profitable, and proud!

- Join a tightly-knit small team of very talented coders to help drive the product.

- We are very progressive with the technology we use. Chef, kiji-ruby, authlogic, Backbone.js, etc. We implement the things we find promising, and encourage all developers to help bring ideas to the table. Let your voice be heard and your opinion be respected!

- Our team is very test- and spec-driven. We typically use a peer-review model to ensure that none of us are going off the deep end with a solution. We are striving towards continuous deployment. We have our CI server run our test suite upon each push to the remote repo. We measure almost everything.

- You are encouraged to contribute to open source, and we have open source Fridays!

- Relish in the fact that the projects you will be working on will be used directly by thousands of our customers worldwide!

- Reimbursement for conferences or meetups you would like to attend, books you want to buy, screencasts you want to watch.

- Great benefits package, a competitive salary, and lots of room for growth. Our goal is to ensure you are comfortable so you will be productive.


- We are looking for a relatively green go-getter who’s chomping at the bit to make a lasting impression and eager to learn new things.

- Must have at least a year of experience working directly with ruby, either with a company, or via open source. Past contributions to open source projects, or maintaining your own, are looked very highly upon.

- At least a year’s experience working with Rails, either your own or at a previous company.

- Experience with jQuery and (double rainbow bonus) Backbone.js.

- Solid familiarity with git or other distributed version control system.

- Enough SQL to understand what rails is doing in the backend.

- A good sense of humor is a strict requirement. Company culture is very important to us, and we are absolutely NOT a bunch of straight-laced, profit-driven, cubicle-sitting curmudgeons.

- Remote work OK, but it is highly preferable if you are located around the Philadelphia area. You will be expected to be at our Philadelphia office sometimes. We do get lonely.

Seattle, San Francisco, Cupertino (and other places), FULL-TIME, INTERN, H1B

A lot of people think Splunk must be a terrible place to work at because they think it is an "enterprise" company. But the truth is, we have great jobs for a lot of people. Want to work on awesome visualizations for gigabytes and terabytes of data daily? We got it. Want to work on building a development platform for an extremely powerful data analysis tool? We got it. Want to help make the core server that powers our extremely fast indexing and performance better? We got it.

For example, my project for the past couple of months has been to develop our new Node.js/Browser SDK, including pulling some of our propietary UI components and sharing them with the world. We also do a lot of work with customers to best help them use Splunk. One of the projects I was involved in included analyzing social data using Splunk (like Twitter/Foursquare).

Whether it's UI, core systems engineering, dev platform or anything in between, we likely have something for you. I personally work on the development platform in the Seattle office, but I'm happy to answer questions about anything. Feel free to shoot me an email (in my profile), or comment here.

I wanted to highlight a few specific positions we're looking for:

* Dev. Platform Software Engineer: This is the team I work on. We strongly believe that there is a use for Splunk outside of logging, and we're enabling the usage of the technology for dealing with large quantities of data, whether it's for social network analysis, cloud management or anything in between. http://www.splunk.com/view/SP-CAAAGK3?jvi=oHkCVfwi

* Frontend engineer: We're trying to present a lot of data (some might even call it big data :) in a human-understandable manner. Help us implement the next wave of visualizations: http://www.splunk.com/view/SP-CAAAGK3?jvi=okO3VfwQ

* UI/UX Designer: For many of our customers, they spend a great deal of their day in our web UI, and even more importantly, they spend time there when something is going wrong and they want to find out what. Help us make the UI/UX as easy and intuitive to use as possible: http://www.splunk.com/view/SP-CAAAGK3?jvi=okQ4VfwT

* Cloud Software Engineer: we're developing the next stage of our product, which is a hosted version of Splunk in the cloud, with all the benefits you'd expect (like automatic elastic scaling). Come help us make this a reality: http://www.splunk.com/view/SP-CAAAGK3?jvi=o4U8VfwL

* Hadoop Software Engineer: Usage of Hadoop is exploding to do batch-oriented processing on massive quantities of data.

Providence, RI - Swipely (https://swipely.com)

Senior UX Engineer

Want to change the world? Love creating awesome user experiences? Keep reading.


Swipely revolutionizes how local merchants do business, arming them with innovative technology that puts the clunky, archaic systems used by big retailers to shame. We're the Robin Hood of business, disrupting the payment space to enable the little guys to do what only the big guys can, and then some. We interact directly with both merchants and their customers, impacting the personal experience on both sides in deep, meaningful ways. We turn rewards and loyalty upside-down (or, as we see it, rightside-up!) by giving points and discounts to customers through their credit card, without the need for special cards, mobile apps, bar codes, or anything else that gets in the way of the experience. We analyze every payment transaction, providing intuitive reports and automated tools for merchants that use them to grow and deeply engage their customers. And that's just the beginning of the possibilities with our passionate team, unique resources, and mission to make our merchants successful!


Combine a world-class front-end team with a powerfully creative atmosphere, and you get a compelling culture that liberates us all to envision and realize innovative product ideas every day. You will push your own limits of what you think is possible with a user experience. You will propose and refine new concepts, comps, technologies, and solutions, and get the support needed across the company to realize the untapped potential we have yet to discover. You will work with top sales, marketing, and product talent that deeply values innovation and the engineers that drive it.

Evolution is our greatest ally. We built the first incarnation of Swipely with jQuery, experimented with Backbone yet quickly realized we needed more structure, and now cruise on YUI3, with YUI3.5 around the corner. We rock MVC-driven, single-page applications, fully templatized Handlebars views, restful JSON persistence to our Rails backends, frontend unit and integration tests, and (soon!) a pushState architecture with hot data visualizations.

We always track and contribute to new technologies like D3, Node.js, Ember, Harmony, CoffeeScript, and Less. Exploration and collaboration are part of our culture, and any topic that can improve our engineering efforts is fair game, including NoSQL storage, Nginx/Unicorn architecture, and deployment and continuous integration tools.


You love what you do. You wake up every day more passionate about the web’s IxD models and UX than the day before. You demand the highest quality of your projects and want to work with people who demand and inspire the same, from the code down to the pixels. You get energized when opening new Fireworks and Photoshop comps and diving deep with designers.

You are self-directed and take initiative with confidence, yet know when to include others. You communicate effectively and thoughtfully. You appreciate the value of documentation. You are accountable for the entire user experience, from conception to production.

You love contributing to opensource. Your Github profile is a hive of exciting collaborations. You strive to learn and shape emerging projects. You lead and inspire others with your own applications and sites in your free time. You go out for drinks with your friends and have engrossing discussions about the web. You love freenode.

Your JavaScript knowledge is one of your greatest assets. You instinctively understand where native JavaScript ends and frameworks begin. Your extensive experience with MVC and design patterns guides you to insightful and intuitive solutions. You are eager to define new TDD and BDD frontend flows. You’re gratified that your language of choice is currently the most popular on Github and is evolving in leaps and bounds on the server-side. You love your backend developer. You regard as common knowledge that robust, performant code is integral to a compelling UX.

Your HTML5 and CSS3 expertise expands as fast as the specs are updated. You shiver with anticipation for Level 4 CSS selector support, consistent gradient rule syntax, and native grid layouts. You rock the Chrome Dev channel and wish the Safari updates were out already. You crave responsive design. You know when to go web versus native.


Swipely is small yet growing rapidly with explosive signup rates (seriously, off the charts!) offering Silicon Valley style startup perks and more. We've got you covered on hardware -- configure your own laptop and bring on the Happy Hacker keyboards, dual-monitors, and pairing stations. Travel expenses, conference tickets, industry and social events? Check! Aeron chairs, daily catered lunches from the finest restaurants around (they are our merchant partners, after all!), all the snacks, beverages, and happy hours you can handle? Done, done, and done!

Residing at 39 Pike Street in the Creative Capital that is Providence, you'll find us strategically located between the humming downtown and the vibrant campuses of Brown and the Rhode Island School of Design, a block away from the best coffee shop in the city.

Everyone in our company, from sales to engineering, is searching for you RIGHT NOW and wants to be working with you yesterday. Do us a favor; reach out and tell us about yourself.
