Big Data/Distributed Systems Software Engineer

AppMonsta collects massive amounts of data about mobile apps and turns it into actionable metrics for a wide variety of business customers ranging from investors to health care companies to startups. We really love data, building distributed systems, and helping people understand complicated market dynamics through our data.

We're looking for a distributed systems/big data software engineers to join our distributed team. You'll take ownership of our crawl & data pipeline, keeping them running with high uptime, scaling them up to handle load, and adding new data sources and new features to help our customers make even better decisions. Experience with distributed systems and/or big data is a huge bonus - we're looking for people that have a good intuition about what good architecture looks like, and who can grow into leadership roles.

Our current tech stack is mostly python, linux, aws (ec2, s3, & emr mostly), mongodb, and redis. If you haven't worked with individual pieces of this before it's fine - we like working with smart people that are comfortable working in a distributed systems/big data/cloud environment. We're happy to help you get up to speed with anything you haven't seen before. We practice peer code review and continuous deployment on all our code and systems.

Our entire team works remotely. We're very flexible about where and when you work, as long as you ship code, keep systems online, and are reachable by other team members for part of the day. We stay in touch via a team chatroom and weekly team video chats, with impromptu 1-on-1 video chats whenever there's a detailed issue to discuss. To make this work, you'll need to be in a compatible timezone (between PDT(UTC-08) and CET(UTC+1)), and be very fluent writing and speaking english. Like getting out of the house to work? Ask about our mobile internet subsidy:)

This is a full time, longterm opportunity. If this sounds exciting, please send us your resume and a couple hundred lines of some code you've written (preferably python), so we can get a sense for your coding style.

SEEKING FREELANCER. Remote preferred.

Nothing glamorous, but we need a few good folks to help build Wordpress themes. We'd give you sliced HTML, you'd turn it into a theme.

If you're interested drop me a line with your rates (george at ill-k.com). Strong preference for folks who can give an estimate and stick with it (as opposed to hourly/daily billers).


Freelancers / consultants, I'm doing some research and would appreciate your input. Help a fellow entrepreneur out and maybe learn something valuable in the process.

If nothing else, you may get some referrals from me down the line. "Where can I find a good developer for X?" is a question I hear not infrequently.

I'd like to talk about your business goals and experiences with finding clients. This would be a short phone call / Skype call.

SEEKING WORK - NYC or remote.

I am a software engineer who focuses on Android development. Within the last 2 years, I have worked on projects for for small and large startups, as well as for brands such as AT&T, Anheuser Busch and Victoria Secret. Within that period I have completed over seven apps and two mobile SDKs. I am deeply passionate about mobile development and creating top-notch experiences.

What can I do for you? Here are some things I specialize in:

* iOS to Android Ports. Do you have an iOS app that you want to port to Android? I can take the existing iOS experience, modify it to conform to Android standards and deliver a polished high-quality Android app. I have done this successfully for multiple clients such Gving and Snapr (see my portfolio below [1]).

* Web Apps. Do you have a mobile site that you want to convert to an app? I can package the mobile web content and create a mobile app using a standard solution like PhoneGap or a custom web wrapper. For more advanced projects I can create a hybrid app that combines the best of the web and native worlds to fully access all the capabilities of the mobile device. Some sample projects in this category include JackThreads and Snapr (see my portfolio below [1]).

* App Rescue and App Optimization. Do you have an Android app that isn't quite working? Perhaps it crashes, it's slow or has other problems? I can perform a complete analysis, diagnose the issues and quickly fix them. For a sample project in this category see Loc8te in my portfolio below [1].

* SDKs. Do you have some awesome stuff that you want everyone to use in their own apps? I can put together a feature rich SDK that lets other developers easily access your app's functionality / services. I have done this for Snapr and Loc8te (see my portfolio below [1]).

Feel free to get in touch. My portfolio and email are listed below.

SEEKING FREELANCER - Austin, remote Seeking experienced PHP developer that has familiarity with Postgres databases. Geo-spatial experience preferred.

The project is development of PHP-based website to search and display data from a remote postgres db. Prototype website has been built, now need to implement change list and prepare a client-ready product for beta testing. We have a vision (and carefully prepared descriptions) of what we want, but the developer will need to be an active participant in the debate of the best way to achieve it.

We prefer someone in the Austin, TX area for meeting 1-3 times per week, but are open to telecommute arrangements provided you are in a similar (+ or - 2hr) time zone. We will require regular telephone meetings for telecommute arrangements. The developer will need to sign a work-for-hire agreement.

Project length is 6 months at ~30 hr/weeks These time estimates are only approximations. The project is an AGILE development, so we will be redefining new goals every 10 days as clients give us feedback.

We are a small startup backed by an established company. You'll be working in a 3-4 man team in a professional, result-driven environment. This project serves the oil and gas sector in a proven market with a desired product.

Starting rate is $15/hr commensurate with experience, plus bonuses.

direct emails to bradley.taft.smith@gmail.com; please include "HN" in the subject so I know you saw me here.

> Starting rate is $15/hr commensurate with experience, plus bonuses.

This project sounds interesting. Did you happen to accidentally leave off a zero in the hourly rate? If so I'd be interested in following up further.

I think the only place he's going to get $15 an hour is from one of the former soviet republics these days...

I do understand your typo - Count me in, but I will do it for $145.00 USD an hour.

SEEKING WORK - Remote, Amsterdam, London

Syadmin as a Service

Just because you don't have a full-time Ops person on the team, it doesn't mean you don't deserve the best when it comes to scaling, resilience and reliability.

I work with startups, web agencies and small businesses to help them spend less time worrying about technical problems, and more time growing their business.

= How can I help you? These are some of the services I provide:

- Expert sysadmin services, on tap

- Automated server provisioning and management

- Server maintenance and optimisation

- Reduce your AWS bill (I helped one client reduce their bill by 45%)

- Migrate high-traffic web apps to AWS

- Quickly get up and running with tools like Puppet

= Why choose me?

I am a sysadmin who loves to efficiently solve business problems. With a DevOps background, twelve years of sysadmin experience, and a passion for problem-solving, I am keen to help HNers achieve their goals.

I'm writing a book on AWS System Administration that will be published by O'Reilly later this year.

Here's an AWS case study for an infrastructure I built: http://aws.amazon.com/solutions/case-studies/fashiolista/

This week I'll be talking at Puppet Camp Amsterdam about how to get the most of out AWS and Puppet.

If you think these services could help your business grow, let's talk. mike@fadedink.co.uk

SEEKING WORK - London or remote.

I specialize in algorithmic problems. Here are some things I've been working on lately:

Scalable recommendations engine - https://github.com/jamii/springer-recommendations

Concise pattern matching and parsing - https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4902219

Parallelizing a constraint solver - http://scattered-thoughts.net/blog/2012/12/19/search-trees-a...

I have a strong background in math (real analysis, probability, discrete maths) and computer science (randomized algorithms, AI / epistemic logic, machine learning). I'm comfortable with clojure, python, erlang and ocaml but I will learn whatever is the right tool for the job.

I would consider full-time work for the right problem/team. I'm also interested in partnering with other freelance developers to cover the whole stack.

SEEKING WORK - Chicago, remote

I've been freelancing/consulting for a while, and this summer I'm joining up with two friends (a designer and programmer) who haven't done any contract work before.

We intend to focus on web development due to common experience, but I have mobile development experience and they are interested in doing mobile as well. We'll be putting up a website soon, but if you want to talk to us ahead of time, shoot me an email: mvz@mvz.so


I have been shipping software for more than 10 years now, and love building high-quality products (or at least try my best for it!). I started freelancing a few months ago after my stint as a single founder. One of my first clients was a HN member for whom I did remote contract work for almost a couple of months.

I am proficient with Ruby on Rails and generally quite adept at picking up new technologies as per the needs of the product. I call myself a generalist, and if you are a non-technical person, I can handle most of the things for you that go in to building & launching a software product (including screen flows, server-side programming, system administration, analytics & a little bit of digital marketing.)

To give an example of me trying out new things, my last consulting assignment was related to conversion optimization(s) and driving growth for a startup in the education domain. I am up for any work that is challenging & stimulating.

References from previous clients are available on request.

Please see my profile for the contact & other relevant information. Just drop a line to say hello, it's always good to interact with fellow HN members!

SEEKING FREELANCER | Designer | Switzerland or remote

I run a small web consulting agency. From time to time we are looking for some talented designers to offload some of our mockup/sketching/design work.

A typical job would involve the following: We create a detailed sitemap with all the contents and the website's structures. We put together a specification of designs/websites and design elements that the customer likes. We would then send all of that to you along with our budget, and you would create an awesome design out of that, investing as much time as possible based on the pre-defined budget. That's where we pick up again, finalize the design with the client and create the website.

If you feel that you could help us and are confortable with that project based/fixed rate workflow, please email freelance-designer@mobweb.ch along with:

- Some of your recent design work - Your average hourly rate

I'm very good at finding solutions to complex problems, enjoy rescuing projects in trouble, and like working with technology in general. I always chatting about requirements, feel free to drop me a line at tom@tbbpolska.com


I'm looking for someone who has a lot of experience in quality frontend development for mobile web apps. I run a dating site and I need to build a mobile web version of it (not responsive, 100% built for mobile). As an example of what I'm looking for, check Facebook's mobile web version out, since it's quite close.

I'm not set in any particular JS library, although desktop site uses jQuery. Use of LESS is a plus.

No need to write any backend code, I'll take care of that.

If instead of needing 100% accurate screenshots/mockups you can get a) the desktop version's pages / look and b) inspiration from other apps (like Facebook's) and your own experience; and build nice looking designs / layouts by yourself, that's also a big plus (less work for me).

If you're interested let's talk details, my email is on my profile.

SEEKING FREELANCER | Magento Dev | Switzerland or remote

I run a small web consulting agency that specializes in e-commerce. We mostly work with Magento and from time to time are just too swamped so we are looking for a skilled freelancer that knows the platform and would be willing to take some work of our hands. We are looking for a long-term partnership with varying workload. The tasks are strictly development related, no design skill necessary. The only requirements are long-term availability, understanding of GIT and clear communication.

Please email magento-dev@mobweb.ch and also include your Skype ID so we can chat directly.

SEEKING WORK: Remote, Kent, London

Have a Software Development team, want to get them up to speed on Continuous Integration / Delivery?

I think that remote development work is going to become the dominant trend. And to get there we all have to learn Continuous Integration, like 5 years ago we all had to learn unit testing.

I am a long time Python developer, turned CTO (so I know how to talk everyone's language) and I love to help teams go from pushing releases out, to smoothly waving them goodbye several times a day.

SEEKING WORK - I am graduating student from IIT Delhi, India

Following is my experience and list of projects with links. (The same is on my gist https://gist.github.com/sravfeyn/13534c67812183235a2c )

Some of projects are on [my github](http://github.com/sravfeyn)


I shipped products outside of College/Work


* I hacked around [our campus shared-ssh spaces](http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3554318) to [automate file-sharing via peer-server-peer](https://github.com/sravfeyn/SparkDC), when the campus LAN was blocked.

* I created an [instant-search for movies](http://instamovi.com), when I realized more movie buffs like myself want quick ratings, trailers for movies as they type in names.

* I fixed [event-publishing in our campus](http://www.iitdevents.appspot.com/SetupCalenders), with an automated event update system, that scans for events on FB pages, Google Calenders of our campus boards.


I have worked in a high-tech start-up


I worked in a [high-tech Valley based start-up](https://angel.co/hachi) as a tech intern and then as tech consultant when I figured out start-ups are where my solutions can address a million-people's problems.

I pushed code in first week, solved problem of finding network reach (# of people you can connect to using your FB, LI, TW friends) until four degrees. Latter, I PoC-ed a new Architecture for improving search speed (based on six fields in a combined graph of FB, LI, TW. It's an awesome product for networking, you should [check-out](http://gohachi.com)). We brainstormed and after great set of changes from team, started implementing it.

This speed can only be possible at start-up

I loved it and I decided to work for a start-up where the most awesome people solve hardest problems making life simpler and a little magical.


Let's talk


If you are building an awesome product with smart people where none cares about titles but everyone has a part of product-ownership, talk to me. I would love to talk you about an opportunity at your start-up. Ping me on gmail sravfeyn@gmail.com or [twitter](http://twitter.com/sravfeyn) or a leave comment below and I will get back to you

Just fyi, your links are formatted for Markdown but won't parse b/c HN doesn't use any kind of Markdown, it's almost pure raw text [1].

Best way is just include them inline, or with a footnote marker [2] and the actual link at the end.

[2]: http://www.example.com/

Off topic, but re. your [1] above: How does one get to know of such links on HN? :) I might have not looked closely enough, but it does not seem to be linked to from anywhere on the main HN site. Also looked at the Guidelines and it is not there either.
