Matasano - New York City, Chicago, San Francisco Bay Area

We break into banks. And hospitals. And financial firms. And social media startups. And any other business that puts an open port between itself and the big bad world.

Matasano is looking for appsec consultants, now and forever. What does that mean?

We dig deep. Our consultants spend their days sliding up and down the ladder of abstraction, rapidly assimilating unfamiliar systems (and then breaking them). One week you're pulling apart macros in a Lisp app; the next, you're on your hands and knees crawling through x86 disassembly.

We move fast. Our projects run on tight deadlines: one or two weeks is typical. Recently we wrote a bespoke proxy to rip apart a custom encrypted protocol, tamper with messages, and cobble it back together again. That could be a two-week job in itself. At Matasano, that's just Tuesday.

We find bugs. Not just in applications, but in the tools they're built with. That includes some of the biggest open-source and proprietary software stacks in the world.

This is the Mission: Impossible of software gigs, and we need the best people to get the job done. NO PRIOR APPSEC EXPERIENCE REQUIRED. We need great software developers and fast learners, for we intend to go in harm's way. If this sounds interesting to you, we should absolutely talk.

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of software applications?

Matasano knows.

Full benefits. Free books. Really smart coworkers. For more information, visit http://www.matasano.com/careers.

Looking for a taste of what we do? Shoot an email to cryptopals@matasano.com. We'll get you started with 48 problems (and counting) of real-world cryptography problems. This is the best answer you will ever get to the question: "Why shouldn't I roll my own crypto?"

Note to employers: this is how a job posting should read. Sufficient detail, makes you want to work for them, scares you into sending your resume, then is soft and sweet with the benefits. And the humor is an added bonus. I read this in the movie narrator voice, "In a world...."

I don't have quite such a way with words, but Matasano is awesome. It's also worth noting that they take interns (full disclosure: me, twice) and yes- you will do those things, for real, immediately. Don't know how? Ask and prepare to learn.

I say to all of you who like to break things: talk to them.


explain? curious why the founder of Matasano is surprised...

I did not see that job posting coming.

do you really use lisp on a /(semi)?regular/ basis?!

I wouldn't say we use lisp. We do test lisp apps every so often.

No, he's just messing with you. It's mostly SML.

Hmm. What about haskell, or, going in a completely different direction, assembler?

Also, why sml over lisp?

I think Tom is messing with you on that one.

Full disclosure: ex-Matasano here, and die-hard lisp dude.

If somebody writes it, they will figure out how to rip it apart. Bank on it.

SpaceX - Hawthorne, CA (LA area).

Want to help build rockets? SpaceX is looking for software engineers! If you want to build something tangible: large machines that make fire and go to space, as opposed to the latest "social app", SpaceX is a great opportunity. Here, real things happen:



Some of the openings we have are for: flight software, simulations software, and front end engineers. See our career page: http://www.spacex.com/careers.php

Edit: We don't do remote, and you need to be a US citizen or permanent resident.

Would love to work here (PhD in CS) but I don't have a greencard :(

I just applied for the Avionics (Software) team. I'm still a college student, so I applied for Internship/Co-op. Looking forward to hearing back from you guys!

Any possibility of the relaxing the US citizen requirement in the future?

I really don't think it's up to them unfortunately. As a non-US student looking to apply for one of their internships, I was burned by that too. The regulation in question is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Traffic_in_Arms_R...

In that article under "Exemptions and Treaties" [1], it says that Canada is exempt. Does that mean Canadians can work at SpaceX?

[1] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Traffic_in_Arms_...

I remember mentioning that I'm a Canadian student to whomever I spoke on the phone with from SpaceX, and they said no, but I don't know if they knew about this exemption, or if SpaceX is just generally very broad in this regard to make things easier.

I think what is being discussed is a TN Visa for Canadian citizens. Generally, it is very easy for any Canadian to come work in the U.S. as they just need to go to the boarder to have some paperwork signed off for their TN Visa. But, the problem with SpaceX is that we have to follow ITAR Regulations and can only employ permanent residents (U.S. Citizens and Green Card Holders). TN Visa Holders unfortunately do not fall within either of those groups. If anyone is interested in working at SpaceX, then definitely apply or contact me. Cheers!

Not that I'm aware of.

Unlikely, it originates in the US government export control laws. (Turns out rocket technology can be used for nefarious purposes...)

I watched an interview with Elon Musk last night where he was discussing his due diligence before starting SpaceX. He went to Russia to see what it would cost to buy an ICBM from them (without the nuke). They thought he was crazy but knew he was also crazy rich so the Russians took the meeting. The funny (funny scary not ha-ha) part was that, as the discussions continued, the Russians intimated that they were open to selling the nuke as well as the rocket.

i think the annecdote was something like "he approached NASA and they said it was unthinkable. Then he approached the Russian agency, and they said it would be very expensive" so he started to talk with the Russians. I never heard the nuke thing, so i'd be interested if you can find as well.

here's the negotiating part: http://www.esquire.com/features/americans-2012/elon-musk-int...

""" He was ready to buy three Russian ICBMs for $21 million when the Russians told him that no, they meant $21 million for one. "They taunted him," Cantrell says. "They said, 'Oh, little boy, you don't have the money?' I said, 'Well, that's that.' I was sitting behind him on the flight back to London when he looked at me over the seat and said, 'I think we can build a rocket ourselves.'" """

Do you have a link to that interview?

San Francisco, CA - Zenbox. Software Engineer.

We're a YC company wrangling SaaS to work together (as they should), starting by bringing the biggest apps our customers use right into Gmail.

We work with dozens of API's to show our users profiles of their customers without having to jump out of the email flow - imagine having http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtzqRSlgqkw available when helping customers.

Thousands of people use it every day for hours on end, and are happy to pay for it to make sure they can continue using it. But there's still so much polish and improvement possible.

Looking for an engineer who loves the craft, who cares about building product, and is excited about helping customers.

This is both UI and backend work.

Languages: Clojure, Clojurescript, Ruby, Javascript.

Webs - DC (Silver Spring area)

Webs is the rarest of all birds: an actual consumer web company in DC. We don't do contracting, work for the government, or apply for grants. We sell a product to real people that makes them happy and helps them make money.

Webs helps small and micro businesses get online with our in-browser web site builder and Facebook engagement tools. We do the hard technical work so that our customers can easily and beautifully build a site, improve their SEO, increase their site stats, and sell their products online.

We're always looking for excellent developers, whether you're front-end, back-end, or full-stack. You'll get to work with other smart people, have input into the product, contribute to open source, and enjoy our hackathons.

Our front-end is a great new architecture with Backbone, Less, RequireJS, and all the other new hotness. Plus our main product (a WYSIWYG website builder) is interactive enough to actually need these things to provide customer value. Our back-end is a mix of Java, Groovy, Rails and Node, with Oracle and Mongo holding the data.

We have a lot of fun projects coming up. If you're interested, feel free to email me at adam@webs.com and we can see if there's a good fit.

Good on ya! Hope more DC startups would get off the government teat.

Hey, while I'm not applying, I'm wondering what technology stack iCloud is using. Could you give some details?

The stack varies depending on the application. We're mostly built on top of JVM, and mostly Java. There's a mix of other languages and technologies as well. Our datastores are a mix of SQL and NoSQL, from several different Vendors depending on the application.

Most importantly, there isn't a dogma here. These decisions are fully driven by engineering.


I am sure the answer is no but does Apple allow for Remote work?

Austin, TX | Full-time, Intern | Software Engineer

Come pair with me at mobi!

We're seeking talented, full-stack software engineers that are smart and get things done. We're most excited about finding seniors, but all experience levels are welcome. We're looking for candidates in, or willing to relocate to, Austin, TX.

mobi is a B2B mobile fleet logisitics solution. We help companies with mobile fleets service their customers better and faster by optimizing service routes and analyzing GPS data. This means we also help save fuel, tires and brake pads to keep the world a little bit more green.

Our tech stack contains a non-trivial amount of all of the following technologies: Java (Spring/MyBatis/Hibernate) Ruby (Sinatra and maybe Padrino or Rails soon) JavaScript (AngularJS/jQuery) SQL (T-SQL and maybe Postgres or Mongo soon)

We're not dogmatic about the tech we use. We believe strongly in using the tool that helps us accomplish the task in the best and fastest way possible.

We don't expect you to be familiar with all of the technologies we use. There is a very strong learning culture at mobi. Therefore we do expect you to be willing (nay, excited) to learn about the tech we use that you don't know and to teach us about the tech you use that we don't know. We also expect you to be comfortable with test driving the code you write, with a pair, the large majority of the time. Of course, working in pairs doesn't always make sense, nor does TDD, and we're comfortable with those exceptions.

mobi offers competitive salary; competitive ping pong tournaments; free soda, snacks and beer; unlimited time off as needed; great views from our downtown office; monthly company get-togethers to celebrate our accomplishments

If you're interested, my personal email is in my profile. Here's an explanation of roughly what kind of interview process you could expect: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=5441267

Factual is currently hiring engineers and data lovers of all levels in Palo Alto, Los Angeles, and Shanghai.

We were recently named one of "50 Disruptive Companies in 2013" by MIT Technology Review (http://www2.technologyreview.com/tr50/2013/).

Factual has venture funding from Andreessen-Horowitz and our partners/customers include Facebook, Yelp, Foursquare, Trulia, and Newsweek.

There are many challenging problems to work on at all layers of the stack: data cleaning and canonicalization, storage, deduping, serving, APIs, improving data using machine learning, etc. If you love data, Factual is the place to be. Our main criteria are that you're smart and get things done, but you'll get bonus points for experience with Clojure (http://www.factual.com/jobs/clojure), machine learning, NLP, algorithm design, or Hadoop.

Our LA office is our headquarters and our new Palo Alto office is still small, so new hires would have a huge impact on the culture there.

Top 5 reasons why you should move to Berlin, now:

1. Lowest livings costs with highest standard of living. Stay in gorgeous, perfectly renovated apartments in pre-WWII residential buildings with high ceilings, right in the middle of the center and pay a fraction of costs of any other capital (even cheaper than any Eastern European capital). No need for a car—Berlin has one of the densest subway nets and wide streets make biking fun + we have Car2Go and Drive-Now (these are world's best smartphone-supported car sharing systems with brand new cars at every corner, cheaper than owning a car or riding a cab). In addition, Germany has an amazing social health care system including health, unemployment and pension (when working as an employee).

2. A vibrant and fast growing ecosystem of smart people. A vast number of new software talents, founders, software companies and VCs are moving to Berlin, every day (Twitter, Google, Soundcloud, Early Bird, Mozilla and many more).

3. People here are open-minded, outgoing, mix well and international—no need to learn German, everyone speaks English! Making new friends is a matter of days. Visit tons of networking and startup events, every week.

4. Easy work permissions—Europeans do not need any and can work from day one.

5. Berlin's night life is unmatched, huge and changing every day (plus ridiculously cheap). Berlin has got some of the most dazzling, naughty, and original clubs on the face of the Earth.

Berlin is calling and getting the new tech hub of Europe. If you are passionate about building great software, we’d love to talk with you. If you don't live in Berlin yet, we could help to fix that.

=> http://urge.io/jobs

If you are doing Node.js or JS, apply today—we are looking for multiple Node.js Software Engineers.

http://versusio.com/en/vienna-vs-berlin recommends I stay in Vienna over Berlin. We even have a seaside beach here in landlocked Vienna, an amenity which Berlin is lacking.

More seriously, the app looks great and produces some impressive analysis (if that's what the job is connected to).

I sent you an email last month, applying for the lead iOS engineer, but no one replied. Are you still hiring for that position? Alternatively, would you consider a candidate without node.js experience?

you had a month to learn it, what's stopping you! :)

Greplin, all over again?

CircleCI (https://circleci.com/jobs) - SF or REMOTE fulltime (in the US)

At CircleCI we're building Heroku for Continuous Integration and Deployment. We have traction and revenue (and funding!). Our customers love us, because we move quickly and provide amazing support. All employees talk to customers and are on support rotation.

We're still a small team, so you'll have a large impact on company culture. We're highly influenced by Valve's Employee handbook. SF-local employees have catered lunch every day.

- Frontend Engineer - You'll work on improving the page responsiveness, adding new features and improving the out-of-the-box experience and UX. Our frontend is a single page javascript app, using HamlCoffee, Less and Knockout. We have a lot of interesting design and data-visualization problems that need to be solved, as well as A/B testing, landing page creation and funnel optimization.

- Junior Business Person - This job is very poorly defined, which means you get to make it up! You'll probably be doing a little bit of sales, a little bit of marketing and a lot of hustle. Knowing some HTML, JS or design are a huge plus.

Check out our shiny jobs page at https://circleci.com/jobs . Include samples of awesome stuff you've done.

Also, I forgot to mention we're also looking for Backend Engineers. Our entire server is written in Clojure. We're looking for candidates with experience in any "weird" language: Clojure, Scheme, CL, Haskell, OCaml, Erlang, Brainfuck.

Mutually Human - Grand Rapids, Michigan



We are a small team of software craftsmen (10 of us right now) passionate about making people's lives better through software.

A little bit about us:

  - We write custom software of all shapes and sizes for clients all over the US
  - Though everyone here is fluent in Ruby, we're more concerned with using the 
    right tool for the job. In the past two months, I've worked with Objective-C,
    Javascript (Backbone+PhoneGap), and a little bit of Java and C#.
  - We practice a sustainable pace. We recognize that we each have lives, activities, 
    and families outside of work. Late nights and > 40 hour weeks are rare by design.
  - We're agile, but not dogmatic about it. Our process evolves to suit our needs.
  - We offer competitive salaries, health/vision/dental insurance, 401(k) + match, 
    quarterly profit sharing, weekly catered lunches, and a top-floor office with
    snacks, guitars, and your choice of standing or sitting desks.
A little bit about Grand Rapids:

  - 2.5 hours from Chicago, 2.5 hours from Detroit, and less than an hour to the beach.
  - Lots of great beer. Founders Brewery (a mile from our office) has 3 beers in the
    Beer Advocate top 15. HopCat is a “World Class” bar on BA. 
    Just look here: http://beeradvocate.com/beerfly/city/43
  - Affordable housing. If you’re renting anything larger than a breadbox in the 
    Bay Area or NYC, you can afford a house here (or a much nicer rental). I bought 
    a nice house with a mortgage payment drastically lower than the rent of my 
    1 bedroom apartment in Mountain View.
  - A growing economy driven by technology, healthcare, and a growing list of startups. 
    The energy here around the growth in technology and the support for entrepreneurs 
    is infectious.
A little bit about you:

  - You love writing software, and you have a few years of experience doing it.
  - You learn new stuff quickly. You’ve used a lot of technologies, but you’re not
    afraid to use more. It would be nice if you use and love Ruby, but not required.
  - You believe software is written for humans, not computers.
  - You want to come into work every day and enjoy the people you work with.
If you're interested, send me your resume/CV and a little bit about why you’re interested:


7 out of 9 people in your team wear glasses. Why? I don't know a percentage but isn't that really skewed?

It's actually higher than that…Ross is wearing glasses right now, but he doesn't have them on in his picture.

We also have a new hire who isn't on the site yet who wears glasses.

I guess people better wear glasses to the interview ;)

And be a white male.

Are you guys looking for people to work from home, or only considering people who will relocate?

We are believers in the value of cross-functional, co-located teams. We've tried remote workers in the past and discovered that it doesn't really work for us.

I guess the business of writing custom software doesn't scale, like any other dedicated service/consulting business.

What do you think about this?

In a consulting business, the typical way you make money is by selling time. A friend of mine has called this "Slavery to the Tyranny of the Billable Hour". The way to scale is by acquiring more time (aka more employees available to work for more hours) so you can bill more hours. It's ok for some, but diversification is better.

We've discovered that whenever you get a bunch of smart folk together who are passionate about what they do, other avenues open up. In our case, we've start forming teams around different business models and product ideas that attract us. These models and ideas are then selectively sponsored by the consultancy to go forward, develop something and release it to the world. The hope is that these new products and businesses would become a source of income for the whole team. As those products and new businesses scale, the consulting business profits, thus scaling through alternate means.

Full disclosure: I work with EJ at Mutually Human.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean. There are certainly larger companies than Mutually Human. If one wanted to work for a large company, I'm sure many will post in this thread… :)


- I'm learning new things all the time, at a faster pace than anywhere else I've worked. The company is very focused on everyone's growth.

- I actually have time for my family, personal projects, friends, etc, as we really do keep our hours reasonable.

- We have happy clients who love our work and are willing to pay well for it.

MH seems like a great place to work. I want to congratulate the founders on the culture they put in place. If I was brave enough to switch jobs, this would be the type of place near the top of my list.

Oh, sorry, I didn't mean the company size. Under scaling I meant "write once, sell million times", "have million clients", etc...

I work at MHS also, and FWIW we have created products in the past and also have a couple new products in the pipeline. We will probably never be a pure products company - but we think crafting our own products a really great way for us to flex our creative muscles and learn new things.

why is this relevant? [edit: fwiw, the question so obviously has the answer "no" (for hn-related values of "scale") that it doesn't seem to be an honest enquiry at all, but an attempt to make a point (for some hn-related value of "point").]

It might not be relevant in this particular thread. I was genuinely interested in the point of view of the person who is running such business.

EDIT: I see, but I guess I'm not that much HNer to agree with you. Anyway, I got quite interesting answers (including yours).

Ahh…I don't run the business. In fact, I'm a pretty recent hire.

From where I sit, it's clearly a different beast from where I've worked before (BigCo and a YC startup). We're probably not going to get rich or have a million-user product, but I wasn't ever chasing that anyways.

Amazon - Seattle WA

I'm looking for a Business Intelligence Engineer that can be my coworker in the Amazon Supply Chain. We coordinate with multiple software teams on hard problems, in a complex Systems Oriented Architecture, with huge opportunities for savings (We speak in $M, not $k). A business-focused intuition is a must, but we also require strong technical skills and an ability to understand how our software models a huge supply chain. We use many different tools for the job: Linux/ZSH, SQL, R, Ruby, Java, Optimization solvers, Geospatial tools/libraries, and pretty much anything else that gets the job done (don't forget email and telephones). We aren't afraid of digging deep into details like log files, but we also aren't afraid of working with datasets that range in the hundreds of billions of rows.

If that sounds like a domain you are interested in, contact me: tooned||amazon<>com

Amazon - Toronto, Canada

We're also rapidly growing our Toronto office, and are looking for Software Development Engineers of all levels, Project Managers, Development Managers, Web Developers, and UX Designer/Developers.

We have most of the same requirements that saosebastiao listed above. My own team's domain focuses on the problem of taking a warehouse of randomly stored items, plus a steady stream of customer orders (each for 1 to many items) and finding an efficient way to have warehouse associates collect those items so we can ship them all together to the right customer.

Other teams here work on a variety of other aspects of the software inside our fulfillment centers, parts of the Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA) website, and the tools used by the customer service associates.

If you're interested in Amazon Toronto, contact me. [The current username I am posting with] at amazon.

Canvas Networks - New York, NY - Fulltime, On-site or remote

Canvas Networks is looking for an iOS Engineer to join a small, close-knit team building DrawQuest — iPad's premier drawing community. We're venture funded and backed by an incredible group of investors, who include Union Square Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, Lerer Ventures, SV Angel, Founder Collective, Joshua Schachter, and Chris Dixon.

We're investing in mobile and tablet in a big way and are looking for someone to join our iOS engineering efforts. We're a young company with a brand new product, so this is a good opportunity to grow with us as we grow as a company, and a great time to join and make an impact.

We're tackling some interesting product and engineering challenges. To help us iterate and sustain momentum, we practice continuous deployment to the extent possible, which demands technical creativity with native Objective-C / Cocoa apps. On our backend servers, we ship upwards of twenty times a day — iOS development makes things more complex but it's an area we're interested in improving.

We ask a lot of our developers, but we offer a lot in exchange:

* Perks and benefits. Free lunch, an office arcade (3 cabinets!), competitive equity and salary with full benefits (health, dental, vision), take-what-you-need vacation.

* A great working environment, including whatever tools you need. Big monitors, the hardware setup you want. Sit-stand desks if you're into that kind of thing.

* A voice in product development. Decisions aren't made in a vacuum. Be a key player in building an amazing product.

* Transparency into the business. We review financials as a team monthly. Meetings aren't held behind closed doors.

Our office is in Union Square, Manhattan. If you don't live in New York City, we'll fix that.

Austin, TX (On-Site or Remote with Occasional On-Site)

Ember Endeavour for the Effervescent


A bootstrapped company with over $100K in revenue (and now a part of the Austin Capital Factory accelerator). One awesome startup house in Austin, TX. A boxer-pug puppy named Heidi Klum. And an awesome team of six friends and colleagues.

We run a marketplace where students can purchase lessons online or over the phone with a nationwide network of tennis instructors. SEO is our game and over 75% of our customers come from organic traffic. Why tennis? Our founders met on the University of Connecticut tennis team and have been instructors themselves. We ran the business manually and with thousands of static pages for a whole year while teaching ourselves to code and eventually adding another rails developer to the team.

Summer nears and our application has come a long way. It works. But we want it to do more than work. We want it to provide an amazing experience, for our students, for our instructors, and for ourselves as we continue to build, test, and iterate. We want an Ember App.

Here’s some reasons why: -We sell lessons for individuals or groups of 2-6 in pre-set ‘lesson packages’, each with their own per-lesson-price. Which should be displayed as the student chooses their options. With one line of code. -Our existing tennis court location manager and schedule availability features are just calling to be Emberified -Happiness is a readable code base -Page loads are for suckas -And more

Think you can help get us there? Let us know. We’re a laid back group that enjoys working hard and generating value. Ideally we’d like to find another team member with some experience and looking to explore a new adventure. If you’re interested, send an e-mail introducing yourself and providing some links to code samples/contributions to michael@mytennislessons.com.

P.S. And yes, we know there’s other types of fitness professionals out there who could use a similar service. Coming soon to a website near you ; )

HealthPost - Houston, TX - openings in both dev & sales

In the past I've gone into more details, but I'm going to make this short and sweet. We have 7 people. We're deploying to hospitals in 4 time zones and growing rapidly. We value creative people who will help dream up new products for our platform. We're pretty flexible, but at least at the beginning you need to be comfortable spending a higher amount of face-to-face time in our office.

Ruby on Rails Developer

At the moment, we want experienced web application developers who can point us to relevant accomplishments and will be happy to show us their abilities with a test project. We prefer friendly folks who are quick to ask questions and help each other out. We need self-starters who would enjoy the opportunity to brainstorm new ideas for our products and look forward to the opportunity to interact with customers.

Experienced Healthcare Salesperson

If you are an excellent salesperson highly experienced in sales to hospitals, this will be an outstanding opportunity for you. Customers are coming to us and we have had to do very little in sales. Our potential pipeline is huge and you could make a huge impact on our expansion. We need someone who already knows what matters to the various stakeholders in each hospital and can capably explain how our products are a win for all of them. A talented engineering team is expanding the cloud-based software platform and also ready to tackle any new ideas you bring us.

PHP/LAMP Development - Newport Beach, CA, USA (Orange County)

The Boras Corporation, widely regarded as the premier single-sport athlete representation firm in the world, is seeking a full-stack developer to expand the capabilities of our internal web-based applications.

We need someone comfortable and experienced across the entire range of the development process, from designing and polishing the user-facing bits to hacking on the plumbing.

We take great pride in being the best at what we do, and most of us have played team sports at a high level. It's a great place to work with low turnover, and we're excited to find someone new to join our team.

This is a full-time position in our Newport Beach office.

Obviously we're not your typical HN poster, but if it sounds like a good fit let us know at jobs at borascorp.com.

Come work at Rackspace near the Exceptional.io and Mailgun team in the heart of San Francisco (2nd and Folsom), we have 14k sq feet and are expanding to another 14k sq feet within 3 months. Rackspace focuses on building big systems to serve builders and are incredibly customer-focused, dead set on building useful services that operate at scale!

There are various roles, here are some of the details:

* All: Get stuff done, people that are motivated to make an impact

* All: Excited to build new products, passion for new technology, new programming models

* Backend Engineer: Distributed systems experience, passion for large scale systems

* Frontend Engineer: Architecting interesting fully client side apps, dashboards, live updates, etc...

* Development Managers: Frontend team

* iOS/Android Engineer: Building the next generation iPhone/Android experience at a B2B company

* Open Source, we have an “Open First” motto, so write code and release it!

I was one of the Cloudkick founders and run the San Francisco office so please ping me directly, daniel.dispaltro@rackspace.com

How open are you to hiring people without distributed systems experience? I've interested in large scale distributed systems, but have no experience there. (I'm currently a functional programmer by trade, so I feel like there are a lot more MapReduce-esque insights left to be harvested.)

Absolutely, shoot me an email!

Regarding H1B cap - there are some other types of visas which allow employement. So I guess those can be used as a temporary workaround until next year.

Skype - Palo Alto, CA - Software Engineer Fulltime, H1B

We are building large-scale elastic services to support the evolution of the Skype network. The important part is that we have a lot of fun building and owning distributed systems and are looking for engineers who can come in and push their first feature to production within a few days of starting and who can also help us get that duration down to hours. The stack is primarily azure/.net/C#, although there is some node.js in the house and when we do UIs we don't use biggish server-side stacks. But when we do server-side systems we run them on 1000s of instances and support 10^5 req/sec all day, every day.

The key is that we own our own systems and hence our destiny. You can't ask for anything more than that.

You can contact me at f00biebletch at gmail (quicker) or you can go through the official posting (slower): https://careers.microsoft.com/jobdetails.aspx?ss=&pg=0&#...

I think Skype (now Microsoft) should be the primary example for others, to show that REMOTE employment should be pervasive these days.

DictateIT - London (North), UK - Fulltime

We're the UK's largest provider of digital dictation services to the NHS, having processed over 120 million lines of dictated letters and patient notes in the last year over more than two dozen hospitals and NHS Trusts using the platform we've built that covers everything from dictation caption through to voice recognition and outsourced transcription and then to digital signing and distribution. As we go forward we're using our platform as a way to give hospitals better tools to manage their patient information and records and help the NHS work more efficiently, as well as seeing what other services we can build using our large corpus of medical documents as a starting point.

I'm building a small but dedicated team of developers who are excited about what we're trying to do and interested in taking on new challenges while trying to bring innovation and disruption to health care in the UK. We're profitable and at the point where our growth is rapidly accelerating - we've winning tenders left, right and centre and all of our current clients are adding more users and departments to our current deployments.

Our current platform is front to back C# - WCF, ASP.NET MVC, WinForms and WPF, with SQLServer on the backend.

I'm looking for solid C# and ASP.Net developers from Junior to Senior level, though having specific C# experience is secondary to being willing to learn quickly and being passionate about technology as long as you've got other languages you're strong in.

Having experience in DB design and query tuning would be of special interest as we're dealing with high volumes of patient information and 100Gb+ datasets on some of our sites and we want to keep our system running as fast as possible!

We're looking to hire several developers, offering between £25k-£50k depending on skill set and experience. If you're interested or you've got any questions, drop me an e-mail at tech.recruitment@dictate.it and I'll do my best to answer anything you ask!

Fascinating - I worked on the original database application for tracking CAFE practices in the field as part of an internship program with Conservation International. We worked with a coffee co-op and field office in Chiapas, Mexico. It was entirely offline, based on Access, which was a strange journey for a developer mostly doing work on the web.

Hey, that's awesome! Was that around '06 or so? We came on board not too long after. Drop me a line sometime. ben@greenriver.com

Judicata - http://www.judicata.com

We are mapping the legal genome. Using data mining, semantic analysis, machine learning and human computer interface technologies, we are extracting deep meaning from legal documents and creating the most powerful litigation tools in the world. We're a team of 7. We develop in Python, Django, JavaScript and Java. And we've raised $2 million from Peter Thiel, Keith Rabois and SV Angel (David Lee) - all former lawyers.

Requirements: 3+ years of experience. B.S. / B.A. in Computer Science. Interest in U.S. law.

Go programmer.

No BS. No VCs to de with. You work, you get paid. No dumb meetings. Well funded business backed by 2 profitable businesses. MacBook Pro included.

You don't know Go? Want to learn it? Get in touch.

The position is no longer available. Please, no more emails. (:

Interesting. May I ask you - did you get a lot of emails from otherwise experienced candidates (e.g. 8+ years C++, etc...), or maybe the noise comes from the people who plan their first language to be Go?


Both. This ad works better than any other ad in this thread. :)

So it was your intention to get an attention of such a wide audience. I mean, some other posts here try to narrow the potential candidates pool.

In case you're interested - one of the main reason I didn't apply - I got an impression that this company can't provide a silicon valley level comparable compensations for senior engineers (I fall into "otherwise experienced" group). I might be wrong though...

Full-time JavaScript Developer, London Scirra (https://www.scirra.com)

We develop Construct 2, an HTML5 game engine which has been downloaded nearly 600,000 times in little over 2 years of our existence. Although we haven't been around very long, we're cash rich and have been operating profitably since day 1.

We need a talented Javascript developer to join our small team in Twickenham, SW London.

For information on how to apply, please see our webpage: http://www.scirra.com/careers

We look forward to hopefully hearing from some of you!

We have a ton of positions open at Rackspace (http://rackertalent.com).

But I'm specifically looking for a Linux Systems Engineer to help me with our Cloud DNS API product. We practice DevOps and agile and work very closely with developers and customers (internal and external).

This position is in the Austin, TX office, and there's a preference to be here, but talent trumps location.

Details here: http://jobs.rackspace.com/job/Austin-Linux-Systems-Engineer-...

San Francisco, Full time. H1Bs welcome.

We are also offering the first 25 people who apply through Hacker News a free $100 Cardpool Gift Card (can be used to buy virtually any other gift card in the US).

Cardpool.com (YC W10) is looking for software engineers to join our talented team of 4 engineers (total team size ~15 + customer service and fulfillment). We are also looking for a Senior/Director-level Account Manager to help develop, launch, and manage new high-profile partnerships. This person will be responsible for implementation, training, reporting, problem solving, growing the business, presenting to executives, and much more.

Cardpool makes it ridiculously easy to buy and sell gift cards. In the last 3.5 years, the company has grown from 2 guys in a living room to a company that helps hundreds of thousands of customers buy and sell over $100,000 in gift cards each day. We have been featured on CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, NPR, and The New York Times.

We pride ourselves on being an engineering-focused group (with experience @ Apple, Google, Amazon.com, Microsoft, MIT, CMU, UIUC, Harvard, and Brown) that moves quickly and builds great customer experiences. Some of the interesting technical and business challenges we're working on include real-time inventory management, dynamic pricing problems, high-performance transaction processing, security, data mining, API design, and ping-pong matchmaking algorithms :)

The ideal candidate would be excited by the prospect of working on a small group of highly technical engineers and enjoy having a ton of responsibility while learning something new almost daily. Experience working with Ruby, Python, or Ruby on Rails is a plus but not a requirement.

Cardpool has an incredible team, above-market compensation, and a generous profit-sharing program. We were acquired in 2011 and will appeal to candidates who are looking to work at a fun small startup-like environment but with the lifestyle (reasonable hours), benefits, and financial strength of a public company.

To learn more, head to http://www.cardpool.com/jobs or email us at jobs@cardpool.com (this goes straight to the founders).

Hope to hear from you soon! Anson, Founder/CEO/GM

San Francisco, Full-Time.

We're rethinking real-time collaboration software, on every major platform: Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, Web, even Linux!

Today, we're answering the question: "What's the best way to work together?" Tomorrow: "What's the best way to play together?"

To realize that vision, we're looking for:

* Design Hero - Own the UI, UX and creative direction of our products and the company. - Design for every major platform. - Solve really hard UX problems, centered around the question: "What's the best way to work together?"

* Engineering Hero - Do you want to contribute to and own major pieces of the next real-time collaboration platform? - Examples of some of the challenges ahead: reducing the screen sharing lag to 0, even in poor network conditions or on a mobile device. Writing mobile clients that meld the worlds of mouse pointers and touch together. Building a scalable architecture to support super low-lag video streaming to multiple parties simultaneously. - Making it "just work." - There's so much more. Email us.

* Growth Hero - Lead the effort to grow Screenhero's active userbase by orders of magnitude. - Understand analytics and measure the right things. - A/B testing invite flows, leveraging existing social networks, guerilla marketing.

Joining today will be akin to being one of the first employees at Skype or Dropbox.

Curious? Email us at everyone@screenhero.com

Cool product.... excited to try it out :)

EMC/Isilon - Seattle, WA. Full-Time, Remote, H1B

We're building the largest and fastest Distributed File System. We're open source - FreeBSD. We're solving real world problems like scalability, multi-tenancy, performance, etc.

Systems level engineers with C/UNIX background, email me:Alex.Brynza@Isilon.com

I'm a RoR developer working at a company in the Bay Area called Coupa Software. We're a provider of e-procurement software, which is enterprisey stuff that helps large companies manage their internal spending. Tech reporters often describe us as "Mint.com for businesses" but that's only a small part of what we do.

We generally target lots of very enterprisey customers, but we're still pretty small and not-corporate. At the moment the dev team (including PMs, UX, etc) is about 20 people. I like to think we're at a pretty good balance between startup and big company.

We're currently hiring "Ruby on Rails Developer, Integrations Engineer, Front End Developer, UX Designer, Visual Designer", but imho we're mostly in need of full stack devs. This company is growing very very very quickly, and flexible developers who can wear many hats are the best for that

We're in downtown San Mateo, 1 block from Caltrain. REMOTES, H1Bs, TNs (I am one! from Canada eh?) are all ok. Competitive pay, 401k, health insurance. WFH privileges, flex time, all that good stuff. An unlimited PTO system. And as a personal anecdote: I've experienced almost no overtime here, and virtually no pressure to overwork myself. Coupa respects a healthy work-life balance. There's a lot of room for self-management here; work the way you work best, show results, and you'll be given the freedom to do it however you like.

If anyone is interested, mail me at tim.herd @ coupa.com, paste your resume, github link, maybe a cover letter if you're feeling generous :D. If you're experienced with Rails (or someone who can get up to speed with minimal training), we'd love to have you.

We currently have an opening for a Front-end Engineer. Perks include shows for free and working on rad projects using the latest and greatest. Our demo allows us to not worry about older browsers so we get to have lots of fun on each project.


Skills with HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Responsive design and all other kinds of buzz words. You are self-aware, self-motivated, and self-disciplined. If you were a robot you would be a sentient robot… aware of your own robot-ness. You are a critical thinker who attacks and solves technical problems with the tenacity of a bengal tiger. You see everyone you meet as someone you can learn from. Except for those silver painted street performers. They have nothing for you. A good sense of humor

Niceties (Not requirements!):

Familiar with client-side MVC frameworks (Angular, Backbone, etc) Know “The Good Parts” of JavaScript Versioning systems (Git) Mobile development experience (Appcelerator Titanium) You have committed code to an open source project.

Why you’ll want to work with us:

Great pay and benefits. The opportunity to work on meaningful and challenging projects. The chance to be a part of a growing company. The opportunity to collaborate with an amazing team. Great new office space located in Old Town Sacramento. We have a strong commitment to training.

Globaldev - London, UK

Since October of last year our dev team has grown by 20% and we are doing everything in our power to position Globaldev as one of the most desirable companies for developers to work for. You'd be hard pushed to find another environment where you get to work on such a range of challenges. Everything from everyday web development, through to full on engineering on our RabbitMQ based email system that pushes out millions of emails every single day.

We have a development team based right next to Waterloo station in London and our HQ is in Windsor, Berkshire but you don't have to limit yourselves to those offices. We appreciate there are some outstanding developers out there who are only interested in remote work and we are more than happy to consider that option.

You can find more info about who we are and what the company does here: http://globalpersonals.co.uk/about-us/

You can also check out our tech blog here: http://globaldev.co.uk/blog/ (our ruby 2.0.0 post was linked in the official 2.0.0 release notes)

SwiftStack (http://swiftstack.com/jobs/) is hiring software developers at all levels of experience in San Francisco, CA.

Why Join SwiftStack?

You’ll work on a product that touches millions of people’s lives even if they don’t know it. The number of businesses using OpenStack in general and Swift in particular grows and grows, and it includes big names that make products that are used by both your little brother and your grandmother. You’ll work on a product that makes core OpenStack technology accessible to businesses of all kinds.

You’ll get open-source experience in a big way. At SwiftStack, we’re committed to strong participation in the OpenStack ecosystem in general and to contribution to Swift in particular. You’ll be a contributor to one of the most important Open Source projects currently active.

You’ll confront interesting problems every day. Writing a system like Swift and building a software ecosystem to surround it is the road less traveled. We aren’t writing yet another glorified CMS or social app or phone game. Whether it’s figuring out better algorithms for data placement, confronting a firehose of monitoring data, or determining how to integrate most flexibly with customers’ systems, there are always new and unusual problems to solve.

Interested? Send us an email at jobs@swiftstack.com. Send us your github profile, your LinkedIn account, a link to your website – whatever will best display the work that you’ve done. Tell us in a few lines of text why you’re interested in SwiftStack, and why we’ll be interested in you. We’ll be back in touch shortly to get the conversation started.

Fulltime in SoMa, San Francisco, CA. No remote.

We're building the equivalent of Cocoa/CocoaTouch/Android SDK for web applications, while also exploring and enabling new concepts in interface design (e.g. stuff like Clear todo app, Yahoo iOS Weather app). Everything we build is HTML5 and Javascript based.

If you are a software developer with a passion for building operating systems, high performance graphics, application frameworks and software engineering tools come join us, because we're working on something big getting attention from some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley (although we can't yet say who).

We're series A funded and have plenty of runway and we've got many options on the table that we're beginning to mine so we can extend that runway indefinitely, while we build out our core product(s). We're at 10 people and growing.

Experience with functional programming and especially functional reactive programming is a huge plus. Our main language right now is in JavaScript, because that is what runs in the browser. However, we're still very small and use of only JavaScript isn't set in stone.

Moonshadow Mobile is seeking an experienced JavaScript engineer to work in an informal atmosphere where employees are rewarded for their skills, knowledge, creativity and hard work, not their position or background. Our team is diverse, dedicated and brainy. If you enjoy working on challenging problems then Moonshadow may be the place for you.

We develop cutting-edge technology or "Big Data" visualization. Our technology retrieves and tallies geospatial data at extremely high speeds, typically 100 times faster than traditional databases.

We routinely bring up databases for customers with tens of millions of records. Our customers are typically large government organizations or companies that need to quickly understand or access large databases.

San Francisco (SoMA), CA

Full stack developer (Software Engineering)

Internship (Software Engineering)

J-1 OK


MyTime is Amazon for the services industry, helping people find and book services online. We're a small, but fast-growing company with funding from the likes of Mark Suster, Dave McClure and many others. We also have a base of over 1200 businesses, growing everyday. It's the perfect opportunity for anyone who wants to learn on the job and work at a fast-moving startup, and help us try to hack our way to success.

We're looking for a self-directed, generalist software engineer, with some experience developing web applications. All 4 engineers at MyTime are full-stack, and we expect you to be as well. You should be well-versed in HTML/CSS/JS, as well as server-side web application development. Our main web application is built on Ruby on Rails, so experience with Ruby and/or Rails is preferred, but if you are familiar with something like Django or Sinatra instead, you should still apply! You should also have some experience with an SQL database of any kind.

Email us at jobs@mytime.com Make sure you let us know about any projects you've done.

So, uh, I'm looking for an entry-level sysadmin/data-center monkey. You could call this an intern type position, but I don't care if you are in school or not.

Prgmr.com rents virtual private servers, dedicated servers, and datacenter space. Right now, we have 3 full-time folks, counting me, and two part-timers but I'm the only hardware person, and only two of us are local.

So, there are several catches. the first? I can't afford a full time person for at least two months. If you are willing to show up and work between then and now? $15/hr on a 1099. After those two months (and after I'm done paying for twice the co-lo I need) we can talk about going full time W2. (prgmr.com pays for Kaiser, if you are full-time)

Now, I do have an arrangement with a local refurbished server and network hardware dealer; I give him a good entry level person, he'll hire them full time with health insurance and stuff (for a little more than I'm paying; not a lot more, this is definitely still entry-level pay.) and he'll rent you back to me on a per-day basis at a discount (sort of as a referral bonus to me.) - so that's one way you can make this full-time before I stabilize prgmr.com. Note, he's based out of mountain view, and I'm in Santa Clara and all of this is very much hands-on work.

So yeah, what I need is someone I can teach how to handle my layer-1. I need my shit wired up, I need it wired up neatly (I can train you in cable lacing, but the neater you are, the better.) I need all my ports labeled inside my network gear (I can show you how to do this; Serial ain't rocket science.) and inside my PDUs.

This would be pretty good for someone studying up on their CCNA or something; I probably have obsolete hardware I could give you for your lab, too.

I need someone I can train up to set up my IPMI out of band access. Again, I can train, it's not hard. Again, experience using the command line helps a lot.

I also need someone who can handle racking/stacking servers, dragging servers to the car and back. You need to be able to safely lift 50lbs, (and more importantly, you need to ask for help when you /can't/ lift safely. pester the security guys; they will usually help, and if not, call me.) and you need transportation that can handle 50lb servers. (meh, if you have transportation, we can probably work something out with the hauling. I've got an old van I loan people.)

You need to be able to handle ssh, and ssh with public key authentication with minimal help from me.

So, the way I usually do this is that people email me, we go back and forth a few times (I won't hire you if you can't communicate via email... sorry, just one of my things.) then next time I need help I call you up. You show up and work. I pay you (check, but if you want we can drop by the bank and get it cashed for you same day... just when I pay cash the accountant gets mad at me) If you do well and I need help again, i call you back; At these rates, (and especially with this (lack of) stability) it's not fair to expect you to interview for free.

So yeah. Entry level. If you seem teachable, I don't care if you are currently unemployed.

I demand honesty, but not loyalty; by that, I mean I'm realistic. I'm not going to be angry if you move on to a better paying job quickly.

Especially at first, while we're just doing 'as needed' gigs? I'm understanding about your schedule; I don't demand you drop everything for me. (Once you go full time, we'll have to talk more about this. I do eventually want someone besides me to be hardware on-call, but I understand that needs to be worth your time, and this offer probably is probably not good enough to get you to let me drag your ass out of bed at 2am.)

It is refreshing to see posts like this that are willing to teach. Wish I could do it. Have a good one, and good luck filing the position.

well, it's a trade-off with the money, usually. That, and ISPs/hosting companies have traditionally been good places for entry-level folk. There is a strong culture or tradition of mentorship, or at least, of hiring likely looking folk and letting them run systems above their pay grade. (and to be clear, this will be a lot of that, too; I mean, I don't expect you to know this stuff off the bat, and I expect some questions, but I also expect a certain level of ability to, you know, look it up and figure it out.)

Locally? I hear that he.net also hires new people and trains; they even have a semi-formal training program. Some of it is public, too. Check out their IPv6 certification.[1] - but from what I hear, they have a lot more of that sort of thing internally. They took my last PFY; I likely would have been able to keep her if I had extended a full-time offer sooner, as they didn't offer great money, but like I said, I've got two more months of being financially very uncomfortable.


I really enjoy how this is written, and while I'm not your guy here, I'd love to have a job with someone who writes this job post.

Also, if there are any would-be customers looking for hosting, I can personally vouch that dealing with lsc via support is exactly as pleasant as this job posting is, even if you're really not supposed to need support. o.O

How would you feel about employing a minor?

a little bit afraid? I'd probably have to look at the legal implications, but it's not right out, if that is what you are asking. I mean, it might be completely out on the support side of things; I don't go after 'adult content' but I don't actively prohibit it, (other than through having 2008-level bandwidth quotas, which actually dissuades pretty strongly) and even if I did, it would still pop up occasionally.

but even so, on the hardware side of things, you won't see any of that (and I do go through pains to avoid looking at my customer's stuff anyhow.) and certainly, for what I'm paying... meh.

But yeah. I'd need to talk with a lawyer, and I'd probably want to talk with the parents and have them see what I'm doing first (as I assume that's where problems would come from if there were problems.)

I'd be interested in the position. Current CS major but wouldn't mind taking a plunge!

where are you located?

silicon valley; I'm in santa clara; my buddy is in mountain view.

Baxter Planning Systems - http://www.bybaxter.com/careers/ - Austin, TX - FULLTIME LOCAL

Have you ever wondered where parts originate to repair your air conditioner, the ATM at your bank, or the MRI machine in your local hospital? To reduce downtime, companies depend on a global supply chain of warehouses, delivery services, and manufacturers to supply the service parts to maintain the infrastructure of the modern world. Baxter Planning Systems is seeking outstanding Java Developers to optimize and automate every facet of this service parts supply chain.

Baxter Planning Systems offers a unique environment combining the flexibility of a startup with the stability of an established company. Our developers are involved in the entire product lifecycle, from problem description to design and execution. 20 years of established business with numerous satisfied customers provides ongoing revenue that isolates us from the anxiety of funding cycles or the constant search for the next big deal.

Working closely with on-staff domain experts, our developers have the opportunity to learn about the complexities of global supply chain management, and offer their own solutions to the challenges it presents. Challenges like planning optimal stocking levels for tens of thousands of parts distributed across thousands of locations worldwide, combined with complex interdependencies due to substitutability, regulatory issues, and the need to minimize both downtime and cost.

The ideal candidate for Baxter is a smart developer who gets things done by applying technology, especially open source, to meet our goals while maintaining a healthy work-life balance. The development and QA teams work closely with key stakeholders to formulate and manage development timelines that are both realistic and produce high-quality application features. You won't have to start from scratch either: we have a great infrastructure of automated unit/integration/regression/UI tests, automated builds, virtualized test environments, and a solid technology stack. But we recognize there's always room for improvement and welcome the experience and expertise you'd bring in improving our development practices, tools, and execution.

Regretfully at this time we are unable to accommodate 3rd party placement agencies, H-1B sponsorships, long-term telecommuting, or relocation. Please submit your resume and salary requirements to devjobs@bybaxter.com.

Site Reliability Engineer

Los Gatos, CA

Netflix -- we deliver movies on the Internet

We're looking for a few folks for our reliability org. This is not a reliability engineering position like Facebook or Google however. At Netflix our developers have the ability to push code whenever they feel it is the right time, and we don't want to get in their way. Instead we want to build tools that make it easier for them to follow best practices. We believe that a good process is one that is easier for the engineer to follow than work around, otherwise we haven't done our job.

The job is about 30% operational, where you'd be dealing with production issues and be the call leader for major outages, 30% evangelism, where you work with other teams to get them to adopt best practices and understand why they do what they do, and about 40% coding, where you'd be writing tools that help us maintain reliability, such as our alert routing system and automated production timeline tools, as well as our famous Simian Army.

If this sounds interesting, send your resume to talent@netflix.com and mention that you saw jedberg's post on HN.

Scribd (YC '06), San Francisco - H1B, FULL-TIME, and INTERN are all welcome

Scribd (social publishing & eBooks, top 100 website, 35 people) is hiring talented hackers and other technical people for a broad range of technologies.

We've hired FIVE full-time people and numerous interns from these "Who is Hiring" threads, including one just two months ago ... it really works!!

We're looking for people who want to work with:

WiFast (http://www.wifast.com) Mountain View, CA We're a well funded 15 month old startup just starting to poke our heads out of stealth mode. We're reimagining what internet access looks like in the modern world. We've proven and prototyped a lot of the necessary components. They work.

We are looking for true generalists.

Silly kernel, everything is going to be OK. You are;

* A Polyglot Programmer. Contribute all up and down the stack, from JavaScript and Python to C and shell scripting, from traditional MVC web development down to TCP/IP, DNS and iptables.

* Autodidactic. Learning is fun. Prepare to do a lot of it. We have way more components than team members and we intend to keep it that way.

* Autonomous. Be comfortable working with minimal oversight. We don’t have any PMs and we don’t plan to hire any for quite some time. Downside: you don’t get a spec. Upside: you don’t get a spec.

* Product-focused. Understand and appreciate the human-facing side of the business. You are comfortable thinking through what needs to be prioritized next and how that affects our customers.

* Attentive to Detail. You know when to git merge and when to git rebase, and it makes a difference (nobody likes a messy commit history). Your code feels obvious in retrospect. You take pride in your work.

* Test-Friendly. The best way to make sure we're creating value for our users is to make sure our changes don't break things.

Elbii | Mountain View, CA | full-time | 50% local / remote

Call us at (650) 735-2448 or email jobs@elbii.com

Elbii is a tiny, garage-based web consulting shop located in the heart of Mountain View. We're a friendly bunch who enjoy debating things such as ancient aliens, psychadelics, and Burning Man builds at least as much as scalable web architecture and privacy theory.

Looking for web engineers and designers of all disciplines with a preference toward those who wield master knowledge of Rails, Backbone.js, Node, and/or HTML5/CSS3.

We're a young, energetic team of analytically-minded folks obsessed with focused, creative productivity. We offer competitive pay and a workspace stipend to spend however you like. You'll get to pick which projects to work on and enjoy a flat hierarchical structure that promotes individualism over corporate homogeneity.

A few more details can be found on our jobs page: http://elbii.com/jobs.html

Rollbar (https://rollbar.com) - San Francisco (SOMA)

We're hiring a back-end engineer to be employee #2. You'll own the reliability, performance, and scalability of our systems, spending about half your time on infrastructure automation/maintenance and the other half building and improving back-end systems.

Our tech stack currently includes Python, Node.js, MySQL, Redis, Memcache, and Beanstalkd; plus Nagios for monitoring and Fabric for automation.

One key challenge we're having is ensuring uptime in the face of datacenter-level issues (we've had some) -- our customers rely on us to tell them when they're having problems, so we really need to be rock solid, at least on our API and data processing tiers. So far we're in 6 datacenters with DNS failover and a few other techniques, but there's much much more to do.

If this sounds interesting, email brian@rollbar.com and let's find a time to talk or meet up.

Amobee -- Silicon Valley -- H1B, Intern, Full-time

I'm the technical lead at Amobee on our PULSE 3D platform, looking to disrupt the way we consume and create mobile advertising. We're looking for developers on HTML5, WebGL, iOS, and Android to build the next generation of rich media as well as touch-based content creation tools from the ground up.

We believe that ads should actually be fun; as fast, interactive and personalized as the best games and apps. That's why we built the world's first 3D platform for display advertising. Our startup, AdJitsu, was acquired by Amobee almost a year ago. Our team continues to operate like an autonomous startup, with the added benefit of our parent company's resources.

Our PULSE 3D platform combines WebGL (or native OpenGL on iOS) with HTML5 to create a designer-friendly environment for building interactive experiences powered by programmable shaders. You can have a look at some of our ads here: http://amobee.com/3d.

As a startup within a startup (we're a team of six people including three engineers with a lot of autonomy), you'll have the chance to own and solve problems such as:

* Build the next generation of realtime rendering and user interaction on mobile * Rethink content creation tools, from the ground up, for multi-touch interfaces * Design immersive, sensor-driven user experiences for clients * Analyze billions of data points from user interaction

We touch everything from SIMD assembly and fragment shaders, to Hadoop and Pig, and almost everything in between. Objective C, C++, HTML 5, Javascript, WebGL, Python, git and more are tools we use every day.

Our client include brands like BMW, Samsung, Autodesk, and Nokia. Our team brings experience from Apple, Cooliris, Dreamworks, Microsoft, Namco Bandai, NVIDIA, Ubisoft, and more. We're backed by the likes of Accel, Sequoia, and Singapore Telecom.

If this whets your appetite, get in touch with me and let's talk!

Ruby Engineers, Mobile Engineer, interns

The last 50 years has seen the reinvention of almost every major industry except for one: Trucking. Intrans is here to change that by deploying the world's first mobile platform for on-demand freight shipping. Over $30 billion dollars a month is spent trucking freight around the US, without it, the country would grind to a halt overnight. In such a massive market, it's hard to believe that the entire industry today still runs on phones and fax machines, but until now, it has. This means hundreds of millions of dollars worth of freight capacity goes unfilled every month due to the old-school inefficiencies of the industry. We are changing that.

If you're ready to change the trucking industry, send your resume and GitHub profile to jobs@intrans.com. We're also looking for summer interns (engineering & sales).

This is a startup likely to be acquired sooner rather than later, if they do it right. There is a huge amount of legacy leftover in this industry. An uncle lives in Seattle doing COBOL on some very, very old systems related to shipping and trucking.

Buffer (http://bufferapp.com) - Anywhere in the world (we're a distributed team of 11 people across the US, UK, Hong Kong and Sydney).

I'd love for you to come join Buffer for the fun ride. We have over 650,000 users and are on a $1.3m+ annual revenue run rate. There are some super interesting challenges ahead, as we are looking to pass a million users in 2013. We are expecting even faster growth in the coming months through our mobile efforts.

We need help on 2 areas right now:

1. Android:

    - Android is our second highest source of signups for Buffer, only
      trailing behind Web which was our original platform.
    - our users love the app, which has a 4.3 rating on Google Play.
    - the app has 100k+ total downloads and 3k daily active users.
    - we work with Google Play, Kindle and Blackberry stores.
2. Full stack:

    - we get 1,500-2,000 signups per day on the web
    - we have 160,000 weekly active users for our Chrome extension
    - 4,500 API clients. Most popular: Feedly, IFTTT, Pocket, Instapaper
    - we ship to production multiple times a day
    - we have a data-driven process, with Einstein, our custom
      built a/b testing framework
    - ideally, experience in: PHP (Codeigniter)/Python, MongoDB,
      Backbone.js Javascript, CSS, HTML

We're a small team of driven hackers and happiness heroes (our support people). Just like you, we're excited and passionate about engineering challenges and have some interesting architecture and scaling problems we work on.

    - work with our metrics team to make smart changes
    - be friendly and comfortable talking directly to customers
      on issues and features

      support from us to move to where you want to be
    - have experience working with another startup before (would
      be awesome, it’s cool if not)
Some aspects of Buffer culture that makes us a little different:

    - we are totally transparent. We raised $450k, we currently
      have 650k users and generate $110k/mo. Ask me anything else!
    - within the company, all salaries and equity are open and we
      have a formula for the distribution.
    - we're all very focused on self improvement - we have daily
      standups where we discuss our current improvements. This
      could be waking up earlier, starting public speaking, blogging,
      exercise, learning a language, etc.

- Joel (Founder/CEO)

What does living cost have to do with the value a developer produces? It doesn't make much sense to me why a developer in a low cost of living area is worth less in terms of what features they develop for the company. I say this as someone who lives in a high cost of living area, so I'd be at the higher end of your scale and this is not a self serving comment.

If the best developer for the job happens to be in Manhattan or SF, s/he won't take a job paying Detroit or Wichita salaries.

Right, but if they don't produce more than the "normal Wichita salary" then you probably shouldn't hire them. If they produce enough value to be worth $150,000 per year let's say, then you pay them that. If they don't, you shouldn't pay them that much whether they live in SF or Detroit.

If they do produce enough to be worth $150,000, why pay them less just because they live in Wichita? Supply and demand, sure, but it just seems odd to me to explicitly say that you're paying less if someone lives outside of a major metropolitan area. I prefer to be (or think that I am) paid based on the value I produce (value pricing) rather than what it costs to keep a roof over my head (cost pricing). Whether or not this is the case also influences my understanding of how a company thinks about me.

A lower salary for a developer in low CoL area doesn't indicate that a company values that resource less than another dev in a higher CoL area. It just means that the company has to pay less in order to reward the developer in the low CoL as much as the employer rewards the high CoL dev. The equation looks like this:

salary - CoL/year = reward_dev

Sure, but I still find it interesting to make the following observation:

The CoL modification to the developer's salary has nothing to do with whether the company makes more or less revenue as a result of their work.

My guess is that as companies find good talent increasingly hard to find this problem will resolve itself as the remote workers outside major metropolitan areas get bidded to higher and higher salaries.

Honestly, I'd love to write a native BlackBerry 10 app for you guys, if I were given the chance on a part-time/consulting basis.

You must be one of the power users of CodeIgniter! I used to build everything with CI, but have switched to Laravel a while ago.

Anyway, with "help and support to move where you want to be", do you mean you can sponsor H-1B?

out of my curiosity, which person in the buffer team is located in hong kong?

Great question, the person on our team in Hong Kong is Michelle Sun. She is leading growth and that's her Twitter account: https://twitter.com/michellelsun

Hi seferphier :) Are you based in Hong Kong too?

What about profitability, do you mind sharing either gross or net margins ?

Profitability doesn't matter when you're growing. If they have 11 employees they are presumably spending every penny coming in to grow their business, which is what you would want. The payout will come later.

Anyway, it seems a great company.

Great question and cpncrunch is exactly correct. We are at 0 (more or less every month) and if there would be any profit we would hire people so we can invest it back into the company. Let me know if I can help answer anything else!

As long as the increasing spending doesn't outpace the increasing revenue.

Growing revenue is great but only if the red number gets smaller (or is staying in the same expected/manageable range).

IFTTT - http://ifttt.com/jobs - San Francisco, CA

IFTTT is looking for experienced engineers to help build the next generation of its platform. This is a unique opportunity to contribute to the core architecture of one of the web’s most innovative and exciting services. You’ll get to work on challenging technical problems alongside a small but driven group of developers, and play a key role in shaping both the product and team culture.

IFTTT’s mission is to help people to create connections between the services and devices they use every day. We’ve built a system that enables users to set up simple “if this, then that”-style recipes, which allow activity from one web service to trigger activity in another. The current system supports over 60 unique services and runs nearly a hundred million recipe-handling tasks per day, and we plan to dramatically expand on our flexibility and scalability. Under the hood, this translates to building a platform that can talk to and move data between virtually any API you can think of, all in realtime and at massive scale.

We’re hoping to find candidates who speak fluently about distributed architectures, databases, and ops, who enjoy rolling up their sleeves and writing code at all levels of the stack, and who have the confidence and depth of knowledge to take ownership of long-term projects. IFTTT currently runs on a polyglot mix of technologies, including EC2, Rails, Node.js, MySQL, Redis, Memcached, and Chef. Experience with these is a big plus, but we’re constantly evolving, and we value creative problem-solving and desire to learn over domain knowledge.

We recently secured a new round of funding, and we work hard to do right by our employees. New hires at IFTTT enjoy competitive salary and equity, full benefits, sane work schedules, and a flexible vacation policy. Much more than that, we offer interesting, deep projects and an amazing team experience. We operate on the philosophy that the best job perk is fantastic teammates, and to this end we’ve assembled a staff of intensely curious, well-rounded, talented people who happen to be great engineers. We’re hoping you can be the next one.

Shopify - Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal


Shopify is looking to grow the team responsible for building the future of Shopify. We’re in search of back-end developers with a passion for solving hard problems with performant code. If you are interested in creating great products, building new features and improving the existing Shopify features, then please apply!

Developing Shopify

Shopify is the longest continuously developed Rails app on the planet and we care a great deal about code quality. Shopify, in contrast to most other rails shops, always runs on the latest rails version. Many core rails features have been developed within Shopify and have later been added to the Rails framework. We often go back and improve core parts of the Shopify codebase to make it better or more lean. We can do this because we have a positively massive unit test coverage which will immediately sound the alarm when something goes wrong.

We ship on quality instead of on time. When a feature is ready we deploy it immediately to everyone or use an internal system to roll it out to a certain percentage of customers. Various teams deploy new code many times throughout the day.

Shopify's production scale is massive. We host tens of thousands of online stores and regularly see hundreds of millions of requests a day. When you push out new code tons of people will see what you made within seconds. Operating on this level is hard but incredibly rewarding.


* Write back-end code in Ruby and Go.

* Work with a world class design and product team.

* Providing beautiful and fast code that improves the code-base of our products in meaningful ways.

* Use TDD to write rock-solid code, utilizing our huge test suite to make changes with confidence.

* Rapidly fix bugs or take your time to solve hard problems well.

* Deploy code to hundreds of servers and tens of thousands of customers in your first week.

* Never stop learning. Shopify is an environment of constant personal growth.

Qualifications and Desired Skills:

* Know Rails or be ready to learn it quickly.

* Proficiency with UNIX commands.

* Knowledge of relational databases and SQL, we use MySQL.

* Strong commitment to quality.

* Experience building and scaling user-focused web application.

* Being awesome and having a love for Shopify - Major Plus!

What does Shopify use Go for? Are you running Go in production?

Skimming our github:

* Service for taking snapshots of websites (in production)

* noeqd (not our code, but it is in production, and written in Go)

* Webhook delivery service (production later this month)

* Stats server for storefront statistics (in development)

* Some reporting-related service I don't know much about (in development)

* bucket-to-bucket sync tool for S3 (command-line tool)

* Image resizing service (likely to replace our existing service written in ruby next time it bottlenecks)

We don't currently have a ton of deployed Go infrastructure, but a lot of new development is happening in Go. We've hit a point in our growth where it makes sense to start thinking about fast services rather than throwing more job servers at the problem, so a few things are being extracted to new Go services here and there. We intend to continue along this line, using Go where we'd like more performance (concurrency) than we can trivially get out of ruby, or if it feels like it fits the problem domain.

Felix Founder

5 Reasons to move to Berlin (thanks Node.js - great summary) 1. Lowest livings costs with highest standard of living. Stay in gorgeous, perfectly renovated apartments in pre-WWII residential buildings with high ceilings, right in the middle of the center and pay a fraction of costs of any other capital (even cheaper than any Eastern European capital). No need for a car—Berlin has one of the densest subway nets and wide streets make biking fun + we have Car2Go and Drive-Now (these are world's best smartphone-supported car sharing systems with brand new cars at every corner, cheaper than owning a car or riding a cab). In addition, Germany has an amazing social health care system including health, unemployment and pension (when working as an employee). 2. A vibrant and fast growing ecosystem of smart people. A vast number of new software talents, founders, software companies and VCs are moving to Berlin, every day (Twitter, Google, Soundcloud, Early Bird, Mozilla and many more). 3. People here are open-minded, outgoing, mix well and international—no need to learn German, everyone speaks English! Making new friends is a matter of days. Visit tons of networking and startup events, every week. 4. Easy work permissions—Europeans do not need any and can work from day one. 5. Berlin's night life is unmatched, huge and changing every day (plus ridiculously cheap). Berlin has got some of the most dazzling, naughty, and original clubs on the face of the Earth. Berlin is calling and getting the new tech hub of Europe. If you are passionate about building great software, we’d love to talk with you. If you don't live in Berlin yet, we could help to fix that.

As our first hire and only front-end specialist, you'll drive the function and feel of our UI, creating entirely new ways of interacting with data.

And Statwing's deep interaction and data exploration needs to feel like it's happening locally even when it's not.

The ideal candidate:

. Excited about taking responsibility and ownership over big pieces of the product

. Comfortable with efficiently handling and processing relatively large amounts of data.

New York, NY - Fulltime

Hiring: FE Engineer & Head of Marketing/Biz-dev

iknow.io is a data-driven knowledge sharing community for curious people.

We take raw data about Movies, Music, Sports, Economics, Politics and more and make it possible for regular people to analyze and extract useful information from it. We also enable them to browse, share and discuss the fascinating insights they discover with one another.

While there are mountains of raw data out there, only scientists and programmers can currently make any real use of it. Our mission is to make that data accessible and useful to everyone.

Our team has extensive experience working with large, complex data problems and in building and nurturing online communities.

We are currently a team of 4 people, and are looking to add 2 more talented individuals to the mix immediately.

1) FE Engineer: You have a great design sense and some serious engineering skills. You think the famous quote, "there are only two hard things in computer science, cache invalidation and naming things" is spot on. Whenever you're browsing the web, you're constantly noticing things that could be tweaked and improved. You're a pragmatist who's ok with ignoring IE6 users. You've built complex, popular web-based applications before. You want to join an early stage startup where you can quickly prove yourself and become the FE engineering lead.

Our FE Stack includes python (django), javascript (jquery, backbone), html and css. Deep familiarity with all of these is a big plus, but not necessarily required. Experience with mobile app development is also a plus.

2) Head of Marketing & Business Development: You're a natural born deal maker. When you throw a party, too many people show up. You know how to build, execute and analyze the effectiveness of a marketing campaign. Bloggers and reporters know you, and love you. You believe product design and marketing are one and the same. You're ready to join an extremely talented product & engineering team and show them that everything they thought they knew about how to really promote and grow a new site from the ground-up is wrong.

If you fit the bill for either of these positions, and you think what we're working on sounds intriguing, then we'd love to hear from you at jobs@iknow.io. Thanks!

Palo Alto, CA - Infer, Inc.

We are Infer. We use a wide array of data science techniques -- machine learning, information retrieval, entity reconciliation, you name it -- to help companies do more with their customers.

We want to bring this type of data intelligence into the enterprise space. Companies like Google and Facebook are developing very fancy algorithms and pushing the state of the art to bring amazing insights into... which cat video you should click on next? Incredible smarts are being applied for seemingly trivial things in the consumer space, while in the enterprise space, decision-making is still mostly gut-driven, at most supplemented by a few Excel charts. This shouldn't be. Enterprise companies, who are solving important problems and paying salaries, whose survival depends on allocating their limited resources optimally, need to be brought forth to the cutting edge. They need to leverage their data better. They need to make their decisions smarter.

This is what we do. We identify problems that are common across companies and are ripe for more intelligence, and we build end-to-end solutions that alleviate those pain points and create value. Our growing list of paying customers include Box, Yammer, Zendesk, Jive, Tableau and Rackspace, and we're just getting started.

And we're excited to have recently raised $10 million in Series A funding, led by Redpoint Ventures, with participation from Andreessen Horowitz, Social+Capital Partnership, Sutter Hill Ventures, Nexus Venture Partners, and many esteemed angel investors:


We're building an amazing team with folks from MIT, Berkeley, Stanford, Google Research, Microsoft Research, IBM Research, Yahoo Research and Palantir, so if you're an engineer eager to work on a product that will provide real value and alleviate some real pain points for its users, and if you're hungry to help us grow and shape our young startup, please check out https://www.infer.com/careers.html and drop us a note!

Currently, our Reston platform alone handles 4 billion requests a day.

We have grown our userbase steadily, and our users are extremely loyal. We are profitable, and will continue to be so indefinitely in an industry that will be around essentially forever.

My name is Dustin and I am an engineer on the Labs team. I look forward to hearing from you!


Ready to answer some algorithm questions that your interviewer had to look up the answer to before you arrived? Does years of experience determine who the best engineers are? How about a whiteboarding session with people peppering you with questions - is that how you normally work?

We’re sorry that we don’t just do things because that’s how others do it. We may only be a simple startup, but we have this crazy idea that your past work, production code and open source contributions are the best indicators of your ability. If these are high quality, let’s talk.

This is who we are:

A small group (under 10) that has built two consumer facing products. We’re technology agnostic and believe the best developers can teach themselves what they need to learn. There are no politics, no prima donnas and we just like getting things done.

https://www.ediviso.com is a consultation marketplace for experts to give advice via live video chat.

https://www.catincan.com is a crowdfunding platform for open source projects.

This is what we need:

Software Engineer that solves problems. You’re someone that figures things out, cares about code quality and understands technical debt. You like learning new languages and have your own method that’s worked for you time and again to get spun up on something quickly. Ideally you’ll also be able to understand the big picture and business models of products. We don’t just need another engineer, we need another team member.

If you know any of these we'll take it as a good sign but they're not required: Scala, Haskell, Prolog, Lisp, Eiffel, Erlang, Go, Meteor, Coffeescript, Ember.js, AngularJS.

Onespacemedia - Cambridge, UK. http://www.onespacemedia.com/


Junior/middle-weight web developer

Are you an internet-obsessed design-savvy coder? Interested in being part of a friendly, dynamic team in a central Cambridge studio? We want to talk to front or back end developers who are creative, organised and love all things web. Ideally you'll have some or all of the following skills:

Knowledge of writing standards-compliant, high-performing HTML5 and CSS web pages. Experience of working with popular web libraries. We use Django and jQuery, but you can learn these on the job. Good knowledge of at least one programming language. We work primarily in Python and Javascript, but are happy for you to learn these on the job too. An understanding of database programming and design. Familiarity with *nix based operating systems. Awareness of popular web APIs, such as Google Maps, Twitter and Facebook. More important than relevant experience is the drive to learn and expand your skill set. If you've got a commitment to excellence and can demonstrate an aptitude for programming then we want to hear from you. In return you'll receive a competitive salary, full training and your own top of the range laptop (we work predominantly on Macs but we can let the odd Windows machine slip through the net!).

What you can expect to work on

Expect to work on a wide range of challenging projects. We don't have a cookie cutter approach to the web and push the design and technical envelope on all our work. Recent projects have included: an application that manages, filters and analyses radio spectrum data from a series of nationally-located nodes; a responsive website for a high-end safari and Africa travel company; a large website and online admin system to manage the ever-changing attractions and events for an interactive science centre; and a website/application that tracks, maps and graphs the progress of University spin-out companies. Most of our projects are responsive and we're as committed to the front-end user experience as we are to what's happening under the hood.

How we work

As a team we listen, learn, plan, design, build, test and deliver together. Whilst different people are responsible for their own part of a project, we all understand the importance of the chain and support each other to get things done. You'll be expected to manage your own workload and you won't ever have a project manager breathing down your neck. Our process is front-loaded with in-depth research and discovery rounds in which both developers and designers participate. This keeps scope creep to a minimum and deadlines and budgets realistic. We don't subscribe to unnecessary bureacracy and keep things streamlined and agile. You'll get to talk to clients too - we all share the successes and the challenges of a project together.


The web is constantly evolving so we expect you to as well. Experimentation and learning new skills is part of the fabric at Onespacemedia. Need some books or course materials? No problem. Want to try out some new techniques on a test project? No problem. Something you want to tell the world about a technology or trend? Blog about it on the website. We expect our team members to be passionate and knowledgeable about their field of expertise.


Working at Onespacemedia is fun. We do serious work for serious clients but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy it. Expect plenty of laughter, music, company lunches, trips to the pub and impromptu ping pong battles. Just ten minutes walk from the station and ten minutes walk from the centre of Cambridge, the office is located just of Mill Road, the cultural heart of Cambridge (and probably the closest thing you can get to a London street outside of the capital). We're surrounded by green spaces, pubs, shops and cafés (including the legendary Hot Numbers). We've even got parking spaces. We operate a flexitime scheme too so those of you who are commuting from out of town don't have to spend four hours a day stuck in a traffic jam to and from work.

How to apply

Please send CV, covering note and links to any websites or applications you have created, or been involved with, to jobs@onespacemedia.com. We are open to enquiries from individuals seeking part-time and full-time work.

Bunseki Software Authority is hiring for a variety of technology specific expert witnesses e.g. Bitcoin, MapReduce, Software Licensing, Security, etc...

MarkITx is a B2B exchange for buying and selling IT hardware (anything that goes into a datacenter). We are disrupting the $350B secondary IT market by bringing simplicity and transparency to a process that is currently painful, ugly and untrustworthy. We are a well funded startup, working out of 1871. We are a very talented, deeply experienced and tight-knit team. We have some of the best backers and advisors in Chicago. We’ve proven the model, with over $60MM in orders and over $150k per month in transactions. We’re just getting started, and we need your help to scale.

Our culture is driven by a simple constraint: every colleague we add should make the rest of the team happier and better at their own jobs. That means talent density grows as we grow. It means we have zero tolerance for ego-driven BS. It means we’re in awe of what our colleagues are capable of. It means we have complete autonomy to identify and solve the problems in our domain. It means we care more about the win than we do about who did what to get us there.

Email me at ben@markitx.com if you're interested and tell me about what you've built.

Rentify - London, UK, Software Engineer (ruby on rails)

Listen, I don't want to bore you. You should know a few things about us before we begin.

1. We're a small tight-knit team that wants to change how rentals are done. The rental industry is old, antiquated, and ready for a push. We think we have the right recipe, and so does Balderton Capital, who invested in us for our Series A.

2. We don't do deadlines, or assign your day to day work to you, or tell you how to get it done, or make your decisions. You're smart, professional. You already know how to build software so you don't need us to tell you. Of course, we don't mind helping if you get stuck. Read more about it here: http://engineering.rentify.com/post/47385480838/in-engineers...

3. We're all hungry for success.

Okay, now for the normal stuff:

## Responsibilities:

- Lead by example - by writing good code, talking about good code, and then drinking beers with the team about all the good code that was written

- Design and development of new product features and enhancements

- Communicate with non-engineers to define requirements and deliverables

- Know what technologies are out there in case you need to use them

- Periodically teach your co-workers all the great stuff you learned via tech talks, brown bags, blogs, or open source

## Requirements:

- You ideally have Ruby on Rails experience. (We'll still talk to you if you've done something with Django or node.js)

- You want to work in a startup (a.k.a. a place that works hard and plays hard)

- You feel comforted when you write a good unit test

- You must have a Bachelor's knowledge level of computer science via education or experience

- You know when to use Postgres/Mysql vs Mongodb/Redis

- You understand the full stack (servers, RoR, javascript/css/html)

- You have to be able to travel to central London every day

## Perks:

- Unlimited vacation

- Equity in Rentify

- Food and drinks available in the office 24/7

- Feel free to crush your co-workers on our N64 and pool table. We're probably going to build a nap room too because I need a snooze once in a while.

- We provide whatever tools you need to succeed like the latest hardware and educational material

- Be a part of a collaborative team that sits in an open environment (read: no politics) who previously worked at companies like Eventbrite, Google, and Apple

To apply, send a CV + github over to jobs@rentify.com

Precision Nutrition - Toronto, ON, Canada - REMOTE

At Precision Nutrition, we're committed to the Fitness 2.0 vision: technology that makes lifelong change easier than ever before. We're looking for a new teammate to help us make it happen.

Specifically, we're looking for a Front-end design engineer. Someone with:

* both design and coding chops

* incredibly strong skills in HTML5, CSS and the related design tools (Creative Suite, etc.)

* some experience with JQuery and any of the MVC Javascript frameworks (optional, but a big plus. We're using Ember.js on our current project)

* the ability to turn UI sketches and mockups into beautiful, working HTML / CSS / JS prototypes

* the ability to turn those prototypes into clean, elegant, production-ready code

* a passion for learning, a penchant for listening, and a good attitude to tie it all together

We're going to be working primarily on responsive and mobile-specific web projects and apps, so if you're interested, send us something that shows us what you can do. If you have a GitHub profile, a portfolio, or even something you've cooked up for fun just to demo your skills, we'd love to see it. Come build the future of fitness with us.

At Precision Nutrition we:

* Pay in the top 10% in the world for each position.

* Offer 4 weeks paid vacation and a health benefit stipend.

* $10,000 annual expense budget for whatever hardware, software, training and conferences you might wish for.

* Encourage and enthusiastically support remote work.

Join us so you can:

* Work from anywhere. If you’re in Toronto, our hometown, great! If not, no worries. Many people on our team work exclusively from home, from all over the world. We prefer people to be on Eastern time (or close to it), because it makes virtual meetings easier. But we'll consider superb applications from anyone, anywhere.

* Work in the fitness and nutrition industry. 
We love exercise, we love nutrition, and we love sport. That’s why we started this company. If you do too, you’ll appreciate how rare it is to do a job you really love. For active, fit people, Precision Nutrition is that opportunity.

* Work with fun, bright, and talented people. We’re a small company, and we’re picky about who we work with, because to us, this isn’t just a job – it’s our life. Over time, and with careful selection, we’ve put together a group of extremely talented, flexible, and positive people who truly love what they do, and who appreciate the strengths their teammates bring. It's an incredibly creative environment.

Interested? Send an application to applications@precisionnutrition.com, and include a cover letter, resume / LinkedIn profile, GitHub profile, portfolio -- whatever will show us what you can do.

Many positions! Help us continue to push watching both pro and personal video gaming main stream. We've hit on a strong product market fit and we're growing hand over fist right now. As such we have need for:

- backend engineers[1]

- product engineers[2]

We're analytical about the work that we do and you should be too. You should also care about getting things done right, and be pragmatic about when to choose speed over quality, if you opt for the former you're the type of engineer that makes a note that you shorted on quality and you'll come back and fix that up.

We keep small engineering teams (usually no more than 10 people per team), this permits us to own what we work on. It is one of the best things about working here in my experience!

The low down on the positions:

[1] - Backend Engineers

With 30m MAU (last published number... it is bigger now!) our backend engineers work to keep our service humming along with five nines of uptime. Your work would include not only improving core pieces of infrastructure but also envisaging new pieces that we do not have yet that will help take us to the next level. Some examples of things that have been done recently:

- migration to ruby 1.9

- built out a new IRC chat server which handles ~1000 qps. Best thing here is we slotted this in and no one noticed (except that chat was more stable, etc).

- Created a brand new API to access our data, this is used by Activision (Call of Duty: Black Ops II), EA (EA origin) and PlanetSide II, Smite, amongst a wide array of other game devs.

- Replaced a core piece of infrastructure used to let us know what streams are live, and what content they have on them. Again, this has been done without anyone noticing - its main win was taking us from needing 8 app servers to being able to handle all the load on one, but we run a couple of resilience.. naturally

We've a bunch of other coolness in the pipeline.

[2] - Product Engineers

One of the reasons we're growing so fast is that we're starting to churn out high quality features and general product improvements. There is still so far to go, the twitch you see now is as a result of dedicating much of our engineering work to scaling, in that time we've hired some kick ass product engineers and they're starting to push us forwards. Some things we've worked on recently:

- migrating site over to emberjs

- "Turbo" - ad free watching on all channels

- key product improvements: vod watching, vod creation

- new flash player - faster, less resource intensive, easier to build new features on

- payment provider integrations - aiming to make it as easy to pay in various geos as is possible.

We've a bunch of other coolness in the pipeline! (yes, there is an echo in here...).

Feel free to hit me up if you're interested / have questions / want a tshirt, etc, I head up our engineering team: ossareh at twitch.tv


Fulltime, Palo Alto - funded Series A


email: paul at refresh.io

Title: "Rather Impressive Java Developer"

Our current dev team is pretty awesome and we're looking to add to it. Currently we have a few PhD's, few ex-googler's, some tech book authors, couple of ex-linkedin, ex-microsofties, and stanfords, and a bunch of startup vets like Trulia and dealer.com. Heck we even have the guy who wrote the Java testing framework TestNG ( http://www.testng.org ) and the guy who wrote Mailinator ( http://mailinator.blogspot.com ). And we're only up to 7 people. But we want an 8th and maybe a 9th.

Job Description: Someone we want to work with. Someone who will make us smarter and better and, in return, someone we can make smarter and better too. Someone who will help us make our company and its products great.

Our technology includes: Java. Thousands of threads (Mailinator guy keeps adding more, TestNG guy keeps removing them). Tons of data, tremendous data analysis, fuzzy logic, machine learning, natural language processing. We use Mongo and we're having no problems with it - because we're careful. We treat every superfluous database access and every unnecessary network call like its a small insult to our users. And gosh darn it, we love our users.

Simply, we are building a product that fetches and analyzes massive amounts of data to improve our user's lives (see the website for a more specific description, or better yet, email me)

Job Requirements: You know Java (or at least you're willing to learn it) - but hands-down you know some computer language cold. You know it well enough to hate parts of it but yet probably understand why they're there. You get why algorithms are important and know when to implement them and sometimes, when its better to just do it the easy way. You understand that startups experiment a lot - and consequently discover amazing things occasionally, but throw away code far more often.

The static credentials on your resume are great but honestly, its the dynamic stuff we're more interested in.

You've done stuff. You're proud of the stuff you've done. You can show us - heck, you can't wait to show us. It might be an iphone app, or an open source project, or a thread-safe cache-invalidation scheme, or a javascript game, or maybe you launched a startup. Either which way - you built something - start to finish. You can deliver.

The interview:

We love solving problems and every interview question we ask is based on something we've actually had to code. So we sometimes get rather excited to find a smart person willing to solve a problem a new way with us on a whiteboard. You should think this way too - you don't rate interviews as being easy or hard - you rate them as being boring or fun. And we definitely shoot for fun. Right answers aren't the point - finding a good attack vector on the problem is.

Simply Studio / 17 Hats (http://simplystudio.com/) - IRVINE, CA / REMOTE (US/CANADA preferred)

We're looking for a senior web developer to join our team. We're building a fantastic one-stop SAAS app for one person businesses. It handles everything from invoicing, to contact management, to online contracts, to accounting and more. Over the past year we've built the initial version of the app for the photographers. It's been very successful and we're ready to move on to other industries.

This is where you come in! As we grow, we need somebody who can take care of building new front end functionality, as well as fix the occassional bug in our current feature set. The front end of the app is a single page app, using Sammy.js and Knockout.js. We built our own MVC framework that kicks ass, and is very easy to use.

We're looking for the person who loves coding challenges, and can figure out the best solution in a reasonable matter of time. A person who will work with our UX designer (who creates the necessary HTML and CSS) to implement the design. A person who understands that real businesses use our software on a daily basis and the importance of writing code that does what we expect.

You'll be joining a small but very experienced development and design team. We've been making scalable SAAS applications for over 15 years with over 10,000 clients. Since 2010, we've been using AWS for basically everything.

Skills & Requirements

Must haves:

- Great understanding of writing re-useable Javascript

- Understand JSON structures

- Experience with 'single page' web application

- Have written a jQuery plugin

- Know your way around HTML and CSS

- Tons of Ajax experience


- Server side experience with MySQL

- Perl experience

- Knockout.js experience

- Amazon AWS experience

An interest in (small) business would be another plus.

About Simply Studio / 17Hats

We're self-financed and profitable. The position is available now, and it is possible to tele-commute. Currently our team is location all over the country and Canada. If you live in the LA area, you would still work from home (or your favorite coffee shop) but we'd meet up once a week or so to go over the latest developments.

There's always a lot going on, which means every day is different. There are always new challenges. With our current user base, it is very rewarding when you see the responses come in after you release a new feature or fix an existing issue.

If you love front end app development, we're the place for you!

Salary range, depending on experience, is between $80,000 and $120,000 (US Dollars).

Please drop us an email at jobs@simplystudio.com

Why are there so few design jobs here?

We are looking for a core-team member for our startup in Bangalore, India. We offer good chunk of equity for the right person.


Gaglers (http://gaglers.com) is a scalable real-time chat platform. Currently, we offer group chat for communities and live chat with unlimited operators.

Our high-level technical challenges are,

    scaling a real-time platform to millions of concurrent users.
    measure all interactions to make data driven decisions
This is a full-time position based in Bangalore, India.

Typical Day at the Job

Here is how a typical day will look like. You start by looking the status of the production dashboard and bugs. With a quick scan you find that that the message counts are not getting updated in the dashboard after the code push last night. You jump on it right way and send a short code-review out, after testing it on your staging setup.

With that out of the way, you get back to the feature that you have been working on. You know exactly why you are building this feature and what impact it will have on the customers. The feature was specced out last week in some intense design discussions. You finished a quick prototype yesterday. You throw it out today and start the code and unit testing for the initial release. The plan is to deploy a basic version this week sometime, gather feedback over a few days and then fine-tune it based on what the customers say.

Just after lunch, while you code, you come across a bug in the queuing sub-system. You decide that it would be simple for you to fix it as well and so you do. While you fixed the bug, you thought about how you can make the queuing system much more scalable. You write a quick note to yourself to talk about it later.

By the end of the day you'll have a good chunk of the new feature implemented. You'll send that queuing system bug fix for code-review tomorrow morning and continue your work of the new feature. How the role will develop

Initially, the tasks you take on will be smaller and fairly well defined. Longer term, the requirements you get will be more general, and you’ll interpret them to produce great solutions. You’ll also generate tasks on your own initiative as you identify opportunities.

As we grow, we may need to take on more developers. You’ll have the opportunity to be responsible for these folks if you want.

Technical Qualifications

You will be,

    fluent in Django and Python and comfortable using Git
    be happy with HTML and Javascript
    have designed and written applications using Django
    comfortable managing a group of remote linux servers.
You'll have the opportunity to work on all areas of our stack. Our technology stack includes,

    Django, Python, Erlang
    Redis, MySQL
    RabbitMQ, Celery
    Bootstrap, JQuery, Javascript
We are looking for someone who sees their role as bigger than just programming. You'll also get to know our business. You'll also look for opportunities to make things cooler for our customers.

Amsterdam, Netherlands. Work permit and relocation assistance provided.

Hiring for two different companies, both of whom will pay your relocation.

Company 1:

Looking for UX designers, front-end and back-end developers. UX designer: use Photoshop, Gimp, or whatever makes your socks roll up and down and you know how to make Web and/or mobile applications work for customers. Knowledge of HTML, JavaScript and CSS also needed.

Front-end developer: you can make Web sites do exactly what you want them to do, regardless of the browser or operating system the web site is running on. Knowledge of HTML, JavaScript and CSS required.

Back-end developers: you know what it takes to power the back-end of large web sites. You understand scalability issues and can explain the difference between an inner and outer join. You know what O(log N) is and why it's important. Your programming language history isn't important because you're good enough to learn a new language if needed.

All positions: not looking for rock stars. Looking for competent technical talent who are willing to move to Europe (unless you're already here). We have many expats working here and we'll even help pay for Dutch lessons, if you want them.

We also like people who understand business because you'll be expected to make many of your own decisions without having to ask permission from management for every little thing that you do. You will have the power to get stuff done, work with a great bunch of people and be able to spend your five weeks of vacation time cruising across Europe and discovering why Amsterdam is such a beautiful city.

Company 2:

Unlike Company 1, Company 2 is looking for rock stars to bring to Amsterdam. They want front-end devs and system engineers. They want you to have at least a bachelor's degree in IT or a related field and you have to have a fairly impressive resume/CV (in terms of work, open source or educational background (preferably all three)) to even get an interview. In return, they offer a very agile environment, hard tasks, in a stable, long-term company. Large company, but each team gets a room with only a few people (no open-plan distractions). Management gets out of your way and meetings are discouraged. There's a heavy focus on constant performance optimization of systems because no one like a slow system. Multiple programming languages are used with the language being chosen to fit the problem and not the other way around.

Front-end devs: mostly PHP with Smarty and Propel, though other languages, such as Java, and Python are used. You will be working on desktop, tablet and mobile applications and know Javascript and CSS fluently. This means more than just jQuery! Mobile experience is helpful, as it UX work.

System Engineers: you will be responsible for thousands of Linux servers across several data centers. Company 2 serves a quarter of a billion page views a day and heavy use of the latest open-source technologies is encouraged in their quest for better and better performance. Nginx, Puppet, stackless Python and MySQL are just a few of the technologies involved. The engineers are heavily involved in open source and are encouraged to give back to the community. You have deep experience in Linux, preferably multiple distributions, you know bash and at least one scripting language. You have strong experience with a variety of open source monitoring and scalability technologies.

To apply for any of these, send an email to jobs at allaroundtheworld.fr and refer to this post.

Just a tip, you'd probably get more traction if you mentioned names of the companies and what they actually do.

You're right, but there's a catch-22: my wife and I are starting a company focusing on helping people move to other countries. For recruiting, we currently only work with companies who sponsor work permits and help with relocation. Thus, I act as a recruiter for those companies and if I mention their names or get too specific about what they do, candidates can apply directly. That not only removes any commission we make referring them, it also kills any chance we have to help the candidate prepare for the interviews.

I am very passionate about helping people become expats (my wife and I have both lived in multiple countries) and I'm just hoping I can find a way to turn my passion into a business.

New York / London - Bloomberg

http://jobs.bloomberg.com/ http://www.bloomberg.com/ux

There are many jobs open at Bloomberg, but I'm particularly looking for intelligent software engineers and UX professionals to work under the CTO and Infrastructure team in R&D. We have roughly 4,000 R&D employees, so work is very diverse across the company. Teams are roughly 4-8 people at the lowest level and group up into larger organizations organized by product type (equities, fixed income, etc.). I happen to work on infrastructure for the Professional service (aka Terminal). Our team has very little interaction with anything finance related and most of our work is related to evolving the entire platform forward and making forward-looking changes. Back in 2005, we converted all of our higher-level "app" development to server-side JS (custom, Spidermonkey based) and now run probably the largest server-side JS stack in the world (~20MM LOC). We migrated a lot of our GUI toolkit to be scripted as well (LUA this time) to allow us to more easily evolve it. And now we're evolving it, embedding WebKit and pushing bugfixes and feature enhancements to do what we need (our fork is on GH). We're helping define and implement CSS3 Grid spec and help implement ES6 generators among other things. We built and run a third-party app store within the Terminal. Over the past decade we've rebuilt the C++ foundation of the company from the ground up, starting with our own STL implementation using the Lakos allocator model (Lakos and a few other C++ committee members work here). We have a huge wealth of awesome C++ libraries that we started open-sourcing and will continue to add more layers as time goes by.

All of what I mentioned above is stuff done by the infrastructure team, and we're a tiny percentage of the overall R&D population. Other teams get to do fun stuff as well. The mortgage team ported long-running ABS OAS calculations from Linux farms to GPU clusters and wrote a Python based cash flow engine from the ground up, potentially helping define the SEC's Python-files-must-be-included rules.

We run a worldwide network with somewhere around 35,000 circuits in 180+ countries. We ingest anywhere from 45-60 billion "ticks" daily aggregate from feeds in all of these countries. We normalize, scrub, and then re-distribute all this data to customers in all of those countries in an efficient manner. The Terminal provides analytic and visualization tools to work with market data, as well as the same tools to work with news and alerts. On the news side, we ingest over 80,000 news feeds (e.g. WSJ would be one "feed") from around the world and do the same kind of processing, applying ML for sentiment and topic classification, etc. We also design our own hardware in-house -- everything from keyboards and monitors, to custom ASICs for authentication/subscription tokens and PCIe hardware security modules for our certificate infrastructure. The web side (bloomberg.com, businessweek.com, BGOV, BLAW, Black, etc) uses mostly Rails stacks and everything you would expect to find in a web shop.

Oh, and we have a TV station, radio station, etc. They innovate too. Bloomberg TV is the first non-OTA channel to be distributed via Aereo, for instance :)

We could use a motto like "We do a lot of stuff."

Contact me if you want to discuss at andrew@ishiboo.com. If you want to chat in person, we are a sustaining sponsor of NYTM and are at all the meetups. and we'll have a few people at JSConf in May.

wikiHow (http://www.wikihow.com/wikiHow:Jobs) - Palo Alto

We're "Wikipedia for how-to". We have over 40 million monthly users, but only 5 engineers. That's 8 million users per engineer!

==Our vision== Imagine a world where anyone can easily learn how to do anything. A world where access to comprehensive step-by-step instructions in multiple languages enables billions of people to improve their lives, in both ordinary and extraordinary ways. That’s the world we want to create.

==Where== wikiHow is located in a homey office in downtown Palo Alto, California, three blocks from the Palo Alto Caltrain Station. We also have satellite offices in Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington.

==Why we’re different== * We take wikiHow's educational mission seriously. We put our mission above short-term business goals. * We pay well. You get the joys of a nonprofit mission with a competitive for-profit salary and benefits package. * We have a huge number of users, but a very small team. Your work will make an immediate, noticeable impact on millions of people. * We all work from home one day a week. * We don't think working long startup hours is productive or healthy. We work hard and productively, then go enjoy rich lives outside of work. * Our small, cohesive team is gender balanced: 50% female, 50% male. * We’re often wrong (and that’s OK). Making mistakes shows that we are innovating. We love to innovate. * We like walking. We even have a few treadmill desks. * We love coming to work every day. Working with intelligent people to accomplish something globally ambitious is intrinsically satisfying. * We like to share. We develop open source software and Creative Commons licensed content. * With over 40 million readers a month, wikiHow is one of the top 200 sites on the web. Even your mom will use and love our product. * We are profitable and growing. * We are self-funded. We refuse VC money on a regular basis. Investors don’t make our decisions, we do. * We are better in person than on TV: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYdfGsYyALI * We're delightfully quirky (but you probably figured that out already).

=== A warning === Before you book an appointment with us, you should understand that wikiHow is not hoping to be acquired or looking for a quick financial exit. Our company is already profitable, financially stable (aka your job isn’t going away at someone’s whim), and we all love working here, so we aren’t in a rush to sell it to some big company. In fact, we think we are doing a pretty good job running it, and selling it might mean the end to a product that we all love working on. The team here shares a passion for helping the millions of people we reach everyday. It is an amazing feeling to work on such a popular and impactful product! That amazing feeling makes us smile when we wake up every day and think about going to work. If all of this sounds appealing to you, we encourage you to apply... If this is a bummer, then that’s okay too, we probably aren’t the best fit for you right now...and that’s totally fine!

===Engineering at wikiHow=== We have a five-person engineering team and over 40 million users. That’s more than 8 million users per engineer! Everything you build will make an immediate impact on millions of people.

Some of the problems wikiHow engineers are working on: * Building user-facing features for our volunteer editing community that are fun enough to gather mass usage, while simultaneously making sure the output of the work produces high-quality educational information. It’s easy to get people to upload funny cat memes on the Web; the real challenge comes when you want them to create and curate the world’s best instructional content. * Creating features to bring in new content contributors. To keep growing and achieve our goals, we solve how to enable contributors from mobile devices, as well as continuing to gain new desktop community members. * Scaling, scaling, scaling. We get more users before 10 AM than most startups will get in their entire existence. * Big data. Lots of usage creates lots of data that we work with to further improve our products. * Mobile and tablets. The majority of wikiHow users will soon be on portable devices, but they don’t practice typical behavior patterns. We are rethinking wikis and collaboratively created content for the mobile era. * Reader delight features. Better software means happier readers. We’re inventing new ways to make learning pleasant and more efficient. * Your awesome idea! We value our employees ideas and opinions, and most of our projects originate from people on the team.

Our stack: PHP, Mediawiki, MySQL, Bash, Javascript, HTML/CSS, Python, C++, Memcache, Varnish, Nginx, Linux, iOS, Android. This is a partial list, because we also explore and test new technologies.

We’re looking for full-stack engineers, and are hiring people with a variety of experience levels and technology interests.

Causes.com - San Francisco - Relocation Available - FT

Causes.com is looking for great software engineers to join our growing eng team (currently 20). Design, build and deliver innovative tools that inspire people to create social change from their corner of the world. You’ll give people the ability to support their beliefs, clean up political corruption and provide real-time relief to those in need. Engineers at Causes tend to be jack-of-all-trades, though we love people who have mastered a specific part of the stack, from front-end to back-end and all the data in between. We believe that the only way to create change is for people to work together; it's the principle that guides how we run our company. From deep-dive product debates to catered lunch chats, every great idea gets its day at Causes. We encourage each other's interests just as much as we foster professional growth, and here those two tend to be one and the same.

We are currently hiring for software engineers and one iOS engineer. Read more about the positions at (http://causes.com/jobs)

Below are some common questions we get from engineers who are interested, and one of our awesome engineers has decided to answer them:

Q: What is your team environment like? A: The team environment is extremely open and loose. Our engineering team has a flat structure - one of our explicit goals is to create a space where we are all on equal footing to create opportunities to teach ourselves and learn from each other. We encourage everyone to be constantly questioning and evaluating our development processes so that we can keep getting better over time. Every engineer has a tremendous amount of power in terms of identifying what the most impactful things to be working on are, and to take on those challenges with the support of the team.

Q: Are you a pretty casual startup or more corporate styled? A: We have a couple key meetings each week. Each morning we have a standup that we expect the whole team to be present for; having the team start the day together is important to us. We finish each week with a retrospective where we gather around a whiteboard, have some drinks, and consider the process for the week. Taking time each week to reflect on what went well and how we can replicate success, as well as what didn't and how we can avoid similar mistakes in the future makes this feel like one of the healthiest teams I have ever been a part of.

Q: Do you guys pair program? A: We definitely encourage pairing - I probably spend about a quarter of my time coding with a partner, and I'm trying to find ways to do even more. We used to have pairing stations set up explicitly for this (two keyboards, two mice, four monitors), but as our team has gotten more comfortable with other solutions like screen sharing via tmux the pairing stations have gently fallen into disuse. I would love to hear what setups you have found to be successful in encouraging good pairing sessions. We're always looking to find more ways to effectively collaborate!

Q: What is the developer life like? A: In my opinion, the developer life at Causes is pretty spectacular. I get to work with some of the most awesome people I know, both technically and in a wide variety of other talents and interests. Jimmy, who leads our engineering team, used to be a performing stage magician. Rocky works with our Impact team and has represented the US in Ultimate Frisbee tournaments. There is a level of passion in my coworkers that I've never seen anywhere else, and I get to spend my time working, eating, talking, and playing with these people. As a developer, I get to work with fantastic technology. We are constantly upgrading our stack, and I often get to learn about things that are new to me. Most of our devs spend the day ssh'd into a workstation editing code in Vim, although we have one dev who tunnels the filesystem so that he can work in RubyMine, and at different times we have had folks working in TextMate, Sublime, Emacs, and Eclipse. All of our code goes through a code review tool called Gerrit that we use both to prevent software defects and as a way to teach each other about our craft. Gerrit is integrated with our Jenkins CI so that every patch has the complete test suite run against it before being merged.

We work in small development teams that generally include four developers, a product manager, and a designer. These teams give engineering access to the product design process that I haven't seen at the other companies I have been at. There's a neat sense of satisfaction when you are pairing with a designer to tweak a page into perfection. Working directly with the product team means that we get a lot of insight into what is coming down the pipe, and can often contribute to the direction of the product.


Have you seen enough and you're now interested in joining the team? Please send over some code samples and a linked/resume to jobs@causes.com with "HN" in the subject line.

Thanks! Causes.com team (http://www.causes.com/team)

San Francisco, CA. Full time.

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

Many people believe that science is too closed, and too slow. We are trying to change that. There are 4 things we are trying to achieve with Academia.edu - ways in which we are trying to re-shape and accelerate science:

- Instant distribution. Right now there is a 12 month time-lag between submitting a paper to a journal, and the paper being published. We need to remove that time-lag and introduce instant distribution of scientific ideas.

- Better peer review. Right now the peer review process takes 12 months to complete, and only surfaces the opinions of two academics - academics who may be biased, uninformed about the subject area, or just in a bad mood when writing the review. 2 people is too small a sample size. We need a faster and more robust peer review system, one that surfaces the opinions of the entire scientific community, across a variety of dimensions, and in real-time.

- Multi-media. Right now, scientists only share papers in PDF form. We need to bring about a science where scientists are incentivized to share data-sets, code, videos, blog posts, and comments on all these media. Right now 50% or more of the world’s scientific output does not get shared, because the system of credibility metrics only rewards one kind of format, the paper. We need to change this.

- Open access. We need to bring about a world where a villager in India has the same access to the world’s scientific output as a professor in Harvard. When you open up access to the world’s scientific literature to the 2.5 billion people who are online right now, magical things can happen.

It's an exciting time for science. Science is transitioning from a 17th century way of sharing ideas, based on the journal system, to a faster system of sharing ideas on the web. Science is a foundational part of global growth: almost every innovation in medicine and technology has its roots in a science paper.

We need talented and passionate engineers to help us accelerate science. We have made a good start: 2.9 million academics have joined Academia.edu, and 13,000 join each day. We're a 12 person, engineering-driven, team based in downtown San Francisco. Technologies we use include Rails, PostgreSQL, Redis, Varnish, Solr, Memcached, and Mongodb. We have raised $6.7 million from Spark Capital, True Ventures, Mark Shuttleworth (founder of Ubuntu), and others.

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. We are looking to hire a range of positions:

* full stack engineers * growth engineer (optimizing our growth and retention channels)

There is more information about the company on our hiring page, at http://academia.edu/hiring. There is more on TechCrunch about our mission here http://techcrunch.com/2012/02/05/the-future-of-peer-review/ (The Future of Peer Review) and here http://techcrunch.com/2012/04/29/the-future-of-science/ (The Future of Science)

We want to hire world class engineers. We want you to join us in building the future of science whether you are based in San Francisco, New York, Delhi, or Beijing. We will handle re-location, including visas, though unfortunately we are not currently hiring remote employees.

If you are interested to learn more, please email Ryan Jordan at ryanj [at] academia.edu

My fault, sorry for the typo, it has been fixed.

KashFlow, London - Front-end developer


At KashFlow we are not shy of taking the road less travelled. Right now we are redefining how SaaS products get delivered by building a first-of-its-kind application.

Bucking the common trend to build multiple native apps, which we feel is the antithesis of SaaS development, we are building a responsive single page web application. We don’t know of any other large scale apps (certainly none in this sector) that are targeting so many devices with a single codebase. But we are not about sticking with the pack.

That’s where you come in. We’re looking for the Indiana Jones of web development, a front-end dev who can navigate through the multi-platform/device/browser jungle that is the modern web.

You’ll be joining a team of passionate web geeks in our London office working for a profitable, fast growing startup. We’re not dependant on rounds of VC funding to stay afloat and your work will quickly find it’s way into the hands of thousands of existing users.

What you will bring to the team is technical expertise building interactive UIs and a wealth of experience making web applications work across different devices and browsers. Bonus points if you’ve got experience working in a client side application architecture as well.

You are obsessed about details. You do a sneaky victory dance whenever you knock 7ms off render time. You do more than just make things work. You come up with ingenious and elegant solutions, and you understand the quirks that make browsers behave differently. Although design isn’t necessarily your thing, you still work tirelessly to achieve pixel perfection.

You’re someone who stays up-to-date with what’s happening at the leading edge of web development. You easily formulate your own ideas and are able to make clear arguments for your opinions.

Core Skills

* JavaScript



* Code profiling, perf and optimisation

* Tooling (e.g. Chrome DevTools, the Command Line)

* Best practises (be prepared to write them)

Bonus points!

* Client side application frameworks, i.e. Backbone.js (hint: we use Backbone.js)

* Scrum/Agile

* Version control


* REST (API, not sleeping at your desk)

Type: Permanent

Hours: Mon-Fri, 9:00-17:30

Salary: DOE

Benefits: Private medical insurance, 21 days paid holiday

You need to be ambitious and able to turn a list of problems into a list of solutions. We’re a fun loving office so a good sense of humour is expected, not to mention all four of the attributes listed at http://www.kashflow.com/blog/i-p-e-a-the-four-attributes-you....

If you think this is you, then send me an email (daniel kashflow com) with your CV, a link to your GitHub profile, salary expectations and a covering letter explaining why you want the role, as well as what you bring to the table.

Please note: NO AGENCIES.

The Genome Institute at St. Louis, MO


Business & Technology Applications Analyst II (this is not an entry-level position)

Job Description

The Genome Institute at Washington University has an opening for a talented software engineer in the Bioinformatics group. The position will work with an experienced group of software engineers to develop software supporting the tracking of laboratory data and analysis processes to support large scale genomic research projects.

The Genome Institute has been at the forefront of genome research since its inception in 1993 and has been a part of major scientific projects such as the Human Genome, 1000 Genomes and TCGA (The Cancer Genome Atlas) Projects. The Genome Institute is a world-leader in the generation and analysis of genomic sequence data and uses this data to extend biological knowledge of the human genome and provide clinically relevant sequence analysis aimed at understanding human diseases (such as cancer and Alzheimer's disease). In addition, the Institute fosters public understanding of genomic science through various educational and outreach efforts.

Job Qualifications

The ideal candidate has a talent and love for writing software, is interested in developing that skill, and applying it in a production environment. The candidate will be expected to learn new things on a regular basis, think critically, and collaborate with other developers across groups. The environment is fast-paced and a person who likes to get things done will find a lot of opportunity.

Design, testing, debugging, and problem analysis are a regular part of the work. Skills in abstract software design, object-oriented architecture, relational data modeling, and web interface design will be used frequently, which will require thorough knowledge of each concept. The applicant will use these skills to develop software that will: interface with people and/or laboratory equipment, process and analyze large data sets on a compute cluster, and provide intuitive web based interfaces to the specifications of the laboratory managers and technicians.

Proficiency in dynamically typed languages (Perl, Ruby, Python, Lisp, etc.) is a plus, but not required. Understanding of relational databases and SQL will be helpful. Experience with web technologies such as HTML, CSS, Javascript and approaches such as REST and AJAX is an asset. Regular work will be done in GNU/Linux and other UNIX-like development environments. Familiarity with open source technologies, version control software such as git, and programming in a network environment are also assets.

Certification or degree in computer programming from a technical school or college plus two years of relevant work experience required. Additional relevant programming experience may be substituted on a year-for-year basis for required education.

You can also send questions and resumes directly to me.

We're a small startup - currently it's 2 full-timers (1 business, 1 tech [me]) plus some freelancers, advisors and partners. We're building a platform for the out-of-home advertising industry (billboards, bus shelters, buses, shopping centre panels, etc)

Our current tech stack is Java (GWT/Spring/Hibernate), Geoserver, AWS (EC2, S3, RDS), MySQL; but it's not set in stone.

It's a full stack analysis+development role, taking changes from requirement through to testing, from front-end through to the database, and also assist in providing operational support for the live site.

We have lots of opportunities that we're working through, and things are pretty fast-paced, so we need someone who is happy to receive requirements that are very loosely defined, flesh them out, produce a design (either in your head, or on paper depending on the size of the work) and then see it through development and testing.

We're based in Darlinghurst (Sydney, Australia) and we're looking for someone who can be physically present in the office, but there's plenty of flexibility (we're happy to have a mix of work in the office/work from home). Sorry, we're not set up to sponsor overseas applicants at this time.

The things we care about (in rough order)

- Good cultural fit. It's a small team so we'll be seeing a lot of each other, and we want that to be something we're all happy about

- A team player who can work with minimal supervision. We're busy and everyone's got a lot on their plate, so we want to be able to help each other out, but we also need everyone to be able to pick up their own work and run with it.

- Happy to work full stack & full life-cycle. One day might be spent brainstorming how we want some end-user features to work, and the next day spent neck deep in code. If you like that sort of variety, that's a good thing.

- Happy to work with our technology stack, and able to productive quickly. I don't care too much whether you have GWT or AWS experience, as long as you're happy to work with it, and happy to put the effort in to get up to speed fast. Obviously if having experience makes those things easier.

In return we can offer

- Flexible work arrangements. Both of us (the 2 full-timers) have young kids, so if you're in a similar situation we're happy to talk about how we can accommodate.

- A chance to do Java development in Sydney without working for a bank/telco/consultancy. Those who work in Sydney will know that there's only a handful of interesting companies, and the rest is big corporate dev work (I know, I've done lots of it). If you've got a Java skillset but want to break out of that world, then here's an opportunity.

- A fun office environment. We share office space with a couple of like-minded companies, and I think it's a fun place - hopefully you will too.
