Oculus VR - http://www.oculusvr.com/company/careers/ - Irvine, CA

We want everyone in the world to experience the impossible. We want your help building the virtual reality hardware and platform that takes people to beautiful new universes. Oculus is up to over 80 people (primarily engineers), and we are expanding quickly. In addition to a huge variety of positions in Irvine, CA, Oculus is looking for software engineers in Dallas, TX and researchers in Seattle, WA. We were recently acquired by Facebook, which gives us the resources to scale to consumer virtual reality.

A few of the positions that are especially important to us right now are:

* Embedded Systems Engineer - Design, prototype, and program the systems going into future virtual reality products.

* Senior Software Engineer - Develop core software products, services, and applications.

* Communications Manager - Define the overall voice and messaging for Oculus.

* Computer Vision Engineer - Research and develop algorithms and software for cutting edge 3D vision applications.

The full set of job listings you can apply to is at http://www.oculusvr.com/company/careers/

We've recently revamped our careers system, so you should apply directly there. You can email me with any questions at nrp@oculusvr.com


Are you guys hiring any summer interns?


Will you have people working in the Bay Area?


How about starting a Denver office? :)


Better yet, how about moving some hardware work to Dallas? :)


This was worthy of a downvote? Why?


I'm not the one that downvoted you, but here's why:

It's as groan-inducingly absurd as "how about you mail me a full stack of strawberry pancakes flaked with gold, just because I asked nicely?"

It adds nothing to the conversation but a silly, burdensome request thinly veiled as a lame joke.


Fair enough.


San Francisco, Mountain View - Matasano and iSEC Partners [WILL RELOCATE]

There are horrors beyond life's edge that we do not suspect, and once in a while man's evil prying calls them just within our range.

Talented tech people seek out jobs with interesting challenges. Different firms, different challenges. Here, a chance to grapple with large-scale payments; there, a purpose-built "big data" storage system; elsewhere, software running on an exotic platform; look hard enough and you may even find custom hardware to tinker with.

Consider a greater challenge: the one lurking in the shadows beneath all the other challenges; a maddening, beautiful challenge that awaits all applications, be they YC startups or giant tech companies, the hunt for which leads through the crevices of the payment processing gateways, the arcane backend of the storage system, and the insane, non-euclidian instruction patterns output by embedded compilers. The discovery of the unknown horrible secrets of our universe, the bending of those secrets to your will, and the billing of clients for PDF documentation of those secrets along with their exploitation steps and mitigation advice.

Matasano and iSEC together comprise one of the largest pure software security firms in the world. Our clients are the best companies --- and most of the largest of them. Our teams include some of the best researchers in the field.

I hire for both firms, our practices interlocked in an unholy embrace. You can read more about our hiring process at http://www.matasano.com/careers. Or, for a more philosophical take, here: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=7259845. Put simply: we hire for aptitude, we ignore resumes, we respect and appreciate candidates, and we put real effort finding good fits. iA Cthulhu, iA iA, &c &c. Also, unlimited soda.

You can find out more by mailing <careers at matasano.com>. A human being who knows what they're talking about will talk to you. And I'd like to think we're fun to talk to!

For some of the flavor of what we do, check out https://microcorruption.com/


As someone who just made it through the Matasano gauntlet, I can't recommend it enough. It was fun and challenging. If you're interested in doing security, get in touch with tptacek. I can't wait to get started myself.


Weft - http://weft.io - Boston, MA (LOCAL) + San Francisco, CA (LOCAL) + Eastern Europe (REMOTE).

   ====== What we do =========
We're a logistics visibility platform (read: Waze for Cargo). Weft tracks shipping containers using low-cost hardware to make sure that shipments get to where they're supposed to be on time and intact, saving billions in lost value due to cargo shrink and disrupted supply chains. We take the info we get from the hardware and figure out where the bottlenecks in the supply chain are, predict whether or not a shipment is going to make it to its destination on time, and dynamically reroute/reschedule shipments so that we can optimize the system as a whole. Really neat stuff. We're working on a lot of the things that happen once you have that data, but I can't share much about it here

   ===== How we do it ========
Web stack -> clojure (immutant) + postgres/cassandra/riak -- we use middleman + enlive (and a bit of hiccup) for templating, meaning that we're pretty flexible about frontend tech.

Algorithms -> a dizzying mixture of oldschool and newschool techniques ;-)

Hardware -> think cell phone on crack (atmel avr xmega, a bunch of sensors, gps, gsm, etc). Working integrated chip in the sub-$5 price point now! Have some pilots running with v1 hw.

   ====== And the rest =======
We've got some very interesting partners and customers (ranging from telcos to enterprise software providers to regional and international logistics companies). We also have some top tier investors!

Looking for help on mobile, frontend, and data science sides!

I should also probably mention that we have a team with a bunch of industry vets!

If this sounds interesting, please shoot me an email at marc@weft.io!


How much of a problem is cargo shrink and how often does cargo get lost? And if lost cargo is found, what is usually the reason? Theft?


Cargo shrink is a 25B/year problem in the US -- way bigger globally (logistics by itself is a 4T industry) -- however, we're more about fixing disruptable supply chains (which is way harder to measure, but also way larger). Cargo shrink can be theft, spoilage, misplacement, or a bunch of other similar reasons. Our hardware helps us track that kind of stuff and our predictive analytics helps us figure out the ramifications of what happens down the line!


That sounds like some huge operations research problems, I imagine you guys have some serious linear programming expertise.




Interesting. Are you also able to track cargo that is held by customs (which suffer from shrinkage due to poor security)?


That's one of our use cases!


Awesome. I actually filled out contact form. =)

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

At CircleCI we're building the next generation of developer automation: amazing Continuous Integration and Deployment. We have traction and revenue and funding and great customers. Our customers love us, because we move quickly, build great things, and provide amazing support. Everyone talks to customers a lot.

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, and have as flat a structure as we can. We're looking for frontend engineers (JS), designers (must be able to HTML+CSS), and backend engineers (Clojure). Being a mix of those is of course welcome! We lean towards senior experienced engineers, or junior engineers who can display great talent.

We're also looking for engineers for Developer Success and Developer Awareness positions. Since we have an incredibly technical product, and selling directly to developers, the dev-awareness positions (think marketing, but much more dev-oriented: dev evangelism, writing interesting blogs, CRO, analytics, etc - think a patio11-style engineer) require significant development experience. Dev-success positions are a good fit for engineers who like working with people and building relationships with customers.

Check out our jobs page at https://circleci.com/jobs.


Dude, you should brag about your approach to private offices, like your designer wrote about:


It reminds me of Joel Spolsky's articles on their approach to workspaces.


It's so rare to find a workplace in SF that's not an open office plan that some of the most productive people retreat to remote work just to get shit done in their home office, like Rands did with his Nerd Cave:


Talking about the productivity of private offices could be a major attractor, the way Microsoft way back in the day had a big poster for college recruiting that was a photo of a door and the words "you'll get one of these" on it.

Future employee's rant (some previous experience):

A future employee's first experience at your company is his job application. When someone has taken the time to apply to your company, here are some things that would be nice if done:

* When you post that you are hiring, either here or elsewhere, please make sure to reply as fast as possible. Delaying action on job applications doesn't help both you and the candidate.

* Even if you are not interested in the candidate, sending a reply, however simple, helps in more ways than you can imagine.

(Sorry to hijack this thread)


Please do not hijack the thread.

Detroit-based start-up (funded, stable, paying competitive salaries) looking for experienced Magento developers.

Chalkfly.com is looking for an amazing, experienced, OO PHP developer with deep Magento experience to join our fast-growing, first-rate development team. As a software developer, you would responsible for end-to-end product development, from architecture, to development, to rollout. You must be comfortable participating in design and code reviews, as well as delivering accurate estimates, providing regular development progress feedback and consistently meeting project deadlines. Our developers are effective at explaining complex ideas and concepts to non-technical team members.

This is a full time position that would work out of our downtown Detroit office. Occasional telecommuting (like one day a week) is on the table, but we really need people who can be in the office most of the time.

Here's our stats:

    Company size: 19

    Current dev team size: 5 (and hiring as fast as we can find good people)

    Stack: LAMP

    Version Control: Git

    Bug Tracking: Github Issues

    Project Management: Basecamp

    Mac or PC: Dealer's choice. We currently have 2 devs on mac and 1 on PC.

    Office style: Open floor plan, collaborative working environment, very casual.

    Dev methodologies: We borrow elements of various frameworks, but in general we work in monthly sprint cycles, daily stand-ups, weekly overview meetings.

    Hours: The dev team likes to have people here by 10am most days.
A word about Detroit: The city gets a lot of bad press. It might not look like an attractive option to people who are considering offers from NY or CA, but I would really encourage people to at least take a look. We're in a building with about 20 other tech start-ups who have all received funding. There is serious investment happening in the city right now. Two months ago I looked up and Warren Buffet (completely unannounced) was 10 feet away from my desk (he's partnering on several projects in the city). We sit right across from the Detroit Twitter office. We're on the same block as the Detroit Google office. Comerica Park, where the Detroit Tigers play, is 100 yards from our office. Ford Field, where the Lions play, is another about 300 yards away. The part of the city we're in is clean and safe with newly built downtown living alternatives. All I'm saying is: give it a look.

If you're interested in finding out more, shoot me an email at evan@chalkfly.com.


+1 for Detroit.

I am from the NYC area but I visit my wife's family in Detroit about two times a year and always have a blast.


+1 for Detroit - it is a great tech hub.


That seems to be an overstatement. I find myself visiting Detroit every two months or so (my SO is in Macomb working) from the Bay Area and although there's more companies starting, the tech scene is still very small (even when compared to places like Seattle).

When I've looked at opportunities at Google or Twitter in Detroit/Birmingham, it's really all sales and account management jobs targeted at folks servicing the auto makers.

Don't get me wrong, I like parts of Detroit but I still don't feel safe when driving around the "wrong" parts of town. It's getting better but by no means is it there.


+1 for Detroit and +1 for Michigan, hope you find what you're looking for!

Gurock (http://www.gurock.com/) - Berlin, Germany

Hiring: Technical Support Engineer (English, full time) + others

We are a small & successful bootstrapped software company from Germany and build popular web-based applications for software teams. We have been in business since 2004 and many thousands of teams, both small and large, use our products.

We are hiring for different positions, but our main focus right now is on hiring a technical support engineer to help us support our TestRail customers. This is not a typical support role though, as our products and customers are very technical (they are software dev/testing teams), so it's an interesting and challenging position.

As most of our customers are from the US, Canada or other non-German speaking countries, excellent English writing and communication skills are critical for this role (German not required). You can learn more about the Support Engineer role here:


We have recently opened a nice office in Berlin (Prenzlauer Berg, near Mitte) and offer great benefits. We use a modern web development stack with PHP, an advanced custom MVC framework (like Rails), Vagrant etc. We provide a very productive and flexible working environment.

If you are in Berlin (or plan to move to Berlin soon) and one of our open positions sounds like a good fit, let me know.

Notting Hill, London, England, U.K.

Our web application is at the heart of our busy and successful e-commerce business; every day it serves millions of product images and handles hundreds of thousands of user visits, but we can and do update the live site with new code multiple times per day without missing a beat. Our systems are written on the LAMP stack and deployed on Amazon Web Services using Puppet and Capistrano; we are migrating to Symfony 2 as our MVC framework. Developers choose the tools that work best for them - for instance, at the moment we have a mix of Linux and Mac workstations in the team. We are adopting and adapting agile development techniques such as evolutionary design, pair programming, and continuous deployment. We hold regular retrospectives to improve our working environment. Our developers are generalizing specialists; a typical day may include refining an algorithm, writing a tricky integration test, tuning an SQL query, and discussing feature nuances with a product manager. Our team is growing fast and we'd like to hear (at careers@secretsales.com) from any of you who'd like to join us; we're hiring for all technical roles, especially developers of all levels of experience.

Established in London in July 2007, Secretsales.com is the UK's leading private shopping club, offering limited-time online sales with current name-brand goods at deep discounts. Brands include fashion, beauty, homeware, and lifestyle categories, many of them familiar from the high street. The company has about eighty employees and a substantial annual turnover; it was recently selected to join the UK's Future Fifty programme for the country's most rapidly growing startups.

Engine Yard - Fulltime, REMOTE

Frontend Engineer

We're one of the oldest PaaS's out there, with support for PHP/Ruby/Java/node.js and both AWS and Azure. Earlier this year we launched a brand new user experience from the ground-up -- a new website and a completely new client-side interface. As a Frontend Engineer, you'd be working primarily on the latter.

The UI is written using angular.js served up by a lightweight node.js api proxy server. We use mocha/selenium web driver for our tests and only accept green builds via travis to be merged to master. Through our "eybot" on slackhq, we deploy stable code to production multiple times a day.

The UX engineering team at Engine Yard consists of 3 UI designers and 4 engineers (including myself). We're spread out across 8 timezones (Dublin through San Francisco), so experience working in a distributed team is key.

You'll get:

    * Competitive salary
    * Full medical, dental and vision benefits
    * 25 paid days off per year
    * 401(k)
    * We take care of your phone bill
    * Paid travel to conferences
Must haves:

    * A passion for writing great software to solve real problems for real people
    * Demonstrated experience building complex client-side applications in
      JavaScript, preferably with angular.js
    * Experience working in a distributed team
    * The strong belief that a feature isn't finished until it's tested and, where
      appropriate, documented
    * A fantastic sense of sarcasm
    * Ability to travel occasionally (at least once or twice a year)
    * Somewhere between UTC and UTC-8
Great to have:

    * Thorough understanding of git
    * Experience building REST apis
    * Experience with multiple languages (and an understanding of their tradeoffs)
    * Previously worked at a startup
If you're interested, shoot me your info at cewing@engineyard.com.


You mention that you're hiring remote, but the positions on your website list a specific location, and the front-end Dev gig isn't listed at all. is this an HN-specific posting?


At the moment, the position has only been posted to HN, though it should be up on the site and other job boards today. It just opened up, so I was eager to get it posted in this thread.

We are building revolutionary connected devices and software tools to measure progress and motivate people to do more every day.

Boston Software Engineers: http://jobvite.com/m?35Rglgwi

San Francisco Software Engineers: http://jobvite.com/m?3XSglgwb

San Francisco Hardware Engineers: http://jobvite.com/m?3kVhlgwC

San Francisco Interns: http://jobvite.com/m?3hTglgww


Soon-to-be computer engineer here. If I applied for both software and hardware stuff would I be interviewed by the same people? In that case could I just apply once? Because there are lots of things I'd love to do for you guys.


Apply to either position and mention that you're also interested in the other. A recruiter told me that's the best way to handle applicants interested in multiple positions.

I'm in the Boston office where we only do software, so I'm not sure about the interview process if you also do hardware. I would think it would be different interviewers.


Thanks, will do! Right now I'm pretty well interested in working in San Francisco, as Boston would be a huge jump I'm not ready for. The hardware stuff looks cool, but I don't know if I have enough experience for that (as usual). I wonder where people even start off with embedded software, since every job listing I've seen for such a thing requires 5+ years.

The funny thing is the MSP430 is more of a hobbyist's building tool than something I'd expect someone with 5 years to use. As a college student I've used slightly more powerful platforms, but I'd love to work with that. TI even has a nifty watch platform ,that I've been thinking about buying to toy around with.

Anyway, if not for that, there's plenty of mobile stuff I'd love to work on too :D Your company is pretty cool in that regard since you cover both bases, just as I do.

Thanks for coming here to talk about fitbit ^^


I heard you guys were totally overwhelmed with embedded programmers. What do you like to see in an applicant to stand out? :)


Recruiters are asking me if I know applicants. If you think I might "know" you through your HN reputation, shoot me an email with your yc username. @fitbit.com I'm blewis, not brlewis.


For the intern page, all I see are full time positions. Should I apply regardless and specify my intent to be an intern?


Monetate - Conshohocken, PA (Philly suburbs) - No remote, but we will relocate.

Monetate helps digital marketers make their content more relevant. We turn data into action on our clients' sites by doing real-time data analysis and DOM manipulation to put the right experience in front of their users. We’re looking for engineers who want to do highly visible work on great brands and solve tough problems with great coworkers. What we're looking for:

* People who like to ship - we're focused on building and shipping great products - if you like to see your work in production quickly you'll see it here. We ship often (every two weeks), and iterate.

* People who like hard challenges - we have great problems across our products - huge data sets, UX, 3rd party Javascript, high volume / low latency APIs - we have no shortage of fun problems to work on.

* Problem solvers who like to code - we take things apart, figure out how they work, then build software to solve our users' problems.

About us:

* Founded in 2008

* Respect - it's our core value. We have a great team and we work well together. Our vacation policy is the same as Netflix (we don't have one). Our technical project teams are self-organizing and have full authority over (as well as responsibility for) the problems they work on.

* Open source - Google Closure, Python, AngularJS, Pandas, Redis, Hadoop, Mahout, Solr and Lucene - we're open source across our stack

* Market rate salaries

* Funded by First Round Capital and OpenView

We've hired great people from HN before, and we're looking for people not positions. We have people who have joined the team with no background in our primary languages and people from non-traditional backgrounds.

Hey everyone, hope your April is off to a killer start!

Like in last month's Who is hiring I wanted to share all our numbers for complete transparency. March just came to a close and Buffer stands at 1.4M total users served by a small 21 person team spread across 14 cities and 5 continents. 130,000 of our users are actively using the product each month. We generated $350,000 in March, and we have $580,000 in the bank. The average salary at the company is $98,000 and our total funding to date is $450,000 which we raised in December 2011, for which we gave up 14% of the company. I'm sharing all of this because one of the highest values we have at Buffer is to be fully transparent, and I'd love for you to be part of the incredible journey we've embarked upon.

At 16% month over month revenue growth on average in the last 6 months, we're seeing increasing demand to build out the product further and help our fast-growing customer base with all their social media problems. To achieve this, we'd love your help with some interesting engineering challenges. Do any of these areas stand out for you? I'd really love to hear from you:

    - Reliability Hacker (we're sending 450,000 posts to
      social networks every day, our architecture is still
      not ideal)
    - Android Lead (our Android app has half a million
      downloads but currently no full-time developer!)
    - iOS Hacker (our favorite people who use Buffer are
      all crying out for an iPad app)
    - Growth Hacker (our landing page conversion is at 7%,
      we'd love your help improving it and many other
    - Frontend Hacker (last month 130,000 people used
      Buffer, we'd love to improve our dashboard interface
      and extensions for them)
Some of the tech we work with: PHP, Python, MongoDB, AWS (Elastic Beanstalk, Elasticache, SQS), Backbone.js, Grunt.js, Android, iOS).

    - We're completely open about salary and equity, in
      fact here is a spreadsheet of all individual salaries:
      It's most likely you'd fall into a range of
      $85,000-$150,000 and 0.1%-1%.
    - We're a fully distributed remote team, and we come
      together 3 times a year for super fun retreats.
      The last one was in Thailand in December, our next
      is Cape Town in April!
    - We have a big focus on culture, that's the main thing
      we think about when someone joins the team. Here is
      our slide deck of values:
I'll read through emails with our CTO Sunil, I hope yours might be part of that. Send him a quick note at thenexthacker@bufferapp.com. If you'd like you can check out more details about all the areas we need help with at http://jobs.bufferapp.com

I'm excited about the chance to work with you. If you have any questions about our culture, product or journey so far, add a reply to this - I'll be checking throughout the day to get back to you :-)

- Joel (Founder/CEO)


I'll be transparent and say: I think it's crazy you expect developers to take a 45 day risk/trial period, in order to work at the company.

I'm an experienced dev (3+ years of wholesome experience + a solid work portfolio) and I could even deal with the rather significant pay cut I'd be taking... but a pay cut + risking not having employment, when I'm already settled in a current job?

No thanks.

But good luck.


> I'm an experienced dev (3+ years ...

This is still "barely out of school, hardly knows what he's doing" stage :)

Edit - downvote me all you want, but if you are to show up on the interview and declare that you are in an "experienced dev (with 3+ years)", the interview will conclude quickly. It's not that you have just three years of experience, it's the fact that you think it's a lot. It's not. This makes you cocky and cockiness can be costly, especially in an otherwise coherent team.


Sure, whatever. Have it.

...but that still doesn't negate the fact that expecting anyone worth their salt to give up a current level of security for a 45 day gamble with Buffer is a smart hiring strategy.


Experience is relative. Compared to a 15+ year veteran sure, this guy's but a baby in the crib.

But he's still a baby in the crib with recruiters beating down his door left, right, and center, none of whom are expecting him to quit his job for a vague, conditional offer of employment.

This isn't about who deserves what, this is about the market conditions. Right now the market conditions are such that even devs with ~3 years of experience are highly sought after, with likely multiple recruiter contacts per day if they are even half decent at advertising their abilities.

This isn't about whether or not what Buffer expects is "wrong" (for whatever ephemeral notion of right and wrong), it's about what Buffer can get away with. In the current market they most certainly cannot get away with it.


Define "half decent at advertising their abilities". I am going on 12 years hardware and software experience, and aside from shitty spam recruiters I have never had anyone beatig down my door.


If you don't have a LinkedIn profile, get one.

Make sure your summary is well written and keyworded with words that recruiters are looking for (and that apply to you) - Rails, C++, graphics, what have you.

Flesh out your past jobs section. Keyword these descriptions too as relevant (technologies used, major popular frameworks, libraries, etc).

Basically reverse engineer the recruiter's practices - they're using a search tool, searching for keywords relevant to the position they're fielding. This is not very different from SEO. Increase the likelihood of being in a search result and watch the recruiters pile in.

While you're at it, make sure your resume is always up to date and available on your own website (if you don't have a website, get one). Make sure you are high up in Google results for your own name. Keyword your resume the same way you'd do your LinkedIn profile - maybe ~5% of the recruiters that show up end up coming directly via my website through some kind of search.


Well, that goes much further than I would go in defining "half decent". To me, that comes off as a real Type A, game the system type approach. If the market was really as hot as is often claimed, that would not be remotely necessary in order to be noticed.

What I think is going on, having observed from outside for many years, is that a certain subset of companies are fighting over the same small subset of engineers (self confident, type A shameless marketeers who happen to already be located in SV, NYC, or Seattle) and complaining that they can't find people because this subset is too small to satisfy them all.

I have had a LinkedIn profile for almost as long as LinkedIn has been around. I have had a website with my own domain name since 1999. I do not have personal or professional experience in $FLAVOR_OF_THE_WEEK. Despite all the talk here and elsewhere about how its fundamentals that matter and anyone competent can pick up $LANGUAGE or $FRAMEWORK in the time it takes to become familiar with the codebase, everyone still seems to hire based on the buzzwords.

No one ever taught me that I should be treating my resume like an SEO problem. In fact, I have received so much contradictory advice about how to structure my resume over the years that I am almost ready to throw up my hands in disgust. Plus, the idea of keyword-loading my resume and LinkedIn profile makes me feel dirty; hell, SEO in general makes me feel dirty.


You're not using the technologies that are in demand, you're not writing detailed work histories, and you're not putting key words into your resume, please tell me you do not wonder why you're not being head hunted.

You belittle developers who are trying to advance themselves, their knowledge and make a good living with your Type A thing.

Everything starts off as a flavor of the week, Ruby on Rails was just a flavor of the week type deal and then it became huge. Same with Node now and with other stacks before that.

I've done recruiting, and am just finishing up a round for my company and lazy developers who half ass their resumes are frustrating. Trying to search for someone is a pain in the ass and not everyone is a professional developer, some of us are just developers at small companies trying to expand. If more people had well written LinkedIn profiles it would make our lives easier. If not a LinkedIn than you need to find some way to make yourself visible if you want to be headhunted.

That's not to say it's a bad thing, you can be a very well paid very comfortable developer without ever being head hunted, but having a well made portfolio will make your life easier certainly.


First off, I apologize for my tone. I was tired and cranky last night when I wrote that and should not have posted it. I did not intend to belittle anyone, though it came out that way.

> You're not using the technologies that are in demand, you're not writing detailed work histories, and you're not putting key words into your resume, please tell me you do not wonder why you're not being head hunted.

I'm not sure if you are saying this with or without having looked at my information, so I will write the response assuming you have not.

I use what my employers require me to use, plus whatever else I can get away with that is appropriate for the task at hand. I also experiment with new languages in my free time, though I stopped listing those on my resume and LinkedIn profile on the advice that I should only be listing items I was willing to be tested on. If I find something that is better for a task that needs doing, I use it. As for my work history, I have a detailed history, but I tried to control the amount of detail in each entry to avoid making it too long.

> Everything starts off as a flavor of the week, Ruby on Rails was just a flavor of the week type deal and then it became huge. Same with Node now and with other stacks before that.

Absolutely, though most fade away into relative obscurity at some point. The point I was trying to make there is that I frequently see statements about fundamentals being important and specific technologies not being important because technologies can be learned quickly by a competent developer. Yet the laundry lists of technology requirements seems to grow monthly. I'm going to learn new stacks because they are interesting and potentially useful to me, not to pad my resume.

Overall, maybe it was a good thing I shoved my foot in my mouth above. It drove me to think critically about my overall presentation to the outside world. I usually approach it with too much emotional attachment.


It's okay I was cranky when I responded, also I meant not everyone is a professional recruiter in my comment.


> "though I stopped listing those on my resume and LinkedIn profile on the advice that I should only be listing items I was willing to be tested on."

I'd recommend listing them, especially if you are interested in jobs that use them. If you are suffering from a deluge of recruiters, by all means, do what you need to do to slow down the flow - but it doesn't seem like that's your problem.

Here's the thing - the people who are going to be interviewing you and ascertaining your technical capabilities are not the same ones looking for you on the internet (LinkedIn and beyond). Don't let a non-technical person say no to you (or worse, never see your profile to begin with).

Put the keyword up, there's no need to be deceptive about it. "Hi, you look like a good fit at our company because of X" "I've used X in my spare time but never professionally, if that's alright with you let's continue the conversation" - you'd be surprised at how many companies are willing to keep talking. The demand is intense.

There's nothing untoward or dishonest happening here. You're listing out the things that you know, you're not lying about anything, you're being entirely upfront - the only extra consideration is writing in such a way that someone searching for you would see you in a search result. Name-drop languages, frameworks, libraries, as appropriate, because those are the primary levers recruiters know to pull when searching.

> "I have a detailed history, but I tried to control the amount of detail in each entry to avoid making it too long."

I'd suggest expanding. We're way past the days where recruiting happened via a pile of resumes on someone's desk, and a long one would make it straight into the rubbish bin without a glance. By the time human eyes hits your profile page it's already gone through a search filter and likely other recruitment filters - it's okay to be a bit verbose since interest is already there. Especially if this verbosity increases your odds of making it past a search filter.

> "I'm going to learn new stacks because they are interesting and potentially useful to me, not to pad my resume."

Right, and my suggestion isn't to pad your resume with useless filler. That does nobody any good - recruiters end up looking at profiles that have nothing to do with the jobs they're looking to fill. The idea is to think about the jobs you want (and are qualified for), think about what their recruiters are searching for, and making sure your profile gets hit when they search for said things.

The goal isn't to appear in more search results in general, it's to appear in more search results relevant to the jobs you're looking to find.


Exactly this. Listing things you've done as a hobby that you aren't comfortable saying you can work with is a bonus. It shows you are committed to being a passionate developer, which is of course a very very good thing.


I wonder this too! I don't know anyone complaining about their doors being beat down by recruiters lol.


Just because (some) recruiters may be "beating down his door" doesn't mean he's qualified for those jobs. Recruiters routinely overfit, just to cram as many resumes and profiles into their hiring funnels as possible. Throw it at the wall, see if it sticks.

Being as 90% of them can't tell the wheat from the chaff to save their skins, they have no other choice, really.


Absolutely true. Especially the bit about recruiters.


I'd say 3 years at a certain company can gain you loads of experience rather than 8 years at a different one. Context is key here as well.


Yea, 3 years can be very little. But 3 years of real experience (plus intelligence) and the ability to actually come up with new and relevant solutions to problems probably trumps 15+ years of doing the same year's worth of work over and over again (not that uncommon), 20+ years working on technology that's no longer relevant, 10+ years of only doing what you're told while not being able to think for yourself, or any other number of things.

Filter out cockiness/arrogance that gets in the way of productivity/progress, etc: yes. Tell someone who's simply confident in their abilities that they don't know what they are doing because they only have 3 years of experience: no.

I understand that the prevalence of the so-called "entitled youth" has everyone ruffled these days, but there's a difference between being arrogant and feeling entitled (I'm sure these people exist, but don't they always), and not accepting the old world BS of bowing your head, taking everyone's shit, doing what you're told, then settling for the scraps that get thrown your way (something you should feel so lucky to have happen). In the case of the latter, that world needs to die, and I'm all about progress and moving past such suffocating, stagnating, backward nonsense.

Also, when it comes to programming, after about 5 years everyone evens out (with regards to gains unique/specific to years of experience) and there isn't really much difference. Everything past that is mostly inside knowledge or factual knowledge that you get from happening to work at one company or another (or with some person that happens to know said things). And since the technological landscape (past whatever the latest buzzwords or fads are) changes at least every 5 years, all that specific knowledge loses relevance with time.


And yet even this lowly peon of an engineer, who appears to be contently employed and presumably has great employment prospects if he wants a new job, is offput by this policy. If anything, that intensifies his point.


I can’t judge (not being exactly a developer) but I was repeatedly told in the last weeks that anything above five years of experience was not meaningful. I’m not sure I was too happy about that. More importantly I have worked with people with three years on the job that are juniors, and with people whose three years of experience let them run circles around my stories.

My point is: being cocky is always bad. There isn’t any real standards otherwise, but… you need to be aware that using absolutes makes you redeemable to a lot of things.


I agree with you and I think the salaries are quite low. I'm just being honest.


Yeah really. This is a particular strain of bullshit that I've been hearing about a lot recently. It flows from the hire slow fire fast mantra of "lean startups." It feels and sounds like the cheapening of talent/expertise and people. Frankly I think treating people like reality show contestants even once they're in the door is bottom of the barrel behavior.


Ding ding ding! We have a winner!

I understand the problem for Buffer, but this isn't the solution.

I've heard of companies who offer people to consult on weekends for a predetermined total number of hours to accomplish much the same outcome. Annoying, but I'll play ball.

...but really. I seriously doubt any high-end dev talent is willing to take such risks. And if you think this hiring strategy would be successful in attracting high-end dev talent that really cares about Buffer, well you haven't examined the hiring market lately and are likely high off your own supply.


I don't know what's worse, the 45 day trial or the "congratulations! You've jumped through 3 fire hoops! Now you have the chance to come spend a full day being interviewed by 10 different people!" stuff.

A lot of companies have probation periods though.


You're on a trial at every single company anyway, they just aren't as up front about it.


well, I'm just feeling a bit burned after a presentation I sat through the other week on the topic.


I have to agree. What I think is a big deal here is for developers with families. 45 days is 45 days without health insurance and other important benefits. There is COBRA, but that's two months of paying that bill. For most family plans that's 3 - 4k in expense.

That said, it really depends how much they are paying the prospective employee while contracting. If it's enough to make up for that then it might be worth the risk to some people.


What's that you say? Developers with families and (gasp) kids? You mean developers older than 22, with actual lives and responsibilities outside of work? Inconceivable!

I will say this, though— I give them credit for being open about what they really want. A lot of companies don't do that.


Ha. Sometimes feels like that.

The transparency make them one of the better companies out there. Though I'm surprised this trial period isn't mentioned in their job listings in some way.


Isn't the "45 day trial" just a disclosure of a reality that is always the case? Unless you're going to get an actual contract, which as far as I know is rare for this kind of work, you're always technically on a "trial," even after years at the company.


where did you find this info?


See footnote at this: http://open.bufferapp.com/two-more-happiness-heroes-join-the...


I emailed a few months ago. Stock standard response like it was a job application when I actually asked several specific questions.

I'm sure you guys are great to work for, but don't promise to read every email if I'm just gonna get a mail merge reply.


I just sent my resume, it's the fourth time. I remember writing to Buffer on September 2013, December 2013 and January 2014. I got the same reply the three times lol.


Hey there,

Great point on this. We've recently had a meeting discussing this in detail, I think you're absolutely right, it doesn't make people feel great to get a standard response like the one you've received. We've been trying to come up with a better way to personally respond to people, which has proven quite difficult. There were 2,000+ applicants last month and I think we're still trying to figure out the best work-flow to make each response tailored.

I wanted to assure though that we've read your email (and we do read each and every email, always), even though we sent a standard response (which I totally agree with isn't a great method). Hope that might help and I hope we can come up with a better solution to respond to you and everyone individually in the future. If anyone has had experience on this, would love your thoughts!


If I can be honest — and maybe that’s me not being used to American-grade fertilizer, but… 

That response sounds exactly like the problem. I believe that anything else than:

“Indeed. We f*cked up. I’ve e-mailed you with short answers. Detailed coming soon.

Anyone with a similar issue, please let us know how we can recognize your e-mail.”

would be inappropriate. No one not invited cares about a meeting. Starting by “Great point … absolutely right … doesn’t make people feel great … trying to come up with a better way” and other unnecessary precautions around completely obvious points makes you sound like a politician on SNL. There is no ‘trying to come up with better ways’ to a personal e-mail: there is starting to do it, realising you don’t have the man-power to do it, confessing that you are late on the task. It’s either more important than what you are working on or not, but that shouldn’t take ten lines to figure out.

I love you -- that’s why I tell you how you can be a better version of yourself.


What does it matter if you read my email but didn't give me an actual response?

What do you expect me to do with this information?

On a solution: if every email was read, they should be categorised to ascertain whether they require a tailored reply (ie they had questions that aren't answered with a stock response).

Unless the majority of emails had questions not covered in the response that was sent (I can't imagine they did) you would have a much smaller set of emails to tailor replies.


Hi Leo,

I applied and received a form rejection (which I am actually OK with and totally understand) but when I sent two followup emails I heard no response back. If you really read every email, do you also ignore the questions?

I also asked for just a few sentences of feedback. I expect this from the average company, but not from yours. You have strong values, but don't live up to them.


I'm quite happily self-employed at the moment, but good grief - if I wasn't, this is exactly the kind of thing I'd love to read if I was seeking a new challenge. Kudos for your clearly serious commitment to openness, and even more for not filling the "what we want" section with fluff. People who are happy to say "we'd love to be better at this, could you help us in some way?" are the most fun and rewarding to work with (and I'm lucky that I usually do).

Good luck!


Wow, thanks so much for the kind words. Let me know if I can ever help with anything, and good luck with the self-employed business! :-)


I'm a college student who is studying finance and computer science right now. Naturally, startups are extremely interesting to me. Your level of transparency helped me better understand fundraising, equity structures, and how to think of financial operations. A refreshing and inspiring post for someone in my shoes - thank you!


Thanks; tip for next month (to head off some of the questions):

  > Please lead with the location of the position and include 
  > the keywords INTERN, REMOTE, or VISA


Well Joel, I don't know why Buffer is reposting this stuff every month even though you don't seem to have open headcount. This was response from Sunil from last month:

"I’m sorry to say we couldn’t bring you on board as our next Hacker at this point. I hope you don't take this personally. We were absolutely overwhelmed by the huge volume of people like you who sent in their fantastic experiences and ideas for what they would want to achieve as part of Buffer.

At this stage, we were only looking for a few more people, so the choice was extremely difficult to make and we had to turn away a lot of genuinely amazing people."

It sounds more like a template that was sent across multiple people.

It would appreciate if you only post here if there is genuine opening unless you are just craving for more and more applications(that doesn't make sense).


Joel, I'm impressed that you documented your idea of company culture in such an early phase. I've learned that agreed ideas about company culture play more important role in a startup than usually given credit to. If the founding team has strong shared understanding of culture, they don't necessarily need to be explicit, but I think it would be beneficial for many startups to write a few key ideas down, to make sure that everybody is on the same page.

Question: Did you learn this hard way from your previous companies, or was it suggested by a mentor, or was it obvious to you from the beginning that it is good idea to write them down?


Just interesting, how many emails do you get per post?

I have a feeling that getting any reply from you will be like a winning a lottery (thus, I've never applied so far).


We've been transparent about how many applications we get, which is quite a lot from what I've heard other founders say when I've mentioned the numbers: http://open.bufferapp.com/hiring-at-buffer-in-february-2024-... (we probably get at least 100 emails from HN if we end up near the top).

We're lucky to have a lot of interest and so in some ways I guess it ends up like a lottery. At the same time, we try and share as much as we can around the culture and when it is a good fit. Here's a post about that: http://open.bufferapp.com/how-we-hire/

Let me know if you have any questions :-)

Edit: To answer your question about getting a reply - we reply to every single email, even though it can be tough and can take a couple of weeks or so for us to get to them all.


Very happy about how open you are. This is amazing!

A couple of questions: 1) what are "Happiness Heroes" and "Weekend Warriors"? What do they do for your company?

2) it seems that Mary is getting screwed, although I don't know how much your equity is worth. Why the disparity between Mary's salary and Adam's? She makes 20% less but only has .045 percent more equity...


Great questions Ryan!

Happiness Heroes are the people who help customers with queries via Email, Twitter and Live Chat. Weekend Warriors are people in the team who help with those same things during the weekend (though it's a full-time 5 days a week role, so 3 other days too). We have 6 full-time members of this Happiness team, it's something we make a very high priority. In the last month we answered 92% of emails within 6 hours, 65% within 1 hour, with a volume of around 10,000 emails.

I can definitely see how it seems Mary is getting screwed. Our equity number there is misleading, she has 0.3% (column to the right). Key things to note: Mary lives in Spokane, which has a relatively low cost of living and falls into our "C" bracket in the salary formula. If she moves, her salary will go up by either $6K or $16K depending on where she moves to. Also, Mary chose equity over salary (yay) which is a choice to increase equity by taking $10K less salary. I hope that helps explain things there, let me know if you have any more questions!


"I can definitely see how it seems Mary is getting screwed."

I love how you guys went fully transparent but I lost it at this one lol. I was kinda put off by the "we get hundreds of emails" stuff but I guess I'll go ahead and join in the herd. You guys seem pretty cool.


This sounds like the place for me! I've been looking for months for a company with a culture like yours.

I love that you guys are completely open but would love to know what your engineering interview process is like?

I'm awful at interviewing and would love to know how you guys handle it.


Hi there! Our engineering interview process is something we're continuously iterating on. At the moment this is how it looks: 1 technical interview with Sunil (discussion on past experience, code walkthrough and a high level technical question). 2 culture interviews with Carolyn and Leo. Then a mix bag interview with Joel. If all goes well, we have a 45 day trial period where we gauge technical and culture fit from both sides. Hope that helps!


Is this a 45 day trial period full time with benefits? Or just being a contractor with no benefits for 45 days?


Can you talk more about how you grant equity? Do you have vesting schedule for new hires? Also, how does the $10k salary cut for more equity work? do you grant extra equity for every year they take the cut e.g. 0.25% for every year they do it?


I sent an email to the link you provided last month as well as a separate one to your lead iOS dev and didn't even get a canned response. What gives?


This the craziest job posting I think I've ever seen in any of these threads. The salary link? Insane.


Let me know if you have any questions about that or anything else :-)


Mother of god I'm an Android/iOS/BB developer and I make 45k a year with 0 benefits whatsoever. I put in my two weeks notice two weeks ago!

I would cry if I was paid this much.


The average salary for developers is roughly in 80-100k. As a recent grad, almost all of my peers were in the 60-125k range. The only salary I've seen that was grossly under the average was 48k- but that was expected.. the employer was TXDOT.

Edit: Please assess your contributions and value yourself at market value. Having a conversation with your manager about your market value should yield a higher salary that is competitive. If not, move along. As a mobile developer, you could be contracting for much more than 45k.


It depends heavily on where you live.


He said I'm "lucky to make this much" because I have no education, despite nobody else on the team being able to successfully and efficiently replace me. I'm leaving in one month, only because the project is wrapping up at that time and it would be pointless to quit earlier. I can't wait.


Congrats, and best wishes.


Surprised you would only make that little - I started as a frontend developer at a non-profit for $51k, which is also under the market (and a non-profit to boot).

Depending on where you live, you could easily fetch $20k more, if not even more than that.


Which city, country?

Hey Last month I sent a mail to ioshacker@bufferapp.com, didn't get any reply. Should I apply again?


Love the culture!! Hope you soon have a requirement for a data scientist/engineer !!


Speaking of positions to be added, I have to wonder how many startups get around the issue of information security. Most of the security-related jobs I see here are either for security-related companies (Palo Alto Labs) or for well-established "startups". Very rarely do I see a startup with a SecOps or security engineer.

How do companies get around having (what I consider to be) a necessary employee for a company of almost any size, especially when you're building your own networks and housing your own infrastructure?


Hey Vishal, that's amazing to hear! Data scientist is a role we've been pondering, if you are up for it, we'd still love to hear from you :-)


Hey Joel! Quick question; are your engineering guys office based or do they work remotely? I've been following you guys for a while but I'm pretty firmly rooted in Warwickshire!


We're fully distributed, that includes all engineers too :-) Colin is based in Cambridge. Firmly rooted in Warwickshire is no problem! I went to Warwick University by the way :-)


That's great to know! Once my current project is over, I think I'll drop you/Sunil my resume.

Hah, I thought the mention of Warwickshire would catch your eye. Would be great to join a homegrown tech company.

All the best.


What are some of the tools that you use to support this async culture in different time zones?

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

Scribd ("Netflix for eBooks", top 100 website, 50 people) is hiring talented hackers of all kinds to help us build the library of the 21st century.

We've hired SEVEN full-time people and TONS of interns from these "Who is Hiring" threads ... it really works!

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

* Ruby on Rails (we're the #2 largest rails site, after Twitter)

* Javascript (well, we use Coffeescript)

* iOS OR Android (we're a top 10 eBook app, with a tiny mobile team)

* Machine Learning / data mining / recommendations - think Netflix prize, but for books!

* Internships: junior standing or above for all areas of engineering. We hire several interns every summer and year-round.

That said, we care way more about your personality and general hacking skills then what languages you've used so far, so if you haven't used these but want to break into mobile or web development, this could be a good opportunity for you. We've hired people from these threads with everywhere from 0 to 10 years of experience.

We're profitable, very well funded and have a really fun office environment (go-karts + a rock climbing wall!). Scribd alumni have gone on to found 4 other YCombinator companies, more than from any other startup. We think this says something about the kind of people that we like to hire, and we love hiring people with entrepreneur and startup ambitions. We are also always looking for international people interested in moving to the US and can help you secure a visa.

We recently launched a service that's being called the "Netflix for books" and are really excited about it. Read more here: http://wrd.cm/1dJquzz

More info is at http://www.scribd.com/jobs, but as a HN user, feel free to apply directly by emailing me at jared at scribd.com.


Rainforest QA (YC '12), San Francisco - H1B, FULL-TIME, REMOTE and INTERN are all welcome. Full-stack and front-end hackers.

Hi HN! We're a small (6 person) startup working on making every developer happier and more productive. We're doing that by building a beautiful, simple way to do QA. Yeah, that's right. Sounds impossible doesn't it? We like those kind of challenges :)

some more information:

We play Ultimate or Soccer on Fridays, we have a company band, we work sane hours, we don't track vacation (and not in the 'so nobody ever takes any' sense), and we Get Stuff Done. You'll learn a lot from working here, regardless of your current level of experience. You'll work directly with a world-class data science team (winners of multiple KDD Best Paper and other awards) that keeps us on the cutting edge of learning at scale, allowing us to build customer-specific models from billions of events per day. We're hooked up to all the big ad exchanges, and have direct working relationships with companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter, and more. But we're also still pretty small on the engineering team, and everyone gets their hands dirty and makes a real impact. We write mostly Java. Hadoop, Cassandra, Mongo, and Kafka are big parts of our stack, and we're always looking for new tech that helps us work at scale. Experience with these is a big plus, but if you've never used them before that's fine too, if you're eager to learn. If you write clean, working code, think through problems, and deliver on time, we want to talk to you. Contact me for more info, taejin@dstillery.com


We play Ultimate or Soccer on Fridays,

On Fridays I like to find a quiet bar, and read papers on distributed systems. Guess I won't be a "culture fit".


It's good to know that you play Ultimate or Soccer on Fridays, but a more relevant information would be your location and/or if you accept remote applicants.


Sorry about that! We're in New York, and currently we're not hiring remote but we will help the right candidate relocate.


System 76 - Denver, CO

Full Time Front End Web Developer

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

You see the world in HTML DOM elements. You love diving into the latest and greatest CSS frameworks. When you’ve written a particularly elegant piece of Javascript, it feels like all is right in the world. You shudder at the thought of websites before responsive design. If someone shows you an API, you instantly see a powerful user interface taking shape. You understand the stack of the web; getting your hands dirty with LAMP isn’t a show stopper to launching a product. You gave up Dreamweaver in 1997 because nothing ever looked as good as your bare code.

Required Skills & Experience

Smart, motivated, and disciplined person who takes pride in their work.

HTML5 / CSS3 expert; you know what to use and when for proper document markup.

Javascript and jQuery expert; you write beautiful, concise, and manageable front end code.

Know the difference between good and bad cross-browser compatibility (you’re a feature tester, not a version sniffer).

Love technical challenges and advanced UI features. Seeing a unique, yet functional page design with interesting challenges excites you.

The Perfect Candidate:

Regular and comfortable user of version control ( Git a big plus ).

Pathgather - New York, NY

We're a Techstars NYC startup with a simple mission: to make the world's knowledge universally transparent and accessible. We're starting this mission by targeting the enterprise, disrupting the fairly outdated enterprise education and training space, an industry that has over 60% of its customers dissatisfied with current products!

We've seen significant progress within our first year of business. We signed a Fortune 200, 30,000+ employee company to a six figure contract within our first months and successfully launched to that company a little over a month ago. They now have over 20% of their workforce using Pathgather.

Our product is built on top of a modern stack using best practices: an Angular client that communicates with a Rails 4 API, powered by Postgres, Redis, and Elasticsearch. We also have a strong focus on product and design (take a look at our product, and we think you'll agree). Traditionally, enterprise software has lacked in these areas, but we aim to disrupt that tradition.

If you're at all interested or curious in exploring an opportunity with us, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at jamie@pathgather.com. We guarantee an amazing opportunity awaits: we'll offer significant salary and equity, the chance to work on real problems experienced by a wide audience, opportunities for open source work and contributions, and influence in our product, culture, and vision from day one!

Close - We're a tiny startup hiring in San Francisco.

We're analyzing professional networks to help folks make the most of who they know. If you've ever tried to answer the question "Who do I know that's..." (looking for engineers, investing in my kind of company, interested in partnerships, able to get me featured on Google Play, etc) -- that's what we're about.

It's a huge, nutty data problem -- our professional networks aren't perfectly manicured, exemplary LinkedIn accounts, but disparate and scattered across multiple platforms. Plus there's the task of really trying to understand who everyone is, and figuring out a product perspective that avoids spam and creepiness while genuinely building relationships and value for both sides.

We recently closed a seed round and we're looking for a Python data engineer and a Rails developer. If you're interested in a rolling up your sleeves at a really early-stage startup (with funding!), we'd love to hear from you.

On the data side, ideally you have some experience with using Python for data analysis, scaling data tools, API integrations, machine learning/natural language processing, and ontologies. For Rails, we're looking for an experienced engineer who can own our Rails stack and lead integrations with our data backend.

If you'd like to learn more, please get in touch. I'm jennie at close.co, and I'm the data engineer you'd be working directly with in either role. :)

iOS/Android developer – London – Skin Analytics

Skin Analytics is looking for an app developer. You'll be designing and building iOS and Android apps for a new project we are launching in partnership with a global brand. You'll be working with our CTO and research team to build cutting-edge change detection algorithms into the app, with a focus on usability. You have the chance to develop an app that will be in the hands of millions of people, making a real difference to their skin health and their life every day. As we're a young startup, you'll have the chance to help shape our growing company too.

We're looking for someone who's had experience building great iOS/Android apps, with experience across both platforms if possible. Experience with OpenCV or working with the cameras on devices is a big plus.

Skin Analytics is a startup, currently based in the Wayra academy. We've developed patent-pending change detection algorithms for skin features. Our first product uses these to catch changing moles early, helping people with melanoma skin cancer get the treatment they need sooner.

We're now working on using this technology in other ways, and will soon be launching products targeting other skin conditions in partnership with two global brands.

Wingspan Technology - Philadelphia Suburbs (Blue Bell), Full Time

We have several open engineering positions, each with a different focus: Javascript client (React + Scala + Postgres), Database Administrator (Postgres/Solr), and a dev ops engineer. Email gsieling@wingspan.com if interested in any of these.


We have a diverse mix already, including a few startup veterans, conferences and meetup presenters, and even some game developers. We used AJAX before it was called AJAX. The engineering “managers” aren’t really managers – they’re the ones who architected the products and lead their maintenance. Engineers in charge means no red tape or other silly productivity barriers like at larger companies.

While all of our engineers contribute across the stack, many draw assignments with a particular focus. As a Software Engineer (Client Focused), you would be a principal contributor in developing our next-generation eTMF product. The eTMF client is a classic web 2.0 “single page” application utilizing the current best of breed JavaScript libraries.

Wingspan values fundamentals and ability to learn over current knowledge, but candidates with knowledge and experience relevant to our current technology stack have an obvious advantage over those without.

    You are awesome with JavaScript & CSS.
    You are excited about new web technologies like ES6.
    You sweat the small stuff, but know when to just ship it.
    You have an eye for good design, but aren't necessarily a designer.

    You care deeply about the user experience.
We're an Ember.js shop and it would be great if you already have lots of Ember experience, but we aren’t focused on specific keywords. We are looking for evidence that you're smart, adaptable, and exceptionally productive.

We work 40-hour weeks, live a sustainable lifestyle, and enjoy what we do. We love open source and have contributed to several projects including our own. On the backend we use node.js, koa, and RethinkDB. On the frontend it’s all Ember.js, Handlebars, and SCSS.

Interpreter Intelligence - http://www.interpreterintelligence.com - San Francisco, CA

We’re a group a guys primarily based in San Francisco (although remote is a possibility) who believe in the ability of a small group of driven people to improve the everyday problems of those outside the tech sector. Our focus is on the interpretation vertical: we provide a SaaS product for scheduling, hr, and financials for that sector. There’s TONS of interesting problems, and our customers love us!

We’re looking for our first full time engineering hire. As mentioned: if you’re in SF, great, but also let us know if you’re interested in a remote job.

* We’re a tiny team, so you’ll need to be at least comfortable with the full stack. It also means you'll have a huge amount of influence on how things are done.

* Front-end expertise is critical: we have more code in our backbone.js layer than anywhere else, and so you should not only be an expert in javascript, but also know how to manage complex dependencies.

* Knowledge of a modern MVC framework. We use grails, but those skills are quite transferable. Java and Hibernate knowledge is a bonus.

* AWS and Elasticsearch knowledge would be awesome.

We have tons of interesting problems ahead of us, from implementing beautiful realtime dashboards to crunchy machine learning/discrete optimization tasks.

Drop me a note at david@interpreterintelligence.com if you’re interested or have any questions.

Our company culture is very open, flat, and transparent. We succeed and learn together. Our office is very comfortable, has a lot of natural light, and great amenities like a gym and walking trails onsite. We’ve tried hard to make this a pleasant and inspiring place to do creative work.

London, UK — Fountain Digital Labs (http://www.fountain-digital.com) — All-round backend developer

We're a well-funded 1.5 year old startup working on the delivery of live video streams from our own cameras around the globe into an iPad app for children. We're currently rolling out our first two installations — in Dubai and in Moscow. And we just grew to ten people.

Both the client part (iOS) and the video processing backend (Python/ffmpeg) are being actively developed in-house. We're currently looking for a Python developer, full-time in London. Our office is at TechHub (207 Old Street), in the heart of the Silicon Roundabout, but we'll be moving to the new office in the same area very soon.

The usual job description blurb is at our landing page at http://www.fountain-digital.com. I want to add that it's a great opportunity for a backend developer to get involved in a very serious wide-scale project. We're not in the business of making websites or Facebook apps, our video cloud routinely loads tens of large Amazon EC2 instances — and grows automatically as you add new video streams. We're really doing interesting work here.

If you've never done Python in production, but love distributed systems, programming at scale and are a strong all-rounder — feel free to apply anyway. We love working with smart and hardworking people.

If you want to ask anything about the product, technology, or anything else, drop me a line (I'm the CTO). My email is in the profile.

No recruiters please.

- "Full Stack" engineer ~ the engineering team so far is made up of experienced, focused individuals comfortable on all parts of the system. We'd love to add another Sr. level full stack type who can hit the ground running & add to our overall product-shipping speed while helping us grow our culture.

We use node.js, python, postgres, elastic search, and nsq currently but are happy to have more tools in our toolbox if they solve the problem. We're a close knit, easy to get along with team and all really excited about Reonomy!

I'm actually located remote and have worked this way for about 9 months, but I'm so stoked about how things are going I'm moving with my family from ATX to NYC next month to be closer to the action.

Periscope -- San Francisco -- User Experience Designer

Periscope is a data analysis tool that uses pre-emptive in-memory caching and statistical sampling to run data analyses really, really fast.

The slick UI and impressive backend speed sell the product, but the most important feature is the way the user experience encourages sharing and collaboration on charts and dashboards. Periscope spreads data throughout an organization, eventually instigating a culture change that makes the company more data-driven.

One customer recently said of Periscope: "It moved our data out of a closet and into a storefront."

We're hiring our first user experience designer, who will own this experience.

About You

   - You love the way that great user experience design enables users and makes them feel powerful within the product.
   - You have great respect for how the little details impact user behavior and happiness.
   - You understand that execution speed is a feature, and are comfortable with tradeoffs and making calls on the fly.
   - You have a demonstrated track record of shipping designs in modern web or mobile apps.

About Us

   - We're a team of 4 ex-Google and Microsoft PMs and engineers with venture funding, paying customers, and a spacious loft apartment in SF to work out of.
   - We consider our design that enables frictionless sharing and collaboration to be our most important feature.
   - We strongly favor rapid shipping over endless review and iteration.
   - We have close relationships with our customers. We see customers several times a month, and email with them several times a week.

FortyTwo — Mountain View, CA — Frontend / mobile / backend (H1B okay, read below)

Hi all, I'm Andrew from FortyTwo. We're a well-funded Series A startup (~10 engineers) in Mountain View building https://www.kifi.com/. It's a lot more than a bookmarking service: we're building a search engine and content discovery system that blows away what's out there by letting you organize everything super easily, while not asking you to change your searching habits. We have a product that we love, and have lots to do still.

Right now, we're looking hard for:

• Frontend - we're building a cross-browser browser extension and a site using AngularJS. Ideal candidate is very comfortable with JavaScript, at least one backend (non-JS) language, and has used a thick-client MV* style framework. Full description is here: http://www.42go.com/frontend.html

• Mobile - we're building a soon-to-be-released iOS client as well as starting an Android client. Ideal candidate has experience releasing consumer mobile products, and has strong engineering skills to make an efficient and pleasant to use app. More here: http://www.42go.com/join_us.html#mobile

• Backend / Full stack - we use Scala, Play!, and Akka to build a highly-available, reactive backend to serve our clients. Ideal candidate has experience on the JVM, functional programming, and continuous deployment. More here: http://www.42go.com/join_us.html#backend

We blog at http://eng.42go.com, so check out some of the stuff we're working on. We're okay to sponsor H1Bs, but prefer Bay Area candidates already so we can move faster. To apply, email towel@42go.com with your resume/github/LinkedIn.


Kifi looks cool - the Chrome extension image link is broken on /install btw.


Whoops. Thanks, fixing.

Mutually Human - Grand Rapids, Michigan



We are a small team passionate about making people's lives better through software. We're currently looking for full-time software developers and designers.

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 don't artificially limit ourselves.
    Recently, I've worked with Objective-C, Backbone.js (inside PhoneGap),
    Angular.js, QT and of course Ruby.

  - 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, quarterly profit
    sharing, retirement + match, weekly catered lunches, and a top-floor office
    with snacks, guitars, and your choice of standing or sitting desks.

  - We run a makerspace in our building (http://grmakers.com), which gives us
    access to lots of cool tools and machines.
A little bit about Grand Rapids:

  - 2.5 hours from Chicago and Detroit, 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

  - If you’re renting anything larger than a breadbox in the Bay Area or NYC,
    you can afford a house here. I bought a nice house with a mortgage payment
    30% lower than the rent of my 1 bedroom apartment in Mountain View.

  - A growing technology and startup community.
A little bit about you:

  - You love making 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.
I'm a software craftsman on this awesome team. If you're interested, get in touch with me:

San Francisco - Heyday - http://hey.co

We are building a lifelog for people to remember and share the story of their lives, automatically, beautifully, and privately. Two months ago, we launched here on Hacker News [ https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=6858373 ]. Here's what some of you guys said:

- "Wow. I rarely download this stuff. But the fact that it claims to be automatic piqued my interest. After downloading it I can say that my first impression is shocked. Shocked that I really liked it."

- "This is very well done. This could crush Facebook. Not in the short term but if you create a timeline that is more personally valuable to people they will be far more likely to use it and share it with friends and family. Your timeline is already far more interesting then my "Wall."

- "Why is it free? I would've paid for this."

- "I have been looking for this. I've been so desperate for this I've been contemplating creating it myself."

We're looking for:

* Mobile engineers (iOS - hard problems include making our sync engine fast/reliable, fast/intuitive search for memories, surfacing important memories in the background, UI performance, and doing it all without using a lot of battery)

* Systems engineers (Python, AWS, Puppet/Chef - hard problems include delivering accurate geocoding for memories, reliable syncing, and building systems to monitor and scale all of it automatically)

* Data scientists (R/Matlab/SPSS, Python, SQL, statistics, machine learning - hard problems include using ML to improve accuracy of geocoding, building growth and retention models, all while guaranteeing user anonymity and privacy).

Thread.com - London, United Kingdom

Thread (https://www.thread.com) is looking for exceptional full-stack software engineers who love product.

We're reinventing retail in the UK (and soon, worldwide) so guys can dress well without being subjected to the horrors of high street shopping or having to trawl through millions of items online.

We do this by using a clever combination of algorithms and human stylists to give guys the perfect selection of things that will look amazing on them. Our goal is to create the new global default for how men buy clothes. We're live, have lots of customers who are obsessive about the product, and revenues are growing very quickly.

You won't merely be handed specs: you'll be in charge of taking ideas from the whiteboard all the way through to them being live, tracking the results, and iterating to make them better. For this reason, this role is only suitable for someone who likes being closely involved in product — what to build and how it will work, as much as the technical implementation itself.

You'll work everyday with an awesome technology stack consisting of Python, Django, Git, Debian, Redis, jQuery, Jenkins, Postgresql, Gunicorn and many other things.

If this seems like you, there's more information here: https://www.thread.com/jobs or email me at <ben at thread.com>

REMOTE, whereever

DataStax makes the enterprise edition of Cassandra, the NoSQL db for serious applications. We have developers all over the world and a 100% remote working environment. Some of the development is open source (we are the primary contributors to Cassandra core, which is an Apache Foundation project...)

I just joined recently; as a senior developer with startup experience, I had lots of offers from various companies. The reasons I chose DataStax were:

- 100% remote means I can work from whereever I want (I like to travel) and whenever, within reason, as long as I get my stuff done - the opportunity to work on interesting new technology that is rapidly changing and being adopted by a lot of Fortune 100, etc - they have been vocal about their plans to IPO in the next few years and are growing like crazy

Very competitive salary, lots of open positions: Java, Python, JavaScript, I've even seen some Clojure. Also, SDET and technical writing.

Luminoso is a growing team of 20, looking to attract a back-end developer to help us attack the problems of natural language processing on a large scale.

Our company emerged from research at the MIT Media Lab about representing common sense knowledge in a way that can be aligned with natural-language text. This research produced ConceptNet, the open-source knowledge base that underlies our work at Luminoso.

Our NLP technology is being used by some high-profile customers and is in demand by even more. As we work with ever increasing amounts of data, we particularly need someone with the expertise to design the right ways to handle all that data with high availability, whether the data arrives in batches or in live streams.

We develop our stack on Linux using Python. Experience with any of the following is a bonus: NLTK, NumPy/SciPy, PyTables, scikit-learn, Python 3, Redis, and Riak.


This position will become a member of a nine-person development team, working closely with the front-end developers and the operations team. We particularly seek individuals with sharp and tenacious troubleshooting capability. Strong communication skills and willingness to take initiative are also desired. Luminoso is an equal opportunity employer, and an excellent place to work.

London, UK - Board Intelligence hiring Rails and Javascipt (ideally Angular.js) developers. Remote a possibility.


Our goal is to improve decision-making at the boards of the world's largest companies.

Most corporate boards are run ineffectively. Think how effective they could be, and think how much that could improve the ways companies are run. (Not just in terms of profitability, but also in terms of ethics and long-term value).

BI has a successful consulting business and now aims to become a high-growth tech business. Our app is used by CEOs and directors of some of the UK's largest companies, and we're now expanding internationally.

Culture: despite our corporate target market, we're a young, small team (~15 people, 4 on the tech team, most employees in their 20s). Many of the non-tech team members have an interest in visual design or data visualisation, so there's a strong product focus. Oh, and if you enjoyed Kahneman's Thinking Fast and Slow, you'd probably fit right in. (About half the team has read it and it ties in closely with our work).

Shutterstock: http://www.shutterstock.com/jobs.mhtml

A public, profitable company that is very engineering friendly. I'm a software developer inside the company.

A variety of positions are open across a variety of languages: Node.js, Ruby (Sinatra and Rails), Perl, PHP, Java, as well as non-developer roles (DB Admin, etc.)

The job positions don't state it, but I was hired into a position as a remote/WFH worker, so I would imagine that the possibility is open to other people as well. The company also has offices in a variety of locations if being remote is not for you: New York NY, San Francisco CA, Denver CO, Berlin, Paris, London, etc.. If you work near the mothership, we have a pretty swank office space: http://www.shutterstock.com/blog/look-inside-shutterstocks-n...

I'm not sure if I'd get a referral bonus for this, but tell them that I sent you.

Re: Product Owner, Search (http://www.shutterstock.com/jobs.mhtml?jvi=orBnWfw5,Job)

I'm a (fairly recent) Shutterstock contributor and think search could be much improved, especially across languages.

I tried to communicate with SS on this subject, explaining the problem and stating that I had some experience with Lucene and SOLR.

The person I exchanged with ("Manager Contributor Success") was very nice, but we never really had an actual conversation about how search actually works; it seemed all he really wanted to do was convince me that all was for the best and if not, that it would eventually be.

Wouldn't it be nice if there was some kind of technical forums where contributors/customers and SS developers could really interact, from a technical point of view? If managed well, such a network could provide great value for SS, at probably very little cost ;-)


I'm interested in a job at Shutterstock, but the link you provided leads to a broken page. Any idea where I can access the job listings?

Chicago’s a great place and we’re one of the few real software startups in town. That is, our business is software. We write code to enable our customers' businesses and then they pay us for it. There’s nothing more gratifying for an engineer than to see her work used and loved.

Don’t try to game them because we’ll help them notice that too. We’re building useful tools to help organizations respond weekly to 10s of millions of these authentic social interactions.

We take the best storytelling elements of adventure / role playing games but make the gameplay accessible, free-to-play and fun for those who don’t have 8 hour blocks of time to hack and slash through dungeons.

* Senior Gameplay Developer: http://bit.ly/1jVK24k

  * Incredibly modern stack: written entirely in Clojure/ClojureScript/Om/React
  * Released the first reference Om app (https://github.com/sgrove/omchaya)
  * Given presentations on how we see app development trending http://sgrove.github.io/omchaya/docs/presentation.html (hint: It's about to get much, much better, and referentially-transparent UI's and serializable state play a big part)
  * We've vastly improved the source-map capabilities of the ClojureScript compiler
  * Reified keywords to the runtime to make ClojureScript a better citizen on the web
We do all of this for two reasons: 1.) We want to build apps that customers love in the best way possible, and that often means taking the time to explore proper approaches. With the right team and stack, we run circles around others, and 2.) because we want to give back to the communities that have enabled us. We're looking for an engineer who loves the craft, who cares about building product, and is excited about helping customers.

Interested in working with Reactjs, Om, and functional programming in the client? We're building a team that's able to reduce complexity others balk at into simple, easy to reason about system, so we can continue to move quickly and delight both customers and ourselves. This is fullstack work.

Languages: Clojure, Clojurescript, Javascript. sean @ zenboxapp https://www.zenboxapp.com Also, come meet us at the SF ClojureScript meetup! http://www.meetup.com/SF-Clojurescript-Meetup/

P.S. Didn't quite make it in this month, but we should have some very cool ideas exploring the edges of composable UI's soon to share with the HN community.


I've been getting in to Clojure lately as a hobby and I'd love to work with you and see how you evolve your application, but alas I'm pursuing my masters currently :(

Can you please do some write-ups as you go along of how you're building your application with the above stack, what tools you're using, challenges, etc?

edit: also where do you see yourself going in light of web components?


The choice between a masters and working in Clojure is a fantastic one to have! I certainly wouldn't use the word 'alas'.

We've given talks on some stuff we believe is cutting-edge in UI work not just for the browser (though certainly light years ahead for it), but also for the desktop. A lot of the pieces are starting to just fall out from good design decisions made by others.

For example, we've talked about being able to effortlessly capture recordings of user-behavior and use them for instant repro-cases (goodbye exceptional stacktraces of 'undefined is undefined'!) or for prediction-testing ("Did anything we changed with this release we're about to push break a replay from the last 10,000 sessions on our site?"), to truly-reusable components and tooling-amenable systems. We need to get around to blogging about it, certainly.

Web components are going to be a nice boon for an underlying substrate, but the spec is still in flux, and we'll see what actually ends up happening. But the uncontrolled state mutations (and quite a few other things) means that it's not the right level for most of us to be working at.

Definitely some exciting stuff happening on the front-end right now, we really have the chance to push things forward for thousands of developers.

Connexity (online advertising) - Los Angeles area, Camarillo, CA

As a division of Shopzilla, we help advertisers reach their audience with less money. We help publishers make more money by better selling their audience. Everybody wins.

We're looking to add a talented, highly motivated DevOps engineer.

You'll coordinate the test and release of code developed by company engineers at remote locations while working co-located with the core team of system developers.

Ruby/Rails. NYC or REMOTE. Full-time.

Hi! We're Fractured Atlas, a national non-profit that supports artists and the arts. We have several technical projects going on like Artful.ly and NYCPASpaces.

We're big on open source but looking to get bigger: github.com/fracturedatlas.

The non-profit is based in Manhattan but our dev team is almost entirely remote. We'd prefer you be on the East Coast (DC-Boston) but as long as you don't mind to travel then you can work from wherever. We try to rope the whole dev team together twice a year.

We need a senior Ruby/Rails guy right now and we'll be needed some more junior people over the course of this year. Most of our work is primarily in Rails but we have an iOS app, a PHP app, and we'r ere-engineering a lot of infrastructure so some of that stuff is open to discussion. I am particularly excited by Go.

Get in touch at gary.moore@fracturedatlas.org and say you heard about us on the HN news thread.



Sheffield or remote (UK) - Delver (http://delver.io)

NLP experience (academic or practical) would be great, but a CS background is a must. If you've been exposed to data warehousing and business intelligence systems in the past without being driven insane that's another plus.

Our team of four is based in Sheffield, Yorkshire - the greenest city in the UK, less than two hours from London. We have burritos - it's a real place - but we spend some time working remotely and we'd work to accommodate the right candidate anywhere in the UK.

Segment.io - San Francisco, CA

Mobile Engineer

We're looking for an extremely good mobile engineer to help us change the way people approach mobile analytics. This is a perfect position for someone who loves building clean APIs for others to use. You enjoy not only building mobile apps, but writing the libraries that power those apps. You're fluent in everything to do with iOS as a platform, and if you have Android chops that's a huge bonus, but definitely not a requirement.

You'd be working on current and new features of the mobile SDKs themselves, as well as helping to write code for where they touch our Node.js backend, where we process tens of millions of events per day. And you'd be in charge of our entire mobile offering, which is used in product by lots of big companies like Live Nation, Nest Labs and The Knot.

You'd be joining a team of very talented engineers that are in love with open-source. Both of those SDKs are open-source, as is tons of our codebase[1]. So if you enjoy working with smart people and getting to make a name for yourself releasing the things you work on to other developers, you've found the right place.

Not only that, but you'd be working on a few of our still-secret mobile projects that we're pretty confident are going to change the way people integrate third party code into every mobile app they write afterwards.

[1]: https://github.com/segmentio


To apply, email us at jobs@segment.io with:

    1. a description of an app you've worked on (code is a bonus)

Khaaaaan! Academy — Mountain View, CA (we also love interns, and remote is a possibility)

We're a small, non-profit tech startup trying to give a free, world-class education to anyone, anywhere.

Here's a testimonial we received this week:


Two year ago, I would never have imagined that any 13-year-old could be in Calculus BC. Today, I am 13 and wrapping up my second semester of it, and with an A+, too, thanks largely in part to this site. Sal, I would say you are the best teacher I ever had. Teachers in school just don't seem to have the time or, in some cases, even the knowledge to pay as much attention as you do to the actual intuition of the material being taught. How am I supposed to understand a theorem if I don't know where it came from, why it works, or even what it really means? Khan Academy also seems to explain everything in a very easy to understand, and even fun, manor. You make calculus almost as easy as simple arithmetic. Anyway, thank you very much.


Every month we get hundreds of letters like this from people in all walks of life who're thankful for our free, high-quality educational content.

Most of you reading this are familiar with Sal's videos, but we also have hundreds of videos by other teachers, partnerships with organizations like MoMA and the California Academy of Sciences, and a huge library of interactive exercises. Over 20 million math problems are done every week on our site.

And now we're doing a big mobile push. Around 20% of our traffic comes from phones and tablets. We're totally overhauling our iOS app and we now need a great mobile designer. (We've got some good leads for good devs already, but if you're a dev please do apply too.)

We need a great mobile designer, one who lives and breathes mobile and really understands what works and what doesn't. If you join us now, you can be a major influence on an app that is guaranteed to have millions of users. We have loads of high-quality educational content just waiting to be shared within a great product. We have partnerships lined up around the block to promote your work. We just need you.

You'll be part of a small team working alongside both "celebrity" devs (like jQuery creator John Resig and Google's first employee Craig Silverstein) and many more who you haven't heard of but who are also really awesome.

Apply at https://www.khanacademy.org/careers and be sure to mention that you're coming from HN. Feel free to email me at alpert+HN@khanacademy.org if you have questions about applying or about KA in general. Unfortunately we can't sponsor visas right now unless you're from Canada, Australia, or Mexico.


I'm another dev at KA.

Just wanted to chime in that we're also hiring general (not just mobile) devs, data scientist-engineers, general product designers, and interns in all of the above categories!


Hi! I applied to Khan Academy for an internship and was denied.

My question is, what do you look for in an intern applicant? (I thought my application was solid with 10 years of experience in all sorts of programming)


Hi, do you accept H1 Transfer??

San Francisco - Thumbtack (H1B ok!)

Thumbtack is a Sequoia-backed startup that is changing the way people hire local service professionals like house painters, guitar tutors, or wedding planners.

We like Python. :-)



Email me (chris@) if you're interested, or if you'd just like to grab a coffee in SF.

(to pre-empt a common question: we don't have any internships available right now, please check back in September!)


Hi! We’re Red Hot Labs from San Francisco and we're looking for a FULL-TIME DEV (authorized already to work in the US, no remote, no interns, thanks!)

We're on a mission to revolutionize how mobile developers harness their data. Our product, still in beta, functions as the central hub for all the services mobile developers already use. By weaving together the data from these disparate services, we gain a comprehensive view of the app and are uniquely positioned to deliver insights and value back to the developer.

This isn't our first trip around the block. Our previous startup was acquired by Zynga and our core technology turned into FarmVille and the rest of Zynga’s most successful games. It was a wild ride and now we’re full steam ahead on a new adventure. We're well backed by folks such as A16Z, Greylock, SVAngel, DCVC, and more.

We're looking for passionate, energetic, highly talented engineers to join our team. By becoming a foundational member of our team you will help shape the direction of our product, company and culture. We’re believe in constantly challenging ourselves to learn new things and would love to teach you what we know and learn from you as well.

We want all engineering members of the team to be full-stack engineers and well-rounded individuals. But, we're especially excited about the following engineering profile:


  Senior Systems Engineer: You've architected and scaled backend systems to 
  millions of users.  You've put out every kind of fire and learned a lot in the 
  process. You understand the tradeoffs of different data stores, server 
  architectures, and low-level services. 


  - Redis, MySQL, Rails for our backend API.
  - Mostly AWS with a little bit of Heroku for our hosting.
  - AngularJS, jQuery, Underscore, Node.JS with D3 for our dashboard and web apps.
  - 3rd party services: Facebook, Mixpanel, Stripe, Mailgun

Do any of the above profiles sound like you? Send us an email at: jobs@redhotlabs.com

Or, learn a little more about us here: http://www.redhotlabs.com/jobs


Docker inc - http://www.docker.com/jobs/ - San Francisco, CA

Software Engineer, Infrastructure Engineer, Web Designer At Docker Inc, we believe that containerization will soon become the next big thing, the next tool which will be part of every developer and sysadmin toolbox. What's "containerization"? The name comes the LXC technology (Linux Containers), and the technique is also known as "Lightweight Virtualization".

That's why we launched Docker (http://www.docker.io/), an Open Source tool enabling anyone to run those Linux Containers very easily. Containers boot 1000x faster than virtual machines; their disk and memory footprint are also much lower; and they work on virtually all current platforms (from physical servers to public cloud instances). We think that they are the future of virtualization, and will soon become ubiquitous.

Convinced? Then fork the repo on github (https://github.com/dotcloud/docker) and have a look at the code. Not convinced? Then check the website (http://www.docker.io/), which contains more details, demos, and screencasts. Excited about this? Then join our engineering team!

Your responsibilities will include:

- being a contributor to the Docker project, which means contributing patches, and reviewing and merging pull requests from the community;

- working on some server-side applications; participate in product discussions, influence the roadmap, and take ownership and responsibility over new projects to make them happen.

You can qualify if you...:

- can read and write Go code (because docker itself is in Go);

- can read and write Python code (because many tools and services built around Docker are in Python);

- are familiar with network protocols: the lower layers like IP, TCP, and UDP; and the higher layers like HTTP;

- have experience in scaling large applications;

- believe that writing unit and functional tests is important.

hopTo Inc., Campbell, California (http://hopto.com/careers)

I'm a team lead at hopTo, and we're currently hiring mobile developers and people with a Windows background. The latter is my team, and if you're someone who's bored with his/her current enterprise-level job coding for the Microsoft stack and want something more challenging, I'd love to talk with you.

Our product involves some low-level hackery in C++/C# on the Windows side, stuff like coding messages ourselves and feeding them to window handles, custom drivers, and other bits. We need people who have a solid background with Windows architecture (MFC, Windows Forms, etc) and the drive to learn the rest. If you're looking to move up from a standard .Net job, this is a way to do it.

In return, we offer solid salaries and stock shares (we're a public company!), a flat hierarchy with a great team, four weeks off, and very competitive games of FIFA on our XBox. Additionally, we hate overtime. I've never once been asked to stay late and crunch, though my work is fun enough that I'll sometimes hack on the weekends anyway.

If you're interested, please email a resume to andrew at hopto.com, along with a link to something you've built (either a web site, or a Github repo, or whatever).

Plus, the FEDs will love you.

Boston, MA

A little about us - we're called “Change Collective” and are a Boston startup. We are building a course platform that helps people make changes that matter with the help of world-class experts. Our goal is to transform the way people change. We're backed by the best investors in Boston, and already count among our experts a NY Times best-selling author.

About you - you are a software engineer, programmer, architect, coder, or some or all of the above. Ultimately you, and the rest of the team around you, will love to learn, improve, refine and grow as a craftsman and professionals. You will get paid competitively. You will receive some equity in a young (funded) company. You will write a lot of Ruby, Javascript, markup and some Sass. You love Git, Github, Heroku, Trello (as much as one can love organizational tools), code reviews, occasional pair programming and open source. Although our stack does not currently include the following, there is a strong chance we will experiment with technologies like Ember.js, Angular, GoLang, Node, or the right tool for the job. We know for sure that there will plenty of native app development for iOS, Android and interaction with wearable devices. Right now we're quickly becoming enamored with Rubymotion. We almost pass the Joel Spolsky test - nobody's perfect (#7 needs some work). And we're firm believers in working smart, sustainable, hours.

This would be a job local to Boston for now (near South Station / Chinatown) as we're a small team in a very collaborative environment.

If you like bullet points:

You are confident, comfortable and enjoy writing ruby, javascript, html and css You practice test driven development You are process driven, but not dogmatic Required - you possess a healthy urge to get better, and help others get better, at their craft Not required (but won't be held against you) - a university degree We provide a competitive salary, equity and freedom to use the tools (hardware and software) that you consider best for your work. We're building a company that will live and breathe change and offer excellent opportunities for you to improve personally and professionally.

If you often wake up with an intense desire to improve your life and the lives of others, and regularly act on it — that's our mission — email us (ben@changecollective.com and joel@changecollective.com) and say "hello".

Climate's technical staff numbers around 80, and we're hiring full-time employees across many teams as we expand efforts on a new class of decision support tools for growers.

Our goal is to forecast statistical distributions of crop yield for any piece of arable land, synthesizing satellite images, digital elevation models, weather data, agricultural statistics, and geological surveys into multi-scale models that underly our data services.

3. Experienced technical team leads, operations engineers, product managers, and designers to pull all this together into a compelling product.

The scale and interdisciplinary nature of the work drive a lot of cross-collaboration within the company, supported by a pressing need to build durable solutions to some very important problems.

Back-end web developer - New York City - PersonalGenomes.org 501(c)(3) / Open Humans (http://openhumans.org)

As the Senior Software Engineer at PersonalGenomes.org you will work on the Open Humans Network, a project that aims to help people aggregate and share their health and trait data to advance scientific, educational and humanitarian causes. Our model for this initiative is the work we’ve done on the Harvard Personal Genome Project (PGP), which has over 3,000 volunteers publicly sharing extensive biological and trait data, including hundreds of whole genomes, exomes, and genotyping data sets, over 1,000 health records, microbiome datasets from various bodily habitats, device data, brain imaging, etc. This combination of a highly informed and engaged community of volunteers and their contributions of extremely rich biological and health data, along with a network of collaboration-minded researchers, is an incredibly powerful scientific and educational resource that is unrivaled elsewhere. We will build on this momentum with this exciting new initiative that will transform participatory research and advance human health. Our current hiring position is focusing on someone with back-end web development skills, as we have plans to work with a design firm for initial front-end work. Because we plan to develop open source software used by researchers, we believe Python (which many scientists use) is generally preferred.

We're looking for someone who...

-- Is interested in building and managing a full-stack website. As the Senior Software Engineer, your expertise will be an important factor in decisions about what kind of technology is used and how it’s deployed.

-- Has used multiple programming languages to build production systems (e.g. Python, JavaScript, Ruby).

-- Is experienced with back-end web development (e.g. Django or Rails).

-- Is comfortable managing Unix servers, cloud-based services and has opinions about how to store and disseminate large datasets (currently around 50TB total, although we would start with managing <10GB).

-- Works well in a small team of developers and scientists.

-- Loves science, participatory research, and free/open source ideals.

-- Believes in our mission!

About us: PersonalGenomes.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to generate, aggregate and interpret human biological and trait data on an unprecedented scale. PersonalGenome.org's mission is to make a wide spectrum of data about humans accessible to increase biological literacy and improve human health. Its efforts are informed by values encouraging greater transparency and collaboration between researchers and participants. The organization supports the Personal Genome Project (PGP) global network. The first PGP research study was founded at Harvard Medical School in 2005, and PGP sites now exist at leading institutions in four countries. We also produce the annual Genomes, Environments and Traits (GET) Conference. More information is available at http://www.personalgenomes.org

About Open Humans: We have years of practical experience, thousands of participants, and diverse data sets accrued. What we need now is an experienced developer to help us build a site for participants and researchers to manage and publicly share this data. Think of this as a nonprofit startup project!

Read more about Open Humans at http://openhumans.org and apply for the position by contacting us: Jason Bobe (jason@personalgenomes.org) and Madeleine Ball (madeleine@personalgenomes.org)

TechEmpower - Los Angeles area, California (El Segundo, near LAX)

You may recognize us from the Web Framework Benchmarks that have been discussed on HN periodically: http://www.techempower.com/benchmarks/ (We're working on getting Round 9 out as soon as possible--we swear!)

Here's the job:

TechEmpower, a small custom software development firm located in El Segundo, seeks developers with good object-oriented experience, preferably in Java, JavaScript, Python, and/or Ruby. We specialize in web application development but look for well-rounded application developers. If you are a solid programmer and a team player, this is an opportunity for you. Even if you don't have experience with everything listed in this ad, we offer excellent learning opportunities for those who are eager to expand their skill sets. Job Responsibilities

Working in small development teams, programmers participate in the architecture, design, and implementation of primarily Java, JavaScript, Python, C#, Ruby, and PHP code to meet client requirements for robust, high-performance, and secure sites and applications. Developers get exposure to several client projects and a variety of technologies over time. Job Qualifications

In addition to overall programming capability, candidates must have experience working on collaborative development teams and very strong communication skills. While we employ and enjoy the company of extroverts and introverts alike, we reiterate that the ability to communicate clearly is a must-have for our technical staff. That means writing professional e-mails and interpreting the nuances of clients' requirements by asking good questions, for example.

We work hard to estimate projects accurately so that schedules are reasonable and developers work a normal amount of hours per week. We rely on developers to contribute to those estimates and provide feedback as a project goes along to keep things on track.

Ideal candidates will have experience building all facets of software systems including the data model, business logic, and front-end. 3+ years of object-oriented design and development in Java, JavaScript, Python, or Ruby is desired. On the front-end, HTML 5 and CSS experience is required.

Knowledge of some or all of the following specific tools and technologies is a plus:

    Languages: Java, JavaScript, Python, C#, Ruby, PHP
    Tools: Continuous Integration (Jenkins, Hudson, etc.), static code analysis (Sonar, etc.), Eclipse, IntelliJ, Ant, Maven
    Web: vert.x, Play, Spring, Django, Rails, node.js, JSP, Servlets, jQuery, etc.
    Mobile: iOS, Android, PhoneGap, jQuery Mobile or similar
    Hosting: AWS (EC2, RDS, etc.), cloud servers, Linux configuration, application servers (Resin, etc.)
    Data Persistence: ORM (Hibernate, etc.), MySQL, Postgres, MS SQL Server, Oracle, NoSQL (CouchDB, MongoDB, Cassandra, etc.) 
We like technical people who are not afraid to have strong opinions about technology but simultaneously keep an open mind and are flexible enough to work with whatever technology the task at hand requires.

That said, we're mostly looking for great developers who are great to work with. If you don't have experience with everything listed above (and who does?) but are still a solid developer eager to learn new things, you might be a great fit here.

Please apply here: http://jobs.techempower.com/hn


★ Benzinga -- is getting massive amounts of new traffic and we need a Drupal developer, a front end dev, and a Django dev to help us handle all the new visitors either REMOTE or local full-time in Detroit, MI.

   Quick Stats
      ★ Customers include TD Ameritrade, Microsoft, Yahoo
      ★ 20 million+ monthly readers
      ★ 1000s of subscribers to our private Marketfy investor communities
      ★ Accelerated growth rate
We're a financial media company, a poor man's - lest we say everyday man's - Bloomberg competitor, and a financial product SaaS all forged together into a powerful trident that is attacking the high seas of Wall Street in a relentless pursuit of transparency.

And conquer we shall! We've grown 100% quarter over quarter all last year and another 100% just in the last month. Our team has surged to 30+ people and the waves of revenue washed together to form a rushing roar with just one of our products going from nothing to $200k/month in under a year.

Being a media company we find our way into all kinds of cool stuff. Our office is furnished with things like a $3000 high-end bed that was sent to us to review. We got to talk to and get pictures with Warren Buffett and Lloyd Blankfein (CEO of Goldman Sachs) when they came to Detroit.

But, you interject, finance is one of the toughest startup seas to sail upon! The old boys club runs an ironclad ship with no visible decks for boarding. Avast! We've built a battering ram of a business in just a few short years that has pummeled its way deep into the heart of Wall Street. Old Ironsides has warmed itself to Benzinga and once a taste the thirst cannot be quenched.

We've recently became Microsoft's premier finance partner alongside 3 other companies, all worth over a billion dollars and established for years. As of this Christmas we were installed by default on 500 million desktops and tablets via Windows 8 Finance. No download necessary. That's right mateys, we're in the source code.

And if you happen to trade or invest yourself you'll find us inside almost all of the major brokerages in the US.

So, where do you fit in this rigging, you swashbuckling scalawag? Well, our team is crazy ambitious, motivated, and experienced with shaking shit up. If you know your tech, and want on deck this is the place to do it. Your exact technical background and language of choice doesn't matter as much as your motivation and your ability to adapt quickly. We are a young team and we're especially looking for sailors who've got some salt in their whiskers who can help us scale from millions to hundreds of millions.

Why be a ninja when you can be a pirate? This ship is forging a new course, send an email to dev-us@benzinga.com to board!


Normally I don't go too much for the jazzy kind of language in hiring ads, but I enjoyed reading yours, I must say :)

VERBA - San Francisco, CA | INTERN, VISA http://staging.verbasoftware.com/ (we're mid-refresh) | jobs@verbasoftware.com

* Rails/JS Product Focus - FULL-TIME or HALF-TIME with benefits * Analysis/Infrastructure/Performance Focus - HALF-TIME with benefits

Verba believes in challenging the status quo of college textbooks. As it stands, every participant in the market lacks information, and the textbook market is even the basis for the definition of "Broken Market".

By injecting information at precisely the right places, Verba is changing the landscape of higher education affordability: Getting professor book adoptions in faster; Giving recommendations on close-to-market bookstore prices; Helping students compare their bookstore's prices to those of its online competitors; Sourcing cheaper books from online markets; Selling them back to multiple wholesalers and online markets.

We guide every stage of a book's life. We help students save money, and bookstores become and stay relevant, competitive, and transparent.

Numbers: 350 colleges and universities, tracking ~200k unique ISBNs, serving millions of students, raising the "win rate" for bookstores to 80%, and dropping prices across the board. 17 employees, 3 part-time. 2 dogs. 5 cats. 3 children.

Code: Ruby, Rails, JS, Clojure for Hadoop, MySQL on AWS w/ Chef. We love experiments and go with what works! We also love making a stable, solid product which is why we have a ton of metrics and a one-click build pipeline.

What's in it for you: A great team and company culture, benefits (even for part time!), laptop, books, BART pass, pool table, somewhat healthy office snacks, great conversation during our yearly company work-cations, and hard, challenging, fulfilling work.

Message us if: You want to help make education better. You've got strong Rails knowledge, solid testing practices, a good head for architecture, and know enough JS to help out on front-end. A stats background, experience with Hadoop and knowledge of scheduling algorithms would be awesome, but not required.

How to get the job: Write a cover letter to jobs@verbasoftware.com that speaks to why this job might fit with you, and how you could help us out. The first step is a phone screen to solve a small programming problem. Then we'll schedule an on-site interview for a few hours, and have you walk through some of our code with us. Also we'll ask you some historical behavior questions, not logic puzzles. Then we'll make you an offer, and you'll accept and we have a new employee party!

Indiegogo (www.indiegogo.com)—San Francisco, CA

We're a team of engineers, musicians, tri-athletes, designers, activists, filmmakers, and writers, united by a shared passion to empower people across the world to turn their dreams into reality.

Realities like: * Helping the Oatmeal’s Matthew Inman to open a Nikola Tesla Museum: http://igg.me/p/204900/ * Rallying the YouTube community to increase nonprofit awesomeness in the world: http://igg.me/at/p4a2013/ * Building a 13-foot high statue of a T-Rex with Christopher Walken’s head: http://igg.me/p/390984/

Over the last few years, we’ve turned our vision of building the world’s funding platform from the dream a scrappy team of 5 into the reality of a 90-person team and $40 million plus in VC backing. Mo’ money, mo’ problems, eh? Our newfound scale has set us up to succeed as the open crowdfunding platform for the whole world—and scale brings a whole new set of engineering challenges that might interest you.

Do any of these challenges grab your attention? Let us know! * Dev/Ops Engineer (http://www.indiegogo.com/about/careers?jvi=oGtsYfwj,Job): help us build out the infrastructure that’s serving millions of dollars in funds raised each month * Software Engineer, Web (http://www.indiegogo.com/about/careers?jvi=oB0oYfwH,Job): we’re a Rails shop at heart; let’s scale that codebase to support the world * iOS Engineer (http://www.indiegogo.com/about/careers?jvi=oLSGYfw1,Job): help us build our first-gen mobile app!

Our engineering approach: * Tech stack: Ruby on Rails, iOS 7 SDK, Backbone.js, AngularJS, LESS, Elasticsearch, Amazon Redshift, Chef * We’re an agile shop (somewhere between XP and scrum), and our project teams decide their own working standards * We already have one of the most diverse engineering teams in San Francisco, and we’re working to change the tech community as a whole (see http://igg.me/at/LesbiansWhoTech/ and http://igg.me/at/BGCTheRemix/) * We’re language agnostic when we hire—we're open to talking to engineers with strength in Python, PHP, Java, Perl, etc., as long as you enjoy working with RoR and are willing to learn!

Our next year is all about execution—there’s never been a better time to join the team.


Was the Christopher Walken Rex real? looks like a scam. no proof was ever produced that it was actually built. They posted a picture of wood, on a home depot, inside a hardware store. There was no update between the wood picture and completion of the project. They just said it was done and "sorry for the short notice".


It is indeed real. Check it out: http://rhgproductions.blogspot.com/2013/10/the-finished-rex-...

WORK with CEO Richard Price WORK with CTO Ben Lund WORK with 9 Senior Engineers WORK with the mission to make life better

BUILD a killer recommendation engine immersed in Machine Learning and NLP BUILD our next major platform called “Peer Review” from Scratch TACKLE all things related to Scalability, Storage, and Speed VENTURE into mobile

HACK because that’s what you love to do CONTRIBUTE to positive changes OPEN SCIENCE, join ACADEMIA.EDU

We are Hiring a Team to Build a Better Future

Here at Academia.edu you will have an opportunity to join an agile team of 9 Engineers who are all making a positive impact on the world by contributing to a movement called Open Science. As a member of our team you will be given a lot of autonomy to choose projects that interest you the most and the ability to make product decisions with our CTO Ben Lund and CEO Richard Price.

We are currently tackling five incredibly difficult product challenges. Some of these projects have been attempted by larger companies and have failed. In order to be successful we will need to think way outside-of-the-box and take a leap into the unknown…

Peer Review

We want to build a peer review platform that allows layers of discussion on top of a single document. One of the biggest challenges we face is that contextual commenting at a large scale has yet to be achieved. In order to be successful we need to find original and novel solutions because simple approaches like putting a blog-style comment box at the end of the paper has been tried before and has not been effective.

To build Peer Review we must figure out a way to transform all the wide array of styles from any given PDF paper to a clean and consistent format that is embedded for a suitable commenting UI. We are experimenting to build a rich inline-commenting and discussion interface as well as a reputation system that surfaces quality comments.

Interface Design

We currently have 7.5 million users who upload their research papers. Academia converts these PDFs to HTLM5 to display in the browser. We face the challenges of building web UIs for scientific content such as 3D molecular visualizations and tools for exploring genetic sequences. We will also build back-end parsers, converters, and storage schemes to enable these UIs.

Recommendation Engine

We have a news feed that displays recommended papers to our users. Currently we use a simple rule-based system where papers are tagged by research interests and our users can follow those research interests. In addition, our users can follow each other. We want our users to feel as if they are attending an amazing conference where everything we show them is the most relevant and up-to-date information that is available in their field.

In order to improve our recommendation engine, we will be immersed in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. We want to identify which particular field of the paper it correlates to (math, biochemistry, anthropology, etc.) and the type of document (original research, a review article, a conference presentation, a lecture note or some other content). Using everything from a paper’s previous viewers on Academia.edu to its author and content to its place in the citation graph, we want to determine the relevance of a particular document to a particular user. Lastly, using large-scale data analysis we want to identify trending papers, highlight influential researchers and help the public uncover important new work more quickly and reliably.

Mobile App

Academia does not have a mobile app but we are dedicated to building one!

Working with a clean slate, we will design and build a mobile API that displays Academia’s core features. These features will include the user profile, upload papers, news feed, analytic data, and the ability to make comments on papers (Peer Review). In order to build a dynamic mobile API, we will write easy-to-use client libraries in a wide range of scripting languages that will encourage integration with Academia’s data, content and identity into their apps.

Speed, Scale, & Storage

Our engineering team will have to build highly scalable systems that effectively store and analyze our entire stream of hits. We have built an analytics dashboard so that every user can see how many people viewed their profile and how many people have read their uploaded papers. We enabled this feature by storing structured data in DynamoDB- currently 343 million rows and growing 10% per month. We want to build features that require more sophisticated aggregations on this data than DynamoDB can provide.

Furthermore we will need to figure out how to effectively store massive amounts of data while increasing the speed of our product especially to parts of the world where there is slower internet connections. This is important because areas in the world with slower connections tend to be where researchers can benefit the most from open access to research. Our platform must be useable for them too.

Future at Academia.edu

We have a fun and agile team and we are growing (our site usage grows 10% per month)! We have the resources to make our mission come true. We just raised $11 million from Khosla Ventures, Spark Capital, and True Ventures. We're based in Downtown San Francisco.

Wanted: Programming Unicorn.

We aren't asking for much here at SwiftStack. All we need is someone that's

   * An experienced, opinionated crafter of scalable distributed systems
   * Possessed of a deep and abiding knowledge of Linux
   * A brilliant Python developer, steeped in the Web
   * Excited about deployment and knowledgeable about packaging and 
     the infrastructure that goes into getting nontrivial software systems 
     from "here" to "there"
   * Oh yeah, and it would be peachy if that person was really good at 
     front end development so they could give our users a smooth, 
     comprehensible experience that masks the inherent complexity 
     under the hood.
(We'll supply the horn.)

OK, maybe that is a big ask. It’s true, at a small (but growing) company, we do wear many hats, so the more you fit the above description, the better. But what we're really looking for is a smart, talented, intellectually curious engineer with a strong background in at least one of the above skills and aspirations to grow in one or more of the others.

We've got a multi-talented engineering team and a host of compelling software-related challenges in many different arenas, and by the time you're done here, you'll have broad and deep enough experience that you'll have earned your unicorn horn, and no can take that away from you. Because you'd stab them. With your unicorn horn.

Who the heck are we?

At SwiftStack we're building software to help people create petabyte scale object storage infrastructure in their own data center instantaneously. At our core, we use Swift, OpenStack's object storage technology, but we're building an orchestration layer that does the easy things for you, makes the hard things easy, and makes the impossible possible.

Why join SwiftStack?

   * You'll be part of a small team of highly skilled people who are also 
     very nice folks and would totally help you out in a pinch.
   * You'll be joining a company at a perfect size -- just big enough to 
     have momentum, but small enough that the decisions you make will have 
     a real impact on its course.
   * You'll get valuable experience building a product meant to manage massive 
     amounts of data. At scale, there are no easy problems.
   * Swift is Open Source technology, and part of one of the most important Open 
     Source initiatives in recent history: OpenStack. You'd be writing code that 
     people all over the world would use, including the likes of Wikipedia and CERN. 
If you've ever wanted to write code that has an impact, and we know you have, this is a good place to do it. Drop us a line at jobs@swiftstack.com, take a look at http://swiftstack.com/jobs/, and/or check out our puzzles at https://swiftstack.com/jobs/puzzles/. Thanks!


Hi, HNers. I worked with Orion a few years back and wanted to say publicly that he's awesome. Smart, chill, reasonable, and funny. I'll definitely be passing this along to friends.


Thanks, wpietri!


I stopped reading the instant I saw the word "unicorn". No, just no.


But the narwhal is so 2008. The Unicorn is coming back around! Like the 70's...for the third time.


I propose that, what with unicorns numbering one-third of the population in many areas, we simply cut to the chase by declaring that our firms will henceforth only hire demigod alicorn princesses. This will convey exactly the desired degree of hyperbolic rarity we intend.

The fact that there are only four known alicorn princesses ever isn't going to stop every firm insisting that each and every candidate hoping to interview provide strong evidence that he or she is one of the four alicorn princesses.

- High enthusiasm and desire to work on an entrepreneurial team.

- Roll-up-the sleeves attitude is a must.

- Meticulous attention to detail with strong organization skills

- Heavy emphasis will be placed on problem solving skills, personal initiative and good people management/relationship skills. Sense of humor is mandatory.


- This is virtual position, you must be able to work from home effectively

- Base salary and stock options depend on experience; health insurance, paid holidays and vacation are part of the package.

Send your resume along with links to your StackOverflow, GitHub profiles, etc. to pfreeman+hn@dicomgrid.com. For bonus points, include a solution to the following short task, including code in JavaScript or the frontend language of your choice: given a JSON object conforming to the schema { value: ..., collapsed: (true|false), children: [...] }, where children is an array of objects conforming to the same schema, and a function render taking values to DOM elements, layout the information for read-only display, with the ability to expand/collapse individual nodes. The aim of the exercise is to demonstrate familiarity with Javascript, so a very basic UI is all that is needed.


You mention remote work, but the listing on your site explicitly says the candidate must be willing to relocate.


Remote work is fine for the right candidate. Most of our team is distributed across the US as described in the post.

yerdle - San Francisco

We're hiring a whole-stack web developer. We're a new kind of store—stocked from people's closets and garages—where everything costs $0.


    === About yerdle ===
Why should we always buy new, when there are millions of perfectly great items sitting in closets and garages? How can we liberate these items and put them back into good use? How can we make sharing the new shopping? This is why yerdle exists. We help the world exchange second-hand goods for free. 80% of things in our homes are used once per month or less. The average power drill sees 6 minutes of use in its entire lifetime. There's 3 billion ft² of self-storage space in the United States. That's, like, two San Franciscos of usable stuff—just sitting there. Yerdle is changing that. People on yerdle give away everything from kid’s clothes to kitchen tools and electronics. And we make it easier to get something re-used rather than buy new. We aim to replace 25% of new purchases with free, second-hand goods from others. In the process, we're helping people save money and encouraging manufacturers to make better products. We're looking for people who are passionate about our vision and who want to use their skills to make the world a better place.

    === Team and Culture ===
We've been called 'unrepentant hippies'—and that's fine with us. This is a top-shelf engineering team building a great product in a fast-paced environment. We have developed deep trust and a lot of love as we've worked together. It's a close-knit team, we like to pair, and we teach each other every day. We have solid funding through incredible firms such as The Westly Group and Claremont Creek as well as angels with deep expertise such as Lisa Gansky, Adam Lowry and Andy Rappaport.

    === Workflow and Process ===
We're agile, we do daily standup, regular one-on-ones and project retrospectives, and we have fun together—rock climbing, surfing, and hanging out after work over beers. As an engineer at yerdle, you're more than a coder. You will influence the product's direction, bring brilliant ideas and execute them. We are polyglots, and most of our software is in Ruby, Objective-C, and JavaScript. We love to pair and we often let tests drive our development. And we code small (see our blog: http://codesmaller.com).

    === Hours and Schedule ===
The day starts around 9am and we have a standup meeting at 10. We try to schedule any other meetings early or late in the day, so the middle of the day can be a great time to get the meat of the work done. Most people head out around 6pm, but some nights we work a little later. Though yerdle is a 24/7 marketplace and we all have responsibilities in keeping it running smoothly, we try to keep our weekends clear as a time for R&R.

Amsterdam - The Netherlands. Full-time.

Layar (https://www.layar.com) is looking for a Back-End Python Developer, an Android Developer and a QA Engineer.

We are a front-runner in mobile AR technology. Our app is used by millions of users every month worldwide and needs to be the best in its class, our goal being to grow it to one of the top apps worldwide. Our app aims to stretch the technologies provided by iOS and Android to their limits, and relies heavily on reliable and highly efficient backend services and infrastructure to deliver an amazing experience. For content creators, our web front-end must be solid and quickly adaptable to new user demands.

We have three positions currently open:


- Back-End Python Developer

You will be joining a team of server developers with varied skills in web development, systems development, devops and QA.

Your primary roles will be to champion good software development practices in the team and to deliver high quality Python code. You will contribute to architecture and technical design of our back-end and of the Layar ecosystem as a whole. Our development team is small, and you can - and are encouraged to - have a big impact on product and technical decisions.

We expect you to be an experienced coder and technical designer, with a proven track record of designing, building, delivering and maintaining multi-server, scalable systems. A passion for delivering good products is essential. You know not only to make a computer do what you want, but also how to build (and keep building) a complex software product, within a varied and dynamic team.

We are specifically looking for:

* A proven track record in working on heterogeneous and distributed systems.

* 3+ Years of Python development experience.

* Experience with distributed source control (e.g. Mercurial, Git).

* Flexibility to deal with a rapidly changing environment.

Preferably you also have

* Experience with Python frameworks such as Django and Twisted.

* Experience with Infrastructure-as-a-Service, preferably AWS.

* Experience with automating analysis of large data sets.


- Android Developer

We are seeking a senior Android Developer who will take charge of our Android app and bring them to the next level. You will be working closely with our core team of mobile developers, buidling some of the core technologies that integrate in the app using assembly, C++ (NDK) and Java where appropriate to achieve the best performance. You will be responsible for building and delivering the new features on our roadmap. The ideal candidate will be flexible, self-motivated, loves making excellent code and takes pride in creating a great user experience.

Your primary role will be to maintain, improve and further develop our Android app. You'll be able to use frameworks provided by other team members and work closely together with them to ensure tight integration in the Android app.

Your key responsibilities will be:

* to architect, develop and maintain the Android app;

* to ensure best possible performance, quality and responsiveness of the app;

* to help and guide the product team when designing new features.


- QA Engineer

We are seeking a QA Engineer who will be responsible for the quality of our front- and back-end web platforms. You will test our products through every stage of the development process and will give the final go for deploying new features or new releases. The ideal candidate will be flexible, self-motivated, loves finding bugs with a comprehensive suite of test cases and hates it when a customer is the one that hits a bug. You will be proactive in writing automated tests as well as helping developers write their own, and you will never manually test an issue twice: if something has escaped existing tests, you will write a new test for it.

You will work closely in an Agile methodology with the engineering team, consisting of backend and frontend developers, and devops, as well as with the product team designing and creating functional requirements. You will be responsible to set up and maintain a comprehensive test suite, whenever possible fully automated, covering all regressions and new features built by engineering team.

Your key responsibilities will be:

* To specify and create test cases for new features;

* To write automated test scripts that will provide test reports at every sprint;

* To profile our apps in order to check for best performance, responsiveness and memory footprint;

* To assist the decision makers in approving the final go for each release.

As a QA Engineer, we expect you to have a proven track record of creating test suites and testing web applications and web services. You should have enough programming knowledge (preferably but not necessarily of Python) to be able to write tests for complex scenarios. Experience in continuous integration and continuous deployment are a plus.

In order to ensure the highest quality, we require:

* 4+ years of experience as QA Engineer;

* Excellent understanding of REST APIs and structured responses such as JSON or XML;

* Excellent understanding of the web stack and its related technologies;

* Good understanding of client-server APIs;

* Experience with Jira and test management tools such as TestLink, or similar tools;

* Experience with test automation tools such as SOAPUI, Selenium, PhantomJS and scripting from the command-line;

* Flexibility to deal with a rapidly changing environment;

* Passion for quality.

Preferably you also have

• Good experience in writing web software using a framework such as Django/Python;

• Experience with setting up server-based applications, such as a LAMP environment.


All positions are full-time, based on our office located downtown Amsterdam. Please apply at https://www.layar.com/about/jobs/ . If you have any questions, feel free to email me at rbp@layar.com

We're Hiring at Prismatic (getprismatic.com) The office is located in SOMA in San Francisco.


Frontend Engineer at Prismatic: iOS, Web, and Android. http://boards.greenhouse.io/prismatic/jobs/5971


Strong CS basics in data structures and algorithms. Strong engineering; thoughtful design and clean code. Graphics, browser, games, or animation experience a big plus. A front-end engineer that has a strong computer science background, but wants to focus on product engineering rather than backend systems. You don’t want to just take off the shelf UI components, but want to explore new interactions. You aren’t afraid to dig under the hood of iOS frameworks or browser code in order to make an animation or interaction feel natural and smooth.


Backend Engineer at Prismatic: http://boards.greenhouse.io/prismatic/jobs/5976


Prismatic is a great place to be a backend engineer - we analyze millions of shared web pages every day, automatically classify them into tens of thousands of topics, and serve up personalized feeds in real-time using our homegrown, lightning fast, machine learning-based relevance engine. We are looking to grow our top-notch team, with both junior and senior-level positions available. We are looking for engineers with deep interest and knowledge in at least one area core to our business (i.e., distributed systems, ops and tooling, machine learning, designing and building new product features). We’re a small team, so you will have the opportunity to have a lot of impact, and to learn from peers who are extremely talented engineers, computer scientists, and data experts. Our backend is written entirely in Clojure, a JVM-based LISP that is a dream to work in. Almost none of us knew it before we joined, and we don’t expect you to either. We do, however, expect the following: - You live and die by good abstractions. You know that they can make the difference between easily understandable and maintainable code, and a spaghetti mess. - You think about edge cases and performance implications, and anticipate future needs. - You read and understand existing code before diving in and adding your own. You re-use existing code whenever possible, cleaning it up as needed to be more generally useful. - You know when to do it fast, when to do it right, and how to find the best compromise between the two. - You recognize that we are all stewards of the codebase, not owners. You leave code better than you found it, and you fix bugs without grumbling about whose they are. - You are a team player who enjoys discussing ideas and implementations with other engineers. Here’s a small sampling of the things you will be working on as a member of the Prismatic backend team: - Making our crawlers and document analysis better and more comprehensive - Building out new product features in our API - Solving tough systems problems to help us scale reliably and robustly - Building and improving Machine Learning systems for ranking, document analysis, and more - Creating tools to assist development and ops - Shipping some of the best open-source Clojure libraries out there, and working with the community to make them better

We are also looking for designers, visual and/or interaction.


StepOne, Inc (http://www.steponeinc.com) - Austin, TX - INTERN, FULLTIME

Come be employee #5 before we get to #18 by the end of the year! We have been in stealth mode and under the radar in Austin, but are going to grow in a big way fueled by determination, investment and, yes, even revenue(Redbull doesn't hurt either). We are looking for leaders to help us build out the future and this is the perfect opportunity for someone wanting to make a big splash for themselves.

We are a funded (http://www.liveoakvp.com/past-investment.html) SaaS company that is simplifying customer support through personalized help via machine learning(ML), natural language processing(NLP), effortless identity and analytics.

Our stack is Django/Python, Postgres, Redis, Angular and Salt, but are also looking to expand this as we expand the solution. We believe in constantly learning, so if you have any great ideas about new tools that we should be using then we will certainly listen. We are not quite continuous deployment(currently on weekly schedules), but are working towards that. We practice TDD, code reviews and believe in automating everything.

We are currently hiring for:

* Django/Python developers to help us build out some immense backend services as well as dabble in mounds of machine learning. You will have the opportunity to jump around to all aspects of the stack if you want or you can sink your teeth into areas such as large scale data pipelines, data analysis and visualizations, sentiment analysis of content through natural language processing, sub-second real-time highly dimensional recommender systems or an intelligent SLA bound context discovery engine. We also have REST APIs if you're into that kind of thing.

* Dev Ops engineer(Junior or Senior) to help us evolve our international multi-datacenter deployment and operations by helping to develop new internal tools alongside Salt Stack. You will have the opportunity to work with one of the first Salt Stack certified engineers(http://www.saltstack.com/salt-blog/first-ever-saltstack-cert...) on the team who is leading our direction and worldwide server domination. We don't have walls up between operations and development so this is a perfect role for those developers out there wanting to dip into DevOps or the DevOps engineers who like to stretch their development side as much as their operations side.

* Client side developers to help us build out both our worldwide mobile web application presence as well as our web based management tool. We leverage Backbone, Angular, SASS, Bootstrap and D3.js in our tool belts. You would have a strong role in defining the future for these applications as they are both in their early stages and are in strong need of a passionate developer who wants to build a critical piece of our solution from the ground up. In the next year you will also have the opportunity to build highly interactive data visualizations using D3.js to help bubble insights up out of both ad hoc data queries as well as offline analytics from the data streams from our systems as well as our large scale enterprise customers.

We offer the following:

* Competitive salaries

* Equity

* Health Insurance

* Equipment budget

* Flexible vacation schedule

* A flexible working schedule

* Education/conference opportunities

* A passionate team

* And more...

If you are interested, please send an email to erik@steponeinc.com and come help us build the next Austin success story!

We’re starting off with test prep, a $4 billion+ industry, and want to expand to education at large.

- In addition to the founders, our company currently has two software engineers and seven instructors in a mixture of part-time and full time roles.

- We have over a thousand users and hundreds of paying customers and are growing quickly. We recently reached gross profitability.

- The founders are two Harvard/MIT grads who have started previous companies backed by Y Combinator and brought in over seven figures in revenue.

- We care about culture and a great work environment. We’re flexible with schedule, have efficient meetings, and want minimal hierarchy.

* We're Looking For

- Full stack development skills – you should have past experience on web backends (Django or similar, MySQL or similar) and frontends (JavaScript, HTML, CSS).

- Familiarity with web operations (Linux, Apache/nginx, AWS EC2) and our frontend stack (Backbone, SASS, Dust), and an eye for a design are large pluses.

- Willingness to try new things and pick up new technology quickly.

- We prefer an employee located in Massachusetts (we’re in Cambridge) or willing to RELOCATE (we will cover fees); however REMOTE working can be considered for strong candidates.

* Why Join Us?

- You’ll be a head engineer with an impact on company direction and culture. You’ll have the opportunity to lead the tech team and technical aspects of the company.

    Senior PHP Engineer
    We Are Base
    Bournemouth, United Kingdom
    Full time, in house 
A bit about the role 

This is a genuine opportunity to work alongside talented people to innovate and build digital services that make a difference to people every day, including an exciting product spin out. Working in an increasingly connected life, the role looks a little something like this:

1st class engineer 

You will be used to working as part of an unsilo’d production team, where designers work alongside developers, in agile sprints where they’re useful. Your main skill set is writing PHP but you may have experience with other languages (like JavaScript/Node.js, Go, Objective C or Java) that has influenced how you code. You’ll be familiar with PHP frameworks, such as Symfony, Laravel, Aura & Zend, and building on top of content management systems, such as WordPress. You’ll be comfortable with object orientated design patterns, unit testing, APIs & databases. Every pony at Base is capable of more than one trick. You’ll have an understanding of usability and how that works with functionality

Data hungry 

You’ll have a keen interest in datasets, with good skills in filtering the signals from the noise. You’ll have an eye to the future and know that tracking something now will make for way more interesting times later. You’ll be comfortable integrating 3rd party systems through APIs you’ve helped architect.

Open all hours 

You’ll have a keen interest in the way openness in technology (and in particular open data) can change things. And you’ll have ideas that mash one set with another, whether you’ve realised them yet or not. Our developers come up with projects for our clients, rarely the other way round.

Solver of riddles 

You won’t know the answer to every question that comes your way, but you’ll be someone who knows how to hunt it down. This job isn’t forensic science, but being able to piece the jigsaw back together and crack the nut is your daily bread. Inquisitive by nature you, like us, want to understand what makes things tick to make them better.

Getting shit done 

You’ll understand technical debt and be acutely aware that most pieces of code aren’t perfect, but you’ll be good at balancing the need to do something beautifully and the need to do it fast, including both where you can. You’ll regularly use Git, bash scripting and Sass, or similar, because of what they bring to the table.

Commercially aware 

You will be able to develop a genuine understanding of our client businesses, allowing you to identify opportunities for and with them. The best developers understand the end goal, not just their role in a project. You’ll be able to think commercially about the client business, as well as deliver work that doesn’t fall over as its user base scales. You’ll be expected to apply innovation to solve challenges, remembering that the best solutions are often beautiful in their simplicity.

Keen eye, tuned ear 

An eye for detail and a high standard of output is important to the success of the role. We’ve developed a code standard that gives us a bar to reach for. You’ll play a part in developing and guiding it as we grow. You’ll know that most project budgets don’t allow interface designers to cover every inch of an application, so you’re good at communicating with them and finding ways to smartly join the dots with a minimum of fuss.

Security and speed 

You’ll be hot on security too. The one thing that no one sees, until it goes to the wall. Then everyone knows about it. You’ll know how to react when an overseas friend tries to gain access to one of your servers from your years of ethical hacking. Creating applications that are quick is fundamental to the role too. An understanding of devices, connections and optimisation is key to delivering the quality we’re after. But then you already know that.

About We Are Base

We're a digital service design company that builds user-centred digital services for businesses, using data they already have.

We help our clients realise opportunities by transforming their data into something new and valuable. Clients include Timex, Garmin and Nottingham City Transport.

At Base you will be part of a team of makers and doers, working across a variety of projects and clients. We’re agile, but not dogmatic about it. Our process evolves to suit our needs.

We value and support CPD, actively seeking clients with a like-minded desire to push boundaries, providing you with an opportunity to build your experience and skills.

We practice a sustainable pace, recognising that we each have lives and families outside of work. Late nights and > 40 hour weeks are rare by design.

"Cote d'Azure" should really be spelled "Côte d'Azur"; don't mind the ô but please use Azur and not Azure... ;-)


Out of curiosity, what's with the (m/f) at the end of the job titles?


You see this often in German job listings, because the job title can intrinsically denote gender. For instance, Developer is "Entwickler" (m) and "Entwicklerin" (f). So employers tend to write something like "Web-Entwickler (m/f)."


male/female, a legal requirement in French job postings I believe.



DOWNTOWN San Francisco

FULL TIME Engineers

WORK with CEO Richard Price

WORK with CTO Ben Lund

WORK with 9 Senior Engineers

WORK with the mission to make life better

BUILD a killer recommendation engine immersed in Machine Learning and NLP

BUILD our next major platform called “Peer Review” from Scratch

TACKLE all things related to Scalability, Storage, and Speed VENTURE into mobile

HACK because that’s what you love to do

CONTRIBUTE to positive changes


We are Hiring a Team to Build a Better Future

Here at Academia.edu you will have an opportunity to join an agile team of 9 Engineers who are all making a positive impact on the world by contributing to a movement called Open Science. As a member of our team you will be given a lot of autonomy to choose projects that interest you the most and the ability to make product decisions with our CTO Ben Lund and CEO Richard Price.

We are currently tackling five incredibly difficult product challenges. Some of these projects have been attempted by larger companies and have failed. In order to be successful we will need to think way outside-of-the-box and take a leap into the unknown…

Peer Review

We want to build a peer review platform that allows layers of discussion on top of a single document. One of the biggest challenges we face is that contextual commenting at a large scale has yet to be achieved. In order to be successful we need to find original and novel solutions because simple approaches like putting a blog-style comment box at the end of the paper has been tried before and has not been effective.

To build Peer Review we must figure out a way to transform all the wide array of styles from any given PDF paper to a clean and consistent format that is embedded for a suitable commenting UI. We are experimenting to build a rich inline-commenting and discussion interface as well as a reputation system that surfaces quality comments.

Interface Design

We currently have 7.5 million users who upload their research papers. Academia converts these PDFs to HTLM5 to display in the browser. We face the challenges of building web UIs for scientific content such as 3D molecular visualizations and tools for exploring genetic sequences. We will also build back-end parsers, converters, and storage schemes to enable these UIs.

Recommendation Engine

We have a news feed that displays recommended papers to our users. Currently we use a simple rule-based system where papers are tagged by research interests and our users can follow those research interests. In addition, our users can follow each other. We want our users to feel as if they are attending an amazing conference where everything we show them is the most relevant and up-to-date information that is available in their field.

In order to improve our recommendation engine, we will be immersed in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. We want to identify which particular field of the paper it correlates to (math, biochemistry, anthropology, etc.) and the type of document (original research, a review article, a conference presentation, a lecture note or some other content). Using everything from a paper’s previous viewers on Academia.edu to its author and content to its place in the citation graph, we want to determine the relevance of a particular document to a particular user. Lastly, using large-scale data analysis we want to identify trending papers, highlight influential researchers and help the public uncover important new work more quickly and reliably.

Mobile App

Academia does not have a mobile app but we are dedicated to building one!

Working with a clean slate, we will design and build a mobile API that displays Academia’s core features. These features will include the user profile, upload papers, news feed, analytic data, and the ability to make comments on papers (Peer Review). In order to build a dynamic mobile API, we will write easy-to-use client libraries in a wide range of scripting languages that will encourage integration with Academia’s data, content and identity into their apps.

Speed, Scale, & Storage

Our engineering team will have to build highly scalable systems that effectively store and analyze our entire stream of hits. We have built an analytics dashboard so that every user can see how many people viewed their profile and how many people have read their uploaded papers. We enabled this feature by storing structured data in DynamoDB- currently 343 million rows and growing 10% per month. We want to build features that require more sophisticated aggregations on this data than DynamoDB can provide.

Furthermore we will need to figure out how to effectively store massive amounts of data while increasing the speed of our product especially to parts of the world where there is slower internet connections. This is important because areas in the world with slower connections tend to be where researchers can benefit the most from open access to research. Our platform must be useable for them too.

Future at Academia.edu

We have a fun and agile team and we are growing (our site usage grows 10% per month)! We have the resources to make our mission come true. We just raised $11 million from Khosla Ventures, Spark Capital, and True Ventures. We're based in Downtown San Francisco.

Search scientist. Amsterdam. Relocation and Visa provided. And I mean real search scientist, not just someone who put together Solr that one time.

We have a client who has a fantastic position which has opened up. They’re searching for you because you’ll be searching for them: they need an expert search engine/data mining specialist and very few people can fill this role.

You’ll have several years of experience with search engines and (preferably) e-commerce, a proven capability to mine data and a Master’s or Doctorate in Statistics, Math, AI, Computer Science or a comparable background. This isn’t for someone who’s just set up Elasticsearch, Solr, or some other search engine (though that helps). It’s for someone who can mine the data of customer searches and provably demonstrate they can create better search results for customers. You won’t be waiting for tasks to do: you’ll be deciding the tasks and how to do them.

How do you exclude a location 500 meters away from the one a customer is searching for but it’s across an international boundary or a river with no bridge? How do you do that in a performant manner? Or maybe searches in different languages should be treated differently based on cultural preferences? And do different categories of customers have different search needs? How would they be categorized and how would different search results impact them? Or maybe you can demonstrate that the above wouldn’t impact sales and you have a better solution?

The possibilities are endless and the position itself is very high level within the company. They’re offering a generous salary, an awesome work/life balance, a generous vacation package and a catch: you have to let them pay to relocate your household (even rats, if you want to) to the heart of Amsterdam, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. If you’re going to be sitting down sketching out how to group customers using adaptive resonance theory, wouldn’t it be lovely to do that while sipping a Grolsh, eating bitterballen, next to a beautiful Dutch canal?

And with 26 days of vacation and 9 public holidays, you’ll have seven weeks off a year to enjoy. Take a relaxing two-week road trip across Europe and return to work with several weeks of holiday left.

Given the extremely high level of expertise needed for this role, our client realizes that the few people who are both capable and willing to accept this role will need a relocation package. And if you have a family, our client will take care of them, too. Have special relocation requirements? As long as you are willing to work in Amsterdam, bring them up and the company will see what they can do. On top of that, you’ll probably qualify for something called the 30% ruling. This is a law passed by the Dutch government to attract top experts like you. When you qualify, you’ll be taxed on only 70% of your salary. The other 30% will be handed to you tax-free, effectively giving you a huge pay rise on top of an already generous salary.

This is a high level position in the company and you’ll be given a lot of autonomy to make things happen. Further, the success criteria for the job are extremely clear and you’ll be given all the tools you need to directly measure your success. The exact nature of the role can potentially be tailored to meet your personal preferences.

The work environment is laid-back, English is the working language, and you’ll be working with other expats with a sense of adventure. Amsterdam is a friendly, low-crime city and almost everyone speaks English fluently, but if you want Dutch lessons, our client will help. Heck, if you have other requirements, bring them and get them on the table. For the right candidate, everything’s open to discussion.

If this sounds interesting and you want more information, contact us at jobs@allaroundtheworld.fr.
