Ask HN: Who's Hiring? (take 2)
202 points by qhoxie on Aug 12, 2009 | hide | past | favorite | 227 comments
The original "Who's Hiring?" thread was one of the most active threads ever at HN, and I know it did a lot of good for a number of companies and individuals. I think we are due once again for such an opportunity to connect these people.

So, as LukeG put it "Are you hiring? Does your company (or your friend's) have openings? Let HN know!!! Let's get some good people good jobs."


* I got my current job from the previous thread. It has been a pleasure.

* Original: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=375410

We're hiring here at Cloudera.

We're especially interested in web developers who have built and deployed large, extensible applications into production environments. An interest in data visualization and analysis doesn't hurt. We also have some deep distributed storage system hacking problems.

We have a strong preference for open source experience: our team (see http://cloudera.com/about) includes core contributors from the Berkeley DB, Ganglia, Lucene/Nutch, Hadoop, and MooTools projects.

We expect you to communicate ideas clearly, exhibit preternatural intellectual curiosity across a variety of domains, write quality code, and have a consistent focus on improving yourself and the team around you.

If you're interested, drop your CV and a cover letter to jobs@cloudera.com.

Dropbox is hiring -- we need great Python (ideally C/C++ too) hackers. YC '07, later backed by Sequoia and Accel, growing like crazy (almost 2 million users, up from <100k this time last year)

jobs@getdropbox.com, please put "HN" in the subject

Just a thought, but maybe in future installments of this kind of thread it should at least be suggested that people attach things like: (1) where the job is located (2) if telecommuting is an option.

If the job is too far away, it might not be worth my while to even attempt an application.

Great service, keep it up! What will you be looking for 1.5 years from now?

Wow, I just realized it's been a year already since I signed for the pro account..

Keep up the good work Drew!

Automattic runs WordPress.com, Akismet, Polldaddy, IntenseDebate, Gravatar, and more. Here are our open positions:


And information about how we work, which is a lot like an open source project:


If you apply mention [HN] in the subject it'll make it stand out. We typically do a paid trial project of 2-3 weeks on contract before making a full-time offer.

My startup, LightSail Energy, Inc. is an exciting, well-funded startup in the $100 billion field of green tech energy storage. We are located in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are seeking to fill several Mechanical Engineering positions. Applicants should have at least 5 years experience in product design of mechanical components.

Please be familiar with at least some of the following:

design of hydraulic and pneumatic systems, heat transfer, thermodynamics, fluid power, pistons and seals, and multiphase phenomena.

Candidates should be comfortable with 100 kilowatt to multi-megawatt systems. Our needs range from mathematical modeling and design of experimental apparatus during the Research and Development phase, to designing for manufacturability and reliability. The ideal candidate will be a hands-on design engineer who possesses a high level of creativity and innovation required to be a valuable asset to the company.

Interested? Please send your resume to jobs@lightsailenergy.com.

No materials engineers?

Not at this point: we're not focussing on the design of materials, but their application. We are, however, interested in tribologists and other seal experts.

Citrusbyte http://www.citrusbyte.com is hiring software engineers. We're based in Los Angeles and build custom web applications of all types. While we mainly work in Ruby, we believe in using the best tool for the task independent of language. On previous projects we have written custom ejabberd modules in Erlang, bots in Python+Twisted, and Tokyo Tyrant extensions with Lua, among others. Ability to self-manage is crucial. Feel free to apply even if you are new to Ruby if you have significant experience in another web framework (Django, Catalyst, Ocsigen, etc) and know HTTP inside-out.

If you are interested, send an email to jobs@citrusbyte.com subject "200908 dev application". Include a file named <yourfirstname>_<yourlastname>-phase1.tar.gz with code in any language that does the following:

Given a word, output all anagrams of that word that are legitimate words. Notes: use a reasonable dictionary of your choice, for sample input "EAR" your output should be "ARE ERA", this will be benchmarked

We're looking for an Android and/or iPhone part-timer or intern (we'll likely offer you a full time job in about 2 months, but we frankly can't afford it right now). It's fine if you don't know ObjectiveC+Java+Clojure+JS+Lisp. (although, ideally, you should know at least one of them).

Technology: We have a fairly complete Common Lisp back end and are developing various front ends (mobile web, full web, iPhone, Android) now. Built on top of a BerkelyDB key/value store (Elephant with some secret sauce). Stateless sessions, almost completely static frontends, novel (and fast+scalable) architecture. A lot of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing on the back end, and we're toying with the idea of some novel UIs on the front end.

Business: We can get funded now, but are looking to do a regional launch in Boston (and/or NYC) in September in order to push our valuation up. We are small now (2 business people + 2 technical peoples) but given the founders' pedigrees it's very likely we will be funded with favorable terms when we are ready.

I can't say too much about the company, but email me if you are interested (for what it's worth, I'm not a founder - I'm just in charge of the technical stuff).

Bump Technologies is looking for Java or Mobile developers: http://bumptechnologies.com/jobs.phtml

If you don't know Bump, our technology let's two phones connect by bumping them together. Currently we let users exchange contacts and photos (but more is on the way). We are YCS09, featured in Apple's most recent TV commercial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giBNazD-Lm4) and currently #3 free app overall on iTunes.

In general we are just looking for really smart people that are excited about Bump and fit in with the team. Although we haven't posted a job yet we are also looking for someone to help with scaling (good at algorithms, optimizing apache2, SSL/HTTPS, and mod_python). If you think that architecting and scaling a real-time matching algorithm across geography and millions of users sounds interesting please get in touch.

We would love to hear from anyone interested: jobs@bumptechnologies.com

Twitter is hiring: http://twitter.com/jobs

A lot of different roles for engineers, come join us.

Blackhole alert: I did apply at twitter a month and a half ago, and never got a reply back. Neither positive, or negative.

They probably do get too many applications. They are like the brangelina of sillicon valley right now.

I'm really not a big fan of online application forms - is there an email address I can contact?

Heyzap.com (YC09) is expanding fast and we're hiring for our 4th team member (engineer) as well as interns to join us in our San Francisco office!

send us your details! - jobs@heyzap.com

More info here: http://www.heyzap.com/docs/jobs

Yahoo has an opening on for their application platform team.

Expert javascript a must, PHP and/or Java a plus.

It's a tough role, but rewarding. I've held the position for the last year and half, and it's been a good experience. (I'm moving over to YUI.)

Great team, lots of interesting problems to solve.

I'm on this team, working with javascript with a side of PHP. Isaac nailed the description and we hope you'll consider the challenge.

It's an awesome group with plenty of engaging problems left to solve. Gearing up for the Y! Homepage is only one of them.

More: http://developer.yahoo.com/yap/

If interested, send your resume to rburke at yahoo-inc dot com and include Hacker News in the subject.

Applying in the yahoo career portal is the worst crap they don't even review the application but they call them self as hiring.

But... why are you going through the career portal anyhow...?

You've got someone (reid) here who's currently on the team, and me, who's leaving the team and creating the opening. We're giving you email addresses and offering to send your resume directly to the hiring manager.

It seems like you just want to complain. For the record, yes, Yahoo recruiters do review the applications submitted to the career portal, as well as resumes posted just about anywhere else. Maybe you're just bitter because you weren't hired?

I'm not trying to be a jackass here so I apologize if I come off that way, but what's the YUI team up to? I havn't seen a bugfix update to the 2.0 branch in a while. Is everyone focused on 3.0?

No worries, it's a pretty valid question.

AFAIK, the only development on YUI2 is to fix "significant" (ie, new and/or awful) bugs, and to remove forks and special code that was in place for deprecated browsers (ie, safari 1.0 stuff, mostly.)

All the new development is happening on YUI3.

I'm not an authority on the matter, of course, since I've only been on the team for -1 week ;)

No need for downmods; nostrademons works at Google.

However, won't HN people applying through that method just be sent in to a black hole?

If you're someone whose username I'd recognize, you can send me a resume (my e-mail is in my HN profile) and I can refer you. That sends you to the top of the pile that HR looks at (technically, I think it's two separate queues, and they empty the referral queue before they look at the slushpile), though you still have to get through the interview process. I got in through a referral - I'm guessing it helps quite a bit. And there's a nifty bonus for me if you're accepted. :-)

Does Google even hire people who care any more? Does it only hire people who interview really well? From what I've gathered, most people who get through the HR disaster there these days (old times are exempt; decentralizing hiring is the first sign of impending disaster) really aren't that smart; maybe they've merely perfected a sort of slimy smooth-talking (literally speaking), typical of most salesmen.

As much as I want to still love Google, it's getting harder every day. Even my original suggestion regarding pixel space amounts on the search results page template seems to have been implemented recently:


Yeah, I'm a wee bit irked; I think I deserved a bit more than the lie-wielding form rejection email from my application somewhere back in early 2005 or so. And don't even get me started on the fact that Google went and doubled the limit of receiving pay on my AdSense account sometime last year; so I've still not even seen anything from that.

So as much as I still want to love Google, it is getting harder every day. Your comment regarding "Nooglers" is actually pretty funny considering how many of them, like me, have probably been really diligent in their quest to get hired just about anywhere.

I know Nostrademons in person, who was recently hired by Google, and I can vouch that he does care, is extremely smart, and isn't a slimy salesman. Though it's getting larger, and hence more bureaucratic (from what I've heard on the outside), Google still has the best data in the world and hence attracts world-class engineers.

Besides a referral what got you in there? I can't imagine, from what I've read, that it is an easy task once they give you call back.

If you believe my recruiter, it was previous startup experience, strong CS fundamentals, and good JavaScript knowledge. In other words, I had a skill set that they needed and seemed like a person who could get things done. Pretty standard stuff.

The interview process was less difficult than I thought it would be. 1 phone screen, 4 (supposed to be 5, but one never showed up) in-person interviews over a day. I'd thought I'd flubbed it when I got out, but apparently the interview feedback was quite positive.

If I had to guess what makes most candidates bomb, it's that they don't have sufficient depth in the positions they're interviewing for. For example, at the end of one of my interview problems, the interviewer asked me "And how would you attach that event handler?" And I replied "Well, if it was IE, I'd use element.addEventListener('mouseover', fn, true). If it was a standards-compliant browser, I'd use element.attachEvent('mouseover', fn)." Note that that's wrong - it's backwards. But the interviewer didn't care. He just wanted to make sure that I was aware of those functions, because so many of the people he interviews would just say element.onmouseover = fn.

Similarly, most of the disastrous product-manager interviews I've heard of have been because the candidate would give handwavey answers and couldn't clarify what he meant or figure out how to support his opinions with data, even when prompted by the interviewer. Google culture really prizes precision, perfectionism, and strong opinions backed up with data - if you're used to finding the first Google hit on the web, implementing something by copying and modifying that, and then saying "Okay, it's done," you really won't fit in here.

What's wrong with "element.onmouseover = fn", by the way?

In this way you can attach just one function to the event. Other way allows for more flexibility.



But I guess interviewer was not implying onmouseover was "wrong", just probing how much does candidate know about the topic.

In this way you can attach just one function to the event. Other way allows for more flexibility.

Alright. To me it sounded a bit like onmouseover was used only by bad programmers.

I'm kinda curious why you would ever use onmouseover when attachEvent/addEventListener are available? I just took out the remaining calls to .onEvent handlers in websearch's JS library - the only browsers that don't support the W3C/IE event models are so ancient that they don't get JS anyway, and there's not much point using a method that's unnecessary on modern browsers and does the wrong thing anyway.

So yeah, my interviewer wasn't implying that onmouseover is used only by bad programmers, but I am. ;-)

Maybe I only need one event handler, or maybe I've baked a function that calls another function?

Besides, I'd rather use one standard method that works across browsers than choose one based on the user's browser. Would you call that bad programming? :p

Nowadays I generally use jQuery (.click(fn)) though.

Ah, okay. Most of the stuff I've worked on adds events through a library (eg. jQuery.click(fn)), and there's no reason for that library to use onmouseover etc.

They always say they are - they spam craigslist every week like clockwork - but I haven't heard of anyone being hired in quite awhile. There were rumors of a undisclosed hiring freeze awhile back; I wonder if things ever got better.

Quite untrue - I was hired about 2 weeks after the "hiring freeze" was rumored.

We have a Noogler starting in my department this week, so there's obviously not a hiring freeze. He's the first (in my department) since me and one other person were hired back in January, so the rate is obviously slow. I know a bunch of Nooglers that recently started on internal infrastructure projects though.

You have provided some excellent information here for people interested in getting a job at Google. You seem like a friendly, bright, and helpful person. So I say this with respect for you and for your own benefit. You must never, under any circumstances, ever use the word "Noogler" ever again.

FWIW, two of my friends got offers in the last two months.

If anyone is in the so cal area, we've started hiring as fast as we can in the Irvine office.

Does the Boston/Cambridge office hire interns?

http://GetGambit.com is. YC & Facebook alum. One of the leading companies monetizing online games today. We are profitable too:O

Let me know what you'd like to be developing, noah [at] getgambit.com

Note: Noah is awesome. Go work for him :) (he's almost single-handedly made me successful)

Academia.edu is hiring:


Academia.edu helps academics answer the question ‘who’s researching what?’ We have a very engineer-driven culture, and we are looking for an ambitious and product-obsessed software engineer to join the founding team. We describe more of the qualities we are looking for on http://www.academia.edu/jobs

How'd you get the .edu domain if you're a company?

looks like it was acquired from a previous registrant whose ownership against the later .edu rules had been grandfathered, therefore liable to get dropped from the zone file at some point in the future should the service ever become popular.

Gilt Groupe (www.gilt.com) is hiring for a wide variety of technical positions. We have a rapidly growing revenue stream and interesting technical problems to work on (building a distributed commerce platform which can absorb 100x request rate spikes, peaking at Amazon levels). Most of our systems are in Ruby or Java, but if you have the right experience using any language, we want to talk to you.

Righteous, gilt.com is great. Thanks for the bag!

yo give me an invite.


Justin.tv is: www.justin.tv/jobs

Send us an email - it's a great place for developers and we always love getting news.yc applicants.

I've never seen justin.tv not hiring, and it always seems to be the same positions - do you guys actually hire people? :)

From 4 founders to a company of more than 20, so yes, we do.

I'm guessing that continuous hiring means getting the best when they're available, not getting whatever is available when you need it today.

Accenture and Google spam news sites and job boards all the time. Luckily, Google shut down the local office in my city. If they can't find an "HTML/Javascript/CSS developer" in a city filled with students, they are either idiots or not hiring.

Dakim, Inc. is the leading provider of brain fitness among America's senior living providers. We help seniors use rigorous cognitive exercise to prevent or slow the development of dementia. At least, that's what our marketing people say. I say it slightly differently: "We help seniors remember their grandchildren for a few months or years longer than they would otherwise."

We started in 2005, are venture-funded, and are not yet profitable. We're raising our 2nd round of venture funding right now. All employees get stock options, and we have medical, dental, and vision coverage.

We're looking for people who will work out of our Santa Monica, CA office. It's a casual office environment with really good coffee, and people often bring their dogs in to work. Today there's a Neapolitan Mastiff (http://twitpic.com/cwjfl) and a Chihuahua here.

Our touchscreen appliance (visible in the picture at the link above) runs Ubuntu Linux, and most of our infrastructure is Linux-based, with a few Windows (SQL Server) and OS X boxes. Our GUI software is written in REALbasic, and our system administration scripts are BASH and Python.

We're also in the process of developing a software-only installable product that will run on OS X and Windows.

Our desktops are OS X or Linux (your choice) with two big-ass monitors per person. We do well (but not 100%) on the Joel test, and are always looking for ways to make our work more efficient and productive.

Our biggest need right now is for someone in a combined Linux System Administration and QA Automation role. This would entail everything from installing and configuring Postfix to automating install testing for our Windows product.

We're also looking for QA Engineers for the Windows/OS X Product, and for additional support people, again, with Windows and OS X experience. Linux experience for both the QA Engineers and the support people is a huge plus.

To avoid getting put in the "Craigslist" mountain of resumes, send a cover letter and resume directly to me: schof at dakim.com

Amazon Web Services is hiring!

There's a job listing at http://aws.amazon.com/jobs (as I write this there are 48 listings). We need hard-core developers, testers, product managers, marketing managers, support engineers, sales folks, and business developers.

If you know me and vice-versa (sitting in the audience at a conference and hearing me speak is generally not sufficient to establish this condition), track me down and send me a resume so that I can do a personal referral.

Otherwise, follow the directions on the site.

To start, we are hiring at AboutUs in Portland, OR. We need more Rails hackers to help us scale outward and develop new aspects of our application.

We are a top 10 Rails site and get to deal with intriguing issues every day. Solving massive scaling challenges while pairing with people like Ward Cunningham (our CTO) is how we work - it could not be any more fun and engaging.

Check out our jobs page for the full run-down: http://www.aboutus.org/AboutUs.org/Jobs/Developer

Humble note from international talent: please specify whether you could sponsor any work visa in the country where you are hiring.

" please specify whether you could sponsor any work visa in the country where you are hiring."

and whether international tele commuting would be a valid option. (I'd guess not, most of the time, but it doesn't hurt to ask)

We (BackType) are looking for an engineer to join the founding team:

Songkick is hiring.

We're based in London, Ruby on Rails (but if you're good, we'll help you make the switch), great team, growing rapidly.

Currently looking for: Junior Dev, Application Dev, QA Lead.

See http://www.songkick.com/info/jobs

3banana is hiring -- we have an iPhone, Android, and web app.

3banana makes it easy to capture and share information.

You throw it into the iPhone / Android / Web, and you find things using hashtags.

"surf wise #movie" "chasing ghosts #movie"

FreshBooks is hiring a ton of people right now. Some that are not even on the hiring page. I can attest that it is a very awesome place to work.


(tell 'em in the email that you found out about the opportunity from Hacker News, the founder loves ycombinator)

Freshbooks is awesome. I started using it about 6 months ago and it reminds me of 37signals products in the sense that just using it you get the idea that it would be a good place to work.

Do you know if they are hiring developers?

Oh yeah, we are always looking for developers. Especially smart ones.

Another cool thing about being a developer/designer at FB is that they encourage side projects. Proof? http://www.guestlistapp.com/about/ http://www.freshbooks.com/our-team.php

And here is head of dev tweeting about them: http://twitter.com/barsoomcore/statuses/3224450516

Here is VP of Marketing tweeting about them: http://twitter.com/MitchSolway/statuses/3210081160

Our very own "Queen of Hearts" (social media++ girl): http://twitter.com/rlangdon/statuses/3178658450

They totally understand that if you are going to get great developers you should expect that they will have side projects. Side projects hone skills and expand horizons.

You may not know this, but it's worth asking: What are the Canadian immigration laws like regarding non-Canadian citizens coming to work there?

Depends where you are coming from. Basically, the way I understand it is like this:

Platinum: From Great Britain, automatic acceptance, some sort of old law that is still on the books. Gold: From United States w/ BSc, BASc, BEng, BMath, CS, etc... If you have a white collar job offer it is basically a shoe in. Silver: A whole host of countries (New Zealand, AUS, Israel, Germany, China, Korea) w/ a family member or a job offer. Bronze: A refugee. Or from a country like South Africa. Harder to get in. Get on a waiting list, wait for years till something gets triggered. Denied: Palestine, Iran (except to study, or unless you are Bahia)

Check with a lawyer though. I'm certainly no expert, I just repeat the experiences of my friends.

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/tool/index.as... Is the Canadian "eligibility tool"

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/apply-who.asp Is the "who should apply" link

-Quote- If you meet these minimum requirements, your application will then be processed according to the six selection factors in the skilled worker points grid. The six selection factors are:

your education your abilities in English and/or French, Canada’s two official languages your work experience your age whether you have arranged employment in Canada, and your adaptability. -End Quote-

Awesome, thank you for taking the time to provide so much detail.

CrowdVine is hiring a sales rep for the conference side of our business to process inbound requests. We're four people and have been profitable for two years without anyone dedicated in this role. I'm the founder and owner and can be reached at tony at crowdvine dot com.

I think it's interesting how few companies on this list have non-technical roles. I know there are people on the business side on this site and that they have a lot to offer.

Fluther is hiring for employee #1 (full-time).

jobs at fluther dot com.

http://www.presencetelecare.com/ is looking for a lead engineer (first technical employee).

Details at http://presencetelecare.com/careers#1226ffb63eb89022_OLE_LIN...

I'm not affiliated with them, but I know the founders are looking high and low for the right person.

I couldn't find it mentioned anywhere on the site, but where are they based out of? I have a friend whose sister is autistic and whose mother became a speech pathologist because she couldn't find any "good" ones in the area (and have done some technical work there in the past).

Any one hiring in india?

EDIT: I would love to hear what exactly is "offending" people in the following.

"Any one hiring in india?"

As far as I can see all the jobs above are in the United States.

(Edit : changed order of paragraphs to address Paras's comment below)

Most software companies in India are either body shoppers (TCS, Wipro, Infosys) or are "Offshore Developement Centres" (ODC) (e.g IBM, Intuit, etc) which do crap work no one in the US offices want to do. Neither type needs or inspires great engineers.

Indian companies aren't (by and large) startups and/or doing technically sophisticated things, which is what would need great (vs just decent, or worse) engineers.). When you have an industry dominated by outsourcing/ODC it is hard to find a engineering focussed organizations.

Even the India centres of great companies like Google or Yahoo do (comparatively) uninteresting work - I have friends in both Google Bangalore and Yahoo Bangalore and they confirm this. Yahoo Blr does mostly operations , the "Yahoo Research" division in Bangalore is a joke. Google Bangalore is not much better, though it has a couple of US returned engineers who are decent but by and large no really great projects happen here. Goog blr doesn't have much of a reputation within Google either.

To get the kind of jobs advertised here, one of two things needs to happen (1) India develops its own rich ecosystem of technically sophisticated startups (except a couple of very small unfunded startups, most are just trying to copy existing ideas and don't need any skills beyond pretty generic php mysql etc) or (2) great engineers in India should be able to telecommute for the startups advertised here.

Neither situation exists today, which is a tragedy. I know seriously good people who don't want to go through the visa/greencard grind and so are stuck in awful jobs.

All that said, I'll be glad to be proved wrong. If there are any Indian startups which are (1) funded (enough to apay a decent salary) (2) doing (technically) interesting things and (3) looking for great engineers, I hope they add a job listing here.

>Indian companies aren't (by and large) startups and/or doing technically sophisticated things , which is what would need great (vs just decent, or worse) engineers.

I downvoted you because of the offensive generalization you made. I would have appreciated a thoughtful analysis rather than a general bash that your reply seems to be.

"I downvoted you because of the offensive generalization you made."

Interesting. Why should you be offended? Let's take a look at the statement you quoted as "offensive".

"Indian companies aren't (by and large) startups and/or doing technically sophisticated things , which is what would need great (vs just decent, or worse) engineers."

The "by and large" bit of the statement you quoted is a qualifier that means exactly what it says. In other words by saying

I am saying

(1) Most Indian companies aren't startups. (But a few are). (2) Most Indian companies aren't doing technically sophisticated things. (But a few - in this case a very small minority) are.

If you think either of those statements are wrong, please make a counter argument with logic or facts instead of being "offended". I would love to hear a convincing argument that most Indian companies are startups and/or that they are doing technically sophisticated things.

That said, downvote away if it makes you happy! I couldn't care less about my karma score! Downvoting is your privilege as a member of HN. Whether you use that privilege blindly or thoughtfully is completely up to you. :-)

PS: I am Indian, live and work in India etc, fwiw.

(1) Most companies in the world (including US) aren't startups. I don't see how that case is special to India.

(2) Most companies in the world (including US) aren't doing technically sophisticated things. I don't see how that case is special to India.

Even if data shows otherwise, it is unfair to put a qualifier "by and large" and then start the bashing. That is a safety device you have adopted.

It doesn't really matter if you are Indian or not. Your argument should stand for you, not for the country you belong to.

"It doesn't really matter if you are Indian or not. Your argument should stand for you, not for the country you belong to"

Oh I completely agree. I was just wondering if you thought I was some Non Indian "bashing" Indians. Good to know you are not.

"(1) Most companies in the world (including US) aren't startups. I don't see how that case is special to India.

(2) Most companies in the world (including US) aren't doing technically sophisticated things. I don't see how that case is special to India."

First adressing the point you make above, I did follow up with a paragraph (in the OP) on how Indian companies are mostly outsourcing based or ODC's attempting to do low quality work their parent organizations shift to India. In other words I am making a direct Causal link between the fact that most compoanies in India do bodyshopping/outsourcing to why great enginers find working here frustrating.I've edited the order of paragraphs to represent that emphasis if it weren't clear.

You were the one who chose that sentence as specifically "offensive". Pointing out that this isn't specific to India isn't the same as being "offended".

If you are saying that there are companies, especially startups in India that match the technological sophistication of say Facebook or Google, I'd love to hear specific cases. I hold my opinions very loosely and am quite willing to be corrected/

That said, "Even if data shows otherwise, it is unfair to put a qualifier "by and large" and then start the bashing. That is a safety device you have adopted."

I am not "bashng" anyone. I don't need a "safety device". What I wrote is what I genuinely believe. I am not a politician trying to convince anyone to think as I do!

This is a completely wrong argument. What "the data shows" is what is important. Instead of trying to guess my intent ("bashing" , "offending" and so on, without much to base these judgments on), why don't you counter my argument?

My argument is that outsourcing companies are very common and sophisticated startups are very very rare (practically no existent and less than say about 15 or so in number at most) in India and consequently there isn't a large market for really good engineers, who mostly migrate to the USA.

If you believe I am wrong,here is a challenge for you. why don't you name some Indian startups (say 10 would do) which are (a) funded (b) doing technologically sophisticated software? That way all of us benefit.

Glusterfs comes to mind. Some of the code from that project is simply way out of the ballpark. Check the 'continuation across network' macro in one of the C header files, if you don't want to take my word for it.

It's more sophisticated than anything else that I've seen in a long long time.

The stereotypes you are referring to exist but they are not the one and only rule. And weasel words ('the safety device') are not needed, you could simply take your own medicine and do your research yourself, then eat some crow.

The Indian software landscape is too large and too diverse to make such sweeping generalizations by one person with a possibly limited view of things. I'd hazard such a statement about my own country, which is a LOT smaller than India.

The outsourcing wave has put lots of money into the Indian economy, and just like what happened in Japan after drudgework and copying comes a wave of innovation. You can't stop that cycle. India is not doomed to be an outsourcing venue for ever, they'll be a force to reckon with (and in fact, already are).

Expect a large wave of startups from the region in the next 5 years, they have one headstart over everybody else, ramen profitable there means hosting + $500 / month.


Strange that you use GlusterFS as an example.Yes they are technically sophisticated but then I know the CTO of ZResearch (the company offering commercial support for GlusterFS), Anand Babu, personally and he is a good friend. Some of the people who wrote the core code are Indians (including Anand) who live in the United States.

Do they have an office in Bangalore? Sure they do. This is the "ODC" model I referred to, where development is done in India because it is cheaper.

With that disposed of,

"The stereotypes you are referring to exist but they are not the one and only rule."

(a) I didn't refer to any "stereortypes" (b) I never claimed this was the "one and only" rule.

"you could simply take your own medicine and do your research yourself, then eat some crow."

Sure! I'll be glad to when any of my claims is refuted.

meanwhile, may I suggest you do the same for using GlusterFS as an example of an Indian startup? ;-).

ZResearch (the company offering commercial support for GlusterFS) is very much an American company which has some Indians among its founding members. It was founded in the United States by people who were living there at the time. If any startup having an Indian amongst its founders is an "Indian startup" then sure ZR is "Indian". The decision makers (irrespective of ethnicity) all live in the USA and the core of the code is written in the USA == "American Company" to me whether they have an office in India or not. I suspect this is where we differ.

I am confused. you say

"The Indian software landscape is too large and too diverse to make such sweeping generalizations by one person with a possibly limited view of things."

and then

"India is not doomed to be an outsourcing venue for ever, they'll be a force to reckon with (and in fact, already are).

Expect a large wave of startups from the region in the next 5 years,"

Isn't the latter an example of the former? In this case the "one person making generalizations" (about the future in tis case) being you. Nothing wrong with that of course. There are always exceptions to almost any "rule" one can think of.

Have you lived or worked in India? How would you know what the "Indian software landscape" looks like? What facts support your contention that list is very "diverse"?

I agree that in the future technically sophisticated startups may emerge out of India. In the present such startups are VERY rare.

One example of such a startup is "guruji.com" - an Indian search company (I know people who work there). They don't have much traction yet but they do some interesting work . I know a couple of unfunded startups trying to do interesting things.

All this doesn't change the fact that the Indian softare industry is largely about outsourcing and most Indian startups largely do not try to do technically sophisticated things. THIS was my contention not "there isn't a single technically sosphisticated startup in India"

I maintain there is nothing "offensive" about that idea. it is just the truth. I am surprised people get "offended".

If I had ever said "India is doomed to always be an outsourcing destination", I can see how it could offend. Since I never claimed anything like that, (vs people randomly getting "offended" but offering no real counter examples) I don't feel the need to defend an obvious strawman.

As to "weasel words" I never knew "most" was a weasel word ;-). I look forward to the day when we all speak in absolutes ;-).

OK that said, this argument is now degenerating (indentation depth is a good metric) and so I'll withdraw. (My email is available in my profile for those who would like to take this offline)

Anyone reading this please list any great Indian startups you know who are looking for great engineers. This would be very helpful.

Anand Babu lives in the US, but Anand Avati (and others) work out of BLR. I have known them for quite some time and I think Avati is one of the best Engineers I have met in my life.

The kind of work they do is also awesome. I don't see ZR as an American company outsourcing easy work to India.

"Anand Babu lives in the US,"

And that is what I said.

"I have known them for quite some time and I think Avati is one of the best Engineers I have met in my life."

I don't know Mr.Avati. I will gladly take your word for it.

" I don't see ZR as an American company outsourcing easy work to India."

This is a matter of perception. We don't have to agree completely to respect each others' opinion. With respect to ZR in particular (vs the Indian software industry in general) I only claim that ZR is an American company with an Indian office. No more. I am well aware of the talent level of AB and his colleagues.

The difference in perception between Jacques and me is on whether ZR is an American company or an Indian startup. I respect his opinion while sticking to mine. And ZR doesn't invalidate the point I made anyway (which was that ZR is an exception, not the rule.)

I would also like to state that I agree with you on most points. I am an Indian, trying to do a startup in India.

I'm in contact with people that are like Zresearch what I call 'thin start ups', companies that have a front office in the US for funding and representation issues, and a back office in India where all the development takes place.

There are very good business reasons for setting things up this way.

Still, I see GlusterFS as an Indian start-up, not an American one. It is run by Indians, from the top to the bottom and everywhere in between.

To get funding and to be able to access the American market you have to have an office - preferably your titular main office - there. In this respect they are not different from Logitech, another 'American' company (never mind that they really are Swiss).

As for your confusion re my statement about a limited view, yes, that's a generalization too, but it's a conversational trick to put those two at the same level.

To say that you do know the Indian software industry at that level is an absolute statement that I think you can not make with any confidence.

To say that you can't know the whole landscape simply because of its size is one I can make with confidence simply because you'd have to be omniscient in order to be able to do so.

India is going through much the same phase as were Japan was when they were 'used' to produce electronics for the United States in the 60's of the last century. The amount of know-how that is being amassed there and the amount of money invested will sooner or later result in a tech boom.

The fact that GlusterFS is an Indian (not an American) company to me is some proof that we are underway in this, and I know of another 50 or so companies that follow this same model. Just like Logitech is Swiss they're as Indian as can be, even though for the outside world they'll do everything they can to present a different face. That's simply good business and I don't begrudge them for it.

Weasel words : qualifying your statements in such a way that you can twist their meaning later by pointing at your qualifiers.

As for my view of the Indian software scene I have seriously considered moving to India in order to start a new company there but for logistical reasons have decided to stay in the Netherlands for the time being, I have a son in school here and I don't want him to pay part of the price of my business adventures.

In the running up to that decision I did a very thorough survey of the Indian IT landscape and I was absolutely amazed at how much quality software comes out of India and how thin the 'we're a us company' veneer sometimes is.

It's happening, it's happening now and if you are not a part of it then get moving, you have an amazing edge over the rest of the world.

There are two countries right now where the chances of making it big as a hacker/ceo are substantially higher than in the rest of the world, the first is India, the second - and still to a lesser extent but I'm not sure how long that will last - is China.

Say hi to Anand from me btw :)

Regarding your friends with unfunded startups, drop me a line please. (email in my 'about' bit).

The growth of the IT industry in India was very fast. It did not grow organically like it did in the US. Most of the work in India is outsourced work and this means that the Indian IT industry grows as fast the IT industries in the outsourcing countries. This inorganic growth is showing its ugly faces now.

A big issue I see frequently is that smart people do not have the opportunity to grow in India. This cannot be blamed on the system though. If you are smart, you ought to find other smart people and hang out with them. It is through sharing we grow and it was how the hacker community in the silicon valley and other similar hubs developed.

I think that the hackers in India should come together to form a platform from where they can start sharing ideas and innovate. Waiting for the other 99.9% of the so called IT industry to correct itself and follow the path of innovation and solve real hard problems is not worth at all.

If you are smart person or a hacker in India, (you are if you are reading this) you ought to make up your mind, find like-minded people and start engineering good systems. That is how every thing good in this world started.

By and large I would agree with the summary you have provided of the "high-tech" scenario in India. Though, I would also take exception to some of the statements you have made. I have worked for a year in one of the services companies (I detest the word body-shoppers) you've mentioned. I have also worked in Bangalore for an ODC of a US technology products company. It is true to say that most of the work done in these organizations is not really technically sophisticated.

The part of your note which did not resonate well with me was this: "except a couple of very small unfunded startups, most are just trying to copy existing ideas and don't need any skills beyond pretty generic php mysql etc". - I'm not sure what kind of research would give you the necessary insight to make such a statement. For a tech guy from India who has worked globally- such a statement undermines your whole writeup.

Your next statement also disappointed me greatly "great engineers in India should be able to telecommute for the startups advertised here." Can you estimate the carbon footprint created by such a telecommute? - The Carbon Footprint generated by a single roundtrip flight between India and USA / Canada overshoots the annual footprint of an average Indian by 62%. To suggest a telecommuting option between the India and US to me is absurd and environmentally criminal.

Also, the wishlist you have given for Indian startups does exist. You just need to look for it in the right places. Such information would not come to you on the headlines of ET but is available deep in the web somewhere.

I have realized that "great" (I'm not sure how you define such a term) engineers in India like to be courted by companies as they feel that by gaining intellectual prowess they should just have to sit back and wait for companies to come to them. This is especially true if one has been working for a large US Tech MNCs. This is not really the mindset for entrepreneurship. If you are really looking to join an Indian startup as a part of the founding team- reach out to them and let them know what you can offer instead of waiting for them to add a job listing here.


Thank you for your cogent reply. I claim no infallibility and am glad to be corrected when I goof up. That said,

"I have worked for a year in one of the services companies (I detest the word body-shoppers) you've mentioned."

Hmm I used "body shoppers" as a functional description. Why should you beoffended? isn't that what these companies do? (I've workd for these companies too btw. So I amnot putting myself up on some predestal)

" I have also worked in Bangalore for an ODC of a US technology products company. It is true to say that most of the work done in these organizations is not really technically sophisticated."

Ok great. we have some grounds for agreement.

"The part of your note which did not resonate well with me was this: "except a couple of very small unfunded startups, most are just trying to copy existing ideas and don't need any skills beyond pretty generic php mysql etc". - I'm not sure what kind of research would give you the necessary insight to make such a statement."

Ok what I meant by this was that a good chunk of startups in India are duplicating success stories from the USA and do not necessarily need people with skills in say Erlang or Haskell or Kernel Hacking expertise and so on. Please, look at the job descriptions of Indian startups? How many ask for or requiredeep Javascript or MySQL experience? Most are just throwing up random webpages.

I know a few exceptions but most startups in India lack either technical or business sophistication (Yes I know this will be controversial. I stand by this claim. Anyone "offended" by this, please provide lots of counter examples or an argument that most startups in India re doing very cutting edge work)

"great engineers in India should be able to telecommute for the startups advertised here."

Umm what is wrong with this opinion? Ecological footprints? I wasn't thinking of ecology. Frankly I don't care. In my ideal wold anyone would be able to work for any company, irrespective of nationality without wrestling with arcane visa regulations and so on. telecommuting is the only way I know for this to happen.

"Also, the wishlist you have given for Indian startups does exist. You just need to look for it in the right places."

Why don't you give me specific examples of such startups? Anyone can make vague generalizations like "look for it i the right places" . What are "the right places"? Give me some concrete examples.

"If you are really looking to join an Indian startup as a part of the founding team- reach out to them and let them know what you can offer instead of waiting for them to add a job listing here"

Where did I say I am looking for a startup to join? I have enough work (the non outsourced, technically ultra sophisticated kind ;-)) for years.

Directi are doing some very interesting things. They're not VC funded, but that's because they've been profitable from day one. They've also started recruiting from outside India.

I say this with some trepidation since I am not familiar with Directi first hand, but having seen their job ads once too often now, I would like to know what exactly are the "interesting things" they are doing?

Based on their products page (http://directi.com/products/) Other than one "pre launch" product that will do instant messaging and free email, their entire business seems to be built around "landing pages" for domain parking companies.

Directi's recruitment process is the crappiest, they need people to use codechef to start the process which is a biggest buggy system and no admin replies on the forum.

I up-voted you and encourage others to do the same. Thank you and plinkplonk for a very interesting and thought provoking discussion. I did not see your original posting, but your edited version is excellent as well as the follow up discussion with plinkplonk.

I especially appreciate both of you pulling back from the brink of a /. "discussion" by re-engaging with facts and rational discussion.
