Second Street helps media and marketing teams grow and understand their audience with our easy-to-use promotions, messaging, and data analysis web platform. CBS, Entercom, ESPN, The Washington Post, Sports Illustrated, and over 3,000 others rely on Second Street to create meaningful interactions with their consumers.
We’re a close-knit, vibrant organization located in downtown St. Louis -- close to Wash Ave, the Metro lines, and the Arch. Second Streeters have a passion for software and the success of our customers. We host local meetups whenever possible, including the STL Ember.js meetup. More than anything, we value and trust each other. We set our own goals and and give everyone the opportunity to offer feedback on major projects. We keep it casual and work together to get things done.
This position will be a member of our cross-functional development team which is made up of designers, testers, back-end developers, and front-end developers. Members of the team enjoy a high level of autonomy while also working very collaboratively in-person and using Slack, Trello, and Hangouts. We work together to ship code every day and are constantly looking for ways to improve. Developers at Second Street are fully involved in every part of the process, from planning, to developing, to testing, to launch. We strive to use best practices including version control, automated testing, responsive design, code reviews, and occasional pair programming while keeping an eye toward usability and user experience. This position, in particular, will have a special focus on making sure we’re using best practices in our front-end development, especially with Ember.js. A typical day could consist of anything from spooling up a new ember-cli application and integrating with our existing library of ember-cli addons to helping another member of the team work through a particularly vexing issue.

My company got some of those peel-and-stick whiteboards after we moved offices (I think whiteyboard, but I'm not certain). Prior to the move we had IdeaPaint; it soon had erasure problems, and ended up looking like a disgusting mess. I'm really pleased with the peel-and-stick kind after about 6 months.
> How is Privacy Badger different to Disconnect, Adblock Plus, Ghostery, and other blocking extensions?
> Privacy Badger was born out of our desire to be able to recommend a single extension that would automatically analyze and block any tracker or ad that violated the principle of user consent; which could function well without any settings, knowledge or configuration by the user; which is produced by an organization that is unambiguously working for its users rather than for advertisers; and which uses algorithmic methods to decide what is and isn't tracking.
> Although we like Disconnect, Adblock Plus, Ghostery and similar products (in fact Privacy Badger is based on the ABP code!), none of them are exactly what we were looking for. In our testing, all of them required some custom configuration to block non-consensual trackers. Several of these extensions have business models that we weren't entirely comfortable with. And EFF hopes that by developing rigorous algorithmic and policy methods for detecting and preventing non-consensual tracking, we'll produce a codebase that could in fact be adopted by those other extensions, or by mainstream browsers, to give users maximal control over who does and doesn't get to know what they do online.
Sure, but I don't think it really qualifies as "see, science solves every problem". And what if there are houses everywhere? There will be time slots for rooftops. After a certain size of the houses, there will not be enough rooftops for everyone to get sunshine.
