Position: Full-Stack Engineer (Javascript / Node / Backbone)

Location: SF, onsite

Company: Localize (https://localizejs.com/).

Localize is building tools to simplify the deployment and delivery of translated applications. We believe that startups are leaving a lot of growth on the table by ignoring foreign users/customers. It's an enormous opportunity.

As our 4th team member, you'd have full control over large parts of our product. You'll receive a competitive equity grant & salary with full benefits (details on our jobs page).

Apply: jobs@localizejs.com

________

You should be able to:

— Navigate our stack: Node, Backbone, MongoDB, Redis, AWS, Handlebars, and Less.

— Manipulate native browser APIs (DOM w/o jQuery)

— Understand MVC patterns and UI design

— Learn quickly, act autonomously, think analytically.


I'd really love to see a MongoDB provider in between Compose.io and MMS.

We were on Compose for 1.5 years, but recently switched off to MMS after we started running in to scaling issues.

Compose is a bit limiting if you need to tweak / monitor resources for scaling, but running reliably on MMS means really understanding how your deployment works (which might be the best long-term position to be in, but a bit distracting for a ~5 person team).

It'd be great if Compose could offer a managed MongoDB service that ran off instances in my ec2 account (so I'd pay base ec2 rates, plus a $50-150 per-server fee for managing the deployment)


Delegation.

It's definitely a negative signal for me if someone has moved around a lot within the last few years.

It's not so much a problem for a senior engineer who can onboard relatively quickly.

But for junior engineers, I would be a lot more hesitant because the onboarding that the company invests in you is lost if there's a high chance you'll move on a few months later.

$130k is well above average for a pre-funded startup in SF - Where are they getting the cash to pay you? Are they profitable?

0.2% sounds a bit low.

IMO it's not a bad starting point for a negotiation. If you're expecting something significantly higher, it might makes sense to look at later stage companies (or a company like Google or Facebook if you want to maximize your earning potential)

Personally I don't mind when people showcase their work on HN (although I agree the landing page is a bit overloaded on marketing speak).

Perhaps it'd fit in better as a Show HN.

-----


Perhaps but I don't think the author is the one that submitted it.

-----


Correct, I didn't submit it. I hadn't planned on it either, but when it hits the front page, you sort of have to pay attention and go with it.

-----


I'm sure it was from a fan of your podcast or Micropreneur Academy. You have delivered so much quality free content over the years I have no problem with a pure sales link to your book on HN.

I did YC in 2012 and am in Techstars NYC currently with a new company.

YC's reputation is probably 2x stronger than Techstars, but that doesn't directly translate to a 2x higher value-add.

Both programs are a lot different and will jumpstart your company. They've both been 100% worth it.

Note: Techstars programs between cities can be dramatically different (different people running each city), so I can only speak for Techstars NYC.
