Other incubator. 2004-2007. We had a good product, but didn't focus enough and instead pivoted twice to arguably worse products. The company barely scraped by until last year, when it was sold to a well-known market player. We founders were so diluted by then that we only got a minor amount. Was a great journey but won't be repeating it until I find a product I believe 100% in. You have to be in it to win it. Working as a consultant now and one thing I can say for sure is that running a startup gives you one hell of a headstart competence-wise.

Other incubator. It failed in early 2012, a little over a year after it was founded and probably 6 months too late. I'm now working at one of the other startups from my batch, and things are going great.

It was really tough to pull the plug, but it was really obvious it was time to do so. We were out of money in the bank and weren't making enough revenue to stay aloat

2010. I went into a 2-day startup crashcourse with a rough idea that I didn't even plan on telling anyone (so rough it was) and went out with a prototype done by a google-employed engineer (I wasn't a programmer at the time) and a couple of investors ready to back me up. In the following months, I (me personally, not the situation neither anyone else is to blame) failed miserably and went through a very rough psychologic breakdown.

My co-founder and I ran into a lot of logistical issues when building out a Bitcoin remittance platform. One of the biggest blocking issues was dealing with regulatory compliance and preventing people from committing fraud on the service. Turns out that these headaches are extremely common across all Bitcoin companies, so we 100% switched to http://blockscore.com/ which drastically simplifies compliance and anti-fraud.

I failed in 2005 (wasn't an incubator, more like an angel thing). We started in 2001 and had some moderate success, but in the end the business wasn't scalable, and the concept was horribly flawed at a point in time where most of our customers had financial difficulties. The business/myself was acqui-hired, luckily, otherwise I'd just have gone under with all the personal debt I had (unwisely) accrued.

Now I'm kicking around some ideas.

Actually, after nReduce failed I thought I might try a second take on the idea of a community-based incubator.

Yes it failed (other incubator). Maybe 7 or 8 months after. I started working at a another startup where I knew one of the cofounders. It was definitely the right choice.

Sometimes ideas just take a while to take off and will be ultimately successful. Sometimes ideas are just bad, and you need to kill them and move on. Sunk costs can be a bitch, but you're not getting that time back, so make the most of the future.

lightblade 23 minutes ago 0 replies      
Yes. I've used (loose) UML in previous startup jobs to help communicate problem. I've never seen UML used in docs though. It's usually when we encounters a problem, we draw it out on the white board and talk about it from there.

Custommade (http://www.custommade.com/) - Cambridge, MA

Full-time devs. Frontend Backbone.js / jquery. Backend Python work, would likely be working with Django.

We're a two-sided marketplace that does matchmaking between professional artisans / craftsmen and buyers. You post your dreams, we find someone to make it real. People come up with some crazy ideas like a custom made quidditch set / proposal ring: http://blog.custommade.com/portfolio/a-very-harry-potter-pro...

Or and r2d2 engagement ring: http://blog.custommade.com/portfolio/r2d2-engagement-ring/

Or a portal one: http://blog.custommade.com/portfolio/not-your-typical-engage...

We're a small, tightly knit eng team. Boilerplate about stack / team here: http://engineering.custommade.com

Various Engineering Positions open: http://www.custommade.com/careers/


We're funded by Google Ventures and a ton of others: http://www.crunchbase.com/company/custommade-ventures so paying you well is not an issue. We recently raised an 18 million series B! We're growing like crazy, and with that comes scaling challenges. But it's all part of the fun.

We have a great team and a great environment that focuses on customers and product development. When I'm working on product stuff, I get to collaborate with product / UX / support people day to day to build a product that meets a real business need, and makes everyone happy. But when I just need to bang out some code, people leave me alone. When I'm working on platform or architectural stuff, I get great advice and feedback from my coworkers. Expressing opinions and having discussion is encouraged.

Fridays are refactoring / innovation day to scratch your good code itch. Work / life balance is great. Bureaucracy is at a minimum.

Devs get a macbook pro, a huge thunderbolt display, and an Aeron chair.

We love contributing to Open Source, here is a list of what we've released so far, with more to come: https://github.com/SawdustSoftware We also regularly participate in and sponsor the Boston Python group, which is the largest python user group in the world. I've spoken there twice so far. We also often help stream the event for them, check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/bostonpython/

Tech blog here: http://engineering.custommade.com/sawdustsoftware/

You're a low-ego programmer who is always learning, has pushed code to production innumerable times, and doesn't cringe at the prospect of collaborating with a team of non-techies every so often. You know the modern web stack well, and specialize in at least one part of it.

Get in touch with our director of talent & culture at sabrina -at- custommade dotkom. Let her know that "Mali" sent you.

Buffer (http://bufferapp.com) - REMOTE (We're a small distributed team of 13 people across the US, UK, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Sweden and Australia)

I'd love for you to come join Buffer for the fun ride. We just crossed 1 million users and are on a $2m annual revenue run rate. There are some super interesting challenges ahead to scale Buffer as we start to focus on Buffer for business.

We're looking to expand our engineering team with the following open positions.

* DevOps Engineer

* Backend Engineer

* Front-end Engineer

Here are some key stats about our technology and scale.

    - we have over 150k monthly active users.    - 6700+ API clients. Most popular: Feedly, IFTTT, Pocket, Zapier    - we release changes several times a day    - we have an entirely data-driven process, with Einstein and Buffer-Metrics, our custom built a/b testing and metrics tracking framework.    - Some of the tech we work with: PHP, Python, MongoDB, AWS (Elastic Beanstalk/Auto scaling, Elasticache, SQS), Backbone.js, Grunt.js, Android, iOS.
More stats and stack insights here: http://overflow.bufferapp.com/2013/08/01/scaling-buffer-in-2...

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

If you're interested in coming on board, you will:

    - work closely myself on technical architecture and Joel on product.    - ship to hundreds of thousands of people who use Buffer and iterate quickly    - work with our metrics team to make smart changes    - be friendly and comfortable talking directly to customers on issues and features    - be a happy, positive-minded and kind person who has a great approach in dealing with others    - be a Buffer user     - be anywhere in the world, and if you'd like, you'll have help and support from us to move to where you want to be    - have experience working with another startup or building side projects before (would be awesome, its cool if not)
Some aspects of Buffer culture that makes us a little different:

    - we are entirely transparent. We raised $450k, we currently have 1 million users and generate $175k/mo. Ask me anything else!    - within the company, all salaries and equity are open and we have a formula for the distribution.    - we're all very focused on self improvement - we have daily standups where we discuss our current improvements. This could be waking up earlier, starting public speaking, blogging, exercise, learning a language, etc.    - here's our culture deck: http://www.slideshare.net/bufferapp/buffer-culture-03
Salary: 88k-110k depending on location (living costs) and experience. (http://99u.com/articles/15527/the-age-of-salary-transparency)

Equity: 0.5-1%

If this sounds fun, let's chat. Send me a note about yourself, why youre interested in Buffer, and any relevant links (Github profile, projects and background): http://jobs.bufferapp.com

SpaceX - Los Angeles, CAhttp://www.spacex.com/careers

We seek to accelerate the course of human history by developing the technologies necessary for multi-planetary civilization.

We build rockets and spacecraft from the ground up, utilizing much of our own electronics, software, vehicle structures, and engine systems. The Falcon launch vehicle and Dragon spacecraft are among the most ambitious engineering systems in the world. Dragon holds the distinction of being the first commercially developed spacecraft to have achieved orbit, rendezvous with the International Space Station, and a safe return to Earth. SpaceX is advancing the state of the art in a field previously dominated by nation states.

Our next developments include a heavy lift launch vehicle, human transportation, and a reusable launch system that will drastically reduce the cost of access to space.

FLIGHT SOFTWARE DEVELOPERAs a software developer on the flight software team, you will be creating software that is used to design, develop, launch and operate SpaceX flight systems. You will engage with other SpaceX engineers to discover the needs of the mission and code highly reliable software that turns the mission into a reality. You will be responsible for the complete lifecycle of the software you create, from development to testing to operation during a mission. You will accept a large degree of personal responsibility, work on awesome stuff and every day be completely baffled as to how you ever worked anywhere else.

SPACEX SOFTWARE ENGINEERINGThe flight software team is responsible for the software that runs on-board SpaceX rockets and spacecraft, but we do more than embedded software engineering: we also do simulations, distributed data management, and analysis tools used in preparation for a launch. Our problem domains span embedded, fault tolerant, flight control, web, mobile, cloud, and big data computing. The products that we develop run on low-power space computing platforms, mobile devices, desktop systems, and in data centers.

We are an organizationally flat group of a few dozen software engineers. Although we work on and support critical systems, you wouldnt know it from observing our office. When it comes to the code we are unrelentingly meticulous and thorough, but when it comes to people we are big on open communication, flexible hours and a casual work environment.

When considering you as a candidate, we wont be focused on specific experience, skills or keywords. We will be looking for evidence that youre smart, adaptable and exceptionally productive. You will show us that youre an accomplished programmer, capable of working in many problem domains, and that you can ship products. Youre the engineer that other engineers can count onyoure highly technical, you attack every problem with enthusiasm, and you share the teams passionate dedication to the mission.

At SpaceX, the problem domain is full of exciting challenges, and launching the product will be like no other product launch youve ever experienced!

Note for new or recent graduates: If youre a new or recent graduate, show us you have some experience outside of your academic course work. Personal projects (web apps, mobile apps, electronics, etc.), or club projects (robotics clubs, programming clubs, etc.) are a strong indicator that you have an appetite to improve yourself as a professional engineer. This will go a long way with your application.

You can apply online or e-mail your resume to ryan.fitzpatrick@spacex.com. Thanks!

Mutually Human - Grand Rapids, Michigan



We are a small team passionate about making people's lives better through software.

A little bit about us:

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

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

VERBA - San Francisco

* Rails/JS Product Focus - HALF-TIME with benefits

* Rails/JS Product Focus - FULL-TIME

* Product/Infrastructure Reliability/Performance Focus - HALF-TIME with benefits

I mentioned a couple months ago that we have a couple engineers who work half-time-ish (and do their own things the rest of the time) and it got some positive feedback: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=5235860

We're looking to hire a couple more engineers who are interested in being part of a team but would prefer to work 24-40 hours per week instead of the usual 50+. We're also looking to hire someone full-time (40ish hours per week). If this sounds interesting let me know (ragalie@verbasoftware.com)


About us:The college textbook market is currently being disrupted. Verba helps colleges and universities transform themselves so that they a) embrace the power of transparency and the internet, b) become agents of change in the textbook industry instead of agents of reaction and c) continue to make approximately the same profit margin from course material sales.

About 300 colleges and universities use our applications to acquire low-cost inventory and price textbooks competitively. Then millions of students visit our white-labeled sites to transparently compare the bookstore's offers against online competitors, and around 80% of students choose to buy from their local bookstore.

We're looking for people familiar with some of Ruby, Rails, Clojure, MySQL and JS who can help us grow faster. We have a great team, embrace new technologies (we just switched to Puma, we're moving to the JVM so we can use Netflix's Hystrix project to reduce API-related downtime), but also care a lot about producing and maintaining a stable, solid product for our customers.

The ideal person has strong Rails knowledge, solid testing practices, a good head for architecture and knows enough JS to help out on front-end. Additional pluses are a stats background, experience with Hadoop and knowledge of scheduling algorithms.

You can check out our website (http://www.verbasoftware.com) to read about our current products and hear people say nice things about us. :)

Nairobi, Kenya



Launching public cloud to the African continent using OpenStack. Amazon Web Services won't come here so we're building it right now.

The company is in the seed stage but you'll be working with me (former NY startup CTO), this guy James (awesome local DevOps person), and another guy Anthony (Princeton grad with a finance background).

We're just getting started but have a server up already and will be launching to the beta list later this week.

I can pay for a plane ticket and a small salary but this won't be about big monthly dollars - rather it will be about doing something super cool in a place that's super cool and where on the weekend you can literally drive out of the city and camp where you hear hippos at night and see lions during the day and hike an extinct volcano.

Oh, and you'll also become part of an amazing tech community that's thinking big.

Contact me at adam@kili.io if you're interested in doing 2 months or more or if you just want to find out what it's all about.

Segment.io - San Francisco, CA - Full-time

Looking for:

  * Backend Engineer  * Mobile Engineer  * Customer Engineer


Backend Engineer

Our analytics backend is getting to be quite the beast. We want your help scaling our thousands of events per second and terabytes of data. If you're a fan of distributed systems and like to stress-test a new database every other week, you'll fit right in. And it won't hurt if you like streams, trying out ES6 features, and open-sourcing your work.

Our entire backend runs on Node, with a sprinkling of Redis, Mongo, and RabbitMQ. We're open to running a variety of languages and could still use someone to show our Go and Erlang libraries some love.

Think that might tickle your fancy? We've got a few projects in the pipeline that you can sink your teeth into right away:

Live DebuggerYou'll build a system that helps developers debug requests to the Segment.io API, and whether the request has been successfully routed to all its destinations. The fun part of this one is working at a variety of scale (isn't it always?). You'll have to build a system which helps devs debug on localhost, but also help them monitor production environments sending 500 requests a second.

MapReduce for AllWe'd love to have a way for developers to query the terabytes of analytics data stored in the Segment.io data warehouse. Can you streamline the process until your mother can submit mapreduce queries with ease?

Data Export APIsPerhaps you'd like to build an API to export analytics data from Amazon S3 (or maybe even Glacier?). Exporting will have to stream terabytes of data without waking our ops guys in the middle of the night. Then, you'll deploy the system to EC2 and test it, and announce it to the world!

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

  - a description of your own favorite software project (code is a bonus)  - a link to your Github (if you have one)  - what languages and frameworks you like to use, and why  - any bash command you'd probably use to inspect a logfile

Mobile Engineer

With our new iOS and Android SDKs we want to change the mobile analytics game. The market is flooded with new mobile analytics startups, but underneath they all collect the same data. And anytime you make an analytics change, you have to re-submit your app to the app store. Bummer. :'(

Developers can drop in our SDK and then later enable any of Segment.ios dozens of analytics integrations without writing additional code or even submitting updates to the app store. Both iOS and Android SDKs are open source, so you'll be working closely with the rest of the community (and get a great chance to show off your work).

Here's some examples of what you'd probably tackle at Segment.io:

Best New ToolsAs the maintainer of the SDKs, you'd have total control over which analytics tools get added and distributed across millions of devices. What are the best new tools? Something for an interesting new app category? Help our users find the best-in-breed mobile analytics tools, and build them into the SDKs so that they can enable them instantly.

Community DistributionAs Segment.io's mobile expert, you'll be guiding (and helping write!) lots of the mobile content marketing we produce. We want you to become the world's leading expert on mobile analytics, knowing the business models, industry, tools and problems inside and out. We'll help propel you to become a thought leader in a brand new field.

Xbox, Playstation, RokuYou could also play around on new platforms, bringing analytics bliss to the home entertainment world and gaming platforms.

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

  - a description of an app you worked on (code is a bonus)  - a link to your Github if you have one  - the most interesting mobile SDK you've worked with and why

Customer Engineer

At Segment.io, customer support drives the focus of the entire team. We're looking for a hungry engineer (don't worry, we'll feed you) who approaches customer support with an analytical efficiency. You'll keep finding new ways to improve the product, libraries, and docs wherever it's needed. For most of our users, you'll be the face of the company. Are you suave, courteous, and patient? :)

You'll be responsible for analyzing our richest source of data: support requests. "Where is support coming from? Why do customers need help? Which parts of the product need the most love?" You'll be in charge of automating as much of that as possible without sacrificing quality.

Currently we get about 40 support requests per day. Here's the breakdown:

35% are variations of "thanks your product is super awesome!" which are fun.25% are technical support requests for our main javascript library. You might have to jump on Skype with a Ukrainian developer or a Japanese designer (watch the timezone!) or maybe run down the street to help a local startup.15% are technical problems with our mobile libraries for iOS and Android.10% require debugging a server-side integration: Python, Ruby, PHP, Java, .NET, or Node.5% are completely confused, but we still <3 them.and the remaining 10% are hiring, sales and other random inquiries.This kind of analysis should feel natural to you!

Your analysis of support issues, feature requests, and customer feedback will be absolutely critical to planning tasks with the rest of the team. We want to make sure we're all building things that will benefit our customers.

Segment.io's support team also educates our customers on how the product works. You'll chat with marketers, data scientists, developers, and business owners from all over the world to help make their analytics amazing.

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

  - a description of your own favorite software project (code is a bonus)  - a link to your github (if you have one)  - think of the last time you taught someone something technical, what was it?

ClassDojo is used by over 15mm teachers and students to manage behavior in the classroom, using real time feedback and rewards that can also be shared with parents. We're an edtech startup with funding some of the biggest names in the valley (Jeff Clavier, Ron Conway, General Catalyst, Mitch Kapor...), and we're one of the fastest growing education companies of all time. We're the only non-YC company that Paul Graham has ever invested in. We've built a product that makes a real difference and gets huge engagement with millions of kids, and we're about to take it to the next level, hopefully with you on board. We have a strong team, an extremely comfortable and relaxed environment and great salary + benefits. If you're a strong hacker who wants to use JavaScript to change the world, apply here:

  --------------------------    https://classdojo.wufoo.com/forms/join-classdojo/    --------------------------    
Or email jobs@classdojo.com. You can read about the work and environment here: http://www.classdojo.com/jobs


We're particularly looking for:

  * Frontend Engineer  

What's the role?


At the core of ClassDojo is a node.JSON API built on node.js which makes use of multiple services and handles hundreds of requests per second. The frontend web application talks to this API, and it's a single page app that uses our own (soon to be open-sourced) JS framework - mojo.js - which combines the best bits of Backbone, Ember and Angular. That means great templating with powerful and efficient data-binding, but plenty of flexibility to build apps quickly. You'll work on this and other awesome tools, and you'll build a lot of user-facing features that go out to millions of kids around the world every day. It's pretty rare to have impact like this, and as much freedom as we'll give you.Everyone on our team agrees that this is the most exciting phase of the company that we've seen, and we're growing so quickly that we're all very eager to meet and work with you!


What skills are we looking for?


* This is primarily an engineering role, rather than being design or CSS focused. We'd like you to be really strong on JavaScript fundamentals, up-to-date with modern JS engineering, and familiar with advanced DOM manipulation.

* Having said that, some minimal design chops would be cool...

* ...but not essential. We do have designers.

* A good sense of product and a desire to have a creative role in designing product features is important to us.

* You love building things well and building them quickly - like us!

The best way to show this off is to point to things you've built. We'd love to see personal projects which demonstrate the above.

Many problems and opportunities facing humanity require science-based solutions:

- Diseases: Curing Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Cancer, HIV, Malaria - Energy: We need to to find cheap and clean sources of energy - Computing: Computers and robots can achieve so much more than they do now

The scientific process is much less efficient than it could be. Academia.edu's goal is to fix the problems in science so that science becomes faster and more open. We want to get every science pdf ever written on the internet, accessible for free.

Academia.edu is a platform where a scientist can share their research with their followers, and track how many people are reading their research, and from which countries. These metrics help move the needle for scientists when they apply for jobs and grants, and motivate them to share more of their work.

A leading climate scientist in Germany wrote "Academia.edu shows the impact of your work that is not covered by Web of Science and citation indexes of that sort. With Web of Science you only learn how many people have quoted what. But with Academia.edu I can see what is viewed, what is actually read or not. Here I learn something additional, something I would not know otherwise.

4.5 million academics have signed up to Academia.edu, and around 1 million join every 3 months. Currently scientists have uploaded 1.6m papers, of the 57 million papers ever published. The number of papers on Academia.edu is doubling every 7 months. Come and help us get to 57 million papers.

Bijan Sabet from Spark Capital writes "We believe open science is really important. We believe Academia.edu is going to have a profound impact on the world."

We are looking for full-stack engineers, and also designers. Technologies we use include Ruby, Rails, Postgres, Mongo and Varnish. We are a 10 person team based in downtown San Francisco. We just raised $11 million from Khosla Ventures, Spark Capital, and True Ventures.

Some key values we look for are: being motivated to open up and accelerate science, being a do-er ("You must be the change you wish to see in the world" - Gandhi), and having common-sense, boldness and humility.

Watch the founder, Richard Price being interviewed on Bloomberg TV yesterday http://www.bloomberg.com/video/academia-edu-scientific-resea.... Read coverage of the funding round here http://venturebeat.com/2013/09/26/meet-academia-edu-a-startu...

Parse.ly - Remote Work in or near Eastern Timezone (EST) -- http://parse.ly


We're a fully distributed team (see http://bit.ly/distributed-teams for a post by me, the CTO) -- which is to say, a merit-based, technology-forward, super-bright team of Pythonistas who happen to collaborate using the same methods of major open web projects like Wikipedia, Wordpress, Ubuntu, and Mozilla.

We just closed a $5M series A round. As a result, we're looking to expand our engineering team. We are looking for full-stack engineers and senior engineers, especially focused on our backend analytics technology.

You'd be joining the company at a great time. Our engineering team is still small enough that we all fit in a room, but unlike two years ago, we are making millions in revenue and have a ridiculous amount of data to draw insight out of on behalf of our customers.

You should be an expert in a mainstream programming language, preferably Python or JavaScript. You should be willing to learn, or already know, technologies like Fabric, Chef, Tornado, MongoDB, Redis, Solr, Cassandra, Pig, Storm, and Amazon Web Services. You should be extremely handy at a UNIX command line, possessing all the skills of a sysadmin.

If you join us, you'll be part of a well-funded and high-revenue SaaS analytics company that is rewriting the rules of online media. Our software aggregates data on over 5 billion pageviews per month of traffic, and we work with major media companies as customers, such as The Atlantic, Arstechnica, Mashable, The New Republic, MIT Technology Review, and many more.

Get in touch with us directly at hello@parsely.com if you are interested -- mention HN and ask for Andrew.

Asana - San Francisco (H1B, INTERN)

At Asana we are building a shared task list for teams in an effort to re-imagine the way people work together. As knowledge workers, we and our loved ones spend most of our time living in programs (email, calendar, document editors, etc.) that help us move and manage data, and get things done. This is an opportunity to improve that part of our lives.

Our founders Dustin and JR started Asana after they saw some internal tools they prototyped at Facebook spread through the company and substantially boost teams' productivity. Since our launch, we've seen tremendously positive response from both press and users.

We've also built some pretty breakthrough web technologies ( http://asana.com/luna ), assembled a best-of-the-best engineering team (including creators of Facebook's News Feed backend, Android's sync, Yelp's ranking algorithm, Aptana's VP Eng, ...), raised $38M in funding (from Benchmark Capital, Marc Andreessen, Peter Thiel, Mitch Kapor, and Sean Parker), built a mature egoless culture, and perhaps most importantly, are earnestly pursuing a vision and opportunity that we believe has great potential for large positive world impact.

See what it's like to work at Asana here: http://qr.ae/IQgg6 and more info on our jobs page: http://asana.com/jobs

San Francisco, CA - Zenbox. Software Engineer. [LOCAL | RELOCATE OK]

We're a YC company wrangling SaaS to work together (as they should), starting by bringing the biggest apps our customers use right into Gmail. We've been growing our team over the past few months, and looking to add even more awesome people.We work with dozens of API's to show our users profiles of their customers without having to jump out of the email flow - imagine having http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtzqRSlgqkw available when helping customers.

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

We also spend time improving our tooling, and tools for other developers. As one example we've recently vastly improved the source-map capabilities of the ClojureScript compiler and added reified keywords to the runtime to make ClojureScript a better citizen on the web. We do it because we want to give back to the communities that have enabled us, because it helps us, and because it's interesting.

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

Boston, MA - full time, internship - engineers


Make a difference, change the world, have fun, do something important.

We're looking for creative hackers and programmers to join our dev team.

Smarterer is doing something unique and important. We're approaching a point where traditional university credentialing isn't enough, skills are changing too quickly and what makes someone effective in a role or job is evolving. New roles appear daily that no (or few) traditional universities have courses for: e.g. growth hacker, social media evangelist, CNC machinist / programmer. People are acquiring more and more skills through non-traditional means. Nascent "education 2.0" initiaitives are exciting, but they still face the problem of measuring and credentialing, especially those that learn online.

How do you show what you know?

Smarterer has created an innovative crowd-sourced testing system and scoring algorithm that allows rapid evolution of content, skill measurment, and question characterization. We've made it fun as well as rigorous, based on modern testing theories.

Putting my money where my mouth is, I've created a software concepts test:


Give it a spin and see how you do. This is the debut of this test so the first few test takers will likely have an advantage. The more people that take the test, the more accurate it becomes. Leave feedback, add questions, share your score!

Smarterer is helping enable a revolution: in the changing job marketplace, in education and learning, and in the way people measure their own skills and share that knowledge.

Our mission: Measure the world's skills

We're funded by Google, True Ventures, as well as some amazing angel investors.

London, UK - full time/part time/internship/flexible.

NBCUniversal - Research Assistant, Data Science & Predictive Analytics. x2

We're no startup. We're the special operations team for the corporate world.

We're hunting for engaging problems and opportunities to create real value for our marketing, sales, and research teams throughout our international businesses (television, movies, news, and home entertainment).

You'll be helping us on a variety of problems - little ones like writing a script to hack a third party's website and collect info on our products, to large ones like creating a model that can show our products value through time. In all cases you'll be working closely with the a senior engineer and either senior corporate management or a business unit in TV, film, or news. A typical week might look like this:

* Meet with the head of sales for a UK TV channel, learn about a problem they're facing trying to get an accurate value for advertisement slots.

* Discuss what you learned with the rest of team. Someone suggests that a nearest-neighbors regression on data from the marketing team might help.

* A senior dev helps you implement the algorithm and a UI for the sales team to use it.

* Spend some time with the sales team to see if it's creating any value, look for improvements.

What we use (We list this to tell you what we're like, not to tell you what languages we expect to see on a CV):

* Racket. We're big fans lisp and functional programming.

* Bash. We create a lot of value with small dirty hacky shell scripts, and we aren't shy about it.

* Whatever gets the job done, and whatever we think might be fun to use. Python, R, Javascript, Hadoop, EC2. We even wrote code in Fortran once (we don't like to talk about it.)

Who we're looking for:

Most importantly, you should be an intelligent problem solver who wants to apply whatever programming and maths knowledge you have to real world problems. We're not fussed about what languages are on your CV.

You have some familiarity with functional programming, machine learning, and linux/bash scripting, and you're eager for a chance to use it on real-world problems with support from other programmers. Given the predictive modeling angle, you're probably studying or have studied maths, stats, or even physics.

These are two assistant/internship positions for students looking for experience while doing their degree. Alternatively, if you can take on several projects in a full time role, please get in touch, too. We're pretty flexible.

Interested? My contact details are in my profile. Get in touch. I'd love to hear from you.

Codecademy - http://www.codecademy.com/jobs - Flatiron District, NYC

We're hiring for several positions in both engineering and design.

I started interning as an engineer here this summer and ended up taking a year of personal leave from school to go full-time for a while. It's a fun product to work on that gets a lot of usage, and a fun team to work with. I've also watched the engineering culture in the team really develop in my short stay. All the engineers are happy here.

Things around here are starting to move really quickly - we're working hard on new products and ramping up our hiring. It's an exciting place to be right now, I'm very happy I decided to stick around for a while.

You can email me at artur@codecademy.com if you have any questions.

Do you ever wish that you could control the physical world as easily as the virtual world? We do. At Oso Technologies we are building Internet-connected devices that can monitor and control the world around you. We're looking for a top-notch Director of Business Development to take the charge in this new position on our team.

As part of our core team, the Director of Business Development will be directly involved with company decisions regarding the development of Osos business strategy including marketing, sales, and product distribution. Your voice will be a major part of what makes our company great in the coming months and years as we grow from a small team to a major technology company.

For the next few months we'll be working to deepen our relationship with the 1,000 people who have backed our Kickstarter campaign and develop a marketing, communications, and business development strategy for future growth. After that we'll be using the skills we have gained as a team to provide creative solutions for new problems and markets.

You are the perfect fit if you are

Curious. You ask more questions than anyone else in the room and you aren't ashamed of it. Self-motivated. In school you were busy working on side projects during lectures. You enjoy being given an open ended task and defining success for yourself.

A problem solver. Bathroom door squeaky and annoying at your last job? You oiled it on your first day. No experience creating an advertising campaign? You taught yourself how to do it in a week. Theres no problem too big or too small for you to tackle.

Word-savvy. You can write a blog post, email a Fortune 500 executive, respond to tweets from customers, adjust a product description, and post on Facebook about last night's shout out from Conan O'Brien without missing a beat. It's happened to us before, and with your skills it is going to happen again.

Motivated. The idea of skipping the corporate ladder and building your own marketing, sales, and business strategy team would be a dream come true.

Fun. It's a startup. We don't really do lame stuff around here if we can help it.

Intelligent. Working with a team of engineers who have more degrees than a thermometer isn't intimidating to you in the least. You're probably better at your job than we are at ours.

Skills/Requirements:- 2-5 years of experience. - Outstanding written and verbal communication skills. - Ability to pay attention to details while simultaneously managing numerous projects. - Familiarity with ad copy writing and creative design. - Active online presence and familiarity with social media (Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Wordpress, etc.).- Customer support experience.

Compensation and benefits: - Competitive salary - Ownership in the company- Paid healthcare allowance- Paid vacation- Allowance for self-directed professional development - Flexible work schedule - Generous bonuses - Yearly company retreat to somewhere cool in the US or abroad

We believe in building quality products quickly and keeping our development process lean. We value personal growth, so our employees have a high degree of autonomy and responsibility.

Concrete Data (www.concretedata.com) - Durham, NC - Local only please

We're a small company (2 partners, 2-3 employees) looking to hire an experienced .NET developer for systems integration and ground-up development projects.

We've built a business around providing modern, user-centric web and mobile applications to replace their aging and clunky desktop programs. Enterprise doesn't have to suck.

Being a small company, you'll be given a lot of autonomy and chances to learn. At a large firm, you may spend a decade contributing your small piece to a vast legacy sourcebase. We start 6 new projects a year. Iterate rapidly and improve your skills.

Inquiries can be sent to me -- adam@concretedata.com

Rinse ( http://www.rinse.com ) - San Francisco, CA

Rinse is a very early-stage startup (we are only 3 people currently) looking to bring technology to the dry-cleaning industry. The industry is ripe for innovation! We're building mobile apps, tackling scheduling and dispatch problems, and scaling a service at over 10% week-on-week growth.

I know 'app for laundry' is a tech clich right now, but we're definitely encountering real demand. The problem is real, and we're solving it.

The team is very strong, with an HBS grad who grew up in a dry-cleaning family heading operations, and a Stanford GSB grad with direct consumer startup experience heading customer acquisition. I'm Stanford CS/EE, have built a few teams at various startups, and am just starting to build the technology and team to support this (very viable) business.

The tech stack is Heroku / Python / Django / Phonegap / JQuery / Backbone / Twilio currently, but obviously there is plenty of opportunity to influence technology decisions early on, and plenty of opportunity to learn new technologies as well. We expect the next couple of hires to own entire new efforts, and have their hands in wide-ranging parts of our entire business.

We're looking for a Web Developer or Front-end Developer to develop interfaces for our customers, tools for our personnel, and visualizations for our managements. Ideally, this person would also have an active role in the design process as well, either leading design or working with our contract designer.

We're also looking for a 'Special Ops Manager' - a 'Swiss-Army Knife' hustler who wants to join a startup on the ground-floor. This person will use the tools we're developing in-house, and be involved in all facets of the business, including operations, marketing, social media, and any other aspect of the business that requires attention on any given day. See job description at https://www.dropbox.com/s/tuhisiywgf7md6u/Rinse%20-%20Specia...

Finally, if anyone in San Francisco is looking to make a few extra dollars part-time, Rinse is hiring part-time Associates to help us deliver clothes. We pay $25 per hour for a handful of hours per week. Perhaps it would be a way for some of you bootstrapping startups to earn a little extra cash? To apply to the Driver / Associate position, fill out this web form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1kWZYu1kg1r8kxdDC9ObKdgQP_1N...

Thank you! Feel free to contact me at sam@rinse.com with questions, comments, or applications.

Luminoso (http://luminoso.com) - Cambridge, MA. Looking for a frontend designer.

We make an analytics and visualization platform for natural language text.

Luminoso can quantify the things you're looking for in a text dataset, and also lets you explore to find the things you didn't know you were looking for. It learns from text in your domain, but it doesn't have to learn from scratch: it starts out knowing what words mean, in many languages, based on ConceptNet (http://conceptnet.media.mit.edu).

As a frontend designer, you'd help us with visual design and user experience, to make it easy for people to upload their text data and get insights from it. This position focuses on design but interacts with the frontend code, so you should be interested in learning (or already know) CoffeeScript and knockout.js.

Fetchnotes - Cambridge, MA. Interns and full-time. We make your notes and to do lists better, not just better organized.

We have a really simple and effective product for keeping track of reminders, ideas, etc., but what I think is really exciting about our business is the R&D we're doing to automate those things or find relevant context/information.

For example, you write down a book you want to look up, and we show you where you can find it. You have a grocery list, we let you know when you're within a block of a store that has those items. The possibilities are endless, and there's just as much product strategy that needs to be determined there as there is code. But we believe that productivity software can do so much more than empower the procrastination they do today.

Looking to add engineers with experience in mobile development (Android in particular), JavaScript (we use Angular, but experience with another framework like Backbone or Ember will suffice), machine learning and natural language processing. As far as NLP goes, we're doing some really unique things that involve more statistics than typical NLP toolkits, so a good stats background will be helpful.

Backed by TechStars Boston and a group of fantastic angel investors and venture capitalists, we're a young, close-knit and energetic team of 6 who believe that simple products, engineered properly, can make a big impact on people's lives. We hang out after work frequently, have dinner together at least weekly, and are genuinely friends (not just co-workers). After big releases, we'll usually take the day off to do something fun like laser tag or kayaking. I believe in hiring people that I want to work with over the course of a career, not just for a particular role today. At the end of every interview I ask myself, "In 10 years, will I regret not having had the opportunity to work with this person?"

Also, we were #2 on Hacker News last year when we accidentally called 2,000 people bitches: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3557813

Sound interesting? Send your Github and a little about yourself to alex@fetchnotes.com. If you want to learn more about us, check out angel.co/fetchnotes or kareer.me/discover/fetchnotes.

Interviewstreet (http://www.interviewstreet.com) - Mountain View & Bangalore, part of YC S2011.

Interviewstreet's recruit product helps companies hire programmers using coding challenges. A ton of top technology companies like Facebook, Amazon, Adobe, Walmart-Labs, Evernote, Box, Quora and many more are our customers and it has proved to be insanely effective (saving ~50-60 hours for every developer hired)

We are a team of 28, well-funded by top-tier investors (YC, Khosla Ventures, Jawed Karim, SV Angel) and are growing really really fast. That statement of fast growth might sound cliched, but our revenue growth graph looks like this (http://linode.interviewstreet.com/rev.png) and we have a ton of enterprise deals in the pipeline! Some of our recent customers include Square, Adobe, Chegg, etc.

While we continue to signup every technology company, we launched a new product (hackerrank.com) to build a community of programmers in different domains of Computer Science - AI, ML, Image processing, security, etc. The is a place to engage every problem solver in the world with an attractive layer on the top - contests, jobs, prizes, office hours (Eg: hackerrank.com/quora) from companies who are our customers already.

How will the company look in 2 years?We will be in a position to have 20-30k technology companies using our recruit product to make their interviewing effective and 100-150k active programmers/day on hackerrank making it effectively a hugely powerful platform to connect programmers with right opportunities (jobs or contests or cash prizes to solve real-world problems or learning a new domain or inventing a new technique to solve a problem and many more) in the fastest way. And when this happens, it will help ship products faster thus accelerating the pace of the world.

It's a tough mission ahead but something that's worth achieving - a mission which can seriously move the world fast. Everyone is so passionate and hardworking that sometimes from an external view, you might find it hard to differentiate a founder from an employee. We are hiring for all the roles - PM, hacker, sales, marketing (hackerrank.com/careers)

E-mail me: vivek [at] interviewstreet if you'd like to know more.

Empirical (ex-MIT PhD/Google, VC-backed) - San Francisco (downtown)

- iOS devs (full-time or consulting)

- Android devs (full-time or consulting)

- Scala devs (consulting)


We're a small shop funded by Floodgate, Greylock, and a few choice angels with a very chill, design-oriented, and highly skilled team.

Even though we're all ex-MIT and overly educated, we only care about skill set and your passion -- not your resum.


We're building a mobile app that will change how we chat/communicate on mobile phones. The vast majority of the Internet including this message is stuck in a paradigm of writing in blank text boxes. This unstructured methodology for communication is pervasive in everything digital and stems from desktops where keyboards make this plausible. On mobile phones, input sucks whether it's typing or speech recognition. Instead, we recognize that many of the types of things we wish text & email are better "app-ified" or "structured," and in doing so we enables lighter-weight communication across individuals & groups with the ability for the phone to intelligently aid in the situation.

We're launching within the next few months....

Rentify - Fulltime - London - Front End Engineer/Designer

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

We don't do deadlines, or assign your day to day work to you, or tell you how to get it done, or make your decisions. You're smart, professional. You don't need us to tell you how to do your job. Of course, we don't mind helping if you get stuck.

Read more about it here: http://engineering.rentify.com/post/47385480838/in-engineers...

And herehttp://www.bufordtaylor.com/post/62455729428/how-we-intervie...

We're all hungry for success.

Okay, now for the normal stuff:


Lead by example - by being proud of your work, talking about how awesome your work is, and then drinking beers with the team about all the great work being done

Design and development of new product features and enhancements

Communicate with non-technical people to define requirements and deliverables

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

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


You ideally have a design background and is equipped to wield Photoshop, Illustrator, whatever tool of choice

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

You can write for the front end of the web stack (html, css, javascript)

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

We're a Rails shop. You don't have to know it, but it's a bonus if you do.

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


Unlimited vacation

Equity in Rentify

Food and drinks available in the office 24/7

Feel free to crush your co-workers on our N64 and pool table.

Our team consists of 14, mostly technical, guys and gals. We have offices in Toronto and Montreal.

* Senior Android Engineer - Our Android app is still new and constantly growing in popularity. * Intermediate/Senior iOS engineer - Half our traffic comes from iOS!* Interactive Designer (UI/UX designer) - looking for someone who can design fun and catchy stuff rather than corporate and boring. Everything design/branding-wise needs to be done. We're running on Bootstrap right now and we're not so proud of it. ;-)

SocialWire - Full-Stack Engineer - San Francisco, CA

Online ads suck. But advertising keeps the web free (as in beer), and we want to keep the internet free. So rather than hating on advertising, we decided to do something about it.

At SocialWire, we are taking a new approach to advertising: building a recommendation engine for ads. Our system generates product-level ads and hyper-targets them to exactly the right audience. We do this at scale and automatically across a retailer's entire catalog. We want our ads to be so good that people discover interesting products through them, and find them to actually be useful.

We're looking for a full-stack engineer to join our small and talented team. As our fifth engineer, you'll have the opportunity to work on and shape all aspects of our product, from backend Python services to slick dashboard features in JavaScript. We work at the intersection of distributed machine learning and data warehousing, we like to experiment and take risks, and our engineers choose what they build. Most features are live in production just hours after they're completed. We push early and often (with testing and code review!). We ask tough questions. We get shit done.

Super sharp team, early stage company, awesome investors, huge opportunity, beautiful office, and interesting engineering/research challenges. Come join us!

If interested, drop me a line at stefan@socialwire.com

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


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

IFTTTs mission is to help people to create connections between the services and devices they use every day. Weve built a system that enables users to set up simple if this, then that-style recipes, which allow activity from one web service to trigger activity in another. The current system supports over 70 unique services and runs nearly a hundred million recipe-handling tasks per day, and we plan to dramatically expand on our flexibility and scalability. Under the hood, this translates to building a platform that can talk to and move data between virtually any API you can think of, all in realtime and at massive scale.

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


Mobile Engineer

Earlier this summer we released our first mobile app, IFTTT for iPhone (https://ifttt.com/mobile). The response has been overwhelmingly positive (Editor's Choice, #1 Productivity). We're looking for talented mobile developers who can help us continue to innovate on iPhone, as well as bringing IFTTT to new platforms (Android, wearable computing, embedded systems, etc).


Platform Engineer

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

Rentlytics, San Francisco, CA (or anywhere else) http://rentlytics.comFULLTIME - Software Engineers

Apartment Investors are overwhelmed and unable to make effective decisions using the data generated by their apartments every day. The status quo is full of siloed data that can only be accessed via outdated web applications which allow their users to download disjointed Excel reports. Rentlytics changes all of this by bringing their data into one place, enabling the asset management team to make better decisions with our analysis tools.

Today, our software provides trend analysis tools to let users discover previously unseen spikes in their utilities, apartment refinishing costs, marketing spend, or any of the 250 other data points we track for each apartment. We need you to come help us build tools that help our users perform complex analysis with the click of a button.

My co-founder Justin was a partner at a private equity firm that invested into apartments across the USA. It is from his frustrations there that our product was born. I built a few large social media analytics tools, mobile games, and a number of analytics tools for other industries. Our engineering team is 3 people right now, we would like to add 2 more people by January 2014.

We use Python/Django for our backend, and Coffeescript with Backbone/Marionette for the frontend application. Experience using these would be great, but is not required.

If you're interested in changing an industry, then we should chat: phil@rentlytics.com

Cloudbill - http://beta.cloudbill.com - Santa Monica, CA

We're a super early stage venture backed startup in Santa Monica looking to change the way bills are paid an managed.

Right now paying bills just sucks, even if you're one of the few Americans who has everything on Auto pay what happens when your credit card expires? Or your wallet gets stolen.

What's worse than that is that our competitors are pushing users towards paying with options that are cheaper for the bill providers! We believe you should be able to pay ANY bill with any method you choose.

So we're making it dead simple to put your mortgage on your credit card and get Amex points for that, your kids' preschool and anything else that you regularly pay.

On top of that we're alerting users to fraudulent charges by scanning every line item of all your bills for anomalies and alerting our users to them.

It's a tough challenge, banks and bill providers don't have API's and in the last three months we've built the technology to be a more full featured version of Yodlee or Intuit's partner program all in house, so our overhead is low, our hopes are high and we're looking for some great people to make paying bills suck so much less.

We're hiring for:

Backend Engineer: Coffeescript and Ruby - We've built two seperate applications. One uses almost entirely coffeescript the other is a rails application

Designer/Frontend: You should be able to at least understand enough haml/erb to implement features in the frontend without hand holding

If you're interested get in touch at jobs [at] cloudbill.com

San FranciscoIntransRuby Engineers, Android Engineers

The last 50 years has seen the reinvention of almost every major industry except for one: Trucking. Intrans is here to change that by deploying the world's first mobile platform for on-demand freight shipping.

Over $30 billion dollars a month is spent trucking freight around the US. Without trucks, the country would grind to a halt overnight. In such a massive market, it's hard to believe that the entire industry today still runs on phones and fax machines. This means hundreds of millions of dollars worth of freight capacity goes unfilled every month due to the old-school inefficiencies of the industry.

We are changing that. We use our location-based technologyto automatically match supply and demand.

If you're ready to transform the trucking industry,send your resume and GitHub profile to jobs@intrans.com.

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

At CircleCI we're building Heroku for Continuous Integration and Deployment. We have traction and revenue and funding and great customers. Our customers love us, because we move quickly 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.

Frontend Engineer - You'll work on improving our customer's experience. Our frontend is a single page javascript app, using HamlCoffee, Less and Knockout.

AMA Capital -- Palo Alto, CA. Full time. H1B okay.

AMA Capital trades billions of dollars per day in the foreign exchange markets.

We are all engineers, and we all do a little bit of everything, designing and implementing our own trading strategies and infrastructure. We are a very small team (I am the only employee) and want to add one or two engineers who will focus on strategy and/or on infrastructure. No experience or specific knowledge of finance is required. However, you do need to be at least interested in financial markets and to be able to implement your strategies carefully in C++.

An example of an infrastructure project is designing and building a system for logging to non-volatile memory. We generate large logs that cover everything from prices to transaction data. NVDIMMs are a form of RAM that survives power loss, and such hardware has been on the horizon for a while, but it is just now becoming available to early adopters. Writes to NVDIMMs will be nearly instantaneous and immediately durable. This project will be to develop an NVDIMM-based system that simultaneously functions as a log, an IPC mechanism, and a searchable database for analysis. Making this work will involve a number of pieces: kernel drivers, CPU cache control, lock-free synchronization, a daemon to write everything back to long-term (i.e. less expensive) storage, and more. If this works well, we plan to open-source all the pieces.

Please visit http://amacapital.net/careers.html to learn more, and, if interested, apply to careers@amacapital.net.

We'll need to optimize regression, graph, and dozens of other statistical algorithms to efficiently handle wildly diverse datasets. Those analyses will sit on a robust data-handling system that finishes analyses before our users even know they need them.

The ideal candidate:

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

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

. Interested in data analysis.

. Very comfortable with Python. Some experience with Clojure is a bonus.

Weft - http://weft.io - Boston MA, San Francisco CA, or the surrounding areas

  ===========================  ====== What we do =========  ===========================
We're Waze for Cargo. Building hardware to put inside of shipping containers so our customers get realtime visibility into their supply chain. We're then taking the info we get from the hardware and figuring out where the bottlenecks in the supply chain are, predicting whether or not a shipment is going to make it to its destination on time, and dynamically rerouting/rescheduling shipments so that we can optimize the system as a whole. Really neat stuff.

  ===========================  ===== How we do it ========  ===========================
Web stack -> clojure (immutant) + HANA (really scary database on crack) -- we use middleman + enlive (and a bit of hiccup) for templating

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

Hardware -> prototyped with arduino, still using atmel uC but no longer arduino-ey. Manufacture-ready. In the process of sourcing for large scale manufacturing. Have some pilots running.

  ===========================  ====== 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).

Looking for help at every point in the system (hardware, firmware, frontend, backend, algorithms, mobile, etc).

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

Emcien - Atlanta, GA

We are looking for a developer with experience developing interfaces using modern js/coffee frontend frameworks.

Emcien develops interfaces into complex graph analyses, visualized in several applications. These are built on D3, backbone, rails, and MySQL, with a few other technologies where they're necessary. (The core science is performed in a C library built, tested, and interfaced with via Ruby FFI).

The environment is developer-focused, and combines the nicer features of an established company (job security, benefits) with the feel of middle-stage startup (tech-focused atmosphere, developer control over process and direction, and an understanding of technical debt).


It can be hard to tell if a company would be a good fit from a job posting - feel free to make conversational contact first. You can reach me at emueller@emcien.com (I'm an engineering lead). I'm happy to answer your questions about the company and culture.

Notting Hill, London, England, U.K.

Our web application is at the heart of our busy e-commerce business; every day it serves millions of product images and handles thousands of purchases, but we can and do update the live site with new code anytime we want without missing a beat. Our systems are written on the LAMP stack and we are migrating to Symfony 2 as our MVC framework. Developers choose the tools that work best for them - for instance, we have a mix of Linux and Mac workstations in the team. We are adopting and adapting agile development techniques such as test-driven development, pair programming, and continuous integration. We hold regular retrospectives to improve our working environment and lightning talks to share cool ideas whether work-related or not. Our developers are generalising specialists whose typical day may include refining an algorithm, writing a tricky integration test, tuning a 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.

Established in London in July 2007, Secretsales.com is one of the UK's leading private shopping clubs, offering limited-time online sales with current name-brand goods at deep discounts. Brands include fashion, beauty, homeware, and lifestyle categories, many familiar from the high street. The company has about 80 employees and a substantial annual turnover. The firm is growing quickly after a recent investment round.

Twitch - Software Engineers - San Francisco, CA

2 years ago the idea of watching live video games online was a crazy notion, now it is big business. We've just raised a new round to continue our scale (http://tcrn.ch/1dSbFH4), which will accelerate even more as we're being shipped in both the xbox one and PS4 this Christmas.

We're looking for smart and passionate engineers to help us get there. We're in the process of incrementally rebuilding our architecture to support the near 50 million MAU we have on our site for hours each and every day. We're using Go (we've found some interesting bugs because of our scale) for large chunks of our new infrastructure. We're incredibly API driven - if you understand the concept of data gravity, you're the right kind of person. If you love creating high quality products, you're the right kind of person.

iOS Engineer - We're looking for an awesome iOS engineer who knows the ins, outs, and annoyances of the iOS platform.We're a venture backed startup (Spark + OATV) that is making reminiscing online fun by taking your digital exhaust (ditial photos, tweets, checkins, etc) and showing you the most interesting things you've done on this day in history.

In an age where we're creating more digital data than ever before, we're trying to take the 90% of stuff that isn't real time and searching for the important signals and making it useful again.

Our stack is mostly Rails with PG (and decommissioning Mongo). As of late, we're adding more and more Go into our stack.As part of the iOS team, you'd be contributing to the iOS efforts on all fronts: making major decisions about how the codebase progresses (libraries, code conventions, etc), major part in hiring, etc. Since we're a small startup, you'd also have a huge amount of input into the product.

We're also looking for junior iOS folks as well!

We've raised $4mm thus far and have got a bunch still in the bank :)

PubNub - http://www.pubnub.com/ - San Francisco, CA

In the future, we will all be speaking Bidirectional JSON.

Become the core part of the largest global real-time network -- the network one that is transacting billions of signals. Our mission is to create the fabric that brings us (people of the net) into the next singularity, a point in time at which humans become ineffective. That of course does not mean our society is lost, as in a dystopian view Rather, think of this opportunity as an effort to achieve a forever-vacation for everyone for the rest of time creating unlimited happiness; and through the power of PubNub we'll convert your typical adventure into to living stardust, where your consciousness will be jettisoned into the infinite cosmos, in an infinite journey of dimensional wonder, and discovery!!!!!

That'd be pretty great as long as we do it in a good way, right? Can you help us achieve this? We need next gen developers who are good at being remarkably insightful into the new future of network paths, BGP routes, TCP packets and Earth Based Topologies and Orchestrations.

Here is our jobs link: http://www.pubnub.com/jobs

We're also keeping an eye on the footprint of data that flows through PubNub, and we have a massively parallel MapReduce system written in Python/PyPy/Gevent/HLL which can process massive amounts of data in a few moments. Yah we use it for big brother type stuff but also for your metering data too so we can bill you.

More onto the future of things to come, we've created essentially the scaffolding which brings us the necessary tooling to create the next singularity. But we still have more to do and we need your help to push us further into future of connectivity. Device-to-device communication is key, and JSON is our language. Also something new is on the way that has been unannounced which kinda annihilates most hindrances for out ultimate goal.

Europe - Manchester | London | HamburgThoughtWorks - Principal Technical Consultant

Our mission is to better humanity through software. We strive to achieve this by delivering disruptive thinking to companies with ambitious missions, keeping technology at the heart of what we do. As a Principal Technical Consultant, you're responsible for creating and implementing cutting-edge technology solutions for our customers whilst driving software excellence to influence and shape the wider software industry as well as our business.

As a Principal Consultant at ThoughtWorks, here's what we'll be looking for you to bring:

- You love coding. Even if your recent roles have taken you away from being as hands-on as you might like, you've no doubt found other ways to keep your coding skills from getting too rusty and we expect that you'll have had exposure to recent technologies. - You have a rich breadth of experience and are equally comfortable talking financial projections or business process modelling as you are advocating for TDD.- You really understand the business context of the challenges that organisations face and distinguish yourself in the way you articulate this with clients to create and deliver robust, scalable, elegant, flexible and relevant software solutions that truly transform industries.- Leadership is not something you do from far away, you get the importance of taking people with you along the journey and are able to influence and coach those around you to orchestrate team success.

As a Principal Consultant at ThoughtWorks, heres what you can do:

- Directly guide the technical strategy for one of the worlds largest airlines. Build out a new capability within ThoughtWorks - perhaps for Mobile, Big Data or DevOps. Explore ways to improve our business relevance for customers. Create and implement an original tech solution to manage high broadcasts for a new live sports coverage. Travel and work on high impact global P3 (pillar 3) projects in locations such as Africa or Ecuador. Deliver the new technology platform for a government agency providing tailored information to the public's needs. Speak at conferences. Influence and shape our client portfolio. Get published.

There's no typical day or engagement for our Principal Consultants. You might spend a few weeks with a new client on a deep technical review or a complete organisational review, helping them to understand the potential that technology has to solve their most pressing problems. On other projects, you might be acting as the architect, leading the design of technical solutions, or perhaps overseeing a programme inception to build a new product. It could be much more about getting stuck into a delivery project where you're equally happy coding and tech leading the team to implement the solution. Whatever your role the team always look to draw on your experience when things get tough and you often handle the difficult client conversations allowing the team to continue building software without undue pressure. You have great relationships with our new business team and work collaboratively to support pre-sales, meet prospective clients and ultimately influence and shape our portfolio of work.

You recognise that building your network is absolutely key to enable you to perform in your role - and you appreciate that it might be tough initially to find your place in our incredibly flat-structured organisation. You'll be drawing on all of your passion for technology, recent hands-on coding experience and knowledge of latest tech and industry best practices to help you gain the respect and credibility of your fellow technologists.

About ThoughtWorks

ThoughtWorks is a software company and community of passionate individuals whose purpose is to revolutionize software design, creation and delivery, while advocating for positive social change. Our clients are people and organizations with ambitious missions; we deliver disruptive thinking and technology to empower them to succeed. In our 20th year, over 2300 ThoughtWorks employees - 'ThoughtWorkers' - are currently serving clients from offices in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, India, Singapore, South Africa, Uganda, Ecuador the U.K., and the U.S.

Our product is built primarily in Java, Scala, Rails and JavaScript, and we use several database technologies. We heavily leverage AWS infrastructure, manage source and issues on GitHub and continuously deploy code to production. In-depth experience with our technology stack is a plus but not a requirement.

Product:ShowKit is a mobile software development kit that turbo charges apps with live communication features in under 30 minutes. Before ShowKit, it would take companies and software engineers months of intensive development to add features like audio/video conferencing, screen sharing, and gesture control to their applications. Our first-to-market gesture control functionality empowers users to tap, swipe, highlight, and fully control another users screen remotely while simultaneously connecting the two users via audio/video conference.

We're one of the fastest-growing sites on the internet, we get 25MM unique visitors per month, we've raised $15m from Andreesen Horowitz, and yet our tech team is only six people.

Anyone who joins us is going to have the best of both worlds, you'll work on a product that millions love and use while getting the experience of being a part of a small team and helping define the culture.


We're a tiny, quick-shipping team. Each of us makes product decisions and owns whole features. We're close and we all enjoy spending time together. Were a small team because were picky about who joins us. We have one of the hardest technical interviews in NYC but if you make it, youre going to be on the best team around.

Our house library includes Metaprogramming in Ruby; Godel, Escher, Bach, an Eternal Golden Braid; POODR; and "Is Justified True Belief Knowledge?".Loving rap is not a prerequisite for working here, though an appreciation osmoses to everyone after a while.


We started Rap Genius in 2009 to explain the meaning of rap lyrics, but the big vision goes beyond music and touches all of text whether it's the Bill of Rights (http://news.rapgenius.com/United-states-congress-the-us-cons...), the Bible (http://news.rapgenius.com/God-10-commandments-lyrics), The Waste Land (http://poetry.rapgenius.com/Ts-eliot-the-waste-land-lyrics), or the Supreme Courts DOMA ruling (http://news.rapgenius.com/The-supreme-court-of-the-united-st...), it's all on Rap Genius (or Poetry Genius, or News Genius, or... you get the idea). One of our favorite recent examples is Junot Diaz's amazing annotations on an excerpt from his own The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao (http://poetry.rapgenius.com/Junot-diaz-the-brief-wondrous-li...).


    * Bomb salary and equityyou won't be taking a pay cut to work here    * We don't count vacation days    * Free meals in the office, free unlimited Seamless, free unlimited Fresh Direct    * Free gym in the building    * We pay your phone bill and when you join we'll upgrade you to the newest iPhone    * Laundry and shower in the office    * Free indoor bike parking    * Free health, dental, and vision benefits    * The deluxe computer setup of your choice

    * Experienced full-stack Rails engineers    * Front-end developers with an eye for design    * iOS devs to help build our upcoming iPhone app
INTERESTED? Hit us up at jobs@rapgenius.com with:

    * Your name and GitHub profile, your Twitter, blog, StackOverflow account,       personal website, etc.     * A cool side project you built, library you've released, or some code that's       impressive    * Something brief about what you like and dislike about the technologies you've used    * Your rsum    * Apply if you live in NYC or are willing to relocate. Our office is in       Williamsburg, and it's awesome.

MarkITx -- Chicago, IL

In just 18 months, weve built the worlds largest B2B exchange for buying and selling IT hardware (anything that goes into a datacenter). Our members include some of the worlds premier financial exchanges, trading firms, data centers and cloud providers. We are bringing transparency and trust to a $350B market that is fragmented to hell and dominated by middlemen ripping off enterprises that dont know the true value of their infrastructure.

Were hiring for several technical and non-technical roles:

* Senior Engineer - build the beating heart of a commodities exchange in the cloud

* Front-end Developer - build the front-end infrastructure of the exchange

* Mobile Developer - bring consumer-level ease and beauty to datacenter management

* Data Scientist - help refine the predictive Kelley Blue Book of IT

* Technical Writer - help us show how and why commoditization will reshape the industry, speed up innovation, save billions and reduce e-waste

Weve raised $3.3MM in funding and pay top of market, plus equity. We are not buying eyeballs in hopes of selling them later. We are attacking massive market inefficiencies and generating extremely healthy margins. We are both riding and driving a huge change in the way IT infrastructure is bought, used and sold.

We're pragmatists, not purists. Weve bought into reality, whatever that might be, not married to our ideas. You'll fit in best if you are as well. Were seasoned veterans with big wins and big, educational losses under our belts. We try to use the right technology for the job, with familiarity being a tie breaker. Were not religious about platforms. Some things we use today: Node.js, ElasticSearch, Asgard, Redis and CouchDB and a slew of AWS services.

If any of that sounds interesting, please email me directly at benblair@markitx.com

Baltimore, MD; Reston, VA; - Videology - FULL TIME, INTERN (H1B maybe if already in US)

Videology Group - http://www.videologygroup.com/

Internet advertising startup looking primarily for server-side Java developers (if your Java is rusty but you're good,drop us a note anyway). I was working for a start-up called LucidMedia Networks (hence the "lmn" in the e-mail address below), which got acquired by Videology. The Baltimore office is a .NET shop, but the Reston office is Java on *nix (Mac for dev, Linux in production, and no plans to use Microsoft anything for development). Our stack is Java on Spring with MySQL and some NoSQL stores on AWS. We have some big projects in the works involving big data and volume as we scale globally and across mediums (video, mobile, etc.). Currently, our Reston platform alone handles 4 billion requests a day.

Contact me directly at sahil_lmn@yahoo.com.

I actually got hired through a HN "Who is Hiring" thread, and I hired an intern through these threads. These things do work!

Our office is walking distance from a metro-rail station on the Silver Line, opening for service in a few months.

We're a well-funded, 40-person startup making and publishing AAA games for browser and mobile. We're making real games for a large audience. Not ultra casual, not too niche-y.

Our first title is KingsRoad, a cooperative multiplayer 3D action-RPG. Think Diablo for browser/tablet. But free-to-play, and no big download.

Our second title is Ballistic, a first-person shooter for browser and tablet. It's in closed beta currently, so ping me if you'd like to check it out. In the meantime, here's a trailer from 6 months ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9D3CHKbBDtY

We're also working on a third title, a sort of LoL meets PvZ. Come by the office to take it for a test drive!

Rumble is backed by Google Ventures, Khosla Ventures, and Korean gaming company Nexon. We have one of the strongest founding teams the gaming industry has ever seen: https://www.rumblegames.com/about/our-team

We're both a developer and publisher of games, and we need help on both sides. If you want to develop the next generation of top-quality games, or you want to build and scale infrastructure to 1mm+ concurrent players, this is for you.

Positions: https://www.rumblegames.com/careers (contact me directly if something isn't listed)


* Platform -- Groovy/Grails/Java/AWS (especially Senior and Architect/Lead/VP)

* Ops -- Chef/AWS/Hybrid/Docker?/Mesos+Marathon? (especially DevOps Lead)

Learning Objects- http://http://www.learningobjects.com/ - Washington, DC

Who the heck are we?

Are you in to disruptive innovation? Fired up to transform education? Join our growing team.

Were a scrappy, fast-growing startup, owner-operated, and privately held. Were in Chinatown, not Herndon, so you can sell your car and walk to work. Choose your Friday happy hour specialty. Choices include: Rock Band, karaoke, and foosball.

If you're relentless and resourceful, a lifelong learner, a major contributor, and ready to change the status quo, we want to talk to you.

What would you do?

You've got years of Java experience, and have built some pretty slick web apps. HTML, CSS, Javascript: you've got it. And yet you feel like you're being held back. Your old job is still stuck in the 2000's. You're sick of Struts, sick of Spring, sick of JSP and think "I could build a better web framework than this". You post your personal projects to GitHub when you get the time to do something cool, but it's not as much as you'd like.

And then you see this post. And you think: Who would do that? Who would have 10% time projects, and happy hours every Friday? Who would have an office dog and a ping-pong table?

Here come the specs:

You will:

* Design, implement and test new features using a variety of the latest technologies under our customized version of the agile development methodology

* Contribute across the technology stack, from the interactive web and mobile front-end to the clustered object-oriented application layer to the back-end databaseYou bring:

* Minimum two years development experience (if you have more we will pay for it so don't be afraid to apply) * Proficiency with Java 5 * 1 year experience developing interactive web applications using AJAX * Proficiency with JavaScript, CSS, and HTML * Familiarity with agile development processes * Strong communication skills (youll work directly with clients) * Interest in being involved in the UI design process * Experience with jQuery or AngularJS is a plus

Chango - https://www.chango.com/about/careers - Toronto, ON

We are hiring for quite a few engineering and non-engineering positions, but I would like to highlight the roles available on Chango's Large Scale Data team where we have two open positions for intermediate/senior software engineers.

At Chango, we process 20 billion or so unique data points per day, and are trying to minimize the latency between times when we collect the data and make it available for the real-time distributed systems that need to use it.

We use traditional SQL databases (Postgresql), columnar data warehouses (Vertica), networked/local key/value stores (AeroSpike, KyotoCabinet, LMDB, memcache), as well as a many node petabyte scale map/reduce cluster (Disco/DDFS).

You will be programming in Python, Cython and C with forays into Go and Erlang. You are comfortable with your code running on 100s of nodes in multiple data centres. You have solid knowledge of Linux internals and tools, networking, disk, cache and memory subsystems as well as techniques to measure and optimize all of the above.

You have thorough familiarity with relational technology/theory, ACID, transaction processing, networked and local key/values stores, data warehousing and columnar databases. You should have experience with map/reduce and distributed file systems (Hadoop/HDFS, Disco/DDFS).

You have a firm understanding of the various and sometimes exotic data structures and algorithms used for processing large data sets. You will use bloom filters, hyperloglog, skip lists, b+ trees, prefix tries, hashing in all it's multitudinous forms, MVCC, two-phase commit, data compression/encoding, etc.

You are familiar with and are eager to build distributed systems. You are familiar with shared-nothing architectures, replication, fault tolerance, queueing, messaging models, CAP theorem, and distributed locking.

Competitive salary, equity and benefits.

Square NYChttps://squareup.com/---

Square! In October 2012, we acquired the design firm 80/20 and have had New York based colleagues for some time now. Our logical next step was to bootstrap a NYC Engineering presence to tap in the growing community here. We just started building the Engineering team in July.

As a company, we have four main focuses.

Go international. We're adapting what made us successful in the US abroad. This is harder than typical international plays since it requires translating our four major benefits to small merchants: 1. Shipping readers, 2. Card payments (physical world is much more complex than online), 3. Sending money quickly to our merchants, a.k.a. settlement: very localized and next-day is hard on a number of fronts), 4. Assessing risk of merchants as they sign up, aka underwriting: again, very localized most countries do have FICO scores, SSN, D&B numbers and such.

Move up market. One of the biggest success of Square is to have enabled merchants who were "non-consumers" to start accepting credit cards. In classic disruptor fashion, we have essentially alonged the long tail. We haven't been eating someone else's lunch, we've created a whole new category! Now it's time to move up to bigger merchants.

The other side of the counter. With Wallet, Square Market (http://squareup.com/market) and Square Cash (http://squareup.com/cash), we're going on the other side of the counter and interacting directly with consumers. We think that we can provide the best experience for consumer-to-merchant and consumer-to-consumer commerce. We're at the infancy, but extremely well positioned to succeed.

Data as product. We're leveraging our data. We know a lot about our merchants: daily sales, seasonality, growth of their business, correlation with other events (e.g. Mapping Square Payments During the Super Bowl). Lots of innovative products are in the making which will highlight the breadth of what we do.

In NYC, we're starting with a focus on infrastructure, distributed systems, and money moving systems. We're a small team, located in SoHo, and defining the culture of engineering for Square on the East Coast.

If you're interested; I'd love to chat. Shoot me an e-mail with your resume! wkm@squareup.com

London, UK - Wigwamm, apps to make Real Estate simple


Tech team and funding in place. We have great domain expertise, but I am personally missing the influence of a strong co-founder.

If you're interested, just say hi at +44 77 952 73 552 or rayhan@wigwamm.com

There is plenty of effort toward making the Real Estate searching experience better.

But the underlying data sucks. So our first product is a Listing App that helps answer the questions people genuinely ask when looking for a new home: http://wigwamm.com

Real Estate is the only thing you cannot confidently research and transact online. We want to change that, by innovating in the gaps (like property data and price discovery).

Some of our prototypes:

Listing App- http://wigwamm.co.uk

Property descriptions- http://Proppycock.com

New property browsing UI- http://map.wigwamm.com

An auction for rental property- http://old.wigwamm.com

Chatham Financial (Kennett Square, PA) - Full time http://www.chathamfinancial.com

We've got an awesome developer culture going inside of this financial company (~150 tech people). You can email our HR rep[1], or me[2] with your resume and a few words of what you're looking for.

If you're interested in .Net development using the latest technologies, and pushing our architecture forward, then this is probably a place you want to work. We do use other techs where it's appropriate (or for internal or fun projects), such as last week when I worked on a Golang webapp. We have quarterly Hack Weeks, which gives us a chance to explore self-driven projects that make sense for the business.

Below are the open positions, but if you're a passionate and qualified guy/gal, don't hesitate to see where you might fit into our team!

* Web developer - You get to take the process from the data and service design all the way to the implementation of the UI, but you'll need to be well versed in some aspect of web development (MVC/JS/CSS/etc).

* Models developer - Same thing as the web developer, but you'll need a passion for services, and the technologies that it entails.

* Test automation developer - We have been pushing the limits of HP's BPT software suite for years now, so we have been building our own services testing framework (one of the goals of which is to open source it). The test team supports all the development we do, at approximately a 2devs:1tester ratio.

* DBA - Our Data Team is lean and the individuals on the team wear many hats. Our daily responsibilities include everything from TSQL data access performance optimization, to automating SQL Server and Windows with PowerShell, to working closely with software developers and business leads to create High-quality data solutions.

We work on a wide range of interesting projects, most of which are directed towards identifying the causes of and curing diseases.

Pac Global Insurance Brokerage, Inc - REMOTE or Los Angeles, CA

Full stack Rails developer.

This is a somewhat unique position for the hiring thread. We're looking for someone to take over the development of our website and related back office tools. You would be a one man show working closely with our Operations Manager and have lots of control with respect to scheduling and the technologies we use. Our existing contractors are HN readers (they're the ones helping us make this post). We're looking to take someone on full time. They've used modern tools/frameworks and kept the code base in good order. The point is this: you'll be taking over a well maintained project... not walking into a nightmare.

We think this is a good opportunity for someone who would like to work solo but also be secure in a full-time position.

Seattle, WA - ExtraHop Networks - Software Engineers, Testing Engineers, Support Engineers, Sales Engineers, and more.

ExtraHop is a ~6 year old, fast growing startup building network appliances for application analysis. Think HTTP/DB/memcache/NAS/etc processing times for all the servers in a datacenter, all by passively watching the network.

I'm a software engineer at ExtraHop and here's why I love my job:

1. The team is amazing and everyone makes a difference. The two founders, Jesse and Raja, designed and built BigIP v9 when they were at F5 Networks before founding ExtraHop, and are still very much involved in engineering. It's a great working environment and we have a lot of fun.

2. Hard problems at all levels. We parse a bunch of different protocols at 20Gbps by writing high-performance multithreaded C and our own linux kernel drivers. Our datastore handles 200,000 inserts a second with 10MB/s of data. Our UI has a ton of charts and tables, with data going through django and tornado. We use python, C, javascript, flex (slowly moving to a new UI with html5 + javascript), and a modified yacc+bison for some of our protocol parsers. You can hack anything from C to the front-end design and anywhere in between.

3. Our customers love it. It's awesome to see problems diagnosed and solved with our box.

Our Mission: Make the web work for real estate.Bridging the gap between real estate professionals and their clients.

Real estate is the largest industry in the world. Its also one of the most importantafter all, everyone needs a place to live. Millions of consumers are looking for their next home online, and they expect the same kind of browsing and buying experience they get on sites like Amazon and Facebook.

Unfortunately, real estate agents are struggling to provide that experience. Thats where Placester comes in. Were creating an industry where it's quick and simple for real estate professionals to get their information on the web.

Dont let that simple description fool you. Were addressing the hardest problem in the largest industry in the world. As you might have guessed, not everything is written on the home page yet.

Our Culture: Team.Join the team that makes a difference in a big, complex industry.Our culture is all about teamwork. That being said, we're composed of folks who are their own brand of brilliant, focused, fun, intense, and friendly. If you've ever worked on a high performing team you've experienced this mix before.

Youll be expected to get things done and be responsible for making it happen, without any bureaucratical mess. Youll be expected to identify problems and solve them on your own. But more importantly, you may need to rally a friend or team to overcome them. Both are key tools on your belt.

Youll be expected to have an opinion because it will matter when shaping the outcome of your company. Opinions are about courage: to speak your mind and to change it.

Everyone laughs a lot over lunch. Topics range from the standard technical, tactical and whos-doing-what in the start up world; but they also weave through topics like the proper structure for the US debt, that great restaurant down the street or how to Sous-vide the perfect piece of meat. Brilliance isnt one-dimensional.

Theres a local coffee shop that often serves as the perfect distance for discussing a hard problem. We deal with a lot of hard problems and really like great coffee. Its a bit of a chicken-and-egg problem itself which is a good reason to take a walk and discuss it over a cup.

Senior Software Engineer (Ruby on Rails Expert) - Indianapolis, IN

OurHealth is an entrepreneurial company based out of downtown Indianapolis. We provide on-site clinics to mid to large size organizations and are seeking to change healthcare. Join us!

Our primary objective over the next year is to deliver 2 closely related applications. One has not been started, and is a rewrite of an existing system, the other has been started. Both, we have slated to be written in Ruby on Rails (using a yet to be determined mix of UI techniques that include but arent limited to jQuery, CSS3, HTML5, SASS, HAML, and possibly some UI framework such as AngularJS, Backbone, Ember, etc).

The reason for the other technologies is because of legacy systems we are sun-setting (.Net applications), and future technologies we have evaluated, but arent at the moment utilizing (Python, NodeJS, etc).

Ideally, a senior with a diverse background that has focused on Rails for the past few years, but is open and willing to change, and bonus points for one that is either active in the open source community (codes not only for work, but for fun) and/or has a touch of entrepreneurial/change-the-world spirit.

las vegas, nvzappos IP inc. is hiring for several tech related positions: http://about.zappos.com/jobs/jobs-zappos-family/search-open-...

three years ago i decided to come work at zappos after reading tony hseih's book "delivering happiness: a path to profits, passion and purpose" with my wife. we had a couple of job offers at that time and the book convinced me that zappos is where i should go. the focus on customer and employee happiness seemed almost too good to be true and something that was not even approached at any other company i've been with in ~20 years.

i have to admit that for the first year i experienced all the awesomeness that i had read about, but i was also waiting for the other shoe to drop. i really didn't believe it could be as good as i was experiencing.

then i finally realized there was no other shoe. the thing that really drove the point home to me was when i overheard a tech VP and the CTO talking about the valve entertainment employee handbook that was posted online. the handbook explained a corporate structure that was so flat that people had no direct reports and there was no managers telling people what to do.

any other leadership in any other company i had been with would have just scoffed at the idea and dismissed it as internet fluff. these guys were talking about it and asking questions like "how do you think they make something like that work?"

just the fact that they were having a discussion about it made me realize they are different, but i really didn't expect anything to be done about it. it IS a radical idea after all and would likely only work with very specific organizations (or so i thought). now, 1.5 years later we are instituting a new radical management structure focused around self organization and a flat management model.

this tells me that the focus on constant improvement and intrepid company building goes all the way to the top.

and that's just part of the awesome experience here. i could go on and on and on.

Counsyl | S. San Francisco | Full Stack & Web Developers

We've invented the Counsyl Test, a breakthrough diagnostic intended for parents planning to start a family. The test won the Wall Street Journal Innovation Award for Medicine, was named one of Scientific American's "Top 10 World Changing Ideas," and was featured in the New York Times. Our test is now prescribed by physicians for more than 2.5% of all births in the United States.

The cost of sequencing human genomes is plunging - over 5x faster than the cost of computing; the potential impact on preventive healthcare and the medical landscape is boundless. The science is there but the scale isn't. That's where Counsyl comes in. We are building the technology platform to make genomics useful and accessible to everyone.The vast majority of our operations are powered by our own custom-built infrastructure on a Python/Django/Postgres stack, from ordering to lab processing to billing. Were building new tools, new workflows, and new infrastructure to solve the challenging problems of a technology startup involved with not just bits, but also interconnected physical components like lab robotics and patient samples.

Codified Genomics - Houston TXcodifiedgenomics.com

The software you write at Codified will influence healthcare decisions for thousands of patients. We do clinical genomic variant analysis. We take exome sequence data and predict clinical outcome for the variants we observe in patients, which is then used by clinicians to inform diagnosis. To do this, we aggregate large amounts of additional data on individual genes and variants, and apply a series of proprietary algorithms.

We're growing our software engineering team. At Codified your responsibilities will be wide - you will probably end up touching every piece of software we write, with an emphasis on the user facing applications. We are currently using GWT and MySQL with some scripting in Python. Successful candidates will be productive with Java and comfortable working in a Linux environment.

We have a large number of interesting projects under active development, spanning natural language processing, machine learning, user interface design and of course sequence analysis.

A willingness to learn is more important to us than a Biology background, but the job will require you to learn the basics of the Biology that we're working with.

Preference will be shown to candidates in the Houston area.

We (https://www.quovo.com) are a well-funded financial technology start-up based in New York City. We're a small, fun team dedicated to revolutionizing the investment management industry.

You should have some degree of full-stack experience, but the majority of our application work is front-end-ish, focusing on JavaScript -- in particular jQuery, D3, and Angular.js. Bootstrap and LESS experience is also nice.

Not strictly computer science - but the one textbook that I really liked from my computer engineering degree was "Computer Organization and Design: The Hardware/Software Interface" (http://www.amazon.com/Computer-Organization-Design-Fourth-Ed...). It was surprisingly readable and easy to follow. It covers the design of a MIPS processor from the ground up (ALU, caches, memory, pipelining, etc) and also is self-aware enough to not pretend that x86/ARM don't exist.

Didn't even have to think about this one: Eloquent Javascript, by Marijn Haverbeke. He's an amazing writer and a brilliant all-around guy. Technically it's geared toward new programmers, but it's worth a read at pretty much any level.

You can find it free online here: https://eloquentjavascript.net/ or buy a print version here: http://nostarch.com/ejs.

(Full disclosure: I'm listed as the editor on the print version, though in this case my job basically consisted of nodding as chapters came in and saying, "Yup, that's a damn good book.")

vergeman 4 hours ago 1 reply      
I suppose it depends on your approach - my two cents - is your book . . .

a. geared toward programming / learning a language? I've been surprised, given the sparsity, the efficacy of a "showing-by-example" style of writing seen in the Apache Thrift documentation. K&R (to me) is decent for language acquisition, but even more useful as a quick "how did they do that again" refresher. I've found "Linux Kernel Development" (Love) as a very nice book blending concepts with programmatic examples. So the above is maybe a spectrum within this style of writing that I've found helpful.

b. a more "textbook" / algorithmic approach? I remember thinking "Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach" (Kurose, Ross) was one of the lighter texts that didn't necessarily feel "textbook." "Introduction to Information Retrieval" (Manning, Raghavan, Schutze) also comes to mind, but more academic.

I think it's more effort for companies to manage it so in general they don't offer it.

I have seen people negotiate a 4-day week, and take a 20% pay cut. In the end, their job didn't really change, so they were paid 20% less and either worked relatively harder than others for less pay, or underperformed relatively to others, so their career stalled and bonus was reduced.

As a founder and employer of a small team I can tell you that this is more complicated than it may look from the employee side. Consider that health care costs, equipment costs, office space, etc.. don't go down by 20% even though your days/week did. Investing in people who will be _motivated_ is one of the most important things a company does.

Besides freelancing, I think your best bet is taking a normal 40-50 hour/wk job, making yourself indispensable (which takes some time) and then negotiating a 4 day week with a commensurate salary cut. I've seen it done, but you really have to sell it to management and convince them your productivity won't decline (don't emphasize your side projects, etc).

They used to be, and still can be -- if you have a bad investor who wants to play hardball (hint: don't play that game). It doesn't take much to run up $10k in legal fees if you have a problematic negotiation.

That said, there are a lot of resources out there now (convertible note generators, "standardized" series AA paperwork, etc.) that can lower this cost substantially if you try. Wilson Sonsini has a note term sheet generator [1], and there are probably others.

Also, keep in mind that many reputable, startup-savvy lawyers will work on a deferred fee for this kind of thing. You can also negotiate prices for simple contract reviews.

There are several alternatives to paying expensive lawyers for what should be a very simple deal. The best two in my (non-lawyer) opinion:

* Fenwick and West (Prominent SV law firm) have posted their version of startup docs on GitHub - http://venturebeat.com/2013/03/06/fenwick-west-github/

Just get your investors to agree to a standard, simple deal and everyone will be better off.

I feel like this isn't asking the right question. The answers you're going to get are going to be a combination of a) people's perception of what Rails and Django can do and b) people's perception of what the future of the web.

So, let's first look at what Rails and Django can do. Ruby and Python are both slow languages compared to Java, Go, C, and even JavaScript (thanks to companies pouring a lot of work into it). However, computing power is increasing. In the Ruby and Rails world, there has been good work on JRuby, Puma, etc. to help concurrency and move away from the process-based concurrency model. I'm less familiar with Django here, but Python does have frameworks built for concurrency.

Now let's look at Node.js, Java, and Go. All three have good support for handling multiple connections within the same process (via. eventing, threading, and goroutines). Rather than taking up a process per connection, they just add a little bit of RAM overhead and get to stay in the same memory space with cheaper context switching (or none in an evented system). That deals well with long-running processes that would otherwise block a process, tie up RAM, etc.

So, Rails is improving its support for running in a threaded environment and while I don't know as much about Django, Python does have other options addressing this issue. But as it stands today, alternatives have a speed advantage and somewhat by-default operate in a better way for concurrency.

Now, if we're looking toward the future, what do we need this for? We don't need this for things like serving CRUD. If you're trying to keep lots of connections for a chat application waiting for a response, that can be better served by alternatives. However, it should be noted that 37signals does chat via Rails. When thinking about the future, you should think about what is happening in the application and how that affects things like context switching, RAM usage, etc. I don't want to predict the future. If you want to, think about how applications may work that would be better served by systems that don't rely on process-based concurrency.

As some unsolicited closing advice, I find that a lot of people spend an inordinate amount of time worrying over their tools. They want to pick the one set of tools that will last for eternity. Just as your laptop will age and be replaced, the code you write will. Obsessing over tools keeps many from doing anything. There's a lot of low hanging fruit. I'm guessing you see things you want to build - things you could improve upon. Don't worry about having to modify, extend, and do things differently in the future if it's keeping you from doing anything today. Tools are just that: tools. They aren't your product. They're meaningful. Using a better tool is more enjoyable and can create a better outcome. But don't obsess about it trying to guess the future and insulate yourself from future work. Build!

Note, I'm a complete newbie. I spent 12 months doing a Django job, and started a Rails job about ~4 months ago. Before that I followed frameworks but wasn't nearly as engaged.

The impression I get, is that in general, these languages and frameworks will age, get boring, and eventually be something used because of legacy, the existing codebases. Is this bad? Of course not! It means there will always be a wealth of well-documented, high quality software to work with.

But really, the only way to fight off not being 'boring' is by trying to always do the brand new technologies, always having a way of implementing them. Rails with Turbolinks, to pseudo-mimic frontend JS frameworks. Rails also implementing server side events, moving web sockets closer to 'the norm'.

Will they still be the hot go-to languages/frameworks 5-10 years from now? Probably not. Rails will probably feel then like PHP does now('old and safe', with better options available for most cases), and something like Go or some other incredibly thin means of maintaining a backend API to facilitate frontend Javascript frameworks. And after that, who knows. Maybe the web as pages will die 10-15 years from now, instead being replaced by something more akin to a pluggable game or OS engine. Maybe holograms. Maybe we just get robots and call it a day.

I enjoy the Indeed.com job trends for this sort of thing: http://www.indeed.com/jobtrends?q=ruby%2C+python%2C+php%2C+n...

I'm a Ruby/Rails developer (and I run MemphisRuby) and while I seriously enjoy working with Rails I don't expect it to be as popular ten years from now.

Rails is still tremendously good at what it does and I don't think it's likely that another framework or language is going to beat it at its own game. The real question is whether or not the things that Rails does best will continue to be important in the marketplace.

We've already seen parts of Rails's core competencies carved out by other tools: Erlang/Node/Go enable saner async programming. Backbone/Angular/Ember enable rich web applications. Scala/Clojure/Go/etc. on the "fast compiled backend services" front. Even PHP is keeping pace with the times (Composer, Laravel) just enough to keep its adherents from having a real reason to jump ship.

Ruby and Rails are still pretty much as good as it gets for rapid development of web applications (the backend parts of MVC, anyway), and there's a growing Ruby niche for configuration management (Chef, Puppet, etc).

Personally I find my investment in learning and working with Ruby has been a great way for me to experience a much wider variety of technologies and architectures than I would have otherwise. Thanks to Rails work I've learned tons about AMQP, Postgres, Chef, Backbone, JavaScript, CSS, Ansible, DNS (bind), and more that I just wouldn't have had the same exposure to in a slower-paced development environment.

Your ending line about "still in wide use but not frequently selected for the best new projects" is a bit complicated. Certainly any language stays in wide use once it falls out of fashion and its projects categorically move to the "legacy" phase, but "best new projects" is a bit much. A lot of what we might think of as the 'best' projects are driven by fashion just as much as technical merits.

Rails and Django have moved from the obscure into the mainstream. 5 years ago if you wanted to hire a Django developer it was pretty hard. It's still way harder to find Django developers compared to PHP devs.

As a company, if you push yourself into a corner with newer tech like Node, Meteor, etc. you may come up against hiring issues. Not only that, but Rails and Django are also evolving with time so they too get better with time.

The "age" of a technology isn't the only reason why it gets selected, it gets selected because of a number of factors including features, programmer availability, programmer expenses (in terms of both time and skill), proven track record, etc. Usually age is a plus point in many ways.

Rails and Django will certainly be around and competitive. However, if you're asking from a programmer salary perspective then yes, there will be many more Rails and Django programmers by 2016, so moving into more edgy tech might give you a USP, but you may also end up without a place to work in. Maybe knowing Rails/Django + "shiny new tech" is a better combo ?

Yes and no. I think:

1) Rails (I don't know Django) will continue to be the quickest way to have a quick full-stack demo/MVP. It is opinionated, and has tools like railsapps that let you customize it. So you can have a solution that includes bootstrap, authentication, stripe-payments, etc., almost completely out of the box.

2) Rails will continue to be plagued with the problems (security, slow dynamic language) etc. but it will always have workarounds like jruby, celluloid, rails-api, in-memory-models (I wish this was more common). The community is vibrant enough to keep plugging along and fixing the gaps.

3) I don't think it's a coincidence that the two most influential frameworks (Rails and Sinatra) were written in Ruby.

4) Eventually people's MVP will move to something like Scala, following the example of Twitter and LinkedIn. Static languages that encourage functional behavior improve speed and safety.

5) Play is interesting. I am checking it out now, and seeing how I can move a rails app to it.

6) Node serves the lowest-common-denominator in my opinion (it caters to non-polyglots). I use it for certain things (a workflow for prototyping phonegap apps, and client-side tooling) but I personally think it is way overhyped. However it definitely has a place, and will continue to have one.

7) If Rails does someday "die" that's okay for dhh's legacy. His framework is spiritually part of whatever comes next and raised the bar as much as Seinfeld did for television.

Frameworks evolve and adapt to changing needs. But they try to stick to their core design philosophies. Django's philosophy is quite general[1] and might stand the test of time.

Some of the reasons Rails and Django might fall into legacy could be the due to the underlying language itself. If Python continues to be affected by GIL related multiprogramming issues or lack of stronger types, then the associated web frameworks like Django would also be affected. Then there are always non-technical factors like hype and community interest.

Currently, Rails and Django have crossed a certain critical mass in adoption, they are effective for a majority of web programming usecases and have a thriving third party developer community. So my guess is that it would be pretty much a solid choice in 2016 as well.

etchalon 6 hours ago 4 replies      
Play doesn't belong in that list (it's really just a Java-version of the basic request/response cycle design that plagues Django and Rails, Scala or not).

Django is sadly hampered by two fairly complex problems. The first, is their insistence on backwards compatibility and stability. While it's becoming obvious that the basic design of Django creates serious problems when moving away from the request/response cycle, it's a very hard problem to fix if you can't fundamentally change core assumptions within the framework. Second, Python 3 (sans Tulip) just isn't up to snuff for asynchronous coding. Twisted is a mess, Tornado is far too simple.

The Rails team seems more willing to break with the past between releases, but its still hampered by Ruby's inherent performance disadvantages.

Ultimately, while none of these frameworks are disappearing any time soon, it'd be fair to say that many engineers, particularly those working at the edge of the industry, are choosing things like Node, or Go.

bayesianhorse 5 hours ago 0 replies      
I don't see anything "in the pipeline" which would be able to compete with Django in its core domain. Not even Rails, whose main advantage over Django are larger adoption and some better tooling (IMHO).

Certainly not Node.js. The tooling isn't there yet, the javascript language is still a barrier for maintainable code and the asynchronous model as a default comes with very high complexity costs.

Play requires Scala, and I just don't see typical web folks switch to Scala (an otherwise great language) in droves.

Clojure? Really? Yes, Lisp is great. But it's not going to get popular in 2 years and it seems to require some intellectual fortitude that is probably harder to find on the job market than Django talent.

I've said this before here, but to me Django occupies a very different place from a lot of the more recently developed frameworks. And as lame as it sounds, a big part of it is in the large, complicated content-heavy site (go figure, it was developed in a newspaper environment).

Sure, Django can be used to build single page sites and flow-heavy web apps. But that's not its strength. Just as you end up having to do a lot of custom programming to make Meteor or Node/Derby work for a site with 15 different content types and multiple backend administrators, but that's not their strength.

I think one notable thing to observe with any of these frameworks is that backends as REST APIs with a javascript heavy front end are becoming more common.

Many of these frameworks won't disappear but I think adapt to the newer trends.

Whether we like it or not java is still here and used, I don't see why rails and django won't be.

The whole point of software is it evolves. These projects both have enough of a following to receive updates to fit those new paradigms.

They may not be as suited for something built from the ground up for that specific use case, but that doesn't mean they will disappear.

Play is not "beyond" Rails, it is merely an other community (Java/Scala) that catches up with Rails.

Node.js is a joke, I see more and more people "get it". It sure serves a purpose, but the language not being for general purpose, the syntactical problems of JS and the single-trick concurrency model don't make it fit for true disruption.

Meteor might be a contender for "next level" (currently it is build on Node i think, but that might change one day), I also consider Yesod (Haskell) and some of the web stuff on Clojure to be good contenders.

I think it will not be merely a new FW that changes the scene, I expect it to be a new language along with that.

It's worth noting that Rails has adapted to compete with alternative Ruby frameworks that arose to deal with Rails issues (both general and specific use cases), and has merged with one of the alternatives. Insofar as either Ruby the language or the main Ruby implementation are issues holding Rails back, both have evolved considerably and continue to, and several alternative implementations capable of hosting Rails have developed.

Rails has quite a bit of life left. Sure, with more choices of frameworks available, there'll be fewer cases where it's the only viable choice for a project, but it will be competitive for some time.

k1w1 5 hours ago 1 reply      
I think that Rails has a lot of life left because it be influenced by the new techniques that are being pioneered in other frameworks. In the same way that Rails inspired frameworks in other languages - new technologies like node and meteor can inspire Rails too.

For example, at aha.io we use Rails, and wanted to get the front-end performance of a Javascript-heavy app, but by taking advantage of what we know (which is writing ActiveRecord models, Rails controllers and ERB views). So we borrowed a technique from Meteor and made our views reactive - using Rails for the view rendering. That way we get the best of both worlds: the code only needs to be written once in Ruby, but the performance and reactivity is like an app that has a Javascript front-end.

This is just one example, but there lots of similar examples (think about the increasing use of functional programming styles). The incredibly rich ecosystem around Rails means that stuff just gets done faster - the ecosystem has done most of the work for you. Apart from Django, every other framework is still playing catchup.

apphrase 6 hours ago 0 replies      
The framework choice is not an independent evaluation, you have to take into consideration the accumulated experience level of prospective engineers you can grab within your reach. That's why actually all of the mentioned frameworks will be alive and going. It is increasingly hard to go exotic, if you are thinking of growth and agility. Otherwise you can paint yourself into a corner where recruitment is impossible and a big rewrite is inevitable.

What is the perspective of longtime PHP/Wordpress/Drupal developers on this? I've done WP and Drupal briefly before doing Rails, basically all the time. But since then I've also built things in Sinatra and JS frameworks, too.

For awhile, I didn't touch Rails but went back to it and was pleasantly surprised that even though I enjoyed using Sinatra and Padrino, the weight that Rails's magic adds is counter-balanced by convenience that is most welcome to developers.

I contrast this with Drupal/Wordpress, in which the version upgrades make the platforms easier to build out for clients, but not much easier to develop for, in terms of either developing plugins or customizing the install (not sure with Drupal, I quit at around v5).

To me, it seems like Rails is adding some things I may never use, but those things seem to be optional...And from 3 to 4, they did cut back on some magic-hacks, such as the magic-finders that were too susceptible to security flaws.

I think a big part of why Rails may have better longevity than previous uber-platforms is because of its focus on testing. So it's quite feasible that Rails can always adapt (by being more modular) without causing unmitigated chaos in the developer ecosystem.

Prgmr.com is a small company that primarily rents virtual private servers[1] We owe our customers upgrades, thus... we really need quite a lot of ram. Around five terabytes of reg. ecc ddr3, to be exact. And some servers and hard drives, too, of course.

I think the quickest way to obtain the aformentioned capital goods is to rent myself out as a sysadmin.

I'm valuing myself at no less than $100/hr, but I'm okay with flat-rate jobs, too. Hell, for a monthly retainer, I'll put your site on my pager. For a larger monthly retainer, I'll make a live copy of your site and host it on my hardware.

Me? I have more than a decade of systems administration experience. I wrote a book about xen[2] Most of my experience is with Linux, but I also have many years of FreeBSD. (now, a lot of that was FreeBSD 4, 5, and 6, but hey, I was using VIMAGE/Jails back in the freebsd 4 days; a lot of this stuff is still relevant.)

I'm an especially good choice if you want to own your own hardware; I've got lots of experience dealing with a lot of physical servers. I have seen... about every problem with pxe that can occur. My networking skills are also pretty okay; I can handle most reasonable BGP configurations.

Prgmr.com has 3 full-time employees, counting myself, and a handful of contractors. Most of them are remote. If you need their skillsets, we can talk about that, too, but I'm primarily looking to rent myself out.

In a perfect world, work would slowly ramp-up over a month or so, and I'd have a good 30 hours a week starting next month, for the next half year or so, But, I'm flexible. I just need my ram.

SEEKING WORK - SF Bay Area - Remote or Local - Long or Short Term Projects

I'm an expert at creating APIs and building client applications (browser-based and mobile apps) powered by APIs.

API Development - I've designed, built, and scaled APIs for many different application profiles, from large complex data models, event subscription architecture, high transaction volume (25K requests/second), to simple REST APIs. I have a good amount of experience analyzing data models and use cases to determine API structure, architecture, and recommended implementation. I know the ins and outs of REST vs RPC, JSON vs XML, and hypermedia vs traditional. I've implemented APIs using Rails, Node.js, and Java platforms. Bottom line - if you need an API developed, I can take you through the process from start to finish.

Single-Page JS App Development - I've led development on multiple single-page JavaScript apps in both desktop and mobile environments. I have significant JavaScript experience and have built full applications from scratch using Backbone.js and Ember.js. Recently I've been working with Balanced Payments to build a web interface for their payments platform using Ember.js. The whole project is open source - check it out! https://github.com/balanced/balanced-dashboard

Mobile App Development - I've deployed multiple apps across iOS and Android platforms for phones and tablets. I'm experienced in both native (iOS, Android) and mobile cross-platform HTML (Sencha Touch, JQuery Mobile) development.

Traditional Web Development - While I've spent most of my time lately working on APIs and API-driven apps, I also have ten years of experience doing traditional server-side web development. If you need a Rails or Java generalist to build a product, augment your team or maintain existing code, get in touch!

SEEKING WORK - Eindhoven, The Netherlands / Remote

Experienced software developer with team lead experience and a hacker attitude. I'm a full-stack web developer and embedded software engineer with 12 years of professional experience doing small and large projects with a large variety of platforms and technologies.

Specialized in C#/.NET in recent years, but unlike too many .NET devs, my scope is not limited to Microsoft's "technologie du jour". I'm familiar with Microsoft's standard technologies as well as the great open source alternatives out there. Experience with making cross-platform mobile apps with Xamarin (MonoTouch / MonoDroid - iOS, Android, Windows Phone) and with making .NET software that runs great on Mono/Linux.

Proficient in:

    * C# / .NET     * C / C++ (Win32 API, microcontrollers, Linux)    * JavaScript / TypeScript / CoffeeScript    * Java (incl Android)    * PHP    * Python    * Ruby
Most of my work has been unfortunately closed-source proprietary stuff, but for a peek at my code, see: https://github.com/eteeselink/fakethat (down-to-earth C# mocking framework)https://github.com/eteeselink/YieldMachine (C# state machines)

https://github.com/eteeselink/cdhere (little C++ console tool that talks to Windows Explorer)

Something of a CV can be found at http://www.linkedin.com/in/egbert.

I can work on-site in the Netherlands, or remotely. I started freelancing only recently, so my portfolio isn't as well presented as yet I'd like it to. Nevertheless, you can find contact info on my brand new placeholder website at http://superset.eu.

Seeking Work -

Partial Stack Curmudgeon- I can administer and scale most modern day languages- I prefer dealing with PHP, Python, C/C++, Erlang, etc- Postgres, MySQL - I've spent many years in- NoSQL - a mix of pragmatic experience, experimentation, and the lil.- Yes, I've done NodeJS, I don't feel anymore rockstar or badass, it has it's place- I've built mobile based projects up through and including systems scaling to thousands and millions, my strengths are still more in the back end.- Security? I have code in the Firefox security libraries from a prior life, I've integrated with banks using SAML (it hurt), I'm way conservative on systems, but you will need to convince me if we decide to pursue things like mutual/client auth.- I'm looking to build up a contract relationship or two that will provide fulltime work to shed some current obligations.

I'm open to something fulltime that borders on technical cofounder, but you really should be technical.

I know Linux, FreeBSD, Windows (in many bad forms), OSX/iOS, Java, C/C++, etc.

If there is no match or I can't be beneficial, I'm upfront about that.

SEEKING WORK - Remote or Toronto

I am a human/machine interface designer && developer. My work consists of "from scratch" UX and interface design, from the napkin to nginx.

I have considerable experience with Ruby and Javascript, years of experience with Rails, and extensive knowledge of client-side MVC. I've made contributions to Ember.js, and have written multiple 10k+ LOC apps - starting with 0.9 up to the latest 1.0 (one was recently featured on Venture Beat: http://venturebeat.com/2013/07/22/uniiverse-releases-direct-...). I am acutely aware of the challenges/strategies associated with migrating server side architecture into the browser, leaning down views, and fattening up controllers.

I am the author of an open source project called Quantify (https://github.com/jdjkelly/quantify) - a Rails API to track "quantified self" data from every manufacturer willing to give it up. My work here was featured on The Verge alongside a similar project by the founder of Foursquare (http://www.theverge.com/2013/6/4/4392996/fitness-tracker-dat...)

Work on untapped aspects of Bitcoin with Python, GNU/Linux.


Developed by a brain researcher to satisfy his own need for a memory-based Bitcoin backup system, Electrum is known for its mnemonic restore function, which enables secure Bitcoin storage without a PC, smartphone or Internet connection.

Electrum was designed to be a simple, easy to use Bitcoin "thin client". Satoshi Nakamoto himself advocated for such a client on the original cryptography mailing list. [0] This is what Electrum is.

As a next step, I want Electrum to store, sync and share encrypted data. Electrum's label sync plugin [1] is already accomplishing encrypted data storage and sync. However, I want to make the label sync plugin more automated and versatile. For example, I want the signup process to be seamless and automated. I also want to be able to selectively share data, perhaps with some basic access controls. Bonus points if we can store data on federated servers or some other P2P solution.

In particular, it's possible to do (and to automate) data storage account signups with challenge-response authentication via Bitcoin message signing [2]. In theory, it's also possible to do automated SSH authentication with Bitcoin message signing. To me, this is one of the most important, untapped aspects of Bitcoin.

When you combine such an authentication scheme with Electrum's mnemonic restore function, you end up with a secure way to maintain access to all kinds of data from one seed phrase, and one application, without hardware or software. Effectively, Electrum can act as a portable API control center, granting you access to just about any type of data, on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS. It could be files, emails, passwords, messages, to-do lists; there is vast potential here.

I'd like to hear from you if you'd be interested in working on such a system.

As we're already working closely with members of the Kivy core team, front end / pure GUI work is mostly covered. Automating Bitcoin message signing auth, and implementing encrypted data store + sync + share is needed. Systems engineers and talented Python devs would be a welcome addition to this project. Of course, if you have other skills that are a fit for this, feel free to get in touch.

We're lucky in the sense that Bitcoin enables us to introduce financial compensation for open source work, which is exactly what this is.

Here's how to contact me:

SEEKING WORK - Remote preferred, onsite possible, based in Cologne, Germany

I do custom electronics (including firmware and control software), robotics, and mechanics, using 3d printing for rapid iterative hardware development. I can take an idea to a prototype in record time, and help you turn the prototype into a product or custom automation solution.

I also do custom workshops to teach you to build and use a 3d printer, and to do iterative mechanical design using one. I'll also happily teach electronic design and prototyping.

I have a very strong preference for open source work, and that is reflected in my rates. If you want to contact me, I can be reached on freenode IRC (name is Kliment, I am usually to be found in the #reprap channel) and by email using klimentat 0xfb.com (yes, that's a zero)

SEEKING WORK - iOS Development - Remote

I'm an iOS engineer with 8+ years of graphic design experience as well - so I can make the full package, from UI design to implementation and production release. I also do some backend work such as writing RoR APIs for mobile apps, but less frontend web development - though I do have slight experience doing that.

Some recent apps:

News/YC - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/news-yc/id592893508?mt=8

Red Cup - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/red-cup/id477350446?mt=8

Rabbit Hole - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/rabbit-hole/id568398282?mt=8




I charge $100/hr for app development, though this can go up depending on the scope of responsibilities. For instance, graphically designing the app and writing the Web APIs necessary for the app to function would cost more.

I'd love to talk more about how I can help you publish the app you want, in the quality you want, and on a time scale that is actually feasible.

Other stuff I've used for something non-trivial at least once: Common Lisp, Scheme, Java, SASS, C, PHP, Haskell, Bash, Perl, MongoDB.

SEEKING WORK - Remote or Madrid or Berlin

I'm an experienced (10+ years) software engineer looking for additional project work. What motivates me is to deliver software that works! Finding simple solutions to complex problems, honing my craft as a software developer every day.

On client projects I have mostly done Java backend development work on SQL and NoSQL dbs. For prototyping and my own projects I'm using Python with Flask and Django. Recently I started doing more with Play/Scala and Ember. But I see myself language/tool agnostic and believe there is a best tool for every task. I love learning new things and believe I can get up to speed quickly in any tech environment.

I'm also transitioning into machine learning and would love some work in that area.

I'm based in Madrid, Spain and looking for remote work or based in Madrid. I'd be also available to work in Berlin as I'm there quite often and might be interested to stay for at least a short term gig or remote with regular travel.

More information can be found here: http://www.bernhardwenzel.com/work (started this blog recently so not a lot there yet). I speak German, English and Spanish.

SEEKING WORK - Remote only. (Based in Tel-Aviv.)

My name is Ram Rachum, and Im a freelance software developer. I help businesses solve their problems using software, mostly by developing web-based applications.

I work mainly in Python and Django.

On the technical level, its my responsibility to have high problem-solving skills; to design a good architecture for each project I work on; to implement that architecture quickly and effectively; and to be experienced with the languages and frameworks that Im using, so when a problem comes up, I dont have to spend 2 hours to research and solve it but rather just 5 minutes, because Ive seen that problem dozen of times before.

On the project-management level, its my responsibility to communicate clearly and honestly with the client and my collaborators on the project; to understand exactly what the client wants to build as we plan together how to build it; to always keep the client updated about progress; to have an owner mentality and make decisions with the best interest of the client in mind; to own up to mistakes when they happen; and to always get feedback as early as possible from the client and from the users, so we know were not wasting time going into blind alleys, and were spending time only on features that the users are happy with.

My email is ram@rachum.com . Send me an email and say hello.

SEEKING FREELANCERS - Charlotte NC or DC Metro preferred, remote ok.

I'm building a small team of designers and developers to pilot a new business line for a mature ecommerce company (>$150MM annual revenue and growing fast). We'll be expected to ship quickly to prove the market, which means pragmatists are better than idealists and generalists better than specialists.

Preference for Rails, but building fresh so the right team could sway us. There will be a heavy client-side JS component. No short term plans for iOS or Android, but feel free to reach out because that won't be too far behind.

Agencies welcome, but odds are if your agency comes with a lot of the typical agency cruft, we won't be a good fit.

I can help with figuring out how to make more money out of your application (B2B SaaS apps are where I have the most experience).

By understanding who your customers are and what they're looking for, I can help create a better experience for them (examples: fixing application hot spots, adding live feedback chat at the right spot, customer satisfaction surveys, analyzing and reducing churn rate...)

Do you have poor signup rates? Low activation or retention metrics? Do you think you could make more money out of your current application?

I have 8 years of experience as a software developer (Python/Django/Javascript), and I've worked both on my own products and for other startups.

SEEKING WORK, Remote and part-time only.

Currently, I am working fulltime and very happy with my job. However, I am available for part-time consulting and sub-contracting jobs.

I might be a good option when there is need to offload some work but not enough to pay someone for fulltime position. I am pretty good at working with incomplete or vague requirements, finding bugs in code or design, data analysis, optimizing slow running code or sqls.

A few negative working with me are:

1. I will not be available during the business hours (8AM-6PM US/Central). Not even by email. Also I cannot guarantee a fixed schedule.

2. I probably won't be a good fit for non-technical founders or managers.

Keywords: PHP, Mysql, Zend Framework, Laravel, CodeIgniter, Linux, Java.

SEEKING WORK - Remote (Germany based, Travel Possible)

Full stack developer, primarily fronted

In the last few years I've spent most of my time on mobile web apps (Senior/Architect roles), now after becoming a freelancer/product owner (http://cutterslounge.de) a year ago I also (again, I have a strong Python-Web background) spend a lot of time doing backend, primarily Python APIs with Postgres and Mysql.

I love clean code, consider automated tests as part of any software development, I'm obsessed with optimising the user experience and I don't deploy/setup manually.

Primary skills:* Javascript* Python* Mobile web development

Tools I often use and other skills:* AWS (EC2, RDS)* Ansible (server setup, deployment)* Backbone.Marionette

Github: http://github.com/sebslomskiEmail: sebastian@purelabs.deWebsite/CV: http://sebslomski.com

Team: My co-founder is offering his design skills as well, preferably together as a team (that's how we usually work, and have worked for the past 4 years). But this is optional.

Portfolio:Most of my clients hire me/us for short term projects (many of them prototypes, proof-of-concept and demos). As this is usually under NDA, I'm not allowed to list them.BUT, take a look at our product Cutters Lounge (http://cutterslounge.de), where all of our knowledge is combined.

I'm a junior web developer that's constantly seeking more challenges. I quit my job and moved to Ireland just recently and I've kept busy learning C and getting into information security, but I'm aching to do some web development work again.

I'm pretty good with Ruby on Rails and AngularJS. I'm also pretty familiar with D3.js, Python, making/consuming APIs, and getting things running on Heroku or an nginx VPS.

What do I mean by "pretty good"? I got a junior web dev spot at my last job (awesome company) after a 3 month internship, because as they said, I learn things really really fast. And damn, I love doing this stuff.

What's your runway? Do you have money for 3 months? 6 months? 9 months?

If you have personal runway for 1 year (around 40-60k euros, I guess), you can start a product company.

If you have less, I recommend to look for a "special client". Some company that will pay you 20-50K euro for custom solution and allow you to retain full IP ownership. You can turn it into a general product after delivery to your initial client.

> I already miss running my company

You are freelancing now. You are already running your own company.

You were doing consulting before, and now you are consulting in the same space. This is the same space your company was operating in but you left for financial reasons. Now you find consulting is a bitch, but apparently consulting was a bitch with the company you left.

It does sound like something needs to change.

I'm not sure anyone here can give you advice that you don't already know given you have been working in this space with your old company and now as a consultant. Maybe your partner was holding you back. Maybe you will find new inspiration by going solo. Maybe you need to move to a different area of consulting.

Products is probably a good direction to go. The big difference between products and consulting is that you can build a product and sell that product multiple times. With consulting you are limited to the time that you have in one day. If you max out your time and you still aren't where you want to be, then you have nowhere else to go but raise your rates or higher more people. If your customers will bolt when you raise your rates and you can't find more work for your new hires, then you are pretty much stuck. Maybe that was the problem with the old company?

Which country are you located in? Why was targeting Europe as your market a mistake? What are you freelancing on? I'm a freelancer getting started in France after a few years of web dev experience and thinking of targeting the European startups so am really interested in your experience :-)

Personally after having been employed for many years and tried to build products full-time, I'm currently working on getting freelance clients and thinking of building a product later, to serve these same clients. That way you got plenty of validation for your product.

You could do the same: consult on devops for your niche, and later on or at the same time build a product out of the biggest pains you observed. Note: a product could be software but also an education product (ebook or course).

This would help with getting even more insight into the problems of your customers while buying you some time to build your software product(with the money earned from your education product) since it takes much more time to validate and build a business on.

(disclaimer: I run https://www.wisecashhq.com - cash flow forecasting tool)

I do not cope with that bug because it wouldn't go away - and product building is just so much fun :-) I agree that freelancing is hard, on the long run at least.

My current solution to this is to mix consulting and product building.

If you can project your cash flow, you can figure out how many days of consulting are required, and at which rate, to still keep one day or two to bootstrap your product.

Then you have to find clients that will accept to keep you around for a limited number of days per week, as well.

It usually comes with raising your rates too, because if you need to freelance full-time to support your family, then you won't be able to make spare time.

This is a topic I like to discuss a lot, so feel free to ping me anytime (thibaut.barrere@gmail.com) if you want to exchange a bit!

Microsoft had this as their aim with "Windows Longhorn", announced ten years ago this month, but failed in their task and released instead Vista.

Here's some relevant snippets from http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2011/06/window... ...

* ... Longhorn would integrate .NET into the core Windows platform. .NET FX, as it was known in the company (with "FX" standing for "framework") would give way to WinFX, a Windows Framework based on the same technology. Among other things, this would include a brand new way for writing user interfaces, codenamed Avalon, that would be thoroughly modern, vector-based, and hardware-accelerated. Windows itself would be written to use WinFX for its user-visible programsExplorer, calculator, and so onand, going forward, .NET would be the way to write Windows applications. Win32 would still exist for backwards compatibility, but it would be frozen and left static.

* Longhorn would have been the end of the old ways of writing Windows programs, and the dawn of a new era of modern Windows development, one that was not hamstrung by design decisions made ten or fifteen years prior.

* As we all know now, Longhorn never shipped as such. The project grew enormous, unmanageable, and broken. Around the same time, Windows XP, on which Longhorn was based, was being ravaged by hackers. Microsoft poured its resources into making Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 tolerably securean effort that culminated in Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1then, for the most part, started development of its next operating system, the one eventually to ship as Windows Vista, all over again.

* One of the biggest losers in this developmental reboot was .NET. Windows Vista, though radical in some ways, abandoned the entire "WinFX" concept. Avalon did shipit's now known as Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)but as an add-on to the operating system, not a core part.

fusiongyro 15 hours ago 2 replies      
The Lisp machine operating system was written in Lisp. In fact, it was Lisp all the way down to the microcode, or at least, it would present the microcode in Emacs as if it were Lisp, and you could modify it there. The Lisp machine OS was similar to other OSes of the age, more capable in many ways.

A modern OS is a huge amount of work. It's so vast, your choice of language isn't going to make or break you. Moving a mountain with a tablespoon should proceed three times faster than with a teaspoon. You're still looking at an eternity if you're the only guy.

For this reason, your best bet is to narrow in. Decide what it is you want to write an OS for. Do you want to explore novel user experiences? C# is probably fine for that. You don't need to write the whole OS there, just the "shell" and the window manager. You can do that now, and not spend any time dealing with drivers. Do you want to experiment with microkernel or exokernel architecture? You'll be breaking new ground. Is C# OK for that? What you're really asking is, what are the limitations of C# that you'll run into? The GC pause is one, another is dealing with raw bytes and making it perform. If make the CLR self-hosting, you're going to find performance problems like crazy. If you make fixing that your mission, you could be a hero like the PyPy guys, and everything gets better, or you might just be throwing away a lot of work.

I happen to think a lot of interesting problems would benefit from a high-level approach. Security is a declarative process. You want to say what you want secured and not how. Only one system I know of has ever used Prolog for this (MeeGo, IIRC?) but it was probably a perfect fit. There are lots of opportunities for this kind of thing in OSes and they're never really exploited. If your whole kernel is C and you want to add a declarative security module, well, you'll be writing C. You can surely accomplish the same tasks in C as C#, but if it's a pain in the ass you'll either wind up with a weaker or more limited version in C, or you'll spend more time writing and polishing it. But the world is ripe for a few people to take the unpopular tradeoff and see how well it works out, rather than taking their predecessor's word for it.

To sum up, they're not suitable for the whole job from start to finish. However, if you tried it, you'd make some interesting stuff, and learn a lot, maybe even make things better for other people. Take a crack at it. Worst thing that could happen is you fail. :)

I'm going to put the equivalent effort into answering this question that you did into researching it: maybe, maybe not.

That you didn't mention Singularity or Cosmos tells me that you haven't cared enough about this to even do a cursory Google search on the subject.

Anyway, Google those above OSes, browse through their white papers and you'll have your answer (as given above). You might also check out JavaOS, Inferno, JNode, etc which have similar goals.

Yes, there is no question that C# is sufficient to write an OS. However, you would need to ignore/replace the libraries that are normally used with C# applications. Instead you would write your own low-level libraries that provide only the kind of services that an OS requires. But the biggest hurdle will be the compiler. A normal C# compiler only generates bytecodes that will be run on the .NET or the Mono virtual machine engines. You will need an additional stage of compiler that either produces machine code, or something that can easily be converted to machine code such as C code or GCC's intermediate representation. It is a hurdle but not a massive one since there is a lot of support out there for writing compilers. People have recently been writing compilers for a number of languages that emit Javascript and your hurdle is no more complex.

When you write your compiler you will probably end up leaving out some C# features such as reflection, because they are too intertwined with .NET. This is common with other languages when people have tried to write a compiler that emits machine code and it does not usually cause a problem because the problem of interfacing with hardware does not demand the same features from a language as building a modern web app does.

Do your research before starting this because you will likely find a lot of projects that have already built bits and pieces that you can reuse.

Elementary OS is built on Vala, a language syntactically similar to C#, but compiles to C. Not trying to detour you from C#, but it might be a better option as even Singularity is not entire C# (the lower level stuff).

To write an OS you need to generate native executable for the hardware that you are running on. The mainstream implementations of C# require CIL + CLR. i.e. you need a virtual machine + libraries and framework. Not exactly "bare metal" environment.

But C# is more advanced language than C, so that might be beneficial in some areas. As a minimum you would need a C# to native compiler and facilities to include assembly language code in some low level areas.

To get a better idea of what it takes to implement an OS, take a look at the Linux kernel source code. Or if that is too daunting, you could look at Minix 3 sources.

What makes C suitable for low level programming is not only lack of GC, but lack of global heap at all. Global heap is just a library thing. You can decide to alloc on a stack or use a particular memory region for allocation. Also you routinely copy between user and kernel spaces for security. This is totally different then global GC and global heap approach of c#. All works around this problem is basically getting away from C# so could you still call it OS written in C# when this problems were solved?

You might want to wait for Rust to be ready, because this way you can build an OS that truly made for the future (very optimized for multi-core).

If you don't want to appeal to the general market, but more for a specialized market (like in enterprise or whatever), then you should probably optimize it for AMD's Mantle API, too, and take full advantage of the performance for both the CPU and GPU that you get from that. Also don't even bother with 32-bit.

Experienced developers have to weigh-in 150k + great benefits for their families at established tech companies their family can brag about vs mostly unstable jobs at thousands of small companies nobody knows about. Experience may also mean they've been burned by promises at least once before. For every early employee at Facebook there are hundreds in the Valley who never saw the upside. If you are looking outside of SV a developer with a family would need a house and housing is expensive - so salary would matter a lot.

I am a tech founder too, and all of the above just reminds me this is a race. You have to be better to survive, so pick something that your company offers that is better than the rest. Culture? Team? Product? Mission? An odd perk? A brand reputation?

When all else fails, look at Wall Street. Most New York finance jobs are terrible at all non-tangible criteria anyone would have for a job, so they catch smart people with higher salaries and burn through them by the thousands.

I've found the best hires are referrals of your best people. If someone you respect is already working for you and they refer someone they respect to you that is a big sign you are doing something right.

Just state "40 hour workweek" as a pro if you're running job ads. There might be a different problem though if you're only getting young inexperienced applicants, are you offering a high enough salary and going through the right channels? Most experienced programmers/engineers use their networks to find jobs instead of looking through ads, maybe use your network or LinkedIn to find employees. There's also the possibility that they don't want to shoulder the risk of having to find another job soon if your venture goes belly-up. You're looking to fill a risky job with someone who isn't really in a position to take a risk.

Be somewhat careful how you word your ad, age discrimination is a thing and you just want to avoid any appearances that will make a rejected applicant think about getting a lawyer involved.

I think everyone in the company, at an early stage, should have a mindset of ensuring things are getting done, rather then working X number of hours. It should never be about the number of hours your working - some weeks it may be 100 hours, then some weeks it may be 30 hours. It should always be about building a great company and finding those people that are passionate about the same, family or not.Also, it is discrimination to actually not accept candidates based on whether they have kids or not. We never ask family/personal related questions in our interviews, as it is against the law to do so.

bmelton 2 days ago 1 reply      
When I turned 32, I decided to learn guitar. I was absolutely horribly. Atrocious. Ear-piercing.

Four years later, I recently sat down in a jam session with a buddy who asked me how long I'd been playing for, and was shocked to hear that it had only been as long as it had. I wouldn't consider myself especially good at guitar, or any faster at learning than the next guy, but I've stuck with it, and made sure to learn something every couple of days, with the idea that if I learned a couple of things per week, then over time, those weeks would add up, and I'd know something.

I'm still a million miles away from being a rock star, but I could, realistically, play guitar in a band on stage, if I needed to. Learning songs has gone from taking months to a few minutes, on average (highly depending on the song). All that, and I didn't start til I was 32.

As a 36 year old web developer by trade, the skills are comparable. Learning compounds over time, and you'll be able to put pieces together more efficiently the more you do it.

The most relevant advice I can give is to just start learning, and the best way to start learning is to start doing. There have been plenty of folks who went from nobody to hirable by building a pet project and learning the language in order to do so. To work at a startup, or small business, "being able to code well" is often less important than "being able to code a project to completion." Build a blog, then use it to blog about your coding progress. Share your trials and tribulations, and post all the code you write on Github. Do that, and you'll likely be coding pretty well within a year's time.

To sum up, yes, you still have plenty of time to crack into the field. No, I wouldn't hire you (at the moment).

As for your niche market, my guess would be that your architectural background should have bearing on it. A buddy of mine is a restaurant owner, and also a developer. Unsurprisingly, he's building analytical tools for restaurant owners. He could likely have built the app for any niche, but his domain expertise means that he understands the market far better than even a much better developer.

At some point in your prior career, I have to assume that you dealt with some pain point related to poor tools in the job. Make better tools. Make them be more usable, more UX oriented, and more attractive, then sell them to other architects who were likely to have experienced those same pain points.

As for skills to improve, I would start with Javascript. For 'catching up', you can use the same language in both the front and back ends with JS, and you already know a smattering, which will hopefully ease the learning curve somewhat.

Either way, good luck. What I can tell you, as an average learner, persistence is really the only thing that you need. Just like exercise, or learning guitar, it all seems hard at first, and all gets easier with time. All that is required is to not give up early on, and you will most undoubtedly become better and better over time.

I talked with a man who worked in a client's company. He's 60+ years old and doing front end development in Javascript. I asked him how he managed to work in an office where the average developer age is probably 26.

Here's what he said to get his career rebooted:

1) Never think about your age

2) Use the language you want to work in. He did a lot of little project for non-profits. Great experience, but also covered the employment gaps in his resume.

3) Become an expert - answer questions on ExpertExchange (he started 8 years ago, pre StackOverlow). He became one of the top JS guys on that site

4) Put up resources on a personal site - his EE posts would link to his personal site with CSS, HTML, and JS examples. I checked it out and a lot were still applicable. Date formatting and regex's never go out of style.

5) Hustle for that first job - he literally opened the phone book and called around for work. After his expertise became better known and the market for frontend work got hot, recruiters sought him out. All those EE links to his personal site helped his Google ranking.

So go do it. Don't blame your age. Work harder.

bhauer 2 days ago 0 replies      
Your age is absolutely not a hindrance. To my eye, it's not even relevant.

What is relevant is how eager you are to learn the technologies you know you need to pick up in order to be an appealing candidate. Illustrate your eagerness to learn these things by building something personal using them and demonstrable to potential employers.

When I consider candidates that don't have the typical university degree or decided later in life to switch to web development, I am most impressed by those who've dived right in and aren't looking to me to take a gamble on their willingness to be committed to the new discipline they've chosen.

As for specific areas of focus, my advice would be to spend some time learning a modern language that is not necessarily what potential employers might use in real world projects. When I speak to candidates who have picked up Scala, Go, Haskell, or Clojure on their own just out of fun, I feel I'm talking to someone who simply likes the challenge of learning.

That's not to say ignore the more pragmatic languagesthose more likely to have jobs in your area.

If I were in your shoes, I would concentrate on javascript. Any web development job you try to get will expect you to know javascript, and it's not going away anytime soon. Once you learn it, you can use it as a springboard for learning other languages. Do these things

1. Figure out had to add javascript code to a static html page. Implement functionality like showing/hiding content, simple animations, etc.

2. Figure out how to add jquery to a static html page. Jquery is incredibly popular javascript library that makes changing content on a web page much easier.

3. Learn how to run simple javascript scripts from the console using node.js. You don't have to have a website to run javascript.

4. Go to project euler, and write javascript programs to solve the problems there. Run your programs with node.js. You're going to have to learn about if statements, while loops, and for loops to solve these problems. It will force you to learn javascript.

5. Figure out how to use node.js as a server. Make a simple application that interacts with a server, for example a chat room application.

6. Put your code on github and deploy it on heroku for free. You now have built and deployed your own website. I think that looks pretty damn good.

Disclaimer: I have been a web developer for 3 years. I got my first job with a minor in Computer Science, so I never actually did what you're trying to do.

hrabago 2 days ago 1 reply      
Your main problem would be getting your foot in the door. What happens after that is up to you, based on:* How well you do your job* Your ability to grow in the profession* Your ability to work with others

In other words, once you're in, you'll likely be judged based on factors everyone else is judged, which again means the problem is getting in.

To aid with that, you'd have to be realistic. Based on your skill level right now, it would be difficult to justify hiring you. You'd be competing against college graduates who already know item #3 above, some quite deeply, although in a book-smart kind of way.

So yes, I would recommend selecting a language and getting to know it enough to pass certification exams. Heck, get some certification, if only to prove that you're familiar with the general syntax. Don't get disillusioned though that certification is a plus - it's a poor substitute to proof that you spent four years formally studying Computer Science in a structured manner.

If you want an edge, go and actually build something and market yourself based on that. Yes, a software portfolio, like you're familiar with from your architecture and design background. That will give you an edge over college grads with just a degree.

But to reiterate my main point, your main problem is getting in the door. Once you're in, your age won't matter, only the stuff that everyone else is judged on will.

I think the main thing is that this stuff is constantly changing, and you've got to have both a willingness and the time to stay on top of it. I don't feel that I'm any less equipped to learn new things at 40, but the external responsibilities that I have now (notably family) have significantly cut down on my free time, which is when I usually play around with new languages and frameworks.
lucasrp 1 day ago 1 reply      
1) Yes. I'm 28 and began coding 6 months ago. I guess that the biggest challenge for people like us was how to get education. I couldnt spare 4 years of my life in a university. But MOOCs changed this. A few courses on edx/coursera, and will be ready to do great things.

2) I guess that, before you think in specialize into something, you must ask yourself what you must learn before that. You need to be confortable with databases and the infrastructure process (version control, deploying, testing, etc.)

Go look the SaaS course on EDx.

3) I recommend you start with python. It is easy to learn the basics and have a great community. You will find many libraries to help you achieve what you want, and your questions will be answered quickly in stackoverflow or something like that.

4) Again, MOOCs are the aswer. If you find time to be always doing 2 courses at the same time, in 6 times you'll be in grate shape. seriously.

FridayWithJohn 2 days ago 0 replies      
You ask three questions, I will address each of them.

1.) You are a little late as most people started this a little younger. However that means nothing as development changes so much, especially on the web side of things. For example PHP 5 (the only version you should use, not PHP4) only came out about 9 years ago. I would hire you but ONLY when I see your coding skills. (Tip: if you don't have a github account, get one now. It is free and then you can also get ahead with thousands of other developers. Also a "see me on github" on your CV will really stand out as a good thing.)

2.) It looks like you only have done HTML and CSS... both of these have changed so much that if you want to get serious with either of them you shouldn't really use them in the "traditional sense". By that I mean that you should rather use a framework that works out really nicely. Responsive design (works on all sized screens, mobile, iPad, etc) is currently a hot topic. Try out Foundation. It is a really cool framework for front end design. (and much easier to learn than Bootstrap) http://foundation.zurb.com/

3.) If you want to do actual programming, I would still recommend PHP. It is still the largest server side language... and hence more jobs available. Just some companies that use it: Google, Facebook, Wikipedia, Amazon and Apple. However whatever language you do end up using, if you want to get really good at it and get noticed in the job market find yourself a framework and get good at it. For PHP I would recommend symfony2 http://symfony.com/ as it has by far the largest community.

To sum up with, I would say that if you push yourself really hard, keep abreast with the technologies and most importantly practise coding you should be rather good in just a few years

memracom 1 day ago 0 replies      
You have a VERY good background to make a go of website development. If I were in your shoes I would focus, at first, on sites that are mostly UI/UX. Make them work well and look good. On the programming side, focus on Javascript. This will pay off in building more responsive sites, for instance reactive programming, and it can also be used on the background. Because of your background, I think that you should focus on using node.js for the backend components. In particular use the Express framework because it is lightweight and therefore easier to learn. Do spend some time on pure Javascript learning such as reading Javascript, The Good Parts and doing Javascript tutorials and code katas.

P.S. I'm in my 50's and I learn a new language every couple of years. 33 is young. On the other hand, a 33 year old has lots of experience in other areas that can be leveraged to make learning faster.

electrichead 2 days ago 0 replies      
I am 33 as well and have been working in web development for about 10 years. I still wonder the same thing, myself. An interesting thing about this field is that although things change constantly, there are concepts that are transferable from one to the other. If you build a good foundation on those things and keep trying to learn new things,your age never enters the equation.

Since you already have a design background, I think it would be well worth your while to just learn how to use HTML, CSS and javascript effectively. You should be able to learn them inside and out in comparatively short amount of time compared to something like objective-C. There is also a big market for designers who can work with code (script?).

Briguy2k 1 day ago 0 replies      
Subtract 6 years, and I'm in almost your exact shoes. I'm a professionally trained musician and music teacher, and while I love those activities and would never want to stop doing them, I always wanted to expand my abilities to include software design as well (plus, regular and/or better pay is always a wonderful perk). So I'm in the middle of doing what so many on here already suggested:

1)MOOCS (Coursera, edx)2)Crowdsourced resources (wikibooks)3)Free/freemium online books (http://programming-motherfucker.com/)4)Many open-source communities (git-hub, stackexchange)

As far as the learning is concerned, constantly switching between different sources above to hear the same information from different resources and taught in different styles is crucial I think. I know this from my formal teaching background and feel comfortable with the learning part of this entire venture.

The second part of your questions though about finding work I'm not so sure about as I'm not there yet. I personally have chosen python as my language to learn because I've found that:

1)It makes sense to me after trying out a couple of different languages on codeacademy2)The clean syntax and forced indenting structure allows me to focus more on the problem domain then the language itself (or which indenting/bracket style to use). This can be said of any language I'm sure as people have different preferences and perspectives, but this was clearly evident to me early on.3)With the discovery of Django and so many other python based tools, I realized that I could actually achieve a lot by specializing in python. But of course I need to include html, css, and perhaps random java script as well to get a dynamic web page going, but at least Django frees me from needing to get into php.4)I personally have a creative mind and less of an engineering mind. Learning C or some other lower level language would drive me nuts I think AS A FIRST LANGUAGE. I'm able to casually learn about different algorithms and data structures in python without having to fully master them just to make a basic program (as I would in C for example).

Now my goals might be different from you, I have a long list of projects and ideas that I would like to do on my own that could possibly make money, so I'm making all my decisions from a passion perspective, not as a supply/demand one. But maybe that's not quite a bad idea after all? You're already starting from scratch, why not try your own projects first doing them in exactly the languages you want to do them in? I've always felt that there are always plenty of people doing the "standard learning" track for the "standard jobs" that the market demands. If your trying to follow a market, you'll always be at the whim of the market. Why not make your own market?

I always come back to this quote:

Dont ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

I think that in my opinion you can learn what you need to know to be employable in comp sci in a few years, so by the time your 34 or 35 you'll have the tools you need to function in the field.

Experience is very ephemeral in this field because things change so rapidly.

If you are serious about programming and have any possibility of doing this at all, by all means get a CS degree at the best university you can access. I have worked with or interviewed a few programmers without any university degree and time and time again their confidence in how getting a degree is a total waste of time was directly proportional to their ignorance of basic facts from various areas of CS and inability to solve problems in a systematic way.

A lot of those people simply never get any external validation, have problems getting along with other people, and are unable to accept any kind of mentoring (while they desperately need it), in the end growing up believing in the greatness of their skills which in reality are not even mediocre. Since this seems to be the reason a large fraction of people does not finish their degrees, by this point as a recruiter I would just not hire a person without a degree.

For this reason, I would also ignore a lot of the testimonies that invariably will appear here of self-taught programmers proclaiming supposedly doing great, unless they have projects and code to back their claims up.

There certainly are exceptions, but do not start with the belief you will be one. Getting the same kind of wide perspective you get from a college degree from self-studying is several times as hard. I have self-studied mathematics after finishing my CS degree for a few years now and that's my practical experience. If you don't have the possibility to attend university, make sure to get as many opportunities as possible of verifying and testing your skills in different areas and stay modest.

This post by Notch of Minecraft fame illustrates all that I have said very well:


As far as practical advice goes, as soon as you are able to at all write working programs of non-trivial complexity (say, a platform game) MIT OCW is the place to be:





Taking those four courses in this order will provide a great basis, but I would be surprised if someone would be able to complete those in less than two years when self studying (I solved most exercises from SICP, learned a lot, but took me more than a year). To get the equivalent of a university degree, you would still need to heavily study at least four more topics: networking & security, compilers, operating systems and databases. Those two books might be a reasonable shortcut to learn some of this:



Source: I started working full-time as a developer when I was 19 and did it ever since, did a four year CS degree as evening studies after work (already having significant programming experience when starting the degree) and spent a significant amount of time self-studying (I worked through almost all of SICP, read the "Dragon Book", wrote a compiler etc.). I would never be where I am today (wherever it is) without teachers and colleagues from the university, there would be just lots and lots of gaps in my knowledge I would never get aware of.

I'm self-taught - when I was in my early teens at high-school, my parents wouldn't let me watch TV or play computer games until the evening. Fiddling with HTML looked enough like school work that I got away with it during the afternoons after school.

I built a bunch of personal websites, and sold my first professional website (static HTML) to a local estate agent when I was 15, back in 2000. I charged 300 - around $500 at the time. I worked for them for a couple of years, updating properties etc.

I studied Law at university, but worked on websites for my college, the student paper and various sports teams. I started my first startup when I was 19 - I wrote a lot of bad PHP and inline MySQL queries whenever I needed data in what we now call "views". There was no test suite, no version control and I often made changes straight into production, because I couldn't get a LAMP environment running consistently on my PC. This repeatedly took the site down for hours at a time. This was back in 2004. The bad old days.

I took a break from coding to join a management consultancy for almost 3 years, although I ended up automating a lot of my work in Visual Basic (through Excel), and went on to teach the Excel course to colleagues.

I started my second company at the start of 2011, during an enforced 3-month period of "gardening leave" between two jobs. I decided that I wanted to learn how to code properly, so I bought "Agile Web Development with Rails", published by Pragmatic Programmers, and worked through it in about 3 or 4 days, non-stop. This was an epiphany - web development all started to make sense, and we launched the first version of our site about 2 weeks later. I knew enough Ruby to be dangerous, but probably not enough to get a job as a professional programmer.

As my co-founder was teaching himself HTML & CSS at the time, we didn't really have expertise in-house, so I spent a lot of time on the #rubyonrails channel on freenode - a wonderful place to get help on anything Rails related. Stack Overflow was also very useful.

By March or April of 2011, we'd been accepted onto Y Combinator and hired our first (extremely capable) engineer, who had a CS degree. This spurred me on to become more technically capable, so I just started devouring programming books. I've mostly steered away from the classics (Gang of Four just didn't make sense from a Ruby point-of-view), but there are often more practical, up-to-date equivalents in the language of your choice. "Design Patterns in Ruby" and "Eloquent Ruby", both by Russ Olsen, stand out for me.

Ruby Koans, and then implementing a bunch of common sorting algorithms have kept me keen to keep learning the more theoretical side of stuff. I've had a little more time on my hands recently, so I've divided into open-source software - I'm currently trying to help out with Resque 2.0 (pull request coming soon, I promise!).

I've recently played around with Clojure and Go, but I'm struggling to get into them without a practical project to spur me on.

I'd say I'm now competent enough to have a good shot at getting most Ruby-based development jobs out there, if that was a path I wanted to take. And it only took 14 years!

I am "self-taught". Started in 1981 when I was 10 years old and my mother bought me a sinclair zx81 instead of the Atari 2600 I wanted for Christmas. It came with a bunch of games in the form of 3 books. After my initial shock and disappointment wore off I started to input the games and became hooked on programming.

I did study a uni CS and EE for a couple of years, but left because my school was way behind what was happening in the real world at the time. I was consulting in the IT world, and thought at the time that the CS stuff was hopelessly outdated. I realised years later that I should have stuck with it because now I know that some of the theory is universal and timeless and would have stopped me from reinventing wheels a lot.

I've mainly learned by doing, solving problems using technology. I learned in the beginning from books and usenet, then gopher was my friend and eventually of course the web. I still find a good book is the main foundation I use for learning, supported by things such as forums and MOOCs (I've yet to find a MOOC I agree with, mainly because I am personally not a big fan of video learning - I still like books the most)

I've worked on and off in the IT world for 25+ years, currently I am an English teacher, I do IT projects on the side and I'm about to tackle e-learning head on with a new start-up. I would have trouble finding a job because I have no formal degree (people toss my CV/resume) and I am late to the world of github so nowhere to point people to see my work as most of the problems I have solved are internal problems businesses have. So most of my work comes through word of mouth recommendations, and I only take projects nowadays that have an new, interesting angle for me - point in case I am learning NoSQL and Graphing DBs to create a recommendation system for a network of insurance brokers. (I think the problem could actually be solved trivially with Postgres and judicial use of statistical analysis, so I am creating 2 solutions in parallel to see which one will perform better at scale as well as more accurate). I've never done rec systems before, but I'm a big fan of AI and ML, so this seems like an interesting problem to research and look into, as well as having the opportunity to be a little profitable.

Started off self-taught. Got some college learnin' in me eventually.

2) Wrote my first code at 8.

3) Got my first programming job at 16 at the US Air Force Research Laboratory in Rome, NY. I'm pushing 30 now and still going strong.

1) How did I first learn to code? Caveat: I think how I learned is a lot different from how most people learn today. I didn't have the Internet, or even a modem. I lived in a tiny, tiny town (~500 people) in Northern NY (closer to Canada than NYC).

But to answer the question, I picked up a book - the Commodore 64 BASIC Manual if I remember the title correctly. Some friends and I wanted to make a game. I remember my friend's dad telling me that I'd need to learn to Program a computer. I didn't know what that was, but I wanted that game, dammit. He didn't teach me to program (he didn't know how, either), but he did let me rifle around in a box of books he had.

A bit later I switched to coding various nefarious tools for AOL (punters, phishers, crackers, mass mailers, etc) on the Mac (Macfilez/zelifcam, anyone?). Everything was done in this tool called OneClick that forced everything to be fairly open and modifiable, so I learned that by example. Incidentally I stumbled into A/B testing by writing automated 'phishers' on AOL (Anyone got any <M>< ?? Press 666 or IM me to trade <>< !!). Turns out that telling people they won something (like a free month of AOL) is far, far more effective at getting them to pony up their password than telling them AOL was hacked. I know better now, I didn't then. I was 12.

A bit later I switched to a PC running windows 98, and I picked up a pirated copy of VB 3.0. I learned that from a For Dummies book, I believe. I eventually shifted to 5.0, then 6.0, and started learning ASP and web stuff. I did a bit of work here and there for myself and for my school.

Eventually I got lucky and one of the Project Managers at the AFRL offered me a job. The AFRL is really slow to do anything, let alone hiring teenagers to build chem/bio weapons detection systems, so he dumped a bit of extra money into one of his contractors and they hired me. He even worked with my high school so that I could juggle my classes around and get out after a half day. Department of Defense letterhead goes a long way. Eventually the bureaucracy came around and the AFRL offices in Rome modified their internship program to include local high school students. I believe the program is still quite active, and it's been hugely useful for both the kids in the nearby po-dunk towns as well as the AFRL. From my end, it was an amazing experience. I had access to tons of awesome equipment, lots of very enthusiastic and very good mentors, and I got to do real work on a real project that had real users (hard to find in DoD work sometimes, especially when it falls under the 'research' umbrella).

I started formal schooling a year and a half later. My university thankfully placed a lot of emphasis on cross disciplinary collaboration. It is a technical university, and CS was a popular program there. For non-computing degrees (engineering, sciences) CS students were often seen as useful, and quite often other programs required that their students pair up with one of us to be successful on larger projects. As a result I spent a ton of time in my university's marine sciences/engineering department. I ended up working for a professor there building in situ oceanographic sensors. It was there that I really learned the "power" of having a domain, and that computing extends far, far beyond computers.

Today I'm still learning, but it's really just your run-of-the mill on the job type stuff. Occasionally I geek out on a side project when I get excited about some new technology which isn't applicable to my day job. This keeps me sane, and often teaches me things that I can bring back to my day job. It's kind of like an individual-scale space program, and the new tricks I learn are velcro, styrofoam, etc.

The question not asked: How do I think a newcomer should learn? Two big, big things that nobody really mentions: find motivation, and completely ditch the 'this is hard' fear.

On motivation, just give yourself a goal which writing some software will help you attain. For most people who aren't already implicitly motivated by the 'compters are neato!' vibe, this must be a goal which is related to something you already care about.

On fear, I've seen the 'this is hard' assumption/mentality cause sooo many people to quit long before they ever gave it a shot. If it's hard, find something that makes it easy. The best resource is a mentor if you can get one.

Also regarding the 'this is hard' fear/mentality, take up rock climbing if you can. I can't think of an activity more analogous to building and debugging software than trying to figure out a climbing problem. It's hard? Then you're not attacking it from the right angle. In bouldering especially sometimes the difference between hard and stupid easy is whether or not you're stepping on the inside or the outside of your foot.

Don't bother with finding good 'learn to code' resources until you've found motivation and ditched the fear (if you ever had it).

Hope this helps. Contact info is in my profile if you want to get in touch!

I know I'm going to get some backlash for this comment so hold on to your hats.By going for a degree you're going to the route most often travelled by most developers, you'll spend three or four years trampling over territory frequently covered and thoroughly documented, you may be required to specific materials and use specific languages. Three to four years is a long time and during that time many things may have happenned in the IT industry, you may also find that your enthusiasm might have dwindled somewhat. And then you'll be faced with the biggest dilemma...

How do I get a job?

Sure, having a degree might add some weight to your CV/Resume but it will not have the same weight as three to four years of experience in a skillset that is modern and relevant.

The problem with the approach of avoiding the degree route is what some might see as a lack of depth/insight into computer science. And that really all depends on what career you want. If you want to build mobile Apps and Websites then you probably don't need the in depth computer science knowledge. On the flipside, if you want to get into games programming or device driver programming or programming of computationally intensive tasks then you need to know that computer science stuff.

People here might say that the computer science you'll learn from a degree is invaluable, but honestly it's mostly boring junk that most people sat in an lecture hall of three-hundred people will struggle to get through because of the tediosity of it's presentation. In educational institutes you (the student) are expected to go out and seek the answers to the lecturers questions - makes sense right? But you're doing the work there, and most of the time students don't know why they need to know what's been asked of them.

A few final points: most of the self-taught programmers I've known have been head-and-shoulders above their CS counterparts. They have had an insatiable appetite to learn and most have learned from a young age.

I started programming at a very young age, and actually wanted to study Physics at University because I was slightly tired of computer programming by that age... little did I know I was going to make a career out of it.

I'm self-taught and a relatively late starter. I've also never studied computer science in a formal setting (i.e. at a university).

I started programming when I was studying for a PhD (in mathematics) around 2006-07. I was 23 at the time. That was mainly in Matlab and Fortran. My code from those 3-4 years is, frankly, pretty horrifying.

When I got my first job in industry (quant at an investment bank in 2010) I had to learn Java, and a language called Q[0], which is a very fast array-processing language with a functional feel and a built-in query language for the KDB database. I also picked up a little bit of R, mainly because I was building a lot of statistical models and it was far easier than doing it in Java.

That piqued my interest in functional programming, and I subsequently learnt Haskell using the book Learn You A Haskell[1]. I picked up Python around the same time when I was trying to write a web scraper, and finding it painful in any of the languages that I currently knew. For that I used Learn Python The Hard Way[2].

When I started a new job in 2011 I started writing Matlab again, causing me to finally learn it properly. Around that time I decided to try and learn a low-level language, so I picked C, mainly because there was an interesting edX course [3] that I wanted to try (the Harvard course CS50).

I'm at a weird in-between stage now. I can write comfortably in half a dozen languages, but there's a whole swathe of programming that is completely alien to me (web design, networking, and any kind of formal software architecture). I've written a lot of heavily numerical and mathematical code, but never written a CRUD app or a web page. I still don't know Javascript.

I learned by having problems I needed to solve, and I knew that a computer could solve those problems.

For me the most important thing is not having a rule book. If you believe deeply that you need a CS degree or to follow a popular route into the industry then I believe that you will fail to learn as everything will seem to be an obstacle that you are not privileged enough to overcome.

Without a rule book, and with the belief that anything is possible... and if you can break down your problems into logical things you can describe... then you can teach yourself how to solve the problem.

My first step was a simple one, I had a manual mailing list which was names and addresses on bits of paper that I photocopied onto Avery label sheets. This was in 1993 and when the mailing list exceeded 2,000 I knew a computer could do this easier then I could. I purchased an IBM 386 and had no internet access (or knowledge that it existed) and could only learn from books as I also knew no programmers.

I purchased a book called Programming Perl, and just set to it. I think it took about 2 weeks to get the full mailing list application built, with flat-file datastore, printing, etc all complete and working. Looking back, everything was horrible about the implementation, it was ugly, inefficient, virtually unmaintainable... but it worked.

By 1996 I had started selling merchandise to the mailing list and written stock management, VAT accounting and reconciliation, the paper mailing list, an email marketing list, a shopping cart web-site, a community area on the web-site. This was effectively a shift from hobby programmer into a professional programmer and the start of a career in computing.

If I had been told those things were hard, or belonging to the problem domain of highly educated programmers, then perhaps I wouldn't have tried.

Believing in advance that anything was possible gave me the motivation to persevere, an obstacle would clearly be overcome if I could just stand back and think clearly about it.

After that... just carry on solving problems. Every time you have a new problem you gain fresh experience. Over time, that adds up.

My parents bought me one of these when I was in basic school:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZX_Spectrum

I was happy playing games for a few weeks and then it broke. It took one month to fix, so meanwhile I was left with the BASIC manual it came with. I read it to withstand the cravings and when I got the computer back I was already more interested in coding than playing games.

I'm mostly self-taught. When I was very young (kindergarten age, if Irecall correctly), I attended a few QBasic courses at a local college,took some VB (it was billed as "advanced computer programming") at asummer camp when I was 15 or so, but other than those, no formaltraining.

I remember writing BASIC on the Apple IIGS computer in my first gradeclassroom, playing with HTML in second grade, but my big breaks camearound 6th iirc. I helped move an online community from a hostedbulletin-board provided (ezBoard) to a hosted phpBB instance, and hackedon that code for a while, but was nothing serious. Write a few scraps ofPHP here and there before getting into Python, and did web developmentin that for a while.

Over time, though, I've followed this gradual descent down toward themetal, learning C from K&R (great book) while holding down aPython/ActionScript day job and occupyng myself outside of work learninghow to design C APIs and writing a few libraries. Thesecond-to-most-recent position I held involved Python and Ruby at work,and I contributed some code to the Linux kernel in my free time (someUSB audio stuff). The position after that was for Linux kerneldevelopment and other low-level embedded systems work. I've tried to getinto infosec a few times but nothing's panned out.

Currently I'm getting a startup off the ground (surprise, surprise).Desktop software, audio production, lots of real-time DSP,lock/wait-free data structures, some OpenGL...I'm happy as can be.

To answer your questions:

1/ Totally self-taught from books and RTFM. Lots of help from the Internet as well, though I own my fair share of college texts.

2/ I'm 24 now, started learning around 2001 I think (when I was about 11).

3/ Got my first development gig at 17.

I'm a self-taught iOS developer (language: Objective-C) an interest that began when I was 15/16 in 2009. Tried to learn it from Apple's documentation and the few online manuals there were back then, but wasn't ever able to grasp making apps any more complex than just a few buttons!

Started again properly about a year and a half ago when I began college (I'm 20 now - and I'm doing a Business Management degree), and haven't looked back since. You are right in saying that StackOverflow has literally changed the many people learn code because of how vast its library now is (for iPhone especially). Never had any formal education whatsoever I've only ever read one book (http://www.apress.com/9781430236023), which was a complete beginner's guide. Everything else has been online tutorials (make sure you do your research and corroborate information on which blogs/sites are best to learn from for your chosen language), and Apple's amazing documentation.

As I am still in college, most of my projects are 'side'-projects, but with each iteration they're getting stronger. Collaborated with an SME to make an educational app and now have a contractual and in-house app lined up before Christmas. It's difficult to freelance like this, but the funding (loan) that comes with going to college means that I haven't needed to find a 'proper' job yet.

Never give up trying to learn, if you enjoy doing it. If you don't enjoy it, don't try to learn it past the point of caring. I constantly felt an 'impostor' syndrome-like feeling when working for the first company I worked with, but in reality, consistent hard work for at least a year will put you ahead of most average outsourcing operations for basic stuff. Try and validate your learning, too keep a blog and constantly ask questions, either on SO or your language's forum of choice. A milestone for me was when I was accepted on student scholarship to attend WWDC this summer. Take it from me, you can achieve something similar if you make sure you don't slack!

I wish you the best of luck.

I just got obsessed with it while still in grade school and spent all of my spare time learning and trying stuff. I started hundreds of little useless projects, all of them out of my league.

Pre-planned courses never appealed to me at all, maybe because of some slight ADD tendencies. They try to titrate knowledge in a steady, regulated, and pedagogic way. That just bores the shit out me. The only thing that even remotely excites me is diving into doing things that are too difficult for me, failing, beating my head against my desk, asking real people for help (not supervisors or TA's), making tiny exhilarating steps of progress.

I'm generally very skeptical about all kinds of teaching, upbringing, and so on. Like when parents and educators try to ensure that their kids turn out good by adhering to various "time-honored" methods and curricula, and fail to realize that they're just locking their kids up for decades, ineffectively preaching at them while they wait for the break so they can talk about whatever they're actually, genuinely, vitally interested in.

Maybe I'm just weird, but to me joining a MOOC seems like tying oneself up in chains to learn how to walk. There does seem to be people who actually find sustainable motivation in that sort of thing, but the statistics seem to say they're not as many as those who only think they will.

By all means dabble around with some courses to get your feet wet, but don't expect to become a good programmer by following other peoples' curricula!

Self taught. No choice about that in 1967. No computers in schools, no such thing as a CS degree, and anyway for family reasons I had to drop out. By pure chance I got a job as a computer commissioning tech at a local computer manufacturer - Elliott Brothers Automation; my job was to take room sized discrete component mainframes from their hand-wired manufacturing stage and make them work so they could be shipped to their new owners (typically universities or research labs). First day on the job, 19 years old, they lead me to a work station, point at the 'scope, the Crown sized blueprints, and the machine, and say "make it work. See you at lunch". I did. Both. No idea how, pure babe in the woods, but turned out my mind just works that way. So after a few months, I had noticed they turned the reference machine off outside 9-5 work hours, and got permission to turn it back on for my own purposes. The rest is history.

I have been at this for over 45 years as a cross-disciplinary hardware and software designer ever since. Still techie, at 66 years old, still nicely gainfully employed, still young at heart (if with a few creaky bits now:). Still mostly self taught, still inventing stuff that did not exist before. Yes, along the way for my own satisfaction I got the B. Sc and most of an M. Sc, but neither were required by my employers. Also, as somebody already mentioned, I have been recruited to every change in my career, or founded start-ups (with funding based on my design abilities), by people who knew me. Other than that first chance, I have never got a job by submitting a resume. And even that first job was by referral from an interviewer for a different job, after we had chatted for a while. Every change always started with my phone ringing.

I do not attribute this career to inborn talent, although I certainly turned out to have some. I attribute it to wide eyed curiosity and a perpetual feeling of "what? you want to actually _pay_ me to do this?", and its concomitant continuous learning and inventing. And to nobody telling me what I wanted to do was impossible.

I'm self taught and it was an "interesting" wade into the water, so-to-speak. One of my first projects was building a small forum starting around 1995-96 as a teenager (originally in Perl/CGI, then ASP/VB and finally ASP.Net/C#). I was very late to PHP and despite most of it's warts and incredible ease with which to shoot yourself in the foot, I still think it's easier to start for a novice and one of the best intro tools to web development.

Along the way, there were forums like FxZone (of Eyeball-design), which closed unfortunately, and a myriad of other tutorial sites, forums, communities (most of which
