Recently I found a post titled, Ask HN: Am I crazy? (https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=801208)
The OP had laid out his desires to travel around the United States after finishing college to meet up with founders around the country and write about them. I was happy to see that the HN community encouraged him. I shot him an email at 1am the night I discovered the post asking if he ever went on the adventure. I never heard back.
This is a good exercise in learning to communicate and to manage your image. Present things in way they can relate. For example, you can present open-source like getting involved in your local community or a local business organization. You do things for free (in real world organizations you have member events, volunteering, etc) and you gain valuable business connections and expertise.
The 'construction worker' analogy can be put aside if you can present them a career plan. Research the jobs you want to get, get information on salary and benefits, and explain to your family that this holds a good future for you.
pg has a PhD in computer science from Harvard. Do you think his undergrad GPA was low?
You have four years to get a decent GPA, you have your entire life to contribute to open source. You can possibly do both while in college, but the former might be more important.
Perhaps you are misdiagnosing the problem?
One thing that I've decided is to stop worrying about what they think. Ya they are your family but don't let them dictate your life or dissuade from what you want to do. I live in Missouri, and plan on moving to SF when I graduate. No one in my family is happy about that, but it isn't going to change anything. You still love them, they still love you. They obviously are concerned about your future. That's excellent because the startup path is not an easy one and encouragement is welcome.
As far as grades go, they aren't the most important thing, but don't let them tank. Keep them manageable. They have taken a lower priority for me but I am still able to keep them to about half A's, half B's. That's fairly sufficient for anyone as long as you have a lot of side work so show for the rest of your knowledge. I can tell you I've learned more on my own than I have in any of my classes.
Overall, don't worry about your family's perception of you because it will improve and they will eventually see where this path leads. People see startups as a big failure, but simply put you fail to succeed. Just keep pursuing your passion.
Many employers give more weight on open source work than on GPA. I guess you could try to explain him that (you could use architects as an analogy: would he hire an architect with a great GPA but no portfolio or an architect with a great portfolio but a bad GPA?).
Of course that's going to take a while, and it could get really annoying if they keep nagging all that time. It would help a lot if you could get the idea across that real skill trumps GPA. Find some examples of highly successful programmers that didn't graduate.
Whether these truths are bad things is another matter though. Where would the world be without construction workers? Can you imagine what a building would cost if the architects also had to do the actual construction? And would it be a better building for it? And who would have heard of Linus Torvalds if he hadn't written some open source software? Your name on a popular project is a great advertisement for yourself. It gives you a broader choice of employers and it helps your salary negotiation.
I read something yesterday that resonates here - it was a something like "Remember all those kids in school who always asked the teacher, 'Will this be on the test?' They were on to something. It's your job to know what the important metrics that you will be judged by, and it's your job to make sure those metrics are where they should be." Well, you know the metric - GPA - and you are letting it slide because you are doing side projects. Let's swap this out with music and see it from a different perspective: "Any attempt at explaining why my GPA is getting lower and lower as I focus on my music outside of class is futile."
The key point I'm trying to make is that you are distracted. You can say, "Yes, but I'm doing side projects that help me become a better programmer." Fine - that does make it better. But when your future prospective employer looks at your resume and compares it to 3-5 other candidates, will they cut you the same slack you are giving yourself?
So I know a lot of conservatives who do open source, who do all sorts of new things -- after they've been around for a few years. I guess die-hard conservatives might wait 50 years or so before trying new stuff? Usually these guys aren't in IT, though. You have to remember that in IT something like 80% of what we use refreshes every couple of years.
I had a very similar problem with my parents who were very liberal! To them there were established ways of trying new things. It wasn't an issue of trying new stuff. It was that they had a different mental model of reality than what I was experiencing. It took a long time before they finally figured out what I was telling them.
There are a lot of conservative people who teach interpretive dance, improvisational acting, or creative writing. Likewise, there are a lot of liberal people who are lifers at various BigCorps, are lawyers for the man, and so on. Don't confuse the comic book definition of things with how things actually work.
So the problem here is, at least from your brief description, is not that your family doesn't want you doing new-fangled stuff. It might be that they don't understand how the technology field works. It also might be that somebody is paying for college and you're spending your time chasing stuff that doesn't look like college to them. Could be a lot of things, actually. I think more information is needed.
It's one thing to want to freeform chase your dreams. It's another thing to commit to a structured regimen of training. Sounds like your family is expecting one thing from you and you want to do another. As long as they aren't writing the checks and you're not making a mistake by going in debt for something you're not using, sounds to me like you get to decide. Time for an honest talk.
Also, and this is tricky for tech folks, you just may never be able to convey what the tech world looks like to them. IBM lifers have a much different view of tech than SV types. (Each tends to disdain the other, but that's a story for another day)
Buck up, kid! If you want to spend your evenings building free software to change the world, go for it. But that means you have a communication job ahead with the family -- one that might take many years to accomplish.
Yeah, these are the values of the rat race culture we've been nurturing so far. And look where that has taken us. Sanity?
But if you do, you know you're on the right path, so go out there and kick ass! :)
Then you're part of the problem! The attitude is, if it doesn't fit the "Hacker News" relevancy stereotype then flag away. Have you not wondered or even humbled yourself to consider that perhaps your own view is more short-sighted than the posters? I guess flagging in general takes an error ratio into account but it's my experience that it's far too swift here on HN, meaning more weight is given to the flaggers than the posters.
Honestly though, thank-you for asking and posting your actions here for discussion! That, in my opinion, is a lot better than the countless silent flaggers everywhere flags exist.
The flagging system is to weed out spam, advertisements, offensive/porn, etc. This is flagging abuse IMHO.
The passwords themselves however are encrypted, and the only way to get them back to plain text is through the decryption key which is your Google password/secondary key. When you sign into Chrome (and sync to the Google servers) your encrypted password is transmitted along with the settings, bookmarks etc. As a result, Google only has the information stored in an encrypted state and do not have the key to decrypt it.
The only way your passwords are not safe is if, your machine becomes compromised.
Would love to know what everyone thinks of it!
We have been getting some slow and steady usage despite being overshadowed by QuizUp which launched a week after us (also a great game)
Would love people's thoughts as we are currently building the next version.
Imagine a wikipedia where each sub-section is paginated to generate more page views like Salon or Newsweek. This is why I think we should support wikipedia directly, so that wikipedia's goal is to make and awesome experience so that we donate again.
Adding ads to Wikipedia would give ad providers the ability to trace your Wikipedia activity. This would be horrible because the average person would not understand that their wikipedia history was being revealed to third parties and this history is often highly personal. For nontechnical users who do not know about this tracking, this would be deceitful. For nontechnical users who do know of the tracking but do not know how to stop this tracking, having ads would severely compromise their ability to use Wikipedia since they must then become cautious of the way they browse.
This is the same reason why Consumer Reports doesn't take paid advertising in their publications either.
Q: Wouldn't it be better If Wikipedia had ads than planet-wide thermonuclear war?
One problem is that even if you can make it hard for a script to break, you can hire an guy overseas to fill in captchas for you for fractions of a cent. Most alternatives have other problems - Things like "Slide this bar", or "Click on the Foo" have been tried over and over and over - They're either too hard for people, or too easy to break.
Keep in mind how good computers are at object recognition these days - It's likely that most captchas are going to be easier to defeat by a computer than they are by a middle-aged person with bad-eyesight.
So what a lot of people end up doing is using things like recaptcha, where Google can add additional heuristics, such as "how many captchas has this IP done today", and vary things up - They can also use a large source corupus of pictures which have already failed THEIR AI, so they know they're hard.
My biggest problem with this solution, however, is that it sends every user's IP to Google - Google has enough insight into users already - Things like Google Analytics/adsense/recaptcha just give them additional touchpoints :/
Task: Users filter results but need to send a request to the server on each filter. They will probably filter ~40-50 times to fine-tune their search but ever since I introduced a captcha the use rate of the tool dramatically decreased. Curious what you have in mind.
1. I have a little list of companies looking for employees that I'll send you. Not much just companies that have contacted me looking for people.2. I am a bad ass writer and have a crazy resume, but more importantly I know how to craft resumes and I'll look at yours and help you fix it up.3. If you're in the San Francisco area I'll meet up with you and listen to what happened and see if there's a way to work out of it, or at least listen.4. If you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I'll talk with you and see if there's other ways I can help.
I'm serious, hit me up on email and I'll help out if I can. In fact, this goes for anyone else looking for work right now. Email the above and I'll reply with my little list. I don't make commissions on placement or anything like that, just a good thing to do.
As background, a typical graphics stack looks like this, from bottom to top. All components are designed, implemented, and maintained by the GPU manufacturer:
1. Graphics card is presented to the kernel through some mechanism. On Android/ARM, this was as a device memory mapped into a hardware-specified set of addresses. This layer provides the computational component.
2. A kernel driver whose function is to accept GPU code and funnel it down to the device through the appropriate mechanism. This layer provides the input/output mechanisms necessary to communicate with the device, and contains knowledge about the communication protocol the card follows.
3. An OpenGL driver. This is basically a compiler than accepts sequences of OpenGL calls, and translates them down to the hardware-level implementation. Most knowledge of the computational details of the GPU's architecture lives here.
Of these layers, only the kernel driver, number 2, was open source when I worked with it. This is because it links into the Linux kernel, and so needs to be GPL (Not certain about this, please feel free to correct me.) In any case, this component does not contain much or any "secret sauce," so it's fairly safe to share.
The rest of the components, however, are closed source. The reasons for this are:
1. The GPU hardware's architectural design is a trade secret. Even the instruction set architecture is closed source. The reason for this is that much of the competitive advantage a GPU manufacturer might enjoy stems from the speed (and power efficiency) of its GPU architecture. Publishing the architecture would basically provide the GPU maker's competitors access to valuable intellectual property: a lot of research goes into designing a good ISA, and you could probably tell a lot about how the device functions if you had access to the ISA spec.
2. Following this rationale, keeping the ISA secret allows the manufacturer a great deal of flexibility. They have no reason to worry about backwards compatibility because they own the product, so they can do whatever they want with it: add instructions, remove instructions, change calling conventions, whatever.
For comparison, one of Intel's (many) strengths is its robust backward compatibility for its ISA. The basic outline of Intel's x86 ISA have been unchanged for decades, and when they do roll out changes, they're additive rather than subtractive, and they take years to fully roll out. Secrecy presumably allows GPU makers to turn things around as quickly as they feel necessary by freeing them of this backward compatibility constraint.
3. I'm less confident about this point, but I presume there are some tricks they do in implementing the OpenGL library driver. Wherever there are multiple competing implementations of something, you're guaranteed to have tricks the various implementors are proud of.
tl;dr: Keeping drivers secret allow manufacturers to obfuscate their architectural implementation, protecting their intellectual property and affording them a measure of flexibility when they want to make changes to it.
The reasons given for graphics drivers not being open are quite reasonable and I will exclude that quality from that discussion.
Many other devices are so basic that the driver is little more than a variation of the example code in the SDK (I'm considering Windows drivers here). Yet the manufacturers guard the source code for their version of the driver as they would if there was something really valuable in there.
In some software the driver is just a simple layer between the application and the hardware, most of the implementation is in the application and the driver could be opened and still maintain compatibility with the application.
At the same time users that are interested could be utilities or applications that improve what the user could do with the hardware.
I'll pass. I like my cash anonymous & stable. If you want part of mine, earn it by trading something I value.
The other important concept is that (not saying I have all the answers) each person is free to spend his / her currency as they please. No "mining". But the "ledger" can be synchronized with what may resemble "FOREX markets" but the point of these markets isn't to allow you to trade other currencies on other block chains, but it's to help determine what that individual's currency is worth.
If done right, then theoretically the person(s) who are right in the middle of the bell curve have the most valuable currency, and those at least one or more standard deviations from the center have less value.
The catch is that those people who you transact business / exchange currencies with, the "currency markets" will generate the exchange rate and convert the money into your currency units.
Theoretically the "currency markets", there would be many of them, and likely there could be many within a geographic area comparable in size to a U.S. County.
Ultimately the overarching goal would be that those who spend too much or too little will ultimately pay the price with a loss in currency value.
I think one of the keys here will be to try to create a set of checks and balances to help ensure people can't just create tons of accounts, and start using them all. So perhaps a concept of "type" of transaction will be important. For example, the blockchain shows how much the individual spends on "housing", "food", etc...
The math gets hairy and you need a metric truckload of time/traffic to do anything useful with this, especially as you get to many types of conversions of interest or many different variables under consideration, as the nature of statistics means you'll always be able to find some correlation if you look in enough places. "Look doing Signup Form B and disabling private messaging decreases friend requests by 18% in month 3 with 99.999% probability!" [+]
+ This is not actually what the math is telling you.
That said, there are common things that can be done, many of which have already been mentioned.
For AWS, make sure that you have at least two EC2 instances running, and they're configured to sit behind an elastic load balancer, then make sure that autoscaling has been set up.
As dirktheman says, Make sure that you're sitting behind Cloudfront for caching benefits. Also, make sure that your static files are all being hosted appropriately on a static server (Nginx, Apache, etc) and not by the application server.
Consider implementing memcache. This may or may not fit every applications, but if you have some common queries that are likely to be hit during a traffic spurt, having them resident in memory takes some of the load off of the database, if there is one.
Assuming RDS, definitely be using Multi-AZ instances, and also consider setting up read replicas. If your application is more likely to be read than written to, read replicas are an easy way to ensure that the application will still work for those writing to it (generally, paying customers) while mitigating traffic spikes typically common to media blitzes. Also, having an architecture that supports the easy addition of read replicas affords greater scale-up-ability.
Above and beyond that, everything's pretty application-specific. If you wrote the app in Rails, try to find a Rails-production-ready checklist. Same thing if Django, Java, whatever.
You can find out more here: http://telesc.pe/
And launch your own instance through Giteor here: https://giteor.com/deploy?git=com.github.SachaG.Telescope.ma...
I wrote something similar in golang. An example is http://askgolang.com/ and the package itself with demo code is at https://github.com/carbocation/go.graf
Of course, this can be done in any language, but I found to quite pleasant (and safe).
Good luck m8

First become a pg in your specific area, someone whom everyone in this specific industry sees as highly knowledgeable, good-networked and.... for SW choose a good one suggested here. Use hnsearch to find more (for example USV, lobster.rs, reddit source code)
If you don't have programming skills you're better of off just starting a subreddit. The hard part in these is building the community.
A better strategy might be to find a subreddit with a community and try to take over it somehow (communicate with mods or pay them to take over).
To me it looks way better, but it depends on your needs. Ruby.

I've been working 100% remotely for more than two years now, feel free to ask questions: egor.ryabkov at gmail
- Wouldn't you want to work towards genuinely making the world a better place?
- Wouldn't you want to work in a close-knit team alongside some of the brightest engineers in the industry?
- Wouldn't you want to work on solving interesting problems that haven't been solved before?
At Khan Academy, I truly believe that you can find all of those things and more. We're a small, 50-person nonprofit tech startup making a big difference in the world. A few weeks ago, we found this great story through the fascinating blog "Humans of New York" please take a moment to read it:
This is just one story, but every month we hear about hundreds of lives that we've transformed, and there are thousands more we don't hear about.
Lots of people know us for Sal's videos, but we also have hundreds of videos by other teachers and a huge library of math practice exercises. Our 100,000+ practice problems have been done over 1.5 billion times total. That's a huge number.
This gives us the ability to study learning in a way that no one has previously been able to do. We've run tests which show that students learn more when they're advanced quicker by a custom machine-learning algorithm . As I write this we're running dozens of A/B tests to learn what we can do to make people learn more, from testing how review scheduling affects accuracy to simply testing different teaching styles.
Whether you're a machine learning guru or you take pride in perfecting UI details for a dropdown menu , we have something for you. You'll be working alongside a small team with the best in the business though we have "celebrity" devs like jQuery creator John Resig and Google's first employee (and former Director of Technology) Craig Silverstein, we have many more you haven't heard of but who are just as awesome.
I'm going to put in a special plug for mobile: Around 20% of our traffic comes from phones and tablets but we have only two people (me and one other person) working on our apps right now. Our iOS app is fairly basic, but it already has a few million downloads. We want to make it awesome. If you're a mobile developer we can build a great team around, please reach out. You can't find this sort of opportunity in very many places.
We're hiring engineers (web, mobile, data science), product designers, a community manager, and more. Oh, and if you want to have a great summer (or fall or spring) building real features for real users, we're hiring interns too.

Two years ago Justin.tv created Twitch, a website that's become the most successful application of live streaming video so far. Now we're working on doing the same thing again, for a different niche. We have access to the impressive resources of the Twitch juggernaut, but Justin.tv is still a small and largely independent group, so we get to make our own rules when we want to get things done quickly. It's easily the most fun I've had in my career, and I think the other guys on our team would say the same.

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 DEVELOPER As 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 ENGINEERING The 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!

DaisyBill does workers' compensation e-billing for the state of California.
We're a small company with 5 people in NYC and 2 in California.
Workers' Comp is a vastly underserved part of the medical billing trade which has been a struggle for all parties involved: the injured worker, the practice that performs services on the injured worker, and the insurance companies that handle the claims/bills. Electronic billing aims to make the situation better.
Effective October 18, 2012, all claims administrators (insurance companies, self-insured employers, et al) for California workers compensation claims are required to be able to receive bills electronically.
DaisyBill is the facilitator for practices to take advantage of this new law, allowing them to enter in the information about services rendered, seeing both what they should charge for the services and what they should expect to be paid (as these are not always the same). DaisyBill manages the entire billing process, both sending the bill electronically and managing the responses about the status of the bill, including when it was paid and how much. As a result of using DaisyBill, practices are paid more quickly and accurately than when they submit bills via paper/snail mail. We're talking 15 days instead of 60, 90, or more. This makes practices more likely to take on injured workers as patients, an obvious benefit for all parties.
We're looking for someone to help us with a new product/revenue stream we're going to be developing shortly. This product is a new fee calculator as the current one is expiring after the new year. We're also going to be integrating with third party billers that are currently unable to submit workers comp bills electronically. There is no shortage of work to be done and there is a lot of money to be made.
I'm Kris, the CTO and sole developer at DaisyBill. Previously I was at ThoughtWorks, then Pivotal Labs. I decided to get out of consulting and into a product company because I wanted to own the product I was working on. DaisyBill is the only company out of many I considered that has a solid business plan with an intent to make a lot of money and do some good in the process.
You would be pairing reasonably regularly for the first few weeks but be expected to work independently not long after joining, asking questions as necessary. We also do a loose form of TDD: I typically like to sketch out an idea before trying to bake it in with tests. I also don't test every line of code. I believe in being pragmatic about testing. We use RSpec and Jasmine.
I do interviews similarly to the way they're done at Pivotal: After chatting about what you're looking for in a position I'd have you come in and pair on some code. I care a lot about the interview process allowing the candidate to suss out whether the work environment and the actual work is what they're interested in. I don't do conference room whiteboard programming.
I don't have a degree, and I don't expect you to have one, either. I don't necessarily care about how long you've been a developer, either. I care about the quality of your code today and your approach to solving problems. If you're capable and can show it, I'm interested.
You may reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
We're an eyewear company looking for engineers to help architect and build our API, which powers eyeglass orders for fashion brands. We are also looking for people to help us build our whitelabel eyewear software, and iterate on new UX features - we do a lot of AngularJS.
Our stack is Python (Flask) and MongoDB . Including bits of Celery, nginx, and uwsgi. We do a lot of integration with the UPS (in fact, we maintain an open-source UPS library ).
We're building our API and internal dashboards (which we use heavily to process orders, eyewear prescriptions, customer information, gift cards, etc.) We white-label eyewear for other fashion brands; Classic Specs and Steven Alan are some of our brands. Email me!

We're a financial media company, a poor man's - lest we say everyday man's - Bloomberg competitor, and a financial product SaaS all forged together into a powerful trident that is attacking the high seas of Wall Street in a relentless pursuit of transparency.
And conquer we shall! We've grown 100% quarter over quarter all this year. Our team has surged to 30+ people and the waves of revenue washed together to form a rushing roar with just one of our products going from nothing to $100k/month in just 9 months.
Being a media company we find our way into all kinds of cool stuff. Our office is furnished with things like a $3000 high-end bed that was sent to us to review. We got to talk to and get pictures with Warren Buffett and Lloyd Blankfein (CEO of Goldman Sachs) when they came to Detroit last week.
But, you interject, finance is one of the toughest startup seas to sail upon! The old boys club runs an ironclad ship with no visible decks for boarding. Avast! We've built a battering ram of a business in just a few short years that has pummeled its way deep into the heart of Wall Street. Old Ironsides has warmed itself to Benzinga and once a taste the thirst cannot be quenched.
We've recently became Microsoft's premier finance partner alongside 3 other companies, all worth over a billion dollars and established for years. As of this Christmas season we will be installed by default on 500 million desktops and tablets via Windows 8 Finance. No download necessary. That's right mateys, we're in the source code.
And if you happen to trade or invest yourself you'll find us inside almost all of the major brokerages in the US.
So, where do you fit in this rigging, you swashbuckling scalawag? Well, our team is crazy ambitious, motivated, and experienced with shaking shit up. If you know your tech, and want on deck this is the place to do it. Your exact technical background and language of choice doesn't matter as much as your motivation and your ability to adapt quickly. We are a young team and we're especially looking for sailors who've got some salt in their whiskers who can help us scale from millions to hundreds of millions.
Why be a ninja when you can be a pirate? This ship is forging a new course, send an email to email@example.com to board!
Mixpanel (YCS09; http://mixpanel.com) is the most advanced advanced analytics platform ever for web & mobile applications. We're profitable, with millions in monthly revenue, and we're backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Sequoia Capital, and Max Levchin.
We have two types of engineering positions available - systems and product.
Systems engineers build and scale our infrastructure, and write mostly C, C++, and Python. These are the people working on our custom datastore. This position requires at least 2 years of experience writing systems software. Solid C experience is a plus.
Product engineers build the parts people interact with - reporting interfaces, APIs, dataviz stuff, and more - and write mostly Python, JS, and Less.This position requires at least 2 years of software engineering experience, no specialization required. Solid JS experience is a plus though.
The engineering team is still small (8), and there's a lot of interesting stuff to do. Happy to talk details.
If you are interested, drop me a line - firstname.lastname@example.org.
== Who we are ==
We're a team of 10 highly-trained but still fun developers building a new car dealership web platform that's going to power the web sites of our hundreds of clients across Canada.
We're working closely with a product team (marketing, design) and a production team (HTML programmers).
== Why it's interesting? ==
- Build a high-performance responsive web framework that is heavily customizable
- Connect to 10 legacy DBs and render a page under 50 ms
- Build a platform, work on API usability and interact with users to improve it
- Work on the automated deployment and monitoring of hundreds of web sites and web applications each week
If your pupils dilated at least once while reading, it would be interesting for both of us to work together :-)
== How we do it ==
- The infra team uses puppet, Fabric, nginx, and uWSGI.
- The backend team uses Django, celery, PostgreSQL, redis, memcached.
- The frontend team uses SASS, Compass, Backbone.js, and a heavily modified version of Twitter Bootstrap.
We love code reviews, daily standup meetings, campfire, contributing to open source, and paying for education (code school anyone?).
We hate long meetings, code without test, vendors selling things we did not build yet.
== Perks ==
- A ping pong table and some nerf guns (if that's your thing).
- Research and Development (we have a research grant with McGill University)
- A big office with wooden floors, brick and stone walls, located in the Old Montreal.
- Boring but important stuff like health insurance!
If you are interested, contact me at email@example.com with your resume and optionally, your github profile. Bonus points for bribes like github stars on my personal (https://github.com/bartdag/) or industrial repositories (https://github.com/auto123/).
Who We are
Founders: ex-Google and ex-Playhaven. Industry veterans. Our values: Pragmatic, Stable, Reasonable (except when it comes to playing along with "industry conventional wisdom"), Family Friendly, a certain knowing... wry air.
Who You are
You love tinkering with low level Unix, have significant amount of working C or C++ code under your belt. You are frequenty heard asking, "But how does it actually work under the hood?". (You need NOT be a superstars/rockstars/Ninjas/10x'rs or any other mythical creature... we find mythical creatures scary).
H1-B transfers ok. Fresh H1-B applications ok if you have other visa authorization or some other way (perhaps from outside the US) to continue working during April-October timeframe (H1-B candidates know what I speak of)
Located preferably in the Bay area (but remote work possible for right candidate)
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, back-end data engineers, and front-end data visualization interaction designers.
If you're focused on the backend, you should have experience with high write performance DBs (e.g. Redis, Cassandra), large-scale log analysis (e.g. Hadoop, Pig, Hive), and big distributed cloud systems (e.g. >20 node cloud deployments). That will mean you'll hit the ground running here.
For the front-end, you should know modern web and mobile design principles and be particularly excited by d3.js and its associated ecosystem.
You'd be joining the company at a great time. Our engineering team is still small enough that we feel like an elite task force, 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.
Also, if you happen to be an experienced software engineer who wants to end up in a role with a mixture of product management, customer interaction, and individual contributions to the code, we have just the position for you. Let us know -- we're looking for you.
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.
Apply by sending a (short!) cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Mention this HN post and say you're looking for Andrew.
Include links to online portfolio, Github, LinkedIn, or any similar services, if you have them. If you have a Python code example that you think expresses your Python coding style, that would also be a good thing to send along (as plain attachment, Github Gist, or similar).
At CircleCI we're building the next generation of developer automation: amazing Continuous Integration and Deployment. We have traction and revenue and funding and great customers. Our customers love us, because we move quickly, build great things, and provide amazing support. Everyone talks to customers a lot.
We're still a small team, so you'll have a large impact on company culture. We're highly influenced by Valve's Employee handbook, and have as flat a structure as we can.
We're looking for frontend engineers (JS), designers (must be able to HTML+CSS), and backend engineers (Clojure). Being a mix of those is of course welcome! We lean towards senior experienced engineers, or junior engineers who can display great talent.
We're also looking for engineers for sales and marketing positions. Since we have an incredibly technical product, and selling directly to developers, the marketing positions (dev evangelism, CRO, analytics, content, etc - think a patio11-style engineer) require significant development experience. Sales positions are a good fit for engineers looking for a change, esp those who love automating manual processes.

Red Hot Labs (RHL) is looking for full-stack engineers at all levels that want to work on cutting edge business intelligence & machine-learning tools and services for mobile developers.
- Write both server and client-side code for massively scalable analytics architectures. (We can teach you this!) - Actively learn and work with new technologies. Theres a very good chance youll pick up experience with a new language / technology stack here! - Collaborate closely with our CEO and the rest of our team to develop products and services with a high quality user-experience. - Architect and own big parts of our infrastructure.
Were a small 4-person FUNDED startup founded by the guys who made FarmVille and CityVille. Were building business intelligence tools and services that we think are missing from the mobile ecosystem. This is not our first startup; our last one was acquired by Zynga and led to them being able to IPO using our core-tech and games.
Our company culture is one built on learning and the belief that everyone is a student and everyone is a teacher. We want to work with folks that inspire us to learn more and do our best work. We invest in our employees and want to help you grow in both your core skill-set and other areas you may be interested in. We can afford to do this while were small.
We originally began building mobile games and realized there was a big hole in mobile business intelligence and in bringing together and understanding all of the data that exists out there. We focus on shipping quickly and constantly (our first product was built in 6 weeks with no pre-existing client-side code), so this is a great place to experience shipping multiple products.
We have since shut down the development of games and are focusing 100% on our tools and service products. We still maintain and run the games and use them as test beds for new ideas.
- WORKCATIONS! Were a small company so we do unscalable things such as rent a house for the whole team and spend a week working from a Ski-house Tahoe or in a beach-house in Hawaii. - Early-stage startup equity grants - Health/Dental/Vision insurance
- Redis, Couchbase, Rails for our backend API. - Mostly AWS with a little bit of Heroku for our hosting. - AngularJS, jQuery, Underscore for our dashboard and web apps. - 3rd party services: Facebook, Mixpanel, Stripe, Mailgun

NBCUniversal - Research Assistant, Data Science & Predictive Analytics.
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.
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.
Apologies if you've contacted me before from outside London and I didn't get back to you. :( If you contacted me from London and didn't hear back, please do so again!

Everyone has data, and it's always growing. This growth in data means that we need an effective way to store massive amounts of data. OpenStack Swift is designed to effectively store massive amounts of data while providing high durability, high availability, and support massive concurrency across the entire data set. SwiftStack is building management, monitoring, and integration tools to turn the Swift storage engine into an effective storage solution that is used by millions, daily.
So far this year, we've built out global clusters for a major expense reporting and travel support site, provided the storage system for Disney Interactive's gaming platform, and integrated Swift into radical new hard drive technology from Seagate. We're currently working with companies like Intel and Box to build support for erasure codes into Swift.
My vision for OpenStack Swift is that it will be used by everyone, every day, even if they don't realize it. Swift is storage that is built for the web and already powers some of the world's largest storage clouds. I would like to work with you at SwiftStack to see this vision become a reality.
Interested? Send us an email at email@example.com. Send us your github profile, your LinkedIn account, a link to your website whatever will best display the work that youve done. Tell us in a few lines of text why youre interested in SwiftStack, and why well be interested in you. Well be back in touch shortly to get the conversation started.

iOS Developer / CTO
I'm a guy who's last project was funded by Elon Musk and featured on Bloomberg, Good Morning America, Business Insider, and most of the tech press, and I'm now looking for an iOS developer to serve as CTO (and, optionally, co-founder) for my next startup.
You'd be joining me in working together on an awesome opportunity to build something big and have a huge impact. (This is my third startup -- I was on the founding team of Hotline, whose chat software was used by millions of people (even Dave Morin told me he was a "huge" Hotline user) and by companies like Apple; the Toronto Star called it "a major force in the online world" at the time.)
Now, I'm working on a mobile startup launching first on iOS and we're looking for an awesome iOS developer. We're stealth and I can't reveal details publicly because we're required to be under the radar while being considered for launching publicly at a major tech conference in SF attended by 8,000 people, but contact me if you're an iOS developer and I can send you more details, and we can talk!
CONTACT: firstname.lastname@example.org (a brief note & link to your online profiles (LinkedIn/GitHub/etc) (or just sending a resume) is fine -- we emphasize speed over makework!)
PS: my thesis in college was literally about companies that treat workers well. I really care about being a great guy to work with, and think this will be a really awesome opportunity. :)

Ruby Engineers, Android
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 technology to automatically match supply and demand.
If you're ready to transform the trucking industry, send your resume and GitHub profile to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're the electronic parts search engine that is opening up all technical product data on our website and via API to enable the next generation of hardware design tools.

-- What are we doing? --
We're making a beautiful visual publishing platform enabling people to always have their content look its best. In the month since release we've been featured twice by Apple (Best New Apps and Apps for Friday Night) and have gotten an extremely positive reception.
-- Where do I fit in? --
We're looking for someone sharp to become the second member of our backend team, primarily in a DevOps role. Having a working knowledge of AWS, Chef, and Postgres is a must. Experience with Cassandra and Java on top of that is even better.
We're also looking for web developers fluent in Backbone (or similar) who is up to the task of spearheading our web efforts as well as UI/UX designers who can help to fill out ideas (Objective-C experience a definite plus here)
Beyond the technical specifics, if you're the type who is always learning something new and takes pride in their work, we want to talk to you.
-- What else should I know? --
We're based in DUMBO and would love to meet you! We're a diverse bunch. Members of the team have worked done everything from award-winning video game music to live visuals to open source game engines to being a professional chef.
We'd prefer local to NYC but would by no means discount someone remote with the right stuff. If this sounds interesting, please drop us a line. We'd love to meet and buy you a cup of coffee.

Localytics offers a powerful real-time, cloud-based app analytics and marketing platform. Were proud to help some of the world's most well-known brands like The New York Times, Microsoft, Salesforce and eBay create great mobile experiences for their customers.

This is a great opportunity to work with a team that are using interesting technology to work on interesting problems. The main pre-requisite is a song grasp of Python. The more background you have in data mining the better. There's an expectation that you'll already have worked with a lot of different technologies just because it's the sort of thing that interests you. It's a great chance to put your stamp on a product and solve technical issues in the way that you think is best.
I've been working with them on a part time basis for a couple of years now. They're growing and unfortunately I'm unable to meet their needs (due to other obligations). They need someone to come in and take ownership of the product and help them build a development team around it.
They're great people to work with; passionate, reasonable and realistic. They understand the challenges of software and working with data - especially other people's.
More information about the role is provided on their site . You could either contact them directly, or if you'd prefer to hear more details from me, you can contact me through the information in my profile.
Email usage is changing, but the technology and capabilities haven't caught up to the 21st century. We're a small team of hackers and thinkers who are creating the next generation email optimization platform. Our team has experience at big tech companies (Twitter, Google, SIG) and we want to bring and improve the technology that powers user growth and commerce at these places to everyone. This means writing code that improves the lives of our customers (series seed and series A companies) and their millions of email subscribers.
One of our top level goals is to build a uniquely fun and growth oriented company culture. This is a journey, not a rat race. Knowledge sharing in any capacity is highly valued here -- are you interested in prediction markets or PGP encryption? Do you enjoy teaching posture techniques or purely functional data structures to others? We pair program, design together, and generally create a learn-and-teach environment here.
If you're interested in coming on board, you can help with some challenges we face: - Scale our API to beyond millions of requests - Design and write performant, beautiful interfaces - Write software to build machine learned user models - Make data visualizations for our email and user data - Design an immutable infrastructure for our platformSome aspects of our culture that make us different: - We are all very focused on self improvement - Our company has egalitarian and transparent values: work when you want, on what you want. - We are chill and empathetic people - The company is completely transparent
You'll get to work with us at our office at Kleiner Perkins' startup incubation space in SoMa.If this sounds like an interesting opportunity for you, please email me. -- YW5kcmV3QGl0ZXJhYmxlLmNvbQ==

Given the seed terms; I'm imagining an infinite dub mix, where you pick and mutate beats and fade clips into each other. Too bad our legal system makes such a thing impossible.
And if not, you could seed them yourself :D

If you're under 40 and have 10 years of experience, there's your 80 points. (You also get 10 points for English. What a deal.)
Of course if you want to do research at Google you'll need a PHD. However 99% of dev positions don't require even a BS.
There is a program called "Informa"  which validates the knowledge of experienced craftsmen and gives them a chance to receive the same kind of degree like apprentice graduates. Which also makes them eligible to further education paths, like higher professional schools (to get a diploma if you like).
If you want to move to Switzerland, you don't have to worry about the language. Many IT-companies here are multi cultural and speak both German and English. We have a high quality of life here, the goverment is friendly and our laws favours employees.
I work for a small but successful company in Zurich. We'll move to a bigger office in January 2014 and need skilled developers to fill it :) We mainly create web applications and other cloud solutions, but also windows apps and banking software. We primarily use C#. Oh... and we don't care about certificates and degrees. We need skill, not paper.

With a decade or more of experience, you might just qualify for something like an H1-B and apply for permanent residency while there.
Of course, perhaps you are already in the US and wanting to leave for elsewhere...
Apartment, moving (suitcase + backbag), traveling & the rest was handled by me. When pulling from the right strings and being very determined gets you far.
It is not a simple or quick process to get PR in aus though, took me 18 months.
When I was at Microsoft I hired a guy out of Russia who was self taught, but knew pretty much everything there was to know about Forward Error Correction in Mpeg Transport Streams. So we go him a work visa.
From the work Visa after a time you can convert to a Green Card.
Talk with a recruiter, find something they will need lots of that they can't find in the US. Learn everything there is to know, and get sponsored.
If I had a degree I could get a TN1 VISA, in 6 months I'll have enough work exp to qualify anyway (12 years). I could get an H1B but it seems like too much hassle.
The UK will apparently accept me, I have to say there's a world of difference between UK and US immigration, anytime I've dealt with US immigration I felt like wanting to do anything another than vacation in the US was criminal. In the UK however they seemed A OK as long as I had a return flight, they were even friendly.
Although it didn't pan out as I was extremely jet lagged, sleep deprived and bombed the interview I'd highly recommend talking to Facebook, their people were super accommodating and really went the extra mile to get talent on board. They basically figured out all my VISA options worldwide for me.

We'd love to have a call or card, but if you must spend money, gift cards to specific merchants, (insert list), or cash are acceptable.
At the moment there are only a few very specific things which I really want or need so buying me something random will just result in wasted money on the presenters side and wasted storage space in my side. Right now I have about 15 unread books next to my bed, I have all the tools (software, mechanical/electrical tools) I will ever need, I have about 5 bicycles which I don't use and the only hobby I have right now is fitness and writing my PhD thesis.
If you want to present me something then either present me an Amazon coupon for the unlikely case that I want to order something specific in the net half year or invite me to a nice restaurant.
Hardware toys are cool (mechanical keyboards, arduino, raspberry pi, etc), as many others have said.
But you might consider meatspace items that are nice no matter who you are. I just bought a nice new smartwool hat and titanium spork (for pack lunches!) at REI for my favorite nerd.
It's not the best match for every hacker but for those that care about what Watsi does then it's a really amazing gift.
Answering your question it differs from person to person. I personally wouldn't be interested in receiving a new router, for example, but I do know people who would. I'd like a typewriter more, to be honest. But that's just me.
Lastly, a good gift is one that comes with sincerity. It doesn't matter what it is, as long as its sender sends along warm wishes and sincere affection.
[i guess i should add that the lowest price model - the crack otl headphone amplifier - is not suitable for most headphones. so be careful before buying that one.]
think as cool as mercury, but safer :)
Hacker types also have a great interest in how things are made, if you can combine eating with a cooking class, or drinking with a trip to a brewery then that would work well.
EDIT: .. and a good coffeemaker. :)
