Hits a lot of typical language features but without being a huge time waster on any one. Database access, both stateful and AJAX GUI elements, users, email delivery, and with expansion if you so wish (e.g. hashtags, clickable usernames, tweeting at someone else, and so on).

Big enough to be interesting and feel like you accomplished something but simple enough so you won't spend weeks on it with little to show at the end.

At work, I refactor components with the new language.

At home, I do stuff like taking labs from stanford cs courses and translating to another language.

I don't have one "stock" project that I always use for learning new languages... I just do whatever I happen to be thinking about at the time. Long ago, that meant an AD&D (2nd Ed) character generator. Then it was a training database for the volunteer fire department I was with. Later it was an (aborted) attempt to build a decentralized /federated social-network (something like Diaspora, IOW).

When I started learning Groovy and Grails I just started building a Reddit-like app that would become the first project of what would become Fogbeam Labs.

Now, I'm working on learning to use Angular, so I've decided to start on a product management dashboard thing I wanted to build for internal use here at Fogbeam.

So, advice? Just pick something. You say you don't have an "itch to scratch", well OK... if you don't have something new you want to create, just pick an existing $WHATEVER and port it to your chosen language. Pick something you use regularly so you'll know and understand the domain, and start coding.

It doesn't really matter if you finish it or not, or how good it is. The goal, remember, is to learn the $NEWLANGUAGE not to build a better $WHATEVER. But who knows, maybe the $WHATEVER project will turn out great, and you can wind up actually using it or making a business around it. But if not, it still served it's purpose.

For me, whenever I'm working on a meta-issue (laerning a new language, learning a new software pipeline, learning a new documentation/testing style), I like to pick a simple library in a problem domain I'm familiar with.

So, for example, I like doing a simple 2D vector math library--I am pretty familiar with the topic matter so I don't think about it much and can focus on how the language or whatever feels. I also can easily tell if the implementation is borked and can benchmark it as I try different things.

A simple entity system with messaging is another example of something that is simple and bounded but lets you try out different parts of the language.

A game of breakout is a really good one as well--combines both of the above, and lets you play with graphics and input and whatnot.

Then again, picking a problem domain that is deliberately outside what the language's sweet spot is not usually helpful--doing the math library in, say, awk or SQL might not show me anything those languages are good at. Doing Web content scraping in C would get me distracted with implementation details of the language instead of what it's good at.

Ask HN: Does anybody actually use MongoDB anymore?

Here's my theory on MongoDB, having spent a lot of time thinking about it:

There is going to be some huge number of new developers every year for the foreseeable future, and Mongo is the lowest barrier to entry database available. These people don't know SQL and don't care that "Postgres is better". Mongo does a few useful things really well, and everything else (like sharding) is a moat around that core value proposition, which is why Mongo gets away with being bad at a lot of stuff.

Mongo is good at:

* Starting up (when you download it, you literally just get a mongod binary).

* Inserting JSON documents.

* Indexing those JSON documents.

* Composing queries programmatically (because they're JSON documents).

* Replication (oddly).

Mongo is bad at:

* Analytical queries. I've literally written a book about Mongo and still can't remember most query syntax.

* Efficient data storage - documents take a huge amount of space.

* Scaling.

* Sharding - this feature has always been half-baked.

* A lot of other stuff.

Your immediate inclination is probably to say something like "but look at (Couchbase|MySQL|Cassandra|Rethink|Postgres), its so much better written and it does (document storage|relational querying|scaling|sharding|json documents now in version 9.4!!!!!) so much better". Again, thats not the point, the lesson here is that MongoDB is a thing because barrier to entry is a better feature for many users.

gooseus 11 hours ago 0 replies      
Can I ask why it would have stopped being considered a viable data storage option for new projects? Are you asking about document storage as a whole, or MongoDB specifically?

I've been using MongoDB for many years on most new projects. The advantages I find are that it is easy to setup and use and lends itself nicely to adapting product requirements that typically accompany a new project.

It's also nice that there is a large community and talent pool that supports and is familiar with MongoDB, so if you bring someone on to your project, you don't have to worry about someone getting up to speed on a less well-known document store.

In any case, I would consider it a viable option for any generic "new project" though the devil is in the details and there are certainly project requirements which could make it less viable.

I almost got burned in a bad way by Mongo's aggressive defaults back in the good old days. The only reason I still use it on some projects is convenience. Compose.io made Mongo hosting and scaling way too easy.

But really, RethinkDB and Postgres are better in pretty much every way. If I was running my own stack, I wouldn't ever touch Mongo again.

Has anyone gotten triggers to work with MongoDB? I know they are not officially supported, but you can "roll your own" via parsing of the oplog. If anyone has a good resource for this, I would love to see it.

My dream architecture is MongoDB+REST backend, pushing data changes as events over RabbitMQ, consumed by business logic C++Qt. Mongo would make this way easier if I could get triggers working.

MongoDB is a pretty big part of most of my client JS stacks (including MEAN), and most of my colleges have clients that rely on it as well. It's a reasonable balance of performance and complexity, though it's not a replacement for SQL and key/value stores in all cases.
edavis 9 hours ago 0 replies      
This past weekend I was looking to add a document database to a side project and I never considered using MongoDB. Maybe it has improved over the past few years, but when I last played with it I found it flaky and unreliable. I eventually found RethinkDB and think I'm going to go with that.

That said, MongoDB is still plenty popular [1]. It's just no longer the "hot new thing" that gets 510 posts a day on HN.

I recently started a business that uses it. It was a good fit for the data I needed to store, and the nature of the product is such that even if I'm wildly successful I probably won't ever need more than one database server.

Many of our customers do (I work in HIPAA-compliant hosting), so I can tell you it's an alive and well thing. Many forms of patient data don't really fit well into relational data structures, so it's not surprising that Mongo (as the most "popular" non-relational db) is common in healthcare apps now.

Most healthcare apps are not "large" in nature and often have way more writes than reads, so many of Mongo's weaknesses don't show themselves in those applications.

Just started my first project using MongoDB a week or so ago. It seemed the best fit. Just a personal project providing a bit of a metadata layer over a filesystem. I suppose I'll see whether this was a good choice or not after I import a few million file records and start creating clients that manipulate the tags/properties associated with the files.
yoctonaut 11 hours ago 0 replies      
It depends on the nature of your project(s) and the data you want to store, as well as what you want to do with it. If you're storing and retrieving things that make sense as persistent documents with JSON-like structures, sure. If you're going to be editing those documents frequently (and changing their attributes or--most importantly--their size), then you might want to look at some other database structure, or some blended solution.

I use it in my ruby app with mongoid gem. My data is not huge, and I only expose it to my users through a read-only API. I absolutely love the flexibility that mongodb/mongoid offers. It almost feels like not worrying about the DB, states, schema, etc. anymore. Please note that mine is an experimental project, and not a commercial one that I run for business.

For hobby projects and MVPs, it's certainly fast to get running.

Managing replication and scaling can be time-consuming and expensive compared to other NoSQL stores like Redis and Couch.

So for production on serious projects, I would choose another DB before migration becomes expensive.

zeeshanm 10 hours ago 0 replies      
I use it for ad hoc data analysis. When I just want to put data in, get it out without thinking about the ultimate picture of schema. Probably not a solution for all needs. For example, I wouldn't use mongodb in apps where atomicity is critical.

We use it with writeConcern 0 and journaling off. Basically for a best effort document store. The type of data stored is such that if a few records get lost every now and then it's not the end of the world, as long as inserts are generally very fast.
angersock 11 hours ago 1 reply      
I do, though I don't use it for certain types of things for which it's ill-suited--it's a document store, it's non-relational, it's not really as fault-tolerant as I'd like for certain types of applications.

That said, it's got a really nice query API and is quite simple to get up and running for hackathons or simple home projects. It's got a decent map/reduce story for simple tasks, and overall I don't really see anything wrong with it.

There's just a lot of backlash because some earlier versions did dumb things by default (which were fixable if you consulted the docs), because Postgres can do almost all of the storage things Mongo does and faster (once finally setup and tuned, and if you don't mind losing that nice API [unless you want to set things up with Mongres or similar hacks]), and lastly that all of the cool kids on HN were congratulating each other on how awesome Mongo was and just in general being annoying.

That's it, really.


To misquote Tyler Durden: "You're not your fucking tech stack." Especially when you are working on something that is more of a business problem than anything else.

I don't agree.

I think it's typical for a middle-button click and/or control-left-click to open a link in a new tab. That's easy to do, and so we get to choose new tab or same tab ourselves, rather than having the website make the decision for us.

My habit with HN is to open a link by middle-clicking both the post link and the comments link. So I get both the post and its comments in side-by-side tabs. It's convenient for me, but people who just want to use a single tab can still do so.

Chicago. New York City. San Francisco. Mountain View.

Matasano Security / iSEC Partners

Job Title: Senior "three year endless winter whose storms rattle branches off world-tree, hearkening the end of this world, the rebirth of the next" Engineer.

Startup devs work to build things people want. Matasano team members work to break things people want.

This is, I expect, my last HN hiring post for Matasano. My last day is next Friday. Yggdrasil's branch has struck the world-serpent Jormungand, Heimdall strides towards the Gjallarhorn, the garbage around my desk is being picked up, the yeti pictures torn down.

I confidently recommend Matasano. The team is amazing. There are too many great people here to list, but let me talk about a couple. Do these sound like roles you'd like to play?

* The German PhD who hit the ground running as one of our best C/C++ vulnerability researchers, wrote the "idb" iOS analyzer, and schooled the rest of the team on timing attacks.

* The person we moved from DC to Chicago, along with their... notable... Windows driver security and exploit development skills.

* The Mountain View line-of-business web software dev we found who picked up a Rails CVE within an hour of looking at Rails for the first time.

* The Santa Cruz shorts-and-flip-flops-wearing RTOS spelunker and Microcorruption coauthor; that guy has seen some shit.

* The devops from STL who'd never so much as poked at a web app who implemented an impossibly tricky lattice-reduction+FFT cryptanalytic attack that Nate Lawson showed me as a joke, inside of a week.

* The Chicago .NET dev who found us on HN and wound up writing half the crypto challenges

I give up. This post would be 5000 words long if I tried to capture just one awesome thing about everyone I work with here. I will miss working with all of them terribly. You could be working with them now. I think you should!

As Patrick McKenzie once put it: "If I were looking for a day job, I wouldn't be looking for a day job any more: they're friendly, happy people who get social license to join the Dark Side, do smart stuff all day, and then go home while it is still light out.".

Matasano tries very, very hard to be cool about hiring. You can't waste their time, and they'll respect yours.

Khan Academy Mountain View, CA (we also love interns, and remote is a possibility)

We're a small, non-profit tech startup bringing a free, world-class education to anyone, anywhere.

Here's a testimonial we received last week:


I am 52. I returned to school almost twenty years ago and did quite well--but I had taken care of all my math requirements 15 years before that and my degree is about as far from math as one can get. So I had not seen the inside of a math classroom for more than thirty years when I decided not long ago that I wanted to review high school math. Listening to Sal's explanations have made this so easy it is as though I had remembered all of it this whole time!

I am disabled now, and have no means to continue formal studies in much of anything, but I am now learning the calculus and linear algebra I was planning on studying when I was much younger--before my college career ran off the rails for an extended time. Thank you Sal (and the internets) for letting me remain a student! Keep this place running; I want to be able to hang around here until I am no longer able to hang around anywhere anymore.


Every month we get hundreds of letters like this from people in all walks of life who are thankful for our free, high-quality educational content. Most of you reading this are familiar with Sal's videos, but we also have hundreds of videos by other teachers, partnerships with organizations like MoMA and the California Academy of Sciences, and a huge library of interactive exercises. Over 20 million math problems are done every week on our site.

A few things we're currently working on building right now:

The next version of our personalized learning dashboard [1] to make the UI more consistent across subjects and to help people learn better

Improved knowledge models so we can better know what you know and don't know [2]

Infrastructure improvements to make the site more reliable and faster for our millions of visitors every month [3]

Better tools for our content creators to allow them to make thousands of engaging, interactive exercise problems without knowing how to code [4]

A major revision to our iOS app to let students practice skills on the go (or in a classroom with iPads!)

You'll be part of a small team working alongside both "celebrity" devs (like jQuery creator John Resig and Google's first employee Craig Silverstein) and many more who you haven't heard of but who are also really awesome.


We're especially looking for new product designers and mobile devs but we have a handful of other positions open -- take a look and see if anything suits you.

Apply at https://www.khanacademy.org/careers and mention that you're coming from HN. Feel free to ask me here if you have questions about applying or about KA in general. Unfortunately we can't sponsor visas right now unless you're from Canada, Australia, or Mexico.

Mozilla San Francisco, Mountain View, other locations, and REMOTE (American timezones preferred) OS Engineer (aka programmer)

Cloud Services For Firefox OS team is hiring for a Firefox OS Client Developer.

The Cloud Services For Firefox OS team is building end-to-end services (front and backend) for Firefox OS (Mozilla's mobile operating system) and other Firefox platforms. These are services such as backup, push services, and account services. As we build these services we're also helping expand the platforms; we're not satisfied until anyone can build the same kinds of services that we do on the web platform. You'll be working together with a small team sharing a handful of projects.

Client development happens both in Gaia (the set of HTML and JavaScript applications that make up much of Firefox OS) and in Gecko (Mozilla's core platform that underlies Firefox on desktop, Android, and OS). JavaScript will be the primary language you use, but this is not a JavaScript job. Mozilla loves JavaScript so much that it uses JavaScript in ways that you are unlikely to be familiar with. You should be open (even excited!) to work with large and complex codebases, and to work within the process that coordinates the Mozilla company and community.

Working at Mozilla is a unique opportunity:

1. Everything you do will be open source and in public repositories.2. You can be as open and public about your work as you choose: we strive to make our processes open within the company and beyond the company to the community and world.3. We love the web without reservation. It's not that we just like hanging out with the web, or that we love what the web can do for us: Mozilla and the web are married for life.4. Mozilla is a mission-led organization. That means lots of things, but part of what it means is that when you interact with people, or even disagree with them, you also know that we're here for the same reason and that we share a motivational foundation.5. Mozilla is super friendly to remote work. And even if you don't want to start remote, this gives you options in the future.6. Mozilla is focused on its impact on the world, and we'll support you in your own ambitions to have impact.


1. BS in Computer Science or equivalent experience; being able to show examples of your work is the best evidence.2. Experience with web technologies: HTML, CSS, JavaScript.3. Experience with methods common in open source world: version control, integration testing, etc.4. Mobile experience is a plus.5. Experience or readiness to interact with large codebases and distributed teams.6. Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

We are open to both junior and senior candidates for this position.

You can work remotely or in one of our regional offices (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/contact/spaces/). North American timezones are preferred so you can be more compatible with the rest of the team. If remote, experience with remote work is strongly desired.

To apply: https://hire.jobvite.com/j/?aj=ojPBZfws&s=Hacker_News if you have any questions you can contact me (ibicking@mozilla.com) or even better ask here (I've answered a few questions in http://bit.ly/1ueasn6 as well).

Desmos - San Francisco, CA

-- About us --

Desmos builds great math software. If you love math, write great code, and care about education, then we want to meet you.

Check out a sample graph at https://www.desmos.com/calculator/bbhzdbudoy if you haven't seen our calculator before.

-- Software Developer (calculator) --

The Desmos calculator lives entirely in the browser. It incorporates a realtime LaTeX WYSIWIG editor, includes a full compiler pipeline to interpret unstructured user math input and transform it into meaningful and efficiently-evaluable code, and makes extensive use of modern web technologies such as web workers and canvas rendering. The calculator core is modular and well-tested code which powers our free-to-use desktop, tablet, and mobile versions, used by millions of students, as well as driving our API, which many of the world's largest education companies use to power their graphing and math input. There's a lot to do to make the calculator faster, more powerful, more featureful and more beautiful, build out mobile apps, and continue to grow the calculator API.

We're not big into hard requirements, but a love of and interest in math is non-negotiable.

If this is the right job for you, you're probably also interested in numerical and geometric computation, compilers, code generation, performance optimization, API design, CAS implementation and graphics.

-- Software Developer (lessons) --

Desmos is redefining what online math content can look like by treating the creation of each lesson as software development. Each lesson we build has unique interactions, streams realtime data to other students and to the teacher dashboard, and has to work effectively across a wide range of devices. Basically, we're building a new app every few weeks, each one designed by our team of world-class educators and designers. If you're not excited by a never-ending stream of ready-to-build projects that will each make a significant impact on a specific area of math education, this is not the position for you.

We need to see a demonstrated ability to create high-quality interactive experiences rapidly, and a love of math and teaching.

Bonus points if you've produced and maintained code in a high-throughput / multi-product environment, developed complex single-page web apps, built complex touch interactions, or spent time as an educator.

Companies are building their core businesses around our API right now, and that means we have to be reliable, up all the time, and fast. We have more data for a single user than in most startups' entire database. That means big technical challenges to solve as we scale out our fledgling distributed backend.

== We're particularly looking for folks who ==

* Take personal pride in their work and value autonomy and ownership.

* Have a experience with automated deployments, debugging running systems, release engineering, and on-call schedules, but are still comfortable writing code.

* Want the chance to step up and lead a team.

* Put the work before ego. We've got each others' backs, and we want you to be with us on that.

== A bit more about us ==

* We're built on tools like Python, Flask, gevent, nginx, MySQL, AWS, and Debian. Go and Docker are likely to join this list soon. We've been careful to keep our architecture componentized.

* Tons of our code is open source. Check it out: https://github.com/inboxapp

* We're 40% women on our team of 10 (9 engineers), including 1 of 2 cofounders. We want to make that number 50%.

* Our sunny Mission office is more cozy than tidy. Think art studio, not corporate.

* We're more likely to end up at the climbing gym or on a bike ride together than out drinking at the latest startup event.

* We have an open vacation policy and value personal responsibility and ownership.

To apply, email your resum (+ GitHub/code links if you have) to spang@inboxapp.com. We welcome and encourage applications from women and people of colour.

Harvard Center for International Development - Cambridge, MAFront end developer, onsite


* What we do:

We take real world government data and research, and turn them into interactive data viz tools. The Atlas of Economic Complexity is our current online tool that lets you interactively visualize a countrys trade and explore growth opportunities for more than a hundred countries worldwide. There are also other National Atlas projects in the pipeline, one for Colombia and one for Mexico.

The idea is that countries provide us with their data and the Center provides them with economic policy advice based on our economic theories, and an interactive tool to explore their situation and make sound policy decisions at the regional level. If you're looking for a high-impact job, this is it!


* What we want to do:

We want to focus on building features around this idea of storytelling with data (see example at the end), as well as re-do our UI and design to be cleaner and up to modern standards, and to add better visualization capabilities. We look at NYtimes / WaPo data driven articles with envy. We salivate when we see Tufte's work.

We need you, dear frontend engineer, to make all that a reality!

We use d3.js for the visualizations. We know that at least the visualization part would be ideally suited for a single page app, and we'd love to implement something along those lines with Angular / Backbone / etc. We want to rethink our designs and how the frontend works in general.

Especially with the new national projects with Colombia and Mexico, you'll have free rein over the creative process and the technological aspects of your work.


* Our stack:

We use python, django, mysql (hopefully postgres soon), elasticsearch, ansible for the back end. For the frontend, it's jquery / d3 for now.Everything we do is open source: https://github.com/cid-harvard and we use Github for bug/feature tracking.


* Work environment / goals:

Coming from the startup world, the work environment is pretty laid back, but everyone is expected to hold their own and get their work done without being micromanaged. No late nights and weekends, although I've been known to do that once in a blue moon because I felt like it.

We're a small engineering team (me and a data viz researcher, plus a new super talented designer), but we work with a large group of brilliant doctoral / postdoctoral researchers from diverse backgrounds like econ, public policy, physics, international development. I've been here only for a few months, but I've been given responsibility to fully overhaul and clean up the backend, which speaks towards the kind of autonomy you'll have.

I'm looking to build out our burgeoning team into a small but strong group that specializes in turning ideas into reality. We have great plans and dreams for the future of this site, and we need people to help. We'd love to hear more about you and see work samples if possible! To get in touch: mali underscore akmanalp at hks dot harvard dot edu.


* Demo of the current atlas:

An example of how the atlas is useful take this story here:http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/03/21/world/europe/h...

The EU recently placed sanctions sales of oil equipment, but not on oil imports. Why could this be? Almost 70% of russia's exports are petrol products:


And Russia exports the overwhelming majority of its petroleum products to Europe:

http://atlas.cid.harvard.edu/explore/tree_map/export/rus/sho... and http://atlas.cid.harvard.edu/explore/tree_map/export/rus/sho...

The big blue chunk is europe, meaning a sanction would really hurt Russia. However, when you look at who else the EU could buy from, the situation is grim:


Theres practically no one whos a real political ally that Europe could depend on, save for Norway. Its interesting how its practically impossible to buy oil from a country thats relatively stable and doing well on the HDI front. Its worse if you consider the cost of transporting it, and how close Russia is:


Which probably explains why EU hasn't placed sanctions on oil imports from Russia.

RealCrowd (YC S13) - Palo Alto, CA - Full Time

RealCrowd is a seed funded, profitable, commercial real estate investment marketplace. Investors purchase shares of commercial real estate properties, funds and debt, and participate in their share of the returns on those investments. What were once investments reserved for large funds and country club networks are being opened up to the individual investor.

We are taking a fundamentally different approach than others in the "Real Estate Crowdfunding" market and it is working. Investments are growing at a rate of 25% per month and our investors make on average three investments per year at over $50,000 average investment size. We've participated in over $500 Million of real estate transactions with top real estate firms, investors using our site having contributed nearly $17 Million of capital. We listed the first investment about one year ago just before demo day on August 20.

We're looking for junior engineers that have a passion for the responsive web, an unusual ability to ship code quickly, and a desire to learn from industry veterans.

The RealCrowd site is 100% responsive with about 20% of our sessions originating from mobile and tablet devices.

Our front end is developed primarily with a custom Bootstrap theme, AngularJS and CoffeeScript.

We are an API-first development organization, so there are a myriad of APIs available to the front end.

We have designers on staff to help ship best in class UX and visual design.

We're looking for junior engineers for entry level positions to work on a team with 5 senior engineers with an average of over 10 years of software development experience. We are growing and there should be much room for internal advancement in the future for motivated employees.

You should be able to: - Build web sites using html, css, and javascript - Learn new concepts quickly - Try, fail, and try again - Be familiar with server side development in a fairly modern environment such as MEAN, RoR, ASP.Net MVC, etc - Have a passion for building great user experiences - Accept critical feedback and improve your craft - Be passionate about being the best software developer you can be - Get shit done

You will do a small project (where you will maintain copyright) and take a little test rather than have any BS technical puzzle interviews or whiteboard coding.

We have 100% paid health insurance, great food, a relaxed yet high output work environment, and commuter benefits available. This role is on-site in Palo Alto.

Company:Airphrame, a well funded venture-backed startup based in San Francisco, is building the technology to control fleets of autonomous devices in a scalable and centralized manner. That's right, tens of thousands of robots under our control... do I have your attention?

Our product focus is the development of a UAV-based on-demand imaging platform, primarily for data collection, to assist civil engineers, land surveyors, environmental engineers, and other professionals. Our technology has already demonstrated a tenfold cost reduction compared to traditional survey operations. Our goal is to use that advantage to open up a new realm of data acquisition strategies.

Airphrame has been developing drone technology since 2012. We were the first to demonstrate Internet-only based control and the first to utilize fleets commercially (completely without pilots). We've done more with less and plan to keep it that way. We prefer to work with small teams of talented people rather than large teams of pretty good engineers. We're a tight knit group, with immense respect for each other's complementary skill sets. We thrive on pushing the boundaries and our company mascot is a bourbon Manhattan.

Were looking for self-directed, versatile individuals who work well in teams. You should be able to say you are the absolute best at what you do.

Full Stack:- Scala and/or Java, JavaScript, HTML, CSS- Scalable API design and implementation- Relational and NoSQL databases- Knowledge of modern frontend frameworks- Linux system administration- Amazon Web Services (AWS)- 4+ years industry experience, coding entire life- Passion for robotics, maps, and startup experience are all big plussesEXAMPLE TASK FOCUSCreate a web interface for an analyst to label objects shown in images that are a part of a large geospatial dataset.

Mechatronics: - Knowledge of sensor selection, design, and usage (e.g. sensor fusion) - Familiar with system integration, microprocessor, signal processing and various communication peripherals (e.g. SPI, I2C, UART) - Hands-on prototyping and hardware debugging, including fine-pitch soldering and rework, use of oscilloscopes and logic analyzers - Robust knowledge in embedded software developement (C, C++) - Bonus: Experience integrating sensors directly with autopilotsEXAMPLE TASK FOCUSSource and integrate a small parachute deployment based on sensor feedback through the Pixhawk flight controller.

Remote - Rails Machine - Senior/Mid-Level Site Reliability Engineers

==Email matt at railsmachine dot com and please put "SRE Job Application" in the subject. Thanks!==

At Rails Machine, we all work from home - we have a Remote First culture. We are a Results-Only Work Environment, have a transparent and public technical ladder, unlimited time off, and require healthy work-life balance. Rails Machine pays 100% of health insurance premiums, participates in 401k match and has been bootstrapped and profitable since our founding in 2006. All employees participate in quarterly profit sharing.

As a Site Reliability Engineer at Rails Machine, your goals will be to ensure our customers applications are available, fast, and secure. Our customers need the best service, support, and products, and we need you to help us deliver.

At Rails Machine, we offer two main products: managed infrastructure and managed operations. Through managed infrastructure, we provide automation, infrastructure, and scalability in our own data center on our own hardware. We provide both bare-metal and virtualized hosting options for our customers, and youll work directly with them to ensure their goals are met through automation, analysis, and hardware.

Via managed operations, we provide custom, consulting-based solutions on top of AWS and other cloud vendors, as best meets our customers needs. Youll manage globally load balanced AWS installations, cross-datacenter replication on different vendors, or within customers data-centers.

No matter the product, we take a DevOps-centric approach with our customers - we believe that we provide the best service and our customers get the best value when we work closely together. We integrate task trackers (Pivotal, Trello, Asana), chat (Slack, Hipchat), and source control (github) into our own workflow through careful and clever use of automation, giving our customers the ability to reach out to us like they would with an internal DevOps team but without an operational burden on us.

Youll work with virtualization and container technologies like Xen, OpenStack, Vagrant, Ansible, and Docker. You will setup and automate high availability data clusters (MySQL Galera, PostgreSQL replication, Redis failover, ElasticSearch clustering, Memcached, MongoDB etc.), application instances for technologies like Ruby-on-Rails, Django, Node, and Scala (to name a few), and layer on top of those management, orchestration, monitoring, and alerting for fleets of instances. If youve ever wanted to work at a scale that few companies do, youll find the right challenge here at Rails Machine!

OpenSignal - London, UK (Full time, permanent)

At OpenSignal we're using mobile apps to tap into the smart phones we're all carrying around with us to build up global crowdsourced sensor networks. Our first sensor network is for wireless signal [1] where we are building a global database on the coverage and performance of wireless networks (both mobile + WiFi) on a scale that has never before been possible. Our second sensor network is WeatherSignal [2], which uses the barometers, thermometers and hygrometers on smart phones to crowdsource weather data and we have already published a scientific paper [3] showing the potential of this approach. If the concept of crowdsourced sensor networks appeals to you too then please get in touch. We are hiring for all manner of different roles right not (backend, frontend, UX/UI & data science) but most of all we are just looking for smart, like minded people rather than people with specific, existing skills.

iRobot (http://www.irobot.com) - Bedford, MA (just outside of Boston, MA) and Pasadena, CA

Looking for great work-life balance at a job where you can say "I can't find my keyboard under all these robots!" ? Want a place with half-day Fridays during the summer so you can get to the beach on a Friday afternoon? Then iRobot might be the place for you.

We blend cutting-edge research and practical engineering to build useful and affordable robots.

We're looking for smart engineers who are easy to work with. You should probably think robots are cool, but a robotics background is NOT required. (I had no robotics background when I started at iRobot.)

iRobot is looking for software engineers and mechanical engineers.

Here are a few of our 20+ job openings:

* Embedded software engineers: We're hiring for "big embedded" (C++, Linux, and big cpus) and "small embedded" (C, bare-metal, small cpus). If you have good OO skills (C++, Java, etc.) but no "embedded" background that's okay too - shoot me an email and we'll chat.

* Software engineers for vision, navigation, and mapping

* Test engineers

* Mechanical engineers

* IT engineers

* UX/UI engineers

Check our jobs site for all positions: http://www.irobot.com/us/Company/Careers.aspx

The Pasadena, CA jobs show up on our jobs site with "Job Location: US" (as opposed to our Bedford, MA locations that say "Job Location: US-MA"). Sorry for the confusion; the web folks are aware of it and hopefully future listings will be fixed.

Email me directly if you'd like to know more: csvec@irobot.com

Please email even if you're not sure if you're a match; I'm always happy to talk to other HN'ers!

Hiring a Lead Data Scientist and Python Software Engineers - Recursion Pharmaceuticals - Salt Lake City, Utah(Also hiring biologists with mammalian cell culture experience!)

Were a fast-growing 7-person biotech startup with an amazing set of advisors including the Broads Anne Carpenter, and we're using high throughput experiments, automated image segmentation and analysis of human cells, and data analysis to find new treatments for rare genetic diseases faster than anyone has previously thought possible. There are more than 5,000 rare genetic diseases, in total affecting millions of Americans, and our serious goal is to find treatments for 100 rare diseases in the next 10 years.

Our approach is to model rare genetic diseases in human cells, then use these disease models to find drugs that revert the cells to a healthy state, and thus are strong candidates for impacting the disease in patients. In a pretty quick experiment, we image millions of human cells. Image segmentation and analysis quickly makes thousands of measurements, resulting in a very deep quantitation of the state of every single cell. The challenge at hand is running the right experiments in the right way and analyzing results to make the discoveries we seek.

I previously co-founded BuildASign.com, a bootstrapped custom printing ecommerce business set to do over $70M in 2014 revenues, and I left daily operations several years back to study biology, bioinformatics, machine learning and drug discovery. My co-founder, Chris, and I started Recursion to turn drug discovery into a computational problem. Our vision is ambitious (zero-to-one scale), and early results are compelling.

>> Lead Data Scientist (Python):

- You have several years of experience in statistics, machine learning, and software development solving problems using lots of data, preferably using pythons scientific stack. You see the world through the lens of statistics and modeling, you thoroughly understand cross-validation and learning curves, and you can explore data on your own and get an effective guess as to what sort of model and assumptions make sense as a starting point.

- Youre motivated both by tackling the most challenging data problems around, and by making lots of patients lives dramatically better.

- Maybe you already know some biology, but if you dont, youre excited to learn what you need to (well help, of course!) in order to really understand our data and approach.

- Youll come to understand our experiments and data at a visceral level and help us guide the direction of our experiments and our company towards our goals.

- Youll work with our biologists to guide our design/experiment/analyze cycle towards getting the most impactful biological information from the most rapid and cost-effective experimental approaches. This includes researching, suggesting and testing different statistical and machine learning approaches, along with changing our experimental setup to provide more useful information with every round of experiments. Youll set the groundwork for how well design and analyze thousands of experiments in the coming years.

>> Software Engineer (Python):

- You have several years of experience in python software development, preferably using ipython and other scientific python tools. Youre also super-comfortable at the command line and handling the standard a linux server, and great at solving any kind of computational issue via stackoverflow. No sysadmins, DBAs or the like will be around to help for a while.

- Youre motivated by challenging problems, and by the idea of making millions of patients lives dramatically better, as fast as we can.

- Youll work with biologists and data scientists to develop tools to manage and automate our experiments and analyses. To manage the experiments and analyses it will take to treat 100 diseases in 10 years, well need a pretty amazing set of systems in place eventually, but need to get there incrementally so that we can make rapid progress immediately using the resources we have.

>> About Recursion:

We work in a beautiful office and lab space set directly at the base of the mountains, overlooking Salt Lake City, situated directly one floor above the drug discovery core at the University of Utah, giving us direct access to millions of dollars of cutting edge lab automation and imaging equipment. We offer competitive pay, health insurance, relocation assistance (working at the office is part of the deal), equity, a location 30 minutes from amazing mountains and 5 world-class ski resorts, and a group of ambitious, talented, happy, awesome people to work with.

We deliver consultancy around strategy, architecture, and execution of all aspects of Application Lifecycle Management. We work with clients to develop a vision, to plan and then execute on a clients behalf. We then go on to manage and operate services on for them over the longer term. All this wrapped with our library of plugins, thought leadership and other IP in this space.

With its global headquarters in the technology hub of London, England, but with a truly global delivery footprint, Adaptavist is recruiting to build out its physical presence in the UK as well as both Germany and the USA in support of its rapid commercial growth.

Adaptavists approach to hiring in these new territories is to seek out talent, and craft a role around that talent supported by training as required in pursuit of the simple goal of excellence. Each country operates as part of the whole, with local team members, being part of a larger global team.

Far from being just another Atlassian partner, we consider ourselves to be a boutique consultancy helping organisations improve or re-engineer all aspects of their software delivery supported by the Atlassian tools.

We typically find that the sort of person we are looking for has hobby projects (in a range of completion states) and participates in the open source community through things like: * Google Code * GitHub * Bitbucket

Future career growth might be into areas of consultancy, software architecture or management. Let us know what you'd like to do.

So far, our successful hires in this area have found Adaptavists challenges & clients, as well as our fun & flexibility to be key attracting factors. The variation between small tactical and larger strategic projects is a bonus, as we dont find our employees bored or feeling like they arent challenged on a weekly, or even daily, basis.

REMOTE - Global DevOps - Haskell and Nix

We're looking for 1 more developer with systems/operations experience to join us. We are a team of 5 working to simplify and automate operations of our 7+ networks of websites and internal services across Southeast Asia. The entire team is remote.

We've built and tested a Nix(OS)-based network powering a traditional LAMP stack, running on AWS. Initially deployed with NixOps, we've since started deploying it with our in-house tool written in Haskell (https://github.com/zalora/upcast). Currently in testing, it will soon be in production serving 7+ countries and 1 million+ customers.

We release as much as we can under Free Software licenses and contribute upstream to open source projects when possible. We have no fixed schedules and no deadlines. Your job would be to learn your way around our infrastructure (and enhance our growing wiki in the process), take pager duty 1 out of every 6 weeks, and find yourself projects that will challenge and motivate you to create value for the company.

FutureAdvisor - San Francisco, CA

FutureAdvisor is an online investment manager that graduated from YCombinator in 2010. We're backed by Sequoia and Canvas Venture, and we're tackling an important problem: helping people save enough to actually retire. We've grown our revenue by 18x in the last year, and raised our $15.5 million Series B in May.

We have more than 150,000 users depending on us for advice and investment management to preserve and grow their life savings, and we've made a crucial service available to the middle and working class for the first time. FutureAdvisor is at that sweet spot where most of the risk is behind us, and most of the upside is ahead.

We have about 40 employees and we're based in the Financial District. We're looking for an infrastructure engineer (DevOps/PostOps), a senior engineer with lead potential, and an engineering intern. Our Web app is based on a Rails stack, using Coffeescript to transpile to Javascript on the frontend, where we use an EmberJS framework.


We're also looking for two product managers. We need people with experience launching and improving a web/mobile-based consumer software product. They should be metrics driven and very thoughtful about how features affect users, and how they can be tested.

Finally, we need an interactive designer who can show us their UI/UX work. Someone both practical and empathetic who cares about solving a real, high-stakes problem.


In our experience, four things make team members want to stay with a company: sane, caring management; a product with a mission; work-life balance; and competitive compensation. We offer all those, and we're a nice place to work. :)

Baltimore, MD; Reston, VA; 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. Our stack is Java on Spring on *nix (Mac for dev, Linux on the servers) with MySQL and some NoSQL stores on AWS. The Baltimore office also has a team on a large .NET stack as well, but Java teams are spread across both offices. 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 2 people through these threads. These things do work!

Expensify-San Francisco, CA-Fulltime, Programmer Extraordinaire

Hey there! Allow us to introduce ourselves. We are Expensify and we do "expense reports that don't suck!" (Google "expensify" to read more.) We're getting crushed under an ever-growing pile of super awesome work, and I need one bright soul to help us dig our way out. I can guarantee you fun, an amazing opportunity to learn, and the siren's call of distant riches. But only if you are all of the following:

- An incredibly hard worker, even when it's not so fun. There is a ton of work to do, and a lot of it downright sucks. After all we do the sucky work so our customers won't need to. I need you to buck up and grind through server logs, user emails, source code, and bug reports, without complaint or supervision, and come back asking for more.

- A cool person to be with. Not a crazy party animal, just someone we can trust, rely upon, hang out with, bounce ideas off of, and generally interact with in a positive way, both personally and professionally. In fact, this is one of the most stringent requirements we have: would you be fun to hang out with day and night on some remote, exotic beach? This isn't a rhetorical question, either: every year we take the company overseas for a month (on your own dime, sorry) and work incredibly hard while having a ton of fun. We've done Thailand, Mexico, India, Turkey, Croatia and the Philippines. We are in Portugal right now! Want to come?

- Super talented, in a general way. We're going to throw a ton of work at you of every possible sort, and you need that magic skill of being able to figure it out even if you have no idea where to start. On any given day you might bounce between super low-level coding, super high-level technical support, marketing-driven data-mining, updating our user documentation, inventing/designing/building some new feature, etc. This is not a code monkey job you're going to be a full participant in the process, and you need to bring your own unique blend of skills to the table.

- Specifically talented in a programming way. You can instantly visualize solutions to problems big and small. Your code is always clean, well commented, has good nomenclature and indentation. You can switch on a dime between C++, PHP, Bash, Cron, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Dwoo, SQL not because you know them all, but because you're the sort of person who can just pick it up and figure it out. If you're this sort of person, you'll know what I mean. If not, then this position isn't for you.

And there are a bunch more, but odds are if you got this far, nothing I can do would stop you from applying. That's a problem because while I know you are awesome, it's actually really hard and time consuming to find you in the midst of the literally hundreds of other applications I get from everyone else. So this is where I'm going to ask my first favor: can you make it really easy and obvious how great you are, so I don't accidentally overlook you?

There are probably many ways to do that. But the easiest way to do that is to check out we.are.expensify.com and send in an application(which you can find at http://we.are.expensify.com/apply). We are excited to hear from you! -----

TechEmpower - Los Angeles area, California (El Segundo, near LAX)

You may recognize us from the Web Framework Benchmarks that have been discussed on HN periodically: http://www.techempower.com/benchmarks/

Work Hard, Have Fun, Be Nice

Let's be honest: you became a developer because you like to build things. Interesting things, useful things, cool things. It's like building with Legos, only you get paid, and there are always plenty of the right color pieces.

At TechEmpower, we build things. Interesting things. Cool things, mostly in webapp form. We build them as individuals, because we're creative people. We build them as teams, because we like to help each other grow, and because we know that collaboration improves even the best code.

Having the best people doesn't hurt, either. We've got most of them already, and we're looking to find the rest. You can build things with us. What's the catch? We're pretty darn selective.

To work as an individual, you have to be motivated and creative and thoughtful and serious. To work on a team, you have to be respectful and energetic and open and absolutely not a jerk. We need developers who can work on every part of an application, from the data store to the pagesometimes known as full stack developers. And to be a full stack developer, you have to know technology and want to learn more technology, because those acronyms just keep coming.

Our clients expect us to work with them, not for them. We help them define their problems, and we provide solutions, on time and on target. We're service-oriented, and you should be too.

Still reading? Please apply! And check out our Web Framework Benchmarks while you're at it. We pretty much wrote the book on that one.

Just so you know:

   Teams range between 2-6 people   Developers are exposed to 3-4 projects per year   All development is done on high-performance workstations with 4K displays. A lot of code fits in 3840x2160 pixels!   We maintain an informal, comfortable environment, just like the old college computer science lab, but with grown-up hours   Everybody's nice
The technologies we use vary over time with our mix of projects. Here is a snapshot of what we're using now:

   Languages: Java, JavaScript, Python, C#, Ruby, PHP   Tools: Git, Jenkins (Continuous Integration), Sonar (static code analysis), Eclipse, IntelliJ, Ant, Maven   Web: Dropwizard, .NET MVC 5, Play, Django, Rails, Mustache, Handlebars, Backbone, Angular, Knockout, JSP, Servlets, jQuery, etc.   Mobile: iOS, Android, PhoneGap   Hosting: AWS (EC2, RDS, etc.), Rackspace Cloud, Linux deployments   Data Persistence: ORM (Hibernate, etc.), MySQL, Postgres, MS SQL Server, NoSQL (Redis, MongoDB)
We don't expect new hires to have experience with all of these, but we do expect you'll learn more about them every day.

If this sounds like the kind of place you'd like to work, please apply here: http://jobs.techempower.com/hn2

Joyable | joyable.com | San Francisco (local, relocate)

Hiring Rails, fullstack, and frontend engineers

At Joyable, we aspire to cure the world's anxiety and depression. We've raised $2 million in venture funding and are looking for a second engineer to join our awesome team.

As our second engineer, you'd have a substantial opportunity to change lives by transforming mental health, and, equally importantly, you'd play a key role in shaping our technical architecture. You'd be the fifth member of the team, so you would also get to help build the company and our culture.

Culturally, we're an extremely team-oriented environment. We believe you should take your work seriously, but not yourself seriously. We're very mission-driven but we want to have a good time along the way.

If you're interested in helping change the world by reinventing mental health, we should chat (steve@bejoyable.com).


Today, tens of millions of Americans don't get minimally adequate treatment for mental health issues that we know how to treat. At Joyable, we think that's crazy. Our mission is to make evidence-based mental health care available to everyone. We're starting by delivering cognitive behavioral therapy for people with clinical social anxiety. The clinical content is delivered via a webapp, but we pair the app with a layperson coach who keeps our clients engaged andmotivated.

We just finished a very successful beta with outcomes equal to best-in-class in-person therapy. Sample customer quotes from our beta include:

- "This is a godsend"

- "I never thought my results would be that different, so soon. Thank you so much"

- "I feel like I was in prison, and you gave me the key"

We raised $2 million of venture funding led by Thrive Capital (Instagram, Warby Parker, Oscar Health) and Harrison Metal (AdMob, Heroku, Grand Rounds). Our team is 4 today and based in downtown SF on top of the Powell BART Station.

We are a venture-backed startup in Chicago, and we are looking for smart engineers to join our team. This is an early-stage opportunity with a healthy amount of equity and the chance to have a significant impact on technical process and company culture. Were looking for well-rounded engineers who are comfortable working throughout our entire stack.

This could be direct project ownership at your full-time job, but it could also be something more modest, such as an open-source library you released on Github and got five other people to use, or a small web application you built in a weekend hackathon. In fact if you have any open source or web apps, show em to us, they speak louder than resumes


1. Cash compensation: Competitive with emerging technology companies2. Benefits: Competitive with emerging technology companies.$2501 spend-how-you-like budget for initial IT hardware setup3. Equity compensation: Competitive with emerging technology companies

Cambridge MA - Sysadmin in a DevOps world

Smartleaf is a small, profitable, and privately held company which helps some of the largest firms in finance manage portfolios for their clients. More details can, of course, be found in the obvious place:http://www.smartleaf.com.

We are looking for an experienced general sysadmin to join the IT/Ops team. This is a full-time, on-site position with shared on-call responsibility.

This team handles everything that could possibly fall under the IT/Operations umbrella in a small company. On the operations side, we keep the company delivering the service our customers are paying for. Linux servers (mostly Debian, a few Red Hat-ish Oracle servers) at colo data centers run our software. If it's mission critical, we manage it ourselves, from DNS through load balancing to web servers, databases and storage. We've been committed to reducing workload via automated configuration management for a long time -- so long, in fact, that we wrote our own deployment system and GPL'd it. Now we've moved systems automation over to Chef.

The system runs 24/7, but we have an available maintenance window every weekend. Every night is a fresh re-deployment. The monitoring system is in charge of waking one of us up, if need be. Long term, we need to wake up about once a month.

We make sure that everyone can telecommute; it beats going in on a snow day.

Our technology stack includes Debian Linux, Chef, Oracle, Ruby on Rails, C++, Perl, git. We use RequestTracker for ticketing. Routers and firewalls are from Juniper. Our employees mostly use Macs, with a bare handful of Windows desktops to support. There are no Microsoft serversat all. We are interested in teaching you what you need to know and learning new things from you.

You must have:

* significant Linux/UNIX systems administration experience - 6 years or longer

* preferably with Debian or Ubuntu and a Red Hat-style Linux distribution

* the ability and desire to track down problems and solve them

* solid organizational skills and time management

* a desire to learn

* and the ability to teach

* good shell scripting and one or more of Perl, Python, or Ruby

* strengths in several areas that complement our other team members

* excellent written English

* an existing legal right to work in the USA

You must be:

* clever, competent, and kind.

We offer a competitive salary, fully paid healthcare premiums and three weeks of vacation plus holidays. Office hours are flexible and partial work-from-home can be arranged. We are nice people.

Please send cover letters and resumes to future@smartleaf.com in plain text or PDF. In your cover letter, please tell us about an interesting technical problem that you have solved, in a way which makes us excited to learn more. If you ask questions, we will answer.

Transcriptic: Full-stack developer (emphasis on frontend)

Menlo Park, CA; https://www.transcriptic.com/

Transcriptic is "Amazon Web Services" for the life sciences. Rather than carry out wet-lab experiments by hand, researchers can code up (or visually configure) their experimental protocols and then run them in Transcriptic's central, highly automated 'biocenter' in an on-demand way. Customers have no upfront capital costs and pay for only what they use. Life science research today is incredibly slow, error-prone, monotonous, and expensive with researchers spending many hours a day every day just moving small volumes of liquids from one place to another. We're building a long-term company to completely change the way life science research and development is done.

We're looking for a highly talented full-stack web developer. On top of our robotic work cells is a slew of internal services as well as a Rails app that acts as our lab information management system and customer-facing UI. Challenges range from building rich, interactive interfaces for composing protocols to presenting analytical data generated by the lab back to the user. We use d3, Backbone, and some CoffeeScript today, but you'd be free to choose your own tools and libraries.

We're a rapidly growing startup (you'd be #19), but well funded ($6M) and have customers at places like Harvard, MIT, Caltech, UCSF, and Stanford. You'd be able to work on interesting science and hard technology in a small, all technical team with lots of freedom and resources.

A biology background is preferred but not strictly necessary for outstanding people.

Bay Area | Developer Evangelist | Parallel Universe (YC S12) http://paralleluniverse.co

Parallel Universe is building next generation server-side open source infrastructure software, which lets developers write simple code that is extremely performant and scalable. We believe while hardware architecture changed drastically almost a decade ago, software hasn't caught up. Current software clashes with hardware, and requires more effort to be expended on scaling rather than on business logic. The problem is most severe in server-side software that ingests real-time data, and needs to respond to a very large number of concurrent requests at low latencies. It facilitates software that is harmonious with modern hardware -- with multi-core and multi-cache, with the storage hierarchy and the IO-to-processing ratio -- rather than software that fights the hardware at every turn. The result is applications that require far less hardware, while at the same time provide much greater performance and headroom for growth.

As a developer evangelist, your job would be to help drive adoption of the Parallel Universe stack. The job is a mix of marketing, coding, sales, and geeking out. On the job you will:

* Write demos and benchmarks, and blog about them

* Write introductory blog posts and tutorials

* Speak at (and organize) developer events and hosted tech-talks

* Study the problems facing potential users, and help direct our software to best address those problems

* Provide support and guidance on technical forums and social media

* Provide on-site support and guidance for customers

* Build and cultivate relationships with US companies


* Experience writing software for the JVM, especially in Java (knowing Clojure is a plus)

* Strong familiarity with modern server-side architectures

* Participation in developer communities

* Strong technical writing skills

* Public speaking experience

* Strong social skills and an outgoing personality

* Residence in the San Francisco Bay Area

You will work from home, but travel in the Bay Area (and occasionally in the rest of the US) to visit companies and participate in events. We offer a competitive salary (with benefits) and equity.

To apply, email jobs@paralleluniverse.co

- People who like hard challenges - we have great problems across our products - huge data sets, UX, 3rd party Javascript, high volume / low latency APIs - we have no shortage of fun problems to work on.

National Climatic Data Center - http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov - Asheville, North Carolina

Scientific software developer, full-time

NCDC is the world's largest active archive of weather and climate data, and a leading source of climate research. I'm part of a new project that aims to take some of the key software here and bring it in line with modern software standards (a lot of it has grown organically over many years, and has been mostly written by scientists, not professional developers). In some cases that means rewriting it; in others it may mean surrounding it with better infrastructure: automated tests, better configuration management, better deployment practices, thorough documentation etc. It's a small team (you'd be the fourth dev), and a really strong one. We care a lot about bringing better software practices to our day to day work (for the sake of our own sanity and morale) and to NCDC as a whole (because the global climate record deserves nothing less).

We're looking for someone who's smart, passionate, and likes making important things better. You've got to be comfortable picking up new languages on the fly, and new domain knowledge as well. Good (English-language) communication skills are a must. Some background in the physical sciences or scientific software would serve you well, as would experience with large refactoring and rewriting projects. Decisions about languages and tools are being made on a project-by-project basis, and you'd be a big part of those decisions (all else being equal, we have a fondness for Python, but performance and user community buy-in have a big effect on language choice for these projects). You should be able to get behind the idea of using best-practice approaches for projects where reliability and long-term viability matter a lot.

Asheville (http://www.exploreasheville.com/) is an amazing little mountain city nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It's a fantastic place to live. You could think of it as a smaller version of Portland, OR and not get it too wrong, although it's definitely got a character all its own.

Please feel free to contact me with questions (eggdavisjs(at)novonon(dot)com), or you can apply for the position at http://gst.iapplicants.com/ViewJob-624553.html . No H1B or remote.

Scribd (YC '06), San Francisco - VISA, FULL-TIME, and INTERN are all welcome

Scribd ("Netflix for eBooks", top 100 website, 50 people) is hiring talented hackers of all kinds to help us build the library of the 21st century.

We've hired EIGHT full-time people and TONS of interns from these "Who is Hiring" threads ... it really works!

We're looking for people who want to work with:

* Ruby on Rails (we're the #2 largest rails site, after Twitter)

* Javascript (well, we use Coffeescript)

* iOS OR Android (we're a top 10 eBook app with more reviews than Wikipedia, with a small mobile team)

* Machine Learning / data mining / recommendations - think Netflix prize, but for books!

* Big data and web infrastructure - we're big users of hive, impala, and hadoop

* Product manager and design (UI or UX) roles too

* Internships: junior standing or above for all areas of engineering and product management. We hire several interns every summer and year-round.

That said, we care way more about your personality and general hacking skills then what languages you've used so far, so if you haven't used these but want to break into mobile or web development, this could be a good opportunity for you. We've hired people from these threads with everywhere from 0 to 10 years of experience.

We're profitable, very well funded and have a really fun office environment (go-karts + a rock climbing wall!). Scribd alumni have gone on to found 4 other YCombinator companies, more than from any other startup. We think this says something about the kind of people that we like to hire, and we love hiring people with entrepreneur and startup ambitions. We are also always looking for international people interested in moving to the US and can help you secure a visa.

You can read more about our "Netflix for Books" service here http://wrd.cm/1dJquzz or check out our tech blog at http://coding.scribd.com

More info is at http://www.scribd.com/jobs, but as a HN user, feel free to apply directly by emailing me at jared at scribd.com.

VERBA - San Francisco, CA



* Rails/JS Product Focus - FULL-TIME or HALF-TIME with benefits [work on your side projects!]

Verba thinks that college should be more affordable, so we help bookstores get books faster, cheaper, and sell them competitively.

We guide every stage of a used book's life. We help students save money, and bookstores become and stay relevant, competitive, and transparent.

Numbers: 450+ colleges and universities (and more beating down our door), tracking ~200k unique ISBNs, serving millions of students ("rush" season, when students are buying, means 100 requests/s), raising the "win rate" for bookstores to 80%, and dropping prices across the board. 19 employees, 3 part-time. 2 dogs. 5 cats. 3 children.

Code: Ruby, Rails, JS, Clojure and Impala for Hadoop/EMR, MySQL on AWS w/ Chef. We love experiments and go with what works! We also love making a stable, solid product which is why we have a ton of tests, metrics and a one-click build pipeline.

What's in it for you: A great team and company culture, benefits (even for part time!), laptop, books, BART pass, pool table, somewhat healthy office snacks, great conversation during our yearly company work-cations (http://verbasoftware.com/vacay), and hard, challenging, fulfilling work.

Message us if: You want to help make education better. You've got strong Rails knowledge, solid testing practices, a good head for architecture, and know enough JS to help out on front-end. We prefer slope over y-intercept.

How to get the job: Write a cover letter to jobs@verbasoftware.com that speaks to why this job might fit with you, and how you could help us out. The first step is a phone screen to solve a small programming problem. Then we'll schedule an on-site interview for a few hours, and have you walk through some of our code with us. Also we'll ask you some historical behavior questions, not logic puzzles. Then we'll make you an offer, and you'll accept and we have a new employee party!

Most of our code is written in Ruby and runs on the Rails stack backed by a MySQL database, but we also incorporate other technologies such as Node.js, Memcached, ElasticSearch and Redis. We use GitHub for version control and our infrastructure is entirely hosted via cloud services. We care about keeping our libraries up-to-date and test coverage. While most of our stack is on Rails today, we're comfortable with other technologies and always strive to use the right tool for the job.

This is a full-time position at our headquarters in Dallas, TX and includes a competitive base salary, a full range of benefits, stock options, and an awesome team of creative people by your side.

## Requirements

- Passion for developing excellent software and an appreciation for elegant code

Connexity - Camarillo/Los Angeles, CA

We're building a sophisticated advertising platform. Actually, we've already built a ton of it. In fact, it hums along running a few billion transactions per day. As our business expands, we a few roles to fill:

1) We need a Rails dev to own our campaign management interface. You'll help humans effectively manage hundreds of campaigns for well-known brands and retailers. We serve 50+ million ads every day and process 3.5 billion transactions, and you'll be right in the thick of it. You'll work directly with Postgres, Redis, HBase and Hadoop. You'll also likely play a key role in developing a new API for several key partners.

2) We need someone with fierce tenacity to run QA and technical ad operations. When an account manager sees that we recorded no clicks for a certain campaign in Firefox browsers, you'll get to hunt down the resolution. You'd bring a meticulous eye for detail to bear with browser and Javascript chops. Done well, you'll be a daily hero. (Devs are cheerful when called upon to fight fires, but prefer to write code.) Count on becoming well acquainted with Hive.

3) Finally, we're looking for a strong DevOps team member. You know networking and Linux very well. You'll help improve our Hadoop clusters. You'll tune monitoring and alerting thresholds. Most importantly, you'll eagerly seek to expand your usefulness as you work with the rest of the dev team. We're not driven by dogma, and you'll find yourself in good company if your sole priority is fixing the problem at hand.

I'm one of the lead devs, and you can reach me at dlarsen@connexity.com. I'm happy to speak informally about our situation, and can hook you up with the HR folk at the appropriate time.

WePay.com - Palo Alto, CA - Full-time (Relocation assistance provided)

WePay is looking for talented and motivated software engineers to join our rapidly expanding team. Our transaction volume has more than tripled year-over-year, and we need your help to scale our customers payments to even higher levels over the next few years. We are eager to grow our team of engineers who love programming, take pride in the quality of their code, and are at least decent at ping pong (rock climbing is a nice-to-have).


You must be a great coder that loves to write efficient and maintainable code. We believe that great coders can adapt to whichever new language they need to, whether its Java, Python, PHP, Javascript, C++, Scala, Ruby, or any other SEO-optimized buzzword, so we dont care what background you have (unless you have solely coded in brainfxck). And in fact, we have outgrown our current PHP-MySQL environment and are in the process of architecting our next-generation service-oriented architecture, so we will be excited to make full use of your experience and perspectives as we select the right tools for the job.

You must be able to take complete ownership over a bug, feature, or entire project and drive it to completion. We have to trust that each of our team members can work in relative independence because we hate micro-managing.

You must be open-minded, flexible, and have a pragmatic approach to solving problems. The payments industry can be baffling at times, so we value people who can persevere and continue to make progress with a positive attitude.

One or more of the following specialized skills would be awesome:

* Front-end expertise, including JavaScript, CSS, AngularJS

* Back-end expertise, including extensive database experience

* High Availability and Distributed Systems

* Big Data experience, including Hadoop and/or Storm

* Machine Learning and Modeling

* Experience in Risk and Fraud Detection

* Experience in payments and PCI compliance

* Expertise in Security

* Team Lead experience

If you have any interest or questions about WePay, please contact me directly at steven at wepay.com. I'm an engineer, not a recruiter, so your email will get a response.

Weft - http://weft.io - Cambridge/Boston, MA (office is in central sq.)

   ===========================   ====== What we do =========   ===========================
We're the single source of truth in logistics data -- we track every boat on the water, every plane in the sky, and every truck on the ground so that we can know everything that's going on in the logistics world. We do a lot of analysis and optimization, too.Were working in the largest, least sexy, most invisible industry in the world 90% of everything has been on a ship at one point in time.The problem -> To try to decrease costs, carries have been increasing the size of container ships. The only problem there is that as container ships get larger, the variability in the global supply chain goes up (e.g. a large ship being late causes a headache to more people than a small one).How we fix it -> We track every ship on the water and run a bunch of analysis on our data sets so that we can help our customers smooth out the rough edges. (One company we're working with spends 6.5 mil every month on late fees because of these rough edges).

   ===========================   ===== How we do it ========   ===========================
Data stack -> clojure + postgres/cassandra/redis/rabbit/hadoop/EMR (were a SOA shop)

Web -> Ruby on Rails, Postgres, PostGIS, Angular, coffeescript

Mobile -> iOS, android in the near term

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

   ===========================   ====== And the rest =======   ===========================
We've got some very interesting partners and customers (ranging from CPG companies and telcos to enterprise software providers to regional and international logistics companies). We also have some top tier investors (a16z, atlas)!Looking for help on frontend and data science sides! (also looking for experimentalists for fun hedge fund stuff)If this sounds interesting, please shoot me an email at mike@weft.io!

London, UK / Remote -- https://www.opendesk.cc

We're building a company that designs and makes work space furniture. We're looking for a Python developer to help abstract our systems into a general platform for open making.

Because our products are designed for digital fabrication, they can be downloaded and made locally anywhere in the world. This has allowed us to build global distribution faster than any other furniture company. We've been backed by the UK Government, Telefnica and https://www.crowdcube.com/investment/open-desk-15500

Some info on the founding team and company here: https://www.opendesk.cc/about

I'm the CTO and I currently work on web development with one other developer. We're using Python (Pyramid, SQLAlchemy) and Postgres with a Vagrant dev environment, currently deploying to Heroku in production. New feature development is through standalone WSGI apps, with API backend and Angular JS client. We need your help to build, improve and evolve our current website and systems into what we hope will become an Etsy-scale transactional platform delivering digital designs for distributed manufacturing.

We're based in London. You can work here or anywhere in the world, as long as you can be online for a good chunk of the UK working day. We're flexible on full-time vs part-time and salary vs contract. Email me on thruflo@opendesk.cc

Location: Liverpool/Northwest UK

We're currently building https://pdftables.com which converts tables of data locked upin PDFs into formats more useful for the general public. What sounds like aboring problem actually requires quite a sophisticated approach - PDF's usuallydon't have much in the way of useful structural information in them.

As an engineer at ScraperWiki I can honestly say this is the most fun place Ihave worked. My office offers an environment of self-determination, a chance toexplore all areas of the stack from product development to technical development, operations, security, product design and user experience.

We have a generous holiday package and a guy in the office called Dragon. Hehas a giant fluffy red beard and long hair and is generally an awesome guy.

What more could one ask?

We build things in Python, Go and Node, using Github, EC2 and salt - to name afew things. Of you, we don't ask anything specific, but hopefully you candemonstrate to us some decent experience in building interesting things. Wewould expect someone who at least had a year or two's experience with Pythonor experience equivalent to that.

You can contact me personally or our CEO. Bonus points if you can crack thepuzzle:

<<< underdog.io Soho, NYC https://www.underdog.io >>>

Were (https://www.underdog.io) looking to make our first hire, a Lead Software Engineer in New York City.

Today, we're is a curated, two-sided marketplace for talent. We help growing startups hire amazing people across all verticals at a fraction of the cost of traditional recruiting firms. We're moving toward a bigger opportunity involving information exchange across networks of companies.

In the interest of full transparency, it's a big job with lots of positives and negatives.

The Good:

Traction (https://medium.com/@joshuagoldstein/our-first-four-months-bu...) after a few months.

Proven business model - we're making money every month.

Chance to get common stock in a bootstrapped startup = big upside.

Full technical autonomy. Today, we're using popular languages and tools - Python/Flask, PostgreSQL, Elastic Search, S3, etc. - but you'd have the opportunity to make changes.

Work out of Founder Collective's space in SoHo.

Work with great freelance designers and advisors.

The Bad:

Less structure and certainty than a funded startup.

Fairly tight budget until we raise a round.

Only full-time developer until we build an engineering team.

Email chris@underdog.io to apply.

Sorry, we can't sponsor visa candidates.

Keywords: New York, NYC, Developer, Dev, Python, Flask, PostgreSQL, Elastic Search, S3, Bacon, https://www.underdog.io/

Smarkets, London, UK. Sorry, no remote.

We're always looking for generalist, python-happy software engineers. If you know, or want to learn erlang, even better.

Smarkets is a modern betting exchange with significantly lower transaction fees than the competition. We're a well-funded company with a small, agile development team, and our platform has handled over 600 million of bets since launching in 2010. Smarkets has been featured in publications such as Wired, The Wall Street Journal and TechCrunch and was recently selected as part of the Startups 100.

We are taking on the big players in the betting industry with the lean startup playbook. We think the commission charged by such players is too high, spelling for opportunity to do better.

We're building a reliable, low-latency, highly concurrent betting exchange based on trading exchange designs. We're also building a fast, modern web interface to allow for a smoother experience. Servicing our users is top priority. Whether you want to work on the trading exchange or the frontend, you'll be solving real and challenging problems - from scaling to optimising python to handling near real-time design constraints.

The Smarkets platform is written predominantly on Python and Erlang, and relies heavily on asynchronous programming techniques. We use REST where we can. Life at Smarkets circles around version control, configuration management and automated testing. We can, and do, deploy to production several times a day.

Our software stack is built around Linux, Vagrant, Flask, Eventlet, Postgres, RabbitMQ, Git and Chef - but we are not resistant to change as needed.

Rinse, Inc. - San Francisco (Design District), CA USA - www.rinse.com

Rinse is a technology-enabled dry cleaning and laundry delivery service. Our customers use a mobile app, our website, or SMS to schedule a delivery, and then we use sophisticated software and processes to 'level up' what is still mostly a pen-and-paper industry. We've been growing exponentially for over a year now; if you live in SF and haven't heard of us, you will soon!

Before considering joining our team, you might try out our service. Send me an email and I'll make sure you get a credit.

We're hiring Software Developers of all experience levels to solve problems ranging from the capacitated vehicle routing problem to image processing to linux kiosks. We're primarily Django + Bootstrap.js with a healthy dose of Celery + Heroku + Ubuntu. Big bonus points if you have history in the industry!

We're also hiring a Customer Experience Specialist. No technical skills are necessary for this role, but you'll need well-developed empathy and solid written and verbal communication skills. We have absolutely stellar customer satisfaction and retention statistics, and we aim to keep it that way! If you want to join a rapidly-growing startup in San Francisco, but aren't an elite hacker, here's your chance!

Finally, at our current growth rate, we're hiring part-time drivers constantly. If you have a car, a clean driving record, and want a part time job with evening hours, join us! The job is great for students, or perhaps those who want a little extra cash while bootstrapping their startup.

If you have any questions about any of these roles, please do not hesitate to email me directly at sam <at> rinse.com

ShareLaTeX - UK, full-time, remote, first non-founder developer.

Help us empower scientists by building usable research tools.

Were looking for a full stack web developer to join us as employee number 1 at ShareLaTeX (www.sharelatex.com). Our flagship product is an online LaTeX editor that makes it trivial to get started with LaTeX and collaborate with your colleagues. Students and scientists love us, and now were looking to expand our team so that we can solve similar workflow problems in data analysis and numerical modelling (using Python and R).

You should be comfortable quickly learning new technologies and enthusiastic about improving the efficiency of scientists and their tools. Our current technology stack involves Node.js, MongoDB, Redis, Coffeescript, Angular.js, and Docker, so experience in these is useful but not required. Wed rather see that you have demonstrable interest in the problems we are solving, and that youve created some great stuff in the past.

Some reasons you'd enjoy working for us:

* Around 80% of our codebase is open-source and were big fans of free software.

* Were agile (with a lower case a). We test everything (unit and acceptance), we have a CI build process, a full staging environment to play with, and we automate as much as possible.

* We dont expect you to have to fill up a 9-5, 40 hour work week. A work/life balance is important and we dont think programming is an activity that can be neatly time boxed.

* You can work fully remotely (in fact, you probably will). The founders work remotely already.

* Were a bootstrapped company with no outside investors.

Send me an email: james@sharelatex.com

Nokia/HERE (Formerly Navteq) Chicago

As an organization, we have a long history with map data. Now were looking at interesting ways to use it to change driving.

Were looking for strong Java developers to make this happen. Experience with AWS, apache storm, stream processing or high volume, low-latency applications are all plusses.

The things Ive enjoyed most since starting here a few months ago:

Thread.com (YC S12) - Software engineer who loves product (Python/Django)

London, England.


We're a startup trying to reinvent retail so men can dress well without being subject to the horrors of the high street or having to trawl through millions of items online. We do this using a combination of powerful algorithms and human stylists.

You'd be joining a small, highly technical team with a ton of startup experience (the founders have started and sold 2 companies before). You'll be one of the first technical hires and get to build and own huge parts of the product and work on the core algorithms.

One of our ancillary goals is to build one of the best engineering cultures anywhere, and we'd love you to help us do that. We launched in October and user and revenue numbers are scaling extremely quickly. We're backed by a collection of the top investors from London and Silicon Valley as well as Y Combinator.

We're especially interested in people who are interested in founding their own startup one day. We view working at Thread as a founder bootcamp where you'll learn about all parts of starting and growing a startup.

Crimson Hexagon - Boston - UI Engineer

We use machine learning techniques to make sense of a vast reservoir of social data. As one of the few companies with direct access to the Twitter Firehose as well as the full Facebook and Google+ APIs, we face unique UI problems that you'll help solve with your keen sense of design and attention to detail. You'll be architecting new features that our customers will use to pull valuable insight out of hundreds of billions of social media posts.

There's no precedent for a lot of what we do. Familiarity with modern JavaScript frameworks is a plus, but not a requisite-- We value your ability to think laterally, collaborate, communicate, and execute above everything. We like people who have a background in freelancing. We also like people who come to programming via nontraditional means.

Top pay, top benefits, located in Boston's Seaport district. We're big enough not to be a monoculture, but small enough not to be a corporate cult.

San Francisco, CA - close to Caltrain

Experienced iOS, frontend specialists, and fullstack web. We're always open to good backend, Android, and DevOps engineers as well.


We're a high-standards group with a lot of pride in our products, code, and people. We understand consumer scale and data (Reddit co-founder & engineers) and aspire to build products that customers love. We've had success due to this, consistently getting 4-5 star reviews on app/play stores and net promoter scores at or above the best in the tech industry.

We're friends first and enable you to do your best work. Processes are light and trust is high. At 26 engineers we're not so big where you can't know everyone well and have an impact, but not so small where it's chaos and you don't have anyone to learn from. We value learning and growth (and not having bored people) and invest regular time in doing so. For example, every other Friday is open time for you to do stuff that helps you be a better engineer.

We're looking for folks that love all of the above and can help us raise our standards. You can email us at jobs-2014@hipmunk.com if you're interested!

Folsom Labs, San Francisco, Full Time Software Engineers (www.folsomlabs.com)

We make powerful design tools for Solar PV (think cloud-based AutoCAD with built in physics modeling). Our mission is to make these tools as easy to use as possible, which dramatically broadens the availability of solar. It's a unique place in the solar industry, new technologies desperately need software like ours to convince both banks and installers that they can have positive impact on energy production.

We launched to revenue in January, and have real traction and high growth, and we're still just a 4 person team, so there's a ton of opportunity. Everyday we get to deal with a range of problems that few startups get to offer we have a modern web-stack, we need to use our cloud-clusters for the simulation half of the product, but also get to solve interesting physics/optimization problems on a regular basis (if that's your thing).

KickBack Rewards Systems, Remote (Idaho)

  KickBack Rewards Systems  http://www.kickbacksystems.com  http://careers.kickbacksystems.com
KickBack Rewards Systems is a privately held company founded in 1999 that specializes in customer specific marketing and payments for over 1000 US clients. Our clients include a half-dozen Fortune 50 companies, one of them is an anchor partner in our national coalition loyalty program. As the CTO and Director of Software Development I need some help! You will be joining a medium sized team of 13 developers who all commit to their projects as a labor of love and their lives work. If you are interested in any of these positions my contact information is located under my profile.


Front-end engineer

Our front-end tools are all built in AngularJS with a half dozen other JavaScript libraries like D3. We have some interesting UI/UX challenges in graphing metrics and representing data that our current front-end team describe as nothing less than "the most exciting and challenging work they've had for awhile." You're supported by an incredible UX team to perform the heavy lifting as far as design and deciding which A/B testing should occur.


Mobile Developer

KickBack uses Xamarin (C#) to build a native and compiled mobile application for iOS and Android. We have an amazing contractor building our app who is acting as the lead, architect and senior engineer. You'll be working with the best. We're looking to add a little redundancy and augment the team with additional resources if we can.


Security engineer

Last but not least, I am looking for an Information Systems Security expert. KRS works in a live transaction processing environment and identifying fraud, patterns and preventing information breaches and transaction fraud is second nature to the right candidate. I'm looking for that type-a engineer who cannot sleep if he or she believes an attack vector exist. He or she has an extreme sense of responsibility and can execute on delivering best-practice prevention methods. This role is both advisory ("Team, implement this best practice") and execution ("Team, I implemented this best practice..") We're lean and mean so you should have no problem at all hacking on Ruby one day to deploy a new 'hids' through Chef or drafting a Cisco IOS access-list the next.

Based on the previous experience if github reacts in any way this will probably get resolved sometime in the future.

Here's an interesting problem. The person who committed the text file about suicide has a .ua domain in their GitHub Profile; would this be a specific way to troll Russia if you're Ukrainian? Just start finding important sites and post stuff on there that are legal everywhere but Russia? Not that March 23 is that good of turnaround for Russia to get it blocked when they can unblock it in a couple of hours.

1. Guilt and inertia are tools that companies exploit to compress the wage of loyal employees.

2. Starting a new job is a great skill to learn and develop.

3. When I left my last job, the managers were the nicest to me they had ever been. If other employees see you mistreated then it will tank moral.

pbnjay 10 hours ago 0 replies      
You should definitely go. But I want to add another point not being mentioned: Make sure you have the offer officially in writing before telling your employer. I know of a number of people who were burned when something fell through on the other end and they were left in the lurch.

Also, business is business... Any software consultancy SHOULD understand the inherent risks of a client poaching and/or bringing work in-house. If your current employer will "be really mad" for you advancing your career you should get out ASAP as they don't care about their devs.

Caring about your direct reports and peer relationships is a core management competency.

Do right by your current company and team. Tender at least 4 weeks notice (knowing this gives them additional runway if necessary). Attitude is key-- state that you'll be happy insure to a smooth transition, distribute projects, restructure the team/workload, and put together a knowledge transfer doc. Leave like a pro. Your new employer will likely take note.

You'll want to consult a lawyer about the contract (perhaps the other company can offer a buy-out or the like).

That said, I made a similar decision just over a year ago and, even though I lost the new job I took, I would do it again. Research shows that your long-term and short-term satisfaction with life depends on a willingness to take risks and care for yourself.

And, if your employer is someone likely to get angry at you for taking your career into your own hands, then what are the chances that they'll ever promote you again?

Business is business, your current company is 400 strong, theyll be mad for loosing a client, but its not like theyll have to let people go for just one account with 5 people.

I think its more important to make a decision is how the other company is treating their employees, working conditions?. Do people working there recommend it to their friends?.

Its a great opportunity, and worth taking it, unless there are big No-Nos at the new company, Ill take it hands down.

You can ask your current employer to make counteroffer. Also, indicate that you are willing train the next guy before you leave. You want to leave in good-terms.

You should also know that when an employer want to terminate you, they don't think about your current situation before they lay you off. You still get laid-off when you are in middle of having a baby and need insurance. So employer's current situation shouldn't affect your decision.

Don't bill hourly.


Never reduce your rate; cut project scope instead.

Every project worth doing is worth writing a statement of work.

A good SOW includes acceptance criteria.

Don't expect to work on your own paper; clients will require you to sign their contracts.

Get a lawyer, have them review every contract you sign. (This is why there are MSAs and SOWs.)

The lawyer advises, they don't decide.

If a lawyer is too expensive, your rates are too low.

Also, your rates are too low.

Don't position yourself based on tech stacks. "Node.js consultant" is a crappy differentiator.

Don't set your rates based on your previous full-time salary. Your rate is barely even related to your salary.

Get health insurance.

Do not fuck around on taxes. You owe them quarterly.

Serious consultancies don't demand up-front payment. Do what you need to until you get serious, though.

Finally: you need a lawyer to evaluate that clause. It could be a boilerplate IP assignment, or it could be a blanket concession that your client can file a difficult-to-dismiss lawsuit against you any time for all time.

If this project isn't worth the $200 that will cost you, it's not worth doing at all.

The contract specifies that any knowlege or work you did prior to the contract that you used to fulfill the contract is owned by the company. This is a method to become impoverished, and have all of your related prior knowledge and work owned by the company, causing you to be unable to do similar work for anyone else. There is no future to any of your knowledge and work related to work you did for the company, except by the permission and whim of the company.

Do not agree to this contract.

  "Consultant agrees that all...conceived, discovered,   authored, invented, developed or reduced to practice by   Consultant...prior to or during the term of this  Agreement...and arising out of, or in connection with..."

pbnjay 10 hours ago 0 replies      
For small contracts, I usually ask for half up-front and half at delivery. Medium-size might be in thirds with the second payment invoiced when they get the prototype. For large contracts I tend to do monthly payments with a little bit of front-loading (ex: for a 100k project over 6 mos, 20k x 2 months and then 15k x 4 months).

Your hourly rate is entirely dependent on the project, skillset, and experience. A small PHP-only developer cannot command the same rate that a full-stack backend, frontend, and iOS developer might. Delivery timelines also play in - if they want it next week there's a premium.

I'd avoid that agreement, it's overly broad. I try to make mine assign on full payment / completion of project and cover only the work performed for the contract. If I can swing it, I try a non-exclusive license instead of full assignment as well, which allows me to reuse code.

I would watch out for . . . prior to or during the term of this Agreement . . . the prior language doesn't sound quite right . . .

I typically work with multiple clients not a single client so I include in my contract that I retain the right use portions of the code provide as a deliverable for previous, current and future clients but will not re-use their code in it's entirety. Typically projects have some portions that are standard and re-used over and over . . . occasionally a client will request I agree not to re-use their business logic specific code and that's fair . . .

I would recommend asking them to change the wording to they only own the code/patents of work developed specifically during working hours for their company and projects and that you hold the rights to any code and IP developed on your own time and all work prior to your agreement. Using a more modern standard agreement would probably be a better starting point . . .and having an attorney review it would be recommended before signing anything.

As far as a rate . . . I would google similar job listings . . . without much knowledge of your position I would expect $100 to $200/hr . . . but I would get the IP agreement worked out at the same time as your salary . . .

Ask HN: Your best passive income?
47 points by dangrossman  1 day ago   12 comments top 4
dangrossman 1 day ago 4 replies      
It's been an hour without any comments, so I guess I'll get this started with some updates on my answer:

* Improvely (https://www.improvely.com) is doubling subscribers and revenue multiple times per year, with mid-five-figure MRR. I have about 30 minutes a day of support workload during the week, and rarely anything on weekends. 2-3 days a week I'll spend a few hours working on whatever's next on my TODO list of new features, improvements, architecture upgrades and refactoring. I have a small (<$1000/mo) budget for ads, do no outbound sales, and the vast majority of new signups are referrals from existing users, whether word-of-mouth or via blog posts, tweets, etc.

* W3Counter (https://www.w3counter.com) has ~78,000 users now with 99.5% of them on the free plan. It generates a few thousand a month in subscriptions and a few hundred a month in ad revenue via BuySellAds. I haven't invested any development time into it since a redesign in February, and had a grand total of 5 e-mails for support last month. I don't market the site at all. It's very much passive income -- keep the servers up and everyone's happy.

* I started investing my savings in the stock market when the recession began and everything was cheap. That's yielded a 35% return so far plus dividends. I put aside some money to gamble on individual stocks, but most of it is in Vanguard index funds (total stock market, total bond market, dividend growth fund). A portion of each month's savings go into that, buying and never selling.


A lot of what's made Improvely & W3Counter work so well and be so low-maintenance were learned through things shared on HN, which I'm eternally thankful for. Here's some of what I found most important for SAAS:

* Onboarding is super critical. It's all about guiding new users to "activation" ASAP, which means finishing whatever they need to do to get value from the service. To me, that means the first thing they see after signup is a walkthrough that very clearly tells them what steps to take to get started with their new account, and a set of automatic e-mails to gently remind new users about steps that haven't finished yet. Screens are never empty even if there's nothing to show yet -- show demo data, or a message with next steps to make that screen work, always.

* Track metrics that matter, not vanity metrics. I have no idea how many page views any of my sites had last month, or what their bounce rates were. I do know how much MRR changed, what the churn rate was, and what direction customer LTV is going.

* Someone whose credit card was declined isn't a lost customer. Have a good dunning process -- my users get an e-mail after 1 days, 3 days later, 7 days after that, asking to update their card on file. It's almost two weeks after the initial billing failure by then, and usually whatever the cause (insufficient funds, waiting on a new card to come in the mail, etc) is resolved by then and the subscription isn't lost.

* Someone who cancels isn't gone forever. People have financial issues, get too busy to use the service, are in the midst of changing jobs or winding down a business, trying alternatives, or a million reasons other than not liking your service. Reach out in a few months with a discount and they might come back. A lot do.

* A few FAQs go a long way. So do a few sentences of explanation/help on the screen itself, or tooltips on jargon/acronyms some users might not be familiar with.

* Pricing matters a lot. Try different pricing schemes, you're probably charging too little. Optimally, your pricing tiers should be tied somehow to the value you create for users so that your revenue grows as your customers' businesses grow. Your customer LTV from customers you've already acquired goes up every month, while they still get more value from the product than they're paying -- everyone's happy and growing together.

* Don't outsource or compartmentalize support if you can help it. Answer e-mails yourself for as long as possible. The most consistent feedback I've gotten the past 2 years is how much people are surprised and delighted to get a same-day reply to their e-mail from someone that understands their technical question. If you go above and beyond with support, you'll win customers for life.

Too bad this has been here for 10 hours and no upvotes or comments.

Nice find. Any other vectors for vpn servers besides the pre-auth user-pass-verify one described above?

I know openvpn can be configured to run some script when client is up or down, and I guess the openvpn server can also exploit a client by passing it dhcp-options which it most probably passess to ifup-down-scripts as env vars. But at least for clients there is script-security setting.

I received the following from AWS support at 9:33am US/Eastern today (8+ hours ago): "... We have now been able to reproduce the behavior in tests similar to your scripts to pinpoint where the UDP packets were disappearing, and yesterday evening the team tested a fix that unfortunately had some unexpected problems. I am hesitant to provide any time estimate since any software development has risk, but I'm hopeful it will be fixed today...."

namecast 1 day ago 0 replies      
I'm in for #2. And no to #1, but I'm not sure we'd notice if we did.

Here's a theory that you might be able to chase down with AWS EC2 support folks:

Many, many EC2 instances are either scheduled to be created on the hour (e.g. by cloudformation/knife ec2/whatever) or are running cron jobs that run hourly;

EC2 provisioning tasks and cron jobs usually require connections to outside servers - package installs, apt-get updates, sending logs to s3, etc. - and that means looking up hostnames;

Lots of hostnames are being looked up on the hour as a result, and <resource X> is being exhausted hourly when a flood of lookups go to the DNS server.

Important caveat: resource X may not be the AWS internal DNS server itself! It can be the port it's connected to being saturated, or a particular uplink on a two port portchannel being flaky (and the flakiness is only evident when it's under high load>, or the elastic interface that is attached to the DNS server, or any one of another dozen things.

Are you seeing this behavior across multiple AZs and regions, or just one?

(This is just a theory, mind you, but I've seen this same behavior when managing other large DNS clusters, and it sounds like a good fit.)

Happened to me too, lost about $350 on one client and $1100 on another. The first one was dissatisfied with my work and kept demanding more and more minute changes to reach even the first milestone (essentially a feature creep issue). The second paid initially but I made the mistake of finishing the work on the promise of a final payment which never came. I just ate it.

The truth of the matter is that loosing a grand and a half to learn the F U pay me principle is probably pretty cheap. What hurts more is the time I lost (6 weeks to the first client, maybe 2 weeks to the second). I was inexperienced and "just wanted to do a good job" and assumed that my contribution had little value and that the clients knew best.

Software development is not a handyman service. Clients cant just drop someone else into a project and expect it to ever be finished. So a contractor that can actually deliver is rare and his or her skills are in such demand that clients really dont have the leverage they think they have. I think the myth of the ninja programmer stems from this. An overachieving freelancer that doesnt charge enough is the holy grail.

So in the end, I think the single biggest problem in contracting today is an information deficit on the part of developers. We forget just how much education weve acquired, how few of us are being considered for a contract, how much regular employees are getting paid for similar work, etc. Even now I am almost pathologically incapable of setting my rates correctly and charging the appropriate amount for the hours Ive worked.

Ive been thinking lately that we need a set of guidelines that all developers follow, for the good of the whole. Things like charging half up front, refusing to work for free beyond the hours agreed upon and charging say 75-150% of the going rate for the type of work performed. Freelancing sites like eLance and oDesk should track these at least as much as, say, how often a developer responds to job invites. As it stands, I think we are in a race to the bottom and losing our influence day by day until this mobile bubble implodes by decades end.

A long time ago I did some work for a startup in China (I'm in the US). They paid my first invoice, but stalled and promised and didn't pay the second. After 3 months of listening to their lines ("the check was mailed yesterday", "the check will go out today!", "the person who signs the checks was in an car accident") I saw in the news that they had gotten another round of funding, and who the backers were. So I sent an email to the CEO and said that I'd let their backers know that they weren't paying their bills if they didn't pay today. Guess what? They paid.

I guess you could call it a threat of 'focused shaming'.

The amount due was a relatively small amount. A collection agency might work better for larger amounts.

First, stop all work, close repos, etc etc etc.

This doesn't help you now, but next time get a deposit of two-months estimated work up front. If they don't want to pay the deposit, don't work with them. Now, if you do two months of work and they happen to not pay you, you stop all work, take the deposit, and you lost nothing. If they want to start work again, charge another 2 month deposit up front and scold them for wasting your time.

Time to scold you (sorry)...why the hell did you do 9 months of work without getting paid? What are you thinking?! You have inadvertently taught this company to never pay you, ever. You are now (and most likely always will be) the guys they get free work from.

You might have to cut your losses and move on.

Here are my suggestions (in order):

1. Get the CEO on phone. This worked for me TWICE. If you face the person face to face and tell him that you need the money to operate, odds are he is going to pay.

2. How much can you sabotage him? Can you get/have access to his site/business. Don't tell him that you are going to shutdown the site if he doesn't pay BUT "in case of non-payment, the site might go under-maintenance because of lack of blablabla"

3. See if you can reach some of his friends/clients and if one of them will pressure him to do it. This is very effective if 2 and 1 doesn't work.

4. DMCA notice. If you don't have access to his login/servers, you might want to shutdown the site or a part of it.

Email me if you need help with a cold call.

I expect Australia has a relatively efficient system for settling small claims, assuming you have a reasonably solid paper trail involving signed contracts, dated invoices and evidence of work undertaken. They certainly have decent law firms who should be able to advise on a much more effective way to get noticed and paid than making probably illegal threats involving glassdoor reviews.

There's also likely to be an Australian debt collection agency willing to buy their debt at a substantial discount (again assuming a paper trail) if you've reached a situation where you just want some money for the work done now.

This might seem counterintuitive but if this company is juggling invoices...stopping work is the worst thing to do because you fall off their priority list of people they need to pay.

while i don't think you should work with struggling companies and you definitely shouldn't work if there is a high likelihood of not getting paid..

but if you want to get paid...the best thing you can do is show how it's in their best interest to prioritize paying you over other outstanding invoices...

Two reasons, I think.

First, it was overcomplicated. IKE is widely regarded as one of the most complex crypto protocols ever to come out of the IETF. It's a nightmare to implement and not much easier to deploy.

Second, the policy layer is underspecified. IPSEC works for point-to-point VPN links (though it's not the simplest or best way to get that). It could work opportunistically (but was never deployed that way). But what other service model is there? How do I use IPSEC to talk to Google? How does my stack know who Google is? There are solutions for these problems, but not in mainstream IPSEC implementations.

So, IPSEC became a VPN protocol instead.

UnoriginalGuy 1 day ago 0 replies      
Have you ever tried routing IPSec traffic through a NAT? It sucks. Oh and NATs are everywhere, every home, every office, so that alone might hamper adoption...

Here's a Cisco article that touches on it:


Wikipedia even talks about the problem:


Maybe when IPv6 is common and NAT goes away... But frankly NAT is too useful as a "firewall" surrogate.

Plus what does IPSec really bring that SSL doesn't? It hides port numbers? Meh. For the headache that IPSec setup is, I'll live with the NSA seeing I connected to port 80. Even with IPSec they still know the IPs on both sides. For VPNs give me OpenVPN over L2TP/IPSec any day of the week (plus setting up UDP encapsulation on Windows is a huge PITA).

Depending on how 'huge' your timeseries are, you might be pleasantly surprised with Postgres. Postgres scales to multiple TB just fine, and of course the software can be easier to write since you have SQL and ORMs to rely on. It's also an incredibly mature and stable software package, if you're worried about future-proofing.

Some (constantly-growing) timeseries can be stored on a per-row basis, while other (static or older) timeseries can be stored in a packed form (e.g. an array column).

I find that most of the time, "Big Data" isn't really all that big for modern hardware, and so going through all of the extra software work for specialized data stores isn't really all that necessary. YMMV, of course, depending on the nature of your queries.

ddlatham 7 days ago 2 replies      
For a good answer, you need to provide a lot more detail in the requirements:

- What do the writes look like? If they are coming in a stream how many writes per second do you need to support? If they are a bulk load how large and frequent are the batches? Simple numerical values?

- What do the reads look like? How many queries per second do you need to support? How much data per query? How fast do the queries need to be? Will your queries be simple aggregations? Dimensional queries? Unique dimension value counts? Are approximations tolerated?

- How much history do you need to keep?

- What are your requirements for availability?

- What are your requirements for consistency?

- How fast does new data have to show up in reads?

Without more detail, you're going to get dozens of suggestions which may each be right for a particular case.

Approximately, if you have something like 10+ billion items, use Cassandra.

If you have less than 10 billion items, Postgres will be fine, and is easier to manage IMO.

If you do use postgres, you should vertically partition the table. This will help keep indexes smaller, improve the the cache hit rate, vastly improve the ease with which you can drop older data, and make various other admin tasks easier.

I've done this in the past with a compound primary key of (topic_id, t) where t was a microseconds-past-the-epoch timestamp (bigint) unique within a topic. Then set up a parent table: CREATE TABLE events (topic_id, t, data_fields..) and "CREATE TABLE .. INHERITS events" from it into multiple subtables, named based on the timespan they will hold, like events_2013, events_2014.

Depending on how much data you have, either partition by day/month/year/etc. I partitioned every million seconds (~11 days), since that kept the resulting table sizes a bit more manageable (gigs not TBs).

Add a CHECK CONSTRAINT to each sub-table to constrain the timespan (ie, WHERE t BETWEEN ?? and ??).

When you do a SELECT * FROM events WHERE topic_id = 1 AND t BETWEEN $x AND $y ORDER BY t DESC; the query planner knows which sub-table(s) to query, and doesn't touch the other tables at all.

You can also add a BEFORE INSERT trigger to the parent table that inserts into the correct sub-table, otherwise get clients to compute the correct table name when inserting.

Cassandra was used at Twitter[0] to store quite a lot of time series data.

A typical production instance of the time series database is based on four distinct Cassandra clusters, each responsible for a different dimension (real-time, historical, aggregate, index) due to different performance constraints. These clusters are amongst the largest Cassandra clusters deployed in production today and account for over 500 million individual metric writes per minute. Archival data is stored at a lower resolution for trending and long term analysis, whereas higher resolution data is periodically expired.

I'd recommend OpenTSDB. Using a 11 node hadoop cluster on m1.xlarge nodes in Amazon, (2 name, 9 data), I can ingest a sustained rate of ~75,000 time series datapoints per second in an HBase table.

The upside is that OpenTSDB scales really well with hadoop cluster size, so you can just scale it up to handle more load.

The downsides are that their data schema and query format are optimized for data efficiency, not speed or flexibility. It's really easy to refine a search for a particular metric by filtering on tags, but it's really hard to do any sort of analysis across metrics, so you have to write your own glue on top of that which fetches the datapoints for the metrics you care about, and does its own aggregation.

I have a timeseries problem on the backburner, and like you am hopeful for InfluxDB but it's still missing a couple features that I need, so haven't used it yet.

As another person mentioned, you're going to be looking at columnar databases (few/one rows, with a very large amount of columns) if you have truly large storage requirements. Since my data is still small, I'm sticking with Postgres for now.

I've seen a couple people mention OpenTSDB; another alternative to that is KairosDB[1], which adds Cassandra support and focuses on data purity[2] (OpenTSDB will interpolate values if there are holes).

And to echo another person, just forget about Graphite/Whisper. It uses a simple pre-allocated block format that will eventually cause problems when you want to change time windows.

Graphite is a mature system. It's a pain in the ass, but I generally find it essential for server monitoring.

I'm working on a timeseries database aimed at replacing graphite. It's just getting started, so it probably won't work immediately, but contributions are welcome. Currently the write performance is already better than graphite [1].


[1] This was one of the design goals. Whenever graphite receives a data point a disk seek is incurred - the data point must be appended to the timeseries file. Timeserieszen uses a WAL - data flowing in is immediately written, and periodically the WAL is rolled over into permanent storage.

It also allows you to partition a table by a column (e.g. a day) which means that a new table is created each day. Zero config, fast and operationally easy. Depending on your latency requirements for reads I would also have a serious look at Couchbase but I don't know how well they fare for time-series data.

Depends on the kind of data you are storing. Hierarchical Data Format is a scientific data format developed by the national center for supercomputing. It is specifically designed to store and organize large amounts of numeric data (including timeseries). It supports flat arrays for large data sets, but also supports B-Trees for more relational style data as well. You can also easily tag the array data.

If your format is cast in stone you may also be able to get away with using flat-files. If you implement the List interface or something similar it would be very easy to integrate into your application. (Normally I wouldn't recommend flat-files for anything, but for time series it can be not a bad option, as much as that makes me cringe).

MySQL, Postgres, etc all scale 'just fine' to terabyte sized databases, and the tooling and reporting tools for these databases is unmatched by any NoSQL solution. What really matters is the type of queries you want to run... and whether or not you need to automagically degrade over time. InfluxDB, opentsdb, and competitors provide that automatically, but powerful tools like SequelPro are missing from that space (Though you gain things like Grafana).

If in doubt, start with a traditional RDBMS. And ONLY after you profile your application and see exactly where your pain points are, do something crazy.

Depending on what you are doing you can even try to write it yourself. It would be a good exercise.

Here is a toy hand crafted time series storage design:

Say you are storing tuples of {<timestamp>,<datablob>}. Then querying it by timestamp.

Writer can store it in two files,open in append only mode only. One is the data file one is the index file. Data might look like:


And an index file, it stores timestamps and offsets into the data files where the blobs are:


If you need rolling fall-off. Then create new pairs of files every day (hour, week, month). And delete old ones as you go.

Then if you can ensure that your have time synchronization set up and timestamp are in increasing order (this might be hard). You can do binary searching. If you use rolling fall-offs. Then you can discard whole files periods based on the query range when you search.

All this would go into a directory. Reader and writer could be different processes. Your timestamp and offset sizes should be fixed length. Writer first appends to the data file and then writes the index. Reader knows how to find the last valid record by looking at the size of the file.

First, ask if you really need "massive" scale. Is this an idea, or a well-defined product? I'd imagine if you knew what you were building, you wouldn't be here asking.

So "massive" -- why not prototype on Postgres, and then migrate when you actually have projections on size.

Different orders of magnitude change the technology you work with. Additionally, the latency with which you need to access the metrics (real time, report based).

Cassandra is a pretty solid choice, Influx is really new to the game but is promising.

The big idea in storing time series data is to partition data by timestamp (daily/hourly/minutely depending on how granular do you want it). This technique can be done in various data store:

* I've done it in PostgreSQL using triggers and table inheritance. With this technique trimming old data is as simple as dropping old tables.

* Logstash folks use daily indices on ElasticSearch to store log data which is time series by nature.

* I have heard from quite a few people that Cassandra works really well with this data model too.

First question - do you even need a database right now? Have you for example considered using CSV files and simply loading those files into Pandas or R on demand?

I am currently working on a project analyzing massive amounts of options data and have found this approach to be both quite easy as well as flexible to work with... and as my project matures I may move select parts of it into a database.

I'd guess that if you get an IT job in a workplace that's run by mature adults, you'll be treated much better than what you've experienced so far in school. If someone is going to pay you good money to do work that's valuable for them, they're much less likely to treat you like crap.

By looking only for jobs that can be done by a single person working alone, you'll be (1) making it much harder to find a job (not too many places would be interested in hiring someone right out of school as the lead developer on a project) and (2) depriving yourself of the valuable experience that comes from working with people who are more experienced in your field.

One last point: the tech world is full of people who were the "odd man out" growing up - that would be a pretty good description of me and a lot of my co-workers. Actually, I'm still pretty much the "odd man out" in middle age, but that hasn't stopped me from having a successful software development career working with (and even managing) other people.

Best of luck in whatever path you choose to pursue!

Our main virtual servers are all Breaking Bad characters, with the physical server itself being Heisenberg.

We don't have a reason as to why we name them, but the entire team lived Breaking Bad and it was easy to agree on the name.

MalcolmDiggs 1 day ago 0 replies      
Each instance we run is usually a live version of a specific image (Amazon AMI or Docker), which are themselves a snapshot of the code at a certain moment. We version with Semver, so our machine-images and the corresponding servers all inherit those names.

So for example:

* You could find a github tag in our repo marking v1.1.1

* You could find a server image called the same (mydomain.com-v1.1.1)

* If we're running that image as a live server, it too would be called mydomain.com-v1.1.1.

* If we're running multiple servers off the same image in parallel, we'd just append an arbitrary UID to the end of the name to uniquely identify each instance.

Hope that all made sense.

Name your machines whatever you want and use CNAMEs to address them. It really shouldn't (and generally doesn't) matter what scheme you use. Naming schemes like this are mostly about personal aesthetics. If you think it looks 1337 to encode a lot of information in the hostname you can do that. You can also choose funny names. When you're small it's easy to manage anything and when you grow any unique key to look up in a server database will do.

SEEKING FREELANCER - San Francisco Bay Area, REMOTE is acceptable

Windows Python programmer with focus on creating Windows Services


We are an early stage startup building a log management, monitoring, and alerting service based on our experience running cloud services at Google. We are seeking a freelancer to adapt the agent program that our customers run on their servers to collect system metrics and server logs. It is written in Python and currently runs on Linux so we are looking to adapt it for Windows.

This is a great opportunity to work with a small, very engineering-focused company at an early stage of development working with very interesting technologies. The project will have a big impact on our customers. Plus, the agent is open sourced so this work benefits the community and will give the developer something they can point at for future employers. Finally, this project could result in more ongoing work in the months / years to come.

The main tasks will include:

* Create a build process that will bundle the Python agent as a Windows executable and run it as a Windows service (using something like py2exe)

* Create an installer

* Develop a mechanism to allow our users to easily update the agent when new releases are made

* Write code to collect relevant system metrics from the Windows server

We are looking for candidates who meet the following requirements:

* Windows expert, focusing on Window Services and best practices

* Have built Windows executables from Python on previous projects

* Have created installers for Windows

* Must be willing to provide ongoing support (which we will pay for as needed)

Interested? Email contact@scalyr.com with resume and brief description of how your background matches our candidate requirements.

SEEKING WORK - remote, from Israel

I've been a full-stack Web developer since 1993, when I set up one of the first 100 Web sites in the world. I've been working as a consultant since 1995. I have extensive experience with Ruby (and Rails), Python, PostgreSQL, JavaScript, and many other technologies. I have a PhD in Learning Sciences from Northwestern University; I researched the intersection between online communities, collaboration, social networks, and agent-based models.

My real value isn't my extensive technological know-how. Rather, it's my ability to communicate effectively with both technical and non-technical people, and to turn that communication into business value.

I know how to take business needs and turn them into software, by myself and with others. I also know how to describe technical issues in terms that business people can understand, that allow us to make informed decisions. Many of my clients have used me as a remote, part-time CTO or lead developer.

I also help developers and teams improve their coding and management practices. I frequently teach in-person courses in Python, Ruby/Rails, PostgreSQL, and Git to such companies as Apple, Cisco, Freescale, HP, SANDisk, and VMWare. I also offer online coaching/pairing services to individuals and teams. I can be your "personal coding trainer," setting goals and meeting several times each week to ensure that your code and coding improve.

My aim: Long-term, interesting projects with nice people. (Short-term relationships can also be fine, depending on the work and myschedule.) Bottom line, I like to speak with and help nice people, and feel privileged that my work lets me do so. If I can incorporate elements of what I learned doing my PhD -- an online collaborative platform and social network for agent-based modelers (http://modelingcommons.org/) -- then that would delight me even more.

If I can be of help to you or your company, contact me at reuven@lerner.co.il, or on Skype as "reuvenlerner". You can also read more about me at http://lerner.co.il/ , and on my blog at http://blog.lerner.co.il/ .

Rails full stack, with a focus on the front end

I've been building two mobile-first Rails web apps using contractors for several months. The apps work and I have a good senior back-end Rails developer working for me adding new features. But I now need a new senior full-stack Rails developer to help me upgrade/reinvent the UI/UX - particularly, making the apps look better, easier to use, faster loading, the flows more intuitive, and helping user onboarding. I need someone with very strong HTML5/CSS3/JS development skills along with full-stack Rails, to build out my ideas and improve performance.

The developer needs to be able to make changes directly to the Rails apps, including adding and changing automated Capybara/Test::Unit integration tests. Consumer-facing UI/UX design experience and interest is a plus, but is not required.

I'm looking for someone full-time, paid hourly/weekly, to work with me and the back-end engineer in a very agile, collaborative way, to improve the product and get it launched. I need the right person for several months.

Ideal candidate:* Computer science or engineering undergraduate degree* Several years experience developing web apps in Rails* Interest in consumer-focused apps and friendly UI/UX* Based in North or South America, for good time zone overlap with West Coast US each day for iterative/agile development* Independent, not agency* Fast written English for live text chat* Interest in helping to shape a consumer product, rather than just building against specifications* Possibility of joining as a founding employee in due course

I'm a self-funding, hands-on, full-time sole founder, with a strong business and computer science background. I'm based in Silicon Valley, and the ideal person would be based in North or South America, to give substantial time zone overlap for collaboration via live chat (HipChat).

The stack:* Rails 4* Bootstrap 3* Javascript and JQuery. No front end framework currently in place* PostgreSQL (relational) and DynamoDB (NoSQL) databases

It's mostly a server-side Rails apps that need some JS/JQuery for user input, validation, page transitions, widget integration

Target:* Primarily HTML5 mobile web - primarily small screen sizes, iOS and Android devices* It needs to work (but not necessarily be optimized/responsive for) desktop and tablet too

Tools:* Git for version control* GitHub for code hosting* Code Climate for automated code quality review * CodeShip for automated testing* Heroku for app hosting* Amazon RDS and DynamoDB for database hosting* Amazon CloudFront for CDN* HipChat for chat* Trello for project management

Target compensation: $35/hour, i.e. $1,400/week for full-time

I have 3.5 years of Ruby on Rails experience and 2.5 years of Clojure. I like working with SaaS and building MVP's, especially SaaS MVP's. I've built a ton of MVP's for my own startup ideas and can build yours.

Don't need an MVP built? I can still do the general Rails work, help you migrate off of Heroku, etc.

What you get working with me:

I will help you get your site ready for an awesome launch so you can beat your competitors and start making money.

Hassle-free hosting so you will save time. You don't have to worry about backups, etc.

Reliability. If I decide to take on a project with you, youll have my number and can reach me. I can start right away and will give you updates as often as you'd like.

Save tons of time. I don't really like being micromanaged. If you're the type of person to micro manage then its not going to be a good fit. I like being free to work on the project and complete the tasks as I see fit and you can just not worry about me getting it done.

Transparency: My rate is 3000 a week. I won't bullshit your time away and we'll get things done quickly. My rate also increases quickly.

Recent client: "As an academic entrepreneur, I have engaged in a number of out-sourcing processes and truth be told, _kohanz_ was one of the few that I would still continue working with. He is skillful, honest and up front, knows what he is doing and does his job very quickly and within the time frame promised at the beginning."

Experienced (10+ years) developer of software for medical devices and scientific applications, many with an imaging component. Have architected and led teams to deliver on software for systems in both diagnostic and interventional contexts. Comfortable working in an FDA-regulated & ISO 13485 compliant quality system.

I excel at iterating research or early-stage prototypes (e.g. MATLAB developed by researchers) into commercial-grade software ready to impress the right audience (clinicians, investors, etc.).Developing scientific applications involves a high degree of uncertainty and requires an engineer that actively participates in all phases of the SDLC (e.g. requirements gathering, risk analysis, etc.). My ability to communicate has always led to my role as the technical point of contact for researchers, clinicians (surgeons, radiologists, etc.), and senior executives.

One of my current freelance projects is creating a software application to drive the receive/transmit of a novel ultrasound transducer and then scan-convert the signal into an image in real-time. Outside of the medical domain, my development projects have included an automated stock-trading engine (including backtesting suite) and various sports analytics software solutions.

Technical keywords: C++, C#, Java, Matlab, VTK, ITK, OpenCV, GPGPU, Rails, R, Python, and more.

Roll20 is looking for an independent contractor to help us work on a few new features. We'd want to hire you for 30-40 hours per week, and this is a long-term engagement (as in, at least the next 6 months, and possibly longer). It's 100% remote, we operate currently in Pacific, Central, and Eastern time zones so there's a lot of flexibility.

We're looking for a junior to mid-level person who has experience with Javascript, Canvas, and HTML5 tech such as WebGL and WebRTC. Your main job will be to help us expand the service by building new features under the direction of our Lead Developer (me), and then do a few other miscellaneous tasks such as basic tech support and possibly some very light Linux server administration (if you know how to SSH into a server you're more than qualified for that part of it).

Our stack is:


Ruby (Padrino)




If you're interested in taking this on, send an email to jobs@roll20.net with a brief introduction as well as a link to your previous work (e.g. a Github profile) and your hourly rate. Mention that you saw the ad on HN and we'll put you at the top of the list.

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.

More details about me: http://ram.rachum.com/cv/

SEEKING WORK - remote / Berlin

I'm a front-leaning, full-stack developer that is living in Berlin. I am American, and know just a bit of German (but am learning).

I have experience with every aspect of creating an application, from mockups and UX design, to graphic design, to the full-stack implementation, to deployment.

I've successfully built and sold a past start-up of mine, and have a great deal of insight with product development. Because of this, I'm probably of most value the earlier a project is in its life cycle.

Backend stack: Ruby on Rails, with DBs/data stores such as MySQL, Postgres, Mongo, Redis, Elastic Search.

Frontend stack: my preference is Angular or React.js, though I've done a ton of work with Meteor (and some Backbone). I am well-versed in current best practices, can build responsive mobile-friendly websites, and code pixel perfect CSS and HTML5. I have a great deal of graphic design experience and can help there as well.

SEEKING WORK - Remote or San Francisco Bay Area

Expert Rails, Ember.js and iOS development. I've been working with Rails and Ember since the beginning of each respectively and my iOS dev has done the same.

I have extensive experience building complex single page apps as well as iOS and HTML5 mobile apps using Apache Cordova (phonegap). One of my clients was accepted to Y Combinator after I built their MVP.

In addition to full-stack development, I will help you with product direction and feature development and even lead your team of developers. I'm a strong believer in automated testing which translates into a high quality product and gives my clients an extremely high level of confidence when adding new features and deploying.

Beyond development, you will find that I need very little direction and have excellent communication skills. So, if you need someone to design and build a high quality app, give me a call.


Me: (Rails/Ember.js) Available part-time immediately, full-time on 10/13

iOS dev: Available part-time (15 - 20hrs/wk)

SEEKING WORK - Remote (based in Baltimore, MD)

I'm a technical marketer, and here's how I can help your company:

- Get traction faster (for early-stage startups).

- Turn more visitors into users (aka, conversion optimization).

I do this with any or all of the following, depending on your unique case: Funnel analysis, conversion optimization, A/B testing, SEO, email campaigns and automated emails, content planning, and usability studies.

What makes me different from most marketing consultants:

- I can roll up my sleeves and write code when needed. This saves you design and development time on small optimization improvements. (HTML/CSS, basic JS and jQuuery, Github).

- I'm certified in Optimizely, the A/B testing tool.

- I come from an engineering background (naval engineering), so I love solving real problems (by "real" I mean things that directly impact your revenue).

Need help with the frontend (development and design). It'll be great if you know your way around Angular.js and CoffeeScript. Open to do a quick rewrite with a different stack if you can pull it off (quite a bit there already).

Need help in many other areas too (if you use python, Go, node, JVM).

Early stage, bootstrapped, you know what that means :-)

Project focus: security, identity, user account management.

What's so interesting about the project: Redefining user account security to protect users from attackers. The standard user account management (you see everywhere) is insecure, but it doesn't have to be that way.

Seeking freelancers or partners if you want to get more involved with the project :-)

Looking to get assurances about the security of your site or application? I will perform a thorough code and security audit for you and highlight any issues related to a) security b) code quality and c) robustness.

As part of the service, I will compile a report detailing each issue, the impact it may have on your business, and how to fix it.

I can then work with your developers to fix the issues, or optionally, fix the issues myself.

If you are interested please get in touch. I can also show you an example anonymised report that I recently compiled for a custom e-commerce solution to give you a sense of what my audit covers.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Does your company need better technical marketing material? How about a white paper describing your solution for enterprise customers? A well-written white paper can be used to communicate to business customers the value of your SaaS solution and how it can solve their problems.

I am a technical writer who spent over a decade in software engineering and leading R&D projects before turning my focus to technical writing.

Contact me and we can start a discussion about how my experience and writing skills can help your business.

SEEKING WORK - Argentina

My name is Victor, a 31 year old developer living in Argentina.

I'm a generalist developer and has been for over 13+ years now, officially (career-wise) working as a frontend and backend developer with PHP, MySQL, HTML, JS, etc.

Unofficially, but decent: Android apps (native and web based), C#, Python, PostgreSQL, GIS and a bit of 3D development (Unity and WebGL). I also enjoy setting up and managing servers.

My timezone is beautifully aligned with most of the US and my starting rates would make patio11 cringe.

I'm looking for small gigs at the moment. I can whip up small prototypes and MVP's and I can do quick experiments with ease.

You may contact me at ar_freelancer AT yahoo.com

Thanks for the opportunity!

Rather than thinking about which one is "better", think about which story will accomplish your goals.

The ycombinator folks are probably just looking for stories to help figure out a) who is smart, b) who is creative, c) who gets things done, d) who is excited about things

The second story accomplishes each of the above better than the first.

joshschreuder 1 day ago 1 reply      
I think the second one is great, I always love reading about these kinds of loyalty / rewards program hacking like the guy who ordered pudding to get frequent flyer platinum status for life [1].

I've never done anything like the YC app, so I can't speak for which of these would be better, but personally I like number 2. It shows compassion / social responsibility (donating food), the ability to negotiate (getting managers to give you free stuff) and a smartness with money (breaking even on the meals you were buying).

Resume: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4aVktLek0w0bnRDLVZlTTRCX1U...

Email: wi.is.cold@gmail.com

I'm a software engineering generalist, but my skills run pretty deep in both systems engineering and embedded programming. I'm comfortable working at any level from handful-of-KB bare-metal microcontrollers to Linux kernel drivers to complex multithreaded application design, and I enjoy the variety of working in multiple domains.

My most extensive experience is in block storage peripherals. I've written drivers for a variety of storage protocols and I've designed and built the software architecture for products that move data from storage device A to storage device B at improbably high speeds. But I'm not really looking to get pinned down as a "block storage guy," and would prefer to branch out in a different direction and learn some new technologies along the way. Maybe you have something interesting?

I'm not really looking for yet-another-web-startup opportunities. An attractive position will have challenging problems to solve, a meaningful product to deliver, and a team of smart engineers getting it done. It might involve a physical hardware component, but that's not a requirement. If you are building something on a Node stack, you should be prepared for me to not take you seriously.

Bonus points for use of functional programming languages with strong static type systems.

Resume: Let me say this right off the bat - if you are looking for somebody to produce code and nothing else, year after year, implementing whatever feature is next on the backlog, I'm not your guy. If you are looking for somebody you can trust to find the optimal solution to a wide range of problems that you don't already know the answer to, there may be a reason for us to talk.

I would be happy to learn a new technology, and while I have no aversion to any specific technology (the optimal tool depends on the task at hand), a functional language would be a plus for me.

I'm a recent college grad, looking to relocated to the Bay Area or Seattle. I'm a software engineering generalist, with experience in the Microsoft stack, Java, and Android. I'm looking for an entry level or junior development position.

Previously, I was a program management intern at Microsoft, working on automated development analytics. I also interned at John Deere, working on an embedded systems project in C. Currently, I'm a software engineer at a contracting firm, working on an ASP.NET MVC website.

I'd like to work on a small team, working on an interesting project I can be passionate about. I was to see the impact of my work, and collaborate with smart, motivated people. While I don't have a ton of experience, I'm eager to learn. I'm a quick study, and I'm willing to do additional work outside of coding.

Currently, I'm working on a side-project called TreeType, http://codesean.com/?page=proj2, an onscreen keyboard for Windows, designed to aid people with disabilities. TreeType allows a user to type using only a mouse or other pointing device, and uses a custom layout which is faster than the default onscreen keyboard. It includes autocomplete, which I implemented from scratch.

Email: monica.lent@uni-leipzig.de---I am looking for work in the coming months as a frontend engineer and/or interface designer -- my passion lies both in designing a beautiful user experience and implementing it in concise, elegant code. I minored in Computer Science in university, so I am well-versed in the fundamentals, while having almost five years of practical work experience in IT. I'm comfortable switching between front- and backend, and can debug the full technical stack.

I'm looking for a job that will challenge me to grow in my field, where I get to learn from my colleagues, and be part of a both a technical and creative process. Throughout my career, I've taken on increasingly technical roles, but have always found a way to enhance my work with my design skills.

Please get in touch if you're looking for a frontend developer with an eye for UI/UX, I would be eager to talk with you!

Technologies: Ruby on Rails, Clojure, currently learning Node.js.

Resume: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1MrGZE4fLJWgyTUAdQhDvRGYZ....

Email: christopher.d.bui@gmail.com

I'm primarily a web developer and I'd like to get hired for a either a front or back end engineering job. But, if you have an interesting position like in security or something, let me know.I have the most experience in Rails and Clojure, and I just started playing with Node.js. However, if you're willing to train me or give me some time to learn, I could pick pretty much anything up for you. Like Go for instance, I'd love to get to work with Go.

If you're a startup or software company, another thing I'd love an opportunity to do is be your patio11. I love analytics and want to learn sales and marketing. I can add a lot of value to your company in this way. Give me an analytics dashboard and let me do some sql queries and we can set up emails with incredible ROI.

So if you're around the Chicago area or are hiring remote, let me know, even if you're doing Python or low level C stuff.

I can and will add a ton of value to your business if it's a SAAS one.

Technologies: Python, Django, JavaScript, a touch of Node/Express/Angular/React.

Resume: Will provide via email.

Email: hello@glimmer.io

Github: https://github.com/LarryBrid

About Me:

Studied architecture in Boston before moving to NYC to work in 3D printing. I've done a little bit of code at work, mostly Python scripts to automate physical materials testing on printers, and have been teaching myself web development for a couple of years now.

I made https://glimmer.io/ - in short, it's a Django site w/ a desktop client that allows you to pass your clipboard between machines. It also serves as a searchable record of your clipboard in your browser.

Additionally, I have submitted and had accepted a patch to Django that will be making its way into the 1.8 release. I noticed that the urlize template tag wasn't converting links that lacked a prefix (google.com/foo, for example) and wrote the fix with a couple of tests. It's a small patch, but it felt good to contribute to a big OS project, so if your company works on OS stuff, I'm doubly interested in working with you.

I'm looking for any web development role, but would really prefer not to work only on front-end stuff. Otherwise, I don't really care what your stack is, I'm down to learn as I go.

Willing to relocate: Yes; ideally to the Seattle area.

Technologies: Ruby, Rails, AngularJS, BackboneJS, NodeJS, jQuery. Heroku, AWS, Git/Github, etc.. Postgres, MongoDB, etc..

I love to build products. I've built a lot of good products for a lot of good companies. I have a history of successful exits. I've won (or come close to winning) quite a few Startup Weekends and hackathons in general. 8+ years of experience, 8-ish with JS, 4-ish with Rails. Leadership and mentorship experience.

I'm looking for a change of pace. I've been working long hours for years. I want to regain some work/life balance. In pursuit of this, I'm willing to compromise on a lot of things.

This is a throwaway because my main account is known by people in my company but my interest in changing jobs isn't. Hit me up and I can provide specifics if any of this sparks anyone's interest. Email address is in profile or respond to this with a way to contact you and I'll reach out.

I've been helping my brother expand his business for the past year and a half. We've grown a great deal and for many reasons I've lost interest in the business.

This is probably the longest period I've gone since high school(I'm 27), without working on a side hustle or launching something. Needless to say, I've got the entrepreneurial itch and I'm looking for someone like minded to start working on something.

My background is primarily sales(5yrs) and internet marketing(4 yrs). I've managed Adwords/Yahoo/Bing search campaigns and large link-building/outreach campaigns. I haven't done much email marketing (but I'd like to learn). I've cold called 50-100 leads per day selling anything from SEO services to residential moving quotes(aka the grind). I'm also fairly knowledgeable when it comes to health care for senior citizens.

I have been learning to develop as well. Technologies I'm familiar with: Python, Django, AngularJS, HTML, CSS, PostgreSQL, Wordpress, version control using git and heroku for deployment. I can build an MVP for most basic ideas.

I'm very knowledgeable when it comes to SEO and lead generation(that's basically what I do all day everyday). I haven't done any ecommerce or SaaS marketing but I find both very interesting.

I have a lot of flexibility and free time with my current gig and I'd like to work on something on the side.

Email in my profile is good, let's talk.

Willing to Relocate: Not just yet, but perhaps in a few years. Totally up for periodic travel to the home base, expect me to bring a cot.

Languages: C/C++/Python/CUDA are my bread and butter with a whole gaggle of other with lesser experience (Haskell, Scheme, Javascript, HTML5, CSS).

Technologies: Linux Systems Enginering, GPGPU, signal processing, HTTP, Nginx, Apache, Flask, Pesto, AJAX, SQLite, etc, etc. (If it's out there I've probably at least poked at it a bit.)

Desires:I consider myself a generalist, so I'm interested in a pretty wide range of stuff, but if I had to be more specific then I'd say I'm interested in exploring machine learning more in depth in particular and high speed distributed computing in general ("big data"). Also interested in some of the big architecture work that goes into a website on the backend, cluster computing, message queueing, load balancing, etc.

Resume: Email me yo!

Email: smcallis (at) gmail (dot) com

Education is in signal processing, but I've done a whole bunch of work in software engineering, high speed software development, numeric computation, systems programming and more. I consider myself a generalist and I enjoy functional languages and making software go fast. "Backend" developer would probably not be an inaccurate description of what I do.
