Does your target audience understand regular expressions? I like the approach import.io took: you go to one or more pages with their browser, select the fields you're interested in and they build the extraction (xpath, css selectors) for you. An engineer can take that configuration and instruct the scraper to call a URL and get JSON back. Even with their special browser, help pages, videos I had trouble explaining it to a non-technical person.

"Normal" regular expressions are probably fine. Only with back-tracing or look-forward it might be possible to create complexity so a regex takes too long. Wrapping it into a block with fixed timeout should work.

This is a highly unscientific sampling, but most deep-tech blogs I follow seem to be on gh-pages these days. Medium, less so - I get mostly essays from those.

Jekyll gives you a lot of bang for the buck (including making static assets relatively easy to deploy) and Github provides syntax highlighting in their hosted service.

The drawbacks (as far as I'm concerned) are that Jekyll is overly temperamental, and that even "modern" site generators like Hugo (http://gohugo.io) require switching off too many defaults or tweaking many knobs.

Besides, even if you _now_ feel ease of editing is less important, a couple of years down the line it will be paramount.

I've long felt the need for something "better" myself, and run my site off a Dropbox-synced folder using a custom engine (which I'm currently re-writing - see demo site at http://sushy.no-bolso.com).

But I'm OK with reinventing my bit of the wheel (it's been nearly 13 years now, so I know what I want from a CMS).

I highly recommend the Student Guide to the Art of Electronics: http://www.amazon.com/The-Art-Electronics-Student-Manual/dp/...

The book covers the basics of both analog and digital, and focuses on developing intuition without getting _too_ bogged down by theory, with accompanying labs/projects. I took the course taught by the author of the book before going to school to study the same subject area, and it helped me develop intuition and general electronics knowledge in a way no other course has.

If you want preview of the book, e-mail me and I can send you some scans.

I actually learned a great deal from just reading Sedra and Smith's book on microelectronics. You don't need much more than algebra and trig to comprehend what is going on in this book.

There is some sloppiness in the book, but the first 5-10 chapters, with enough struggling, get you to think in terms of the basic models that you learn about early on. Once you understand how things break down conceptually, mapping theory to reality becomes a more manageable fight as you cross reference theory while looking at existing designs.

Related question, sorry for hijacking this thread:

Are there any simulator-games out there? Like:

"Here are available components in your components box, now draw a circuit that lights an LED without distroying it, regardless how the 5V input voltage is connected. Max component count: 4"

Something in the spirit of Euler-project, but with electronics.

Enroll in undergraduate physics at a community college, or as an unmatriculated student at a university. The electricity and magnetism theory as taught to physicists is in many ways better than that taught to engineers.

Alternatively - and less expensive - read The Feynman Lectures on Physics by Feynman, Leighton and Sands, followed by the first part of Jackson's Electrodynamics.

University of California Santa Cruz' Physics Department has two good courses that teach how to design and build the electronics for use as experimental apparatus. The first quarter is analog, the second digital. After I took both courses, I did well at a summer job where I repaired electronic gear for the department.

If you are willing to consider eBooks, I find the ones at All About Circuits [1] quite accessible. They are yet to be completed in their entirety but the parts which exist are well-written and do well to cover both the theory and practical considerations (there is a laboratory book supplement available too IIRC). Plus, there is a nice forum to turn to for helpful discussions.

For a free resource, it is right up there with TSEGDSP [2].

Above all, always believe that _you_can_do_it_. Anything you set your mind to- it may take awhile, but keep at it & believe in yourself- regardless of what _anyone_- even so-called experts may have to say negative. When you want to go & do something, know that others who have found success at doing something similar, were one day as inexperienced as you might be now. Just try to learn as much as you can- take the good & leave the bad, and have at it as best as you can. Seek out those who can help you, surround yourself with these people- remove negative people from your circle of influencers, and give it your best. Actively do good, & passively fight evil. Make an effort to learn from your mistakes, and remember- god favors someone who puts in good effort, whose heart is in the right place. Don't let yourself get unbalanced, keep pets around you to constantly remind you of what it is to care about someone/something who's not you. Think about what it means to keep them happy, & put forth great effort to have a good relationship with them, they'll always love you, no matter if you're up or down. Be careful not to put all your faith in one person/group of people, they have the capacity/likelyhood to turn on you when the time is right for them. But don't be afraid to ask for help- _everyone_ needs help at one point or another, whether they let you know it or not. And even if you don't believe in god, pray anyway- it does something in our minds that's good for us. Science proves it, believing in something abstract helps our subconscious somehow that science has yet to explain. Look for ways to be an optimist, it'll help you far more than you could imagine. It's very hard sometimes to find the light side of darkness, but it's always there. Even if you have to repeatedly talk to yourself in order to feel a sliver of gratitude for something as mundane as being priveleged enough to not live in a third world country, or a war torn region, that little feeling of gratitude, even if you only feel it for a fraction of a second, has the power to grow in your subconscious and carry you through tough times that will certainly arise. If you can get in the habit of finding something to be grateful for, your subconscious will do some invisible magic & pop up and help you one day when you need it most. Someone like 'mouselover' will post on HN & ask a question that forces you to remind yourself what works for you at a time when you've almost forgotten it yourself.

often the systems that send these emails incorporate an analytics service. query parameters would require an integration with the site's traffic log. privacy implications for site owners

why

- Disconnect between those who care about security and those who engineer marketing email systems.

- analytics is useful (a/b testing), especially in internet marketing

Tracking who clicks what links in emails. Sometimes it's done automatically by mailing tools that don't know any better. They probably "automagically" track all the analytics for overzealous marketing teams, which is a security risk.

Designer here.

Some feedback for your portfolio:

Your website is difficult to use. Make your logo link to your home page. When inside a single project, you should also have a way to view the next project or at least go back to the full project list.

In your projects, you need to include more information. UX design is a thought-process & it's what hirers will look for - include notes, messy sketches, wireframes, then include the final design at the end.

Don't know what to write? Here's some questions to get you started:What does this product do?Who is this product for?What was the goal of the design?Why did you design what you did? What were the challenges you faced? What was your inspiration? What other variations did you design? Why was the final one the best?

When I first started out, I had a very similar portfolio to you - a project title, maybe a sentence & a few images. As soon as I changed my portfolio to include more of a thought process, it dramatically increased its' success rate.

Include information about your experience & projects you've been working on on LinkedIn - a blank page isn't helping you.

Here are some websites to look for remote projects:https://weworkremotely.com/http://www.authenticjobs.com/#onlyremote=1http://jobs.smashingmagazine.com/all/designhttps://dribbble.com/jobs

The most successful jobs board for me is Dribbble. I don't even have that much work on there, but I get about 3 emails a week from people that have found my portfolio. Hustle for an invite if you don't already have one.

I found the site, and then I found your other posts under other new usernames. Please don't spam the board.

That said, if you want to stand out, maybe try linking to a short video of you coding with a voice over. I think most hiring fear is that the remote worker just won't understand you, or doesn't know how to code. A 5 minute video, honestly representing your work, would be a great way to prove you can hack it, and justify closer to $30/hr.

A couple of things:

1) webtorrent [1] will be used to build the next generation of The Pirate Bay. Media companies will have to realize that suing teens for infringing copyright is not an option, since participating in file sharing is no longer a deliberate act when WebRTC is enabled by default.

2) io.js [2] will heavily influence the future of Node.

3) Angular 2.0 will probably be released at the end of the year [reference?]. People might start establishing an Angular fork (similar to what happened in the Node world).

4) Full stack Google: Angular, Dart and Go.

5) We'll find out if there is a tech bubble [3].

6) One of the following will happen: 1) Developers might tend to use bigger and bigger frameworks, or 2) substack-like extreme modularization (current situation in the npm-world).

7) People will move away from native app development. [4]

8) More frameworks will evolve to "reinvent" the DOM. DOM updates will still be expensive as hell. React was just the beginning.

9) Everything will be a SPA. Now that Google executes JavaScript [5], there is no more reason to render websites on the server. (Unless you're using HN, where 50% of the users are using Lynx).

- At least one profitable, company-launching app will come out on Firefox OS first. It likely won't be initially available in English.

- The "freedom and democracy are incompatible" thing will get at least one mention in the mainstream press that won't consist of outright mockery or dismissal.

- Police body cameras will become ubiquitous.

Edit:

- Apple will release the Swift compiler as open source software.

- Something someone at Y Combinator says will be presented as outrageous by the online media. The story will be prominent enough to briefly reach the top of HN's front page and will receive an official response.

* Privacy still will be a target to crush for governments, and so any activity/communication media/etc that could affect that main objective.

* More hacking incidents used as excuse for more rights limitations, or for punishing countries

* Cheap health/activity tracking devices will become more popular (xiaomi mi band price/capabilities range could be a baseline)

* Inequality will keep growing. The singularity in that direction should not happen this year anyway.

* More climate related big incidents, but still no worldwide meaningful actions regarding it.

- The excitement for email newsletters will peak in 2015 and be considered pass in 2016. Email will remain popular, but other formats will take hold and have higher engagement rates. Targeting newsletter type material at other media and platforms instead of email will become more significant in 2015 (such as direct to Slack channels, CRM systems, etc.)

- Text chat and interactive systems will become more significant in a way I can't put my finger on yet. But expect to see more Slack-style activity creeping out to other types of app. Instead of "form filling", many types of app will begin to request data in a more conversational way on a "need to know" basis.

- Privacy will become more mainstream. After apps like DarkMail are introduced, Google and the other players will start to reconsider privacy and we, the people will gain.

A few predictions, mainly around Apple, mobile and wearables:

1. Apple Watch will be successful, although Wall Street will not perceive it as such, and sell over 20 million units. It will not sell in iPhone numbers and as a result will be initially dismissed as a failure by major news companies. It will be the catalyst required to launch the wearable market and sales of wearables by other companies will increase considerably.

2. As a result of a burgeoning wearables market, low to medium end mechanical Swiss watch companies and many lower-end quartz watch companies will see a small drop in sales. None will be in trouble yet. High end Swiss watch companies will have nothing to worry about and will likely continue to see increases in sales.

3. A number of Swiss watch companies will release their own wearables (Montblanc recently did this actually[1] but we'll see a lot more in 2015) - they will mostly be ignored due to lack of features, poor craftmanship, buggy software and high prices.

4. Android Wear will continue to develop rapidly however there will be fewer quality apps on the platform. Many Android Wear devices will not see daily use. Tim Cook will mention this on stage at WWDC later this year.

5. Fitness companies, such as Fitbit, will see a decline in sales but will not be in any significant trouble this year.

6. Apple will improve iCloud reliability significantly, restoring some developer trust but not all. Problems with app review will re-emerge as Apple struggles to define the boundaries for the use of new features in iOS 8 (and 9) and on the new Watch platform.

7. Companies will still continue to mainly launch on iOS first although there will be an increased need to be on both platforms (if not at launch but soon after). This is how it has been this year, I don't see any indication that the trend of iOS-first is going away.

8. Over the year, Google will increasingly control Android and the Play Store. It won't become as strict as the App Store next year however long term users of Android will express concern.

9. Profitability of mobile devices will continue to fall. Samsung's profits will decline in the face of competition from companies such as Xiaomi. Apple's global marketshare will either stay fairly level or increase slightly however their cut of the phone industry profits will continue to increase with them making considerably more money than all other players.

Mostly that things won't happen: No consumer business model or compelling apps for IoT; No home automation standards that actually become standard; Smart watches are still too big; Enterprise IT managers still think PCs are at the end of their development without getting cheaper to support, but can't find tablets to replace them. I could be wrong about the last one. An 11-12" 4k+ tablet light enough to hold in one hand should be possible, but where is it?

What will happen? Imaging and video will continue to get better faster than ISPs and content publishers are ready to handle. Trust in US service and technology providers will continue to erode, along with their overseas sales. This raises the possibility of secure, verifiable, consumer friendly storage and/or communications products emerging, but I'm not going to predict that will happen in the US. The government in the US wants their nose in everything.

I am actually pretty surprised AWS isn't on your list. I would dare say they are the most competitive on price vs features of any service out there. They have a free tier for testing your app (handy while you're migrating to a new service). They have services like Elastic Beanstalk for deployment, management, and monitoring of services at no cost above and beyond the servers and storage you already utilize. And they have more services than you can shake a stick at. Their support is top notch. I have used them to host numerous apps, including Node.js apps, and I can't speak highly enough about them.

I'd recommend either AWS or DigitalOcean. DO is a bit cheaper and easier to get started with (thanks to a real simple interface), while AWS has a bit more to offer in terms of non-hosting services (detailed monitoring, specialized storage and DB services, email services, etc.). Both have pretty extensive resources for getting started and good support.

I'm the Node platform owner at Heroku.

Great timing on reliability questions - I just finished writing an incident report for Node! All apps were up, but about 44% of deploys failed for 1 hour on the 18th this month. That's the only incident report I've had to do in the past six months:

https://status.heroku.com/

Our support team is amazing; we have several node devs on the front lines and anything they're not sure about gets quickly escalated to me. One of my favorite things about Heroku is that all customers - paying or not - get real support from full-time staff with deep experience.

Heroku also works great with non-node apps, as you mentioned. We have hundreds of customers running PhantomJS and doing some pretty incredible things with it (like spinning up temporary dynos to walk their content and pre-generate server-side data for client-rendered single-page apps). PHP, Java, Ruby, etc are all first-class and with official buildpacks - plus, since a buildpack is a simple bash script, you can write one for just about anything:

https://github.com/hone/heroku-buildpack-jsnes

The biggest reason I see folks hacking on less solid services is price. I think we could do a better job of making clear just how far you can go, for how cheap, on Heroku (I didn't realize myself until I worked here). Unverified accounts can run 5 free apps... and verified accounts can run 100! Each app gets 750 free dyno hours each month (there's only 744 hours in a month), and each dyno can handle really amazing throughput with node. To test for yourself, you can write a 'hello world' app, add the free blitz:250 addon, and then slam the app with 250 concurrent users to see how it holds up with nearly a million requests an hour (hint: linear scale without a flinch). You get free rabbitmq, mongodb, postgres, redis, https, etc. All of Toyota Europe is run on node on Heroku, and they only use a couple of dynos per country.

Anyway, I'll end this novel with the conclusion I came to after seeing how the sausage is made: Heroku grows with you. It starts free and becomes cheap once you're pulling non-trivial traffic, and it surpasses everything else in terms of app (vs ops) focus. If you'd like to learn more, I'm happy to nerd out.

Cheers,Hunter

In my experience, I would highly recommend Digital Ocean. Their experience is boiled down to what matters to dev's: simplicity and speed in setup. You can get started with a Droplet (what they call a dedicated virtual) for as low as 5$ a month for 512mb ram.

Go check them out and let us know what you think!

-= MATASANO SECURITY =-Chicago. New York City. Sunnyvale.Application Security Consultant

Full-Time or Internship, work visa sponsorship available.

The start of a new year is a time many people become a bit introspective and reflect on their lives and careers. Those of us who enjoy what we do, and find satisfaction in our work take account of our accomplishments and achievements in the past year. Others may be less satisfied with their current position, and resolve to improve it. If you find yourself in the latter camp, my advice is to find a job for which you are passionate, motivated, and talented. Find your muse; something which engages your heart and mind, and gives you a sense a fulfillment.

For those of us at Matasano Security, this sense of pride and accomplishment comes from assessing the security of application software. We find few things as inately satisfying as discovering ways to abuse application logic and bend it to our will. Better yet is the satisfaction that comes with knowing our clients can now use our information to secure their applications and protect their clients. It takes meticulous attention to detail, and the ability to think outside the box and consider cases the application's own developers didn't. Application Security can be both an intriguing mental puzzle, and an extreme adrenaline rush in a way few disciplines of computing are.

In the coming weeks, gyms will fill up with new members intent on exercising their bodies. Me? I'll continue soldiering on, breaking and helping fix software, exercising my heart and mind. If you'd like to join me, check out matasano.com/careers and contact us at careers@matasano.com.

Freedom of the Press Foundation https://freedom.press -- DevOps Engineer

Full-time, Bay Area local preferred but remote possible for exceptional candidates.

We develop SecureDrop, an open source whistleblower submission system. SecureDrop is currently used in over 15 major newsrooms, including those of the Washington Post, the Guardian, the New Yorker, and ProPublica. [0]

One of our big challenges moving forward is scaling. For legal and security reasons, we require every organization to deploy their own SecureDrop instance on dedicated hardware. We do not offer SecureDrop "as a service". As a result, traditional scaling techniques do not apply. However, we believe that by automating the testing, development, deployment, and troubleshooting of SecureDrop systems, we can continue to support a growing base of SecureDrop installs without becoming overwhelmed. That's where you come in :)

We're building a distributed operating system around the Apache Mesos project, a cluster scheduler that currently runs tens of thousands of nodes in production at Twitter.

Currently recruiting engineers heavily across the stack, from front-end (Rails, Python, Javascript) to back-end (Python, Go, Scala) to core (C++).

We're significant contributors to open source and are one of the main committers to Apache Mesos, as well as other popular projects like Chronos and Marathon.

Our customers run huge numbers of compute nodes, so if you're excited by the prospect of your code running at immense scale, get in touch.

Full-time hires and summer 2015 interns welcome. Please apply via our jobs page for full-time positions or email summer-2015@mesosphere.io for an internship.

RateItNow - REMOTE - http://rateitnow.com/new/

We're a small new startup that has successfully raised funding and we're looking for a mobile app developer and a back-end engineer. We all work remotely on the team - currently spread out in Australia, Singapore, and Poland. We have close ties to Microsoft (via mgmt) and are leveraging the MS stack heavily on the back-end (ASP.Net, Azure, etc.)

We're looking for:

1) Windows Phone, Android/iOS (Xamarin) Developer

We are presently working on a Windows Phone application to be deployed in a B2B type environment with consumer-facing iOS, Android, and Windows Phone applications to also be developed. We have standardized on C# and Xamarin for the app development.

Ideally you will have a demonstrated experience using .NET/C# and Xamarin for mobile app development, but developers with only native iOS and Android development experience will also be considered. Specific experience developing for Windows Phone is nice to have, but not necessary.

2) Back-end ASP.Net Engineer

You must have a strong demonstrable experience with ASP.NET Web Api, ADO.Net, MS SQL Server and be comfortable with handling devops type work within Azure (deployment, management, scaling). Your role will be to build out a fast, secure back-end and APIs in support of consumer-facing apps & website.

For both roles prior experience working remotely is a plus. Above all though, we're looking for smart people with a can do attitude.

The company is well funded (http://www.creandum.com/why-creandum-invested-omniata/) & headquartered in SF. The bulk of R&D will be done in the Helsinki office which at the moment only has a small team, so this is a great opportunity to get in early and grow with the company.

As a backend engineer youll be part of the team responsible for infrastructure code handling millions of events each month. Tasks will include improving existing components and creating new systems for scaling, automating and monitoring of processes. Knowledge of Perl & Bash is expected, however if youre more comfortable with another dynamic language like Python or Ruby and have a good grasp of low level Linux, we should still talk. Familiarity with C would also be an advantage.

As a UX designer you will be responsible for a creating the UIs and improving the UX of Omniata's web interfaces that allow Omniata's customers to make the most of their data. Basic knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript would be a plus, but is not a must.

If you're at all interested in this area and Helsinki as a place to live and work, drop a one line email with a link to your LinkedIn and GitHub profile (in the case of backend) or portfolio (in the case of UX) to careers-hl@omniata.com

San Francisco - PlanGrid (YC12). Near 16th Street Mission BART. VISA, INTERN, FULL-TIME.

We sell an actual useful product for money (think version control for blueprints but our ambitions are much larger). We intend to own the construction software business, which is vastly under-served. The market is huge; construction is a multi-trillion dollar industry globally that still operates like they did in 1950. Our customers are so happy that up until the past three months we've had no marketing or sales whatsoever - we were profitable in year one just from word of mouth.

Our primary hiring philosophy is as follows: Wicked smart, NO DICKS.

We are looking for engineering and non-engineering positions. You can see the jobs and/or apply here: http://grnh.se/r1nhcp

* Senior iOS. We are shipping Swift code this month (see my Swift blog at http://russbishop.net ).

* Android. Small but growing team.

* Backend/API. Python and mongo, but we're investigating alternatives (Postgres? FoundationDB?) because we are steam-rolling to the trillion-with-a-capital-T mark on records.

* Windows. We are just starting this team so you have complete freedom. Will probably be C# with a shared library supporting a Desktop app and RT app.

* Data Science. You would think blueprints were created by professionals with standards. You'd be wrong. Put your machine learning skills to work on real world problems where a 1% improvement saves man-years of effort.

* Web. We do some real magic on the web; check out our blueprint annotating. This team is about to do some major re-factoring/re-writing with a focus on speed and maintainability.

Also hiring an IT Manager, Customer Support Heros, Marketing specialists, a Marketing Director, Field Sales, Biz Ops, and more.

Feel free to get in touch via my blog. I'm happy to answer any questions about what it's like to work at PlanGrid.

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

http://www.hipmunk.com/jobs

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-2015@hipmunk.com if you're interested!

We use OCaml for running our entire business, supporting everything from research to systems administration to trading systems.

The work is challenging, and you get to see the practical impact of your efforts in quick and dramatic terms. Jane Street is also small enough that people have the freedom to get involved in many different areas of the business. Compensation is highly competitive, and theres a lot of room for growth.

You can learn more about Jane Street and our technology from our main site, janestreet.com. You can also look at a a talk given at CMU about why Jane Street uses functional programming (http://ocaml.janestreet.com/?q=node/61) and our programming blog (http://ocaml.janestreet.com)

We're looking for software engineers with a few years of work experience to join our small-but-growing team at our downtown Austin office and work together to get our initial web application into the hands of an eager market.

It's collaborative and challenging, and it's been very rewarding.

In addition to competitive salary, comprehensive health benefits, and equity in an early-stage startup, you will have the opportunity to make an impactful contribution to both the product and the team. You will also get to work with some multi-talented and friendly folks who come from diverse backgrounds and experiences. We're learning a lot from each other.

castAR - http://www.technicalillusions.com/ - Mountain View, CA

We're building truly augmented reality: embedding real, 3D virtual images into the real world. Our holographic images spring out of tables, walls, or other objects; you can walk around them, lean in, and see that they appear as real parts of the world. Since you look at a normal distance, we don't have the near eye issues (distortion, nausea etc) of VR and since our glasses are open and light you can wear them to work or play for hours. We support new sorts of games in which you can see your other players, see shared (or slightly different world), and interact with both. Games, visualization, CAD and other applications can make use of our new display.

We are looking for looking for hot MEs, EEs, robot / vision and gaming hackers in Mountain View.

We are a small, dedicated team of 10 hackers with experience in building hardware, software and successful companies. If you're a GNU hacker you might know me, or you may know one of our founders, Jeri Ellsworth, renowned hacker and maker. We are building a fun, no bull, buzzword-free business. We're not just going after the big guys -- it's in our DNA to support social, user-generated content and make it possible for hackers to do things we can't imagine ourselves. We have a lot of fun things in our pipeline.

If you enjoy hard work on fun engineering problems, come join us on the ground floor as we build the next great user experience.

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

   ===========================   ====== What we do =========   ===========================
We're the single source of truth in logistics -- 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 -> Lots of inefficiencies in the supply chain! One of our customers spends $400mm/year shipping empty containers, another spends $80mm/year on late fees. Lots to optimize!

How we fix it -> We track everything in the supply chain and make predictions and recommendations as to what our customers should do!

   ===========================   ===== How we do it ========   ===========================
Web/data stack -> clojure + postgres/cassandra/redis/rabbit + ruby on rails + hadoop/EMR (were a SOA shop)

Mobile -> iOS, android, mobile web

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:

- A growth hacker

- Data science folks

- Data engineering folks

- Generalists

- Master front-end devs

If this sounds interesting, please shoot us an email at mike@weft.io!

Tableau Software - Palo Alto and Seattle

Helping people see and understand their data.

Tableau Software is growing like crazy and looking for talent: front end, back end, mobile; developers and managers. If you can name a software challenge, we are addressing it to solve our customers' problems.

We are the fastest growing BI software company, and headed to being the fastest growing enterprise software company...but we're really doing that by being an any-knowledge-worker software company in disguise. Better yet, we are an open, collaborative, fast-growing software company with a data visualization product people describe using the words "fast, easy, beautiful."

This is a great company. I started there earlier this year. The development team is top notch, the sales team knows how to treat customers, and HR knows how to take care of us.

http://careers.tableausoftware.com/

Contact me directly and I'll help make sure your resume ends up in the right place. (For better or worse, we're growing so fast that our hiring folks can't always keep up. I was dinged for this last time I posted and I want to make sure it doesn't happen to you.)

No remote.

Flexible hours, open-source friendly environment, remote ok for a lot of the positions, and dog-friendly. We use a mix of Perl and Ruby, but we're branching out in Ember for new front-ends and we're more interested in using the right tool for the job than in specific technologies.

NYC. Open Source Loving Node.js Fanatic Engineer

http://bit.ly/13rU1dp

We're building the world's first corporate bond trading platform written in Node.js. Why is that interesting? Turns out the corporate bond market is a 10 Trillion dollar market that still works like it did in 1978, with traders calling each other up on the phone. Modernization in equities never made it to the bond market, all the biggest players are calling for new solutions (http://bit.ly/1tLXFZq), and that's exactly what we're building. The incumbents in this space are big, slow moving enterprises with six to twelve month release cycles and a fear of Open Source software. We use cutting edge tools push out updates and new features within days and are releasing our own tools back to the community: https://github.com/electronifie, https://hakkalabs.co/articles/eventually-consistent-distribu...

Want to solve amazingly exciting problems with a small team of very experienced engineers? Want to help disrupt FinTech by leveraging OpenSource tools and running circles around the competition?

We are building a platform for people to administer every part of their business, starting with payroll, benefits, compliance and tax filing. We've also built out PTO tracking, some reporting/analytics features and a B2B payments feature. We aren't just about payroll.

We are a PEO, which means we coemploy our customers employees (similar to Trinet/Ambrose or ADP Total Source, if you've ever heard of those). Because of that we're able to do a lot of really cool things including offer health insurance at a massive discount, as well as bring many other benefits traditionally reserved for large companies to startups and SMBs. We're growing very quickly (35-40% month over month) and just raised a $6mm series A from Thrive, Index, a few others[1]. Our founders are former Amazon, Etsy and Groupon executives who have had successful startups in the past.

We handle payments and lots of very sensitive information (bank numbers, social security numbers etc.) so we need people who are comfortable working in that environment. Basically we're looking for senior level engineers to help build the foundation for a really awesome engineering org. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions (will@justworks.com).

No contractors, no remotes, sorry.

Our goal is to make real-time, predictive analytics simple. Every component of our platform is controlled by a web-based drag and drop app designer and/or a declarative, SQL-like language.

With the power of the WebAction platform, our mission is to build new visual interaction models that combines real-time analytics and predictive computations.

Our front-end stack includes HTML/CSS, JS/JQuery, Backbone, LESS, D3.js

===More about WebAction===

It's founded by a team of Silicon Valley executives with multiple successful exits in the enterprise (our CEO has sold 1 company to Lockheed and 2 companies to Oracle).

With every product release, we delight our customers and engage new ones at an ever-growing rate.

Proactive Computing -- Los Altos, CA / Remote

Hiring: DevOps, Backend, and full-stack engineers.

Our stack: AWS, Python, C

Today, computing is reactive. Users pull out their phone or laptop and start from scratch with an empty search box or a screen of apps. There is no context for the task at hand, and no history of the user's preferences. It won't be this way for long, your computer has an incredible volume of data about you stored in email and in calendar so a world where this rich context is put to use is inevitable. We are doing just this -- building rich user profiles and analyzing the tasks each user needs to accomplish in real time -- so that when a user pulls out their phone, they are proactively presented with personalized solutions.

We are moving from a world where computers are tools people engage, to a world where computers proactively engage users with targeted decisions -- simplifying and automating life's daily tasks. This is a categorical shift in how we use computers and we have found early traction and growth via converting daily tasks into actions through large scale data processing of users email and calendar data.

RINSE - www.rinse.com - Design District, San Francisco, CA

Rinse is a technology-enabled dry cleaning and laundry delivery service. We've been growing our service at an exponential rate for the past year, and our customers love us! We have a number of open positions, and have hired a significant portion of our team via Hacker News.

Rinse is hiring Software Engineers to develop our functionality across the stack. We have hybrid mobile apps for both Android and iOS for our customers AND our drivers. We also have sophisticated web-based tools for our customer service team, internal operations staff, and vendors. Laundry is a surprisingly-complex logistical process, and so our customer-facing software is just the tip of the iceberg. We're solving problems like the Traveling Salesman and image classification, too. Our tech stack is approximately HTML5 / Backbone.js / Django / Python / Postgres / Heroku / Ubuntu, but we're a tiny tech team, so any newcomer will be able to shape architecture.

We're also hiring for a "Special Operations Associate" which is someone who may not have unique technical ability, but who has great aptitude and a willingness to work hard to improve our business. Analytical capability and attention to detail are important skills for this person. Bonus points for someone with an Industrial Engineering or Process Engineering background. This position is great for an ambitious hustler looking to join a "rocket ship" startup. Obviously, this position presents a significant growth opportunity.

Any applicant who we interview will receive $25 in free Rinse credit... If you live in San Francisco, give us a try!

Interested? I'd be happy to answer any questions at sam (at) rinse.com.

Hitmeister - http://www.hitmeister.de/ - Cologne, Germany (Full Time, Local, VISA)

Web developer: full-stack, frontend, or backend. Most of us work at all levels of the web stack, but if your strength lies in just frontend or backend work, that's okay too.

We're a small team (10 people) using PHP, Zend Framework, MySQL, MongoDB, ElasticSearch, RabbitMQ, and memcached. We have a customer-facing site, a JSON API, logistics software, and an internal admin site, all of which we build and maintain internally.

Hitmeister.de is one of the largest online shopping portals in Germany, with over 2 million customers to date. We have a warehouse from which we sell items directly, but we also have a marketplace with over 2,000 sellers running their own shops. We're seeing solid growth and we're looking for more programming talent to grow and improve the site.

Speaking German is helpful, but by no means required. I'm from the US and we have 2 other non-German developers. If you aren't an EU citizen, we are glad to help with visa issues. In particular, if you have a CS degree or several years of experience you probably qualify for an EU Blue Card, and we have lots of experience with those. We don't do remote work, but we'll help you relocate.

Here's the job description in German:

http://company.hitmeister.de/jobs/webentwickler-frontend-bac...

Full-stack Software Engineer - Easel TV - local in Central London, UK

Easel TV's philosophy is that the television is special; it's not just another device that's now available with a web browser, it has a unique context in our homes.We seek to exploit that special role by delivering a relevant and potentially personalised televisual experience from our cloud-based software-as-a-service platform, Suggested TV.

Our tech:- Scala, Play Framework 2, Java, Spring MVC, EmberJS- Neo4J, SQL Databases- Git, BitBucket, Jira, HipChat, Jenkins- Cloud infrastructure on AWS and Azure

Skills & Requirements:- You have solid Java skills and some functional programming experience, preferably with Scala.- You are a great web developer.- You are familiar with agile development and continuous deployment methodologies.- You have experience and the scars to prove it.- You are a great team player. - You always feel responsible and want to deliver the best you can.

Within engineering we are a passionate group of people who are extremely interested in building the software that helps our customers around the country thrive in their local communities.

Where: Toronto, Canada, no remote workers. We all sit on the trading floor.

You must be eligible to work in Canada.

Who: K2 and Associates. We're one of Canada's more successful hedge funds over the past 13 years.

----------------------------- What you'll do -----------------------------

We are building out our algorithmic trading infrastructure and you have a chance to get in at the ground floor. Come help us turn our technology team from an integral part of how we do business into a profit center with its own PnL.

We've got the first iteration working and its making money. You're going to make it more efficient.

----------------------------- Who you are -----------------------------

You are a developer who can take an academic paper and turn it into a working prototype because what you are designing won't have been done before.

If you draw a triangle and place computer science, statistics and finance at each of the corners, you're area of expertise is right in the middle. If you don't know finance, don't worry, we'll teach it to you.

You value correctness above all else because when you send 100,000 orders a day if you get 1% of them wrong, bad things will happen...

You are comfortable with F# or C++.

If you love a challenge please reach out to me at cholliday@k2.ca or my email in my profile.

----------------------------- What's in it for you... -----------------------------

- a hedge fund is just like a startup except that everyone gets a market salary and bonuses. If' you've always wanted to join a startup but you're too good/in demand to take a pay cut then let's chat.

- work with a very talented and small team

- get paid to learn algorithmic trading

- be able to invest in our fund

- onsite chef for lunches

- choose your own hours

- you'll learn more in a year than most people learn in 10.

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 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 started underdog.io because we experienced the pain of hiring first-hand, having worked at top-notch startups in NYC.

We're currently live in NYC, but we've had serious requests to open in 10 other cities. While the plan is to scale the recruiting piece quickly, the bigger vision is not as focused on recruiting. We're moving towards building a defensible network between 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 significant money every month. In fact, we're making enough to pay market rate, and we haven't raised money yet.

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

Full technical autonomy. We've built our internal CMS and tools with Python/Flask, PostgreSQL, Elastic Search, S3, etc. but you're in charge of choosing the technologies going forward.

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.

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

Email chris@underdog.io to apply.

Sorry, we can't sponsor visa candidates and we're not looking to hire development shops.

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

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. 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!) in the center of the startup world in San Francisco. 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.

indico -- http://indico.ioBoston, MA

We are indico, a Boston startup making productivity tools for data scientists. We're looking to democratize data science and bring the next generation of machine learning to everyone.

Full Stack Developer:Life moves fast in the world of startups, so we're looking for someone accustomed to filling technical gaps and rapidly moving between projects. Flexibility is a must. Our tech stack is primarily python/javascript, so familiarity with those languages is recommended.

Backend Engineer:We're looking for a backend engineer with experience building reliable distributed systems to deal with large amounts of traffic. An ideal candidate would have a love for software architecture, a knack for building high throughput, high availability APIs, and experience with python. Dev-ops experience is also a huge plus.

Data Engineer:A high quality dataset is arguably even more important than a bleeding-edge machine learning model. We're looking for a scrappy developer who is comfortable with data preprocessing, data normalization, and data collection (web scraping, mechanical turk, etc.).

Front End Developer:We're looking for a developer with design sense to build a beautiful, functional web interface for indico. An ideal candidate would have a deep appreciation for user experience, dream in javascript/coffeescript, and know the ins and outs of clean HTML/CSS layout.

Technical Writer:Machine learning is a highly technical field, and we're looking for someone to help us reach out to the broader community of developers and data scientists. Responsibilities include writing excellent tutorials, documentation, and blog articles that help tell our story to the world. Although prior data science experience is not required, passion to learn more about the field is a must.

Inbox | https://www.inboxapp.com/ | San Francisco, CA (Mission) | Frontend (JS), Design, Backend (Systems+Ops)

Hi! We're "The Company Formerly Known As Inbox,"[0] and we're looking for help building the next generation email platform. We're building a missing piece of Internet infrastructure and are looking for frontend engineers and designers and backend systems and infrastructure/operations engineers to join us.

Companies are building their core businesses around our email 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. If you have experience with automated deployments, debugging running systems, release engineering, and on-call schedules, but are still comfortable writing code, this job[1] might be for you. :)

Many people spend their entire days buried in mail clients which haven't significantly changed in years. That means many opportunities to tackle UX challenges as we build out our client scaffolds and create a new framework for the next generation of mail apps. (Ever meet anyone who really loves their email experience? We want to change that.) Sound exciting to you? Apply here[2].

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

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

* 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 ==

* Our backend is built on tools like Python, Flask, gevent, nginx, MySQL, AWS, and Debian. We've been careful to keep our architecture componentized.

* Our frontend projects use Coffeescript, React, (Re)Flux, WebSQL for offline caching, Atom Shell (NodeJS + Chromium), with a strong focus on extensibility.

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

* We're 40% women on our team of 13 (12 engineers), including 1 of 2 cofounders. We want to make that number 50%.

* Our sunny Mission office is more lived-in 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. Benefits include full health, dental, vision, commuter, and lunch at the office every day. Some remote work / work-from-home is OK too.

Apply via Lever at https://www.inboxapp.com/jobs. Include a cover letter letting us know what draws you to the job. We welcome and encourage applications from women, LQBTQ folks, and people of colour. (We even have some already on the team!)

[0] A certain large company recently launched a product of the same name, so we're going to change ours soon. Roll with the punches, eh?

OMsignal Full Stack Software Engineer [REMOTE or LOCAL]

Headquarters: Montreal | http://www.omsignal.com

Link to Job Offer: https://github.com/OMsignal/omsignal-job-offers/blob/master/...

OMsignal is made possible by the expertise of Smart Textile experts, Data/Bio Scientists, Hardware, Firmware and Software Engineers. Please note that this offer is mostly focused on Full Stack Engineers, but we are also looking to hire smart Data Scientists who have an interest in biodata and possibly people who could help bridging BLE/MSP firmware and driver development.

    What we do    ==========
OMsignal is an exciting Montreal start-up developing a revolutionary line of bio-sensing clothes that connect seamlessly to smartphones. The company is at the intersection of the wearable technology, well-being and fashion markets.

We are a well-funded startup [1] working to deliver a smart biometric shirt. You can read more about our mission on [2]. And for those who followed the US Open 2014, we are the technology behind Ralph Laurent Polo Tech.

We just shipped the product to our first customers.

    What we are looking for    =======================
We are looking for Full Stack Software Engineers who can help us to architect, design and implement a complex system basedon bleeding edge technologies (Scala, Akka, Spray, Reactive Programming [3], iOS, Swift, Docker...), a modern architectural style (Micro Services, CQRS, Event Sourcing, Eventual Consistency), and a clean codebase (Clean Code, Domain Driven Design) -- emphasis on the Engineer over the Full Stack part.

In-depth knowledge of the technologies we use is not required, but having strong Software Engineering foundations is (Algorithmics, Design and Architectural Patterns, ). Understanding that code is read much more often than it iswritten is an absolute must.

You should be willing to face the upcoming challenges (Machine Learning, Predictive algorithms, Opening the platform/iOS SDK/API, -- who knows the rest?).

And of course, you need to speak/write english fluently (we need to understand each other, right ?)

     The Technologies we currently use     ================================= - Backend : Scala, Akka, Akka Persistence, Spray, ReactiveMongo, SBT, Kafka, ZooKeeper - Web : NodeJS, AngularJS - iOS : Swift, Objective C, ReactiveCocoa, Core Bluetooth, CocoaPods` - DevOps : Ubuntu, Docker, Ruby, Amazon AWS/EC2 - Project management: git/github 
The `iOS` stack is more sophisticated than the average iOS App. It includes a Pub/Sub system similar to `Apache Kafka` (that we call iOS Kafka internally), makes heavy use of asynchronous programming + `CQRS`/`Event Sourcing` and computes biometric algorithms and reports.

    Our culture    ===========
We get some inspiration from the Open Source model to achieve high-cohesion (within teams) and low-coupling (between teams) : small, empowered teams, systematic pull requests, developer autonomy.

Our software engineering practices are also influenced by Antifragile [4] principles(Small is Beautiful, Less is more, Hormesis principle, evolutionary darwinism, over-compensation ...)

And if you are on the Paleo diet, like hiking/camping or enjoy a good raclette you will certainly find friends here!

    Next step    =========
If you are curious about the project and want to explore opportunities working with us, you can - reach out to dev@omsignal.com - come hang out on IRC (irc.freenode.net #omsignal) to ask your questions

If you have a `github`/`bitbucket` account, we would love to takea look at what you like doing (even if you feel ashamed of it in retrospective -- explain us what you would improve now)

    Footnotes    =========

Data Science Retreat - Berlin or Remote

Data Science Retreat is the only bootcamp in the world with Chief-Data-Scientists as mentors. We train pretty good people with technical backgrounds into fully-employable data scientists, probably the fastest growing profession right now. We are about to start third second batch, profitable, and growing. If you have an exceptional network of companies, in the Valley or in the EU, we need you. Bringing companies to our hiring day, and getting them to happily leave with their new data science hire will be your job.

Does your network include lots of companies hiring data scientists? We need you. You have lived and worked in the US, preferrably in the Valley, and are plugged in.

The director of DSR cofounded a startup with a Ycombinator alumn, so it's not like we have zero network in the Valley, but this requires far more effort than we can allocate right now with the current team. If you are reading this from SF, and thinking about moving to Berlin, this is a good opportunity.

There are about 10x more data science jobs in the US than in EU, so our goal for the next batches is to serve the US market. We think the education we provide is top-notch, we just need to get noticed by companies hiring from the US.

If you are well-connected in EU, and know how to get to talk with exactly the right person at the right company: we need you. Even if you don't have a good network on the other side of the ocean. Prior start-up experience a plus.

We're looking for someone to take charge of operations, accounting, and event coordination at Data Science Retreat.

You will get to meet lots of interesting people and companies, and be at the center of the data science action in EU.

Find out more about DSR and apply at http://datascienceretreat.com/

We are profitable from day one and growing.

What makes you a strong candidate in our eyes?

-You have a network with the type of companies who are looking for a data scientist right now.-You can talk to anyone, get access to the decision maker, and get him on the phone-You identify with data-driven companies, and can speak their language-You have worked at a company that was data-driven, or whose main product was data-You have been in teams that included a data scientist

If you are applying for the EU position, you need good spoken German (native or close).You don't need to live in Berlin, but it'd be a plus

What we offer:

-Meaningful work, with a huge effect on people's lives. You will help people make a career change into arguably the fastest growing profession today.-Market rate pay, sizeable commission per company you brought that hired from DSR-A friendly and intellectual atmosphere, and a tight-knit and supportive team.-A warm and welcoming office (near lots of good food and transit).-You can sit on our classes when you are not busy; that is, you can start your path to become a data scientist yourself if you are interested-Lots of interaction with famous data scientists who come to teach or give talks. Examples: Ted Dunning, Drew Conway, Adam Blake, Mikio Braun, etc-Potential for growth. If you get things done, you will be a permanent hire. If you generate exceptional value, you can be a cofounder. If you understand the business side of DSR, and help achieving objectives, you will be a crucial part of it

What your day-to-day will look like:

-Contacting companies looking for data scientists, and introducing them to our program-Attending events, meetups, conferences-Giving talks-Connecting people-Following up with companies that expressed interest-Making sure companies are happy with their hires

Ardusat (Project-based education tech with access to space) Salt Lake City, UT

=================================================

Come help change the way science and math are taught in schools! Ardusat (https://www.ardusat.com) is a growing educational technology company providing engaging experiences to science and math students by creating technology, products, and curriculum preparing them to run custom experiments on real satellites in space. With over $6B available in public and private STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) grants, this is an exciting space to work in.

========================================

Why Ardusat is an awesome place to work:

* Early stage startup with successful seed funding round. We've proven that investors and early adopters are excited about our vision, now we need help making that vision a reality! As part of a small team, you'll have the chance to make a real impact on the future direction of the company.

* Education is a space where what you are doing matters. Everyone at Ardusat is here because we believe parts of the education system are broken, and need to be fixed. We want our work to impact student's lives all over the world by cultivating more interest in math, science, and technology.

* We value autonomy, professional development, and life outside work. Do you do your best work when you get out skiing for the morning and work at 1 am? We understand different people work differently, and we want everyone we hire to be inspired by and love what they do. This means that we try to have people work on projects that are interesting to them, provide the resources to continue learning, and give the flexibility to fit in life outside work.

* Space is cool. So, you're not exactly a rocket scientist? Well, we don't actually work with rockets, either, but a satellite engineer is pretty close. We have a close partnership with San Francisco-based Spire and collaborate with their engineering team on a variety of projects. There's a good chance that some of the code you write at Ardusat will be running in space in a few months.

* Salt Lake City is not the Bay Area. We love visiting the Valley, but we're always pretty excited to get home. SLC is more affordable, has way less traffic, and, most importantly, is 30 minutes away from some of the best skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, and hiking in the country. We are proud to be located somewhere where access to the mountains is close enough that you don't have to be a weekend warrior. (We respect powder days)

===============

Jobs Available:

* Front End Developer - We need someone to help develop our various web-based tools. The ideal candidate would be comfortable creating great UX and familiar with modern JS frameworks (we currently use Angular.js) HTML5, CSS3. Experience developing mobile apps is a big plus. We work with a top notch design firm for our creative, but having a decent eye for design is important.

* Embedded Software Developer - We need a full stack embedded hacker to help us develop some of our product offerings. Experience with typical maker technologies (3D printing, proto-board prototyping, Arduino, etc.) is preferred. This is an important, early hire for the team, however, so it involves multiple hats, and we're also looking for someone with experience working with backend technologies including sys admin and backend web development (we use Rails and Node.js).

============

Technologies

We try not to be dogmatic about individual technologies. We've all used a lot of different platforms, languages, and idioms over our careers, so we're not overly focused on any particular technology/framework. However, we currently use/like the following technologies, and experience with some of them certainly helps!

Node.js

Ruby on Rails

Postgres

Angular.js

React.js

C

Arduinos

Docker

AWS

iOS/Android

============

How to Apply

If you think Ardusat sounds like an exciting place to work, we want to hear from you! Please email us at jobs@ardusat.com with a brief description of your background and why you are interested in Ardusat, as well as a portfolio/CV. We would like to see a non-trivial code sample that you feel showcases your coding abilities and experiences whether that's a github profile, side project code sample, OSS contribution or something else. We'll try to get back to everyone as quickly as possible!

If that sounds like a lot of biology, dont worryyoull be up to speed in a week or two. Just know this: there are more than 5,000 rare genetic diseases, in total affecting more than 10 million people in the US alone, and only a handful are treatable. We aim to find treatments for 100 of them in the next 10 years. See who we are at http://www.recursionpharma.com/team

- A track record of outstanding projects, publications, or presentations that demonstrate successful application of the above talents.

- Motivation to tackle some of the most challenging data problems around, to work with other sharp and highly-motivated individuals with diverse backgrounds, and to make lots of patients lives dramatically better.

- Biology background not required; intellectual curiosity and motivation to learn is critical.

- Key tools and skills (not all required): python, machine learning, sklearn, ipython, data science, pandas, interactive analysis, linux fluency, bioinformatics (definitely not required)

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 and work incredibly hard while having a ton of fun. We've done Thailand, Mexico, India, Turkey, Croatia and the Philippines. We just went to Portugal...where do you want to go next?

- 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!

KnowledgeHound - http://knowledgehound.com - Chicago, IL

Full stack (mostly Python/Django) developer to lead a team and architecture. Also searching for dedicated frontend/backend.

   ===========================   ====== What we do =========   ===========================
We build a search and visualization tool used by Fortune 500 companies to harness their small data -- the tens of thousands of (very expensive) survey's they're consumer insights team's have commissioned.

Why we exist: Most surveys and research go straight to someone's laptop hard drive, back of their mind, a neglected share drive, etc. Those surveys can cost 6 or 7 figures. Within the same company at the same time or the same department over time, this knowledge gets lost.

What we do for clients:

   - full-text document search   - search within survey data files   - visualizing data from survey files in browser   - bring B2C quality and usability to an industry accustomed to being a backwater of enterprise software   ===========================   ====== The team ===========   ===========================
We have a collaborative, whip-smart team of engineers and business folks.

Our leadership and client team are the real deal, and joining our team is a great opportunity for a great engineer to develop their "other half" and learn the ropes of growing a successful business. I have personally learned more than I can recount.

We're a diverse team:

    - founders, contractors, employees    - backgrounds in gaming, healthcare, education, aerospace, design, linguistics, market intelligence (our sector), lots more    - men, women, single, married, parents, etc.   ===========================   ====== Who we want ========   ===========================
Soft Skills:

    - Mentoring and growing development teams    - Articulating informed opinions on architecture, engineering quality, user experience, and development practices    - Taking an honest-to-goodness interest in their teammates as human beings (you'll be in good company)    - Working directly with clients, not just at a terminal    - Excellent communication skills
Hard Skills:

    - Required:          - Python, Django (expert)         - JavaScript (expert)         - AngularJS or other JS frameworks (expert)         - Git or another VCS (proficient)         - Automated Testing (proficient)         - Linux (proficient)         - AWS or Heroku based deployment (proficient)    - Preferred Experience:         - ElasticSearch or Lucene         - System Administration         - Setting up/maintaining continuous integration system

It's good that you want to improve your skills, but this is not the way to do it.

You should work on an open source project.

There are plenty of large projects that would be thrilled to have a developer who wants to tackle something more than a small bug, but you have to go find them.

Moreover, open source projects are much more deserving of your talent than the people posting on this thread trying to get some free work out of you. Don't undervalue yourself.

What are you interested in?

Personally, I have contributed to Python, Django and AngularJS because I use all three on a daily basis. Think of something that interests you and I'd be happy to help you find a project that fits your goals.

There's plenty of tickets on Snowdrift.coop (https://snowdrift.coop/p/snowdrift/t), any of which could present a problem.

If you want something particularly challenging, that's off the main development path (so if you fail or take a long time, no one's waiting on you), but that would be useful, one thing I'd like to see is the Snowdrift comment system peeled out as a separate library that provides a Yesod subsite, with sufficient hooks to retain existing integration.

Happy to point you at resources and explain what's currently going on.

Another thing I'd like to see is a notification daemon with two features missing from all the existing notification daemons I've played with:

1) Ability to pull up a history of notifications

If I go away from my computer for a bit, I'd like to quickly review what happened while I was gone. Also, sometimes I want to reference something that appeared in a notification.

2) Batching of notifications by priority

When I'm trying to get work done, I don't want to be bugged every time anything happens. I'd like to be able to say, "low priority stuff, don't inform me more often than every two hours; middling, every half hour; high priority stuff send through right away". Ideally, some sort of pattern matching to adjust priorities.

This could take the form of a new notification daemon (would need dbus and some UI library) or a patch to an existing one.

I am interested in using Deep Learning for several Windows Desktop projects but am struggling a bit due to dependencies in various open-source libraries which are often built on Linux platforms.

I have attempted to use Caffe, which has an unofficial Windows port, which nevertheless is failing to compile for me due to some issue. I have looked at DeepLearning4j, but I am again confused by the setup on Windows since it uses some native libraries for BLAS and provides little help on how to set it up. I am now looking at CXXNET, which looks promising since the source code looks very nicely organised.

Another issue I face is that most libraries come with MNIST, ImageNet, etc. examples where the training data is already pre-processed, and I find practically no examples of how to plug my own data. (In fact, the specific problem I am interested in may require modifying the library a bit.)

I am unsure if this work will be of help to you, though I can imagine other folks on Windows who may benefit from this.

I have a number of clients who need to use up their budget for the year at the end of the year for technical goods and services. Each has a "wish" list of technical goods and services that they would like to pay for, some of which have taxes and other fees includes with them. There are no hourly fees, all of the services and goods are fixed cost, so that's good at least. But the lists can be really long and they aren't in a particular order. The problem is that my clients lose their budget if they don't use all of it exactly. So basically I need a solution that can pick the goods and services and calculate the taxes and fees so that the amount comes out to the exact left over of their budget. Of course, sometimes the budget will get changed by some annoying accountant mid day, so they have to be able to re-run it regularly. It's a real pain!

Make Arc use all cores. Although it's already multi-threaded, all threads use a single processor. Or make Arc scale out on multiple machines by modifying its webserver to shard based on username.

If this works it can run HackerNews.

What about a way to come up with the best lineup in Fanduel (daily fantasy sports game)? It is also a Knapsack problem. To give you a little background, each night you get to build a fantasy team (2 PGs, 2 SGs, 2 SFs 2 PFs, 1 C) within a salary cap. Each player is given a salary for the night and they are given points based on their stats like getting rebounds or assists. To determine what players should perform the best on a certain night, you can use a homebrewed algorithm or get a projection from sites online that project points.

PyCon (https://us.pycon.org/2015/) is always a blast. It's large, but has an amazing sense of community. You will find at least three or four amazing talks each day, on a variety of subjects. The posters area will expose you to all kinds of cool academic and other projects. The Expo Hall is always full of hip companies (giving away lots of great SWAG, of course).

I guarantee you will leave inspired.

For anyone freelancing, any WordCamps in your area may be well worth your time even if you're doing nothing with WordPress. The level of technical information varies depending on size/# of tracks, but there are a variety of other presentations of use (if Chris Lema is speaking, go to that track).

If you're tight on time or money, they're also a decent choice because they're inexpensive by design (almost always under $50 for a 2-day conference; I believe WordCamp Chicago 2014 was $60 if you included the Friday training tracks) and they're generally on weekends.

You can get a fair idea of some of the things you'll find at them and where to find them by going to http://wordcamp.org, and you can find a variety of videos at http://wordpress.tv

What is the best credit card merchant for small transactions?
7 points by snickmy  1 day ago   10 comments top 5

patio11 1 day ago 2 replies      
Paypal Micropayments is 5% and 5 cents.

That said, strongly consider anything you can do which pushes your average transaction value up above ~$20 or so. This is partly due to decreasing the bite of transaction fees but mostly because building a business on $1.50 transactions is really, really, really, really hard when Steve Jobs has not already arranged a captive audience with credit cards on file.

One of the traditional solutions in e.g. social games is selling a virtual currency in $10, $20, $50, etc increments and then using the virtual currency to effect small-value payments. For example, $10 gets you 7 dragon eggs, $20 gets you 15 (one bonus egg!) The thing you were thinking of selling for $1.50 now costs 1 dragon egg. This both helps you get your average purchase up, saves your processing costs, and also increases transaction volume by not having people feel like they're being asked for $1.50 on a frequent basis. (The fact that $10 doesn't divide evenly by 7 is not accidental.)

what kind of monthly volume are you expecting? are these cardless transactions? if they're cardless i dont really see a scenario where you can have $1.50 transactions and make any money. too high risk for the processor.

EDIT: if you don't have a couple months of volume to show a processor it makes it harder to get a good rate. brand new company with online transactions are pretty much highest risk category for a processor, therefore highest rate. fees the processor has to pay visa would be close to $0.50 probably

My suggestion is not to show them code at all, to me the code is just the language we learn to solve problems. Like learning to speak another language, it doesn't change your message, just how you deliver it.

So instead I would present them with a few unique problems that Computer Science helps solve. Whether it is a web site problem, an Arduino or Rasberry Pi based small robot or something large that will catch their attention.

I think showing them how solving problems not only involves critical thinking but also creativity, a no-barriers thought process (e.g. no preconceived ideas on solving an issue), and how you can really impact the world with it. At least in my opinion and experience, kids like to be inspired and don't think in the terms of boundaries so showing them how Computer Science really lets us do that could leave a great impression.

I'd also take a number of slides and have a picture on each one of different things that Computer Science helps solve, e.g. Manufacturing Automation, Welding, Cars, Space travel, websites, communications etc. Make sure at least 2-3 are things they would have never understood were backed by programming, I think that impacts people.

I don't know how french high-schoolers may differ from the US, but my bet is they share most qualities. My son was inspired very much in this way when he was in middle school, and he jumped at the chance to join a technical program for high school.

Good luck and have fun, that is an awesome opportunity to help shape kids view of the world.

Something that might be relatable: show a few screenshots of Angry Birds, and talk about the different roles that went in to making it, such as UI programmers, physics programmers, project managers, designers, etc. That also gives you a great starting point for showing how "a programmer with a physics background" can build anything from games to spaceship software. You could also use Angry Birds as an example of entrepreneurship, both in the sense of "what would a minimum viable Angry Birds be?" and how it took several less popular game launches to get to that point.

I'm going to be focusing on Clojure, JavaScript and Rust. First though, I'm taking a break from Clojure to read SICP and do the exercises/problem sets, because I think that's going to help in the long run. After that I'm reading Joy of Clojure and going back to working on web apps with ClojureScript and Reagent. As for JavaScript, it's easy to work with Node and I'm interested in React.js and WebGL so I'll just keep using it regularly. Rust is very appealing to me, and having just taken a course in assembly at uni, I'm craving some lower level programming. The documentation has improved considerably, right now I'm just working through Rust by Example (http://rustbyexample.com/) here: https://github.com/bryangarza/rust-by-example and then I want to make a Vi clone.

The language that I most want to learn in the short term is Ocaml, been seeing a fair few posts about the language showing up in the past year, it seems like the community is a good fit for me.

MirageOS looks very intersting, and I want to try a language with a strong type system (of the static languages I have only really used C and Java, and Ocaml, Haskell etc seem to be further along the continuum of type systems.)

I also would like to learn about compilers and static analysis and Ocaml appears to be quite popular for such projects.

I would also like to reacquaint myself with Python, and maybe dabble with some Julia as well.

Coq looks pretty intersting as well, but that will probably be late 2015 or 2016.

May start playing around with Rust a little as well, they have some intersting ideas that I am curious about.

I am also keen to play around with assembler again, my only real usage of assembler was in a Uni paper a few years back and looking at some x86 aseembly from GCC and Clang. Thinking of MSP430 and some ArmV7

There are so many languages on my "to learn" list that it's ridiculous. And I never seem to find much time to actually spend on new languages. But, realistically, the one(s) I may actually be able to spend some time on in 2015 are probably:

Javascript - OK, strictly speaking I "know" javascript to some extent, but I don't consider myself an expert on it, and I'll probably be using it more and learning more, for the foreseeable future.

Scala. I keep saying this, but I think I'll have more reasons to actually spend time on this in 2015.

Clojure. See above, re: Scala.

Prolog. Probably wishful thinking that I'll find time to put into this, but we'll see. Some of my interests include NLP, and Prolog has a reputation for being good for NLP applications, so I may finally start exploring that world.

R. The interest is there, but time is, again, the limiting factor. If a real world reason to use R emerges, then I might actually get somewhere with it.

The stuff that's on my list that I seriously doubt I'll even touch in 2015 includes: Erlang, Julia, Nim, Haskell, Ceylon, Kotlin, Ada, Go, Rust, Elixir, etc.

Face recognition using OpenCV.

On a single RPi, it's a hog, requiring all kinds of pipeline optimizations to get results in reasonable time. Combining concepts like SIFT with face recognition is impossibly slow. A cluster sounds like exactly the kind of thing that would help.

Since the examples you've given are already related to image/video processing and since OpenCV is C++, you may find it a good fit. Put a camera on your doorstep, install your cluster, let it recognize your family members, and charm them with a welcome :)

What are they afraid of? (missing deadlines, overspending, lack of visibility into what you're doing, having to handhold you too much). How do you overcome that? How do you communicate it? Network.

Ask HN: What are specific tangible benefits of learning Haskell?
15 points by blackbook  1 day ago   28 comments top 9

yomritoyj 1 day ago 1 reply      
To me the value of Haskell comes from its being an extreme point in the language design space: that of a pure, lazy, strictly-typed language. I think that Haskell provides a very nice syntax and GHC a very nice implementation for exploring this extreme point. The primary benefit of this exploration is that it enriches our understanding as a community regarding language design and program design. I think that is a worthwhile enough contribution.

I think that Haskell's strangeness harms it in two ways. One it puts off people because the superficial strangeness takes some getting used to. More dangerously it makes a small fraction of Haskell programmers dangerously arrogant. They feel that just because they are now familiar with this strange jargon they have become superior to the users of other languages. Depending on temperament this turns them into snobs or evangelists.

I don't think there is any concrete evidence of Haskell's superiority as a practical tool. Programs like pandoc, darcs or xmonad are great but there is no proof (and as far as I know neither have their authors claimed) that they were easier to develop than comparable programs in imperative languages (TeX, git?).

Much better is the attitude of Haskell leaders like Simon Peyton Jones who present Haskell as a ongoing research project with its set of successes and unsolved problems:http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/people/simonpj/papers...http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/people/simonpj/papers...

Learning Haskell adds to the mass of things you know, and the volume of that mass determines the level of your general expertise.

You asked for tangible things, but it's harder to see what those may be. Perhaps your perception will be enhanced: perhaps you will better see and care about side-effects, opportunities for pure functions, etc.

I don't think any learning effort that leads to increased knowledge can be a waste of time.

But it turns out that you can live in the IO Monad and just write Haskell as if were a strongly-typed kind of Python, and quickly get to the point where you are doing something useful, and benefiting from the type system and lazy evaluation (e.g. being able to define an infinite list then just consume as much of it as you want) and the nice syntax for pattern matching, and so on. Then you can gradually add in more and more Haskell concepts as and when a) you feel ready and b) you encounter situations where they'd be useful.

Jumping straight in with monads is the wrong way to do it (and monads are actually easy if you let them sneak up on you rather than trying to chase them, like cats) and the monad tutorials you find on the web are all written by idiots who think they a lot cleverer than they are. Burrito Spacesuit guy, I'm looking at you.

There are two languages that more than anything changed how I thought about programming.

The first is Lisp.

The second is Haskell.

Lisp taught me, essentially, that most of what I'd been doing in other languages was unnecessary tedium, and introduced me to the functional style for the first time.

Haskell taught me that even some of what I was doing in Lisp was itself unnecessary tedium, and that things like typing that I'd found tedious in other languages, could actually work to my benefit. Even though I still don't code in Haskell as my main language, it made a functional believer out of me, and still affects my coding style and the design projects I've done since.

As for 'objectively verifiable', well, go look at most any equivalent program in Haskell or Lisp to one in C or Python and just compare how many code lines it takes to do the same work. All the 'design patterns' and 'constructors' and costly looping constructs and everything else falls away for so much tedious bullshit when you get your hands on a language with proper functional tools. And the benefits to sanity of writing in a state-free style are literally the reason I left purely imperative languages behind.

Even the best, least tedious code I see in imperative languages usually comes from people who've had experience in functional languages: probably my favorite Python programmer to read is Peter Norvig, because his Lisp background shows through even in his Python code. This is why people say over and over again that, even if you never touch a functional language again, it's still good to learn at least one, because it will improve the way you code and how you think about functions and composition of same.

Funny, I once asked the same question about pure mathematics, and got similar answers. In the end I decided pure math wasn't the best bang for buck in terms of benefit to humanity, and decided to work on other things.

When it comes to Haskell, there is a big problem that the people best qualified to speak on the matter have invested a lot of time in Haskell, and therefore are subject to biases associated with their investment in the field.

For one thing, I would ask what programs use Haskell. The only major project I'm aware of is xmonad. This should tell you something about how practical Haskell is.

On the other hand, you may learn something from Haskell. I studied Haskell because I believe there are much better languages out there, and in order to find them we need to understand and improve on the theoretically most advanced languages (i.e. dependently typed languages) and learning Haskell was the best starting point. If this is not your goal, I actually doubt another 6 months of Haskell will help your day to day programming.

Also, what have you managed to learn in the past 6 months? And how were you studying? I found Learn you a Haskell to be the best introduction.

I guess I'm the odd one out on this, but why not send your competitor an email and let him know what he's doing is risky and dangerous. Perhaps he doesn't know? Perhaps he had a developer who told him everything was fine, and a friendly, across-the-aisle approach could help things.

As you said, you'd probably put him out of business, and regardless if that's your competitor or not, it's still a human being with a life that will be ruined.

As icebraining mentioned earlier, it's not illegal to not be in PCI compliance, just really, really dumb.

I would go for a multi-stage approach here:

- first let them know you know, and that you'd like for this to be handled in the best interest of the users (that's who you're doing this for, right?)

- then, depending on the response you have several options:

- If they stonewall, alert the public

- If they respond, figure out what a reasonable timeframe should be for them to become compliant

- Then give them that much time and review the new situation

- If they're still not compliant but have made progress review the situation from the new vantage point

- If they have not made meaningful progress, alert the public.

Don't let this 'opportunity' get the better of you in the ethics department, what goes around comes around and since you're doing your utmost to be anonymous here be aware that you too might have a skeleton or two in your closet and making enemies with nothing to lose might not be in your advantage.

On the other hand: building a bridge for a competitor to walk over when they were vulnerable might place you well some years down the line when that founder is looking for succession.

As for the whole PCI compliance thing: depending on where this all happens in the chain the company might be lying about them being PCI compliant or their auditors have messed up, either way nobody appointed you judge, jury and executioner so tread with some care, the whole thing might backfire in some unexpected and spectacular way if it turns out you were mistaken.

Disclaimer: I choose to treat people the way I would like to be treated.

My $0.02: maybe this is just one way your competitor is inept at running their business. I'd say the probability is very high of that. An overwhelmed founder IMO may be a sweet acquisition target. If he knows he is in over his head, maybe he would be happy to sell you his company for terms you can accept. You'll get all the customers, and you'll also know those customers are in your good care.

If you whack him upside the head with a report to Visa, MC, etc. he'll fix it and continue to be ignorant or negligent in all the other ways he is failing to adequately serve his customer base.

Lastly, and please know I am not accusing you of a nefarious plot here. But anyone reading this will see the potential prize of acquiring a competitor's client base. I want to dispel the myth that a report would be a fatal blow to his company that would result in your company ending up with all his customers. His merchant bank who is really on the hook for his PCI compliance will not terminate his account over a first offense. They will instead make even more money off him by imposing remediation consulting. And if those expenses were to put him out of business, there would still be an acquisition cost in reaching his customers, letting them know that your company exists and selling them on your solution.

My general approach to life: I do my best to limit my actions to those that will enhance or maintain the quality of my reflection in the mirror.

You should report him for the same reason that you should report a competitor that is dumping toxic waste in a stream.

They are externalizing costs to society as a whole to maximize their gain.

If the competitor does not wish to follow the law then they can move to a locale that does not have that law.

1. FALSE ADVERTISING: If the competitor advertises PCI compliance --- or even advertises "we're secure" --- that's very possibly false advertising in violation of Section 43(a) of the Lanham Act [1] and perhaps various state deceptive-trade-practices statutes. Some years back, U-Haul got a $44 million judgment against a competitor whose ads for rental trucks included inaccurate dimensions. The damages award was tied to the cost of corrective advertising that U-Haul would theoretically have to do. [2]

2. TORTIOUS INTERFERENCE COUNTERCLAIM: The competitor's terms of service with the customer probably include restrictions on access to the competitor's system. The competitor thus might claim that the OP's accessing of the customer's data constituted "tortious interference" with the competitor-customer contract. [3] The competitor's lawyers are likely to pursue such a claim, because it lets them reframe the issue in their favor, it might allow them greater discovery from the OP, and it could also lead to a punitive-damages award. (Whether a tortious-interference claim would succeed depends on a lot of facts that we don't have.)

3. CFAA VIOLATION: As others have pointed out, depending on the circumstances, the OP might have violated the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. [4]

All of the above assumes U.S. law applies.

QSA here. In a nutshell, I'd say don't. PCI compliance is enforced by the card brands and acquirers, so it's not up to you to raise a flag here. Maybe they have compensating controls in place to address those issues (one can be PCI compliant while storing cardholder data in clear-text) and, depending on the line of business, they might have a business justification for storing security codes (unusual, but it can happen). Ultimately, it's not your call. What you might perceive as a violation could very well be a known issue with several compensating controls in place to minimize the risk and, if that's OK with the card brands and/or acquirers, your competitor is doing nothing wrong. Leave it to their QSA to determine their compliance status and to their acquirer to make sure that they're compliant.

Your competitor's merchant processor should have an audit process where this is discovered.

It is unlikely that reporting it to said merchant processor will result in account termination since if your competitor is not at the level where an audit is required, he/she is simply filling out a form.

Incidentally, PCI-DSS 3.0 went into effect today, so anyone using Heroku for commerce became non-compliant today!

Are they on the Visa registry of Qualified Service Providers (http://www.visa.com/splisting/searchGrsp.do)? If either of those is the case, this is a big problem. Report it to Visa.

Or is this some small operation which provides services for a niche market and is below the 300,000 transactions/year where it gets serious? Then, maybe not so much.

Visa is quite serious about enforcing those standards. They took away every user-facing credit card reader from Barnes and Noble for a year after a breach. They took away Sony Online's ability to accept credit cards at all for several weeks after Sony had a breach.

First, a disclaimer. I am not a lawyer, nor am I even American, so all of this should be taken with the understanding that I'm really not qualified.

I don't know how you found these violations and, for all I know, you may not even be in the United States, but if you are, I would consider speaking with an attorney (preferably one with experience working cybercrime cases) to make sure that you aren't going to stumble into CFAA territory.

If I were your competitor, if I happened to find out that it was you, one option would be to call, "HACKER!! EVIL HACKER!!" And, looking at some recent cybercrime prosecutions (ie - aaronsw), if your competitor happened to catch the ear of the right prosecutor, you could be in heaps of trouble.

I hope that you do report this - your competitor honestly sounds like a scumbag. But, because he/she sounds like such a scumbag, they may not fade gracefully into obscurity. Protect yourself accordingly.

"Reporting" someone for a PCI violation won't do much. At most they might lose their certification level temporarily as their PCI auditor makes them implement fixes. In fact there might even be a grace period for them to fix problems, so no action will be visible to their customers. Even if they lose PCI certification, that's not something customers look for or know about.

If you want to damage their reputation, write a blog post in a way not traceable to your company exposing the actions of your competitor. Or get a news agency to notice, and be an anonymous source. This probably isn't worth the trouble.

The white hat solution, as others have mentioned, is tell them. If they don't have the problems resolved within some reasonable time span (a month if you're feeling mean, 6 months if you're feeling nice), then I would say you're morally justified in smearing the hell out of them.

This raises an interesting hypothetical.

I would personally alert your competitor before disclosing anything the public.

As far as putting them out of business, I wouldn't be so certain of that outcome. For one thing the matter of PCI compliance is between your competitor and their payment processors. If you figure out a way to report them, their processor may just give them a chance to fix it and it will all be handled quietly. Or it could result in an audit, fines, their processor dropping them, etc. Those are all bad for the competitor, but not necessarily something that will put them out of business.

Posting on a public forum has potential to scare customers if there is such a place to post your message for your niche where "everybody" will see it. But there's a lot of ways for that to backfire as well depending on how you handle the posting of the message.

I would only go to your competitor if you have a really good relationship with them, and you know that your report won't be taken as a threat.

If you don't, you're exposing yourself to many problems for very little upside, and my experience is that, when cornered, most people don't tend to react in a reasonable and logical manner (or even in a manner that caters to their own interests). For example, the competitor could accuse you to have came across this information illegally (whether you did or not in the eyes of the law is irrelevant: once you're faced with a lawsuit, your best likely outcome is that you will only have to pay your lawyer's bills); or, they could think you're preemptively covering your ass before starting a smear campaign against them, and beat you to the punch with accusations and threats of their own, and so on.

On the other hand, as some have pointed out, this is a good marketing opportunity for youyou just need to be careful how you use the information. I would, however, avoid making _any_ references to competitors (even indirectly by referring to our competitors), because you don't want to be petty, and you also don't want to ever have to answer the question Who are these competitors of yours? in front of a court stenographer.

You do not mention if the PCI violations could flow through to your competitor's clients; are the credit cards those that customers use to pay for the competitor's SaaS, or are they stored on behalf of customers to provide the service itself (e.g.: the way, say, Stripe stores your customers card data for you)? A breach that leaks credit card data in this case would be catastrophic not just for you, but for your customers as welland these are consequences that have a material impact on the quality of your product over your competitors'.

From a marketing viewpoint, keep in mind that the value this piece of intel is also likely to be proportional to the sophistication of a prospective customer. A potential large client that could is more likely to be sensitive to something like PCI than small fish, and knowing that you can plant the bug in their ear that your competitors might not be as up-to-date on PCI as you are could make the difference between a sale and a missed opportunity.

On the one hand, I'd be putting him out of business (and I'm well poised to scoop up those new prospects)

This is hyperbole. His customers are probably running their business, not monitoring the news for info on every SaaS they use. PCI compliance most likely isn't what keeps them there: it's friction in leaving, customer service, possibly features they don't find elsewhere. There isn't some PCI police that has a list of all their customers and will email them.

If customers are lost, it'll be a trickle. Once they identify what's up, they'll be all hands on deck to fix it, and this amazing competitive advantage you feel fell into your lap will disappear. On the other hand, maybe he'll ignore it - I promise you there will be customers that really don't care. Yeah, they should. But they won't. Your competitor will still be in business

I'd turn it into a marketing advantage, not treat it like a magic torpedo. Many of our competitors outsource their programming or are resellers of one of our competitor's services. (In our industry, whoever has your data has a list of your customers, so important to control who has access to that information) In our pitch, I tell them to ask whoever they do business with, even if it isn't us, if they outsource their operation and who controls the data. In your situation, point out that some companies in your space, without naming names, store their payment data incorrectly, and why that's bad. Then hit them with how you are PCI compliant.

Another thing to consider: if your magic torpedo scenario doesn't play out, then what? There's people out there using a provider that stores payment details insecurely. Announce it publicly, and you've just made them a target for a breach - big payday for those hackers. Muahahahah, I've killed my competitor! Maybe, maybe not, but you've also just screwed over those customers. Even if they leave that provider, when they find out the reason their credit card is being abused is due to your disclosure, there's 0 chance you'll their business, and it could have long term PR repercussions. Hell, depending on your jurisdiction, potential legal ones.

(Yes, everyone will say it's not altron's fault - it's his competitor's. It's both at that point. If I tell the world about someone I don't like who leaves their house unlocked, I'm an asshole, and don't deserve to be liked)

About the only situation where I feel this works out well for you is to contact the customers of theirs that you know, and tell them directly.

Perhaps, just start emphasizing your superior security (and PCI compliance) in your marketing, in a very pointed way. ("Some competitors don't..." or "If considering a competitive offering, ask if they..." but without specifically naming the competitor.)

Note that this doesn't always impress customers and sometimes mentioning security concerns activates customer paranoia such that they convert at lower rates! So you may need to test this.

But, if your customers are security conscious, they'll notice the differences when comparing offerings. When they ask your competitor for details, the competitor will either offer false reassurances, or become increasingly aware of their deficiencies, and fix them. (And them fixing their issues may be in your best interest: a famous failure by your competitor could stain your whole category as too-risky for wider adoption by your target customers.)

If and when there is a damaging breach at any competitor, your practices (and marketing) going back to before the breach can help immunize you somewhat from the fallout, even without you ever directly naming the competitor or its failings. (To directly mention a competitor, or its specific troubles after an incident, could be seen as classless and easily backfire. Not only may you have a lapse yourself someday, but any 'gloating' may draw retaliation from competitors or extra attention from criminal hackers who get more glory when compromising systems that brag about their security.)

Calling them out strikes me as a chance for some short-term gain in a way that I would personally find distasteful, if not unethical.

I agree with the sentiment of "reach our to your competitor privately, inform them of the problem, and suggest they fix it". They may be your competitor, but they probably aren't Satan incarnate, and they'll probably be grateful, and building that relationship may actually be beneficial down the road.

Look at the history with Peter Thiel and Elon Musk before they merged their respective companies. They were competitors, yes. But if either had chosen to make things personal and go into full on attack mode, they might never have merged, we would not have gotten Paypal, and Peter and Elon probably wouldn't be billionaires now. To be fair, you can argue whether or not it's a Good Thing that we have Paypal, but from their subjective perspective, it was better that they were on good enough terms to have the merger conversation.

Every company. Figure out what companies you are interested in, find people who work there, and write them a nice email telling them that you are interested in interning at their company and whom they think you should reach out to to talk about it.

One other interesting way to approach this issue is use LinkedIn to figure out where people who went to your undergrad school are now working. Find people who now work at the companies you want to intern in. Do the above (write them a nice email asking about their internship opportunities).

The key here is not to write 1-5 emails or to write 1000 to 5000 emails. The key here is to write about 10-20 emails that are hyper-specific to each company and each situation. What you are looking for is responses at this point, not internships.

Once you get a response, you can get started talking to the right people.

I can't speak for myself (yet) but some successful bloggers such as Ramit Sethi or Derek Halpern recommend spending even 50% or more time promoting the content you write. But that's of course only one part of the whole equation. One should make sure first that someone will actually want to read that content - i.e. do a lot of upfront research.

Ask HN: Negotiating and licensing software

OP here, my whole question wouldn't fit in 2000 characters so here is the rest:

1. I could charge them more by the hour. My champion at the company thinks they would balk if I told them $250/hr. - even though I would be saving them that much in the first year.

2. Since I intend to have the product finished by the time I negotiate, I could give them a fixed price with very low risk to me say $25K-35K.

3. I could demo a working version when I talk to them. Having something that demonstrably works from Day One should be worth a premium over I think I can get this done in time. right? The risk is that part of my Secret Sauce would be revealed by the demo.

4. What is a good way to point out how much Id be saving them? I imagine I can use that to set/justify my price somehow but Im a little fuzzy on the approach.

5. Licensing the software to them (including source) on a yearly basis say $15k a year. I would have to trust them as this is embedded software and they would have the source. This is the Big Question. I've never done something like this before. I probably wont be licensing this to anyone else. Can I charge more for an exclusive license?

6. The counter person at a junk yard once told me How much have you got? when I asked the price of a part that I needed for my car. Is there a less obvious way of asking this of a client? :-)

Thanks in advance.

I see two problems:* They don't know yet that their approach will fail* If you come to them with an already finished, they will realise it took you a very short time to build it: hence, they'll consider your solution is worth less

I don't think you can put a yearly cost of 15k$, if they already think 25k$ is too much. In their eyes, for the first 3 years (standard license duration in my field...), the TCO will be 45k$+hardware, which is even more unacceptable.

For the "exclusive" license, it all depends if your source code is actually re-usable by a third party...

What you can probably do is come up with a two-fold contract:15k$ for 100hrs at 150$/hIf the software delivered can run on the low-end hardware, company will save $24k/year. Developper is then entitled to a yearly payment of 12k$ for the first 3 years....

It's a win-win situation: if you fail, you still get the 15k$ and they still have a solution. If you can make it, you win 15 +(123) and they save (123)

The justification for a fee of $15,000 is saving $24,000 a year. If there's a licence fee of $15,000 then the savings is only $9,000 per year and the first year has a negative cash flow of $6,000 and there is only $3,000 positive cash flow in year two [not accounting for the time value of money].

None of which consider a the legal fees associated with drafting a licencing agreement or the administrative costs of managing such an agreement.

The thing is, you see, that BoB is all about helping other people make money. B2C is more about 've much money have you got?'

Ask you champion the following questions:

* How much money will the company lose if the project is significantly late / cancelled?

* Who at the company will have the most egg on his face if the project is late / cancelled?

* How much competition do you have from other vendors?

* How risk averse are they (would they pay more for fixed-rate payment?)

I'd like to spin this conversation around a bit. Here is where I would be concerned if I ever wanted to work with you:

You are a contractor who normally charges $150 an hour. You have an inside lead into a potential contract for a company in distress on a project and you know how to complete the work. You believe that your time in this case is actually worth way more than $150 (66% more) and you would like help in getting additional money for your services.

First, you assume there is no risk in writing the software up front and then charging for it. I have had many contracts "in the bag" that turned out to be not so sure after all. You are taking on the risk of writing the software before talking to the client (read: the person who actually pays you a check). This is troublesome, especially for something as short as a 100 hour contract.

Second, this is a 100 hour contract, or so you estimate. Is that really worth the upfront risk of writing it early? I guess you could argue that "it's only 100 hours! Not 10,000, so it's no risk at all." Well, to me that's a $15,000 risk at your rate.

Third, you say that the additional value associated with charging $250 instead of $150 is in the fact that your solution will save them money on operations costs for years to come. While you are probably very right, it will save them money for years to come, isn't that what we all strive for? To make the most efficient running code possible that ultimately saves the client time and money? Would you ever say something like this "Well for $250 an hour I can write code that runs more efficiently, but for $150 an hour I will only write code that squeaks by on the most expensive hardware possible"?

So, if I were in your spot I would not write the solution up front. I would definitely go in and sell them on your solution at your normal, $150/hr, rate with a pleasant but straight forward presentation and good reference. I would explain to them that you are charging your normal rate because it is fair and that others might charge them more because of there situation and that you will be fair and honest with your time and their money. I would estimate the time needed to complete the project then I would get it done and deliver it on time. 100 hours is about 2.5 weeks.

Then you will get paid $15,000 AND you will get something more. You will get a really happy client who will need more work, improvements on what you just made, and be a fantastic reference for your other clients. If all goes well, your name will be passed around to their clients all over the place. That is worth way more than a few $1000 extra in fees.

Ask HN: How can I verify that WhatsApp uses E2E encryption?

Most of the comments so far focus on the fact that WhatsApp is a closed-source system. And just to be clear, it would absolutely be better to have source code. Source code gives you a 1000-foot view of the application and lets you spot obvious problems quickly.

But source code can also lie to you. To really understand what the application is doing, you need to do what security auditors do irrespective of source code availability. Namely:

1. Disassemble the application binary.

2. Debug the running application.

3. Observe the network traffic.

Here's another thing to think about. Suppose the source code were available. How could you trust that the source code provided matches the compiled binary running on your phone? You would need to perform the above steps to verify.

I suppose, if they published the algorithm they claim to use, and if you can stub out the app's random number source (say LD_PRELOAD or the like), and if you can sniff the app's network traffic (again, LD_PRELOAD might be necessary if it's encrypted, assuming they're not using a statically linked SSL library), and if they don't perform one of any number of trivial modifications to the algorithm (such as adding a fixed salt), you might be able to, for a given message, confirm that for that message, they encrypt it identically to how the algorithm they claim to use would encrypt it.

But that's a lot of ifs, and doesn't prove there's no backdoor that's currently disabled.

I think a lot of people here have missed the point a little. It's very easy to subvert E2E encryption of this sort, because no Whatsapp user has any way of verifying that they're talking to another Whatsapp user beyond the Whatsapp servers saying so.

The actual apps could carefully perform the E2E encryption, but Whatsapp could easily MITM the data if (say) requested to by an outside agency, without the app being any the wiser.

It's impractical to verify - you'd have to have the source to Whatsapp's servers, guarantees their SSL keys haven't been compromised, etc etc etc.

You cannot verify that WhatsApp isn't cheating without a source code analysis. And it's even worse, WhatsApp is a doughter company of Facebook, so WhatsApp is falling under Section 215 US Patriot Act.

In short: it's not Facebook's or WhatsApp's fault, but they're forced to cheat if there is the requirement from US officials.

While there may be E2E encryption in WhatsApp, there is no way to get it trustworthy.

Basically, you can't. And this is precisely why open-source is so important for cryptography-, security- and privacy-related purposes.

You can't. WhatsApp is proprietary software that you aren't allowed to audit. Use free software chat programs instead.

Several people have already raised the very good point that ultimately, we need the source code to be certain.

However, can we really be sure when we have the source? I don't think so. The codebase is likely to be large, especially when you start looking at dependencies such as the crypto libraries they may be using (unless you want to assume they are safe themselves), and it has been shown that humans are actually quite bad at finding vulnerabilities in code that is written to obscure its real purpose.

The Underhanded C Contest is a yearly contest that puts this to the test. Participants are given a spec for a small piece of software, and must write a program in C that appears on code review to work correctly, but in fact subverts the requirements in some way. This has been remarkably successful.

Sure, having the code is better than not having the code, but I think that gives us less security than many assume it does.

While you can never be certain that WhatsApp uses e2e encryption without a proper source code review but you can do the following to atleast check it on your side by doing the following.1. Install Charles webproxy2. Configure your device to decrypt the https traffic of whatsapp ( install the ssl certificate and configure proxy)2.5 Enable ssl proxy for whatsapp.3. Monitor whatsapp's traffic using charles web proxy.4. If you can see random encrypted text somewhere in the request or response they are using e2e encryption.

I'll try it tomorrow might even write about it here or somewhere depending on the results.

As to "Use Free Software": the OTR protocol currently stands the test against various agencys and holds strong.I suggest to use software that makes use of it, e.g. ChatSecure.Also, If you wan't someone who's not a random person on the internet telling you this: go watch the talk of Jacob Appelbaum and Laura Poitras from the 31C3.

The Problem with closed source software is an will always be, that we can never be certain of it's security (at least not without reverse engineering every version and fully understanding it).

About new Explorer

I will risk to be blameworthy, but how good is "classic". None ClassicShell does not give such a sense of the familiar and intuitive interface, where everything is familiar. Under Win9x, 2k always infuriated monsters such as Aston, Talisman Desktop, WindowBlinds. How now dream of such an alternative shell for Win7-Win8 (Where it is even more in demand).
