Just a question: why should your friends want to work on side projects? Or, why do you believe your friends should want to work on side projects?

You can't force people to be motivated. You can only show them the way. Build out your own projects. Pick one friend, show them what you've been working on, ask them if they want to join you, if they say yes, then tell them exactly what you need and by when. If they don't put anything together by the due date, then you do it yourself and move on.

Look, it may sound harsh, but get new friends.

Take the time that you'd spend trying to find some way to get your friends to work on a project with you and channel that energy into finding other people who actually want to work on stuff. Join meetups, find local groups, get out there.

If you feel like you're pulling teeth now to just get them to start, imagine once you're actually working and hit a speedbump. Trust me, you're gonna have a bad time.

Between the ages of 16 and 22, I hung out with a bunch of really smart people who weren't really passionate about actually diving in and actually doing stuff. We thought of ourselves as musicians, philosophers, thinkers, people who "got it", better than everyone else, avoiding the rat race, etc. We liked talking. Didn't like doing. Most of us were underachievers at school.

Here's what I've learnt. THE SINGLE GREATEST THING you can do to motivate them is to become successful yourself. This applies in everything from fitness to relationship success. Want to get people fitter? Get fit yourself. Etc.

You may find that it's actually best for both you and your friends for you to FIND and work with people who are passionate enough. Some of them will be inspired by your example. Others will never be interested, and your precious, limited time is better spent focusing on people who actually care.

The advice I wish I got when I was 16- find kickass, badass friends who get shit done. Otherwise you're all just validating each other's fiction and bullshit about why you're dicking around.

... all of this is really more about me and my experience than you- your mileage may vary, your experience might be completely different. Maybe your friends just need to watch a few great motivational videos (this one is my favorite- I've watched it so much it's started to seep into my self-talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-jwWYX7Jlo).

But just putting this out there in case it's useful or triggers something.

You will find that many people just aren't motivated enough for things like side projects. It's the same thing with business. I have tried 3 times (and failed) to start side-businesses with friends..and failed each time because my friends were not motivated enough to spend their free time on something besides relaxing or partying.

Frankly, it sounds like you need to distance yourself from them if they aren't as motivated as you are. If you are constantly with them, they will probably bring you down when they hear about your side projects. Focus on yourself first always.

It depends -

Firstly you need to make sure that the degree being offered is of quality. how do you figure that out ? The simplest model is just to just google the lecturers. See if they are from a top tier university.

The idea of going to university gets a really bad rep in HN but getting a degree is a lot like learning how to walk. Sure you will not create anything of substantial value for 4 years. But a degree gives you a structure that helps organize your knowledge and gives you a deep intuition that will allow you to actually create great products at the end of the road.

I've been able to do this after re-arranging my life over the past 5 years. I bought 7 acres of bare land for $35k and built a 200 sqft tiny house for $4,000. I homestead as much as I can and my bills are approximately $40/DSL, $40/Electrical, $35/Car insurance (I drive a 90s Honda), and approximately $30 a month in property taxes. I spend about $40 in propane for heat in the winter and my air conditioning bill is an extra $15/month in the summer. I'm halfway between Portland and San Francisco and do telecommute node.js/angular work. I'm saving up to build a nice house and a this summer backhoe. Some projects I'm working on this summer include a biodigester to supplement my propane for cooking gas, a rocket mass heater to eliminate my propane, a backyard blacksmiths area, drip irrigation and cistern system, and more fencing for livestock. My property search took me several years and I had no experience in construction but learned most of it from youtube and asking friends. I lived in a camper trailer while I built my place. So to answer your question, about $200 a month is the cheapest I can survive on.

Pick a college town and rent an apartment, optionally with a roommate. In much of the American midwest this implies an all-in rent & utilities expense in the $500 range.

If you wanted to try something more exotic, you can do the digital nomad thing and rent somewhere in Thailand for ~$100 a month, but honestly as a programmer I feel that optimizing sub-$500 expenses is not the best use of one's time versus figuring out how to make money in a stable and hopefully increasing-over-time fashion.

I understand the aesthetic appeal of going off the grid but if you wouldn't get a job as an electrician or day laborer which paid $400 a month then you shouldn't take on any major construction project to save $400 a month.

Used travel trailers and RVs older than 15 years are ludicrously cheap. Arrange with the seller to drop it at your property if you don't have a big enough tow vehicle. You can find small patches of land in rural America for very little money. Say $10k for an acre in woods of no particular scenic beauty with power and water. Once you pick an area a real estate agent can help you find someone's old wilderness retreat or abandoned farmstead.

Speaking as someone with a solar installation, I wouldn't screw with solar if I were worried about cost. Live like you are on solar and you will buy $0.30 of electricity a day from the power company.

Your limitation is going to be fast enough internet, that will keep you close enough to be under cable tv or a benevolent telecom.

My advice: don't take a radical path until you control/manage your current path. I am also a web developer and can/have worked remotely but I think that deep down one needs social interaction (even more so if you have kids!). I was also looking to minimize expenses but instead of taking a radical path I decided to control my expenses while keeping most of my lifestyle and guess what? With enough discipline and team work (your partner, if any, must agree with the plan) you may get very low on expenses without having to change too much your routine. The formula was dead obvious for me and you've heard it a thousand times: pay down debt, get rid of credit cards (keep a couple for EMERGENCIES), get rid of unnecessary expenses, buy used, reuse, don't buy toys, don't eat out too much, buy wholesale, bike to work, walk to groceries, etc. Many times the solution to a problem/want/need is not money but creativity and rational thinking, e.g. do you need a backyard b/c you want a bbq on your 'own' place? You will do that bbq maybe 10 times/year. Is it worth it to buy the land/house for that reason? How about a public park for the bbq, or the outdoors? One final word: a mortgage is 99% of the time a bad (financial) decision.

You may try looking into Tiny houses, they may cause some problems with zoning in some area's so picking a location will require some research.

A tiny house can easily run under $20,000 fully equipped. Some people have been able to build them for under $10,000.

Fix the house with solar panels, maybe a small wind turbine for electricity. tin roof with a rain water collection, you can run is through a 3 stage or 5 stage filter into a small water tank under a couch. Solar or propane hot water heater, propane gas stove. Grab yourself a 5-mile wifi- antenna to pick up wifi from coffee shops nearby. Composting toilet or a standard RV backwater holding tank to take care of the nasty.

A tiny house with this set up can take care of all of your basic utilities and if you are frugal, resourceful and pick up recyclables, you could drive down the cost possibly under $10k.

Check out this video for my favorite tiny house build. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VckbqU4kK2I

Edit: You will need a car/truck that can tow it around. But an automobile would definitely come in handy if you still want to commute into the city.

The cost to run utilities to a property varies considerably with location. Typically it depends on the distance of your property from existing electrical lines. If you purchase land way off grid it can cost > $100K to get an electrical connection. So you need to do some research before buying any land. At some point it is cheaper to generate your own electricity. If you generate your own electricity then you need to research what form of energy is most plentiful for your region (solar, wind, hydro, or a gas / diesel generator). You might consider getting a property with decent hydroelectric "head" (water flowing with a significant elevation drop) as microhydro power tends to be more reliable than solar or wind. I advise you to research this site for more options: http://www.homepower.com/

If you're serious about cheapest as the most important variable, then the sort of glib (but true) answer to this question is to observe where people who have no other choice end up living, which means a trailer in a rural area or housing in the cheapest parts of any large U.S. metro.

If you're lucky enough to have startup capital, then you can reduce your recurring expenses to practically nothing. You can find a trailer for a few grand, for example, and functional houses can be found for less than $20k in many American cities. You can probably find parks charging only a couple hundred a month for lot rent, if you go the trailer route, and property taxes will be minimal on houses in the described range, if you choose that, instead.

If you don't want to invest anything up front, you can still find housing for around $350/mo in the worst parts of the Midwestern city I live in. (But you shouldn't expect a very hands-on landlord.) You might even find weekly- or daily-rate housing that's cheaper, but I've never personally looked into that sort of thing.

Obviously, there's a reason that these areas are so inexpensive, but I've optimized only for cost.

1971genocide 4 hours ago 0 replies      
Trying to go completely off grid - building your own house - is way too much hassle.

I think of it as an optimization problem. you do not want inconvenience yourself too much with having to worry about your own home being towed !. It will add unwanted stress to your life.

The best approach as someone said - "college town with a roomate" - this is the lowest you should go since college dorms are really fancy these days and are super cheap. the extra saving you will get by going below this ( becoming essentially homeless ) is not worth the other problems associated with it ( security, winter, etc )

Money is not the end of it all. Mental wellbeing and physical wellbeing is always more important.

The other great advantage of college town is its filled with people who want to socialize. You dont want to be 50 and look back at your life as someone who saved a lot of money and lived in a car.

The cheapest way I've found to live was to buy a 4+ unit apartment building that when the 3+ other apartments are fully rented cover the cost of the mortgage, and utilities. As a result, net out of pocket each year for housing + utilities + taxes + insurance is < $0. (we turn a profit each year) For us, this means we can reinvest our earnings in our businesses and live a very comfortable middle class lifestyle. We live in a city, 3 blocks for 3 different cafes, a dozen restaurants, laundrymats, etc.

As others have mentioned, it's not too hard to build an off-the-grid small house. If you want to go with new, that's certainly an option.

Since you don't mind being a couple hours from a major city, may I suggest spending a bit more and buying used? You can buy yourself a decent one family home within that distance span. Add some solar panels and you're good to go.

You can also buy a two-family, rent out one of the units, and actually make money. Lots of options in real estate if you don't want to spend a ton.

Cheapest for whom? Many of my mates worked at mines, and therefore lived on site with all expenes paid - utilities, meals, boarding, etc. In the off time, I'm sure you could find some way to minimise many of those expenses too.

Basically, any job that requires you to relocate will minimise YOUR expenses, because your company will pay for it all. But I get the feeling that's not what you were after.

Keep the regular job. Just buy a cheap van, and rent a 24/7 parking space.

You can figure out the rest. Buy takeaways or use a gas stove for food, use a 24/7 gym for showering/toilet, and go to your job for the internet (alternatively, the library, free WiFi places, or mobile net).

That's probably the cheapest way to live without being entirely homeless (or just buying land/house).

I met a "prohobo" once. Chatted with him at a coffee shop. He was living in a squat, had 4G/LTE Internet, and a solar panel for his electronics. Rode Greyhound and/or the rails around the country (the latter, he said, is hard to get away with these days). Said he also occasionally stayed in hotels when he needed to freshen up and get a better nights reset for a while.

I think he made a living doing contract web programming, routed his money to an electronic bank account.

As an aspiring writer (read as: as someone aspiring to earn less money) I've looked into this quite a bit.

I'm married with kids (well soon to be plural anyway) so the cheap rents are out of the question, and despite their generally lower cost apartments aren't ideal. Not only is there a high risk of bedbug infestation, which will set you back significantly if you get hit, but the costs are fixed and will increase every year.

From what I've figured out reading other peoples stories, the best way is to go nearly-off-grid. If your area allows mobile homes as a primary dwelling, then this is generally the ideal. They're generally cheaply available, they're normally of a size comparable to a single bed apartment, but they also come up to 3 and 4 bedroom models with two bath.

In rural areas these often have wood stoves as the primary heating with small propane/electric ones as backup so your pipes don't freeze if you go away for a weekend.

If you're setting up in a rural area, with 5+ acres of land you can easily be self-sustaining on your own wood supply. You can set yourself up with a small wind turbine and solar rig for your electricity.

Honestly though, the majority of my work experience is from various construction fields. I want to go this way to maximize my freedom. Cutting wood and tilling soil is just exercise to me so I don't have a problem growing my own vegetables and managing my own wood lot. The only thing I've spent money on owning my house was getting my furnace replaced, and only then because I didn't have the equipment to do the piping due to the age of my house.

My dream is to build my own house from the foundation up, and if possible using lumber I harvest myself.

So really you need to quantify what your reasons for doing this are. If it's just reduce expenses for a few years to maximize your savings you're probably best going for a college town apartment. If you want to escape the city and are merely using your skills as a means to an end to fund this endeavour, then I'd say learn the skills and go rural.

There's people in Alaska and elsewhere who can make ends meet at $10 a month. You need soap? Save your stove ashes, put them in a lye barrel and you make your own lye that you can mix with fat you've saved from cooking or - if you're really into it - your own hunting, or your own animals.

When you pay for a burger at McDonalds you're paying for the guy who grew the corn, the guy who fed the cow, the guy who drove it to the slaughter house, for the slaughter, for the processing, for the guy who drives the delivery truck, for the kid who cooks and makes the burger, and for the kid who serves you - and for every owner, manager and foreman along the way.

You can pay nothing at all for a burger by growing your own corn, raising your own cows and slaughtering them, growing your own wheat, raising your own chickens and making your own bread.

So: Earn a shit ton of money, buy a $750,000 house and never do anything around the house. Gardener does the outside, maid does the inside and takes the garbage out on garbage day. You pick up most of your food from restaurants, or you can even hire a housekeeper that does the groceries and prepares an evening meal for you.

You can earn good money, buy a $250,000 house. You'll mow your own lawn, you'll do your own cleaning and cooking. You'll do small repairs around the house, etc.

Or you can do what off-grid can do. You earn nothing, you sell what you have to. You grow your own food, hunt/raise your own meats, and you make pretty much everything you want.

The question is, how far down the rabbit hole does your happiness lie?

Bitcoin's price is mostly backed by speculation, if there is bad news or a lack of 'faith' it will go down, if there is good news and faith is restored the price will go up. The organic bitcoin economy hasn't dramatically improved from my impressions, I would love to use bitcoin, personally, but there lacks ad networks (for generic audiences) or payment processors (for credit cards) which pay in it which means I can't keep every aspect of the webmaster payment cycle within bitcoins so I continue to use fiat. However, finding server providers and domain registrars who accept bitcoin is very easy.

I am assuming you want to invest with minimal additional effort. E.g. more like buying shares than flying over to the states to enrol in YC.

In that case you could pick up some books on investing in shares. This has good liquidity and although risky it is unlikely you will lose 100%. If you have a portfolio of shares in different sectors, you should be at low risk of losing lots.

If you fancy learning but still a passive investment, then maybe stamps, antiques, collectibles. You will get additional enjoyment out of it in the meantime.

Some parts of the UK I imagine you could use 5k for a house down-payment and rent it out. I have been expat for 4 years so I have no idea.

If you want to be more involved you could start some kind of business, using 50-100 pounds and your own effort to get it going, then 'invest' more money once you have a proven method. For example once you can spend 100 on advertising to make 200 gross profit, then you can scale that up using the 5000, then keep reinvesting to grow it. Easier said than done!

Or you could renovate something. Lots of people have broken things they would give away or sell cheaply - you repair and sell on for a profit. But you will need some capital and that is how you can invest your 5000.

You should probably figure out what your risk tolerance is. The more you stand to lose, the more you could win. What are you going to use this money for in 1-3 years? The traditional advice is either bonds or stocks, likely with some amount of diversification. Bonds are safer than stocks, but might not return as much. See this site [1] with a quick overview of some investment options of varying degrees of risk.

For what it's worth, it's probably not a bad idea to put it in the S&P 500[2]. In the long run, it's probably going to outperform most other investment strategies, although if the US economy tanks in the next few years you could lose a good bit of what you put in there.

I also think that allendoerfer's advice about investing in yourself can be very good, depending on your situation

Asking this question on this website, you are probably male, under 30 and working with technology. The largest amount of capital you have is probably yourself.

You should increase the returns you make on this capital. Buy some books, take some courses, invest in your health, hire someone to design your portfolio. If you get a job with 10% more payment, you effectively doubled your investment after one year, tripled id after two and so on.

Its lame, I know. Alternatively start and finish a side-project and invest the money in PPC ads.

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.

Plus, there is a nice forum to turn to for helpful discussions.

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.

We were tasked with designing a "full stack" space mission complete with a constrained budget, launch vehicle, launch locations, and a mission time line from launch to end of mission.

We designed a "space debris removal as a service" satellite system that would deorbit debris from the Iridium 33 satellite collision. It would launch from Vandenburg's Space Launch Complex 4-East which would effectively inject the spacecraft into a polar orbit. Communications would be handled by McMurdo and Svalbard stations.

The craft would rendezvous with the debris, attach itself and deorbit. Initially we were going to use the atmosphere to burn up the debris but we did not have access to the materials that the Iridium satellite was made of so we were unsure if the debris Would completely disintegrate upon reentry so we decided to deorbit it into a graveyard orbit safely away from future spacelanes.

We got some flak from the defense panel stating our attachment methods wouldn't work so well in space but overall we received good reviews. I received an A for the project.

If you plan on accepting at least $3000 a month, PayPal becomes cheaper than Stripe. If you're going to be charging tens of thousands a month or more, then a merchant account with low interchange-plus pricing (that's a fixed markup over costs -- the interchange fees charged by Visa/MasterCard) is likely your best bet.

You can use Dwolla or Balanced, or work directly with a bank, to accept donations by ACH (bank transfer) as well. They cost 10-25 cents per transaction, which is much cheaper than credit card payments.

There's quite a bit of info on them. A lot of serial entrepreneurs are celebrated, but in the US many are overlooked because they're foreigners (like the Forbes article states).

What is particularly enjoyable is serial entrepreneurs who have started non-tech companies. Some are in slow-moving industries and they've achieved huge success in them.

jghn 9 hours ago 0 replies      
Despite what many people will tell you this isn't the time to ask some carefully crafted question which will make you appear to be a better candidate. Sure, there are interviewers who believe this, but anyone who thinks that way is not someone I really want to work with anyways.

Instead, this is your opportunity to fill in any blanks you might have regarding if you actually want to grace them with your presence. IMO "no" is a perfectly valid response to that question as it is possible that any question marks you had were already discussed during the interview itself.

When dealing with more standard tech interviews (multiple panels of 1-2 people largely consisting of tech questions) I usually try to use that time to get a better sense of the day to day life working there from that interviewer's perspective. What do they do, how do they work, what don't they like, etc.

Remember that you are interviewing them as much as they are interviewing you. So you can ask any "interview" type question. What do you feel are this company's strengths compared to the competition? What are the biggest challenges or opportunities the company will face over the next 5 years? For startups, ask about profitability, revenue, growth, investment plans.

Things I asked in my successful interviews for a data scientist position with Microsoft:

* What is your favorite part of your job?

* What are the most frustrating aspects of your job?

* What will my first few weeks look like?

* Why are you interested in me as a candidate? How do you think I will contribute to the team? (I don't have a data science background.)

Good questions give the interviewer a chance to talk about themselves, let them convince you that you should work for them, and assume that you've got the job offer ("What will I be doing?" not "What would I be doing if I get the job?"). Leave questions about benefit specifics until after you get the offer, unless it's a follow-up to something they bring up.

Don't be afraid to ask follow-up questions while they're asking questions--a conversation is much better than one-sided questions.

I've built my experience mainly through exposure to native mobile. I find that the walled gardens and constraints you work within tend to help focus what you're creating. It's easier to tell when something looks or feels "wrong" when you're looking at apps that are built to match the OS's ecosystem, instead of the latest web trends.

When you work with a standardized set of UI elements on a canvas of limited size, you tend to start thinking about the interface in terms of modular actions and tasks, which you can repurpose later when scaling up to tablet or desktop web. You also have a good basis to simplify these tasks further when branching out to wearables and in-car devices.

At this point, Google, Apple, and Microsoft each have pretty defined ideologies and UI check out their guidelines:

-= 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.

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

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.

Mapbox, (REMOTE worldwide or LOCAL in SF/DC) https://www.mapbox.com/jobs/Directions Developer

Were building a routing service unlike any other. It is flexible, fast, and customizable for every use case.We are looking for people who know graph theory, efficient algorithms, and have the desire to run fast on creating a scalable API.

While having a background in routing is a bonus,were really looking for C++ coders with a deep understanding of algorithmsand data structures. Knowledge in C++11, cache effiency as well as I/O effiency are certainly a plus.

Primary focus would be extending an open source routing engine.

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.

Our first sensor network is for wireless signal [1] where we are building a global database on the coverage and performance of wireless networks (both mobile + WiFi) on a scale that has never before been possible. Our second sensor network is WeatherSignal [2], which uses the barometers, thermometers and hygrometers on smart phones to crowdsource weather data and we have already published a scientific paper [3] showing the potential of this approach.

Jon from Datanyze here. Happy new year! Here's what 2014 looked like for Datanyze:

January 2014: featured in a VentureBeat article and dubbed the "Google for sales and marketing" (http://venturebeat.com/2014/01/20/this-startup-tells-you-whe...)

June 2014: After bootstrapping the company past $1 million in annual recurring revenue (ARR) and 100 customers, we raised $2 million from Google Ventures, IDG Ventures, Mark Cuban, an AngelList syndicate, and several strategic angel investors

December 2014: We grew out of our first office and moved into a new one that's 3X bigger (and has a much better view!)

January 2015: After seeing over 500% YoY ARR growth and going from 2 to 13 employees in 2014, we will be starting off the year with 5 new team members from places like Box, Yelp and Ensighten.

We plan on spending 2015 and beyond building THE best software solution for sales and marketing teams, and more importantly an absolutely amazing company to work for and with.

Please send your resume to jon@datnayze.com and let me know if you have any questions!

Jane Street is a technology-focused proprietary trading firm. We are looking to hire great software developers with an interest in functional programming. OCaml, a statically typed functional programming with similarities to Haskell, Erlang, F# and SML, is our language of choice. Weve got the largest team of OCaml developers in any industrial setting, and probably the worlds largest OCaml codebase. We use OCaml for running our entire business, supporting everything from research to systems administration to trading systems.

There is a focus on education, and people learn about software and trading, both through formal classes and on the job. 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 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

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.

Are you UI/UX guru? Interested in Indian market?

Hi,I have a few simple web-service ideas for Indian market. Most of these ideas are lifestyle businesses, with the eventual goal of making content websites that capture long tail google searches specific to Indian context. Some of the ideas I am working on are:

I am looking for someone who would like to implement these ideas along with me. You should have the following skills:

Electronifie

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?

Come join us.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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...

If you have any questions, feel free to get in contact with me (info in my profile), or you can apply directly at jobs@hitmeister.de.

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.

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.

We have been around for over 5 years now however it still feels a lot like a start-up (and in many ways it is).From a technical point of view, there's a big roadmap of exciting and challenging work ahead of us.

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.

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.

Interested? Send an email to contact@indico.io.

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!

- 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!

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

I made a electronic voting system. Nothing too fancy, it was 85% documentation and 15% code (because very little of the final grade was about code anyway).

It was an attempt at reproducing proctors into an electronic system. Namely interested parties could sign up to receive the votes in real-time. It had two kinds of distinct databases/receivers (vote tallies, and a list of people who had voted).

The two databases were designed so that they were auditable but went to pains so the two couldn't be merged later trivially. So discovering who you voted for was non-trivial. This was done in part by delivering the votes in real time (no caching) and delivering the people who voted in big dumps and randomising them continuously (so that the order they voted wasn't deterministic). The voter database didn't even store which terminal they used, only which location (since that is needed to check it against the paper list later).

Essentially it was four pieces of software: A voting station, a vote receiver/database, and a voter receiver/database, and a "vote designer" which just set up the voting station's config (which was XML).

It was originally meant to have a piece of software so that people could register themselves to become receivers/proctors but it was never implemented and I had more than enough to talk about with the design and what was implemented (and it also left me something to talk about in my areas of improvement section).

After I graduated it was never touched again and I don't even know if I still have the code...

I'll go first. I made a prototype/proof of concept tool that could detect if multiple authors had contributed to a project dissertation that should have been written by a single author. I got the idea when I met a final year student who was far off from finishing his project with just a few days to go. He explained to me that someone else (a friend) was writing about four chapters of his dissertation for him.

Even if lecturers read and realised the obvious stylistic differences between the chapters written by the student and those written by his friend, a simple "gut feeling" would not suffice as proof to accuse said student of plagiarism. Thus I built a tool that would statistically analyse the writing styles of the students and spit out a probability/certainty report that said which chapters were almost certainly written by someone else.

It worked at a very basic level for long form texts. I never ended up making it an actual product simply because I've lacked the time and determination to collect and organise (especially organise) the material required to train a system into being a real usable product. I had big dreams for it, including usage in forensics and courts of law (answer to the question of was the witness/accused/victim forced to write the letter? Did the witness/accused/victim actually write it him/herself.. etc).. Ah well. Someday maybe.

My was composed by a dissertation and a project. I went extra mile, it wasn't required.In my dissertation I "leisurely" verified that the general problems of collaborative filtering did appear also in a specific music dataset (that for the sake of secrecy I'm not going to reveal,but you can consider a music dataset as big as the one available in iTunes Store 5 years ago). My point was, if you like A and B, and another user like A,B,C, is not necessary true that you have to like or be exposed to C as well.

Later on I decided to try out and implement a better solution. In short it was on paper a behavior driven solution for matching preferences, with an underlaying layer of audio analysis and a collaborative fallback. If I look back at it, honestly talking, the implementation was a mess and probably biased towards the dataset.

I did a Master in ML + AI applied to Multimedia with a focus on audio signals. I went trough the same idea, this time with a more scientific approach. Graduated. Patented part of the algorithm, sold to a company, hired by the same company, integrated in their system, and moved on :)

In other words, pick something that you are passionate about, it maybe turn into a shortcut into the work world and give you a starting position much higher than any other grads.

Bootstrap, charge money from the beginning instead of trying to get funding for a promising idea that might (or might not) bring money in some point in the future.

How to do that is beyond the scope of this answer but there are plenty of blogs that talk about bootstrapping small businesses, like https://unicornfree.com/ and https://www.google.com/search?q=bootstrapping%20business%20b... and resources like videos from MicroConf http://vimeo.com/user12790628

While the terms you describe are bad and you probably shouldn't take them (bootstrap instead), don't wallow in self-pity because you think U.S. entrepreneurs have it so much better.

They don't.

The number of companies funded by VCs are tiny. It's almost like winning a lottery. Don't build on the assumption that you'll win a lottery as well. The motto of Y Combinator is "Make something people want". If you do that and charge for it, you won't need the funding.

Funding helps but given that you're not in a place where good funding is available, do what every other business in your country does and do without it.

I think I know which accelerator you are talking about. Ecosystem in Turkey looks very promising from outside but when you start digging you hear stories such as this.

I know that one of those so called mentors asked %8 of shares from startups which wanted to pitch infront of a regular event held every year in Turkey. This is absurd as there is no guarantee and infact very low chances of investment.

We've been accepted to two of accelerators in Turkey and attended one of them. The one we didn't attend was an internationally known accelerator and they asked us to be in their office 9 - 6 everyday for 3 months and forced us to stay inside and build our product against all things learned from Lean Startup methodology. They even suggested that we could send interns to meetings that I have pre-organized with CXOs of biggest insurance companies. We didn't sign the deal, we didn't attend the program.

Ask HN: What are specific tangible benefits of learning Haskell?

yomritoyj 2 days 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...

I too found learning Haskell difficult, because there is, or so it seems, quite a big hurdle to get over at the start.

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.

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.

Here is a tangible benefit of learning Haskell which people agree on almost universally: learning Haskell will make you a better programmer even in other programming languages.

You will want to code using more elegant, more composeable and succinct, methods. You will want to break things down into small, provably correct units, and then combine them into larger solutions which take advantage of the proven correctness at the lower levels.

You will want to lean heavily on the type system and encode as many of your program constraints in there as possible, leaving your unit tests free to only deal with the logic of your code.

Even if you never write a piece of Haskell code again, you will find over time that more and more ideas from Haskell and similar languages are bleeding through into the languages you use. C++? Closures, optionals. C#? LINQ (monads). Obj-C? On the path to retirement, replaced with Swift. Java? Lambdas, optionals. Clojure? Typed Clojure. Scala? Scalaz. In fact, Swift? Swiftz. JavaScript? People are building entire functional languages (and reactive frameworks) on top of JS.

These things aren't happening by accident. Haskell is a fertile proving ground for the future of programming.

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.

it depends, for some critical line of code you can't make mistakes (for example if you are writing something involved with security , or in some worse case if you are programming an airplane consolle). So my point is: you can be drunk while coding but you have to be 100% sober while planning your tests for that code. Accordingly to a lot of studies alchool (also drugs) helps our brain to "think different" so while you are drunk you could find a solution for a problem you were stuck in just because while you are drunk your brain discovers different patterns. However i don't have much experience about this ... i've coded something while i was mildly drunk and i saw no difference.

Get a used iMac. (possibly 27inches).

For IOS dev you are looking to:- fast enough processor(s) for the compile phase (can take ages)- a decent graphic card/ram for getting your design tool of choice to work smooth (Photoshop is a good choice but not mandatory)- a screen as big as possible. At least for me when programming something graphic I like to have code on one side and final result on another.

If you don't have "laptop" as a mandatory feature, desktop solutions usually offer more "brutal" performances at the same price point. Imac is a bit of crossover giving the hardware involved is almost the same used in laptops.

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.

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.

I don't know of such a succinct manual with practical advise (as opposed to they air "you can do it"). I wish someone wrote one actually.

First, congratulations!

I would demystify the process of creation. Show them your wireframes, your pencil sketches, talk about the business v. creative push and pull. Make it interactive - break them into groups of 2-3 each for 5 min and show them Notch's time-lapse in the background on projector while you have them work on exercises in ideation - what would their game be? what would the levels, characters, and challenges be. They don't have to present - just get them comfortable with the first step of creation - putting it on 'scratch' paper.

If you have time, deconstruct Flappy Bird. The scrolling left to right background v. making the bird move. How the object detection is greatly simplified when you have only one coordinate to detect (y-bird and y-pipeTop/y-pipeBottom). How adding gravity to the bird (downward velocity) allows you to fly the bird.

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.

Please do mention open source, the practical and idealistic aspects of it. It's fairly unusual in the world today and resonates with many non technical people.
