From running two small ecommerce companies I think I've learned enough about MVP, shipping, inventory management, etc.

From 25 years as a software engineer I've learned about building tools to automate steps.

I'd pick some "hard to find / expensive niche (e.g. Greene and Greene, Art Nouveau, etc.), but offer repeatable designs, not do custom work. That would allow for lots of jigs, fixtures, using cheap machines in duplicate to eliminate setup times, etc.

...and then after growing sales and shaking the bugs out of the production, I'd hire assistants to keep cranking stuff out.

Eventually I'd allow customers to start turbing a few "knobs" on products, via a website tool (this isn't too much falling back into software, is it?), which results in customized cut lists being kicked out for my assistants. Mass customization.

I would be a modern day philosopher/thinker (like Taleb, Dawkins, Harris). I would start with the classics and read everything, learn ancient Greek, Aramaic, as well as Italian, French and German (maybe Russian also, who knows)

I would study the first proof in mathematics all the way up through modern probability theory.

I would throw away my cell phone and do all of this work from a nice modern loft in the Trastevere neighborhood of Rome - starting every morning with an espresso, and ending it with good food and two bottles of Red French or Italian wine.

Back to work ..

It's interesting that the majority of these answers are professions that pay nowhere near what a software developer's salary would be.

If the question were, "What other job would you like to do, if it paid at least as much as software development?" I could probably come up with some creative answers.

But even though I'm not particularly driven by money, given that I have a family to support, mortgage to pay, etc., I probably could not take a job right now that would significantly reduce my income.

With that constraint in mind, I suppose I would say I would return to my first career (journalism) and become an editor again. This would involve a significant drop in salary. So I would have to ramp up the time I devote to my second job. I'm an author of nonfiction books, which has been mostly a side project, but a relatively lucrative one. If I could bang out a book a year, on top of working full time as an editor, I could probably keep our household finances afloat.

Would like to be a back country forest ranger. Someone who does work out in the remote woods. Not one of the rangers that has to deep with the public. The problem like most of us have is that our position and tenure in IT has lead to salaries that make such a change (and reduction in pay) almost impossible. Add kids, etc. and it gets set permanently in the dream category.

I know the logical response to this statement is: Reduce your needs and the reduced pay won't be an issue. While true, I don't think I am that flexible sadly.

I'd be an economics teacher. I'd love to teach High School and/or College economics. Since this is my own fantasy land, I'd be able to set my own curriculum.

 1. Why do we work? (Jobs, Businesses, and the individual economy) 2. What is wealth, and how do I get it? (Saving, investment, real estate) 3. Is it supposed to be like this? (Capitalism, Government, modern political economy) 4. Systems Design (If you want to change the system, how should it work? How do we measure things that aren't money? Love, time, attention?)
I wish I'd had an education like this earlier in life.

I have a few options/dreams.

1. Become a musician. I love all kinds of music and drums/percussion in particular. On the side, I'm working my way to being able to play drums+timbales for Cuban timba music. I've only been doing this for about a year and think I have a talent for it.

2. Go into criminology and/or politics. Crime is one of the biggest problems in Venezuela, with murder and kidnappings at all time highs, affecting me personally and frankly every Venezuelan. I'd heavily use technology to help me. If I can play a significant role in eradicating that problem, I'd be very proud of my life.

3. Open up a bar/restaurant. I love hosting people and providing an environment for people to have fun. Live music and a dance floor would be a must, but a nice chill lounge area should be available too. Again, I'd like to use technology, e.g. having automated beer taps that you can open with your RFID wristband or code and get automatically charged, and having something similar for standard mixed drinks (of course, I'd still keep bartenders for specialty cocktails).

I guess there are more, but these will suffice for now :)

1. Write children's books - because I love reading good books to my children, and if successful, the revenue scales and they have great recurring revenue potential (much better than adult books, I think).

2. Try to bring software development education to underprivileged kids in some way that eventually scales and has real career potential. There is part of me that feels this has potential, because the opportunity for self-development is so high, and the cash costs of the tools low. There is part of me that worries it is futile, because I suspect software development jobs actually require more deep and diverse basic knowledge of math and reading than I could hope for in underprivileged environments.

When the tech world moved away from me (doing mainly embedded C for the last thirty years might not have been the best idea for my career), I became an aged carer for my disabled mum. I learned a lot about cleaning, gardening and adding subtitles to films as she is going deaf. I also learned a lot about editing spoken word audio files for pacing, volume and noise reduction as she wrote a memoir then recorded an audio version.

In the future, I could be an aged carer as I really like looking after people, although it doesn't pay well and there can be a lot of poo to deal with. On the other hand, one of my former managers has been working at Google for about ten years and is quite enthusiastic about my working with him there. Unfortunately, they are in California and I am in Melbourne so I'd have to move.

There are two possible interpretations of this question actually:

1. What would you do if you were not worried about finances and could simply do what you most loved for a living?

2. Given your financial and career needs/desires, what would be more rewarding than your developer job?

I'd answer these two questions totally differently, and I suspect many in this thread would as well.

I moved to product marketing. I have the benefit of working for a company that makes a product for ops engineers which was my previous role as well as exposure to marketing concepts from working at a marketing tech company previously. I understand the product audience in ways that traditional marketers do not and I understand our marketers in ways that most engineers do not.

It's fun and it's a nice change of pace. I've retained some engineering responsibilities. So what might be a passion project for someone on an engineering team, I develop something and then start writing blog content to help educate our audience around the subject. Our product has the ability to fire a JSON doc at an endpoint which gives you the ability to integrate us with other systems... To many ops engineers can't write a web service to bridge us with that other system. So, I'll write a small service and then after it's up on GitHub I'll write a tutorial and walkthrough of the service. If you just download what I wrote and run it, awesome. I've helped solve a customer issue. If you take my blog post and learn to write your own service, that's even better!

I did stop being a developer for a year and a half in order to work for a video game publisher as a producer. I really enjoyed it, worked on five games (four of which were released on Nintendo, Microsoft, or Sony consoles), got to go on fun business trips to game conferences, and got to meet some important people in the industry, but I got nervous not programming for that long because I thought my skills were atrophying due to lack of use.

Nowadays if I were to do it again, I'd probably go into board game design or publishing. I'm a bit more in tune with the board game industry than the video game industry nowadays. I'm actually actively working on several board game designs and trying to get my first game signed. Hopefully one or two of them will be a hit and I can afford to stop working a 9-5, maybe just do some freelance development part time on the side.

I would consider going back into video game publishing too, though.

The one that fits my current lifestyle: carpentry. I love woodworking but am not particularly practiced at it. Opening up a garage full of tools and building real tangible things with my hands that still exist when the lights go off has huge appeal.

The one that doesn't quite fit my lifestyle (married, love it that way, spouse has a stable job with a set location, thinking about kids): travel journalist. My wife and I have both spent a significant portion of time living and working in semi rural areas of underdeveloped countries. I'd do it again in a heartbeat, and would love to get it all down on paper. But that really doesn't fit in with giving kiddos access to education, so maybe in thirty years!

Not in any particular order...And, either one or some combination of the following:

* Dance music DJ or music maker - I love me some house music. (Notice I said "music maker" - i.e. a maker of tracks/songs, and not "musician"...i just don't have the formal training to play an actual instrument...however, if time travel existed, then yes a musician).

* Indie film maker / director / screenwriter / or even actor/performer.

* Custom motorcycle maker. Although custom choppers are fine and all, I'd lean towards custom made naked or cafe racer style motorbikes.

* Own/run my own little cafe - with a few small food offerings - showcasing small, local bands, and maybe even a teen dance night. (There was a local dance club that had a teen night where I grew up, and I always thought it was such a cool idea.)

I've worked professionally as both a musician and a technologist since my teens, I'm 40 now. I used to want to be a musician, but I realized that, like technology, there's really a zillion different kinds of careers you can have as a musician, and I was really only interested in a few of those.

Some people love music so much that they are happy making their living any way they can involving music, including teaching, playing weddings, and other functions. I've done a lot of this, and ultimately am not happy doing it.

Even though I loved touring as a musician, most of my friends that made their living touring have retired from it and gone on to do something else, as the road life makes it pretty difficult to have a "normal" family life.

I've often asked myself what I'd want to do if I weren't a technologist, and I always come back to doing something with my hands.

A USATF certified coach, probably focusing on distance running with one-on-one training for adults. There are apps with algorithms that create personalized training programs for things like marathons and 1/2s but they aren't there yet. Plus, nothing is like in person human interaction for on the fly adjustments to training and for motivation.



Somehow get into climate science. I almost went to school for meteorology in the early 00s but on a tour of a college atmospheric sciences department when I was 17 an old professor told me it was a hard career to get into with very limited job prospects. :(

I'd be an industrial designer. I'm a product designer (software), but I have a deep appreciation for simple, beautiful things. I have no experience with CAD software, but given the time, it's definitely something I'd like to explore.

Alternatively, I'd like to be a product reviewer and write about products. This may be more attainable as I was a journalist in college and still blog occasionally.

All that said, I love designing software. Don't see myself leaving the industry anytime soon.

I would go into finance, maybe as a CFA or some sort of investment/financial analyst. If I could go back in time and restructure my career aspirations as a teenager, I would pursue a career as a medical doctor (possibly specializing in cardiology or clinical pathology).

I don't know if this is normal, but I feel burnt out after working 6 years in the tech industry. So much so, that in my spare time I occupy myself with hobbies completely unrelated to software engineering. I enjoy reading books about finance and medicine, and have also grown an appreciation for cinema/film-making.

My side projects have definitely suffered as a result, because often times I find myself preferring to read The Economist instead.

Something where I can immerse myself into a project for at least a few weeks without needing regular state-exchange with others. I thought programming was the thing, but does seem to be moving in a rather collectivist direction right now.

Farming and winemaking both appeal due to the feeling that you're working on something that will come to fruition months or years into the future. Tax arrangements make small-scale winemaking in the UK somewhat unattractive (beer and especially cider get better deals), but I do ponder given it a go sometimes.

I mostly left tech last April to help run a performance theater and a speakeasy. I do everything from lighting/wiring, ticketing, marketing, bar tending, helping as a stagehand, running spotlights, etc. I get to hang out with magicians, circus performers, burlesque dancers, and all sorts of interesting people with interesting stories. It's been a lot of fun and fulfilling in a way, especially since I've never had a public-facing job before. Definitely uncomfortable the first time you sell concessions or deal with upset parents due to someone else's failure to include mature content warning on event descriptions. Overall it's been an amazing experience.

But also I make peanuts compared to what I used to and I'm basically living on savings, so I'll probably end up going back to tech eventually. My best friend with less development skills than me just got a job for over $200k, so I can't help but feeling I've fallen off the track rather than made a positive life change.

Teach, I suppose: high school history or English, or maybe with some brush-up, math.

(Over the years, I have earned money as busboy, stock clerk, landscape worker, driver, proofreader, copy editor, tech support worker, and developer. At this point, I don't know that my back is up to some of the manual labor, and I think that I'm too much of a wool-gatherer to be a good commercial driver. I wasn't a bad editor, but it doesn't pay well: people know when their computer systems don't work, but don't know or don't care when their texts are unreadable...)

I would work in agriculture, producing food and managing honeybees (currently a hobby). I think we desperately need more small, local, sustainable farming practices which inevitably will require more individuals actually engaged with food production. I would focus my time left to advancing this practice and writing about it.

My second choice would be as a researcher in a field of biology. As many others have said, the interest in tech lends to a natural interest in how humans and other life forms work, and I'd like to explore this more. The time for this has probably passed me by, sadly.

I already did after 25 years in development. I'm tempted to do a side-project or startup now after a few years away. If I was to return to tech I'd be very focused on creating real benefit and progress (think perhaps environmental, climate change, medical or learning etc), rather than a shiner bauble or "disrupting" something that really shouldn't be (internet connected kettles? Making everything a consumer replaceable).

My driver was the rant that easily followed on from the above. :) Basically wanting something more substantive, less ephemeral, more tactile. I ended up in restoration. I'm enjoying it hugely and the things I'm doing will have life of many decades, perhaps sometimes centuries.

The surprise was, even after 3 years, discovering there's still more satisfaction in physical tiredness and manual activity at the end of the day than just mental. I'd already experienced this in car restoration and various projects but assumed much was from hobby and novelty interest.

I'm not a developer (I'm a physicist), but someday I'd like to go into medical research. I like the idea of coming up with things that directly help suffering people. I hope that the problem solving skills I've acquired would prove useful. Of course, I'd need to go back to school for a few years to get up to speed first.

Unfortunately, I have too much to do still in the applied physics world. It takes too damn long to commercialize inventions. I'd love to move on to the next new thing, but there is no one you can just hand off an invention to; if you want to see it deployed and profitable it seems you have to carry it all the way yourself.

I am tempted to partially abandon my career in cloud computing to start a business that... well, has the aim to build better (new) cities.

I wouldn't start with a city, though (disclaimer: I'm not a multi-billionaire), but probably with the individual building. I want to dramatically change the "footprint" of the building in terms of : ecology/sustainability, cost, value for the people investing in the real estate property.

If that's successful, I'd like to then up the target to changing whole "new" cities.

I fully appreciate how crazy and over-ambitious this might sound. Curious to hear any feedback or comment/questions about it.

All the carpentry-as-an-alternate-career comments here reminded me of something Fred Brooks wrote in his "The Mythical Man-Month" -- how he described programming, reminds me of carpentry (note: it's a quote from the book all the way from here):

Why is programming fun? What delights may its practitioner expect as his reward?

First is the sheer joy of making things. As the child delights in his mud pie, so the adult enjoys building things, especially things of his own design. I think this delight must be an image of God's delight in making things, a delight shown in the distinctness and newness of each leaf and each snowflake.

Second is the pleasure of making things that are useful to other people. Deep within, we want others to use our work and to find it helpful. In this respect the programming system is not essentially different from the child's first clay pencil holder "for Daddy's office."

Third is the fascination of fashioning complex puzzle-like objects of interlocking moving parts and watching them work in subtle cycles, playing out the consequences of principles built in from the beginning. The programmed computer has all the fascination of the pinball machine or the jukebox mechanism, carried to the ultimate.

Fourth is the joy of always learning, which springs from the nonrepeating nature of the task. In one way or another the problem is ever new, and its solver learns something: sometimes practical, sometimes theoretical, and sometimes both.

Finally, there is the delight of working in such a tractable medium. The programmer, like the poet, works only slightly removed from pure thought-stuff. He builds his castles in the air, from air, creating by exertion of the imagination. Few media of creation are so flexible, so easy to polish and rework, so readily capable of realizing grand conceptual structures. (...)

Yet the program construct, unlike the poet's words, is real in the sense that it moves and works, producing visible outputs separately from the construct itself. It prints results, draws pictures, produces sounds, moves arms. The magic of myth and legend has come true in our time. One types the correct incantation on a keyboard, and a display screen comes to life, showing things that never were nor could be.

Programming then is fun because it gratifies creative longings built deep within us and delights sensibilities we have in common with all men.

You get outdoors, you see awesome views, you can go it solo or with friends, and if you use your brain a little bit, you can make some serious cash in a short period of time. There are tons of BLM lands with abandoned claims just waiting for someone to re-register the claim and open it back up, or lands adjacent to that claim which were never touched and possibly have tons of material the other claim couldn't get to/missed during survey.

Recreational vehicle repair. Sales are way up since the industry almost died after 2007/2008, and the manufacturers are producing crap quality in order to satisfy sales demand. It's not uncommon for someone to spend $400k on a new RV and have to take their new purchase back for a months worth of rework -- only to find out there's no service openings for 5 months.

What's stopping me is the up-front capital requirements to lease a building, hire technicians, and buy the tools & equipment needed (you can't just use an ordinary car lift on a 50,000 pound bus).

Focused, neighborhood context-sensitive and environmentally conscious real estate development. The goal would be to replace the typical boring stick-built midrise, minimal setback, blank sided commercial and residential you see being built in most cities. With a stated goal of providing space for existing businesses being displaced by the new development as well as public spaces when possible.

Yeah, my returns wouldn't necessarily be as high, but at least it would improve the neighborhood without unduly displacing the things that made the neighborhood desirable in the first place. Or being a generic, overpriced pile of blank like most modern pop-up construction.

I would love to be a performing artist. I can play various instruments, and am recently really loving playing Piano. Would love it if solo pianists could practice to virtuoso level and make a decent living, but sadly, they cannot. Unless you have the magical combination of proper connections, prestigious music school credentials, timing, and luck, you cannot hope to make the kind of salary I am making programming. My sister, a Soprano who went to NYU taught me this early on.

Funny story, her school call her a couple weeks back and I happened to be in the room with her, and you could tell it was some undergraduate performing some capstone research project, and he asked her "If you could tell students now one thing, what would you tell them?" to which she cynically replied, "Don't waste your time if you hope to make a living." and "Only .05% of you will go on to have successful music careers." Brutal.

Since early in college, my 2nd choice has always been psychology -- so much that I went back to school to finish up a BA in Psychology. I would focus on either cognitive or industrial/organizational psychology. With cognitive, I'd focus on motivation. With two children, I'm always wondering what motivates them to do the things they do. In I/O, I'm looking at workplace optimization and comfort -- mostly comfort.

Sitting and thinking about this for just a moment...is unnerving. I'm not convinced I could "move away from the tech world" for too long. My brain is wired to tinker and build in the digital realm, my physique is accustomed to stationary existence, I've allowed tech to build a house of cards within myself which props up my life. It gives my day structure and when I take breaks (2-3 days here and there), i'm often at a loss for what to do with my time. It takes a good week for me to find my pre-tech self, something I haven't done in 6-8 months.

If I were to quit today, I would spend time unschooling my child. Maybe along the way I could rediscover some important lessons about how to live a more physically present life.

Or consulting. I think I'd pick up interesting skills there. I might still follow this path by getting my MBA.

My biggest frustration is that professionally it's very easy to top out in tech. I'm still quite young and already make more than most developers. Really the only way to significantly level up professionally is to take on more risk (by founding a company).

But that's a very difficult market to break into, and the types of jobs that actually make good money either aren't usually the type of music I'd really want to play, and / or are a market that I'm too old to enter, and / or are well beyond my current skillset. It's a good hobby to pass the time with though.

I'd design and build concrete shell homes with basalt reinforcement bars and transverse light-transmitting fibers, for the rural and suburban markets, and factory-manufactured home modules that are rack-mounted and transportable via intermodal shipping containers and forklifts, for the urban market.

One of the disappointing things I have learned is that many municipalities limit the visible height of residential buildings from the average grade level to its highest point to only 30 or 40 feet. That means, in combination with the depth of the frost-heave line, that spherical shells are not possible for a family-sized home, and the only feasible tornado-resistant shapes would be severely-flattened ellipsoids and toruses. I had a hypothesis that I really wanted to test regarding the humidity problems experienced with geodesic dome homes, but that one zoning issue makes testing it pretty much impossible.

I have been pretty disappointed with all of the stick-built homes I have ever lived in, with regard to maintenance and infrastructure issues. In short, I'm sick of paying through the nose for cheap, slipshod crap. If I'm going to pay through the nose anyway, I'd rather get something that could survive a nuclear strike on the nearest strategic asset, where I would never have to use a plunger in any toilet because the architect never talked to a master plumber, and never need to tack up visible wires because the existing wiring plan stinks, and also never have to carry the laundry up and down two flights of stairs because no one bothered to minimize the distance between that particular appliance and all the bedroom closets.

I just want to rebel against the existing market conditions in housing. Realistically, I would likely be an abysmal failure in that sector, and would have to return to software development--with my tail between my legs--in less than 5 years. But I'd also get a kickass house out of it, which would slowly reveal its agonizingly severe problems over the following 10 years, which would have bankrupted my company anyway, had it succeeded. Then I'd write a book about my experience, which would sell 30 copies. I'd become a bitter old geezer, and none of my co-workers would talk to me unless they had a question about our crufty, legacy C++21 module that everyone else is afraid to touch. My best friend would be a red Swingline stapler. I would be buried with it. Then concrete shell homes would sweep the nation in a flurry of unexpected popularity. I would get frequent reports about it in "The Special Hell for People Who Don't Really Deserve It, But We Torment Them Anyway, Just for Fun", which would be effectively indistinguishable from my pre-demise existence as a software professional, except Special Hell gets 3.5 weeks of PTO, and Columbus Day off, because even pure evil has limits.~

kickscondor 2 hours ago 1 reply      
I guess I should answer this one. I quit computer programming to teach public elementary school during the summer of 2015. I had been planning my exit for five to maybe ten years ago. The pay is nowhere near what one can make as a programmer - but I didn't really need all that money anyway. I teach a technology class - every kid in the school takes it for an hour - some of it involves programming, some of it is letting the kids explore tools like Twine, some of it is programming my own apps for the class.

For me - I can't see myself going back to an office. To teach kids is such an antidote to the self-loathing and looming pointlessness that I felt as a programmer. I'm not saying those feelings apply to any of you or to the profession as a whole - I just needed people in my life. And I guess I was tired of feeling like other people were using me for their projects - I want to use me for my projects.

I'm still in a bit of transition - do I continue experimenting in the classroom and attempt to release the apps I develop there? Or do I stay focused on teaching and improving my community? I think I'm set on the latter - I'm happier when I'm not chasing some impossible dream. But who knows - one still has ambitions that are impossible to repress anyway. Either way - it's great to have this kind of choice.

I became a full time father and results have been stellar. My boy is now one year old and turns out to be very clever... And very strong. He could crawl at seven months and started to learn how to walk at 11 months. His first word was 'hunger' (in Dutch, it sounds virtually the same) at two months, maybe it was imaginative but he was happy to eat after we we heard him say it, haha. Now he can also say 'mama' and 'papa', but it appears that he is deferring the rest of his vocal development until later because he can manage fine by using the Dutch equivalent words for 'that' ('die', sounds like 'thee') and 'food' ('eten', sounds like 'aitan').

His mother is happy that she can focus on her career while leaving him in my care at home, although it's harder than she imagined because she does miss us dearly while away from home and is counting the hours at work... probably because we're two very cool froods (wink). After the infamous initial "post-natal bumpy ride" our relationship is back where it used to be - at 100%.

I'm the happiest man ever and wouldn't want it any other way.

Well, personally, I tried to escape by going and getting a Master's and a PhD. Unfortunately for me, I didn't bother to really LOOK at academia as a career path, so when I finished and started looking into it ... well, it's pretty crap, being an academic, no matter which country you're considering. Also, academia only considers the work you've done post-PhD as being of any worth, so I'd be competing with kids who'd gone straight through, rather than those who'd spent 20 years in industry first.

I've considered a wide variety of things, but always come back to this: if I keep on saving at my current rate, I can not have to make any profit whatsoever, whereas if I start out now with something (a bakery, say), then I'll need to keep on making a profit, so that I can retire some day. I've got another 10-15 years in software and then I'm done and can do whatever. Check out http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/2012/01/13/the-shockingly-sim... to figure out where you land on that scale.

I took two breaks from tech. One was for grad school, which I dropped out of after 3 semesters. Like some others in the thread I found academia to be pretty bad. You're paid shit and treated like a peon. The work was actually interesting, but I knew I could just go back to private industry and make 5-10x as much doing the same type of work.

I took a break from "everything" at one point and became a nightlife photographer in a large urban area. It didn't pay much. It mostly involved drinking and doing drugs, on someone else's dime, until the early morning. It was a great time for the most part, and I met lots of interesting people. After about 6 months I got tired of it and went back to tech. Note: having a professional camera in a club is a great way to meet women.

I'm considering leaving tech again, or at least ending my engineering career. I no longer find it personally enjoyable to build systems. Building systems that other people want, instead of ones I'd want to build, has jaded me. I've worked at several companies, large and small, over the years. And I've found that as a tech shop matures, that exciting feeling of creating a product dulls. It dulls to the point of becoming anesthetic. The longer you stay, the worse it becomes. I wouldn't mind staying in the tech field. I just don't want to spend all day in front of a monitor anymore.

The first time I quit, I was 23. Took everything I had and went to travel across the world. When I ran out of money, I cam back and did some odd jobs, ran a small ebay business, and played poker, while trying to figure out what I wanted to do. Eventually, that stopped being realistic, so I moved to a bigger city and got a job.

After about two years of that, got fed up, and quit again, and went to grad school to get a PhD. After two years of that, I realized I was working 2-3 times as much for about a tenth of the pay I could be getting. I finished my masters, bailed from the PhD, and got a job back in tech.

My plan now is to use this time to make as much and learn as much as possible, and eventually pivot into something else at some point in the future, while always having the ability to fall back into tech if need be.

I taught English in Korea for a year. I absolutely hated it. I was teaching mostly elementary-school. I never got the hang of creating order in the classroom or keeping kids interested. Every second was just torture.

In retrospect though I'm glad to have done it. Glad I stuck through the contract, though sometimes I wonder if it'd have been better for the kids if I had bailed and let someone more qualified come in my place.

The one nice thing about it is when you're done for the day, you're done. (At least if you're not a very good teacher). With software you're always thinking about it even if you're not actively working on it (or at least I am), it just invades your whole life. So it was great having nights and weekends completely free to do whatever you want.

The one adult class I had was fun. But you've got to get lucky to get a position teaching only adult classes, and the hours can be worse.

All that said, I'm back in software now.

I quit my career for 4.5 years while I did other things that I wanted to do like teaching, writing, and traveling. It was definitely worthwhile and I'm grateful I was able to do it, but the same things that I disliked about my experience in the IT industry end up showing up in other jobs and things I did. I came back to IT with a different perspective and I got a lot better at making my job what I want it to be.

If you're going to quit, I think it's better to have clear goals and ideas of what you are going to do next and why you want do to those things. The act of quitting will give you immediate satisfaction, but long-term finding that thing that gets you up every single morning is more rewarding.

I haven't quit altogether, but I have left my job every 18 months or so to take a few months off. Spent 3 months in Europe this past time and now just starting up a new job search. When working I save more than enough money to cover the cost of the months without work.

So far it's provided a very relaxing pace of life giving me a nice break from the office grind every time I start to get fed up with it.

I figure sooner or later it will get hard to find jobs with a work history like that, but we'll see how this round goes.

After about 20 years of computer stuff, I've found a new interest - sailing. I spent most of the money gained from computer stuff on a boat, learnt how to repair it and sail it (repairing being the far more extensive subject), and am about to set off for a long trip. While doing this I've been using my newly gained skills and combined with my existing skills (computers, networks, electronics) did some work in the marine sector (mostly for the odd dinner, some of it paid) - turns out boats are full of special purpose computers and most of the "specialists" fixing them are uhm, not the best. My skills found quick appreciation. Might continue down that road once I run out of money.

I guess my advice is to do a bunch of things and see what you enjoy, new opportunities will happen as you do. Having an IT background is helpful almost anywhere, and more valued outside of core IT areas.

Quit development, became a voice actor. A lot like a freelance developer or designer is a hustle, but damn do I love being behind a mic. If you need a voice for your explainer I'm still pretty comfortable with tech lingo terms, although I could not tell you what a tensor is!

I bailed out of the industry during the dot-com crash -- actually, almost exactly the night before! -- and eventually became a climbing instructor and indoor climbing center manager.

I ended up in debt but to this day it's still the best job I ever had and despite all the work I've had to put into getting my life back on track financially, I'm still glad I did it.

I came back to IT about 10 years ago, but now I have a whole pile of non-IT skills and interests that I can dive into whenever I need a break, so burnout is much less of a problem overall. Working as a climbing instructor and gym manager also helped me learn how to talk to people and have a little bit of fun now and again.

I would think long and hard about leaving an industry you're established into, before doing it. I left in 2008 because, after two mergers, I had run out of steam and felt I wasn't wanted. I lost money because the crash caused the options I had to be worth less than I had hoped, but I attempted to make a living making wood-fired pots. I'd been making pots for ages, but they weren't good enough, and I didn't know how to build a business. I've been fortunate to have had a friend who employed me twice, but I now find myself living on dwindling savings but nine years out of date.

I would suggest that if you are running out of passion, then find an unrelated but expensive hobby, or find something related to IT that you can get passionate about.

And if you're certain you want to leave, start planning now.

I sold real estate for a few years. I enjoyed the analytic parts of the job (valuations and contract negotiation), though my patience would wear a little thin on the showings. It didn't take long to realize that I needed to get someone else to do that part.

After the market went down the crapper, I went back to software and haven't looked back.

Why real estate in the first place? Could not stand the passive-aggressive backbiters encountered in most office environments. At least with real estate negotiations, the hostility was overt and in-your-face.

I feel the same way you feel. Growing up I was absolutely fascinated with computers and knew I wanted to be a computer scientist since the age of 12 or 13. Now that I'm in the industry (and not in academia like I initially thought I wanted) the magic is gone and I want to get out, hopefully within the next 5 years or so. It's not that I dislike programming, in fact I still love it, but now that I'm solving other peoples' problems instead of working on my own pet projects it's just not the same.

As far as what I'd do afterwards? I'm kind of at a loss. I've had ideas that range from opening a bar to buying a plot of land and farming it, but they all seem so crazy and out of reach.

Bought a restaurant with family in hopes of staving off then-impending tech burnout - nothing fancy, so it's been a fun and mildly profitable side project. Was just about to hop on the med school path but I got pregnant at the worst time. Thinking I'll take a year to parent and maybe do some contracting while thinking about what to do for the future. Tech definitely pays well but I lost much of my interest in the past few years, so it's a bit of a dilemma. I am partially waiting it out and doing other things in hopes that taking a break will make me feel better about going back.

I'm back in the industry at the moment, but I did quit my job a few years back. I hired an allotment, grew a lot of vegetables, taught myself to bake bread and did a few other projects.

How was it? It was just great and it taught me about living on much smaller amounts of money, which is very helpful now that I have children and I work for a charity.

So maybe that's slightly off topic, and more of a career break than quitting the industry, but I'd still recommend it all the same.

I quit in Summer 2015 after working 5 years as a front-end engineer. I did a ton of camping and reading first. Then I worked on some farms in the Pacific Northwest for a few months. After that I moved into my family's second-home in Utah and started a part-time job as a cook at a farm-to-table restaurant.

I started a company with the mission of improving food systems. So I'm working on my second prototype app for this area. It's definitely a struggle to not have a salary and not be around a company of talented people every day, but I'm still enjoying it. I don't love writing software, but I just feel like what I'm working on needs to exist--so that's what I do now.

To follow on from the little thread from my comment over there [0]...

I was getting far too jaded and cynical about the constant reinvention of the wheel that was never better, just different. Along with the ever increasing crap masquerading as the next must have with added lock-in. We have far too much stuff and need to make less. The dissonance had me feeling part of the problem not the solution.

I'm less wealthy, but the dot com bust taught me to be frugal (or starve). But I'm spending a lot less too. I'm orders of magnitude happier and satisfied. I feel like I'm doing something substantive and feel good about what I do. I have more options and interesting choices in how the second career develops than I expected. I feel fitter and healthier, and I get to see daylight rather more!

The idea of side project or two to keep my tech neurons active appeals, and after 3 years or so out, appeals rather more. If it makes some extra so much the better.

Overall probably the best thing I've ever done.

Left the industry after 15 years, bought a garden store with existing customers and an online site. The freedom and family time was nice but burned through my savings and sold one of my paid off cars to pay the mortgage. Had a second child and needed to get back into the industry after 3 years. Sold the store, broke even, and went back to the 9-5.

This time the exit is being more thoughtfully executed. While making a good salary, I am slowly buying rental properties. Up to 3 so far. Fingers crossed that the second time is a charm.

Many in the industry say an IT job comes with golden handcuffs. Most other professions don't pay as good. IT workers often times make what management from other departments make.

My life since age 30 has been a slow odyssey away from a tech career.

After many years of software engineering, I switched to part-time in order to dabble in board game design on the side. It was fantastic - enough money to live comfortably, lots more free time - but also a little bit like golden handcuffs: in order to switch tech jobs, I'd have had to find another place OK with me working 3 days/week.

After doing that for 6-7 years, I talked it over with my wife and quit my tech job to do househusbanding instead. It got her more time (fewer chores) and me even more time (household work didn't take nearly the 30 hours/week that 3 days work + commute had), which let me ramp up the board game design. My wife works in tech, so one income was more than enough for us, even socking away plenty for retirement. It took some psychological adjustment on my part, but she was really good about vocally appreciating the work I did, which helped a lot with the transition. (Plus, I got to give a big middle finger to gender stereotypes, which was a source of satisfaction. :)

Then we decided to have kids, and I became a stay-at-home dad. Help from family and babysitters means I'm still able to spend some time pursuing game design (note: this is not cost-efficient - either "I parent full-time" or "daycare" would be cheaper - but it works for us, for now), and parenting is fantastic. Also frequently exhausting and frustrating - there's a heavy tradeoff of immediate-gratification happiness for life-arc happiness - but very rewarding, and the sound of my kids laughing together is pretty much the best thing in the world.

I still love programming, I just don't do it much. (Little side projects for fun every once in a while, or simple tools supporting my game design.) And I think I enjoy it more when I do, because I'm doing it intermittently of my own volition. Once both kids are in school and I have a little more time, I'll probably start messing around with mobile development - I find it slightly disconcerting to look at a computing device and not have the bone-deep certainty that if I chose to invest the time, I could make it do just about anything I dreamed up.

With financial reasons as your main barrier to quitting the industry, much of my experience won't apply to you - my wife's salary is the only reason things work as they currently do. But if you can fix your budget so that you can live (and save!) on 40-80% of your current income, you can try to find/make opportunities to switch to part-time work. I found that when I did, the benefits of the extra free time made me more focused during my working hours, and happiness with my life situation made me more excited about my job in general.

brazzledazzle 4 hours ago 2 replies      
This isn't really what you were looking for so feel free to flag me as off topic since I'm kind of piggybacking on it. I feel like a lot of people at bigger companies know what needs to be done, how to do it, want to do it and sometimes have even purchased something to accomplish it but we have the hardest time getting traction.

I think one major issue is that manual processes often don't really "hurt" managers, they hurt the people doing them. To a developer or ops admin, "This $badthing caused by a typo won't happen again if we automate this" sounds very reasonable but sometimes managers just see it as a mistake that someone will need to be more careful about. Once they've factored the turnaround time into how they estimate they don't seem as interested in speeding things up. All that seems exacerbated by reactionary/feature driven mindsets which makes any kind of improvement that doesn't have an external event/person driving it very hard to get slotted. This seems to be made worse if you're working with a manager that's never really done the work that the people they're managing do or they did it so long ago they don't have an intuitive understanding of how it works today.

Another one is that a lot of people who perform a manual process for a long period of time become invested in it and defensive of it. No matter how much faster or better it is and no matter how involved they are if they end up feeling threatened it's probably dead in the water. Pretty typical human nature thing I think but at a big company with a lot of old established manual processes this can slow automation efforts down to a glacial crawl. Even if there's only one person that fully understands it I don't think managers appreciate the risk of having all of your eggs in one basket.

Eventually things do get automated but it seems like it's driven by a disaster or politics more than anything else. And sometimes not even disaster seems to be enough to drive real change if someone isn't pursuing it.

If anyone has tips on how to deal with any of this I'd love to hear them.

The problem is, that it's really time-consuming and expensive to get decent terms of service/privacy policy/other common legal document squeezed out of your local lawyer.

The initial version is basically a copy-paste of some template that just has your own company's name put in and does not anyhow describe the service you're building.

After a week or two with back-and-forward you'll get to settle for some English-like gibberish 15-page document that has been passed through the email and you're sure that after all the hours you've put in to try to make sense of the document your clients have no chance to understand even half of it so you're just putting it in since the whole service is already past the deadline and everyone's anyway blindly ticking the box without reading.

The reason why this hasn't changed is that lawyers get paid by the hour, so it's not wise for them to automate anything.

For personal projects I've used some of the 5$ templates from quick Google search, but the problem is that I have no-one who'd take the blame when the shit hits the fan.

In the perfect world this would be an automated computer program that'd ask me a few questions and produce a perfectly understandable and legally binding document that has some trustworthy corporation behind it making sure I won't get sued for trying to do simple business.

The difficult part is that the areas that could be automated are usually the ones that would buy the automation software.

The person signing up for the automation would be reducing their total headcount, making them a perceived smaller player in the overall organization.

I've seen this in the purchasing part of big corporations. They automate with Ariba or similar, but then, don't shrink (even via attrition) to get the benefit.

Worse, because all these people still want something to do, they then inject more manual processes to feel like they are busy. Ugh.

Our password policy is pretty terrible. We don't even have our own user profiles. Whenever I'm on a different desk than my own, I get to experience a completely different desktop. With completely different applications installed, settings, etc. I work part-time hence my desk isn't the same permanent spot, so this does occur regularly. So apart from a security hazard, this is also a productivity loss.

I'd also swap everything to Linux (my preference is macOS, but I can see how that'd increase cost). For the kind of development we do, Linux is just as good as the other two.

I honestly don't know how to solve the issue for me easily. Perhaps just install all applications and settings on a thumb drive?

Domestic freight, specifically rate quoting and booking.

I sell large equipment to the food & spirits industry. It often has to be shipped on pallets. Before a customer decides to order something from us they generally want to know the freight shipping cost. Rates vary daily, so our salesperson has to stop the sales process to get a freight quotation.

3PL companies already exist, and are supposed to exist to get a best-available rate from the sprawling mess of local, intrastate, and interstate freight carriers. Still, we've found that to REALLY get the best freight rates we have to send out a quote request to 3+ different 3PL companies, wait for all the quotes to come back in, figure out the cheapest quote from the most reliable carrier, then re-ask the same 3PL parties if they're willing to beat the best available rate. The sales process loses a ton of momentum, and it wastes our shipping manager's time.

I used to work in a big law firm working on startup-related corporate work. A substantial portion of my job looked like this:

* Find a form or template for a document. Sometimes the "template" wasn't really a template but "we worked on a deal that was pretty similar to this one three months ago -- use that". Sometimes the template was "use this form except for this one section you should use from that form".

* Tag form / template as "version 1" in our document management system.

* Fill in all the blanks, remove brackets, etc.

* Tag this as "version 2" in our document management system.

* Create a diff / redline with all my changes.

* Send diff to partner for review.

* Incorporate changes from partner into document.

* Replace (rather than append) "version 2" in our document management system with the new doc.

* Email document to opposing counsel for review.

* If we're sharing docs with opposing counsel via Dropbox, Box, etc., upload there too. But also email them, because they might not remember to check Dropbox.

* Bug opposing counsel every 24-48 hours until they respond with an edited copy of our document.

* Let partners and clients know that you are bugging opposing counsel so they know it's totally not your fault if this deal doesn't get done by Friday.

* Save opposing counsel's edited document as "version 3" in our document management system.

* Create a diff of the document they send and ask partner to review.

* Bug partner every 24 hours until they respond with more changes.

* Save this as "version 4" in our document management system.

* Send this, along with a diff, back to opposing counsel.

* Somewhere in this process we also pass along to our actual client for review.

* Repeat until no one has any more changes. Do this for many more documents that are part of the same deal.

* Send out the first set of documents for signature. Some people don't want to actually review the things they're signing (crazy!), so we create "signature packets" where it's just like four signature pages in a row. Also, everyone has a different set of documents to sign so different people get different sets of pages + documents -- and sometimes we need to make sure that person X doesn't see some document that only person Y can see because secrets.

* Or we use an e-signature service, in which case I spend some time creating little boxes over all the document so the service knows that this is a place where a signature-like image has to go.

* Discover some error in document. Fix. Redo all of my little boxes.

* Respond to people confused about how e-signatures work. Sometimes if there are four documents, the signatory gets four e-mails and then they're confused as to whether they should just sign the last one or all four or whatever (you should sign all four). Also, sometimes people refuse to use e-signatures, so we have to explain to people that because Docusign says the deal is done doesn't mean it's actually done.

* Sometimes this is where we file stuff with the state government.

* Send out a second set of documents of signature. We don't send these out with the first set (even if the same person is signing stuff in both the first and second set) because it's very important that the second set not be signed until after the first set is signed by all the parties (or after we get some sort of confirmation back from the government if there's a filing involved). Sometimes we have very important people that hate being interrupted to sign documents, so we let them sign everything in one go but hold some of those signatures "in escrow" so we can "release the signatures" in the right order.

* Track all of the outstanding signatures and filings via a spreadsheet and try to update this in as "real time" as possible.

* Respond to partner or client asking you about deal status by pointing to spreadsheet.

* Respond to partner or client unable to open spreadsheet for whatever reason by summarizing signature status in text form.

* Bug people periodically until everything is signed.

* If any of the parties to a deal refuses to e-sign stuff, this is where I have to create a "final" signed PDF copy of the documents, wherein I replace blank signature pages in a document with some faxed or scanned signature page.

* If signatures were being held "in escrow", bug the people who are holding the signatures in escrow for confirmation that the signatures are released.

* Sometimes these people need to bug other people for confirmation. These people then ask lots of questions like "has other person X signed yet?". Point to spreadsheet.

* Sometimes money gets wired here. Wait until we confirm the money came in.

* Signatures are released! The money came in! Tell everyone the deal is done!

* Curl into fetal position.

What's your advise For a grad student at a top-level university who is working on a cool scientific project in a great lab while having a few great startup idea falling under your call for startup and he has a constant battle between either continuing his research or putting a stop on it and submit application for your next batch?

It might be helpful to know that I will submit application wither now or at the end of my phd but that would be three years from now. On one side if I wait I will have support of my supervisor and my committee members as advisors who are big in their fields and probably catch your eyes, on the other side a few years from now might be too late!

I am learning JS myself and here is the order that seems to work for me:

1. DO not start with ANY framework. None. Forget about react, vuejs or whatever the flavor of the month is. Just don't pay attention to it.

1. Start with plain ES5. One good resource:


2. Once you have a good grasp of ES5, then learn ES6. Again, for ES6, don't worry about Babel or shit like that. Just learn the syntax and new things about ES6 and directly test in Chrome

3. Learn how to compile ES6 into ES5 (Babel etc)

4. Learn Typescript (the daddy of all). Typescript will convert to ES5 or ES6 both. So make sure your concepts of ES5/ES6/ES(n) are clear before you do typescript so that it is not all magic for you.

5. Then, start learning about the bundlers and compilers like webpack and Babel etc. For bundlers, webpack is hot right now. Babel is good for ES6 to ES5 conversion but then again, typescript could take care of that.

6. Finally, time for frameworks. Start with one. React is good. Vuejs is good. They are all good at something. By the time you are at this step and you did all the steps before it, you will know what you are doing.

My 2 cents. This could change depending on which month/year are we talking about :)

Pick out some local companies you would be interested in working as an intern at? Stop by see if you can get a tour, make connections, inquire if they have an internship program.

Most fun/tech companies love helping kids. We coach a lego robotics team and have gotten lots of tours, demos and even a meeting space for our team at a local startup.

All by calling, stopping by, following up and asking politely.

An internship would be a little different, but if you get to know people at a company it makes it much easier.

Back in August I launched https://IndieHackers.com, a site where the founders of profitable online businesses share their stories and revenue transparently. I actually got the idea after reading lots of threads like this one on HN :D

Indie Hackers is my full-time job now. Is it "successful"? I think so! I've done over 90 interviews, and they've been read over one million times in the past 5 months, largely by you guys! I also made $2239 in December and hope to grow revenue another 50% in January. (As I do every month, I just blogged about that here: https://IndieHackers.com/blog)

I'm working on a podcast as well that I'm really excited about, as I've found it's a bit easier to get famous founders to agree to that format and to speak transparently about behind the scenes details.

My grandfather has Parkinson's disease and the hand tremors that go with. This makes using a mouse nearly impossible because the cursor flies all over the place.

I created free software called SteadyMouse[1] back in 2005 to remove this tremor while letting normal mouse motion through. It eventually moved up near the top of Google's search results. At the same time, the free version began to show its age with compatibility issues. I spent the last two years on a massive rewrite for a commercial version and formed a single member LLC to carry it back in July 2016.

Revenue is not enough to quit my day job writing automotive firmware, however it's still a nice bit of allowance on the side. I enjoy the stories from users mostly as well as trying to automate the repetitive tasks so I can focus on coding.

I run https://PhantomJsCloud.com

I started it as a free MVP about 2 years ago while in Thailand, and given that I was attracting a slow but steady stream of users I decided to build out a commercial v1 from it.

The freemium SaaS went live in March and it's growing monthly. If I still lived in Thailand I would consider it very successful, but I am in the Seattle area now so it's ramen profitable.

The biggest surprise I got was how slow organic growth takes. Every month I gain more users + MRR but discovery seems to be the biggest problem. I tried Google Adwords in June but Google decided to cost me upwards of $5/click for basic keyword targeting so gave that up. I tried Adwords again in November and now google thinks I'm more relevant, so I pay starting at $0.20/click for the same keywords that cost $5/click 6 months previous. I am currently doing experiments to see if the acquisition cost justifies that spend.

From a effort perspective, the SaaS api+backend itself was about 50% of the effort. The subscription service + user dashboard was another 50%.

From a skills perspective, I think doing a SaaS as a solo founder is only practical if you have extremely broad skillsets: Business management, UX, full-stack webdev, devops, sales, marketing, support. Thankfully I have some experience in all those (except sales) so I was able to either do or fake everything required. If you don't have all those skills, you are going to be increasingly reliant on luck, which isn't a winning strategy.

I'm not sure if this qualifies as an "online business", but I started an ISP in November '15. It's also not entirely "one-person". I am the sole founder, but I do hire part-time help on occasion if I'm swamped. It started off as a WISP and has finally grown to the point where we are beginning to deploy fiber.

The site is https://nepafiber.com

I still work full-time as a systems engineer, but the business started bringing in more money than my job does around 3 months ago. I'm only still at my job so that I can expand more rapidly; running fiber isn't cheap.

I started Hobo Hammocks a year and a half ago (www.hobohammocks.com)

I got the idea when a buddy of mine and myself decided to live out of our cars and sleep in hammocks on the backstop of an abandoned softball field. Doing so made me more aware of the homeless and what they are going through, and I wanted to do something to help them.

I started the company and donate a meal to the homeless with every hammock I sell. Profits have been amazing, and I've been able to donate over 5500 meals to the homeless.

I'm actually working on a new project now. It's part of the same company, but it's a kickstarter campaign launched yesterday for a sleeping bag called the Yak Sak. It's got a couple cool design tweaks which you can read about here:


With every sleeping bag I sell, I donate one to the homeless as well so I can keep giving back.

It's kind of like the TOMS business model. I'm still out to make a profit, but I want to do some good along the way. I hope this answers your question without being too spammy of a post!

Soundslice is interactive sheet music synced with audio/video recordings the Internet's best software for learning pieces of music.

We make money by licensing the technology, taking a cut of lessons in a video-lesson marketplace, plus charging $20/month for a "pro" version (Soundslice For Teachers).

We're happily bootstrapped and located comfortably far from the La La Land of Silicon Valley. (I moved from Chicago to Amsterdam a year ago, and my partner is in Chicago.)

In fact, being able to tell potential customers/partners that we're not a "conventional" startup (one that just wants to sell out to give its investors a return) has been an unexpected benefit. The story resonates with people, and it's good for building trust.

I run a non-tech based business www.texadmissions.com while traveling the world full-time. I help students apply to college specializing in admission to UT-Austin. I am a former admissions counselor for UT. I founded my business in April 2015 and it is my only revenue stream. I work 99% by e-mail, though occasionally I skype or receive calls via international sim card.

I am a lead moderator on www.reddit.com/r/applyingtocollege and I produce content through a blog and a popular Youtube channel. My traffic is completely organic - I don't pay for advertising. My only competitor is the university itself. They are notoriously bad about getting information out to the public. I supply that demand and live off consulting fees. In a way, I can reach many hundreds and thousands more people outside of an institution than I could physically visiting high schools in my previous role.

My revenues more than allow me to explore the world. In the early days, I could adjust my runway by simply traveling slow and staying longer in less costly places. I don't make enough money right now to live a conventional life in an American city, but I can live comfortably elsewhere. I charge a lot less than my competitors while, I believe, providing a higher quality service. I am currently transitioning into products.

I fly to Barbados next week to begin my fourth year abroad.

Hi,here's mine: http://mee6bot.com :) .You can read a short article I wrote recently about it: https://medium.com/@anis.blk/the-mvp-that-got-to-480k-unique... .


Last March, in my little darky flat somewhere in the middle of France, I had this idea to launch a little chat bot in a platform called Discord. I was coding all day long to deliver a functional and satisfying version of what I had in mind. These were the most profitable 3 days of my life

Discord is a slack-like application. The main difference between slack and discord is that discord is made for gamers. Its free, easy to use and has gamers oriented features like a great and reliable voice communication feature.The platform was crowed with a lot of chat bots. But those were very rigide, and kind of complex to setup. They were generally made from a programmer perspective. The user experience was meh

My goal was to make the ultimate bot.I wanted to bundle all the popular functionalities that people use. Instead of using 10 bots in your team, youll just have to use mine. But for that to work, I also had to make the bot fully customizable. So that you could enable/disable any feature easily.

And the coding started After 3 days of hard work, It was time for me to find users. The first thing I did to gain some traction was to go to some big Teams and convince the owners to use the bot. I spammed a dozen of big team owners. The kick worked, the engine started and never stopped since.

I created an online game called Mossms (http://mossms.com). It's a game where you breed critters, you raise the babies, and put them to work building little towns where they learn and work and play. Think The Sims plus Tamagachi. Their AI is fun and mesmerizing to watch, and our secret sauce is in reminding people about things they've forgotten about how wonderful it is to be a kid. It's something pretty much everyone can connect with, even if they have trouble identifying exactly why they're entranced. Our biggest customers are actually micro business owners that run their own farms and auction off their wares. I built tools for creating new content and handed this business off to my partner who still grows and maintains the business today. She doesn't know how to code, but she knows how to build and maintain communities.

How I got started: when I started my first game I thought the hardest part was coming up with a good idea. Then I built and launched something amazing, I realized that the real hard part is figuring out how to reach the people that would want to buy it. So when I started the next venture, I started with identifying how I was going to market it, and building relationships with the right communities even as I was starting the code. That product launched successfully, then I learned that I can't wait till the end to figure out a business model that works for myself and the customers both. It took me several different products over several years to get a mix of product, marketing, and business model that worked well.

The hardest part is knowing when you're building something that just isn't right yet, vs when you're fooling yourself and failing and just not admitting it yet. I still don't know how to tell the difference.

2. Have a unique voice and viewpoint.

3. Write about a growing or mature field. (early to late majority)

4. Main distribution channels are email newsletter and social media.

5. Create an information product (book, course, videos, whatever) and convert newsletter signups into sales.

I started the website http://www.wrestlestat.com 3 years ago. It is a college wrestling website where the main feature of the website was to be able to view common opponents between 2 wrestlers. There's no other product out there for this, so it's 100% unique. In addition to that, it provides, rosters, schedules, results, statistics, rankings, as well as 2 different fantasy platforms.

Now, is this successful? To me, yes. When I started it originally, it was just a "fun" side project, the first website that I developed once I got into web programming (10 years on client server architecture prior to). It's a 100% free site, but I monetize through AdSense. Taking out my hosting costs, it doesn't make very much money, but it IS profitable. No way I'd be able to make a living off of it though.

So in my eyes, yes it's successful, in terms of HN folks, probably not so much. But I'm having fun with it!

The growth is slow and steady but not at a point where I'm doing it full time. I don't think 'successful' needs to be determined as 'majority of owners income'. For me it's a lucrative side project that requires little attention day to day. It doesn't need to provide the majority of my income since it doesn't take the majority of my time.

I've been doing this for six years now, and we make small incremental improvements every release that don't cost a lot to do. I mostly focus on overseeing manufacturing, QA and maintaining a dealer network who will sell the product.

I am embarrassed to say I haven't spent a lot of time on growing the operation, but on the flipside the return is pretty good for the amount of work that I put in to it.

I have another website which is pretty much an archive of a radio program that has been going for 10 years and that is a pretty good compliment to my income.

The growth curve for NetIn is rather smooth, I did the usual marketing for it, including creating a Chrome Ext, posting to LinkedIn, FB, Twitter, etc. I'd say the biggest difference came when I manually submitted a sitemap to Google with near 30 million URLs. Also after getting a lot of angry emails from people decided to remove all public info until a time when I can address the privacy concerns in a better way.

It's Stripe with monthly subscriptions, I tried calling prospects but soon realized I'm not a sales person, so now it's fully automated, it's free trial and then you pay if still interested in using it, no sales calls, no sales emails.

I launched JobTrack (https://jobtrack.io), a CRM for job seekers, about three months ago and have been seeing decent growth since then. I've predominantly relied on word of mouth and organic social media marketing but also launched a paid marketing campaign on Facebook a few days ago.

The overall premise for the product is that when searching for a job, the job seeker will likely make a spreadsheet or notebook of the jobs they're interested in and applying to, along with some notes and key dates. JobTrack replaces spreadsheets with a straightforward app to track that information, and more, in a structured manner that is also available from mobile (and Chrome extension coming soon). JobTrack also has analytics to show how the job search is progressing.

I'm hoping to go full time in 2017 and raise investment. At that point I'll likely try to bring on a co-founder and perhaps an employee or two.

I founded Smooz (https://www.smooz.io), a Slack app to connect teams through shared channels. It was initially a small hack "for fun", but when Slack opened their Directory end of 2015 it was an opportunity to turn it into a "real app".

After launching in January last year, I saw a relatively significant level of interest from early users (relatively significant = much more than I had in all my previous side projects). 10-20 active early users are very good for the ego when you are usually met with polite indifference. I can't thank them enough.

After a bit from traction fro Product Hunt, I started monetize in May. After a few months, I have about 20 customers, for about 300 /month revenue. I changed pricing in November (cheaper, but without free plan), and I start to see some promising growth.

Smooz being a side project, and the first one I take from idea to shipping to scaling issues, and from early users to actual customers, is an incredible success for me in itself, if only for the learning. Success on the financial side will be when I reach 1000 / month (recurring, passive) with it.

I run a network of online vinyl lettering design sites I have written over a period of 5 years. I started with the custom cart platform on asp.net MVC and just one website. It is a multi tenant platform with end to end web to print capability. The designers are built in Knockout in a modular way so bits and pieces can be tweaked depending on the use. The Racing site is written in Durandal so not all of the code has been rewritten. I now have 4 websites on the platform. I also wrote a stand alone cloud based service to handle the image generation (http://ionapi.com) and outputting vector files for production. It was originally intended to be open but I have gotten so swamped handling production it hasn't materialized. Most of the nuts and bolts of it are there, but no documentation. I do have it setup behind HAproxy and load balanced on several servers.

I farm out most of the production process but handle customer service. I originally got into all of this to be a side income to supplement web consulting. I have since concluded I hate all of the baggage that comes along with dealing with small town local businesses. I have been fortunate enough to be able to move into a bigger facility for production now and intend to do some work in house now along with hiring an employee or two rather than farm out.

A few of my sites:

I am running a niche SaaS for franchisees of several buy/sell/trade retail stores. Http://ResaleAI.com

I built the entire thing myself, handled partnerships, support, sales, etc. All while still running three of these stores.

While I did all of the development, I do have a full-time executive assistant who helps me with a ton of things (email, scheduling, errands, etc).

Now I am building a team because there is no way I would be able to maximize this opportunity by myself.

Selling macOS apps at https://www.binaryage.com.

TotalFinder.app sales is what allowed me to work on my own projects full time. This is what I personally define as a success. I own 100% of my time and stuff I create.

Since introduction of macOS system integrity protection sales have been poor. But luckily I made enough in previous years so I have pretty long runway to build something new.

It's a free/subscription-based tool that views sites from a number of locations from around the world, sending back a screenshot and DNS information. Originally launched in 2013, it's been profitable since 2014 and requires very little care-and-feeding while it serves up around 225,000 queries a month.

I'm currently working on an overhaul which will dramatically improve its feature set and will, with any luck, engender even more interest among enterprise-level users.

I got started writing video games at University in England, when there was a thriving marketplace for games written in Flash, and websites would buy licenses (sometimes exclusive ones) to have your game on their site, this is back in '09. From a student's perspective some would pay really well, a few thousand dollars for a project that would take a few months.

Seven years later I find myself running a business making video games in the more traditional pay-to-download format, like this one, called The Cat Machine - http://store.steampowered.com/app/386900. I'm sure compared to other online businesses, or even other indie game developers, comprised of one person it's not mind-blowingly successful, but my games have paid my modest (single guy) living costs while I work on my next project.

My games are multi-platform (Windows, Mac, Linux) and I sell on my website, Steam, Humble Bundle, the Apple Mac Store and a few other places, and they write me cheques every month. Every project has a long tail with regards to revenue, and occasionally there are spikes, like the Steam Holiday sale a few days ago, and just this morning I woke up to The Cat Machine being on the main page of Apple's Mac Store in a 'Popular Puzzlers' section. Each of these bump my budget for my next projects up another month or so. The initial sales spike when a game is released is bit crazy, suddenly having your salary for the next one and a half years dropped into your bank account all in one go.

The reason I can do this as a one-man band is that I can program, but I also have some artistic skill, so I can draw and digital paint and animate. To speed up development as much as I can, I write within the Unity engine with C#, which has a great pipeline for art assets, which I create in Photoshop and Spine for 2D characters and textures, and The Foundry's excellent Modo software for 3D assets. The only things I don't do for my games are the music, I have an excellent composer friend who works for TV and Film, and I'd be silly not to contract him to do that. But apart from that, I do all the design, writing, programming, marketing, etc, which is part of the fun, wearing lots of different hats.

If you're _really_ interested in how I work, I actually do a series of high-level development videos on my current project: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsg018B0PK60ZoaNqw_in...

Also happy to answer any questions, within reason, about making a living making games about cats riding around on trains.

It can be done. Probably the most interesting story I know of is that of a friend of mine that now makes ~$200k/mo from viral content websites in specific verticals. Back in 2007, before I knew him, he was desperate for money and became a minor cog in what turned out to be a large real estate straw buyer conspiracy. He claims to not have not known it was illegal. Regardless, in 2013, as the statute of limitations on the case began running out and most of the people that actually ran and profited from the scheme were serving federal prison sentences, his name came up, and one of the states involved decided to press charges. He was arrested and posted bail.

He was eventually offered a plea agreement for a prison sentence of three years and more than $600,000 in restitution that he had no way of paying. Facing financial and personal ruin, he ran while on bail, hoping to buy some time to make enough money to offer restitution in leiu of prison time. This article [1] about the success of viral content websites inspired him to give the concept a shot himself, figuring he had nothing to lose. He launched a series of websites with viral content for highly specific verticals.

He now has a handful of virtual assistants in low-wage countries that rewrite/locate content and post it, but was making more than $100k/mo before he brought in a single other person. The business has generated a Facebook fan page network with more than 10 million likes, monthly income exceeding $200k, and he has turned down multi-million dollar offers to buy his company. He was also able to able to resolve his criminal case by simply handing the court a $700k cashier's check for restitution/fines and a accepting few years of informal probation without spending a day in jail - even though he ran while on bail, which courts frown upon. As Eric Schmidt likes to say, "revenue solves all known problems" [2].

So yes, it is certainly possible to run a highly successful online business by yourself, and you don't even have to be all that technically proficient. I can program circles around my friend, but he makes more than most of the brightest engineers at world class companies do - where he could never get an interview, much less a job. He did all of this starting with nothing more than PHP for Dummies, the inspration from the ViperChill article, and a serious disincentive for failure (prison, in this case).

https://forcerank.it has been going for about two years now and is a steady producer of beer-money. (Well wine actually, but I digress)

It's been a great project and was unbelievably useful to go through the challenge of really getting how marketing works. It's astonishing how you can build software for companies for years, but making that first $5/month subscription revenue feels so awesome.

Almost all my traffic is organic, then viral from the initial person that signs up. SEO is amazing. A slow slow trickle but over time it really works. I would reiterate what everybody else says. I've spent 70% of time on marketing. 30 on coding. The nice thing about organic is that you can ignore it for months though and jump back in anytime with a good blog post.

I built and run SugarWOD (https://www.sugarwod.com). SugarWOD is a workout solution for CrossFit gyms including apps (iOS/Android), website, plug-ins, and TV support. Was a solo, free service for the first 3 years. Converted to a paid model 1.5 yrs ago, and as of a few months ago have part-time contractors helping with tech/ops, mktg, and support.

I agree with novaleaf that a very broad skill set is needed, though I'd add that it might be enough to at least be interested in all the areas mentioned. You can learn a lot along the way, which is a big part of the fun. If you're focussed on making a great Product (capitalized product = the entire customer experience including everything from web copy, onboarding, support, performance, features, etc.) all of it is important.

As an aside, I think it is this breadth that allows someone to be a "10x problem solver", which to me is 10x more interesting than being a "10x developer". Code is a means to an end.

"Success" is a malleable and personal term, but by typical SaaS metrics SugarWOD is a success. Millions of workouts logged, paying customers, profitable, growing quickly.

More importantly, I get huge satisfaction working on something I feel passionate about, and I really love running the entire business from a laptop anywhere in the world (though I'm usually not far from Colorado :)

My previous SaaS product, Navilytics, I built from scratch and ran completely on my own (minus a couple of blog posts from a friend). It very well could have been successful, but I made the mistake of thinking the product would sell itself and never did any real promotion leading up to launch. I paid for this as another competitor, who had the same idea I had at the same time and built their own version of the product, starting marketing it before it was even in beta. They're doing > $1 mil per year now in revenue.

Previous one before that was an affiliate network I ran with a buddy of mine, so just two people. We did very well with this one (but only mildly when compared to other large affiliate networks at the time).

My new project, I'm working with a buddy of mine who's good at the things I'm not so good at. While I think it's 100% possible to be a sole founder and do very well, having a solid team makes the entire process a lot easier. Plus, having people to bounce ideas off of usually leads to making better decisions.

I, alone, publish an add-on on the Atlassian Marketplace. I have several add-ons for diversification, but 1-2 of them is 99% of my income. Server sales are one-off (but 80% of my income) and Cloud sales are recurrent (better if you hope to hire).

Define successful: I 100% live off it ($50k/yr before taxes). Biggest new add-ons are often agencies who can afford to sponsor their development because it's a customer funnel for them; I'm one of the rare new who built a business from scratch and lives off it.

The Atlassian APIs could be difficult[1], but the reward is great: Being a vendor introduces you to the biggest corporates without having to be referenced or pass the Purchase Order process, so you can very easily sell to companies similar to Samsung, HSBC, Defense actors or Ubisoft.

My advice: Build a real product with your add-on, not just a tweak to Atlassian's products. Tweaks = SQL reader, theme, formatting of mathematical expressions, ... Products = Balsamiq, Gliffy, time management solutions, architecture/CAD solutions, requirement management, accounting, aeronautical check-lists, etc. Be a bit ambitious and you'll be the reason why people switch to Atlassian and money will pour onto you.

[1] Difficult = They're scattered between Server and Cloud apis, and architecture is widely different bw JIRA and BitBucket, but it's still possible to start quite fast with https://connect.atlassian.com .

Hey, a friendly reminder. Im parsing the thread, all job offers added here are also available on the map on


If you post here:

Last month (https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=13080505) Ive started a small campaign to update thread format and make it more parser friendly for whoishiring.io and others website I know that at least few websites that do similar thing.

As a result off this calling, many posters actually complied. Which resulted in more accurate map positions, better tagging (REMOTE, VISA, INTERNSHIP, ) and for some I was even able to get logos. Thanks!

Here is the format.

 1) {company} | {job title} | {locations} | {attrs: REMOTE, INTERNS, VISA, company url} Google | Software Developer | SF | VISA https://google.com DuckDuckGo | Software Developer | Paoli PA | REMOTE, VISA

 2) {company} | {job title} | {locations} Google | Site Reliability Engineer | London, Zurich, Sydney Facebook | Web-developer | London, Zurich
Im using this regex to test the firstline.

You can test it in Python or here https://regex101.com/r/relwQD/3 (for the match look right).

Binti | San Francisco, CA | Software Engineer | Full-time, onsite, will transfer H-1B | $100K $140K, 0.25% 1.0%

Binti makes software for foster care and adoption agency staff to improve their daily workflow so they can make better-informed decisions and spend more of their time actually helping people. Our mission is to find a safe, loving, and stable family for every child.

Binti's software is used by private adoption agencies in 30 states. We're in the midst of expanding into serving government foster care agencies and are close to reaching two-thirds of the foster care families in the state of California.

We have sustainable revenue, fanatical customers, and ample seed funding from top investors like First Round, Kapor, and Lowercase. We work together in SF and are growing rapidly.

Binti's main SaaS web product is a conventional monolithic Rails/Postgres app that delivers value in heaps and heaps, and remains super fun to hack on. We're building the monolith up higher and higher, and looking forward to soon chipping off a service or two (perhaps in Elixir?). Some of the areas in which we are especially seeking to round out our engineering team include web accessibility, front-end development, operations/"devops", UX, and security. We do not expect you to have all these skills, but are listing them here to give you a sense of our most pressing needs. We're using Kubernetes/Google Cloud.

SUSE | REMOTE, or Nuremberg (DE), or Prague (CZ) | Full Time

Live Patching developer

"Live Patching" is the Linux kernel infrastructure by which one can apply changes to a running kernel; this allows, for instance, to fix a security vulnerability with no downtime. As a live patching developer you will extend and maintain our live patching tooling, both for kernel and userspace live patching. The main purpose of this role is working on improving the automation that helps with generation and verification of the actual live patches. In addition to that, you will implement tooling for userspace live patching and participate in developing the actual live patches as well.

This is a remote working position; if you want to work at a SUSE office instead, that is fine as well.

What we offer

You will take part in the development of the core parts of our enterprise and community distributions and you will be encouraged to submit your work upstream. We will sponsor travel to relevant conferences where you can present your work. Working time is flexible and we offer a bunch of the usual benefits (these differ in different countries, though).

How to apply

Preferably, submit all relevant information in a single PDF file, so that no important detail is lost in transit. Give us some time to process your application. Expect the interview to be done over phone. Form submission for this position at https://jobs.suse.com/job/nuremberg/live-patching-developer-...

This is not the only job opening currently available at SUSE, see suse.com/jobs

Scalyr | San Mateo, CA (ONSITE)

Frontend Engineer: $125-160K, >=0.3% equity

Agent Engineer | $125-160K, >=0.3% equity

"Agent Engineer" sounds like something from Person Of Interest, but actually you'll own our lean, mean data collection agent. An ops visibility tool is only as good as the data it collects, and we pride ourselves on gathering everything from logs to system metrics to application metrics to API data. If you enjoy constantly getting to play with new tools, come help us connect to... everything. You'll get to play with packages from Apache to Zookeeper, APIs from AWS to, er, Azure, while tackling challenges such as monitoring 100,000+ simultaneous log files using minimal CPU.

Frontend Engineer: we earn our keep by giving users unprecedentedly fast and easy tools for exploring vast amounts of operational data. That starts with our unique backend query engine, but it doesn't mean anything without an equally amazing frontend. We're building a brand-new web app that adds features while removing complexity, all with an eye to performance. As a ground-up rewrite, there's lots of opportunity for you to have a significant impact. If you care about user experience, enjoy great engineering, and want to join an experienced team where you can really stretch yourself, we'd love to hear from you.

At Scalyr, we've built a log analysis and ops visibility tool that our users rave about, because it smashes expectations for performance and ease of use. We offer the equity, influence, and fun of an early-stage company, with stability, great pay, and a low-stress culture. We have great backers, strong traction, and an 11-digit target market. I've built half a dozen startups, including Writely (aka Google Docs), and I can honestly say this is my favorite so far.

If this sounds like fun, check out the link below, or drop us a line at jobs@scalyr.com.

See edx.org, stanford.edu or fun-mooc.fr for examples of Open edX instances. We are a team of ten developers, working remotely from Europe, North America, Asia, Russia & Australia. The company is not affiliated with edX, but contributing and working with them on various projects.

It's a large Python/Django codebase, with good code standards and architecture (a lot of the edX engineers come from MIT). You would work on different clients contracts using the platform. The clients list/references include Harvard, edX themselves, the French government, and various startups & universities currently running their own instances, or looking to create one. Tasks are varied, from developing developing core platform features, custom exercises and tools for specific courses (XBlocks), customizing and deploying instances, working on both client/server sides, etc.

Most of your work is published as free software (Open edX is released under the AGPL license, which requires clients to release modifications under the same license), and you would also contribute to the free software project, pushing some of your developments upstream through pull requests, contributing features, documentation or help on mailing-lists.

Stack: Python/Django, Ansible, AWS/OpenStack, Debian/Ubuntu, JS, HTML/CSS, MySQL, MongoDB

Interview process: a 15 minutes (simple) coding exercise & a 30 minutes Hangout. If that works out, you're given a (paid) test task: a contribution to the Open edX project. The decision is taken based on how you handle the upstream contribution.

To apply, fill this form: http://opencraft.com/jobs/open-source-developer/

Credit Karma | San Francisco, Los Angeles, Charlotte | Full Time, Onsite | https://creditkarma.com

Credit Karma's mission is to make financial progress possible for everyone. We have over 60 million US members and are a true mission-oriented business, a rare case where our incentives are aligned with our users - we succeed by helping our members attain financial progress.

We've been growing rapidly over the past few years (hypergrowth) and are hiring across a wide range of positions. On the backend side, we are moving to Scala-based microservices using finagle and Thrift, and as well as GraphQL on node.js. Our native iOS and Android apps are #1 in finance (with a 5 star rating on the App Store) and we're rebuilding our website in React + Redux. Our data teams use Kafka, Spark and BigQuery among other technologies.

If you're motivated by growth and impact Credit Karma is probably the best place to work in tech today. We have solved product / market fit and distribution, but compared to our peer unicorns there is still so much work to do. If you look at the gap between our product today and what we are well-positioned to become - the main touchpoint for consumer finance - there is tons of opportunity for people joining now to take on responsibility and ownership and have a meaningful impact.

Karius | Redwood City, CA | ONSITE | Full-time | Senior Software Engineer

Karius is taking the genomic sequencing revolution (NGS) out of the lab to build revolutionary infectious disease testing. Traditional testing approaches rely on culturing and hypothesis-driven testing, but we directly sequence the pathogen DNA. We booked our first commercial orders last year and are opening up for more now.

I am a software engineer without a biotech background that worked at companies making webapps. I really appreciate working with a team with diverse backgrounds and having the opportunity to learn many new things. Its nice that Karius is still a startup where you can make significant contributions in one area or broaden your understanding of different areas.

There is something different about the vibe at Karius. People are happy to come to be at work, there is a lot of maturity, and everyone seems to bring their own special talents into the mix. We have company retreats twice a year and we care about making it possible to experience joy at work.

If you bring experience in the following areas, we would love to talk more.

Bioinformatics Pipeline: Bioinformatics experience not required if you are an eager learner. Experience with a strongly-typed language (Rust, Haskell, Scala, F#, OCaml, Flow/TypeScript2) or experience with statically typed languages and appreciation of strong-typing.

Front-End: TypeScript, React, CSS, and work well with designers

Ops: Docker, building infrastructure on AWS with terraform and CloudFromation. Postgres, MySQL, DynamoDB

Backend Web Services: C#, Database schema modeling, REST APIs with Swagger documentation

Analysis: Experience with bioinformatics analysis and Python

This includes written content for our site and industry publications, working with our customers to develop case studies, and developing video content for our projects, side projects, and general shenanigans.

Blockai | Sr. Backend Engineer | https://blockai.com | San Francisco

Blockai is hiring our first full-time software engineer to work on a reverse image search engine for the whole web. Our ideal candidate has experience building data intensive systems, web crawling, search and indexing, distributed systems, etc.

We don't have a strong preference on programming languages or technologies, but here are some that we currently use: Node.js, Golang, Kubernetes, AWS, PostgreSQL, Redis, Kafka, ElasticSearch.

We started Blockai with the simple belief that people who create things should own their creations. As the world continues to change and many jobs get automated, one of the few things that won't be replaced is creativity. Thus, it is an imperative that there be proper infrastructure for creators to manage, monitor and monetize their work. We believe what we are building will enrich the lives of creators and inspire more people to create, making the world a better place.

If you're up for the challenge, send me an email (oli@blockai.com) and mention HN.

Dreams is challenging the fundamental idea of how banking is experienced by people every day.

Latchel | Seattle, WA (South Lake Union) |Engineering / web developer roles | Full-time | Onsite | http://latchel.com/

Latchel tracks and coordinates maintenance for property management companies. We use their existing vendors if they have them and find vendors if they do not. We see this marketplace differently than other companies in this field -- most companies focus on software-only solutions or purely manual coordination, which does not scale. At Latchel we use technology to make our internal operations much more efficient, but develop to the level our customers' users are comfortable with. After only a two months of operation, we're more than 3x more efficient than the industry standard for maintenance coordination. Join our small and growing team and bring technology to the technologically challenged property management space.

Our interview process focuses on behavioral and culture fit first, followed by a paid project for a technical assessment (no whiteboarding or brain teasers).

Languages: Angular.js (1.x), PHP (Laravel 5), PostgreSQL

If you'd like to learn more about the opportunity, problem space, and the team, email me: will@latchel.com

David | San Francisco, CA | https://www.senddavid.com | Fulltime | Onsite

David is a San Francisco-based software startup that combines technology and legal research to help customers resolve disputes with their cable, internet, or wireless service provider. The $200+ billion legal industry is still stuck in the 20th century: paper-based, error-prone and slow. With rates averaging $300 / hour, only 15% of Americans with serious legal problems even seek the help of a lawyer. For everyday issues like bogus cable bills, fewer than 1 in 1,000,000 of us seek justice, even though monopolists like Comcast rank in the 0th percentile for customer satisfaction. Class actions used to provide the necessary scale to combat certain widespread frauds, but over the past 5 years, the Supreme Court has allowed businesses to eliminate them.

The technical challenges are hard, ranging from automating the monitoring of corporate misconduct to crafting delightful user flows to building the leading database of outcomes in consumer disputes.

My company is looking to hire a senior Javascript developer to take change of our Backbone.js frontend.

Here are a few of the things I believe we should try to accomplish (I'm looking for someone to have this conversation with):

* Our Backbone codebase is currently located deep within a Rails app, and served with the Rails asset pipeline. I think we should separate the two codebases. The Backbone Javascript codebase could then use be set up with modern tooling such as npm, webpack, etc.

* Some folks have thought we should scrap the Backbone codebase entirely and rebuild it using a newer framework like React or Angular. But, I believe that it's too large for that, and I'd prefer a moderate approach where, we upgrade to the latest Backbone version, perhaps using Marionette as well, while also refactoring / cleaning the codebase. We could also refactor it to use a v2 of the Rails API.

You should be a modern Javascript expert who has worked on many (minimum 2-5) Backbone.js projects. You should be comfortable and passionate enough about Backbone.js to be willing and interested to refactor a large, existing app to be more performant, easier to work with, and so on.

So -- and thank you for reading this far -- basically we have a great opportunity -- lots of well paid, very comfortable, steady, challenging and interesting work, for the right person.

We offer very competitive pay, a very diverse, friendly, modern (unlimited snacks and drinks! not too many meetings!) and relaxed work environment, as well as valuable stock options. Office is in SF, SOMA and you must be able to come into the office several times per week.

Skyven Technologies | Lead Embedded Engineer (Firmware & Hardware) | Dallas | ONSITE http://www.skyven.co

Up to 3% equity plus up to $70k cash

Skyven Technologies is leveraging the latest advances in embedded electronics, optics, and materials to build the world's first fixed-axis concentrating solar thermal (CST) collector for distributed generation of industrial heat.

Industrial process heat accounts for a third of nation's energy use, yet existing renewable solutions for industrial heat are limited and economically non-viable. Skyven aims to change that by making distributed CST competitive with natural gas, without subsidy, within five years.

We are looking for a lead embedded electronics engineer to make a direct and enormous impact on technology development for Skyven Technologies' flagship product, the Solar Concentrating System (SCS). The role will entail algorithm development, embedded firmware programming, circuit design, PCB design, component selection, verification, contract manufacturing, testing, debug, and bring-up.

littleBits | Software Developer | NYC onsite | http://littlebits.cc

littleBits is a company aiming to get the world inventing. We make an award-winning system of modular electronics. Our kits have been integrated heavily in STEAM education programs and we are dedicated members of the maker movement. We aim to teach kids of all ages about systems thinking, empathy, and curiousity.

Our roots have been in hardware, but we are starting to rely more and more on software to enhance the system, and this is a position with that software team. We recently launched an iOS and Android app to allow you to control our Bluetooth LTE bits wirelessly. We also make a small internet-connected bit and run our own internet-of-things cloud to back it. Right now we are working on a programming-based kit that runs on top of our Arduino bit.

As a small team of software developers, we choose sharp tools and aim to keep our stack small. We enjoy a services layer written in Scala. Our main client is a Rails application that powers our community invention platform. Most UI work is done in React. A lot of our embedded systems work is C. Our IoT cloud is Java and a bit of Go. The responsibilities of this software team are 60% web/mobile work to support products, and 10% each to support our ecommerce site, brand site, sales/marketing efforts, and enterprise system integration.

Our interview process consists of a one-hour phone screen (including a brief coding exercise,) followed by a more extensive coding project with a 5-day deadline, and an in-person meeting of a half to a full day with the whole team.

If any of this sounds interesting to you, don't hesitate to get in touch at [paul.degnan@littlebits.cc]. There's a tremendous amount to do; ideally you have experience. Most of all though, we hope you're warm, understanding, funny, and committed to the cause.

Powerley is building the next generation of home energy management that will provide both the utility and the homeowner a new level of connectivity and intelligence.

We're looking for an experienced data scientist with strong statistical and predictive modelling capabilities paired with business strategy skills.

This person will be a very curious individual who enjoys diving deep beneath the surface to drive the development of the algorithms necessary to inform and enhance the product and user experience, and succinctly communicate that information, both verbally and visually.

You'll work closely with world-class engineers and developers to pair the insights derived from the algorithms developed with a great design and user experience to provide actionable information and insights.

Finally, the analyst will need to understand how the products are developed and even more important, as big data touches the privacy of consumers, they need to have a set of ethical responsibilities.

In addition to being a data whiz, our perfect candidate is someone who is driven to solve challenging problems while collaborating with a great team to do it.

Yammer (Microsoft) | Software Engineer | San Francisco, Seattle | Onsite | https://careers.microsoft.com/yammer

Hiring all roles (mobile, front end, java services, infrastructure) in San Francisco and Seattle.Yammer's mission has always been to connect people with information to enable better, faster decisions. We believe effective communication involves more than chat rooms (though we use those too!). A big part of the mission I enjoy is that we are sparking cultural changes in our customers; to become transparent workplaces, with fewer silos and greater connections across the org chart from left to right and bottom to top.

Since winning TechCrunch in 2008 our growth has been exponential year over year. Over the last 4 years as a part of the Microsoft Office 365 suite, we've been quietly tying our systems together with the O365 fabric while continuing to improve the experience using our tried-and-true data-driven methods. We know everything we ship has an impact, and precisely how much.We create with vim, SublimeText, IntelliJ, and GitHub; run on Macs and Ubuntu; write Swift & ObjC, Java (Dropwizard), Python, and Ruby on Rails; manage PostgreSQL, HBase, RabbitMQ, Memcache, HAProxy, ElasticSearch, Kafka, Storm, Kibana, and Vertica clusters at scale; and automate using Puppet, Docker, Mesos, Marathon and Azure across physical data center & cloud environments.We have two floors in the "Twitter building" at 10th and Market in San Francisco, where we work next to the Outlook Mobile, MileIQ, Volumetrix, and other acquired startup teams. It's a fantastic, open, creative space.

If San Francisco isn't your thing, we have a large sibling team in Seattle (Redmond). We're hiring for all roles in both locations!

Microsoft pays very competitively, invests in employees, and is highly supportive of a diverse and respectful workplace. It's a startup atmosphere with the stability and maturity of a large company, which makes it a perfect balance for me.

Email rtagger [at] microsoft.com for more information or if you have questions :]

Y Combinator-Backed People.ai is Hiring Engineers to Help Us Build AI for Better Team Management

People dont quit their jobs, they quit their managers. Everyone has had a manager that makes them not want to come to work. Everyone has had a manager who regularly forces their team to chase their own tail doing meaningless work.Why? Because most managers manage their teams blindly. They don't hire, coach and promote based on data. Instead, they make decisions based on their gut, either because they dont have the data to make better decisions or because they dont know how to make sense out of it.

Not anymore. At People.ai were helping managers make decisions about their team based on data, not intuition.Were starting with sales teams because theyre a particularly notorious black box. No manager today can definitively say what makes a top performer do better than a low performer. People.ai is solving that by making sales transparent and building the worlds first AI for managing sales teams.

We have a 10+ person team and are actively looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join us. Our team needs someone with full-stack/backend development experience as well as a deep background in Python, Linux, AWS, REST APIs and machine learning. Salesforce API experience is a plus!This isnt just another job. Your input will be incredibly important as were currently shifting from to a microservices architecture. Youll have an opportunity to make a major impact on a number of our microservices and ML/big data infrastructure as we are turning our MVP into a massively scalable product.

We offer a competitive salary with equity, a cool company culture, lunches and free snacks and drinks. At this time we are unable to provide visa sponsorship.

Nava | Washington DC & San Francisco SF | DevOps/Infrastructure/Systems Engineers, Software/Fullstack Engineers | Product and Project Managers | On-site - Full-time | $100k-$160k+ + equity + benefits

We're a small team of engineers, designers, and product builders that were brought in to help fix Healthcare.gov in the winter of 2013. Our revamped application is used by millions, converts 35% better, and halves the completion time.

It turns out theres a lot more to reimagine within government services, which is why were partnering with both the Department of Veterans Affairs and Medicare. With the VA, we are working to modernize their appeals system, making millions of veterans lives better through the process. Today, the average appeal takes 5 years to process; we can fix this. For Medicare, we are designing and building the architecture for Medicare's historic transition towards value-based care.

Its surprising how much can be done by a small group of empathetic people with a Silicon Valley mindset, deep technical experience, working closely with dedicated civil servants in government. Weve started Nava as a public benefit corporation to radically improve how our government serves its people, and we believe that the services our government provides should be clear and reliable. If you feel the same way, we'd love to hear from you at jobs@navahq.com

Walmart Technologies East | Reston, VA | Software Engineer - Mid or Senior ONSITE - Full-time

This is a (semi) new branch of Walmart Technologies (not to be confused with Walmartlabs that focuses on the .com site) that is focused on modernizing the stores systems and everything else that is not .com really. This is a great opportunity to work with very smart people in very challenging problems (I actually mean this, I am a software engineer who just started last November and I am astonished at the projects I have been able to work on so far and the technologies I have used). We are a new team and we are trying to find great software engineers to grow our team. We need them as the scale of the problems we are trying to solve is huge and we put a lot of focus on creating elegant solutions for those problems. One big plus also is that we encourage continuous learning (we have workshops and tech talks often) and we love it when you contribute (or have contributed) to an open source project. We want to give back to the community in different ways too (we volunteer, and do meetups frequently). So if you are super smart, like to be surrounded by smart people and solve difficult distributed problems, and you want to help define and build our office culture, you should contact us! Just a note, we expect you to have a good working knowledge of at least one JVM language (preferably Java or Scala). Get in touch at wmtech.reston@gmail.com

At ChowNow, we build online ordering systems for our over 4000 restaurants. We're launching some new products in the coming months that I'm really excited about. I love working here as an engineer. It's a great balance of challenge, freedom, and impact.

We've been growing quickly and we're looking to hire a DevOps engineer! For some background, we had a manually configured AWS infrastructure that we've just retired in favor of an Ansible / Terraform-based setup. We've automated infrastructure and deploys so it's a great time to come in and shape where we go from here. For example:

* Dockerize everything?

* Build out a Kubernetes cluster for our services?

* Use Spinnaker for a Continuous Delivery pipeline?

To be determined!

If you're interested or have questions what it's like to work here, please contact me at kevinlondon@chownow.com or our recruiter, Candice, at candice@chownow.com. This position is not yet formally posted but we are taking applications for it.

We also have positions open for Front-End (Ember.js / Node), Back-End (Python) engineers, and a Data Analyst on our careers page at https://jobs.lever.co/chownow?lever-via=MO5-ac-qvc.

The Infatuation | Platform Engineer | NYC, NYC | https://theinfatuation.com

The Infatuation started out with two guys who wanted to help their friends find not only great restaurants, but the right restaurant to suit their needs on a particular evening. Now it's grown to more than 20 full time employees, a website, a newsletter, a huge social media reach (#EEEEEATS), mobile apps, and a text message recommendation service.

This was all done with basically ZERO product investment. The good news is they've realized this and raised a series A to transition from an editorial/blog into a utility platform ala an expert curated Yelp/Foursquare. I came on this summer to build out a great engineering team. They've done in what my opinion is the hard work of building a brand with an audience in the millions, now it's our job to 10x that with great products.

We're looking for someone with 4+ years web development experience to contribute to and take ownership of the platform that runs https://theinfatuation.com. This platform is the life blood of our products and powers all digital incarnations of The Infatuation. It's a Django app and we will be carving out pieces into individual Python/Go services (search, registration, recommendations, etc.).

If this induces some heavy breathing reach out to me at buck@theinfatuation.com.

Showroom | Senior Software Architect, Product Manager, UX Designer | http://byshowroom.com, ONSITE (mostly)

Want to join the rare startup that intakes bits and outputs a physical product? A company that has both an office with a whiteboard and a 55,000 square foot factory near downtown Los Angeles?

We are revolutionizing a 400 year old industry and have built a little product that, in less than a year, has more customers queued up than we can handle.

At its core our app lets licensed interior designers upload a photo of a piece of furniture, and have it manufactured and shipped to their clients. But that's really the tip of the iceberg. Our many products in development range from traditional web and mobile apps to an RFID system which tracks furniture movement within a warehouse.

Our CEO previously co-founded one of the most successful tech startups in Los Angeles, which also happens to be in the interior design space. We believe in customer focus, hard work, engineering discipline, moving fast, and checking egos at the door.

If that sounds like you shoot "andy" an email @byshowroom.com to learn more!

Hustle | Software Engineer | San Francisco | ONSITE

Hustle is a peer-to-peer text messaging platform that provides organizations across the country with an affordable, efficient, and effective tool to reach their supporters. By facilitating two-way conversations, Hustles users can maintain genuine, personal dialogues with hundreds, thousands, and even millions of people. Our clients include Planned Parenthood, Human Rights Campaign, and Our Revolution (Bernie Sanders' organization).

As a product engineer, you will be working on Hustle's core web and mobile products: our web and mobile text messaging apps, our campaign administrative interface, and our message delivery back end. Product engineering at Hustle is unique in that we do not have mobile, front-end and backend specialists. Instead engineers are empowered to develop and ship features in their entirety covering the whole stack.

This feature of product development is enabled by Hustle's particular technology choices: the use of JavaScript, React, React Native and Node.js through out the stack. It's a stack that heavily rewards generalists that just want to ship things. It also makes for a very dynamic working environment: form a temporary team for a larger project where you decide to focus on shipping a polished mobile frontend and for the next project form another temporary team where you would focus on delivering a humming backend.

Hustle was started by engineers from Facebook and MongoDB and is backed by VC firms including Social Capital and Index Ventures.

Please apply on our site to learn more about us and our growing team of 14!

Elastic (http://elastic.co) ONSITE & REMOTE (Anywhere) Front-end Developer Full-time

Elastic, the company behind Elasticsearch and Kibana, is hiring.

We're looking for front-end developers to work on Cloud, our Elasticsearch-as-a-service product offering. Today, Cloud runs primarily in public cloud environments like AWS, allowing customers to provision and scale Elastic clusters in a turnkey fashion. We also plan to bring this same simplicity of deployment and automation to customers who want to run and manage multiple Elastic clusters on-premise (in their own data centers). You will be contributing significantly to both initiatives.

To get there we need more developers with strong JavaScript skills, but we definitely prefer developers who also have other strong front-end development skills. Maybe security, design, UX, CSS, functional programming, testing, or something else?

We need someone to help innovate, lead and contribute to the front-end and user experience of our Elasticsearch-as-a-Service offering. You will also be integral in shaping the products we build, not just implementing specs.

Most of the work we do today is with React and Redux.

Check out https://www.elastic.co/about/careers/engineering/jobs/czg_ky... for more info.

We're a very remote team with developers in Australia, Poland, Norway, Denmark, Argentina, Panama, the US and several other places (and a couple of us are currently travelling around the world while working).

If you're interested, don't hesitate in contacting me at kim@elastic.co

Underdog.io | New York, NY | https://underdog.io | Full-Time | ONSITE

Were looking to hire two full-stack engineers. Ideally, one would be a Javascript/Node.js Engineer, and the other would be a Python Engineer.

Today, Underdog.io is a curated marketplace for talent. We connect amazing people with founders, hiring managers, and recruiters at top technology companies.

Were building technology to reduce the noise of the job search and match. We started Underdog.io because we experienced the pains associated with (1) hiring while working at top startups and (2) looking for new opportunities.

Our platform is currently live in SF, NYC, and LA. We work with over 275 awesome companies. Quality is key to our model -- we turn away one of every two companies that have tried to join the network. We've proudly bootstrapped and profitable.

As we scale, well focus on building tools for candidates to organize, search, and discover new job opportunities. In our view of the future, job candidates dont receive as much unsolicited outreach from recruiters. Job search is organized, and talented candidates have more high-quality options.

We use Python/Flask, Javascript/Node.js, PostgreSQL, Elastic Search, AWS. We're also working on a project in Ruby/Sinatra. And we're big supporters of open source.

As an early-stage employee, you'll have a big impact on the architecture of our product, which includes real-time vehicle routing & dispatching, data analytics/ modelling, and complex SPAs. Our stack is primarily .NET, Angular, React/Redux, AWS, but we're moving toward an event-driven microservices architecture, using Kafka/AWS Lambda/k8s/Haskell/React.

We're hiring at all levels of the stack, but we'd be particularly interested in full-stack engineers. The ability to code in a variety of languages, particularly of the functional flavour, will be highly regarded. Bonus points for:

Data science skills (R/ Pandas etc, solid stats background)

Devops, containers, k8s, aws

Familiarity with our stack

Our interview process consists of a short code test (if you don't have any publicly accessible code for us to look at), and a technical interview in our Collins St office, 1-2 hours. After that, we'll be in touch within about a week.

Email me (joash at getswift dot co), prefixing the subject with "HN:". Include anything you think will show off your skills!

Come join Iterable. We're 36 people bringing the growth hacking tools that consumer internet companies like Google/Twitter/Facebook build internally to other large-scale companies. We aim to build the best user growth engine on the planet. It's crazy how messaging and email usage are changing, but the technology and capabilities haven't caught up to the 21st century.

Our team of hackers and thinkers is from quant finance/Twitter/Google/Yahoo/Zynga/Khan Academy/Palantir/CMU/MIT, (we built large parts of Twitter's growth systems). One of our top level goals is to build a uniquely fun and growth oriented company culture. Knowledge sharing in any capacity is highly valued here -- are you interested in prediction markets or PGP encryption? Do you enjoy teaching posture techniques or purely functional data structures to others? We pair program, design together, and generally create a learn-and-teach environment here. This is an opportunity to join a super-fast growing startup, in a huge market and with a great team, while it's still early.

If you're interested in coming on board, you can help with some challenges we face:

 - Scale our messaging API - Design and write performant, beautiful, asynchronous interfaces - Write software to build machine learned user models - Make data visualizations for our email and user data - Design an immutable deployment infrastructure for our platform
Some aspects of our culture that make us different:

 - We are all very focused on self improvement - Our company has egalitarian and transparent values (work when you want, on what you want) - We are chill & empathetic people - The company is completely transparent
Technologies you'll work with:

 - Scala - Elasticsearch - Postgres - Redis - ES6 - AngularJS - Play Framework - RabbitMQ
You'll get to work with us at our new office at 3rd & Harrison in San Francisco. If this sounds like an interesting and fun opportunity for you, please email us at aXRzYXVuaXhzeXN0ZW0raG5AaXRlcmFibGUuY29t or take a look at our open positions here: https://iterable.com/company/careers

We're a fast growing enterprise startup in the big data space focused on improving the efficiency and lives of marketers and their entire team by building a beautiful interactive and intuitive interface that abstracts away all the messiness of data and databases.As a fullstack engineer you'll work very closely with product and UX to keep our product exciting and innovative. You'll be given tons of responsibility and ownership of projects that span from UI widgets and completely new views to implementing and designing APIs. Since our team is still small there is still time to define how we build software and we expect that you will make a big impact on those decisions. We are fully invested in React on the frontend and Scala on the backend (but no Scala experience needed).

NStack | London, UK | Full time | Onsite | Functional Developers | http://nstack.com

Were a building a platform for composable, data-driven microservices using a mixture of Haskell and Linux systems technology (including containers, systemd, dbus), with some typed DSLs, systems code, and distributed systems thrown in.

Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for the next generation of developers to build the next generation of cloud services, and we're doing this by applying the fundamental lessons of programming languages and operating systems to provide an abstraction over infrastructure.

Were looking for talented programmers -- preferably with some knowledge of typed functional languages and *NIX systems programming -- to join our small tech team to make this a reality. Its a challenging role, working on hard problems, but the chance to work with a top technical team and shape a company and product from an early stage.

NStack is funded by top-tier infrastructure investors from the West Coast, and the founders are both technical and ex-YC / academia. Salaries are competitive and include generous stock options. EU applicants welcome (other visas potentially possible), although roles are onsite only. Were looking at a range of positions and experience levels - whether youve just left uni or been hacking for 20 years, if youre interested please get in touch. Any questions please comment, reach out via jobs@nstack.com, or http://nstack.com/careers.

Academia.edu | Full Stack Engineer | San Francisco, CA | Onsite

Academia.edu is addressing two problems:

- Open access. The goal here is to put every academic pdf ever written on the internet, available for free.

- The reproducibility crisis. It has emerged over the last few years that 65-90% of the scientific literature is not reproducible. What this means is that if you try to reproduce the experiments described in a paper, 65-90% of the time you will not get the same findings. This is known as "the reproducibility crisis"

With regard to open access, Academia allows academics to upload papers to Academia, and make them freely available. Academics have uploaded about 14 million pdfs to Academia.edu, and upload about 1 million a month. About 30 million people come to Academia each month to access and share papers.

With regard to reproducibility, we think the way to solve the reproducibility crisis is to build a new peer review system that (a) crowd-sources peer review from the academic community and (b) provides credit to material that journals don't publish (data-sets, code, replications, failed replications).

Academia has built a recommendation system which is the basis of our approach to (a) and (b). We realize that addressing reproducibility is a huge challenge. We need mission-driven engineers to come and help us. We have raised $28 million from Tencent, Khosla Ventures, Spark Capital, and True Ventures. Bijan Sabet from Spark Capital writes "We believe open science is really important. We believe Academia.edu is going to have a profound impact on the world."

We are looking to hire full stack software engineers. Technologies we use include Ruby, Rails, Postgres, DynamoDB, React. Our office is in downtown San Francisco. For more information, visit http://academia.edu/hiring. If you are interested to learn more, please email Richard Price at richard [at] academia.edu

Make a difference with technology: specifically, by fixing healthcare. We're building a real-time data network that allows getting health data from anywhere to anywhere in close to realtime. We roll up this data in a clean RESTful API that developers use to build apps that make peoples' lives better.

We have a whole pile of hard problems, and a team of smart, passionate people that love working on them. We like to work iteratively in small teams, and to give people autonomy and ownership to solve those problems.

Some of the things you'd be working on:

 - Mapping and indexing the world's healthcare data: figuring out where it lives and how to retrieve it - Scaling and optimizing our APIs - Modelling human health - Building our ingestion pipeline - Data engineering and building tools for data science - NLP and Classification - Extracting healthcare data from a wide variety of unstructured, unclean formats - Building intuitive UIs to allow users to find and share their health data
Open positions:

 - Full Stack Engineer (node.js, MongoDB, ElasticSearch, RabbitMQ) https://jobs.lever.co/humanapi/7c411192-551e-4c6c-8133-99d34f17f207 - Frontend Engineer (node.js, React, Redis, ElasticSearch) https://jobs.lever.co/humanapi/f31262f1-6613-455f-96a5-2135a4d6f0d6 - Machine Learning Engineer (node.js, Python, Kafka, Cassandra) https://jobs.lever.co/humanapi/b698a09d-a5f4-4667-a52a-9e8939659b92 - DevOps Engineer (Ansible, Packer, Terraform, Docker, Mesos) https://jobs.lever.co/humanapi/c74886f1-1e50-4323-a846-7ccac5855164

The process: a quick phone screen, a screen-share technical interview, then an onsite to meet with the team and pair with someone on a problem.

We'd love to hear from you even if you don't "fit" one of the job specs -- we hire for people, not roles. Contact us at jobs@humanapi.co - we're really nice!

Clever (YC S12) - San Francisco - onsite

Right now the market for educational software is a mess. Its incredibly difficult for developers to get their products into schools, and its even harder for them to scale. School districts spend tons of money on learning applications, but they have no way of knowing if students are even using the apps theyre purchasing. Teachers know theres great software out there, but relatively simple challenges like getting 30 students logged in at once make using it impossible.

At Clever, were working to change all that. We provide schools with a free API and single sign-on solution that makes using educational apps a breeze. Weve grown fast: after four years, half of all schools in the US (65,000 schools) are using our platform. Our goals are much bigger than that, though. We want to be two things:

-a single place where schools can easily integrate, manage and analyze all the software theyre using, and

-a single identity that students can use to see everything theyve learned across multiple apps.

Were a team of 120 (40 engineers) based in downtown SF, and were looking for engineers who enjoy working in (or would enjoy learning) Go, Node and React. More generally, we want people who are sharp, adaptable, and passionate about improving the way education works for everyone. In particular, were looking for a security-focused software engineer: a creative thinker whod be excited to help keep students data safe.
