I've been a long time supporter of the ACLU. While they're being politicized right now as being anti-Trump, the thing I admire most about them is their consistency in fighting for the rights of everyone. They stick to their principles of free speech and human equality no matter how unpopular the issue or unsavory their client.

A good example is back in the 1930s when the ACLU simultaneously defended the rights of blacks on behalf of the NAACP at the same time as they were fighting for the rights of the Klu Klux Klan to hold rallies calling for the abolition of those rights.

The strength of your convictions are only tested at the extremes. Do you still believe in free speech when it's coming from neo-Nazis? The ACLU do and I deeply respect them for that.

It upsets me to read negative comments about initiatives like this. My assumption is that most people agree that it'd be good for the ACLU to have more funding and to operate in a more efficient, higher leverage manner. If YC can help with that, great! They could be backing other areas instead, or they could be backing nothing. I, for one, am glad they're backing something good.

I don't understand why people often bring up other areas where private money and resources could have gone. When someone says "I support X" (e.g. X = ACLU), they are not saying "I don't support anything that's not X." They are just saying they care about X. If you would prefer to donate your time and resources to another cause, that's great! I'm sure you'd be disappointed if you dedicated yourself to curing diabetes and someone complained because they thought cancer research should be higher priority, or if you offered to hire 10k refugees around the world and people suggested a boycott because they preferred that you hire Americans instead.

Let's not discourage people from trying to make the world better.

I don't know exactly what this means, as the implementation details are hazy, but if this entails substantial support to the ACLU (in terms of lawyers, money, or both), then that is awesome. I donated to the ACLU yesterday and I'm encouraging everyone I know to do the same.

Does YC have a page of their particular positions on various political matters which guides their decisions on which non-profits to support and which ones not to? I'm genuinely interested in reading a "platform" as it were on what YC believes and is willing to support.

So between Peter Thiel and the ACLU, I think we have some 1st rate minds at YC.

Thank you YC. Thank you all so much. On this particular issue, I do not think it is worth engaging with people about its merit or timing. This is a critical moment in history and you are doing something. The velocity of decision-making in the oval office means we literally don't have time to sit down with the cynics right now.

I used to be an ACLU supporter, but stopped after their main objectives switched to more of what I describe as matters of feelings, E.g., whether a man who identifies as a women can use a women's bathroom in Georgia, or whether the term man or women can ever be used at all. In my opinion most the ACLU LGBT agenda has been a useless war on words, yet it's taking on a greater and greater importance in the organization.

Meanwhile constitutionally-guaranteed personal liberties, such as protection against unreasonable search and seizure, seemed to be getting less and less important.

Instead I've switched to funding the EFF, which really does seem at the forefront of constitutional freedoms because it's operating in an area where they are seriously under attack. In the grand scheme of things the EFF seems to be doing much more important and historically relevant work.

This is very timely. In particular, I was happy to see the appeal for help from engineers. I've been brainstorming for the last couple of days about what more I can do to defend the America I want to live in, now that it seems clear that such defense will be necessary. But as a programmer, it's not obvious to me what is the best way for me to do so in the immediate term.

One of the things that's appealing to me about the ACLU in particular is the bipartisan nature of their mission. I'm sure that there are other such organizations out there looking for engineers to help out. Does anyone have such a list?

Heads-up: This going to be a long-ish, semi-OT rant:

To be honest, I feel kind of dumb these days. How I hate admitting that.

I read all the outrageous things Trump said during the Primaries and his election campaign, and I did not really take them seriously, or him. Otto von Bismarck, a German politician once said (or at least I've seen the quote attributed to him, but it seems like something he would say): "People never lie as much as before an election, during a war, or after a hunt." I was hoping that if he got elected, Trump would turn it down a notch. I mean, damn, for once a politician does as she/he promised to, and it's gotta be this guy.

What makes me feel dumb is that I could have seen it coming. There's enough people that said so. Smart people, smarter than me, certainly. I hate pulling a Godwin, but I fear lots of people in Germany must have felt like this after you-know-who rose to power. It's scary.

And I am a German, living in Germany. Let me point out, as an example, that guy in Hungary, whose name I keep forgetting. Hungary is much closer than any US territory (unless you count the military bases in Germany), and quite frankly, I don't really give a damn who is president of Hungary. Or prime minister or whatever.

With the USA, it is different. They are the most powerful country on earth, for better or worse. The risk of a military confrontation with Russia is going to be a lot lower than with Hillary, I think. But that seems to be about the only glimmer of hope[1]. Besides that, Trump turns out to be even more disgusting than I would have expected.

Y Combinator got quite a bit of flak when Peter Thiel donated more money to Trump's campaign than some people make in a lifetime, and with good reason, IMHO. So at least it's good to read about this. I hope the ACLU makes the best of this and makes life as uncomfortable for Trump and his circle of "advisors" as they are able to within the boundaries laid down in the US constitution.

The world has seen much worse people than Trump come and go, and in the long run it's all water under the bridge. But in the short run, people have suffered and died in quantities that boggle the mind. Let's hope the world gets lucky this time.

[1] 'bout the only other positive aspect I can make out right now is that reading the news is not going to get boring anytime soon.

I feel the pain of the underprivileged americans, in particular our African-American brothers and sisters. However, there is a difference however between the top leadership of our country making explicit decisions to pass legislation to exclude groups of people that is at odds with the constitution and established legislation, and local government and law enforcement running cities in an unfair way.

ACLU is valuable in both situations, but in particular to fight the current executive branch that requires massive manpower, knowledge and dedication.

Although I think the American Civil Liberties Union is incredibly valuable and I'm glad they have a lot more money now to fight for the American people, I'm questioning all of this.

Where was the outpouring of funding when black people were being gunned down by cops from West Coast organizations? Where has YCombinator been as our own impoverished African-Americans are getting slaughtered in the streets of Chicago? Why weren't we funding the ACLU to help these people? I haven't seen Google talk about this, or AirBnB offer support to widows of veterans whose spouse commits suicide and has left them with nothing.

I feel for immigrants from war-torn countries, especially having been there myself. Maybe I'm too cynical and look at these moves (AirBnB, Uber, Google, etc...) as marketing moves. I wish we cared more about homeless people, people in West Virginia and Kentucky who have lost their jobs and got drenched in opiates without any protests from anybody, or veterans who can't pay their VA bills. Idk.

I know this comment will be unpopular, and that's ok. I tend to care more about those who I feel (whether true or not) are being left behind because that's who I am.

Technical issue with the Wufoo form [0]: on iOS Chrome, the input fields somehow end up triggering autofill with first name / last name. The second field is for email address, not last name, however.

Looking at the source, the best I can come up with is that the email field's 'id' attribute is set to 'title2', and maybe that's used elsewhere on the internet in a context where I've entered a last name?

Also, when I hit 'back' and corrected the name, the submit button became a (clickable) no-op. Reloading the form and re-submitting worked fine.

Not that I'm against helping the ACLU (or any non-profit for that matter), but they don't seem like a good fit, as an organization, to an accelerator of tech startups - it's not entrepreneurial, not technology oriented, far older then YC and doesn't seek (and can't really accept) VC funding.

Why, oh why, has this been posted here? Is there possibly a single institution that serves as more of a lightning rod for anger in the USA, in any political direction, than the ACLU? Would a similar article be posted about the NRA, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, or Southern Poverty Law Center (all which, along with ACLU, do excellent work for their contributors/supporters)?

From the ycombinator Hacker News Guidelinesat https://news.ycombinator.com/newsguidelines.html

"Off-Topic: Most stories about politics, or crime, or sports, unless they're evidence of some interesting new phenomenon." What part of "politics" is this not?

This topic now is yet another gathering point for all unhappy with the election results. Perhaps this forum will allow those discontents to vent to sufficient degree to restore themselves to adulthood and return to their work, home and friends with a more balanced attitude required of a citizen in a republic. But I fear it will simply be another place for them to reinforce their anger and distrust. It's probably a good thing that liberals, in general, avoid firearms, otherwise there might be fighting in the streets already.

sama, I hope you will consider temporarily withdrawing YC's involvement (as an entity) with the ACLU.

I know that you mean well, and that you want to help. Your work on voteplz, and your blog posts during the election (and since) all demonstrate that.

However, this announcement -- especially now, with the ACLU raising $24 million over the weekend -- feels like "whitewashing" to me. The announcement lacks a number for the amount funded, so it must not have been big enough to be material (probably $XX,000).

I am not comfortable with Peter Thiel's involvement with the Trump campaign. And, by extension, I am not comfortable with sama's and YC's position to continue working with Thiel. I don't feel safe, given the current political environment. I feel like this announcement sounds like a way to "make up" for not cutting ties with Thiel. Basically, it looks like a PR move in YC's interest instead of the ACLU's interest -- something like the Ronald McDonald charity, or Google donating Chromebooks to schools, or an oil company donating to a charity that replants the rainforest. I worry that many others (especially immigrants, women, and people of color) may feel the same way.

I don't expect sama or YC to cut ties with Thiel -- sama has already given reasons why he doesn't wish to: https://twitter.com/sama/status/787834428064083968

But I believe that, so long as Thiel continues to be involved with YC, that YC being associated with the ACLU will harm the ACLU, its brand, and its ability to fundraise. And -- even with the brightest minds in SV -- I'm not confident in YC's ability to help the ACLU enough to offset that harm.

I really wish that I didn't feel this way about the announcement. We really need to be working together to fight to protect our democracy.

(Edit: Rewrote they -> I in Paragraph 4.)

Site's intermittent. Here's a copy:

We are delighted to be funding the ACLU as a non-profit[0] in our Winter 2017 batch.

The ACLU has always been important, but has a particularly important role[1] right now. We are honored to be able to help, and we will send some of our team to New York for the rest of the batch to assist.

The ACLU will have full access to the Y Combinator network and community, and they will present at Demo Day in March.

We are hopeful that the YC community will join us in supporting this important work. In particular, if youre an engineer and want to spend some time helping them out, let us know.[2] Well keep you updated on opportunities.

Also, please consider donating to the ACLU.[3]

I'll post a comment from ProductHunt, which might give a bit more context to where the founder sees this going, and why cash rides make sense under certain circumstances he designed the app for:

[] I have gone to the founder's blog and it provides a better understanding of where he sees it going: Uber (and similar apps) will never reach many remote villages, cities and regions around the world (and don't have to), but technology could greatly help the local communities in solving their transportation problems that are as "simple" as getting from point A to point B with no other feasible options available.

My concern with this is the problem of ensuring the safety of the person driving the cab and the real identity of the rider.

Lots of drivers will be reluctant because they can be stiffed on the bill. Lots of passengers will be reluctant to use it due to the inherent risk of riding with what is essentially a stranger.

>, pay cash upon arrival.

Paying cash is a non-starter. I haven't been to a bank ATM in over 10 years. I don't even know what my card's secret PIN is to make a cash withdrawal. Being virtually cashless by using credit-cards for everything is very common in professional circles.

A credit-card is simpler and the exact line-item amount showing up on my monthly statement helps me keep track of travel expenses. (Also, many credit cards transactions will download to the Quicken ledger for people that use that personal finance software.)

Paying by credit also helps keep drivers accountable and reduces fraud.

About the trust and reputation issue, I think blockchain technologies could play an important role for decentralized services like this.

I would like to see a multipurpose reputation / trust system based on the blockchain, exposing all the needed features as a simple library and / or HTTP API, ready to be implemented by apps and websites.

I think we are still in a period where a lot of products are built either in a centralized way, or all on the blockchain and decentralized technologies (like IPFS). It makes sense as we are still in the experimentation phase, but it could change in the near future. People could start using the blockchain where it is the most efficient today, as a brick part of a product (e.g. to build a solid decentralized reputation system), instead of being the foundation layer of the product.

Completely disregarding the rest of the page/service/post I kinda dislike that Telegram is being touted as the most secure messenger out there. That's not even close to true.

Stripe doesn't really cost that much; you could support card payments and pass the stripe fees along to both parties (50/50 to the passenger and driver)

I don't think this is the right approach. IMO, what we need a platform for regional driver co-ops. You obviously wouldn't have the consistency of Uber and Lyft, but the service would take only a tiny cut since they don't have to provide anything other than the app. When you want to hail a car, you'd be able to choose from any local services, which are responsible for the vetting and insurance of drivers. It has its flaws, obviously, but such driver co-ops already exist in some places, so I think it could work.

(2) needs to work without a dataplan if to be viable in rural areas (Silence, the SMS-fork of Signal)

(3) needs to easily accept a variety of payment mechanisms, including credit cards, PayPal(s), and crypto-currency, so can interface with people who don't use cash.

(4) needs to have a distributed p2p reputation system (hello blockchain).

The public report is nice and we can see a sequence of mishaps from it, that shouldn't have been allowed to happen but which (unfortunately) are not that uncommon. I've done my share of mistakes, I know what's like to be in emergency mode and too tired to think straight, so I'm going to refrain from criticizing individual actions.

What I'm going to criticize is the excess of transparency:

You absolutely DO NOT publish postmortems referencing actions by NAMED individuals, EVER.

From reading the whole report it's clear that the group is at fault, not a single individual. But most people won't read the whole thing, even less people will try to understand the whole picture. That's why failures are always attributed publicly to the whole team, and actions by individuals are handled internally only.

And they're making it even worse by livestreaming the thing! It's like having your boss looking over your shoulder but a million times worse...

I'm a huge Gitlab fan. But I long ago lost faith in their ability to run a production service at scale.

Nothing important of mine is allowed to live exclusively on Gitlab.com.

It seems like they are just growing too fast for their level of investment in their production environment.

One of the only reasons I was comfortable using Gitlab.com in the first place was because I knew I could migrate off it without too much disruption if I needed to (yay open source!). Which I ended up forced to do on short notice when their CI system became unusable for people who use their own runners (overloaded system + an architecture which uses a database as a queue. ouch.).

Which put an end to what seemed like constant performance issues. It was overdue, and made me sleep well about things like backups :).

A while back one of their database clusters went into split brain mode, which I could tell as an outsider pretty quickly... but for those on the inside, it took them a while before they figured it out. My tweet on the subject ended up helping document when the problem had started.

If they are going to continue offering Gitlab.com I think they need to seriously invest in their talent. Even with highly skilled folks doing things efficiently, at some point you just need more people to keep up with all the things that need to be done. I know it's a hard skillset to recruit for - us devopish types are both quite costly and quite rare - but I think operating the service as they do today seriously tarnishes the Gitlab brand.

I don't like writing things like this because I know it can be hard to hear/demoralizing. But it's genuine feedback that, taken in the kind spirit is intended, will hopefully be helpful to the Gitlab team.

If you're a sys admin long enough, it will eventually happen to you that you'll execute a destructive command on the wrong machine. I'm fortunate that it happened to me very early in my career, and I made two changes in how I work at the suggestion of a wiser SA.

1) Before executing a destructive command, pause. Take your hands off the keyboard and perform a mental check that you're executing the right command on the right machine. I was explicitly told to literally sit on my hands while doing this check, and for a long time I did so. Now I just remove my hands from the keyboard and lower them to my side while re-considering my action.

2) Make your production shells visually distinct. I setup staging machine shells with a yellow prompt and production shells with a red prompt, with full hostname in the prompt. You can also color your terminal window background. Or use a routine such as: production terminal windows are always on the right of the screen. Close/hide all windows that aren't relevant to the production task at hand. It should always be obvious what machine you're executing a commmand on and especially whether it is production. (edit: I see this is in outage the remeditation steps.)

One last thing: I try never to run 'rm -rf /some/dir' straight out. I'll almost always rename the directory and create a new directory. I don't remove the old directory till I confirm everything is working as expected. Really, 'rm -rf' should trigger red-alerts in your brain, especially if a glob is involved, no matter if you're running it in production or anywhere else. DANGER WILL ROBINSON plays in my brain every time.

Lastly, I'm sorry for your loss. I've been there, it sucks.

>3. SH: It looks like pg_dump may be failing because PostgreSQL 9.2 binaries are being run instead of 9.6 binaries. This happens because omnibus only uses Pg 9.6 if data/PG_VERSION is set to 9.6, but on workers this file does not exist. As a result it defaults to 9.2, failing silently. No SQL dumps were made as a result. Fog gem may have cleaned out older backups.

>4. Disk snapshots in Azure are enabled for the NFS server, but not for the DB servers. The synchronisation process removes webhooks once it has synchronised data to staging. Unless we can pull these from a regular backup from the past 24 hours they will be lost The replication procedure is super fragile, prone to error, relies on a handful of random shell scripts, and is badly documented

I remember when we accidentally deleted our customers' data. That was the worst feeling I ever had running our business. It was about 4% of our entire storage set and had to let our customers know and start the resyncs. Those first 12 hours of panic were physically and emotionally debilitating - more than they have the right to be. I learned an important lesson that day: Business is business and personal is personal. I remember it like it was yesterday, the momement I conciously decided I would no longer allow business operations determine my physical health (stress level, heart rate, sleep schedule).

For what it's worth, it was a lesson worth learning despite what seemed like catastrophic world-ending circumstances.

We survived, and GitLab will too. GitLab has been an extraordinary service since the beginning. Even if their repos were to get wiped (which seems not to be the case), I'd still continue supporting them (after I re-up'd from my local repos). I appreciate their transparency and hope that they can turn this situation into a positive lesson in the long run.

Best of luck to GitLab sysops and don't forget to get some sleep and relax.

I applaud their forthrightness and hope that it's recoverable so that most of the disaster is averted.

To me the most illuminating lesson is that debugging 'weird' issues is enough of a minefield; doing it in production is fraught with even more peril. Perhaps we as users (or developers with our 'user' hat on) expect so much availability as to cause companies to prioritize it so high, but (casually, without really being on the hook for any business impact) I'd say availability is nice to have, while durability is mandatory. To me, an emergency outage would've been preferable to give the system time to catch up or recover, with the added bonus of also kicking off the offending user causing spurious load.

My other observation is that troubleshooting -- the entire workflow -- is inevitably pure garbage. We engineer systems to work well -- these days often with elaborate instrumentation to spin up containers of managed services and whatnot, but once they no longer work well we have to dip down to the lowest adminable levels, tune obscure flags, restart processes to see if it's any better, muck about with temp files, and use shell commands that were designed 40 years ago for when it was a different time. This is a terrible idea. I don't have an easy solution for the 'unknown unknowns', but the collective state of 'what to do if this application is fucking up' feels like it's in the stone ages compared to what we've accomplished on the side of when things are actually working.

As I read the report I notice a lot of PostgreSQL "backup" systems depend on snapshotting from the FS & Rsync. This may work for database write logs, but it certainly will corrupt live git repositories that use local file system locking guarantees. NFS also requires special attention (a symlink lock) as writes can be acknowledged concurrently for byte offsets unless NFSv4 locking & compatible storage software is used.

I managed to get the data back though, as Oracle was still running and had the files open. "lsof | grep '(deleted)'" and /proc/<ORACLEPIDHERE>/fd/* saved my life. I managed to stop all connections to the database, copy all the (deleted) files into a temp directory, stop Oracle, copy the files to their rightful place, and start up Oracle, with no data lost.

Amazing document. Thank you for sharing. Taking it back to my company to make sure we can learn from it and to know what to check (like our logical backups... I know we've seen issues with our 9.5 servers and RHEL7 defaulting to 9.1 or 9.2 on our host where we take the backups from! Verifying exit code here we come...)

@sytse, I noticed you _do_ use streaming WAL replication, but I didn't notice any mention of attempting Point In Time Recovery. Have you taken a look into archiving the WAL files in S3? Those, along with frequent pg_basebackup's (frequent because replaying a WAL file has been painfully slow for us) could allow you to point in time recover to either a timestamp, or a transaction (and before or after). https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.6/static/continuous-archiv...

We use https://github.com/wal-e/wal-e to manage our uploading to swift (no S3 at our company heh) and then inhouse tooling to build a recovery.conf. Note we actually have our asynchronous followers work off of this system too so they're not taking bandwidth from the primary.

(note this is can lead to ~ 1 WAL file of data loss, but is acceptable for us.)

I doubt I could be of any help, since reading the report definitely shows y'all having an up on me with pg knowledge, but if there's anything I can do / talk about feel free to reach out.

This is why you have lots of copies of your data. Matt Raney has a great talk about designing for failure that includes details on Uber's "worst outage ever." It too involved postgresql replication and mistaking on host for another, but they didn't lose any data because they had more than a dozen live copies of their database.


This isn't an alternative to working backups, of course, but it is an additional safety net. Plus it can give you a lot more options when handling an incident.

I haven't seen or done anything of this scale before, but I did have a very sobering moment while working on a large online retailers stack as a systems engineer.

We were rolling out a new stack in another data center across the country and before replication went live, I decided to connect and check things out. Our chef work hadn't completed for the database hosts, so I decided to install some OS updates by hand using pssh on all the MySQL hosts and saw a kernel update. So I thought, the DC isn't live yet, no replication is running, I'll just restart these servers. So I did using pssh again and then I caught a glimps at the domain in some output and my face went completely pale. I restarted the production databases... all of them. And they all had 256GB of ecc memory. It takes a very long time for each of those machines to POST.

I contacted the client and said the maintenance page was my fault and was fully expecting to be fired on the spot, but they just grilled me about being careful in the future, and then laughed it off.

I've been the most careful ever since then. It scared me straight. Always make sure you are in the right environment before you do anything that requires a write operation.

I'm commenting a bit late, but I hope it's still read by the gitlab team.

First, you kept heads and didn't turn on each other. That's a major success, and gives me more confidence in gitlab. The rest you can improve on onlyif you have this right.

Second, I'm sure you've gotten the message to test your backups and recovery plan. It's a good time to read the Google SRE book, and consider how to put together full integration tests that build up a db, back it up, nuke the original, and recover from the db. With containers this isn't actually awful to do.

But I didn't see much mentioned about load tests. A few simple scripts that hit your server (or test instance!) hard can help you find points where things fall apart under load. Even if you don't have a good way to gracefully do anything else other than alert a human, you can figure out what to monitor and how to make sure your backup/recovery plans can deal with a shit-ton of spammer data suddenly in your DB.

This is painful to read. It's easy to say that they they should have tested their backups better, and so on, but there is another lesson here, one that's far more important and easily missed.

When doing something really critical (such as playing with the master database late at night) ALWAYS work with a checklist. Write down WHAT you are going to do, and if possible, talk to a coworker about it so you can vocalize the steps. If there is no coworker, talk to your rubber ducky or stapler on your desk. This will help you catch mistakes. Then when the entire plan looks sensible, go through the steps one by one. Don't deviate from the plan. Don't get distracted and start switching between terminal windows. While making the checklist ask yourself if what you're doing is A) absolutely necessary and B) risks making things worse. Even when the angry emails are piling up you can't allow that pressure to cloud your judgment.

Every startup has moments when last-minute panic-patching of a critical part of the server infrastructure is needed, but if you use a checklist you're not likely to mess up badly, even when tired.

First of all, I want to say: I think the GitLab people are incredible. They're open and transparent about everything they do, and I think that in a world dominated by GitHub, the fact that GitLab exists is hugely important to decentralization and the continued march of open source. This document continues to demonstrate how the GitLab people are great, transparent people.

That being said, this is why you shouldn't entrust a cloud service to keep your data safe: "So in other words, out of 5 backup/replication techniques deployed none are working reliably or set up in the first place."

My backups work. I know they work, because I run them and I test them. People entrusting cloud services to have good backups cannot say that.

"The replication procedure is super fragile, prone to error, relies on a handful of random shell scripts, and is badly documented"

This is true of many databases, but in my experience is particularly true of postgres. It's a marvelous single-instance product, but I've never really found any replication/ha tech for it that I've been that happy with. I've always been a bit nervous about postgres-backed products for this very reason.

I'd be interested what other people's take on this is, though.

I'm curious to know what strategy has been developed out of this regarding delivery of spam through creation of snippets. In the original GitLab First Incident report it noted "spammers were hammering the database by creating snippets, making it unstable". So many easily accessible platforms are out there that this method of spamming could be used on that it seems like a necessity to evaluate current workflows and identify where checks/balances can be inserted that would prevent this from happening again. Short of removal of snippets, there must be some method of snippet grepping that would put a pause on suspicious snippets, preventing the bulk of submissions along the lines of what GitLab initially received.

>2. Regular backups seem to also only be taken once per 24 hours, though YP has not yet been able to figure out where they are stored. According to JN these dont appear to be working, producing files only a few bytes in size.

>3. SH: It looks like pg_dump may be failing because PostgreSQL 9.2 binaries are being run instead of 9.6 binaries. This happens because omnibus only uses Pg 9.6 if data/PG_VERSION is set to 9.6, but on workers this file does not exist. As a result it defaults to 9.2, failing silently. No SQL dumps were made as a result. Fog gem may have cleaned out older backups.

>5. Our backups to S3 apparently dont work either: the bucket is empty

I think we've all seen that with some kind of report or backup or that's regularly reported: an empty file or none at all is generated due to some silent error.

I highly recommend creating a monitoring check for file size for each automatically generated file.

At $work, we also generate quite a few config files (for Radius, DHCP servers, web servers, mail servers....). For those we have a mechanism that diffs the old and the new version, and rejects the new version if the diff exceeds a pre-defined percentage of the file size, escalating the decision to a human.

Funny that I haven't seen the following anecdote yet: One is none, two is one (== none). AFAICT there were only 2 Postgres instances? What gives? How would you ever feel comfortable when one goes down?

How we deal with recovery:

- run DB servers on ZFS- built a tool to orchestrate snapshotting (every 15 minutes) using an external Mutex to distribute snapshot creation for best recover accuracy. You could also have increased retention over time like:

- keep 6 snapshots of 5 minutes- 4 hourly- 1 daily- 1 weekly

Recover: choose point in time closest to fckup, the tool automatically elects the DB with closest (earlier than given time) snapshot. All other slaves are restored before that point in time and roll forward to the active state of new "master".

Instead of executing worst case recovery plans by copying data to at least 6 (minimal) db read slaves we can recover in minutes with minimal data loss (especially when you consider downtime == data loss).

There are cases where a setup like this would be a no go (think of companies where having lost transactions are absolutely devastating) but I don't think Gitlab is one of those.

Side effect of ZFS is being able to ship blocks of data as offsite backups (instead of dumping), able to `zpool import` anywhere, checksumming, compression etc etc..

So, maybe a stupid question from a frontend dev who doesn't deal with these systems at all, but aren't these systems usually part of a cluster with read replicas? Blowing away the contents of one box shouldn't destroy the cluster right? I thought the primary/secondary pattern was really common among relational databases and failover boxes and other measures were standard practice. Was the command executed on all machines? Is the cluster treated as one file system? Please excuse the ignorance.

First off, my heartfelt commiserations for the GitLab team here. My suggestion: Start watching an hour-long video; the rsync will finish right when it gets to the good part!

I wonder if a future project might be to have the DB-stored stuff use Git as a replication back-end. Like, for example, having each issue be a directory, and individual comments be JSON files. It would never (normally) be the data store "of record" (the DB would), but maybe that would work as a backup?

The recovery process seems very slow with ~50mbit/sec. Could that be an issue related to cloud providers? I heard that issue quite often when dealing with AWS/Azure. Even HDDs should have much higher throughput for that kind of transfer.

If they had dedicated hardware in 2 datacentres on the same continent, copying between those servers should easily be possible at 250mbit/s or more (from my experience). Especially as they seem to copy at the US east coast, where it's now night.

For me, that would be a serious issue dealing with cloud providers. If I have a server with a 250mbit connection, I expect to be able to copy data between datacentres at that speed. And I never had problems with OVH, Hetzner and the like.

This is very important people - calling everyone who voted for Trump a racist homophobe, a moron, and not deserving of the franchise is not going to help anything.

First, it's not a "ban". It's a temporary suspension until new vetting procedures are put in place.

Second, it's not "Muslim". Muslims from all other countries (some of them pretty large, e.g. Indonesia and Pakistan), will experience no change in their ability to enter the US.

Other than Iran (which imo shouldn't be on the list) we're bombing and droning all of those countries at the moment. It's insane to accept military age males from there for entry into the country, particularly if information about them is very sparse (which in war torn countries it typically is).

But there's another aspect of this that baffles me. Somehow Sam has no issues with democrats totally destabilizing the Middle East, and funding/arming ISIS to depose Assad. Yet the moment Trump attempts to mitigate the negative side effects of that to this country, "it's time to take a stand". The time to take a stand was back when Obama and Clinton armed extremists in Iraq and Syria -- years before Trump.

This is the same kind of bullshit that's lost Hillary the election and got us here in the first place. It might have worked in the '90s to get a gold medal for Rosa Parks. It will not work in 2017 to make Trump back off his core message.

The problem here is not that your side isn't loud enough and can't get political attention for an issue. The problem is that the opposing side is too organized and too strong and already has a decided stance about your issue.

Being more strident won't help. Ostracizing people who have links to the opposing side will positively hurt.

Instead of doing all this "yell out louder" crap, any serious opposition should rather do some serious soul searching to figure out how to win back key constituencies. The only people who need to be ostracized are the idiots who got us here in the first place.

I think that the only way to fix this long-term is by winning the hearts and minds of those who think this ban is a good idea, or who are ambivalent about it. Unfortunately, those of us who have been shrilly opposing every move Trump has ever made are perhaps the most poorly positioned to do that. Trump has successfully demonized the voice of the mainstream media and costal cultural elites, and if you're perceived as being in that group, your objections are likely to fall on deaf ears.

We need to find a way to rebuild bridges between different tribes in America, so that we can have a reasonable dialog. I don't pretend to know how to do this, but I'd love to have a discussion about how to get it done. I think that is the only way to keep Trump or someone else like him from capturing the voice of the people long term.

I am affected personally by this. I have extended family members from Indonesia and Malaysia in the US who are still on Green Card. Although those countries aren't affected by the ban, who knows when Trump will decide to change his mind at his whim.

But the time for talk has passed. I don't think very much is going to happen because Trump is empowered by his election victory, and he won't listen to anyone. Has he ever listened to anyone, even during his celebrity-only days? To think that you can actively engage him in a conversation is not the way to do this.

What is needed is to prepare for the 2018 and 2020 elections RIGHT NOW. We need an organized social media structure where all of the positive, democracy-pro candidates in every electoral district gets publicized and supported. EDUCATE YOUNG PEOPLE WITH GREAT POLITICAL CANDIDATES AND MOTIVATE THEM TO VOTE. I'm not talking about just voting for the Democrats. Democrats are just as bad as the Republicans. We need a new voice that actually cares about progressive, democratic values, and actually believes in what they say. Not the same, tired politicians that play us for fools and leave us with the best of two evils.

Organize now, smash the two-party oligarchy and elect REAL POLITICIANS, hopefully young people that care about the US, not people who want to enrich themselves from the teat of government funding. You could argue that Trump was that candidate for half of Americans, as well as Sanders for the other (nearly) half. We need fresh blood, and we need to start now.

The only way to stop Trump is to silence him by breaking up the Republican Congress majority, and it's only in 2 years.

- Demand to see the detailed plan for TrumpCare. What's it going to cost us? What will it do to our employees? Where are the details? That's what lobbyists are paid to find out. Employers have a big stake in this.

- Demand to see the tariff plan. So far, it's all talk, but soon it will be legislation. This has huge impacts for many businesses. Business planning and investment will stall until the details are settled. Already, you don't want to build a factory in China or Mexico. On the other side, will there be efforts to make it easier to sell into China?

- About that infrastructure thing. What kinds of projects will be supported? Roads? Internet access? Pothole repair?

- How serious is the administration about not employing illegal aliens? Will employer sanctions be increased or more stringently enforced? Will employers be going to jail? On the other side, will the enforcement be effective enough to force growers to use robotic picking? Is it time to get behind ag startups like Abundant Robotics? Get into robotic floor cleaning for commercial buildings?

- Will there be tax incentives for investing in communities in rural America? If so, how much, and when will they become available?

- Will Glass-Stegall come back? That was a Trump campaign promise, and it's in the Republican platform.

Every one of those is a real business issue, and business needs to know what's going to happen.

A majority of his voters did vote for Trump because they support his views on immigration. It's why they voted for him. To deny that is to simply deny reality just like Trump does on a daily basis.

Honest question - What will statements by tech CEOs do? Trump has a mandate given to him by the people of your country against the very elites this post is appealing to. The politicians are with him because they want to keep their power.

And am I misremembering all these powerful tech CEOs went grovelling to meet Trump and hoping to have a foot in the door with the new administration with Thiel?

These are turbulent times.

He clearly stated he would make strong policies regarding immigration. The American people voted for him knowing this and he's following through on it.

I'd say Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States is a fitting name given everything he has said up to this point.

Whether or not you agree, this looks like the democratic process to me. Taking action against his policies after election is obviously fine, but if you cared so deeply then why didn't you do this rallying call before he got elected? He is doing exactly what he said he would do and what the people voted him in for.

* PS: I'm not endorsing Donald Trump's decisions at all.

Shouldn't we have been taking a stand against Obama who destabilized the region, was dropping bombs there and arming the "rebels" who had a revolving door relationship with ISIS and other such groups there.

Refugees didn't come from a vacuum and it wasn't some natural disaster. They started streaming in because the West including US has been meddling and destabilizing that part of the world.

Unfortunately it seems profiling to prevent terrorism has worked ok for Israel recently. It is not something pleasant and nice, but so far it seems there have been deadlier and more frequent terror act committed by radical Muslims in Europe than in Israel. People see the news from Europe and they don't want that here. A closer vetting of refugees from that region seems reasonable and letting them in unchecked seem irresponsible.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions. But when you openly support a candidate who likes to "grab [women] by the pussy", and now is making headway into some sort of Muslim ban which was a campaign headline, how will female and muslim applicants feel if they know part of their process might be controlled by someone who finds this acceptable?

Many products of Silicon Valley and Hollywood companies are simply blocked in China. Mainly to protect Chinese young companies. As far I known Google is completely blocked in China. Hollywood movies are also not freely distributed in China. And for some reason it is Trump accused of acting against free trade. What should be the right reaction for Chinese protectionism? More know-how transfer to the land of democracy?

Easiest way to take a stand is to be logically consistent about federal power - which means be against it always and not just when the opposition party is in charge.

If 2/3 of the country can't agree that it needs to apply to the whole country then it's a state policy and not a federal one. Embrace the 10th amendment and make nullification a common act and not some rare that people scorn. It's the agree to disagree amendment. Push it's use and you can unite this country again because half the country won't be able to impose themselves on the other half every 4 years.

Amusing how Silicon Valley leadership is now bleeding their hearts out when legal immigrants from some countries are discriminated against. This same crowd had stood by silently when many of their workers - legal immigrants from India and China - had been discriminated against for many years in the name of per-country-green-card-quotas.

How is "we chose to discriminate against Muslim majority countries" any different from "we chose to discriminate against populous countries"? Both look arbitrary to me.

So Trump is a racist homophobe but he also won the elections: straight and fair.

downandout 5 days ago 1 reply      
I think that most Americans, even many Trump voters, disagree with this specific action. The problem we have now is that the left and the press have declared every single thing Trump has done both before and after the election as the worst thing that has ever befallen our nation. The press has left both Trump and the country tone-deaf.

Donald Trump is a man extremely concerned with his popularity and public image. If the media were to present a balanced and fair portrayal of the positive (or non-negative) things he does, he would be able to gauge how unpopular actions like this ban are and would probably listen to the message. But the press simply cannot contain itself - CNN, for example, has turned into HuffPo with a cable channel.

In short, the universally negative coverage of every breath Trump takes has actually empowered him. Trump will do some good things, such as making it less punitive for large corporations like Apple to repatriate foreign cash and invest it here, and he will do some bad things, like this temporary travel ban. The media will treat it all negatively, which gives him carte blanche to ignore all forms of criticism and defeats the entire purpose of the free press.

But frankly I've lost hope in any political process. I know this is a grim message, but perhaps standing idle is exactly what needs to be done.

I fear people now vote out of frasutration, and leave it to someone else to make the right choice and cancel out their vote. Perhaps it's time for everyone to realise the full force of their voting power, and perhaps it's time to trust the powers to be. That breaking social contracts will be detrimental to The society in the long run and hope that voters will realise this.

My pessimistic two cents.

> But the executive order from yesterday titled Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States is tantamount to a Muslim ban and requires objection. I am obviously in favor of safety and rules, but broad-strokes actions targeted at a specific religious group is the wrong solution, and a first step toward a further reduction in rights.

I see this mistake a lot. "Muslim" isn't intended to target a certain religion here; it refers to citizenship status with problematic countries that happen to be predominantly Muslim. I support the "Muslim ban", but would be surprised if Trump tried to target Muslim US citizens(especially 3rd-generation US citizens, to avoid all doubt).

You might oppose the immigration controls, but it's nothing more than a rhetorical trick to say they violate religious freedom, so that you can bring up the first amendment. I don't believe the first amendment offers any protection with regards to citizenship status.

Bravo to Sam Altman for focusing on a way to talk about immigration that will resonate outside Silicon Valley. The full-strength SV mindset plays very well in the 650 area code ... but it's less effective and sometimes downright counter-productive in a national context.

Here's the lead story on Breitbart today, demonizing Mark Zuckerberg for his position on immigration. http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/01/28/sheriff-clarke-im-... I'm sharing it, not because I agree with a single word of it, but because it's in the mix. To convince the current Congress (or the emerging Supreme Court) of the merits of the pro-immigration case, the argument needs to be made in a way that polarizes less and enlightens more.

I think Sam is right that employees will have to provide some of the push, the New York Times article I read on this earlier mentioned an Iraqi Facebook employee in Seattle who can no longer go to Vancouver BC to visit his family for instance, so this effects us and our colleagues directly, not abstractly. I would suggest we all try and start bottom up pressure within our organizations to denounce the immingration ban, tech has always been pretty pro immigration (not always for noble reasons) so this shouldn't be a difficult sell.

They contacted our local congressman, kept me employed, and even paid me for the time I could not work (two months), at a time when they were a struggling start-up. I know I am not the only immigrant who has experienced the incredible generosity of this country. For beneficiaries like us, it is all the more important to speak up, and take actions to welcome and support the next generation that wants a shot at the American Dream.

This will be fought on many fronts and is much bigger than immigration. We stand to have surveillance bolstered, restriction in our movements, loss of input in our governments behavior & worse.

I don't really give a shit what you think of Hillary, because she did not needlessly block my family from coming to me. Your guy did that. And he is capable of doing it because of you.

There is nothing 'mindlessly nasty' here. The central theme of the Trump campaign, and now the Trump administration, is right-wing virtue signaling with no consideration for the effects those actions would have on real actual human beings. This shitty situation is exactly what everyone said would happen if he got elected, and you elected him anyway. There is no room for interpretation here. Hillary is a straw man. You elected a man who is causing American citizens active trauma and the best I can hope for you and those like you is that one day you at least realize what you have done, and take responsibility for it, instead of this weak-kneed "well I only support SOME of his policies" apologetics.

You won. The least you can do is develop a fucking spine.

What Trumpf has done here is so far beyond the pale I think you have to look toward tinpot dictatorships to find a comparison. This is not a disagreement about tax policy, trade, healthcare, etc. Rather, this is an illegitimate, unqualified con-man who due to our anachronistic electoral system wound up as president despite the majority of Americans opposing him.

It's now clear that Trump wasn't kidding and actually intends to follow through on his promises to ethnically cleanse America of Muslims, latinos and various other scapegoats.

Therefore, the solution is extremely simple. Trump cannot continue to be President and we need every institution of our society -- our courts, congress, businesses, media, schools, etc -- to put aside petty partisan differences and unite on this point.

Now that we have full knowledge that Trump is every bit the white-supremacist fascist he campaigned as, it cannot remain socially acceptable to continue to support him.

The people who have supported him are complicit in ethnic cleansing and their beliefs are absolutely incompatible with the our core American ideals of multiculturalism, freedom-of-religion, equality and diversity.

Trump needs to be removed from power and in our personal, familial and professional lives we need to make it our mission to stamp out the hatred and intolerance which fuelled the rise of this white-supremascist cancer which we if turns out we never fully excised.

I think that one of the main issues of politics is the lack of real time data. There should be a website where people can vote every day (I'm not sure what exactly I mean by vote, I guess the bare minimum would be "i'm content with current political situation" and "i'm not content with current political situation").

Idk if this could take off but i feel like it could become a tool for voicing discontent and seeing some of these numbers of how many other people are voting could lead to something more.

One of the fundamental instruments of dictatorships is deceiving the public about how many other people are dissatisfied with the regime. If you know for a fact that 9/10 of the population is extremely dissatisfied with the regime, you can topple these regimes.

Dan Primack summarised this well; Uber failed on messaging:

"Uber has done a lot of questionable things over the years, but its actions this past weekend vis-a-vis Trump's immigration ban weren't among them. An actual timeline from Saturday, which may differ from what you saw on social media:

4:20pm ET: CEO Travis Kalanick sent email to employees. It stopped short of explicitly opposing the ban, but did say: (1) The company would identify and compensate affected drivers. (2) Kalanick will raise the issue of how the "ban will impact many innocent people" this Friday during the first meeting of Trump's so-called CEO Council. This email was posted a short time later to Kalanick's public Facebook page.

4:55pm ET: NY Taxi Workers union called for a work stoppage at JFK airport from 6pm-7pm. Uber does not suspend its own service, but also does not send out any promotions.

7:36pm ET: Uber NYC sends out a tweet, saying that surge pricing to and from JFK has been turned off.

The claim that Uber was trying to 'break the strike' by sending out its surge pricing tweet is belied by the timing (i.e., sent after the strike was set to end). And while it is true that Kalanick has agreed to be on Trump's CEO council, it's also true that execs from both Uber and Lyft have agreed to sit on a new automation council set up by Trump's Department of Transportation. Either a pox on both their houses, or a pox on none.

Completely stolen from https://www.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/5r2apd/lyft_sur...

This is all a consequence of bad messaging on Uber's part here; they're not in the wrong.

Uber's Surge system is all automatic--if demand goes way up, and supply doesn't follow suit, prices will increase in the app. Unfortunately, demand goes way up during catastrophes like terror attacks, so Uber has had a few bad instances where, in the wake of a crisis, surge goes up, simply because of the way the system is set up.

People who don't know about how Surge works might assume that Uber is deliberately raising prices in these crisis zones to gouge people in peril, which obviously isn't the case. To address cases like this, Uber put into place a surge shutoff system so that people in these positions aren't charged extra.

What happened here was that Uber, in the interest of avoiding another PR disaster, turned off surge to allow protesters (identifying with a cause which their CEO has openly supported) to get to the venue without extra charge. This backfired because that wasn't made clear in their announcement, and they instead came off as strike busters because the NYC taxi firms stupidly chose to express solidarity by shutting down the ability of protesters (not to mention uninvolved travelers) to get to and from the airport via their services.

I don't envy Uber--they're in a damned-if-they-do-damned-if-they-don't position. It's maddening to see the #deleteUber hashtag get this much traction, especially given that Lyft also continued to operate during the strike, but c'est la vie.

It's funny to me how Lyft positions itself like the poor little underdog that deeply cares about humans. People are so susceptible to marketing it's crazy.

They provide the exact same service, and Lyft cloned most of uber's features once uber had achieved the unbelievable mindshift of changing people's behavior.

Whatever people think, in a few years if Lyft is popular enough, guess what: they too will become the "big evil capitalistic entreprise" and some new venture backed company will send a christmas email to their users telling them they love them and should all dance together on the beach.

Lyft sent me a political message in an email so I deleted Lyft and now don't have either one. I used them, because I thought they were nicer to the drivers and allowed me tip. And I support the refugees and think this is a stupid and dangerous ban. Oh and I was a bit in the same boat as some of them and on a few occasions was not allowed board the plane with a ticket in hand, and was not able to get home to US.

But Lyft is just a driving app nothing else. There are also a few games, a spectrogram utility and other crap. Should I expect my chess game to start sending me "OMG we so hate Trump, stand with us".

This is getting ridiculous. We and our allies have bombed the crap out of those countries. Destabilized, them turned them into failed states. (Iran is probably the only sane one who arguably has a functioning government). We bombed hospitals, civilians, funded ISIS. Obama alone, the Nobel Peace Prize recipient just last year managed to drop over 26k bombs but but there is a stupid travel ban and the apps on my phone start emailing me political support statements...

This is an example of the economic principle of goodwill. Uber has a poor reputation that leads to actual losses, but the negative value of the reputation is difficult to quantify. Conversely, Lyft has fostered positive goodwill that strengthens it in indirect ways.

This controversy will likely blow over with a small amount of damage, but it's a reminder of the vulnerability that Uber's management style brings to it. I think they should pay careful attention to how much people really want to hate them.

niftich 2 days ago 1 reply      
It's unfortunate that such a literal instance of hashtag activism was based on pure speculation by random people on Twitter. Uber definitely botched the messaging, but they were in a no-win situation.

Their surge pricing algorithm will raise prices in times of low supply and high demand, which a protest coinciding with a taxi strike will definitely hit. I can understand why they would want to announce that they're going to turn off surge pricing, to make it clear they're not trying to profit off of this situation.

In retrospect, they would've been better off not saying anything, and perhaps refunding some portion of the ride price later. By making a public post devoid of context or justification, they invited fired-up commenters to arrive at their own interpretation. Some felt that Uber was trying to break the taxi strike, some felt that Uber was incentivizing protesters to clear the airport quickly (as some have pointed out, rides to JFK were not discounted).

This coupled with impassioned public largely powerless to react against government action, made a private company which has stoked people's frustrations for a while an easy target for hashtag activism. Lyft's marketing was ingenious -- they quickly capitalized on this unexpected development by donating a million dollars to the ACLU -- actions that are commendable on their own, but definitely appealed to large segments of the population.

Seems like Uber didn't really do anything wrong here other than fail on their messaging. Perhaps worth asking why so many people assumed they would be doing the wrong thing though and had little faith in Kalanick's explanations. Flocking to Lyft instead implies people make a distinction between the two in terms of ethics (which Lyft capitalized on) though probably not for any good reasons.

This doesn't seem like a good reason to delete Uber but there have been plenty of those in the past so I don't find myself very sad to see them lose business.

I'm curious about how taxi drivers are viewed in the US or this specific region. In Turkey, they're mostly hated, because they will go to any length to extort money out of the customers. This ranges from picking longer roads if they detect that the customer doesn't know the area well to asking for 500 euros to even pick them up after terrorist attacks. So, Uber was seen as the savior as their drivers wouldn't try to do any of this and were generally nicer in people's experience (it really doesn't take much to be nicer than a taxi driver here).

It seems clear to me that by not supporting the strike,Uber avoided choosing sides, which among Tech companies is as if it explicitly came out and supported Trump's executive order.

However, I don't understand how the strike was intended to help the victims, or change policy. A strike is meant to inconvenience a group of decision makers. If a company won't pay fair wages, the the employees stop performing work. Then the company cannot make profit and must find scabs, or give in. If university officials implement unfair or corrupt policies, then students occupy the decision makers' offices.

However, it seems like this strike was meant to inconvenience no one related to the problem. Perhaps someone can comment on what I'm missing.

It will be most interesting to see whether Kalanick follows through with his promise to discuss the EO with Trump [0], and whether having a seat at Trump's shiny business table actually amounts to anything. If it does not, it proves that the council only serves as a prop to promote Trump. This administration is not beyond using cheap props for marketing purposes. [1]

If the council holds no actual sway, Kalanick should then visibly and publicly resign from it if he truly stands behind his commitment to fairness. I'm withholding judgement until then.

I personally support the executive order in its motif.

Radicalization of US-born or US-admitted Muslims by clerics, relatives, social media -- is real, eg [1] (Fort-hood terrorist), San-Bernardino terrorists [2].

Therefore, the argument could not just be about questioning if any visa/green card holder for the initial list of 7 'banned-county -->to--> Muslim terrorist perpetrating killing on US soil'.

It is a preventive measure, with a time limit .Very appropriate for this period of time, given the war with ISIS.

I am not, however, impressed with the execution or the preparation that went into this particular order.I would like to see a different level of scrutiny and reduced personal inconvenience afforded to US green card holders.

Even if you completely agree with what the order does, it's impossible to claim that the implementation of this was anything other than a complete and utter disaster. No warning, no clear way to enforce the order, widespread protest, and getting the courts involved within 24 hours.

This is going to have ramifications for years to come. We want to encourage the world's best and brightest to come here, and a precedent of unannounced, widespread, severe changes to enforcement of the laws will cause people to reconsider.

The ban is absolutely necessary. You Americans have a great country but you're going to ruin it if you don't take your time to listen to Trump.

There is no way that unchecked immigration is a good thing for any country in the world let alone America.

I've heard what has been said about how immigration made America what it is today - great. However, immigration should be based on whether the immigrant will add value to your country. If an immigrant is coming to set up a business, do further studies and other positive things like that, then by all means provide them with a way to come in.

However, if there's a threat of terrorism from the immigrant or if they aren't adding value but will instead be recipients of welfare all I can ask is, WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?

How can you sustain this? You cannot save everyone in the world. You just can't. The best you can do is help them from a camp in their own country and even then, it's your choice as a country that has fair elections.

Why did you even have these elections if you're going to disallow the president that you yourselves chose in FAIR elections to do his jobs. Is there anything new that Trump is doing that he did not promise his voters he would do? If not, then you're saying that the majority of the people that chose Trump don't deserve to be heard and that only your views matter.

And don't even get me started on that business of, 'we didn't vote for him...he didn't get the popular vote'.

Why is it okay for previous presidents who won in the electoral college to be legitimized but not Trump? This is absolutely UNFAIR and selfish of anti-Trumpians. Remember, you take away California and Trump actually wins the popular vote anyway. To me, this is a clear indication that one state wants to bully the rest of the country into doing things their way and their way only. So UNFAIR.

Without getting into my country of origin, I will tell you this; we too are building a wall to stop illegal aliens from a neighboring Muslim country from getting in. These fundamentalists are really terrible human beings. We have lost so many lives to their suicide attacks. Friends and families losing their loved ones to these actions. I remember a time we were so scared of the attacks that we had to close offices in the daytime when working and verify you knew who was knocking on the door before letting them in. It was a terrible time and with a recent attack, last week to more precise, the fear is coming back. I just wish we had finished putting up our wall by now and that it was as strong as the proposed American one.

People have to be responsible for their own country. They have to build their own countries and stop the fundamentalism.

If anyone thinks that this ruling is a surprise to the Trump administration, think again. I have no doubt that he conferred with his AG about his executive order and discuss possible outcomes such as a judge blocking his order. Maybe he expected this outcome?

Regardless, we'll see what his next move is.

Google employees were very heavily represented on the Never Again pledge a few weeks ago, more than any big tech company. I've been able to talk to several Googlers since then, several of whom are now directly involved with Tech Solidarity. Google takes a lot of shit, and some of it is probably deserved, but there seems clearly to be a moral core to the people working there.

I stick up for Google a lot --- nobody has done more to improve the security of the web than they have --- but they deserve credit for this kind of thing too.

Relevant part of his background [0]

>They formally applied for their exit visa in September 1978, and as a result his father was "promptly fired". For related reasons, his mother also had to leave her job. For the next eight months, without any steady income, they were forced to take on temporary jobs as they waited, afraid their request would be denied as it was for many refuseniks. During this time his parents shared responsibility for looking after him and his father taught himself computer programming. In May 1979, they were granted their official exit visas and were allowed to leave the country.[12] At an interview in October 2000, Brin said, "I know the hard times that my parents went through there and am very thankful that I was brought to the States."[17]

>In the summer of 1990, a few weeks before his 17th birthday, his father led a group of high school math students, including Sergey, on a two-week exchange program to the Soviet Union. His roommate on the trip was future Carnegie Mellon University computer science professor John Stamper. As Brin recalls, the trip awakened his childhood fear of authority and he remembered that "his first impulse on confronting Soviet oppression had been to throw pebbles at a police car." Malseed adds, "On the second day of the trip, while the group toured a sanatorium in the countryside near Moscow, Brin took his father aside, looked him in the eye and said, 'Thank you for taking us all out of Russia.'"

Well at least people are pushing back.

What was starting to worry me is that many of the top CEOs were all kissing Trumps ass as to who can bring back more jobs. They were stumbling over themselves, "we are bringing 10000 jobs in the next 2 years".

There needs to be a lot of vocal people against this, immigrants are one the weakest groups in society. Trump just deomstrated and confirmed this.

What I don't get, and maybe someone can explain it, why isn't this un-constitutional? It feels like banning people, people who are perfectly legal not citizens but still legal, based on their religion is against the constitution. Am I missing something? Wasn't this country started by people looking to escape religious persecution?

You all are aware that the past 6 U.S. presidents have done this sort of thing...right?

Obama last did it in 2011.

The hypocrisy here is that because Trump did it, it is wrong.

We are a nation of laws and in order to maintain law and order, we must follow those laws. The minute tech companies (let's not be obtuse here, corporations are in the business of making money and appeasing shareholders) decides they are either for or against certain laws, well...you have anarchy.

This has nothing to do with denying rights to immigrants and everything to do with the far lefts disproval of the elected president of the United States.

Edit: apparently I was mistaken. It applies to 'the people' of the US, which is anyone with 'substantial connection' to the US and under US jurisdiction. Green card holders would seem to be pretty clearly of 'the people' then.

Of course, it's a damn shame to treat any legal immigrant or legitimate asylum seeker this way. Seems to be absolutely against the long standing traditions of the country.

American citizen here:

I was denied a entry visa into Paraguay left to be stranded in Brazil. I barely made it to my grandmothers funeral. I had to call the embassy and spend several days in limbo. I understood that I was powerless because I was not a citizen of Brazil nor Paraguay. I wasn't entitled to representation by either country nor would they provide it.

I was jailed in Mozambique for refusing to pay a bribe at the border. I did not expect nor receive any special treatment. This is the way things are.

I overstayed my visa in Chile by less than 24 hours, was forced to remain at the border between Argentina and Chile for the day and threatened with jail. I did not fight and riot nor protest. Why would I? I need to follow the laws of the country I am in.

What we have here is a nation so divided that you have people on the right who are for less government and rule, but respect the rule of law and people on the left who have no regard for the law and demand more regulations and laws.

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.

We're a team of engineers at the Royal Academy of Sciences in the Netherlands. We build a Backend as a Service that allows users to deposit their data[1]. We're looking for front-end / back-end engineers (we prefer people who like a little bit of both) to add features for exposing the data (search, visualisation) and for working with the data (distributes storage, reasoning/inferring knowledge).

We're using java (yes, voluntarily), react/redux (I know, sooo 2016) and we're hosting on kubernetes (sorry, no disparaging remark here).We don't really care if you've used these exact technologies before, but we do care if you have built up greenfield applications as well as to have worked on applications that have been in development for a few years.

Interview process: phone interview -> at a later date a technical challenge (in person or screenshare) -> final interview (finalizing the agreement)

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

Devops, containers, Kubernetes, aws

For engineers, 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.

For UX designers, if we're happy with your portfolio, we'll give you some paid work to see if we're a mutual fit.

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. In parallel with the software development, a team of Yale Law School alums conducts the deep research so that our users finally feel empowered, rather than intimidated, by the law.

We currently have a MVP (https://www.senddavid.com) and are looking for a Senior Engineer as a very early member of the team.

Pachyderm -- San Francisco -- Onsite only -- jobs@pachyderm.io

Core distributed systems/infrastructure engineer (Golang, Docker, Kubernetes) -- experience with any systems language is fine even if you don't know Go yet.

Check out http://pachyderm.io/jobs.html to see all positions and more detailed descriptions.



What would data analytics infrastructure (namely Hadoop) look like if we rebuilt it from scratch today? We think it would be containerized, modular, and easy enough for a single person to use while still being scalable enough for a whole company. Tools like Docker and Kubernetes provide the perfect building blocks for us revolutionize data infrastructure!

Pachyderm is just 7 people right now, so you'd be getting in right at the ground floor and have an enormous impact on the success and direction of the company as well as building the rest of the engineering team.

Salaries start around $120k and go up from there based on experience. We also offer significant equity, full benefits, and all the usual startup perks. This position is based in SF.

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 (68,000 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 just over 100 (40 engineers) based in downtown SF, and were looking for engineers who enjoy working in (or would enjoy learning) Golang, Node and React. More generally, we want people who are sharp, adaptable, and passionate about improving the way education works for everyone.

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.

Each day brings more chores and less time to accomplish them. Whether someone needs a handyman, house cleaner, mover or delivery person, TaskRabbit delights clients by matching the right skilled person in minutes. On the other side of the marketplace we help our Taskers earn a living by setting their own prices, defining their working hours, and give them control to help people when and how they want in the most supportive marketplace.

As a Staff Engineer you'd be one of the leaders of the team, helping to mentor junior engineers, propose creative solutions, and detangle the complex into the simple. This role will be primarily responsible for driving the backend development. You'll work alongside our Chief Architect to have a full vision of the system working to build a robust platform that's clearly organized and easy to maintain. We believe strongly in test-driven development, code reviews, and collaboration. It's expected that you'd be a main reviewer helping to grow the skills of the more junior engineers, along the way hopefully you'll learn a thing or two during the reviews as well. You'll also spend significant time writing code and building features; and we're looking for someone who will be as excited to learn engineering insights from us as they are to teach us the gems of wisdom they've learned along the way.

We're still small (7 full-time engineers and a few contractors, ~20 total), and the music recording and hi-fi industries are already beating a path to our door, so we need all-rounders to keep up. If you like the idea of hacking on our (C++) encoder/decoder, learning assembly for a new instruction set to optimise porting to a new hardware platform, then spending the next week helping us analyse, process and revitalise the back catalogs of the world's top record labels...we want to hear from you. DSP experience not required (although obviously it's nice!).

MQA has developed a music encoding and delivery system whose quality blows basically anything commercially available out of the water. (Think it's impossible to improve on CD? So did a lot of people. If you want to help out with the peer-reviewed double-blind studies that proved them wrong, here's the place to do it.) MQA is an end-to-end system, that ensures precise transmission of the analog signal from the mastering desk to the listener's ears. We've signed with household-name record labels, artists and hi-fi manufacturers, we've got music-industry luminaries working here (they're remarkably nice), and it's only getting bigger from here. We're a friendly, international team that values initiative and getting things done, and we're looking forward to meeting you. Interviews are a phone screen then on-site with the team.

Our vision

90% of the economy lives offline but we know very little of what happens there. Our vision is to quantify and understand the physical world around us to improve business decision making.

We believe that while implementation experience is essential, enthusiasm and interest can trump experience: we are willing to take a chance on someone who wants to step up!

We're still young but we've just closed a $1mln seed round that we will use to grow faster and we have been selected for prestigious acceleration programs like Cisco EIR in SJ, Acceleprise SF and EU IMPACT.


What we are looking for:

- a frontend developer: Javascript, React- a junior Python developer for our data science team: math background, knowledge or willingness to learn statistics- a marketing manager: B2B, PR, inbound marketing

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 devops, security, and compliance (we're seeking a full-stack engineer interested in contributing in these areas early on - whether or not you are already an expert). We're using Kubernetes/Google Cloud.


Also we will be posting a couple of non-technical/quasi-technical roles shortly, please keep an eye on https://binti.com/binti-careers/ .

Saatchi Art | Santa Monica, CA | Fulltime, ONSITE

Saatchi Art (https://www.saatchiart.com) is the world's leading online art gallery, a global marketplace where artists in over 100 countries have sold to collectors in 80 countries!

We are currently looking to hire software engineers that possess solid CS fundamentals, are fluent with design patterns, and will dive in fearlessly to any part of our complex stack as necessary. The number of years of work experience matter less to us than the complexity of what you have been recently doing.

Specifically for our Sr. Front End position, we want someone with production-level React/Redux/Webpack experience, and expert-level HTML, CSS and javascript.

Specifically for our Sr. Backend position, we are looking for folks with PHP (Laravel), SQL (mysql), and NoSQL (Couchbase, MongoDB) experience. Async programming experience is a definite plus, as is experience with configuration management tools (Puppet/Chef/Ansible), Docker, and AWS.

Our engineering team is a small tight knit bunch of talented developers who care deeply about our craft and work everyday to better ourselves at it while iteratively building product features that make it easier for artists and collectors to connect across geographies and cultures.

Your work will have a direct impact on the livelihoods of people who might otherwise not have had the opportunity to share their works across the globe, every single day.

Check out our site, then hit me (Chris) up at careers@saatchiart.com if you want to know 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 clients 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). It's 48 times more effective than making phone calls.

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.

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 top VC firms including Social Capital and Index Ventures.Please apply on our site to learn more about us and our growing team of 18!

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, amazing traction (50x growth in the last two years), 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.

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.

"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.

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

Smarkets | Full Time | ONSITE (London, UK; now also Santa Monica, California)

We're a modern betting exchange, going technology first to enable proper price competition in a field of fat commissions. Join a small, agile, and fast-growing team, in our beautiful office in St. Katharine Docks. If our US location tickles your fancy, you get to help setting up a brand new office too.

Smarkets develops a reliable, low-latency, highly concurrent betting exchange based on trading exchange designs. We're also building a fast, modern web interface to allow for a smoother experience. Servicing our users is top priority.

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

Our entire production is in AWS. In fact, Smarkets was the first gambling operator under the Maltese regulator to get permission to run everything in the cloud. We push the envelope where needed and educate auditors when necessary.

We are looking for:

* Infrastructure Engineers, both junior and senior (think midway between SRE and devops; security background is a bonus)

* An Infrastructure Lead Engineer

* Software Engineers (London, Los Angeles)

* UX/UI Designers

If you like the idea of flat structure and practical engineering approach, see our jobs at https://smarkets.com/careers/ . (A while back I wrote an overview about our engineering challenges, which you can find at https://smarketshq.com/the-challenges-of-running-a-betting-e... .)

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

Karius has taken the genomic sequencing revolution (NGS) out of the lab to transform infectious disease testing. Traditional testing approaches rely on hypothesis-driven testing, but we directly sequence the pathogen DNA to determine what a patient is infected with.

I am a software engineer without a biotech background. 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 a great 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.

We are greatly expanding our engineering team this year.

Bioinformatics Pipeline: Bioinformatics experience not required if you are an eager learner. Experience or desire to work with a strongly-typed language (Rust, Haskell, Scala, F#, OCaml, Flow/TypeScript2).

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

Dev-Ops: Docker, building infrastructure on AWS with terraform and CloudFormation. Postgres, MySQL

Backend Web Services: service oriented architecture in a regulated environment, schema modeling, REST APIs with Swagger documentation

We are also hiring for our analytics team to do bioinformatics analysis.

Scoop | Backend, Mobile & DevOps | San Francisco, CA | Onsite. Full-Time. $100-150 + Equity | https://www.takescoop.com

There's a problem that's been unsolved for 40 years. It's called carpooling - heard of it? We know you have. But now, there's a team of engineers, marketers, and business people actually making headway on this problem. With over 400,000 rides done to date, the Scoop team has made carpooling easy for the first time - and we need an awesome engineer to help in the fight against traffic. Maybe it's you? The Scoop team has a simple mission: to eliminate traffic and reimagine transportation, giving life back to commuters and communities. Two years after our San Francisco Bay Area launch, Scoop has become a vibrant community of coworkers and neighbors that have shared hundreds of thousands of commutes. Our mobile-first commuting technology powers the carpooling programs of many of the Bay Areas largest employers, including Cisco, Tesla, Workday, and Salesforce.

Our stack? Node, AWS, native on iOS (all Swift) and Android. We might be a startup, but we care deeply about testing and great technical design. And our entire matching algorithm is home-brewed. We're hiring for Android, backend generalists, DevOps/Infra addicts and data lovers.

Spectranetix | Sunnyvale CA | Onsite | http://spectranetix.com

Spectranetix is doing software defined radio research and development on a number of government contracts, the company is combining software and FPGA expertise to build best in class, multi-mission capable systems.

We have openings for at least 2 software engineers.

On the plus side the work is challenging, cutting edge, and meaningful. We aren't hung up on how old you are or whether or not you have a degree from the 'right' school. We're also right in the middle of Sunnyvale so relatively easy to get there from the South Bay.

On the down side you have to be US Citizen (sorry no green cards) and our salary flexibility is constrained by what is budgeted in the contract. One role is more data science focused doing feature extraction from real and synthetic data sets, and the other is more build a pipeline between multiple SDRs to visualize and quantify various radios that can be detected.

Principals only, we will not be able to accommodate any recruiters or placement services.

If you like interesting puzzles, have an affinity or interest in complex real time systems, you would find these opportunities interesting.

Stack: Vivado, C, ARM architectures, some C# and Java for some customer's UI work.

email chuck.mcmanis@spectranetix.com if you would like to hear more.

Wellframe | Healthcare | Boston, Ma | Onsite/Fulltime https://www.wellframe.com

At Wellframe, we are building an intelligent care-management platform that allows health plans and care-delivery organizations to better manage large populations of complex patients. Because the most clinically complicated cases in a patient population tend to drive a majority of the costs, even seemingly small improvements in these patients well-being have dramatic benefits for the care provider. Wellframe focuses on improving patient health by providing personalized and adaptive care programs for people trying to recover from or manage serious health problems. We use the health data we collect in order to intelligently allot care resources to the specific needs of patients, paying special attention to the most-critical patients. Through clinical studies and working with large healthcare payers, we have seen that our platform improves patient outcomes, increases the capacity of care management teams and reduces costs of the care provider. We have a relatively small engineering team at about 10 engineers. What makes us unique is that we have a full time clinical team of doctors that work with us to break down clinical science so that we can build it back up into personalized and adaptive care programs.

We're currently looking for several mid/senior engineering positions (android, iOS, frontend, backend, infra/platform, sre) across our engineering team. More descriptions can be found on our jobs page (below). If you're in the area I'd love to just grab coffee regardless of whether or not you're actively looking to move -- I love talking to other passionate, driven people about what they do.

Our stack is native Android (Java) and iOS (Objective-C), our API is served in a Ruby on Rails monolith and Scala services, on top of MySQL, Cassandra, ElasticSearch and Spark. Our frontend is mostly Backbone + React, although some more complex state we are moving to Redux.

Jobs: https://www.wellframe.com/jobs Also feel free to reach out to me at nam@wellframe.com!

Arachnys | senior and junior engineers | London (UK) or NYC (USA) | On-site

Arachnys makes software to help banks manage know-your-customer checks and anti-money laundering (KYC/AML). It's what's perhaps most broken about banks - the FT recently said that they are spending $270B/year on compliance! - and we're helping to fix it. Our customers are tier-1 financial institutions and large multinationals.

At the moment we're looking for generalist engineers of any experience level. We work in Python, Go, Java and JavaScript. We have two projects with over 1k stars on GitHub (one just broke 3k https://github.com/arachnys). We're always looking to open source more.

Our small, tight-knit team has a can-do mentality and isn't scared to use new tools when they are the right ones for the job. We have a relentless focus on quality of delivery, while not being scared of pushing back on customer demands. (A tier-1 bank recently told us that we were the first supplier that had asked them, "Why?", about their requirements.)

Drop me a line (email in profile) if any questions.

Email jobs@arachnys.com to apply, linking to your GitHub or some other code that you think tells a good story about you.

We have a lot of interesting, creative work ahead and are looking for curious problem solvers to reimagine how our customers get their data into Geckoboard. You'll be joining a friendly team with great people in an environment with empowered developers, flexible working conditions, and a focus on skill development.

We are heavy users of Go on the back-end, alongside some Ruby services. On the front-end, we've been using React (and, more recently, Redux) for 2+ years, but a lot of us have learned it on the job so you don't need professional experience with it. If you share our interest in distributed systems, databases, and data visualisation, we have plenty of fun problems for you to work on :)

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).

Our regular clients include Disney, Hasbro, Warner Bros., PBS Kids, Scholastic, Dreamworks and a host of other kid focused companies. http://www.curiousmedia.com

Weve been around since 2004 and have a team of 35. We are extremely stable and have many employees who have been with the company for 6-12 years now. We are very mindful and focused on being a family friendly workplace, both in the type of jobs we take and our expectations of employees time. We rarely work more than 40 hours a week and when we do, we give PTO at a 1:1 ratio (any hours over 45 in a week).

We are more specifically located in Nampa, about 14 miles west of Boise.

OpenDataSoft (https://www.opendatasoft.com) | Paris, France | Full-time, on site

OpenDataSoft (founded in 2011, 40 employees nowadays) is developing a SaaS platform that aims to make it very easy for anyone to create a data portal (which can be a public open data portal, a private internal data sharing space, or anything in between), and at the same time build a wide catalog of public easy-to-use data. You can see the public half of our work here (https://data.opendatasoft.com/explore/).

We're hiring:

Front-end Engineer (Senior or Junior) : help us build easy-to-use UIs to make data publishing intuitive; also help us re-build entirely our front-end stack this year (from AngularJS 1 to ...?)

Back-end Engineer (Senior or Junior) : we like to add a few 0s every year to our data processing performance metrics; help us make our Python stack faster and more resilient!

Technical Consultant : you like to hack around a platform (and talk to the R&D team about it), and to help customers become autonomous on a product (which sometimes means teaching a bit of HTML)

Being an Engineer at OpenDataSoft means being able to "drive a feature home", from the design and implementation choices to the documentation and advanced support. If you like contributing to a product and making impactful choices, we may be a great fit for you!We may look like a startup, but we have sensible working hours, a sane growth rate, and a very very low turnover. However, we still like beer, weird jokes, and food (a lot).

You can find more information and contact us on our website: https://www.opendatasoft.com/company/jobs/

C2FO | Research Engineer | Seattle | ONSITE, Full time, Visa considered | https://c2fo.com

The C2FO lab is charged with developing tools for small businesses to help them win the fight against their own unpredictable cash flow using networks instead of traditional financial intermediaries, e.g., banks.

Today we work mainly in Go and JavaScript and put roughly equal emphasis on writing papers and writing software. Team members need to be able to define their own areas of interest, write their own supporting documents, and lead their own coding projects while welcoming help and input from others. Simultaneous with the largely independent effort is a need to demonstrate to stakeholders outside the team why your work is valuable.

Our interview process consists of an initial conference call to assess mutual interest, then one or more onsite interviews in Pioneer Square.

C2FO as an organization is headquartered in Kansas City and has some great investors on board including Mithril Capital Management, Temasek, and Union Square Ventures. We have a separate, larger engineering team that we collaborate with and that publishes open source at https://github.com/c2fo.

The position includes an excellent compensation package (commensurate with experience), equity ownership, Health Benefits, 401K and more.

If interested, please email pete@c2fo.com.

EDIT: added benefits blurb

We're building a communication hub for manufacturers and retailers, so that they can exchange all kinds of information related to the goods being traded. This hub will gradually take over all other communication methods such as Excel/FTP/Email/Dropbox towards Cloud/Mobile. As well, it will allow to repurpose a customer's data for a number of additional products for them. We're aiming for scale of tens of thousands of manufacturers, this is not a consultancy gig.

We're looking someone who can empathize with how the users are running their business, and who can employ technical skills and wits to build a better workflow for those users. This is a Principal-level position, you would need to own the outcome in it's entirety. Your scope of responsibility will start with optimizing individual workflows for our customers, a combination of features to remove a given thorn in customer's side, and it will progress to entire products. All the way from interviewing representative customers to mass-deployment.

There is no shortage of work:

 - E-Commerce integration - EDI integration - Mobile development - Interaction design - Generating print material - Payment processing - User analytics (for our customers to track *their* customers) - Email campaign orchestration and tracking (ditto) - Data visualization (ditto) - Logging - C# business logic - Modern web front-end, likely React or Vue.js
About us:

 - Opportunities: A huge area of responsibility. Pick two if you dare. - Family-friendly: Sane hours, generous vacations. - Benefits: Health. - Financial security: Enough pay so you don't have to worry about it. - A stake in success: Meaningful stock option grant. Really. - Profitable
Can you get things done? Please contact denis@amptab.com
