Update on Coinbase Data Security coinbase.com

While not ideal, I think this is being blown out of proportion by someone that doesn't like Coinbase. For starters, of the 2042 "leaked" emails, 1153 are unique. That means the person that posted it was trying to pad their results, which combined with the possible but unfounded FBI/Fincen accusations, illustrates that someone is mad at Coinbase and is lashing out.

Enumeration isn't a fantastic idea, but given its ubiquity in various forms on major sites throughout the internet, I don't think it's worthy of all of this negative attention directed specifically at Coinbase either. I once wrote a program that could take a list of random emails and use Facebook to turn it into a CSV matching each email to a name, a list of their friends, their location, and interests. That should have been scandalous, but it wasn't.

We are acting as pawns in someone's revenge scheme against Coinbase.

Youll find that user enumeration is possible on Facebook, Google, Dropbox, and nearly every other major internet site.

And yet, most banks & payment processors do not do this, for good reason. Seems like Coinbase is suffering from some domain confusion.

I'm curious why, given the prior reports of security issues at Coinbase and the ongoing drama with Mt Gox, you guys didn't immediately hire, say, tptacek's company to do extensive penetration testing and a full security audit. It appears that not all API calls were rate-limited, as they probably should have been, and there certainly doesn't seem to be any sort of monitoring of brute-force attempts like this in place. With all the negative publicity around Bitcoin exchanges, you should have doubled down on security weeks ago, or at least explained the privacy tradeoffs in your design decisions clearly.

Wed also like to address the claim of a leaked list of Coinbase emails and user names. This list (the size of which is less than one half of one percent of Coinbase users) was not the result of a data breach at Coinbase. This list of emails was likely sourced from other sites - probably Bitcoin related ones. Its clear there was no data breach because no other user information is provided.

That last sentence is doing a lot of lifting, out of its weight class.

This immediate "no it's not true" might reassure some folks, but it scares me because of how quick it is. Have you looked at the audit systems on your database?

"We believe this information is bogus but are investigating to make sure" is a better response, assuming you actually do investigate to make sure.

Do you smell it?

They believe it's not a risk to their users (never minds those users who are now targeted via e-mail leak because they have BitCoins).

"Youll also find many leading payment services allow user enumeration"

They also do pattern monitoring and rate limiting. And instead of saying 'but they do it!' they should be saying 'they do it too, but we think this is a valid privacy issue that we need to fix'.

This is more or less 'If you don't get privacy implications , we will bullshit you so you don't panic and go elsewhere with your money. Everything is fine!'

I think many users will assume, with a finance site like Coinbase, that the name they have provided is for $ transactions (taxes, Visa, MasterCard, etc.) not for social aspects. In my opinion, getting behind the Privacy Policy and claiming that users know their names will be publicly shared is unethical.

Why people want to hide their names? Personally I don't hide my name. But it is not too hard to understand that on "web-scale" there will be someone who is stalked, who has posted on suicide help forums, etc.

(Bug report at https://hackerone.com/reports/5200)

From Ryan McGeehan, director of security (user magoo):

  > This behavior is mostly informational to an attacker and does not  > directly increase risk in any significant way
All information leaks are useful to an attacker. By themselves they are harmless, but can be combined with other information to successfully exploit a system.

From bug reporter Shubham Shah (user zero):

  > This request can now be replayed unlimited times, with unlimited email  > addresses inputted. Coinbase does not limit the rate of POST requests  > to /transactions/request_money
This should not be possible at all. The reporter must have made a mistake and forgot to mention the X-CSRF-Token needs to be updated each time. If it didn't need to be updated, this would be a basic CSRF vuln.

All this being said, the real flaw here is the lack of rate limiting on transactions, for three reasons:

1. The spam will eventually mount up and ISPs will block their servers for days or weeks.

2. Their network and app stack is subject to DoS attacks unless they rate-limit transactions.

3. Harvesting of e-mail addresses would be stopped by basic rate limiting of email<->user queries.

TimL Clojure like language which compiles down to VimL github.com
94 points by daGrevis  3 hours ago   17 comments top 9
goldfeld 1 hour ago 2 replies      
This is beyond my wildest wishes. Meaning I have wished, as a formerly active Vim plugin author now fully switched over to Emacs/evil, exactly for Clojure compiling down to VimL so that I could maintain my plugins as Clojure/Lisp code, compiling it to actual VimL for public consumption, as a preprocessor. I'd think that would mostly do away with runtime performance worries, and not require the plugin user to actually have TimL installed as a plugin. Which means it could ease the transition of plugin authors to TimL, until eventually it's ok (and perhaps performant) to have it as a runtime.

Needless to say, I love the fact that Tim Pope has hopped on the Clojure bandwagon, that the community can enjoy well thought out tooling such as he did/does for Rails.

That said, tpope is one of only a few driving forces over on the Vim side of Clojure, whereas most seem to flock to Emacs. So I see this as potentially a great opportunity to eventually have Clojure-ish compiling/running on both Vim and Emacs, so that plugin authors can literally write and keep a single codebase that maps into the respective editor APIs. Well, least common denominator I guess, with extras specific for each editor. And maybe, speaking from my experience developing Vim plugins and looking into Elisp code, we will need 'clojureditor' packages providing higher level functionality painstakingly implemented for both editors, since it would be plenty non-trivial code that probably doesn't belong in a core like TimL neither in a Clojure+elisp equivalent.

Then you could see this actually taking off big time since the more voluminous Clojure+Emacs community would be writing a good deal of plugins which would also work on Vim for free (imagine that!), so that they could support both platforms because it wouldn't be much extra effort. Hats off to the Pope for actually taking on the arguably tougher half, since Elisp should hopefully be an easier target for a lisp like Clojure.

mikegerwitz 1 hour ago 0 replies      
In the never-ending Emacs vs. Vim debate, as a long-time Vim user (with no intent on switching), I've always envied Elisp. tpope has once again delivered and maybe now I can stop shamefully eyeing up Emacs from a distance.

I haven't given this a try yet, but I can expect that, if it works well, it will be worth even a modest performance hit.

AMD's Jaguar Microarchitecture realworldtech.com
36 points by luu  1 hour ago   9 comments top 4
rkalla 34 minutes ago 0 replies      
The conclusion alluded to one of the most interesting parts of how Jaguar may age -- summarized horribly -- we've never had a SOC shared between consoles (XB1/PS4), desktops, laptops and tablets so closely that as the SOC shrinks and the software on it is optimized further and further, you could imagine a future in short-order (3-4 years?) where you might be able to buy a much-shrunk Jaguar-based tablet that plays PS4 games at full fidelity.

His point is this has the potential of greatly extending the life of the Jaguar SOC just by virtue of die shrinks and power savings and no significant rejiggering of performance through the generations.

I thought that was a good call out... we never had this apples-to-almost-apples comparison before to see this story play out.

dmunoz 1 hour ago 0 replies      
A bit meta, but for those who were not previously aware of Real World Tech, if you enjoyed this article then do dig into the archives. David Kanter does awesome writeups of (mostly) CPU and GPU architectures. I consider them a step beyond Anand Shimpi's write ups, the most recent of which was recently shared on HN, concerning Apple's Cyclone Microarchitecture [0]. They're published very infrequently, with the front page of RWT still having two articles from 2012 appearing.

Although it's not exactly relevant to the type of programming I do, I still find it useful to understand how modern processors actually work. At the very least, reading architecture articles helps me to understand exactly why certain processors are faster at specific tasks than others.

While I think it's great that David is being paid to write what he is good at, it's slightly disappointing to me that his long form writeups are going to be behind a pay wall at Microprocessor Report, which is covered in the recent article "Splitting my time between MPR and RWT" [1]. The submitted article is likely one of the few more in-depth articles he talked about being release in the next several months.

I get that this is a joke, but I do think a really cool concept for a game would be one where there is just an API for the "state" and that is responsible for the mechanics and rules of the game, but that you would build your own custom client for the UI. For example, some kind of spaceship battle game where you create your own interface for controlling the ship... it would be kind of a meta-game where creating the interface a certain way might give you advantages in terms of efficiency versus others.

I like that there's people working to make scraping easier and friendly for everyone. Sadly (IMHO) the cases where these tools will probably fail are at the same time the same not really open on providing the data directly. Most scraper-unfriendly sites would make you request another page before to capture a cookie, set cookies on the request headers or a referer entry, or manually using regex magic to extract information from javascript code on the html. I guess it's just time one tool will provide such methods, though.

For my project I do write all the scrapers manually (that is, in python, including requests and the amazing lxml) because there's always one source that will make you build all the architecture around it. Something that I find that is needed for public APIs is a domain specific language that can work around building intermediate servers by explaining the engine how to understand a data source:

An API producer wants to keep serving the data themselves (traffic, context and statistics), but someone wants an standard way of accessing more than one source (let's say, 140 different sources). If only instead of making an intermediate service providing this standardized version, one could be able to provide templates that a client module would use to understand the data under the same abstraction.

The data consumer would be accessing the source server directly, and the producer would not need to ban over 9000 different scrapers. Of course this would only make sense for public APIs. (real) scraping should never be done on the client: it is slow, crashes and can breach security on the device.

This is great. However I have one bone to pick(or rather know if its been taken care of)Scrapy uses xpaths or equivalent representations to scrape. However there are many alternate xpaths to represent the same div. For e.g. Suppose data is to be extracted from the fifth div in a sequence of divs. So it would use that as the xpath. But now say it also has a meaningful class or id attribute. An xpath based on this attribute might be a better choice because this content may not be in the fifth div across all the pages in a site I want to scrape. Is this taken care of by taking the common denominator from many sample pages?

Coinbase user emails and full names leaked pastebin.com

NathanKP 6 hours ago 5 replies      
Does anyone know where or if the full list can be found? I have a Coinbase account but I don't see my name on the abbreviated list.

I suspect that the person who made this Pastebin just ran a huge list of known leaked emails, or dictionary based emails through the minor information leakage vulnerability discussed yesterday (https://hackerone.com/reports/5200). I would be willing to bet that this brief list is actually all he got back, and he is just lying when he says "Full list much bigger."

Since the vulnerability was reliant on knowing the email first, and since my email used on Coinbase is not a known email that I publicize I doubt he would have been able to discover my Coinbase account, nor the Coinbase accounts of anyone else who uses a sufficiently random and unknown email address when signing up.

The second had registered a username of " URGENT: oinbase hacked. We" so that the email subject line read " URGENT: oinbase hacked. We sent you a payment request."

I got my coin out of Inputs.io just a few days before they got hacked, and I've got a low balance in Coinbase. I'm going to make that a zero balance, because I've completely lost faith in any company's ability to manage Bitcoin.

At this point I would not trust Coinbase, their engineering department shows that they have very little clue when it comes to building a secure infrastructure.

Not only they are not rate limiting and leaking names, their implementations are simply laughable.

With a proper design, customer should have been allowed to either enable/disable that end-point when somebody is searching for their email, or there should have been an option to have a 'whitelist' a set of users/user that are able to look up that information and make a transaction request.

On top of that, they should have been able to detect a pattern such as this attack and pro-actively block it.

This would pass for a to-do app API but Coinbase? Wow.

This is not a "leak". All of these email addresses were already in the wild. The "attacker" simply tested if Coinbase accounts matched these emails.

Think about it. Email enumeration is possible if accounts associated with an email address. Otherwise forgot password forms would simply say successful even if someone typo'd their address (terrible UI) or the signup forms would allow multiple accounts with the same email address.

Sure, I have to take a short bus ride to get to it, and it could be stolen or broken into at any time, but that's the price I pay for convenience, versus just keeping it in my garage where it's much more inconvenient for anyone to steal or damage it. (?????)

A website is not a bank. There are no armed guards or vaults and there is no federal insurance for your bitcoin. You're basically all handing your money to some guy who keeps all the coin on the second floor of a corporate office with a single old dude standing guard at the elevator. It's totes hard to get past that guy, because like, he has a badge and a hat and everything.

IOS security bug TLS mutual-auth fails with client elliptic curve keys openradar.appspot.com

While this is a "bug" pertaining to "security", it doesn't look like a vulnerability; rather, if I'm reading it right, it looks like a compat/interop flaw: if your app uses TLS client certificates (like 0.001% of all apps) to talk to a 3rd party server, and you use ECC ciphersuites, the iOS SecureTransport library aborts the TLS connection.

Here's how big a deal this bug is: the feature they're talking about apparently flat-out doesn't work, they were the first people to figure that out, and this bug is the only place on the Internet that currently documents the fact.

In other words: not necessarily that big of a deal.

It's too bad, I guess, because more mobile apps should take advantage of TLS client certs; custom code that talk TLS can use them much more easily than browsers can.

I don't wish to engage in standard HN negativity, but I'd like to suggest that you should probably don't want to use a carousel at all most of the time.

From the user's perspective, a carousel is just a random image. You'll get more conversions if you choose the best image instead of a random one.


Smudge 5 hours ago 2 replies      
I know "progressive enhancement" is a little pass at this point (at least as far as the HN crowd seems concerned), but the flash of unstyled content (before javascript loads) is really ugly. (Try disabling javascript and see how the unloaded carousels take up a ton of vertical space).

The script says it uses CSS3 when available, so I wonder if the markup can also be structured to be styled when the page loads, instead of when javascript loads. (I've done this before with my own carousel -- everything is set up with CSS, and javascript is only used to make the left/right arrows function).

Using my mouse, I tend not to flick like I would on a touch screen. I press down the mouse anywhere in your carousel, and drag it to the side.

I would want it to move to the next element.

Testing it out as a user, the slide transitions didn't feel as responsive to swipe velocity as I expected. In particular, if I swipe even a small distance but quickly, I expect to trigger the transition. I just tested it with iOS and Android, and they both seem to do it at least for left-to-right transitions of home screen pages, and Android does it for the top menu.

From looking at [the source](https://github.com/kenwheeler/slick/blob/master/slick/slick....), it doesn't seem check for velocity; it just applies a distance threshold. Have you considered having the threshold respond to swipe speed so that faster swipes over shorter distances trigger transitions?

This kind of thing seems to be one reason America is still the best place to start a business.

I'm saying that in order to spark a debate and challenge that belief. Would anyone please list some actions taken by the US government which is similar in nature to the takeover illustrated here?

It seems very similar to what happened in the middle ages. Before the rise of the merchant class, specifically the ability to defend themselves, bullies stepped in and took what they wanted. Pg went into some detail about that in one of his essays about wealth. The phrase "if you let the nerds keep their lunch money, you rule the world" comes to mind. Might that be changing? Is Russia harming itself by taking these actions? What ways might this action backfire against them? Or is this a new model for how governments should treat corporations that dare challenge their authority?

EDIT: I really didn't mean to start a flamewar. My apologies. I was hoping to get people's thoughts on whether governments of the future are going to do this kind of thing more and more (including the US). I should have led with that rather than cheerleading America.

EDIT2: I would again like to stress the international nature of this threat. This type of governmental action is something that seems likely to eventually threaten us all, regardless of where we're located. As such, the best thing to do would be to discuss possible ways of protecting ourselves.

I would also like to apologize for accidentally insulting everyone who lives in places other than America. Phrasing my comment the way I did was a boneheaded thing to do. It currently reads like an elaborate form of trolling, as if I'm snubbing non-Americans. But in fact I'm just poor with the pen and in reality meant to debate the merits of starting companies in various countries, and to call attention to this international threat. I'm quite sorry for how it sounded. In the meantime, can anyone think of ways of protecting ourselves from centralized government action against businesses?

Your average revenue per customer is meaningless heapanalytics.com

programminggeek 12 minutes ago 0 replies      
Well, you can think that averages are meaningless, but they do mean something. If your average sale is $10 and you are spending on average $9 to acquire them, you have a 10% margin on average.

Segmenting is great and can actually move the averages wildly, but that doesn't mean the averages are pointless. It means that averages are just one view of the data.

If I want a really high level view of the data, an average is great. If I want a super low level view of the data, looking at each customer or small groups of customers is great too. It depends on what you want to know and what problem you are trying to solve.

Use the right tool for the job.

brockf 26 minutes ago 2 replies      
I'm not sure I follow this, or buy into the suggestion of the post.

First, I don't see how it's true that data with a relatively large amount of variance will tend to be power law distributed. Defining with a "large amount" of variance is tough (it depends on your intuition and choice of variance metric) but there are lots of distributions with considerable variance that are, for example, normally distributed (many more than are power law distributed, as far as I can tell).

Second, if you find that this is misleading your projections, why not just use a different kind of average? For example, if you just want to know, "How much is the next customer likely to spend?", you might use the mode. Or, if you want a more robust average (i.e., less likely to be seriously thrown off by outliers), why not use the median? You can even complement these with confidence intervals if you want to get a sense of their precision.

Like twic already said, you need some indicator to understand what's going on with your business. I think that in many cases, this will be the mean. But if you want something more robust or more practical, perhaps the median or mode might suit you better.

twic 1 hour ago 2 replies      
So what indicator statistics are good, then? "Take a look at the entire picture, not just the average" is great, but what am i going to put on my dashboard? What am i going to make my goal for the year?

On the technical side, when trying to boil down scads of metric datapoints into a single number, the statistics i usually end up using are the median and the 95th centile (or some higher centile). The median gives some sort of rough idea of where the middle of the main mass distribution is, ignoring the extremes, and the high centile gives an indication of where the top edge of the main mass is, ignoring freak outliers.

Would those be any use for revenue per customer?

Would we be better off with the median and some number that tries to capture the shape of the power law? Something that says "for every dollar you go up in revenue, the number of users drops by X%", or something like that?

mrkurt 1 hour ago 0 replies      
It depends on your funnel consistency. If you are selling a self service product with transparent pricing, fully realized ARPU can be a solid number. It will change as your customer base changes, and there still could be outliers, but it's decent and easy to reason about (and project with).

If, however, you are kind of self service, but do an Enterprise sales deal ... you have two funnels with two vastly different customer profiles. Not only is ARPU bad in this scenario, most numbers are.

The trick is narrowing the scope of a given metric enough that you can use it to make good decisions, and but not so much that it ignores important parts of a business.

Mz 1 hour ago 0 replies      
I am vaguely reminded of a recent discussion* about negotiating with Steve Jobs where kind of the reverse point was made: The author was advised to make the number fit the scenario Steve claimed he wanted. The author did so, creatively, without lying.

A lot of people do not understand the substance behind the numbers and this leads to garbage in, garbage out. That's what this article is about: Understanding what's behind the numbers and not being fooled by them. The previous piece was also about understanding the substance and knowing how to work the numbers to make other people happy with the proposed deal.

In the US, visual alarms are pretty much standard under all the life safety codes for commercial buildings including apartments.[1] When they are not provided, both ADA and the Fair Housing Act [1] both dictate that owners provide them to accommodate the disability. If there's a problem, the fire marshal is a good person to call. They've typically pulled enough bodies from tragedies to last a lifetime, and this shapes their attitude toward non-compliance.

[1] Life safety codes as distinct from building codes apply to all buildings not just those newly constructed.

[2] Likewise for ADA and the Fair Housing Act. There are also state equivalents of both of these in many states that may be more restrictive.

A good lunchtime read, thanks. A couple of misleading topics and word of advice from our own experience [0] of starting Android development after years of iOS development:

- Google seems to moving away from Activities in favor of Fragments (can someone confirm this?) so we'd recommend a Fragment based design pattern;

- App navigation paradigms seem to be evolving quickly, with Google recently introducing Navigation Drawer as a standard [1], among others;

- Choosing the navigation paradigm first seems to important as these seem to be Fragment based, using Bundle objects to share data between Fragments;

- Use Android Studio [2] because it seems a) Google is going to standardize on this, and b) the navigation paradigms are offered as app template options and can be a good starting point presumably with 'blessed' Fragment design patterns.

Good luck!

Redis new data structure: the HyperLogLog antirez.com

mitchellh 6 hours ago 4 replies      
This is nice. At my last job, we developed an extremely high performance HyperLogLog server (hlld). Take a look if you're interested:


It processes over a 1MM ops per second on a basic MacBook Air. In production we saw it handle more. We never had to scale it over one server in order to handle millions of distinct metrics.

As an ad company, my last company had a ridiculous fanout of metrics for every request. Every ad serve API request (of which we got thousands per second) would fan out to over 150 metrics EACH. So for 1000 requests per second we'd have to modify 150,000 metrics. Raw SQL updates of course fall down with this (even if we tone back their durability). Instead, we opted for accumulated for 10 to 60 seconds in bloomd and hlld and statsite, then aggregating and doing a single bulk SQL update. Worked incredibly well.

We used it in combination with bloomd: https://github.com/armon/bloomd Bloomd is another super high performance data structure server, but this time for bloom filters.

You can read the READMEs to learn why they're better for their specific tasks. Both have been running in production for 2+ years. If you're not going to be using the data structures that much then Redis is a good choice. We personally used these servers alongside Redis for k/v.

HyperLogLog counters are one of my favourite things. They're incredibly clever.

So also, you can combine this idea with the idea of bloom filters (another probabilistic data structure) in a really interesting way.The goal is to have a _lot_ of counters in a fixed amount of space.

First part is to encode your HyperLogLog counter in unary. So each counter generally only takes up a few bits.

Quick unary tutorial: in unary you count with a sequence of 1's (followed by 0 to signify the end of the number). 3 is encoded as 1110. 5 is 111110. 7 is 11111110. You get the idea.

So also, we're just estimating cardinality, not an exact count. We're estimating if we've seen 2^n things... not n things. Counting to a billion is going to be: 1 billion ~= 2^30 ~= 31 bits.

So you can store all these counters in a big array of bits (a bitmap) and index into it using a hash function. As you probably guessed, all these unary counters will end up overlapping each other in weird ways.

But! The cool thing is if you use a bloom filter to insert and retrieve multiple counters using different hash functions.. and then average the results. The more of these probabilistic and messed up counters you average .. the better the results get!

It's kind of opposite of the usual programmer "junk in, junk out" problem. In this case, the more junk you combine, the better the results. Pretty neat huh? :)

I don't have links to the papers behind these ideas sorry. I learnt most of this from a presentation by Alex Sharp at PyCon Au. Edit: found link to talk - http://pyvideo.org/video/1621/big-data-with-python

This article explains some of this stuff a bit better: http://highscalability.com/blog/2012/4/5/big-data-counting-h...

If I've understood correctly, this relates to the German Tank Problem: using statistical analysis to estimate a count.

With German Tanks, you have limited data available to create an estimate from (a few serial numbers, in the canonical case). But in this case, you deliberately limit the data stored in order to keep it at a manageable level: hash to randomise and then store only summary stats.

Pretty cool. Actually very cool, I really like it.

However, are there any interesting use cases for this? It seems to me that it's not particularly useful until your list is long enough to make search/sort/storage difficult: that's rare even at web-scale, no?

I am curious: does anyone here on HN have a registrar to recommend who they know (preferably from experience) would actually be more helpful in this circumstance?

Because from the sound of it, the unwillingness of the registrars (both of them) to take action here without being compelled to by a lawsuit is the root of the problem. The FBI's willingness to be helpful is nice, but doesn't solve the root problem, and as a law enforcement agency they can only really help in cases where they manage to "catch the criminal". And paying off the criminal just isn't an acceptable solution (although stopping the payment immediately is cool and all).

I would be willing to select a registrar on the basis of their policies, not their prices. Policies like this sort of dispute resolution and policies about how they handle DMCA notices or government subpoenas (and non-subpoenas), if only I knew which registrars had the best reputations for these things.

Here are 3 simple changes that can prevent this:

* use 2 factor authentication (if your registrar doesn't find one that does or better yet, have ICANN rule that all registrars must have it)

* ICANN rule that says if a domain has been recently moved it can be frozen by previous owner until the matter is cleared up

* whois privacy will not only hide who the owner of the site is but also who the registrar is (if you don't know who the registar is among the hundreds out there, you can't target the right one with social engineering!)

I am absolutely shocked at how simple it is for this sort of fraud to take place. If someone calls GoDaddy, for instance, and says "Hi, I'd like to transfer a domain name. Here's all of my proof that I am who I say that I am." I understand that GoDaddy, ever dutifully obliged to their customers, will transfer the domain with haste. However, should there not be some sort of probationary period? 45 days or so where both GoDaddy and the new "owner" of the domain both have full, master control? It seems to me that an account manager in GoDaddy could handle this task easily enough. Simply coordinate with the new owner, notify that there's a dispute, and lock everything down until a resolution has been completed. Am I missing something here or are these companies simply lazy and unmotivated?

It would be interesting to know what would have happened if she had instead waited for the legal methods to play out. Instead, it's a story of one trick undoing another trick.

Impressive that he managed to say so much without mentioning head-of-line blocking, which is the main TCP problem with realtime apps.

This is not due to congestion control, but because of the ordered byte stream semantics of TCP. You can't deliver a packet until the retransmission dance is done for any previous lost packets.

As an aside, these days it's worth noting that a 3G, WLAN or 4G link layer will try very hard not to drop any packets. So when you're doing UDP, watch out for those 40000 millisecond old packets that will burst to your lap once the rain cloud moves away from the cell tower or your co-worker's cocoa blings in the microwave.

We use TCP for some things, UDP for some things, and our own variant on Reliable UDP for others.

We use TCP for sending real-time vessel track data to the central correlation servers, because they need to know if the connection has dropped and change their behavior accordingly. Traffic volume is low, so congestion throttling and re-tries are not a problem. The system is able to cope with reports being delayed and then coming in much later (and catching up) because reports are time-stamped and the correlator works in fuzzy 6D phase-space.

We use UDP for sending live radar data because, frankly, if you've missed one sector of data you really, really don't want to delay subsequent sectors while waiting for the data that will be irrelevant in 2 seconds anyway. The compression and encryption schemes are specially crafted to allow for lost packets while still using solid implementations of off-the-shelf algorithms where appropriate, and lovingly hand-crafted algorithms for the non-security critical aspects.

And I can't tell you what we use our locally defined reliable UDP for.

Years ago, i read about some application protocol (for a game, i think) that sat on top of UDP. It packed small messages into datagrams for transmission, and handled acking and redelivery.

One of the cute things it did was improve reliability for critical messages by preemptively sending them twice, in successive datagrams. That allowed the protocol to avoid an ack-miss-retransmit cycle for those packets, as long as it was only a single datagram that was dropped.

If you absolutely positively need to have that lowest lag time between points then UDP is the way to go. However1) UDP will drop the occasional packet.2) UDP will NOT work behind many corporate firewalls.3) UDP connections between users on separate networks will fail due to random configuration issues (I am sure there is a reason, just don't know what it is after years of looking).4) UDP connections between users on the same DHCP servers requires a different addresses then the global address to make connections.5) UDP connections can time out if you don't send anything for a few minutes. Easy to fix, hard to find.

In the virtual world platform my team wrote, we started using UDP exclusively, then moved to mixed TCP and UDP, then moved to using TCP for everything except P2P voice connections. with UDP I had always dreaded going into see a potential corporate client, and not knowing if my networking was going to make it through the firewall.

The article emphasizes that TCP congestion control can make TCP underperform with respect to the actual available bandwidth. So True and So Frustrating!

But it doesn't seem to talk about the virtues of congestion control - the primary one being it prevents the collapse of the Internet. Reacting to packet loss by just trying harder results in nothing but a network filled with doomed packets. This is not theoretical - before Van Jacobson that was the Internet.

I'm not defending the status quo nor TCP - TCP has deep problems figuring out what is really loss. and it speeds up too slowly but still doesn't manage to slow down when it should resulting in induced delay. But the mere fact that is worried about congestion (not just unreliability - one result of congestion) and sharing the channel isn't its problem.

have a look at QUIC, ledbat, Minion and the recent IETF TAPS BoF for work going on improving transport options in these areas. Its just the wrong takeaway to read that article and say "UDP is better because it doesn't have congestion control" - you need to consider CC in any reliable UDP based transport you roll too.

rfc 5405 provides some advice (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5405) - its a little dated but still useful.

The reality is that with broadband connections these days there is generally little or no packet loss unless your ISP is having problems. In the case where you are getting packet loss it usually tends to be around 50%, so UDP is going to have trouble as well.

Also, these days with fast retransmit TCP isn't as bad as it used to be when there are network problems.

I've been using TCP for over 20 years for multi-player games, VOIP and web conferencing, and it works incredibly well. Even if you do all the legwork to get UDP working reliably (which TCP give you for free), you still have the problem of firewalls.

I'll defend UDP.

UDP is the honey badger of the internet protocol suite.

UDP is all about the transaction. UDP is standing on a cliff yelling, "Come at me, bro", whether you're there or not.

UDP is a man's protocol doing real shit like bootstrapping your ass and slapping an IP on you. Get up, motha fucka!

UDP will talk shit to one of you or all of you. UDP ain't scared. UDP brought the fear.

UDP understands that you may be slow sometimes. So UDP will wait for your sorry ass. UDP grew up without a father, too.

UDP sends a message and couldn't give a fuck if you got it or not.

UDP got a message from you saying that you got his messages and guess what? UDP didn't even open it! Not one fuck given.

Don't try to shake UDP's hand! You crazy?

And, when UDP dies because you weren't available, UDP doesn't shed a tear. UDP is hardcore. He's going out even if he knows you ain't there. UDP is a goddam one-man slaughter house. Why?

Because UDP doesn't give a fuck.

One side note - what the protocol is on the wire and how you're using it are not quite the same thing. With regard to head-of-line, in principle you can look at later TCP packets before a dropped packet comes in. Of course, correcting framing may be expensive or impossible, and (more importantly, for most applications) if the OS is handling TCP for you you'd have to find some way to cajole it into passing those packets to you.

This seems like a difficult business to execute on.

1) You need capital to buy the machines to give out and slowly collect $60 on. Once the capital runs out, more is needed, but without getting capital quick enough, new customers have to be turned down, growth slows, and capital becomes even more difficult to acquire.

2) Since the tech and product can be easily purchased by anyone, there is room for other businesses to enter the space quickly and drive a pricing war. If large chains got involved they could offer a lower price and push local same day service.

3) Machines break. Without a hassle-free return / warranty, customers will likely get frustrated, refuse to pay, and make collections very difficult.

Not to say it can't be done, the leasing industry is fairly large, but I'd thought I'd share my thoughts on the problems that might arise. Reminds me of when they did PCs for 19.95 a month plus internet for a contract term.

I really hope this is real. There have been a couple of occasions where I've been waiting for a 'big leap' in Apple's annual hardware refresh, but circumstances have dictated that I need a new computer right now[1]. Being able to simply rent a laptop for a couple months would be killer.

[1] Specifically what's happened to me in the past is that I left a job and had to return my work laptop, and in another instance someone dropped a pint of beer onto my laptop.

I hope that they offer next day replacement machines. As it is now, when my laptop dies, I go to the Apple store, they say it will take a week to repair so I buy a new one on the spot. I later get the old one fixed and give it to my son as a hand-me-down. I've done that twice now, but it isn't the most predictable way to always have a Macbook.

It would be kind of cool to be able to get a replacement machine by FedEx the next day, and stay current on my hardware. (They tend to last a bit longer than 2 years).

This could be great for businesses. To pay $60 for a machine for 2 years (for example) means a total cost of $1440. If this service includes something like an 'instant repair', i.e. they just send you a new one and take care of repairs, so that you aren't ever without a machine, it could be worth the slightly higher cost. Also, most companies will want upgrades/replacements every 2 years anyway, so this way they get that, don't need to worry about what to do with an old machine, which they probably wouldn't sell anyway.

A lot of psudeo arguments against this in this thread. I don't think there is any problem with using the "platform" in this way its pretty much a newsletter or a mailing list which is very standard.

I'm interested in seeing what you can really do with email looking at it as a platform with 2.0 eyes in mind.

One other thing. I think call intent will be what sets you apart and if that's the case why does the platform matter, why can't you have email, RSS, and a web app?

I get you want to focus on doing something new with something old. That's cool. Just dont cut potential power readers off because you use the wrong platform. Be email first RSS second if it helps you think about it. (No reason you can't pivot other platforms later)

I've been using email as an application platform for years, and I agree with everything this author is saying.

I wish, however, that he hadn't written this article for two reasons. 1) Email suffers from the tragedy of the commons. The more email that is sent the less valuable each email app is. 2) Current email tools are woefully inadequate to deal with the existing volume of email users receive. Worst is the fact that email forces users into a LIFO queue and doesn't allow for import-based ordering. We need innovation in email processing more than we need more email based applications. (Even SMS has a better model for organizing data than modern email: one thread per counter party group.)

Email sucked for a decade because spam got out of control. I ran a hand-built email server in my home for years, and know this problem decently well. However, with the ability to train their filters based on SO MANY people, Google fixed it. (Other systems vastly improved as well.) With the signal-to-noise ratio being largely a solved problem these days, it makes email a viable "platform" again.

I've been using Circa for the past few months (maybe even up to a year?), and I much prefer it to email.

I've come to associate email with either personal correspondence, technical support, or spam.

The thing about a website or an app is that it's segmented. I have to actively decide, "Now's the time for this activity" instead of an email deciding for me.

Also, I didn't know theSkimm was a young-women's thing. My girlfriend (a young woman) gets it, but I didn't think it was specifically "for" her.

And it becomes a way to navigate through links in email. You send a link to read@snipek.com, then you'll get the content of the web page in email, without leaving mail client to browser.

2) Read news (http://snipek.com/news/)

3) Create web page for your email messages, so you can share the web page on social network (http://snipek.com/web) -- forward any message to web@snipek.com

I run a similar service over at The Daily Water Cooler http://www.the-dwc.co/ so I definitely agree with your line of thinking regarding email as one of the most easily accessible platforms.

My service might be closer to Dave Pell's NextDraft or a more general Term Sheet by Dan Primack though because it's really just me curating the content so I generally add more personal flavor and don't really have an algorithm to help source the content.

Kind of curious where TheSkimm goes though. They got some nice funding recently from Homebrew but clearly are aiming to be more than just a newsletter. They also used to be more young professional woman-centric, but have started to slowly downplay that.

I gotta wonder though, why the Ivy League focus?

Anyway, good luck with the venture! Happy to see more people informed about the news.

Before making conclusions, this graph needs to be controlled for at least one outside factor: the overall geographic distribution of companies.

If one were to take the complete bipartite graph of [All Startups, All Fortune 500s] and plot the distances between connected vertices, I would not be surprised to find a distribution graph similar to the one shown above. Most companies are in population centers, and most population centers are on the coasts.

I have no reason to doubt that the subset of that graph that contains acquisition relationships is, in fact, more heavily skewed towards proximity. But, that is currently a conjecture, and the data does not support the conclusion (although it does not disprove it, which is something).

jmathai 2 hours ago 0 replies      
Distance/proximity is, from my experience, one of the largest factors you can control for your startup. Not specifically for acquisitions but also for sales (if you're B2B).

I've done two startups in the same space. The first was located in Cincinnati, OH and my current one in SV. They are frighteningly similar though the space has changed dramatically.

It depends on your market to know where the optimal location is for fostering relationships. Hint: it's not always SV (though it often is).

You hear it time and time again that relationships happen very serendipitously. And by serendipitously I mean you meet someone in a coffee shop that will later introduce you to someone that changes the course of your start-up forever.

The depth of the network in SV is extremely deep. My experience in Cincinnati (albiet 8 years ago) was that it wasn't as serendipitous and it wasn't nearly as deep. Things may have changed and in places like NYC it might actually be similar to SV.

My $.02 is that relationships are critical. Making location equally critical.

Zynga has acquired 20+ companies on crunchbase. Is Zynga biased towards acquiring companies in the bay area, or are companies that Zynga would be inclined to acquire mostly located in the bay area anyway? Or is it that bay area startups tend to perform better / receive more funding than their non-bay counterparts?

One thing that is really hurting tech (as we see, in the distribution of capital and acquisitions) is placism. It's not good for the advantaged places (San Francisco and possibly New York) nor for the 99% of the country that's losing out.

VCs (the only investors in this game, sadly, because bank loans require personal liability, precluding anything that has any real risk) assume that if you're not in the Bay Area, you're not serious because "all the talent" wants to be there. It causes a vicious cycle. You hear a lot of murmuring about second- or third-tier hubs picking up when, in reality, things are probably the most skewed they've ever been.

It's not healthy for all the innovation to be allowed only in one area. The real investors (the people with the money) don't care where their money is spend as long as it makes a profit. But we have a system that forces people to compete for scarce space in what has become a congested and hideously overpriced part of the country... even though rent and living costs exert a gigantic drag on new business formation.

The only people who win under placism are VCs, big-city landlords, and HR departments (because they can look at a resume and evaluate it based on geography).

In the comparison charts they line up their prepackaged servers with Amazon's and then compare price differences, often coming in lower than AWS. In one paragraph they make a note of this:

    Note that configuration parameters for Azure instances     and AWS instances are not necessarily a perfect match,     e.g. Azure A5 instance provides similar compute power     with slightly less memory (Azure 14 GB RAM vs. AWS     17 GB RAM).
That's a ~17.6% difference, which is not so slight.

For those of you who don't know, Scott is really the driving force behind Microsoft's embrace of open source. The opening of ASP.NET, the .NET Framework and countless other techs would not have happened without his push.

On top of all that, he is a coder at heart and still deeply in touch with the community. You can email him directly and usually get a response within hours which is astonishing given his role and responsibilities.

This is a win for coders everywhere, regardless of your position on Microsoft and how you feel about them in general - ScottGu is one of the great guys pushing technology forward and has a serious increase in firepower every time he moves up the ladder at Microsoft. This position is tantamount to 'head of all things developer' at Microsoft.

Hey everyone, hope your April is off to a killer start!

Like in last month's Who is hiring I wanted to share all our numbers for complete transparency. March just came to a close and Buffer stands at 1.4M total users served by a small 21 person team spread across 14 cities and 5 continents. 130,000 of our users are actively using the product each month. We generated $350,000 in March, and we have $580,000 in the bank. The average salary at the company is $98,000 and our total funding to date is $450,000 which we raised in December 2011, for which we gave up 14% of the company. I'm sharing all of this because one of the highest values we have at Buffer is to be fully transparent, and I'd love for you to be part of the incredible journey we've embarked upon.

At 16% month over month revenue growth on average in the last 6 months, we're seeing increasing demand to build out the product further and help our fast-growing customer base with all their social media problems. To achieve this, we'd love your help with some interesting engineering challenges.Do any of these areas stand out for you? I'd really love to hear from you:

    - Reliability Hacker (we're sending 450,000 posts to      social networks every day, our architecture is still      not ideal)    - Android Lead (our Android app has half a million      downloads but currently no full-time developer!)    - iOS Hacker (our favorite people who use Buffer are      all crying out for an iPad app)    - Growth Hacker (our landing page conversion is at 7%,      we'd love your help improving it and many other      metrics)    - Frontend Hacker (last month 130,000 people used      Buffer, we'd love to improve our dashboard interface      and extensions for them)
Some of the tech we work with: PHP, Python, MongoDB, AWS (Elastic Beanstalk, Elasticache, SQS), Backbone.js, Grunt.js, Android, iOS).

    - We're completely open about salary and equity, in      fact here is a spreadsheet of all individual salaries:      https://docs.google.com/a/bufferapp.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AgrWVeoG5divdE81a2wzcHYxV1pacWE1UjM3V0w0MUE&usp=drive_web#gid=1.      It's most likely you'd fall into a range of      $85,000-$150,000 and 0.1%-1%.    - We're a fully distributed remote team, and we come      together 3 times a year for super fun retreats.      The last one was in Thailand in December, our next      is Cape Town in April!    - We have a big focus on culture, that's the main thing      we think about when someone joins the team. Here is      our slide deck of values:      http://www.slideshare.net/Bufferapp/buffer-culture-03 
I'll read through emails with our CTO Sunil, I hope yours might be part of that. Send him a quick note at thenexthacker@bufferapp.com. If you'd like you can check out more details about all the areas we need help with at http://jobs.bufferapp.com

I'm excited about the chance to work with you. If you have any questions about our culture, product or journey so far, add a reply to this - I'll be checking throughout the day to get back to you :-)

San Francisco, Mountain View - Matasano and iSEC Partners [WILL RELOCATE]

There are horrors beyond life's edge that we do not suspect, and once in a while man's evil prying calls them just within our range.

Talented tech people seek out jobs with interesting challenges. Different firms, different challenges. Here, a chance to grapple with large-scale payments; there, a purpose-built "big data" storage system; elsewhere, software running on an exotic platform; look hard enough and you may even find custom hardware to tinker with.

Consider a greater challenge: the one lurking in the shadows beneath all the other challenges; a maddening, beautiful challenge that awaits all applications, be they YC startups or giant tech companies, the hunt for which leads through the crevices of the payment processing gateways, the arcane backend of the storage system, and the insane, non-euclidian instruction patterns output by embedded compilers. The discovery of the unknown horrible secrets of our universe, the bending of those secrets to your will, and the billing of clients for PDF documentation of those secrets along with their exploitation steps and mitigation advice.

Matasano and iSEC together comprise one of the largest pure software security firms in the world. Our clients are the best companies --- and most of the largest of them. Our teams include some of the best researchers in the field.

I hire for both firms, our practices interlocked in an unholy embrace. You can read more about our hiring process at http://www.matasano.com/careers. Or, for a more philosophical take, here: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=7259845. Put simply: we hire for aptitude, we ignore resumes, we respect and appreciate candidates, and we put real effort finding good fits. iA Cthulhu, iA iA, &c &c. Also, unlimited soda.

You can find out more by mailing <careers at matasano.com>. A human being who knows what they're talking about will talk to you. And I'd like to think we're fun to talk to!

Hi! Were Red Hot Labs from San Francisco and we're looking for a FULL-TIME DEV (authorized already to work in the US, no remote, no interns, thanks!)

We're on a mission to revolutionize how mobile developers harness their data. Our product, still in beta, functions as the central hub for all the services mobile developers already use. By weaving together the data from these disparate services, we gain a comprehensive view of the app and are uniquely positioned to deliver insights and value back to the developer.

This isn't our first trip around the block. Our previous startup was acquired by Zynga and our core technology turned into FarmVille and the rest of Zyngas most successful games. It was a wild ride and now were full steam ahead on a new adventure. We're well backed by folks such as A16Z, Greylock, SVAngel, DCVC, and more.

We're looking for passionate, energetic, highly talented engineers to join our team. By becoming a foundational member of our team you will help shape the direction of our product, company and culture. Were believe in constantly challenging ourselves to learn new things and would love to teach you what we know and learn from you as well.

We want all engineering members of the team to be full-stack engineers and well-rounded individuals. But, we're especially excited about the following engineering profile:


  Senior Systems Engineer: You've architected and scaled backend systems to   millions of users.  You've put out every kind of fire and learned a lot in the   process. You understand the tradeoffs of different data stores, server   architectures, and low-level services. 

  - Redis, MySQL, Rails for our backend API.  - Mostly AWS with a little bit of Heroku for our hosting.  - AngularJS, jQuery, Underscore, Node.JS with D3 for our dashboard and web apps.  - 3rd party services: Facebook, Mixpanel, Stripe, Mailgun

Do any of the above profiles sound like you? Send us an email at: jobs@redhotlabs.com

Or, learn a little more about us here: http://www.redhotlabs.com/jobs

Weft - http://weft.io - Boston, MA (LOCAL) + San Francisco, CA (LOCAL) + Eastern Europe (REMOTE).

   ===========================   ====== What we do =========   ===========================
We're a logistics visibility platform (read: Waze for Cargo). Weft tracks shipping containers using low-cost hardware to make sure that shipments get to where they're supposed to be on time and intact, saving billions in lost value due to cargo shrink and disrupted supply chains. We take the info we get from the hardware and figure out where the bottlenecks in the supply chain are, predict whether or not a shipment is going to make it to its destination on time, and dynamically reroute/reschedule shipments so that we can optimize the system as a whole. Really neat stuff. We're working on a lot of the things that happen once you have that data, but I can't share much about it here

   ===========================   ===== How we do it ========   ===========================
Web stack -> clojure (immutant) + postgres/cassandra/riak -- we use middleman + enlive (and a bit of hiccup) for templating, meaning that we're pretty flexible about frontend tech.

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

Hardware -> think cell phone on crack (atmel avr xmega, a bunch of sensors, gps, gsm, etc). Working integrated chip in the sub-$5 price point now! Have some pilots running with v1 hw.

   ===========================   ====== And the rest =======   ===========================
We've got some very interesting partners and customers (ranging from telcos to enterprise software providers to regional and international logistics companies). We also have some top tier investors!

Looking for help on mobile, frontend, and data science sides!

I should also probably mention that we have a team with a bunch of industry vets!

If this sounds interesting, please shoot me an email at marc@weft.io!

Detroit-based start-up (funded, stable, paying competitive salaries) looking for experienced Magento developers.

Chalkfly.com is looking for an amazing, experienced, OO PHP developer with deep Magento experience to join our fast-growing, first-rate development team. As a software developer, you would responsible for end-to-end product development, from architecture, to development, to rollout. You must be comfortable participating in design and code reviews, as well as delivering accurate estimates, providing regular development progress feedback and consistently meeting project deadlines. Our developers are effective at explaining complex ideas and concepts to non-technical team members.

This is a full time position that would work out of our downtown Detroit office. Occasional telecommuting (like one day a week) is on the table, but we really need people who can be in the office most of the time.

Here's our stats:

    Company size: 19    Current dev team size: 5 (and hiring as fast as we can find good people)    Stack: LAMP    Version Control: Git    Bug Tracking: Github Issues    Project Management: Basecamp    Mac or PC: Dealer's choice. We currently have 2 devs on mac and 1 on PC.    Office style: Open floor plan, collaborative working environment, very casual.    Dev methodologies: We borrow elements of various frameworks, but in general we work in monthly sprint cycles, daily stand-ups, weekly overview meetings.    Hours: The dev team likes to have people here by 10am most days.
A word about Detroit: The city gets a lot of bad press. It might not look like an attractive option to people who are considering offers from NY or CA, but I would really encourage people to at least take a look. We're in a building with about 20 other tech start-ups who have all received funding. There is serious investment happening in the city right now. Two months ago I looked up and Warren Buffet (completely unannounced) was 10 feet away from my desk (he's partnering on several projects in the city). We sit right across from the Detroit Twitter office. We're on the same block as the Detroit Google office. Comerica Park, where the Detroit Tigers play, is 100 yards from our office. Ford Field, where the Lions play, is another about 300 yards away. The part of the city we're in is clean and safe with newly built downtown living alternatives. All I'm saying is: give it a look.

If you're interested in finding out more, shoot me an email at evan@chalkfly.com.

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

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

Here's a testimonial we received this week:


Two year ago, I would never have imagined that any 13-year-old could be in Calculus BC. Today, I am 13 and wrapping up my second semester of it, and with an A+, too, thanks largely in part to this site. Sal, I would say you are the best teacher I ever had. Teachers in school just don't seem to have the time or, in some cases, even the knowledge to pay as much attention as you do to the actual intuition of the material being taught. How am I supposed to understand a theorem if I don't know where it came from, why it works, or even what it really means? Khan Academy also seems to explain everything in a very easy to understand, and even fun, manor. You make calculus almost as easy as simple arithmetic. Anyway, thank you very much.


Every month we get hundreds of letters like this from people in all walks of life who're thankful for our free, high-quality educational content.

Most of you reading this are familiar with Sal's videos, but we also have hundreds of videos by other teachers, partnerships with organizations like MoMA and the California Academy of Sciences, and a huge library of interactive exercises. Over 20 million math problems are done every week on our site.

And now we're doing a big mobile push. Around 20% of our traffic comes from phones and tablets. We're totally overhauling our iOS app and we now need a great mobile designer. (We've got some good leads for good devs already, but if you're a dev please do apply too.)

We need a great mobile designer, one who lives and breathes mobile and really understands what works and what doesn't. If you join us now, you can be a major influence on an app that is guaranteed to have millions of users. We have loads of high-quality educational content just waiting to be shared within a great product. We have partnerships lined up around the block to promote your work. We just need you.

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

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

Search scientist. Amsterdam. Relocation and Visa provided. And I mean real search scientist, not just someone who put together Solr that one time.

We have a client who has a fantastic position which has opened up. Theyre searching for you because youll be searching for them: they need an expert search engine/data mining specialist and very few people can fill this role.

Youll have several years of experience with search engines and (preferably) e-commerce, a proven capability to mine data and a Masters or Doctorate in Statistics, Math, AI, Computer Science or a comparable background. This isnt for someone whos just set up Elasticsearch, Solr, or some other search engine (though that helps). Its for someone who can mine the data of customer searches and provably demonstrate they can create better search results for customers. You wont be waiting for tasks to do: youll be deciding the tasks and how to do them.

How do you exclude a location 500 meters away from the one a customer is searching for but its across an international boundary or a river with no bridge? How do you do that in a performant manner? Or maybe searches in different languages should be treated differently based on cultural preferences? And do different categories of customers have different search needs? How would they be categorized and how would different search results impact them? Or maybe you can demonstrate that the above wouldnt impact sales and you have a better solution?

The possibilities are endless and the position itself is very high level within the company. Theyre offering a generous salary, an awesome work/life balance, a generous vacation package and a catch: you have to let them pay to relocate your household (even rats, if you want to) to the heart of Amsterdam, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. If youre going to be sitting down sketching out how to group customers using adaptive resonance theory, wouldnt it be lovely to do that while sipping a Grolsh, eating bitterballen, next to a beautiful Dutch canal?

And with 26 days of vacation and 9 public holidays, youll have seven weeks off a year to enjoy. Take a relaxing two-week road trip across Europe and return to work with several weeks of holiday left.

Given the extremely high level of expertise needed for this role, our client realizes that the few people who are both capable and willing to accept this role will need a relocation package. And if you have a family, our client will take care of them, too. Have special relocation requirements? As long as you are willing to work in Amsterdam, bring them up and the company will see what they can do. On top of that, youll probably qualify for something called the 30% ruling. This is a law passed by the Dutch government to attract top experts like you. When you qualify, youll be taxed on only 70% of your salary. The other 30% will be handed to you tax-free, effectively giving you a huge pay rise on top of an already generous salary.

This is a high level position in the company and youll be given a lot of autonomy to make things happen. Further, the success criteria for the job are extremely clear and youll be given all the tools you need to directly measure your success. The exact nature of the role can potentially be tailored to meet your personal preferences.

The work environment is laid-back, English is the working language, and youll be working with other expats with a sense of adventure. Amsterdam is a friendly, low-crime city and almost everyone speaks English fluently, but if you want Dutch lessons, our client will help. Heck, if you have other requirements, bring them and get them on the table. For the right candidate, everythings open to discussion.

If this sounds interesting and you want more information, contact us at jobs@allaroundtheworld.fr.

    Senior PHP Engineer    We Are Base    Bournemouth, United Kingdom    Full time, in house 
A bit about the role

This is a genuine opportunity to work alongside talented people to innovate and build digital services that make a difference to people every day, including an exciting product spin out. Working in an increasingly connected life, the role looks a little something like this:

1st class engineer

You will be used to working as part of an unsilod production team, where designers work alongside developers, in agile sprints where theyre useful. Your main skill set is writing PHP but you may have experience with other languages (like JavaScript/Node.js, Go, Objective C or Java) that has influenced how you code. Youll be familiar with PHP frameworks, such as Symfony, Laravel, Aura & Zend, and building on top of content management systems, such as WordPress. Youll be comfortable with object orientated design patterns, unit testing, APIs & databases. Every pony at Base is capable of more than one trick. Youll have an understanding of usability and how that works with functionality

Data hungry

Youll have a keen interest in datasets, with good skills in filtering the signals from the noise. Youll have an eye to the future and know that tracking something now will make for way more interesting times later. Youll be comfortable integrating 3rd party systems through APIs youve helped architect.

Open all hours

Youll have a keen interest in the way openness in technology (and in particular open data) can change things. And youll have ideas that mash one set with another, whether youve realised them yet or not. Our developers come up with projects for our clients, rarely the other way round.

Solver of riddles

You wont know the answer to every question that comes your way, but youll be someone who knows how to hunt it down. This job isnt forensic science, but being able to piece the jigsaw back together and crack the nut is your daily bread. Inquisitive by nature you, like us, want to understand what makes things tick to make them better.

Getting shit done

Youll understand technical debt and be acutely aware that most pieces of code arent perfect, but youll be good at balancing the need to do something beautifully and the need to do it fast, including both where you can. Youll regularly use Git, bash scripting and Sass, or similar, because of what they bring to the table.

Commercially aware

You will be able to develop a genuine understanding of our client businesses, allowing you to identify opportunities for and with them. The best developers understand the end goal, not just their role in a project. Youll be able to think commercially about the client business, as well as deliver work that doesnt fall over as its user base scales. Youll be expected to apply innovation to solve challenges, remembering that the best solutions are often beautiful in their simplicity.

Keen eye, tuned ear

An eye for detail and a high standard of output is important to the success of the role. Weve developed a code standard that gives us a bar to reach for. Youll play a part in developing and guiding it as we grow. Youll know that most project budgets dont allow interface designers to cover every inch of an application, so youre good at communicating with them and finding ways to smartly join the dots with a minimum of fuss.

Security and speed

Youll be hot on security too. The one thing that no one sees, until it goes to the wall. Then everyone knows about it. Youll know how to react when an overseas friend tries to gain access to one of your servers from your years of ethical hacking. Creating applications that are quick is fundamental to the role too. An understanding of devices, connections and optimisation is key to delivering the quality were after. But then you already know that.

About We Are Base

We're a digital service design company that builds user-centred digital services for businesses, using data they already have.

We help our clients realise opportunities by transforming their data into something new and valuable.Clients include Timex, Garmin and Nottingham City Transport.

At Base you will be part of a team of makers and doers, working across a variety of projects and clients. Were agile, but not dogmatic about it. Our process evolves to suit our needs.

We value and support CPD, actively seeking clients with a like-minded desire to push boundaries, providing you with an opportunity to build your experience and skills.

We practice a sustainable pace, recognising that we each have lives and families outside of work. Late nights and > 40 hour weeks are rare by design.

Earlier this year we launched a brand new user experience from the ground-up -- a new website and a completely new client-side interface. As a Frontend Engineer, you'd be working primarily on the latter.

The UI is written using angular.js served up by a lightweight node.js api proxy server. We use mocha/selenium web driver for our tests and only accept green builds via travis to be merged to master. Through our "eybot" on slackhq, we deploy stable code to production multiple times a day.

The UX engineering team at Engine Yard consists of 3 UI designers and 4 engineers (including myself). We're spread out across 8 timezones (Dublin through San Francisco), so experience working in a distributed team is key.

You'll get:

    * Competitive salary    * Full medical, dental and vision benefits    * 25 paid days off per year    * 401(k)    * We take care of your phone bill    * Paid travel to conferences

Great to have:

    * Thorough understanding of git    * Experience building REST apis    * Experience with multiple languages (and an understanding of their tradeoffs)    * Previously worked at a startup
If you're interested, shoot me your info at cewing@engineyard.com.

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

You may recognize us from the Web Framework Benchmarks that have been discussed on HN periodically: http://www.techempower.com/benchmarks/(We're working on getting Round 9 out as soon as possible--we swear!)

Here's the job:

TechEmpower, a small custom software development firm located in El Segundo, seeks developers with good object-oriented experience, preferably in Java, JavaScript, Python, and/or Ruby. We specialize in web application development but look for well-rounded application developers. If you are a solid programmer and a team player, this is an opportunity for you. Even if you don't have experience with everything listed in this ad, we offer excellent learning opportunities for those who are eager to expand their skill sets.Job Responsibilities

Working in small development teams, programmers participate in the architecture, design, and implementation of primarily Java, JavaScript, Python, C#, Ruby, and PHP code to meet client requirements for robust, high-performance, and secure sites and applications. Developers get exposure to several client projects and a variety of technologies over time.Job Qualifications

In addition to overall programming capability, candidates must have experience working on collaborative development teams and very strong communication skills. While we employ and enjoy the company of extroverts and introverts alike, we reiterate that the ability to communicate clearly is a must-have for our technical staff. That means writing professional e-mails and interpreting the nuances of clients' requirements by asking good questions, for example.

We work hard to estimate projects accurately so that schedules are reasonable and developers work a normal amount of hours per week. We rely on developers to contribute to those estimates and provide feedback as a project goes along to keep things on track.

Ideal candidates will have experience building all facets of software systems including the data model, business logic, and front-end. 3+ years of object-oriented design and development in Java, JavaScript, Python, or Ruby is desired. On the front-end, HTML 5 and CSS experience is required.

Knowledge of some or all of the following specific tools and technologies is a plus:

    Languages: Java, JavaScript, Python, C#, Ruby, PHP    Tools: Continuous Integration (Jenkins, Hudson, etc.), static code analysis (Sonar, etc.), Eclipse, IntelliJ, Ant, Maven    Web: vert.x, Play, Spring, Django, Rails, node.js, JSP, Servlets, jQuery, etc.    Mobile: iOS, Android, PhoneGap, jQuery Mobile or similar    Hosting: AWS (EC2, RDS, etc.), cloud servers, Linux configuration, application servers (Resin, etc.)    Data Persistence: ORM (Hibernate, etc.), MySQL, Postgres, MS SQL Server, Oracle, NoSQL (CouchDB, MongoDB, Cassandra, etc.) 
We like technical people who are not afraid to have strong opinions about technology but simultaneously keep an open mind and are flexible enough to work with whatever technology the task at hand requires.

That said, we're mostly looking for great developers who are great to work with. If you don't have experience with everything listed above (and who does?) but are still a solid developer eager to learn new things, you might be a great fit here.

Please apply here: http://jobs.techempower.com/hn

Periscope -- San Francisco -- User Experience Designer

Periscope is a data analysis tool that uses pre-emptive in-memory caching and statistical sampling to run data analyses really, really fast.

The slick UI and impressive backend speed sell the product, but the most important feature is the way the user experience encourages sharing and collaboration on charts and dashboards. Periscope spreads data throughout an organization, eventually instigating a culture change that makes the company more data-driven.

One customer recently said of Periscope: "It moved our data out of a closet and into a storefront."

We're hiring our first user experience designer, who will own this experience.

About You

   - You love the way that great user experience design enables users and makes them feel powerful within the product.   - You have great respect for how the little details impact user behavior and happiness.   - You understand that execution speed is a feature, and are comfortable with tradeoffs and making calls on the fly.   - You have a demonstrated track record of shipping designs in modern web or mobile apps.
About Us

   - We're a team of 4 ex-Google and Microsoft PMs and engineers with venture funding, paying customers, and a spacious loft apartment in SF to work out of.   - We consider our design that enables frictionless sharing and collaboration to be our most important feature.   - We strongly favor rapid shipping over endless review and iteration.   - We have close relationships with our customers. We see customers several times a month, and email with them several times a week.
Reach out to me (Harry, co-founder & CEO) at harry@periscope.io

Benzinga -- is getting massive amounts of new traffic and we need a Drupal developer, a front end dev, and a Django dev to help us handle all the new visitors either REMOTE or local full-time in Detroit, MI.

   Quick Stats       Customers include TD Ameritrade, Microsoft, Yahoo       20 million+ monthly readers       1000s of subscribers to our private Marketfy investor communities       Accelerated growth rate
We're a financial media company, a poor man's - lest we say everyday man's - Bloomberg competitor, and a financial product SaaS all forged together into a powerful trident that is attacking the high seas of Wall Street in a relentless pursuit of transparency.

And conquer we shall! We've grown 100% quarter over quarter all last year and another 100% just in the last month. Our team has surged to 30+ people and the waves of revenue washed together to form a rushing roar with just one of our products going from nothing to $200k/month in under a year.

Being a media company we find our way into all kinds of cool stuff. Our office is furnished with things like a $3000 high-end bed that was sent to us to review. We got to talk to and get pictures with Warren Buffett and Lloyd Blankfein (CEO of Goldman Sachs) when they came to Detroit.

But, you interject, finance is one of the toughest startup seas to sail upon! The old boys club runs an ironclad ship with no visible decks for boarding. Avast! We've built a battering ram of a business in just a few short years that has pummeled its way deep into the heart of Wall Street. Old Ironsides has warmed itself to Benzinga and once a taste the thirst cannot be quenched.

We've recently became Microsoft's premier finance partner alongside 3 other companies, all worth over a billion dollars and established for years. As of this Christmas we were installed by default on 500 million desktops and tablets via Windows 8 Finance. No download necessary. That's right mateys, we're in the source code.

And if you happen to trade or invest yourself you'll find us inside almost all of the major brokerages in the US.

So, where do you fit in this rigging, you swashbuckling scalawag? Well, our team is crazy ambitious, motivated, and experienced with shaking shit up. If you know your tech, and want on deck this is the place to do it. Your exact technical background and language of choice doesn't matter as much as your motivation and your ability to adapt quickly. We are a young team and we're especially looking for sailors who've got some salt in their whiskers who can help us scale from millions to hundreds of millions.

Why be a ninja when you can be a pirate? This ship is forging a new course, send an email to dev-us@benzinga.com to board!

Location: San Francisco or Palo Alto, INTERN or full time

BrightRoll (http://www.brightroll.com) is looking for all kinds of engineers, especially server side hackers to work on composing internal services into public, REST APIs (we take the Fielding dissertation seriously). We value functional programming, distributed systems, fault tolerance and high availability, backed by all kinds of languages and persistence schemes. We are serious about scala, erlang/elixir, ruby, node, and store stuff in SQL, nosql, and sometimes in plain old files.

Our culture is one of uncompromising transparency and GSD (the good kind of GSD, where anything that blocks us from getting stuff done is prioritized). We value risk taking, learning from failure, provide superb compensation and benefits, as well as having a laid back office culture (I personally practice Hammock Driven Development fairly regularly).

CircleCI (https://circleci.com/jobs) - SF or REMOTE fulltime (in the US)

At CircleCI we're building the next generation of developer automation: amazing Continuous Integration and Deployment. We have traction and revenue and funding and great customers. Our customers love us, because we move quickly, build great things, and provide amazing support. Everyone talks to customers a lot.

We're still a small team, so you'll have a large impact on company culture. We're highly influenced by Valve's Employee handbook, and have as flat a structure as we can. We're looking for frontend engineers (JS), designers (must be able to HTML+CSS), and backend engineers (Clojure). Being a mix of those is of course welcome! We lean towards senior experienced engineers, or junior engineers who can display great talent.

We're also looking for engineers for Developer Success and Developer Awareness positions. Since we have an incredibly technical product, and selling directly to developers, the dev-awareness positions (think marketing, but much more dev-oriented: dev evangelism, writing interesting blogs, CRO, analytics, etc - think a patio11-style engineer) require significant development experience. Dev-success positions are a good fit for engineers who like working with people and building relationships with customers.

Mutually Human - Grand Rapids, Michigan



We are a small team passionate about making people's lives better through software. We're currently looking for full-time software developers and designers.

A little bit about us:

  - We write custom software of all shapes and sizes for clients all over the US.  - Though everyone here is fluent in Ruby, we don't artificially limit ourselves.    Recently, I've worked with Objective-C, Backbone.js (inside PhoneGap),    Angular.js, QT and of course Ruby.  - We practice a sustainable pace. We recognize that we each have lives,    activities, and families outside of work. Late nights and > 40 hour weeks are    rare by design.  - We're agile, but not dogmatic about it. Our process evolves to suit our needs.  - We offer competitive salaries, health/vision/dental insurance, quarterly profit    sharing, retirement + match, weekly catered lunches, and a top-floor office    with snacks, guitars, and your choice of standing or sitting desks.  - We run a makerspace in our building (http://grmakers.com), which gives us    access to lots of cool tools and machines.
A little bit about Grand Rapids:

  - 2.5 hours from Chicago and Detroit, less than an hour to the beach.  - Lots of great beer. Founders Brewery (a mile from our office) has 3 beers in    the Beer Advocate top 15. HopCat is a World Class bar on BA.    Just look here: http://beeradvocate.com/beerfly/city/43  - If youre renting anything larger than a breadbox in the Bay Area or NYC,    you can afford a house here. I bought a nice house with a mortgage payment    30% lower than the rent of my 1 bedroom apartment in Mountain View.  - A growing technology and startup community.
A little bit about you:

  - You love making software, and you have a few years of experience doing it.  - You learn new stuff quickly. Youve used a lot of technologies, but youre not    afraid to use more. It would be nice if you use and love Ruby, but not required.  - You believe software is written for humans, not computers.  - You want to come into work every day and enjoy the people you work with.
I'm a software craftsman on this awesome team. If you're interested, get in touch with me:

Scribd (YC '06), San Francisco - H1B, FULL-TIME, and INTERN are all welcome

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

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

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

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

* Javascript (well, we use Coffeescript)

* iOS OR Android (we're a top 10 eBook app, with a tiny mobile team)

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

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

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

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

We recently launched a service that's being called the "Netflix for books" and are really excited about it. Read more here: http://wrd.cm/1dJquzz

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

London, UK Fountain Digital Labs (http://www.fountain-digital.com) All-round backend developer

We're a well-funded 1.5 year old startup working on the delivery of live video streams from our own cameras around the globe into an iPad app for children. We're currently rolling out our first two installations in Dubai and in Moscow. And we just grew to ten people.

Both the client part (iOS) and the video processing backend (Python/ffmpeg) are being actively developed in-house. We're currently looking for a Python developer, full-time in London. Our office is at TechHub (207 Old Street), in the heart of the Silicon Roundabout, but we'll be moving to the new office in the same area very soon.

The usual job description blurb is at our landing page at http://www.fountain-digital.com. I want to add that it's a great opportunity for a backend developer to get involved in a very serious wide-scale project. We're not in the business of making websites or Facebook apps, our video cloud routinely loads tens of large Amazon EC2 instances and grows automatically as you add new video streams. We're really doing interesting work here.

If you've never done Python in production, but love distributed systems, programming at scale and are a strong all-rounder feel free to apply anyway. We love working with smart and hardworking people.

If you want to ask anything about the product, technology, or anything else, drop me a line (I'm the CTO). My email is in the profile.

No recruiters please.

WORK with CEO Richard PriceWORK with CTO Ben LundWORK with 9 Senior EngineersWORK with the mission to make life better

BUILD a killer recommendation engine immersed in Machine Learning and NLPBUILD our next major platform called Peer Review from ScratchTACKLE all things related to Scalability, Storage, and SpeedVENTURE into mobile

HACK because thats what you love to doCONTRIBUTE to positive changesOPEN SCIENCE, join ACADEMIA.EDU

We are Hiring a Team to Build a Better Future

Here at Academia.edu you will have an opportunity to join an agile team of 9 Engineers who are all making a positive impact on the world by contributing to a movement called Open Science. As a member of our team you will be given a lot of autonomy to choose projects that interest you the most and the ability to make product decisions with our CTO Ben Lund and CEO Richard Price.

We are currently tackling five incredibly difficult product challenges. Some of these projects have been attempted by larger companies and have failed. In order to be successful we will need to think way outside-of-the-box and take a leap into the unknown

Peer Review

We want to build a peer review platform that allows layers of discussion on top of a single document. One of the biggest challenges we face is that contextual commenting at a large scale has yet to be achieved. In order to be successful we need to find original and novel solutions because simple approaches like putting a blog-style comment box at the end of the paper has been tried before and has not been effective.

To build Peer Review we must figure out a way to transform all the wide array of styles from any given PDF paper to a clean and consistent format that is embedded for a suitable commenting UI. We are experimenting to build a rich inline-commenting and discussion interface as well as a reputation system that surfaces quality comments.

Interface Design

We currently have 7.5 million users who upload their research papers. Academia converts these PDFs to HTLM5 to display in the browser. We face the challenges of building web UIs for scientific content such as 3D molecular visualizations and tools for exploring genetic sequences. We will also build back-end parsers, converters, and storage schemes to enable these UIs.

Recommendation Engine

We have a news feed that displays recommended papers to our users. Currently we use a simple rule-based system where papers are tagged by research interests and our users can follow those research interests. In addition, our users can follow each other. We want our users to feel as if they are attending an amazing conference where everything we show them is the most relevant and up-to-date information that is available in their field.

In order to improve our recommendation engine, we will be immersed in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. We want to identify which particular field of the paper it correlates to (math, biochemistry, anthropology, etc.) and the type of document (original research, a review article, a conference presentation, a lecture note or some other content). Using everything from a papers previous viewers on Academia.edu to its author and content to its place in the citation graph, we want to determine the relevance of a particular document to a particular user. Lastly, using large-scale data analysis we want to identify trending papers, highlight influential researchers and help the public uncover important new work more quickly and reliably.

Mobile App

Academia does not have a mobile app but we are dedicated to building one!

Working with a clean slate, we will design and build a mobile API that displays Academias core features. These features will include the user profile, upload papers, news feed, analytic data, and the ability to make comments on papers (Peer Review). In order to build a dynamic mobile API, we will write easy-to-use client libraries in a wide range of scripting languages that will encourage integration with Academias data, content and identity into their apps.

Speed, Scale, & Storage

Our engineering team will have to build highly scalable systems that effectively store and analyze our entire stream of hits. We have built an analytics dashboard so that every user can see how many people viewed their profile and how many people have read their uploaded papers. We enabled this feature by storing structured data in DynamoDB- currently 343 million rows and growing 10% per month. We want to build features that require more sophisticated aggregations on this data than DynamoDB can provide.

Furthermore we will need to figure out how to effectively store massive amounts of data while increasing the speed of our product especially to parts of the world where there is slower internet connections. This is important because areas in the world with slower connections tend to be where researchers can benefit the most from open access to research. Our platform must be useable for them too.

Future at Academia.edu

We have a fun and agile team and we are growing (our site usage grows 10% per month)! We have the resources to make our mission come true. We just raised $11 million from Khosla Ventures, Spark Capital, and True Ventures. We're based in Downtown San Francisco.

As the Senior Software Engineer at PersonalGenomes.org you will work on the Open Humans Network, a project that aims to help people aggregate and share their health and trait data to advance scientific, educational and humanitarian causes.Our model for this initiative is the work weve done on the Harvard Personal Genome Project (PGP), which has over 3,000 volunteers publicly sharing extensive biological and trait data, including hundreds of whole genomes, exomes, and genotyping data sets, over 1,000 health records, microbiome datasets from various bodily habitats, device data, brain imaging, etc. This combination of a highly informed and engaged community of volunteers and their contributions of extremely rich biological and health data, along with a network of collaboration-minded researchers, is an incredibly powerful scientific and educational resource that is unrivaled elsewhere. We will build on this momentum with this exciting new initiative that will transform participatory research and advance human health.Our current hiring position is focusing on someone with back-end web development skills, as we have plans to work with a design firm for initial front-end work.

-- Is interested in building and managing a full-stack website. As the Senior Software Engineer, your expertise will be an important factor in decisions about what kind of technology is used and how its deployed.

-- Has used multiple programming languages to build production systems (e.g. Python, JavaScript, Ruby).

-- Is experienced with back-end web development (e.g. Django or Rails).

-- Is comfortable managing Unix servers, cloud-based services and has opinions about how to store and disseminate large datasets (currently around 50TB total, although we would start with managing <10GB).

-- Works well in a small team of developers and scientists.

-- Loves science, participatory research, and free/open source ideals.

-- Believes in our mission!

About us: PersonalGenomes.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to generate, aggregate and interpret human biological and trait data on an unprecedented scale. PersonalGenome.org's mission is to make a wide spectrum of data about humans accessible to increase biological literacy and improve human health. Its efforts are informed by values encouraging greater transparency and collaboration between researchers and participants. The organization supports the Personal Genome Project (PGP) global network. The first PGP research study was founded at Harvard Medical School in 2005, and PGP sites now exist at leading institutions in four countries. We also produce the annual Genomes, Environments and Traits (GET) Conference. More information is available at http://www.personalgenomes.org

About Open Humans: We have years of practical experience, thousands of participants, and diverse data sets accrued. What we need now is an experienced developer to help us build a site for participants and researchers to manage and publicly share this data. Think of this as a nonprofit startup project!

San Francisco, CA - Zenbox. Software Engineer. [LOCAL | RELOCATE OK]

We're a YC company with a friendly-beta sales tool (close to going public-beta) that helps small and large companies catch opportunities from slipping through the cracks.

If you've ever run a startup, you know how difficult it can be to stay on top of sales. And you also know how many companies fail because of it. We want to make them succeed.

We also spend time improving our tooling, and tools for other developers.

  * We run the SF ClojureScript meetup  * Incredibly modern stack: written entirely in Clojure/ClojureScript/Om/React  * Released the first reference Om app (https://github.com/sgrove/omchaya)  * Given presentations on how we see app development trending http://sgrove.github.io/omchaya/docs/presentation.html (hint: It's about to get much, much better, and referentially-transparent UI's and serializable state play a big part)  * We've vastly improved the source-map capabilities of the ClojureScript compiler  * Reified keywords to the runtime to make ClojureScript a better citizen on the web
We do all of this for two reasons: 1.) We want to build apps that customers love in the best way possible, and that often means taking the time to explore proper approaches. With the right team and stack, we run circles around others, and 2.) because we want to give back to the communities that have enabled us.We're looking for an engineer who loves the craft, who cares about building product, and is excited about helping customers.

Interested in working with Reactjs, Om, and functional programming in the client? We're building a team that's able to reduce complexity others balk at into simple, easy to reason about system, so we can continue to move quickly and delight both customers and ourselves.This is fullstack work.

Languages: Clojure, Clojurescript, Javascript. sean @ zenboxapp https://www.zenboxapp.comAlso, come meet us at the SF ClojureScript meetup! http://www.meetup.com/SF-Clojurescript-Meetup/

P.S. Didn't quite make it in this month, but we should have some very cool ideas exploring the edges of composable UI's soon to share with the HN community.

Notting Hill, London, England, U.K.

Our web application is at the heart of our busy and successful e-commerce business; every day it serves millions of product images and handles hundreds of thousands of user visits, but we can and do update the live site with new code multiple times per day without missing a beat. Our systems are written on the LAMP stack and deployed on Amazon Web Services using Puppet and Capistrano; we are migrating to Symfony 2 as our MVC framework. Developers choose the tools that work best for them - for instance, at the moment we have a mix of Linux and Mac workstations in the team. We are adopting and adapting agile development techniques such as evolutionary design, pair programming, and continuous deployment. We hold regular retrospectives to improve our working environment. Our developers are generalizing specialists; a typical day may include refining an algorithm, writing a tricky integration test, tuning an SQL query, and discussing feature nuances with a product manager. Our team is growing fast and we'd like to hear (at careers@secretsales.com) from any of you who'd like to join us; we're hiring for all technical roles, especially developers of all levels of experience.

Established in London in July 2007, Secretsales.com is the UK's leading private shopping club, offering limited-time online sales with current name-brand goods at deep discounts. Brands include fashion, beauty, homeware, and lifestyle categories, many of them familiar from the high street. The company has about eighty employees and a substantial annual turnover; it was recently selected to join the UK's Future Fifty programme for the country's most rapidly growing startups.

Wanted: Programming Unicorn.

We aren't asking for much here at SwiftStack. All we need is someone that's

   * An experienced, opinionated crafter of scalable distributed systems   * Possessed of a deep and abiding knowledge of Linux   * A brilliant Python developer, steeped in the Web   * Excited about deployment and knowledgeable about packaging and      the infrastructure that goes into getting nontrivial software systems      from "here" to "there"   * Oh yeah, and it would be peachy if that person was really good at      front end development so they could give our users a smooth,      comprehensible experience that masks the inherent complexity      under the hood.
(We'll supply the horn.)

OK, maybe that is a big ask. Its true, at a small (but growing) company, we do wear many hats, so the more you fit the above description, the better. But what we're really looking for is a smart, talented, intellectually curious engineer with a strong background in at least one of the above skills and aspirations to grow in one or more of the others.

We've got a multi-talented engineering team and a host of compelling software-related challenges in many different arenas, and by the time you're done here, you'll have broad and deep enough experience that you'll have earned your unicorn horn, and no can take that away from you. Because you'd stab them. With your unicorn horn.

Who the heck are we?

At SwiftStack we're building software to help people create petabyte scale object storage infrastructure in their own data center instantaneously. At our core, we use Swift, OpenStack's object storage technology, but we're building an orchestration layer that does the easy things for you, makes the hard things easy, and makes the impossible possible.

Why join SwiftStack?

   * You'll be part of a small team of highly skilled people who are also      very nice folks and would totally help you out in a pinch.   * You'll be joining a company at a perfect size -- just big enough to      have momentum, but small enough that the decisions you make will have      a real impact on its course.   * You'll get valuable experience building a product meant to manage massive      amounts of data. At scale, there are no easy problems.   * Swift is Open Source technology, and part of one of the most important Open      Source initiatives in recent history: OpenStack. You'd be writing code that      people all over the world would use, including the likes of Wikipedia and CERN. 
If you've ever wanted to write code that has an impact, and we know you have, this is a good place to do it. Drop us a line at jobs@swiftstack.com, take a look at http://swiftstack.com/jobs/, and/or check out our puzzles at https://swiftstack.com/jobs/puzzles/. Thanks!

Mobile Engineer

We're looking for an extremely good mobile engineer to help us change the way people approach mobile analytics.This is a perfect position for someone who loves building clean APIs for others to use. You enjoy not only building mobile apps, but writing the libraries that power those apps. You're fluent in everything to do with iOS as a platform, and if you have Android chops that's a huge bonus, but definitely not a requirement.

You'd be working on current and new features of the mobile SDKs themselves, as well as helping to write code for where they touch our Node.js backend, where we process tens of millions of events per day. And you'd be in charge of our entire mobile offering, which is used in product by lots of big companies like Live Nation, Nest Labs and The Knot.

You'd be joining a team of very talented engineers that are in love with open-source. Both of those SDKs are open-source, as is tons of our codebase[1]. So if you enjoy working with smart people and getting to make a name for yourself releasing the things you work on to other developers, you've found the right place.

Not only that, but you'd be working on a few of our still-secret mobile projects that we're pretty confident are going to change the way people integrate third party code into every mobile app they write afterwards.

[0]: https://segment.io

[1]: https://github.com/segmentio


To apply, email us at jobs@segment.io with:

    1. a description of an app you've worked on (code is a bonus)    2. a description of a mobile library you've built (code is a bonus)    3. a link to your GitHub if you have one    4. the most interesting mobile SDK you've worked with and why

DOWNTOWN San Francisco

FULL TIME Engineers

WORK with CEO Richard Price

WORK with CTO Ben Lund

WORK with 9 Senior Engineers

WORK with the mission to make life better

BUILD a killer recommendation engine immersed in Machine Learning and NLP

BUILD our next major platform called Peer Review from Scratch

TACKLE all things related to Scalability, Storage, and SpeedVENTURE into mobile

HACK because thats what you love to do

CONTRIBUTE to positive changes


We are Hiring a Team to Build a Better Future

Here at Academia.edu you will have an opportunity to join an agile team of 9 Engineers who are all making a positive impact on the world by contributing to a movement called Open Science. As a member of our team you will be given a lot of autonomy to choose projects that interest you the most and the ability to make product decisions with our CTO Ben Lund and CEO Richard Price.

We are currently tackling five incredibly difficult product challenges. Some of these projects have been attempted by larger companies and have failed. In order to be successful we will need to think way outside-of-the-box and take a leap into the unknown

Peer Review

We want to build a peer review platform that allows layers of discussion on top of a single document. One of the biggest challenges we face is that contextual commenting at a large scale has yet to be achieved. In order to be successful we need to find original and novel solutions because simple approaches like putting a blog-style comment box at the end of the paper has been tried before and has not been effective.

To build Peer Review we must figure out a way to transform all the wide array of styles from any given PDF paper to a clean and consistent format that is embedded for a suitable commenting UI. We are experimenting to build a rich inline-commenting and discussion interface as well as a reputation system that surfaces quality comments.

Interface Design

We currently have 7.5 million users who upload their research papers. Academia converts these PDFs to HTLM5 to display in the browser. We face the challenges of building web UIs for scientific content such as 3D molecular visualizations and tools for exploring genetic sequences. We will also build back-end parsers, converters, and storage schemes to enable these UIs.

Recommendation Engine

We have a news feed that displays recommended papers to our users. Currently we use a simple rule-based system where papers are tagged by research interests and our users can follow those research interests. In addition, our users can follow each other. We want our users to feel as if they are attending an amazing conference where everything we show them is the most relevant and up-to-date information that is available in their field.

In order to improve our recommendation engine, we will be immersed in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. We want to identify which particular field of the paper it correlates to (math, biochemistry, anthropology, etc.) and the type of document (original research, a review article, a conference presentation, a lecture note or some other content). Using everything from a papers previous viewers on Academia.edu to its author and content to its place in the citation graph, we want to determine the relevance of a particular document to a particular user. Lastly, using large-scale data analysis we want to identify trending papers, highlight influential researchers and help the public uncover important new work more quickly and reliably.

Mobile App

Academia does not have a mobile app but we are dedicated to building one!

Working with a clean slate, we will design and build a mobile API that displays Academias core features. These features will include the user profile, upload papers, news feed, analytic data, and the ability to make comments on papers (Peer Review). In order to build a dynamic mobile API, we will write easy-to-use client libraries in a wide range of scripting languages that will encourage integration with Academias data, content and identity into their apps.

Speed, Scale, & Storage

Our engineering team will have to build highly scalable systems that effectively store and analyze our entire stream of hits. We have built an analytics dashboard so that every user can see how many people viewed their profile and how many people have read their uploaded papers. We enabled this feature by storing structured data in DynamoDB- currently 343 million rows and growing 10% per month. We want to build features that require more sophisticated aggregations on this data than DynamoDB can provide.

Furthermore we will need to figure out how to effectively store massive amounts of data while increasing the speed of our product especially to parts of the world where there is slower internet connections. This is important because areas in the world with slower connections tend to be where researchers can benefit the most from open access to research. Our platform must be useable for them too.

Future at Academia.edu

We have a fun and agile team and we are growing (our site usage grows 10% per month)! We have the resources to make our mission come true. We just raised $11 million from Khosla Ventures, Spark Capital, and True Ventures. We're based in Downtown San Francisco.

Chat with Ashley

If you think you would be interested in solving some of these technical problems then please do not hesitate to contact ashley[at]academia.edu.

Backend / Full stack - we use Scala, Play!, and Akka to build a highly-available, reactive backend to serve our clients. Ideal candidate has experience on the JVM, functional programming, and continuous deployment. More here: http://www.42go.com/join_us.html#backend

We blog at http://eng.42go.com, so check out some of the stuff we're working on. We're okay to sponsor H1Bs, but prefer Bay Area candidates already so we can move faster. To apply, email towel@42go.com with your resume/github/LinkedIn.

San Francisco - Heyday - http://hey.co

We are building a lifelog for people to remember and share the story of their lives, automatically, beautifully, and privately. Two months ago, we launched here on Hacker News [ https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=6858373 ]. Here's what some of you guys said:

- "Wow. I rarely download this stuff. But the fact that it claims to be automatic piqued my interest. After downloading it I can say that my first impression is shocked. Shocked that I really liked it."

- "This is very well done. This could crush Facebook. Not in the short term but if you create a timeline that is more personally valuable to people they will be far more likely to use it and share it with friends and family. Your timeline is already far more interesting then my "Wall."

- "Why is it free? I would've paid for this."

- "I have been looking for this. I've been so desperate for this I've been contemplating creating it myself."

We're looking for:

* Mobile engineers (iOS - hard problems include making our sync engine fast/reliable, fast/intuitive search for memories, surfacing important memories in the background, UI performance, and doing it all without using a lot of battery)

* Systems engineers (Python, AWS, Puppet/Chef - hard problems include delivering accurate geocoding for memories, reliable syncing, and building systems to monitor and scale all of it automatically)

* Data scientists (R/Matlab/SPSS, Python, SQL, statistics, machine learning - hard problems include using ML to improve accuracy of geocoding, building growth and retention models, all while guaranteeing user anonymity and privacy).

We will fly you out for interviews and relocate you to San Francisco if you aren't here already. A lot of our team work remotely from time to time, but we haven't found full time remote employees to work out well for us since we collaborate so closely together in real time.

Please email us directly at siqi at hey dot co (8 hour SLA for a response).

Close - We're a tiny startup hiring in San Francisco.

We're analyzing professional networks to help folks make the most of who they know. If you've ever tried to answer the question "Who do I know that's..." (looking for engineers, investing in my kind of company, interested in partnerships, able to get me featured on Google Play, etc) -- that's what we're about.

It's a huge, nutty data problem -- our professional networks aren't perfectly manicured, exemplary LinkedIn accounts, but disparate and scattered across multiple platforms. Plus there's the task of really trying to understand who everyone is, and figuring out a product perspective that avoids spam and creepiness while genuinely building relationships and value for both sides.

We recently closed a seed round and we're looking for a Python data engineer and a Rails developer. If you're interested in a rolling up your sleeves at a really early-stage startup (with funding!), we'd love to hear from you.

On the data side, ideally you have some experience with using Python for data analysis, scaling data tools, API integrations, machine learning/natural language processing, and ontologies. For Rails, we're looking for an experienced engineer who can own our Rails stack and lead integrations with our data backend.

If you'd like to learn more, please get in touch. I'm jennie at close.co, and I'm the data engineer you'd be working directly with in either role. :)

NGP VAN - Washington, DC or Boston, MA - Senior and Mid-Level Developers, Interns

NGP VAN (https://coderwall.com/team/ngp-van) is the worlds leading political technology firm, providing campaign and organizing technology to Democrats, progressives, and non-partisan organizations. We offer an integrated platform that combines the best fundraising, compliance, organizing, and new media products available.

We are a rapidly growing company that built the voter contact and volunteer management tools used by Obama for America. Nearly every State Democratic Party in the country distributes our VoteBuilder tools to Democrats up and down the ticket, and we provide industry-leading organizing tools for labor unions, environmental groups, pro-choice advocates, civil rights activists, and international political parties across the world. Our fundraising and compliance software is used by the vast majority of Democratic candidates from the Presidential level on down, and our fast-growing new media platform has recently become the most-used platform by Democratic campaigns as well.

We have a few positions open in DC or Boston for developers - our stack is mostly ASP.NET MVC / EF, but we have several node apps and are also using angular pretty heavily in new stuff. (The open positions would definitely involve both C# and node.) We're also open to summer interns in both locations.

The positions offers competitive compensation and a strong benefits package. NGP VAN prides itself on being a progressive and open-minded workplace; we have a fun and relaxed company culture, including blowing off steam on a softball field, drinking in the office on Fridays, enjoying periodic company retreats to warm places with beaches, and casual Friday every day.

Gurock (http://www.gurock.com/) - Berlin, Germany

Hiring: Technical Support Engineer (English, full time) + others

We are a small & successful bootstrapped software company from Germany and build popular web-based applications for software teams. We have been in business since 2004 and many thousands of teams, both small and large, use our products.

We are hiring for different positions, but our main focus right now is on hiring a technical support engineer to help us support our TestRail customers. This is not a typical support role though, as our products and customers are very technical (they are software dev/testing teams), so it's an interesting and challenging position.

As most of our customers are from the US, Canada or other non-German speaking countries, excellent English writing and communication skills are critical for this role (German not required). You can learn more about the Support Engineer role here:


We have recently opened a nice office in Berlin (Prenzlauer Berg, near Mitte) and offer great benefits. We use a modern web development stack with PHP, an advanced custom MVC framework (like Rails), Vagrant etc. We provide a very productive and flexible working environment.

If you are in Berlin (or plan to move to Berlin soon) and one of our open positions sounds like a good fit, let me know.

Expensify-San Francisco, CA-Fulltime, Programmer Extraordinaire

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pathgather - New York, NY

We're a Techstars NYC startup with a simple mission: to make the world's knowledge universally transparent and accessible. We're starting this mission by targeting the enterprise, disrupting the fairly outdated enterprise education and training space, an industry that has over 60% of its customers dissatisfied with current products!

We've seen significant progress within our first year of business. We signed a Fortune 200, 30,000+ employee company to a six figure contract within our first months and successfully launched to that company a little over a month ago. They now have over 20% of their workforce using Pathgather.

Our product is built on top of a modern stack using best practices: an Angular client that communicates with a Rails 4 API, powered by Postgres, Redis, and Elasticsearch. We also have a strong focus on product and design (take a look at our product, and we think you'll agree). Traditionally, enterprise software has lacked in these areas, but we aim to disrupt that tradition.

If you're at all interested or curious in exploring an opportunity with us, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at jamie@pathgather.com. We guarantee an amazing opportunity awaits: we'll offer significant salary and equity, the chance to work on real problems experienced by a wide audience, opportunities for open source work and contributions, and influence in our product, culture, and vision from day one!

- "Designgineer" ~ someone very comfortable with HTML and CSS. Ideally you have experience with UX & design theory and an interest in data & analytics visualizations.

- Data engineer ~ someone who can "hadoopify" our data. We're sitting on an ever growing trove of CRE data. We're looking for someone to help take lead on building out the team, the tools, and the insights as we grow.

- "Full Stack" engineer ~ the engineering team so far is made up of experienced, focused individuals comfortable on all parts of the system. We'd love to add another Sr. level full stack type who can hit the ground running & add to our overall product-shipping speed while helping us grow our culture.

We use node.js, python, postgres, elastic search, and nsq currently but are happy to have more tools in our toolbox if they solve the problem. We're a close knit, easy to get along with team and all really excited about Reonomy!

I'm actually located remote and have worked this way for about 9 months, but I'm so stoked about how things are going I'm moving with my family from ATX to NYC next month to be closer to the action.

If you're interested in talking more please shoot me an email at brian@reonomy.com with some details about you & what position you'd like to talk about. Thanks!

Wingspan Technology - Philadelphia Suburbs (Blue Bell), Full Time

We have several open engineering positions, each with a different focus: Javascript client (React + Scala + Postgres), Database Administrator (Postgres/Solr), and a dev ops engineer. Email gsieling@wingspan.com if interested in any of these.


We have a diverse mix already, including a few startup veterans, conferences and meetup presenters, and even some game developers. We used AJAX before it was called AJAX. The engineering managers arent really managers theyre the ones who architected the products and lead their maintenance. Engineers in charge means no red tape or other silly productivity barriers like at larger companies.

While all of our engineers contribute across the stack, many draw assignments with a particular focus. As a Software Engineer (Client Focused), you would be a principal contributor in developing our next-generation eTMF product. The eTMF client is a classic web 2.0 single page application utilizing the current best of breed JavaScript libraries.

Wingspan values fundamentals and ability to learn over current knowledge, but candidates with knowledge and experience relevant to our current technology stack have an obvious advantage over those without.

hopTo Inc., Campbell, California (http://hopto.com/careers)

I'm a team lead at hopTo, and we're currently hiring mobile developers and people with a Windows background. The latter is my team, and if you're someone who's bored with his/her current enterprise-level job coding for the Microsoft stack and want something more challenging, I'd love to talk with you.

Our product involves some low-level hackery in C++/C# on the Windows side, stuff like coding messages ourselves and feeding them to window handles, custom drivers, and other bits. We need people who have a solid background with Windows architecture (MFC, Windows Forms, etc) and the drive to learn the rest. If you're looking to move up from a standard .Net job, this is a way to do it.

In return, we offer solid salaries and stock shares (we're a public company!), a flat hierarchy with a great team, four weeks off, and very competitive games of FIFA on our XBox. Additionally, we hate overtime. I've never once been asked to stay late and crunch, though my work is fun enough that I'll sometimes hack on the weekends anyway.

If you're interested, please email a resume to andrew at hopto.com, along with a link to something you've built (either a web site, or a Github repo, or whatever).

The job positions don't state it, but I was hired into a position as a remote/WFH worker, so I would imagine that the possibility is open to other people as well. The company also has offices in a variety of locations if being remote is not for you: New York NY, San Francisco CA, Denver CO, Berlin, Paris, London, etc..

REMOTE. Contract to hire and FTE web developer positions.

I work for a small elite consultancy called Twin Technologies. We're about 25 FTEs and 40 contractors. I settled here after working in multiple startups, contracting for a larger consultancy, and even co-running my own consultancy and incubator. I came back to Twin after a year hiatus because this is really as good as it gets. The leadership is fantastic, and work-life balance is deeply ingrained in the culture. On top of that, I can honestly say that I enjoy working with my entire team and look forward to our three yearly get-togethers.

We're very selective with who we hire, but if you're reading this then it's a good start that you're on Hacker News. For the record I'm not a recruiter or HR for Twin - I'm a tech lead. We've got some big projects in the pipeline and need to find the right people to join us ASAP. Drop me a line if you're interested. Also drop me a line is you have any general questions about tech consulting. Write to andy.tiffany@twintechs.com and please include "HN" in the subject.

A future employee's first experience at your company is his job application. When someone has taken the time to apply to your company, here are some things that would be nice if done:

* When you post that you are hiring, either here or elsewhere, please make sure to reply as fast as possible. Delaying action on job applications doesn't help both you and the candidate.

* Even if you are not interested in the candidate, sending a reply, however simple, helps in more ways than you can imagine.

System 76 - Denver, CO

Full Time Front End Web Developer

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

You see the world in HTML DOM elements. You love diving into the latest and greatest CSS frameworks. When youve written a particularly elegant piece of Javascript, it feels like all is right in the world. You shudder at the thought of websites before responsive design. If someone shows you an API, you instantly see a powerful user interface taking shape. You understand the stack of the web; getting your hands dirty with LAMP isnt a show stopper to launching a product. You gave up Dreamweaver in 1997 because nothing ever looked as good as your bare code.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Required Skills & Experience

Smart, motivated, and disciplined person who takes pride in their work.

HTML5 / CSS3 expert; you know what to use and when for proper document markup.

Javascript and jQuery expert; you write beautiful, concise, and manageable front end code.

Know the difference between good and bad cross-browser compatibility (youre a feature tester, not a version sniffer).

Love technical challenges and advanced UI features. Seeing a unique, yet functional page design with interesting challenges excites you.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The Perfect Candidate:

Regular and comfortable user of version control ( Git a big plus ).

Experience with SASS and CSS frameworks ( specifically Foundation ).

Experience working with and building REST APIs.

Written PHP and/or Node.js applications; not afraid to get down & dirty with back end code.

Feels completely at home within a Gruntfile.

Familiar with Javascript and PHP MVC frameworks.

Love Linux and Ubuntu.

Interpreter Intelligence - http://www.interpreterintelligence.com - San Francisco, CA

Were a group a guys primarily based in San Francisco (although remote is a possibility) who believe in the ability of a small group of driven people to improve the everyday problems of those outside the tech sector. Our focus is on the interpretation vertical: we provide a SaaS product for scheduling, hr, and financials for that sector. Theres TONS of interesting problems, and our customers love us!

Were looking for our first full time engineering hire. As mentioned: if youre in SF, great, but also let us know if youre interested in a remote job.

* Were a tiny team, so youll need to be at least comfortable with the full stack. It also means you'll have a huge amount of influence on how things are done.

* Front-end expertise is critical: we have more code in our backbone.js layer than anywhere else, and so you should not only be an expert in javascript, but also know how to manage complex dependencies.

* Knowledge of a modern MVC framework. We use grails, but those skills are quite transferable. Java and Hibernate knowledge is a bonus.

* AWS and Elasticsearch knowledge would be awesome.

We have tons of interesting problems ahead of us, from implementing beautiful realtime dashboards to crunchy machine learning/discrete optimization tasks.

Drop me a note at david@interpreterintelligence.com if youre interested or have any questions.
