    Position: Lots of fun software stuff – from programming languages to data engineering to computer vision to basically anything that’s not a webapp

    Location: Woburn, MA (a little north of Boston)

    Description: We solve hard problems, usually (but not always) for the government. We’re not some stodgy defense contractor but rather teams of engineers, mathematicians and software engineers that get things done and actually deliver product. Some examples of the types of projects we work on are counter-botnet botnets and programming language research to improve security.

      Position(s): Principal researchers, research engineers and technical project leads

      Location: Arlington, VA. Dayton, OH, Portland, OR

      Description: We’re looking for folks that enjoy working on challenging problems in computer science. We collaborate with organizations like NASA, DARPA, and Amazon Web Services to explore what is possible and turn impactful ideas (often stemming from academic research) into usable technology. Galois is employee-owned, we have a one-level flat organizational structure, and we make important decisions as a group. Engineers choose what they work on out of a large pool of projects. We love to learn and share what we know, and that’s a big part of how we approach R&D, so we have no hard requirements for previous experience with similar work. You’d be joining a team of 100.

      Some of the things we’ve worked on in the past: Formal methods, static analysis, binary analysis, cryptographic algorithms, domain specific languages, programming languages theory, abstract interpretation, type theory, formal verification and software correctness, reinforcement learning, autonomous systems assurance, communication security, cyber-deception for network defense, DDoS defense, provable hardware security, statistical anomaly detection for detecting advanced persistent threats.

      We think working here is awesome, and you can find a more polished version of what that means at https://lifeatgalois.com.

Our journey towards becoming the best place for camping has just started less than a year ago. Currently we’re listing campsites and camping destinations as well as allowing reservations, but we’re moving towards integrating many more campsites, expanding to other countries and enabling bookability. Camping is not boring technology-wise! There’s lots of fine-grained data to process and display. Have a look at our stackshare account. We are an English speaking team with over 10 nationalities. Besides our generous vacation allowance as an employee you have (free) access to our 2 camping vehicles!

            Company: FreeAgent

            Company site: https://freeagent.com/


            • Product engineers, junior/mid/senior/principal - you’ll be working predominantly with Ruby on Rails but you don’t need to have direct experience of it - we’ll get you up to speed!

            • Platform engineers, mid/senior/principal - opportunities to work on our cloud migration (we’ve moving to AWS), CI/CD, developer tooling, data science, machine learning

            • Test Engineering - helping to build an even better testing culture into the product from creating an idea to monitoring once it is delivered

            • Engineering managers, team leads, product managers, product designers

            Location: Edinburgh, Scotland or remote in the UK for senior positions

            Description: At FreeAgent we help freelancers and small businesses be more successful by putting them in control of their company finances.

            We have built an award-winning banking and accounting app that offers full end-to-end compliance, from time tracking to tax return filing. We’re based in beautiful Edinburgh and we’re growing from strength to strength with over 90,000 paying customers and strong YoY growth. Our NPS is amazing (70!) - customers love what we do and our team get to make a real impact.

            That’s actually my favourite part of the job: seeing the positive impact that we’re having on small businesses with every release, allowing those people to get on with the thing they got into business for (hairdressing, dress making, web consultancy), rather than spending time worrying about their finances.

            We’re a growing team of over 200 people. 50% of our engineering team are distributed across the UK, the rest being based at our Edinburgh HQ.

              Company: Fullstack.io

              Company site: https://www.fullstack.io/write-a-book

              Position(s): Book author

              Location: Remote

              Description: We are looking for authors who want to write programming books. Specifically, authors who want to write about Golang, Rust, WASM, Elixir, and Python.

              API docs often focus on too-thin of an area of responsibility and blog posts are scattered and of mixed quality. Our books are written for programmers trying to learn a new framework/language and we try to teach the practical wisdom that you would otherwise only learn on the job.

              We split royalties 50/50 and help a ton with marketing. Our tooling is sane (markdown, git) and several of our authors have earned $50k+ in a year.

              In fact, we just finished a book on D3 with a fellow Lobster.

              There are so many insights we have as experienced engineers that you can’t learn from Medium posts. If you’re interested in sharing your hard-earned, deep knowledge through a book, reach out by using the form on this page

We’ve been around since 2016 and have been having massive growth since the shutdown of Airbnb for Events. We originally started as a JS shop (Mongo, Node, Leaflet) but now are moving more of the backend to Go and moving away from Mongo to Postgres as we grow.

                      Location: Boston, MA (on-site or remote)


                      We’re the fastest growing unicorn you’ve never heard of [0] and were recently named CNBC’s Most Disruptive Business beating out Airbnb, Stripe, Flexport, and more [3].

                      Indigo is revolutionizing agtech by offering better crops to farmers through technology. Agtech is one of the most under-hyped technology trends [1] and we’re serving a multi-trillion dollar marketplace services industry [2].

                      One fast-growing group inside Indigo is working on the Uber of Agriculture. They’re developing a transportation network to connect farmers with preferred carriers (trucks) to help them ship millions of bushels of grain across the United States. It’s like a real world Traveling Salesman Problem with even more requirements.

                      Indigo is hiring engineers at all levels; back-end, front-end, mobile… you name it, we need the help (see all of them here: https://www.indigoag.com/join-us ).

                      Our tech stack includes AWS, Docker, Kubernetes (DevOps), Postgres (DB), Node (TypeScript) & GraphQL (back-end), React & Apollo (front-end), and Python (data science / comp bio).

                      We also offer incredible perks. Free lunch (a rarity in Boston), massive commuter benefits (both MBTA and bicycling), fitness reimbursement, ample vacation; we really focus on and believe in both health and sustainability.

                      I’d be happy to tell you more, so feel free to PM me and I’ll personally refer you to the company.

We’re a small company so this is a very broad role – you don’t have to be an expert at (or even be familiar with) all of the things we’ll be doing, but the ideal candidate would be an expert in at least one of the areas we’ll be working in.

                                  Experience with Linux system administration (we’re on Ubuntu 14.04…)

                                  Oh my

                                  1. 2

                                    It’s fine, technology doesn’t change much in 5 years. Definitely not in the security arena.

                                    1. 1

                                      Definitely not in the security arena.

                                      That couldn’t be more false given both the amount of effort/tooling applied to finding vulnerabilities in Linux kernels and the recent focus on hardware flaws popularized by Meltdown/Spectre. Even projects in high-assurance security targeting commodity platforms need updates due to flaws below or around their developers’ scope.

                                    Together with the rest of our team, you’ll work on our email services FastMail, Pobox, and Topicbox. When the vast majority of people get email for free, the reason people choose a paid service is because they value both privacy and a great user experience.

                                    You’ll be working on our best-in-breed mail clients, providing super-fast, powerful access to webmail, calendars, contacts and more. You’ll work with our collaborative team of front- and back-end developers, designers and researchers. Improving our customers’ interactive experience, keeping it secure and a delight to use is what we do, every day.

                                    Our interfaces are built upon our own Overture framework and the new email standard JMAP. It gives us full control from top to bottom to build the right solutions to difficult problems. If you’ve worked with other MVC application frameworks, like Apple’s Cocoa, you should find Overture easy to pick up.

                                    You’ll have the opportunity to work at many levels:

                                    • building features from scratch with our design and product teams
                                    • optimizing and improving existing code
                                    • tracking down and fixing elusive bugs reported by customers

                                    Contact: Email us at jobs@fastmail.com to introduce yourself and tell us why you would be a good fit for the job! This job requires clear communication, so that message is part of your application, but please also include a PDF of your resume.

                                      I’ve been interested in looking at gmail alternatives and I’ve heard good things about Fastmail. Good to know there’s an engineer on here, makes me trust it a bit more.

                                              Company site: https://www.neighbourlytics.com/

                                              Position(s): Senior Software Engineer, CTO

                                              Location: Melbourne, Australia

                                              Description: Neighbourlytics is building a platform that harnesses a wide range of data to enable citymakers to better understand, compare, and analyse neighbourhoods worldwide, with the overall goal of supporting the development of more life-filled neighbourhoods and cities.

                                              The Head of Analytics has been building a product to help with this, but needs the support of a senior software engineer to take responsbility for all the aspects of engineering; from the tools and technology, to deployment, monitoring, data management and pipelines, and overall technical strategy and direction.

                                              They’re interested such cool things as Elm and Haskell. Most of the code is in Python presently, but they’re very open to doing things differently. There’s lots of cool engineering problems to solve here, and lots of interesting work around spatial analysis, urban planning, and the intersection thereof.

                                              You can find more details (and apply) here.
