Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: USA

Category: Software Dev


Motiion is a technology and data company for the food industry. We believe in transparency, diversity, merit and fostering a culture of accountability, personal impact and career growth.
 
As a member of the first solutions engineering team at Motiion you will have a unique opportunity to work with external clients and the development team at Motiion.  Your primary goal will be to understand the pain points of our clients and explore opportunities for how to solve them with Motiion technology.  In this role you will truly be working cross-functionally - engaging with product, engineering, business development and marketing.
 
We have no particular requirements to seniority for this role, but you have worked as a technical solutions engineer or been a technical project manager in your past.  You have helped and assisted both external clients and internal clients and love to solve technical and non-technical challenges. You strive to find long-term solutions when you can, but can compromise when you have to.  You love getting to know new customers and learning the intricacies of their businesses. 
 

Some signs of a great candidate:

    • Organized. Your calendar is always up to date and you’re rarely late to anything. No task you take on gets lost.
    • Deep technical understanding. This is not a programming position, but you might have been a developer at some point before you decided to be more customer focused. 
    • Patient.  Although you’re organized, you understand that our customers might not be. You know how to get people to get things done.
    • Performance recognized by your peers. Past colleagues would love to work with you again.
    • Starter and finisher. You often identify a problem, design a solution and bring it to a state of completion - alone or with collaborators. 
    • Work hard and smart. Your work ethic is unquestioned, and you know how to get things done so you can balance your work and personal life in a sustainable way.
    • Disciplined and reliable. We are a remote company and you enjoy the benefits of working remotely while consistently delivering what you have committed to. When you hit a snag, you communicate and reset expectations early.
    • Collaborative. You know that your team members’ perspectives will make your solutions better. Similarly, you use your strengths to make the team perform.
    • Appreciation of honest feedback. You know that the best way to learn and grow is through constructive feedback delivered kindly, but without unnecessary ambiguity. You feedback given to as an opportunity to get better and strive to do the same for others.
    • Analytical and practical mind. You strive for simple, precise solutions to complex problems. Complex solutions are only acceptable when absolutely needed.
Why we are different
Our main goals with Motiion are easy to explain: We want to build a company that we would like to enjoy spending the rest of our careers in, that has a positive impact on the world and that will outlast us. Achieving these goals will be challenging, but we know we can do it. Here’s why:
 
A strong founder team
We, the founders, have a proven track record of building successful companies from scratch. We will take all of the amazing and painful experiences of the past and apply them to create a company we all will be very proud of.
 
Self-funded
The founders have invested $10 million to allow us to focus on building technology and product the right way. Our eyes are on the goals of building a global technology platform. We are laser focused on customer needs, but will make product priorities based on our long-term goals, not short-term revenue.
 
Remote-first
We believe technology that enables remote work to be better than a corporate office setting is already here and the world of business is just about to catch up. Remote work certainly comes with drawbacks, but the strongly believe the advantages vastly outnumber the disadvantages. Speaking to dozens of experienced remote employees has shown us that the number one obstacle to building a successful remote workplace is doing it half-way by having some people be co-located and some remote. We want the same mode of collaboration for everyone and our team will be working remotely most of the time.
 
This does not mean that you have to work from home all the time, or at all. Motiion will pay for co-working space if that’s what you prefer. We will also encourage team members that live in the same area to meet up and work together when it makes sense. We will also make sure we all meet regularly for real in-person interaction!
 
Personal impact of collaborating individuals
We have seen first-hand how corporate culture can devolve into empire building and reporting lines. Motiion will have great managers, but we recognize and value the skills of individual contributors. You can grow your career at Motiion doing the work you love and excel at. Your merit matters, not your title.
 
Benefits
We have top notch benefits, matching most of the large US tech companies, including 401k matching, excellent health insurance and a generous vacation policy.

  • Overleaf (Core hours 2pm-5pm UK time)
    2 weeks ago

    Core hours 2pm-5pm UK time. Applicants in North America and the EU (including UK) are preferred.


    What We Do

    Overleaf is a startup and social enterprise that builds modern collaborative authoring tools for scientists — like Google Docs for Science. We have over four million registered users from around the world. Our primary product is an online, real-time collaborative editor for papers, theses, technical reports and other documents written in the LaTeX markup language.

    Who We Are

    Overleaf was founded by two mathematicians who were inspired by their own experiences in academia to create a better solution for scientific collaboration and communication. Now we are a team of about forty with fifteen developers, based mainly in and around the UK and in the US. We were recognised as one of the UK's top 100 fastest growing businesses in 2018.

    About a third of our development team joined us through our acquisition of ShareLaTeX, another major online LaTeX editor, in 2017, and we've now integrated the two teams.

    Our Tech

    Overleaf is based on open source software, and most of our product code is itself open source. You can find it on GitHub: https://github.com/sharelatex/sharelatex (note: most activity is in the repos linked from there).

    We run a mainly Node.js back end using MongoDB, PostgreSQL and Redis. We use a microservices architecture, with about a dozen services. Most of our code is written in CoffeeScript, but we are in the process of decaffeinating to use ES6. On the front end, we mainly use Angular v1 and are incrementally migrating to React.

    We're hosted mainly on Linode and managed with Chef but will be moving imminently to Google Kubernetes Engine. We use Docker to manage our development environments. We support continuous delivery and typically deploy at least a few times a day (less on Fridays).

    How We Work

    Overleaf is remote-first — all founders and staff work remotely. We also have an office by King's Cross station for those in the London area, and we get the whole team together in London several times a year for face-to-face time.

    We encourage flexible working. Our core hours are 2pm–5pm UK time, during which our development teams have 10–15 minute daily standup calls. We have few standing meetings for developers, but we do many smaller video or voice calls for pairing or within teams.

    We always collect user feedback to inform our work. We have UX professionals on our team, and we run many surveys and user interviews.

    We organize our work with Kanban. We use GitHub pull requests for each feature with code review to share knowledge and best practices (and catch bugs). We test thoroughly with automated unit and acceptance tests, supported by continuous integration (CI). We're also fans of linting to minimise bike-shedding (and to catch bugs).

    About This Role

    We plan to add two developers to our team, one with a back end focus and one with a more full stack focus. Experience with some of Node.js, Kubernetes, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Redis, Angular and React are desirable. Ruby on Rails experience is also a plus, because we have one Rails service from before our integration with ShareLaTeX.

    Key projects on our road map this year include:

    • University Single Sign On — make it easier for users at our 60+ institutional customers to log in to Overleaf
    • New releases of our on premise editions — anyone can install our open source Community Edition, and many labs and companies install our commercially supported Server Pro edition
    • Improve our B2C conversion metrics and monitoring — a more data-heavy project focused on web analytics

    Here are some examples of projects (large and small) we've recently completed:

    In the longer term, we are planning projects around improved collaboration features for teams, improvements to our rich text mode, and more.

    How We Hire

    The stages in our hiring process are typically:

    1. We will aim to update you on the status of your application within 14 days from when we receive it.
    2. We'll follow up by email (or sometimes schedule a phone call) with any questions we have about your application, usually around logistics, your ambitions and your expectations about the role.
    3. We'll schedule a more in-depth interview, which is typically two hours long. The first hour is discussion, and the second hour is technical. For the technical, you'll have the option of either completing a homework assignment, which requires about one hour of your time before the interview, or solving a problem in the interview, if you prefer. The problems are practical in nature (no fizz-buzz or reversing linked lists), and you can use Google, man pages, etc., and ask us questions.
    4. We'll make an offer. We usually interview in batches, so there may be a short delay while we interview other candidates, but we will try to keep you informed throughout the process.

    If you have a deadline, please let us know in your application, and we will try to be accommodating.

    Requirements

    We require that you:

    • have a minimum of 2–3 years of relevant experience (we aren't taking on more new graduates at the moment).
    • will work for us full time (or nearly full time).
    • will usually be available in our core hours, 2pm–5pm UK time.

    Experience with the technologies we use is always a plus, but you don't need to know them all; your ability to learn is much more important to us.

    Benefits

    • Remote and flexible working.
    • Salary £40k–£75k per year depending on experience.
    • You would join a small, dedicated and growing team.
    • We're substantially (around 80%) open source, so your work will often be on open source code.
    • We're backed by Bethnal Green Ventures (https://bethnalgreenventures.com/) and Digital Science (https://www.digital-science.com/), through which we're part of a wider community of startups in science, health and ed-tech.
    • Our London office is shared with several other Digital Science companies, so there's lots of interesting people to meet, and clubs and sports activities outside of work.
    • We get everyone together in London for team meetings several times a year for valuable face-to-face time.
    • You can pick your own equipment. MacBook Pro? Lenovo ThinkPad? Notebook and pen? However you like to work, we'll provide what you need.
    • We provide a training budget; many of our developers choose to attend relevant industry conferences or buy training materials.
    • We run a biweekly internal seminar series (show and tell) with short talks from staff about their work or personal projects, new technologies and techniques.

    We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
