    On being a Security Engineer at balena

    We maintain a service infrastructure for IoT devices and provide our own device operating system. You will design, develop and deploy security controls and concepts strechting from cloud based applications to systems that run on embedded devices.

    People who are successful engineers are well-rounded generalists and great communicators. They are eager to take responsibility for a project, and are able to make good decisions about the project because they have the context of what's important.

    We don't require engineers to be already familiar with the technologies we use. We are happy to invest in people that showcase a strong understanding of the challenges of building secure distributed systems.

    Responsibilities

    • Actively invest back in our own technology, libraries, and frameworks
    • Be highly motivated to produce great code
    • Understand security best practices and strive to apply them in your work
    • Assist in new security control initiatives
    • Assist with the development and documentation of security architectures and roadmaps
    • Evaluate and address security reports and security problems
    • Design, architect, and own the execution of your projects
    • Ensure the architecture of our distributed system remains cohesive
    • Collaborate, brainstorm, and coordinate work with other balenistas
    • Understand the high-level goals, and thus know how to prioritize your work
    • Work efficiently with a certain amount of ambiguity in the tasks you're executing

    About balena

    Balena provides a software platform that helps developers build, deploy and manage code on connected devices. We brought Docker to embedded GNU/Linux devices in 2013 and have been building our IoT toolkit ever since. We also maintain a variety of successful open source projects including EtcheropenBalenabalenaOS and balenaEngine and made contributions to high-exposure projects such as DockerElectron, and AppImage.

    Our technology is open, standards-based, and proven in production across a wide range of scenarios from drones, 3D printers, point-of-sale devices, tidal turbines, skyscrapers and more. Our investors include DFJ, Aspect Ventures, GE, and Ericsson.

    Balena is a highly distributed, remote-friendly company with a pretty much flat hierarchy. Our organization is adaptive, getting feedback signals from our users and systems. Right now we organize ourselves by projects, which allow us to build complex features and solve big problems, while staying mutable. As a distributed group, we rely on clear communication and the rule of "assume positive intent" to help us work together across time zones, cultures and first languages. Our base of operations is nominally London, though really we are living all over the world: from Barcelona to Bulgaria, Argentina to Vietnam, and many more.

    REQUIREMENTS

    Need to have:

    • Desire to make yourself and others more effective. You'd be bothered by an inefficient process
    • Good understanding of software engineering practices and how to apply them
    • Excellent written communication skills, and fluency in English
    • Self-discipline to take on a project and push it to completion without too much management. You also know when to ask for help
    • Highly organized, able to handle many threads at once, and keep things moving
    • Ability to identify security issues and risks, and develop mitigation plans
    • Strong knowledge of current security threats, trends, and mitigations
    • Knowledge of network and web related protocols (e.g. TCP/IP, HTTP/S, SSH, OAuth2, SAML)

    Nice to have:

    • A sample of your work (URL or attached sample)
    • Contributions to OSS projects (please include a URL)
    • Having worked remotely before
    • Experience with balena as a user
    • Experience with embedded GNU/Linux, anything ranging from personal projects with a Raspberry Pi to commercial or industrial scenarios with custom devices
    • Experience and detailed technical knowledge of security engineering, system and network security, authentication and security protocols, cryptography, and application security

    Make sure to let us know if any of these items apply to you!

    We're looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to join the engineering team at Zapier. Want to create a simple product that allows anyone to do complex, incredible things with the world's APIs? Then keep reading!

    We know applying for and taking on a new job at any company requires a leap of faith. We want you to feel comfortable and excited to apply at Zapier. To help share a bit more about life at Zapier, here are a few resources in addition to the job description that can give you an inside look at what life is like at Zapier. We hope you'll take the leap of faith and apply.

    Zapier is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce.

    Even though our job description may seem like we're looking for a specific candidate, the role inevitably ends up tailored to the person who applies and joins. Regardless of how well you feel you fit our description, we encourage you to apply if:

    You care deeply about improving frontend technology so our customers can have a great experience using our product.

    About You

    You love code. You love to take raw ideas and build great products with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. You know JavaScript is imperfect, but you embrace its functional side and genuinely enjoy coding with it. You might like to talk about obscure computer science topics, but really, you just want to write simple code and ship new products and features to customers (or improve existing ones).

    You love great UX. You spend most of your time coding, but you also have an eye for great design and a feel for great UX. Maybe you were once a designer (or still are) or maybe your creative outlet has always been the code. Either way, you care about more than just the code.

    You love learning new things. You love researching new tech and driving forward with the implementation details. Your focus is on frontend JavaScript code, but you can dig in wherever needed. Python, CSS, build tools, shell scripts, you name it. If you don't already know it, you're ready to learn it.

    You can balance lots of concerns. Frontend apps have to take into account performance (using networks and devices that we can't control), customer demands, A/B tests, UX research, code quality, a rapidly changing ecosystem of languages and modules, and the list goes on. And we actually want to ship things too! You can balance those demands without getting overwhelmed and keep the needle moving forward.

    You love helping others. You love sharing knowledge with the rest of your team, building shared tooling for other engineers, giving back to the open-source community, and directly helping customers.

     

    Things You Might Do

    Zapier is a small, fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:

    • Research, guide, and execute frontend architecture changes, including but by no means limited to GraphQL, server-side React rendering, and Flow typing.
    • Build reusable React components with modular CSS, manage data on the client with Redux and GraphQL, and test everything with Jest.
    • Measure and resolve performance bottlenecks, using tools like Chrome DevTools, Lighthouse, WebPagetest, or custom tooling.
    • Refactor or improve existing code. We've migrated most of our frontend to React, but we still have some Backbone code to clean up. And we constantly find ways to improve all of our JavaScript code.
    • Work closely with our product, design, and UX teams to create amazing and intuitive experiences that make it effortless to connect different apps together.
    • Help put tools, processes, and documentation in place to improve our code quality.
    • Review code written by other team members or other teams.
    • Ship to hundreds of thousands of users every day while having lots of autonomy in terms of code and feature ownership.
    • Work with complex and varied data structures (APIs can be a little, uh, eccentric).
    • Help out with our Python backend or Node-based developer platform.
    • Share what you know and learn either one-on-one or with lightning talks to the group.
    • Give back to the community via open source and blog posts.
    • Experiment: this is a startup so everything can change as we experiment with doing more custom partnership work
    • As a part of Zapier's all-hands philosophy, help customers via support to ensure they have the best experience possible.

    You’ll also have the opportunity to specialize in a variety of areas of the Zapier codebase, including core product or platform development. Focusing on a specialization will not limit your area for growth at Zapier as each engineer brings a unique perspective and can contribute differently in all areas. We encourage participation and will frequently have engineers contribute across teams to assist in projects.

Our customers (mainly treasurers of sports clubs) absolutely love our product. Tens of thousands of club members have already made payments using our service.

    We're a small team (just under 50 people including 15 programmers), we love remote working but we also like to get together for beers and a great dinner.

    ClubCollect is built in Ruby (+ Ruby on Rails) and Elixir (+Phoenix). For this position you'll mainly develop in Ruby, with a chance to learn Elixir. We value simplicity, creative solutions, and the ability to get things done.

    You will have the opportunity to contribute to all areas of our code base.

    @recruiters: please don't contact us, we're not interested.

    REQUIREMENTS

    • You love Ruby
    • Experience with Erlang would be great
    • Several years experience with a modern web framework such as Rails or Django
    • Not shy to touch JS

    BENEFITS

    • Remote working but you must live in the European Union due to occasional team meetings in Amsterdam
    • Your own choice in top-of-the-line development hardware
  • About Sourceress

    Our mission is to help people find work that matters. We believe that the world is better when people understand the opportunities available to them. Our human-assisted AI platform delivers great results to our customers (customer quote: "I'd have a panic attack if you guys stopped existing").

    Because of this, we raised $3.5M from OpenAI researchers and Lightspeed Venture Partners at one of the highest ever valuations coming out of YC. Our team has previously sold companies, published machine learning research, has Dropbox's former Chief of Staff, and hails from MIT, Google, Airbnb, McKinsey, etc.

    Help us create a world where all 7 billion people work at jobs that they love, do things that they’re great at, and work for companies that are solving meaningful problems.


    Responsibilities

      • Solve the most important problems facing the business (generally by writing software, but not always!)
      • Minimize the complexity of the software that we create and maintain.
      • Continually improve your own software engineering skills (whether via side projects, classes, or whatever else works for you)
      • Help develop our team of talented engineers by mentoring, collaborating on projects and providing detailed code / architecture reviews.

    Sample projects

      • For detail-oriented engineers that love to build beautiful and highly correct products: we have greenfield customer-facing product work. These users depend on and love Sourceress, and are eager to help improve the product and provide feedback to your work.
      • For engineers that love rapid prototyping and hate CSS: we have a variety of products for our highly-trained internal contracting team. These are critical to the magical feeling of our product and often require creative solutions and complex interfaces.
      • For engineers who love data, systems, and infrastructure: we're also building a distributed model training and model scoring system. Because we care about all of the candidates in the world, we run into quite interesting infrastructure scaling problems that most startups would not hit they were much larger. As a result, a relatively small number of engineers get to solve “large” infrastructure problems end-to-end.
      • For engineers interested in machine learning, we have a variety of interesting problems touching a huge variety of sub-fields: NLP, deep learning, interpretability, fairness, graph-based learning, entity resolution, and much more are all relevant to our work. Engineers without prior experience but interest in learning can and will be taught the relevant skills.
      • For those engineers who care about clean code, developer tooling and productivity: we pride ourselves on exceptional developer tooling, and are constantly investing in our internal tools. For example: we've created a method that that allows us to attach a debugger to any process that has encountered an unexpected exception, even in production. This tool (we call it the Platinum Debugger) eliminates the time-consuming and often difficult step of reproducing the bug for about 90% of our bugs, vastly improving our productivity.

    Requirements

      • 3+ years of software engineering experience.
      • You’re an effective executor. You understand both the value of shipping quickly and of software craftsmanship, and have the judgment to know when to apply each. You’re capable, focused, and productive.
      • You’re cognizant of the multi-year consequences of your decisions.
      • You’r dependable. You do high-quality work, on time.
      • You’re incredibly smart.

    Stack

      • Typescript (react)
      • Type-annotated Python 3 (django, scikit-learn, pytorch)
      • PostgreSQL

    At Elastic, we have a simple goal: to solve the world's data problems with products that delight and inspire. As the company behind the popular open source projects — Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Beats — we help people around the world do great things with their data. From stock quotes to real time Twitter streams, Apache logs to WordPress blogs, our products are extending what's possible with data, delivering on the promise that good things come from connecting the dots. The Elastic family unites employees across 30+ countries into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.

    The Elastic Stack is the unparalleled swiss army knife of search and analytics. It takes hundreds of engineers and large infrastructure to keep its development on track. A critical piece of the effort is our multi-cloud, distributed CI environment. We need a dedicated lead to take over the people management, operational health, and delivery of its team.

    What you will be doing
    • Manage and mentor a globally distributed team of 5-10 experienced engineers. You would evaluate performance, give timely feedback, and advocate for their career paths.
    • Work closely with engineering teams and leadership to define requirements and roadmap. The product teams depend on CI constantly. Proactivity is important.
    • Organize effective call rotations to maximize service health and engineer quality of life.
    • Foster a culture of mutual respect, collaboration, and consensus-based decision-making.
    • Commit to software-first principles. We are developers that manage state.
    • Plan for team capacity and help drive recruitment of high quality people.
    What you will bring along
    • Significant experience leading teams of software engineers, preferably in site reliability. You don't need to have been a people manager, but this is a people management role. You can (and should!) write code, but your priority is to help others do it.
    • Significant experience building and deploying complex, and completely automated, systems. We run a multi-cloud, multi-OS environment built upon immutable infrastructure. It's a mixture of off-the-shelf Jenkins and custom software. You'll need technical empathy as you help your reports fulfill their mission.
    • Expert-level programming experience in at least one computer language and deep familiarity with its build and testing ecosystem.
    • Genuine care for the well-being of your employees, striving to be an emotionally intelligent, egoless, humble, servant-leader. A sense of humor is a big help. You believe that a diverse company is a better company.
    Experience/interest in these would be nice:
    • Search and analytics tools, particularly the Elastic Stack. A love for what our company builds will only help.
    • We are a polyglot team; a love for languages would serve you well.
    • Speaking/presenting publicly. You will need to communicate effectively to others.
    • Open source. OSS is our DNA. If you have ever contributed to an open-source project, or even just followed one closely you'll have a good sense for how our company operates.
    Additional Information
    • Competitive pay
    • Equity
    • Catered lunches, snacks, and beverages in most offices
    • An environment in which you can balance great work with a great life
    • Passionate people building great products
    • Employees with a wide variety of interests

      • Ensure that candidates have a great experience at each customer -- integrating into the application tracking system to ensure that no candidates are dropped, flagging high priority candidates for the customer that need action right now, and allowing customers to see metrics about their recruiting funnel so they can improve the experience themselves.

    2 months ago

    We are looking for a software engineer, passionate (it’s the most important) with several years of experience crafting software (it is better) but if you feel that you have the potential, don't hesitate, and with:

     

    - broad experience in back-end development, HTTP and APIs

     

    - professional experience with Go, knowledge of distributed systems and simplicity, familiar with the UNIX philosophy, database such as MySQL, swagger ...

     

    - A big + would be that you understand or you have worked as a DevOps as we build a DevOps platform.

     

    What is also important is that we are looking for more than just a developer. We are looking for a person who can build with us new features, can bring some new ideas to what could be a great DevOps platform to build a bridge between Dev & Ops & tools.

     

    We work on empowering people so we don't have a full-time product manager due to our culture.

    We use modern and well-supported tools to build the best possible version of our product in collaboration with the API and design teams.
     
    At a high level, the web architecture consists of a Node server (TypeScript), with React for rendering on both the server and client.
     
    Over the years, we’ve taken Unsplash from a humble Tumblr blog to a fully-fledged web app supporting tens of millions of users and tons of useful features. At the same time, we’ve improved its performance by leveraging modern techniques like SSR, dynamic chunk-splitting, CDN HTML caching, complex state management using memoization and Observables, etc. We’ve done all that with a lean team of just 2 web developers: frequent code releases and in-depth code reviews help us share knowledge and identify problems early. But there’s still so much more to learn and do, and that’s why we need you!
     
    We designed our company in a way to get as much of the stuff that’s not the creative work out of your way, so you can do your best work. We don’t believe in a top-down, shoulder-tapping, 9–5 type culture. You have the autonomy to manage yourself. We don’t work set hours. We respect flow. We believe you should be able to structure your days for what makes you feel the most energized and creative.
     
    A glance at some of our blog posts and open source work can give you an idea on how we approach and solve our problems:
     
    Recently open sourced libraries:
     
    Recent blog posts:
    You
    If you tick (most of) these boxes, you should get in touch with us:
     
    • You’re comfortable being part of a small, autonomous and distributed team.
    • Being a small team, we dive into everything. You are comfortable working across the full stack, from writing CSS to fine tuning a CDN—although we don’t expect you to know these skills upfront, but you should be willing to learn them when they become necessary.
    • You’re a quick learner who’s able to pick up new concepts whenever necessary.
    • You’re able to adequately prioritize between improving UX, optimizing performance, and building new features.
    • You’re comfortable with React.
    • You care about the end-product beyond just writing the code that makes it work.
     
    It’s a bonus if you have experience with:
    • TypeScript, Redux, Reselect, Observables.
    • front-end performance (e.g. optimising page load, page layout, and React rendering).
    • building a large-scale app
     
    Our team is made up of people who enjoy making things people love. We care about details and we care about quality.
     
    • Generous vacation: 3 weeks MINIMUM vacation.
    • Work from home: We’re a remote first company.
    • Workshops/conferences: Conferences & Learning budget.
    • Company retreats: Team retreats 1-2 times a year.
    • Relocation: If you’d like to relocate to Montreal, we provide $8,000 lump sum to cover out-of-pocket costs associated with relocation
    • Flexible hours: You manage your time. You set your working hours.
    • Maternal/Paternal leave: If you have a baby, you’re paid for any time you need to take off. The time you take off will be your judgment. This is an important time and we don’t want to be deciding which days you should be taking off or not. We’ll be there for you. If we feel the balance is not quite right or if you have any questions, we’ll chat.
    • Pet friendly: Obviously if you work from home, but also if you relocate to Montreal. Our office is pet friendly.
    If you want to work with us, all we want to see is a message from you. Please don’t send a resume. Instead, tell us who you are. Show us relevant things you’ve done that you’re excited about.

    Plato is a new type of design agency. We empower people to do what they love from anywhere in the world. Our vision is to blend the best of human creativity with the power of Machine Learning to reimagine collaboration with each other, and partnership with our clients.

    We believe that if you hire talented folks, lead with trust, and give people the tools they need to succeed, then creativity will come. Our team is completely distributed, but we’re building new modes of operation together.

    Our team leverages technology to collaborate because we want to, dives into deep work when we need to, and (every so often) connects in real life because we like to. With us, you get the opportunity to be curious and collaborate with passionate peers, without sacrificing autonomy or career ownership.

    Plato is proud to be backed by Y Combinator and some of Silicon Valley’s best investors. Join us on our untraditional, inspiring journey.

    What We're Building

    Plato’s engineering team focuses on managing the complex flow of tasks, assets, and data between clients, creatives, and Plato agency staff, leveraging a workflow system to encode the processes for each types of design projects.

    We strive to:

    • enable our clients to request new design projects and provide feedback
    • let creatives in our network submit work and iterate
    • empower our agency team to oversee many projects with minimal coordination overhead

    Roles & Responsibilities

    • designing and building our core workflow engine
    • integrating or replacing the software tools used for managing agency processes
    • instrumenting and measuring efficiency metrics to help understand agency capacity
    • discovering and proposing optimizations to the agency team’s workflows

    Your Working Style

    • Strong Written Communication Skills: Plato is a remote-first team. In order to work effectively as a distributed team, it’s important to capture our thinking in a way that’s useful for asynchronous collaborators. - note about cover letters being required?
    • Productive Laziness: Plato’s goal is to scale beyond what other agencies have been able to accomplish. This involves relentlessly chasing down mundane tasks that can be automated, in order to free up creative thinkers to do what they do best. Successful Plato engineers will have found ways to automate their personal tasks or engineering workflows and enjoy analyzing existing processes and looking for optimizations.
    • Empathy for Users and Colleagues: We believe that engineers who genuinely care about their colleagues and users will be more effective in spotting potential improvements and in prioritizing tactical fixes that help users alongside the team’s core engineering work.

    Your Background

    • >= 5 years Web Development Experience: We are looking for engineers who can take ownership of large parts of our architecture. This requires thoughtful tradeoffs such as when to incur technical debt vs when to engineer something more robustly. We believe this kind of skill is earned through a track record of building and owning substantial systems. 
    • JS/React and Python: Though we use a Python/Django API backend with a React frontend, we believe that candidates with the right attitude and a willingness to learn are more likely to succeed than those with resumes that happen to contain the exact list of technologies we work with. This was our policy at the last company we founded (URX YC S’13), and lifelong learning is a core part of our engineering culture.
    • System Architecture: Independent of the tech stack, it’s important to understand various options for integrating a multi-component system through queues, databases, micro services, etc.

    You are the voice of the customer inside Giant Swarm and the voice of Giant Swarm towards the customers, helping both sides to be successful.

    Your Job:

    • You work closely with customers to understand their architecture and further their understanding of Giant Swarm, helping them to get the most out of our product and the CNCF landscape, master Cloud Native tools like Kubernetes, Prometheus as well as Loki, Helm and others.
    • Our solution architects are becoming part of diverse open source communities around tools that our customers need and use, contributing back to those projects where possible. You build and maintain helm charts that might start out as a special project for one customer and end up being a managed service run by all our customers.
    • You hold trainings and workshops at conferences, for our existing customers, as well as with Giant Swarm’s potential customers. . Do note that the role requires minimum travel as most of our interactions as a fully remote company are via video conferencing.
    • Learn from customer's problems with moving to microservices architectures, get your hands dirty and find out what Cloud Native project's entrails look like. The more successful our customers are with the Cloud Native journey, the more successful we are.
    • Ultimately, you are also responsible for documentation, helping the product teams implement fixes, prioritizing features and making sure we only need to answer questions once.
    • First impressions are important! You help create a great onboarding experience for our customers and become the main point of contact for them.
    • To sum it up: Customer Success is all that matters. Within the solution engineering team, we make sure our customers are happy and taking the right steps going forward, at best you anticipate the problems they might face in the future.

    Requirements:

    • You have experience with more than one programming language, including Go, and a strong architectural background.
    • You feel at home in the Kubernetes world, especially the multitude of Open Source tools around Kubernetes and the Container World.
    • You can explain complicated things concisely and easily for a diverse audience.
    • You have a strong sense in providing an awesome customer service that makes life easier for Developers. Your communication skills (especially written form) are excellent. Very good English skills are a must-have. German skills are a bonus.
    • You are open to attend conferences with our team and hold talks in front of customers. You are happy to travel 5-10% per year
    • We (and our customers) are currently mostly distributed around Europe (around UTC), thus, your main timezone should be somewhere between -2UTC to +2UTC to ensure better communication.

    Why we think this position is worth applying for (challenge us!)

    • Impact, Impact, Impact! We are a growing team (from 15+ European countries) and every new team member changes the team. This is great! People who know things we don’t are highly welcome.
    • “It's better to ask forgiveness than permission” (Paolini) - sure, it’s not 100% like this, but we have a strong culture of failure which is part of our agile mindset. We don’t do things like in the guidebook. Hell, our customers choose us because we are building how the guidebook should look in this day and age. You can try things out.
    • We play a key role in our customer's digital transformation. We have partnered up with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft to provide our solution on their cloud platforms - more will follow.
    • We serve some of Europe's leading organizations and are talking to many more.

    What is it like to work at Giant Swarm?

    We would like to give you a glimpse on how working with Giant Swarm(we are a fully remote team) is like:

    Self-organization

    Creative work needs freedom and openness. We encourage you to do your work wherever (some of us travel almost half the year and work from remote islands) and whenever you want (keeping in mind that there are some meetings we would like you to attend). We expect passion and encourage sustainability. If you need rest, take it. If you take up a task, own it. If you see a problem, solve it.

    Teamwork

    We are a growing company with team members distributed all over Europe and plans on expanding to the US. Our ambitious goals are only achievable as a team. Everybody’s input is highly welcome and appreciated. Although sometimes rules and processes are necessary, we try to keep them as lean as possible. Always question the status quo and find new ways of collaboration and team work.

    Learning

    Learning is mandatory and fun at the same time. If you realize you want to expand your knowledge in a specific area, we support you with conferences, books etc.

    Basics

    We offer fair (transparent and open) salaries with benefits like choosing your own laptop, your choice to work at home or in a coworking space, flexible hours, minimal meetings, transparent communication, etc.. And you will participate in our stock options program. Currently our team members have more children than we are employees. So family friendliness is a must. We don't hire job descriptions. We hire humans. :) We welcome applications from everybody, regardless ethnic or national origin, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation or age.

  • Motiion (USA)
    1 month ago
    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.

    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.

    At LightStep, our mission is to deliver confidence at scale for those who develop, operate, and rely upon today’s powerful software applications. We created LightStep because we understand the massive architectural transformation underway in the software industry, and we saw an opportunity to accelerate it, all while improving the quality of the developer and end-user experience. While we learned a great deal from our experiences building Dapper (Google’s distributed tracing solution) and Monarch (Google’s high-availability metrics solution), LightStep is in many ways a reaction to and a generational improvement beyond those approaches. Our story as individuals and as a company revolves around continuous learning, careful listening, and the belief that these fundamentally new software architectures require fundamentally new solutions.

    The OpenTracing project defines a standard that makes understanding, building, and improving distributed systems easier. In doing so, it improves the quality of open source tools and applications across the board. LightStep wants to support that goal: we all benefit when complex software becomes self-describing. We’re looking for a teammate who is knowledgeable about popular open source technologies and best practices, eager to be an expert on distributed systems performance, and can lend a hand as a teacher, communicator, and open source code contributor to help move the OpenTracing community forward.

    The OSS Engineer role is for software developers with a love for working open source, and interest in product management. In addition writing code, the OSS engineers are expected to show leadership by helping others contribute, champion issues, and managing project roadmaps and backlogs.

    Valued strengths

    • You are self-motivated and are great at prioritization, even when there’s “too much to do.”
    • You have experience working on distributed systems and performance at scale.
    • Capable of engaging with other large OSS projects and champion their adoption of OpenTracing.
    • Comfortable working in multiple languages, and strong language-level expertise in at least one.
    • You’re capable of mediating conflict and managing people who don’t work for you.

    Bonus points if…

    • You’re already an active participant in the OpenTracing community.
    • You have previous experience managing or contributing to a large open source project.
    • You’re a good teacher and public speaker.
    • Have a positive voice on social media.

Our platform gives researchers a single place to quickly find the right participants for their projects, as well as schedule and pay them instantly. It simplifies the work that’s necessary to conducting quality research. Companies like IBM, Airbnb, Uber, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble and many more have already integrated us into their research processes.

    Respondent is not only at the forefront of research we are also at the forefront of work trends. We are firm believers that the world is transitioning to a remote workforce and as a result, are an entirely distributed team. Cities are becoming more expensive and commutes are growing longer. Working on a distributed team gives our team members the chance to live in more affordable and desirable locations without a lengthy commute.

    We are a small, quickly growing startup. Working as a distributed team allows us to hire the best talent regardless of location (right now everyone works in a US Time Zone). As a growing startup all employees work up and down their vertical. You will work on things that seem more senior than you are used to (you’ll be answering problems that no one has the answers to) while simultaneously working on things that seem more junior than you are used to--and everything in between. Additionally, to fill gaps across our small team all employees work outside of what they might consider their normal job responsibilities. This blog post outlines how we work as a distributed team.
    We encourage those who are underrepresented in technology companies to apply!

    Responsibilities:

    * Directly manage seven engineers--we’re growing!--through coaching, giving feedback, having one-on-ones, assisting with career development, giving performance reviews, etc.
    * Hire for and build an incredible engineering culture.
    * Create and improve engineering processes, applications, and systems for scale (you are leading this from the ground up!), which you will need to ensure are documented and communicated. You will build the blueprint, which will be hugely impactful for the company.
    * You will report to the CEO, manage projects and collaborate with key stakeholders, including other teams such as design, product and sales.
    * Perform code reviews (we use Node.js).
    * Guide and build scalable backend applications to support the growing needs of the business.
        * Work with both SQL (we use Postgres) and NoSQL (Neo4j/MongoDB) databases and caching technologies like Redis.
    * Take full ownership and responsibility for building, shipping, and maintaining core features, end to end.
    * Collaborate with our Co-Founder and Architect to scale infrastructure and introduce new technologies.
    * One of your first projects will be to do an audit of how we do things (look at our processes, talk to engineers, etc.) and determine what are priorities should be.

    Who are you?

    * Proven ability to lead high performing teams and to promote an incredible engineering culture
    * A BS degree in Computer Science or other related technical fields preferred
    * Experience with Node.js applications in production (most of our stack), REST APIs, CI/CD and unit testing
    * Comfortable with agile methodologies (scrum, kanban, etc)
    We are looking for someone who matches our level of joy for the work we do, brings something new to the team, and elevates our game. Our values are: Always Researching, Ownership, Active Honesty, and Thriving Together. Read more about them here.

    Benefits:

    Working at Respondent is a unique experience. You will be part of a remote, diversified team around the US. and world. We care deeply about creating a cohesive, tight-knit culture that gets results. That’s why we offer our employees the following:

    * Work remotely from anywhere in a US Time Zone (this does not have to be in the US itself, but rather must be in a US Time Zone: ex. Mexico City, Mexico)
    * A new office set up, including a new Macbook Pro, desk, second screen, ergonomic chair, and wireless mouse & keyboard
    * Health insurance for US-based employees covered at 99% for individuals and 50% for dependents (non-US employees receive a healthcare stipend)
    * Short Term Disability covered at 100% for all US-based employees
    * Dental and Vision insurance offered at group rates to lower the cost for US-based employees
    * Four weeks of flexible vacation (need a bit more for religious or country holidays--no problem!)
    * Paid holidays
    * Stock options
    * Company retreats for teammates to get to know one another in-person: our last retreat was in New Orleans!

    Bear Group is a leading web development firm based in Seattle looking for an experienced backend web developer to join our team. You will have the opportunity to work with leading companies and marketing teams to develop complex sites and integrations between systems.
     
    We are a fully distributed team that primarily builds in PHP on the Magento and Drupal platforms for ecommerce and content management sites. Since we are fully remote, you can work from anywhere! We do require at least 4 hours of working time overlap with the Pacific time zone work day where most of our clients are located. As a highly client focused organization, you will occasionally need to meet according to their schedule. This typically falls between 10 and 5 Pacific time, and we strive to give you plenty of time to focus on development.
     
    Working with a variety of clients, we fluidly form groups including a Technical Project Manager, a Quality Analyst, and one or more developers to complete sprints of work. The type of work depends on the client, but often includes:
    • Developing client web sites using Drupal and Magento Commerce
    • Focus on front-end development: HTML/CSS/Javascript coding, with Twig and PHP at template level
    • Balancing workload across many projects simultaneously
    • Quality assurance and testing across projects
    • Collaborating cross-functionally and with a diverse group of clients
    • Working with business development to assess and price new client projects
     
    You will need to be self-motivating and able to work independently most of the time, but we have a friendly and capable team to collaborate with when you encounter obstacles. You’ll need to have a minimum of 3-5 years of related work experience, a BA/BS degree, and experience with Drupal, Magento or similar open source frameworks. You’ll also need to be visually oriented with experience in Sketch or Photoshop and a good understanding of content organization and concepts within information architecture. Experience in client-service environments is a must and you’ll need to be professional and client service oriented; positive and proactive; able to react swiftly to meet client expectations.
     
    Since the technology world is constantly evolving, you’ll be expected to keep up with the current technologies and practices. To help with this, we provide an annual education stipend that can be used for attending relevant conferences or continued education courses.
     
    During your first week you will work closely with one or our senior developers to set up your new system and familiarize with our processes and tools. The system will be either Mac, Linux, or Windows to your preference, and we use Docker containers for a consistent development server stack. Other tools you will use include:
    • Git for source control
    • Bitbucket for Git repositories
    • Jira for project management
    • Confluence for documentation
    • Slack for communication.
    As you get your feet under you we will introduce some project work, again in collaboration with a senior developer on a sprint they are currently working on. Ultimately our developers work independently on your own tickets and sprints.
     
    In addition to competitive pay, a new computer, insurance, and 401k match, you’ll also receive:
    • 3 Weeks PTO plus approximately 10 vacation days annually
    • $1500 annual education stipend
    • Software stipend for the tools that you prefer to do the job

  • Development specialized on the free software project Open edX, used by many universities and companies to run online courses. See edx.org, stanford.edu or fun-mooc.fr for examples of Open edX instances.

    The Open edX platform is a large Python/Django codebase, with good code standards and architecture (a lot of the edX engineers come from MIT). You would work on different clients contracts using the platform. The clients list/references include Harvard, MIT, edX themselves, the French government, and various startups & universities currently running their own instances, or looking to create one. Tasks are very varied, from developing core platform features, custom exercises and tools for specific courses (XBlocks), customizing and deploying instances, working fullstack, operating our service infrastructure, improving our hosting platform, etc. You won't get bored here.


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


    - 3+ years working with Python
    - Experience with Python web frameworks, specifically Django
    - 3+ years of HTML, Javascript, and CSS (experience with React is a big plus!)
    - Experience with unit testing
    - You feel comfortable working in a Linux environment, specifically Debian or Ubuntu
    - Experience with databases: MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL
    - Experience with contributing to free software projects, and communicating within a free software community

    You would have to work with tasks from the following categories, but you would be able to pick up the skills on the job if you don't master this yet:

    - DevOps experience, especially on Debian/Ubuntu servers, Terraform, Vault, Packer, Prometheus, ELK, Docker. We are building a modern infrastructure and having a strong DevOps presence on top of core software engineering skills is a big plus with us.

    - Cloud computing, like AWS or OpenStack

    - Configuration management tools such as Ansible

    - RabbitMQ, Redis & Elasticsearch

    - git source control

    - Mobile development (iOS and/or Android)

    - Managing clients & projects from beginning to completion (senior developer)

    - Public speaking at conferences (you would present a talk every year at the Open edX Con)


    We are a team of twenty developers, all working remotely from Europe, North & South America, Asia & Australia. You would arrive at a critical moment, as we scale up to handle increasing demand from clients on the edX platform. The company is not affiliated with edX, but contributing and working with them on various projects. This is a full time position, were you would be able to work remotely from anywhere you want, as long as you have a good internet connexion. : )

    SRE
    1 month ago

    What You Will Do

    You will be a member of a six-person Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team responsible for maintaining and evolving the operational infrastructure for the Let’s Encrypt certificate authority. You will work closely with our application software developers and management to plan and implement the future of the certificate authority, its software applications, and its policies and procedures.

    We provide secure and reliable service to more than 150 million websites around the world. We expect this number to grow rapidly. As such it’s a unique opportunity to have an enormous impact on creating a more secure and privacy-respecting Web.

    In some organizations, the people responsible for deploying applications are left out of the full application development lifecycle. They are simply handed something at the end and told “make this run reliably, securely, and efficiently” while the infrastructure management role is devalued or taken for granted. That is not how we do things at Let’s Encrypt. SRE is part of the application development lifecycle from start to finish and we heavily invest in enabling and building infrastructure that is reliable, secure, and efficient. SRE is given latitude, time, and resources to do things The Right Way.

    Automation is central to everything you and your team will build and maintain. You will automate operations extensively for the sake of security, scalability, correctness, compliance, and financial efficiency. You will make sure that when something does need to be done manually, it can be done in a safe and efficient manner. Our focus on automation means we are particularly interested in candidates with software engineering skills.

    Our physical infrastructure includes servers, storage, switches, firewalls, and HSMs deployed across two highly secure data centers. While the majority of our infrastructure runs on our own hardware, we do use external cloud and CDN providers for some peripheral systems.

    We use open source software (e.g. Linux, Prometheus, Grafana, SaltStack) extensively and prefer it when it can get the job done. The core CA application software that your team will be responsible for deploying is open source and written by our software development team.

    Effective engineers know how to properly prioritize and communicate well. We will be looking for those skills in candidates.

    Requirements

    • Two years professional experience as a software developer
    • An understanding of why writing tests for software is critical
    • A willingness to travel approximately three times per year
    • A willingness to be on-call (time split between six people)
    • Personal organization ability so that people can depend on you (e.g. task lists, calendar management)

    Skills You Will Need to Develop

    We write most of our code in Go and Python. You don’t need to know these languages coming in but you will need to learn them.

    You will need to develop systems and network administration skills if you haven’t already. This means, for example, learning to manage firewalls and routers, work with automation tools like SaltStack, and manage virtual machines on both physical and cloud infrastructure.

    You will need to gain domain-specific knowledge (e.g. PKI) but you don’t need to know it coming in.

    Location and Benefits

    This is a remote position available anywhere in the United States or Canada.

    Benefits include excellent health insurance, a 100% match for 401k contributions, and flexible time off and parental leave policies.

    We’re looking for talented individuals interested in joining a new and growing global company. At Slang, you’ll be an early team member of a well-funded startup spun out from MIT. We’re building a world-class team to revolutionize language learning with cutting-edge technology and beautiful design.


    What we’re working on at Slang

    Slang started at MIT as a research project on using AI and NLP to make learning a new language as efficient as possible. Our technology powers a highly adaptive e-learning platform that offers an unprecedented variety of specialized English courses and proficiency tests for career development in over fifty fields like Sales, Finance, Logistics, Medicine, and Law. With just a small team, we’ve already created the largest professional English offering in the world. Now, we’re scaling up to release 1,000 more courses over the next three years.

    Learn more about our unique approach at slangapp.com. We’d love to field any questions you have about our product and vision!


    What this role is about

    In this role, you’ll be involved in both product development and company strategy and execution — you’ll own the research, design, and development of the back ends of new features and you’ll help us refine our product roadmap. We have tens of thousands of active users and many subproblems in language learning to tackle.


    Our codebase is built with best practices in mind and our product is designed with proper user and developer experience at the forefront of development. The work we’re facing encompasses interesting infrastructural hurdles and data-heavy modeling and algorithmic tasks.


    Some of our technology comes from the open-source community, so be prepared to contribute back!

    Some interesting problems we’re tackling

    How can we determine what parts of a language a user already knows from a small sample of test exercises? How should we decide which parts of a language a user should learn next?

    How should we architect our database to support the growing number of activities our users submit every week (currently at more than a million per week)?

    How can we aggregate and communicate the learning statistics of a company’s employees for display to their managers?

    How can we analyze and leverage the massive amount of learner and content data we have to improve our learners’ experience?

    Skills and technologies

    Two or more years of experience in modern back-end web development, including…

    … Experience with modern web API stacks and related technologies, with a preference for Ruby on Rails experience.

    … Experience with database technologies, data structures, and related optimization. We currently deal with large amounts of data in PostgreSQL and Redis.

    A strong desire to maintain a clean, reliable, maintainable, and efficient codebase.

    Excellent discipline and focus, especially in autonomous environments, and strong English communication skills. We’re a small team and we’re moving quick!

    A plus: interest or experience with computational linguistics, natural-language processing (NLP), language-learning, speech recognition, data science, or machine learning.


    What Slang can offer you

    Our compensation package includes a competitive salary, company equity, and unique benefits.

    Most importantly, we offer the special experience of being part of a fast-moving and quickly growing international company within the entrepreneurial ecosystems of Boston and MIT.

    For more information about Slang and our ecosystem, check out our El Tiempo interview from our beta launch; the portfolio of Social Capital, our lead investor and investor in companies like Slack and Intercom; our Crunchbase profile; and the profiles of our founders, Diego Villegas and Kamran Khan.


    Where we’re located

    Our team is currently split between Boston and Bogotá, and we are recruiting great people in these locations and around the world who are able to work remotely. This role provides an opportunity to travel to our current offices in Boston and Bogotá and the new offices we’ll be opening this year!

    Our US headquarters is located in the Cambridge Innovation Center in the heart of downtown Boston, easily accessible by public transportation and alongside other innovative companies. Our Colombia office is located in the Rosales neighborhood of Bogotá.

  • Hundreds of thousands of businesses have bet their success on the reliability and performance of the Shopify platform. Uptime, resiliency and efficiency are critical to these businesses and as a result of Shopify’s rapid growth and massive scale, we have many interesting and challenging infrastructure problems to solve.

     

    At the heart of this platform are Shopify’s core database systems. These systems, where we store all merchant and customer data, are built around the MySQL ecosystem of open source tools. Over the past several years, we have been hard at work scaling and improving our database infrastructure, handling almost two million queries per second at peak. Now, we want to take it to the next level and we need your help to get us there!

     

    Responsibilities as a Database Engineer:

     

    As a member of Shopify’s Production Engineering organization and the Datastores team, you’ll be directly responsible for the scalability, availability, and integrity of the Shopify database infrastructure.

     

    As a Database Engineer, your day to day activities will include working closely with the support and development teams, some traditional database administration (DBA) work and some modern systems administration work (managing cloud infrastructure). As we continue to grow and scale, we need to achieve as much as possible through automation and hands-off management. We need your help, your experience, and your crazy ideas to design, build, and deploy the next generation of database management infrastructure to expand on what we have built to keep it truly world-class.

     

    We are currently running a cloud based state-of-the-art stack on Google’s Compute Engine and Container Engine. Our next challenges involve moving all our systems, including MySQL itself, as containerized services running under Kubernetes.

     

    All members of Production Engineering, including leads, also participate in an on-call rotation.

    You’ll need to:

    Have experience with the administration, operation, and performance tuning of MySQL, ideally in a Linux environment.

    Maintain an understanding of modern solutions to deploy services at scale.

    Be proficient in at least one programming language, and have the ability to read, write and understand scripts in languages such as Ruby, Python, or Go.

    Have an insatiable appetite to grow and learn how to manage systems at scale. It would be great if you:

    Understand modern high availability (HA) designs for MySQL, and have used MySQL HA-management solutions, such as Orchestrator.

    Have experience with MySQL proxies, such as ProxySQL.

    Understand containerization and deployment on Linux using technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes.

    Are up-to-speed and comfortable with cloud infrastructure, designs, and tools for Google Cloud and/or Amazon Web Services.

    Have some familiarity with existing cloud-managed “Database as a Service” solutions, such as  Google’s Cloud SQL or Amazon’s RDS/Aurora.

    Are competent using git for version control and especially using GitHub for pull requests, reviews, and issue management.

    Are familiar with the ecosystem of Open Source software used in production web environments, such as Rails, Redis and memcached.

     

    Some things you’ll be working on in your first few months:

    Learn about Shopify’s MySQL-based database infrastructure and get comfortable working safely and efficiently in it.

    Work on the projects that will allow us to offer to our internal customers a standardized “Database as a Service” platform which would cover absolutely all their needs, including HA, data integrity, schema migrations and changes, security, monitoring and alerts.

    Test (and try to break) our high availability systems in interesting new ways, and work out the kinks found in the process.

    Respond to internal support requests from other teams to help ensure their success in developing their own applications or supporting their customers.

     

    We know that applying to a new role takes a lot of work and we truly value your time. We are looking forward to reading your application. Please take some time to tell us why you’d be an awesome addition to our team and how this role would be a fit for you!

    1 month ago
    Reaction Commerce is the fastest-growing open source commerce management platform used by modern retailers and our vision is to connect the world through open commerce.

    As our platform grows, so must our team. We’re currently looking for a Software Engineer with experience shipping production software to join us.
    We're a distributed, diverse, and growing team currently spread across four continents. While we have a small office in Santa Monica, CA, all of our positions are remote roles. Everyone is welcome to visit and work from our office, but it's not required. Although we are remote first, we appreciate quality time with our co-workers, so we meet in person once a year for our annual All Hands.

    About this Role:

    You'll remotely work with a team of engineers within our distributed engineering team to:
    * Build intuitive UIs for retailers and merchandisers
    * Define patterns for extending or augmenting storefront and operator UIs
    * Engineer methods for securing core and custom GraphQL APIs
    * Increase accessibility of all our applications
    * Improve tooling for building and shipping new UI components, storefronts, and operator tools
    * Improve performance, reduce page weight/cost, and decrease load times for our storefront and operator UIs

    About You:

    * You have developed and supported software systems in a production environment.
    * You see the value in reviewing and documenting code, pair programming and get excited about improving tools and processes.
    * You love being a mentor and compassionately teach patterns and best practices to engineers on your team.

    * React and Apollo GraphQL on the client
    * Node with some services in Clojure on the server
    * GraphQL API
    * MongoDB for most application data.
    * Apache Kafka for modeling both streams and tables.
    * Elasticsearch
    * Docker and Kubernetes on Amazon Web Services
    Do you want to know more about what our team is working on and how you might be able to help? You should apply!

    More about Reaction:

We aim to offer the same benefits to everyone across the globe, but some of these may vary based on location and local laws. All remote employees are offered a budget for an ergonomic chair and standing desk at home.
    We discourage our team members from working unreasonable hours, beyond the typical 40 hours per week. And it's important that we take time off and recharge when necessary, that's why we have a minimum vacation policy that encourages us to take a minimum of 15 vacation days per year. We also value continuous improvement with a monthly learning stipend, so there are plenty of opportunities to learn new subjects or hone existing skills.

    We believe in good documentation and proactive communication. Inclusivity is a priority of everyone on our team. Read more about our team values and our operating principles in this blog post.

    Narrative is building the first global data marketplace. It has often been said that data is the new currency. Unfortunately, maximizing the value of data is often easier said than done. On one side, transacting via individual point to point integrations carries a lot of overhead in both business development and technical integration efforts. On the other, going through big aggregators introduces opacity in the pricing and provenance of the data. At Narrative, we help our customers get value from their data by building a central auction platform to reduce the friction and tooling to increase the transparency in this process.

    We are a small, early stage team looking for great developers who want to jump in and take major systems and user-facing features from design to launch. Here’s where we are now:

    We are operating in Amazon Web Services. Our services are mainly deployed on EC2 provisioned with Terraform.

    We also heavily use other technology on AWS such as DynamoDB, S3, and RDS.

    Our backend includes a data ingestion web service with supporting Kinesis consumers, along with a growing array of Spark projects. It’s written mostly in Scala, with a smattering of Python for lambda functions.

    We sit somewhere in the middle of the “Scala as a worse Haskell” and “Scala as a better Java” spectrum. We love functional programming and we do make use of libraries like cats, but at the same time we heavily favor core language features and have no intention of rewriting everything using Free Monads.

    Our web app UI is written in Typescript with Angular2 and a supporting API running on Node, and is deployed and monitored using much the same supporting tech as the backend.

    Other services we use include: GitHub, CircleCI, DataDog.

    Here are some examples of projects that we would like some help with:

    Interactive tools to help buyers discover the data they need to accomplish their business objectives.

    Interactive tools to help sellers maximize the yield from the data that they are selling.

    Data analytics pipelines to drive the interactive report UIs. For example: reports for yield forecasting and deal pre-qualification.

    The ideal candidate should:

    Have experience building modern web applications using Javascript, HTML, and CSS.

    Be able to debug various aspects of web application code, such as cross-browser Javascript quirks.

    Thoroughly understand the HTTP lifecycle and how the browser interacts with web APIs.

    Enjoy building fast, user-friendly UIs.

    Not be afraid of contributing to the entire stack when the need arises, given that frontend doesn’t simply mean HTML/CSS. For instance, a feature might require

    some metrics to be computed from a Spark Report

    creating a MySQL migration script

    tweaking S3 permissions and terraform scripts for deployment

    We are not looking for a 100% fit on all the technology buzzwords, but we are looking for someone with strong technical skills who is eager to pick up new technologies as necessary.

    We are building the team with a remote-first mindset, and as a result every team member is expected to have an ability to synthesize business requirements, distill the domain, contribute to high-level design documents, efficiently communicate asynchronously, and more generally work autonomously toward a shared vision.

    Continuously investing in quality (code quality, tests, pull request reviews, refactoring…) is part of our strategy to sustainably maximize the business value we deliver.

    About Narrative

    These days, data is everywhere and has immense benefits for businesses. Companies that have data can sell it to companies that need it to improve their business; a win-win situation. However, current data discovery and distribution inefficiencies slow this win-win situation down to a grinding halt.

    Narrative simplifies the data landscape by automating the hard-to-navigate world of data acquisition and distribution into two, easy-to-use software platforms.

    As a hands-on Tech Lead at Twilio, you are empowered to create wonderful experiences for our customers, who are developers and builders. 
     
    • You are excited when you release something that makes it easier for a developer to focus on the creative side of code.
     
    • You think about how your product will help the customer that spends $10s of millions with Twilio, and the customer who hasn't spent $1 yet.

    • Working with the team to solve complex challenges and contributing ideas and solutions regularly

    Skills and qualifications

    • Good understanding of browser rendering behavior and performance
    • Bachelors degree in computer science
    • Excellent communication skills

    Pulumi is headquartered in Seattle, WA. This role is home office, preferably based on the East Coast to best serve our customers there. If you prefer a co-working space, that can be arranged. We are committed to our remote workforce and building a cohesive team.

    In This Job You Will:

    Work with customers across their entire lifecycle - from pre-sales (demos, answering inbound questions, reaching out to new users) to post-sales (on-boarding, technical reviews, answering support tickets.)

    Create technical materials for customers - examples, guides, demo scripts, product briefs, etc.

    Onboard enterprise customers, optimizing Pulumi for their environment.

    Close the loop between customers, product, and engineering teams, championing the product to the customer, and bringing their requirements to the roadmap.

    Listen and respond; build and advise on the best technical choices for our customers.

    Be challenged, solve new problems, teach about our technologies, and figuring out new, better ways to delight our customers.


    To Be Successful In This Role, You Have:

    Pre- or Post- Sales experience using devops products with enterprise customers.

    Comfort coding in TypeScript, JavaScript, Python, or Go. Hands-on development work for customer implementations is required.

    A commitment to user experience, customer optimization and successful implementation of new products.

    Deep familiarity with core web technologies, Open Source technologies, and public cloud platforms.

    Exceptional customer management, presentation and communication skills.

    BS degree in Computer Science, or equivalent practical experience.
