  • 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.

    Sample projects

      • Create tools and interfaces for customers to integrate our service more tightly with their own recruiting workflow (whether that's in their browser, their inbox, or via our own interface that let's them quickly find and add candidates to their process).
      • 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.
      • Give customers visibility into, and control over, the entire product and recruiting process -- it currently operates mostly as a black box, and exposing the options already present in the system will make customers feel more in control and even happier about the product experience.

    Requirements

      • 3+ years of back end software engineering experience.
      • Strong software engineering skills.
      • Understand both the value of shipping quickly and of software craftsmanship, and have the judgment to know when to apply each.

    Job Description

    We’re looking to hire a backend developer to join our team working on PSPDFKit for Web. We are building a modern PDF SDK with technologies like Elixir, React, PostgreSQL, Docker, and WebAssembly. Your role as a backend developer will be to implement new features, improve the reliance of our server component, and work on scalability problems in a well-tested Elixir application.


    You Will:

    Work as part of a small, driven team that builds new features and fixes existing issues on a steady schedule.

    Make architectural decisions that will impact thousands of products for years.

    Write readable and well-documented code with meaningful tests so that we can ship new releases often and without fear.

    Take the time to do things correctly instead of coming up with quick fixes.

    Collaborate with the entire company (Android, iOS, Windows, Core, Support, Design, Marketing, and Sales) using Slack, GitHub, and Zoom.

    Support our customers in integrating our products, help them debug and fix issues, and collaborate with them to understand their requirements for our products.

    You Should:

    Be familiar with or have an interest in learning Elixir and its ecosystem of tools and packages.

    Have a high-level understanding of the web technology stack (e.g. HTTP, WebSockets, cookies, proxies, and caching).

    Have a strong interest in scaling PostgreSQL or a similar RDBMS, as well as understand the importance of consistency and efficiency when designing the data model for an application.

    Be eager to learn more about systems design, highly concurrent applications, immutable data, and functional programming models.

    Have good communication skills and enjoy working on a passionate team.

    Have a pragmatic approach to problem solving.

    Have a good command of English for writing documentation and occasional blog posts.

    Understand the challenges of working on a distributed team.

    Please note that you can be a perfect fit even if not everything we’ve outlined above applies to you. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.


    We Offer:

    The ability to work remotely and set your own schedule.

    A family-friendly work environment.

    Room for personal and professional development by encouraging learning and experimenting.

    Two planned company events during the year (for example, in Croatia, Italy, Spain, Greece, and Vienna).

    A motivated team that enables you to do your best work.

    A generous vacation policy of five weeks, plus an additional allowance for conferences.

    An Application Should Include:

    A writeup explaining who you are as a programmer. We are especially interested in knowing how you started, what projects you have loved (or not loved) working on, what motivates you, and what surprising things you’ve learned since you began programming.

    A piece of code (it doesn’t have to be your own) that does something you find interesting, and an explanation why.

    Links to online profiles you use (e.g. GitHub, Twitter).

    A description of your work history (such as a resume, LinkedIn profile, or prose).

    Your Day at PSPDFKit

    Your day at PSPDFKit starts with an asynchronous today message in our team’s Slack channel, where you outline your goals for the day so that everyone on the team knows what everyone else is working on. All our regular company meetings occur on the same day each week, so most of the time you’ll be able to focus on your assigned tasks without interruptions.

    You’ll work on adding features to our Elixir-based server product and improving the stability of our existing applications together with our customers. We strongly believe in code quality over quantity, which is why new changes undergo a proposal phase where everyone on the team is invited to collaborate. We write unit, integration, and end-to-end tests and do peer reviews for every change.

    Beyond working on features and bug fixes, we also take time to help you improve upon your personal goals (through regular 1on1s and mentoring). Our remote-first focus allows you to set up working hours that best fit your daily routine. You can read more about our onboarding period here.

  • 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. : )

    Ruby on Rails powers a lot of our infrastructure, and we’re always looking for talented Rails developers to help us reach the next level. By joining our team, you’ll get the opportunity to work on many of our various Rails projects with a team of highly skilled Rails experts from around the world. At Toptal, we push the boundaries on what’s possible with Rails every single day, and we’d love for you to help us get even further. The bulk of the work we do on a daily basis is pure back-end development, but occasionally some new UI has to be wired up, so some front-end skills on your part certainly won’t hurt. We don’t cut corners, and we don’t make compromises—we create beautifully architected Rails apps that are polished, fast, well-tested, and a joy to use. This is a remote position that can be done from anywhere. Responsibilities:
    • Design, build, and maintain efficient, reusable, and reliable Ruby code.
    • Integrate user-facing elements developed by front-end developers with server-side logic.
    • Identify bottlenecks and bugs and devise elegant solutions.
    • Make strategic technical decisions related to new products and functionality.
    • Help maintain code quality.
    • Onboard and mentor new team members.
    Requirements:
    • You must have 3+ years of web development experience—preference given to candidates who have experience with large applications of some scale.
    • You must have a solid grasp of object-oriented programming, automated software testing, databases, development, and testing methodologies.
    • You must have experience developing a web framework—with Ruby on Rails a plus.
    • Be interested in working across the software stack (Ruby on Rails, JavaScript/CoffeeScript, PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch).
    • Be excited about deploying to production multiple times a day and collaborating daily with your team and other groups while working via a distributed model.
    • Take smart risks and champion new ideas.
    • Be comfortable with iterative and incremental development.
    • Be willing to help your teammates, share your knowledge with them, and learn from them.
    • Be open to receiving feedback.
    • You must be a world-class individual contributor to thrive at Toptal. You will not be here just to tell other people what to do.
     
  • NAVIS is looking for a creative, motivated, full stack Senior Software Developer to join us as a critical member of our Engineering Team. (This position will be virtual / remote from the Portland, OR area).

    This is a full SDLC development position.  The Software Developer must be willing to take on all aspects of the development process, and be ready to support applications in production environments. He/she will be asked to test code sets, document software, and implement products and related solutions.  Expert knowledge of design patterns and software development best practices must be shown at all times.  

    The Software Developer will be tasked with analyzing, identifying, and solving highly-complex issues related to software development and related technologies.  As needed, this person may be involved in the mentoring of more junior-level developers on the technical aspects of our products, technology, and related software tools.  This developer needs to have a willingness to do whatever it takes to make the products and the company successful.
