    • Willingness to understand the architecture of multiple systems, and being able to make updates to them independently.
    • Have the ability to lead projects from start to finish, working cross functionally to gather requirements, plan work, and helping to steer development until launch.
    • Not required, but some previous exposure to Javascript and/or Rails applications, demonstrating an understanding of customer facing dependencies within a broader distributed system is a nice to have.
    • Experience with consuming and processing messages from Kafka or similar service.

    Respondent is a two-sided marketplace that connects market and usability researchers with the highest quality research participants in the world. 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!

    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.

Our culture is well-defined and our work environment is pretty informal. While we take our jobs seriously, we don’t take ourselves so seriously. We believe in empowerment, autonomy, and flexibility – so you get to determine how you work and where you work. And if/when you want a vacation, you can work with your team to determine how much and how long. We focus on results. We believe culture isn’t about how many foosball or ping pong tables you have. It’s about how you support each other and win together. So at Kapost we actively work to accelerate your career. On your first day we ask you to envision your last day.

Our offices are on the famed Pearl St Mall in downtown in Boulder, CO. You’ll know Boulder to be America’s happiest, fittest, foodiest town filled with more than 300 days of sunshine. We’re brimming with bike paths that transport you all around town and running/biking paths that are a few blocks from the office for the morning, noon or evening fun. If you don’t live in/near Boulder then you’ll also be happy to know that the school systems are among the top in the state, cost of living is accessible, commutes range from the “I can’t believe I just rode my bike 5 minutes to work” to “wow, that 15 minute cross-town traffic was just a bear today” commutes, and we are a short drive from Denver. Our offices are in walking distance to top restaurants, offering great food and after-work fun. What could be better?!

    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.

  • 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!

    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.

    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:

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

    Implementing additional infrastructure to support transactions for more types of data.

    Improving the latency and resource usage of our transaction processes.

    Qualifications

    Have experience in a typed functional language such as Scala or F#, or significant experience in their non-functional equivalents (Java, C#) with an interest in Scala.

    Have experience working with non-trivial quantities of data. As of this writing, our ingestion pipelines are handling something on the order of 500GB .snappy.parquet files per day. Prior work with Spark would be ideal, but experience with similar MapReduce-based technologies would also be helpful.

    Have experience operating in a cloud environment like Amazon Web Services, Google Compute Engine, or similar.

    Be able to work across all aspects of back end systems, from application code to SQL to systems administration.

    Not be afraid of contributing to the entire stack (from the UI to Devops) when the need arises.

    Skills

    Scala or other typed functional languages

    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.

    Narrative's Acquire platform gives businesses access to massive amounts of raw data across many suppliers. With full transparency, companies know exactly what they’re getting and which suppliers it came from.

    Narrative's Distribute platform standardizes and deduplicates data, giving companies instant demand for their data and new, turn-key revenue streams.

    On top of that, everything is automated, centrally managed with actionable analytics and aligns with GDPR compliance.

    In a world where raw data is fueling businesses, Narrative is the platform that powers the data economy.

    We’re a rapidly growing startup transforming the way enterprises engage their customers when communicating over the phone. Some things that make us different include:

    A team of founders. Most of us have either been founders or ‘first hire’ at startups that have been acquired or gone public. We know and love building products that create big companies.

    We’re not your typical CRUD app. Our software runs across many different platforms (web/chrome/iOS/Android) and connects to a core communications infrastructure that we’ve built from scratch.

    We love our customers. Whether it’s building resources, going on-site or staying up late with them on launch day, we go above and beyond to make them successful.
