      Build intelligent tools that help communities adapt to the impacts of climate change.

      Hi! We're Forerunner.

      We believe that adaptation is a necessity, not a luxury, and all communities should have access to powerful software that helps them plan for the future. The challenge of climate change is complex — it implicates how municipalities plan, manage capital, and communicate to both residents and higher levels of government. Forerunner helps local communities do these things better by empowering them to access, understand, and mobilize local-level flood risk data at scale. Our software is built to be easy-to-use, so that the planners and floodplain managers preparing for our future can focus on the important stuff.

      Currently, we're working with a handful of communities, including the City of New Orleans and Pinellas County, FL. Our engineering team is hard at work on projects that involve extracting information from permits, managing complex datasets, and incorporating geospatial data. Our mission is ambitious, and we have a significant amount of work ahead. As our newest team member, you'll be joining us at a crucial time when you'll have a real impact on our direction and our partner municipalities' success.

      About the position:

      We're looking for a senior full-stack engineer with 5+ years of experience to join us. We would love to hear from you if you're interested in what we do and have a proven track record of leading mid- to large-scale technical initiatives. In general, you might be a good fit if you:

      • Have partial, or full, familiarity with our technical stack: Node, GraphQL, React, Postgres + PostGIS, Heroku. If not, we would like you to be confident in your ability to ramp up quickly.

      • Are comfortable with a high degree of ambiguity. Since we are constantly learning a lot from our partners, we are looking for someone who has a bias toward action and can balance the challenging trade-off between quality and speed.

      • Consider yourself to be a great communicator. We're a small team working remotely, which requires us to be prompt and clear with written and spoken communication.

      Our team has a lot to offer.

      Forerunner is a seed-stage company with an interdisciplinary team. We are motivated by seemingly intractable problems and work hard to support one another.

      • We're mission driven. Our mission orients our business strategy and pushes us to work with a sense of urgency. We’re in the weeds — our entire team spends time engaging with our partners in the field to better understand the real-world challenges they face.

      • We're a small team. We're currently 4 people — you will be the 5th. As a member of our growing team, you will quickly become an invaluable part of our organization and have a meaningful impact on our business and technical direction. We welcome unique perspectives and backgrounds. Your opinion matters and we hope you'll share it.

      • We're remote. While many of us are based in NYC, we're happy to have you work where you are happiest and most productive. We offer schedule flexibility and ask for accountability in return.

      • We want you to be happy and healthy. Forerunner offers competitive compensation, health/vision/dental coverage (we pay 70%), and commuter benefits. We also have a quarterly wellness reimbursement so that you can have flexibility in defining what health means to you.

      We look forward to meeting you. To apply or ask questions, shoot us a message at [email protected]!

    • Syncro is a small team crafting applications helping small businesses be more successful. Our software does job tracking, marketing, invoicing, integrates tons of online tools — and is awesome. We are open to taking risks with technology, we use ember/react/kubernetes/elixr, and are generally open to exciting fun new stuff!

      We’re building a company that has fun inventing. We go fast, and our customers love us. Thousands of repair shops and IT Professionals all over the world rely on our platform for their entire business operations. We are different – we really do care, the founders are writing this ad and looking at the resumes – not a recruiter or HR department.

      We are using heroku with 50+ dynos, our platform consists of a number of rails apps and integrations to other platforms. We’re building a huge inventory system to rival any out there, we’ve built a “remote machine management” platform with an open API, we’re doing it all…

      If this sounds like the kind of team you want to be part of, we want to hear from you. Do you play around with new stuff for fun? Do you hear about a problem and just obsessed building a web app to solve it? If this sounds like your kind of play – we might be a great fit. 🙂


      – Salaried position designed to grow with the company (seriously, try us).

      – We want this to be your dream job – but we need your help (tell us how).

      – We will advance your career like nobody else — stay with us for the long haul and we’ll keep you challenged, learning, passionate, and growing.

      – Results-oriented: Keep having fun and shipping code and you can design your day.

      – We are currently a dispersed team working from home.

      – We offer comprehensive health, vision, and dental coverage and 401(k).

      What You'll Be Doing:

      – Create and manage infrastructure in our multiple cloud providers systems like Heroku, Kubernetes on Google Cloud, AWS, Azure, etc. (we use all of them)

      – Building and maintaining tools, solutions and microservices.

      – Actively troubleshoot any issues that arise during testing and production, catching and solving issues before launch.

      – Test our system integrity, implemented designs, application developments and other processes related to infrastructure, making improvements as needed.

      – Update our processes and design new processes as needed.

      – Deploy product updates as required while implementing integrations when they arise.

      – Specifying, documenting and developing new product features, and writing automating scripts.

      – Work with CI tools, and source control such as GIT

      – If you also enjoy product development you can probably help out on the feature work too!

      What We're Looking For:

      -A few years of running operations for web applications

      -A few years of Ruby on Rails a major plus

      -No specific education necessary. (really)

      -Excellent communication skills – verbal, written and electronic.

      -You care — which means sometimes putting yourself out there for a customer experiencing pain.

      -Ability to multi-task in a fast paced environment.

      -You’re kind and wily (in a good way).

      How to Get Hired by Us:

      Write to us about a recent time or two that you caused a production outage, what the root cause was, and what you learned from it.

      For example; Troy our Founder shipped a typo in a class name in the early days and those are annoying because they might be easily missed in Development environment but then production blows up. This led to a more robust CI+Staging step than we had prior.

      Just demonstrate that you are an individual, you have a personality, you enjoy life, and you enjoy good work. And please include a resume. 🙂

      Syncro is an equal opportunity employer. We value diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment where all employees can thrive and do their best work, free from discrimination and harassment.

      Pay: DOE. Let’s Talk.

    • About Almanac

      Almanac’s mission is to democratize access to 21st century skills, insights, and tools so that no one is limited by knowledge in pursuit of their potential.

      Through our own experiences, we’ve seen professionals at digital businesses waste too much time trying to find answers they can trust that help them do their jobs better. We believe this problem isn’t rooted in a lack of knowledge or expertise in the world, but in the deficiencies of tools we rely on to access, share, and improve how work gets done.

      To make opportunity available to everyone, we’re building a knowledge platform that technology professionals can trust for documenting, distributing, and collaborating on how they work. We replace tools like Confluence and Google Docs to help individuals quickly access knowledge within and across companies that they can trust deeply.
