      Yesterday

      We didn’t create Bold Penguin because commercial insurance is broken. It isn’t. But as the world has gotten more connected and digitized, commercial insurance lags behind—creating a fragmented landscape where businesses, agents, and insurance companies struggle to interact in a smooth and easy way. That’s why we’ve built a highly efficient exchange that cuts the friction out of commercial insurance by connecting everyone to the right quote in record time.

      Powering the world of insurance is no small feat, so we’ve brought on a team that's not only incredibly talented but also passionate about our potential to upgrade the entire industry. As more and more companies big and small depend on our technology to operate in the commercial insurance space, we’ll need the best talent all around to support our growth.

      Are you looking for a new adventure with a positive impact?

      At Learnlife we are on the mission to build an open ecosystem for a new lifelong learning paradigm to positively change education worldwide. We empower learners, educators, schools, and governments through a new learner-centered paradigm that focuses on purpose-inspired and personal learning.

      A little bit about us

      Learnlife is based in Barcelona, where we also have opened our first Learning HUB (1200m2 @ Enrique Granados 7). We are an educational startup in the early phase with a team of thirty people in total and with six people working full-time on the digital part of the ecosystem we are building.

      Last year, we had our first seed investment round, which we secured during the June 2019 when we raised €3,1m in partnership with 19 entrepreneurial supporters from 11 countries. The funding round was led by BPO Capital, a vehicle of Benjamin Otto (Germany), an active shareholder of the Otto Group and co-founder of About You.

      We believe in empowered and autonomous teams, positive relationships, empathetic collaboration, growth through adventure, fair communities, and a culture of constructive transparency and honesty.

      Who we are looking for

      We’re looking for a senior software engineer to join our growing team. As someone coming into such a pivotal role in the company, you will influence how our products look, work, behave and feel over the coming years.

      You should send us an application if you:

      • Are searching for a startup-like environment with solid funding.

      • Have experience working on remote and in the ideal case also in the startup environment. 

      • Are looking for a full-stack senior software engineering role, and you’ve spent in the role already several years.

      • Have strong skills in Javascript and another backend programming language (Ruby & Ruby on Rails is a big plus).

      • Are able to step outside your role description and do what is needed in order to help the team succeed. 

      • Love technology and are hungry to learn.

      • Love to collaborate in a cross-functional team.

      • Are a great communicator (English).

      • Could solve problems independently. 

      • Are based in Europe or Brazil.

      • Having an active profile on Github with several open-source contributions under your belt isn’t required, but it is a big plus.

      Our tech stack:

      • Ruby on Rails, Javascript

      • PostgreSQL, MongoDB

      • Nginx, Unicorn, AWS

      How will your working day look like

      You will start your day when you want in the morning and decide for yourself where you’re going to work. The whole team usually work remotely, but there are certain periods when we gladly go to our office in Ostrava, Czech Republic or Barcelona, Spain. 

      First thing in the morning, we have an asynchronous stand-up via Basecamp.

      We usually summarize the previous day’s issues as well as tasks for the current day at the stand-up. 

      Everyone then works on their assignments during the day, and any other potential communication is carried on via Basecamp/Github/Calls. Nobody checks anybody as for when and how they work – only the results are important. 

      During the day and at the end of it, we commit the work in a standard way to Github where another developer always performs code review for you after you have completed a task.

      Currently, we have 4-weeks long development cycles. The first week of the cycle is from a big part focused on planning and is, therefore, more meeting heavy than other weeks.

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. 🙂

      Highlights:

      – 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.

      More info on Doximity

      We’re thrilled to be named the Fastest Growing Company in the Bay Area, and one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies. Joining Doximity means being part of an incredibly talented and humble team. We work on amazing products that over 70% of US doctors (and over one million healthcare professionals) use to make their busy lives a little easier. We’re driven by the goal of improving inefficiencies in our $3.5 trillion U.S. healthcare system and love creating technology that has a real, meaningful impact on people’s lives. To learn more about our team, culture, and users, check out our careers page, company blog, and engineering blog. We’re growing steadily, and there’s plenty of opportunity for you to make an impact.

      Doximity is proud to be an equal opportunity employer, and committed to providing employment opportunities regardless of race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding, age, sexual orientation, military or veteran status, or any other protected classification. We also consider qualified applicants with criminal histories, consistent with applicable federal, state and local law.

    • Help fix the legal industry!

      The way legal paperwork gets done is filled with inefficiencies, which leads to ridiculously high legal fees. We fix this by building software that automates and streamlines the process.

      We're profitable and growing sustainably. We're the most popular way for high-growth technology startups to form, and are also used by tons of top-tier startups for hiring and fundraising. Our software is more advanced than any other online legal service. We've invested a lot in architecture, maintainability, and testing, giving us a significant advantage as we build out functionality that founders and attorneys can currently only dream of.

      We're a quiet leader in the legal technology space — if you are interested in changing the legal industry, this is arguably the best place to be.

      Notes on our stack and process:
      • Our backend is mostly in Ruby on Rails, with very small amounts of Scala and Go as well.
      • Our front-end is mostly in Ember.
      • We use CI extensively for linting, tests, visual diffs, and deployment.
      • We're not religious about any particular technology — we believe in using the right tool for a given problem.

      This is a great fit if you want to work:
      • ... on a complex product, with a ton of engineering challenges
      • ... in a company that strongly values good software development practices
      • ... at a product-driven company bringing an archaic industry into the future
      • ... on a beloved product with a lot of usage and visibility in the startup community
      • ... with bright people who are extremely passionate about their work
      • ... where you'll be a key early software engineer
      • ... at a financially sound company that is not dependent on venture capital financing

      You must have:
      • An inability to write anything but clean, maintainable code.
      • A strong aversion to code without test coverage.
      • Deep experience with building, maintaining, and optimizing large-scale, production Ruby on Rails applications
      • Significant experience building software as part of a team with strong development practices
      • Very strong written communication skills
      Experience with Ember is a huge bonus, but not mandatory.

      This position can be either co-located or remote (completely up to you). If you're co-located, you can have your own office (if you want). We're located in Emeryville, California — one shuttle stop away from BART and very close to the freeway.

      We are happy to support an H-1B visa application after 2 years of employment, if desired. We are only looking directly for full-time employees - we are absolutely not interested in agencies, contractors, or recruiters.

      San Francisco or remote

      AZ, CA, DC, FL, MO, NJ, NY, OH, OR, TX, WA

      Scribd
      /skribbed/ (n).
      1. a tech company changing the way the world reads
      2. a membership that gives users access to the world’s largest online library of books, audiobooks, sheet music, news, and magazines

      We value trying new things, craftsmanship, being an open book, and the people that make our team great.
      Join us and build something meaningful.

      Our team
      The Content Engineering team is broadly responsible for catalog management and content metadata at Scribd. Supplying supplementary data to ebook and audiobook pages? That's us. Ensuring that all user-uploaded documents are useful, accessible, and legally available? That's us. Creating pipelines that build clean and well-structured data for Search, Recommendations, and Data Science to build amazing features from? That's us. Analyzing user reading activity and translating them into publisher payouts? That's us. We're a spoke within Scribd, connecting many engineering, product, and publisher-focused teams through data.

      The majority of the team is based in San Francisco but there's a strong and growing remote contingent as well (much like Scribd overall). We use tools that emphasize asynchronous communication (Slack, Gitlab, Jira, Google Docs) and are ready and able to jump on a video call when text doesn't cut it. Regardless of the medium, solid communication skills are a must. We operate with autonomy (developers closest to the code will make the most well-informed decisions) while holding ourselves and each other accountable for using good judgement when faced with each day's unique challenges.

      Our technical work is divided between our user-facing Rails application and our offline data warehouse (where much of our processing is done on top of Spark). Many of the systems we're responsible for - document spam detection, document copyright detection, topic extraction and classification, sitemap generation, and translating user activity into publisher payouts, just to name a few - span both environments, so engineers regularly work within both. Though the tech stacks differ between environments, the engineering work in both is the same - create data pipelines to ingest, process, clean, and layout the metadata coming from publishers and other external sources, as well as create new metadata from our vast content base.

      The role
      As a Senior Backend Engineer, you've probably seen quite a bit in your career, and we want to leverage all of it. Software development will be your primary function, but we'll expect you to contribute in a number of ways, including advising on technical design, reviewing code, participating in interviews, and mentoring less experienced engineers

      When you are doing software development, you'll be doing more than just coding a ticket handed to you. You'll own the implementation, delivery, and operation of systems, end-to-end. You'll consider testability, upgradeability, scale, and observability throughout the development process. You'll regularly have one or two engineers following your lead, whose output you will be responsible for. On Content Engineering, a Senior Backend Engineer is a leader.

      If you've been a senior engineer for a while and have been more focused on architectural concerns, cross-team initiatives, and other strategic endeavors, we have a place for you as well. Just know that this is a code-heavy role

      Office or remote?
      We have a wonderful new office in San Francisco, as well as smaller offices in Toronto and New York. If you live close to one of those you'll find great people and a nice work environment.

      If you don't live near one of those offices, we'd still love to have you! Scribd is expanding its remote workforce with the goal of finding the best employees regardless of location. Being a remote employee means providing your own productive work environment. Being a remote employee means providing your own productive work environment, and everything else is pretty similar to being an office employee. We expect remote employees to have solid communication skills, good judgement, and demonstrable personal responsibility. We also expect the same from our in-office employees, so you'll be in good company.

      Nitpicky requirements
      Backend Engineers on Content Engineering typically have:
      8+ years of experience as a professional software engineer
      Experience or a strong interest in backend systems and data pipelines
      Experience working with systems at Scribd's current scale
      Bachelor’s in CS or equivalent professional experience

      We present these in order to detail the picture of what we're looking for. Of course, every engineer brings something unique to the table, and we like nothing more than finding a diamond in the rough.

      Required Questions
      What’s your favorite book that you’ve read recently?
      In one sentence, why does this role appeal to you?
      Why we work here
      • We are located in downtown San Francisco, within walking distance of Caltrain and BART
      • Health benefits: 100% employer covered Medical/Dental/Vision for regular, full-time employees
      • Generous PTO policy plus we close for the last week in December
      • 401k matching
      • Paid Parental leave
      • Monthly wellness budget and fully paid membership to our onsite fitness facility
      • Professional development: generous annual budget for our employees to attend conferences, classes, and other events
      • Three meals a day, catered from local restaurants
      • Apple laptops and any equipment you want to customize your work station
      • Free Scribd membership and a yearly reading stipend!
      • Company events that include monthly happy hours and offsites (past events include Santa Cruz, bowling, arcades, geocaching, ropes courses, etc.)

      In the meantime, check out our office and meet some of the team at https://www.scribd.com/about

      Scribd values diversity, and we make all hiring and employment decisions based on merit, qualifications, competence, talent, and contribution, not who you are by choice or circumstance. We value the people who make Scribd a great place to work and strive to create an environment where your work is supported and personhood respected.

      We are looking for an experienced Ruby on Rails Developer to join our team and help us deliver cool features, fast for a new project. Are you an experienced developer looking for a new challenge? 

      We are a remote-first company with a globally distributed team of 70. We’re proud of the way we get great work done. Our clients love working with us and we partner with them on long-term projects. Our teams are engaged and excited about our work.

      What do we offer?
      • Hard technical challenges (you won't find all the answers on Stack Overflow) where you can take ownership of the solution
      • Work as part of a talented, globally distributed, successful team
      • A productive and non-frustrating work environment from a focussed adherence to our agile/scrum processes (we really believe it helps getting good work done)
      • A great working atmosphere where you can share and learn with other smart people - on this and on other projects.
      • The best-in-class toolsets: Slack, CI/CD with Docker etc
      • Meetups in our Barcelona offices for our remote folks
      • Competitive rates
      • A long term working relationship: this project, then others.

       You'll be:

      • Working within a fast moving team (working ~11am - 8pm Central European time) of both backend and frontend engineers.
      • Building challenging business logic on top of open source Solidus.
      • Designing clean APIs and often interfacing with other legacy backend systems.
      • Solving hard business logic with elegant software design
      • Identifying bottlenecks, using tools to diagnose and refactor code for scale
      • Ensuring the robustness, performance and failure characteristics of the system.
      • Writing well tested (rspec), defect free code with CI/CD
      • Taking ownership of production applications - managing issues, releases and ensuring quality

      Good English verbal and written communication skills are essential. This is a contract position with a long term outlook (12 months+ full-time project) for the right candidate. We are looking for remote workers (most of the company is remote) or have openings based in our Barcelona office. 

       Why is it good to work with us?

      We know that big ideas and big results only happen when you have the right people, working together smartly - whether that’s across the room or across the globe.  We make the work fun and rewarding.

      Because we work on cool projects. Sure, we can list the latest set of technologies that we use, but that is a given. What's more interesting is how they are used - the design, the architecture, the approach to solving business problems. And we do that across multiple clients - each and every one we're excited to work with.

      Because we believe in constant learning and exploring - whether that’s a new skill, a new role, or a new way of seeing.  And because we've found that we learn the most when we take on new challenges as a team. We’re proud that people love working with us (and still have lives outside of work). Want to know more?

    • 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.
