Akselos (Software Engineer, Boston or REMOTE)


Akselos provides an advanced cloud-based engineering simulation platform for "accelerated Finite Element Analysis" based on over 10 years of award-winning research at MIT. This platform enables engineers to perform detailed, fully-3D analysis of large-scale complex systems in seconds, which eliminates a major pain point across a wide range of engineering disciplines.

We currently have major engineering firms from the mining and power systems industries as customers. Our software has been used by over 7000 students in an engineering course on edX. Also, we were recently featured on the Google Cloud Platform blog: http://googlecloudplatform.blogspot.ca/2014/12/mitxs-edx-cou...

We have offices in Boston, Lausanne and Ho Chi Minh City. Working remotely is a possibility.


Send job inquiries to: jobs@akselos.com (or contact me directly at david.knezevic@akselos.com)

We're looking for a Software Engineer to assist with our GUI development. The GUI is written in Python (Qt bindings) and allows users to create 3D models, send simulation requests to our cloud-based back-end and then render the results locally. For more info about the GUI see:

Weft - http://weft.io - Cambridge/Boston, MA (office is in central sq.)

   ====== What we do =========
We're the single source of truth in logistics -- we track every boat on the water, every plane in the sky, and every truck on the ground so that we can know everything that's going on in the logistics world. We do a lot of analysis and optimization, too. We’re working in the largest, least sexy, most invisible industry in the world — 90% of everything has been on a ship at one point in time.

The problem -> Lots of inefficiencies in the supply chain! One of our customers spends $400mm/year shipping empty containers, another spends $80mm/year on late fees. Lots to optimize!

How we fix it -> We track everything in the supply chain and make predictions and recommendations as to what our customers should do!

   ===== How we do it ========
Web/data stack -> clojure + postgres/cassandra/redis/rabbit + ruby on rails + hadoop/EMR (we’re a SOA shop)

Mobile -> iOS, android, mobile web

Algorithms -> a dizzying mixture of oldschool and newschool techniques ;-)

   ====== And the rest =======
We've got some very interesting partners and customers (ranging from CPG companies and telcos to enterprise software providers to regional and international logistics companies). We also have some top tier investors (a16z, atlas)!

Looking for:

- A growth hacker

- Data science folks

- Data engineering folks

- Generalists

- Master front-end devs

If this sounds interesting, please shoot us an email at mike@weft.io!

Northeastern University (CCIS) | Boston | Software Engineer

The programmer will help deploy a scalable, robust distributed system called Reverse Traceroute.[1] This project has received funding both from industry and the National Science Foundation, as well as winning research awards.

While the standard traceroute tool is popular for Internet troubleshooting and diagnostics, it only measures the path to the destination, not the path back, leaving network operators blind to half their route. Reverse traceroute addresses this limitation, measuring Internet paths from arbitrary destination hosts toward a given source host.

The prototype and subsequent iterations of the system were sufficient for small-scale experiments but not terribly robust or scalable. The programmer will design a new implementation that is efficient, scalable and self-managing to ensure high availability. This system will also provide a public API that allows the community of researchers, operators and other practitioners to issue measurements and receive results.

This position is in a unique research environment, where the programmer will work on new and interesting problems and advance the state of the art. This is a full-time position with benefits and salary competitive with industry. Apply here: https://neu.peopleadmin.com/postings/32933

indico -- http://indico.io Boston, MA

We are indico, a Boston startup making productivity tools for data scientists. We're looking to democratize data science and bring the next generation of machine learning to everyone.

Full Stack Developer: Life moves fast in the world of startups, so we're looking for someone accustomed to filling technical gaps and rapidly moving between projects. Flexibility is a must. Our tech stack is primarily python/javascript, so familiarity with those languages is recommended.

Backend Engineer: We're looking for a backend engineer with experience building reliable distributed systems to deal with large amounts of traffic. An ideal candidate would have a love for software architecture, a knack for building high throughput, high availability APIs, and experience with python. Dev-ops experience is also a huge plus.

Data Engineer: A high quality dataset is arguably even more important than a bleeding-edge machine learning model. We're looking for a scrappy developer who is comfortable with data preprocessing, data normalization, and data collection (web scraping, mechanical turk, etc.).

Front End Developer: We're looking for a developer with design sense to build a beautiful, functional web interface for indico. An ideal candidate would have a deep appreciation for user experience, dream in javascript/coffeescript, and know the ins and outs of clean HTML/CSS layout.

Technical Writer: Machine learning is a highly technical field, and we're looking for someone to help us reach out to the broader community of developers and data scientists. Responsibilities include writing excellent tutorials, documentation, and blog articles that help tell our story to the world. Although prior data science experience is not required, passion to learn more about the field is a must.

Interested? Send an email to contact@indico.io.

Candidates should be able to present relevant work experience either through previous work (employed, freelance, PhD studies, Post-Doc etc..) or extra-curricular work / open source contributions.

  == About the Software Engineer in Mobile position:
We are looking for a strong, hands-on, detail-oriented coder with experience in mobile development (Android or iOS), to join front-end and tools development. Practical skill and programming experience are preferred over academic achievements for this role. Required language skills are Java and C++. Experience in iOS technologies (Objective-C, Swift, Metal), bash, Python, Javascript and web-development are a plus (but not required). A background in Computer Vision and Graphics is not required, however the ability and interest to learn about them is. Also, candidates should have the ability to discuss, design and implement UI.
