London UK - Osper - http://osper.com

We provide a real prepaid debit card for young people, aged 8-18, so they can make independent decisions with money: online, in shops, at cash machines, & abroad. Thousands of kids have already signed up to our service.

But we not only help young people buy Legos and save for bicycles - we are building an awesome technology team that eliminates legacy code, keeps the bug rate tiny, and stays small & joyful. We are doing this by adopting techniques like pair programming, test-driven development, continuous deployment, and microservices. You can read more about our plan to be awesome on our tech blog http://tech.osper.io. We want to meet and work with smart technical folks of all varieties - from server-side devs to sysadmins, mobile coders to testers, security analysts to data crunchers - but especially front-end experts who like mobile app development of any kind (we happen to use PhoneGap/Cordova but don't expect candidates to know this framework).

We are willing to arrange relocation to London for the right candidate. Sorry, we're not ready to take on remote team members at this stage.

OpenSignal - London, UK (Full time, permanent) At OpenSignal we're using mobile apps to tap into the smart phones we're all carrying around with us to build up global crowdsourced sensor networks. Our first sensor network is for wireless signal [1] where we are building a global database on the coverage and performance of wireless networks (both mobile + WiFi) on a scale that has never before been possible. Our second sensor network is WeatherSignal [2], which uses the barometers, thermometers and hygrometers on smart phones to crowdsource weather data and we have already published a scientific paper [3] showing the potential of this approach. If the concept of crowdsourced sensor networks appeals to you too then please get in touch. We are hiring for all manner of different roles right not (backend, frontend, UX/UI & data science) but most of all we are just looking for smart, like minded people rather than people with specific, existing skills. We also recently raised our $4million series A [4] from Qualcomm Ventures, O'Reilly Alphatech Ventures & Passion Capital so are growing fast.

Full-stack Software Engineer - Easel TV - local in Central London, UK

Easel TV's philosophy is that the television is special; it's not just another device that's now available with a web browser, it has a unique context in our homes. We seek to exploit that special role by delivering a relevant and potentially personalised televisual experience from our cloud-based software-as-a-service platform, Suggested TV. Whilst we use web technologies, the user experience that we deliver is more like a TV channel than a web site or a mobile app. We provide our clients with editorial tools to allow them to control the user experience and powerful analytics to help guide those choices.

We have been around for over 5 years now however it still feels a lot like a start-up (and in many ways it is). From a technical point of view, there's a big roadmap of exciting and challenging work ahead of us.

Our tech: - Scala, Play Framework 2, Java, Spring MVC, EmberJS - Neo4J, SQL Databases - Git, BitBucket, Jira, HipChat, Jenkins - Cloud infrastructure on AWS and Azure

Skills & Requirements: - You have solid Java skills and some functional programming experience, preferably with Scala. - You are a great web developer.  - You are familiar with agile development and continuous deployment methodologies.  - You have experience and the scars to prove it. - You are a great team player. - You always feel responsible and want to deliver the best you can.

If this sounds interesting, please contact me at recruit@easeltv.com

Jane Street - New York City, London, Hong Kong - Software Developer (Functinoal Programming) INTERN / VISA

Jane Street is a technology-focused proprietary trading firm. We are looking to hire great software developers with an interest in functional programming. OCaml, a statically typed functional programming with similarities to Haskell, Erlang, F# and SML, is our language of choice. We’ve got the largest team of OCaml developers in any industrial setting, and probably the world’s largest OCaml codebase. We use OCaml for running our entire business, supporting everything from research to systems administration to trading systems. If you’re interested in seeing how functional programming plays out in the real world, there’s no better place. The atmosphere is informal and intellectual. There is a focus on education, and people learn about software and trading, both through formal classes and on the job. The work is challenging, and you get to see the practical impact of your efforts in quick and dramatic terms. Jane Street is also small enough that people have the freedom to get involved in many different areas of the business. Compensation is highly competitive, and there’s a lot of room for growth.

You can learn more about Jane Street and our technology from our main site, janestreet.com. You can also look at a a talk given at CMU about why Jane Street uses functional programming (http://ocaml.janestreet.com/?q=node/61) and our programming blog (http://ocaml.janestreet.com)
