We've raised funds and are currently raising a seed round, and these positions will be paid.
Our first product is a vital signs monitoring system for hospitals targeting non-critical patients. These are patients who, today, are not currently continuously monitored.
Our software stack consists of an embedded processor running C++ firmware in a medical device, an Android application for doctors and nurses, and a web application (node.js backend, React frontend) for doctors as well as patient's family members. We're using both Bluetooth Low Energy and wi-fi for communication with our device. Our cloud backend is an important part of our product.

If you have C++, Android, or Node and React experience, please apply as well - we could use more help on all of these areas.

#8 of 17Pivotla Labs | ONSITE in NYC, SF and many other locations | Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Data Scientists | Visa and relocation assistance
Pivotal Labs is a division of Pivotal Inc.
We look for aptitude over APIs. It doesn't matter wether your resumé says PHP or PhD: if you're smart, know some stuff and have empathy, we want to work with you.
Labs helps clients to become better at development. For engineering we are religiously lean and agile -- in practice that means we pair program and TDD every line of code from the outside. Our product managers are fantastic at keeping products sharply focused, our designers are masters from users to pixels. We have a growing data science practice, and some engagements include all four roles.
Our NYC office is growing fast to meet exploding demand for Labs, Cloud Foundry and Big Data Suite.
We are also hiring in all our offices, including new offices: SF, Los Angeles, Seattle, Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Toronto, London, Dublin, Berlin, Tokyo and Sydney.
We provide visa and relocation assistance. In the NYC office we have about 15 people from overseas, including Australians like me.
At the office we have free breakfast, weekly tech talks, good benefits and competitive pay. Ping pong is not mandatory, but it's popular. I think west-coast ping pong is harder to beat, but east-coast style is more entertaining to watch. The beer fridge has more IPA than I prefer but I guess that's life in paradise.
My time at Pivotal, in both Labs and CF, is the best job I've ever had -- I've learnt more here than anywhere else. Everyone is smart and fun to work with.
You can apply through our website: http://pivotal.io/careers. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to answer any questions you might have and potentially help me score one of our generous referral bonuses.
Please note that emailing me confers no particular advantage over applying directly and I might not refer you. As a consultant I can only reply to emails during non-billable hours, I hope that's OK.
I also posted an ad for Cloud Foundry: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=10311634

#16 of 17Avant | Chicago, Los Angeles | Full Time
Fast-growing personal lending startup with plenty of benefits.
#17 of 17Connexity - Camarillo, CA (Los Angeles area) | on-site | http://connexity.com
Are you interested in learning advertising tech from the inside out? (Yes, I know ad-blocking is all the rage these days. Come be part of the solutions by enabling sensible display ads.) We're looking for a savvy individual who takes their personal development seriously and seeks to make a huge impact.
You'll be working alongside a tight, driven team right in the heart of the profit center. Our division of Connexity works in online display advertising (aka "banner ads") through real time bidding, and we run 50 to 100 million impressions each day. Our total transaction volume is between 5 and 10 billion per day, and I'd bet you a burger we've served ads on nearly every site you've ever visited.
Our team is sharp and works well together. We enjoy perks such as daily paid lunch, a 9/80 schedule (to get every other Friday off) and unconstrained vacation; the culture of our team recognizes and respects the importance of your non-work life. Also, Ventura county is a pretty nice place to live/work (unless you hate temperate coastal weather). If you've got Rails or other relevant web app experience, that's a good start. More importantly, you'll be eager to learn display advertising inside and out. Attitude, ambition and sound judgement trump experience with a specific set of tools.
We're a small team within a medium-sized organization, and we work hard to keep the small-team vibe while availing ourselves of the best bits from the mother ship.
#Position 1: Rails + exposure to Scala, Hbase & Kafka
We need someone to contribute to our Ruby on Rails app. It's used to administer hundreds of advertising campaigns across hundreds of publisher sites. It's not just boring CRUD. It provides a ton of control and insight to the team that operates our clients' campaigns; it's truly the heart of our display advertising business. The business folks will know you, and you'll find that excellence will stir up a tremendous amount of appreciation for your work. This role is a great way to learn advertising tech at scale as well as other tools. In addition to Rails work, you'd get hands on experience with Redis, Hbase, PostgreSQL, R and Scala. Several on the current team started in the Rails app and have moved into other areas of interest (low-latency RTB bidder written in C, sophisticated reporting pipelines or novel optimization algorithms).
#Position 2: Data Savvy, Impeccably Responsible
We need someone to help our Data Science team operations. You'll help us maintain and activate various data-driven ad targeting. For example, a client may provide us a billion records which we need to analyze and transform into an audience segment. This isn't a software engineering position, but you'll want to be (or learn to be) pretty capable at the command line, and able to work with Python/Bash or other scripting languages. More than anything, we want someone who can maintain order among various client-facing tasks. On paper, we have a neat structured process; in reality, we need someone with sound judgement and above-average clarity of thought and word to help drive us forward. If you like combing through data in Excel, R or similar, this might be a great fit. If you've wanted the opportunity to get your hands on large amounts of data from an analysis or management perspective, please reach out to us.
