Medallia - Palo Alto, CA - http://engineering.medallia.com

Medallia is hiring engineers to build our next-generation analytics platform. World-class companies (Airbnb, Mercedes, Nordstrom to mention a few) use Medallia to create awesome customer experiences.

We are a fast-growing (70% per year), Sequoia-backed company that recently became a tech unicorn; our mission is no less than to transform the way the world's companies view and interact with their customers. We allow hundreds of thousands of employees to access, analyze and take action on large amounts of customer data in real time. We are still a small engineering team, only about 50 or so of us, thus everyone counts.

We are building the new platform based on the latest technologies and best practices: pure REST APIs, based on Swagger 2.0, on top of a state-of-the-art microservice architecture built by our awesome Systems Foundation team. Code is hosted on Github and we open source the components that are of general interest. We host hundreds of millions of records for our customers and run analytics in fractions of a second with no pre-computation thanks to our own in-memory analytics engine.

Please send me a note at kristian@medallia.com if any of the above sounds interesting to you.

Kristian Eide, Software Architect

Medallia - Palo Alto, CA - http://engineering.medallia.com

Medallia is looking to expand its mobile team. Among other positions we are looking for an iOS developer that can drive our product and code base to a totally new level.

World-class companies (Apple, Mercedes, Nordstrom to mention a few) use Medallia to create awesome customer experiences. Our platform already includes a mobile solution covering both Android and iOS users, providing them the ability to engage with customers in real-time, share aggregated data, or analyze customer feedback on-the-go.

We want to take this platform to the next stage, by increasing the social aspect of our application to make it a vital part of our client's organization, and by increasing its the personalization capabilities, so each one of our users can tailor it to their particular needs and goals. We also want to experiment on innovative ways of capturing customer experience information, and on helping companies to engage their employees on a customer oriented culture.

For that we've started playing with new frameworks and technologies such React Native, Flux and Graph QL in order to make our development more agile, extensible and simple. This is posible given that we won't need to recompile every time after a change, that we can have a server with the app's content (we don't have to wait for apples review) and that we can reuse existing javascript libraries that work great.

Please contact me at jmrodriguez@medallia.com if any of the above sounds interesting to you.

Juan Manuel Rodriguez, iOS Software Engineer.

TL;DR: ThinAir | Backend/Full-stack Developer (Python) | Palo Alto, CA | Full Time | On-site (with relocation!)

Greetings fellow HN perusers!

First off - I am not a recruiter. I'm the actual person (employee #5!) you'd be working with, and I'm looking for someone as driven and passionate about security as I am to come help us make a security product that doesn't suck.

- Who am I - I built the backend here at ThinAir, but previously I worked on Palantir's infosec team, as well as a bunch of open-source stuff (I'm the current maintainer of the Sulley Fuzzing Framework, I've contributed security fixes to ElasticSearch, as well as a few other things).

I love development and information security, so this was a natural marriage of roles for me. I get to build things I want, and change the future of data security at the same time! Groovy.

- What we do - We're ThinAir (https://thinair.com/), and we're changing the (currently awful) data security landscape. We aim to solve the problem of breaches on both the large and small scales, with a good focus on usability from all sides (end user, admins, CSOs, etc). We don't believe security products should be a game of "select 2" in the set of {real security, usability, stability}.

- What we need - We're looking for 1-2 more django peeps with decent security knowledge to come help me build out new features in our Django backend. Do you like self-documenting APIs and inception-like encrypted encryption keys? You're probably who I'm looking for. Even if you aren't exactly writing your own encryption algorithms, I still want to talk to you! Security is a mindset, not a finite set of knowledge.

- How to get in touch - I'm not going to make you submit your resume to a website. I just want to talk to you for 10-15 mins.

Email me (ryan@thinair.com) and we can arrange a time to talk - either in-person over coffee or over the phone.

Be prepared to answer one very simple question - "What was the last cool thing you worked on, and why was it cool?"

Cheers! Ryan

Our stack is

- React/Sinatra web app

- Swift 2 using MVVM on iOS

- Java/Dropwizard and Phoenix/HBase on the back end

- Java on Android

Right now, we have a small but very talented team, and we'd like to add more curious, intelligent people who are interested in solving challenging problems. interested [at] mpath dotcom

The two high-priority roles are:

1. Senior Backend Engineer - Java and Phoenix/HBase

2. Android engineer
