Vistar Media | Full Time | Onsite (Philadelphia, PA)

We're an advertising tech company focusing on geotemporal data analysis. We'd love to hire engineers with experience in high-performance distributed server development or large-scale JS applications.


We're a mature startup with an established, well-tested codebase, but we aren't afraid to shake things up. We want to solve our problems with the right tools, whether they’re cutting-edge, or tried-and-true.

Some of those tools:

  PostgreSQL / PostGIS
  EC2, SQS, DynamoDB
  React and Flux
Some nice-to-haves:

  * Have coded a non-trivial system soup to nuts. CSS, persistence, deployment, et cetera
  * Understand Linux to a degree where you’d be comfortable admin’ing a fleet of boxes
  * Be able to design and implement a large, efficient codebase
  * Be able to ballpark the computational complexity of a snippet of code
  * Be able to both identify and implement a practical test suite

Way to Health, University of Pennsylvania Health System | Philadelphia, PA | Full-time | Onsite | www.waytohealth.org

Chronic illness and the decisions people make and actions they take everyday – from their activity level to taking medications or smoking – drive the vast majority of the $3 Trillion in US healthcare costs. Our team has achieved breakthrough results in changing the behaviors that determine health outcomes, such as doubling adherence to medications that keep people healthy and out of the hospital, establishing new insights into patient engagement.

These results were enabled by the Way To Health platform, a unique technology asset now poised to move beyond research into broader clinical applications. The role we’re looking to fill is critical to expanding our impact. We need someone who can not only work with our team of internationally recognized thought leaders to identify and implement functionality and designs making interventions more effective, but also has the ability to evolve Way to Health into a scalable clinical platform that can be deployed efficiently in larger populations.

This role also affords the right candidate a great deal of autonomy in both how you do your work and in crafting a vision for the technology. We’re looking for team members who love problem solving and finding better ways to get things done.

Email me at mkopinsky@waytohealth.org for more info.

Azavea - Philadelphia, PA - Full Time On-site: OPERATIONS ENGINEER


Azavea is based in Philadelphia, and we are looking to grow our Operations team to support new cloud computing operations capacity. Azavea both builds custom web apps and SaaS in several civic domains, including: climate change, urban ecosystem management, public safety, watersheds, and elections.

We’re looking for an Operations Engineer who enjoys the intricacies of deploying and scaling an application as much as building it. We are looking for a person that is passionate about building and operating software that will have a positive impact –someone interested in public service, but not necessarily in working for a government or a non-profit organization, and someone who enjoys working in a variety of technology environments.

You should...

- Know your way around Linux systems.

- Experience architecting solutions based on Amazon Web Services, Rackspace or Google Compute Engine.

- Demonstrate experience with automated deployment, continuous integration, and source control.

- Know how to build and support scalable web applications in a variety of languages (Python, Scala, Go).

- Demonstrate familiarity with networking and security concepts.

- Be interested in working with a small, collaborative team on meaningful projects.

- Get excited about a diversity of both projects and technologies.

CLVmetrics |Lead Front-End Engineer - Early Employee | Philadelphia, PA w/ NYC 2016 | Onsite w/ some Remote

CLVmetrics (http://www.clvmetrics.com) is a technology company with a simple but important belief: companies should treat their customers differently based on each customer’s lifetime value (CLV) to the business.

Our goal is to enable firms to do so by providing access to the cutting-edge statistical models of co-founder Wharton Professor Peter Fader that forecast customer behavior far into the future.

To accomplish this goal and allow companies to implement customer-centric marketing strategies, our world-class team of statisticians, marketers, and engineers is building an enterprise-grade cloud-based analytics suite to commercialize our own award-winning research on consumer behavior, marketing theory, and statistics.

Our team has the technical expertise across stack to implement our models at scale, and we are looking to add an expert front-end developer to the team to help us design and develop a stunning front-end that will allow our customers to discover novel insights about their customers, develop marketing interventions around CLV, and track the results of those actions.

Candidates should be comfortable with a major JS framework such as React/Angular and a visualization library such as d3. Candidates should also have a strong sense for UI/UX.

The key issues that you will face are:

-Presenting a new metric: Predictive CLV is a new metric that has never been accessible before. The success of its penetration depends critically on effective communication to our clients.

-Visualization of massive data sets: We need to present output from millions of customers and billions of transactions in an elegant and simple-to-understand fashion.

-Design for different stakeholders: We need dashboards and visualizations appropriate for a range of audiences from performance marketers to the C-suite.

If these engineering challenges excite you, please contact justin@clvmetrics.com.
