#1 of 5iRobot | Bedford, MA (just outside of Boston, MA) and Pasadena, CA | Full-time and INTERNS | ONSITE
At iRobot (http://www.irobot.com) we make robots that truly help people. Our robots help people save time by cleaning for them, save hassle by being remotely present for them, and save lives by putting themselves in harm's way.
We have great work-life balance (including half-day Fridays during the summer so you can spend extra time with your family on Friday afternoons) and interesting problems to solve.
We blend cutting-edge research and practical engineering to build useful and affordable robots.
We're looking for smart people who are easy to work with. You should want to help people with products you create, but a robotics background is NOT required. (I had no robotics background when I started at iRobot.)
iRobot is looking for software engineers (firmware/embedded, iOS, cloud, robotics, etc.) as well as a bunch of other roles.
Check our jobs site for all positions: http://www.irobot.com/us/Company/Careers.aspx
Email me directly if you'd like to know more: csvec followed by the at sign and then irobot.com at the end.
Please email even if you're not sure if you're a match; I'm always happy to talk to other HN'ers!
PS: We have hired people from these "Who is hiring?" posts, thanks to HN for this service/forum.
#2 of 5KPCC (Southern California Public Radio) | Sr. Mobile Developer | Los Angeles, telecommute a possibility | Full-Time
KPCC is the most listened-to public radio station in the U.S., and is trying to redefine how public service journalism can serve a diverse metropolis. KPCC's product team cares about using great tech and sharing our work; most of our projects are public on GitHub (https://github.com/SCPR/), and we open source our best work. If you're a mobile developer who loves podcasts and public radio, this is a unique opportunity to have an impact on the future of the industry.
We’re looking for a passionate mobile developer to oversee KPCC's mobile apps. You enjoy writing tests and clean, maintainable code as much as you like shipping cool new features that demonstrate great UX and attention to detail. You have experience shipping apps on either iOS or Android, and an interest in both platforms.
We're based in Pasadena, but are open to some telecommuting. If you're interested, check out our full posting here: http://kp.cc/1l3SkvE.
#3 of 5Bluebeam Software • Pasadena/Chicago/San Diego • Full Time • ONSITE
Development at Bluebeam is about solving complex challenges and expressing yourself through products that enable nearly a million technical professionals across the world to collaborate without limits.
It's about pushing the boundaries of what software can and should be, to constantly develop ways to make digital collaboration faster, smarter and more intuitive, and never failing to ask ourselves: shouldn't software be an experience? If you seek an environment where you can flex your technical expertise as well as your imagination, this just may be the place for you.

#4 of 5REMOTE | Pasadena, CA | QLess (http://www.qless.com)
Waiting in line sucks. We're working to eliminate waiting in line, and have saved users over 1,200 years of time so far. We make it easy to get in line with a text or app, and then be notified when it's your turn, so you can use your time as you see fit.
I've been working at QLess for about a year now and love it. The team is all remote so you have the freedom to work from where ever you want (typing this from South America right now). My coworkers here are very smart, dedicated, and welcoming, and it feels good to work on a product that helps people save time every day.

#5 of 5iOS/Rails engineer - 17hats - REMOTE
17hats is an online service designed to help tame the chaos of running a small business by combining invoicing, customer quotes, contracts, to-do lists, client contacts, bookkeeping and more into one easy-to-use app. Rather than repeat all the stuff that makes 17hats so nifty, head on over to our website and check it out: https://www.17hats.com
* Required Dev Skills (please know 2 out of the 3 below):
iOS (obj-c/swift) Ruby/Rails (our API) JS (Knockout, but all new stuff is React)
- Lead by example – by writing good code, talking about good code, and then drinking beers with the team to celebrate all the good code everyone wrote
- Design and development of new product features and enhancements
- Communicate with non-engineers to define requirements and deliverables
- Know what technologies are out there in case you need to use them
- Periodically teach your co-workers all the great stuff you learned via tech talks, brown bags, blogs or open source
* About Us:
We are a small team of good-hearted folks with families, working really hard on a product that we’re very excited about. We’re committed to staying small and nimble, and we have this crazy belief that there are other good-hearted people out there willing to help us get a fair shot against the big corporate players. We hope that resonates with you.
You'll be working with people who previously worked at places like Eventbrite and Instacart, people who've contributed to Rack, and people who have founded their own startups before. We're all ambitious, but we realize the importance of being able to work from anywhere.
Every engineer on our team works remotely. That being said, we do need someone who can work California business hours (9am-6pm PST) and who is available for emergencies at night. If you live in the LA area, you are welcome to be in our cool office in Pasadena. Bonus points if you can curse in Dutch.
