NGI Systems | Software Engineer - Early Hire | Kuala Lumpur or REMOTE

We are a London-based restaurant tech startup looking for an experienced full stack Software Engineer to join as a key early hire. Visit our product website at www.NextMenu.com to see what we are building.

We're looking for a strong core-Java developer who's comfortable with dependency injection, the Java standard library and concurrency. You will be expected to analyse problems and decide on appropriate solutions, weighing the cost of development against time-to-market. You should have lots of experience writing unit tests and treat it as a key part of development, not as an afterthought.

Frontend experience using Angular.js and experience with both relational databases and NoSQL databases is highly desirable. On the infrastructure side, a strong knowledge of Linux, Android and networking is a must. Familiarity with AWS and IPSec VPN is a bonus.

You'll be working with a globally distributed team, so regular communication and daily scrum meetings are essential. We have two-week sprints so features are aggressively prioritised to meet the changing needs of our customers. You'll be involved from a very early stage, so there is the opportunity to make a huge difference to the solution we are building and to the company overall. The location preference is for Kuala Lumpur, where our CTO is based but the right person can work from anywhere.

PSYCHOLOGICAL TECHNOLOGIES (http://PSYT.co.uk) — London (UK) or remote

* We need great JavaScript and/or Android engineers

WHAT WE DO. We measure and enhance wellbeing and productivity using mobile apps. There are two strands to this. First, we quantify cognitive and psychological states, such as attention or happiness. Second, we deliver interventions, such as mindfulness, to boost cognitive and psychological skills. Right now we're trying to make the world's workplaces happier, and working mostly B2B.

WHO WE ARE. Our backgrounds span finance, psychology, technology, and design. CTO George (gmac) leads on the measurement side, having mapped the UK's wellbeing with Mappiness (http://mappiness.org.uk). CEO Nick leads on interventions, as the former Head of Research for successful mindfulness app Headspace (http://www.getsomeheadspace.com).

WHAT WE USE. We love CoffeeScript, especially for cross-platform internal app logic. We have iOS and Android apps, and both make liberal use of JavaScriptCore. Our back-end is node.js and Postgres, with heavy use of JSONB.

WHO YOU MIGHT BE. You're smart, curious, motivated. Perhaps you have some really solid JavaScript expertise backed up with a little bit of Android — or maybe it's the other way around. You know a closure from a promise, and are happy working with both. You love to learn, and you know that good UX is both super-important and properly hard.

Thread.com (YC S12) | Frontend Engineer | London, UK | Full-time | Onsite

In the process we're helping them to feel happier and more confident about themselves. We're backed by a collection of the top investors from London and Silicon Valley as well as Y Combinator.

You'd be joining a small, highly technical team with lots of startup experience (the founders have started and sold 2 companies before).

You’ll be responsible for owning the frontend code and helping shape how frontend is built, from working with designers through to integrating with the backend. You’ll also be responsible for evangelising the latest frontend technologies and techniques and bringing them into Thread where appropriate.

London, United Kingdom - Geckoboard - https://www.geckoboard.com - ON SITE (but some working from home is not a problem)

Geckoboard is a successful, growing 25-person B2B SaaS startup based in East London. Our elegant real-time dashboards solve a tricky, important problem for thousands of paying subscribers, by taking the complexity out of connecting to their data and making that information simple for everyone to interpret at a glance. As a result, our customers unlock data they didn't know they had, connect people and join up projects, and make better decisions faster.

We are looking for a front-end developer who is excited about tail call optimisation in ES6, uses TDD consistently or wants to learn to do so, and builds super usable single-page applications. Any React knowledge is a plus but we are happy for you to learn with us. Please see our jobs page for details: https://www.geckoboard.com/careers/

We’re constantly striving to ensure that we offer the most encouraging, supportive and efficient environment possible. We want everyone on the team to participate in making architectural decisions. The whole team is involved in prioritising and evaluating our work and we regularly program in pairs to share knowledge, promote collaboration, and improve code quality.

We don't just pay lip service to work-life balance, we actively and strongly encourage it. Flexible working hours and the ability to regularly work from home let you work in a way that fits you and your family, and we have generous maternity and paternity leave policies. We see our contractual obligation to offer 25 days' paid holiday as a /lower/ bound for everyone in the organisation, not a limit. We actively contribute to personal and professional development and have a minimum budget allowance to be spent on courses, books, and conferences. We also run fortnightly "innovation days", where everyone has complete freedom to work on anything that interests them, from contributing to open-source projects to learning a new skill or improving our internal tools and processes.

CloudFlare https://www.cloudflare.com/ | San Francisco, CA; London, UK; Singapore, SG | VISA, ONSITE

CloudFlare is building a better Internet -- performance and security optimization at the edge. Our long term goal is to give every site the same performance, security, and reliability that major sites like Google and Facebook accomplish, without any specialized network hardware or complicated administration. We enhance over 2 million sites,

including this one. We're hiring for a variety of roles -- started 2015 at 128, over 210 now, and hope to end around 256; doubling again in 2016. This is a perfect time to join -- product market fit is established, but there's a lot of great engineering, product, sales, and support work to be done. We've publicly said we're profitable and on track for long term independent success.

You may wish to check out our blog to see the kinds of engineering work we do. (https://blog.cloudflare.com/).

https://www.cloudflare.com/join-our-team has a listing of positions.

We're always hiring for operations/SRE, sales, general systems engineering (mostly in Go, nginx, and network, as well as DNS at scale), and web development.

Specific roles we're keen to hire include:

0) Great operations/SRE staff: operating our system at scale (65+ datacenters around the world, 24x7 coverage, millions of sites) requires highly competent, hard-working, and communicative engineers.

1) Billing engineer -- someone to take the lead as we build a new billing system. Also hiring a billing PM. We're using a great YC company's billing product.

2) Great front-end engineers -- building new UI/UX to expose controls and data to customers is an increasing portion of what we do. Our current front-end stack is Backbone + Marionette with Browserify and Sass. Our new projects are using React + Redux + Babel + css-modules, and generally adopting Higher Order Components. We're also starting the process of re-imagining our main WWW Front-end stack with a migration to Redux.

3) Systems Engineer -- looking for people to help serve even more traffic, build infrastructure for security and robustness, and contribute back to open source projects. We make extensive use of nginx, lua/luajit, and ssl-at-scale.

4) "Prototyping engineers" -- people who want to prototype things in go (backend) through js frontend. We're adding a lot of new products in 2016, and people who love building the first prototype and pilot versions of these products make everything faster.

If you're interested, please apply through the https://www.cloudflare.com/join-our-team link.

Pivotal | ONSITE SF, NYC, Palo Alto and many, many locations worldwide | Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Data Scientists | Visa and relocation assistance

First things first. We look for aptitude over APIs. It doesn't matter whether your resumé says PHP or PhD: if you're smart, know some stuff and have empathy, we want to work with you.

Pivotal's goal is to change the way the world makes software and we kinda sorta really mean it. We're broken into three basic divisions: Pivotal Labs (yes, that Pivotal Labs), Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Pivotal Big Data. Rotations between divisions, temporarily or permanently, are possible.

We have offices in San Francisco, New York City, Santa Monica, Palo Alto, Seattle, Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Toronto, London, Dublin, Tokyo and Sydney. We will soon be opening an office in Berlin as well, with more to come. Relocations, temporarily or permanently, are possible.

Each of the three divisions has a constantly evolving and deliberately cross-pollinated culture. We are constantly thinking about how we work and how we can work more sensibly, effectively and enjoyably.

-- Pivotal Labs, from which the company draws its name and cultural seed, 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.

-- Cloud Foundry solves application deployment and management. We're the main contributors to CF. We're expanding what is the leading opensource PaaS and our distribution has the fastest-growing sales of any opensource product ever. It's also the only PaaS I'd personally bet a company on -- except for integrated upstream code, every line is pair programmed and TDD'd. We dogfood the cutting edge of the technology on our own commercial public cloud (Pivotal Web Services). It works because we took the XP and Lean DNA of Pivotal Labs and scaled it up to build the best cloud platform bar none.

-- Big Data is home to a fleet of battled-hardened products that we have been progressively open sourcing. Greenplum Database tackles some of the largest datasets in the world with the comfort and familarity of PostgreSQL. Apache HAWQ (incubating) brings Greenplum's distributed query planner to Hadoop. Gemfire, which we donated as Apache Geode (incubating), is an in-memory distributed grid with years of high performance in high-stakes systems.

-- Generally

At our offices 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.

We provide visa and relocation assistance. In the NYC office we have about 15 people from overseas, including Australians like me.

You can apply through our website: http://pivotal.io/careers. You can also email me at jchester+hn@pivotal.io to answer any questions you might have and potentially help me score one of our generous referral bonuses.
