Udacity (http://udacity.com/jobs) - Mountain View, CA Openings: Full-Stack Engineer, Backend Engineer, Front-End Engineer, Lead Designer, Product Designer

I recently saw an interactive map of the US[1]. Each state had its most common profession listed over the period of 1978-2014. For 2014, you'll see that truck driving is by far and away and the most common profession. No real surprise there. However, if you look closely, you'll see that in Utah, Virginia, Washington and Colorado that software developer has become that states most common profession. How amazing! I am convinced that within the next 2-8 years, we'll start to see a gargantuan shift where tech skills are in such demand (even more so than now) that Software Developers become the most commonplace profession across the US and world. Udacity will be powering the education behind all of that.

If you're world-class in what you do, please get in touch at oliver@udacity.com.

Society of Grownups - https://www.societyofgrownups.com/careers - Boston, MA (Washington Square, Brookline)

As a Senior Software Engineer, you’ll be a key member of our team by being an advocate for unit and integration testing as we build out brand new financial education software from the ground up.

We’re a small team of talented developers looking for someone with a history of shipping scalable production-ready code in a highly collaborative environment. Our entire team comes from different backgrounds with different levels of experience, and we’re looking for a friendly engineer who can focus on helping us become better testers and developers. In that capacity, you’ll also work closely with our QA Lead to write integration tests, while keeping a keen eye on the user experience of our platform.

As our testing infrastructure becomes more robust, you’ll shift into writing isomorphic Javascript applications in Node.js and Ember. We’re a flat team with a high level of autonomy and personal responsibility, so the code you write will almost always be the direct result of an idea that we came up with -- together. You’ll have a rare opportunity to take ownership of the software you develop, and rely on your instincts and intuition to deliver a world-class experience to our grownups.

What you’ll do:

- Ensure that we’re using the best tools for unit and integration testing

- Help each developer figure out a personal workflow for testing

- Author code using Javascript and Ruby, while occasionally pair programming

What we’re looking for:

- Significant experience with unit testing and integration testing

- Strong knowledge of Javascript, SQL, and atleast one other programming language

- Experience with, or a desire to, mentor other developers

We offer very competitive compensation, a fantastic benefits package, flexible hours + WFH, and a level of individual trust, respect, and autonomy rarely found in most engineering teams.

Interested? Send us any questions, or a brief cover letter + resume to careers@societyofgrownups.com
