npm, Inc - Oakland, CA (remote ok, H1B ok)

www engineer, registry engineer, support tech, cli engineer

If you program in JavaScript, or use a frontend framework like Ember or Angular, you have probably used "npm install" to get new modules, or install tools to help you get your job done. We are the company behind npm, dedicated to improving the experience of JavaScript developers all over the world by reducing friction. We are hiring for all four of our teams:

- support: "npm loves you" is our unofficial motto. Taking good care of npm users who run into trouble is central to our mission.

- CLI: maintain and improve the npm command itself. With over 3MM users, we get a lot of feature requests and edge cases.

- www: we get 5MM page views a month, and a bunch of new features are in the works.

- registry: more than 50MM fresh downloads every single day, we are a big, high-traffic distributed system.

The CLI, the website, and major parts of the registry itself are all open-source.

We are not a typical startup. We believe that working sensible hours and taking care of ourselves and our loved ones is the best way to ensure long-term productivity. We care deeply about making tech a more inclusive and diverse place to work.

Javascript Developer | UtilityAPI.com | Oakland, CA | Solar job


We are a white-label SaaS that is used by solar and energy efficiency companies to collect their customer's utility bill and usage data automatically. You will be in charge of writing tools, scripts, and libraries that collect utility data from utilities. Often these utility data formats are complex and unique to each utility (pdf bills, xml data, csv data, etc.), so you will need to be very clever in collecting and parsing a huge variety of formats. Also, these scripts can break unexpectedly when utilities change their interfaces, so being able to update them quickly is important. You will be working in our office at the SfunCube in downtown Oakland. Our current codebase is well organized, documented, and tested.

==Experience Required==

No education or certification requirements, but you do need to be able to convince us that you know and have experience with:

* Javascript (not JQuery, vanilla javascript)

* Regular Expressions (we use them heavily)

* Python (basic knowledge)

* PGP (basic usage)

* Other (side projects, hackathons, hobbies, stuff you do for fun)


$100k-$120k depending on experience.

==How To Apply==

Email me, Daniel Roesler, a cover letter and a PGP-encrypted pdf resume. Please include links to your github, bitbucket, or personal side project website (for reference, mine is daylightpirates.org).

==For Solar Skeptics==

In the last few years, the solar industry reached "grid parity", which means that the unsubsidized installed cost is now cheaper than buying power from the grid. That's why this industry is the fastest growing industry in the country. This isn't some subsidy-dependent industry anymore. We work hard and we make real money (while conveniently also saving the planet).
