RAND Corporation | Santa Monica - D.C. - Pittsburgh - Boston | Research Software Engineer, Data Science Engineer, and Visualization Engineer

We are the world’s leading think tank for policy and decision making. Read more about us here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAND_Corporation or here: http://bit.ly/1ImrPH8 or here: http://rand.org

We are looking for eager, creative folks to partner with PhD-level researchers to create cool end-to-end prototypes of research concepts.

You will work on project teams of research staff and domain experts and will often be the sole software engineer on the project. Our group functions a lot like an internal software development consultancy.

For Research Software Engineer positions, technical needs change with every project you work on. You should be a well-rounded type able to create solutions with the tools and tech that make most sense for the project. You could be writing an Angular prototype one week, Python NLP tools the next, and some social media analysis after that.

For the Data Science Engineer and Visualization Engineer positions, similar to above but with a focus on Hadoop/Spark/“Big Data” skills and visualization tech such as D3, Tableau, and R Shiny. We have particular strategic needs in Hadoop and Tableau, so if that is you, definitely hit me up.

Don’t be scared! You don’t have to be a wizard yet. The researchers provide the depth; you provide the breadth, creativity, and drive.

Good work-life balance compared to startups and mainstream tech companies. 20 days of vacation per year that you are incentivized to take! Respectable salaries despite being a non-profit. Santa Monica headquarters are a block from the ocean. Relocation for good fits.

Ready yet? Shoot me your resume at:

Welocalize | Los Angeles CA (Santa Monica)

Full Stack Developers, Product Owner

Our goal is to build a great engineering culture in our Santa Monica office:

- pair programming - support for refactoring, throwing away prototypes - experimenting with new technologies - budget for conferences and other self directed professional development - support for hosting events, giving talks, etc - support for contributing to open source projects

We've built a prototype that has generated a lot of excitement: we're using data science to match workers to task and find risk in our supply chain early, when we still have time to fix it.

Now we want to carry the concepts into an application that will be the bridge between client translation projects and thousands of workers in hundreds of countries around the world.

Right now our stack is python and javascript but we're open to other tech choices at this stage.

Come design the engineering culture you want to live in and help us reinvent the translation industry.

Positions are full time with benefits. Looking for people willing to work in our Santa Monica office on a regular basis, though of course hours are flexible and some working from home is great.

For the product owner role, experience with systems like oDesk, Uber, or online dating sites might be relevant. This is a critical role helping to bridge between several stakeholder communities (clients, workers, supply chain managers, project managers) and our development team. Some travel will probably be useful to engage with stakeholders.

TenantBase | Orange County / Los Angeles, CA | Jack-of-all-trades Software Engineer

TenantBase is the first online commercial real estate brokerage for companies seeking office space. Think Airbnb, Zillow, or Trulia, but to find your company an office. The commercial real estate space is massive. To compare: $48 billion in VC money was handed out in 2014... and there was $957 billion in commercial real estate leasing and purchases. Our average signup is worth over over $100. Commercial real estate's current technology is antiquated—finding an office is as difficult as residential house hunting circa 2004. We're changing that.

We're now at six people. We've operated for the last year in Nashville, TN as a test market. Me (tech), my two cofounders with commercial real estate backgrounds, and three employees we've hired to handle local brokerage work as business has expanded in Nashville. You'd be our first tech hire. Our pay is competitive as fuck and you'll get a good chunk of equity.

We're expanding to LA (Irvine) and Dallas this month. We're hiring in LA.

Technology: React and Flux on ES6 frontend, Django/Python backend with Postgres.

There's a really broad variety of skills that we need, so say hello if you're at all curious. If you have tech chops and have done management or recruiting before that's a strong plus. SEO experience, awesome. We're also finance nerds, so there's a world for creativity there.

http://tenantbase.com

Email me at andy@tenantbase.com

Or text me at 734 545-8789 and just say that you're from HN and curious about the job. We'll arrange a time to talk and shoot the shit for 20 minutes.

Connexity - Camarillo, CA (Los Angeles area)

Are you a talented software engineer ready to make a huge impact in a medium-sized business? We work at a scale where seemingly small improvements can have a big impact. You'll be working right in the heart of the profit center.

Our division of Connexity works in online display advertising through RTB, and run 50 to 100 million impressions each day. Our total transaction volume is between 5 and 10 billion per day. You've probably got our cookies in your browser, and we've served ads on nearly every site you've ever visited.

We're primarily looking for someone to contribute to our Rails app. It's used to administer hundreds of advertising campaigns across hundreds of publisher sites. It's not just boring CRUD. It's the heart of our display advertising business. The business folks will know you and have a tremendous amount of appreciation for your work.

This role is a great way to learn advertising tech as well as other tools. In addition to the conventional Rails work, you'd get hands on experience with Redis, Hbase, PostgreSQL, and Scala. Several on the team started in the Rails app and have moved into other areas of interest (low-latency RTB bidder written in C or sophisticated reporting and optimization). Not really possible to get bored around here unless you're a boring person.

Our team is sharp and works well together. We enjoy perks such as paid lunch, a 9/80 schedule (to get every other Friday off) and unlimited vacation; the culture of our team recognizes and respects the importance of your non-work life. Also, Ventura county is a pretty nice place to live/work. If you've got Rails or other relevant web app experience, that's a good start. More importantly, you'll be eager to learn display advertising inside and out.

Unless you prefer to start with a HR-oriented chat, you can reach me (a lead engineer on the team) at david.larsen@connexity.com.
