Javascript Developer | UtilityAPI.com | Oakland, CA | daniel@utilityapi.com | Solar job

==Description==

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 years of experience, education, or certification requirements, but you do need to be able to convince me 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)

==Compensation==

$100k-$120k depending on experience.

==How To Apply==

Email me 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).

Pandora | Oakland, CA | Backend java developers at all levels, prefer noSQL database XP and multi-threading XP

Do you love music? Want to see your work impact the lives of hundreds of millions of people? If so, our music engineering team at Pandora could be a fit! This team works with the data of our 250+ million users to maintain and improve our listeners' experience. We're backend Java engineers, are highly visible within the org, and make a direct impact on our product by partnering with our scientists and product managers analyzing huge amounts of user data. We owned Pandora's integration with Google NOW and are generally working on interesting and exciting tech.

We deploy on Linux, code primarily in Java, use Python for scripting, Postgres for traditional DB and Redis for noSQL DB solution, interact with Hadoop/Hive (so any exposure to big data tech is a plus).

We're based in Oakland (and love it here) and have a very flexible remote work environment combined with a more traditional onsite setup. A good example: the team I work on is in the office M-TH 10am-4pm and Friday is an unofficial everyone work from home day. WFH because of kids, pets, doctors appts, etc. is normal and expected; this is not your normal clock-punch corporate environment.

Competitive comp, equity packages, bonus structure, good benefits, 40 hours of paid volunteer time each year, and all kinds of other work/life oriented perks come with our full time gigs. Happy to talk to anyone who is even remotely curious about this (or other engineering roles)! We're hiring!

Contact: adoyal@pandora.com for more info!

=====================================

Technical Cofounder Near Oakland, CA.

=====================================

We’re looking for an ambitious, full-stack javascript developer to join our team.

The product is a database in the cloud. But, it’s not for applications, it’s for people.

Instead of apps storing people’s data, people bring their own personal database for apps to use. That's this database.

Apps can read and write data to it, and multiple apps can be connected to it simultaneously.

The owner of the database can disconnect it at any time, without losing their data, and finally use one set of data everywhere.

It’s a paradigm shift. Once you open this door, tons of neat things are possible.

If this sounds interesting to you, please contact me.
