Soundslice - Web UX designer - Chicago, IL

Soundslice (https://www.soundslice.com/) is "living sheet music." We make web-based, responsive music-notation technology that you can listen to and interact with. The goal is to be the best way to learn any piece of music.

See https://www.soundslice.com/demo for an example. It's one of the coolest HTML5 web apps in the world that's an actual business and not a project. When I originally posted it to HN, it stayed at the top of the homepage for the better part of a day and was universally praised: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4790636

Soundslice is a small (two-person) business -- you'd be the third. It's proudly bootstrapped and makes money. We make money by (1) licensing our technology, (2) selling a subscription service to music teachers and (3) selling interactive sheet music.

We're looking for a UX designer. Somebody who's good at the whole design process -- understanding problems, creating mockups, implementing in HTML/CSS.

WHY WORK HERE:

* You'd work on an amazing product that helps people learn music.

* Design is front-and-center of our product. Much of its value is pure UX.

* Excellent work/life balance.

* You'd work with me (one of the people who created Django, plus some other stuff; see holovaty.com). I'm an experienced developer and can teach you a lot, if you're open to it.

Email me (Adrian Holovaty) at adrian@soundslice.com.

Mutually Human – Developers/Designers – Grand Rapids, MI & Columbus, OH (on-site, full time)

We're always looking for developers, but we're especially looking for a senior designer to join our team right now.

A little bit about us:

  - We write custom software of all shapes and sizes for clients all over the US.

  - We aren't limited to any specific set of technologies, which is a great
    opportunity to learn. In the past two years, I've worked with Python, iOS,
    Angular.js, CoffeeScript, QT, Node, Ruby, Rails, and more.

  - We practice a sustainable pace. Late nights and > 40 hour weeks are
    rare by design. For example. last year I worked an average of 40.408 hours per
    week.

  - We offer competitive salaries, health/vision/dental insurance, quarterly profit
    sharing, retirement + match, weekly catered lunches, and a top-floor office
    with snacks, guitars, and your choice of standing or sitting desks.
A little bit about Grand Rapids:

  - 2.5 hours from Chicago and Detroit, less than an hour to the beach.

  - Lots of great beer. Founders Brewery (a mile from our office) has 3 beers in
    the Beer Advocate top 15. HopCat is a “World Class” bar on BA.
    Just look here: http://beeradvocate.com/beerfly/city/43

  - Low cost of living. I bought a nice house with a mortgage payment
    30% lower than the rent of my 1 bedroom apartment in Mountain View.
A little bit about you:

  - You love making software, and you have experience with a variety of technologies.

  - You learn new stuff quickly. You’ve used a lot of technologies, but you’re not
    afraid to use more.

  - You believe software is written for humans, not computers.
I'm a software developer on this awesome team. If you're interested, check out our website:

Hello, we’re Spantree, a rapidly growing boutique software engineering consultancy headquartered in West Loop of Chicago. We’re looking for a brilliant and personable engineer to join our team. Our clients range from small and scrappy startups to large banks and insurance companies. While we have a pretty broad technical focus, a key element to most of the stuff we do is building tools to help people make better decisions.

Our technical role on projects varies a bit depending on the customer, so we’re hiring organically for generalists that can be flexible up and down the stack. Though if you have deep expertise in some of the technologies listed above (esp Elasticsearch or Docker/Mesos), we can teach you the rest on an as-needed basis.

We offer competitive compensation, relatively flexible work schedules, health/vision/dental, 401K matching and the usual tech company perks (a copious amount of catered lunches in our Chicago offices, etc).

KnowledgeHound (knowledgehound.com) | Boston Engineering Intern

Deploy real-world code to production week one. Develop code and your skills. Spend some time in the sun, working in Boston and Cambridge.

WHAT WE DO: We build KnowledgeHound, a data search and exploration tool, on top of some fantastic technologies. We've got a real product, real revenue from Fortune 500 clients and real investment. We're looking to add some more interns & developers to that mix.

COME WORK FOR US IF:

   - You believe that work doesn't need to be all consuming to be productive and fulfilling,

   - You are committed to getting better at your craft every single day (tell me how you do it!),

   - You want to get your hands dirty in a real code base (sorry, powerpoint doesn't count as work here),

   - You thrive on flexibility not micromanagement and

   - You've built something real (class or side projects or previous internships are great examples)
WHAT'S THE SUMMER GOING TO BE LIKE? We've got a backlog of new features/bugs, and we're overhauling one of our major systems. We want you to join hands with the rest of our tech team and deliver production code. Just like everyone else, you'll pull a new bug/feature from the queue, work with anyone else necessary (e.g. our world-class designer, Joe) and put together a pull request. I'll be a personal resource and I'm dedicated to learning and to teaching. If you hit a snag or don't know the best way to do something, we'll work on it together.

We are a collaborative team. We count on everyone to think critically, bring ideas for improvements and champion those ideas. In other words, "We do pay you to think." Be a part of designing our product and our business.

WHERE IS THIS PLACE? I'm currently our entire Boston office (there are another half a dozen of us at the home office in Chicago and one on the West coast). On that account, we don't have a permanent office here yet. I'm planning to spend the summer working from co-working spaces, coffee shops, home, and places in the sun. I like to alternate between working surrounded by great people and taking a full day somewhere quiet to knock out some "real work" (writing code). If that sounds better than the cube farm, email me (john@knowledgehound.com).

NCC Group

Atlanta. Austin. Chicago. New York. San Francisco. Seattle. Sunnyvale.

Application Security Consultant

Full-Time, work visa sponsorship available

~-,._.,-~'`^`'~-,._.,-~'`^`'~-,._.,-~'`^`'~-,._.,-~'`^`'~-,._.,-~

Long-time Hacker News readers will be familiar with Matasano Security, and will expect to see us post in this thread. This month, there will not be a post from Matasano Security. Effective today, there will no longer be a Matasano Security. Instead, we're officially rebranding as NCC Group.

In late 2012, Matasano was acquired by NCC Group joining iSEC Partners and later Intrepidus Group. Since that time, we've been working together, cross staffing projects and benefiting from each other’s expertise. It's been a slow, steady process of increasing cohesion. We've reached the point where we need to assume a single identity, that of NCC Group.

Being a part of this process as it unfolds reminds me a bit of watching the Voltron cartoon series as a child in the '80s. The show featured pilots each commanding their own robot lions. Robot lions are fierce, powerful beings. But when they came together they'd form Voltron - a giant humanoid robot with the lions compromising each of it's parts. I like to think this is what's happening at NCC Group. What were previously separate companies each well accomplished in computer security are becoming a single even more formidable entity. "Form arms and body! And, I'll form the head!"

So, what does this have to do with hiring?

Growing a larger company requires a larger number of individuals. We still need candidates with the same skills as always; programming, reverse engineering, protocol analysis, web application building/breaking, adversarial thinking. We need people who understand technology and can identify flaws in how it's implemented. We need those who can look at a security weakness, and accurately gauge it's relative risk to the organization. And we need folks who can communicate that risk to multiple audiences, in varying levels of detail.

There's no better time than now to join us. Our integration effort has opened up opportunity within the company to focus on areas of specialization, advance skills, and take on ever more complex projects and challenges. If you've always wanted to be part of something new, but found yourself averse to the risk of early stage start ups, joining us now might be a way to do both. We're stable but we're evolving and changing, and our employees will shape what we become.

If you want to learn more about us check out our: Blog - https://www.nccgroup.trust/us/blog/ Cryptopals - http://cryptopals.com/ Microcorruption - http://microcorruption.com/

If you're ready to apply, contact us at: https://www.nccgroup.trust/us/careers/

Please, bear with us on the sites above. We've migrated a boatload of content, and it's likely there will be some website wrinkles. We'll iron them out as soon as we can (mostly we'll just keep breaking interesting software).
