Naval Research Lab - Washington, DC

Roles: Java developer || GIS specialist || RF engineer

Our team at NRL is looking for a couple more talented software developers and RF / electrical engineers. Our work focuses on visualizing geospatial and scientific data, integrating it with various software, and scientific computing. We work primarily with Java, but try to make the best of it by using the new Java 8 features (lambdas, optionals, streams). Ruby, Python, and Matlab are sometimes used as well.

There are no stock options at NRL, but there are interesting problems, good co-workers, flexible hours, excellent continuing education opportunities, and stability. US citizenship and the ability to hold a security clearance are required. All work is on-site. A B.S. in a technical subject (preferably computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, or physics) is required with GPA > 3.0. Internships for students working toward a technical degree are also available, though it's too late to apply for summer 2015 internships.

For more information about our group, please visit http://www.nrl.navy.mil/tewd/organization/5770/5774. Send resumes or questions to buildersupport at nrl dot navy dot mil.

Washington DC - Nava - Reimagining technology in government - Onsite preferred

I'm part of a small team of engineers from Silicon Valley that came out to DC last year to help fix Healthcare.gov. In the process, we learned a ton about the world of government software. Many people know about the disastrous Healthcare.gov launch, but there's a long list of huge technical problems that impact everyone in the US. A few examples: people are dying because the Veteran's Administration is six months behind in processing claims, the IRS system goes down for regular maintenance every night, and the Social Security Administration is still paying benefits to millions of deceased Americans because their data is so poorly managed.

Over the past year, our team has seen an opportunity to create software that radically improves how our government serves its people, and we've started our company, Nava, to chase that vision.

You probably remember the initial launch of Healthcare.gov, but you might not have seen our relaunch in the news. That’s a good thing. Here are a few facts we can share: our new insurance application is processing 70% of all apps coming through the marketplace, converts 35% more people than the old app, gets them through in half the time, and is mobile-friendly (20% of applications were started on mobile). App 2.0 was the first system that CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) ever hosted on Amazon AWS, and the login system we just launched saves taxpayers $70 million a year. (Here's a Wired article from last summer about us: http://www.wired.com/2014/06/healthcare-gov-revamp/)

We’re continuing to rebuild and improve Healthcare.gov while expanding in bold new directions, bringing talented engineers (we're mainly Stanford, Google, and Y Combinator alums) to DC, the place where we're needed most. If you'd like to build software that reimagines how millions of Americans interact with their government, we’d love to hear from you at jobs@navahq.com.

Specifically, we’re looking for: - a product manager with a technical background - senior devops engineers - senior full-stack engineers

Lab49 (www.lab49.com) New York City OR Washington, DC ONSITE – we do offer relocation assistance

Looking for server-side engineers to work on next generation financial systems. We build applications that push the envelope when it comes to throughput, latency and resiliency.

· We are building distributed systems that deal with actor-based concurrency, reactive programming, distributed in-memory data grids, an messaging that goes beyond plain JMS; we fully expect to participate in shaping the future of financial technology stacks

· These days the majority of our server-side projects are JVM-based, but you can still find anything from Node.js to niche financial vendor packages; we’ve done everything from C++ to Python in the past and from CEP stacks to tick databases

· The ideal candidate will hit the ground running with the typical Java or Scala JVM ecosystem stack (spring and its subprojects, guice, guava, maven, hibernate, jetty, etc)

· We know that the technology landscape changes every few years, and we expect to retool continuously

· We have a track record for picking up other technologies along the whole development stack, including front-end and other non-JVM ecosystems

· In most cases, we get to work with our clients in iterative, project-based engagements, where self-organizing and focused teams move quickly to build innovative solutions for the client.

In addition to server-side, we are looking for senior Web UI developers. If you come from a strong OOP background, have an engineering mindset (we are not hacking things together or building algorithms in isolation—we build real systems, and we treat software as a craft), and are passionate about delivering quality code, we want to hear from you.
