Soundslice - Web designer - Chicago, IL. ONSITE.

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


* 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 design/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.

Location: South Loop, Chicago; ONSITE

Wouldn't it be cool to know things about software that the developers don't know?

kCura is hiring Security Engineers for its downtown Chicago South Loop location for its Operation Swordfish team. You don't need to have previous security experience for this position. What you do need is demonstrated programming proficiency, a desire to learn, and I mean learn lots, an ability to deliver bug reports diplomatically, and a burning curiosity about How Things Work.

The position is for our Software Security team Operation Swordfish. On this team, you will perform penetration testing on a wide range of software in many languages, advise developers on Secure Software Development, participate in Architecture Reviews, and program security related tools.

If you are interested, send email to wlederer at kcura.com.

There are other positions https://www.kcura.com/join-the-team/available-positions/ available as well.

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

  - 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:

NCC Group (formerly Matasano Security, iSEC Partners, and Intrepidus Group) - Austin, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Sunnyvale, CA

It's July, and I can assure you that all of our offices have better A/C than anyone else on this thread.

Many of you will be familiar with NCC Group's legacy US names - Matasano Security, iSEC Partners, and Intrepidus Group. We're now all officially integrated under the NCC Group name and one happy family.

The bottom line: if you love security and research, NCC Group just may be a perfect fit for you.

What do we do exactly? Penetration testing, security analysis, and cutting-edge research into current technologies and attacks (breaking things). You spend most of your day thinking about security systems and how they can break. You get to be creative and have a lot of freedom to be clever while learning new technologies at a very fast pace. Engagements are usually 2-4 weeks long and in a year you will be exposed to 15-20 products and technology stacks. Your work will typically initiate person-months of security improvements in products millions of people use. You will have access to senior engineers/architects and your findings/ideas will be heard by senior decision makers. You will have enormous impact in making the software people use safer. All of our consultants are also security researchers, with dedicated research time. Not too shabby!

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/ Research - https://isecpartners.github.io/
