Nava | Washington DC^ | Experienced full-stack developers/devops/product manager/operations | On-site - Full Time

We're a small team of engineers from Silicon Valley that came out to DC last year to help fix Healthcare.gov. It turns out there’s a lot more to fix. And it’s surprising how much can be fixed by a small group of resourceful people with a Silicon Valley mindset, deep technical experience, working closely with dedicated civil servants in government.

Our revamped Healthcare.gov application has been used by millions, converts 35% better, and halves the completion time. The login system we rebuilt is about two orders of magnitude more reliable and two orders of magnitude less expensive; for example, it’s about $70M less per year to operate.

People die because the Veteran's Administration is months behind in processing claims. The Social Security Administration pays benefits to millions of deceased Americans. $80 billion is spent every year on federal IT contracting, and 96% of projects are deemed failures. [0]

That’s not because there’s some conspiracy or because government is inherently incapable of doing it right. These are complicated legacy systems and processes, and there are very few people with modern tech industry experience who are aware of these problems and willing to help fix them. You can help change that.

Our team is 10 people (Stanford, Google, YC alums), and we plan to bring on a few people every month through 2015.

We’re looking for:

* experienced full-stack engineers

* experienced devops engineers

* a product manager with a technical background

* a hyper-resourceful operations person

We have a social mission (we just incorporated as a public benefit corporation), but we pay market compensation (above market, for DC) and equity (above market).

If you'd like to build software and infrastructure that radically improves how our government serves people, we’d love to hear from you at jobs@navahq.com

^Not in DC / able to relocate, but intrigued and in SF? Talk to us!

For more info, google "nava startup" (our SEO, not strong)

Washington, DC | ONSITE preferred, REMOTE considered

UrbanStems (https://urbanstems) || Fast flowers at affordable prices

We're growing and need a highly skilled JavaScript (Node) developer to come help us build stuff quicker. Our backend is almost fully powered by Node. The position requires someone who can adapt and thrive under pressure. Some of the backend is being moved to micro-services but we're not planning to go overboard with it. You'll be the third engineer (joining me and another person) and employee #15 so you'll have a huge impact on not only the tech but the company itself. We're passionate about making our customers happy and know that our tech plays a big part of that process. Come join us!

Most of the work requires backend knowledge:

* JavaScript (we're slowly moving the codebase over to ES6), Node/io * Postgres, Redis * API development * nginx/AWS/DevOps (some base knowledge, at the very least) * Would be awesome if you know front-end dev (Backbone, React, moving to Flux-like arch soon). Not necessary though so don't fret.

Please email me at chetan@urbanstems.com. I definitely value seeing your past work over a standard resume but feel free to send it along.

PwC US | Washington, DC; San Jose, CA | On Site | Full Time

We are transforming traditional network security analytics, utilizing cloud technologies to improve detection and alerting of security threats. You will work on enterprise-facing products in the information security space.

Our team is small and agile but part of one of the world's largest professional services firms, PwC.

We're looking for:

  - frontend and backend software engineers
  - DevOps engineers
  - a product-focused engineering manager
  - data integrators (client facing, still technical)
to be part of a small but growing engineering team in a "startup in the enterprise" type of setting. This team is part of PwC's Advisory services, but these are NOT consulting positions (except for data integrators; that is more consultanty -- somewhat similar to "forward deployed engineer" positions you find elsewhere).

Ideally, you will have experience in building scalable web applications and/or data analytics solutions. You should have experience with some (not all) of our tech stack:

  - Python, Java, Javascript, SQL
  - Kafka, Spark, Google BigQuery, Cassandra, Elasticsearch, MySQL
  - Ansible, Google Cloud Platform
  - Information security topics, log aggregators (e.g., fluentd, logstash), data analytics
You must be comfortable with:

  - linux shell
  - cloud infrastructure
  - git
Email me at kevin dot schumacher at pwc.com if you are interested in discussing any of these roles (please put "HN" in the subject - no recruiters, please).

This is Melbourne/Indialantic Florida, Austin and San Antonio Texas, Maryland, Virginia, Greer South Carolina, Fayetteville North Carolina, Huntsville Alabama, Cambridge (near Boston) Massachusetts, Seattle Washington, and more.

Note that a few of those locations combine low housing costs, lack of an income tax, super-short commutes, and very little traffic. It can be a shock compared to what you may be used to.

This is ONSITE. We hire at all levels, including INTERNS. We can only hire US citizens due to government requirements. Our background check includes a polygraph.

We do lots of reverse engineering, vulnerability research, custom in-house emulation (with JIT and/or hypervisor), constraint solvers, and static analysis of both source and binary code. We work with numerous OSes and processor types. You could write the tools (emulator, JIT, hypervisor, debugger, static analysis, etc.) or you could make use of them to find vulnerabilities. An understanding of compilers is often helpful.

You can run Linux. We don't expect overtime, but we'll pay you for it if you want to do it. Most locations have extreme flex-time and offices with solid walls.

If you happen to be at DEF-CON 23 in Las Vegas (August 6-9) you can catch us there.

Bridj is your everyday transportation system that adapts in real-time to where you live, work, and play. Powered by data, we use a network of express shuttles that offer efficient and flexible trips that are as dynamic as the city you call home.

And we’re just getting started.

We are looking for developers who will be excited to put their skills to work solving some of the most difficult and important transportation problems, helping people travel through their cities more easily.

We are hiring for a couple positions now:

1) iOS developer: https://www.smartrecruiters.com/Bridj/84143330-mobile-engine.... You’ll be driving development of the iOS app that our passengers use to book travel. We expect you to be a mobile-first thinker, with up-to-date knowledge of the iOS development world (including things like Swift and ReactiveCocoa).

2) full stack / backend developer: https://www.smartrecruiters.com/Bridj/84142588-full-stack-ru.... You’ll touch all of our systems: mobile apps, client-side javascript and HTML, server-side APIs (building ours and consuming others), back-end data processing — you name it. Our stack today includes Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, and Redis, but we’re growing fast and building new things, and will expect you to help us shape the stack of the future.

3) backend tech lead / architect: No official job posting yet. You'll help us build out the technology stack we want and need as we grow. Do you have production experience with multiple tech stacks? Have an opinion on whether Rails is a good choice for a high-performance API backend? How we should store real-time data about the locations of buses? How we should be versioning our services? If you want to dig in, write a lot of code, and make things the way you think they should be, we want to hear from you.
