ONSITE in NYC, SF and many other locations | Engineers, Designers, Product Manager | VISA and RELOCATION assistance

Pivotal Labs is a division of Pivotal Inc.

Labs helps clients to become better at development. For engineering we are religiously lean and agile -- in practice that means we pair program and TDD every line of code from the outside. Our product managers are fantastic at keeping products sharply focused, our designers are masters from users to pixels. We have a growing data science practice, and some engagements include all four roles. If you want to work in product instead of consulting, we also have dozens of teams working on Cloud Foundry, Big Data Suite, Spring and I probably forgot some cool stuff. Or you can rotate: I had a 7-month secondment to Cloud Foundry which was awesome.

Our NYC office is growing fast to meet exploding demand for Labs, Cloud Foundry and Big Data Suite.

We are also hiring in all our offices, including new offices: SF, Palo Alto, Los Angeles, Seattle, Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Toronto, London, Dublin, Berlin, Tokyo and Sydney.

We provide visa and relocation assistance. In the NYC office we have about 15 people from overseas, including Australians like me.

At the office we have free breakfast, weekly tech talks, good benefits and competitive pay. Ping pong is not mandatory, but it's popular. I think west-coast ping pong is harder to beat, but east-coast style is more entertaining to watch. The beer fridge has more IPA than I prefer but I guess that's life in paradise.

Frankly this is the best job I've ever had -- I've learnt more here than anywhere else. Everyone is smart and fun to work with.

We look for aptitude over APIs. It doesn't matter wether your resumé says PHP or PhD: if you're smart, know some stuff and have empathy, I and my peers want to work with you.

You can apply through our website: http://pivotal.io/careers, but if you email me -- jchester@pivotal.io -- I can take advantage of our generous referral program and answer any private questions you might have.

Insikt (pronounced “in-seekt”) is a white label loan origination and investing platform that enables any brand to lend to its customers and any accredited investor to invest in consumer loan portfolios.

Insikt was born out of our realization that banks will not be the lenders of tomorrow – brands will. Traditional banks, saddled with new rules and regulation, are no longer in the business of taking risk and making loans and cannot be relied on to deliver credit access and opportunity to the masses. Instead, tomorrow’s lenders will be media companies, retailers and prominent brands that have deep relationships with their customers and want to step in to help their customers get a fair loan. But, to do it right, they need scoring, servicing, technology and capital — all of which are expensive and difficult to build. So, why build it if you don’t have to? This is the future of lending. Any brand or company can be a lender. We’ve launched “Lending as a Service” (LaaS) to power this transformation. We are bringing together the best and brightest to solve real problems in the financial industry. We are looking for diverse talent across many different domains including designers, front end and back end development, product management, analytics and data science, credit, operations, and capital markets.We want passionate, fun-loving people who can contribute positively to our company and our culture. Let us know if this sounds like you.


Technologies: front-end: angular, react back-end: java(finagle), node, groovy, postgres

we run on AWS and we use chef for deployment.

Contact me: jlisam@insikt.com with the subject "HN".

San Francisco, Los Angeles and Austin. No remote unfortunately

Connexity - Camarillo, CA (Los Angeles area) | on-site | http://connexity.com

Are you interested in learning advertising tech from the inside out? We're looking for a savvy individual who takes their personal development seriously and seeks to make a huge impact.

You'll be working alongside a tight, driven team right in the heart of the profit center. Our division of Connexity works in online display advertising (aka "banner ads") through RTB, and we run 50 to 100 million impressions each day. Our total transaction volume is between 5 and 10 billion per day, and I'd bet you a burger we've served ads on nearly every site you've ever visited.

About Connexity:

Our team is sharp and works well together. We enjoy perks such as daily paid lunch, a 9/80 schedule (to get every other Friday off) and unlimited vacation; the culture of our team recognizes and respects the importance of your non-work life. Also, Ventura county is a pretty nice place to live/work (unless you hate temperate coastal weather). If you've got Rails or other relevant web app experience, that's a good start. More importantly, you'll be eager to learn display advertising inside and out. Attitude, ambition and sound judgement trump experience with a specific set of tools.

We're a small team within a medium-sized organization, and we work hard to keep the small-team vibe while availing ourselves of the best bits from the mother ship.

Position #1: Rails + exposure to Scala & Hbase

We need someone to contribute to our Ruby on Rails app. It's used to administer hundreds of advertising campaigns across hundreds of publisher sites. It's not just boring CRUD. It provides a ton of control and insight to the team that operates our clients' campaigns; it's truly the heart of our display advertising business. The business folks will know you, and you'll find that excellence will stir up a tremendous amount of appreciation for your work.

This role is a great way to learn advertising tech at scale as well as other tools. In addition to Rails work, you'd get hands on experience with Redis, Hbase, PostgreSQL, R and Scala. Several on the current team started in the Rails app and have moved into other areas of interest (low-latency RTB bidder written in C, sophisticated reporting pipelines or novel optimization algorithms).

Position #2: Data Savvy, Impeccably Responsible

We need someone to help our Data Science team operations. You'll help us maintain and activate various data-driven ad targeting. For example, a client may provide us a billion records which we need to analyze and transform into an audience segment. This isn't a software engineering position, but you'll want to be (or learn to be) pretty capable at the command line, and able to work with Python/Bash or other scripting languages. More than anything, we want someone who can maintain order among various client-facing tasks. On paper, we have a neat structured process; in reality, we need someone with sound judgement and above-average clarity of thought and word to help drive us forward. If you like combing through data in Excel, R or similar, this might be a great fit. If you've wanted the opportunity to get your hands on large amounts of data from an analysis or management perspective, please reach out to us.

-- Unless you prefer to start with a HR-oriented chat, you can reach me (a lead engineer on the team) at david.larsen@connexity.com.
