What are we up to: We are building the deepest, broadest, baddest knowledge graph on the planet. We have billions of entities, hundreds of billions of facts, an amazing presentation layer, and a growing distribution network of top tier publishers. Everyone needs knowledge (we have close to 200M citations a month), and we’re here to satisfy that need.
What’s next: we’ve built an amazing product architecture that leverages our expansive knowledge graph. The next step is to become a dominant force in the growing knowledge industry. I'd love to talk to anyone working or interested in this exciting space. Unsolicited outreach is strongly encouraged! (ivan -at- graphiq.com)
About the team: The challenge of scaling human organizations is not unlike the task of scaling a technology stack. Just as large monolithic software applications tend to become ineffective and fail, a highly scalable engineering organization can't be dependent on hierarchy. Developers, designers, and data analysts can form small, cross-functional, mission-oriented teams that are able to operate decoupled of one another (Bezo's 2PT). Besides yielding more effective results, this distributed systems approach to human organizations promotes a happier, more harmonious engineering culture.
#3 of 3At ShipHawk, each developer is entrusted with autonomy and is provided transparency to all parts of the company. The more you put in, the more you get out of your experience here. We are a small agile team that's growing rapidly, 10 minutes away from Santa Barbara beaches. Pair programming and mobbing are the standard. We're tackling ambitious problems and there's no shortage of optimism and excitement here.
n addition to standard development skills, we're looking for you to have optimism, ambition, and a go-get-it attitude. You enjoy solving complex packaging and shipping problems and seek to make a tangible difference to the industry fast. For example: say you have a bunch of boxes of different sizes. You'll have to determine whether the boxes can fit on a pallet, and what the best way is to arrange them. If you say: no problem, give me multiple pallets and a weight and orientation constraint, then we want to talk to you!
You have: - 3+ Years of Ruby on Rails Development and 5+ years developing software in a commercial environment - Solid experience in building high-performance, reliable and scalable services - Experience with Ajax based user interfaces - Experience with our current technology stack is a bonus: Ruby on Rails, AngularJS, React, Git, Postgres - Shipping/transportation industry experience is a bonus
