London, UK | ONSITE | Full time | Frontend web dev

Boiler Room is the world’s leading community of underground music fans. We live-stream DJ sets and live gigs from music hubs such as London, Berlin, New York, Paris, LA and >60 other cities to music lovers all over the world. It started as a webcam taped to a warehouse wall in East London - in five years Boiler Room has grown to become the online home of underground music, and also a complex broadcasting and editorial platform in its own right.

We are currently in the process of building the next generation of the web app powering Boiler Room. We have upwards of a million views on our site a month, and that’s not including the hundreds of millions of views that our videos have accumulated on YouTube and Dailymotion. We want to create a completely unique web experience that lives up to the quality of our live shows. To do that we need someone who knows their way around the wonderful mess that is front-end web development, and truly cares about the experience that music lovers will have while using our web app on all kinds of devices.

You’ll be an essential part of a dev team currently consisting of 2 developers and 2 designers. You should have strong opinions about how web development should be done in 2015, and you should be able to come up with and implement new ideas for consuming & sharing online music experiences. You'll be working in our river-side office in Wapping, East London, and you’ll of course be able to go to and invite your friends to the exclusive parties being live-streamed on the site.

Our frontend stack: React, Redux, ImmutableJS, Gulp, Webpack, Babel, CSSNext

If this sounds like your kind of jam, email our tech lead (lachenmayer) <harry.l+hn@boilerroom.tv> or drop me a line <ben.jeffrey+hn@boilerroom.tv>

CrowdJustice.org - London, UK - Junior Dev and Tech Lead roles - Full-time

We are a tech-for-good for-profit helping communities fund access to justice. Think Kickstarter for court cases - or Change.org with hard legal outcomes - we've funded cases ranging from Supreme Court interventions to local communities trying to prevent developers destroying their green spaces. Our MVP has raised nearly $400k for exciting cases from a standing start in a few months and we are building a team to grow nationally in the UK and internationally.

What that means on the product front is developing a world class webapp (mainly written in Django) that has huge scope for helping users interface with cases, social issues and other donors. Engineers with a keen interest in user funnels and metrics (&, um, social justice) please get in touch! https://www.crowdjustice.co.uk/jobs or email julia@crowdjustice.co.uk

Google | Mountain View / San Francisco / London | Software Engineer | Onsite


Google for Work Labs/Incubation is a skunk works R&D team working inside of Google's Enterprise division, coming up with the next big google B2B product

The team operates as a startup, and has internal funding rounds for each of our ideas. On a regular basis our teams interact with [x], life-sciences, ventures, and other alphabet companies.

The team tries to solve the following question: What business technology need is currently going unsolved, that can be built today, where google has a distinct advantage.

Once we identify a product which meets that criteria, we'll evaluate and potentially create an MVP and raise a seed fund (from google). If the project's successful we'll keep going through funding rounds and raising money internally.

As a prototype engineer, you'll get to write software for custom circuit-boards & hardware, embedded computing, cloud computing, big data, mobile apps, and web-apps.

We're looking for candidates with a strong software background, and an understating of product. Feel free to email me directly at bookman@google.com with your resume and a link to your github.

NGI Systems | Software Engineer - Early Hire | Kuala Lumpur or REMOTE

We are a London-based restaurant tech startup looking for an experienced full stack Software Engineer to join as a key early hire. Visit our product website at www.NextMenu.com to see what we are building.

We're looking for a strong core-Java developer who's comfortable with dependency injection, the Java standard library and concurrency. You will be expected to analyse problems and decide on appropriate solutions, weighing the cost of development against time-to-market. You should have lots of experience writing unit tests and treat it as a key part of development, not as an afterthought.

Frontend experience using Angular.js and experience with both relational databases and NoSQL databases is highly desirable. On the infrastructure side, a strong knowledge of Linux, Android and networking is a must. Familiarity with AWS and IPSec VPN is a bonus. You'll be working with a globally distributed team, so regular communication and daily scrum meetings are essential. We have two-week sprints so features are aggressively prioritised to meet the changing needs of our customers. You'll be involved from a very early stage, so there is the opportunity to make a huge difference to the solution we are building and to the company overall. The location preference is for Kuala Lumpur, where our CTO is based but the right person can work from anywhere.

Vidados | https://www.vidados.com | London, UK | Full Time | Onsite | Front end designer / developer

Around the world, many small businesses offer amazing activity holidays in great locations. Think wine-tasting in Bordeaux, surfing in Morocco, cookery in Tuscany. Due to their activity and their personal nature, these holidays do not fit into the standard package holiday systems.

Vidados is aiming to provide the tools to help these holiday providers fly. Starting with an online marketplace at www.vidados.com but progressing to bookings through all channels, email marketing, inventory management and much more.

We already have a beautiful, functional, responsive front end but there is so much more we want to do, so we are looking for an in-house designer / CSS developer to help us do it.

You should:

- have a great eye for design and feel for usability

- understand HTML and CSS and be able to turn your concepts into reality

- either be competent with JavaScript or at least have an idea for what is possible with it

We are an angel-funded startup but we already have a year of real revenue and growing traction. We have ideas coming out of our ears and are a very friendly bunch and it's really a great place to work.

If this sounds interesting to you please contact gareth[at]vidados[dot]com.

London, United Kingdom - Geckoboard - https://www.geckoboard.com - ON SITE (but some working from home is no problem)

Geckoboard is a successful, growing 25-person B2B SaaS startup based in East London. Our elegant real-time dashboards solve a tricky and important problem for thousands of paying subscribers, by taking the complexity out of connecting to data and making that information simple for everyone to interpret at a glance. As a result, our customers unlock data they didn't know they had, connect people and join up projects, and make better decisions faster.

We are looking for a front-end developer who uses TDD consistently or wants to learn to do so and builds super usable single-page applications. Any React knowledge is a plus but we are happy for you to learn with us. Please see our jobs page for details: https://www.geckoboard.com/careers/

The whole team is involved in prioritising and evaluating work, and we regularly program in pairs to share knowledge, promote collaboration, and improve code quality.

Flexible working hours and the ability to regularly work from home let you work in a way that fits you and your family, and we have generous paternity and maternity leave policies.

We also run fortnightly "innovation days", where everyone has complete freedom to work on anything that interests them, from contributing to open-source projects to learning a new skill or improving our internal tools and processes.

Octopus Energy | Hammersmith, London, UK

We are a new energy supplier for the UK market, and we're looking for programmers (especially with Python experience) to join us. We're going to use Python to build a modern infrastructure for interacting with both consumers (via the web, mobile apps and smart-meters) and the industry (eg trading on the wholesale market, managing the billing life cycle).

To start with, we'll be using Django and the Django-REST-framework for the consumer-facing sites, and employing Pandas and Numpy for some of the heavier data processing required. We use AWS heavily, employing most of the Hashicorp toolset (Vagrant, Packer, Consul, Terraform) and are planning to use Lambda to build event-driven functionality.

This is a great opportunity for several reasons:

* We have lots of difficult design challenges to solve. The UK energy market is very complicated and process-heavy - there's an awful lot of domain modelling that we need to get right.

* We have difficult technical problems to solve. With the advent of smart meters, we'll soon be processing millions of meter readings a day. We need the right technology in place to handle this smoothly as well as feeding data into a machine learning pipeline that models and predicts consumption.

* There's a great opportunity for disruption in the UK energy market. The big suppliers still dominate, but are not exactly popular. The energy landscape is changing as we move to more disaggregated forms of generation, with less predictability, more dynamism and smarter technology.

* You'll be working for a company that is genuinely helping to make the world a better place. We'll be helping move people onto using greener technology and consuming energy from renewable sources. This will all help transition the UK towards a lower carbon future.

More details here: http://tech.octopus.energy/2015/11/23/tech-jobs.html

Our offices are in Hammersmith. We're open to some remote working but not 100% remote at this early stage of the company.

CloudFlare https://www.cloudflare.com/ | San Francisco, CA; London, UK; Singapore, SG | VISA, ONSITE

CloudFlare is building a better Internet -- performance and security optimization at the edge. Our long term goal is to give every site the same performance, security, and reliability that major sites like Google and Facebook accomplish, without any specialized network hardware or complicated administration. We enhance over 2 million sites, including this one. We're hiring for a variety of roles -- started 2015 at 128, ended around 220, doubling again in 2016. This is a perfect time to join -- product market fit is established, but there's a lot of great engineering, product, sales, and support work to be done. We've publicly said we're profitable and on track for long term independent success.

You may wish to check out our blog to see the kinds of engineering work we do. (https://blog.cloudflare.com/). https://www.cloudflare.com/join-our-team has a listing of positions.

We're always hiring for operations/SRE, sales, general systems engineering (mostly in Go, nginx, and network, as well as DNS at scale), and web development.

Specific roles we're keen to hire include:

0) Great operations/SRE staff: operating our system at scale (65+ datacenters around the world, 24x7 coverage, millions of sites) requires highly competent, hard-working, and communicative engineers.

1) Billing engineer -- someone to take the lead as we build a new billing system. Also hiring a billing PM. We're using a great YC company's billing product.

2) Great front-end engineers -- building new UI/UX to expose controls and data to customers is an increasing portion of what we do. Our current front-end stack is Backbone + Marionette with Browserify and Sass. Our new projects are using React + Redux + Babel + css-modules, and generally adopting Higher Order Components. We're also starting the process of re-imagining our main WWW Front-end stack with a migration to Redux.

3) Systems Engineer -- looking for people to help serve even more traffic, build infrastructure for security and robustness, and contribute back to open source projects. We make extensive use of nginx, lua/luajit, and ssl-at-scale.

4) "Prototyping engineers" -- people who want to prototype things in go (backend) through js frontend. We're adding a lot of new products in 2016, and people who love building the first prototype and pilot versions of these products make everything faster.

If you're interested, please apply through the https://www.cloudflare.com/join-our-team link

Pivotal | ONSITE SF, NYC, Palo Alto and many, many locations worldwide | Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Data Scientists | Visa and relocation assistance

First things first. We look for aptitude over APIs. It doesn't matter whether your resumé says PHP or PhD: if you're smart, know some stuff and have empathy, we want to work with you.

Pivotal's goal is to change the way the world makes software and we kinda sorta really mean it. We're broken into three basic divisions: Pivotal Labs (yes, that Pivotal Labs), Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Pivotal Big Data. Rotations between divisions, temporarily or permanently, are possible.

We have offices in San Francisco, New York City, Santa Monica, Palo Alto, Seattle, Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Toronto, London, Dublin, Tokyo and Sydney. We will soon be opening an office in Berlin as well, with more to come. Relocations, temporarily or permanently, are possible.

Each of the three divisions has a constantly evolving and deliberately cross-pollinated culture. We are constantly thinking about how we work and how we can work more sensibly, effectively and enjoyably. Right now we are particularly trying to grow in Labs and Cloud Foundry.

-- Pivotal Labs, from which the company draws its name and cultural seed, 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.

-- Cloud Foundry solves application deployment and management. We're the main contributors to the Cloud Foundry project. We're constantly improving the leading opensource PaaS -- our distribution has the fastest-growing sales of any opensource product ever.

It's also the only PaaS I'd personally bet a company on. Except for integrated upstream code, every line is pair programmed and TDD'd. We dogfood the cutting edge of the technology on our own commercial public cloud (Pivotal Web Services). It works because we took the XP and Lean DNA of Pivotal Labs and scaled it up to build the best cloud platform bar none.

-- Generally

At our offices 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.

Firefly Learning | Developers | London UK | ONSITE

Imagine you could save every teacher in a school one hour a week. Instead of an hour of drudgery, they could be preparing their lessons, teaching or actually having a life outside the classroom. At Firefly, you can help do exactly that.

Firefly is a learning platform used by hundreds of schools worldwide to create, share and learn. We combine easy content creation with deep school integration to make a useful tool for class work, homework, and coursework. We’re self funded and doubling yearly. As an established company serving many customers and integrating with a variety of other services, we’re continually learning how apply best practices to existing code, whilst still deploying new features and bug fixes for teachers and students every two weeks. We're currently focusing on getting better at separating of concerns and building up an automated testing suite. We’re also improving the speed and reliability of our infrastructure, and trying new technologies to keep current (e.g. Swift and React).

We looking for four main strengths in you:

◦ skill: your colleagues would say you get things done. You work to a high standard, and know about and apply appropriate best practices in your work. You are at home with improving and extending existing code as well as new development.

◦ desire to learn: despite (or perhaps because of) you being good at what you do, you want to get better. You seek out best practices, new ideas, honest feedback, and unknown areas of code, in order to know more and work better.

◦ understanding: our product team is great but not infallible. You’ll be happy to challenge and clarify product decisions with our users’ best interests at heart. Similarly, our QA team is meticulous but not your babysitter. You’ll be handing something polished to QA, not throwing the first thing that compiles over the wall. Overall, everyone at Firefly shares responsibility for the product making sense and being of high quality.

◦ clear communication: We have a lightweight process, so most days, other than a morning standup meeting to share what’s going on and what’s planned, you’ll be responsible for your time. This also means that, when there are issues, you need to inform the right people, explain what’s going wrong, and help get things resolved and moving forward again. Speaking of process, we have a design team who handle HTML and CSS, a product and UX team who produce clear specifications, a QA team to help us build things well, and a two-week sprint cycle for getting things done. Other than that, we’re pretty small-a agile and are happy to try things out to see what helps.

In terms of experience, we need you to be comfortable with iOS or a web platform. Our server-side code is written in C# and our web front end has some Javascript, so you’ll need to know these or be able to pick them up. We work as generalists, so experience of any of the following would be a positive: iOS, Android, Windows Phone, shell scripting, infrastructure automation, building API integrations, and databases (particularly SQL Server).

We offer competitive salaries dependent on experience, a generous bonus scheme, flexible training budget, brown bag talks and a Kaizen day for self-improvement and experimentation every fortnight. So, if you’ve got an interest in education and a desire to learn your craft alongside others making the same journey, we want to hear from you.
