Interested in Gov+Tech? Sr and Jr full stack developers, executive assistant sought GovReady | Washington, DC | ONSITE, INTERNS | US Citizens only

GovReady is developing an open source expert system to make the painful paperwork of IT Cybersecurity Compliance a thing of the past, the same way modern tax-prep software replaced confusing forms and instructions. https://www.dhs.gov/science-and-technology/news/2016/03/01/s...

I'm aiming to build a small, eclectic and non-traditional team of thoughtful software builders each of whom have genuine interest in multiple parts of the stack and/or operations. Six figure salary for Sr individual with track record of open source contributions and respectable salary for Jr individual with evidence of ability to learn and interesting background. Gov experience a plus, but not a barrier.

Put "Hacker News - GovReady Jobs" in subject line and email to jobs@govready.com and remove name and biographical information from your resume (but include github or other relevant handle). Unfortunately, US Citizens only... https://www.linkedin.com/in/greg-elin-b8885b4

Pivotal | ONSITE SF, NYC, Palo Alto and many, many locations worldwide | Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Pre/Post-Sales Engineers, Operators, Sales

We value aptitude over alma mater, empathy over APIs. It doesn't matter whether your résumé says PHP or PhD: if you're smart, empathetic and know some stuff, 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. Moving between divisions, temporarily or permanently, is possible.

We have offices in San Francisco, New York City, Santa Monica LA, Palo Alto, Seattle, Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Toronto, London, Dublin, Tokyo, Sydney, Berlin, Singapore and Beijing, with more coming.

We are constantly thinking about how we work and how we can work more sensibly, effectively and enjoyably.

-- 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.

-- 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.

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 available.

-- Big Data is our suite of battled-hardened products, now open sourced. Greenplum tackles massive datasets with the comfort of PostgreSQL. Apache HAWQ (incubating) brings Greenplum's distributed query planner to Hadoop. Gemfire, donated as Apache Geode (incubating), is an in-memory distributed grid with years of high performance in high-stakes systems.

-- Generally

At our offices we have free breakfast, weekly tech talks, good benefits and competitive pay. You'll probably learn more, more quickly, than any other time in your career. Ping pong isn't 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.

You can see the available jobs and apply through our website: https://pivotal.io/careers. If you do, please mention my name. You can also email me at jchester+hn@pivotal.io to answer any questions you might have. Either of these helps me score one of our referral bonsues (did I mention our generous referral scheme?)

For what it's worth, I'm just an engineer, so my replies might not be immediate. I hope that's OK.

Nava | Washington DC & San Francisco | Experienced full-stack developers/devops/product manager | On-site - Full-time | $100k-$160k + equity

We're a small team of engineers and designers 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 is 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 about fifteen people (Stanford, Google, Khan Academy, Dropbox, YC alums) in DC and SF, and we plan to grow significantly in 2016.

We’re looking for: * experienced full-stack engineers * experienced devops engineers * a product manager with a technical background (DC only) * a technical project manager (DC only)

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

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.

Learn more about us: http://navahq.com

Full-Stack Engineer / Data Scientist | The Open Syllabus Project (http://explorer.opensyllabusproject.org) | NYC / SF | Full-time | NYC or Remote

The Open Syllabus Project is an academic data-mining project at Columbia and Stanford that’s extracting structured information from a corpus of 1M+ college course syllabi. What’s actually being taught in college classrooms? How has this changed over time? What can we learn about the organization of the modern university from large-scale trends in the texts that are being assigned? How can insights from these data be applied to curriculum development, education policy, and lifelong learning?

We launched a beta version of the platform with an op-ed in the New York Times in January, and since then the project has appeared in The Washington Post, Time, The Chronicle of Higher Education, MarketWatch, Der Spiegel, Business Insider, Lifehacker, FiveThirtyEight, WNYC, QZ, and elsewhere. It's also been picked up by major news outlets in Europe, Russia, China, Japan, South Korea, Ukraine, Egypt, and Mexico.

We're looking for someone who has experience with large-scale data analysis, natural language processing, web archiving, and web application development to help us grow OSP into a comprehensive, feature-rich authority about teaching trends in higher education. Some of the things we're going to be working on in the coming months:

* Build a scalable infrastructure for crawling university websites for syllabi, with the goal of growing the corpus to 4-5M documents in the next 6 months.

* Expand the universe of books and articles that we search for in syllabi by identifying new bibliographic databases (Citeseer, arXiv) and integrating them into OSP’s data extraction pipeline.

* Write classifiers to improve the accuracy of the citation and metadata extraction jobs.

* Expand the public-facing web application to surface new types of information – visualize change in assignment trends over time, add profile pages for authors and publishers, and build richer ways to explore the citation graph.

* Help develop a research program around the data. We’re interested in applications to information science, literary studies, education policy, history of science, and canon / university studies.

If these kinds of projects sound interesting, we'd love to hear from you! We use Python for the data extraction rig and the public-facing website (Flask), Elasticsearch for citation extraction, React+Redux on the front end, and Ansible to manage infrastructure on AWS. Beyond specific technologies, though – first and foremost we're looking for a collaborator and partner who can help us build on what we have and push the project in new directions.

Drop us a line at syllabusopen@gmail.com.
