IMVU | Redwood City, California | Remote


The teams at the top of our hiring priority right now are the operations, android, ios, and web services teams.

I lead the operations team, so I know the most about this position. For the operations team, we're looking to hire an SRE or a sysadmin. We're open to a remote employee for this team. We run one-week on-call shifts, so you'll need to be on-call once every six or seven weeks. The operations team is responsible for monitoring and maintaining about 800 servers (hardware is all handled by a different team). We're mostly running Ubuntu today, but we're in the middle of migrating our first service into coreos/kubernetes. We've got some legacy code in Perl, and most new code we write is in Go. Our biggest projects planned for the next year involve containerization, network storage, and possibly investigating migrating the most-elastic parts of our workload into amazon or google's cloud. We're open to non-coding contributors in a sysadmin role instead of SRE. For a remote employee, we'd want you to come on-site for the initial spin-up process.

For the Android and iOS teams, I know we'd love someone with 3d experience. I don't think those teams are very interested in a remote member.

The web services team writes mostly PHP and Haskell. This is working on the backend supporting our mobile, web, and native clients.

Our hiring process usually involves a couple of casual phone screens, then a series of on-site interviews.

The company runs a chat service and a marketplace for users to make and sell 3d content to each other. It's a fairly relaxed, laid-back company. I started working here in 2010, quit in 2013 to try working at Google, and came back here a year later when I decided that Google was far too stressful for me to be happy.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me. My personal email is in my profile, and my work email is sweeks@imvu.com.

Human API | Redwood City, CA & Vancouver, BC | Full-time | ONSITE | http://humanapi.co/ | jobs@humanapi.co

== About us ===

We're a small, product-centric team focused on opening the world of health data. We're solving a hard but interesting problem: health data exchange. We ingest health data from thousands of sources and transform that data into an API that developers can build apps on. This allows thousands of developers to create apps that improve peoples' lives. Our investors include a16z, Eric Schmidt, Blue Run Ventures, Max Levchin, Scott Banister, and Alex Payne.

== What you will build ==

Human API is the easiest way to integrate health data from anywhere. Users can now securely share their health data with any application or system, regardless of how that data was recorded, processed or stored. As an engineer on our team, you’ll be involved in one or more of the following areas:

  - Modeling clinical data: organizing and normalizing the world of health data
  - Developing and scaling structured APIs
  - Scaling our ingestion platform and optimizing a multivariate rate limited system
  - Data engineering and building tools for data science - NLP and Classification
  - Powering platforms and tools for customers to build health apps
== Open roles ==

Most of our engineers have a diverse programming background (Javascript (Node.js) / Scala / Python / Java / C), and most roles require willingness to work on Node.js. However, we gravitate toward using the right tool for the job. Experience with some of the following is required:

  - Stream processing and unified log systems with Kafka and RabbitMQ
  - Mongodb, Redis and Cassandra for data storage
  - Data analysis with Spark or Python tools
  - Building and scaling a modern infrastructure stack with Docker and Mesos
  - Building consumer focused apps and/or developer focused tools
  - Powering search with ElasticSearch and related tools
  - Building a performant mobile UI using React
You can read more about some of the open roles here: http://humanapi.co/company/join

We'd love to hear from you even if you don't "fit" one of the job specs -- we hire for people, not roles. If you're interested, contact jobs@humanapi.co
