#6 of 16Kash (YC S14) | withkash.com | Full Stack Engineer | ONSITE in San Francisco, CA / Waterloo, ON, Canada / Toronto, ON, Canada
We're on a mission to build a new payment network as an alternative to credit cards.
Why? Credit cards impose a hidden tax on everything. The profit margin of your average neighborhood store is under 2%. A typical grocery store’s operating margin is around 1.7%. On the other hand, the typical cost of processing all payments is about 2%. As Priceonomics puts it, "Credit card fees are 2% or more of nearly pure profit."
There has been many innovations built on top of the existing credit card network, but none of those fundamentally changes the equation. Kash is changing the equation.
With the former CEO of Visa leading our board, and all the momentum we're seeing, we're confident that a new network can be built. Come chat with us to learn more if you think this is a worthy cause.
We currently use: GCE/AWS, Node.js, PostgreSQL, Cassandra, Docker, Kubernetes, Angular.js, React, Objective-C for iOS, Android We're looking for engineers with a demonstrated ability to learn and past experience building both scalable and maintainable software.
To apply, please visit http://withkash.com/careers. If you’re interested in the Toronto location, please apply to the Waterloo job posting and let us know.

#13 of 16Pixlee | San Francisco, CA/Toronto, ON, CA | Full Time | ONSITE
Pixlee is revolutionizing the relationship between people and brands. We help companies leverage customer photos/videos from social media to improve marketing.
We work with over 100+ customers, including top brands such as Converse, Kenneth Cole, UGG Australia, Mattel, Charlotte Russe, Marriott Hotels, and AMC Theatres, to drive higher online conversion, increase performance of owned media, and create a more authentic brand experience. A graduate of the Stanford StartX accelerator, Pixlee is an Andreessen Horowitz and XSeed Capital portfolio company. As a rapidly growing startup, we are constantly looking for talented people to join the Pixlee team and to help us revolutionize the intersection of big data and social media. At Pixlee we work hard, love to learn, and value teamwork and humility. We’ve got a big vision and we’re looking for game changers to join our team.
We look for talented, high-potential individuals who aren’t jerks. Our proposition to them is simple: Pixlee offers a unique opportunity to thrive and grow rapidly in a small-team startup environment operating at big-company scale.

#15 of 16Pivotal | ONSITE at many locations worldwide | Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Pre/Post-Sales Engineers, Ops, Sales
Pivotal's goal is to change the way the world makes software and we kinda sorta really mean it.
We value aptitude over alma mater, empathy over APIs. It doesn't matter whether your resumé says PHP or PhD: if you're smart, empathetic and know some stuff, we want to work with you.
We have offices in San Francisco, New York City, Santa Monica/LA, Palo Alto, Seattle, Beaverton, Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Atlanta, Austin, Dallas/Ft Worth, Toronto, London, Paris, Dublin, Tokyo, Sydney, Berlin, Singapore and Beijing, with more coming.
We're broken into three basic divisions: Pivotal Labs (yes, that Pivotal Labs), Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Pivotal Big Data.
-- 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 and it's still zooming up and to the right. Except for 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.
At our offices we have free breakfast, weekly tech talks, excellent benefits and competitive pay. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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?)
I may not be able to reply immediately, as I am just an engineer here.
