Nava | Washington DC & San Francisco SF | Full-stack Developers, DevOps Engineers, Software Engineers, Frontend Engineers, Designers| On-site - Full-time | $100k-$160k + equity

We're a small team (18 people!) of engineers, designers, and product builders that were brought in to help fix HealthCare.gov in the winter of 2013. Since then, we've been working with the government to improve the services HealthCare.gov provides. Our revamped Healthcare.gov application is used by millions, converts 35% better, and halves the completion time.

It turns out there’s a lot more to build, and it’s surprising how much can be done by a small group of empathetic people with a Silicon Valley mindset, deep technical experience, working closely with dedicated civil servants in government.

We’ve started Nava as a public benefit corporation to radically improve how our government serves its people, and we believe that the services our government provides should be clear and reliable. If you feel the same way, we'd love to hear from you at jobs@navahq.com

CallTrackingMetrics - we're a fast growing self funded startup.

If you like big data problems, visualization, scaling or having the freedom to hack - we'd be a great place for you. We're a small stable team, looking for self starters. My daily goal for our team is to always end the day making it better.

As an engineer founder, I'd say our greatest strength is our ability to listen to our customers and build a great product that solves their real problem. I started by answering every phone call and building features after each call. From there we've grown rather quickly but at a stable clip. We never raised money because we've never needed the money and I've always wanted to keep control over the direction and pace of growth.

After 6 years, I could never be happier with this decision. Our development environment is primarily RoR and JS.

If you are a former LivingSocial or RevolutionHealth member you'd know me and I believe appreciate our stack. We make heavy use of Elasticsearch, MySQL, Redis and Nginx+LUA. We're running most of our servers in AWS. Did I mention we're a small team, you'd have the opportunity to play a huge role.

[Edit/Location] - Severna Park, Maryland nicely between Baltimore and Washington and super close to Annapolis.

Baltimore, MD; Reston, VA (near Washington, D.C.); FULL TIME

- Java backend engineers - DevOps (Chef, Ansible)

Videology, Inc. - http://www.videologygroup.com/

We're in video advertising online and getting into TV as well now. Looking primarily for DevOps and server-side Java developers (if your Java is rusty but you're good, drop us a note anyway). I was working for a start-up called LucidMedia Networks (hence the "lmn" in the e-mail address below), which got acquired by Videology. Our stack is Java with Spring on *nix (Mac for dev, Linux on servers) with MySQL and some NoSQL stores on AWS. The Baltimore office also has a team on a large .NET stack as well (user-facing web app), but Java teams are spread across both offices. We have some big projects in the works to replace legacy services, integrate with big partners in the ecosystem, and scale up. We do business in North America, Europe, and Asia.

In general, our interview process starts with a take-home questionnaire to assess your skills. If that goes well, then we'll talk to you about it over the phone and ask some other details about you. If that goes well, we'll bring you on-site for an interview.

Contact me directly at sahil_lmn@yahoo.com (not using a company address to avoid spam).

I actually got hired through a HN "Who is Hiring" thread, and I hired 2 people through these threads. These things do work!

Truth Initiative | Washington DC | ONSITE Inspiring tobacco free lives.

Sr Software Engineer - PHP/Python (generally full stack, but light on the frontend development)

I posted this a few months back, but have yet to fill the position. We've been having difficulty finding PHP developers who are engineers and not wordpress/drupal tinkerers (no offense, just not what we're doing). We're looking for people who build applications from the ground up, fully understand and can leverage OO principles properly, and who stand out in one area, frontend, backend, sysadmin, or anything really.

Hiring process - Resume, 30 min phone call, Take home code exercise (2-3 hrs), in person interview with Dev Manager, Product Owner, and developers.

This position will join a recently expanded small team (was 3, now 5) of all senior level developers to work on the flagship cessation intervention of the foundation. With secure internal funding, we plan to overhaul the becomeanex.org website to make it a powerhouse in smoking cessation. We will be replacing/upgrading every aspect of the site including cms, community platform, web framework, design, tools, and content in order to leverage the knowledge we've gained in performing grant funded research on the platform over recent years. Truth is a great place to work (we have amazing benefits), that does great things.

Founders really invest in personal development, have weekly if not monthly happy hours, summer and winter weekend getaways, and the ability to WFH when necessary. Also, the projects are pretty engaging and theres hardly a dull moment. I'm on a small team working to revamp the entire US Immigration portal - high visibility, and direct impact on millions of lives. The White House has estimated that we'll make a 'direct impact on at least a million lives this year' alone.

We are hiring for a wide range of positions in software development. Looking for Ruby, Java, Python, .NET, mobile, and NodeJS engineers for a variety of experience levels. However, we have more demand for experienced engineers than junior engineers. Please reach out to me or someone in HR if this interests you. My email is glenn[dot]espinosa[at]excella[dot]com.

Washington, DC | Onsite | Lead Front End/Full Stack Engineer

There is this magical recent invention called the "video game." It's really fun. Kids spend hours playing these things at home. Really! There's also this terribly boring historical artifact called "the textbook" which hasn't been updated since Prussia was still a thing. It's still the way teachers cram knowledge into little kids. Barbaric.

We plan to combine the two and get those kiddos learning better. We ran a real academic study with the good folks at Vanderbilt to see if our prototype would work. It did. Awesomely.

We've assembled the equivalent of the A-TEAM to turn this into a billion dollar company. We're tired of building $50 and $60 million dollar companies (that's what our last two companies we started turned into).

Company is funded. Team is committed. Time to roll. One problem: I (the CTO) need 2-3 developers to build it. Help us solve this problem and you get a bunch of equity. Also, we get to revolutionize education together.

------------------------------ 
The regular blah blah:

We're looking for an experienced full stack or front end developer to join our veteran founding team. This is an opportunity to build an application from the ground up, so you must already have expert knowledge of patterns and best practices used for developing large, consumer-facing web applications. Additional requirements include:

- In-depth knowledge of modern JavaScript frameworks, ideally React and Node. - Experience with HTML5, CSS3, and common CSS preprocessors and frameworks. - Solid understanding of the full web technology stack (HTTP, cookies, asset caching, etc.). Bonus points for expertise developing REST APIs. - Ability to quickly define, develop, test, and deploy well-crafted, high-performing code. - Familiarity with modern software process including agile methodology, version control, and CI/CD. - Minimum 3 years commercial consumer software development experience. - An entrepreneur's enthusiasm, versatility, collaborative approach, and burning desire to solve any problem big or small.

Email your resume and/or questions to edtechgamingplatform@gmail.com

P.S. We’re still in stealth mode, still testing company names, no URL yet. You can check out the LinkedIn profiles of our CEO https://www.linkedin.com/in/vadim-polikov-6b2bba1 and CTO (me) https://www.linkedin.com/in/larrycynkin

Pivotal | ONSITE at many locations worldwide | Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Pre/Post-Sales Engineers, Ops, Sales, Admin

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 a list of 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 SF, NYC, Santa Monica, Palo Alto, Seattle, Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Atlanta, Austin, Dallas/Ft Worth, Toronto, London, Paris, Dublin, Tokyo, Sydney, Berlin, Singapore and Beijing. More offices open soon. Not all offices are hiring, but keep checking.

We're broken into three main divisions: Pivotal Labs (yes, that Pivotal Labs), Cloud R&D and Big Data.

-- Pivotal Labs helps clients to become better at product 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 R&D is where we build the best cloud platform available. We're the majority contributors to the Cloud Foundry project. 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.

-- Generally

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 NYC beer fridge has more IPA than I prefer but I guess that's life in paradise.

To see our open jobs and apply directly, follow this referral URL: http://grnh.se/xiy346

You can also email me at jchester+hn@pivotal.io to answer any questions.

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.
