Nava | Washington DC & San Francisco SF | DevOps/Infrastructure/Systems Engineers, Software/Fullstack Engineers | Product and Project Managers | On-site - Full-time | $100k-$160k+ + equity + benefits

We're a small team of engineers, designers, and product builders that were brought in to help fix Healthcare.gov in the winter of 2013. Our revamped application is used by millions, converts 35% better, and halves the completion time.

It turns out there’s a lot more to reimagine within government services, which is why we’re partnering with both the Department of Veterans Affairs and Medicare. With the VA, we are working to modernize their appeals system, making millions of veteran’s lives better through the process. Today, the average appeal takes 5 years to process; we can fix this. For Medicare, we are designing and building the architecture for Medicare's historic transition towards value-based care.

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

Mapbox | ONSITE in Washington D.C. or Berlin, Germany | Systems Engineer - Directions | Full-Time | http://www.mapbox.com/

The Directions team at Mapbox is looking for someone to help grow our navigation platform infrastructure. We have a core group working on routing algorithms and traffic data analysis, and we need help growing the infrastructure that runs that code (we develop and make heavy use of http://project-osrm.org/).

We use nodejs and AWS services extensively for our infrastructure, so familiarity with those tools is a plus, but by no means a requirement. We like adaptable people who aren't afraid to learn new skills, and bring new perspectives to the table.

A bunch more details at: https://www.mapbox.com/jobs/553439/ or hit me up with any questions.

Excella | Arlington, VA & Washington, D.C. | Full-time, ONSITE | https://www.excella.com/

We're a small-mid sized consulting company (~200 people) with a small company feel. 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 there's 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. If you don't like were immigration is going in this country, here's your chance to be on the front lines working to solve immigration issues.

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

Kentik | San Francisco | Full Time | REMOTE, VISA considered


Interested in building a distributed column-store time series database? Crafting a sleek, intuitive front-end? Evangelizing a breakthrough approach to network intelligence? This is your opportunity to get involved in a dynamic, rapidly growing San Francisco-based startup. Kentik Technologies is the creator of Kentik Detect, a big data SaaS for network traffic visibility, DDoS detection, and infrastructure optimization. Accessible via web portal, psql client, and API, Kentik Detect is the network visibility solution that our founders — former network operators from Akamai, Netflix, YouTube, and CloudFlare — always wanted but could never find. It lets network operators see complete traffic paths, find root causes for link congestion, reduce costs by peering with other networks, and know immediately when their networks are under DDoS attack.

In our first 18 months on the market we've landed 100+ customers including: Shopify, Pandora, DailyMotion, Yelp, Box, Neustar, Instart Logic, Cisco, Appnexus, and University of Washington plus top carriers, telcos, and hosting providers.

On the backend we're looking for folks with real-world experience building distributed systems in Go/C/C++. On the frontend we need experts at both client- and server-side JavaScript, with broad experience in monitoring, visualization, and building state-of-the-art Web applications. And in sales we need proven performers with a track record in highly technical markets (network-related preferred).

Mason | Senior Software Engineer (Backend, Frontend) | SEATTLE | http://www.bymason.com

WHO ARE WE? We're Mason, a YC (W16) company building mobile deployment infrastructure for companies to build solutions atop their own Android-based device ecosystem (think kiosks, package scanners, medical devices). We want to make something customers want and won't think twice about paying for. Check out our video: https://www.bymason.com/.

WHAT ARE WE BUILDING? Imagine a customer simply editing configuration to automagically build and deploy their own custom version of Android with their own in-house apps onto thousands of their own devices -- all actively tracked, managed and updated via dashboards. Our vision is to enable privately owned+managed device fleets with backing services.

WHO ARE YOU? In general, you're an engineer with 2+ years of experience and/or a CS background, and the right attitude (https://goo.gl/uPi6Y4). More specifically, we're looking for a backend and a frontend engineer. If the idea that you will experiment, learn, build, ship, and grow with the rest of us appeals to you, contact us! Note: Unfortunately we're unable to handle H1Bs at the moment.

WHAT WORK? Backend engineer: You'll architect, design and build our budding backend services. This involves picking the right technologies, implementation, testing, automation, scaling, and what not. We use Node.js and Python right now, but are open to change. More: https://anthology.co/job/j-4w10pxb3/senior-software-engineer Frontend engineer: You'll be our UI maven, building out our dashboards and visualizations that are critical for our product. More: https://angel.co/masonamerica/jobs/171409-frontend-developer...

WHY MASON? We're a small company aspiring to build very large things. We're 11 people now and looking to grow. Your perks: - This is not a "ground floor", more of a "foundation" opportunity. You will define, build and ship software that will shape the core Mason product. - We value diversity of thought, being and experience. - A fully stocked pantry, and an actual kitchen. - Dogs welcome.

WHERE? We're based in SEATTLE, one of the few YC-backed ones from out here. We have sweeping views of Cap Hill and Lake Washington (https://goo.gl/photos/9uwwVav54cS6qtGY8), and ample parking.

PROCESS: 30 minute chat (in person or Hangouts) -> offline coding and work sample evaluation -> on-site interview -> offer. We delete parts of this workflow if it's evident you could be The One. We do our best to respond to everyone individually no matter the outcome. Don't hesitate to write to us!
