White Hat Academy | web development, networking & security | Washington, DC | REMOTE

I am currently a startup of one, looking for my first few hires (part-time contract, possibly a large/founding full-time role depending on the match).

The platform teaches IT + cybersecurity skills through a Codecademy-like interface using containers; it also allows employers to automate technical interviews using custom assessments (similar to HackerRank, but with more full-system functionality instead of coding puzzles and limited simulations).

Looking for significant experience with more than one of the following:

  - Web development (Node)
  - Containers (Docker)
  - Networking (building secure virtual networks)

Email me (Fletcher) at our site (whitehat.academy) if this sounds interesting. Contact me for a demo link; it's live and functional, but not scalable or secure enough yet to share openly on HN!
