We're first movers to bring the power of photo-realistic visualizations to the hands of consumers and our engineering team has been the driving force behind this Modsy magic.

PolySync Technologies | Chaos Engineer & Distributed Systems Engineer | Portland, OR | Fulltime | ONSITE/REMOTE | https://polysync.io

PolySync is working to build the most advanced safety-critical runtime for autonomous vehicles. Working with our existing customers across the industry (automotive OEMs, tier 1 & 2 suppliers, and silicon makers) PolySync is pioneering the best-practices for process, architecture, and implementation for software interfaces that tie together the sensor and control capabilities of autonomous vehicles. PolySync's engineering efforts focus on three key performance indicators: high-assurance, fault-tolerance, and mechanical sympathy. Join us and help shape the definition of safety and reliability in this emerging mobility marketplace. Email us at jobs@polysync.io to get things rolling (pun intended).


Chaos Engineer - We're looking for someone to help us advance the state-of-the-art in chaos testing and auto-remediation/recovery for our on-vehicle fail-operational runtime.

- Ideally you're especially skilled at characterizing the operational semantics of a physical system and measuring them against expected behaviors and the known limits imposed by physics.

- When you see something new your first thought is, "I wonder what catastrophic way this thing fails to do what it promises to do." and your second thought is, "How can I prove how broken it is and then fix it so that it's no longer lying to me?"

- The sight of a by-wire vehicle bucking about & spazzing out as its perception sensors and control actuators drop in and out of operation fills you with a sanguine zen instead of paralyzing anxiety.


Distributed Systems Engineer - We're looking for someone to help us improve the distributed architecture and implementation of our on-vehicle autonomy middleware.

- Ideally you maintain a healthy distrust of wall-clock time and your wristwatch displays a dotted-version-vector-set tracking all the instances in your life you received a response to the question, "Hey, what time is it?"

- You see the insights derived from the CAP theorem as living on a spectrum, but you're keenly aware of where the bright lines are drawn which keep you from offering specific guarantees, and you step over them with deliberate and well communicated intent.

- At all times you assume _any system_ is in a degraded state and you work well within the constraints of continual uncertainty while ensuring that high-level behavioral properties are stable.


We place a high emphasis on expressing and fostering a growth mindset both in the engineering team and throughout the company. We believe that cultivating improvement and growth as individuals & professionals, with the support of our peers and the support of company leadership, is the best way for us to improve and grow as a business.

If that paints a picture of how you approach things, then send us a message to start the conversation. jobs@polysync.io

We currently use C, C++, Python, Elixir, and Rust in our development efforts. Existing experience in any or all of those is helpful. A willingness to become an expert in them is essential.

PolySync Technologies' singular vision is to simplify and accelerate the development of self-driving cars. Founded in 2013, the company has developed a software platform that enables automakers and autonomous vehicle startups to seamlessly build, test, and deploy safe driverless vehicle applications. Our team of 26 is building the future of the software-defined car currently in Portland, OR and Detroit, MI.

Expensify - Portland, OR, San Francisco, CA Designer, Infrastructure, Customer Success

Hey there! Allow us to introduce ourselves. We are Expensify and we do "expense reports that don't suck!" (Google "expensify" to read more.) We're getting crushed under an ever-growing pile of super awesome work, and I need one bright soul to help us dig our way out. I can guarantee you fun, an amazing opportunity to learn, and the siren's call of distant riches. But only if you are all of the following:

- An incredibly hard worker, even when it's not so fun. There is a ton of work to do, and a lot of it downright sucks. After all — we do the sucky work so our customers won't need to. I need you to buck up and grind through server logs, user emails, source code, and bug reports, without complaint or supervision, and come back asking for more.

- A cool person to be with. Not a crazy party animal, just someone we can trust, rely upon, hang out with, bounce ideas off of, and generally interact with in a positive way, both personally and professionally. In fact, this is one of the most stringent requirements we have: would you be fun to hang out with day and night on some remote, exotic beach? This isn't a rhetorical question, either: every year we take the company overseas for a month and work incredibly hard while having a ton of fun. We've done Cambodia, Thailand, Mexico, India, Turkey, Croatia, Portugal and the Philippines. Our most recent trip was Uruguay in January, where do you want to go next?

- Super talented, in a general way. We're going to throw a ton of work at you of every possible sort, and you need that magic skill of being able to figure it out even if you have no idea where to start. On any given day you might bounce between super low-level coding, super high-level technical support, marketing-driven data-mining, updating our user documentation, inventing/designing/building some new feature, etc. This is not a code monkey job — you're going to be a full participant in the process, and you need to bring your own unique blend of skills to the table.

- Specifically talented in a programming way (or if not, shoot as an email anyways!). You can instantly visualize solutions to problems big and small. Your code is always clean, well commented, has good nomenclature and indentation. You can switch on a dime between C++, PHP, Bash, Cron, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Dwoo, SQL — not because you know them all, but because you're the sort of person who can just pick it up and figure it out. If you're this sort of person, you'll know what I mean. If not, then this position isn't for you. And there are a bunch more, but odds are if you got this far, nothing I can do would stop you from applying. That's a problem because while I know you are awesome, it's actually really hard and time consuming to find you in the midst of the literally hundreds of other applications I get from everyone else. So this is where I'm going to ask my first favor: can you make it really easy and obvious how great you are, so I don't accidentally overlook you?

There are probably many ways to do that. But the easiest way to do that is to check out we.are.expensify.com and send in an application(which you can find at http://we.are.expensify.com) or email us at jobs@expensify.com. We are excited to hear from you!
