Factual is currently hiring engineers and data lovers of all levels in the SF Bay Area, Los Angeles, and Shanghai.
Factual’s location platform enriches mobile location signals with definitive global data, enabling personalized and contextually relevant mobile experiences. Built from billions of inputs, the data is constantly updated by Factual’s real-time data stack. We were named one of "50 Disruptive Companies in 2013" by MIT Technology Review. We have a terrific team that is still fairly small and an incredible CEO who was previously the co-founder of Applied Semantics (which was bought by Google and became AdSense). Factual has venture funding from Andreessen-Horowitz and our partners/customers include Bing, Apple, Facebook and Groupon.
There are many challenging problems to work on at all layers of the stack: data cleaning and canonicalization, storage, deduping, serving, APIs, improving data using machine learning, etc. A great example is one of our most recent products, Geopulse Audience, which stands at the intersection of high quality places data and large scale analysis of user geo-data: http://www.factual.com/products/geopulse-audience . If you love data, Factual is the place to be. Our main criteria are that you're smart and get things done, but you'll get bonus points for experience with Clojure (http://www.factual.com/jobs/clojure), machine learning, NLP, algorithm design, or Hadoop/Spark.
You can email me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org, or view our job postings here: https://www.factual.com/jobs#openings

Roku has lots of positions open right now, but this is my own group so I'm posting this one.
We've got a growing development office here in Austin focusing on the Roku TV product line. These are TVs made by our partners that have the whole software experience driven by Roku OS. Our group works on the whole system, including SoC and board bring-up, implementing TV-specific features (think tuners and HDMI sourcing and CEC and picture quality tuning), implementing streaming media technology and graphics, and working on optimizing the manufacturing and setup flow. We primarily work in fairly modern C++ with some ARM/MIPS/8051 assembly and some higher-level scripting. Experience with the TV technology stack and with embedded Linux for consumer electronics are big plusses, as well as experience building and working with secure systems.
We're also always looking for great QA engineers at all of our locations; we try to keep a fairly high ratio between dev and QA and work closely with them through our development process.
Our main company dev team is in Los Gatos, CA, and we've also got a big group in Cambridge, England and a smaller team in Shanghai, China that focuses on working with our factory partners.
https://www.roku.com/about/jobs/ has all of our job listings, including non-technical ones.
