Curalate is the leading visual commerce platform, connecting pictures, people and products. Our visual commerce software helps more than 850 brands tell their stories through imagery in order to drive engagement, build awareness, and form stronger, more meaningful relationships with consumers.
We're hiring developers, designers and product people with exceptional problem solving skills, creative out-of-the-box thinking, and comfort with quickly learning, evaluating, and deploying new technologies. We're not language zealots: we believe in using the right tool for the job, and are comfortable with a polyglot codebase. That said, today we lean on:
- Infrastructure: AWS, Asgard, Jenkins
- Datastores: Cassandra, MySQL (RDS), DynamoDB, Redis, Redshift, S3
- Data Processing: Storm, Lambda, Kinesis, Kafka, SQS, Spark
- Microservices: Finatra/Finagle, Scalatra
- Front-end: AngularJS, Less, Gulp, Bower
- Image Processing: OpenCV, Caffe
- Search: Elasticsearch, Cloudsearch

The ideal candidate is:
Looking for fantastic work/life balance - no stress, few meetings, no overtime, no assigned work, permanent 10% weekly research time
Loves pair-programming/TDD - is excited to work with a talented team - mentoring and being mentored 100% of the time
Tolerates occasionally grungy work needed to maintain an enormous C#/F# banking application used by the majority of the world's biggest banks
Comfortable working without a tech lead - we have no leads, every pair is trusted to design the best solutions without being told or supervised in a self-organizing team
Intrinsic desire to learn and improve - We are always learning and pushing into new areas: currently some are researching and writing proposals for an AWS-hosted version of our system. Several others are studying linear programming to better develop an in-progress optimization system using CPLEX. Others are studying dependent-typed programming with proof assistants in an experiment to formally prove parts of our system. A couple team-mates are doing broad improvements across our 4.6 million line codebase designed to make it more type-safe with fewer bugs.
Feel free to email me for more info at firstname.lastname@example.org. The interview process is whiteboard-free, no memorization, no algorithms. We pair program together working on several small projects for a day.
We are a small team that opens up positions rarely: this is the first position we've opened up in years without a waiting list of pre-screened candidates. The pay for the current position is average for Philly for a developer with 3-5 years of experience. If you've got a lot more and are a really great fit let's talk anyway and we'll see what we can do. Worst case you get on the waiting list for the next position ;)

TowerView Health is a rapidly growing startup in Philadelphia looking for a passionate, user-focused front-end engineer/contractor to help us scale up our software platform for medication management.
We help chronically ill patients manage complex medication regimens in their home. We partner with pharmacies that send patients customized pre-sorted medication trays that insert into our custom-designed smart pillbox. Our pillbox can sense when medication is removed and send patients and/or their caregivers automated reminders. Explainer Link: https://youtu.be/vWaBJVrSOiE
Our patients love us because we take away the complexity of managing medications and our customers love us because we keep patients healthy and out of the hospital. We sell to health insurance companies and hospital systems and are poised to scale to over 25K patients in the next 2 years. We've been recognized by Forbes and the Medical Design Excellence Awards, and are committed to providing patients peace of mind when it comes to their medication.
Experience in/with: Angular 1.x, Node, React, HTML, CSS
Projects we want to build:
* data visualization dashboards for nurses to target their care to patients
* easy-to-use web apps to streamline medication filling and reconciliation
* internal operations tooling to create seamless experiences for our patients
We're a small, flexible team looking for someone able to own projects from start to finish.
Shoot me an e-mail at email@example.com if you have any questions or just want to learn more about the company.

Sidecar builds tools to help retailers tackle the challenges they face in e-commerce advertising channels - primarily Google Shopping, Bing Shopping, and Facebook dynamic ads.

Retailers require automated, sophisticated, and ever-evolving technology to stay ahead.
Our Site Reliability team is critical to the successful delivery of Sidecar’s technology services to our customers. Site Reliability serves two primary functions: support of our production systems, and ongoing improvement of delivery practices. As a senior member of the team, you’ll be actively engaging with stakeholders across the business to ensure satisfaction with our technology services.
