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

I am currently looking for my first few hires (part-time contract, possibly a larger full-time role depending on the match).

White Hat Academy teaches IT + cybersecurity skills through a Codecademy-like interface using virtual servers; 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 in at least one of the following areas:

  - Broad infosec background
  - Networking/sysadmin
  - Containers (Docker)

Some web development experience (Node) is a plus, but this would not be primarily a web dev role.

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 yet scalable enough to share openly on HN.

GiveCampus (YC S15) | Software Engineer | Washington DC, SF | ONSITE

GiveCampus is a Y Combinator-backed company that builds fundraising software for educational institutions. We're tired of schools being stuck with crappy software that never changes, and we're working to bring actual innovation to the space, and solve the hair-on-fire problems fundraisers face.

Michael Seibel, CEO of YC, expects us to be a household name in the next few years: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=13896296. We were also covered by the Washington Post last year (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/grade-point/wp/2016/04/1...), and have more than quadrupled the number of schools using us since it was published.

We're still a small team, so if you're looking to join a fast-growing startup and have an immediate impact, we're looking for both full-stack (Ruby on Rails, Postgres) and front-end engineers with at least 2 years of professional experience.

Reach out to careers@givecampus.com with a bit about why you're passionate about education, and a project you've working on that you're particularly proud of.

K&U is a pre-A-round security startup. We are trying to make the threat intelligence process run more smoothly and help organizations share threat data better. We're looking for a front-end developer to take over development of our applications UI (we're in-housing development of the app after contracting it out for about a year). The front-end is built with React/Microcosm/Material/Vis.js, and it talks to our backend using a mix of REST and WebSockets.

RINSE | San Francisco, CA, Culver City, CA, Washington, DC, Boston, MA | Full Time

Rinse is a technology-enabled dry cleaning and laundry delivery service. We've grown at double-digit month-over-month rates for about four years now, our business fundamentals are solid, and our customers love us! We have a number of open positions:

1) We're actively seeking Software Engineers of all skill levels, including those looking for leadership opportunity. We're primarily a Django / Python shop, but an individual with solid systems engineering fundamentals will succeed, regardless of technical specifics. It's a "target rich" environment with plenty of opportunity to make a direct and meaningful impact on the business! We're solving problems as varied as demand forecasting, route optimization, QR tagging for inventory control, SMS automation, and a suite of mobile apps for our customers and staff. See https://www.rinse.com/careers/software-engineer/

2) In particular, we're missing a Senior Front-End Developer to join the team and provide some leadership in the development of our suite of hybrid mobile apps and web tools. We've seen success building a React Native app for our customers, and we have sophisticated internal apps on Backbone.js. Our users are an interesting mix of newly-acquired customers, highly-engaged staff who need these tools to do their job, and vendors who may be the dry cleaners down the street from your house. See https://www.rinse.com/careers/senior-front-end-developer/

3) We're hiring our first Data Scientist to augment our data-driven management culture. The ideal candidate will span Data Engineering, Data Science, and Business Intelligence roles, and be familiar with enterprise data warehousing technologies. Important technical skills include SQL and Python, with Excel familiarity a big plus. We have an interesting and growing data set; this position will enjoy considerable executive visibility and a significant influence in the direction of the company. See https://www.rinse.com/careers/data-scientist/

4) Finally, we're aggressively recruiting for a Boston City Manager to found and lead our Boston operation. This is a great 'mini-startup' opportunity, with operational, management, financial, marketing, and business-development roles all rolled into one. This position enjoys significant support from our corporate team, and we have a good idea how to do that, since this will be our fifth city. See https://www.rinse.com/careers/city-manager-boston/

See https://www.rinse.com/careers/ for even more open positions, including numerous open marketing roles!

Want to join a rapidly-growing startup that actually has a sustainable business model? Perhaps your family ran a dry cleaner or laundromat when you were growing up? Delighted with our service? Let's talk!
