Smarkets | Full Time | ONSITE (London, UK; now also Santa Monica, California)

We're a modern betting exchange, going technology first to enable proper price competition in a field of fat commissions. Join a small, agile, and fast-growing team, in our beautiful office in St. Katharine Docks. If our US location tickles your fancy, you get to help setting up a brand new office too.

Smarkets develops a reliable, low-latency, highly concurrent betting exchange based on trading exchange designs. We're also building a fast, modern web interface to allow for a smoother experience. Servicing our users is top priority.

The Smarkets platform is written predominantly on Python and Erlang, and relies heavily on asynchronous programming techniques. We use REST where we can. Life at Smarkets circles around people, version control, configuration management and automation. We can - and do - deploy to production several times a day.

Our entire production is in AWS. In fact, Smarkets was the first gambling operator under the Maltese regulator to get permission to run everything in the cloud. We push the envelope where needed and educate auditors when necessary.

We are looking for engineering talent in the following roles:

* Senior Infrastructure Engineer

* Frontend Software Engineers (London, Los Angeles); React knowledge is a plus

* Software Engineers (London, Los Angeles)

* Web Developer, to join our marketing team

* QA Engineer

If you like the idea of flat structure and practical engineering approach, see our jobs at https://smarkets.com/careers/ . (Some time ago I wrote an overview about our engineering challenges, which you can find at https://smarketshq.com/the-challenges-of-running-a-betting-e...)

Factual | Engineers and data lovers | Los Angeles, San Francisco, Shanghai | www.factual.com/jobs#openings

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.

Connexity | Santa Monica, CA or Camarillo, CA | Full-Time | Onsite

Join a small, tightly-knit Data Science team as we transform our data assets into valuable business products. Although this group of 4 has a great deal of industry experience, we've only worked together in this capacity for about a year. This means that there's still a lot of opportunity and green-field work ahead of us. The position could be described as a Sr. Data Scientist or Machine Learning Engineer. We work with billions of records per day and small hundreds of thousands of (messy!) features. We primarily use Scala/Spark and Python, but we employ R, Ruby, plain old SQL and other tools on a regular basis.

We'd like to find someone familiar with Bayesian systems, Random Forest and other classification. Experience in ad-tech, e-commerce or online retail is a plus, but we strongly favor hiring someone with the right qualities that transcend mere familiarity.

More than anything we value sound judgement. It's great if you have loads of tools in in your tool belt, but you really have to know when it makes sense to use them.

As you get involved with research or optimization work, we want to have confidence that you'll have the right intuition about what questions to pursue and what questions to defer. With our high transaction volume, hundreds of unique models in production and hundreds of thousands of potential features, discernment is an essential virtue. We'll always have 5x more questions and curiosities than we'll have time to chase down. We're looking for that person whose judgement is guided by experience possesses a knack for uncovering valuable, actionable insights.

Within our team I lean strongly toward the engineering side of the spectrum, but I'd be happy to have a conversation about our work. dlarsen@connexity.com If you're more comfortable going the typical HR route, I can probably streamline the first phases of communication.

Northrop Grumman Corporation | San Diego, CA| Full-time | Onsite

Northrop recently won two huge government contracts and is desperate to fill positions. My manager informed me that San Diego alone is looking to bring on 40 Software Engineers in the next month.

Experience in all these layers is not strictly required, but we do like to see experience working in more than one, as well as eagerness to work on projects that might slice through them all.

* You have product-driven software development experience using a modern, object-oriented language. Memory-managed languages are best -- .e.g. C#, Java, Python, Ruby, etc. We do most of our work in C#/.Net, but specific experience here is not required.

Cool stuff about TTD:

AIR.TV | Los Angeles | Full Time, Onsite | http://air.tv

AIR.TV is an online video platform and advertising solution.

We are a tiny team working out of a private office in Mid-City, with a line of customers deploying our product and eager for what we're building next. There is a lot of software being created by just a few people, and it's possible for you to make a huge impact. The pace is quick, but with lots of individual flexibility.

It's a very interesting time for us - our latest product is attracting customers faster than we can bring them online. Most ad tech is not defensible, but our product depends on our in-house video platform and our relationships with content producers. Those producers can finally monetize off-YouTube embeds, and at the same time we're bringing significant revenue to web publishers who have built large followings by curating and embedding viral videos.

Our tech stack currently includes: JavaScript (Angular, node.js), Python, BigQuery, and Ansible.

We are patiently searching for great engineers, particularly full-stack developers. If this sounds interesting, please contact us - careers (at) air (dot) tv
