Not sufficient but it is pretty much necessary.
Consider the threat environment: I have a laptop with a private/public key pair that gets me my main login on all services I run. It is possible that Server #1 can get compromised, immediately compromising the public key on it. I do not desire Server #2 to get compromised. No problem -- with only the public key, they can't compute my private key. Also, when I authenticate with them, I don't have to divulge my private key -- we can play a little game over the wire and my system provides an answer which would have been computationally unfeasible to calculate without having my private key handy.
There might be some minor data leakage if you name your keys something descriptive. Mine are typically no more sensitive than email addresses.
Not sure what others think?

You really just need to learn the subject matter, there is no magical wand for loading data from one to the other.
You understand one, then you understand the other, then you understand how to port and grapple with the data.
Just start reading.
"It's not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or when the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worth cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat. "

"I'm a farmer, I don't know how to speak to twenty people at one time, let alone a crowd like this. But I think you people have proven something to the world â€" not only to the Town of Bethel, or Sullivan County, or New York State; you've proven something to the world. This is the largest group of people ever assembled in one place. We have had no idea that there would be this size group, and because of that you've had quite a few inconveniences as far as water, food, and so forth. Your producers have done a mammoth job to see that you're taken care of... they'd enjoy a vote of thanks. But above that, the important thing that you've proven to the world is that a half a million kids â€" and I call you kids because I have children that are older than you are â€" a half million young people can get together and have three days of fun and music and have nothing but fun and music, and I God Bless You for it!"
Although I do not explicitly subscribe to "hippie" ideals, there is something very moving about the way he addresses a group of people often looked back upon in mockery or disdain - it reinforces that they not only truly believed in something, but that they most importantly then put said beliefs into action.

I highly recommend them.
You can get the first tutorial for free if you sign up for the raywenderlich.com newsletter. It assumes no prior knowledge of iOS or Objective-C and runs you through building a simple game. Then for 54$ you can get the three other tutorials.
The second tutorial shows you step by step how to build a checklist app (using Storyboards).
The third tutorial is about doing a simpler version of Foursquare (using Core Location, Map Kit, the camera and photo library, Core Data and Core Animation).
And in the fourth tutorial you'll learn how to make a clone of the default iTunes app by using the iTunes Store Search API (http://www.apple.com/itunes/affiliates/resources/documentati...) as well as AFNetworking.
Open source iOS apps: http://maniacdev.com/2010/06/35-open-source-iphone-app-store...
After that, go with the tutorials that everyone else is recommending.http://www.raywenderlich.com/tutorials
I found this one very useful to get started:http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-iOS-Development-Exploring-SD...
Take-away is; I started with the stanford tutorials (great!), but then just decided to dive in and learn along the way.
Stackoverflow or Google when you have specific questions.
When you say the Apple Developer resources are designed for a bit more smart audience I assume you mean already informed and knowledgeable about the basic APIs.
* Stanford's videos and homeworks * Ray Wenderlich's site * Big Nerd Ranch's iOS and Obj-C books
To shamelessly plug, we also run a full-time, in-person iOS course (http://hashmaplabs.com).
you should first read the objective-c primer.
You mentioned the apple docs feel complex to you but I'd honestly recommend truly taking your time and working through them as they really are the best.
An encrypted VPN would protects you from data sniffing done by your ISP. Obviously the VPN provider will be in a position to sniff your data. With the transparent proxy, your data is not encrypted and can be sniffed by both your ISP and your "VPN" provider.
Google open sourced vitess for scaling out and coordinating (sharding + replication, schema rollouts) mysql databases, it seems they use it internally: http://code.google.com/p/vitess/
P.S. Other organizations using Go: http://go-lang.cat-v.org/organizations-using-go
- programmers create new open source libraries for Go;- language got 1.0 version so it can be considered by enterprises for production;- programmers write articles about it so we have some buzz around it;- community grows with a set of books about Go.
So I think the overall popularity will grow.
It would be nice for Golang site to have some section about "companies using Go...".
You service may be useful for beginners but being a long time freelancer myself, I don't see why I should use this service (or to be fair any other service to "bid").
Or in other words gmail is the only webmail service that lets the sender hide their IP address.
Disadvantages / Problems:I'm sure there are some so feel free to add. The main obstacle that I can think of is that you might have to contact and create relationships with all the network providers around the globe, which may be a very political process. I don't have much knowledge in this area but maybe someone in the mobile industry could fill in the possible setbacks and problems related to the mobile industry.
Taking that I pay $79/yr for Amazon, with free movies, tv + shipping, then I spend about $40/mo on movies, music and books at Amazon, then I'd spend $50/mo.
Of course there are people who will spend more, and people who will spend less. I like to think of my spending as conservative. And since I get my TV over the air, I can't fathom for a second why anyone pays for TV.
I say this because apart from the dollar price, the biggest cost to me is my time and effort to switch. You do a good job of conveying that Supportfu will probably make my life easier once I've started using it, but I want to know what it will take to get there.
1 - You should show more screenshots in the home page, e.g. what the 'submit a ticket' page look like?
2 - Don't use hand-writing style typefaces in the screenshots, that's difficult to read for none-native English speakers (me included).
3 - You might want to check out Freshdesk, I was planning to use it for LIVEditor (http://liveditor.com) after checked a handful online support services, but gave up because the performance (pages took near 10 seconds to load).
Just my 2 cents.
I set up the email forwarding and tested by sending an email to that account so it would appear as a ticket. But I never got the email into my supportfu account... Also i agree that there is no clear call to action on where / how to sign up.
Good luck to you!
Also, I don't see any information regarding how it actually integrates with my site (ie. how do users actually submit a ticket?)
This is just inexperienced developers (Â«it's "encrypted" using base64 - we're fine!!Â») that had a "great idea" (= launch games from an embedded IE control) that has, kinda, backfired.
The sad thing is that it would be trivial (I'm using the word "trivial" here are I have implemented something like this just last friday in 3 hours) to add a signature to that command line and only execute signed command lines - I mean, these Games require an internet connection anyways, so there's nothing stopping them from serving the launcher from somewhere in the web and have a private key there to do the signing.
Next time I want to play an Ubisoft game I'm just going to pirate it.
EDIT: I buy 99% of my video games through Steam, and when the games I get through Steam want to use their own launcher (play, windows live games, or EA's Origin, for example) I always get peeved.. to find out it allows arbitrary remote code execution is absolutely infuriating.
EDIT: Oh, btw, I'm using Opera 12.
EDIT: Protect yourself (in Opera, at least) by going to Settings -> Preferences(menu option) -> Advanced(Tab) -> Downloads(left menu bar) -> Search for "uplay" and delete the associated row.
As-is, he just seems like a raging hacker who loves attention and doesn't care if thousands of unsuspecting users get their credit card details stolen by malware authors. I must be misunderstanding something, yeah?
Here's taviso's mail on seclists: http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2012/Jul/375
I hope ubisoft reacts quickly.
Version 2.0.4 - Monday July 30th 2012 - "Fix addressing browser plugin. Plugin now only able to open Uplay application"
Battlefield 3 also installs it's plugin ("ESN Launch Mozilla Plugin") in all browsers on a pc. It's capable of running EA's Origin service, so does it present the same threat?
Edit: Other comments suggest there's a NPAPI plugin as well so it's definitely intended for use on the web.
Also in what sense is this a rootkit? Is this purposely hidden from the list of IE addons or something?

As a hacker you may be able to judge market bets as well as or better than many investors. E.g. I think HN readers knew Dropbox was onto something before most investors did. So if you go wrong it will be in judging founders. For many hackers, especially the unwordly sort, it's hard to distinguish true Bill Gateses from mere good talkers.
I wish I could offer some advice about distinguishing, but that would take a whole essay. The best simple hack I can think of is completely self-serving, but I'll offer it anyway: piggyback on our filter. YC specializes in distinguishing between genuine Gateses and good talkers. We're occasionally fooled, but far less often than a typical hacker looking for a job would be.
- Are you profitable? If so, for how long? - How long until you need another round of funding? - Are you planning on hiring more staff? If so, for what positions? - How do you gauge promotions/raises? - Who will my coworkers be? - What is the office setup like? - What hours will I be working? - How much time is spent on maintenance vs. new development? - Is your code unit tested, and do you have version control? - Who do I report to? - Is there a vision for where the company will be in # years? - Ignoring equity, is my compensation fair? - How fast is the company growing? What are some recent milestones? - Is the office located in a place that's easily accessible? - What will I be working on after my first month here? - How often do you have meetings? - How do you manage deadlines? - How long have you (the interviewer) been at the company? - What attracted you (the interviewer) to the company? - Why did you choose the current technology stack you're using? - Are you having any issues with stack? - How much of the code is understood by >1 person?
How tight is their hiring process?
Hiring is one of the most important tasks of a startup. As the business grows, it identifies new things it wants to get done and eventually that means adding people.
Watch your interactions with a prospective employer carefully. Are they swift in communications to schedule your interviews? Do they seem prepared when you show up to talk? Is their follow up clear and prompt after your first meeting? A startup with their shit together should be able to go from phone screen to signed offer letter inside of 7 - 10 days.
Any longer than that suggests sloppy management, poor communications skills or lack of focus. Or worst of all: lack of clarity/urgency around the initiative they're hiring you for.
If their hiring process is sloppy, it's a safe bet you're in for a bad time.
If you're looking at the 50-100 range then the startup is obviously more mature and the nature of the company isn't as important so much as the work you'll be doing. If you're looking to be hire 1-10 then the company itself is a lot more important, especially the founders.
Let's assume you're looking to join a smaller team. If that's the case then I'd concentrate almost everything on the founders. Ultimately it comes down to trust. Do you trust these people to focus on important matters? Do you trust them to be fair and mature about tough decisions? Do you trust them to treat you and your coworkers right?
For many people this can be a difficult thing to gauge and it's made especially more difficult since the founders will be actively trying to sell you and therefore make themselves look better.
Ultimately there are some high level filters that can help carve out a lot of options and save you a lot of time. And these are actually the same kind of filters that investors apply:
Are they a YC company?
What is the experience of the founders? Have they done a startup before? Do they have an "in" for the space?
Does the company have traction?
The reason why I put YC company first is that pg and co are going to be better than most people at picking winners. So if you limit your choice to YC companies then you're going to have a much lower chance of joining the wrong company. I say that from some bias as being a founder of a YC company, but also because I've met many of the founders of other YC companies, and it's just crazy how many of them are awesome and trustworthy.
The best scenario you can find (a truly rare gem of an employer), whether startup or established company, is where everyone is on the same page. Vision should be clear, strengths should be accurately gauged, and problems should be acknowledged and well-understood. You should be able to share what you've learned from the workers with management (and vice versa) without any looks of shock, fear, or panic. Overall visible stress should be almost non-existant.
The worst scenario is where the company's leadership lives in its own reality and blames any issues on workers or outsiders. Run from these employers; no amount of money is worth working for such people. The easiest way to test for this case is to just talk openly about what you've learned about the company and how the future looks given their strengths and weaknesses. Watch out, in particular, for the hushed phrase "I shouldn't tell you this, but..."
Realistically, though, you'll find a lot of employers somewhere in between. Just know that the distance between the reality of leadership and worker is going to be proportional to the pain you'll feel working at that employer and that such distance tends to increase over time.
Working for a short period doing something you love in a company that ultimately fails is better than doing something you don't love for 30 years. You can always get another job.
Interviewers leak. Sometimes they start on anecdotes. Anecdotes are solid gold. Give some of your own if it seems appropriate.
I've turned down lucrative jobs because of the "hilarious" anecdotes of a CEO changing his mind weekly.
This might be your first startup, but it likely won't be your last - and the skills you get from your first startup will affect the jobs you'll be able to land and the projects you'll take on in the future. So the most important factor is the details of what you'll be doing and how much doing it will make you a better programmer.
If you optimize for the startup's overall potential but spend your time there doing stuff you think is trivial, you're going to be really unhappy if the startup doesn't work out. If you optimize for challenging, enjoyable work that turns you into a programming badass, if the startup doesn't work out, you're still going to be a badass.
And then you have to think a lot more about the team/culture fit since you will spend way more time with the team than any investor.
Another is: Will they actually pay you. or does the contract they give you talk about "binding arbitration"? That's a huge red flag of a failing company looking for a way to cheat its employees and is doubly bad for a woman or minority jobseeker since she would not be able to sue them for sexual harassment or racist promotion practices. If you care about the company obeying the law on any matter affecting you, you will want to retain your right to sue them in a court of law.
An employee stock plan might be seen as another sign of poor financial status since companies in poor shape will look to their employees as a last-ditch funding source. However, this conclusion is more coincidental than automatic. Many healthy startups have an employee stock plan and getting into one early can make you rich if the company strikes it big.
You will want to be paid by the hour, rather than a salary, so they cannot work you more than 40 hours a week without paying you overtime.
As for the company culture, you may be able to get a sense of it by simply keeping your eyes open. Is there a dress code or are people in T-shirts? Is everything neat and tidy or do people have toys at their desks? These are things you can see for yourself. As for the core principles, you can simply ask.
You will also want to consider whether you will be happy and productive in the position, and if you can see yourself making a positive contribution to the company and its customers.
- Vulnerability (openness) - Forgiveness - Passion (for both the company and life as a whole)
- What was their first job? - Where are their "people" from? (Family, ancestors) - What do they dislike most about their industries culture?
1. Do you believe that their first product/service is going to be really popular if they do it right?
2. Can you want to live and work with the current company?
If the answer to either of these is no, or even meh, politely disengage and find something else.
If the question more is "What startup might be successful?", team is important, fundraising helps a lot and your instincts are frequently correct.
Make sure the founders / executive team are on the same page. Make sure they have the same vision about what they are looking for in a new employee. If you pick up on signs that they are not quite in unison then your time working at their company will probably not be happy.
Ask yourself what is so special about the founders. What special skills or knowledge do they bring to the table that will crush the competition? If you don't think they have an edge then don't join their team. Try to find founders with some type of deep domain expertise.
As an employee you are investing your time in a company. Ask yourself if you want to work day in and day out with the people who are interviewing you. If you get a bad personality vibe from the people you're talking with then don't join. All personal conflicts will get blown up in the pressure cooker startup atmosphere.
Take this into consideration: remember that all that glitters is not gold. The odds of success are decidedly not in your favor at a startup. Startups are the trendy thing to do (especially here on HN) but know that they have their downsides just like any other company. Often times the downsides to startups can be particularly brutal. Good luck!
My first job out of college was at a startup. The founders were reasonable people who were heavily influenced and invested in by a delusionary, who saw their company as a vehicle to realize his "vision" of how technology should work. As a result we never really managed to grow beyond a couple of million in revenue, and that mostly from what amounted to R&D outsourcing from large firms with technically naive execs. Said delusionary repeatedly vetoed our attempts to make our product more relevant to a wider range of customers since it would compromise his vision. I bailed out of frustration, and a year later one of our customers just outright bought the firm to acquire the founders. I heard the delusionary was very satisfied with his exit. :p
Things to consider: -The leadership, is it someone you want to work for and if multiple people do they get along with one another. -How much you believe in the idea, if you're not all to crazy about the ideas you come across in your job search then you may be better off applying for a more stable company.-Their funding, if they are funded that makes it easier for them to pay you continuously.-Their offer to you, the questions that matter with this is how much of both cash and equity will you be receiving, how much you believe in the idea and what you believe that stock will be worth later on, and what your base salary is. If you're not head over heals in love with the idea and whole heartedly believe it's the next big thing with the original founder already having done market research/testing to prove that customers want the product then don't be the technical cofounder of a 'potentially' successful company.
1. Runway - how much runway do they have until they run out of money assuming revenues will not increase (which of course they should)
2. Culture - does it seem good? Good gauge - are people there even when they don't have to be.
3. Compensation - does it pay enough to make your comfortable and have upside in stake? If so, raises don't matter as much, make your own raise by adding value to your stake.
It would probably be a good idea to ask yourself - are you willing to invest in this company? If you are, is it for giggles or a future?
I'd also say if you are looking to join a startup, pick one that is incubated (ex. ycombinator, google umbono etc.)
2. Can you live with these folks 24/7?
3. If things go south do you feel like you were better for the experience?
"When people are financially invested, they want a return. When people are emotionally invested, they want to contribute."
@simonsinek ht: @danmartell
2. Culture - Is this a culture where you can grow?
3. Belief - Do you clearly believe the value proposition the company is trying to build?
4. Pay - Will you be comfortable at that pay for ~3 years while you help build the machine?
5. Investment - Will the equity trade be worth your time, roughly ~4-10 years?
If you can answer the questions above, you'll be way ahead of most people when evaluating startups. These are the things that went through my mind when I ditched a larger company for a little unknown startup at Pier 38 which now has become +100 people with an amazing product. I haven't left and its been 3 years. I still trust, believe, and comfortable enough to keep moving along.
The most important point in an startup is the team, the idea can be marvelous but without the perfect team... it's just shit
This was a WordPress blog, so I had it configured to use W3 Total Cache, AWS Cloudfront as my CDN, nginx as my webserver, APC for php opcode caching.
My current box is a pretty beefy dedicated, but I used to run the exact same config on a 512mb Linode instance. It handled front-pageing just fine (similar traffic stats).
Basically, cache everything you can, look up performance tuning guides for your webserver, disable keep alive.
As for withstanding the hit, with your config, I can't help.
* Cluster your processes to make the most of CPUs
* Try Joyent cloud or AWS.
* If what ereckers says (10K visits) it's really not a big deal. You can run stress tests to verify.
Hope this helps
Job title: Scary Story Told To Young Software Developers By Their Parents To Get Them To Go To Bed On Time.
We break software. To do it, in the past year, we've filled up Riak clusters with raw HTTP requests, built a large-scale source code cross referencer for 30 languages, wrote and rewrote a debugger core in Ruby, wrote another in Go, built software fuzzer farms with Redis, tested 3 different proprietary trading protocols, broke sandboxing schemes, built tools to attack chipsets, broke numerous cryptosystems, and gave several talks at Black Hat.
Our customers are excellent; they include Github, 37signals, and numerous YC companies.
Our team is even better. What are we looking for? Here's my first interview question: "what is your research project going to be for us?" Does this stuff interest you? We should talk. WE LOVE TALKING TO DEVELOPERS. You don't have to be a "rock star ninja shaolin grandmaster security pro", wear the right jeans, or listen to Animal Collective (please don't listen to Animal Collective). We just want you to be able to learn fast and not get scared when you're faced with wacky systems in languages you've never used and there's a clock ticking.
Downsides: Not building things people want. In fact, building things people fear and loathe. Also, not being able to wear silver, eat garlic, or enter houses without express invitation.
Perks: Infinite free tech books, medical, dental, vision, 401k.
If I were looking for a day job, I wouldn't be looking for a day job any more: they're friendly, happy people who get social license to join the Dark Side, do smart stuff all day, and then go home while it is still light out. - HN:patio11
More than you ever wanted to know about our recruiting process:
It doesn't have ads or recruiters. Details are here: http://jobs.usethesource.com/hrdoc
Who we are
DocumentCloud (http://www.documentcloud.org/home ) is a web based platform allowing journalists to upload, analyze, annotate, and publish primary source documents. We want give journalists the tools to show their audience their source material, not just tell them about it. In addition to the newsrooms worldwide who use DocumentCloud, our open source software projects (see: http://github.com/documentcloud ), such as Backbone.js, Underscore.js, Docsplit, and Jammit, are relied upon by companies such as LinkedIn, Walmart, Foursquare and more. DocumentCloud is run by Investigative Reporters & Editors (http://ire.org ).
What DocumentCloud is building
- DocumentCloud is growing fast, and we're looking to accelerate that pace by expanding our tools into other languages beyond English. In the next year we'll adapt our platform to accommodate multi-language OCR, search indexing, and entity extraction tools.
- DocumentCloud always looks for new ways to present documents and engage readers. We are extending DocumentCloud's document viewer and annotation tools so that readers can make their own comments and notes on documents.
Who we're looking for:
Things we like and hope you like too!
Literate programming; Extracting libraries from app code; Polyglot programming; Web standards; Journalists; Natural Language Processing
You can email us at email@example.com
I've mentioned before that we have a few engineers who work half-time-ish (and do their own things the rest of the time) and it got some positive feedback: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3850480
We're ready to hire a couple more in this vein, so if it sounds interesting let me know!
Advantages for you:
- you get 2-3 extra weekend days for fun and profit
- we provide health insurance and all that jazz
- if some weeks you don't have lots to do and want to work more, and other weeks you have lots to do and want to work less, we can be flexible
- we're profitable and growing! so if you decide "wow I really love Verba and want to spend every waking moment there" we can make that dream come true
Advantages for us:
- you have more time to learn new things, meet new people and generally be a friendlier, happier, more knowledgeable person in our workplace
- we can hire faster with less anxiety (instead of the "gulp i just committed $100k/yr" feeling, we have the "smaller gulp i just committed $50k/yr" feeling :)
- you get to be a part of what we're doing, we get to hear about all the cool stuff you're doing, and that can only lead to good things for both of us
Anyway, I've included our spiel and "what we're looking for" summary below, so shoot me an email if you're interested (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The college textbook market is currently being disrupted. Verba helps college bookstores transform themselves so that they a) understand and embrace the power of the nets, b) become agents of change in the textbook industry instead of agents of reaction and c) continue to make a healthy profit.
We're a B2B company working with around 225 colleges and universities, and we're looking for people familiar with Ruby, Rails, MySQL and JS who can help us grow faster. We (thankfully) don't have too many scaling problems, but we have a ton of opportunities (product and partner-based) that we could move on much faster with a few more hands on deck.
The ideal person has strong Rails knowledge, solid testing practices, a good head for architecture and knows enough JS to help out on front-end.
Be sure to check out our website (http://www.verbasoftware.com) so you can read all about our current products and hear people say nice things about us.

To give you an idea of what we do, these are some of the projects that involved me at Altera :
* Designed and implemented a high performance on-chip network that's used in thousands of routers, base stations, and switches around the world. * Created a hardware/software instrumentation framework in a mix of Java, C++, C, and Verilog. This is the foundation for all the debuggers at Altera. * Modified the GCC toolchain to add support for Altera's processors, like our NiosII soft processor. * Implemented a GDB Server from scratch in Java. * Defined and implemented the pieces of an ARM CoreSight debug subsystem. * Implemented infrastructure used in a C-to-Gates compiler. * Spent hours hacking away with the tools and many of the available development boards.
Our mission is to provide a world-class education to anyone, anywhere. We're scaling quickly.
Our students answer over 2 million math problems per day (over 600M total so far), all generated by our open source exercise generation framework (http://github.com/khan/khan-exercises), and our videos (now from a variety of authors including Sal) have been viewed over 145MM times. We're tracking all that data and using it to customize each student's experience. We could use your help.
Working for Khan Academy is one of the highest educational impact positions you can imagine and we've been called by Wired one of the best places to work in Silicon Valley: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4157078.
We're hiring designers and all types of devs -- mobile, frontend, backend, whatever you want to call yourself. Big plans ahead.
Custora (YC W11) is a customer analytics tool that helps retailers earn more from happier customers.To be a little more specific, we can point to a single retail customer and paint a meaningful portrait with his data: How much he'll spend, how often he'll make purchases, what types of products he's inclined to buy, his predicted likelihood of returning, and more. Custora also integrates with email marketing providers and customer support systems to fuel a seamless, iterative flow of insights to actions.
From Fab.com to Etsy, some of the fastest growing and respected names in retail are using Custora on a daily basis.
Who We're Looking For
We're looking for a developer to join our core team. Our web stack is Ruby on Rails, and our analytics are done in R. Experience with these technologies is a plus, but we're open to sharp developers with experience building products for the web in general.
Where We Are
Location-wise, we're in Brooklyn, NY. We love it. Progress-wise, we're a YC company from Winter 2011. We've recently been featured in the New York Times, GigaOm and BetaKit, and in the last 2 months we've had more signups than in the previous 10.
Day to DayHere's a taste of what happened last month:
Aaron implemented a Dirichlet Latent Class Multinomial to power customer archetype analysis based on customer purchasing behavior.
Martin made dramatic improvements the email marketing part of the product. He made it easier for our clients to launch multiple email tests in parallel, and added four new email providers to our growing list of integrated partners.
Jon and David worked together to completely redesign the interface of the application. We moved from an interface that focused on browsing through dashboards to one that delivers answers to specific questions.
Outside the office, Corey and Dave manned a booth at a big e-retailer conference and developed a Blackjack-style Custora game to play with prospective clients.
What We Offer
Our compensation is competitive with anyone on the market. Since you'll be a core member of the team, meaningful equity is part of the package. We offer comprehensive health coverage, including a dental and vision package. Lunches are paid for and we usually eat as a team. We do happy hours at least twice a month and play bocce ball competitively (sort of). Our vacation policy is based on trust â€" take what's needed and keep the rest of the team up to speed.

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
We're not technically a start-up, but our small group inside CHOP is striving to be a startup within a larger organization. See my interview at OSCON for why you might want to work for us: http://youtu.be/wzcIOMp6ZKw
We are seeking an experienced software development professional to join our small, highly focused, entrepreneurial R&D application development group within the Center for Biomedical Informatics (CBMi) at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. As a member of our team, your technical expertise can have an immediate impact on patient care through our mission to accelerate pediatric research with novel applications and data solutions. Furthermore, your work here has the potential to impact the future of healthcare through our research into software solutions supporting genome-enabled personalized medicine. Our research mission fosters an environment where creativity and exploration of new technologies are promoted and encouraged.
Our dynamic academic research environment demands an individual with exceptional written and oral communication skills who can rapidly translate requirements from a variety of disciplines into intuitive, high quality software solutions that support our strategic vision.
Candidates with prior experience in the biomedical field, especially using highly complex genomic data and/or data from electronic health records are very desirable. Participation in one or more public open source projects is an added bonus.

My team is working on monitoring and alerting for all of the different services at Twitter. Zipkin (https://github.com/twitter/zipkin/) is an example of the kinds of tools our team is building right now. The two central components are a dashboard/charting monitoring service as well as our own alerting system.
Most of our infrastructure challenges stem from the sheer number of writes we need to deal with as well as the temporal nature of what we're doing - all of our writes need to happen within certain time periods and reads have to be consistent within certain time-frames to avoid engineers being woken up at 4am due to incorrect data from a dirty read. Given that we're the service which observes all the other critical components - our reliability requirements are also a huge challenge.
I think the biggest benefit of working on our product team is that you a level of autonomy which is hard to find on a user-facing product. So if you're the creative type who doesn't want to be micro-managed or told where to push those pixels, I think this is a really good gig.
A systems position: https://twitter.com/jobs/positions?jvi=ospeWfwL,JobA dataviz position: https://twitter.com/jobs/positions?jvi=og12VfwY,Job
The dataviz position doesn't accurately reflect the open rec we have for my team, so don't worry if you don't match the skills exactly.
I work on both infrastructure and product for the positions I described, so if you're interested you can send your resume to me directly at david @ dmclaughlin.com to speed up the process.

Transcriptic: Core Developer or Automation Engineer
Transcriptic is the "Amazon Web Services" for life sciences. Rather than carry out wet-lab experiments by hand, researchers can code up (or visually configure) their experimental protocols and then run them in Transcriptic's central, highly automated 'biocenter' in an on-demand way. Customers have no upfront capital costs and pay for only what they use. Life science research today is incredibly slow, error-prone, monotonous, and expensive with researchers spending many hours a day every day just moving small volumes of liquids from one place to another. We're building a long-term company to completely change the way life science research and development is done.
We're looking for highly talented full-stack web developers as well as combined background EE/CS engineers for automation integration and development.
We're a very small startup (you'd be #3), but well funded and have customers. You'd be able to work on interesting science and hard technology in a really small, all technical team with lots of freedom and resources.
A biology background is preferred but not strictly necessary for outstanding people. The codebase is mostly Ruby and Scala, with some Python.

Android specifically, but also anyone who really loves what we're doing and wants to make a difference in general Internet search.

The Stationary Storage team at Tesla Motors is growing and we're looking for a smart and versatile developer to add to the team. Our current team is very small and we're looking for a hand-on, generalist who will get things done. You will work on a variety of subsystems, some are existing codebases (with other users and developers) that need modification for our application, while other projects are new and specific to our group. The team is small and you will be able to shape the direction of the product and a large amount of ownership of the firmware and software that is specific to this application ranging from architecture to implementation to testing.
Here are some of the projects that we see coming up soon:
* Embedded C on a microcontroller with an RTOS
* Communication over CAN, Ethernet, zigbee, and GSM networks
* Machine learning for analyzing and modeling energy systems (We've been using Matlab and Go, but would love to explore R, Hadoop, and AWS)
* Design and evaluation of algorithms for energy and power markets (think Quant algos but controlling real hardware and moving energy instead of money).
* Designing a robust system to control distributed resources
* UI for customer facing control and data viewing
* Development of parsers/compilers/code-transformers/DSLs for templating and code generation.
While this isn't the typical HN job, we could see many of these projects appealing to people who are excited about at least several of:
* Green Energy
* Physical hardware
* Machine learning/algos for people who don't want to work in Finance
* A variety of languages and technology (in the last 6 months I have used C, Python, Perl, Go, Matlab/Octave, Tcl, VB, and in my small circle people are using Ruby, Java, php, R and probably others.)
We are a small team working on energy and designing physical hardware (which you will control!), so our internal conversions have as much to do with â€śwatt-hoursâ€ť and â€śtooling costsâ€ť more than â€śclosuresâ€ť and â€śappsâ€ť.
Requirements (other things we're more flexible about):
* Comfortable with embedded C
* Degree in Engineering or experience with Energy
If you are interested in this job please email email@example.com
There are also many more positions available in other groups at Tesla Motors, which you can see here: http://www.teslamotors.com/about/careers

Hiring for developers, operations, and lots of other roles (including non-technical), see http://www.etsy.com/careers/
Etsy is the world's marketplace for handmade and vintage goods. To give you an idea of our scale, last year Etsy sellers sold over $500 million worth of goods on Etsy. We have 17 million active members, and do 1.4 billion pageviews per month.
Individual developers at Etsy deploy code to the live site around 30 times per day, so if you want to move fast at scale, this is the place for you. We have an amazing devops culture and an amazing engineering team that makes all this possible. Check out http://codeascraft.etsy.com/ and http://www.slideshare.net/etsy to learn more about how we do what we do.
We have big challenges, from making sense of all of this data to stopping fraud to helping our sellers be more awesome every day.
Again, check out our positions here: http://www.etsy.com/careers/, and feel free to email me directly at email@example.com. I am a developer, not a recruiter, FYI, and I promise to answer any questions you have honestly (unless you ask something that's privileged, obviously.)
Remote work is possible for exceptional candidates who are US citizens and living in the US ('exceptional' meaning you are a great engineer and have lots of machine learning/data extraction/NLP/etc. experience that is relevant to what we do).
Factual's vision is to be an awesome and affordable data provider that enables developers, startups, and big companies to focus on innovation instead of data acquisition. 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 Facebook, Yelp, Foursquare, Trulia, and Newsweek.
There are many challenging problems to work on at all layers of the stack: data cleaning and canonicalization, deduping, storage, serving, APIs, improving data using machine learning, etc. 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, machine learning, NLP, algorithm design, or Hadoop. Our LA office is our headquarters and our Palo Alto office recently opened so new hires would have a huge impact on the culture there.
You can email me personally at leo -at- factual.com, or view our job postings and apply directly via Jobvite:

Embed.ly (YC W10)
We make an API for embedding all kinds of content from the web.
Think of sharing a link on Facebook or Google+; that's the basic functionality that we've been providing to our users. We're more than that, though, and we're looking for a couple people to help us take it to the next level.
We're hiring for two positions right now:
Natural Language Processing / Machine Learning Engineer:
As I mentioned above, we're looking to take our API to the next level. NLP/ML is going to be a large part of this. We have access to a fantastic amount of data, and we want someone to help us leverage it.
Right now we have some NLP/ML stuff dealing with textual content extraction. We want to do some semantic analysis and categorization to come up with information that is useful to our customers.
Our team is still small, fewer than 10 people, so you'll mostly be doing your own driving when it comes to your projects.
Despite the small team, we have a serious customer base, and are actually making money.
We aren't able to sponsor candidates from outside the US, sorry.
Get in touch! firstname.lastname@example.org
Designers | Community Managers | Developers
Four out of five people report a negative experience when buying a new car and most new car sales departments lose money. Tred helps solve these problems by allowing consumers to configure the perfect new car, then working with dealerships to find it at a great price.
We are pre-release, angel-funded, and backed by some of the biggest names in the industry, including the former CEO of General Motors.

With 50% of traffic is now driven by social media, and referrer information increasingly useless with mobile clients and HTTPS, traditional web analytics are no longer working. awe.sm is building full-featured social media conversion tracking and analytics.
Right now and in the medium term, we're providing immediate value to our customers by giving them firm numbers on the ROI of their social media efforts, in terms of dollars, signups, pageviews or any other metric they pick. Our APIs allow app developers to easily integrate social features into their products and easily present the analyzed data back to their own customers, without having to build their own processing clusters and workflows.
Longer term, we want to know what's important on the Internet, and we believe that instrumenting social behaviour is the way to do that.
We're looking for back-end engineers who are interested in learning how to handle large volumes of data for aggregation, geo analysis, and graph analysis, in close to real time. Our stack is mostly PHP and Ruby right now (I know, I know) but we believe in simple parts loosely coupled, and also in picking the right tool for the job, so you genuinely have the power to shape the stack you work on.
We're also looking for front-end developers to continue to build out our GUI, which is a backbone JS app built on top of the same APIs our customers use.
We're 13 people right now. We have a cool new office with awesome views ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/seldo/6326815086/in/photostream ) in the heart of the Mission. We have catered lunches, and full health, vision and dental coverage. We use an IRC server for team communication and are agile in the sense that we move quickly and react fast, not in the sense of having attended an overpriced training course.
Academia.edu is a platform for academics to share research papers. The company's mission is to accelerate the world's research.
It's widely held that science is too closed, and too slow. We are trying to change that. We believe that faster sharing of research will lead to an acceleration in research innovation: faster innovation in medicine, biology, engineering, economics, and other fields. Faster sharing in biology and medicine, for example, could lead to cancer being solved 12 months before it otherwise would have been, which would lead to millions of lives being saved.
Academia.edu has over 1.5 million registered users, and over 3.5 million monthly unique visitors. Both of these metrics tripled in 2011. Over 4,500 papers are added to the platform each day, and over 3,500 academics join each day.
We need talented engineers to help us accelerate the world's research. We believe that science is currently dysfunctional, and that there is a chance to make a big impact.
We just raised $4.5 million from Spark Capital and True Ventures http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3297812. Some of our angel investors include Mark Shuttleworth (founder of Ubuntu) and Rupert Pennant-Rea (Chairman of The Economist).
We have a strong engineering culture. We're a 10 person team based in downtown San Francisco. The site is Rails, and other technologies we use include PostgreSQL, Redis, Varnish, Solr, Memcached, Mongodb, Beanstalkd.
Familiarity with our technologies is a plus, but it's not essential. It's far more important that you are a quick learner who can pick up new technologies quickly. There is more information about the company on our hiring page, at http://academia.edu/hiring.
The kinds of things you would be working on include:
* building an API for Academia.edu, to allow developers to hook into our academic graph
* building a great News Feed for all the research you want to follow
* building a world class Analytics product giving scientists real-time metrics about the impact of their work
* building infrastructure to make the site extremely fast and stable
What we're looking for are:
* Web development experience (building apps on your own is great)
* Experience with the full engineering stack
* Passion for engineering and building great products
All the strategic decisions in the startup are made collaboratively, whether they are about hiring, new feature development, user growth, user retention, funding, or revenue. You can participate in those general startup decisions as much or as little as you want. We have found that our decisions are much better as a result of everyone contributing to them. If you like having an impact, you will enjoy the Academia.edu culture. There is more information here http://academia.edu/hiring.
H1B candidates are very welcome. We will take care of the visa process.
Some guest posts on TechCrunch about the problem that we are trying to solve, and our company's mission, are below:

HireArt is a software-automated employment agency.Â We believe that higher ed and the labor market are fundamentally out of sync, and so we're creating a new type of online job application that emphasizes skills rather than pedigree.Â Â â€¨â€¨We're a recent Y Combinator grad looking for an engineer to join the co-founders.Â This is an opportunity to strongly influence our product at an early stage, and we hope that you'll take on a leadership role as we grow.
â€¨â€¨We recently raised a big seed round and are offering a competitive salary and generous equity.
Rails experience is a plus but not required.Â We're looking for someone who's literate in the full stack and is particularly strong in at least one of:
* A scripting language (e.g. Perl, Ruby, Python, PHP, ShellScripts)
We also hope you're as excited as we are to tackle new problems in:
* Online education
* Labor economics
* UX and UI
* Psychometric testing
HireArt is rethinking the hiring process in a way that emphasizes skills rather than pedigree. Candidates submit our common app, which require them to do real work (e.g., create a PowerPoint, record a video sales pitch). We use a mix of humans + technology to evaluate our applicants and match them to jobs.
â€¨â€¨We've already gotten tons of people hired for jobs they love and candidates spend hours at a time on our site. Employers (including big corporations and some of the best start-ups in Silicon Valley) say we're saving them time and money and we're earning real revenue after just 6 months.
Software Engineer/Senior Software Engineer at Cogo Labs (http://www.cogolabs.com/)
Cogo Labs is a company that creates companies, kind of like an incubator with a twist: all of our ideas/startups come from within the company. We don't offer investment in outside startups. Thus far we have had two major ($100MM+) acquisitions, and a handful of smaller ones, and we are anticipating more in the near future. Typically, once a startup we are incubating gets off the ground, we hire employees into that startup and assist them with whatever they need to make the company successful. Cogo Labs itself has around 40 full-time employees now in our office in Kendall Square in Cambridge, MA.
I'm looking for a software engineer or senior software engineer to join my team. You should have a degree in CS or a similar field, and experience developing for the web, as most of our startups are web properties. Specific experience in Ruby, Rails, and/or Python are a plus, but not absolutely necessary. I'm more concerned with finding smart people than finding people with specific skills.
I am currently developing new features for a web site that we run that gets >50k unique visitors per day, and you'd be assisting in this effort. I can be more specific if you're invited for an interview.
We are big on metrics and analysis -- there are grids of monitors (we call them "NOC walls") all over the office showing up-to-the-minute stats about all of our properties. I can code up a new feature, deploy it, and walk over to one of the NOC walls and literally watch my change affect traffic on the site, or revenue, or profit. It's a really fun place to work. Benefits and perks are great as well (see http://cogolabs.com/careers for more info).
If you're interested, shoot me an email with your resume and a brief cover letter (be sure to mention you saw this post on HN). Bonus points for including a link to your github page or other code repository where I can see some code you've written.
You can reach me at cmatthias at cogolabs.com.
Contextly is making online news better. We're currently in a closed beta of our related links service, a beta that includes Wired.com and other top tech blogs.
We're looking for a technical co-founder to build and architect (in the widest possible conception of that term) a better future for online news. Pardon the generalities, but we actually believe that stealth is underrated for startups.
If you are passionate about journalism and big data and want to build something that actually makes a difference, drop us a line, we'd love to talk.
There are many decisions yet to be made about our future stack, so being proficient at choosing the right tools in an honest manner is more important than having X years experience in Python/Ruby/MongoDB, etc. An interest in APIs, big data, graph analysis, etc., as well as open source contributions will help you stand out.
E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with "HN" in the subject line.

Actifio is looking for software engineers. Actifio is radically simple copy data management. We've invented some really cool technology to do things no other system can, and we're dead easy to use. This is not your mother's enterprise software!
Actifio has been invested in by top VC firms (one of the very few East Coast companies in Andreessen Horowitz's portfolio) and is growing super fast.
We're always looking for smart engineers in every team, but since I'm on the deduplication team, I'll have to pitch you on that :)
Dedup seems like an easy problem to solve. Split the data up into blocks and make sure you only store one of each. But at scale, it becomes a whole different animal.
When you've got 128TB of 4KB blocks, you have 32 billion unique blocks of data to manage. Making our dedup ingest, restore, and garbage collect fast is a great challenge, especially with "only" 128 GB of RAM.
If you'd like to chat about a job opportunity, I'm at email@example.com. Since I'm an engineer, I'm not going to type a list of silly requirements. Just send me a resume and whatever else you think I'd like to know.
ZipRecruiter is looking to expand our engineering team. We are small (16 full time employees), growing rapidly, bootstrapped and profitable.We help employers and recruiters distribute their jobs online and screen their applicants. We have a large number of paying customers and job seekers using our service. You will be working directly with the company co-founders and will have the opportunity to lead significant projects. We pay market competitive salaries and offer generous equity and cash bonuses. I think we're more laid back than the average startup and more fun than the average BigCo - we're fans of 37signals and we emulate a lot of what they talk about.
We're looking for the type of people who want to someday start their own internet company, and we're happy to help mentor employees who want to do this.

What we do: Subscription based social hyperlocal mobile gamified discovery engine with loyalty deals. For the enterprise.
Just kidding. We're a stealthy 3 person team of full stack product engineers going after a huge opportunity. Everyone on the team codes and contributes at every level, front to back. We've all built web scale products and grown them to millions of daily active users with zero marketing spend. We're looking for 1 or 2 product generalists who can come in and contribute the same way on Day 1. Our product is mobile first.
We are well funded by A-List investors.
We are NOT your average stealth startup. We are NOT yet another me-too-social-local-sharing app. We DON'T sell condoms by subscription. We are NOT the place to share photos of your dog taking a leak. There will be NO gamification. We are filling a hole in the universe by building software that addresses a fundamental human need. The world is becoming a different place: everyone has a network connected super computer with ambient sensors in their pockets and we can see the future that is enabled by these devices. We are making that future happen.
Real talk: We've been running our prototype for 2 months and we all use it every day. Every person we've showed it to has asked us if they can use it. Every single person has gotten mad when our testflights expire off their phones after letting them test it.
The ideal candidate is a brilliant, fearless and passionate individual who is uncompromising in his/her pursuit of building an incredible product that will positively affect the lives of millions of people every day.
As members of a team we believe in commitment and accountability; the importance of honing our craft; building tools to create leverage; and seeking to learn from and understand each other.
We are offering founding team equity and above market salary. Retina Macbook Pro & 30 inch monitor. Office space in the heart of the SoMa district in beautiful San Francisco. Willing to relocate. Willing to fly in candidates for interviews. Willing to tell you our stealthy secrets.
Interested? Email alex at herelabs.com

The job title says "Software Developer" but really we're looking for "Software Entrepreneur" or a "Startup Engineer".

Things we'd like to see:
- Strong development fundamentals
- Web development experience
- Python experience is a plus, but not requisite
- Motivated to build stuff

A basic estimate is that the probability of collision is (n^2 / 2) / 2^160, where n is the number of hashes that have been generated. For example, if you've generated 2^64 hashes, you have a 1/2^33 chance of collision. This works pretty well until you get too close to 2^80, and larger.
Edit: That formula actually is a shorthand for (n * (n-1)/2) / 2^160, you get it because on your first hash, you have 0/2^160 chance of collision, and on your second hash, you have 1/2^160 chance of collision, and on your third, you have 2/2^160 chance of collision, and on your nth, you have (n-1)/2^160 chance of collision (assuming you haven't had any collisions already). So you can add up those probabilities to get (n * (n-1)/2)/2^160 -- you can just add the probabilities because the chance of having _two_ collisions is super unlikely (until it is no longer super unlikely, around 2^80 or so). (Really it's 1 - (1 - 1 / 2^160)^k and we're approximating that with k * (1 / 2^160.)
or 9.8 * 10^47 combinations are possible. Although this doesn't give the complete picture, this shows how big the sha1 space is.
Check-by-mail is being considered as an option (there are a few providers that automate the process).
There's also the technical possibility of using unlinked credits by a credit card processing gateway (user submits credit card # but instead of getting charged the money goes on their card), though so far they (gateway providers) have been very uncooperative about permitting large amounts of the behavior.
Some banks will allow direct ACH's but usually charge a fee per transaction that might make it prohibitive. I wouldn't be surprised if some banks charged less than others.
In any case, my startup is nearing launch and I'd relish the opportunity to meet people trying to solve similar problems.
