\nMedaxion is looking for strong Rails developers to further architect, design, and build the Rails back-end for our industry-leading anesthesia record-keeping app.  Medaxion was founded in 2008, has experienced rapid growth in the past 3 years, and will be profitable in 2015. We're all set for an even more profitable 2016. We offer great benefits and an opportunity to contribute to fundamentally transforming the operations of anesthesiology practices.\n\nYou'll work closely with our Directors of Software Development and Quality, our CTO, CEO, and your fellow Rails and iOS developers, enabling Medaxion's growth by adding and extending application features and by providing the infrastructure necessary to support more and larger customers. The Rails code base has been developed over the past few years by some of the best Rails developers in the land, so you won't be cleaning up any messes.\n\nAnd if you’re not squeamish, we’ll have you scrub up and spend a day with our anesthesiologists in their operating rooms, seeing how they use the software your team has written.\n\nMedaxion’s HQ is in Nashville, TN; the small-but-mighty software development team has to date been based in the Durham-Chapel Hill area of North Carolina. In order to get the strong developers we need, we're open to full-time remote work as long as you're in the Central or Eastern time zones of the US and can travel to Chapel Hill a few times a year.

\nHello! We’re Real HQ and we’re five years old. Since 2010, we’ve grown to 37 employees, maintained profitability, and significantly expanded our customer base. We have an office in Austin, TX but pride ourselves in being a remote company—more than half of our team is spread across the United States.\n\nOur Product team consists of two senior-level Rails developers and one frontend developer/designer. We maintain a custom-built, in-house CRM—creatively named Contacts—that supports our consumer-facing service, Agent Pronto.\n\nOver the next few months, we plan to expand our product line and add new services. In order to do that more quickly and efficiently, we’re hoping to round our three-person dev team up to an even four.\n\nWho You Are *fingers crossed*\n\nYou’re a seasoned Ruby on Rails developer who thrives in a flexible, self-directed environment. You have a history of delivering quality, scalable Ruby on Rails applications. You know what it’s like to be interrupted throughout your day and are excited to work with people that value the maker’s schedule. You transcend the left-brained developer stereotype, have an eye for design, and incorporate UX understanding into the things you build. Additionally:\n\n\n* You’re self-motivated to learn and incorporate new technologies and keep up with best practices.\n\n* You’re as comfortable writing code for the browser as you are code for the server.\n\n* You’re proficient with MySQL (database and query optimization is a plus).\n\n* You believe in the value of testing and rarely ship code without automated tests in place.\n\n* You have strong communication skills and are receptive to constructive feedback.\n\n* You have the ability to thoroughly, yet simply, explain features to everyday users.\n\n* You can clearly articulate your thoughts and feelings through writing.\n\n* You’re comfortable working on your own and are able to set ego aside when collaborating on features.\n\n* You’re not afraid to ask for help.\n\n\n\n\nHow We Make\n\nWe don’t separate “product” from “engineering”. Our dev team is the Product team, and we all take responsibility for defining features, collaborating on their design and implementation, and finally, announcing them to the team.\n\nWe build our products using the following tools and languages, and we’ll expect you to be proficient in each:\n\n\n* Ruby, Ruby on Rails\n\n* HTML (Haml)\n\n* CSS (Sass)\n\n* Javascript (jQuery, CoffeeScript, Ajax)\n\n* Data stores (MySQL, Redis, Memcached)\n\n* Testing tools (RSpec, Capybara)\n\n* Continuous integration and deployment\n\n* Linux\n\n* Git\n\n* Nice-to-haves: Bootstrap, Backbone.js\n\n\n\n\nWe communicate using Slack, Basecamp, Github, and Google Hangouts. Occasionally, we pair-code with Screenhero.\n\nSome Specifics\n\nWe’re looking to hire immediately for a full-time, salaried position. You can expect to be paid a competitive market rate and work around 40 hours per week. We request that you reside in the United States, but once hired, you’ll have the flexibility to work from anywhere. You can choose when to start and end work each day (though, we request at least some overlap with a 9-5 CST schedule). You’ll also be provided with the following perks and benefits:\n\n\n* Comprehensive health, dental, and vision coverage. We pay 100% of your premiums and 50% for your dependents.\n\n* Unlimited vacation.\n\n* Up to 12 weeks of paid maternity / paternity leave.\n\n* Laptop and phone upgrades every three years. We’ll also pay your monthly phone bill.\n\n* Ongoing education stipend to use toward conferences, seminars, etc.\n\n* Fringe benefits (books, software, etc.)\n\n\n\n\nWe understand that working remotely can get a bit lonely, so we’re happy to provide an office or coworking space near you. You’ll also be invited to attend departmental meetups and our annual company retreat, Real Life. Last year, we spent the week in Boulder, CO. This year, we’re flying everyone to South Lake Tahoe for a relaxing week of working and hanging out.\n\nThink You’re a Good Fit?\n\nTo learn more or to apply, send an email to [email protected] and include “rake” in the subject line. Also, let us know how you found this job posting. We won’t dictate the format of your application beyond that, so be thoughtful and creative. The application process will include several interviews, a remote pairing session or coding assignment, and a final, in-person interview in Austin (we’ll fly you in and host you). Thanks for looking, and good luck!

\nWe’re looking for a data engineer to join the growing team at DocumentCloud! If you’d enjoy a chance to help develop the next generation of our service -- an open-source civic platform that more than 1,000 news organizations use to analyze, annotate and publish documents for the public good -- we’d love to hear from you.\n\nThis is a full-time, two-year position with full University of Missouri benefits funded by a grant from the Knight Foundation. We’re a nimble, tightly knit team that works remotely -- we stay connected via Slack and video chats -- so you can live where you’d like and work flexible hours.\n\nYou’ll work on DocumentCloud’s processing pipeline, which makes searching and analyzing document collections accessible to journalists, to improve DocumentCloud's extraction and analysis capabilities. The pipeline consists of several open source tools wrapped up in our Ruby-based infrastructure (a Rails-driven API and our CloudCrowd parallel processing toolkit). You'll also play a key role in developing our production API capabilities, especially focused around what information we extract for users from documents and how best to do so.\n\nOur ideal candidate would have the following skills and qualities:\n\n-- Independent problem-solver who values learning, keeps current on trends, and knows how to pick the right set of tools for a problem.\n-- Able to write clean, well-documented code; you know your way around Git, and your Github account shows activity.\n-- Strong ability to collaborate and communicate with a distributed team.\n-- Ruby and Rails.\n-- Experience with Unix-based systems.\n-- Some knowledge of data science, linguistics, information extraction or search. SOLR experience is a bonus.\n-- An interest in language and data processing.\n-- Knowledge of SQL (Postgres preferred).\n\nYou’ll join DocumentCloud at a significant time. We’re enjoying widespread use of our platform, and our tools have been used to investigate and publish stories from the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri, to the Guardian's NSA spying leaks. We collaborate with organizations such as the Washington Post, The Associated Press and Mozilla's OpenNews fellows to build better ways to present the news, and you’ll have the chance to be part of the community exploring this intersection of news, data and technology.\n\nTo apply, please contact us at [email protected]
