INRIX INC Santa Monica, California

Senior Full Stack Web/Python Engineer

ParkMe, recently acquired by INRIX, is a global automotive SaaS and DaaS company that helps drivers find, compare, and pay for parking. INRIX is a leading provider of real-time traffic information, connected car services and analytics, serving more than 400 blue-chip customers in more than 42 countries around the world. Our vision is simple – to solve traffic, empower drivers, inform planning and enhance commerce.

We have the largest and most comprehensive database of parking information in the world, and we are constantly developing new ways to show drivers their most complete, actionable options in an intuitive and useful way.  We have developed proprietary integrations with hundreds of parking operators, thousands of parking garages, and hundreds of thousands of metered spaces to be able to present the user with up-to-date occupancy and rate calculations.

Not only are we working on a relevant problem which helps real people save money and reduce stress every day, ParkMe is also an awesome place to work.  We're located in the heart of Santa Monica, and follow the work-hard play-hard ethos: flexible work hours, dog-friendly office, monthly outings, Friday lunches, etc.  We work to an aggressive but predictable schedule, and our testing is good, so deployments are sane and during the daytime

In case you were wondering, we’re built using a combination of Python, Javascript, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Redis, Objective-C (for iOS), and Java (for Android). Specific experience with these exact languages/technologies is not required.

As a Senior Engineer at ParkMe you’ll be responsible for building and maintaining the systems that supports us. Our mission is to have the highest quality data available through the highest quality interfaces.

Responsibilities:

  • API – ParkMe provides its own interface to third-party clients with APIs for finding, querying, and reserving parking. We’re currently in the process of revising and updating our APIs to make them even easier to use and integrate into third party applications.
  • Backend – ParkMe’s backend is a single application with components for interacting with gates and sensors, processing payments, gathering parking information from various sources, and providing notifications to users and lot operators. Continually evolving and improving this application as well as expanding it is a crucial job here, and we need the best tools and practices to make it happen.
  • Internal Tools – The customer service and data departments at ParkMe are the customers of our own internal suites of tools. Our goal is to provide them with the systems they need to perform their jobs with the ultimate goal of maximizing their productivity and happiness.
  • Operator Tools – ParkMe provides systems for lot operators to manage their facilities as well as view analytics on facility performance. Building the best tools for lot operators to get actionable intelligence is a top priority, and we will continue to expand and improve these systems with new features and easier to use components and interfaces.
  • Infrastructure – We’re completely cloud-based with systems for automatically deploying and provisioning new servers. Even though we’re small, we recognize that the rest of the engineering team are ultimately the customers of the individuals responsible for deployment and infrastructure. Therefore, the goal with our infrastructure is to maximize developer productivity and happiness.
  • Data Science – Data science at ParkMe satisfies the needs to several different customers. For the end user it allows us to guide them to the locations where they’re most likely to find parking. For lot operators, it allows us to provide actionable intelligence about the status of their business. Internally, it allows us to process large volumes of data semi-automatically and to win contracts by constantly having our thumb on the pulse of our data.
  • Website – We have a consumer facing website that utilizing AJAX and Javascript. Millions of people use our website to help. Help us build out interfaces and improve the UI!

Requirements:

  • Experience with Python and SQL
  • Experience with devops, managing servers, and AWS
  • Portfolio of previous projects.
  • Passion for creating great software
  • Track record of shipping high quality products under constraints

Lulu Press, Inc. Morrisville, North Carolina

Django Developer (Sr. Software Engineer)

Lulu.com is looking for an Experienced Software Engineer (Django Developer) to build the next generation of publishing platforms in our head office in Morrisville, NC.

Since 2002, Lulu Press has enabled authors in more than 225 countries and territories to self-publish over one million publications. Publishing and academic publishing in particular are dominated by a small group of established companies. These companies stifle innovation and exploit authors and readers alike. Our goal is to create an alternative to traditional publishing that offers content creators and consumers a better deal.

Publishing is ripe for disruptive ideas but we are certainly not the only team working on innovate solutions. That's why we are looking globally to find exceptionally talented developers like you.

You are perfect for this role if you have proven abilities in:

  • 5+ years working in Python and (of course) Django
  • HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • Development & consumption of REST-APIs
  • Scaling applications

 Bonus skills and experience:

  • Test-driven Development
  • CI, automation tools, DevOps
  • JavaScript frameworks & libraries, especially AngularJS
  • Internationalization
  • Micro-Service Architecture
  • Experience in the publishing industry
  • A blog, Github or Stack Overflow profile showcasing what you’re all about

In the next couple of months you will probably work on the following projects:

  • an open platform for authors, publishers and knowledge entrepreneurs to create, produce and disseminate their works
  • tools for assembling content from hybrid sources 
  • tools for automatic transformation of content into various analog and digital formats
  • solutions that empower creators through machine learning, data mining and related technologies
  • a new kind of marketplace for content creators and consumers

Lulu empowers people of all ages to explore and express their interests, passions and expertise through books, photography and art. Lulu's home base is in Raleigh, NC but you will work with an international team located around the world.

Treating people right is fundamental to how we do business. We treat our customers as we’d want to be treated, we treat each other like family, and we treat ourselves to a good day’s work and a good night’s sleep.

Our goals have always been the same: Have fun, do exceptional work, build the best product in the business, experiment, pay attention to the details, treat people right, tell the truth, have a positive impact on the world around us, give back, and keep learning.

 Why you will make us awesome:

  • Your skills are more important than your resume
  • Results are more important than perfection
  • Maintainable software is more important than using "hip" technologies
  • Clear code is more important than a rock star attitude
  • Ability to learn is more important than years of experience
  • ...but years of experience aren't bad either ;-)

If you are interested, we would like to hear from you.
