Wanted: A competent (read: excellent) developer who truly enjoys writing code and producing efficient, stable, long-running applications. We’re looking for people who love to tinker with computers (hardware and software), who work with text terminals all the time (and prefer it!), and who work well remotely and under pressure. People who like to fix problems by finding solutions that fundamentally address any problems and improve the underlying systems. People for whom different languages are merely different tools—each with its strengths, weaknesses, and best applications. Does this describe you?
Skills & Requirements
- enough experience to dive in quickly and be up-to-speed in moments
- ability to work on multiple projects simultaneously
- strong coding skills, of course (essential familiarity: java, ruby, php, bash; extras: perl, lua)
- self-motivated and object-based (we don’t care about face time)
- Debian or Ubuntu experience is very helpful; working in Linux essential
- MySQL experience
Work remotely from anywhere (our employees often do), in-person frequently in Los Angeles, or on-site in Huntersville, North Carolina.
Looking for mid-level, but will consider junior and senior level as well, as long as you eat sleep and breathe this stuff, have been doing it as a hobby for a long time (in the case of the former), and aren’t stuck in your ways (in the case of the latter).
Challenging environment: New projects come in all the time, so we build current systems to last, using the best tools for the job.
Full-time. Competitive compensation. Planning to hire by 1505458800.
No recruiters please.
About Data Driven Safety
How DDS is described by our employees: “No bs, no corporate politics, no dress code, financially-secure company, flexible work schedules, objective-based approach, employees all over the world, telecommuting is as normal as on-site, love what I do (at least most days), … what did you want me to say again?”
DDS is a small company with a close-knit employee group. We have maintained a nearly 100% client and employee retention rate. We offer competitive salary and benefit packages to smart, loyal, creative thinkers that excel at problem solving.
DDS collects public record data (e.g., arrest, crash, judicial, etc.) directly from thousands of governmental agencies. This information fuels a number of unique services that are utilized nationally by large and small corporations, a state risk pool, municipalities, educational institutions, hospital systems and insurance underwriters. Our only publicly marketed service is Envision, a comprehensive driver improvement platform. However, most of our growth during the past several years has been driven by a set of predictive underwriting, fraud prevention and claims management services that were created at the request of our customers in the automotive and health care industries.
Data Driven Safety, LLC is dedicated to improving public safety. We have been in existence since 2009 and are owned through the Graham Group, a billion-dollar investment vehicle.
Odd hours celebrated; anywhere in the world acceptable. If you decide to work from our Huntersville office, there’s a Jimmy John’s right outside. And to eat what you find there, we have a large, private, outdoor patio. Before and after, have some decent espresso (well, iperEspresso) in the kitchen.
Please include, in your first message, the phrase, “my favorite color is [color]”, replacing [color] with any color (doesn’t actually have to be your favorite, if that’s a secret. Also, find and report the error in the previous sentence. No phone calls, thanks.
