About Ticketsolve
Ticketsolve is a web based online and box-office ticketing platform. We currently have over 290 clients based throughout UK and Ireland. These clients are a mixture of Theatres, Arts, Festivals and specialty offerings such as Ice Skating and Christmas attractions. We are a consistently profitable company with healthy year on year growth. The new features and abilities we are adding to Ticketsolve puts in a place to deliver strong growth in the coming years.

Introduction
We are currently going through a very exciting evolution of our platform. We are moving from a traditional RoR architecture to a modern "single page application", exposing our application as a set of API's consumed by Ember to provide a rich interactive experience.

We have migrated our customer facing ticket selling application to Ember and our ticket scanning application to Ember, with great success. We are currently working on rebuilding the backend of our platform with the present focus been on our "Point of Sale". We are now looking to add to our team to accelerate the creation and rollout of this change across the remainder of our platform. This covers the CRM, reporting/analytics and configurations aspects of our backend.

To do this we are looking to hire new people to join our team. Ideally this person will have Ember experience. However, we are also interested in talking to people with a strong javascript background and background with other similar frameworks. In terms of experience we are open to both beginner and experienced developers. Where necessary we will put in place a bootstrap to help people come up to speed on Ember.

Skills & Requirements
- 2+ years experience developing web applications
- Experience with programming Javascript required with role focused on Ember based development
- Ruby/Rails experience a bonus but not strictly necessary
- Strong understanding of front-end technologies: JavaScript, HTML5, SASS, Ember preferred, but not required 
- Strong programming skills with focus on clean design, well refactored code and automated testing  
- Comfortable working as part of a remote team 

Technologies we use
- Ruby on Rails is our primary server framework evolving towards pure API server
- Ember is our primary front end development framework
- JSONAPI::Resources, http://jsonapi-resources.com/, is how we are building our API’s
- MySQL / Redis / Elastic are our primary storage engines
- All our servers are Ubuntu based managed through CHEF
- Deployed on AWS using terraform for managing infrastructure
- GitHub for source code management and process support
- Travis for continuous integration

How we work
We run a lightweight process that focuses on feature based delivery on a weekly basis. Our co-ordination and communication is largely through daily 'catch-up meetings' and use of appropriate tools such as Trello for backlog management, Slack for communication and Git(GitHub) for source control and feature deployment through PR's and Milestones.

From a coding perspective we place a strong emphasis on clean, minimal, well refactored code backed up by strong suite of automated tests. We make use of peer review for all design and development work.

In general we strive for an approach that empowers and trusts individuals to 'do the right thing' and as a team we try and keep each other true to this.

Remote working
Our development team works as a remote team with members in Berlin, Malmö, Barcelona, Singapore and Taiwan. Our wider organisation has people based in United Kingdom and Dublin. Dublin is our headquarters and main office space - with core Support team and Sales and Marketing team.

Remote working has become part of our company DNA. We believe that it offers a lot of advantages to both Ticketsolve and employees. We expect that our new hires will likely be remote working. This means that you should be comfortable working as part of a remote team. If this is new to you, don't worry, it was for us at the beginning as well. We now have lots of experience helping people settle in - so keep an open mind and imagine a working day with no daily commute.

Important to note that timezones are a consideration for us with remote working. Our experience is that European and Asian time zones are preferable, as it allows for collaboration at reasonable times. 

Recruitment process
We are initially looking for resumes and portfolio examples of your work e.g. GitHub repositories, blog articles, etc. If you do not have anything suitable we can provide a problem piece to work together on. Please submit resumes to shanly@ticketsolve.com with subject "Job Application".

From there we filter down and do a series of remote interviews. These are often 'work' focused i.e. looking at code together, pair programming for example. Our preference is for candidates to talk to as much of the team as possible so that we, team and candidate, can make the best decision possible. If appropriate and makes sense we will also look at facilitating face to face meetings as well.

After this stage we will be in a position to make a formal offer.

Release Manager (Ruby/Python/React) - Small Team - 100% Remote, Flexible Hours

Analytics Fire builds custom software for the solar power industry. We’re looking for a collaborative but hands-on Release Manager to help us scale our execution to support additional new high-tech sectors.

Analytics Fire is a deeply technical engineering organization. Most of us are software engineers and spend the majority of our time on heads down engineering activities like coding. Our goal in creating this position is to expand our small client-facing team with a unique person that has both the personality and the technical skillset to help guide software releases through planning, development, deployment, release, and DevOps processes.

This position is similar to that of a technical Program Manager, but you will be much more involved in the technical details and hurdles around software deployments and releases than a traditional Project Manager would be. Our ideal candidate is a current or former Software Engineer, DevOps Engineer, or Site Reliability Engineer that is willing to be trained in formal Program Management processes (or has already been trained in formal Program Management processes).

As a small company, Analytics Fire is able to tailor roles around the strengths of our individual team members. We will tailor this role to your specific technical background. However, it is a hard requirement that you are able to support the following 3 types of responsibilities:

  • (a) Represent Analytics Fire software engineering teams in client-facing interactions (clarifying requirements, negotiating technical approaches, reporting on status, etc).
  • (b) Technical writing responsibilities such as documenting requirements, project plans, system architecture, etc.
  • (c) Making meaningful contributions to the execution of complex software projects.

For reference, here is a list of some technologies we are currently actively using on a day-to-day basis:
  • JavaScript: React / Angular / Typescript / GraphQL
  • Back-end: Ruby / Python / Node
  • Embedded (IoT): C, Embedded Linux, MQTT
  • Embedded (robotics): C/C++, ROS
  • Modern software techniques: RESTful APIs, SOA, PaaS, etc
  • Agile collaboration and DevOps tools: Github, Trello, Slack, Chef, Ansible, Docker, Vagrant, etc
  • Other technologies we are currently building with: AWS, GCP, TensorFlow, OpenCV, Yocto, Salesforce platform, iOS, ARKit

Description of responsibilities:

  • Develop and maintain well-coordinated relationships with key internal and client-side stakeholders to help drive decision making around production software releases and DevOps.
  • Participate in collaborative planning discussions and technical decision making early in the project lifecycle to ensure that key decisions are made with reliability, testability, and DevOps in mind.
  • Monitor and oversee coordination, integration, flow of development, testing, and deployment around multiple parallel projects and threads of engineering execution.
  • Drive planning and delivery of high quality software releases:
  • Manage change control process during releases
  • Continuously improve company release processes
  • Proactively identify and mitigate risks and remove obstacles to releases
  • Personally plan and participate in software release activities. Advise and support the team so that they can take on less critical releases on a day-to-day basis.
  • Continually integrate the QA team and testing engineers into both the requirements gathering and software development processes and report status to clients on a very frequent basis.

  • This is a remote position but is only open to candidates living in the US or Canada. (Note: we may be open to US or Canadian citizens living abroad in US-overlapping time zones on a case by case basis.) We’re flexible about location and hours. We’re a really great match for candidate who wants to work hard on interesting projects, while also having flexibility around time and geography.

    Skills & Requirements

    “Must have” requirements:
    • Soft skills necessary to develop and maintain well-coordinated relationships with key internal and client-side stakeholders to help drive decision making around production software releases and DevOps.
    • 3+ years hands experience as a full stack Software Engineer, DevOps Engineer, or Site Reliability Engineer, ideally within a commercial startup environment.
    • Familiarity with current modern best practices around software development, data engineering, and DevOps
    • Ability and willingness to familiarize yourself with the specific technical stacks that we use.
    • Superior organization and detail orientation.
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
    • Willingness to design, document, and evangelize new engineering processes to meet evolving organizational requirements.

    “Nice to have” requirements:
    • Hands-on technical experience writing code in Ruby, Python, or JavaScript

      If you get excited at the mere thought of helping customers use new technology to help speed their SDLC so they can innovate faster, while making their software more secure - then you should keep reading. We are growing rapidly, and we need to add Customer Success Engineers (CSE) to collaborate with our customers to ensure they continuously see value across the Nexus platform. What You Will Do
      • Our customers are enterprise architects, security officers, build engineers, developers, DevOps managers, and associated stakeholders in the SDLC. They are incredibly smart and know their stuff. In this role, you will:
      • Coach and educate a set of customers on the implementation and usage of best practices to ensure smooth onboarding, faster adoption, increased footprint, etc.
      • Derive and define methodologies as well as common pitfalls through customer meetings (remote & on-site), data analysis, and customer interviews
      • Engage in one-to-one and one-to-many customer outreach with the goal of educating customers, understanding their implementation status and defining/documenting how we can close any “customer success gap.”

      • Discover and analyze gaps in the customer experience, identifying "early warning" signals and then working with cross-functional teams to address them.
      • Act as the voice of the customer - use your insights to help us drive improvements, influence product roadmap, deploy customer advocacy programs, etc.
      • Ensure customers are SUCCESSFUL and DELIGHTED with Sonatype products and services, not merely satisfied.
      • If you’ve been told, “you have a great bed-side manner,” that’s what we’re looking for.  And while there will be some days of mostly screen-time, this is a customer-facing role.
      • Travel is likely to be around 35-45%.
      Experience and skills desired:
      • Deep familiarity with tooling used in the SDLC including: source code version control systems (e.g., git, subversion, cvs, etc.), modern build tools (e.g., Jenkins, continuous integration systems), package managers (e.g., Maven, Gradle, Nuget, NPM, etc.), continuous delivery technologies (e.g., Puppet, Chef, Udeploy, etc.)
      • The ability to work with such tooling to integrate Sonatype's specific solutions into customers' application lifecycles is required.
      • Excellent troubleshooting and analytical skills
      • Well-honed project management and organizational skills
      • Prior development expertise and experience with tools such as Hudson/Jenkins (CI Servers) and Eclipse / other IDEs is desirable.
      • Experience working in the cross-functional role alongside Engineering and Sales organizations is a plus.
      • Experience with application security and licensing and helping build processes around both are desirable

      Qualifications
      • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
      • Fluency in English.
      • At least two years experience writing software for the web (but we're also excited to talk to more senior applicants).
      • Demonstrated experience and success working with diverse individuals from a broad range of cultures, backgrounds and experiences.
      • Experience writing software for the web in a dynamic scripting language like Ruby or Python.

        Location
        We're a globally distributed team where everyone works remotely. Work from anywhere with high speed internet as long as your work day overlaps with U.S. East Coast business hours (parts of Europe, Africa and the Americas would work, but Australia or Asia would be hard), so we can talk on Zoom and Slack. Our team regularly spends a week meeting together in-person roughly every nine months in a city somewhere in the world.

        Compensation
        Compensation is competitive and will be determined based on a combination of experience, seniority, and where you live. 

        Equal Opportunity
        We believe that diversity of ideas and perspectives makes our products and the movements that we serve stronger.

        Software Engineer, Infrastructure

        At Wistia we believe that every person in every business will use video to communicate every day, for asynchronous as well as live communication. It will feel as fluid and natural as it does to text or call someone today, but even more personal and human ?.

        This reality is still a way off, but we're super excited to start building it now through simple and delightful video-focused products.

        To help us get there, we're looking for a Software Engineer of Infrastructure who is excited to help our engineering teams solve challenging problems.

        As an infrastructure software engineer at Wistia, you can expect to lead projects such as the following.

        • Improve our in-house deployment platform by having it expose access to new Kubernetes options or more effectively use Kubernetes primitives, or finding ways to make our Jenkins-based CI system more pleasant to use for other engineers
        • Gather feedback from colleagues to identify workflow frictions or architectural problems across our codebases and advise and assist with improvements, such as by measuring the current load of different pieces of a system, identifying problem libraries or other system components and suggesting a solution or vetting a replacement, or planning out the steps of a complex refactoring across services.
        • Make a manual infrastructure operation more automatic or declarative, e.g. by building a tool to sync our DNS zones from a source-controlled config file or by writing a bot to show us output in new infrastructure pull requests
        • Advise our application development teams on how best to architect a new feature, including evaluating a datastore for a particular new workload, designing data flows to keep app containers stateless, deciding how to best employ AWS primitives, and identifying and avoiding single points of failure
        • Improve observability across our Rails and Elixir codebases and Linux hosts via logging and instrumentation, identify performance bottlenecks across systems, and recommend configuration or application design improvements to handle growing system scale
        • Update our Chef recipes to be compatible with new software versions or to apply security patches, bake the updates into new VM images, and roll out new images to all our clusters

        We are looking for someone who is excited to support our engineering colleagues on other teams and flexible enough to work at any level of our stack. We won't expect you to know all the tools we use on your first day, as long as you're eager to learn and you thrive working collaboratively. We're a small team, so we will also value experiences and skillsets that complement our existing strengths.
