We're hiring scala developers here at Nest.  It's fun job -- working with a smart, practical, interdisciplinary group of people on products that are good for the world.  Join us!
See below for a job description for one of the positions in service development.  We're also looking for help in other areas, including for Android development.  These are full time positions, but there are periodically opportunities for contract work too, especially in scala and javascript.
Cheers,Lee



Services SW Engineer
The work:
  • Develop distributed systems for the Nest service cloud.
  • Projects include real time data synchronization, service coordination, large scale data processing frameworks, and services for web and mobile clients.
  • Develop test frameworks and operations tools for the services you create.
  • Work in an agile culture.
  • Deliver services for high availability, with a high quality bar.

Skills and experience needed:
  • A passion for creating and building things.
  • JVM experience.
  • Fluency in Scala or other functional languages is a plus.
  • Familiarity with one or more common web frameworks such as django or rails.
  • Thrive in a collaborative team with other strong programmer/architects.
  • Comfort with basic cryptographic techniques and security protocols is a plus.
  • Understanding of multiple programming languages (e.g. javascript, python, ruby, bash).
  • Good written communications skills. We do a lot of chat/email/document collaboration.
  • Bay area residency or demonstrated success as a remote employee.

Interesting, but I don't live near a bay, and I never worked as a remote employee (not a
common practice in France, yet), so I suppose I cannot qualify...
Perhaps I can move near a bay of the Atlantic ocean, although I don't see how it would
improve my productivity (nice places, though).

'^_^
OK, I joke, I suppose you are talking about the San Francisco Bay area, but it is funny as
it is a very "local" point of view in our worldwide Internet universe. Nothing in your
mail says you are in the USA, even if I suppose your site is more explicit.

All the best in your search, and for the candidates. :-)

That's funny, I was thinking more or less the same thing. That should be some kind of French mindset, I suspect ;)

I know guys near the Mont Saint-Michel bay who might be interested, should I contact them ? :)

French mind is always set to trolling ...

Quite true :). I think it's important for recruiters that explore the Scala community to know that Scala started outside US, and the current community is still a lot more international than some other language currently. I mean sure, any computer language has its international community, but for a young language like Scala, looking outside your borders might be necessary at this moment in time.

I'm much more a scala fan than a recruiter :-).  
The important thing is that another company is choosing scala!

Point well taken.  Nest is located in sunny Palo Alto, CA, USA.  Most people are local, but we have a number of great software development employees and contractors in other places, including Seattle, Boston, Manila (the one in the Philippines :-)).  I'd be glad to add some European cities to that list.
Cheers,Lee

a great person to work with :-)

How would specifying USA help?  The Chesapeake Bay is a few minute walk from my house, yet I suspect I don't live in the correct area...

My remarks were not offensive, just light humor toward those forgetting
there is a world outside. :-) I still appreciate the offer (just
frustrated not to qualify) and the openness to telecommuting.

Nobody said otherwise! ;-)

I long for the day when Demonstrated Success as a Remote Employee means I'll be able to workfor a US company without leaving South Africa. Probably won't happen but I would love it, since I already work from home mostly anyway :-)
