Second Measure (YC S15) | SF Bay Area - San Mateo, CA (downtown) | ONSITE | https://secondmeasure.com
Second Measure analyzes billions of credit card transactions to answer real-time questions about consumer behavior.
Through our self-service analytics platform, we help our clients – some of the world’s largest brands and investment firms – answer questions like:
- Is Lyft gaining or losing market share in NYC?  - How many Tesla Model 3 preorders have been refunded?  - How dependent is Stitch Fix on its biggest spenders?  - (Check out our research blog ) We’re 70 people today — mostly senior engineers and data scientists — and are backed by a strong mix of VCs (Bessemer, Norwest, YC) and banks (Goldman Sachs, Citi, Jefferies).
We’re looking for other strong builders, especially those who can grow into leadership roles:
- Data Engineer - Data Scientist / Analyst - Client Engagement Manager - (more) I'm a founder (mike@). Apply directly  or email jobs@ and CC me.
Evidation Health | Santa Barbara, SF, San Mateo | Full time and Interns | ONSITE or REMOTE | https://evidation.com/careers/
Evidation runs health studies combining digital data with traditional markers. In addition we run a "why don't you build some good habits" consumer app.
It's an exciting place to be: we work with companies you've heard of to do research you'll hear of. Additionally the company really does only pursue business opportunities that it thinks lead to better health outcomes, so I don't have to worry (much) about all our data being used for advertising or worse. There's a strong culture around privacy, security, and only using data as consented.
As listed on the careers page we have openings on all teams and for all offices, but I'm specifically leading a small team of Rails backend engineers in Santa Barbara who work on "bridge" services that talk to 3rd party APIs, primarily for data ingestion. I'd love to talk to someone with 2+ years of backend experience in or interested in relocating to Santa Barbara. The company in general is very remote friendly and I'd consider adding remote to this team for the right candidate, but more likely at this time a remote Rails engineer would fit in best on one of our other Rails backend teams.
I'm happy to field and route general inquiries about other roles and teams, but again especially looking for a Rails engineer who'd enjoy working on critical data ingestion and related services. jkimmel at evidation dot com
