    now that explains a lot, been getting a lot of non-reply applications lately

    Second connected thing is that in case multiple agencies are used the one who first delivers the cv gets paid in case of successful hiring. So I can imagine they could send piled up cv blindly without contacting the recruitee.

    @SethTisue

    recruitment agencies usually mask the company name so you go through them instead of applying yourself

    exactly. since if you apply directly and not through the recruiter, the recruiter won't get their bounty

    or worse, they are just collecting resumes

    :scream:

    There is a good chance, that job is posted somewhere but you can't really track it down without a company name.

    You can track down jobs even with a verbatim job description, by searching on unusual phrases. Recruiters know this and sometimes rewrite the JDs.

    in case multiple agencies are used the one who first delivers the cv gets paid

    Right. And some companies require the recruiter to get a verbal "right to represent" from the candidate, to prevent that from happening. But usually that only happens through the body shops, because the recruiters that put in more time only take the job if they're exclusive or one of a few doing the recruiting.

    they could send piled up cv blindly without contacting the recruitee

    That can, but usually doesn't, happen, because then the candidate might not be available or willing to work with that recruiter, which makes the recruiter's lead pool look weak.

    New Position
    Company: HIFI
    Title: Senior Backend Engineer
    Location: NYC based but open to remote, must be eligible to work in the US without sponsorship

    https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/1892177059/

    My own take (I work here). We use Scala and Typescript for our backend services, totally hosted in GCP using GKE, Cloudfunctions, Dataproc (Spark), Pub/Sub. We use libraries like Cats, Doobie, Http4s, sttp and on the Typescript side we use fp-ts (fun library to use). Big pluses if you understand application layer semantics (sessions, cookies, ssl/tls) as there is a critical web scraping component to the work. Familiarity with CI/CD (YAML Engineer!) and Terraform also real bonuses. Please apply through the link!

    I often wonder why so many companies requires eligibility to work from their country (US mostly) even when hiring remotely. I understand it's required for regular employees but independent contractors don't have such requirement (as far as I can trust the internet). So is it because of some reluctance toward hiring ppl as contractors?
    Rob Norris
    @tpolecat
    You can get in big trouble with the IRS (US tax authority) if you hire a contractor and treat them as a normal employee, so there can be resistance from legal departments as well as management (which has to give up some control).
    And there are probably companies working on contracts that have restrictions on subcontracting, but I don't know how common this is.
    So there are definitely reasons but I don't know what the dominant ones are.
    Wojtek Pituła
    @Krever
    Hah, this makes some sense indeed. It seems your tax office is just too effective. We have similar law in Poland yet it's easy to bypass and above certain pay grade you almost won't find anyone working through standard employments as it's so tax-ineffective.
    Jasper Moeys
    @Jasper-M
    Maybe in US tax pressure on wages is less high and workers rights are weaker, lowering incentive for companies to hire contractors instead of regular employees
    Ethan
    @esuntag
    Dev salaries in the US tend to be higher than overseas, though
    Jasper Moeys
    @Jasper-M
    That's probably true but also hard to compare. If a studio apartment close to the big employers costs $2000/month salaries evidently have to be high.
    Wojtek Pituła
    @Krever
    At the same time I hear quite often about firing developers in US when in Europe it's rather rare. It's so hard to find developers that we even have a joke
    "programmer lost his job and it was worst 30 min in his life"
    Bob Glamm
    @glammr1
    Worker protections EU countries are generally stronger. It has led to US companies gradually relocating developers to geographies with weaker protections, especially over the last couple of years
    But it depends on the country
    At the same time it seems to me that demand for software developers remains pretty high world-wide
    Rob Norris
    @tpolecat
    US has no worker protection to speak of.

    @sinanspd

    US has no worker protection to speak of.

    This combined with the grow fast-die fast start up culture is pretty catastrophic

    It's much better since Obama because you can actually buy health insurance now. For many people it was literally impossible before, so if you lose your job you're in trouble. Of course Trump wants to end that.
    sinanspd
    @sinanspd
    I worked for a start up for a year and they fired 5 people within their first 3 months during my time there (this was pre-COVID). People don't seem to be given a chance to ramp up anymore. Since they can technically let you go without any severance, if you don't instantly add value, you are out

    It's much better since Obama because you can actually buy health insurance now. For many people it was literally impossible before, so if you lose your job you're in trouble. Of course Trump wants to end that.

    don't even get me started on that haha. I could write pages on politics... Current state of COBRA, with the amendments made in 2010, isn't all that bad but health insurance is still extremely expensive IMO

    It's worse when you work there under a TN visa, and you only have some weeks to get another job or you get out of the country

    To be fair start-ups do not typically have the cash to spend on ramp-up
    But I agree that ramp-up is missing at established companies.

    Hey everyone, my company MotoRefi is hiring. We’re interested in someone with a strong familiarity or interest in FP.

    Familiarity or interest with functional programming typescript libraries (fp-ts, io-ts, matechs), functional programming languages, and/or similar libraries (Scala [Cats, Scalaz, ZIO], Haskell, Purescript) would be a plus.

    We are hiring in Denver and Arlington, VA but flexible with eventually relocating and also open to remote.

    JD here: https://stackoverflow.com/jobs/402770/seasoned-full-stack-engineer-motorefi

    It’s a bit outdated we want to make it include a bit more FP stuff.

    Feel free to PM me any questions!
