Traditional job searches are opaque and one-sided, particularly when it comes to salary negotiations. Candidates often don’t know the market rate for their skill set and level of experience, or how offers they receive stack up to the other opportunities that are out there.
Hired is on a mission to change all that. We are big believers in the idea that greater transparency in the job searching process benefits everyone. Candidates know how much they’re worth so that they can more easily evaluate offers and find a role that pays fairly. And companies know how their pay stacks up to their competitors so that can recruit and hire with insight.
In an effort to foster this transparency and shed light into software engineer salaries in the US and the UK, today we’re sharing the results of an intensive study. Our data science team spent many hours digging into this information to find out not only how different tech hubs like New York, San Francisco and London stack up against one another in terms of salary, but also how that translates into quality of life in those markets. While most people know that software engineer salaries are particularly high in San Francisco, they often don’t fully understand how the cost of living impacts those figures. The report also looks at how starting your career in a tech hub like San Francisco or New York can impact your earning abilities when you move to another city. In our UK report, we paid special attention to how salaries for software engineers correlate with years of experience and company size, as well as identifying the EU countries where London companies are finding their talent.

One image for all screen resolutions and different devices is not enough. An image per pixel is too much – so how can someone automatically choose the optimal responsive image sizes?
Responsive websites, even the most modern ones, often struggle with selecting image resolutions that best match the various user devices. They compromise on either the image dimensions or the number of images. It’s time to solve these issues and start calculating image breakpoints more mathematically, rather than haphazardly.
Responsive web design requires developers to determine the image dimensions that best fit their website. This breakpoints generator tool helps developers automatically find the optimal image sizes needed for the best viewing experience in web and mobile apps on a variety of screen sizes.
Common responsive image solutions tend to generate images based on a fixed set of image width values, disregarding the actual saving in file size bytes. To solve this problem, Responsive Image Breakpoints Generator uses Cloudinary’s advanced algorithms to easily generate best matching breakpoints for each uploaded image.
The algorithmic concept is to find image width values that offer a significant reduction in file size. Images are analyzed to find the best breakpoints on an image by image basis, rather than creating all possible image resolutions, and enables developers to easily create ‘picture’ and ‘img’ HTML5 elements based on the calculated breakpoints.

While employment in some industry sectors has suffered or stagnated during the past decade, Internet business has thrived. There have been significant increases in online purchases, and Internet advertising has become a $20B industry. As a result, eCommerce companies, website designers and developers, and supporting businesses account for nearly half of the 1.2 million Internet-related jobs created over the past 10 years.
Exciting new career paths are opening. At the same time, web design has become more challenging because of an increased focus on user experience (UX) and the need to keep customers happy and coming back for more. As daunting as these challenges can sometimes be, if you have the right tools at your disposal they can be easily overcome.
What is the nature of the UX challenge?
Most eCommerce websites are designed in accordance with the business objectives of the client, the eventual website owner. The business objectives of the average Internet user also need to be considered by the website’s creator, and by its owner as well. The typical Internet user can at times be a difficult and quirky customer.
He or she has:
- an attention span of around 8 seconds. The attention span of a goldfish is longer.
- a need to have rapid access to information, coupled with a diminished ability to analyze that information in depth once itbecomes available.
- a lack of patience. Page loads exceeding 2 seconds will tax a typical user’s patience.
- An ever-increasing ability to demand service from anywhere, 24/7.
Website designers need to take these idiosyncrasies into account, and the tools they use have to provide solutions to the problems these idiosyncrasies can create. Modern websites need to be designed with flow in mind.

Knowing what information users are seeking is key to a website’s success, but it’s only half the battle. How that information is presented is not only important, but can be critical in terms of the need to attract customers, keep them interested, and lead them to a call for action.

We’ve already introduced you to the special discovery of 2015, Monstroid, chosen, so far, by 3,000+ users. It is a gigantic, multipurpose WordPress theme aimed at both professionals and do-it-yourselfers. Monstroid is dubbed the “theme on steroids,” which symbolizes its constant expansion with new features and child themes. Today, we’d like to focus on the latter.
First, let’s figure out what a child theme is. In simple terms, it is a theme built with a parent theme called a framework, e.g. Cherry Framework in the case of Monstroid. Framework structuring is an optimal solution for WP themes, as there’s no need to update each of them when updates of the WordPress core are released. Instead, just update the framework itself, and that will suffice.
As a matter of fact, Monstroid is a child theme too, but is the most sophisticated one among others available in its package. Let’s recap some of its major features. Here they are.
- Installation Wizard is a one-of-a-kind tool allowing you to install the full package of this giant theme in a few clicks, without FTP.
- Innovative Backend Features of Monstroid can optimize your website management and performance. For example, Shortcode Template Editor allows you to create templates for shortcodes and modify their elements. With the help of Static Area Builder, it’s easy to customize header and footer areas by dragging and dropping. CSS Minifier can improve the performance of your site by compressing a few CSS files and grouping them into one.
- Premium Plugins are integrated into Monstroid to let you extend the functionality of your site without overpaying. For example, MotoSlider enables you to create responsive, multi-layered slideshows with both images and videos. There is also MotoPress Editor for building complex layouts in a drag-and-drop interface.
- eCommerce Functionality is provided by means of WooCommerce integration. Packed with ready-made store pages, Monstroid provides you with an opportunity to run an e-store out of the box.

Placemat got some pretty nice placeholder nouns for your site. The three current endpoints are https://placem.at/people, https://placem.at/places, and https://placem.at/things. Any one of those will actually give you a valid image back on its own, but you probably want to do something a little bit fancier. The good news is that all three endpoints accept the same parameters, so there’s not too much to remember. Everything is controlled via a few simple query string parameters: width, height, text, text color, overlay color, overlay blend mode and etc…
