-= MATASANO SECURITY =- Chicago. New York City. Sunnyvale. Application Security Consultant

Full-Time or Internship, work visa sponsorship available.

The start of a new year is a time many people become a bit introspective and reflect on their lives and careers. Those of us who enjoy what we do, and find satisfaction in our work take account of our accomplishments and achievements in the past year. Others may be less satisfied with their current position, and resolve to improve it. If you find yourself in the latter camp, my advice is to find a job for which you are passionate, motivated, and talented. Find your muse; something which engages your heart and mind, and gives you a sense a fulfillment.

For those of us at Matasano Security, this sense of pride and accomplishment comes from assessing the security of application software. We find few things as inately satisfying as discovering ways to abuse application logic and bend it to our will. Better yet is the satisfaction that comes with knowing our clients can now use our information to secure their applications and protect their clients. It takes meticulous attention to detail, and the ability to think outside the box and consider cases the application's own developers didn't. Application Security can be both an intriguing mental puzzle, and an extreme adrenaline rush in a way few disciplines of computing are.

In the coming weeks, gyms will fill up with new members intent on exercising their bodies. Me? I'll continue soldiering on, breaking and helping fix software, exercising my heart and mind. If you'd like to join me, check out matasano.com/careers and contact us at careers@matasano.com.

Nokia/HERE (Formerly Navteq) — Chicago

As an organization, we have a long history with map data. Now we’re looking at interesting ways to use it to change driving. Cars of the future (and present) have onboard computers, tons of sensors, and internet connections over the cell network. If you could hook that up to our map data, you could do some really cool things.

To see what we’re up to, check out http://360.here.com/tag/connected-driving/

We’re looking for strong Java developers to make this happen. Experience with AWS, apache storm, stream processing or high volume, low-latency applications are all plusses.

We're also looking for strong SDETs.

The things I’ve enjoyed most since starting here a few months ago:

- Interesting problem space

- Interesting tech stack

- I get to wear sandals to work (I chose to not take advantage of this particular perk today)

- Team running group that goes for a run together every Wednesday morning before lunch (weather permitting)

- Company gym

- Quickly-growing team

- Good medical insurance coverage

- Starting a lunch time study group (with lunch provided by the company!)

Interested? Questions? Email me at roman.zabicki@here.com I'd love to talk to you.

KnowledgeHound - http://knowledgehound.com - Chicago, IL

Full stack (mostly Python/Django) developer to lead a team and architecture. Also searching for dedicated frontend/backend.

   ===========================
   ====== What we do =========
   ===========================
We build a search and visualization tool used by Fortune 500 companies to harness their small data -- the tens of thousands of (very expensive) survey's they're consumer insights team's have commissioned.

Why we exist: Most surveys and research go straight to someone's laptop hard drive, back of their mind, a neglected share drive, etc. Those surveys can cost 6 or 7 figures. Within the same company at the same time or the same department over time, this knowledge gets lost.

What we do for clients:

   - full-text document search
   - search within survey data files
   - visualizing data from survey files in browser
   - bring B2C quality and usability to an industry accustomed to being a backwater of enterprise software

   ===========================
   ====== The team ===========
   ===========================
We have a collaborative, whip-smart team of engineers and business folks.

Our leadership and client team are the real deal, and joining our team is a great opportunity for a great engineer to develop their "other half" and learn the ropes of growing a successful business. I have personally learned more than I can recount.

We're a diverse team:

    - founders, contractors, employees
    - backgrounds in gaming, healthcare, education, aerospace, design, linguistics, market intelligence (our sector), lots more
    - men, women, single, married, parents, etc.

   ===========================
   ====== Who we want ========
   ===========================
Soft Skills:

    - Mentoring and growing development teams
    - Articulating informed opinions on architecture, engineering quality, user experience, and development practices
    - Taking an honest-to-goodness interest in their teammates as human beings (you'll be in good company)
    - Working directly with clients, not just at a terminal
    - Excellent communication skills
Hard Skills:

    - Required: 
         - Python, Django (expert)
         - JavaScript (expert)
         - AngularJS or other JS frameworks (expert)
         - Git or another VCS (proficient)
         - Automated Testing (proficient)
         - Linux (proficient)
         - AWS or Heroku based deployment (proficient)
    - Preferred Experience:
         - ElasticSearch or Lucene
         - System Administration
         - Setting up/maintaining continuous integration system
