Pivotla Labs | ONSITE in NYC, SF and many other locations | Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Data Scientists | Visa and relocation assistance

Pivotal Labs is a division of Pivotal Inc.

We look for aptitude over APIs. It doesn't matter wether your resumé says PHP or PhD: if you're smart, know some stuff and have empathy, we want to work with you.

Labs helps clients to become better at development. For engineering we are religiously lean and agile -- in practice that means we pair program and TDD every line of code from the outside. Our product managers are fantastic at keeping products sharply focused, our designers are masters from users to pixels. We have a growing data science practice, and some engagements include all four roles.

Our NYC office is growing fast to meet exploding demand for Labs, Cloud Foundry and Big Data Suite.

We are also hiring in all our offices, including new offices: SF, Los Angeles, Seattle, Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Toronto, London, Dublin, Berlin, Tokyo and Sydney.

We provide visa and relocation assistance. In the NYC office we have about 15 people from overseas, including Australians like me.

At the office we have free breakfast, weekly tech talks, good benefits and competitive pay. Ping pong is not mandatory, but it's popular. I think west-coast ping pong is harder to beat, but east-coast style is more entertaining to watch. The beer fridge has more IPA than I prefer but I guess that's life in paradise.

My time at Pivotal, in both Labs and CF, is the best job I've ever had -- I've learnt more here than anywhere else. Everyone is smart and fun to work with.

You can apply through our website: http://pivotal.io/careers. You can also email me at jchester@pivotal.io to answer any questions you might have and potentially help me score one of our generous referral bonuses.

Please note that emailing me confers no particular advantage over applying directly and I might not refer you. As a consultant I can only reply to emails during non-billable hours, I hope that's OK.

I also posted an ad for Cloud Foundry: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=10311634

NCC Group (formerly Matasano Security, iSEC Partners, and Intrepidus Group) - Austin, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Sunnyvale, CA

Somehow it's October already, which means you're frantically working on your "meta" Halloween costume and we're about four days away from all stores playing holiday music. We'd love for you take a few minutes away from sewing that "ghost in the machine", and to consider a career with NCC Group!

NCC Group is constantly hiring security consultants from ALL backgrounds to join our team. If you’re a tinkerer, a breaker rather than a builder, or someone who wonders “why” and ends up down the rabbit hole 36 hours later with a disassembled air conditioning unit surrounding them... we’d love to hear from you! Our process welcomes those with years of experience, as well as those with little to no direct experience in what we do.

The bottom line: if you love security and research, NCC Group just may be a perfect fit for you.

What do we do exactly? Penetration testing, security analysis, and cutting-edge research into current technologies and attacks (breaking things). You spend most of your day thinking about security systems and how they can break. You get to be creative and have a lot of freedom to be clever while learning new technologies at a very fast pace. Engagements are usually 2-4 weeks long and in a year you will be exposed to 15-20 products and technology stacks. Your work will typically initiate person-months of security improvements in products millions of people use. You will have access to senior engineers/architects and your findings/ideas will be heard by senior decision makers. You will have enormous impact in making the software people use safer. All of our consultants are also security researchers, with dedicated research time. Not too shabby!

If you want to learn more about us check out our: Blog - https://www.nccgroup.trust/us/blog/ Cryptopals - http://cryptopals.com/ Microcorruption - http://microcorruption.com/

If you're ready to apply, contact us at: https://www.nccgroup.trust/us/careers/. We'd love to hear from you!

SpotHero | Chicago, IL | http://spothero.com SpotHero is changing parking, and our tools will redefine the transportation industry. With over a million cars parked, fast growth, and solid funding (https://angel.co/spothero), SpotHero offers countless ways to make an impact on the company and your career.

Engineering Roles: Data Engineer - http://spothero.com/careers/87905 We have a ton of data sources, and a crap ton of data. Want to build our first real data warehouse? Love redshift, cassandra, luigi and airflow? We do too...

Senior Software Engineer in Test - http://spothero.com/careers/91854 QA is a part of every engineer's process here at SpotHero. However, we need someone dedicated to bringing automated test best practices to the team, and someone that can figure out how to test the really hard things. We have a love/hate relationship with Selenium. And if you don't know why, then you're probably not ready for this role. Come help us tame the beast...

Software Engineering Intern - http://spothero.com/careers/88312 Interns are as important as Lead Engineers at SpotHero. They are the future of our team, and the future of our industry. You'll be paired with a Senior Engineer from day 1, and solving real problems that make it to production your first week. Buckle up and hold on tight, you're about to learn a crap ton here!!

Lead Software Engineer, iOS/Android No, we don't expect you to build both iOS and Android apps by yourself. BUT, you should know how to!! This role is half managing the iOS & Android apps, and half architecting & developing. You'll have both iOS and Android developers (1 for each platform) on your team, and you should be able to jump back and forth, as needed. If you're a first time manager, no worries; we'll coach you on those skills. Just be sure you're a master of both platforms.

Software Engineer, Android - http://spothero.com/careers/88317 SpotHero is a mobile product. If you love building Android apps, you'll love what we've got in store. We have an amazing Android app, that we're looking to do a full ground up redesign on. So there is a lot of bluesky work in the very near future.

To apply, please email your resume to jobs@spothero.com. Include any github account, linkedin profile, and any project that you’re particularly proud of. We love seeing work that others loved working on.
