kCura | South Loop Chicago | ONSITE

Do you enjoy the challenge of engineering cross-platform mobile solutions for big data?

If you have

  * Good knowledge of Object Oriented Programming, SQL, building large systems
  * Skill at programming iOS or Android
  * Work well in teams 
  * Curiosity
send an e-mail with a note describing your interest in the position and our company to wlederer@kcura.com. I prefer good cover letters over résumés.

Yes, we have all the benefits that you look for in a startup--free drinks, Killer Queen, standup/sit-down desks, many monitors. Doesn't every company have that? But we have a terrific culture, awesome technology staff, a very loyal customer base, and some very tough data-handling problems to solve.

Check out our other positions listed here for Senior Software Engineer and Network Security Monitoring in this thread.

Pivotal | ONSITE SF, NYC, Palo Alto and many, many locations worldwide | Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Data Scientists | Visa and relocation assistance

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

Pivotal's goal is to change the way the world makes software and we kinda sorta really mean it. We're broken into three basic divisions: Pivotal Labs (yes, that Pivotal Labs), Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Pivotal Big Data. Rotations between divisions, temporarily or permanently, are possible.

We have offices in San Francisco, New York City, Santa Monica, Palo Alto, Seattle, Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Toronto, London, Dublin, Tokyo and Sydney. We will soon be opening an office in Berlin as well, with more to come. Relocations, temporarily or permanently, are possible.

Each of the three divisions has a constantly evolving and deliberately cross-pollinated culture. We are constantly thinking about how we work and how we can work more sensibly, effectively and enjoyably.

-- Pivotal Labs, from which the company draws its name and cultural seed, 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.

-- Cloud Foundry solves application deployment and management. We're the main contributors to CF. We're expanding what is the leading opensource PaaS and our distribution has the fastest-growing sales of any opensource product ever. It's also the only PaaS I'd personally bet a company on -- except for integrated upstream code, every line is pair programmed and TDD'd. We dogfood the cutting edge of the technology on our own commercial public cloud (Pivotal Web Services). It works because we took the XP and Lean DNA of Pivotal Labs and scaled it up to build the best cloud platform bar none.

-- Big Data is home to a fleet of battled-hardened products that we have been progressively open sourcing. Greenplum Database tackles some of the largest datasets in the world with the comfort and familarity of PostgreSQL. Apache HAWQ (incubating) brings Greenplum's distributed query planner to Hadoop. Gemfire, which we donated as Apache Geode (incubating), is an in-memory distributed grid with years of high performance in high-stakes systems.

-- Generally

At our offices 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.

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

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

Moneythink | Chicago, IL

At Moneythink, we're building tech products that help build the habits American youth will need to become more financially capable. To equip students for these decisions, Moneythink trains college volunteers to mentor youth using a mobile technology suite designed to support students as they build the financial skills they need to reach their full potential. We're a 7-year old nonprofit that has backing from both small donors, medium-sized venture firms that fund nonprofits, institutions like Chase, AMEX, and governments at the state and city level. We're currently hiring for two positions:

1. Senior Android Engineer (ONSITE)

We believe that mobile apps are the best way to form healthy financial behaviors, and we’re looking for a Senior Android Engineer to help us build several new products and to expand our core mobile product. We’re looking for someone who can lead Android projects in both the Android SDK and React Native (but we know it's brand new - we'll learn it together!). You should be comfortable working with both in-house and external teams (we currently work every day with CauseLabs, a well-regarded Denver-based software lab.) You'd be our second in-house engineer, but in addition to the other in-house engineer, you'll work with 3 remote developers; that dev headcount will be maintained for the next 2-3 quarters but we'll gradually become an entirely in-house engineering team. Including engineering, we intend have a 5+ person in-house product team by the end of the year.

For more: https://angel.co/moneythink/jobs/97443-senior-android-engine...

2. UI/UX Lead (REMOTE OK, ONSITE in Chicago or San Francisco)

Financial education is very hard to simply teach in a classroom, so we’re excited to bring on an experienced interaction and visual designer who can take our core app to the next level while also building new apps for our next user segments. We’re looking for a designer who has studied the discipline of user experience, has a robust visual design portfolio, and is excited to get in the field to understand the human context of our users. The ability to create mockups with clear requirements for engineering is important. The ability to do front end development in HTML/CSS/JS would be nice, but is not required.

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

Your pumpkins got smashed by teen hooligans. Someone ate all of the Reese's and left only that coconut garbage candy behind. Your frustration has you thinking about the bigger picture. Maybe it's time to consider that career or company shift you've had on the backburner for so many months? I guarantee you we'll be eating Halloween candy for months to come!

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 also have numerous infosec architecture and policy positions available, should your interests and background align: https://www.nccgroup.trust/us/about-us/careers/risk-manageme...

We also have many positions in the UK and beyond! Should you be interested in those opportunities, please check them out here: https://www.nccgroup.trust/uk/about-us/careers/current-vacan...

We'd love to hear from you!

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.

Product Roles

Senior Product Manager, Mobile Apps - http://spothero.com/careers/88310 Have you brought multiple consumer mobile apps to market and rapidly scaled their adoption? Then SpotHero wants you to define and drive the future of our mobile apps, all the while partnering with an amazing team!

Engineering Roles

Senior Software Engineer in Test - http://spothero.com/careers/91854 QA is a part of every engineer's process here at SpotHero.

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...

Lead Software Engineer, iOS/Android - http://spothero.com/careers/108372 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.

Summer Software Engineering Intern - http://spothero.com/careers/118124 College 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!!

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.
