Watson's entry-level/college graduate machine, the Blue Spark program, is running right now. http://www-03.ibm.com/employment/ and search for `watson blue spark`. We have offices all over, in NYC, Boston, Columbus, Austin, San Jose, Raleigh, Pittsburgh, and more. If you're graduating in December or in May, give it a shot!

I'm the software engineer tech lead on the Watson Explorer connectivity team and former consultant with the product's Professional Services team. I've been around a long while and I can rightfully say that Watson group really does move quickly lives up to the "startup speed" thing seen in the press. Watson seems a lot different from what we've all thought is IBM, and I'm glad to be a part of the team keeping it that way.
You can read my post history for more about our interview process, our team functions, and our excellent culture that has a ridiculously high retention rate in our engineering department.

#3 of 6ActiveVideo - Hilversum (near Amsterdam, The Netherlands) or San Jose (California) - Full Time - ONSITE, we can help with relocation/VISA
ActiveVideo is going through a growth phase right now. We have an innovative product to virtualize the set-top box (think using old set-top boxes with a video stream rendered in the cloud), with large customers all over the world. We have operations and QA positions open in San Jose, but our core engineering group is in Hilversum, the Netherlands, where we have a really strong team of competent software and QA engineers. One thing we hear time and again from recent hires is how much they value their new colleagues, and employees judge their own compensation as pretty good in a recent survey.
We're looking for both C++ and Java developers -- though for the latter I should add we're not looking for the enterprise business-rule kind of Java developer, but rather the systems-level Java developer. Our Java codebase is a multi-threaded (evented), very scalable distributed system with strong consistency guarantees. We have a media/codec-related C++ code base (if you like getting your hands dirty with H.264, MPEG2 or Intel's cool GPU-based real-time transcoding, this is for you) as well as our own cloud-based browser engine, where we pretty much run WebKit on the cloud.
And of course we wouldn't be able to deliver quality product without our QA team members, both embedded in the development teams and in an integration-level System QA team.

If you're interested in a job (that is, if you're not a recruiter), feel free to email me at d.ochtman at the obvious domain.

Pinger, the makers of Textfree for iOS & Android, are hiring a backend PHP Senior Software Engineer.
It's an exciting time here at Pinger. We're still small enough that individual contributions really matter, and big enough that our award-winning apps touch millions of people in the one place they interact with the most — their mobile phones.
