KnowledgeHound (knowledgehound.com) | Boston Engineering Intern

Deploy real-world code to production week one. Develop code and your skills. Spend some time in the sun, working in Boston and Cambridge.

WHAT WE DO: We build KnowledgeHound, a data search and exploration tool, on top of some fantastic technologies. We've got a real product, real revenue from Fortune 500 clients and real investment. We're looking to add some more interns & developers to that mix.


   - You believe that work doesn't need to be all consuming to be productive and fulfilling,

   - You are committed to getting better at your craft every single day (tell me how you do it!),

   - You want to get your hands dirty in a real code base (sorry, powerpoint doesn't count as work here),

   - You thrive on flexibility not micromanagement and

   - You've built something real (class or side projects or previous internships are great examples)
WHAT'S THE SUMMER GOING TO BE LIKE? We've got a backlog of new features/bugs, and we're overhauling one of our major systems. We want you to join hands with the rest of our tech team and deliver production code. Just like everyone else, you'll pull a new bug/feature from the queue, work with anyone else necessary (e.g. our world-class designer, Joe) and put together a pull request. I'll be a personal resource and I'm dedicated to learning and to teaching. If you hit a snag or don't know the best way to do something, we'll work on it together.

We are a collaborative team. We count on everyone to think critically, bring ideas for improvements and champion those ideas. In other words, "We do pay you to think." Be a part of designing our product and our business.

WHERE IS THIS PLACE? I'm currently our entire Boston office (there are another half a dozen of us at the home office in Chicago and one on the West coast). On that account, we don't have a permanent office here yet. I'm planning to spend the summer working from co-working spaces, coffee shops, home, and places in the sun. I like to alternate between working surrounded by great people and taking a full day somewhere quiet to knock out some "real work" (writing code). If that sounds better than the cube farm, email me (john@knowledgehound.com).

MATASANO SECURITY - Chicago. New York City. Sunnyvale.

Application Security Consultant

Full-Time, work visa sponsorship available


The security of computer systems has increasingly become an everyday concern. The news all too often brings word of yet another compromise, exposing financial information, personal details, or simply salacious pictures. Whatever the impact, it's clear the technology industry has a problem, and there are few easy solutions.

Some seek legislation to impose harsher penalties on the responsible parties. This ignores the fact that many of those responsible are outside the jurisdictions which seek to punish them. In some cases, they may have tacit approval of their own government, or even be operating on their government's behalf. Others turn to established security products looking for antivirus and network filtering technologies to add protection. This is an also an imperfect solution. It places the defender in a reactive posture, responding only to those threats which have been previously detected, and for which countermeasures have been developed. There's no perfect solutions.

At Matasano, we believe the best way to combat security weaknesses is at their source; by discovering and remediating software vulnerabilities before others leverage them for ill effect. Our clients see the value in this approach. We're engaged to work on some of the most interesting and important software on the planet. Aside from identifying vulnerabilities, we help our clients identify the root cause. Through this, they can adjust processes to reduce the likelihood of similar problems in the future, while increasing their ability to identify and correct them. The goal is more resilient software.

We've assessed hot startup web applications, low level device firmware, mobile platforms, and everything in between. With this breadth, we have need for employees skilled in frameworks like Node, Rails, Django, and Spring. We need people comfortable with x86 and ARM assembly, reverse engineering, and binary protocol analysis. If you're skilled in a programming language with the letter 'C' in it, that's desirable. Newer safer languages like Rust and Golang are in demand. In short if you share our focus on helping secure our software ecosystem one piece at a time and want a chance to do something about it, we should talk.

Learn about our hiring process at http://www.matasano.com/careers or contact us at careers@matasano.com Get a taste for some of what we do at http://www.microcorruption.com and http://www.cryptopals.com Check out our blog at http://chargen.matasano.com

Next month, you'll notice a change in these posts. Since being acquired by NCC Group in 2012, Matasano has been working increasingly closely with our peers at iSEC Partners and Intrepidus Group. The time has come to formalize this, by adopting a common name; next month I'll be posting under that name.
