Amazon Flex | Seattle, Toronto, Phoenix, Austin [All ONSITE] | SDEs, Interns, SDETs | https://flex.amazon.com/

I'm an SDE on a Toronto-based team. This whole org is still being bootstrapped, and we need to hire more talented developers.

Amazon’s new delivery platform, Amazon Flex, aims to delight customers by delivering millions of packages faster than ever before. We are expanding our platform rapidly to new geographies and products from groceries to big-screen TVs in an increasingly complex transportation network.

Our Transportation Technology group is responsible for designing and implementing software that makes the delivery of these items possible in one hour or less. We are building software that predicts, plans, schedules, routes and executes on the speedy delivery promise in a cost effective manner.

Software at Amazon is typically "use whatever works best", but so far my corner of Flex has mostly been AWS and Java 8.

You can apply directly online: http://www.amazon.jobs/results?jobCategoryIds[]=70&searchStr...

Or send me an email- my username @ amazon.com. I'm happy to answer any questions, and forward resumes off to the managers/recruiting for a specific area you're interested in.

Toronto, Semi-Remote | JS Developer: Code for a cause!


We're proud of our universal health care, but our system faces difficult challenges. Hospital staff use "enterprise"-quality software that is hostile to its users. Doctors often struggle with the software's interfaces, and are unable to access the information that they need in a timely manner. Quality of care suffers.

Konode is bringing the fluidity and simplicity of modern web apps into the EMR (Electronic Medical Record) space, with a dedicated focus on bridging the gap between qualitative & quantitative observations. We depend on using the latest and greatest web-dev tools, and a short feedback loop with real professionals to make this possible.

We're ready to welcome a new code ninja with a genuine interest in developing meaningful software to help take this project to the next level.

Short-list of great perks to joining our team:

- Flexible schedule; shared office space at CSI Spadina

- A small and dedicated team (100% programmers)

- Happy, helpful team atmosphere. Good people and constructive workflow

- Real-world testing & feedback with network of health professionals

Sound good? On the technical side, our project runs on the NW.js platform and we use React for UI.

We are looking for a developer with significant experience in the following:

- Javascript / Coffeescript

- ReactJS, AsyncJS, NodeJS, ImmutableJS

- Testing and Usability

- Open-Source Projects

- Version Control (we use Github)

Team members must be able to meet downtown Toronto periodically.

Ready to apply? Please email your resume and portfolio to: drdave2063@gmail.com

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 resumé 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. Right now we are particularly trying to grow in Labs and Cloud Foundry.

-- 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 the Cloud Foundry project. We're constantly improving the leading opensource PaaS -- 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.

-- 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.

For what it's worth, I'm just an engineer. My replies might not be immediate, sorry.
