Basecamp | REMOTE | INTERN

Basecamp is hiring programming, design, marketing, operations, and data interns for summer 2016.

Interns at Basecamp work on real projects and are mentored one-on-one by a member of our team who will guide you throughout your time at Basecamp. The projects you'll work on as an intern at Basecamp are all derived from real problems we face as a business, and we expect you'll have a meaningful impact during your time here. You'll leave Basecamp with new technical, creative, and business skills and having accomplished something significant.

Internships at Basecamp are remote -- you can work from anywhere you want, provided there's some overlap in time zones with your assigned mentor. We'll fly you to Chicago once or twice during the summer to get together with your mentor and the rest of the intern class, and you'll talk regularly with your mentor via phone, Skype, or Google Hangouts. You'll also participate in some of our dozens of Campfire chat rooms every day.

All internships are paid and require a commitment of 8-12 weeks of full time work between May and August 2016 (we're flexible on start/end dates, planned vacations, etc.).

Learn more and apply via https://basecamp.com/internships. Apply by Wednesday, February 24th.

Urban Center for Computation and Data | Chicago | Systems Engineer | ONSITE | Full Time

About us: We are a research group at the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory that develops tools to better understand cities. http://www.urbanccd.org/

The project: The Array of Things (http://arrayofthings.us) is an urban sensing project involving the installation of at least 500 multi-sensor devices in the City of Chicago. The project relies on an open source platform, Waggle (http://wa8.gl), developed by Argonne National Laboratory.

Your role: As we deploy Array of Things (AoT) nodes, we need to ensure that the data we are collecting will be available to the public in the form most useful to them. For scientists, you will develop APIs that enable analytics workflows. We also want to ensure the data is accessible to the general public and policy analysts without advanced data munging skills. To that end, you will be tasked with integrating AoT data into Plenario (http://plenar.io/), our user-friendly open data hub.

Technologies: You'll mostly be programming in Python. (The AoT storage system - https://github.com/waggle-sensor/beehive-server - and the open data hub - https://github.com/UrbanCCD-UChicago/plenario are both written in Python.) For storage we use Cassandra and PostgreSQL + PostGIS.

Location: We require you to be onsite, but we're flexible about which of our sites you want to work at: Downtown Chicago, University of Chicago campus, or Argonne National Labs near Naperville, IL.

Perks: Everything we do is open source. Great university benefits.

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

Your seasonal affective disorder is in full swing. That lamp they said would help just isn't cutting it. Maybe it's not the weather? Maybe you get the sense that your current role and company aren't the perfect fit, or you're on the wrong career track altogether? Consider NCC Group!

NCC Group is constantly hiring security consultants from ALL backgrounds to join our team. If you’re a tinkerer, you enjoy breaking more than building, 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!

Pivotal | ONSITE at many, many locations worldwide | Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Data Scientists | Visa & relocation for strong candidates

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, Berlin and Sydney. More offices are coming soon. 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.

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.

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.

Director of Development - http://spothero.com/careers/126707 As the Director of Development, you'll thoughtfully lead our team of engineers in supporting and growing our business. You must enjoy the hands-on work of a day-to-day developer (coding, design, and problem solving), in addition to leading engineers, communicating closely with our executives, and determining the best use of new technologies - all the while nurturing and maintaining a development culture that SpotHero can be proud of.

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...

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.

Senior Backend Engineer - http://spothero.com/careers/124847 As a member of our Backend team, you will be responsible for building all things related to the backend horsepower that powers our website, our API, and our native apps!

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.
