#30 of 31Pivotal | ONSITE SF, NYC, Palo Alto and many, many locations worldwide | Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Pre/Post-Sales Engineers, Ops and others | Visa & relocation for right candidate
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.
-- 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.
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 can 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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, so my replies might not be immediate. I hope that's OK.
#31 of 31Remote Android Engineer (Java / JS) at Help Scout
After recently launching the Help Scout iOS app to 5 star reviews, we have big plans for our first Android app. We’re looking to hire an experienced Android engineer to help us craft a wonderful experience there. You’ll be joining one other full-time engineer on the project and working on a product used by over 5,000 companies around the world.
Our engineering team is currently about twenty people, with one focused on iOS and no one yet focused on Android. We’re starting at the ground floor with Android and have yet to make several platform-specific and technology decisions. You’ll be involved in every decision we make regarding implementation and testing.
You’ll be helping us select a framework for implementation. We currently are debating between Java or React Native and while you may have several years experience with Java on Android, you are curious enough about React Native to do some exploring and help us make an informed decision. A separate team of engineers owns all the API endpoints, so your work is focused on the app implementation and design details. You’ll also be getting everything you need from the design team with regard to Android-specific visual design and interactions.
You delight not only in the way an application works, but in how it looks, and have an excellent understanding of Android interaction design. Complex cross fades, card flips and other Android animation details are something you love working on because it can help you execute the perfect user experience.
You stay up-to-date on the Android platform and can provide insightful advice about leveraging native platform APIs or evaluating and leveraging wrappers.
You believe remote teams are the future of work, or are at least excited about the idea. You have experience working with remote teams or can adjust your work/management style to be remote-friendly. About Us
Help Scout is a remote team with employees in eleven states and six countries (seven in the Boston office). We optimize the team for excellence over geography and overcome remote challenges through transparency, trust, and video conferencing.
