Seneca Systems | Redwood City, CA | Full Time

Seneca Systems is the company behind Romulus, a constituent system-of-record and service request management platform for local governments. Think Salesforce + Zendesk for cities.

Our mission is to elevate democracy at the local level by building software that solves the everyday, unsexy little problems of public servants.

We don't care what TechCrunch or ProductHunt think of our work. We're solving problems we don't want our kids to have.

## What we need

- Product marketing/go to market strategist: Your goal is to do what Salesforce did for enterprise and Square did for SMBs: bring transformative technology to markets others were too scared to touch.


- Government Technology Advisor:

Giving outstanding Romulus demos to state and local government teams.

Performing outbound and inbound sales activities including prospecting, follow-up, and closing. Building strong relationships with hundreds of government representatives and staff members. Turning successful sales into referrals.


- Postgres Database Engineer:

From GIS to high-performance search, we have a few dozen customers in large cities (e.g. Chicago, Detroit, Miami) and tens of millions of records. As we move to serve America's 330 million constituents, coupled with the unique security and auditing requirements of government software, infrastructure cannot be an after-thought.

We push everything (triggers, constraints, source-of-truth) as far down the stack as possible. We love Postgres and so should you.

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, we need to develop APIs that enable analytics workflows. For developers, we need to minimize latency to allow near-real-time applications. For policy analysts without advanced data munging skills, we need to present interfaces that make the data easy to discover and use.

Technologies: You'll mostly be programming in Python. (The AoT storage system - https://github.com/waggle-sensor/beehive-server - and our 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 most days, but we're flexible about which of our sites you want to work at: Downtown Chicago, University of Chicago campus, or Argonne National Laboratory. Perks: Everything we do is open source. Great university benefits.

Official job description: http://jobopportunities.uchicago.edu/applicants/Central?quic...

Email me (willengler@uchicago.edu) or apply through the University of Chicago job listing.

Pivotal | ONSITE SF, NYC, Palo Alto and many, many locations worldwide | Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Pre/Post-Sales Engineers, Operators, Sales

We value aptitude over alma mater, empathy over APIs. It doesn't matter whether your résumé says PHP or PhD: if you're smart, empathetic and know some stuff, 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. Moving between divisions, temporarily or permanently, is possible.

We have offices in San Francisco, New York City, Santa Monica LA, Palo Alto, Seattle, Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Toronto, London, Dublin, Tokyo, Sydney, Berlin, Singapore and Beijing, with more coming.

We are constantly thinking about how we work and how we can work more sensibly, effectively and enjoyably.

-- 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.

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 available.

-- Big Data is our suite of battled-hardened products, now open sourced. Greenplum tackles massive datasets with the comfort of PostgreSQL. Apache HAWQ (incubating) brings Greenplum's distributed query planner to Hadoop. Gemfire, donated as Apache Geode (incubating), is an in-memory distributed grid with years of high performance in high-stakes systems.

-- Generally

At our offices we have free breakfast, weekly tech talks, good benefits and competitive pay. You'll probably learn more, more quickly, than any other time in your career. Ping pong isn't 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 see the available jobs and apply through our website: https://pivotal.io/careers. If you do, please mention my name. You can also email me at jchester+hn@pivotal.io to answer any questions you might have. Either of these helps me score one of our referral bonsues (did I mention our generous referral scheme?)

For what it's worth, I'm just an engineer, so my replies might not be immediate. I hope that's OK.

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

Nothing is genuine today. The posts in your feed are all gags, and you have to convince your relatives that no, Trader Joe's isn't closing all of its locations, UNCLE KEN. The only thing that is real, that can be counted on 365 days a year, is that NCC Group is always looking for great security minds.

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 have need for an Experienced Cryptographic Analyst in the short-term, as well: https://www.nccgroup.trust/us/about-us/careers/security-cons...

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 have a recent opening for a Verification Consultant, as well: https://www.nccgroup.trust/us/about-us/careers/software-escr...

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/

We'd love to hear from you! NCC Group Recruiting Team
