UCLA Library (http://library.ucla.edu) | Linux Development Support Engineer | Los Angeles, CA | Full-time career, onsite | 2 positions available

This is a new role within the UCLA Library's IT team. We have two positions open for Linux Development Support Engineers.

Here is the link to the job description and to apply: http://ucla.in/25noTHw

We are looking for Senior Linux System Administrators with backgrounds in supporting development teams and project managers. What's great about this position is the autonomy we have to create environments that serve the vision of the Library. We'll be working on creating continuous integration methods, using configuration management tools, developing infrastructures in in-house virtual infrastructures and in clouds services (like Amazon).

We value candidates' communication, organization, documentation, and overall "soft skills" just as high, if not more so, than technical abilities.

We are a fun IT organization with many interesting projects. We support websites that host collections of materials where our Library has the only copies of the images, audio, and video in the entire world. We are working through challenges for how to preserve terabytes of data where if they're lost, there's no getting them back.

The Library is a place where we learn something new every day, and is an awesome place to come to work.

Happy to answer and questions you may have: sgurnick at library dot ucla dot edu

Riot Games - Los Angeles, CA / St. Louis, MO - Onsite - Full-Time - Software Engineer

We make the game League of Legends, which by various metrics is the most played PC game in the world. That means we have some really fun problems that come with operating at scale, worldwide, 24/7.

We're hiring for a bunch of things (http://riotgames.com/careers) in a few locations worldwide, but I wanted to specifically plug my team, Service Availability. We basically manage all the 'behind the scenes' stuff from data centers to backend microservices. It feels like a tech startup within a game company -- many of our engineers have tech-industry backgrounds (Google, Amazon, Netflix, MS etc).

Engineering blog: https://engineering.riotgames.com/

We're solving problems from the infrastructure layer up, making it easy for developers internally to launch and operate services worldwide, regardless of the underlying hardware/cloud. e.g. building a Docker-based cluster, deployment and build tools, microservice frameworks and interoperability standards, monitoring, logging, and other developer-experience type features. We're also working on services that use that stack to deliver awesome new things to players, e.g. the Riot API. We write a lot of Go, which I'm really excited about.

Our culture is also really interesting, especially for a games company. We've got some Fortune awards etc, but the TLDR is: we have work-life balance, we are focused around personal growth, individuals are very empowered to make change and be part of decision making, and we are very feedback-driven. If you like working in a silo we are not the place for you. We value engineering breadth and the ability to level others up.

If you're a gamer with a tech industry background (you don't have to be a massive League of Legends player, but if you hate the game, you probably won't have a great time working here), you like developer platforms, microservices, distributed systems and scaling problems... we should talk. I'm jlees at riotgames dot com, Jellybear ingame, or you can apply via our site.

PS: Working at a games company surrounded by people who love games as much as you do is really freakin' cool.

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.
