Security Engineer | Sprout Social | <https://sproutsocial.com> | Onsite (Chicago, IL) | Full-time

Sprout Social is a fun company with an awesome product that is looking for an Information Security Engineer to expand our security group at our HQ in downtown Chicago. (We're happy to have you relocate, but we don't offer relocation assistance. We also don't do visa sponsorship.)

If you read the posting <https://bitly.com/sproutinfosecjob> you'll find that we're looking for a pretty well rounded (and at least somewhat experienced) security professional with a diverse skill set. Here's a sampling of the kinds of things that you'll be asked to help with:

* Vulnerability Scanning

* Basic Web App pen testing

* Security education/training

* Security code review (Python/Java/JavaScript/PHP/ObjC/Swift)

* Policy drafting


* Log management/SIEM

* Network design

* Incident Response

* and more...

This is a small enough security group that if it is related to security, you will probably touch it at some point. If that kind of experience sounds like fun, send us an application (again, <https://bitly.com/sproutinfosecjob>).

If you have questions about the job, you can email me at bob@..., but please don't send me applications or resumes. (I'm in security, not recruiting.) Those go to the apply link (see above).

Jupiter Technologies Corp. | Chicago, IL | Full-Time | Onsite

Early stage stealth startup seeks extremely-talented founding engineer to help build a new gateway to the internet. Founder has a demonstrably strong track record in perhaps the most competitive quantitative field there is, and, in his new field, he expects to win. Hours will be longer than you would work elsewhere, and, for a period, cash pay, while sufficient, will be lower than you could get elsewhere. Equity percentage, meaning, control, responsibility, opportunity, learning, and power will all be much better than you could get elsewhere.

You would be working from a small office in Lincoln Park, right by the zoo and park.

Looking for a winner. Someone with high standards, high ambition, and the judgement to know what’s important and what’s not. Track record and attitude much more important than pedigree. The more experience building world-class software the better, but junior candidates will also be considered.

Technologies: Java, Kotlin, Swift, a bit of JavaScript, and AWS.

Email resume and/or github profile to austin@jupiter.ai. Next step is phone screen and then an interview at office.

Pivotal | ONSITE at many locations worldwide | Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Pre/Post-Sales Engineers, Ops, Sales

We value aptitude over alma mater, empathy over APIs. It doesn't matter whether your resumé 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, Beaverton, Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Atlanta, Austin, 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. 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

You know the drill. This Sunday you'll call your mother, or if she lives nearby, pay her a visit. She'll passive aggressively suggest lifestyle alterations that will likely lead to the creation of a grandchild in her life, and you'll smile and nod. Why not change the conversation this year? Tell her about that amazing job opportunity in the field of information security that you'll be applying for so she can be proud and perplexed at the same time! You can stop scrolling. You've found that opportunity with NCC Group!

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/
