We've got some extremely strong technologists, passionate about open source working here trying to create a best in breed delivery system and cloud platform for our software.
We treat our config mgmt process like a software pipeline and we've a lot of software engineers on staff working on this problem hand in hand with system engineers.

#4 of 5Pivotal | ONSITE at many locations worldwide | Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Pre/Post-Sales Engineers, Ops, Sales
Pivotal's goal is to change the way the world makes software and we kinda sorta really mean it.
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.
We have offices in San Francisco, New York City, Santa Monica/LA, Palo Alto, Seattle, Beaverton, Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Atlanta, Austin, Dallas/Ft Worth, Toronto, London, Paris, Dublin, Tokyo, Sydney, Berlin, Singapore and Beijing, with more coming.
We're broken into three basic divisions: Pivotal Labs (yes, that Pivotal Labs), Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Pivotal Big Data.
-- 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 and it's still zooming up and to the right. Except for 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.
At our offices we have free breakfast, weekly tech talks, excellent 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 email@example.com 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?)
I may not be able to reply immediately, as I am just an engineer here.
#5 of 5Jet.com | https://jet.com/ | Hoboken (very close to NYC) | Dublin | Kansas City | Full-time | Onsite
90k - 215k, plus equity
^^ That figure is derived from our comp table, which is freely available among employees, and from the positions we're hiring for on the careers page (that is to say, there are positions that pay more than that but I don't see any postings for them on the careers page)
(From our careers page)
We need super smart engineers from all levels to help us build one of the best engineered e-commerce platform in the world (big talk we know, but that is our goal!). Our engineers combine creativity, curiosity, and drive to continuously perfect and revolutionize Jet from the inside out. We are looking to bring more intellectually curious engineers who are passionate about technology in general (Jet is a technology first company and prides itself on its culture of learning and knowledge sharing and we want all our engineers to be as passionate as we are!)
Our platform is largely an event driven platform implemented via a microservice architecture. The platform runs on Microsoft Azure and uses a large number of technologies and middle ware. The bulk of backend code is written in a functional style (F#) and our system of record is an event sourced system (essentially a log of all actions on the platform). We use a mix of Kafka, Redis, Elastic Search, Azure SQL, Event Store and Azure Storage for our data stores. About 50% of the platform runs on Linux and the rest Windows (although we move into more containerization we will see a shift towards Linux).
I've been working at Jet since mid-February, and I can honestly say this is the best job I've ever had. It personally checks off every single box I could have a for a dream job:
- Insanely fast-growing startup. We're the fastest startup to reach a billion dollar valuation, for whatever that's worth.
- Functional programming in F#. Never been more productive coding.
- Tech talks and workshops all the time. I'm learning more than I ever have.
- Transparent compensation structure. You can't see everyone's salary per se, but we have a comp table where you can look up what the salary is for a given position.
- Extremely competent management. It feels like they really care about employees' happiness here, we've got experienced people at the helm, and it is amazing to see what a company can look like when you have a fantastic management team bringing their A-game. Really, it's incredible to have to try hard to find something to complain about.
- All the trappings of modern startup life. Free gym membership, lots of free food, etc.
We're hiring people of all different types of experience for all different types of roles. More information about specific roles can be found here: https://jet.com/careers/. You can apply on the individual role pages.
If you have any questions (commuting from NYC, about Hoboken, what's going on in the company, anything really), feel free to ask here or send a message to "nat" at the domain that I work on.
