Software Engineer | Austin, TX | OwnLocal (YC W2010)

Positions: Software Engineer, Senior Software Engineer, Senior Front End Software Engineer

TL;DR: Full-time, local only. RoR, Go, JavaScript, SQL, ElasticSearch but we think you can learn these things on the job if you're competent. We treat employees like humans and pay market rates.

Our web apps are Ruby on Rails but recently more and more of our stack has been in Go and JS. We've built a big API on ElasticSearch which serves billions of requests per month.

We're interested in computer vision, OCR, speech recognition and video transcoding because these things are all part of our bread and butter -- small business marketing.

OwnLocal is dedicated to having a quality work environment for everyone. On our engineering team we value collaboration over competition, respect work-life balance and solve problems without blaming people. We have a "no assholes" policy. We're big enough to be stable but small enough that everyone still knows everyone else in the company. We pay market rates, $90k and up (for a senior software engineer) depending on experience and have great health insurance.

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

As you lay around in your summer post-barbecue funk second-guessing your life decisions, consider making a move to a new career path, or transitioning to a growing organization doing important and exciting work... 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/

Microcorruption - http://microcorruption.com/

If you're ready to apply, contact us at: https://www.nccgroup.trust/us/careers/.

We also have a rapidly expanding Risk Management and Governance group looking for all levels of infosec architecture and policy experience. We'd love to hear from you as we expand those teams: https://www.nccgroup.trust/us/about-us/careers/risk-manageme...

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 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

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

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 a list of 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 SF, NYC, Santa Monica/LA, Palo Alto, Seattle, Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Atlanta, Austin, Dallas/Ft Worth, Toronto, London, Paris, Dublin, Tokyo, Sydney, Berlin, Singapore and Beijing, with more coming, though not all are hiring.

We're broken into three main divisions: Pivotal Labs (yes, that Pivotal Labs), Pivotal Cloud R&D and Pivotal Big Data.

-- Pivotal Labs helps clients to become better at product 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 R&D is where we build the best cloud platform available. We're the majority contributors to the Cloud Foundry project. 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.

-- Generally

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.

To see all our open jobs and apply directly, follow this referral URL: http://grnh.se/xiy346

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?)

I may not be able to reply immediately, as I am just an engineer here.

CloudFlare https://www.cloudflare.com/ | San Francisco, CA; London, UK; Singapore, SG; Urbana-Champaign, IL; Austin, TX | VISA, ONSITE

CloudFlare is building a better Internet -- performance and security optimization at the edge. Our long term goal is to give every site the same performance, security, and reliability that major sites like Google and Facebook accomplish, without any specialized network hardware or complicated administration. We enhance millions of sites, including this one. We're hiring for a variety of roles -- started 2015 at 128, ended around 220, doubling again in 2016.

This is a perfect time to join -- product market fit is established, but there's a lot of great engineering, product, sales, and support work to be done. We've publicly said we're profitable and on track for long term independent success. You may wish to check out our blog to see the kinds of engineering work we do. (https://blog.cloudflare.com/). https://www.cloudflare.com/join-our-team has a listing of positions.

We're always hiring for operations/SRE, sales, general systems engineering (mostly in Go, nginx, and network, as well as DNS at scale), and web development. Specific roles we're keen to hire include:

0) Great operations/SRE staff: operating our system at scale (80+ datacenters around the world, 24x7 coverage, >4 million sites) requires highly competent, hard-working, and communicative engineers.

1) Product designer(s) -- we're looking for great talent to help build UX for new products, and to improve the interface and user experience of our existing products. We have a range of customers, from consumers with a single blog all the way through some of the largest sites on the Internet, and designing interfaces which work well for all of these users is a big challenge -- are you up to it?

2) Great front-end engineers -- building new UI/UX to expose controls and data to customers is an increasing portion of what we do. Our current front-end stack is Backbone + Marionette with Browserify and Sass. Our new projects are using React + Redux + Babel + css-modules, and generally adopting Higher Order Components. We're also starting the process of re-imagining our main WWW Front-end stack with a migration to Redux.

3) Systems Engineer -- looking for people to help serve even more traffic, build infrastructure for security and robustness, and contribute back to open source projects. We make extensive use of nginx, lua/luajit, and ssl-at-scale.

4) Really interested in people who want to help fix problems for Internet publishers (articulate what those are and how you think you could help) (Also -- We're particularly interested in people with Mandarin experience; we have a joint venture with Baidu, and want to make the experience for both Chinese Internet users and Chinese sites abroad as great as it can be.) The interview process is a phone screen with a recruiter, then one or two technical interviews by phone, then a full day of onsite interviews. We are trying to shorten the period between interviews (it has dragged on due to very busy hiring managers, in the past), so please ping the internal recruiter at any time if you feel things have stalled. Generally we get an answer back to candidates within a week of the on site interview.

If you're interested, please apply through the https://www.cloudflare.com/join-our-team link
