Amazon's speech software, Alexa, is a small team of scientists and software engineers solving complex problems in information retrieval, machine learning, speech and NLP. We have small teams of researchers, linguists and engineers across three offices in Sunnyvale, Cambridge (Kendall Square), and HQ in Seattle. If you are looking for a place to make a big impact on a new product used by millions of people every day - please send me a note! I'd love to discuss. A background in speech technology is not a requirement but an interest is very helpful! firstname.lastname@example.org Looking forward to hearing from you! Best, Emma

BetterHelp is an online counseling platform, we make people's lives better by helping them get 24/7 convenient access to a licensed counselor.
Our main selling points for the HN crowd:
-Engineers operate autonomously, acting as their own project managers and taking complete ownership of their projects, from getting it specced to building, testing, releasing and monitoring after launch. There is no waterfall because there aren't really handoffs.
-We are extremely data driven, every feature or change is a test, we let the data from tests decide.
-We try to do everything as an MVP: since we need data for our decisions we prefer to spend as little time as possible building anything. I know first hand how demoralizing it can be to spend months working on a doomed or pointless project, most of our projects are under 2 weeks, many under one week.

As you kick back in your beach chair with an icy beverage within reach, soaking up the hot August sun and wondering what areas of your body you forgot to apply sunscreen to adequately, take a moment to consider the bigger picture! Perhaps the time is right to make a career (or company) change! If you want to join a dynamic, fast-growing company full of some of the best infosec minds in the business... consider 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!
