Expo | Software Developer | Palo Alto, CA | ONSITE, FULL-TIME | https://expo.io

Expo (formerly Exponent) lets developers build truly native apps that work across both iOS and Android by writing them once in just JavaScript. It's open source and free and uses React Native. Several of our engineers are core contributors to React Native, and we regularly collaborate with Facebook and other companies on the direction of the framework.

Our technology is built around an Android/iOS application which allows developers to load their JavaScript projects on the fly with no native build dependencies. Out of the box, developers using Expo get access to native mobile APIs like push notifications, camera, maps, and more (https://docs.getexponent.com/versions/v15.0.0/sdk/index.html).

We have a lot of irons in the fire, and we're looking for engineers who can comfortably own and work on multiple projects. Some examples of recent projects at Expo:

* Creating cross-platform APIs (like our new WebGL implementation) that provide developers native mobile functionality within JavaScript

* Building Snack (https://snack.expo.io), a JSFiddle-esque tool for React Native

* Designing and implementing a community front-end to explore applications built on Expo

* Building the foundation of a scalable infrastructure to host our take on a new mobile web

Some projects that are underway or on the horizon for us:

* Greatly expanding the functionality available in our SDK's API

* Improved monitoring and alerting for our infrastructure

* Increasing our test coverage and improving overall reliability

Some buzzwords: React Native, JavaScript (ES6/ES7, Flow), Android, iOS, Node.js, Electron, Go, Kubernetes, Google Cloud. We don't expect candidates to already be proficient in these, but it's what we're currently using day-to-day.

Please send an email to jobs@expo.io and mention this post if you'd like to start a conversation with us. Definitely include links to any applicable resources: resume/CV, your blog, GitHub profile, recent projects or open source contributions, etc. Typical interviews with us include remote pairing, small take-home projects (1-2 hours), and we usually finish with some more traditional in-person interviews.

Amazon Web Services | SDE / SysDE / Research/Data Scientist | Seattle, Palo Alto (ONSITE) | VISA, aws.amazon.com, AS16509

The Internet is the world’s most complex network, with over 57,402 unique networks connected together, it contains hundreds of millions of edges and nodes. It is THE most pervasive, important, and complicated communications network in the world -- somewhere out there things are about to go south. One of the core backbone routers of a major Tier-1 Internet provider is having a bad day. It started with a transient, yet persistent, problem which was only detectable by a slight increase in dropped packets that went mostly unnoticed. An hour later the router suffered a catastrophic failure dumping 500Gbps of traffic onto an already congested alternate path causing ripples across the Internet, disrupting websites and other Internet based services on the U.S Eastern seaboard. Social media is ablaze as frustrated people rant about their favorite website, video, or gaming service being down, or so slow that it’s unusable. While the Internet burns, our customers are humming away oblivious to the disaster. If you have an insatiable curiosity, love the process of discovery, and you’re reading this with a grin... we should talk. Come join us and...

* Do what nobody else in the world is doing... literally.

* Gain knowledge and expertise on the inner workings of the Internet, working with top-tier Network Engineers

* Define and Develop Amazon’s Internet Monitoring architecture

* Play in the piles of data to discover patterns that push our understanding and knowledge of Internet performance and availability anomalies

* Build massive real-time systems which inform and drive complex changes across the Internet

* Gain practical experience building software using Amazon Web Services

We are hiring for SDE/SysDE I (Entry Level), SDE/SysDE II (Mid-Level), Senior SDE, and Research/Data Scientist I/II (Entry/Mid Level). We may have an opening for a Data Engineer I/II in the future.

Sound like fun? Email me: nahtnow at amazon dot com.

(*) Note, I currently don’t have openings for interns or just-graduated college students. For internships or recent college grad positions please apply here: https://www.amazon.jobs/en/team/university-tech

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

Pivotal's goal is to transform the way the world builds software. We 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 many offices worldwide including SF, NYC, Toronto, London, Palo Alto (pivotal.io/locations) and more coming. We're broken into three main divisions: Pivotal Labs (that Pivotal Labs), Cloud R&D and Big Data.

-- Pivotal Labs helps clients to become better at product development. For engineering we are religiously lean and agile. 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 cloud (Pivotal Web Services).

Cloud R&D is also responsible for Pivotal Tracker and Spring.

-- 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, 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 NYC beer fridge has more IPAs than I prefer but I guess that's life in paradise.

-- Applying

You can also email me at jchester+hn-apr17@pivotal.io if you have questions. I won't reply to copypasta. I may not be able to reply immediately, as I am just an engineer here. These help me earn a referral bonuses, which I appreciate. I can give the non-referral link upon request.
