    On being a Security Engineer at balena

    We maintain a service infrastructure for IoT devices and provide our own device operating system. You will design, develop and deploy security controls and concepts strechting from cloud based applications to systems that run on embedded devices.

    People who are successful engineers are well-rounded generalists and great communicators. They are eager to take responsibility for a project, and are able to make good decisions about the project because they have the context of what's important.

    We don't require engineers to be already familiar with the technologies we use. We are happy to invest in people that showcase a strong understanding of the challenges of building secure distributed systems.

    Responsibilities

    • Actively invest back in our own technology, libraries, and frameworks
    • Be highly motivated to produce great code
    • Understand security best practices and strive to apply them in your work
    • Assist in new security control initiatives
    • Assist with the development and documentation of security architectures and roadmaps
    • Evaluate and address security reports and security problems
    • Design, architect, and own the execution of your projects
    • Ensure the architecture of our distributed system remains cohesive
    • Collaborate, brainstorm, and coordinate work with other balenistas
    • Understand the high-level goals, and thus know how to prioritize your work
    • Work efficiently with a certain amount of ambiguity in the tasks you're executing

    About balena

    Balena provides a software platform that helps developers build, deploy and manage code on connected devices. We brought Docker to embedded GNU/Linux devices in 2013 and have been building our IoT toolkit ever since. We also maintain a variety of successful open source projects including EtcheropenBalenabalenaOS and balenaEngine and made contributions to high-exposure projects such as DockerElectron, and AppImage.

    Our technology is open, standards-based, and proven in production across a wide range of scenarios from drones, 3D printers, point-of-sale devices, tidal turbines, skyscrapers and more. Our investors include DFJ, Aspect Ventures, GE, and Ericsson.

    Balena is a highly distributed, remote-friendly company with a pretty much flat hierarchy. Our organization is adaptive, getting feedback signals from our users and systems. Right now we organize ourselves by projects, which allow us to build complex features and solve big problems, while staying mutable. As a distributed group, we rely on clear communication and the rule of "assume positive intent" to help us work together across time zones, cultures and first languages. Our base of operations is nominally London, though really we are living all over the world: from Barcelona to Bulgaria, Argentina to Vietnam, and many more.

    REQUIREMENTS

    Need to have:

    • Desire to make yourself and others more effective. You'd be bothered by an inefficient process
    • Good understanding of software engineering practices and how to apply them
    • Excellent written communication skills, and fluency in English
    • Self-discipline to take on a project and push it to completion without too much management. You also know when to ask for help
    • Highly organized, able to handle many threads at once, and keep things moving
    • Ability to identify security issues and risks, and develop mitigation plans
    • Strong knowledge of current security threats, trends, and mitigations
    • Knowledge of network and web related protocols (e.g. TCP/IP, HTTP/S, SSH, OAuth2, SAML)

    Nice to have:

    • A sample of your work (URL or attached sample)
    • Contributions to OSS projects (please include a URL)
    • Having worked remotely before
    • Experience with balena as a user
    • Experience with embedded GNU/Linux, anything ranging from personal projects with a Raspberry Pi to commercial or industrial scenarios with custom devices
    • Experience and detailed technical knowledge of security engineering, system and network security, authentication and security protocols, cryptography, and application security

    Make sure to let us know if any of these items apply to you!

    BENEFITS

    • Work with an extremely talented, diverse team
    • Equipment of your choice
    • Remote-friendly
    • Flexible working hours
    • Generous vacation policy
    • Annual company gathering in an international location
    • We send you hardware for side projects!

    Job Description

    We’re looking to hire a backend developer to join our team working on PSPDFKit for Web. We are building a modern PDF SDK with technologies like Elixir, React, PostgreSQL, Docker, and WebAssembly. Your role as a backend developer will be to implement new features, improve the reliance of our server component, and work on scalability problems in a well-tested Elixir application.


    You Will:

    Work as part of a small, driven team that builds new features and fixes existing issues on a steady schedule.

    Make architectural decisions that will impact thousands of products for years.

    Write readable and well-documented code with meaningful tests so that we can ship new releases often and without fear.

    Take the time to do things correctly instead of coming up with quick fixes.

    Collaborate with the entire company (Android, iOS, Windows, Core, Support, Design, Marketing, and Sales) using Slack, GitHub, and Zoom.

    Support our customers in integrating our products, help them debug and fix issues, and collaborate with them to understand their requirements for our products.

    You Should:

    Be familiar with or have an interest in learning Elixir and its ecosystem of tools and packages.

    Have a high-level understanding of the web technology stack (e.g. HTTP, WebSockets, cookies, proxies, and caching).

    Have a strong interest in scaling PostgreSQL or a similar RDBMS, as well as understand the importance of consistency and efficiency when designing the data model for an application.

    Be eager to learn more about systems design, highly concurrent applications, immutable data, and functional programming models.

    Have good communication skills and enjoy working on a passionate team.

    Have a pragmatic approach to problem solving.

    Have a good command of English for writing documentation and occasional blog posts.

    Understand the challenges of working on a distributed team.

    Please note that you can be a perfect fit even if not everything we’ve outlined above applies to you. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.


    We Offer:

    The ability to work remotely and set your own schedule.

    A family-friendly work environment.

    Room for personal and professional development by encouraging learning and experimenting.

    Two planned company events during the year (for example, in Croatia, Italy, Spain, Greece, and Vienna).

    A motivated team that enables you to do your best work.

    A generous vacation policy of five weeks, plus an additional allowance for conferences.

    An Application Should Include:

    A writeup explaining who you are as a programmer. We are especially interested in knowing how you started, what projects you have loved (or not loved) working on, what motivates you, and what surprising things you’ve learned since you began programming.

    A piece of code (it doesn’t have to be your own) that does something you find interesting, and an explanation why.

    Links to online profiles you use (e.g. GitHub, Twitter).

    A description of your work history (such as a resume, LinkedIn profile, or prose).

    Your Day at PSPDFKit

    Your day at PSPDFKit starts with an asynchronous today message in our team’s Slack channel, where you outline your goals for the day so that everyone on the team knows what everyone else is working on. All our regular company meetings occur on the same day each week, so most of the time you’ll be able to focus on your assigned tasks without interruptions.

    You’ll work on adding features to our Elixir-based server product and improving the stability of our existing applications together with our customers. We strongly believe in code quality over quantity, which is why new changes undergo a proposal phase where everyone on the team is invited to collaborate. We write unit, integration, and end-to-end tests and do peer reviews for every change.

    Beyond working on features and bug fixes, we also take time to help you improve upon your personal goals (through regular 1on1s and mentoring). Our remote-first focus allows you to set up working hours that best fit your daily routine. You can read more about our onboarding period here.

    • Compensation package at $140-170k depending on experience, with healthcare, stock options, and benefits
    • We are headquartered in Durango, CO, so you're in for a treat. Located in the heart of the San Juan Mountains, forget the hassles and headaches of city life and enjoy the incredible work-life balance at your doorstep—hiking, mountain biking, paddling, and skiing—that only Colorado can offer.

    Bear Group is a leading web development firm based in Seattle looking for an experienced backend web developer to join our team. You will have the opportunity to work with leading companies and marketing teams to develop complex sites and integrations between systems.
     
    We are a fully distributed team that primarily builds in PHP on the Magento and Drupal platforms for ecommerce and content management sites. Since we are fully remote, you can work from anywhere! We do require at least 4 hours of working time overlap with the Pacific time zone work day where most of our clients are located. As a highly client focused organization, you will occasionally need to meet according to their schedule. This typically falls between 10 and 5 Pacific time, and we strive to give you plenty of time to focus on development.
     
    Working with a variety of clients, we fluidly form groups including a Technical Project Manager, a Quality Analyst, and one or more developers to complete sprints of work. The type of work depends on the client, but often includes:
    • Developing client web sites using Drupal and Magento Commerce
    • Focus on front-end development: HTML/CSS/Javascript coding, with Twig and PHP at template level
    • Balancing workload across many projects simultaneously
    • Quality assurance and testing across projects
    • Collaborating cross-functionally and with a diverse group of clients
    • Working with business development to assess and price new client projects
     
    You will need to be self-motivating and able to work independently most of the time, but we have a friendly and capable team to collaborate with when you encounter obstacles. You’ll need to have a minimum of 3-5 years of related work experience, a BA/BS degree, and experience with Drupal, Magento or similar open source frameworks. You’ll also need to be visually oriented with experience in Sketch or Photoshop and a good understanding of content organization and concepts within information architecture. Experience in client-service environments is a must and you’ll need to be professional and client service oriented; positive and proactive; able to react swiftly to meet client expectations.
     
    Since the technology world is constantly evolving, you’ll be expected to keep up with the current technologies and practices. To help with this, we provide an annual education stipend that can be used for attending relevant conferences or continued education courses.
     
    During your first week you will work closely with one or our senior developers to set up your new system and familiarize with our processes and tools. The system will be either Mac, Linux, or Windows to your preference, and we use Docker containers for a consistent development server stack. Other tools you will use include:
    • Git for source control
    • Bitbucket for Git repositories
    • Jira for project management
    • Confluence for documentation
    • Slack for communication.
    As you get your feet under you we will introduce some project work, again in collaboration with a senior developer on a sprint they are currently working on. Ultimately our developers work independently on your own tickets and sprints.
     
    In addition to competitive pay, a new computer, insurance, and 401k match, you’ll also receive:
    • 3 Weeks PTO plus approximately 10 vacation days annually
    • $1500 annual education stipend
    • Software stipend for the tools that you prefer to do the job
    To learn more about the company, visit www.beargroup.com
     
    We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
  • Development specialized on the free software project Open edX, used by many universities and companies to run online courses. See edx.org, stanford.edu or fun-mooc.fr for examples of Open edX instances.

    The Open edX platform is a large Python/Django codebase, with good code standards and architecture (a lot of the edX engineers come from MIT).

Tasks are very varied, from developing core platform features, custom exercises and tools for specific courses (XBlocks), customizing and deploying instances, working fullstack, operating our service infrastructure, improving our hosting platform, etc. You won't get bored here.


    Most of your work is published as free software (Open edX is released under the AGPL license, which requires clients to release modifications under the same license), and you would also contribute to the free software project, pushing most of your developments upstream through pull requests, contributing features, documentation or help on mailing-lists.


    - 3+ years working with Python
    - Experience with Python web frameworks, specifically Django
    - 3+ years of HTML, Javascript, and CSS (experience with React is a big plus!)
    - Experience with unit testing
    - You feel comfortable working in a Linux environment, specifically Debian or Ubuntu
    - Experience with databases: MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL
    - Experience with contributing to free software projects, and communicating within a free software community

    You would have to work with tasks from the following categories, but you would be able to pick up the skills on the job if you don't master this yet:

    - DevOps experience, especially on Debian/Ubuntu servers, Terraform, Vault, Packer, Prometheus, ELK, Docker. We are building a modern infrastructure and having a strong DevOps presence on top of core software engineering skills is a big plus with us.

    - Cloud computing, like AWS or OpenStack

    - Configuration management tools such as Ansible

    - RabbitMQ, Redis & Elasticsearch

    - git source control

    - Mobile development (iOS and/or Android)

    - Managing clients & projects from beginning to completion (senior developer)

    - Public speaking at conferences (you would present a talk every year at the Open edX Con)


    We are a team of twenty developers, all working remotely from Europe, North & South America, Asia & Australia. You would arrive at a critical moment, as we scale up to handle increasing demand from clients on the edX platform. The company is not affiliated with edX, but contributing and working with them on various projects. This is a full time position, were you would be able to work remotely from anywhere you want, as long as you have a good internet connexion. : )

All remote employees are offered a budget for an ergonomic chair and standing desk at home.
    We discourage our team members from working unreasonable hours, beyond the typical 40 hours per week. And it's important that we take time off and recharge when necessary, that's why we have a minimum vacation policy that encourages us to take a minimum of 15 vacation days per year. We also value continuous improvement with a monthly learning stipend, so there are plenty of opportunities to learn new subjects or hone existing skills.

    We believe in good documentation and proactive communication. Inclusivity is a priority of everyone on our team. Read more about our team values and our operating principles in this blog post.

    We’re a rapidly growing startup transforming the way enterprises engage their customers when communicating over the phone. Some things that make us different include:

    A team of founders. Most of us have either been founders or ‘first hire’ at startups that have been acquired or gone public. We know and love building products that create big companies.

    We’re not your typical CRUD app. Our software runs across many different platforms (web/chrome/iOS/Android) and connects to a core communications infrastructure that we’ve built from scratch.

    We love our customers. Whether it’s building resources, going on-site or staying up late with them on launch day, we go above and beyond to make them successful.

    REQUIREMENTS

    About You:


    An experienced software engineer (7+ years) who has built non-trivial production systems and enjoys finding scalable solutions to interesting problems. You’ve worked across a variety of tech stacks and know how to pick the right tool for the job. You are not only comfortable tracking down and fixing production issues, but can anticipate where issues will arise before they do. You are the person your peers come to for help. The prospect of learning new technologies should excite you.


    Responsibilities:


    Designing and implementing new features and systems.

    Assessing and fixing production incidents and bugs and putting in place systems to prevent them.

    Be a technical resource for other members of the engineering team.

    Mentoring junior engineers

    Job Requirements:

    7+ years work experience as a software engineer

    Experience building highly-available backend services

    Knowledge of relational databases

    Desire to work on a small team that collaborates on technical and product ideas

    Strong work ethic and team player

    Experience working on the JVM

    Experience with containers (Docker)

    This position


    As a DevOps Engineer, you are embedded within an engineering team and have one foot in operations, the other in development. You care deeply about uptime, reliability and automation. You help your colleagues make product changes quickly and all of us deliver value to our clients faster. You do things like help get new services into production, ensure effective monitoring and alerting and help us grow our infrastructure platform to accommodate the demands of a growing client base, and so forth.

    You


    You will fit in well with us, if you:

    • Reside in North or South America. Yes, we are a distributed company, but since we are still small, we like to minimize the time zone spread within the team.

    • Are an excellent communicator. In our small team, English is the official language. You need to be able to articulate complex ideas efficiently and effectively. When people do not share an office, it is essential to pay extra attention to communication.

    • Have a solid technical background. You should have at least 5 years of professional experience and be able to point to a track record of caring about production systems with significant usage.

    • Feel at home with Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Amazon Web Services (AWS), Docker, Kubernetes, Jenkins, Linux and shell scripting. You have been working in current cloud-based environments (such as AWS or GCP), but you don’t feel tied to one platform and generally appreciate picking the “right tool for the job.”

    • Like to learn and strive to do so often. As a company we improve to the extent that our team does. It starts with each individual. Humility and an open mind help a lot.

    • Ideally know what it is like to work in distributed development teams, or better yet, thrive in them. It probably means you already know you don’t need a structured office environment with a manager who checks in on you once a day. Likewise, you know that you will do best from your home office.


    We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better environment for our employees and a better product for our users and the communities we serve.

    Principals only please.

    • Precision and correctness are two of your core values. Thanks in part to your formal CS education, you have an excellent understanding of algorithm performance and can make good decisions regarding tradeoffs. You know the fundamentals of how computers and networks operate and have programmed in a low level language such a C or Go. Your Node.js experience builds on top of these fundamentals and you have a complete understanding of the Node event loop. 

      You have experience building complex systems and keeping them humming. You find great satisfaction in solving challenges that only appear at scale. It helps that you're an expert at troubleshooting problems using a vast amount of logs generated across multiple services. Once you've identified a performance bottleneck, you know how to correct it.


      Whilst you spend most of your time writing software, setting up infrastructure from time to time is no big deal and you're comfortable working with Linux, Docker and GCP/AWS. 

      Does this sound like you? If it does, join us and change the way modern web apps are built! You’ll be directly responsible for shaping the architecture behind our unique infrastructure. This is not just a standard webapp but a complex, highly elastic, multi-cloud browser rendering service consisting of mostly stateless and some stateful services.
