    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!

    We're looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to join the engineering team at Zapier. Want to create a simple product that allows anyone to do complex, incredible things with the world's APIs? Then keep reading!

    We know applying for and taking on a new job at any company requires a leap of faith. We want you to feel comfortable and excited to apply at Zapier. To help share a bit more about life at Zapier, here are a few resources in addition to the job description that can give you an inside look at what life is like at Zapier. We hope you'll take the leap of faith and apply.

    Zapier is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce.

    Even though our job description may seem like we're looking for a specific candidate, the role inevitably ends up tailored to the person who applies and joins. Regardless of how well you feel you fit our description, we encourage you to apply if:

    You care deeply about improving frontend technology so our customers can have a great experience using our product.

    About You

    You love code. You love to take raw ideas and build great products with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. You know JavaScript is imperfect, but you embrace its functional side and genuinely enjoy coding with it. You might like to talk about obscure computer science topics, but really, you just want to write simple code and ship new products and features to customers (or improve existing ones).

    You love great UX. You spend most of your time coding, but you also have an eye for great design and a feel for great UX. Maybe you were once a designer (or still are) or maybe your creative outlet has always been the code. Either way, you care about more than just the code.

    You love learning new things. You love researching new tech and driving forward with the implementation details. Your focus is on frontend JavaScript code, but you can dig in wherever needed. Python, CSS, build tools, shell scripts, you name it. If you don't already know it, you're ready to learn it.

    You can balance lots of concerns. Frontend apps have to take into account performance (using networks and devices that we can't control), customer demands, A/B tests, UX research, code quality, a rapidly changing ecosystem of languages and modules, and the list goes on. And we actually want to ship things too! You can balance those demands without getting overwhelmed and keep the needle moving forward.

    You love helping others. You love sharing knowledge with the rest of your team, building shared tooling for other engineers, giving back to the open-source community, and directly helping customers.

     

    Things You Might Do

    Zapier is a small, fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:

    • Research, guide, and execute frontend architecture changes, including but by no means limited to GraphQL, server-side React rendering, and Flow typing.
    • Build reusable React components with modular CSS, manage data on the client with Redux and GraphQL, and test everything with Jest.
    • Measure and resolve performance bottlenecks, using tools like Chrome DevTools, Lighthouse, WebPagetest, or custom tooling.
    • Refactor or improve existing code. We've migrated most of our frontend to React, but we still have some Backbone code to clean up. And we constantly find ways to improve all of our JavaScript code.
    • Work closely with our product, design, and UX teams to create amazing and intuitive experiences that make it effortless to connect different apps together.
    • Help put tools, processes, and documentation in place to improve our code quality.
    • Review code written by other team members or other teams.
    • Ship to hundreds of thousands of users every day while having lots of autonomy in terms of code and feature ownership.
    • Work with complex and varied data structures (APIs can be a little, uh, eccentric).
    • Help out with our Python backend or Node-based developer platform.
    • Share what you know and learn either one-on-one or with lightning talks to the group.
    • Give back to the community via open source and blog posts.
    • Experiment: this is a startup so everything can change as we experiment with doing more custom partnership work
    • As a part of Zapier's all-hands philosophy, help customers via support to ensure they have the best experience possible.

    You’ll also have the opportunity to specialize in a variety of areas of the Zapier codebase, including core product or platform development. Focusing on a specialization will not limit your area for growth at Zapier as each engineer brings a unique perspective and can contribute differently in all areas. We encourage participation and will frequently have engineers contribute across teams to assist in projects.

    About Zapier

    For the past six years, Zapier has been helping people across the world automate the boring and tedious parts of their job. We do that by helping everyone connect the web applications they already use and love.

    We believe that there are jobs a computer is best at doing and that there are jobs a human is best at doing. We want to empower businesses to create processes and systems that let computers do what they are best at doing and let humans do what they are best at doing.

    We believe that with the right tools, you can have big impact with less hassle.

    We believe in small teams. Small teams are fast and nimble. Small teams mean less bureaucracy and less management and more getting things done.

    We believe in a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment. All teammates at Zapier agree to a code of conduct.

    The Whole Package

    Location: Planet Earth.

    If you want to work remote, that's great. If you want to work near others, that's cool too. Our team of 100+ is distributed because it lets us work with the best people. You don't have to be located in the USA either. Some team members live in the United Kingdom, Thailand, India, Nigeria, Taiwan, Guatemala, New Zealand, Australia, and more! You just need the skills and drive to succeed in this role and the ability to work from anywhere.

    Compensation:

    • Competitive salary (we don't use remote as an excuse to pay less)
    • Great healthcare + dental + vision coverage*
    • Retirement plan with 4% company match*
    • Profit sharing
    • 2 annual company retreats to awesome places
    • 14 weeks paid leave for new parents of biological or adopted children
    • Pick your own equipment. We'll set you up with whatever Apple laptop + monitor combo you want plus any software you need.
    • Unlimited vacation policy. Plus we require you to take at least 2 weeks off each year. We see most employees take 4-5 weeks off per year. This isn't a vague policy where unlimited vacation means no vacation.
    • Work with awesome companies around the world. We partner with great software companies all over the world and you'll constantly get to interact with people from these great companies

    *While we take care of our international folks as best we can, currently, healthcare and retirement plans are only available to US-based employees.

     

    How To Apply

    We have a non-standard application process. To jump-start the process we ask a few questions we normally would ask at the start of an interview. This helps speed up the process and lets us get to know you a bit better right out of the gate.

    After you apply, you are going to hear back from us, even if we don't seem like a good fit. In fact, throughout the process, we strive to make sure you never go more than seven days without hearing from us.

    Optional: Share anonymously some demographic information about yourself to help us better track trends related to the backgrounds of candidates interested in working at Zapier in order for us to build a team that represents the users at Zapier and the broader world population.

    Zapier is an equal opportunity employer. We're excited to work with talented and empathetic people no matter their race, color, gender, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, or age. Our code of conduct provides a beacon for the kind of company we strive to be, and we celebrate our differences because those differences are what allow us to make a product that serves a global user base.

To help share a bit more about life at Zapier, here are a few resources in addition to the job description that can give you an inside look at what life is like at Zapier. We hope you’ll take the leap of faith and apply. Zapier is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce. We skew heavily towards candidates who have professional experience with Python. If you have none, or it has been a long time since you worked in Python, you can still apply, but know you’ll be ranked against candidates with current experience. About You You love building new things. Your work could be on our workflow engine, the editor that our customers use to build their Zaps, our platform where partners build their integrations, or any number of areas in between. You’ll have a primary focus on backend development in Python, though may need to jump into the frontend from time to time. Zapier is built on Django, React, node.js and AWS. We use modern tools, which means you’ll have the opportunity to work with software like Memcached, RabbitMQ, Zookeeper, Docker, Redis, Jenkins, Puppet, Ansible and much more.

You’ll have a direct impact on what we work on next. Things You Might Do Zapier is a small, fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you’ll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization.

We encourage participation and will frequently have engineers contribute across teams to assist in projects. About Zapier For the past six years, Zapier has been helping people across the world automate the boring and tedious parts of their job. We do that by helping everyone connect the web applications they already use and love. We believe that there are jobs a computer is best at doing and that there are jobs a human is best at doing.

    At Elastic, we have a simple goal: to solve the world's data problems with products that delight and inspire. As the company behind the popular open source projects — Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Beats — we help people around the world do great things with their data. From stock quotes to real time Twitter streams, Apache logs to WordPress blogs, our products are extending what's possible with data, delivering on the promise that good things come from connecting the dots. The Elastic family unites employees across 30+ countries into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.

    The Elastic Stack is the unparalleled swiss army knife of search and analytics. It takes hundreds of engineers and large infrastructure to keep its development on track. A critical piece of the effort is our multi-cloud, distributed CI environment. We need a dedicated lead to take over the people management, operational health, and delivery of its team.

    What you will be doing
    • Manage and mentor a globally distributed team of 5-10 experienced engineers. You would evaluate performance, give timely feedback, and advocate for their career paths.
    • Work closely with engineering teams and leadership to define requirements and roadmap. The product teams depend on CI constantly. Proactivity is important.
    • Organize effective call rotations to maximize service health and engineer quality of life.
    • Foster a culture of mutual respect, collaboration, and consensus-based decision-making.
    • Commit to software-first principles. We are developers that manage state.
    • Plan for team capacity and help drive recruitment of high quality people.
    What you will bring along
    • Significant experience leading teams of software engineers, preferably in site reliability. You don't need to have been a people manager, but this is a people management role. You can (and should!) write code, but your priority is to help others do it.
    • Significant experience building and deploying complex, and completely automated, systems. We run a multi-cloud, multi-OS environment built upon immutable infrastructure. It's a mixture of off-the-shelf Jenkins and custom software. You'll need technical empathy as you help your reports fulfill their mission.
    • Expert-level programming experience in at least one computer language and deep familiarity with its build and testing ecosystem.
    • Genuine care for the well-being of your employees, striving to be an emotionally intelligent, egoless, humble, servant-leader. A sense of humor is a big help. You believe that a diverse company is a better company.
    Experience/interest in these would be nice:
    • Search and analytics tools, particularly the Elastic Stack. A love for what our company builds will only help.
    • We are a polyglot team; a love for languages would serve you well.
    • Speaking/presenting publicly. You will need to communicate effectively to others.
    • Open source. OSS is our DNA. If you have ever contributed to an open-source project, or even just followed one closely you'll have a good sense for how our company operates.
    Additional Information
    • Competitive pay
    • Equity
    • Catered lunches, snacks, and beverages in most offices
    • An environment in which you can balance great work with a great life
    • Passionate people building great products
    • Employees with a wide variety of interests

    The web engineering team is responsible for all things unsplash.com.
     
    We use modern and well-supported tools to build the best possible version of our product in collaboration with the API and design teams.
     
    At a high level, the web architecture consists of a Node server (TypeScript), with React for rendering on both the server and client.
     
    Over the years, we’ve taken Unsplash from a humble Tumblr blog to a fully-fledged web app supporting tens of millions of users and tons of useful features. At the same time, we’ve improved its performance by leveraging modern techniques like SSR, dynamic chunk-splitting, CDN HTML caching, complex state management using memoization and Observables, etc. We’ve done all that with a lean team of just 2 web developers: frequent code releases and in-depth code reviews help us share knowledge and identify problems early. But there’s still so much more to learn and do, and that’s why we need you!
     
    We designed our company in a way to get as much of the stuff that’s not the creative work out of your way, so you can do your best work. We don’t believe in a top-down, shoulder-tapping, 9–5 type culture. You have the autonomy to manage yourself. We don’t work set hours. We respect flow. We believe you should be able to structure your days for what makes you feel the most energized and creative.
     
    A glance at some of our blog posts and open source work can give you an idea on how we approach and solve our problems:
     
    Recently open sourced libraries:
     
    Recent blog posts:
    You
    If you tick (most of) these boxes, you should get in touch with us:
     
    • You’re comfortable being part of a small, autonomous and distributed team.
    • Being a small team, we dive into everything. You are comfortable working across the full stack, from writing CSS to fine tuning a CDN—although we don’t expect you to know these skills upfront, but you should be willing to learn them when they become necessary.
    • You’re a quick learner who’s able to pick up new concepts whenever necessary.
    • You’re able to adequately prioritize between improving UX, optimizing performance, and building new features.
    • You’re comfortable with React.
    • You care about the end-product beyond just writing the code that makes it work.
     
    It’s a bonus if you have experience with:
    • TypeScript, Redux, Reselect, Observables.
    • front-end performance (e.g. optimising page load, page layout, and React rendering).
    • building a large-scale app
     
    Our team is made up of people who enjoy making things people love. We care about details and we care about quality.
     
    • Generous vacation: 3 weeks MINIMUM vacation.
    • Work from home: We’re a remote first company.
    • Workshops/conferences: Conferences & Learning budget.
    • Company retreats: Team retreats 1-2 times a year.
    • Relocation: If you’d like to relocate to Montreal, we provide $8,000 lump sum to cover out-of-pocket costs associated with relocation
    • Flexible hours: You manage your time. You set your working hours.
    • Maternal/Paternal leave: If you have a baby, you’re paid for any time you need to take off. The time you take off will be your judgment. This is an important time and we don’t want to be deciding which days you should be taking off or not. We’ll be there for you. If we feel the balance is not quite right or if you have any questions, we’ll chat.
    • Pet friendly: Obviously if you work from home, but also if you relocate to Montreal. Our office is pet friendly.
    If you want to work with us, all we want to see is a message from you. Please don’t send a resume. Instead, tell us who you are. Show us relevant things you’ve done that you’re excited about.

    Company Introduction

    Parklink Development Limited provides RFID duplication devices to locksmiths and security professionals.

    Our flagship product is 'Rebadge'. It's a patented machine that duplicates RFID badges for customers. Before Rebadge, it was impossible to duplicate consumer RFID badges. Since the launch of Rebadge, literally hundreds of thousands of people have been able to make copies of their badges, and the number increases every day.

    Each machine is an embedded linux system running Python + Qt, and tethered online.

    Supporting the machines is a RESTful API (CakePHP).

    At LightStep, our mission is to deliver confidence at scale for those who develop, operate, and rely upon today’s powerful software applications. We created LightStep because we understand the massive architectural transformation underway in the software industry, and we saw an opportunity to accelerate it, all while improving the quality of the developer and end-user experience. While we learned a great deal from our experiences building Dapper (Google’s distributed tracing solution) and Monarch (Google’s high-availability metrics solution), LightStep is in many ways a reaction to and a generational improvement beyond those approaches. Our story as individuals and as a company revolves around continuous learning, careful listening, and the belief that these fundamentally new software architectures require fundamentally new solutions.

    The OpenTracing project defines a standard that makes understanding, building, and improving distributed systems easier. In doing so, it improves the quality of open source tools and applications across the board. LightStep wants to support that goal: we all benefit when complex software becomes self-describing. We’re looking for a teammate who is knowledgeable about popular open source technologies and best practices, eager to be an expert on distributed systems performance, and can lend a hand as a teacher, communicator, and open source code contributor to help move the OpenTracing community forward.

    The OSS Engineer role is for software developers with a love for working open source, and interest in product management. In addition writing code, the OSS engineers are expected to show leadership by helping others contribute, champion issues, and managing project roadmaps and backlogs.

    Valued strengths

    • You are self-motivated and are great at prioritization, even when there’s “too much to do.”
    • You have experience working on distributed systems and performance at scale.
    • Capable of engaging with other large OSS projects and champion their adoption of OpenTracing.
    • Comfortable working in multiple languages, and strong language-level expertise in at least one.
    • You’re capable of mediating conflict and managing people who don’t work for you.

    Bonus points if…

    • You’re already an active participant in the OpenTracing community.
    • You have previous experience managing or contributing to a large open source project.
    • You’re a good teacher and public speaker.
    • Have a positive voice on social media.

    Research is the oxygen for intelligent innovation, which is why Respondent is revolutionizing how it’s completed. Our mission is to be the most-trusted global marketplace for research that delivers higher-quality, faster connections to respondents.

    Respondent is a two-sided marketplace that connects market and usability researchers with the highest quality research participants in the world. Our platform gives researchers a single place to quickly find the right participants for their projects, as well as schedule and pay them instantly. It simplifies the work that’s necessary to conducting quality research. Companies like IBM, Airbnb, Uber, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble and many more have already integrated us into their research processes.

    Respondent is not only at the forefront of research we are also at the forefront of work trends. We are firm believers that the world is transitioning to a remote workforce and as a result, are an entirely distributed team. Cities are becoming more expensive and commutes are growing longer. Working on a distributed team gives our team members the chance to live in more affordable and desirable locations without a lengthy commute.

    We are a small, quickly growing startup. Working as a distributed team allows us to hire the best talent regardless of location (right now everyone works in a US Time Zone). As a growing startup all employees work up and down their vertical. You will work on things that seem more senior than you are used to (you’ll be answering problems that no one has the answers to) while simultaneously working on things that seem more junior than you are used to--and everything in between. Additionally, to fill gaps across our small team all employees work outside of what they might consider their normal job responsibilities. This blog post outlines how we work as a distributed team.
    We encourage those who are underrepresented in technology companies to apply!

    Responsibilities:

    * Directly manage seven engineers--we’re growing!--through coaching, giving feedback, having one-on-ones, assisting with career development, giving performance reviews, etc.
    * Hire for and build an incredible engineering culture.
    * Create and improve engineering processes, applications, and systems for scale (you are leading this from the ground up!), which you will need to ensure are documented and communicated. You will build the blueprint, which will be hugely impactful for the company.
    * You will report to the CEO, manage projects and collaborate with key stakeholders, including other teams such as design, product and sales.
    * Perform code reviews (we use Node.js).
    * Guide and build scalable backend applications to support the growing needs of the business.
        * Work with both SQL (we use Postgres) and NoSQL (Neo4j/MongoDB) databases and caching technologies like Redis.
    * Take full ownership and responsibility for building, shipping, and maintaining core features, end to end.
    * Collaborate with our Co-Founder and Architect to scale infrastructure and introduce new technologies.
    * One of your first projects will be to do an audit of how we do things (look at our processes, talk to engineers, etc.) and determine what are priorities should be.

    Who are you?

    * Proven ability to lead high performing teams and to promote an incredible engineering culture
    * A BS degree in Computer Science or other related technical fields preferred
    * Experience with Node.js applications in production (most of our stack), REST APIs, CI/CD and unit testing
    * Comfortable with agile methodologies (scrum, kanban, etc)
    We are looking for someone who matches our level of joy for the work we do, brings something new to the team, and elevates our game. Our values are: Always Researching, Ownership, Active Honesty, and Thriving Together. Read more about them here.

    Benefits:

    Working at Respondent is a unique experience. You will be part of a remote, diversified team around the US. and world. We care deeply about creating a cohesive, tight-knit culture that gets results. That’s why we offer our employees the following:

    * Work remotely from anywhere in a US Time Zone (this does not have to be in the US itself, but rather must be in a US Time Zone: ex. Mexico City, Mexico)
    * A new office set up, including a new Macbook Pro, desk, second screen, ergonomic chair, and wireless mouse & keyboard
    * Health insurance for US-based employees covered at 99% for individuals and 50% for dependents (non-US employees receive a healthcare stipend)
    * Short Term Disability covered at 100% for all US-based employees
    * Dental and Vision insurance offered at group rates to lower the cost for US-based employees
    * Four weeks of flexible vacation (need a bit more for religious or country holidays--no problem!)
    * Paid holidays
    * Stock options
    * Company retreats for teammates to get to know one another in-person: our last retreat was in New Orleans!

    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

    SRE

    What You Will Do

    You will be a member of a six-person Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team responsible for maintaining and evolving the operational infrastructure for the Let’s Encrypt certificate authority. You will work closely with our application software developers and management to plan and implement the future of the certificate authority, its software applications, and its policies and procedures.

    We provide secure and reliable service to more than 150 million websites around the world. We expect this number to grow rapidly. As such it’s a unique opportunity to have an enormous impact on creating a more secure and privacy-respecting Web.

    In some organizations, the people responsible for deploying applications are left out of the full application development lifecycle. They are simply handed something at the end and told “make this run reliably, securely, and efficiently” while the infrastructure management role is devalued or taken for granted. That is not how we do things at Let’s Encrypt. SRE is part of the application development lifecycle from start to finish and we heavily invest in enabling and building infrastructure that is reliable, secure, and efficient. SRE is given latitude, time, and resources to do things The Right Way.

    Automation is central to everything you and your team will build and maintain. You will automate operations extensively for the sake of security, scalability, correctness, compliance, and financial efficiency. You will make sure that when something does need to be done manually, it can be done in a safe and efficient manner. Our focus on automation means we are particularly interested in candidates with software engineering skills.

    Our physical infrastructure includes servers, storage, switches, firewalls, and HSMs deployed across two highly secure data centers. While the majority of our infrastructure runs on our own hardware, we do use external cloud and CDN providers for some peripheral systems.

    We use open source software (e.g. Linux, Prometheus, Grafana, SaltStack) extensively and prefer it when it can get the job done. The core CA application software that your team will be responsible for deploying is open source and written by our software development team.

    Effective engineers know how to properly prioritize and communicate well. We will be looking for those skills in candidates.

    Requirements

    • Two years professional experience as a software developer
    • An understanding of why writing tests for software is critical
    • A willingness to travel approximately three times per year
    • A willingness to be on-call (time split between six people)
    • Personal organization ability so that people can depend on you (e.g. task lists, calendar management)

    Skills You Will Need to Develop

    We write most of our code in Go and Python. You don’t need to know these languages coming in but you will need to learn them.

    You will need to develop systems and network administration skills if you haven’t already. This means, for example, learning to manage firewalls and routers, work with automation tools like SaltStack, and manage virtual machines on both physical and cloud infrastructure.

    You will need to gain domain-specific knowledge (e.g. PKI) but you don’t need to know it coming in.

    Location and Benefits

    This is a remote position available anywhere in the United States or Canada.

    Benefits include excellent health insurance, a 100% match for 401k contributions, and flexible time off and parental leave policies.

  • 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). You would work on different clients contracts using the platform. The clients list/references include Harvard, MIT, edX themselves, the French government, and various startups & universities currently running their own instances, or looking to create one. 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. : )

  • Hundreds of thousands of businesses have bet their success on the reliability and performance of the Shopify platform. Uptime, resiliency and efficiency are critical to these businesses and as a result of Shopify’s rapid growth and massive scale, we have many interesting and challenging infrastructure problems to solve.

     

    At the heart of this platform are Shopify’s core database systems. These systems, where we store all merchant and customer data, are built around the MySQL ecosystem of open source tools. Over the past several years, we have been hard at work scaling and improving our database infrastructure, handling almost two million queries per second at peak. Now, we want to take it to the next level and we need your help to get us there!

     

    Responsibilities as a Database Engineer:

     

    As a member of Shopify’s Production Engineering organization and the Datastores team, you’ll be directly responsible for the scalability, availability, and integrity of the Shopify database infrastructure.

     

    As a Database Engineer, your day to day activities will include working closely with the support and development teams, some traditional database administration (DBA) work and some modern systems administration work (managing cloud infrastructure). As we continue to grow and scale, we need to achieve as much as possible through automation and hands-off management. We need your help, your experience, and your crazy ideas to design, build, and deploy the next generation of database management infrastructure to expand on what we have built to keep it truly world-class.

     

    We are currently running a cloud based state-of-the-art stack on Google’s Compute Engine and Container Engine. Our next challenges involve moving all our systems, including MySQL itself, as containerized services running under Kubernetes.

     

    All members of Production Engineering, including leads, also participate in an on-call rotation.

    You’ll need to:

    Have experience with the administration, operation, and performance tuning of MySQL, ideally in a Linux environment.

    Maintain an understanding of modern solutions to deploy services at scale.

    Be proficient in at least one programming language, and have the ability to read, write and understand scripts in languages such as Ruby, Python, or Go.

    Have an insatiable appetite to grow and learn how to manage systems at scale. It would be great if you:

    Understand modern high availability (HA) designs for MySQL, and have used MySQL HA-management solutions, such as Orchestrator.

    Have experience with MySQL proxies, such as ProxySQL.

    Understand containerization and deployment on Linux using technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes.

    Are up-to-speed and comfortable with cloud infrastructure, designs, and tools for Google Cloud and/or Amazon Web Services.

    Have some familiarity with existing cloud-managed “Database as a Service” solutions, such as  Google’s Cloud SQL or Amazon’s RDS/Aurora.

    Are competent using git for version control and especially using GitHub for pull requests, reviews, and issue management.

    Are familiar with the ecosystem of Open Source software used in production web environments, such as Rails, Redis and memcached.

     

    Some things you’ll be working on in your first few months:

    Learn about Shopify’s MySQL-based database infrastructure and get comfortable working safely and efficiently in it.

    Work on the projects that will allow us to offer to our internal customers a standardized “Database as a Service” platform which would cover absolutely all their needs, including HA, data integrity, schema migrations and changes, security, monitoring and alerts.

    Test (and try to break) our high availability systems in interesting new ways, and work out the kinks found in the process.

    Respond to internal support requests from other teams to help ensure their success in developing their own applications or supporting their customers.

     

    We know that applying to a new role takes a lot of work and we truly value your time. We are looking forward to reading your application. Please take some time to tell us why you’d be an awesome addition to our team and how this role would be a fit for you!

If you're also proficient in working with backend Node.js as well, that would be a bonus.

    You will need to be a creative problem solver, as much of the work requires creative approaches to unique technical challenges which often don't have much - if any - coverage on sites such as Stack Overflow.

    The complexity of the software is also a key component. Much of what we are building is concerned with complex data structures (including SVGs) as well as the inevitable complexities of scaling an app out into large organisations. As such, you will need to have a strong engineering mindset with the ability to think through problems in a structured way. Or to put it another way, you should be able to produce robust, tested code that will stand up in production.

    Responsibilities

    • Building robust frontend apps with the Vue.js framework, including unit tests
    • Creating custom single-file components for use in the interfaces
    • Developing applications for parsing and working with XML structures including SVG data

    • Optimising applications for maximum speed and scalability
    • Working with the team to solve complex challenges and contributing ideas and solutions regularly

    Skills and qualifications

    • Strong understanding of vanilla Javascript and latest ECMAscript standards
    • Basic understanding of web markup, including HTML5 and CSS3
    • Minimum 2 years experience of working with the Vue.js framework
    • Experience of working with state management systems, preferably Vuex
    • Experience of writing unit tests in tools such as Jest or Mocha (or component snapshots)
    • Familiarity with frontend build tools, particularly Webpack
    • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools including Git
    • Good understanding of browser rendering behavior and performance
    • Bachelors degree in computer science
    • Excellent communication skills

    Job Responsibilities:

    * Onboard new enterprise Crawlera customers.
    * Help the Sales team to price contract agreements for new & existing customers and proactively monitor Enterprise customers’ usage.
    * Respond to support escalations from enterprise customers.
    * Talk with enterprise customers to quickly understand both their objectives and their code; Help them fix underlying issues in their code and Tune & configure Crawlera to best suit each customers’ specific situation
    * Take proactive measures to measurably improve enterprise customers’ ability to successfully use Crawlera without your intervention. This will involve different things, but it will likely include:
    - improving client libraries, documentation, etc for Crawlera;
    - Providing extended functionality via other products in the Scrapinghub platform, or popular open source frameworks;
    - Liaise with other product teams within Scrapinghub to ensure Crawlera is well integrated in the ways that best serve enterprise customer.

    REQUIREMENTS

    Job Requirements:

    * Have excellent communication in both spoken and written English.
    * Have a strong knowledge of HTTP and Networking.
    * Are comfortable taking ownership in business critical situations; you enjoy being the “go-to” person.
    * Take a logical, measurement-backed approach to prioritizing projects, and enjoy working with others that do the same.
    * Are naturally dissatisfied with inefficiencies and having to do the same thing more than once; you see ways to fix the underlying cause rather than only reacting to what’s in front of you.
    * Have a broad general programming background; strong problem solver.

    Bonus points for:

    * Familiarity with techniques and tools for crawling, extracting and processing data, asynchronous communication and distributed systems.
    * Previous customer facing experience.
