I wear my sunglasses at night.

I know that people post job openings on here from time to time, but they are pretty rare and not always in your part of the world. Wouldn't it be nice if you could just say "Hey, I'm looking for a job in Dallas, anybody have any leads?" and have the jobs come to you, instead? I agree!

So yeah, that's pretty much the gist of this thread. Call it Goon Networking, I don't know. It's no substitute for the old fashioned job search sites, but since it seems so many jobs are more about who you know, it can't hurt to just ask and see if anybody has any contacts you can use! Right?

Current Openings
For up-to-date listings, check the SH/SC Job Fair Speadsheet

Edit: I've removed the old previous listings, which haven't been touched in probably a year or more. Stick with the goon-maintained spreadsheet or the newer posts in the thread for updates.

What the gently caress, why not. My post-graduation job search thus far has been pretty dismal.

My Experience: About a decade of small/mid-scale web app development (PHP, MySQL, etc), Website / UI design/development (Raw HTML/CSS), and Linux server configuration & administration (Apache, Exim, MySQL, backup, security, etc). I also have a decent amount of experience tearing apart diverse open source LAMP stuff, squishing it together, and making it do my bidding as one cohesive whole. (Oh, and I've got one of those lovely 'degree' things from the USF CSE department, which finally got here in the mail today! Only took them two months to get around to sending it out.)
What I'm Looking For: Stuff like that ^, but with an actual team. I'm sort of tired of doing all the dev crap on my own, and also being the office staff, and also being customer service, and also being on-site tech support, and also being [everything else].
What I'm NOT Looking For: Asp.NET Development (and not for blind zealotry reasons, I did a lot of C#/ASP.NET stuff my last semester of college, and while I was competent I hated it), Helpdesk gruntwork, etc.
Where I Live: Tampa, FL
Where I'm Looking: Central FL, preferably gulf coast.
When I Can Start: When do you want me?
Requirements: Full Time Only. I really don't want to be a contractor. Not having to pay for my own health insurance would be neat. It would also be great if your company is not some sleazy internet marketing outfit.
Can Be Reached Via: e-mail redacted, PM's, this thread, whatever.


Additionally, anyone have general tips on finding tech employment? I've got my resume out on the major job boards, and have had indeed.com spitting relevant job postings at my e-mail for the past two months (and have been applying for most anything I'm qualified for), but thus far I've only actually heard from three headhunters, and only one of them has been able to get me an interview (for a job I'm probably going to turn down). Good thing I've got my lovely computer janitor job to keep me sorta busy, or I'd be going completely nuts.

Update: Quit my CJ job, got a job offer later that afternoon. Not from this thread, but it's still work. I start Monday. Hooray, employment!

I think the government should socialize cell phones.They'd have a matrix of your income, social position, and job type, and then assign you a cell phone that is appropriate.


I'm not an HR guy for my employer, but in a couple months we'll be looking to hire a low to medium end Windows support guy, experience with Windows Server 2k3 and minor Linux knowledge would be a good place to start.

Also, you need to be organized and able to interface with customers and have some ability in project planning. Basically, you're going to live at one clients office and take care of them so I can do other, more important tasks.

We're in midtown Manhattan. We won't be looking until around April, though.

The benefits include getting to work with me.

Certainly I was sufficiently insecure to have felt the need to establish to my own satisfaction before the age of 33 whether or not humans can fly. If that makes me a chippy little autodidact in your eyes then so be it.

My experience: 16 years in IT related fields including 8 years web application programming/design, 6 years SMB IT support.
What I'm looking for: A job on a tropical island, preferably the Caribbean, with no visa hassles.
What I'm NOT looking for: A job in the United States
Where I live: Florida
When I can start: A month or two.
Requirements: Enough money to live well and travel occasionally

I only took my current job because I had been working there during school and felt I had the best job given the market and my lack of interest in finance. Therefore, anything that is remotely interesting would be welcomed.

What I'm not looking for: I do not like to travel often. I can deal with a trip or two every year, but am not looking to do any more than that.

Hey! We've got three two IT job openings in my group!

Who we are: Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, a leading research institution in the fields of bioinformatics, neuroscience, cancer research and other areas of life sciences.
Where we are: Cold Spring Harbor, NY, on the north shore of Long Island just on the border between Nassau and Suffolk Counties.

---

Job title: Systems Engineer III (Linux/Solaris/HPC)
What we want: Generic senior-type Linux sysadmin with a wide variety of software experiences; cluster experience preferred, but not necessary. Software includes Samba, LAMP stuff, FTP servers, Puppet, and a bunch of scientific/informatics software (BLAST, Blat, Velvet, Matlab, Solexa pipelines, etc.) that you'll be installing a lot more than you'll be interacting with it. Strong system automation skills with good scripting ability are a must; experience with configuration management tools like Puppet or Cfengine wouldn't hurt (we're running Puppet). Experience working in a highly-heterogeneous Windows/Mac/Linux/Solaris environment is a must. You should be extremely comfortable with installing software from source and Perl modules from CPAN.


Job title: Systems Engineer III (Windows/Exchange)
What we want: We're about to move our Exchange servers to a clustered, highly-available architecture backed by SAN storage, and we'd like someone with SAN experience to come in and help us get it right. You'll be doing minimal administration on some email appliances, which we haven't decided on yet. Experience with archiving and compliance is preferred, and specific experience with Symantec Enterprise Vault is awesome. When Exchange hasn't got you down, you'll be helping out our senior Windows guy with some stuff on the Windows end (AD, SQL, etc.).


Job title: Storage Engineer III (SAN/Backup)
What we want: Someone with extensive SAN experience to come in and help manage our storage, which includes an IBM SAN, BlueArc NAS and numerous Sun systems (Thumper/Thor and Amber Road). Must be proficient at profiling, testing and tuning storage hardware, as some of it will be used in an HPC environment with 500+ nodes hammering it at once. Experience with IBM Tivoli Storage Manager preferred, but should have some experience with managing backups in an enterprise environment. The more you know about clustering and high-availability at the OS level (Windows, Linux, Solaris, ESX) the better, but it's not a strict requirement.


---

Virtualization experience is helpful for all three of these jobs, though it's being used far more extensively on the Linux end.

Why you'd want to work here: We're situated on a beautiful campus on the north shore of Long Island right along the water. Extensive on-campus dining facilities (there's a bar across from our offices) and a gym. Education is a really cool place to be; the environment is pretty low-pressure compared to most environments of this size. We're right in the middle of transitioning from a Mickey Mouse IT environment to something truly enterprise-grade. Finally, if you're a food nerd, we're 10 minutes from anything you could possibly want in Huntington Village or Syosset.

Our group in the IT department is small and tight-knit, and we're all really smart people. We don't hack together solutions to problems. Most importantly, you get to play with a lot of different things here, so it's not like you're pigeonholed to a job responsibility like "my job is to QA patches for our CentOS 5 systems." I got more resume fodder in 6 months working here than 5 years at my last job.

If you live in NYC, you can get out here by train. There's a lot of commuters from the city, and the lab runs a shuttle from the Syosset train station to both of our campuses.

Why you wouldn't want to work here: Education is kind of funny. Our institution is made up of around 50 smaller labs, each with their own research goals, their own agendas, and their own technical requirements. This results in some things that are, to be blunt, a lot more heterogeneous than they should be. A good part of your job will be convincing scientists to do things IT's way.

Salary: We're a non-profit, so don't expect us to match Wall Street, but you'll have no trouble living on it. I can't really say anything about numbers, so talk to our HR department. I'd take the bullshit route out and say that it's "based on experience" but all of these positions are rather senior anyway.

PM me for more details on any of these positions.

My experience: 3.5 years as Windows systems administrator for a ~110 person company spread across two offices. AD/Exchange administration, BES, corporate AV, Group Policy, yadda yadda yadda.

What I'm NOT looking for: Entry level help desk, datacenter positions
Where I live: Long Island

Just to reiterate my post, I had a project meeting with my bosses yesterday, and they told me that they're going to look at hiring someone around April for me to train and hand off my job to so I can go back to focusing on telephony.

The biggest caveat, is that the person must have experience supporting financial companies (brokerage firms, or hedge funds). If someone fits that, and is interested in a job in NYC at a small, but quickly growing company, let me know. I can pass you along to our management and you guys can talk.

If you haven't supported them, then it's hard to explain.

But imagine, you're a circus performer, and whlie walking a tightrope, you have to juggle running chainsaws. However, these chainsaws are also on fire, shoot laserbeam, and are electrified. You are also wearing a suit made out of bees.

Seriously, though, it's different than just keeping a network up and running. You have to maintain 100% uptime, at all times. Any outage can costs the traders hundreds of thousands of dollars. Any packet-loss is unacceptable, because Bloomberg, TT, Redi, and the other apps they use will freak out with just a couple missing packets.

It's pretty stressful, but you're also not constrained by the limits of a budget, they understand they need you, so they give you the freedom you need to install what you want. It has it's pros and cons, like everything else.

The reason it's required if you want a job supporting them is that if you don't understand the terminology they use, and the way they and markets work, it's very hard for you to manage applications that they need.

A lot of the people I went to undergrad with went this route straight out of school (I've got friends at Bloomberg) or the ERP consulting route (Accenture) and we've often talked about what we do day to day. They made a lot more money than I did taking my general sys admin job at a small company but now, a few years later, I've got a really broad set of skills and they're focused on one or two specific support tasks. Yeah, they still make more money (they also work in NYC and I work on LI right now) but I'm happy with the route I chose.

Not that there's anything wrong with it, of course. But like Jerk McJerkface said, it takes a certain kind of person and experience to work with finance people.

Hey, no OP love for my job posting?

Let me follow your template and try again:

--First off, let me say that I'm not in charge of hiring/interviewing at all, but I know that we're looking for someone in a couple months, so I'm trying to be proactive, because the person we hire will basically be assisting me for a few months, and the sooner we get people lined up, the better.

What we're looking for: Low to mid-level computer tech with experience in networking, Windows Server 2k3, basic Linux knowledge, and VOIP experience a plus. Experience with financial support required. The person must be organized, able to do some basic project planning, and deal with clients directly. Applicant needs to be able to quickly learn and figure out new technologies.

What we're not looking for: Disorganized people that aren't interested in learning and simply want a help-desk job with no desire to do anything.

Location: Midtown NYC

Approximate opening date: April/May 2009

Benefits: Health (HSA with company contribution), Dental, getting to work with me.

Notes: We're a small company, but have been growing considerably in the past year. We have a small core of techs, but we're all basically super-geniuses. Our sales team sells products and solutions that we have never heard of all the time and we just have to figure it out and make it work.

Contact: email me at ericcorp AT gmail.com DOT com and I'll get you to our people.

EDIT: add contact info

EDIT2:

I've already gotten a few emails about my companies job posting!

Just to add some more information for everyone:

1) We're not interested in remote agents. Unless you have lots of VOIP or Asterisk experience, we wouldn't really have any use for a remote agent for our financial clients. Sorry

2) We're really interested in someone with Adtran experience. it's not a requirement, but you have to know something about networking.

Build, test and modify prototype application software based on detailed instructions; Install and maintain software systems; Support senior staff in the creation and maintenance of application software within Lotus Notes, Microsoft Access and web-based architectures, etc.; Assist in the preparation of technical and user documentation, as well as in the production of training materials; Maintain regular contact with users and technical staff in user offices and provide support as required; Conduct research on new technologies as requested

Kind of looks like a combination Q&A/Help Desk with what could potentially be a significant amount of programming involved. Also, you get to tell people, "I work for the U.N."

Hey, no OP love for my job posting?
I was going to add yours, but your first post said your company wasn't looking yet, so I skipped it. Mistake corrected.
