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.

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.

Well, at my company you'll get experience in everything.

Here's what I work with on a day to day basis (at just the one client we're looking for someone to assist me):

Windows Domain (with multiple servers)
RADIUS Server
Asterisk PBX
Adtran core couters
Sonicwall firewalls
HP Blade servers
Multiple vendor leaselines (we're up to five now)
Four locations for DR/redudancy
Source based routing
Video conferencing
Multiple trading aps (Bloomberg, Calyon, TT, etc)

Now, I'm not good at all these things, but from two years ago when I was making 12 bucks an hour repairing WW2 era gyroscopes to managing this beast of a network, I think I'm diversified quite a bit.

Ohhh Fun.

I've got an interesting position I'm looking to fill.

Who we are: Freeverse, INC. One of the top iPhone Game Developers
Where we are: New York City (Brooklyn) and the rest of the world

---

Job title: Contract Programer for odds and ends

What we want: We are at the top of the iPhone dev market right now. We get thrown a lot of contract work that we sadly have to turn down due to our programers being maxed out. We are looking for a person or team who we can send contract work to. We've had to turn down a lot of high profile work on Movie properties, large high profile apps and such. Finding a person or a team in NYC would be great, but it's not necessary. We have people who work with us all over the world. You have to be extremely self motivated and able to think on your own. We move extremely fast and need someone who can take initiative. You must know Obj-C, C++ and OpenGL. You must be available to work standard work hours (so anyone looking to pick up stuff on the weekends need not apply).

This is not a permanent gig, it's would be paid per job. But we have no shortage of work for 2009. You must be able to supply me with a working application and source code for evaluation. You must have an Intel Mac with OS X 10.5 and must use Xcode. No Unity apps allowed.

Pay is based on complexity of the application and the speed it can get done. But we pay very well. Recent/Upcoming College grads are more than welcome to apply.

My Experience: BSc in Internet Computing from UK University. Plenty of experience with Windows and Linux, programming in C, perl, PHP, shell scripting... basic HTML/CSS stuff (not a designer by any means), reverse engineering / hacking / security stuff, basic networking (firewalls, routing, VLANs, etc), system administration and lots of other random poo poo.

What I'm looking for: Something that involves the above, most likely system/network admin or something in the security field.

What I'm NOT looking for: Short-term, contract work, low-paid hourly stuff, CJ positions. Anything that involves a lot of travel.

Where I'm looking: Anywhere in the US and Canada. Will requires H1-B for US work since I'm British (yeah that's usually a deal-killer )

When I can start: Within a month or so.

Just so happens the IT department I work in has a couple of openings in the UK right now.

Who are we? We're a medium sized Media company based in the UK and USA

Where are we? We have offices in SF and NY in USA. In the UK our offices are in London and our HQ is towards the western end of the M4 corridor in England. These openings are at the UK HQ site.

What are we looking for?

1 - Helpdesk "analyst". What can I say? I'll be honest - this is your basic entry level helpdesk role, taking calls and helping users. Being a media company we're heavy with both Macs and PCs with lots of different and interesting things going on. Experience with modern Macs is a definite plus point.

2 - Perl Developer. This is working moderate level on internal corporate systems, building and maintaining a variety of applications originated in-house. There's probably scope for working on internet-facing apps too, but this isn't my team so I'm not certain. This is working on primarily Unix and Linux systems, with Perl and SQL (Oracle). There's likely to be a smattering of Java too, and possibly other languages. Pay starts at £30k.

Why work for us? So far we're pretty stable even troubled times. There are company pension and healthcare plans if you want to sign up to them. Holiday allocation is pretty generous and doesn't include public holidays in the count, so you get even more. We have a strong history of supporting people who want to move up inside the company - there are several people with the word "director" in their job title who started off on the bottom rung - and even in IT there's scope to do that.

Sounds awesome, I want to apply for one! OK, email awful dot nene at googlemail dot com. I'll send you some more details, and we'll see what happens. You can post here to discuss too, but I'm not going to be putting any info that directly identifies me or the company in public.

Might as well toss another UK job opening in!

Who are we?
We're Codestuff LTD, a small, young IP Video software company (CCTV/Security focused). We develop everything on the software side of IP video, ranging from viewing applications to transcoders and video analytics. We do custom work for some of the big players on the market, and are right now rolling out our own suite of solutions for direct sale.

Where are we?
Our office is in the central belt of Scotland, midway between Glasgow and Edinburgh.

What are we looking for?
Right now we're looking for software engineers with experience in anything Object-Oriented. We work in C#/.NET and C++, and our software base is heavily OO. It doesn't really matter if you've any experience in C# (or c++, for that matter) as long as you're able to pick it up on the fly and actually have a good grasp of the underlying concepts. Experience with Video is a big plus, as is experience with building GUIs and/or network stuff.

We've got more work coming in than we've engineers to actually do it, so you are quite free to choose an area that interests you to specialize towards, or stay/become an all-rounder. If you expect strict guidance and rigorous job-description, we're probably not for you.

In the coming months we'll need people for customer support and dedicated testing engineers, but not yet - if this thread's still going by then I'll certainly post an update.

Why work for us?
We're a nice small start-up company, heavily skewed towards actual development (3/4 of the employees (and two of the directors) are developers, there's an actual productive relationship with the sales people). Hours are flexible, and so is your role - typical start-up fare, essentially. The good thing is that we're a few years old (more than five now), are actually pretty stable income-wise, and are set to grow rapidly over the coming year.

Back in August I moved from The Netherlands to Scotland to come work here, so I might be a bit biased, but if you like working for small companies this is basically heaven - freedom to do anything, really innovative products (we won numerous awards for them) and a great team and atmosphere (plus good lunches and boozy nights out), but there's actual money coming in and we're wholy emplyee-owned (no VC sress, yay).

Sounds awesome, I want to apply!
PM me or post in this thread. I'll add some more detail if you want, or send you some samples of what we're working on.

I don't really have any details since I'm nothing to do with them, but it looks like your bog-standard Linux admin role plus a bit of Windows AD and exchange. They say the salary is up to £25k depending on experience.

Who we are: Gallup
Where we are: All over the world, but only hiring right now in Madison, WI
Job title: Technical Project Manager

Go to the site for more information. There is a hiring freeze right now so no more Java or Oracle devs will be hired. Those positions may also be available at Omaha, NE.

Requirements: Relocation. See site for job requirements, though.

Benefits: Can't complain. Health, dental, 401k, ability to purchase stock, access to the company's Credit Union with supposedly great interest rates, life insurance, etc. Only thing different than other companies is that there is no sick time or vacation time. You just take off when you need to as long as your team is OK with it. If you're sick, you're sick. They understand.

They also use that performance based salary deal where you can ask for $100K, get paid $80K if you're under performance, get $100K if you meet your goals, and get $120K if you exceed it by a certain amount.

Also: Gallup is known for HR type work -- doing interviewing for other companies by putting candidates through their own rigorous processes, etc. It's exhausting getting in (luckily I was grandfathered via a company merger), but completely worth it.


edit: this is old and I don't work there anymore. Sorry for getting your hopes up, midwest goons. A new post from me might be in the near future about work at a datacenter.

Better news; I know this isn't exactly SH/SC fair, but I did notice a possible opening for a flash developer in the UK at our HQ site. I'm afraid I don't have any details on this at all though, since it's in a completely different department.

Only two offices in Texas and they're both in and just outside Houston, from what I recall. Only one of them has any tech staff at all. A ton of offices have no tech staff and are completely remote; you'd only visit them on a very rare basis. This mainly applies to the ones outside the USA, though.

Don't contact me about jobs though, I don't mind providing more info about the company etc if you do contact me. Go here for jobs in the US, here for Europe, here for Asia and here for Codian UK positions.

The R&D positions in Norway are quite sought after and the place has a reputation for looking after its staff very well.
