Also sexism, religious bias, jingoism, and so on. Don't do it, people!

Dogs, don't do it either, even if the police man really tries to train you to do it.

Come join me in Higher-Ed at Norfolk State University in Norfolk, VA!

Senior Network Engineer

This position is more of an architect of our campus network. It is a very greenfield opportunity as we build the team out. Lots of places to add automation and make some new decisions for the next generation of our network! If you have any questions DM me!

http://virginiajobs.peopleadmin.com/postings/201753

Edit: Updates!

Why you should come work here:

  • Work with a goon (me!) and other goon adjacent folk!
  • I would be your supervisor, and that means that I expect you to actually take your vacation time and not work more than 40 hours a week.
  • State benefits are pretty good and Virginia is trying to be competitive on salary especially for technology jobs. This is a recent change, but they do a competitive salary study for positions.
    - https://www.dhrm.virginia.gov/employeebenefits
  • First job I ever had where I have left over vacation at the end of the year (and it rolls over).
  • The people who work here truly care about the institution, and care about doing it right.
  • The University is in a state of growth, and we have new, really great leadership.
    - That means, we are getting to greenfield a lot of new tech and processes.
  • This includes our CIO, who is awesome.

Hiring: Lead Systems Engineer (backfill for me) for a small company in the Washington DC area
Salary ~140-150k
GREAT company, decent team, middling customer but not bad.

Easily one of the best places I've worked (and I'm just transitioning to a new position).
Primarily Performance Monitor implementation focus; largely linux/unix. HUGE amount of support and career growth within the company available.

Currently fully remote, but looking for someone local.
PM me for full details; not sure if we have it posted since my position change isnt fully public in the company yet.

Hiring: Barcelona, Spain sports analytics startup.

Check our open positions. We still need to finish writing all the descriptions but the first two priorities are published so I thought I'd share already. I'll highlight those plus two more:
  • Backend Engineer (Kotlin/Spring)
  • Frontend Engineer (TypeScript/React)
  • Junior Backend Engineer (Python) [not posted yet]
  • UI/UX/Product Designer [no details yet]

We are currently remote but you must be willing to commute to Barcelona eventually, so ideally you're already in the EU. Work permits are hard to get otherwise.

The pay's not great, especially if you're used to markets outside Spain, but maybe you're interested in joining a small team (10 engineers) that's maybe at that second level of maturity and helping us reach the third. And if it's a draw for you, you could meet football stars and go to free matches, after COVID at least.

Probably we don't have many here in Spain and the markets in most other EU countries are better, but who knows. Let me know if you want to hear more.

Ninja edit: also open to feedback on my listings...

Job Posting: Senior IT Tech Specialist*

*however, this is effectively an intermediate/senior sysadmin role

Who we are: We are FreshBooks. We make invoicing and expense software for small businesses, and we're doing very very well in this economy.

Where we are: This posting is for our head office in Toronto, Ontario. While we would prefer it if you are in the Greater Toronto Area, we are willing to consider Canadian applicants who are fully remote. We have also about 4-500 people all over the world in Canada, the United States, the Netherlands, Croatia, and Mexico who you will be supporting.

Salary: ~90,000-100,000k CAD.

What you'll be doing:

Taking over my old job. You'll be managing Okta, configuring SSO/SAML/OAuth 2.0 applications, writing scripts, implementing automation, and maintaining a creaky Cisco networking environment and a tiny handful of on-prem linux and windows servers. We're a gsuite/GCP shop, with 90% Macs, 10% PCs, but we do want to start issuing linux laptops so experience as a linux admin would be nice. There's a bit of VOIP work also, but that's mostly fully managed.

Scripting experience is mandatory, cloud and linux experience a bonus. You need to understand networking fundamentals; network admin experience is nice but by no means required. Familiarity with infrastructure as code is also a plus.

Ultimately we're looking for self driven people, who can take on any ambiguous project and turn it into something real. Good social skills and effective project and process management are by far the most important qualities we look for.

At this time we are not looking for anyone who only has desktop support experience.

Why do you want to work here:
People get mad at you if you work overtime! I can literally count on one hand the amount of times I've worked past 5pm.

We have very generous benefits, with therapy, massages, dental, etc all covered. There's very little micromanaging, and generally we trust one another to get the job done. The salary is pretty decent as well. Lots of support for self-driven learning and development, with full reimbursement for basically any training or certs you want to do.

There's oncall but I've been paged maybe twice in the entire year, so basically it's an extra few weeks of vacation. You also get 3 weeks vacation to start, which goes 4 weeks after a few years. However, you also get 4 personal days per year, 3 volunteer days, 5 "innovation" days, 10 sick days and lieu days for oncall. All in all it adds up to at least 5-6 weeks vacation per year to start.

We're very progressive and very diverse. Super flexible on remote work, you can come in if you want, but I haven't seen the inside of the office since Covid and nobody's said a word.

We make everyone, including Execs, work for 2-4 weeks in our customer support department doing onboarding, learning our product, and helping customers. You'll only be doing two weeks.

Why you don't want to work here:
The title sucks. The official title is "Senior IT Tech Specialist", but you'll basically be acting as a senior sysadmin. Just put sysadmin on your resume and linkedIn and move on, that's what I've done for the past year. The director can be a little grandiose when it comes to who he thinks the company can influence, and is a complete stick in the mud about the title, but he's a genuinely nice and smart guy and very supportive otherwise.

We make everyone, including Execs, work for 2-4 weeks in our customer support department doing onboarding, learning our product, and helping customers. You'll only be doing two weeks.

How to apply:
The posting is here: https://boards.greenhouse.io/freshbooks/jobs/2423517, but if you PM me I can refer you, which guarantees you an interview and gets me a referral bonus. You can also reach me at ironrosesa@gmail.com.

Besides the positions I posted above, my company is also considering outsourcing the development of one of our products (a SPA). I would anticipate 3-4 FTE for 4-6 months. We already have elaborate designs in invision.

Anyone have a shop or part of a team of freelancers who we should consider? One thing to note is we're in Spain so we cannot compete with Silicon Valley prices.

For maximum reusability and integration, the ideal stack would be React/Spring Boot/Mongo, but I'm happy to discuss details and the pros and cons of going in a different direction based on the specific points of integration.

Swap out Mongo for [NO-SQL DB my company makes] and you can have not just one, but two goons building your product!

Final Reminder! Posting closes on Nov. 29!


Job Posting: Senior Network Engineer (Architect)
This is really going to be the position that will determine the design of the next generation network on campus and beyond!

Who we are: We are Norfolk State Univeristy. A Public University in Norfolk, Virginia. (An HBCU)

Where we are: Norfolk, VA

Salary: Based on Experience ( I canít publicly note numbers etc, but is going to be as market competitive as we can make it)

What you'll be doing:
Architecting the next generation wired and wireless network backbone and internet connectivity for the University. This includes surveying our current network, finding its faults and designing new solutions. You'll also be assisting us in filing the networking team's bench with another engineer and physical networking tech (cable tech). There will be some troubleshooting of current issues and exigent problems.

Youíll be joining Technical Services, a division in the Office of Information Technology. I am the Interim Director who oversees three main groups:

Infrastructure: Applications (Windows and Linux) / Hosting (VMware / Storage) / Datacenter
Networking: Controlling the core all the way to the physical jack, and external networking to the internet and other institutions.
Telecommunications: Phone systems and other communication platforms.

Why do you want to work here:
We have generous state benefits including retirement + other investment avenues, and full healthcare plans: https://www.dhrm.virginia.gov/employeebenefits

You will have a green field to build new. We are in a state of expansion in the IT department and the University really understands that a strong IT department will enable the kinds of learning and research scenarios that they want to pursue. Itís a pretty exciting time.

You wonít be working late. This is a state job, and salaried and we are all basically on call all the time, but I can count on my one hand the times this year I have had to work late or do something on the weekend. I have been here 4 and 1/2 years and I have no thoughts about leaving. Its a nice place where people genuinely appreciate the work we do.

You will be working with a great team of individuals who will support each other to get the job done.


Why you don't want to work here:
Itís still a job. Which means not everyone will like everything we do, especially when we start applying the brakes to a project because no one talked to us first and we donít have enough ports, or bandwidth or the laws of physics ensure it canít work that way.

It is working at a University. Politics sometimes get in the way and people with big egos and all that. But, with the reporting structure, we generally donít get much push back from a lot of things we are doing (because we already cleared it!)

The budgets depend on enrollment and state funding. Which can shift based on lots of things. But so far, we have been relatively unscathed during this whole pandemic thing.


How to apply:

Please fill this out throughly if you want to apply. The more checks we can give the resume / application, the easier it is to do interviews after we review the batch
