Ruby - Python - Java Developer

Chicago, IL & Palo Alto, CA


Of course you need to have the essential coding skills to do the job, but part of life in the cloud (Infrastructure as a Service in case you were wondering) is a never ending stream of new knowledge, APIs, endpoints, engines and automations. If you like doing the same thing over and over again, this is not for you.

If you devour new knowledge, if your approach to problem solving is highly elastic, this might be it.


Helping grow (define, design, code) our VNS3 product family: VNS3:turret, VNS3:net, VNS3:vpn, product add-ons, as well as as yet unnamed future products.



  • Multiple years of paid professional Ruby, Python and/or Java experience on infrastructure systems.
  • Experience working with Erlang, Clojure, Objective-C and/or want to use Ruby or Python.
  • Linux or Windows based, multi-tier, multi-server application architectures.
  • Version control skills; Git preferred.

Significant preference for candidates with:

  • Experience¬†building event-oriented, asynchronous architectures.
  • Supplemental work on open source projects.
  • Internet visible technical blog or open source project participation.
  • Degree in Computer Science – but willing to talk to experienced “wildcards” who can deliver despite the lack of academic credentials.

A few musts for us:

  • Professional demeanor,
  • Strong communication skills and team work,
  • Elasticity, as in a willingness to take ownership and be proactive.
  • US Citizen or Green Card Holder
