Okay, time to do a public post finally.
Last week Forem/DEV did a rather huge round of layoffs. My role was impacted, though in a way that means I am still employed for a short while there. I'm grateful for that and for my time there.
Right now I'd like to prioritize contract and/or part-time (or maybe 4-day full-time) roles in systems, infra, devxp, and web backends. Open-source preferred.
Boosts appreciated! 🧵
Obligated periodic reminder
that I am currently Looking for Work! ✨
Remotely from Canada 🇨🇦
(ideally, but flexible)
At a great organization 💚
(this matters more to me than the position)
Check this post for more details: https://infosec.exchange/@Em0nM4stodon/111054547728861638
I just had my first face-to-face interview. It didn't go that great.
The position as outlined is of a principal-level database engineer.
What they really want is a database admin.
If you live in Los Angeles, and if you have DB Admin skills, this job seems good: https://boards.greenhouse.io/spotter/jobs/4242119005
But it is not for me. I have ADHD, and having to do lots of repetitive stuff makes me twitch.
Honestly critiquing your own resume is very difficult, and I don't think paid services are much better. As a manager who has seen plenty of bad resumes lately, if you aren't having much luck, ask some colleagues you would like to work with for a brutally honest review of your resume. Many resumes are pretty bad, actually, and many good applicants don't realize this.
I guess it can't hurt to put a post here. I'm looking for a job, ideally something related to software development or system administration because that's what I have specialized knowledge in, although I'm fine with anything that has decent pay, really. I'd prefer a remote job but could relocate to a location in the US if necessary.
My work experience consists entirely of around a year at various fast food places, and I have no higher education.
I have experience with Linux, including managing/configuring desktop workstations, using UNIX-like development tools and build systems, and system administration. In terms of system administration, I host a personal server running Debian that includes an Apache webserver with a personal website, as well as various other miscellaneous services.
I have general knowledge of cloud-based technologies, including Docker and Kubernetes, although I of course don't any real-world experience to show for that.
I’m once again looking for freelance copyediting, sensitivity reading or writing work this month! Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re looking to hire someone for:
* Up to 15,000 words of copyediting, or
* Up to ~80,000 words of sensitivity reading (from a transmasculine, nonbinary, disabled, autistic, bisexual, and/or polyamorous perspective), or
* Up to 8000 words of content writing (game content writing, or non-fiction topics including video games, TTRPGs, sci-fi and fantasy, health, psychology, and relationships)
You can find client testimonials and more information about my work at www.rowanpierce.uk.
Boosts very much appreciated!
Kia ora Fediverse, I’m #OpenToWork! 👋
I am a Product Designer (UX/UI) with over 3 years of expertise crafting user-centric experiences ranging from native mobile app interfaces, to web-based dashboards.
I live in Aotearoa New Zealand and prefer remote, but I’m open to on-site opportunities in Te Whanganui-a-Tara 💨.
If you or someone you know is looking for a designer, I’d love to chat! (Links in bio)
Mā te wā! 💚
(PS: I’m available to start ASAP!)
Apologies for the crass link to LinkedIn, but I must admit I'm rather pleased with my First Post in 3 years. 🤓
Freshening up my profile there and figured I’d have some fun with it.
(and FYI, I have an opening for freelance work in #WebDev — hit me up if you're ready to migrate to a fresh design system using vanilla CSS & web components and bid Tailwind and/or React farewell…or just need some #Ruby programming. That works too!)
Tiny Mastodon Tip for Job Seekers 💼 :mastodon: :
If you too are looking for work
on the Fediverse, here are a few tips that might help:
1. Follow the account @hiringbot which does an amazing job at automatically boosting relevant toots (posts)! 👍
2. Build a List of companies and organizations that are here and where you would like to work at 🗒️
Here's how to build Lists on Mastodon: https://infosec.exchange/@Em0nM4stodon/109265634017886918
4. Include the location you want to work from to your toots related to job search 🌍🌏🌎
5. Follow *at least* the hashtag #Hiring 👈
6. If you are looking for developer jobs, follow: @jobsfordevelopers
7. If you are looking for jobs with open source projects, follow: @fossjobs
8. Good luck! ✨
I'm a 10+ year industry experienced computer wrangler, something like 25+ year programming experience, with degrees. Lots of generalist experience, but mostly in the sphere of "cloud services running on Linux". Which, you know, is a lot of the web!
I'd like full time work.
But, I'd take interesting short term consulting work, e.g., advising for starting up cloud work or doing digital transformation.
Happy to get on a 15m call to talk!
If you are writing a job-search toot it would be great if you could add the country you are in. Yes, it also matters for fully remote positions.
I spend so much time trying to piece together various clues about job searchers locations in their profile. 🥲
That would be awesome, thank you, and good luck! 🙌
The #sfbayarea Department of Emergency Management has a temporary position for a data center engineer.
#sfba #sf #fedihired
Good Monday morning, Fediverse! I'm looking for my next role, hoping to get #FediHired.
Right now I'm a principal engineer and team lead for certificate infrastructure at a major US company. My day-to-day work focuses on PKI infrastructure/operations, Windows, and Active Directory. I get to help developers understand both the Why and How of the best practices for using certificates, along with keeping the certificate infrastructure humming along.
Working with Information Security, we've implemented company-wide multi-factor authentication for ~30,000 people. I've designed and executed migrating from on-prem PKI (Microsoft ADCS) to Certificates-As-A-Service, which reduced our total operating costs by about half. The includes dropping our datacenter footprint from multiple physical devices down to a couple of VMs.
Outside of the technical responsibilities, I'm mentoring and training junior/new teammates to build their skills and their confidence. Feedback from the management of our development and applications teams is that I've reinvigorated relationships and made certificate discussions something folks look forward to. And while nobody enjoys an outage, both managers and fellow individual contributors have told me that my calm, confident, and methodical presence is critical to both morale and quick resolution.
My current position doesn't offer much in the way of Azure exposure, but in my previous role I built out a Windows Virtual Desktop (now Azure Virtual Desktop, AVD) ecosystem from scratch when the pandemic first began and we had to send everyone to work from home on super-short notice. Nobody missed a day of work for lack of technical resources.
What I want from my next role is either a similar technical lead/principal level infrastructure/operations IC position or moving into management of a similar team.
If you're looking for a technical leader (with or without management responsibilities) to help shape and maintain your Windows/Active Directory environment, someone who can build relationships across a large organization, let's chat. DM me for email or Signal.
Current residence is in Syracuse, NY, but I'm open to relocation.
I am in the job market for a remote red team or offensive security engineer role. I am seasoned full-stack software developer, a OSCP-certified pentester (currently working on CRTO), and system administrator with plenty of cloud experience.
Before my current role leading the IT & Cybersecurity team at NNAF, I did security research (including developing an improved reflective DLL injection technique  that helped inspire the widely used sRDI project  and has been cited by academics and other security researchers ) and performed pentesting and appsec for a variety of clients from global hedge funds to healthcare to aerospace engineering. Prior to that I did low-level embedded firmware development and experimental research for a wireless mesh networking platform.
For the last year I have been building an advanced, fully-featured red teaming/adversary simulation platform (which I am happy to demo for potential employers), including a web-based multi-user team server, scriptable API, a cross-platform flagship agent with novel evasion techniques, a variety of cross-platform payloads and stagers, relaying and pivoting, and an easily-extensible set of C2 protocols, both synchronized and asynchronous.
I am an excellent verbal and written communicator, comfortable translating highly technical topics for a variety of audiences from executives to engineers, and have consistently produced high quality reports for clients. I have experience programming in almost a dozen languages and am quick to learn new technologies.

Oh, and on the topic of #fediHired since I've been getting some boosts and new followers recently for unrelated posts, it's worth repeating, I'm looking for my next career step.
TL;DR ideally I'd like to find a full time, full remote (hybrid in CA bay area ok), Senior Security Architect role, or similar.
Last position was Senior Security Engineer. I've got my #CISSP and a broad development background and ops history.
DM me if you think something would be a good fit. Thanks
While I'm still looking to get #fediHired I have seen an awful lot (both in quantity and quality) of LinkedIn recruiter spam, that appears to be AI-assist driven, or at least strongly templated. Let me try:
"Hi $NAME. I hope [this message finds you well | you had a great weekend] I was really impressed with your profile and experience with $THING and think you'd be a great fit. Please schedule 15 minutes with me to discuss this great opportunity!" (No details provided)
How did I do?
I work with React, Django, Node, Postgres, Mongo, and tools like Mapbox and Leaflet.

I have a BS in software engineering already and will have a MS in computer engineering by the time I've graduated

Also if you know of any remote jobs available that don't mind somebody based in France (I also have the legal right to work in Canada and the UK)
My experience is in running customer service teams in call centres and startups (internal / external) and happy to do a frontline agent job as well.
