Boston Job Market

 

Exciting new search for 3 new Software Engineers:

Strong, public company in Lexington, MA area

C++ Proxy/Networking/Tunnel/Linux/OpenSource – ActiveSync/Jetty/Nginx Software Engineers

All very similar roles, just different levels of expertise. Two of the hires would be Principal+ (Tech Lead types who can take design, mentor juniors, and play a leadership role). Still must be very hands-on and bang out code.

This particular group within our client operates like a startup – aggressive, high-end environment.

Salaries will range from 115-140k for the Principal + 10% bonus, senior 85k to 103k + 5 % bonus ( bonus pays out every year)

Creating a new product – a proxy server that will sit in the DMZ of a client. All Linux, Open Source, building functionality on top of that. Will funnel to internal servers.

Proxy is written in C/C++ – the core (EngineX, similar with Apache).

Strong experience with proxy servers like Jetty or Nginx – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nginx

would be nice.

Java is a nice plus.

Most of the initial work is in C++, some of the new features will be in Java

1 Principal with ActiveSync expertise
1 Principal with strong Sockets, VPN tunneling/sockets/encryption/proxy background
1 Senior + generalist
• Experience with C/C++ is required
• Experience with Java, Linux development, Web services, and socket APIs is a plus
• Experience with Microsoft’s ActiveSync protocol, network protocols, or Proxies is a plus
Sound interesting?

Working on some fun new software engineer jobs, exclusively with a client in the Woburn, MA area:

Our client, a well-known, public company in Woburn, MA, with a small development group in MA (15 engineers) has exclusively engaged me to add 5 new engineers to their team.
This is the best of both worlds – great benefits and investment in the tools/technologies you need + bleeding edge “cool” stuff – CLOUD and VIRTUALIZATION and NETWORKING!

We have three groups we are recruiting for:

Web Development – these are folks with OO web skills – Ruby/Rails/RoR/PHP/Python/Perl – any/all mix is fine

Core engine/software engineers – complex, threaded C++ work — should have a heavy duty CS background. More Senior/Principal software engineer.

SQA – manual and automation, with more emphasis on automation. Work in a wireless, networking or cloud software company is a huge bonus.

 

 

So, did you miss me? It was definitely hard to take a break from the hottest job market for software engineers in Boston, MA since 1999… but the confluence of time and opportunity was just too hard to resist.

Among the great memories – hiking the Great Wall of China, sailing in Halong Bag, Vietnam, Cooking with Poo in Thailand, seeing Angkor Wat in Cambodia, visiting 1200 year old Temples in Japan, and eating some of the strangest, but most delicious food I’ve ever seen (including several Michelin award winners!)

So, jet lag in the rearview mirror, I focus my attention on the oodles of clients that need my attention…. and the phone/email never stopped being answered even when +13 hours away.

Looking forward to talking to super software engineers in the Boston area – Ruby/Rails, C#/.NET and Java/J2EE are all still in heavy demand …

Happy New Year! It sure was a whirlwind holiday season – between hosting visitors, charitable activities, and the social scene I’m actually quite excited to be back into 100% recruiting mode.

Often, I hear from old and new clients asking about insight about the market, trends and prognosis for the future. So, here’s a few thoughts to start the new year off:

1. Web skills are hot – a) C#/.NET b) Java/J2EE  and c)Python/Rails/Perl/Open source are about 95% of the position tech matches

2. Boston will still remain “behind” the Silicon Valley consumer-facing tech curve and invest in it’s strengths – enterprise, security, financial and networking.

3. The divergence of the economy will continue – the exceptional and talented to drive the market, and the average and below average marginalized.

4. Visa recruiting will pick-up. Some of the best and brightest entrepreneurs and workers come to the US on a visa and that is a good predictor of the tech economy in 2012.

5. Major VCs and venture-capitalized companies will pull back, a  bit — Darwinism will reign supreme – the best and brightest will rise to the top.

6. Salaries will become a bit more robust/unstuck at all levels.

I’m very excited about 2012, and believe it’s going to be the best year since 2006 to be on the job market for tech talent, and for those looking to recruit top software engineering talent in Boston – time to partner with those “in the know”
