Lampshades, Serious Italics, and Office People

This week: 10 jobs, 9 companies

Palo Alto Software essentially pulled the recruiting version of hiding under a lamp shade — in a well lit room. While it’s true that the job posting says “Company Name Withheld,” we’re onto you, Palo Alto. It’s a QA position.

QA Analyst

The not-a-Wordpress-company IDX Broker needs a mid-level Technical Support Specialist to help out their clients from their sweet office downtown. And if you didn’t get a chance to take a look at this year’s Tech Tours, it is very sweet.

Technical Support Specialist

The City of Eugene requires not one, but two, PC Network Technicians to fix seemingly anything remotely electronic among 51 facilities citywide (and I assure you it’ll come down to that). Also, the city has 200 business systems?! Wow.

PC Network Technicians

Those who can’t do teach. Or so it’s been said. However, you’ve never met a CBT Nuggets trainer — or Technical Course Designer (of the eLearning variety). While, yes, you could probably get away with general curriculum design experience, it looks like you should have a serious IT cert or two get this gig.

Technical Course Designer

A while back I cracked the PeaceHealth job description code. It’s actually pretty simple. Anyone who isn’t a healthcare professional, but still works in an office, they call an analyst. Application system analyst. Supervisor analyst. Or the recent, Desktop analyst. However, if you’re an analyst with a nursing degree. They call you an Informaticist. Now that’s fancy.

Desktop Analyst

Informaticist

Sooo… PenFed has a gig open for a Fraud Analyst that they labelled IT, mostly, I think, because it says “data analysis” and only in relation to Excel. Or maybe it’s just an organizational thing. I’ll let you decide. It seems like it might be a little more actual analyst-y than a PeaceHealth analyst.

Fraud Analyst

It’s certainly not unreasonable to think that the Database and Training Coordinator position at Holt International remained open for two months. It’s also not unreasonable to think someone bailed after a few weeks (for whatever reason). I only say that because it’s seems like the same job description from middle of August with a new timestamp.

Database and Training Coordinator

Lane Community College evidently has an adult education presence at the county jail downtown. Those educational opportunities evidently involve computers. And, unsurprisingly, those computers require updates and repairs, just like normal computers.

Part-time, Temporary Computer Support Specialist

Sheer ID evidently just got around to updating their jobs page. There’s about four sales jobs. Besides the preferred 8 years of experience, they also require their new System Sales Engineer to have the CCQCTACA Italicized Core Sales Competencies™.

Reboots, Wizardry, and Extended Interests

 

Thanks all for your patience, and allowing me an extra day for this week’s post. It doesn’t seem to have made a difference, however. It’s a light week.

This week: 4 jobs, 3 companies

PeaceHealth needs a Desktop Analyst to deal with medium to complex problems. Never easy, though. Because the users will never come to you with the easy stuff. Ever. The monitor is always plugged in. Rebooting rarely works. Only medium to complex, which is why an MCSE is preferred, but not required.

Desktop Analyst – Tier 2 Desktop Support

CBT Nuggets has two new positions open. They’re not actually new, but they’re different — and recently updated. So, if you saw them once, give them another look.

IT Professional

QA Engineer

I’m not entirely sure what the Enterprise IT Project Manager does at University of Oregon, but the summary is dense and full of important-sounding jargon, just like the school’s bureaucracy. It’ll take a person with the cunning of a fox, and the charm of a wizard to make things happen, and they know it. You can tell because “salary is commensurate with experience.”

Blockchains, Video Surveillance, and a Royal Flush

This week: 7 companies, 7 jobs

Yes. Yes. I know. I’ll just get this one out of the way. Symantec. Everytime I post of their jobs I get a few comments that basically say, “Ewww. Why?” Well, it’s a tech job. That’s in Eugene. Well, Springfield, but whatever. So, here it is.

Principal Site Reliability Engineer – Norton Engineering / Norton Cloud Security

Tek Wissen is one of those companies that has a “Who we are” section that leaves the reader just a little more confused than before. However, they’re hiring a IT Field Service Engineer that’s not confusing. It’s actually pretty straightforward. You set up and fix computers.

IT Field Service Engineer

Ah, yes. It’s that time of year again. The time of leave changing, brisk evenings, and the University of Oregon Educational and Community Supports (ECS) hiring for a Software Developer and Research Assistant job description. It’s a 12-month contract.

Software Developer/Research Assistant

The Eugene office of PenFed has awoken. Likely activated by its mothership in Reston, Virginia. It has one mission. Find analysts and IT pros. This week, it’s a First Class Technician for Workforce Technology, which tastes like a desktop support with an aftertaste of help desk.

Technician I, Workforce Technology

In the past few months, Roseburg Forest Products sought out and hired a tech support lead, senior network engineer, and data architect. This week, it’s a Senior Systems Engineer. They’re one CIO away from an IT royal flush — and, dare I say, a full house.

Senior Systems Engineer

Car dealer and purveyor of occasional backpacking blog Kendall Auto needs an IT Network Administrator that’s very familiar network security appliances and software, and also dabbles in video surveillance equipment. Oh, and regular network stuff, too.

IT Network Administrator

This one is pretty cool. Not just because you’ll have a sweet title, Senior Blockchain Developer. Not even because it’s First Foundry, which I’ve heard is a great place to work. Mainly because you’re probably going to building cool stuff with a new-ish technology.

Word Ordering, Suspicion, and the WordPress Gods

This week: 9 jobs, 8 companies

Don’t forget that the TAO pulled together this massive list of Tech Tour Job Listings. It’s pretty comprehensive and geographically diverse. And also remember that those are only the tech companies in the area. As you well know, there are many more jobs out there. Like these.

A special thank you to the people at Collabos for sending me their job link this week. They’re looking for a QA Engineer with, as you’d expect, experience with every desktop and mobile OS, browser, and system known to mankind, black box testing, and sweet command line skillz.

Quality Assurance Engineer

Everyone needs IT, and that’s true right now at Market of Choice. Among the butchers and bakers (and candlestick maker) jobs they also need an IT Systems Admin with responsibilities in both the network and system side of things.

IT Systems Admin

The University of Oregon, or more specifically the College of Arts and Sciences Web Services team, has an opening right now for an Application Support Specialist. By application support, they means, um, I actually don’t know. They list a bunch of common CMSs, Access, and an unnamed CRM. So, something to do with WordPress?

Application Support Specialist

Broadcast Software International either lost their most recent Support Technician or they’re hiring another one. If their probationary period is eight weeks, then you might want to ask about that. It looks like JOAT-type gig with networking, help desk, and possibly radio equipment experience.

Support Technician

Do want to gig your IT skills out as a 1099er? Do you have all your own tools, including a fax machine, and own reliable transportation? Well, Avid Technology will purchase your labor for a nominal fee. Just remember mileage reimbursement is 53.5 cents per mile.

1099 Service Technician

Our old friends at PenFed Credit Union have another IT Business Analyst position open. It’s actually a pretty thorough job description that paints a picture of someone with all their fingers in a lot of business pies. Think the Scrummy types, or shall we say Product Owners.

IT Business Analyst

I missed this Supervisor Application Systems position at PeaceHealth the last couple weeks. I blame it on the job title. I mean, seriously, PeaceHealth. Why are all your orderings word backwards titles job? Here I fixed that for you.

Application Systems Supervisor

Finally, I’m guessing Concentric Sky might have put at least one of these postings up just for the TAO Tech Tour as to avoid the “we don’t have any actual position open, but we’re always hiring” line. I could be wrong. The timing is conspicuous though.

Frontend Developer

Software Engineer

Bonus job: The Weed Police

It might seem like someone’s dream to be the State of Oregon’s next Marijuana Inspector, and I have to admit, I saw the job posting, and my mind went there, too. Seems chill, right? “Like, hey, man, I’m the Marijuana Inspector.” Well, they should just call it what it really is — the Weed Police, and a quick read of the typical HR Working Conditions section shows that people might be a little mad that you’re confiscating their bud. It really puts the common HR line of “capable of lifting up to 50 pounds” in a different light.

Mardi Gras, Little League, and the New Sheriff

A brief announcement: Here are merely days away from the equivalent of Eugene Tech Mardi Gras, Halloween, and Christmas (not so much the holiday as the awkward bit part where you see family once a year) all rolled into one. Yes. It’s the 2017 TAO Eugene Tech Tour! I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited. In case you don’t know, it’s downtown on Thursday, September 21 from 5 to 8 p.m. with a little get together at Level Up from 8:30 to 11 p.m.

Stop by to say Hi! Feel free to stop on by the CBT Nuggets booth, um, somewhere. I actually have no idea where we’ll be, but if you can find it, I’ll be there. Otherwise, I’ll catch you all at Level Up for after hours. I’ll be the skinny white guy with a beard. I should stand right out.

This week: 7 jobs, 7 companies

Pacific Headwear, makers of Little League hats nationwide, needs an IT analyst at the Coburg offices. With a title like IT Analyst, would you expect anything less than a JOAT position. Data mining. Security. Confluence administering (because why not). Throw in a little customer support, and you’ve got an IT Analyst.

IT Analyst

Palo Alto Software needs not just any DevOps pro, but a Senior DevOps Engineer to pull all the right levers in their cloud environment to make things just happen. Because, that’s what DevOps does best.

Senior DevOps Engineer

Northwest Community Credit Union requires the services of a cybersecurity “first responder” to “keep cybercrime at bay.” Perhaps they even want a new sheriff in town? Someone who will clean up this town? You get the picture.

Cyber Security Specialist

Century Link has another dirty job on the books. This time it’s a Network Technician of the Cable Maintenance variety. We typically think tech job and we think desk-side tech jobs. To these guys, you are the end-user. You and your fancy roofs.

Network Technician – Cable Maintenance

Ah, yes. The elusive and mysterious $13- to $15-per-hour Technical Support jobs on Craigslist. I have nothing against Craigslist, or even entry-level gigs. Just give me a company to work with. Ya know? Anyways, you’ll start repairing copiers and printers, and eventually move to networking. We all gotta start somewhere. Even if it’s a Mysterious Craigslist Company.

Technical Support

Finally, Marathon Coach needs a, um, Computer Technician. Here’s the good news. They’ve updated the job description since December 9, 1997. The bad news: They might not have changed the posting since June 23, 2006. I don’t really know what Marathon’s system looks like, but there’s an 80% chance you’ll be walking into a time capsule of XP machines, which, actually, doesn’t sound like even the worst case scenario. After all, it could be Windows 8.

A final note: You might just want to apply with a resume and cover letter to their Craigslist ad. Because I just found their online job application, and there’s a 90% chance the last “I agree” button will refresh the page.

Computer Technician

Bonus job: For the right person, this is a dream come true. Local vintage stereo shop, QRX Restore essentially has an apprenticeship open. They claim to be among the only shops in the country doing this type of work, and I believe ‘em. I don’t mean that disparagingly. It’s awesome. Just read this write up about them finding a rare Sansui. There’s a lot of passion there. So, yeah, if you get this gig, you’ll spend your days repairing vintage equipment, nerding out on high-end Japanese stereos, and learning a lot.

Epic Ambulances, Bank Robbers, and Time Travel

This week: 7 jobs, 9 companies

Among all the RNs, physical therapists, and even priests positions open right now at PeaceHealth, they also apparently need an Application System Analyst with experience in the Ambulatory module from health system developer Epic. Epic also has modules called Cupid (a cardiology module) and Stork (an OB module). How adorable.

Application System Analyst

PeaceHealth also has a position open called Senior Applications Systems Analyst – Specialty Applications, Great Job. (My emphasis added.) I have no idea what you’d be doing. I zone out at the third instance of the word “utilize” in any job description. Good luck.

Senior Applications Systems Analyst – Specialty Applications

Do you appreciate emotional intelligence? You know, like, feelings. Okay, what about ITIL? You’re still with me. Alright, what about databases? I guess databases, too, or whatever. I’m guessing that will have something to do with the Database Administrator job at the City of Eugene, but they really buried the lead on this one.

What about time travel? They’ll start reviewing applications May 20, 2016. (The job is open though.)

Database Administrator

Northwest Pathology Services isn’t down with listing employment opportunities on their website or local job boards, so I missed this one. They prefer the buckshot method for finding candidates (i.e. – Indeed.com). Don’t worry, guys. I’ve gotcha covered. SQL Server experience required. Oh, and you’ll either be the backup sysadmin or also the sysadmin.

Database Specialist

SELCO Community Credit Union currently has two jobs up for grabs to the best candidate. Take note. They specifically mention your willingness to take part in “robbery training,” which makes sense. We’ve all seen enough bank heist movies to know that robbers skip the tellers and bank manager, and go straight for the SharePoint admin.

SharePoint Business Systems Analyst

Senior System Admin

Oregon Community Credit Union has an awesome job open right now for a Senior Developer. They determine your senior-ness by experience (10 years) and probably education (advanced degree). For all the nonspecifics offered in many a job description I see on a weekly basis, these banks are crushing it for specifics. Read on.

Senior Developer

Deus Machine needs an on-call tech for basic maintenance and troubleshooting of systems and networks. It’s a down-and-dirty, 24/7-type position for someone with their CCNA. Don’t worry. 24/7/365 on-call only applies to when something important breaks real bad, which never happens, right?

Network and Workstation Qualified Technician

Finally, Ambient IT Solutions needs someone with experience in basically every server and desktop OS produced since Y2K. Not to mention virtualization, Citrix, routing and switching, and SQL server. At least they didn’t mention “proficient in Microsoft Word.” Oh wait. Nope. Nevermind. We’re good.

Sharp Knives, Dull Acronyms, and Liaising with Oracle

Hey everyone. Remember the last couple weeks when there were like three jobs to post? And then remember that time I was a day late posting? Well, that was a school-related. I do apologize for that. In any case, the heavens over Eugene have opened up and rained down the tech jobs this week. And some cool ones, too.

This week: 11 jobs, 9 companies

As often happens with numerically sequential job titles, Centene recently hired for a Data Analyst III. Now, they need a Data Analyst II. The difference? One. Obviously. But, really, the difference appears to be generating versus developing reports. And that’s not nothing. But since the DAIII position is still open.

Data Analyst II

Partnered IT Solutions has two sysadmin positions open right now. The entry-level one looks like a great opportunity for a person who wants their first IT job. The other position looks like a sysadmin gig. Yup. Sure does. For either job. Be prepared. They will ask you what kitchen utensil you’d be. The correct response: A knife. Say it flatly, and then just stare at them silently.

System Administrator

System Administrator – Entry Level

If you’d use the words “cheap” and “fast” to positively describe your work, you must be a Product UX Designer. If you’re the cheapest, fastest prototyper around, then Palo Alto Software wants you to apply for this position.

Product UX Designer

StepUP IT Services has a very frank job posting on Craigslist that basically looks like the exam overview for CCNP with a sprinkling of VMware and PowerShell (as well it should). Serving over 70 clients, I’m sure you’ll get to use all of those skills, maybe even daily.

Senior MSP Senior Network Engineer

As with many government-type jobs it appears there’s a flowchart for the Senior Cybersecurity Specialist at EWEB. I’m guessing any “No” leads you to the end of the line immediately. At least this one only has one of those. It goes like this: 5 years experience in advanced technical security work? Yes? Onward to the essay questions. Good luck.

Senior Cyber Security Specialist

PBIS. No one knows what it is. Not even OSEP at the Department of Education. But that shouldn’t keep you from becoming the User Support Representative for it (whatever it is) at the University of Oregon. You’ll be doing things like optimizing user experience, supporting the people who use it, and maybe, just maybe, you’ll figure out what it is along the way.

PBIS User Support Representative

Roseburg Forest Products is evidently just neck deep in Oracle databases, and they need someone to architect and warehouse those databases. Oh, and administrate them, too, in a seniorly fashion. Let’s not forget that. I think there’s some interfacing. I didn’t see any liaising though, which is a shame because sometimes I play a drinking game while writing these and the verb “liaise” is a doozy of a penalty.

Data Warehouse Architect/Administrator, Senior

Lunar Logic has at least one new gig open right now for a Web Application dev. Probably two, but I only saw one active out there in the world. They either forgot to take one down, or they just put it up. I’ll let you figure that out.

Senior Web App Developer

Junior Web App Developer

Bonus job: Typically, I’ve thrown bonus jobs into the mix when I find something that catches my eye on Craigslist. Other places, too, but mostly Craigslist. This week, however, I have a shameless plug for a job I’m posting myself. What good is a job blog if you can’t plug your own posting every so often, right?

CBT Nuggets needs a Digital Marketing Associate, and you’d be working with yours truly. If you like to write and love to edit, can familiarize yourself with tech terms quickly, and want to work somewhere plainly awesome, then you ship your resume off to CBT HR. Or, you can just send me your resume and a few clips to mhess@cbtnuggets.com.

Rugged Barcodes, High Places, and Colonel Walter E. Kurtz

This week: 5 jobs, 5 companies

I’ve been writing this blog for about 5 months now, which is obviously longer than some positions remain filled. It happens from time to time. I think, “Haven’t I seen this job open before?” Go back a little ways, and sure enough. 4/3 – Software QA Manager, Palo Alto Software. Well, there ya go. A new Eugene tech job.

Software QA Manager

Data Logic makes automatic data capturing devices. We layman probably know them better as barcode reader. Semantics aside. They need a Staff Application Software Engineer to build software for “rugged data collection” devices for, yup, capturing those pesky data attached to the million tiny things that businesses need to track.

Staff Application Software Engineer

Moonshadow Mobile has a technical support position open on their website. Nope. Just kidding. That’s where they permanently store their high-end job descriptions. This one is on Craigslist. It says “QA testing” in the job description right before requesting a more-than-reasonable grasp of Microsoft Word, so… yeah.

Technical Support

Spectrum Communication essentially needs an IT/electrician for both residential and small business installation and repair. To really get a sense of this one, you just need to take a look at the long list of preferred abilities, which include words like “ladder,” “high places,” “pole,” and “inclement weather.”

Technical QA Field Engineer

If you’ve ever dreamed of managing a platoon of student help desk employees, University of Oregon has the position for you — Library Public Technology Services Coordinator. And, yes, you’ll be in the stacks, or shall we say trenches of frontline, public library help desk. The horror.
