Summer Break, Water Works, and Spy Satellites

This week: 2 jobs, 2 companies

Umpqua Bank needs a sysadmin for their highly classified KH-24163 position. They say it’s a “Lending Support Systems Admin,” but we all know the truth. Two words: spy satellites. It’s obvious. In their quest to become “The World’s Greatest Bank,” they’ve gotten their hands on one or all of the Keyhole (KH) optical reconnaissance satellites. But at least you’ll be playing for the winning team.

Lending Support Systems Admin

EWEB, our benevolent utility operator, needs an equally benevolent Information Technology Support Specialist. Get your clipboard ready. In addition to a bevy of network tasks, you’ll be responsible for hardware assets. At least you’ll get to know everyone while crawling around looking at port labels and desktop serial numbers. (Hopefully they’re enumerated.)

Information Technology Support Specialist II

And… that’s it.

You know how every other email you sent out the last couple week returned with an out of office message? Yeah. Well, this is basically the blog equivalent. It appears that we’re in the summer doldrums of hiring.

I went to all my normal spots. If you see anything I missed, send it along right here.

Unsolved Absences, Vino, and the God Machine

This week: 7 jobs, 7 companies

Slocum Orthopedic wants you to come work for them. Everyday. Unless you tell them you’re not going to be there. It says so right in their basic responsibilities that the ideal candidate will “avoid unscheduled absences.” I guess that’ll be important as the otherwise pretty commonly tasked Level 1 & 2 IS Help Desk Technician. It just takes that one person to make a rule for everyone.

IS Help Desk Technician

Palo Alto Software needs a Senior Software Developer, and they don’t care about years of experience. Too often, they imply, excellent developers are cast aside due to an arbitrary number. So, get your portfolio ready and show them your mastery of React, ES6, Java, Dropwizard, Redis, and Postgres.

Senior Software Developer

Often enough companies will keep a posting on their site for a long time. This pretty old posting for a Server Qualified Technician at Deus Machina came screaming back to life this week, and it’s hungry for your resume.

Server Qualified Technician

Youth MOVE Oregon provides a number of services for young adults transitioning in their lives. Among those services — computer labs. I imagine the right type of person would really enjoy this gig, and I do mean gig. It’s 15 to 20 hours a week. Contract basis.

Contract IT Specialist

Ah, the campestral King Estate Winery in lovely Eugene, Oregon. A fine place to spend an afternoon, or perhaps even every weekday during business hours. Apparently, they have things like the internet, phones, and computers, and they need a Help Desk Associate to help them keeping all that stuff running. The CompTIA trio preferred (A+, Net+, Sec+).

Help Desk Associate

UI/UX people of the Eugene tech community. Here’s a great opportunity at Concentric Sky at the senior level. No surprises in this posting. It’s a straightforward posting with all the UI stuff you’d expect.

Senior UI/UX Designer

Do you love DevOps? What about ITIL? Are you an MSCE? Have you read Visible Ops? If you answered “yes” to the first three, you better at least scan Visible Ops before heading into your interview at IP Services. They literally wrote the book.

Tech Support Hinterlands, Viking Pets, and the Universe

This week: 11 jobs, 8 companies

Holt International has a refreshingly detailed description of their Database and Training Manager position. It’s 5 pages and closes out laying out the new hire’s (in the third person). “Viking/Oracle database is managed for integrity and effectiveness.” Kinda seems a little more pet than cattle.

Database and Training Manager

When White Bird first started serving the Eugene area nearly five decades ago they didn’t have an IT person. (And, yes, computers weren’t really around yet. That’s not the point here.) It was a team of grad students, doctors, and “energetic counter-culture members” who started taking mental and medical care to the streets. Now they have an IT team to support their operations, and you can be on it. I said all that to note they likely emphasize culture, caring, and dedication to the mission.

IT Systems and Desktop Support

I know for a fact that the engineering jobs listed at Pipeworks are very very old. That doesn’t mean they aren’t holding out for the right candidate. The QA gigs are new(er). And they’re definitely holding out for the right candidate. That could be you.

All Pipeworks jobs

Build Lab Tech I

QA Tester I

QA Tester II

Sr. Tester II

The universe gives the common person only so many chances to work at a local television station. While the universe is expanding rapidly, local television stations are, well, not. Alas! The universe has opened up an IT Support Specialist position at KEZI 9. The universe has prepared you well with a number of skills — among them hardware and desktop support. And, do you know what that means? The universe has offered you a chance (not a guarantee, I mind you, merely a chance) to not only meet KEZI 9 news anchor Matt Templeton, but you might even get a chance to take his support call. The universe provides.  

IT Support Specialist

It appears that Mid-Valley Glass & Millwork is looking for someone to administer their moderately sized network. From the job description, you might be alone in that endeavor. But, you’ll definitely be busy.

Information Systems Admin

I’d never heard of KAR Auction Services before finding this job. While that’s not surprising because I’m not too attuned to the auto salvage auction industry, but looking further, it’s a big company with lots of locations. Why is that important? The position they posted is an IT Field Administrator. Seems like you’ll either be traveling a lot, or taking lots of calls from even smaller outlets. (PS – Get it? KAR Auction?)

IT Field Administrator

As the Technical Support Specialist at Security Monster, you’ll live somewhere between Help Desk and the install team. The hinterland between troubleshooting and elevating. The grey area, deep in the weeds of Salesforce. A true specialist not of support that is technical, but perhaps as a specialist of technical support in and of itself. Email your resume via the Craigslist ad or the contact form.

Technical Support Specialist

International Paper has a peculiarly named opening right now, LAN Support Specialist III. Granted, you know what you’re signing up for. It’s not a WAN. Or even a PAN. Or a CAN. Or a MAN. It reads a lot more like a sysadmin or desktop support gig. You be the judge.

Unblinking Eyes, Original Sin, and the OSI Model

This week: 6 jobs, 7 companies

Bonus: 7 companies probably not hiring

Imagine if art could change the world. Imagine if you could come to work with people who care profoundly about art. Now, imagine giant, vividly colored eyeballs staring at you, watching you come and go every day, relentlessly, unblinkingly monitoring your every move. Imagination International has a couple tech jobs open for those who can imagine.

IT Support Assistant

Database Manager

Can you outsmart the next generation of nerds? If not, then don’t apply to this System Network Specialist job at Eugene School District. From the description, this job is mostly your typical systems (albeit a big network), and I imagine the occasional middle schooler who just found Cain and Abel, and has zero qualms about using it.

System Network Specialist

I’m having a tough time getting a read on this Eugene Public Works position for an Application Systems Analyst. Either they need someone to burn it down and build it back up, or they’re looking for year’s worth of duct tape and bubblegum. Maybe both.

Application Systems Analyst II

First Foundry has finally cleared the other two (very) old jobs from their careers page, leaving one —a Web Dev position. At least now we know.

Web Developer

CBT Nuggets wants you to break their apps. They want you to script machines that break their video player. Yes. They need a QA Engineer, and the right person cares deeply whether the logo displays properly in Opera. No. Seriously.

QA Engineer

I completely missed this still-open Senior Network Engineer post at Roseburg Forest Products. You might want to brand yourself as a lamination specialist. You hold all the layers together. The HR folks will love a good OSI Model pun. I promise.

Senior Network Engineer

Bonus: And now several companies on the Greater Eugene Technology Association of Oregon job board that aren’t hiring, but want you to send them your resume anyways.

As Applied Scientific Application likes to say, “We are not hiring right now. We encourage you to keep looking at our career opportunity page.” Oh, I’m lookin’ Applied Scientific Application, I’m looking real hard. At you.

Inside Baseball, Pirates, and the Craigslist Collection

This week: 11 jobs, 8 companies

A little inside baseball. I have rules for the jobs at Eugene Tech Jobs. I don’t post stuff from recruiters. I try to contact companies that post vague or confusing listing. I also don’t post remote jobs. I’m striving for curation that is exclusively local and real. Thus, I’m tied to the ebb and flow of jobs actually available, for better or worse. This week was pretty good. 11 jobs. Last week. It was okay.

Every week, I individually check 82 company websites for jobs, plus the big job boards. I feel as though these aren’t all of them. They’re only the ones I can find. I’d love to get to the point where more HR pros are simply sending me links. That’d be ideal.

Here’s my request: If your company has an open position, send it along. If you know a friend who has a job open at their place of work, pass it along. If you once knew a company that was hiring for a dev, IT, analytics, or any other tech job, let me know. Any link helps, and once a company’s careers page is on my list, I’ll track it religiously. Thanks for reading. Back to your regularly scheduled Monday post!

Emerald Technology Group is back at it again. Both hiring for a technician and also ignoring my emails requesting more details. Note that VOIP experience is a plus among all the other things you’d expect in an IT Systems Engineer posting.

IT Systems Engineer

What is a cable headend? Well, it’s the place you might be working soon and there are pictures in the posting. Three racks full of perfectly managed cables. Whether that’s the current situation or what they want from this 1099 position is unclear — just like which company posted the job to Craigslist.

Coax Cable Techs

There are a number of items in a job posting that I use to determine its legitimacy. Does it sound like an internal candidate? Is it posted in 40 cities? Well, Symantec has many jobs I ignore. This one seems legit for the right person.

Site Reliability Engineer

And then they also have three more jobs in the Register-Guard. I also assume these are legit. Particularly when these postings are emblazoned in the local newspaper with the subhead “TECHNOLOGY.” They must be serious. See them all here.

Software Engineers

Engineering Managers

Operations Research Analysts

EWEB is looking an admin with a very specific set of skills. A set of skills they’ve acquired over a lifetime of managing SCADA, automated controllers, and Cisco devices. It’s part IT, part industrial engineer. That specific set of skills that will make you a dream to EWEB.

Control Systems Admin

The City of Eugene Information Systems department needs an ASA Quality Assurance Engineer. Unsurprisingly, they put added emphasis on automation and Jira. I have no idea what ASA means. Though, I doubt it involves sail boats.

ASA Quality Assurance Engineer

CBT Nuggets continues its Summer Intern Hiring Extravaganza with this Machine Learning Internship. If you think the name alone sounds cool, then you should know that it also involved tracking down pirates— with robots. 

Machine Learning Intern

Roseburg Forest Products needs someone that knows about MDF. And, no, I don’t mean medium-density fiberboard. I’m talking Main Distribution Frames. And while that works better as a joke. I’m guessing you’ll be getting more into AD and desktop support.

iFrame Abuse, Inside Scoops, and the Indiana Jones of IT

This week: 6 jobs, 5 companies

If you’re an IT pro in the Eugene area, then you want to apply to the IT Professional position that just opened up at CBT Nuggets. Not only will you get to play with all toys, but you’ll also get to hang out with a great team. 

IT Professional

(If you’re interested in the inside scoop on this gig, the guys over at EugeneTech will likely put round out the details on their weekly TechTuesday Live Show.)

SELCO evidently doesn’t want to have a direct link to this Information Security Analyst position. Instead, they’ve trapped their job posting in an iframe. That’s no way to treat a job posting, SELCO. Don’t worry, it’s free now.

Information Security Analyst

Centene has yet another Data Analyst position open. This one is Level 3. From what I can tell, they’ve filled several Level 2 positions in the past few months. It doesn’t seem to be supervisory, however. Simply more senior in a numerical fashion.

Data Analyst III

For all the IT pros and devs out there who ever wanted to try their hand at sales, Partnered Solutions IT has an opportunity for you — IT Account Rep. They’re looking for a salesperson with a deep knowledge of IT systems. Or perhaps an IT pro with a knack for sales.

IT Account Rep

University of Oregon just opened two new jobs. I’m going to be honest. For one of them, there’s likely a nationwide search for it. The other one is a contractor with experience in point-of-sale databases, Drupal development, museum exhibit creation, archaeology, and a dash of adventure. You guess which one is which.

Obfuscation and Repetition on Independence Day

This week: 6 jobs, 4 companies

Happy Independence Day!

It’s a light haul this week. Perhaps it’s the holiday. Perhaps it’s the summer doldrums. In the past, however, slow weeks are often succeeded by a bumper crop of Eugene Tech Jobs. 

Symantec HR was busy last week while everyone else seemed to be out ahead of the oddly placed July 4th holiday. They posted three jobs.

Tech Support Engineer

Solution Systems Engineer

CSS Specialist

Community credit union SELCO opened up a sysadmin position with a fancy name: Core Systems Administrator. Read up on the Symitar Episys core solutions ahead of the interview. You’ll need it.

Core Systems Administrator

With a little detective work, I’ve concluded that these jobs from staffing agency The Fountain Group (article required) are the same contract job. While it was posted in Fir Grove, they all lead directly to one address — in Eugene. The same address as Emberex. A job so nice, they posted thrice.

Validation Engineer

Mobile Test Engineer

Android Engineer

Northwest Community Credit Union also opened up a 20-hour-per-week, part-time, experienced Programmer position. You’ll remember them as the place last week that requires “a high tolerance for frustration and failure.”

Programmer – part-time

Finally, you might want to take another look at these older postings from a couple regulars. These jobs are still evidently open and recently refreshed on the job sites.

Computer Creeping, Edgegrains, and Fight Clubs

This week: 9 jobs, 9 companies

The first rule of IDX Broker is to not talk about WordPress. The second rule of IDX Broker is to NOT. Talk. About. WordPress. So, when you go in for your Plugin Developer interview, remain silent and nod knowingly. They’ll respect that.

Plugin Developer

CBT Nuggets requires the right candidate to help the UX researcher creep on people while they do computer stuff. Yeah, that’s basically the job. It’s science.

UX Researcher Intern

Emberex, winner of my favorite job descriptions, is looking for a… ya know what? I can’t even do it better. They’re looking for a developer “and not just anyone — one who wants to write code in our QA department and report to a guy named Dave.”

QA Automation Developer

Did anyone else know that NASDAQ has a Eugene office? I had to double check, and I guess it runs the U.S. Equities Development Group, which sounds mighty. It’s a “small dynamic office,” so that checks out.

Software Developer Specialist

I’m sure there are many people at Roseburg Forest Products who know the benefits of flat sawn versus quarter sawn lumber. While that’s important, they also need someone who knows the difference between a hypervisor and a container. That’s the Senior Systems Engineer.

Senior Systems Engineer

This is honestly the first full-time job I’ve ever seen at Lane Community College, so gaze upon it, bask in it, but not too long. It closes July 9.

Oracle Database Developer

Connected Signals distinguishes between “occasionally” and “infrequently” in this Software Engineer job postings, which I personally find pretty cool. Even better, they’re using these adverbs to describe the regularity that the job requirements disrupt your home life.

Software Engineer

If you have a “high tolerance for frustration and failure,” then, um, I guess Northwest Community Credit Union has a job for you? (Their words, not mine.)

Programmer/Analyst

If you’re a hands-on kinda tech, then you’ll love this Network Technician job with CenturyLink. I’m guessing you’ll be crawling in the walls like Andy Dufresne pulling Cat cable.

The Loneliness of One, Double Vision, and the First Six Months

This week: 13 jobs, 10 companies

If all goes well, there might even be a Help Desk Coordinator #3. In the meantime, you’ll be officially known at OBEC Consulting Engineers as Help Desk Coordinator #2 as you help the IT Manager, Net Admin and, of course, Help Desk Coordinator #1.

Help Desk Coordinator 2

As the “single point of contact” for Glory Bee Foods clients, you’ll never have a boring day. Notably, networking and telephone experience is a must.

Senior Support Analyst

PacificSource either likes to post multiples of the same job with different ID numbers months apart, or they are, in fact, hiring for two new developer positions. My money is the latter.

Application Developer

Associate Software Developer

As the Director of Software Solutions at Pearl Buck Center, you’ll be coordinating with the COO to build apps from the ground-up, which is pretty cool. However, they also seem to have your first six months of work totally laid out for you in the job description. Wow.

Director of Software Solutions

TEKSystems has a job so nice they posted this virtualization-heavy job twice. The first one looks the most polished, so I’d apply there.

Senior Systems Engineer

Senior Systems Engineer

Datalogic needs a rugged software engineer for their rugged mobile devices. Well, they’ve come to the right place. Emphasis on SCRUM, Windows, and an advanced degree (desired).

Staff Application Software Engineer

This temporary job with Oregon Medical Group looks perfect for someone trying to get some IT experience. No experience or degree required. Presumably, it’s a try-before-they-buy situation.

Applications Support (Interim)

I evidently missed a few openings in the Hawes Group family of companies. Many apologies. They’re still open, however. As expected from this suite of “accounts receivable” companies and their big call centers, you’ll either be hitting the phones or fixing them.

Technical Support Specialist

Application / System Administrator

Junior Technical Support Specialist

No more bus jokes. I swear. Eugene’s transit system LTD is getting down to business with the reports you’ll be creating in this job.

Database / Business Intelligence Analyst

Finally, Lane County has re-posted this job, and labeled it as a “continuous opening.” I honestly never really understood the purpose of these types of postings, but you can give it a shot anyways.

Breaking In, Breaking Down, and Breaking Bad

This week: 10 jobs, 10 companies

Let’s play word association. What do you think when you see the words “Wordpress” and “Eugene.” Remember you’re on Eugene Tech Jobs. No? Okay. Let’s just throw in the word Developer for good measure. If IDX Broker came to mind, then you are absolutely correct wrong (see below). 

WordPress Developer

A note: I’d like to point out (as it was pointed out to me) that, in fact, a majority of the development efforts at IDX are non-Wordpress. Perhaps this is best evidenced by the other job opening at this great company, Data Software Engineer. So, if you thought IDX from “WordPress” and “Eugene,” then you were wrong. Come back and play next week.

Remember that 22-year-old researcher that thwarted the recent WannaCry malware attack? Well, I have no idea if that’s exactly what you’d be doing at the small Eugene Support.com office, but it’d be cool if it were the case.

Malware Researcher

If dirty data makes you mad and clean data makes you happy, then you’re not alone. The healthcare giant Centene needs a Data Analyst II.

Data Analyst II

A while back, Rosen Aviation posted a Software Test Engineer with wording that led me to believe they were looking for someone to literally break stuff. Considering this new posting specifically mentions FAA certification DO-313 Glass in the Cabin, there’s little doubt that you’ll be testing things that if broken will be breaking bad(ly).

Test Engineer

Eugene-based company Photocopy Inc looks to be expanding into the world of managed IT services. Thusly they need technicians to do their managed services.

MSP IT Technician

In a town with 23,000 college students, you know that you’ll keep busy as a “Mac Tonician” at the Mac Tonic store. They’d prefer someone Apple certified, but they’re allowing up to 90 days to get the cert.

Mac Tonician

Bonus: After 90 days, you’ll likely also be able to identify on sight most substances that can leak, fall, or be forcibly jammed into a computer.

I’m guessing you’ll be up against a nationwide search for the Sr Principal InfoSec Analyst for Penetration Testing at Symantec, but call it local pride that I’m hoping someone in the area has the Red Team experience to land this sweet gig.

Sr Principal InfoSec Analyst for Penetration Testing

Are you ready for the front lines of credit union tech support? If so, the Northwest Community Credit Union just posted a Tier I help desk job, and it’s not for the faint of heart.

Help Desk Technician

Finally, another University of Oregon job, but only one this week. The Educational and Community Supports (ECS) research unit is looking for someone to liaise (my least favorite verb ever) between researchers and the PBIS Applications group.

User Support Representative

Bonus job: Digital Vinyl Technician

Honestly, the only reason I picked this bonus job was the same reason I clicked on the Craigslist link — digital vinyl. I thought perhaps it was a play on words. After all, can there be digital vinyl? I don’t know. I’m not big on records, but consulting with a friend, it’s confirmed. There can not. By definition.

In fact, it’s a graveyard shift gig for a vinyl sign shop. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to work a graveyard shift, it’s quite the experience. The sun will mean nothing to you, but so will the darkness. It will be your ally. You will be molded by it. And then you’ll probably find a new job — or go full Bane.
