Not going anywhere. And 4 days later the forums are down! Boo!

@Dave: I just saw this and added you.
I'd personally do as Joe suggests

You might be right about that, Joe.

The server it's running on has been sketchy lately. I've had 3 or 4 periods of downtime in the last month, I can usually get it back up first thing in the morning (Pacific time), but weekends are harder.

I'm not.  I'm pretty sure I'm out of a job but my boss won't pick up when I call to confirm.  So I have no idea what's going on.  He also moved offices without letting me know (to a different floor in the building) and also apparently used my laptop as a coaster.

So anyway, anyone have a Software Engineer position they need filled?

http://liveramp.com/careers. We were just acquired by Acxiom, but by all accounts we're going to remain pretty autonomous for the time being. Lots of hadoop/big data stuff (yes, Ron, we know you forgot how to count as low as petabytes).

I also have quite a few friends at Square. One of them runs one of the data analytics teams.

"Do you love working collaboratively with intelligent, energetic, no-nonsense colleagues?"

I like nonsense.

So, you're in the big data machine learning business... I'm guessing you're training deep networks. ;)

What's it like?

Heh, the recruiting people seem to be attached to including the same nonsense lingo everyone else in the valley uses. It bothers me. While the verbiage is trite, I feel pretty strongly that the part you quoted is true about the work environment. "Energetic" might be a stretch, but energetic people exhaust me anyway.

I interact pretty minimally with the machine learning part of what we do by choice. The product people in our company put more time pressure on these things because there's the most room for improvement. While that part is pretty appealing to me, I value my time outside work too much to get involved with it.
