Here's my second position type, with a wider timezone spread for the remote options, and with different languages.

Define the internal API that encapsulates our platform capabilities, and implement services that orchestrate it.  Work for a great company on a good code base with smart, nice, creative people.  For this position, we're open to remote (no more than 5 hours either direction from US Eastern, though Europe may need to time shift a bit).  You'll work in #Ruby , but also be a part of choosing another language--#GoLang?   #Erlang ?  Help decide!

Walking up the trail was noticeably different than using a treadmill in an air-conditioned room.

This is a catch-up post.  Hopefully we'll get back now to shorter, more timely and more easily digestible posts.
Welcome back! We've been away working in secret for awhile. Our work is open now, so our retrospective notes are too. Our current project is a web-based GUI for Juju. Juju lets you deploy connecte...

This was the secret project we were working on for the past month or so.  Project updates were internal.  I'll start blogging our retrospective notes publicly again this week.
 
Juju now has a web gui ... drag and drop your cloud pieces, move them around, connect them together .... scale them out.

I'm hiring!  I've got two kinds of position, and this is the first I'm posting.

Define and implement core parts of #Heroku’s business logic and its user-facing API. Work for a great company on a good code base with smart, nice, creative people.  We're open to remote in the Americas (no more than 2 hours from US Central timezone), or work in our San Francisco office. #Ruby experience preferred, but not required.  Please apply and share!

We had a big Juju GUI release today. Read about the big new feature at http://jujugui.wordpress.com/2013/09/18/juju-gui-0-10-0-a-big-release/ and try it out in a demo at https://jujucharms.com/sidebar/ .  Want to know about Juju itself?  Check out https://juju.ubuntu.com/ for details.
Google+ aims to make sharing on the web more like sharing in real life. Check out Circles, Events and Hangouts, just a few of the things we've been working on.

At Canonical, we're looking for a front-end expert to raise our game on the Juju GUI project.  Demo is http://uistage.jujucharms.com:8080/ and Juju info is at https://juju.ubuntu.com/ .

We use YUI 3, so you'd need to come up to speed on that framework, but if you are a JS expert without YUI 3 we're hoping that a lot of your experience would carry over and you'd come up to speed quickly.

This is a home-based position.  The best timezones for our group are in the eastern side of the Americas and the western side of Europe and Africa, though we're considering people just a bit out of that range (such as US West Coast and eastern Europe). Canonical has been a fully distributed development company for many years now, so we have some good skills and best practices as a company to help everyone to get along, feel connected, and feel productive.

The job description is over here: https://ch.tbe.taleo.net/CH03/ats/careers/requisition.jsp?org=CANONICAL&cws=1&rid=482

(It's quite ugly on Chrome with the styling gone, because of a HTTP vs HTTPS issue that I've already raised internally.  Sorry.  Use Firefox, and/or hold your nose.)

Please share!
