Apigee is looking for a few good SEs.
An SE is a Sales Engineer. At Apigee, this is a member of the sales team who’s very technically adept, loves technology, and loves talking to other technologists about how to apply cool technology to solve hard problems.
This person needs to have a good developer background in server-side apps programming, with good C++, Java or C# skills, and probably one or more of Python, Ruby, PHP and NodeJS. Of course should know APIs, REST, SOAP very well, and should be handy with JSON, XML, and the various tools around those. Ought to know who Roy Fielding is, why jQuery is named jQuery, should know what RFC 2616 is, must love clouds, big data. Experience with AWS, Azure, RackSpace, VMware or IBM Smartcloud is a big plus. Beyond all that, the person’s got to love dealing with smart people with different perspectives.
If you know someone who fits this bill, lives near one of the NFL cities in the USA (you know, New York, Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Denver, San Fran, Los Angeles, etc), and wants to work for an ambitious late stage startup, send em my way: @dpchiesa on twitter.
Bruce Schneier is often right.
And he’s right again. Edward Snowden is doing the country a great service, by exposing the NSA data collection program.
