I left a prompt in YsabetWordsmith's poetry fishbow. You should, too.

If you've been following my adventures at all (and if you're not, what are you doing reading this?!), you know I'm living in Seattle and working at Amazon these days. Well, our team is hiring, in both Seattle and Vancouver.

I'm in the Consumer Payments team; our biggest project recently was the Amazon Prime Rewards Card ( ), but we also handle things like the store card, installment payments, and so on. We use technologies like AWS, web development, machine learning, and microservices, at scales up to tens of thousands of transactions per second. We also have our own functional programming framework for batch processing (yeah; sometimes you still have to do that) up to millions of records.

We're looking for SDEs, SDETs, PMs, and TPMs. Let me know if you're interested, and I'll connect you with our team's recruiter.

Two very different, very well-written comments on the Readercon mess. catsittingstill | Readercon and stray dogs pocketnaomi: Readercon and me ETA: Readercon: Public Statement

A friend of mine, [personal profile] pocketnaomi, is CALLING FOR HELP because of problems with her health care provider, Grouphealth. Specifically, they have taken the only drug that works on her fibromyalgia out of their formulary. That means that, as of July 1, she'll be paying $600/month for it.

Anyone with ideas about what to do should go comment on her post either here on DW or over on LJ.


6/18 edit to allow all comments, in case N's journal doesn't.
