My company, Ember, is hiring for embedded software engineers and QA engineers in Boston:
We develop the chips, software, and tools for wireless sensor networks.
I’ve worked at Ember since December, and it’s the best place I’ve ever worked (and I’ve worked at some pretty good places!) And, no joke, all of my coworkers say the same thing. So either we’re that great of a place to work, or there’s something in the water, but either way, it’s awesome.
But, as Levar Burton says, you don’t have to take my word for it: We were just voted one of the top places to work in Boston: http://www.bizjournals.com/boston/news/2011/05/03/bbj-announces-best-places-to-work.html
Our QA engineers are more “developer-y” than many QA roles, so definitely check it out even if you’re not in the market for a more traditional QA position.
