Let's have a discussion about working in the tech industry. I'm assuming that at least some of you aren't underage/NEET.

What kind of tech company do you work for? What do you do? What technology do you use? What's the tech industry like where you live?

I always wondered how those app farms worked. Do people just send a list of requirements to an army of pajeets and tell them to get going? Is there any design process, or do they use standard templates for everything?

Jacob Thompson

Do people just send a list of requirements to an army of pajeets and tell them to get going?
That is literally exactly how it works.

Sebastian Nelson
Sebastian Nelson

Actually they send it to a website that is a recruitment effort for armies of pajeets. They then just compete for the best working design which is usually copy pasted code from the web.

Its like a infinite amount of monkeys at a typewriter. If they type long enough they will compose a beautiful masterpeice in theory. That's the idea behind the websites atleast.

There are always exceptions(whites) but they are far and few between.

Angel Wright
Angel Wright

Unfortunately that's exactly how it works. Once you resolve all the sub-contractors, it's bloated templates all the way down.

Google know this, and their Android and Chrome developer advocacy are aimed squarely at India these days.
Microsoft was way ahead of the curve though. Their certification programs were saturated with pajeets pretty much from the get go.

What kind of tech company do you work for?
Electronics Manufacturing. It's pretty great. We build shit for other companies and my particular company I work for is like the outsourcing company that whores itself to the major tech companies for prototype projects by doing them for well under market value.

What do you do?
I hate this question IRL.
I develop PCBs/PWBs for various customers (mainly Navy and Server companies in town, though we also develop storm trackers and other cool shit like that). I work in SMT and on thru-hole projects which is a fancy way of saying I place 0201 (that's imperial units) surface mount components onto a pasted circuit board using tweezers (without a magnifying glass or microscope) and shove it in a reflow oven to harden the solder paste. Pic related. Well, that or I sit around tinning thru-hole components manufactured in the 60s-80s all day because the military can't fucking get their shit together and develop a surface-mount missile guidance system PCB as they bitch about their thru-hole shit from the 70s not meeting IPC standards.

What technology do you use?
Mainly Assembleon's Opal 8 head for saving me hours and hours of hand builds. I also get to use a vapour-phase reflow oven which is really fucking nice, though we got a BTU (convection reflow oven) in case those German sweethearts break down like they did a few weeks ago god that was awful. Best part is we're not averse to using lead solder on anything that doesn't explicitly state lead free, so all of your server shit is gonna slowly kill you when it overheats in that compact space you shove it into.

What's the tech industry like where you live?
Fan-fucking-tastic if you have 5+ years of experience in the field and are willing to work for about $4-$8/hour less than the market average (depending on occupation) while still paying market average for housing, utilities, food, etc. Because of the Airforce's presence though, we're likely to take over as the new "Silicon valley" if California continues to go full retard due to having lower taxes than the commie-infested Austin Texas down south.

used to have programming job
paid minimum wage
4 years with no advancement beyond Junior Programming Intern
was only one with a clue
had literally all the work dumped on me as a result

"open plan office", a hilarious understatement
actually a bunch of computers strung together with spaghetti wiring in the corner of a dirty warehouse
industrial pneumatic shit constantly running nearby and no climate control whatsoever
couldn't see the screen in summer and couldn't feel my hands to type in winter, when it rained the noise on the roof was deafening
no security and doors visibly rotten from the outside

doing (((web dev))) on ancient desktops with leaking caps, 15GB IDE disks and dying CRTs
simple stuff with "only" ~150KB of cool-JS-framework-of-the-month took 30s to load
also required to use an ancient laptop to ensure everything worked on IE6
more of my time went into ricing things to keep my own life bearable than getting actual work done

none of the code had any tests or docs
development was done on live database
started fixing that to preserve my sanity
found real problems and dataloss shit that had existed for years prior
got yelled at for "wasting time" fixing it

fileserver was, I shit you not, on Linux 2.4
ancient prod servers that were running some version of gentoo so old it still had a distro version number
asshole that set it up had long since left
security? haha what's that
had to get good at restoring backups and manual surgery on corrupted svn repos
used git-svn because operations were 100x faster and it didn't make me run out of disk space constantly
was yelled at and ordered to uninstall it because I got caught using git-log with its colorized output one day

Being a total NEET works out cheaper, I don't have to pay for therapy and antidepressants.

I do GNU/Linux sysadmin work for a painting company that puts up scaffolding, primes, and paints buildings. The company's office started out with all Microsoft Windows desktops. They have now all been switched to GNU/Linux. I've also installed a new server to host the company's web sites, a Nextcloud system, and a Jitsi Meet video conferencing server. Recently, I built a timeclock for the company using a minicomputer and an RFID reader/writer. I use Nginx and MariaDB for the timeclock's web interface, which I made using PHP/HTML/CSS and Python.

God that makes me angry. Last time I overheared that in the future not only they want to continue using poos to code but they want to give them engineering tasks as well. Things like CAD or doing FEM analyses. It's beyond fucked up. They fire skilled german engineers and hire armies of pajeets just because of muh shekels. Problem is that at mechanical engineering just copy pasting stuff from the internet won't work, but try to tell that to upper management.

Fellow hardwarefag here. I work for a major automotive supplier at an R&D facility. We develop the units, the manufacturing processes, do the pv/dv testing, assembly, and final product validation, then that all gets handed off to Mexico or China where the items are mass produced and our processes followed.

I build a lot of prototype and proof-of-concept things, and while I use a microscope/magnifier, I hand-solder 0402 stuff all the time. (No ovens - hand solder.) Basically, Engineer Joe will hand me a schematic and a BOM and say make me X-number of them. Then some girl will get the boards made, I'll order the parts, and then put the things together for him.

I get paid a ridiculous amount of money for what I actually do. I'm maxing out my 401k contributions, got the Cadillac of health plans with the lowest deductible possible, and I have more money than I know what to do with. I just bought a second house, an SVT Raptor as a second vehicle, a few new funz, a whole new wardrobe, and I still have 5 figures in my bank account that I'll probably use to decorate my new lake house.

But I didn't go into it green. I've been doing industrial repair since '05. I have tons of experience soldering, desoldering, identifying and crossing parts, and all kinds of repair work for industrial, commercial, wind power generation, transit, semiconductor manufacturer, and even military applications.

Repair techs can make some good money. I know some raking in six figures. I was making mid five figures when I was doing repair. I only ever got an Associate's Degree after dropping out of high school halfway through my third senior year. One of the most brilliant, most capable engineers I've ever met had nothing but a high school diploma.

secrets of multi-layered pcb manufacturing
What secrets? It's no different than making a single-layer or doubles-sided board, really. Just more repeated steps in the process. Plenty of videos on jewtube to show how it's done. The only real trick is making sure the layers are lined up the way they're supposed to be lined up, which can be a challenge on really small-scale boards.

5 figures
High fives. And it's the best money I ever pulled in my life. And I only just started with this place, so I have room for advancement and bumps in pay.

(((globalists))) who get
Banksters get
Sure. And there are beaners who get paid 15/16th's as much for doing work ten times as hard. It's all relative. All through high school (and for a few years after) I worked in restaurants, making nigger-tier wages. But it was fun and I learned a lot and went to school for it and finished out a culinary career as Sous Chef at a private yacht club. It was decent money towards the end, but not enough to start or support a family. After that, I started a business and caught the tail end of the construction boom of the late 90s/early 2000s. Good money. Hard work - as in physically hard. Never a day off when you're the boss. Fuck all that.

investing in the electric jew
Have to do something for the future. I'm not about to put all my eggs in Alex Jones' water filters or start hoarding nickels or something.
because it will be taxed to death
Maybe it will, maybe it won't. My contributions are pre-tax, so the possibility is there that the tax situation will change by the time I'm ready to retire. Yeah, it's a gamble. Name something in life that isn't.

I forgot to mention we do almost all of our CNC operations in-house. A guy who graduated a year before me does all that, though he's trained me to do it when he's not there. The military is freaking out because after this set of missiles get made, we've used up the last of the last components available for through-hole for their applications, so they either have to find new components or finally switch to surface mount. They're not even freaking out about the missiles themselves though- they're freaking out because they wanted to produce half of the missiles for selling overseas (E.G. the military is laundering money via missile production). Wish I could take pictures of some of this shit because it's hilarious, but ITAR regulations and I don't want to be imprisoned for god only knows how long.

Repair techs can make some good money.
Yep, true that. I like my job, but our company is pretty much outsourcing so I'm severely underpaid. Using it for experience and probably gonna go into the military as a Cryptological tech or Electronics tech to get muh veteran tax credits, maybe Aviation tech, but I'm not a big fan of working on airplanes. Down the line I want to work in a doping facility as a gas safety specialist where I can make six figures/year or the equivalent if the companies want to send me to their doping facilities in Croatia. That or in aerospace. Gotta work my way up though.

I hand-solder 0402 stuff all the time. (No ovens - hand solder.)
Hand soldering's a bitch. I like doing it for fun like during my IPC training, but can't stand professionally doing it. What music do you listen to, user? I mostly just listen to a shuffle of German folk metal, death metal, country, and cute animu girls.

Banksters get seven figures doing work 13/16th's easier than yours.
Banksters also commit suicide at a much higher rate and live in the most expensive cities in the world. Got friends who are bankfolks, they make closer to high 5 figure (sometimes 6 figure) incomes but they live in much cheaper cities and have far less stress. My job is pretty fucking easy, not sure how much easier a banker's job could be unless they literally do nothing all day (which I know they've gotta make conference calls and shit which is a shit ton more stressful). I fuck up and the company is out maybe $2,000. A Bankster fucks up and he's out millions.

Realise that kids nowadays can't get work experience to do shit if they are white because globalists won't let them work for money.
Dude you're seriously mental. Take your pills. Hardwarefag companies can't afford to pull diversity shit over here because there's not enough technicians as-is in most place. Your average electronics manufacturing plant is about 3/5ths white, 1/5th asian, and 1/5th Mexican/pacific islander. Maybe there's a few more Asians/Mexicans if you're working for a cheap-ass plant, but even then the Mexicans are still like 2/3rds white "Mexicans."

I'm 22 and went into the industry green as an intern. My family was making less than $25,000/year between my mother and me since I was 15 when I entered the workforce. No excuses. Just because the fancy companies won't hire you without work experience or being black doesn't mean there's no work to be found. Most businesses in America are still small businesses. How about instead of filing a dozen indeed applications like an autist you actually drive around the industrial/"work" sector in town (every town with more than 50-100k people living in it has one), see which companies have "help wanted" signs out front, and go apply there either in-person or via telephone/email? Before I got my job working for this PCB company I was considering taking a job for Bal Seal as a canted coil spring installer. One of my school friends just got a job at $20/hr as a metrology technician, and his only prior work experience was "pizza hut manager." If you still can't find anything, you are not above staffing agencies. They pay shit (or the jobs are temporary), but they have skill-related jobs for noskillz/no experience fags that will help build up your resume and get you the work experience you need. Literally all you need to work in the electronics industry is maybe an associates, and even then we're talking an associates of applied science (AAS) which is pretty much just one English/Math/Science/Communications class thrown in with your trade skill courses to show you are able to read/write technical drafts/do basic calculation and talk to a boss. Electronics Technology, Robotics Technology, Industrial Manufacturing, Electromechanical Technology, Water Quality Management, hell, even an HVAC associates will get you into the field if you go the right route. Right now, second pic related are all the trades offered at my local CC. Trades programs are only offered at my CC if there's is somewhat of a guarantee of employment (65% or higher within 3 months) post-graduation. It's why they had to remove Ferrier science last year. Git gud.

Yeah, until the tax man comes calling. Then what? You gonna pay him with rhubarb? Get real. Even real, honest-to-goodness mountain men get hauled in eventually. Remember that nutjob a couple years ago? "I am the living man. I fish to live," or some shit?
Unless you're already in on the game like most people your age.
user, I turned 28 and was a burned out, druggie-alcoholic line cook with a GED and no prospects for the future. I haven't been "in the game" for all that long. My first electronic repair job in '05 paid me $13.50 an hour as a trainee. As recently as '10, I was still only making sixteen bucks and some change. That's barely 30 grand a year before taxes.
Go to your local electrician's union hall and sign up as an apprentice. If they tell you that you need a sponsor, hit up some local electricians and tell them you want to learn the trade, and are willing to start out doing cleanup and go-fer-ing and such. Within a year, you'll be learning to pull wire and bend conduit. Within five or six (if you play your cards right), you'll be running a crew. Ten years from now, you're a journeyman making $80 or $100K a year - or better, because a journeyman can run his own business.

Forgot to add:
Trades are where it's at right now. There's a serious shortage of people willing to get their hands dirty to earn a living, because the last entire generation of people got pushed through jewish mind-control camps because their parents thought they shouldn't have to actually work for a living.

If I am looking to pour and bake my own PCB do you really think I do not know how to run wire already? Or hell my own buisness? Are you fucking joking with bending a peice of metal? Do you take me for a stupid faggot like yourself?

There are no jobs you stupid fuck for the youngins. Also your story doesn't add up. If you had a job(presumably your second) in 2005 that would make you 29 at a minimum. Because 16 years to start a job+13(12 years to 2017 and one for a burnt out line cook since your a faggot) would be 29.
You could be as clean as a dove and as sharp as a serpent but white males need not apply from my experiences. Without startup capital, to start a buisness, to get past the liscensing/monopoly fees, all one can do is learn, but not do.
You gonna pay him with rhubarb?
Could pay him in lead if he accepts that. Or maybe in food since the USD is worthless. There is also ways around that tax situation akin to pitting federal agencies against eachother. Especially if your in europe. Gas yourself you anti-self improvement faggot.

Security analysis/in-house penetration testing.

Langs: Python, Perl; OSes: All major desktop/server; Software: O R A C L E D A T A B A S E, Elastic Stack, Lots of whacky homebrew stuff that needs to constantly be inspected and patched for gaping security holes; My toolkit: Whatever is in Kali that day, The Hive, I try to do reporting in LaTeX. We have nessus and it's cool I guess, but I don't like vulnerability scanning as much as my own analysis.

Meh, if I lost my job I'd have to move but that's impossible in .edu and they're so laid back I'd rather not leave anyway.

Why the fuck are you complaining about meme languages? I get that Holla Forums is principled about certain things like language choice, but when you start considering being a wage slave those have to go out the window. When you are skilled enough to be paid money for your Holla Forums skills, you're a mercenary. Fuck how you feel about whatever language people want you to use, just use it and make $$$.

If you already have a programming background, you need to learn only 3 languages to be able to exploit every programming meme out there.

1. C
2. Java
3. Scheme

Learn these 3 to an intermediate level and it'll take you about a day to learn literally any business viable language you could want to throw on your resume.

Java = C#
Scheme = Haskell, Clojure

C + Java = C++, Rust, Go, Objective C,
Java + Scheme = Scala, F#
C + Java + Scheme = Legitimately any major scripting language. I.E. Ruby, Python, Javascript, PHP, Swift.

I get that there are many key differences between say Java and C#, Python and Ruby, etc. But those tiny differences are irrelevant as long as you understand the major programming paradigms behind each language. Learning C means you can do manual memory management and pointers. Learning Java means you can do OOP. Learning Scheme means you can do Functional.

Cultivate a lisp and ask a gay friend to help you shop for outfits. Shave for a few nights before the interview, wear the clothes he picks out. You'll make it past the diversity filter.

I'm a white boi and I've never had a problem with this (and I work at a .edu that requires candidates to be voted on by the "inclusion committee" before they can be hired). It's probably because I lust for traps and they could detect my homosexual aura. Those gays man, I swear.

I'm not really a security engineer per se. A lot of orgs see infosec, and IT in general as a cost center. To that end, do your job, make sure to get your recommendations documented on paper (i.e. send an email with your warning and get them to reply to it.) Your first priority when people aren't taking you seriously is to CYA.

That said, I'm very lucky. My CISO is a total bro. My initial job was shitty security oriented help desk work. When I talked to him about the kinda' stuff I was interested in he gave me license to try and hack into stuff. Now people take me seriously because if they do dumb stuff they know I'm going to hack their shit. I'm not destructive, but I got people deploying webapps to take security seriously because every new deployment met with me calling them about how I sql/cmd injected their thing or popped an alert or something. People just treat me almost like I'm a force of nature. Oh, our new, dumb sysadmin has been logging into every workstation with their domain administrator account? I told him not to, but he keeps doing it? Pop random workstation, get it to drop from the domain, new kid sent to re-add it, mimikatz his domain credentials, dump NTDS.dit, call his boss and tell him they should all reset their passwords.

Shit. No really, we got off Windows XP at the beginning of 2016. We finally got the last holdout off of RedHat Enterprise Linux 5. There's an Octane that management refuses to get rid of that acts as a door stop.
Visual Studio 2013 for Windows, make for Linux, Eclipse and Netbeans for Java
We were using subversion and the migration to git has been a clusterfuck (mostly people insisting on using git like we were using subversion)
What's the tech industry like where you live?
A lot of military. There are some other industries here and there.

I work at a global IT services company developing and maintaining a bunch of Java EE/Spring business web applications. It's soul-sucking, but at least I don't interact directly with customers.

I'm working on a Master's in Computer Science so I can enter a more stimulating field.
