What's your dream job?

Mine is working either at Digital Ocean as a server maintainer/service/programmer or at Red Hat developing gnome.

    Running a company without being hands-on and earning salary enough to buy a tesla car every day....just living the life.

    I have it. System and infrastructure administrator, with a focus on tools development for process improvement, reporting, monitoring, and automation.

    Secondary bonuses: high salary, transit commute, downtown office, flexible work-from-home policy, flexible time off policy, working with cutting edge technologies, no set hours, no oncall, no travel. Only took me fifteen years in IT.

    @Jonarz I love the projects they work on and how they are not into making money but making great games that everyone loves to play

    I might have missed what you are referring to, can you elaborate please.

    @byte Recently CDPR got critiziced by ex-employees and on some website it got a not so great rating when it comes to employee satisfaction, and nobody really knows what's going on.

    I work as Security sysadmin.
    It's a boring as fuck job.

    I would like Gnome if it would run more fluid than a slideshow. But so far I haven't seen a PC which can run Gnome without any lags.
    So I prefer KDE because it runs buttery smooth even in VMs. And recently i3.

    @Chlodovechus do you do the same things everyday or why is it so boring?

    My actual Job is my Dream job. Developer in a international company, developing procurement processes. Based on c# which you can run in a local network or in a cloud service..
    Nothing is better than developing a procurement -system in the morning ;)

    I do different things every day, but none of them are interesting.

    Most of the work is just managing policies of security systems, installing and configuring them. You also deal with system bugs that affect end users and it's really annoying.
    I feel like some ovetpayed PC tech sometimes. I hardky do any coding in my job(apart from some automation scripts here and there). I don't like being a system admin and using some product another person programmed. I want to be the programmer!

    Not sure how it's called but I'd love to do something like incident response/monitoring with cyber security.
    Monitoring IDS's, firewalls and so on (but then with like 24 hours shifts or something) and responding to live threats/breaches.

    Yeah I'd fucking love that.

    @CurseMeSlowly Digital Ocean seems to have great working conditions, at least that's what they're saying on their website. And for the Gnome/Red Hat thing, I really enjoy making gnome applications.

    @Dimmerworld well yeah, working full time at Red Hat would probably not work. I still think it'd be cool to work there though.

    Am currently a development manager, and this used to be my dream job, that was until I heard about the wonderful field of tech evangelism...

    You should start by reading the Linux Kernel like Alan Cox

    The trouble I've discovered is striking the right balance. Compensation, quality of life, benefits, time off, micromanagement, and the actual work itself.

    I've interviewed for exciting jobs at Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Amazon, HP, Red Hat, and many other high profile employers, and found one thing in common across them: they want you IN THE OFFICE, and they want you there for more than the time that indicates a work/life balance. Their pay and benefits are absolutely stellar, but a home life is not really something that fits into their model.

    I became a father in 2016, and while I still love working with technology, I love my son more, and would rather spend my free time with him than in the office fighting a high-pressure deadline.

    So again, finding an employer that understands and accommodates the importance of NOT working is really important. My time is valuable to me, and an employer that doesn't respect that will not get my attention.

    I'm referring specifically to the admiration people have for these high-profile employers, and the aspiration people have to work for them, heedless of what I refer to as the, "burnout culture" that pervades the tech segment of their workforce.

    @byte I was refering to this video: https://youtu.be/AynvqY4cN8M and there's also another one on YouTube with more devs' reviews.
