Here I am, posting from work, and it's actually a work-related post! This must be a first.

It so happens that my employer wants to hire a number of engineers. We've received plenty of resumes for the open inexperienced-and-cheap electrical engineer, and it's fallen to me to figure out what sort of software person I want to assist me. Basically I'm cloning the largest subset of my job, so all I have to do is figure out what I've done in a software capacity in the past year, write it down, and that's the job description. Easy, right?

Basically, we're looking for a software engineer (CS or CE degree) with one to three years of experience with application-level C++ development for Windows. (Knowing that God-forsaken language Labview is useful, too, but I'm not sure I should expect to match the rest of my criterion if I ask specifically for Labview.) Source code control experience is a requirement; GUI development (MFC) and multi-threaded development is very useful as well. This being a small company, we pay below the market value and encourage employees to play in our IPO lottery. And we get to wear many hats, so get ready to do technical writing, QA, and a few more things I can't recall off the top of my head.

If any of my readers are interested, e-mail me and I'll get you the official job posting (if I manage to write it by then) and pass your resume to ... myself ... and I'll put on my "hiring manager" hat and go from there.

social subversion. An avid fan of salsa, developer-centric web design,
and cheesy pop music, Bitscape co-creates a world of love and
acceptance by sharing his vision. He enjoys helping low-tech firms
define their offline strategy, and he's advised many anonymous
unknowns, including the homeless on Pearl Street, escaped mental
patients, and hookers on East Colfax. As an aspiring web bum, he
applies his knowledge to a community venture, the Content Collective.
Bitscape resides in Westminster, Colorado, but may soon be moving into
a van down by the river. For speaking arrangements, don't bother
calling. Your bits will be lost in the noise.
