We are currently hiring a software developer at Red
Hat to join a small project team I’m on. The first
attribute we are looking for is that you are an extremely good
developer, where “good” means both “smart” and
Slightly more detailed requirements of the current project are:
You know a lot about coding and deploying scalable server-side
software, especially using Java. You are an expert in servlets,
databases, and the layers in between. The more hands-on experience you
have with big rooms full of servers and making code use them
effectively, the more we want to talk to you.
- You want to use these skills to have an impact on people’s lives.
You are interested in the risks, rewards, and hard work of trying to
build a new sustainable business around new unproven software.
You can get to the Boston area and get started in the near future. It
is not possible to telecommute to this job.
To have the skills and expertise we’re looking for, you have probably
written several hundred thousand lines of code in your lifetime
(i.e. you have a few years of experience). You should be comfortable
designing and implementing complicated software from the ground up.
When/if we have a more thorough and official job description I will
post that also, but in the meantime don’t be shy about sending a
resume to firstname.lastname@example.org, put “JOB”
in the subject, and I will forward it along. If you have some sample
code that is legally permissible to share with us, some examples of
your work would be extremely helpful as well. Hope to hear from you.
