4 posts in this topic

Sorry to interrupt. I'm contacting you because I'm leading the search for a Software Engineer with Windows client/server development experience for Azul Systems in Mountain View, California. You can work as a contractor or come aboard full time. The means to apply or formally refer someone are at the tail end of the job description. Note that all Accolo listings are at www.accolo.jobs

Windows Client/Server Developer - Long Term Contract or Temp to Perm

Server appliances that optimize today's emerging Java/J2EE enterprise applications are revolutionizing the industry and Azul Systems is in the forefront of this effort. We're looking for mid-level Windows client server developers to help us drive real-world optimization and performance within our communication software stack that connects Azul's compute pool appliance with an existing application server. You can work as a contractor or opt for full time employment. You'll be effective on day one with:

* Strong C programming skills

* Strong knowledge of POSIX APIs - specifically socket, poll/select, pthread APIs

* Experience with some sort of remote procedure call mechanism

* Experience working on a Windows proxy port

* Windows network programming

These will add to your value:

* Strong C++ programming skills

* System software development experience

* Developing and debugging multi-threaded code

* Performance analysis and debugging in a client-server environment

We expect the contract to run six months to get the port done and supported through QA. The contract may run longer because of follow on business with additional products.

Azul Systems is a global provider of enterprise server appliances that delivers compute and memory resources as a shared network service to transaction-intensive applications, such as those built on the Java platform. Our family of Azul Compute Appliances enables transparent, massively scalable infrastructure that supports the business priorities of today’s most demanding enterprise environments and delivers increased capabilities, capacity and utilization at a fraction of the cost of traditional computing models. The Azul Virtual Machine (VM) team is growing and looking for great new talent. This team is responsible for driving the enhancement and optimization of the highest performing VM on the market. We have a variety of exciting positions open and are looking for experience levels ranging from the master's new grad through seasoned veteran. You will be working directly with world-renowned engineers that have an un-paralleled passion for innovation and performance. If you are driven by the coolest new technology and these same passions, please review the positions below and contact us immediately.

As a member of our Mountain View, California, VM team your first mission will be to lead the development of a Windows proxy. You'll add crucial Windows programming experience and can help us solve a variety of performance and optimization issues involving protocol manipulation at the sockets level. You're someone who understands client server development; you've mastered the calls inside Windows for control of network operations; and you can work with threads and debug code in a multi-threaded environment. All of the above point to you knowing what obstacles must be overcome to optimize data transfer in a client/server application for the Windows platform. To contribute to all of the above, you'll need strong C programming experience because you'll be working on infrastructure software not an application. In our environment, C++ and Java will be useful, but supplementary languages. Azul Systems is tapping into an emerging and fast growing technology sector; we're generating 5-fold to 50-fold performance improvements for our customers, and dramatically expanding their capabilities while reducing the complexity of their processing environments. Our story is convincing and our customers are loving it. We hope you will as well.

Thats f*cked up. I personally consider this to be Spam.

Why not tell them also that by working in California they have to pay a HUGE state tax on top of federal taxes and give up most of what they earn in taxes they will never see again? What? No mention of competitive pay to make up for it? Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Why not also ask for people who know something about security instead of asking for people to help that poor team simply make another 0 day exploit by trying to mix crappy windows API calls, no doubt using a crappy compiler with a bad linker. That does not even make sense to me, unless they are talking about network sockets being the "posix" since sockets where originaly BSD/posix and a win32 compatible pthread lib being the pthread lib discussed.. and then you have to worry about license issues, depending on the source being used.

And to make it worse your using the trolling catch all "temp to perm" as if it suddenly makes it all better that your misleading people so that your company can skim some money off what the company in question would be paying the poor sob who was in that position, because that is how you make your money. The company with the job pays you 150/Hour, and you pay the guy doing the work 40/hour without telling him everything. Any contractor worth his salt knows that phrase is only used as marketing, so you must think that we are all stupid.

I for one, am insulted. If you - or anybody else - wants to advertise your staffing company here, at least give us the respect you want to be treated with.
