My first post so please bare with me.
I've been using Neowin in a personal capacity for well over 5 years but now the time has come where I need your help.
I'm working on a project based in London, I cannot divulge the specifics as I'm under an NDA (None Disclosure Agreement)
This would be a permanent role and the reward is very high (60-80K+).
People with the following skills and expert or advanced level would be of particular interest.
* many other languages will be considered - Python, Ruby on Rails (ROR), PHP, Django etc
Its a very relaxed atmosphere, Office hours are 10am - 6pm. We have an open plan office in London with room for 8 staff.
Programmers are welcome to listen to music to help stay focused. We have a quiet and dedicated team as this results in the best performance.
Saying that someone with a passion about computer science (but with enough commercial experience) to realise that perfection takes time and many stepping stones. Equally they must have enough experience in academia or the commercial arena to be able to code solid 8 hour days without suffering from "Writers Block" as occurs regularly with young eccentric programmers.
Very happy to accommodative eccentricities and passion but not disruptive or argumentative characters.
Ideally the background I would like is someone to come from is a pure computer science academia or big technology corporation (Google, Oracle, Sun Microchemistry, IBM, Microsoft, etc).
There are loads of additional benefits too.
Because of the NDA myself and the company intentionally restricts the candidates from knowing about the project before taking a test as we are primarily looking for an employee who is focused on coding and drawing a large salary. We have had bad experiences in the past of individuals becoming too focused on the commercial progression of the business and this distracts them from the task at hand. This is one reason why we have total separate R&D and marketing facilities.
Its not my intention to spam or anything like that at all as I am genuinely also a massive fan of Neowin and I respect the site, administration, writers and the community, its a site I check several times a day, I just really need the communities assistance.
I sincerely hope I've not broken any rules or guidelines so If I've done something wrong or posted this incorrectly please notify me or get an administrator to get in touch.
I'd also really appreciate any referrals so please let me know.
Thanks for your time, if you'd like to get in touch please note my details below.
