Open Engineer position in Bay Area/California

7 replies [Last post]
Anonymous

As I hinted in a prior post, we're looking to expand the sun-backed
engineering resources on JDNC, so if you're located in the Bay Area
and think you might be interested in joining Sun's J2SE engineering
team to work on JDNC, please send your resume directly to me:
amy.fowler@sun.com.

Obviously we're looking for someone with solid Swing experience,
good OO design skills, and enthusiasm for this project. Experience
in app development, XML, and SQL databases would be a plus.

ciao!

Sorry -- a "tract home" is a house which is typically built
as part of a sub-division where all the houses are constructed in
mass by a single developer. There's nothing wrong with living
in one; there's just something wrong with paying a million
dollars for one!

No. That's why there is an open req for another developer :-)

It's too bad that the geography seems to be paramount.

We have received notes of interest from a few people who are
not located in the Bay Area and we are willing to consider
those candidates, though I'll be honest that we do have a
preference for someone local.

Why? Despite the industry's increasing ability to work
remotely and a clear ability for geographically disconnected
communities to work jointly on open source projects, nothing
truly replaces a team who is co-located and can collaborate
face-to-face (you should see our whiteboards), and of course
it doesn't hurt if they truly like working together (I'm a
very big fan of personality-harmonized teams :-).

Additionally, it's logistically easier for us to bring on a new
permanent employee if we can set them up on a Sun campus vs.
a custom remote setup.

That said, we can't deny there's loads of engineering talent
which simply doesn't reside in the Bay Area (maybe an indication
of an even higher IQ to realize a million dollars for a tract home
is just plain insane :-). Also, given the open-source nature of
the JDNC project, it lends itself better than others for remote
participation, as many of you have diligently proved in this
community.

So, if you don't live in the Bay Area, but you have genuine interest
in joining Sun to work on JDNC/client technologies, please contact
me. Just realize that geographical location will be one factor
weighed in the larger picture that takes many things (skills,
experience, enthusiasm) into account.

you'll have to explain what a tract home is for
the international readers? Is that one of those
ones you can tow around using a tractor? ;)

It's the equivalent of a grass hut in different cultures ;-)
