Telecommute Mac OS / Java

February 20, 2008

I’ve got to admit, I’m a little confused why this position requires client-side Java/MacOS experience and human interface guidelines with SWT, but also wants Tomcat experience.  A little more detail would help me understand if this is some kind of client-server application that’s limited to (or emphasizing the Mac) or … something else entirely.

If telecommute’s your thing and you’ve got a background in Mac development, this could be an interesting choice.  More information about the company, the work and the compensation would be required to take this beyond mildly interesting.


ClearCanvas: Web Developer

February 20, 2008

ClearCanvas is looking for a web developer.

The listed compensation (45-65k) is low for my taste, although “web developer” usually implies that the employer is looking for someone with a front-end focus, a less broad set of skills, and lower pay. Plus, they’re a startup.

Still, if the compensation doesn’t scare you off and you’ve got .NET experience, the listing is otherwise interesting. Agile techniques, a chance to make a dent in a startup where you may get a chance to really make progress.

J2ME Developer

February 17, 2008

It’s nice to see some mobile software development in Toronto occasionally, such as this J2ME development position, looking for some of these qualifications:

  • WAP, J2ME, J2EE, Brew
  • Solaris, Linux
  • Weblogic
  • GPRS, Edge, EVDO

There’s very little information about th company/proect, but the mobile side is interesting.

I think the mobile industry would get a huge shot in the arm if they stopped trying to control everything.  I hope iPhone and Android shake things up a little.


Montreal: Director of R&D

January 31, 2008

This posting looked rather appealing until I discovered it was posted for Montreal.  Not that I mind Montreal, it’s a nice city, but it’s not Toronto, where I live, and for which I’m in the habit of looking at opportunities.

Still, if you’re in Montreal, do feel free to check it out.
