So, I'm looking for a job now. My résumé is updated and I've called a few people I know. I'm curious if any of you know anybody.
Here is what I'm looking for:
Ideally someone would point me at an investor who was interested in funding CAKE development for a couple of years with possibly another couple of people. The focus would be on creating a web-service that provided various services for CAKE users, not selling CAKE itself. A business model like LJs is the idea.
Barring that, I would really like to work for a company that wasn't so interested in someone who was capable of cranking out code. I'm not any good at that. I can program well, but I'm not fast, and I'm very cautious about working with a system I don't fully understand. OTOH, I am pretty good at talking to people about technical stuff, talking about design, pointing out flaws in designs, and creating new designs with new (but hopefully much less numerous or severe) flaws. So, a job that focused on the latter more than the former would be good.
And here's a few bullet points:
- Working on code that was going to be published as Open Source code would be a huge plus.
- I know Python and C++ best out of all the programming languages I know.
- I would really vastly prefer working with a POSIX-like environment like Linux. :-)
- I do best when working with systems level software, not UI software
