Bluecherry, LLC: Bluecherry: Linux software developer

Posted by | November 15, 2010 | Web Pro Job Tips


Location: United States


What we are looking for:
You are the type of person who reads technical data sheets and APIs just for fun. You are someone who gets a sick pleasure out of coding and scripting. You can look at a problem and quickly think of several ways to fix it on a scale of very evil to less evil. You enjoy playing with cool new toys. You think of evil things to do to software developers who are lazy and make bad code. You enjoy looking over a source control system and seeing all the code you’ve published. You do the majority of your coding in a text based editor and think…who needs those fancy GUI editors anyway? You find it annoying that a Debian / Ubuntu package wasn’t available so you packaged a program yourself. Bonus points if you packaged your own software that you wrote. Triple bonus points if you are a Debian / Ubuntu package maintainer.
If this describes you then read on!
