Jobs Update

Today I've been busy with other administrative tasks and have been unable to focus on the app I've been writing. I fear that tomorrow will be the same, but I hope to get back to it very soon.

I had a small flurry of activity with possible openings today. Early this morning I received a note from my manager about a short, 1 to 2 month project looking for some remote web developers. I fired off a note to them, but haven't heard anything yet.

I took a technical interview with the IRS/PRIME opening I mentioned yesterday. I felt that the interview went well, and I think the interviewer felt that way too. Later in the day one of his associates called to schedule a follow-up technical interview, which will be tomorrow morning at 10:30. I feel that I have the technical skills to fit well on this project: my concerns are about continuing to be associated with the PRIME project, and about the commute. If I could work remotely most of the time, I might be willing to take this job. I'm just not sure…

Late this afternoon I got an e-mail indicating that the San Jose job may be open. I had been restricted from consideration for two weeks while they gave first dibs to people who are already in the right division. I'm trying to control my excitement about this one, because it sounds like a pretty good fit for my experience and interest, and because it's open to remote candidates, i.e. we would not need to move. Here are a few excerpts from the job posting:
The successful candidates will join a high performance and fun team. Your focus will be on developing innovated web applications…. We are looking for highly motivated candidates that work well in a remote team environment. This position requires strong technical skills in JAVA, portlet development, web services and a working knowledge of IBM software products e.g. Portal, DB2, WAS ,etc.. Strong communication, leadership and teaming skills essential. We will consider both work at home and tradition office candidates for the position.

That interview is set for Friday at 10:30 AM Pacific time, i.e. just after lunch here.
