    Fancy a new career?

    If any of you fancy moving to the private sector, SmoothWall are recruiting!

    We are looking for a junior programmer to join the Guardian team - you'll need C/C++ and linux knowledge for this one, perl and understanding of networking an advantage.

    Secondly, we're after a tester - some experience of software testing methodology would be useful, but not entirely necessary.

    Ideally, candidates for either post would be educated to degree level, but we are happy to consider anyone.

    Both jobs are based in our dev office in southampton (hamble).

    If anyone would like to apply, or wants more info, visit our website, or give me a call and i'll send you all the info. Similarly, if you know someone who might be interested, i'll make it worth your while if we end up employing them

    We haven't advertised pay scales; mainly because it's moveable - we'll pay the right person what they're worth. If anyone's interested and wants to suggest what they might be worth I will run it past Daniel - he's doing the recruiting. He's not in today tho.

    Hoof!

    We're *still* looking to fill both these roles, if you're interested, or know anyone who might be, we'll make it well worth the effort!

    Re: Fancy a new career?

    So you havent filled them in a month - knowing how many of us techie types there are down here, I am wondering why? Are you very very specific about what you want or?

    Hmmmm, programming - it's a bit like prostitution. I tried it once and didn't like it...

    Re: Fancy a new career?

    I don't know why we haven't filled them. It is certainly not the salary, we're having trouble getting applicants with the right skills (maybe we're a bit picky?) - there's certainly not that many people with a linuxy aptitude applying. Perhaps we're recruiting in the wrong way? I dunno. We are using a number of agencies.

    Even if you don't fancy it yourselves, if you know someone who does we'll certainly make the recommendation worth your while
