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, especially if it's not easy to play with and test. OTOH, I am pretty good at talking to people about technical stuff, talking about design, pointing out flaws in designs, and creating new ones. 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
