My employer is looking for a software developer.

We develop in Borland Delphi, for windows / PC, though Delphi experience is not a prerequisite.

We’re looking for somebody who knows a bit more than the superficial stuff about programming, but actually knows what bits and bytes are, and has a bit of knowledge about (or at least an interest in) embedded systems.

We offer a pretty good development environment – in reasonable surroundings (admittedly based in a fairly industrial area). We are ISO 9001 accredited and whilst that imposes some processes on what we do, we are not overly restrictive about the “procedure police”.

We make use of modern software change control systems – in our case we use Rational ClearCase. We also use a defect tracking system and expect everybody to use it, and stick to it.

We test carefully, and aggressively, and occasionally expediently. We try to do about 3 to 5 releases a year – which is a lot, and it keeps us on our toes.

The recruit would join a group of 4 other software developers and work with them on enhancements to existing software, development of new software as requirements come up, as well as general helping out, fixing defects and other things like that.

The position is located in Adelaide, a mere 5 minutes from the CBD.

What we really want:

- A passion for software.

- A good sense of humour to blend in with the other ratbags.

- Some prior experience is desirable – preferably in Java, C++ or Delphi. We aren’t ruling out graduates (but a graduate showing they have done some software development or something, for someone, in some capacity over and above studies will sure go down well.)

- An ability to communicate – both speaking and in writing. We don’t want Shakespeare, but an ability to explain yourself is essential.

So, if any of the 2 readers out there either fit the bill, and are looking for a job – OR if you know somebody who might be interested, please email me – the contact details are over on the right hand side panel…. A confidential chat can be arranged either during working hours or in the evenings.

Oh… and if you email… please attach a CV…


What’s this about “ratbags” ? We are all mature, responsible professionals ;-)

Sorry Darren, I need to back Wally on this one. “Ratbags” is the most concise and accurate description available in the English language.
