F# Job Opportunity

From: Richard M.
Sent on: Thursday, August 25, 2011 3:16 PM

The following message is from Amanda Laucher, she's looking for F# programmers to hire. The company is called Measured Progress and is a not-for-profit in the education domain. The work for this role involves translating the psychometric algorithms into something that can add business value (integrating into out test construction, and online test delivery products). The education industry is very backward and behind in technology so some of our legacy systems are pretty bad. We're in the process of rewriting those systems with the .NET stack and need some really smart folks to help. Automating some of the Psychometricians work can give our company a huge competitive advantage and help to better educational systems in the states and worldwide.  My boss, the CIO, is new to the organization and is making huge strides in bringing in very forward thinking individuals to help make some of these systems cutting edge. He's very forward thinking himself and open to any new innovative ideas we can bring. He's also very interested in open source and how we can add value and innovation to the industry.  I can talk more about the role and the company if you know someone who is interested. They have come up one of their traditional job descriptions that is very generic. It doesn't really fit what I am looking for which is someone interested in playing with large amounts of  data, shaving time off of algorithm speeds, and making the end user experience (mostly students) as painless as possible. The ideal person will bring to the table knowledge of or at least interest in functional languages and alternative (nosql) data storage as well as a passion for bleeding edge technology. 

Contact me if you're interested and I'll get you in contact with her.

Cheers!
-Rick
