Programmer Needed For a Game Development Project

Programmer is responsible for writing Ruby on Rails code which will
interact with both MySQL and PostgreSQL databases, Memcached, and
paypal. Additional skills required are advanced Javascript, XHTML, and
CSS knowledge. You will be working with other programmers to finish the
project which is already in active development. Programmers with
experience working on high traffic websites (5+ million pages views per
day) is a plus. Job requires a minimum commitment of 30 hours per week.
Applicant must type faster than 80 wpm and be fluent in both written and
verbal english. AIM and Skype contacts are required. In closing, we
would like someone who is reliable, can work well in a group setting,
and doesn’t mind a challenge.

If you think you’re the right person for the job, email
[email protected] with a resume, AIM and Skype screen names.

Thank You.

… Seriously? You’re joking, right? What difference could that
possibly make? I can understand requiring certain skills, but typing
speed? For a programmer?

I’m sure I’m not the only one who would immediately pass on any job
posting/offer that required a certain typing speed.

No. Of course we’re not joking. Our company exists within a very
competitive market place. We are comitted to continuous improvement and
everyone knows “you can’t manage what you can’t measure.” And since
measurement is hard, and our managers are so very busy, we’ve decided to
measure the ‘low hanging fruit’ our wilting tape measures can reach.
Might
not want to stand too close to that apple ‘young fella’ :wink:

let me guess. you also measure your programmers by how many lines of
code they write…and it’s not an inverse relationship…

IBM used to pay by the kloc (1,000 lines of code)

as a contractor, the more lines of code you wrote, the more you got
paid…which is why bill gates went…WTF…the less memory my app uses
the
less I get paid??? screw that 10,000,000 lines of code it is…

just like a bricklayer,

80 wpm … what a maroon! LOL

i find it funny when recruiters call me and ask, so how many lines fo
code have you written?

like it doesnt matter if i write a hundred lines of an advanced
algorithm to solve some complex problem vs writing thousands of gets and
set statements. lol
