Interesting job opportunity in Oxford

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

It’s nice to hear that some companies are growing and hiring, despite the current economic troubles. I know Oege de Moor since my time as a Ph.D. student, working in mathematical techniques for program construction. Oege is an extremely smart guy and a positive person. So here is the message I got from him last week:

Semmle is taking off fast, and we urgently need more top-notch software design engineers to join. The main criterion is that they’re smart and love building great software. Skills that are immediately relevant include:

  • experts in the C and C++ language spec (for static analyses)
  • visualisation tools (like yGraph)
  • all forms of declarative programming

.. but we expect people who work with us to pick these up in their stride.

Do you know anyone suitable who might like to join Semmle as a student intern, as a consultant or as a full-time engineer? Then please let me know, or pass on this message.
