After five years, Leostream is finally got a careers page with [EDIT: some] content on it. The times, they are a-changin’!

If you’re a self-motivated developer interested in working in the virtualization market (which is ridiculously hot right now), please consider sending your resume to Leostream. You’ll find all the particulars on the company web site, but I can list some of the things we’re looking for in an engineer:

  • C++ or Perl. These are the two primary development languages we use. C++ for Windows dev and Perl for Linux dev. Java is also a nice to have.
  • You need to understand socket programming and networking cold. I don’t care if you can actually resolve the address space of a given netmask, but you should know what a netmask is.
  • You should have some experience with RPC mechanisms and XML-RPC/SOAP in particular.
  • At least understand what a virtual machine is. If I said, “what’s a VMX file”, you should know that it’s the VMware config file for virtual machines. If I said “VHD”, you should think of the MSVS/Xen virtual disk format.
  • You have to be self-directed. Leostream is growing fast and you’ll need to puzzle out a lot of details for yourself. Of course, that’s not to say there’s no support for new developers. But, you’ll need to keep your own task list up to date. :-D
  • Tolerance for start-ups. Leostream does not have the amenities of larger companies. If that’s important to you, you’ll need to look elsewhere.

Also note that I’m not the hiring manager. Please do not send your resumes to me.
