Mark Logic Engineering

Volume 13, Issue 11; 06 Apr 2010; last modified 08 Oct 2010

I had a lot of fun last week hanging out with my new colleagues in engineering. Not that you should care. The part you should care about is: we're hiring.

As I mentioned a month or so ago, I've changed jobs inside Mark Logic. I've moved from a pre-sales/consulting field position in the media team to the application services team in engineering. The short version of the story about how this happened is that Micah Dubinko, whom most of my regular readers will certainly know, made a compelling offer: a chance to work with a great team, a chance to build cool stuff, and a better opportunity, really, to make a lasting difference for the company and our customers. I think. (But I still love our media peeps and I'll always be a “publishing guy”.)

It's been more than a decade since I spent a week just hanging out with engineers in the office. That is a lot of fun. Not “I'm ready to relocate” fun, I'm going to continue to be a full-time work-from-homer, but still fun and stimulating.

So I had fun (yay me!), but that's not really the point. The point is that you can have fun too! If you're smart and motivated and want to work on an amazing product with the largest collection of uniformly great people I've ever met, we should talk.

I can tell you that my group is looking for at least two people. And, lest you think working on MarkLogic Server is all behind-the-scenes heavy coding, we'd particularly like to talk to someone with the sort of UI/JavaScript/HTML experience that can really make an application shine. Oh, and if you really love to be behind-the-scenes doing heavy coding on a honking big, screaming fast, hugely scalable powerhouse, we can hook you up there too! And in the field, if that's your thing. I don't know all the details, but I can put you in touch with the folks who do.

Anyway, the short story is, I'm having the best time and I like to share. There's plenty of room to join in the fun! If you're interested, get in touch.
