  • You can take old code and channel any internal grumbling about how it’ s not designed well into motivation to make it better.
  • Writing code that’ s multi-platform (Linux, Solaris, and Windows) seems like a good thing to you rather than a nuisance, and you’ re comfortable picking up whatever internal or open source libraries are needed to help you do it.

I have worked with large corporations such as DigitalGlobe, GeoEye, TAC Worldwide and RCM Technologies as well as several startups such as CleverSource, SPADAC, TechWizards and DTRI, and that has given me a broad perspective of the different hiring processes and a wide range of experiences to draw from.
