With Gallio Alpha 2 released, I'm about to jump into ultra-recruiting mode at Ingenio. I've got two spots to fill, one for a QA Automation Engineer and one for a Platform Tools Engineer. More on that in another post later. (Interested in working with me on MbUnit and other fun stuff? Let me know!)
Meanwhile I just came home from a lovely day trip to Sausalito with my lovely wife to find two things:
- 1. People seem to like Gallio.
- 2. An Apple recruiter sent me a nice and friendly email and voicemail regarding a potential position on the iPhone team.
That's right. Download the iPhone SDK, get a recruiter call! I have to give credit to Apple for this great idea. (And here I thought product registration information was mostly used for sales and demographics.)
Hey, I wonder if they'd let me work on porting .Net to the iPhone? Hmmm... Maybe bridge with Objective-C or Java and have a go at leveraging Gallio in this space for testing. Alright, that's perhaps a little far-fetched but I've seen stranger things.
This puts me in an interesting spot though. I can keep my great job at Ingenio leading a team and working on all sorts of platform infrastructure and Open-Source derivatives thereof, I can keep exploring the iPhone SDK with possible start-up ventures in mind, or I can develop the iPhone SDK and hopefully rub shoulders with some of the great designers at Apple.
Or I can try to do it all at once... Muah hah hah hah!
Edit: It turns out these events may have been coincidental. Still, this does give me some ideas for recruiting in the future...
