The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Your job will be maintaining the current code base and implementing new

Q-go's core technology is implemented in C++ using STL and Boost libraries.
Linux is used as a main development environment with shell scripts for
automated building, integration and testing.

Culture
The culture within Q-go is young, open and informal. We are working hard
and results matter. Taking responsibility is important. Q-go is ambitious
('we are going to conquer the world!') and optimistic ('The bottle is half
full!'). Not just thinking, but making it happen!

* At least 5 years experience in the C/C++ work field
* Experience in developing large (preferably web-based) software systems
* At least 2 years experience with Linux/Unix, including scripting
(Python/Bash/Perl/Ruby)
* Affinity with Test-Driven Development

Skills

* Independent, creative and result oriented
* Good communication skills in English required; fluency in Dutch
preferred but not required.
* Experience in the computational linguistic work field is a plus
