Hope nobody minds a job offer.....
We have developed an application for the insurance market that is based on:
wxPython for the GUI twisted pb as network layer certainly python :-) reportlab/OpenOffice/pyUno for printing zope/plone as alternative web interface. the database backend is postgresql.
We're currently in the process of setting up a company to market this software. The software targets a niche market in the insurance business and has been in production for over 3 years with a limited number of clients. We're looking for developers, preferably in the greater San Francisco Bay Area but not a necessity, who have as much experience as possible in any/all of the above technologies. We have certain projects that only need partial knowledge (I'm not disclosing specifics here, I much rather list requirements for the different projects):
1) Solely Plone based development. This basically only requires Plone and postgresql experience.
2) The printing backend needs work. Anyone with good XSLT/RML experience is welcome to apply. Intention is to write a Open Document Format to RML exporter for OpenOffice. We will contribute the exporter back to the community which would benefit the OpenOffice and the reportlab projects.
3) Someone with a solid knowledge of twisted pb (not yet new pb) and wxPython experience. There are technical obstacles to the "twisted/wxPython"-marriage and you should be aware of them.
4) anyone with an open mind and good python experience.
SQL database knowledge is pretty much a must for all of the above. We're currently using postgresql, but Oracle and DB2 are not out of the question.
If you have commercial insurance knowledge it's even better, but I rather focus on programming skills than insurance knowledge - since the later is much easier to acquire.
All of the above projects have the potential to turn into a lucrative permanent occupation. Salary and terms are negotiable. There will be several programmers involved, thus team- and communication skills are a plus.
If you're interested please drop me an email.
