Subject: [IronPython] Dynamic Language Position on the CLR team at Microsoft

> You may have noticed that I've been really bad about participating in this
> mailing list and making new releases of IronPython since I joined 
> Microsoft
> two months ago.  A big part of my problem has been that there are a TON of
> interesting things going on around this company that touch on the dynamic
> language space.  All of these distractions have left me without the time 
> to
> spend working directly with this important community.
> The good news is that I now get to hire another member to join the CLR 
> team
> working full-time on dynamic languages.  Having another person working on
> this project should give us enough time to really make an impact on this
> exciting space -- and not incidentally will give both of us the time to

> -------------------------------
> Make the Common Language Runtime (CLR) an outstanding platform for dynamic
> languages and environments. You will be a key developer working on the CLR
> managed services team. Your first task will be to help finish the
> implementation of Python for the CLR (see http://ironpython.com/) so that 
> we
> can show other developers how a high-performance production-quality 
> dynamic
> language is implemented for this platform. Future work will likely involve
> addressing difficult implementation challenges for other dynamic languages
> and environments. A central part of this job will be working with the
> developer community. You will work both with developers who are trying to
> use dynamic languages on the CLR and those who are trying to develop 
> dynamic
> languages for this platform. You will also work to identify and implement
> improvements to the CLR to enable us to provide the best possible 
> experience
> for dynamic languages in the future.
> We're looking for a talented developer with exceptional programming 
> ability
> and great communication skills. It's a plus if you have expertise in
> compiler implementation, reflection, VM implementation and/or dynamic
> languages. Applicants should have at least 4 years experience in software
> development and a BS/MS in computer science or related field.
