Hi Tony,

I am currently based in Perth, Western Australia and was wondering if you were intending to recruit from overseas if you cannot locate local PROIV programmers.

I am looking for a change of location and interested in a 12 or 24 month contract with views to a permanent if the job and company is suitable.

Thanks and regards,

Doug

hi Doug,

I am happy to recruit from anywhere:-) The main criteria is the quality of the people and we can always find room for good people. I am not really looking for a contractor but someone for the long term in whom we can invest in learning new skills. If you are still interested please email me your cv with any questions.

regards
tony

Will consider offshore staff working remotely? I live in Los Angeles and have extensive experience in Pro-IV with financial applications.

hi Damon,

Unfortunately due to the complexity of our system this is not suitable.

Any chance of being based in the UK working from home for a few days a week and working on site for the rest - i.e. not having to completly relocate.

Cheers

JJ

Hi JJ(??),

We are not geared up for this and due to the complexity of our system it would take someone a long time to get familiar enough to do this. Also there is a great deal of interaction between our developers rather than having every minute detail specified.

regards
Tony

Just thought I'd try to add my two penn'orth:

Swallow is a good company to work for, it develops a good and well-written product, and Tony's right when he describes the development team (around 10-12 when I was there) as having a high level of interaction - it couldn't function as well as it does in any other way. Small company, lots of interesting stuff going on, quite a bit of new technology (they're pretty pro-active in that regard).

So my advice if you're a good PRO-IV coder looking for a job in London, then it could well be worth a look.

I'd apply myself, but it's a long commute from Melbourne... and the kids would miss me (probably).

Cheers

Dan Shannon

Dan,

Thanks for the comments. With the recent serial murderers in the news perhaps one day you'll return from the land of Oz.

Regards
Tony

It's OK. Those murders were not "serial" (they did it for money). And besides it happened in South Australia, and nobody wants to live there anyway.... :D

Cleve

P.S That ought to wind up any "Crow Eater" reading this.... :rolleyes:

Now, the "Blue Mountain Backpacker Murders", that was serial.

Oh, and Tony, while we're on the subject on reasonably recent homicides, you really wouldn't want to visit your local GP in the UK when you're over the age of 50, just in case he decides three score and ten is not coming fast enough for you, and you need "some assistance".

OR

How about helping Mr West shore up the foundations of his house ?
