NRIA RMoD is looking for a full-time engineer for helping with Pharo development. As researchers, we need a really great system to explore new ideas with. The job of the engineer is to help us by improving the infrastructure we use for our work.
What this of course means is that it's kind of a cool job: work in a research lab, but no paper writing, no teaching, no administration. In addition:
- live in France (one hour from Paris, 1h20 from London, 35 min from Brussels) - try a lot of good beers (our office is just 10km from the border to Belgium) - french food - code all the day in Smalltalk and a bit of C
From what the DHR services told us, the salary will depend on years of expertise and diplomas. We can think that 2700 Euros (before final taxes) should be a good working number for a candidate of the experience we are looking for. In France the employer pays already social security and pension. So the salary already includes lots (and lots) of deductions compared to e.g. a german brutto salary. Holidays: 45 days/year.
Lille is an active city but not expensive (lots of students...), centrally located, with good connections by train to everywhere (including Paris CDG and Brussels airports).
The job will be to continue making Pharo better:
- better tools - better network support - better compiler infrastructure - improve the VM - help with day-to-day bug fixing and constant improvement
Therefore we are looking for a candidate with some years of Smalltalk (possible Pharo/Squeak)
