Full-time Liquidware Android hacker

at Liquidware in Boston

Hello! This is Matt from Liquidware, and this job posting site is a great idea, thanks Limor.

I'm stepping up my open source hacking exploits on the Liquidware Antipasto blog into a whole new realm of activity, and I'm looking for a fellow hacker and developer who has experience programming Android GUI's. Obviously everything and anything coded for a Liquidware or Antipasto project will get open sourced, and there are a number of applications and ideas for projects I have that I'd love to work on.

A number of companies are asking for Liquidware's help developing handheld apps, and I'd like to code them in Android. The work is part time for now, and probably perfect for a college, graduate, recent graduate, or programmer looking for extra work on the side.

The Role
-Must be driven to break things, hack things, and destroy and recreate
-Experience with C, but mostly with Java/C++ GUI framework with Android
-1-2 friends at Google nice to have in case it gets ugly and we need help
-Must have a full disdain for status quo, distrust of management
-High energy, frequently willing to code late into the night since that's when the rest of the team works

-Dumpster diving and/or lock picking experience at least once ideal, if not it will be part of the on-site cultural training
-Some experience with the Android sensor library API
-Comfort compiling code into APK formats
-At least one or two programming algorithms courses at a place of higher education

What you'll get
-A part time salary to start
-24-7 access card to the Liquidware lab and facility if you're in the area
-Gadgets, modules, components
-Security clearance
-A lot of opportunities to ask, "what the heck is that?" if you see me working on something funky

Liquidware has been called many things over the years, and intense group of hackers is definitely one of them. Liquidware is a flat organization, with no management, no TPS reports, just engineers and hackers. We don't have a CEO, we don't believe in investors, and as a result we run very lean and agile. We do contract work for hedge funds, the department of defense, and semiconductor companies - but that just pays the bills in between hacker exploits!

To apply for this position, please send in a snippet of code you're proud of that runs on Android, a few screenshots of an application you've coded, and a note to: inthebitz at gmail.
