Subject: contractor work in Canberra
To: python-au at starship.python.net


I am the team lead of a small software team working for a Government 
agency in Canberra. In the coming weeks and months, we will be looking 
to recruit up to 2 Python contractors to work on a variety of systems. 
There will be a strong scientific background and context to the work.

Particular skills/experience we are interested in:

     * PyQt4 GUI development (ideally, although PyGtk/PyTK and other GUI 
exp will be valued)
     * Numpy, Scipy scientific libraries
     * Matplotlib and other graphics/charting toolkits
     * C programming - and interfacing C libraries to Python
     * UNIX, Solaris
     * Event-based/asynchronous programming
     * General exposure to database/SQL programming (no specific RDBMS)
     * Working in an Agile team environment!
     * Version control (>= Svn, Git)
     * Pylons web development (nice to have)
     * Perl programming (nice to have)
     * Maths/Science background, we have work that would interest Phd 
level and beyond (nice to have)

Competitive contractor rates available. The positions have not yet been 
advertised, however I would like to start identifying potential 
candidates through community channels first (this is where all the good 
people are, right?). The position is Canberra based, and working 
remotely will not be an option I'm afraid.

Interested? Drop me an email squiggly101 at gmail.com
