    I am a UK-based recruiter working on behalf of a client located in the
    South of France.

    I have 4 vacancies for experienced Realtime Embedded C SW engineers
    with either ARM7 / 9 or 11 processor experience - to work on long-term
    contract assignments (6 or 12 months available initially). This is full
    lifecycle work - you will be involved in design, development through to
    integration and test of my clients HW platform. This is a highly
    technical role and will only suit engineers with a minimum of 5 yrs
    development / ARM processor experience. Experience of the Nucleus OS is
    also beneficial.

    The client offices have views of the Alps, The Mediterranean and Monte
    Carlo - and a nice climate.

    Suitable candidates will need to be available to start work within 4
    weeks of accepting an offer. Payment will be made in Euros and will be
    either a daily / hourly rate.

    For further information - please email me in the first instance,
    details below.

    Many thanks

    If it's in C, why do you need specific ARM experience? Aren't they
    willing to wait the short time it takes to get to know the whimsies of
    the specific processor?
    That is far more relevant.
    So it's impossibly expensive to live there...
    So why plaster it all over Usenet?

    In answer to your comments below:
    These are contract roles so the client decides the parameters of the
    role. They want EMB C experience AND engineers who have worked
    specifically with and are familiar with ARM processors. Why should they
    wait for someone to get upto speed?
    It isn't particularly expensive to be based there. Sure rental property
    is more difficult to come by in the summer months, but not at this time
    of year.
    Disclaimer: ok I take your point, it is part of my electronic signature
    Are you interested?

  4. It does make some sense, especially for low level debugging.
    Companies don't really want to pay to train up paid-by-the-hour
    consultants in something new, if they don't need to.

    And this is the point, they don't need to. Asking for ARM
    experience is actually something which is reasonably achievable.

    I applied for a job before Xmas working on UI devices for an
    MP3 player with no requirement to work on the multimedia
    section. Despite having (recently) worked on every UI driver
    in a mobile phone I got rejected with "No MP3 experience" -
    absolutely stupid IMHO.
    Not necessarily for low level drivers. The drivers I'm currently
    writing have no direct interaction with the OS at all. I, obviously,
    need my code to be OS safe in case it is swapped out (and
    re-entered from somewhere else) but I don't actually use the
    OS services myself.
    I have (had) that concern :-(
    He's been suitably chastised, - he said "he didn't know
    he wasn't supposed to do this"

    I suspect that he is desperate, and he seems to have a fussy
    customer. I have all of the stated must haves and many of
    the nice-to-haves that he didn't put in his post (I know who
    the client is and what it is they are doing).

    So I took this opportunity to see how my application was
    going and he got back to me with "it seems that the client has
    rejected you" - before interview.

    Um, without wishing to claim any level of ability on my
    part, I'm damned sure that he's going to have to work
    really hard to find a better match on paper. Oh well,
    I didn't really want to live in Sophia Aniwhateveritiscalled.

    Would these devices end up above our heads in something weighing hundreds of
    tonnes? A380??

    I am new to this newsgroup and I do not understand why the esteemed
    contributors cannot tell the name of the culprit. (I myself have
    background in scientific research.)
