Somewhat in response to the original post about Haskell engineers I, II
and III. This confirms the remark that Haskell experience is now being
appreciated, though not (yet) used (very much). Steven Grant, recruiter
from Google, asked me to bring to his attention anyone who might be
suitable, so that's what I'm doing.

We are currently aggressively recruiting for a large number of engineers
in EMEA. I spotted your extensive open source experience and was
particularily interested to see you have worked with Haskell. I am not
looking for a Haskell developer but more interested in people that have
worked in exotic languages such as Haskell or Erlang or Scheme.

The roles we have are heavily open sourced based and will be mainly
working with Python, C, Linux, shell etc and are based in Dublin, London
or Zurich.

If you have any interest in discussing these further, drop me an email
to stevengrant at google.com and we can discuss.

The job specs are below.


The roles are within a very specialist team within Google.
They are a hybrid type role and are responsible for making our
products reliable scalable and more efficient.

Get in touch with Steven:

European IT Staffing
Phone: +353 1 543 5083
Google Ireland Ltd., Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland

I think this is interesting even to those who are not looking for a job
right now, since it shows the current mind-set regarding Haskell, at a
major and leading IT company. 

Best Regards,
