Fellow Haskellers,

We are looking to hire a Haskell expert to work with us at Well-Typed as
a Haskell developer. This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is
passionate about Haskell and who is keen to improve and promote Haskell
in a professional context.

The role is quite general and could cover any of the projects and
activities that we are involved in as a company. The tasks may involve:

      * working on the Haskell compiler, libraries and tools;
      * Haskell application development;
      * working directly with clients to solve their problems;
      * teaching Haskell, and developing training materials.

At the moment, we are particularly hoping to find someone with an
interest in supporting the development and maintenance of GHC.
Therefore, some knowledge or interest in compiler internals, operating
systems, the foreign function interface (FFI), and/or deployment issues
would be welcome.

Well-Typed has a variety of clients. For some we do proprietary Haskell
development and consulting. For others, much of the work involves
open-source development and cooperating with the rest of the Haskell
community: the commercial, open-source and academic users.

Our ideal candidate has excellent knowledge of Haskell, whether from
industry, academia, or personal interest. Familiarity with other
languages, low-level programming, and good software engineering
practices are also useful. Good organisation and ability to manage your
own time, and reliably meet deadlines, is important. You should also
have good communication skills. Being interested or having experience in
teaching Haskell (or other technical topics) is a bonus. Experience of
consulting, or running a business, is also a bonus. You are likely to
have a bachelor's degree or higher in computer science or a related
field, although this isn't a requirement.

The offer is initially for a one-year full time contract. We are also
happy to receive applications for part-time work. The annual salary is
from GBP 34,800 or pro rata for part-time or flexible work. We also
operate a bonus scheme. We offer flexible hours and work from home.
Living in England is not required. We may be able to offer either
employment or sub-contracting, depending on the jurisdiction in which
you live.

If you are interested, please apply via info at well-typed.com. Tell us why
you are interested and why you would be a good fit for the job, and
attach your CV. Please also indicate how soon you might be able to
start. We are more than happy to answer informal enquiries. Contact
Duncan Coutts, Ian Lynagh or Andres Löh for further information, either
by email or IRC.

To ensure we can properly consider your application, please get it to us
by July 25th, 2013, though we may be able to consider applications
received later.
