IT company with position available for software developer in Southern 
Suburbs area. This is an EQUAL OPPORTUNITY position, all races, all 
genders welcome.

We are a Linux technology development company. If you are not an avid 
Linux user and truly over the edge passionate about Linux & opensource, 
please, move onto the next job offer as this is not for you. :)

Our programmers are challenged working with new technologies for which 
no documentation, training or information exists.

We have two main focuses. 1) We design and develop new technologies 
and/or combine other new technologies to form leading opensource 
alternatives to commercial solutions. 2) We develop software solutions 
for large corporates and government which solve specific issues they 
have (normal software development).

Majority of the work we do comprises of Perl, PHP and Bash scripting. 
Our choice in database is MySQL, although all of our opensouces packages 
use abstraction layers like PDO & DBD and must function on Oracle, 
MySQL, PostgreSQL & SQLite. We also develop in C and use languages such 
as javascript for certain UI tasks. Most of our opensource software is 
server-side, but alot of our new projects are web based 
integrations/customizations. We make use of Git extensively, with all 
code checkins going to our review system for rigorous compliance checks.

Most of our clients and target clients are medium-large companies or 
government institutions.
