My name is Mitsu Hadeishi. I’m looking for an experienced Software Engineer with an interest in advanced GUI development to join our team.

Over the last fifteen years, I’ve led a series of engineering teams to design and implement innovative, successful software products. My past projects have included complex virtual communities, advanced multimedia development platforms, object-oriented integrated development environments, websites, and interactive video stories built with a custom domain-specific language. In addition to software architecture and development, my background and interests include AI, art, meditation, film, and philosophy.

Now, as the VP of Engineering for Temboo Inc., I’ve assembled a group of innovators and gifted problem-solvers to join me in creating and extending a revolutionary new kind of technology.

Our team currently includes a Network Architect who was responsible for the infrastructure systems behind Intuit’s online applications; a Project Manager who taught Creative Writing at NYU, and developers who have played key roles at IBM, Limewire, and major open-source projects like ANTLR.

Temboo is a young, cutting-edge New York company. We have developed a new software model which uses a simple, intuitive graphical interface to allow non-programmers to quickly build complex workflows and applications comprised of disparate interacting components such as databases, web services, and web applications. By allowing businesses to focus on what their information systems should do, instead of worrying about how to do it, our technology paves the way for a new paradigm of software development. We have versions of our product currently live; some of our first customers are leading financial institutions.

We are looking for a Software Engineer with experience developing complex interfaces, either on the desktop or using AJAX technologies. This person will play a key role in designing and building the tools that our customers use to interact with the Temboo system.

Ideal candidates will possess the following traits/skills:
• Experience with a range of front-end development technologies
• Intuitive grasp of OO design patterns and killer software architecture instincts
• Solid knowledge of at least one of the following: Python, Qt, Swing/SWT, or MFC
• Understanding of good user interface design principles
• Excellent communication and organizational skills
• Enjoys working in a high-energy environment with a small, talented team

Additional bonus points for candidates with:

• Familiarity with agile methods like XP and test-driven development
• Experience developing games
• Experience developing tools that use visual metaphors
• Experience developing applications with Flash and/or AJAX
• Experience working with information architects or interaction designers
• Interests outside of work (in your cover letter, please tell us what they are!)
• Sense of humor

Our unique company culture promotes individual contribution, innovation, excellence, and the belief that work should also be fun. We offer competitive compensation, flexible working hours, a casual office environment, and respect for individual contribution and autonomy. We’re looking for people who have interests outside of work as well (please mention some of these in your cover letter if you like).

Does this sound like you? If so, there may be a place for you at Temboo. Candidates outside the New York area will also be considered for employment on a remote basis, or for relocation to NYC (where everyone should experience living for at least part of their lives).
