Work for PayPal

Steve Ganz works at PayPal when he’s not playing frisbee golf. He reached out to me by email to help get the word out on a job posting. He wants to get hold of a good DOM Scripter before they’re all snapped up by Yahoo:

The designers are designing and the developers are developing. It’s all about rich user interaction now. There is some cool stuff on the horizon, but we’re missing that key player. Someone to come in and build a scalable, unobtrusive JavaScript architecture.

This sounds like it could be fun in a challenging kind of way:

I’m not going to tell you this is going to be easy. Quite the contrary. This promises to be one of the most challenging, if not the most challenging experiences of one’s career.

Here’s Steve’s blog post where you can find all the details on applying for the job. If you know your JavaScript, you’re looking for work, and you’re up to the challenge, give it a whirl.

FYI: Yahoo! is still looking for JavaScript developers ;)

Awww come on, Dustin. We’re just asking for one! Throw us a frickin’ bone here, man. You…you…JavaScript expert hogs, you! ;-)

Thanks for the help, Jeremy.

Steve, I have indeed mentioned the Paypal job to some others. I’d still like to help a brotha out. Re: Google? I would like to know who their experts are. They do a good job of keeping names anonymous.

I believe that in some cases, working for the big players isn’t always a career advance. Many ambitious developers find their way as freelancers.
