Consultant Engineers with ARM processor experience required

I am a UK-based recruiter working on behalf of a client located in the South of France.

I have 4 vacancies for experienced Realtime Embedded C SW engineers with either ARM7 / 9 or 11 processor experience - to work on long-term contract assignments (6 or 12 months available initially). This is full lifecycle work - you will be involved in design, development through to integration and test of my clients HW platform. This is a highly technical role and will only suit engineers with a minimum of 5 yrs development / ARM processor experience. Experience of the Nucleus OS is also beneficial.

The client offices have views of the Alps, The Mediterranean and Monte Carlo - and a nice climate.

Suitable candidates will need to be available to start work within 4 weeks of accepting an offer. Payment will be made in Euros and will be either a daily / hourly rate.

For further information - please email me in the first instance, details below.

Many thanks

If it's in C, why do you need specific ARM experience? Aren't they willing to wait the short time it takes to get to know the whimsies of the specific processor?

That is far more relevant.

So it's impossibly expensive to live there...

So why plaster it all over Usenet?

It does make some sense, especially for low level debugging. Companies don't really want to pay to train up paid-by-the-hour consultants in something new, if they don't need to.

And this is the point, they don't need to. Asking for ARM experience is actually something which is reasonably achievable.

I applied for a job before Xmas working on UI devices for an MP3 player with no requirement to work on the multimedia section. Despite having (recently) worked on every UI driver in a mobile phone I got rejected with "No MP3 experience" - absolutely stupid IMHO.

Not necessarily for low level drivers. The drivers I'm currently writing have no direct interaction with the OS at all. I, obviously, need my code to be OS safe in case it is swapped out (and re-entered from somewhere else) but I don't actually use the OS services myself.

I have (had) that concern :-(

He's been suitably chastised, - he said "he didn't know he wasn't supposed to do this"

I suspect that he is desperate, and he seems to have a fussy customer. I have all of the stated must haves and many of the nice-to-haves that he didn't put in his post (I know who the client is and what it is they are doing).

So I took this opportunity to see how my application was going and he got back to me with "it seems that the client has rejected you" - before interview.

Um, without wishing to claim any level of ability on my part, I'm damned sure that he's going to have to work really hard to find a better match on paper. Oh well, I didn't really want to live in Sophia Aniwhateveritiscalled.

Let me guess, it is Grenoble and the devices all start with AT9x An Schwob

The Arm's in a custom SOC.

Would these devices end up above our heads in something weighing hundreds of tonnes? A380??

I am new to this newsgroup and I do not understand why the esteemed contributors cannot tell the name of the culprit. (I myself have background in scientific research.)
