Hi everyone!

The company that my wife works for is looking for some rather specialized software developers and was wondering if any of you (or anyone you know) are interested.

FYI: This is a small company located in Waterloo (by the Volkswagen dealer on Weber in case you care), and most of the staff have PHD's or Master's.

Here are the details:
