Professional music group is seeking a software engineer with a deep passion for music to join them in the studio (and on the road) developing custom plug-in software. The right candidate will be a highly motivated self starter, excellent problem solver and be able to work extended and irregular hours when in the studio (and on the road).


• 3-5 years of professional experience writing plug-ins for Steinberg
Cubase, Digidesign Pro Tools, and other music creation software
including Propellerhead Reason/Record.
• Design and implementation experience making software accessible for
people with disabilities a major plus;

• Familiarity with Max OS X, and plugin programming required
• Familiarity with C++ and/or Objective C a major plus
• Computer Science or Equivalent degree from a top university
• The candidate should provide at least three professional references.

Final employment will be dependent on the candidate passing a background check. This is a full time, salaried position with a Marketplace competitive compensation package, compensation is dependent on experience.

Is this for real? :?
A "music group" that can provide a full compensation package, and who apparently has some really cliche/sterile HR people? Plus, nothing like working extended/irregular hours while salaried. I should know, I'm a developer myself, and I've done it - it sucks.

Forgive my skepticism. :shrug:
If anyone finds out who this is, or the reality of it, I'd be curious. This is new to me.

Good luck in finding someone to fit those requirements.
If someone does fit those requirements, they would already have a great job.
Without a "rock star" to annoy them.

One post. Hmm.

Sending confidential data to some anonymous gmail address ?
If this doesn't smell like some absurd form of data mining I don't know what does.

Do your homework first :dog:
Computer Science or Equivalent degree from a top university
That rules out many of the best persons for the job :shrug:

Man, could you guys be more negative?

Obviously, the job is not a job, but a career. Chris Rock did a nice bit on the difference. But there are plenty of great gigs that require that you put in a lot of extra effort. Most professionals do. I have yet to meet a doctor/lawyer/executive that works a 'regular' 35-40 hour work week despite only being paid a straight salary.

And the "only one post" wouldn't bother me either. If I had a professional contact that was looking for someone with this skill set, KVR would be on my short list of places to ask. You guys should be flattered, not miffed.

If it is, somehow, a scam, I don't see it. Data miners wouldn't be THAT exclusive. And if you get to the interview stage and the situation isn't right, don't take the job. At least that's how it works out here in the real world.

Cheers

So you would trust someone asking for a business contract plus private informations who gives you an anonymous email address as the only personal information ? Well, good luck to you then.

Doesn't the lack of a phone or fax number in the message, kind of render that remark useless? Nice touch though ;)

true but who needs a touring plugin developer?

fix bugs on stage? have a indy-tech guy on board just for fun?


- a crude data miner?
- a plan to steal source code ("nice references, but we need to see the inner workings"..)?
- something else?

Has to be a scam of some kind.

Only propheads can write reason plugins if I am not mistaken. And what's the situation with protools now a days?

And accessibility for the disabled?

BUT, familiarity with C++ and objective C is just a major plus, not an absolute requirement?

A real ad would probably be structured the other way:
* Has to know C++ like your own arse. 3 years pro work minimum.
* Has to know audio DSP.
* The more frameworks and apps you've worked with the better. VST and Digidesign are the minimum.
* Familiarity with audio/video editing apps is a plus.
