    One of our #ALM SEs either quit quickly or was let go.

    If anyone would be interested in such a position, let me know, and you can get in before the public listing. I suspect you'd need to work out of the #Minneapolis #Minnesota office.

    a little intimidating lol

    McClane at 2019-01-04T18:50:16Z

    I can't say about that division in particular, but when I got my job they were asking for "git" experience. My experience was limited to using GitHub and GitLab for looking at code and the occasional git clone. I had done no real versioning, because I am not a developer. 

    "Knowledge of HDF5" might just mean do you know wtf that is. I don't! Of course, I'd look that up before an interview lol.

    But yeah, that division makes software that does code analysis, so they probably need good developers.

    My apologies. Right now I've been more worried about keeping an eye on if/when the bureau's contingency plan changes due to the partial government shutdown. I've also been fielding calls from colleagues who are also stuck at home during this lockout. Right now we're on 2 hour recall and the only contact from work is through a "Dead Hand" system.
