START YOUR CAREER INTENTIONALLY
Intentional Software knows your first career move is your most important. We are seeking applications for the August 2014 ALPHA Class, a small group of unique and talented software engineers. This landmark class of new graduates will join Intentional Software located in Bellevue, outside Seattle, WA. You will work in a small team of exceptional software engineers building groundbreaking knowledge processing technology that will transform how software is used and developed.
WHO ARE WE
Intentional Software (ISC) is the software development company founded by Charles Simonyi, former Chief Architect of Microsoft and arguably the most successful programmer in the world. As chief designer for Word and Excel he changed how people use computers. And now he needs your help changing how knowledge work is done in the future.
At ISC we have pursued the concept of “intentional software” that captures the intentions and knowledge of the users (domain) and displays it in a variety of visual projections in a structured editing environment. We are pioneering the world’s leading language workbench technology and are initially applying it to create domain specific knowledge intensive workbenches for clients with high value problems that no-one else can solve.
Productivity applications in the workplace are rapidly moving over to mobile devices with touch interfaces or to rich, interactive HTML5 experiences on the web. One of the key challenges people face is how to organize their time, and one of the foremost experts in this field is David Allen, creator of “Getting Things Done (GTD)”. Intentional Software Corporation has partnered with David Allen to create applications for mobile devices and web users that will make them more productive and help them regain control of their time. This is your chance to get involved at a very early stage in this exciting new project.
You’ll get to work with the latest web and mobile technologies in a fast-paced, agile environment. As an individual you are an expert in at least one layer of the technology stack, but as a team player you are willing to learn how the whole system works and to work across layers to deliver new features. You are an innovator and enjoy working on early stage projects, and can come up with creative ways to solve hard problems. You are passionate about software development and learn new technologies quickly. You’ve been successful in the past delivering key technology into one or more large-scale, public web sites or cloud-backed mobile applications and you are ready for a new challenge.
