Job Description

TIBCO Software Inc. currently has openings for two software engineers to work on the TIBCO General Interface product. TIBCO General Interface is a mature AJAX software development platform with an established customer base and real-world deployment. We have been in market for over four years and were recently awarded the 2006 Technology of the Year Award, by IDG’s InfoWorld as the “Best AJAX Toolkit”. This is a high profile product, both within TIBCO and in the enterprise software market as whole.

Interested candidates should expect to be challenged and will be encouraged to immediately assume responsibility for portions of the platform.

Above all we are looking for talented and motivated individuals with great problem solving skills and an understanding of software engineering fundamentals. A four year degree in a technical subject, such as CS or EE, is preferred, although not a requirement. In addition to entrepreneurial spirit, maturity and the ability to work successfully in a small team environment, the successful candidate will be able to discuss specific historical success in the most of the following areas:

  • excellent problem solving skills
  • a four year degree in a technical subject or equivalent work experience
  • excellent understanding of object-oriented software engineering principles
  • strong experience with a scripting language, preferably ECMA based, such as JavaScript, ActionScript, etc.
  • experience working with XML and XSLT
  • experience developing and deploying web applications with Perl/mod_perl, ASP, JSP/J2EE, etc.
  • understanding of Web Services, including WSDL, SOAP, and Schema
  • experience with CSS, DHTML, and cross-browser compatibility issues

The two positions that are open are:

  1. A recent college graduate with at least a four-year degree in a technical subject and 0-2 years of work experience or project experience in a related space. The position is open to any applicant demonstrating understanding of software fundamentals and the ability to learn quickly and expressing interest in AJAX and browser technology.
  2. A mid-level engineer with around 5 years of related work experience plus a related four-year degree or equivalent additional work experience.
