A few days ago I put up a job listing through a well-read job newsletter. Here is the posting in its entirety:
Description: Short-term/freelance developer job, writing an iPhone application from start to finish.
Do not send CV (your submission will be automatically disqualified) – send a cover letter describing your experience based upon the requirements below. This may lead to longer term work.
Requirements: MUST HAVE written at least one app which is publicly available.
Preference for C++, but Objective-C is alright.
Familiarity with Android an advantage.
Must know how to work with third party APIs.
Independent worker and good thinker.
And guess what people sent?
Others elaborated on their real-time Linux experience.
This was the first test, folks, to see if you can follow instructions.
By the way, the post is still open (although there are a few good candidates). Interested? You know what to do.
