Hi all; my new startup uses XML plumbing but isn't all that XML-oriented;
I'm posting the jobs here anyhow just because there's a chance I'll know
anyone who might express interest. -Tim
Antarcti.ca Systems Inc. is a venture-backed Vancouver-based startup which 
is building a general-purpose network mapping and visualization platform.  
Antarcti.ca's founder & CEO is Tim Bray, who co-founded Open Text 
(NASDAQ:OTEX) in 1989 and helped invent XML in 1996-98.

The jobs will have the usual VC-financed Internet startup flavour:
ridiculously high intensity, decent salaries, juicy stock options (the
earlier the juicier), and a chance to change the fabric of the net.  The
founding partners are fortysomething and have run some companies before,
so we think we'll be a bit better-organized than your average Internet

What we're looking for:

Client Development
 Our client software operates in 2 and 3 dimensions; it talks to our 
 database engine via XML over HTTP.  The database is already running.
 We need graphically gifted and imaginative people who can imagine 
 what the future looks like and are on top of enough 2D and 3D
 technology that they can build what they can imagine, and get it to 
 run on the average desktop.

Business Development/Product Management
 We have an immense amount of work to do in positioning our offering so
 that it provides a pleasant and productive user experience, and then
 in getting the word out to the first wave of prospective users.  We
 need people who understand positioning, marketing, and the Web.

Server-side Domain Leads
 The back-end software includes an SQL database (MySQL for now, but 
 that's not carved in stone), a monster robot implemented in perl, and 
 a superoptimized run-time engine implemented as an Apache module in C;
 (in-memory database, no SQL at runtime!).  We need people to be 
 development leads in each of these areas.  The use of SQL is not very 
 advanced; the Apache module uses basic interfaces; the robot does not 
 use perl exotica, so you don't have to be an SQL, Apache, or perl god 
 to qualify.  We are however going to be driving a very public website 
 so we need expertise in the production of robust and very very fast 

Web Site Operations
 In the near future, we'll be rolling out a monster 7/24 gigahit-capable 
 website; we're going to need a Director of Operations who's been 
 around this track before.
