Hiring for new super-secret project

Well, I guess it’s not so super-secret anymore now but these last few months, I’ve been transitioning from ASP.NET Ajax to a new project that aims at helping ASP.NET communities build Open Source applications on ASP.NET. It’s a lot of fun and the good news is that you can join in. We are hiring a senior developer:


Please mention me (Bertrand Le Roy, bleroy at Microsoft) as the referral if you apply. ;)

I gather you're only hiring US based devs, Australia might be a long commute :P

I'd apply otherwise ;)

Applied! This sounds like my kind of gig, as I've got a million ideas around forums, photos and other such tools the PHP guys get to use, and doing it as one guy is hard. Plus it has an evangelism angle to it, which I'd be into.

You can always apply even if not in the US. It's always harder but not impossible.

Just so you know careers.microsoft.com is horrendously slow, to the point of being unusable.

I tried applying, but I have to create a resume. After entering the title of the resume and clicking "Next", I get the error:

"Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerParserErrorException: The message received from the server could not be parsed. Common causes for this error are when the response is modified by calls to Response.Write(), response filters, HttpModules, or server trace is enabled."

The site is also very, very slow. When would be a good time to try again?

All of you who are experiencing problems with the careers site, don't let that stop you. You can send me e-mail instead, we'll get you in the system. Apologies about the inconvenience.

If Microsoft wants to compete the LAMP stack please first resolve hosting availability problems.

The price is no barrier here but accesibility, aspecialy here in Europe(Poland) it is difficult to find windows hosting at desired location. If I just could lease Windows server let's say per quarter basis (paying online price that hosting providers pay) and install it on my machine without all this certification/partnership crap it would be much much much easier for all of us to develop, deploy and sell asp.net solutions .

I would also like to apply for Microsoft.

Can you please tell me, whether passing Microsoft Certification Exam will get me any benefit?
