Standard Chartered, the bank where I work, is hiring – there are two vacancies for functional programmers in either London or Singapore. We’re looking for programmers to use Haskell full time (or more specifically, the Mu Haskell dialect), with the results used by many people, often the very next day. We write compilers, libraries, applications, web servers, DSLs and much more besides. All of the work is for use in house, and is usually geared towards finance, but no finance background is required. Standard Chartered has been using Haskell for over four years, and has hired lots of well-known Haskell programmers, including Lennart Augustsson, Ravi Nanavati, Malcolm Wallace, Roman Leshchinskiy and Don Stewart.
We’re looking for proper hackers – people who can quickly write top-quality code in response to what our users need. We have a large existing Haskell code base, which lots of people are continually developing, so experience with larger Haskell projects would be a plus. To apply, send a CV to neville.dwyer AT sc DOT com, and make sure the CV includes links to anything you’ve written on programming (Twitter, StackOverflow, blogs, academic papers) and links to any open-source software you may have written (github, hackage). If you have any more general questions feel free to email me.
