Hi Guys,

Basic responsabilities are something like this:

(1) Administration of JGO and the JGO forums.
(2) Administration of the JGO projects
(3) Content management, creation and update for JGO
(4) Light developer support.  (touchpoint for JGO to Sun)
(5) Community evanglism
(6) CoreAPI evnagelism
(7) tech support for community projects.

The listing isn't a great job desctription (hiring listing is done through corporate which has a bit of a problem grokking what we do), but its here...

Well, keep an eye on it. No promises but we havent filled it yet.

Also, frankly, Sun takes a fair bit of time typically to complete the hiring process. You COULD submit a resume now with a cover letter that explains you aren't available until the end of the year.  The timing might work out fine.

This could be an ideal job for Kev. :-)
I think Jeff's advice sounds nice, too.
Good luck, Kev!

So what' s the pay range for a position of that level?

Pay at Sun is based on how youa re "categorized" as an employe, not directly  on the job you do.
Generally the more industry experience you have, and  to some degree the higher your previous salery history,  before you come to Sun the higher your initial categorization will be.

I came to Sun with 15 yrs experience.  I wont mention my salery experience except to say I was at the higher end of game industry engineer saleries at that time.  My classifaction initially was MTS4.  (Member of Technical Staff 4).  Because of the kind of work i did, a few years in I was mvoed up to Staff Engineer (the next level) and my salery went up significantly.

Beyond that Im afraid I ca't tell you much.  HR might be able to give you more guidelines.

My girlfriend is having the issue applying for jobs here in the US.  The way I see it you and her are in the same boat, so I'll say the same thing I say to her!  I've seen the stuff you've done and if they don't hire you only for that reason it's their loss!  It's really frustrating!  We are heading toward a true "World-Community" but companies are too lazy / stupid to keep up!

Well, who knows, there seems to be a fair few companies in the US who are happy to employ blokes from blighty as contractors at least.

I might even be able to stay in Software Smiley

*sigh*

The posting is more or less caught up in red tape.

Its supposed to be to offload the work I was doing with you guys on projects as well as have more active web site support. 

Ofcourse while I was actually DOING the work, even though the deal was it was temporary, they did *nothing* to fill the position.

I'vr basically put my foot down and just dropped it on the floor.  I apologize to you folks on that but i just DONT have the tiem anymore and the only way it will ever get handed off is if I just plain refuse to do it Sad

Anyway, I hear various half-baked plans flaoting around-- everywhere from really opening this position up again to gettign the desktop guys to do it.

so the short answer is, no its not filled, they may hire someone for it eventually, they may not.  **sigh**
