Apart from speaking English and/or Italian and java
, what's the job-spec? You seem to have forgotten this vital ingredient...
LOL you seem to have forgotten I'm italian, what do you intend for "job-spec"? If I got it correctly you are asking about wanted capabilities:
UML knowledge (you have to be my right arm!).
Basic Knowledge of 3D (JOGL and Xith3D appreciated).
At least 3 years of industrial experience in Java.
AI coding experience appreciated.
Previous experience with Java for at least a year.
Capability to code on UML specifications.
Mainly for tool/support programming.
I want to add that the project will start on late 2004 or early 2005 (our investors have to take their time to open the purses). The extimated duration is around 2-3 years (depending on founding, mainly).
If all goes well on the first project the software house will continue to work on other titles, so the working timeframe will not be limited to the current project but will extend undefinitely (till we can make money, I guess) for core members.
What we want at the moment are people that think they can handle the task, nothing definitive, when economic terms of the project will be clearer, you'll receive a "real" work offer with salary informations and everything else.
They want the core staff candidates with their portfolios to evaluate the economic effort to allocate on the project, so we need in advance people that can offer themselves if (and when) the project starts.
Sounds odd, I know, but It's the Italian way of business, I suppose (I worked almost always out of Italy, so don't ask me why
