Fun: We have a little patience for people who don’t enjoy their work.

This has a dystopian vibe to it…

I kind of find it ironic to post such a position on a forum that was created by and for people who had had enough of Xojo.

Plus… there is no such thing as “Xojo without Geoff”.

Ooof! Vibe verified.

It is at least a job proposal for someone who has invested time in learning Xojo and API2.
The ‘fun’ requirement says that ranting all the time about Xojo while working with the team isn’t adequate.

If you are open for international applications it may be helpful to indicate the time zone or define in UTC.

Nice catch. Updated. Thanks (didn’t do it UTC but if an applicant can’t can’t figure it out from there…)

Having worked for Jay in the past I’d say that it is indeed a fun place to work and his description IS quite accurate. It is fast paced, challenging, and there is a wide range of skills needed

If I had to summarize it I’d say his attitude is

Work Hard. Play Harder.

The “vibe” you’re suggesting isnt there in my experience

@jay I don’t the get the title.

If this were 6 months I’d apply, even though I don’t meet the criteria. 25 Years of RB/RS/Xo but that’s all API 1.0 and some Web 1.0.

However I’ve thrown myself at Swift, SwiftUI and right now learning marketing.

…and with this you show more management quality than “our stable genius”

Cheerfully withdrawn

The title is to catch attention, to make sure more people are reading. If Jay would have written “Hiring” it will attract less attention.

I have not the necessary skills, however, we should respect this job opportunity. It sounds perfectly valid to me.
