Yesterday I had an email conversation with a headhunter who’s looking for a Synergy/DE (or DIBOL) programmer. Not something I can fill because it’s a permanent, full-time position in the Orlando, Florida area. But if any of my readers are interested, please contact me. Here are the qualifications:
- Synergy/DE (DIBOL) and C/C++
- Five years experience desired
- Salary range $80K – $85K
- OpenVMS operating system
- MS SQL Server and Oracle databases
- Must relocate to Orlando
Synergy/DE programmers are a bit hard to find. Not many people know the language, yet it’s used in business applications around the world. Most of these are what you would call “legacy” apps, but many are still undergoing aggressive enhancement, so demand for programmers is high.
In that relatively small pond, I’m the big fish. I not only work with some companies that use Synergy/DE, I also help Synergex develop the language and tools. Since there are lots of ways for someone to connect Synergy/DE to me, I had to ask how they found me. The answer, Google “Dibol resumes”. The only first-page result that leads to me is for this post, which isn’t about DIBOL or resumes. I mentioned DIBOL as part of my past history with standards, but nothing about resumes.
So, thanks to serendipity, Doug, and the Holy Google, I just might be able to snag a referral bonus.
