    Our company is a very well funded startup building the next generation
    of search algorithms, solving some very exciting problems. We are going
    after the issues in search that the larger companies are being slow to
    address, taking web search to the next level. We have already had
    serious interest from the major search players but we want to strike
    out on our own, to stay innovative and cutting-edge. This is an
    opportunity to help define what that next phase of search will look
    like. We are looking for driven individuals that have experience of
    software engineering in algorithmic search.

    Pay: $150k-$200k
    Mountain View, CA

    Areas for which we are hiring include:
    * Search result relevance.
    * Content gathering or analysis.
    * Algorithm optimization.
    * Large scale distributed indices.
    * Next-generation search algorithms.
    * Linguistic computation.
    * Best-fit search answer selection.

    Requirements:
    * Understanding of web search algorithms and algorithm complexity.
    * Experience of implementing efficient algorithms
    * Familiarity with GNU development.
    * Good understanding of web technologies such as HTTP, CSS, XML, SOAP,
    JavaScript, etc.
    * Experience of working with terabyte-level data collections.

    That's nice.

    We discuss the C programming language here. There are a number of
    newsgroups with the word "jobs" in their names, where your posting
    would probably be welcome. This is not one of them.

    We must do something. This is something. Therefore, we must do this.
