Please comment on this post or email me if you are interested in this localization engineer position. I’ll put you in contact with the recruiter.
Direct from the recruiter:
The requirement is for a Localization Engineer in San Jose working for one of the leading Web Commerce companies. They are looking for more than the typical Localization Engineer as they need someone who has done some programming, not just scripting. I have attached a description and also listed below some things the manager said they have been missing in the candidates so far.
What I’ve been missing so far in candidates is
- Experience with web localization (more a focus on i18n engineering, but then without real coding skills), and enterprise localization tools (e.g. WorldServer)
- Significant modern coding skills (going beyond a simple VBA macro or Perl script), e.g. ability to write some Java application, understand/fix/enhance existing code, or a simple plug-in against a documented SDK (more than just passive knowledge of Java, etc)
- Ability to clearly articulate concepts or thoughts, describe processes
If this sounds like a good fit, I can email you more details. Good luck!
