In the Skeeter's last post we were trying to help predict where High Tech was going by researching the Job postings from the companies listed in Wired magazine's top 40 High Tech companies. But we only scratched the surface, and you know how Mosquito's hate scratching...
so let’s continue down the list a bit.
#13 Electronic Arts
If you notice that I've been passing up a number of companies in the Wired top 40 it is because some of these other companies are just too dull to write about, fortunately Electronic Arts is always worth talking about and in the job department it is no exception. As of today they have 247 jobs open in
Another job at EA is for a Investor Relations Associate now the text of the job is what is interesting here "...manage the perceptions of investors, analysts and other financial market influences in order to drive sustainable, dependable shareholder value of EA as a publicly traded company." For some reason when I read this my mind flashed back to Joe Izuzu's promises in the late 1980's. Now granted EA is a really excellent company, but still am I the only one that gets a little queasy reading this?
(and you thought I was going in numerical order)
650 jobs around the globe show up in today's job list. Only things you love can come out of Cisco and now I can prove it because they are ramping up on project Herbie otherwise known to Lindsay Lohan and to the rest of us as "The LOVE bug". Herbie is Cisco's next generation Network Management Platform. Herbie though really wouldn't be special if he wasn't a bug, so wouldn't it kind of be sacrilegious for Cisco to work on debugging Herbie?
Cisco is also trying to find a Linux guru with the following question: "Do you want to be part of Cisco's next generation Audio/Video system that will change the whole industry?" So if this isn't just hype we should all be on the lookout for a cool AV system coming out of Cisco in the not two distant future.
It looks like they have a new implantable medicine delivery system in the works with this posting. It is with the group that works with obesity, so perhaps they are working on something that is safer then gastric bypass surgery. This could be really good news for lots of American's that are trying to lose weight but just can't. After all not everyone can afford a personal trainer to help them lose 60+ pounds like Janet Jackson has recently done.
Till next time
