Software Engineer This is the only entry point to our elite software products division. We are primarily looking for freshers to fill these positions. Preferred educational background would be a BTech/MCA/BSc. No specific knowledge in any programming language would be expected. Knowledge in some low level language like C would be considered a bonus. There will be an analytical test as well as a personal interview for selection to this position. After sufficient initial training the software engineer would be put into various projects until he/she is competent to move on to the product development division. Be forewarned that not everybody who gets selected will be able to make it to this elite division. Content Developer We are looking for a bright, smart, young fresher with excellent communication skills and a strong command over English. Educational background is not a consideration for this position. However it would be reasonable to assume that the person would more probably be from an arts background than from a science background. It would also be expected that the person will have good creative skills as would be expected of people with strong English skills. The person will be responsible to develop content, non-technical as well as technical, for the company. The person does not have to have any kind of programming background.

Linux Evangelist As a company which believes in the potentials of FLOSS for a country like India we have set upon ourselves a task to promote Linux in whatever ways we can. We are looking for a person who is passionate about Linux and has reasonably good communication skills to fill this position. We have already forged/are forging strong relationships with the student communities of different engineering colleges in Trivandrum and we would like to move ahead and enter the larger community as a whole. For this we need somebody who is passionate about Linux to spearhead this operation. RHCE or any other Linux certification will not be taken for granted as a certificate for knowledge in Linux or passion for Linux. The person will not be expected to know everything in Linux (as it would be practically impossible for somebody to get to that level), however he/she should have basic working knowledge and the willingness and the ability to explore, identify and implement solutions using available resources and tools. Responsibilities would include helping the Linux Community with their problems, manage and maintain the Zyxware servers, evangelize Linux through presentations, seminars and technical discussions in the community and at the different institutions in the community.
