Lisp Developers, Ft Lauderdale, Florida; possible telecommute

Ken Tilton writes:


I just signed on as the lead of an eight-month project to take a fast-growing Ft Lauderdale health-insurance company’s web portal to the next level in a complete re-write expected to take eight months. This is just the beginning for them so they prefer permanent hires who will stay on for much more work ahead. We’ll be using AllegroCL and, for the database, AllegroGraph. We have an immediate need for up to five developers experienced in Lisp-family languages and with solid experience in Web development, database programming, and/or KR. The client much prefers people to be local/permanent but will fall back on telecommuters if necessary so the latter should feel free to contact me.

Cheers, Ken
