A colleague of mine from the Data and Modeling Group mentioned that they have a new senior developer position open working on their new datajs project.

This developer would be responsible for defining how modern web and mobile applications use and interact with data on JavaScript platforms. We deal with and work on defining a number of standards including HTML5’s IndexedDB and OData, as well as provide a new set of end-to-end experiences for accessing, managing, and storing data in JS.

What’s interesting to me is that datajs appears to be an open source project under the MIT license!

From its description on the datajs CodePlex page,

datajs is a new cross-browser JavaScript library that enables data-centric web applications by leveraging modern protocols such as JSON and OData and HTML5-enabled browser features. It’s designed to be small, fast and easy to use. \

For those of you who are interested but don’t live in Redmond, Washington, this position is in Redmond and requires relocation.

How do I apply?

If you’re interested in the position, please contact Jeff Derstadt jeffders@microsoft.com. I don’t know anything more about the job than what I posted here in this blog post.

I do know that I’ve worked with people on that team as partners on in various capacities and they’re smart folks doing good work. I’m sure my team and your team (should you get the job) would end up working closely together. Smile
