We are looking to hire a Haskell expert to work with us at Well-Typed as a Haskell developer. This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is passionate about Haskell and who is keen to improve and promote Haskell in a professional context.

The role is quite general and could cover any of the projects and activities that we are involved in as a company. The tasks may involve:

  • working on the Haskell compiler, libraries and tools;
  • Haskell application development;
  • working directly with clients to solve their problems;
  • teaching Haskell, and developing training materials.

At the moment, we are particularly hoping to find someone with an interest in supporting the development and maintenance of GHC. Therefore, some knowledge or interest in compiler internals, operating systems, the foreign function interface (FFI), and/or deployment issues would be welcome.

Well-Typed has a variety of clients. For some we do proprietary Haskell development and consulting. For others, much of the work involves open-source development and cooperating with the rest of the Haskell community: the commercial, open-source and academic users.

Our ideal candidate has excellent knowledge of Haskell, whether from industry, academia, or personal interest. Familiarity with other languages, low-level programming, and good software engineering practices are also useful. Good organisation and ability to manage your own time, and reliably meet deadlines, is important. You should also have good communication skills. Being interested or having experience in teaching Haskell (or other technical topics) is a bonus. Experience of consulting, or running a business, is also a bonus. You are likely to have a bachelor's degree or higher in computer science or a related field, although this isn't a requirement.

The offer is initially for a one-year full time contract. We are also happy to receive applications for part-time work. The annual salary is from GBP 34,800 or pro rata for part-time or flexible work. We also operate a bonus scheme. We offer flexible hours and work from home. Living in England is not required. We may be able to offer either employment or sub-contracting, depending on the jurisdiction in which you live.

If you are interested, please apply via info@well-typed.com. Tell us why you are interested and why you would be a good fit for the job, and attach your CV. Please also indicate how soon you might be able to start. We are more than happy to answer informal enquiries. Contact Duncan Coutts, Ian Lynagh or Andres Löh for further information, either by email or IRC.

To ensure we can properly consider your application, please get it to us by July 25th, 2013, though we may be able to consider applications received later.
