Hi,

Apologies for the cross posting.  I hope that I have not sent this job
posting to any mailing list where it is not appropriate.  Feel free to
forward this message to
any webdav-related announce mailing lists if deemed suitable.

Lime Wire is looking for a Senior Developer to work with us on two
advanced WebDAV servers that we plan to open source.  One server is a
fork of the Catacomb project and is being written as an Apache C
module.  The other server is being written in Ruby on Rails and is
more of a prototype.  Both servers are backed by a database (currently
MySQL) with resource bodies being stored on the file system.

Our servers are written from the ground up to support the BIND draft
(with support for bind cycles).  Other RFCs / drafts that we plan to
support are:

Basic WebDAV (RFC 2518) (plus locking)
ACL (RFC 3744)
Quota & Size (RFC 4331)
DeltaV (RFC 3253)
SEARCH
Redirect (RFC 4437)
CalDAV
Mount (RFC 4709)

We have basic webdav, acl, quota, and some basic DeltaV features
working already in our Apache C implementation.  We are currently
finishing off the basic webdav features in our Rails implementation.

Why haven't we open-sourced these servers yet?  We have not yet firmly
decided which open-source licenses to use for the servers.  In
addition, we need to devote time and resources to setup the
open-source projects so that we can properly foster a community around
them.  Part of this position will involve fostering this community.

Our main office is in New York City.  This position requires
relocating to the New York metropolitan area if you don't already live
there.

We currently have two developers working on the project here in
Manhattan and eight developers working remotely in Gurgaon, India
(Gurgaon is just outside Delhi).  They regularly visit New York for
months at a time.  Part of this position will involve communication
with our remote developers (and of course, the eventual open-source
community).  This position will likely include periodic travel to
Gurgaon (probably about once or twice a year for two or three weeks at
a time).

If you're interested, please email webdav-jobs@limewire.com with a
resume and cover letter.  Please include in the cover letter how you
found out about this job posting.

posting:
