Do I need to speak, read or write Norwegian? Do I need to move to, or closer to, Norway?

Hi Jim,

>Do I need to speak, read or write Norwegian?

No, English will do fine. We use English for all documentation, comments, requests, bug-reports etc.

We will translate the description to English and add the link to it here shortly.

>Do I need to move to, or closer to, Norway

Yes. The work site is in Oslo, Norway - close to the Norwegian Parliament and Royal Castle... :)

Next to the Royal Castle? That would be cool. Don't see many castles here in Idaho. What does it take to get citizenship or work visa in Norway?

> What does it take to get citizenship or work visa in Norway?

I've been checking a little. For European Union citizens (EEA area) there are no problems. For others, we have to argue that the person is a specialist that is hard to obtain from within the EEA area:

"For a person to be granted a permit as a specialist it is a requirement that the special expertise is deemed absolutely necessary for the business enterprise, and that the post cannot be filled by domestic labour or labour from the EEA area. "

More info here:

Remote/contract work isn't probably what you're looking for ?

BTW I haven't seen ".NET" in the ad :-)

Hallvard Vassbotn said...

Hi Petr!

No, its not remote/contract work. We're looking for an on-site employee working in the Oslo office.

We're not using .NET in the production environment - yet. The Delphi position is mainly to work on the Win32 VCL client application and the C++ position is to maintain and new development on the server side - writing native Windows services.

Petr Vones said...

Hi Hallvard,

I see. As for server side applications, I wouldn't start any new development in Win32 anymore. .NET seems to be perfect for windows services (no AVs, no memory leaks in RTL/VCL and so on ;-)

Hallvard Vassbotn said...

We have a large library of debugged, efficient code implementing an infrastructur on which to build services that handle realtime financial traffic and more.

We have no incentive to re-implement that on the .NET platform - and the result would be probably less performant... ;)

Hey Hallvard,

Thanks for the heads up.

I wonder if I qualify, so I'm sending in an email query.

Chee Wee.
