Subject: Need a compiler / language sw programmer at DANGER, INC. (Palo Alto)
Date: Thu, 26 Sep 2002 12:22:56 -0700

To be blunt, I'm hoping to recruit you to explore Danger, Inc. We're a privately held, VC funded company, located in
beautiful downtown Palo Alto and will launch our wireless Internet
technology next week. We're less than 100 people, well-funded and
have a very fun culture.

We've created a new position in our Apps/Browser team which requires
strong compiler / language design experience, ideally with JavaScript,
but... The task is to help build a world class browser for what we
feel is a killer new wireless gadget/platform. We are willing to
relocate people from out of state, we're open to H-1 sponsorship, etc.
The position pays depending on experience, but the high-end is
somewhere in the high $120Ks + options.

The project:

Implement JavaScript language on the Danger platform. Work with other
browser team engineers to integrate the JavaScript language with core
browser for DOM and other browser scripting features.

The religion:

This is the chance to start a new wave beyond the desktop. Netscape
invented the web, but so far it's mostly limited to desktop. Carrying
the web in your pocket will be fun and can reach out to a whole new
group of people.

The technical challenge:

The device has limited memory and resources (but enough) and that
makes the engineering challenging. It's not formular coding, we have
to think hard about technical choices. We have a server back end which
is a powerful resource, and so the architecture of the little device
and big server makes for some interesting strategies for solving

The people:

Good people, dedicated web browser engineers from Netscape, AvantGo,
WebTV. We want to create the best web experience possible on a mobile

Beyond the project:

Beyond JavaScript is the rest of the browser, beyond that is a brand
new platform, and a new concept with lots of possibilities. Still a
small team at Danger, so still lots of chance to grab interesting new
