Samathy is looking for work!


Home Location: Nottingham

Remote/Onsite/Commuting: Remote strongly preferred, Nottingham/Derby UK Onsite, commuting considered depending on location and office hours.

Full-Time, Permanent. Contracting considered.

I recently graduated from Coventry University Computer Science (1st with honours) in May 2018 and just finished a contract with CodeWeavers working on the Wine project.

I am looking for a new position to start immediately.

My field is software engineering. I specialise in working on lower-level technical problems in languages like C++, Java, D and Python. I'm a huge lover of Free and Open Source Software. Linux is my primary platform with 98% of my favored tools and technologies being FOSS. Of course, Windows and other platforms are never a problem. Just different.

I'd be looking for a permanent position. I'd really like to be working remotely from my home in Nottingham, or onsite in or around Nottingham, UK, but will certainly consider offers of commuting or part-time commuting (such as a job in London). I speak rudimentary German, having been learning for 3 years.

Please have a mooch around my information below, and do get in touch if you'd like to talk further about what I'm looking for, or to tell me about any positions you have, or if you know of anyone with any positions I might want to look into!
