HRworks has been an early provider of Software as a Service in the field of web-based travel expense calculation and other human relations services. And guess what? The software is written in VA Smalltalk. It’s been a web application long before Seaside was developped and it uses the VOSS object database system as a backend.
If you know Smalltalk or are willing to learn it and have a strong background in object technologies, or if you are a junior developer who’d like to work in Smalltalk, I have interesting news for you: HRworks is looking for a senior and a junior Smalltalk developer with knowledge in modern web technologies like Ajax, XML/Json etc.They are in process of updating their whole platform to support these new technologies, so it sounds like an exciting opportunity!
