Hands-on Quality Assurance Manager/Architect
We are a technology focused company that was founded and managed by a team of dedicated engineers. Our goal is to invent the best technology in the world and to see that technology widely deployed.

    Hi Sandy (please ignore the formatting)

    I took a look at the job opening for SQA Manager. I have 12 years direct hands-on-experience using perl, tcl and networking.

    I obtained CCNA and directly worked on networking using tcl. This opening is very challenging to me and I am very excited to put all the talent, energy.

    I have direct management experience as Manager, and was managing 5 people about 10 years ago. Hence additional group size should not be a problem.

    I look forward to hearing from you either via email, phone or postal mail. I just rented an apartment for 6 months here in Glen Mills, PA because one of my friend found a job here. The lease is for 6 months.

    I would need assistance in moving to CA. In Cisco I was earning $107000 per year (graduated with Masters in 1986 🙂 hence took a while to reach that. I am open for salary negotiation.

    I am very very thank ful to you. Please take a note of my phone numbers and do drop a phone call as soon as possible, would mean a lot.

    with warm regards,
