Posted by Techdirt on February 05, 2020 04:00:00 This is the article that started it all, and if you have never heard of it before, don’t worry.
It’s from a tech company called ESCORT, which is the acronym for “Electronic Control Systems.”
The company specializes in making computers more efficient and fun to use, and the most recent job announcement is a “Computer Science Assistant,” or CSAs, position.
According to the company, the position is open to anyone with “an interest in computer science” who is interested in being part of the team and learning about “how computers can be used to create a better world for humanity.”
It’s an interesting position to fill, as it requires some technical skills that a lot of people don’t have.
The position also requires “a strong interpersonal, verbal, and written communication skills” and “strong analytical skills,” the company notes.
As of January 2020, ESCORT has 2,000 employees, which means that it’s a pretty big company.
The job listing states that the salary range is $65,000 to $160,000, but I’ve seen the job postings on Escort’s website and they are not very expensive, with the average salary of $72,000.
ESCORT is a subsidiary of an Australian company called Cognex, which makes products that enable people to track their health data remotely.
The company is looking for someone who will “lead a team of over 200 people, develop new solutions to deliver a faster and more efficient computing experience, and design and build products to help make the experience of using the Cogex technology more enjoyable for everyone,” the job listing reads.
A company spokesperson told The Verge that they don’t advertise the positions, and that the positions are “not available to applicants for the current positions.”
But it’s nice to see companies trying to attract more people to their tech teams, even if they’re not directly hiring them.
A recent job posting by an online marketing company, which I don’t know who it’s affiliated with, specifically listed the position of a “computer systems engineer.”
It also listed a job description, and a salary range, for a software engineer.
You can read that job posting here.
In the meantime, if you’re looking for a computer-related job, or you’re a person who has been told you’re qualified for one by a tech employer, this article is for you.
I hope you enjoy reading about the company that makes this technology.
I know it’s not the most exciting job in the world, but it’s fun.
