BeBook looking for developers!

As in this thread on their support forum


Ambitious BeBook developers wanted.


Quote:
- Has the BeBook little or no secrets for you?
- Do you have suggestions for improvement, and the know how to implement these?
- Do the questions on the support section make you smile and think "I know the most likely answer"?
- Do you know Linux inside out.?
- Do you know that SDK isn't a brand of audio tapes? (that's TDK)
- Have you ever wondered "Why didn't they implement 'whatever feature' already? (because it only takes 10 minutes if I did it myself)

You scored a 6 out of 6?

We're looking for ambitious software developers to help us improve our BeBook.

If you're interested, please state why you qualify.

We offer:
- A closed forum, just for all of you, to discuss and develop possible features.
- The tools needed.
- The latest new development news from our side.
- Personal credit on features implemented in updates.
- A letter of recommendation if you made a substantial contribution.
- A free T-shirt. (or two if you like)
- The opportunity to be included in our soft- and hardware beta tests.

In short: Do you think you can help us in whatever way possible, feel free to apply. No matter if it's on DRM issues, layout, possibilities of the reader itself, improvements on the file formats. You're welcome.

Just send an e-mail to support@bebook.com

So, they are basically hiring without paying you. Wouldn't they just be better of to open source everything (perhaps they can't since they use OEM)?

Sounds like they want free programmers. I believe Astak is also looking for a programmer with Hanlin experience and I believe they might even be willing to pay a salary. I know its old school.
