Now accepting Resumes those "DIG DEEPER" types of Software Engineers that want to be part of something NEW and innovative. Tired of the mundane? Looking to do something that is innovative? Is that you? Then, let's talk!! Software Development Engineer, Platform or Applications Are you the person on your team who is always looking for the precise abstractions to express the solution? Do you believe that the process of writing software applications is far less efficient than it could be? Are you the type who wishes that user interfaces had kept up with the developments in modern graphics hardware, and that the cool UIs in movies were available to people in real life? Our client is looking for smart developers to contribute to a next-generation software platform and/or applications built using that platform. Our software captures the intent of users and projects it into many useful forms, including direct-manipulation UIs with rich graphics and animation. By conforming to this model, applications automatically acquire a rich set of high-level functionality that few companies can afford to develop themselves. We are continually improving our platform and are also building flagship applications in-house that leverage and showcase our technology. We are looking for software engineers who thrive on continually pushing the envelope, and we think we offer one of the best opportunities in the industry to truly apply your skills. You should have the following expertise: Exceptional software design and coding abilitiesFluency in C#, C++ , or JavaBS, MS, or PhD in Computer Science or a related discipline is desirable We are hiring for many different teams, and experience with any of the following will be a plus: User input technologies including multitouch, speech, and inkKnowledge representation3D graphicsDatabases, especially object or graphLayout and hit-testingCode generationAudio / VideoDeclarative programmingAnimationSecurityData visualizationProductivity applicationsServers and networksDistributed revision controlConcurrent programmingSemantic web stores and reasoners
Mission and Founder
Intentional is creating innovative software that will transform the way organizations collaborate to create and share ideas. Our next generation application platform for group productivity is designed for the latest hardware technologies and the modern workplace.
Intentional Software was founded by Charles Simonyi, chief architect of Microsoft Word and Excel. Prior to joining Microsoft in 1981, Simonyi created the first WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) Word Processor at Xerox PARC which revolutionized how business professionals create documents. Charles Simonyi holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University with a dissertation on Meta Programming
You may have noticed the highlighted E and A in our logo, and the backwards E and the upside down A in our logo icon and A have special meaning in the Simonyi Law; they stand for Entities and Aspects. The backwards E and upside down A are important mathematical symbols called the existential and universal quantifiers. An important branch of mathematics predicate logic is based on them. They are read as there exists and for all, hence their form that relates them to the letters E(xist) and A(ll). They are used to formally say things like for all questions, there exists an answer
Intentional Software is not specially connected with predicate logic, but the allusion to the quantifiers in the logo is still meaningful. It reminds us that there exists an intention for all domain concepts. It also suggests that the special notations of a domains in predicate logic, should be usable when expressing intentions.
The iconic form of the logo recalls the two quantifiers and adds the graphical element of an arrow symbolizing the generative techniques that are integral to Intentional Software.
Intentional Software builds on the Intentional Programming project led by Charles Simonyi at Microsoft Research. The Death of Computer Languages, The Birth of Intentional Programming describes the vision for that project; there is also a video. The Intentional Programming system enabled programs to be written and viewed in a variety of specific notations, and also permitted the smooth integration of domain-specific and general-purpose programs.
Intentional Software Corporation was founded in August, 2002 by Dr. Charles Simonyi and Professor Gregor Kiczales, the leader of the research team for aspect-oriented programming and the AspectJ programming language at Xerox PARC. Gregor Kiczales has returned as a full time professor of computer science at the University of British Columbia.
