At Truviso, we're building a PostgreSQL-based data stream processing
engine: that is, a modified version of PostgreSQL that can execute SQL
queries over both historical data (tables) and live data streams. We're
looking for great hackers to help us build our stream processing engine
and the middle-tier and frontend applications that are built upon it.

We're a venture-funded startup located in Foster City, CA, in the San
Francisco Bay Area. We can offer you:

    * the chance to play a major role in the development of
      leading-edge technology, to tackle hard problems, and to work
      with colleagues who are intelligent, motivated, and passionate
      about writing great software

    * an exciting startup environment

    * highly-competitive compensation, including stock options and
      health benefits

Relocation to the Bay Area would be preferred (we'd be happy to provide
relocation assistance), but is not strictly necessary for the right
candidate.

Specific job descriptions follow. For more information or to submit your
resume, please contact me via email (nconway at truviso.com).
