This is a FTE job at The Boeing Company and can be found by going to the
job seeker page on www.boeing.com .  Here are the details of the job to
the best of my knowledge.  One of the criteria is that the position is
targeted for a recent college graduate (someone that received a college
degree within the past 2 years).
  I believe that the job req closes at the end of this week, so if you are
possibly interested, do not put off checking into this position.
  This job will involve working on mostly UNIX platforms (IBM/AIX), but
there is some interaction with Linux systems and of course some ActivePerl
work on the desktop.  You will be working with quite large XML files,
writing Perl programs to do analysis on the content of these files and
troubleshoot problems associated with the files.  The project is well
documented and you will be work in an environment where change is
controlled through ClearQuest change requests but the overhead associated
with approval of work is low.  The primary database is Oracle, but we also
have some interaction with SQLServer.  Another significant component of
the job is working with graphic files.  The two types of files are CGM
vector graphics and TIFF raster graphics.  The actual system software
(which is written in java) is developed off shore.  Your role is not to
develop project software but rather to perform analysis and develop tools
for the users of the system and the other analysts of the system to use.  
The vast majority of the work is in Puget Sound but there may be occasions
that require travel to Long Beach CA.

   contract or permanent position 

   for contracts, expected duration and pay range 

   for permanent positions, availability of stock options or other incentive plans
