Unix job post

To Whom It May Concern -

I was given this email address by Alfred Perlstein to send a job posting for a Unix position. Below are all the
details. Thanks:

International Knowledge Measurement ( is currently seeking Subject Matter Experts to
serve as authors and reviewers to create a web-based assessment test for Unix System Programming. This
assessment is designed for Unix professionals to measure proficiency in Unix Programming. It should
everything required for developers to work in a Unix environment. Note: this test will not really get into
shell scripting; we currently have a separate test for shell scripting.

These are part-time, contract, telecommuting positions where you work from home. Our authors and
reviewers typically work nights and weekends over a 6-8 week period to prepare an assessment that, on
average, consists of a pool of 150 questions. All work is done in an online tool, which is accessed through
the company's website. Authors write original test questions and reviewers validate these for
technical correctness. Some creative thinking and creative writing is involved. Compensation is based
on the number of questions developed.

This work is to develop test questions that measure a candidate’s knowledge of the technology. It is NOT
to work on our company’s system, or do develop software for us. Please understand this when applying.

Complete lists of tests we are currently developing and hoping to develop are available on our website:

Please have more than 5 years of experience with this technology. Previous teaching and/or writing
experience are big pluses.

Contact me with a resume if you are interested in this test or another at craig <at>

Best regards,
