UPDATE: Some nice people at Red Hat apparently made a lot of effort to get me back on track as soon as possible, and I’m officially back to Red Hat since April 18th, 2011. I’d like to thank everyone who contacted me to let me know there are many possibilities in my career.
I have been on a parental leave since January 1st this year. Although I was supposed to be back next year, I decided to get back sooner. However, there aren’t any open job slots for me at the moment, so I have to wait at least until June to get back to Red Hat and get the right position. To be honest, I don’t think I can wait that long unless it is certain enough. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem so yet although I still would love to be a Red Hatter.
Since my manager kindly told me that it is fine for me to explore any job opportunity publicly because I might not be able to get back to Red Hat soon enough, I’d like to let everyone know I’m looking for a job.
As some of you may know, I’m an expert on building Java-based high performance server applications, spanning from asynchronous messaging to modern RPC style communication and from highly optimized custom protocol to HTTP. I’m the founder of Netty and Apache MINA, the Java NIO frameworks. I have strong background on Java network programming, multi-threading, and performance profiling. I also am interested in writing in Scala or any interesting JVM-based languages, although I’m a beginner in those languages at best. You might want to check my LinkedIn profile for more information.
If you are interested enough and your company can let me work at home in South Korea (GMT+9) without relocation, please contact me.
