Well I don't think our stuff will be painful for anyone who's interested 
in video, even the C++. It's mostly all been done by one person who's 
very strong on readability so you won't have to struggle with many 
different styles. Other programmers have told me it's a pleasure to work 
on Adam's code..

For the right person, let's just say pay will not be an issue. All 
depends on what you can do.
We would sponsor an applicant thru business migration program, but 
suggest you take a holiday first & see if you like it.
How long is the job for? Well the immediate project is to add features 
to existing product, probably about 6 months. Things like improvements 
to the video editor, better transcoding, easier system installation and 
support. But there are more projects. You will have major input into 
what they are. Existing guy has been with us for about 25 years, started 
when still in high school. So if you like the place and find you'd like 
to stay (and you're good!) you'll be welcome. It's a family business 
that's been around since 1976.
