Subject: SAS JMP summer positions
Your former student and current SAS/JMP employee Justin Mosiman gave me your names; please redirect me as appropriate.
I want to spread the word about a couple summer positions in our group in case you have anyone to recommend. JMP have a relatively small technical team within the larger SAS, and we build an interactive desktop product with active users. In addition to programming, the students will likely be involved with graphics and user interaction design.
I’m happy to talk or meet with you if it would help understand current or future possibilities.
R & D Director, JMP Data Visualization
Summer Student - JMP Visualization Programmer-13001643
You will collaborate with management, developers, and other testers to exercise and improve JMP, an interactive desktop statistical software package. Your duties will include writing scripts in JSL (JMP Scripting Language) to test and extend JMP with a focus on graphical displays. Your work may result in a JMP add-on that will be published in the JMP File Exchange and an article written by you for the external JMP blog.
