Ok, first off I have my asbestos underwear on, so don't flame me for mentioning the 'M' word. I still have a sweet spot in my heart for Sun Microsystems (can't wait to see how their Niagra proc does).
Out of the blue I just received an email from a recuiter at Microsoft asking if I knew of any former/current Cray Software Design Engineers she/he could talk with. Since I can't remember everybody that worked in the F building, I decided ExCray.com would be my best choice. I pasted the email below, their email address is: shallys at microsoft.com
Contact me at kevin.drysdale at greenheck.com if you would like me to forward the email to you.
I work for Microsoft and was doing some research when I came across some info about you online. I noticed you worked at Cray a while back and thought you may be someone who might be able to help me if I asked nicely :-)
I was hoping you might be able to suggest who I could talk to about Software Design Engineer positions that we have open. I'm particularly interested in having our recruiters talk with Engineers who you know may have also worked at Cray. I have recently just started at Microsoft so my network of senior contacts is pretty small at the moment. As you know senior individuals generally do not post their resume to places like Monster.com but rather use their professional network to get to senior positions like this.
Hope you can help the 'new kid in town' or at least point me in the right direction?
