RIM Hiring Two JavaScript Developers in Ontario – Apply Now!


I know some other news outlets have been covering possible layoffs at RIM but Thorsten Heins has been clear that RIM is still hiring in departments working on BlackBerry 10. Adam Stanley from RIM’s developer relations team drove that point home this week by highlighting two new job openings for JavaScript developers out in Mississauga, Ontario. One is for a team lead for BlackBerry WebWorks and another is for a software developer for the WebKit engine.

Check out the details on the two jobs on the DevBlog along with many more over on the RIM careers website. Hell I would even apply myself but I have grown attached to Manhattan.

Here are the two listings:
