Sierra Chart has some Job openings at this time:

---------------
C++ Developers:


- C++ developers. Assistant to the main engineer as well doing program code entry, code review, and systems administration.

We need someone who is experienced and knowledgeable with C++ and STL to help us with the development of the Sierra Chart project code base. There is a broad array of functionality we develop. We are not going to go into a whole lot of detail here. Instead we will look, at your Resume/CV and any other information you can provide.

We are also going to be doing some Linux development, so familiarity with Linux APIs, Is helpful but not required.

We are open to working, with a younger person who is fresh out of school or you are self-taught, or a more experienced C++ software engineer. Or a combination of people.

Areas of knowledge/experience:
Cryptography
Text-to-speech libraries
APIs/Libraries involving voice and video.
OpenGL
Low-level processing of exchange data feeds

None of the above is a requirement but if among people we hire, if someone has experience in one or more of these areas, it is helpful.


---------------
- A Documentation writer. Updating our documentation documenting new functionality and changes to functionality.

- Hardware systems administrator which would include set up and configuration, and monitoring and troubleshooting of servers. We use Dell servers. Running either Windows or Linux. So you need to be familiar with both Windows and Linux. You would not be working with physical hardware. Actual work with physical hardware is handled by other service providers but we would be interacting with those providers, instructing them on what to do. This also includes documenting each server regarding its configuration, and specifications, and access parameters.

- Experienced PHP and MySQL Web services developer to improve and simplify and maintain our existing code base in this area. We need someone who is a Linux systems expert, with system setup and configuration and maintenance.

If interested contact us through an account support ticket here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/UserControlPanel.php?page=SupportTickets

There will be a rigorous review and decision-making regarding applicants. The decision-making may take a long time on our side and we may not find who we are looking for.

We are not interested in posting tthese jobs elsewhere, through common jobsites because looking at those sites they look woke and not trustworthy. We want someone who shares our values.
---------------

Requirements:
- Need to be native English speaker or fluent in English.

- Must not have had the covid vaccine.

- Quality workmanship. Quality workmanship, following specifications, and proper care to follow specifications and programming standards is absolutely essential. And continuous ongoing consultations with senior programmers and management is all essential.

- Not doing things your own way but as we specify.

- It is not necessary to have a degree in its being self-taught is sufficient.

- Must recognize, that the use of exceptions is unacceptable and not good programming.

- Need to follow instructions precisely, and not be doing things your own way but doing things as we specify. We know what we need and how to do it, we just need help to get various tasks done sooner rather than later.

- Need to be intelligent and a fast learner.


Sierra Chart is a serious business that recognizes, the evil in this world. And does not believe in the New World order and all of their related nonsense and absurdities, like their plandemics, false man-made climate change claims (which is another subject which we have written extensively on), world government, and endless wars with all of their associated deceptions to fool people as to the real causes.

The leadership of this business is very strongly independent, libertarian/ conservative and believes in strong independence, minding our own business, and not being part of collectivist organizations and governments to the extent we can avoid. Collectivism/Socialism/communism is the worst possible thing on this planet. It is through this way that freedom is lost. No, we are not stronger together. We are stronger, with a free market with everyone being who they can be as long as they are minding their own business. Just letting you know in case you have very opposite views because we probably will not work well together in this regard.

One significant programming task we need to work on, and is something ongoing but we need to accelerate the process of is converting all of the older MFC windows to our new, window classes and the Settings type windows.

And then developing, an interface between the existing Windows functions in our program, to the Linux API.

We want to update this thread and say that we are quite busy, and we may be slow to respond to application tickets we have received. Thank you for your patience.

Also on the side of web services development involving PHP and MySQL, upon further consideration we are fine in this area. Our main need is going to be for at least 1 C++ developer and a documentation writer. We will be reviewing the applications we have for documentation writers.

A hardware systems administrator is also another need. So we will be looking over the applications for that.

We also want to describe, why we specify the the senior engineer and leadership, has a strong independent/libertarian/conservative (not in a political sense, we want to make that clear because, we are not trying to promote political values)/traditional values. And believes very much in decentralization of power and authority to the individual and local communities versus the state, and super states. Although in the US, decentralization away from the federal government towards the states is absolutely essential at this point in time.

Here is a definition of conservative:
adjective Favoring traditional views and values; tending to oppose change.
adjective Traditional or restrained in style.
adjective Moderate; cautious.

So as you can see, looking at Sierra Chart, it fits with this.

The reason this is relevant is because it directly relates to programming philosophies. We will give two examples of this. More could be given but we will just leave it at two:

Many years ago we created our own file Open and Save dialog which you can see through File >> New/Open Historical/Intraday Chart. This is a very high-performance interface for looking at the files for opening a file or saving a file. It can easily handle 1,000,000 files and literally in our server environments in the case of processing options feeds, we do often look at 1,000,000+ files.

The Microsoft version of this, is absolutely hideously/heinously inefficient. It is very sluggish and slow, and provides way too much functionality, and is sloppy. There is no way in hell it could handle 1,000,000 files. It simply will never open and will freeze the program.

Same thing with File Explorer. When performing operations on many tens of thousands of files, or hundreds of thousands of files. The operation will never complete. Compare this to performing the same operation through our Sierra Chart program code, the operation will be done in a matter of seconds. So seconds versus, hours and a never ending operation with File Explorer which maxes out a CPU core endlessly.

One of the developer says we should not create our own file open/save dialog because it then creates an inconsistency with Sierra Chart as compared to other programs or what users are used to in the operating system. This is not valid because what Microsoft is providing is simply just unacceptable and does not work. And also does not work well with what we want to do. For example, if you typed into the file name box in a Microsoft open file dialog ESM24.scid and that file did not exist, it would give you an error when you try to open it. If you remove the extension, you then could proceed by pressing the Open button and then Sierra Chart will create the file.

Another example, was we had specified for one of the programmers to create pop-up text, when hovering over a control bar button. Initially they used MFC functionality for this. We said no. This must be done ourselves with our own window controlled by a timer. So the pop-up text you see, when hovering over control bar is fully developed by us.

So you can see, we always do things ourselves, and with complete independence as much as possible from the operating system. Not relying on others, but relying upon ourselves.

This is why we also want to develop an operating system.

And another thing is that some software is becoming absurdly deranged and being botched and becoming woke, and being imposed upon the world, that when we see something in software that is just so wrong we refer to it as "crimes against humanity". In many areas of software development there is no progress. There is a race to the bottom.

And there is no reason, to disbelieve anything we are saying. The world is breaking down. Nothing is trustworthy anymore. And we are going to continue to see massive deterioration which is going to endanger all of us. This is coming. So in other words, all of the absurdities and nonsense and wokeness that we see, leading towards the destruction of life as we know it.

Take for example the Texas governor. Has now declared an invasion on the southern border. With the US federal government the enemy and facilitating this.

We will maintain an opposite position with stability, good values and common sense.

----

We also want to briefly mention a side project we worked on, by researching this so-called "climate change" allegedly related to man's activities on the planet. And we have written an extensive article on it that we want to eventually put out. What we determined, this is all based on absolute fact, is that CO2 and methane, are overwhelmingly, naturally emitted, and not from man. Man only contributes about 3% of CO2 to the atmosphere. Similarly with methane. Although the percentages are different but we are not sure what those are for methane, we would have to check.

Just due to basic planetary physics, and inherent cooling of the planet due to winter/fall and night there cannot possibly be a global warming condition from tiny trace gases which are not a source of heat.

So all this man-made climate allegations proposals and research, has no validity whatsoever. And we have looked at some of this kind of research and they really go to extremes, to provably false nonsense to try to prove their point. Essentially what is going on, is that there are people in the "scientific", fields taking money from governments (a form of welfare), and trying to prove man-made global warming, to support those people who are paying them, governments and governmental type organizations like the UN intergovernmental panel on climate change, who have the intention of simply dominating and controlling humanity. This is all. It is all very fraudulent.

The weather on the planet is 100% driven by the sun and also the moon simply due to the heat energy of the sun (both from the photons in the infrared and visible range) and the gravitational pull of the moon. Certainly different areas of the planet and terrain of the planet contributes to different climate zones and temperature and wind profiles but the weather is simply created by the sun and also the moon due to its gravitational pull on the atmosphere.

And based upon what we have read, we are in a period, of higher solar irradiance. So if there is some warming, it fits with the activity of the sun.

It only makes sense over long spans of time, that there is going to be variations in climate. That is expected. It is just a matter of adapting to the extent necessary. There is no way, man is going to change this. It is out of our control. That is why, the communists, and the socialists and the world government people, want to fault CO2 and methane from man because they then have an excuse to control people rather than faulting the sun because none of us can possibly control the sun. But yet it is the sun and only the sun, which creates weather/climate/heat (other than heat emissions from the planet like volcanoes and other geothermal emissions) on this planet and warms this planet.

And we will give a hint, at one of the key things in the research we have done which is not widely known. There is research done, which shows the temperature range between the high temperature of the day, and the low temperature, before sunrise has gradually been increasing since about 1980. This is more noticeable in Europe versus North America. But then again the temperature data it is based upon is not entirely reliable either.

The main point of this is, is that there is successful cooling, from whatever warming there is in the day. So whatever temperature gains there are during the day, at night that heat is lost. That is a normal process. The heat is simply lost to the deep cold of outer space. There cannot possibly be a global warming condition due to tiny trace gases of CO2 and methane in the atmosphere.

And there is no reason to disbelieve anything we are saying. There are very qualified people, who say the same thing. Tucker Carlson did an interview with Dr. Willie Soon recently , who is essentially saying everything that we are saying. Their website:
https://www.ceres-science.com/team

This website it does not have the information we are talking about, but it just shows the website of the doctor. We will post that interview with the doctor.

And another thing, if there is higher temperatures on the moon, even slightly, now versus many decades ago, then that is also very hard evidence, of increased heat energy from the sun. The most recent mission of the Indians to one of the polar regions on the moon with their probe, has shown much higher temperatures than expected in the polar region.

Somehow in the programming community at some point in the past there was someone or a group of developers who was using improper variable and function and class names at some point in the past with the identifiers foo and bar. Probably for the purpose of an example or something like that. We do not know the origin of that. These are stupid idiotic names.

And then you have, this trend continuing. Programmers then following and honor this kind of nonsense, idiocy and stupidity. This is just simply plain dumb.

And it actually signals, to us, someone who is not confident. And feels they have to associate themselves with what they think is right. It is nothing more than plain stupidity.


Here is such an example:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7843866/achieving-clean-lambda-functions-in-c11

More information:

Why this stupidity continues is not known to us.

And furthermore, Sierra Chart, has a requirement that lamda functions are not used. These make no sense. Functions should only follow a standard syntax.
