I received notice of a Victorian government position offering $106k, as follows, today:
BRMS Developer (WebSphere ILOG JRules)
You will have proven experience as a BRMS Developer within a Java/JEE environment using IBM‘s WebSphere ILOG JRules platform. You will have implementation experience using integration technologies (e.g. Web Services, JMS) and have the ability to liaise with and engage key stakeholders. Ideally you will also have knowledge and/or exposure to IBM‘s WebSphere integration suite (including the MQ Series).
This got a reaction out of me since we’re looking for people (although emphasizing logic, semantics, and English rather than any particular engine). At first, I thought it must be a Java job, but stakeholder engagement indicates this is a full-fledged knowledge engineering position.
$100k for anyone with strong, specific experience seems low. For someone that can understand objectives and translate requirements into operational business logic, it seems lower.
I’m surprised there isn’t more of an Ilog premium, too. JBoss Drools consultants can make more than this.
