Hello all,

we’re looking for somebody to assist us in the elaboration ofdocumentation around OSSIM, it’s components and Open Source Securityin general. We require strong knowledge both in English written skillsas well as experience on OSSIM. We are willing to pay on a per-workbasis up to 3000 or 4000 . a month, with an option to get a permanentcontract if the initial work is satisfying.

I don’t want to sound harsh, but the two aforementioned requirementsare a must and a strong filter. The english has to be perfect (muchbetter than mine of course :-) ) and knowledge of OSSIM has to bedeep, based on interest and/or experience already present beforereading this job offering. I mean, even if your english is perfectdon’t try to download OSSIM, check out a couple of things and apply, orif you know lots and lots about OSSIM don’t start with an intensiveenglish course.

If you’re interested we’d like you to send in a sample of your workalong with a curriculum vitae. We don’t care about your nationality orwhere you are located. the payment will remain the same of course. Thesample we’re asking for would be to document the current alarm section(Incidents->Alarms). Think about a user that’s new to OSSIM, clicks onthe help in order to see what that alarm panel means and gets to thatdocument you’ve written. The desired document format would be pdf,although when documentation gets live some sort of wiki is going to beused. Remember, there are three things that should excel in thissample:

  • We should raise our eyebrows in awe at your english written skills.
  • We should be impressed by the deep knowledge of OSSIM that we cansee in those words.
  • On the other hand, this is no technical document, it should be clearfor a new OSSIM user with little or no previous SIEM experience.

Please send this sample to “jcasal” and “dk”, both at domain. If you include “OSSIM Documentation Writer” inthe subject you’ll ensure it will reach us asap :-).

Good luck!
