This is just a quick note to point out that my company, innoQ, is currently looking for talented individuals to do SOA, MDD/MDA, and general J2EE & .NET consulting. While we have some projects where being able to speak German fluently is not a prerequisite and fluency in English is sufficient, all of our current customer projects are located in Germany (mostly in the Rhine/Ruhr area) or Switzerland (in or near Zurich) and thus require a valid work permit for those countries. Just drop us an email if you are interested or simply would like to find out more beforehand.
(I thought about including the text in German, as well, but as some knowledge in English is expected anyway, why bother. Feel free to contact us in German, though.)
