Guys (and gals) this isn't a Senior engineering position. This is a 'junior' or maybe 'intermediate' engineering role.

Trust me, you don't hire someone like this to lead a design, only to do your dirty work..

you can bet Rim is far ahead in this game, simply filling in the ranks at this point. THis person will be part of the camera development team, which is likely fully established if the 'rumoured device' (see other posts) is true.

They already made the device. There's a whole forum on this board dedicated to it.

I agree with the above poster that this is a "grunt" level position.
