Adobe is hiring! (Mac users need not apply)
Incensed, Adobe developer Jim Dowdell tweeted thusly...
I know that a number of good people work at Apple. If you're seeking a more ethical company, Adobe is hiring: adobe.com/aboutadobe/careeropp
Really? Gosh—let's go and have a look at the recruitment page that Jim is pointing those Apple developers to, shall we? Hang on, what's this...? [Emphasis mine.]
Adobe has a new talent acquisition system. This system is optimized for performance on IE 6 or IE 7, running on Windows XP. Unfortunately it is not supported on Firefox, nor is it supported on a Mac at this time.
Way to go, Adobe! Here's a software development company whose "talent acquisition system" software, apparently, doesn't even work on standards-based browsers.
Further, a developer at Adobe—a company which was started by ex-Apple employees and became a big company through, initially, selling Mac-only software—is urging Apple employees to apply for jobs through a system that doesn't support Macs.
Nice one, Jim, you moron.
DISCLAIMER: I own an insignificant number of Apple shares—currently sitting at $241.79...
