Resourcesoft is hiring programmers, but don't bother applying unless you are an H-1B or an Indian national. In the first job ad (see below) they are seeking an "H1B Java" programmer. Just in case someone mistakenly thinks that "H1B Java" is a variant or a new version of Java (like Java 1.0), Resourcesoft further stipulates that the ideal candidate should have "an Indian Passport that is valid for at least 5 years".

In the second job ad, which appeared last January, Resourcesoft says that they are: "currently hiring qualified candidates to come and work for us on an H1B Visa in our USA office. Resourcesoft, Inc. will work with the right candidates to sponsor their work permits." Just in case a few naive American programmers didn't get the hint, or didn't read that passage, they ask applicants to mail their resumes to:  h1bhire@resourcesoft.com.

It's interesting to note that the Resourcesoft website has job openings but none of them, at the time of this writing, contains Indian ethnocentric verbiage similar to their ads on Dice and other websites. Emails, when provided are usually something like h1bhire@resourcesoft.com. At the bottom of each job ad there is a statement that says: "Resourcesoft, Inc is an Equal Opportunity Employer".

Excluding everyone but Indian nationals hasn't seemed to hurt Resourcesoft in terms of reputation or business. If anything it has helped the company because they were able to get certified as Minority and Woman-Owned Business Enterprise and Small Business Enterprise (MBE/WBE/WOB/SBE). This certification program is used to put women and minority owned businesses at the front of the line when lucrative city, state and federal government contracts are doled out.

Resourcesoft is widely acclaimed in Massachusetts. The Worcester Business Journal Online rated the company #3 in the area for "Top Women-Owned Businesses" ranked by number of local employees (97 employees and $32 million in revenue). The Mass High Tech Journal praises CEO Anita Rana as "a major player in women-owned IT services companies."

If all of this wasn't nauseating enough, in January the Mass High Tech Journal will honor Anita Rana as one of the top ten "women in 2009 to Watch". The cost to attend is $95 and it will be held on March 12, 2009. Corporate tables for 10 will cost you $1,300 and that includes premium seating.

Oh well, happy 2009!
