    Hi Peter, are you gonna apply? 😉

    Carlos, I know some people that even want to move to work for Macromedia! Serious though, we currently do have two great technical sales people in Spain and we would love to grow to more, maybe in the future?

  4. Peter says:

    lol Waldo, not sure if I’m in with much of a chance 😉

    I’ll certainly give it some thought, there aren’t too many Macromedia job opening in Europe so I might as well give it a shot some time.

  5. That would be great Waldo! 🙂 .

    Wish to hear from MM that there’s a bit more “aggressive” strategy here in Spain so Flex could take off at the enterprise…IMHO, nowadays MM presence is very low and there’s too virgin field to explore here.

  6. Nice to see a RIA role come up for the UK and North Europe, if the role could be run from the UK I might give it a shot !

  7. Waldo Smeets says:

    It is from the UK (actually the great Bracknell ;-)), so go ahead and give it a try!
