10/04/07 USA Technologies becomes a PPW Community Sponsor

The Pittsburgh Perl workshop is pleased to announce that USA Technologies has agreed to sponsor PPW at the Community Sponsor level.

USA Technologies is recognized as a leader in wireless networking, cashless transaction, asset monitoring, and energy management services. USA Technologies' provides embedded network technology and associated networking services for everyday devices such as vending machines, kiosks, and office equipment using e-Port, Energy Management, Business Express, eSuds, and Sony PictureStation product lines. This technology is built on a thin-client architecture, where centralized processing, storage, and applications occur on a remote server rather then at each end point. This client model has enabled the Company to network a wide variety of everyday devices, such as vending machines and commercial washers and dryers.

The company's customers include some of the world's strongest brands such as Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Marriott Hotels, Sony Electronics, Canteen, Blackboard, and Aramark. Others include Best Western, Promus Hotel Corporation (Doubletree, Red Lion, Hampton, Embassy Suites) and Holiday Inn.

USA Technologies uses Perl at the heart of its data gateway system to process and route millions of financial credit and other data transactions a month. Our network is growing rapidly, so we're currently looking for a few talented software developers to help expand our data processing systems. If you have an interest and experience in financial transaction processing, web services, multi-threaded and event-driven models, distributed message-oriented networking, and/or high-availability architectures, and have a strong background in OO Perl development (Java experience is a plus), please contact us.

Time to become a sponsor is limited! Please see our sponsors page for more information.
