Fellow tech writers,

My company, Artisoft Inc. in Tucson, AZ, is in
dire need of hiring more engineers. If you know
any engineers who may be ready to move on to
warmer climes and to a software company that's
got a great future, please pass this on to
them. Thanks very much!

The pay is good, for Tucson (pay _minimums_ are
shown below; salary is DOE). It may not sound
like much to people who are in big cities, but
the cost of living is low and the quality of
life is high. Tucson is still like a small town
in many ways. Fun-wise, we have fast access to
cool mountains, snow skiing, Mexican beaches,
water skiing, cultural stuff, lotsa music, etc.

Artisoft is well-known for its network product,
LANtastic. We recently acquired two software
companies that we expect to dramatically expand
our income. One makes an excellent modem-sharing
product and the other makes an excellent remote
control product. More acquisitions (and new
applications developed in-house) are coming.
We have a good bonus program.

The engineers work closely with tech writers
and help us produce award-winning docs. FYI, we
have four full-time writers right now (may hire
more later this year -- I'll let you know when
there are openings).

HOW TO APPLY:
Artisoft wants referrals from its employees.
So please send all resumes to me:
1. via e-mail at bstaats -at- artisoft -dot- com
2. via fax at 520-670-7050
3. or by mail:
Elizabeth Staats
Technical Publications Dept.
Artisoft Inc.
