I can promise you this is an "Erlang job" (for some reasonable
definition thereof) - the mix of code is about 50/50 C/C++ and Erlang,
with most new parts being developed in Erlang. I spent yesterday
neck-deep in debugging some low-level C, and the day before working on
an issue with Erlang.
Saying that experience with Erlang is a plus just means we don't expect
people to know Erlang before starting, because we need to be realistic
about the size of the pool of people for whom that's the case,
particularly in a place as small as Canberra.
