IBM job ad calls for 12 years' experience with Kubernetes - which is six years old

IBM t Global Technology Services has posted a job ad calling for candidates with a "Minimum 12+ years' experience in Kubernetes administration and management".

Which is a little odd because the first GitHub commit for the project was made on June 7th, 2014. And the feature freeze for version 1.0 was announced on May 22nd, 2015.

Sharp-minded Reg readers will have recognised that - absent time travel - it is therefore not possible for anyone to have 12 years' experience with Kubernetes.

The ad is sadly silent on just how IBM expects candidates will have found the time to accumulate a dozen years' experience in a six-year-old project.

At least IBM is not alone in making such a silly mistake: developer Sebastián Ramírez, who created FastAPI and Typer, recently shared a similar experience on Twitter.

Ramírez's post sparked a vivid conversation about similarly silly job ads, and unfortunately dopey candidates for tech jobs.

If you've ever spotted a daft job ad, or been asked something especially silly in an interview, feel free to write to me and maybe we'll get some more laughs from this situation. ®
