NU Online News Service, Feb. 27, 1:17 p.m. – PilotFish Technology L.L.C., Wethersfield, Conn., says it is hiring life insurance technology specialists who can help implement its XMLife Communication Suite.

The PilotFish suite helps life insurers use the new XML standards adopted by the Association for Cooperative Operations Research and Development, Pearl River, N.Y.

XML is a set of rules for developing data-translation schemes. Insurers can use the ACORD XML standards to create systems that draw on data stored in more than one format.

Applicants for the PilotFish jobs should have experience with the life insurance new-business process and familiarity with the ACORD life standards, PilotFish says.

Applicants should also understand XML, Java, Web services applications and the major relational database management systems.
