Programming Languages

I was looking at the job requirements for some of the jobs at Dwave, the quantum computing company. For a software engineer they want someone that has experience with C and Python. Does that exist? I thought those things were mutually exclusive. Besides that fact they have the typically computer/hardware/software engineer requirements, i.e. we only want people skilled in every platform and every language in existence. haha, I thought people stopped asking for that.

Be able to write device drivers for Linux, check, Windows? WTF?
Experience with internet protocols, check, and RS485? WTF?

Don't worry I am not applying I just thought the requirements are kind of _out_ there.
