Job ad

We need a few more "can do it all" types at our company. I struggle with how to list these positions, because not all of the skills are required, but we need a few specializing generalists or generalizing specialists or what have you. I read "Hiring Technical People" (the book and the blog), but it's still not easy. Anyway- we are still making our stock plan available to people hired in 2008, so if you know anyone that is looking...we've got a smart team. If anyone wants to point out obvious errors or inconsistencies in the technology laundry list, it would be greatly appreciated, as I don't know all of this stuff.

Wow, sounds like a very nice job, for me. Except the fact that I am not a US citizen and resides in the part of the world known as Scandinavia:( Any chance of working from a home-office 80% of the time? :) Or a better question, are you looking for people in the European market or are you a US-only company now and in the future?

sorry anon. we are a US-only company for now (one market at a time!). However, I'd personally love to spend some time in Scandanavia, so I'm open to going that way, if anything does pop up.

Is this a permanent position, or contract?

Is the location required to be VA, or is Chicago close enough? :)

Matt M said...

A permanent position is on offer, although many of the job duties relate to a contract we have.

Chicago is alas too far at this point, but we would like to virtualize some of this in the future.
