Please lead with the positions' locations.

SSi Micro is hiring great hackers. Are you smart, motivated, and interested in working on awesome software optimized for our world-class, unique, and super-cool satellite network? Then come and be a propellerhead at our awesome, small company.


We're a little company based in Yellowknife, the capital city of the Northwest Territories. We deliver broadband satellite internet to 61 of the most remote communities on earth, and now that our network's up and running (although we're investing heavily in upgrading it), we're busy building great software for our customers, optimized specifically for our unique network.

Right now, we're building a file sharing webapp called Qfile. (Check it out: http://qfile.ca -- Free 60 day trial!). Why not just use dropbox, you ask? Well, our network is pretty unique: all our traffic is bounced off a satellite, and round-trip latency of ~600ms (which is because of the horrible limitation of the speed of light, which we are constantly working to exceed) means that we have to do things a little differently. SSi is so cool that when we won a government contract to do "time-shifted file transfers", we decided that we /could/ meet our contractual obligations with a few weeks of work/testing, but instead we're building a wicked webapp that brings the functionality to everyone on our network, not just big clients with IT departments.

Yellowknife's not as cold as you think, and the 24-hours-of-daylight summers are not to be missed.

If you're interested and game, we'll make an offer really easy to accept: We'll get and pay for your apartment, a car if you need it, and pay you atop that. We'll do all that for up to three months while you evaluate us and the north, so that it's risk- and hassle-free for you to come to a really great, unique company in an awesome little city.

Email: stephenw@ssimicro.com

Holy crap, what is the story behind making a start up in Yellowknife?

We're not really a startup, though we are small and dynamic enough that it feels like it. (It also feels like it because we're Daviding the Goliath incumbent telco up here, and we're kicking their slow, lazy, outmoded asses.)

Our founder (and current president and CTO) started off selling Gateway computers to Northern clients from a little shop in a town near the Knife called Fort Providence. Fifteen-odd years later we're pounding out wicked code that runs on our state-of-the-art satellite network. Lots of hard work from lots of smart people made this happen.

Which is because of the horrible limitation of the speed of light, which we are constantly working to exceed ;)

That sounds awesome. Is it hard for you guys to hire Americans? Are there lots of immigration issues?

Thanks to NAFTA it's relatively easy for citizens of the United States and Mexico to obtain temporary work permits if you have a profession on this list [1] and the credentials to back it up. This includes "Computer System Analyst" and "Engineer".

[1] http://www.nafta-sec-alena.org/en/view.aspx?x=343&mtpiID...

Sorry for the lateness of this reply. We've hired international hackers before and dealt with the long immigration process. Our philosophy is we'll do whatever's necessary to get great people on board, and as stated in this thread, the TN visa should make hiring Americans easy, though we've never done that. (I have interned at two American companies and that visa process was relatively painless, which bodes well.)

It's really difficult to try to interest people (software people in general) in working way up North here, so we're not too choosy about where they come from or what their background is, so long as they're bright, motivated, and interested in kicking ass. :)

If an American wanted to work long term at your company, is there a path to Canadian citizenship?

By the way, do Canadian companies provide health insurance? I keep hearing how good the government health care is in Canada, I'm curious how employers handle that.

You have to live in Canada as a perm resident for like 3 years to be able to apply for citizenship. They also don't force you to renounce your US citizenship, so you can be a dual-citizen. So far as the US is concerned, recognition of dual-citizenship status is the purview of the State Department (i.e. IIRC, there are no laws about it, so they can choose how they want to treat your dual-citizenship status as a matter of policy or on a case-by-case basis).

Mountain View, CA. RethinkDB (http://www.rethinkdb.com/jobs).

Hard systems problems. Fun people. Good pay. A chance to build something meaningful and own a significant chunk of the company. Tired of rails-based clones? Join us, together we will rule the [database] universe.

This is everything we stand for: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1747713

Hard systems problems. Fun people. Good pay. A chance to build something meaningful and own a significant chunk of the company. Tired of rails-based clones? Join us, together we will rule the [database] universe.

Judging by the fact that it has been over a year since the most recent code on the RethinkDB website was released, you might want to add "take the time to solve problems properly rather than throwing together quick hacks" to this list. ;-)

(To be clear, I think taking the time to solve problems properly is a good thing -- I spent two years writing code before Tarsnap moved into public beta -- but it's a philosophy which seems to run contrary to the general standard operating principles of the startup world.)

It does, but in both cases the products are something that need to be executed right or risk losing customer data. So a bit harder to release a database more often if your not just tinkering with new concepts and want to be taken seriously.

from your license agreement (http://www.rethinkdb.com/license.txt)

Prohibited activities include but are not limited to:


* Selling support for products which incorporate RethinkDB.

Can you really enforce this?

I doubt they could enforce a prohibition on companies providing support for RethinkDB; but I see no reason why they couldn't say "if you provide support for RethinkDB, you're not allowed to use our code", which is probably equivalent in practice.

God I'm rooting for someone to sink the Oracle behemoth.

I thought it was MySql... guess not.

Good luck to you guys.

San Francisco!

Airbnb is hiring - I think we have around 50 openings at this point. http://www.airbnb.com/jobs. Regardless of the position, we just want hungry, smart, and awesome people.

For engineers, we wrote a blog post 2 days ago explaining some of our most interesting challenges - http://blog.airbnb.com/hard-problems-big-opportunity

In particular, we need some front end engineers!! http://www.airbnb.com/jobs/position?jvi=omNoVfwc Email me directly if you are a badass front end engineer and like mustaches & ridiculous sunglasses - chris@airbnb.com

Holy crap...had no idea you guys were growing so fast. Congrats!

PS - Had a fantastic experience with AirBnB in London a few months ago when our hotel fell through at last minute. Posted emergency request and had a bunch of offers within an hour. Ended up staying with a very nice older British lady who made us breakfast and afternoon tea every day. Very fun.

Will be applying soon. You guys sound like an awesome company and I'd love to join you and contribute my own awesomeness :)

I am actually in the process of writing an application for Airbnb. However, I am unsure about one important detail: Are you accepting applicants without a US working visa? (But who are willing to travel to the US as much as a tourist visa allows)

Just sent my portfolio off. Best wishes to your great company!

Does it sound like I need to hire someone to help me? Yeah, it's a fucking chicken-and-egg problem. :)

As always, please let potential applicants know whether telecommuting is an option - if not, don't forget to include your location.

A note about work visas would also be useful.

Academia.edu is hiring engineers in San Francisco.

Academia.edu helps academics follow the latest research in their field. Here are a few bullet points that sum up the atmosphere in our team:

- obsession with exceptional engineering

- obsession with building a great web product, and a great user experience

- intellectually inquisitive - we like delving into ideas, whatever the ideas are about

- fun and friendly - we enjoy each other's company a lot, and have a great deal of respect for each other.

We want to continue this atmosphere through the people we hire.

Here are some of the technologies we work with: Rails, Nginx, Node.js, Redis, Memcached. We are based in downtown San Francisco. More information about the team, and about how we think about software engineering and product development, is here http://academia.edu/hiring

How did you get a *.edu domain?

Most likely that they bought it (in 2007?) from someone that registered it before 29 Oct 2001.

From http://net.educause.edu/edudomain/eligibility.asp :

"Why do some institutions that do not meet the eligibility criteria have .edu domain names?

According to the Cooperative Agreement between EDUCAUSE and the U.S. Department of Commerce, all .edu names in existence as of October 29, 2001, are "grandfathered." This means that everyone who already had a .edu name by that date (October 29, 2001), regardless of current or past eligibility requirements, is allowed to keep those .edu names."

Whois info:

  Domain record activated:    10-May-1999
  Domain record last updated: 03-Sep-2007
  Domain expires:             31-Jul-2011

Los Angeles, CA - SpaceX

Our team is looking for 2 more developers to help us build SpaceX's enterprise and manufacturing systems. We primarily use C# but experience in OOP languages such as Java or Ruby is just fine.

We offer excellent benefits, pre-IPO stock, and free yogurt everyday =)

Drop me a line at paulo[at]spacex[dot]com if interested.

I have zero connection to these people.

But let me say, forget all the web X.0/ruby/nosql rubbish. Working at spaceX seems like the sort of place you'll be telling your grandchildren about. Quora? Groupon? Not so much.

I mean, they build spaceships. Fucking spaceships.

Very interesting, but US citizens and permanent residents only.

People, please mention if remote working is an option or not.

I think you can assume it's not unless mentioned explicitly.

Currently we are only looking for local or willing to relocate. I'll send ya a mail though.

Web Engineer -- New York, NY


We're looking for a generalist web engineer who is super-hungry and sees building web apps as more than just a job. We're a data-driven web app that's trying to use analytics and exceptional UX to making buying event tickets a wholly better experience. #Python #PHP #MySQL #MongoDB #Javascript

Competitive comp, outstanding benefits, and a team that has a lot of fun together.

Only looking for folks in NYC. Drop us a line at jobs@seatgeek.com if you'd like to chat.

I'd be interested in how many postings in these hacker news job threads end up in hires, or at least candidates applying.

I found a job from the September 2010 thread.

Ann Arbor, MI: proud home of the University of Michigan, techbrewery.org, a2newtech.org, a2geeks.org, ARBSEC.org, etc. And Zingermans (accurately described by tptacek as a culinary "force of nature")!

Scio Security is solving the most important problem in computer security today - the explosion in online account theft and transaction fraud driven by phishing and crimeware.

We're an Ann Arbor startup founded by Arbor Networks [1], Barracuda Networks [2], and Zattoo [3] founders and alumni, backed by True Ventures [4]. Other stuff we'll take blame for: public breaks of the world's leading firewall, IDS, anti-virus, virtualization, and state censorship (!) products; Google's first Android remote kill; dsniff; Linux NFSv4; OpenSSH (man ssh :-); returning tptacek to the Midwest in '01 :-)

Right now it's just three of us with $1M to pit against the international cybercrime syndicates of the world. We're looking for a frontend hacker with web/mobile UI/UX chops and deep design/brand thinking to be our fourth, and always happy to meet excellent app and backend folks.

We'd love to hear from you at jobs@sciosecurity.com - or ping dugsong or jonoberheide on freenode/Twitter/FB...

[1] $100M+ revenue before we sold it this year :-)

[2] biggest content security appliance vendor by volume, with airport ads out the wazoo

[3] 0.5 -> 5M+ subscribers in 18 months

[4] 3rd top-ranked on TheFunded, investors in Wordpress, Urban Airship, Puppet Labs, Meebo, etc.

I'm looking for:

  1) talented information visualization experts (protovis,
  raphaeljs, flash/flex/actionscript, HTML5 strategies)
  who are comfortable working with large scale data

  2) anyone fluent with large scale data mining with
  Mahout (hadoop, hdfs, clustering strategies, SVD,

fastest growing startup in atlanta. full benefits will relocate appropriately talented individuals. US Citizens only (sorry).

proven management team with multiple successful startup exits (over $2B). earle {dot} ady {at} gmail {dot} com

I can vouch for earle. Worked with him in the past.

Hey are you the guy who just moved to SF from Atlanta and wrote a blog post about it? I like your post!

Haha yes that's me :)

I haven't done much visualization of large datasets, but I've always loved interactive visualizations. Check out my logo on my site: http://jlongster.com . Email me if you think I could help you all.

if you don't mind, why are you limiting to US citizens?

Assuming he's not trying to become the target of a lawsuit, "US citizens only" is a euphemism for "we're doing government work and you'll need to have a security clearance".

I think the euphemism is the other way around to: (1) remain legal, and (b) not sound discriminatory.

Conshohocken, PA - Monetate

We have fun problems at scale - real-time decision making plus web analytics. We have hired people from HN before and I will go hound them to post about how much fun we are having. :)

We sell SAAS to internet retailers allowing them to test site content, target to visitor segments, and personalize web experiences.

Currently hiring for positions here: http://monetate.com/about/jobs/ - product engineers, front-end developers, QA, sys ops

Stanford, CA. Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research, National Center for Biomedical Ontology.

We're hiring people interested in working with semantic web technologies, including RDF, OWL/OBO ontologies, triple stores, Protege, etc. The positions are mainly senior right now, possibly junior in the near future. Our main product is BioPortal, an ontology repository site with a RESTful API.

Stanford is an amazing place to work, great benefits, competitive salary, and the team here is top-notch (as you would expect). Feel free to ask questions (email in profile).

Apply online: http://bit.ly/9HBcMB

Edit: no telecommute (Stanford policy I believe)

Palo Alto, CA - Quora


We're looking for designers and engineers.

- Codebase is mostly Python, JS, and C++

- Real continuous deployment (every git push deploys the new version of the code if all the test pass)

- Product w/ traction that is growing quickly

- Hard problems to work hard on

- Smart people to work with and learn from ( http://www.quora.com/about/team )

jobs@quora.com or e-mail me directly at ccheever@quora.com

If you don't mind sharing, how do you manage coordinating necessary schema changes with those continuous code deployments? (Yes, I am assuming an RDBM store and not a pure NoSQL store).

For the most part, schema changes can be done without breaking the existing code base (add columns, add tables, etc.) These schema changes can just be run on the databases before the code depending on it is pushed. Much more rarely though, there might be code that depends on a certain schema (the kind that say, alter table might do). In this case we can push out code that is compatible with both versions (at the very worst case, using table descriptions to differentiate between the two), run the schema change, and then eliminate the backwards compatibility.

There's not that much different in terms of operating procedure between continuous code deployment and scheduled code deployments; it's just much faster and less prone to merge errors.

From reading your about page, it sounds like you guys should buy these guys: http://www.xmarks.com (see http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1733941) :)

While I do hope someone buys Xmarks or othewise keeps the service alive, what synergy/ies would they have with Quora?

NYC - Factor Tree (http://thefactortree.com)

We're a young startup creating an online education platform designed to build a solid foundation in math for kids from preK to 6th grade. We're working on some cool ways to provide every student with a tailored curriculum that adapts as the student progresses.

We're looking for someone who's comfortable in Java (or very similar language) and has a good foundation in web development. You'd be working closely with the lead (only) developer to iterate as fast as humanly possible to put our product in front of kids and parents.

If you're passionate about helping kids learn, send over a few links to things you've worked on (more important) and your resume (less important) to recruiting@thefactortree.com.

Anywhere. Intridea is still looking for people for consulting gigs in Rails and mobile stuff (iPhone and Android!). We're 100% remote, so you live where you'd like and have a sweet, sweet, job.

Groupon is looking to hire designers, frontend developers and more in Chicago, Illinois. http://www.groupon.com/jobs

Big Think, NYC or remote


Email jonah at bigthink.com

Big Think is an online forum where experts at the top of their fields engage with the public about the critical questions of our time. Over the past two years, we've published interviews with 1,500 luminaries from Ted Kennedy and Ricky Gervais to Stephen Hawking and Jason Fried. Now, we're overhauling our web site, introducing new kinds of content, and expanding to TV and mobile devices. We're searching for a top-notch programmer to help make this evolution possible.

As part of a small, fast-moving, and experienced team, you'll conceive and create features across Big Think, from our web and mobile front-ends to the search system to a back-end that connects to an array of services. You may be called upon to improve the load-balancer; support the production team with a script; or design and implement a significant new feature-set. The ideal candidate will possess the flexibility and broad technical knowledge to fill all these roles plus deep proficiency in Ruby, JavaScript, HTML, object-oriented design, and web-scale architecture.

The job is initially part-time, but we hope to find someone with interest in joining us as a full-time employee in the future. You may work at our office near Union Square in Manhattan or in your own space—in New York or elsewhere.

In a recent interview, Mark Zuckerberg said he couldn't think of another company where each engineer is responsible for 1,000,000 unique users. Big Think is such a company. When you join us, you'll not only have fun building great products; you'll also have a tremendous impact on the world.

Providence, RI. Swipely (http://swipely.com/jobs)

Now hiring back-end (mostly Ruby on Rails) and front-end (jQuery/HTML/CSS) developers.

Swipely is part social network, part financial application, and part gaming platform, and we have plenty of interesting problems to work on in all those areas and more. This is hands-down the strongest engineering team I've worked with. We work in weekly iterations and push new code to production at least once per iteration. Though not a strict requirement, we have a strong preference for full-time employees who can work out of our office in Providence.

Our perks blurb: "Swipely offers competitive salaries and full benefits, similar to "big" companies. We also offer everyone equity in the company, to share in Swipely's long-term success. Our kitchen is stocked at all times with free drinks and snacks. Lunch is catered every day from a nearby sandwich shop, and we even keep a dedicated fridge stocked with craft beers from around the globe. We want you to have the best tools for the job, so the Macbook Pros are fast, the Internet pipes are fat and the screen pixels are unlimited. Go for it!"

SnapBill (South Africa) is hiring developers, preferably local but remote is good too :)

Interesting, programming language?

Its written in PHP, but I have a feeling thats holding us back from getting top developers which is why I declined to mention it.

Its a lot more about the framework than the language (I believe) and, together with the framework, we're using PHP quite effectively to produce our software.

I'm feeling extremely adventurous, geographically. What is relocating to South Africa like for US citizens?

Forward Internet Group in London, UK: http://www.forward.co.uk

We're a young entrepreneurial company that bootstrapped its way from its founder bedroom to a 150-strong company with very healthy profits in 6 years without any external capital. We have been doubling our revenues every single year (up to £100m in 2010) and plan to continue to do it as long as possible. So, we need great people.

We're looking for great developers to work on a variety of exciting online projects. We use Closure, Ruby, Hadoop, Node.js, Sinatra etc.

Above all we're looking for smart, ambitious, entrepreneurial people. Full job spec is here: http://www.forward.co.uk/careers

And it's fun to work here: you choose the hardware you want, you buy the books you need, the hours are flexible, no dress code, the people are reasonable and the entertainment budget is generous: for example the entire company hangs out in Las Vegas night clubs and casinos for 4 days every December and we've just returned from Disneyland in Paris (birthday celebrations).

To find out more email me at evgeny.shadchnev@forward.co.uk with your CV.

At Mandalorian (http://www.mandalorian.com/) we have a bunch of positions open at the moment. We're based in Reading, UK but some of the roles are home based with occasional office days. Expect to go through some form of government clearance regardless of the role, and sadly the pen test and anti-malware roles are available to UK nationals only for security reasons:

1. We need a Sales Executive to work with our growing team selling information assurance consultancy services and helping to launch a brand new service in the advanced antimalware space.

2. We need a penetration tester with CHECK, Tigerscheme or CREST certification equivalent to CTL to join our pentest team, with opportunity to cross over into...

3. Anti-malware analyst and investigator. Using advanced network and memory forensics tools and techniques, you'll be reverse engineering malicious and non-malicious code and tracking and eliminating threats from the conventional to potentially state sponsored targeted attacks.

4. Python/Django developer to work on some internal projects relating to security testing and malware.

Orlando, Florida - IZEA, Inc. - Senior Ruby Developer


Izea is a really fun place to work, and you'd be working with a team of other ruby developers integrating with lots of well known systems (Twitter, Wordpress, Blogger, Oauth, etc).

Sites you'd be working on:

http://sponsoredtweets.com http://socialspark.com http://payperpost.com http://wereward.com (and iPhone app!) http://inpostlinks.com http://izea.com

We're only hiring locally, but we're doing the whole "we'll help with your relocation expenses", so if you're a Ruby dev who is interested in moving to Orlando, please apply!

Newco, stealth mode well-funded NYC startup with lots of runway. Huge opportunity to join a small team building a very busy gamechanging consumer Web app. Hiring several developers. No legacy code- build this from scratch with us! RoR/jQuery front end, Scala for the heavy lifting and API.

They just rented out a movie theater (alamo drafthouse) for all of us to see the Social Network.

Also it's a cool company. http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2010/10/01/bazaarvoice-ramps-up-...

Sacramento, CA - Klicknation

We make games. On Facebook. But they're deeper and more interesting than other Facebook games, because we're gamers and we're not afraid to admit it. Our games were the first to feature animated battles, and we think they're still the best :)

Also, we're profitable, and not VC funded.

We've got two relatively successful Facebook games out, and we're always working on more. We've got some developers from some well known and established web startups, as well as artists who have worked with Marvel and D.C.

http://apps.facebook.com/ageofchampions/ http://apps.facebook.com/superherocity/

We're looking for developers. Must love games.


Looks like folks are being more specific, so I'll clarify:

We're looking for really solid PHP/Ruby/Python developers. Right now a lot of our server-side code is in PHP, but we've been writing a lot of stuff recently in Ruby, Python, and even a bit of Java.

Experience with scale is a major plus - we've got a lot of interesting scale problems and we're trying to be creative about solving them, including using a lot of Redis.

We're also looking for people who either have AS3 experience OR rockstars with 'traditional' game development experience (C/C++/Lua/whatever) - we've got two Flash rockstars already and they both knew zero about it when they started.

Also, if you're a master of CSS, we need you as well.

At Klicknation, you'll spec new features on Monday and launch them on Thursday. You'll have a lot of fun, but you'll be held to high standards and you'll learn a lot.

Our new NYC startup jumpkick is seeking Rails developers to work remotely with our team on some outstanding tickets and ongoing efforts to help us get to Beta in coming months.

Must have strong experience in large consumer facing data driven sites, especially those with social components, matching algorithms, recommendation engines, NLP i.e. dating sites, social networks, pandora, linkedin, etc.. We're building something special. It's also in Rails 3.

Ryan@MagnetAgency.net for more info.

I should also point out that Magnet Agency, our next gen recruiting company, has gobs of opportunities all the time for NYC talent in development, product management, sales and marketing and we do alot of exec search. We don't work with BS companies, every client is a killer tech startup or top agency/media brand we'd work at ourselves.

Stealth-mode startup with solid funding. Currently have a team of 8 in the US and 4 in Europe. Looking for solid engineers in the LA area (telecommuting not an option, sorry). Experience building social networks or mobile development a plus (iOS or Android), but really just looking for solid engineers who fit with our small team. We aim to exit stealth by next summer.

Email questions to jaaronfarr [at] gmail.com

Unfortunately any important details require an NDA. Some people involved have been burned by early disclosure in the past, so we're playing it extra safe this time. And no, it isn't a social network, we just happen to have some typical social network features in the roadmap.

We are experienced hardware and software engineers in LA with many products and start-ups under our belts. Let us know if we can be of help. We have no problem signing NDAs.

Toronto, Canada - Java Developer - Alpha Group

New York, NY (remote not an option, sorry): foursquare


We're hiring server engineers, operations engineers, and mobile engineers.

Our backend is built with Scala, Lift, and some Python. Our main datastore is MongoDB, but we have some stuff on Postgres. We're hosted entirely on EC2. We develop mobile clients for the iPhone, Android, and Blackberry.

We're a location-based social network that's changing how people interact with physical space. We've got a lot of exciting projects we want to work on, and we need all the help we can get.

Email: jorge@foursquare.com

This sounds very neat! I dabble in Lift and Scala, and I think a job working/hacking on that would be awesome - unfortunately I don't think I'm qualified quite yet.

Could you define server and operations?

Server engineer is very broad. Could be anywhere on the stack from front-end work with HTML/CSS/JS to very deep in the guts of our application code working on performance and scalability, or anywhere in between. Job description: http://foursquare.jobscore.com/jobs/foursquare/server-side-s...

Operations engineer would be focused less on our application code and more on managing our EC2 infrastructure. Anywhere from improving our deployment process to thinking about security, reliability, and performance to managing our databases to tracking key system metrics. Job description: http://foursquare.jobscore.com/jobs/foursquare/operations-en...

From what I can tell, you've melded a backend and frontend dev for the server engineer role. Thanks for your time, but you require a degree, so I'm out.

I'm with you on this. I don't understand why companies limit themselves to people with degrees. It's not like half the good (a relative term, I know) developers haven't dropped out to do awesome things anyhow.

I'm pretty happy my company - SeatGeek, we're hiring full-time devs, see jack7890's post - is understanding of my wish to complete my education. Hopefully you can find a similar placement somewhere :)

I've got an offer to extend my 3 month contract with a pretty nice startup about to land in my inbox within a week, so I don't really need a job, (I have plenty of savings anyway), but I like to shop around and keep my eyes open.

Finishing my education is what I did when MIT OCW put their course material for computer science, electrical engineering, linguistics, philosophy, and culture online.

I use degree requirements as an anti-indicator for companies. If they're requiring the piece of paper, I know that I'd be punishing myself to go work for them anyway.

I'll take a look at SeatGeek's post. :)

The title is melded. Your role is whatever your best fit is. We have "server engineers" that do frontend dev almost exclusively, others that do backend dev almost exclusively, and others that do a bit of both.

We've hired people without degrees, and we've hired people without 5+ years experience. If you're good, we'll bend the rules.

The clarification is appreciated.

Work on back end of customized fashion platform. Lots of interesting and challenging problems. Posting here: http://www.fashionplaytes.com/content/jobs Send me your resume: gsam@fashionplaytes.com

Confused - this looks suspiciously like the craigslist ad that says this is a 3-6 month contract. I'm also getting calls from headhunters saying this is a 6 month contract.

Well I sent you my resume twice and a bulleted list of how there might be a good fit, which in my experience would at least get some response, but I've gotten nothing, so either I'm not up to your standards, which is perfectly reasonable, or you have faulty lines of communication you might want to look into.
