The Reasonableness of HN Job Postings
4 points by VaedaStrike 1575 days ago | hide | past | web | favorite
As I was reading a job opening just tonight on the front page of HN it occurred to me the massive contrast between job offerings from elite ycombinator companies vs the vast majority of other developer/programming and IT job postings I run into virtually anywhere else. The HN postings, though clearly looking for A-listers, sound reasonable, whereas the majority of listings elsewhere are consistently on the verge of, or downright, laughable.

I'm really a noob in programming. The closest to an 'official' tech job I've had, as of yet, is Tech Support for a proprietary Access based application. But even for one so unversed as I am it's obvious as the noon day sun the disconnect between those who know what they are looking for and those who are just shooting for some generic delusion of a star developer.
