Hello.  My name is Marianne Dove.  I'm a recruiter for Google.  Google 
currently seeking several Unix experts for a couple of positions in 
Ireland or Mountain View, California.  I ran across your name while I 
conducting a Google search for possible candidates in the hopes of
networking with as many Unix experts as possible.  With your experience 
probable contacts in the Unix community, would you happen to know of 
that may be interested in Engineering positions at Google?  Would you be
interested in this opportunity?

This is such a great opportunity, and Google is seeking the very best
Engineers from around the world and I feel there must be dozens of Unix
experts out there.  I'm hoping I can find some of them through 
with you.  I've attached a few job descriptions.  If you happen to know 
any that may be interested, please feel free to forward this email to 
and have them contact me directly.   I hope you are not bothered by my
networking attempt.  Or if by some streak of fortune on my part, if you 
interested, please let me know.  :-)   Thank you for your consideration

Are you part ace coder, part adrenalin junkie? Do you have a knack for
seeing a problem and immediately discerning the likely solution? Maybe
you've been coding for years, are bored with the old

faster-paced challenges? Or perhaps you're a seasoned software engineer 
is also a genius at jockeying networks and administering UNIX clusters.

Google.com team. Google.com engineers are in the thick of everything
involved with keeping Google running, from code-level troubleshooting of
traffic anomalies to maintenance of our most cutting edge services; from
monitoring and alerts to building new automation infrastructure. We are
aggressively building this elite team of high level engineers in this
mission critical environment. All team members must have strong 
and troubleshooting skills, fluency in coding, good communication 
and most of all enthusiasm for tackling the complex problems of scale 
are uniquely Google. Google.com engineers tackle challenging, novel
situations every day, and work with just about every other engineering 
operations team in the process.

C++, Java, Perl
.BA/BS in CS, or equivalent experience.
