Hi Again!
If you identify yourself in this role, please feel free to reach out to me
for more info... I don't so much care for a resume just yet, unless if you
are compelled to send it. Rather, I would love to learn more about you to
see if we have a match!

This is a great opportunity for a Hot Start-Up (many say the hottest on
this coast). Recognized name in 'micro-blogging', well backed by VC's,
already ranking top 20 world-wide in internet traffic (~ 5 Years since
creation). Slated for an IPO in the foreseeable future.

Great opportunity for a competetive Base + Equity (options).

If you see yourself in this role, let's talk!
To narrow it down, this requires someone from a high-traffic website or
start-up, experienced in an outward facing website but to work on back-end
services in helping to scale, optimize performance, and much much more
while leveraging some really cool, new open source technologies.
Relevant Skills: Ruby, PHP, C, Expert Core Java or C++ will be considered
also, complemented with a NoSQL DB, and Popular Big Data/Open Source Stacks
are appealing as well.
