Good Morning,
I must apologize for the mixed signals from the limited job description I
sent out yesterday. Moving forward, please trust that these are viable and
top-tier clients of mine, and they hire my services to find them technical
experts in their respective fields. Please read on for
further clarifications below.

1.) The title of the job is: Core Applications Engineer <~ This is not a
Sys Admin role- It's more development with systems engineering
Notice: Web development, and Back-End Developer are near the top of the
Also, the role is in NYC.

2.) To be a little more forthcoming, just over the weekend, I placed the
Director of Search Infrastructure for this client, and can speak from
direct experience that these people are in the next phase in turning a
corner towards profitability, increase in valuation, and exploring
additional, unique revenue streams. Still, their valuation is close to a
Billion while they are still operating pretty lean (just about 100
employees). This is the perfect time to get into the action to gain some
equity stake...

3.) The aforementioned hot start-up  is Tumblr. I'm hoping many of you have
tracked its exponential growth...

On a side note, I'm pretty blind to the skills each person
specifically employs. I understand the binding fabric would be BSD Unix,
but from the people I have spoken with thus far, the group is diverse in
their environments and job functions. I am looking forward to the next
event to take the opportunity to meet, and understand my audience. Maybe
that's why I'm not hitting the right notes- just yet!

Thank You!
