Hey guys, I've been on this list since 1997, wow, 12 years! Anyways, we've
been desperately trying to find a talented LAMP developers/Linux "admin".
We've got recruiters hunting, but all the candidates are sub-par and it's
wasting a lot of my/our time. It seems that many people CLAIM to be LAMP
devs, but when you actually quiz them, they fail horribly. Or they don't
know their way around a Linux system, if it doesn't have a pretty GUI. So,
I apologize if this is not allowed on the list, but I don't see a "job"
list (http://www.php.net/mailing-lists.php maybe there should be? )

Since I'm going to be working directly with this person, I figured I'd just
take the bull by the horns and post here to find someone with skills
amongst my fellow PHPriends. I'm not a recruiter, just a worker-bee here at
PAC and want to find another developer that I can be sure will take pride
in their work and get things done and not dump it all on my lap. So with
that, here is the job description. If you're in the Bothell, WA (Seattle)
area or the Lake Forest, CA (Irvine/OC) area, and are interested in a
6-month contract to perm job, let me know. BTW, everyone starts as a
contractor here, myself included. It's an easy way to "test" someone and
not have to worry about firing them if they turn out to suck. I was offered
my perm position after only 3 months, as were my two co-workers. This is an
immediate ASAP opening.
