[OCLUG-Tech] Open source experts needed

Hi, please let me know if you know anyone good for this, and/or pass it
on. Thanks.

Two Software Engineers Needed Immediately!

Cirrus Computing develops and hosts open source cloud computing
solutions in Ottawa. We have gone from startup to paying customers, just
completed a funding round, and need two software experts to join our
team immediately. Salary, stock options, and a cash signing bonus will
be provided for both positions. 

What do we do? We've integrated three levels of the cloud stack, and
provide it to organizations in a low-cost, convenient cloud package:

     1. Cloud Intranet. An all open source hosted Intranet, with secure
networks, directory, storage, etc., in eleven specialized virtual
servers dedicated to each organization, all hosted in Canadian

     2. Virtual Desktops. Integrated virtual full Ubuntu desktops,
accessible at blazing speed across the Internet around the world.

     3. Applications. A suite of the world's very best open source
software, more powerful than available from any proprietary company,
with single-sign-on and other integrated value.

We have a long list of enhancements we plan to make.  But we also want
Cirrus Computing to be more than just a way to earn a living - we are
focused on building the following win-win: 

     a. Customers. Provide end-users with increasingly powerful open
source solutions at a lower cost and with more convenience than any
proprietary, onsite system.

     b. Open Source. Our customers validate that people increasingly
want open source value. Since the cloud removes geography barriers, we
plan to significantly expand the open source user base first in Canada,
then internationally. (We support http://FreeOpenSourceSoftware.org ,
and will increasing give back as we proceed.)

We need two highly skilled experts to work in a fast-paced, dynamic
environment, with responsibilities ranging from development of
management software to support of early customers. Please email the
undersigned if you are a hands-on software developer / engineer /
computer scientist, want to seize the day, and match one or more of the
following requirements:

     1. Linux. Expertly skilled with Linux operating systems, with
Ubuntu a bonus.

     2. Networking. Good understanding of Internet networking, TCP/IP,
UDP, DNS, virtual private networks, firewalls.

     3. Email. Good understanding of email systems, IMAP, SMTP, spam and
virus control.

     4. Server Virtualization. Familiarity with server virtualization,
with OpenVZ a bonus.

     5. Desktop Virtualization. Familiarity with desktop virtualization,
with NoMachine or other NX a bonus.

     6. Languages. Familiarity with programming, C/C++, Java,
Javascript, PHP, Python.

     7. Databases. Familiarity with open source databases, PostgreSQL,
