Anyone want my job (or one like it)?
It looks like we're hiring a new person, position description is being written this week to be posted shortly. The goal seems to be to find someone who can take the sysadmin and some my programming projects to free me up to work on other projects. Programming is primarily writing Mason and Perl modules in Perl (obviously) in an Apache/Perl/MySQL environment. Sysadmin is on a dozen Solaris boxes, building and updating packages, working with USG (University Systems Group) for patch updates, etc. I'm wondering if reading my weblog really gives a good sense of what I do . . . probably not.
Tufts is a great place to work. Pretty relaxed environment. The hardest thing to get used to is the flexibility in deadlines and the 35-hour work week.
I'll get the official position description posted once it's complete. We have a great team, but it has taken some time finding the right people. Last position we filled we looked through between 100 and 200 resumes and went through several rounds of interviews before we found a good fit. Where are the good Perl programmers?
