I am leaving eREI (the online division of Recreational Equipment
Incorporated) for a new and very promising position. In doing so, I have
been authorized to look for my replacement. If anyone is looking to become
a developer at one of the few profitable "e" companies, please mail me
your resume at rwolber at rei.com. This is a permanent, salaried position
physically located in Kent Washington. We build and maintain www.rei.com,
www.rei-outlet.com and www.rei.co.jp. As far as I know, telecommuting is
not an option for this position.

Qualifications are as follows:

Some Java experience. They are re-architecting and many (but not all) of
the projects are moving from Perl to Java. Since all of the other
developers are pretty much on the same level when it comes to Java, there
will be some decent opportunities for training.

Perl experience. At least 2-3 years of solid devlopment experience.
Experience should include OO, CGI and database programming as well as
experience with standard configuration management methodologies.

That's pretty much it. As far as where this job fits into the big picture
of eREI, the position is in an area called "Marketing Systems". Our main
"customer" is the analytics group. We write the tools and make the data
available and they do whatever analysis is necessary to answer the
business questions the suits are asking. My main projects right now are
the online Data Warehouse and Bargain Sleuth (You can check out Bargain
Sleuth at http://rei-outlet.com/reihtml/sleuth/sleuth.html). Both of them
are written in Perl (and will probably stay that way).

The job also comes with a generous salary (commensurate with experience),
full benefits, profit sharing, huge employee discounts and the privilege
of working in a very new and very earthquake-proof building :)

As I said before, if you are interested please e-mail me at
rwolber at rei.com or you can call me at (253)437-7287. Please contact me on
or before Friday March 16. If you know of anyone who didn't receive this
message, who you think would be interested, please pass this on to them.

Thank you,
