Hey SPUGgers,

I really like my job. The work is interesting and challenging, uses
fun tech (Node.js, FreeSWITCH, Redis). And my team is FREAKING

I tell you this, because we have two openings. If you are interested,
or know some software engineers who may be interested, let me know!

Granted, this is not Perl. But JavaScript is a dynamic language, that
feels perhaps closer to Perl than Ruby or Python. And Node.js is a
very nice asynchronous framework. You may have heard something about
it on the internet.

p.s. In case it isn't clear, the software we are writing processes phone calls.
