Mozilla is looking for a build engineer…

This is for open-source techie friends of mine who read this blog:

The Mozilla Corporation is looking to hire a build engineer. If you’re interested, and you know me personally, please reply privately to me, and I’ll give them your name along with my recommendation (I assume if you and I know each other, then you can gauge whether or not I would recommend you). I’ve heard Mozilla is a great place to work, for what it’s worth.

If you don’t know me, but you’re still interested, I’m happy to pass your name along too, but would do so with a disclaimer that I don’t know you and therefore can’t make any recommendation.

Here’s what they said about the position:

Ideally the ideal candidate would look something like this: Someone with strong Perl and Python skills (as long as they’re strong at least one of the two scripting languages, we’re fine with it). In terms of revision control systems, CVS and Mercurial would be best (we’re fine with someone who has only experience in CVS). Experience with Tinderbox and Buildbot is a bonus. We have a pretty large build infrastructure of about 230 machines (Linux, Mac, and Windows)

That’s it. Let me know if you’re interested!
