Hi Everyone:
Sorry for the mass email but I wanted to get in touch because as you may
(or may not) know I've recently co-founded a new start-up. We are a
web-based service that allows users to find music from emerging artists
who play in local venues nearby. We are currently seeking a Ruby on
Rails developer to join the team and so I thought I might pass the job
offer on to you in case you know someone looking for work in this lovely
time of economic crisis ;] The office is in Rome (yes, Italy) and we are
looking for someone to come here and work with us in the sun. We've als=
have some space for interns if you know anyone looking for a bit of
industry experience. Please feel free to circulate this as you see fit.
I hope all is well!
