HIRING: Sun Community Sites Engineer

Oooooo…Rama just posted a job opening for some lucky soul who is passionate/knowledgeable about the community/social networking space and is a stellar engineer who will get to work on Sun sites like this, this, this, this and/or this. The job description is somehow missing the super cool benefit of having me as your program manager, but I’m sure that was just caused by some formatting fluke. 😉
