Hi Linux fans,


  I’m a recruiter with two high paying positions that is located in Jersey City, NJ for an Investment Bank.  One position is for a Sr. Linux Internals Engineer/Developer and the other is for a Linux Release Manager.  The pay is budgeted for the $90k-$150k base salary with additional bonus that can be anywhere from 10-50%.

  This is an opportunity in getting in the ground floor as the investment community moves away from Sun’s Solaris and gravitates towards Linux.  If you know anyone who is underpaid or who is looking for work and has an excellent resume, skills and work history, please have them contact me for an immediate interview.

   Also, if you have friends who are programmers, I have over 400 jobs I can’t fill.  Of course, they need to be good at what they do and have some kind of financial experience.  The two above positions do not require any financial experience.
