Termie’s Talent Agency, Take 2

Lately the amount of people asking me for friends who code to work on their projects has been increasing so I think it is time to revive Termie’s Talent Agency, and add a little twist. Here’s the breakdown:

Developers, Designers

If you think that you could at some point in the future be interested in working on cool projects — and I’m not going to point you at stuff I think is stupid — shoot off an email to termietalent at gmail and please include the following:

  • whether you would like to travel or move, I hear about things in both Europe and the U.S.
  • what kinds of things you are actually enthusiastic about, if you code but are really into journalism I want to hear about; describe your dream job.
  • where I can dig up more info on you, like a blog or something
  • a recipe for one of your favorite dishes (i like food) or one of your favorite paragraphs from a book

Companies new!

If you are looking for great talent that will never hit a job board because they already have jobs and could find new ones every day — the kind that hate headhunters because they always represent horrible boring corporations — then send an email to termietalent at gmail and please include the following:

  • where you are located and if you need somebody to be located physical nearby
  • the size of the team our hero will be working with
  • a passionate description of your project that will instill a renewed sense of vitality and enthusiasm to any kindred spirit who reads it
  • a brief description (longer if you use illustrative metaphors) of what kind of hero you are looking for to fill out your squad
  • a recipe for one of your favorite dishes (i like food) or one of your favorite paragraphs from a book

Everybody

None of this information will be posted anywhere, it is for my own private use as a matchmaker extraordinaire, but should from aught a spark take light ‘tween brave souls I shall send both parties an intro email.

And hey, if you’ve got other crazy ideas about arrangements send ’em in also, I’ve heard things like design for code barters (keeps the tax man away) and even dating requests.

–snip–

I had a great time doing this before, but at some point the server that handled that email got moved and DNS was in somebody else’s hands and everything sort of fell apart.

Likewise, if you’ve sent stuff in before, please send it again to refresh my memory and so that I’ll have it on record.

  1. Look great dude, I’m down for any WordPress consulting/mangling and general production, project management, escorts, bar tending and bike mechanic jobs that you might come up with…

    and if in Europe? All the better (see ‘dates’ above). 😉
