- 180k+ <— I like it.
- Must have experience with AWS, GCE, AND Azure <— Okay, you’re looking for a unicorn
- Kubernetes expert
- Experience with Rust, Node, and .NET <— What type of fucking company are you?
- Must be on call and 25% travel <— Why?
- Preferred: experience with printer repair, Raid Arrays, CAT5, and Microsoft Access <— Y’all fucked up somewhere a long time ago. I’m out.

    Travel must be taking trips to fix people’s printers. Bc that’s what developers are good at. Expect to be asked to unjam a printer in the middle of unit testing

    @platypus I can imagine the codebase being like a platypus...it’s a creature with a strange combination of body parts like the beak, venomous claw, can lay eggs and is mammal. The system is a creature using a strange combination of languages like node and rust...actually that fits the job description too. Only difference is that the platypus is cool lol

    I feel like I need more details on the printer repair component to this job. Like HP, Epson, Dell? Do I just need to know how to change the ink?

    I guess if something does not work, they want you to fix it, no matter if the problem is in your projekt, framework, library, language or kernel. You will just turn your favourite music and find solution.

    Also because they want to save money they would jump from cloud provider to cloud provider.
