Firespring is growing rapidly and needs 5 talented people to join our team in Lincoln, Nebraska. We’re going to great extremes to find talented programmers. While we opted not to require that our new team members code in the nude, we did decide to pay $3,000 in cash to anyone who refers someone that we hire.

So dust off the Rolodex® (if you don’t know what that is, ask Dad) and make a list of your friends and family members who know that 1) PHP is not a drug, and 2) MySQL does not refer to a bad movie remake. Our ideal candidate is a dyed-in-the-wool geek who cares more about working on projects that truly make a difference in the world than they do about displaying their magnetic personality.
