How to Hire Me for a Development Position
Hi. If you’re reading this page, you’re probably a technical recruiter looking for candidates for a position. Since we’re both professionals, allow me to provide some information to help you decide whether it’s worth your time to reach out to me.
You may find some of these requirements unreasonable, but that’s part of my design. I already have a solid job where I make good money doing work that helps people. If you want me to come work for your clients instead, you’ve got to make it worth my while.
