Got Skills?

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

This is a little informal, but Firefall Pro, LLC is currently seeking a part-time to full time PHP (LAMP) developer. We will consider all skill levels. Compensation will vary depending on skill and available time. Training is available.

The person must live in the NYC area and actually show up in the office. We are not outsourcing, or considering a staffing agency. I will personally gut whoever contacts us with either of the aforementioned solutions. I will also make it my sworn duty to publish their inability to read everywhere I can.

I’ll post a better job description when I get around to making Dan write it. Resumes should be sent to [email protected].

Don’t Ever Say:

  • “That should be a quick change, right?”
  • “How can I always be the first result on Google?”
  • “It should be easy to…”
  • “All you have to do is…”

Sucks (In a good way)

Not all of our work on the internets involves creating new sites. Sometimes we have do simple things like moving a site to a new host. Sometimes we have to do that even when the client doesn’t have access to the old server, or any backup.

Sure curl is fun and easy to use, but so is SiteSucker. I went to MacUpdate downloaded it, launched it from the disk image, typed in the URL, got the entire site in less then a minute.

No registration window, no nag window, no limitations. It took more time to donate to project then to use the application. Simplicity at its best.
