LinkedIn looking for top-notch database engineers

I recently talked with Jean-Luc Valliant, the CTO at LinkedIn, about a new project they're starting. Of course I was interested, but I'm here at Symantec now and jumping ship after just six months is just not how I do things.

But I did say I'd put the word out. They're looking for top-level database theorists - people who have a solid understanding of and have contributed to database research. They're also looking for people with real-world experience building and deploying high performance, highly scalable database solutions, dealing with things like storage, caching, sharding/clustering, messaging and so on.

If you're interested, contact Jean-Luc Valliant at LinkedIn. If you have trouble reaching him, let me know at david at vancouvering dot com and I'll connect you up.

Hi David,

FYI, the Symantec start date on LinkedIn doesn't look right.

Regards, Ronald.
