I'm looking for a SalesForce developer, a young boy with a deep knowledge of appexchange and who loves to work for a startup, also remotely.

One of the comments in this board:

Is it politically correct to request that a new hire be a "young boy?" Can I ask applicants to please be "ladies of a certain age?"

Ya think?

I think that "young boy" and "deep knowledge" in the same sentence just blew the TooFuckingWeirdOmeter off the scale.

I understand he's also seeking qualities like naked ambition, and someone who can write clean and tight code.

Horrible sounding, but...

I will assume it's an older guy, with probably very little modern programming knowledge. Has an idea, and figures a "young man" would know better and be cheap. The boy part is what makes it really creepy though...

The fact that is a remote gig makes it just barely word, not sordid.

My favorite job application I ever got when I was Dev director many eons ago, was from a chick.
In the envelope which was lavender:
Picture of her in an aerobics leotard.
A picture of her in a bikini.
A cover letter, on pink paper, with that vanilla-orange stripper scent on it.
a resume page on lavender

The resume was normal overall.
The coverletter however... (paraphrasing)
As you can see from the enclosed photos, I am a hot blond bombshell with 34DD breasts, a 26" waist, and a six pack. I am extremely flexible, energetic, and give great workouts.

We later found out she screwed up. She was a programmer, but moonlighted as an aerobics instructor. BORING.

Where is this board?


I worked briefly this summer hiring people .... my boss wanted HOT GIRLS to be
his secretary and obviously you cant ask that or anything so i just hired them through facebook where i could completely discriminate based upon their sexiness and age.

HAHAHAHA

I expect that a healthy appreciation for viruses would be a benefit, as would a desire to backup.

Oh yes, the successful candidate will be obsessed with backing up frequently.  Good one.

Though not quite as "wise" as daviator, I emphatically concur on the butt tip.  Let no butt get left behind Wink
