The company described below is Polimetrix and the description is ripped off of our website. The recruiter contacted me and said that he had a candidate for this position and asked whether we'd be interested in seeing his/her resume. We did not ask the recruiter to post this to the list and have had no prior dealings with him. Nor do I plan to have any future dealings with him (though we're always looking for good Python people).
