My apologies. My intent was not to offend.  I'll be sure to be extra careful choosing my words next time.  First, that was (clearly) my posting, I do not work for the company, and I know that they are a solid organization and do not discriminate in any way.  Again, please remember that the intent of this thread was to give contributors the opportunity to provide helpful information to engineers in the this community about companies with python envirionments.  There is a separate "Jobs" page on the BayPiggies site.

So again, apologies if you were offended in any way.  And given your interpretation of the image I was trying to paint, perhaps that was a bad choice of words by me.   My intent was to paint a picture/give a sense of the kind of exuberance, energy and spirit found in kids/youths...  Questioning everything, exploring everything and ready to spin in circles until till they dropped..... "Young at heart".... 60 or 26 if you like, age wasn't the point, but the wild cheerful spirit of a 6year old was.    

Anyhow, thank you for your thoughts, In the future I'll be more careful about how I convey my thoughts and opinions.

I'm curious what the part of the post that says that Keas is looking for 
people who are "young-ish"/or young at heart means. I've already encountered 
in the computer industry a lot of age discrimination. You all should know 
that it is illegal. It is also immoral, and is no different from racism, or 
sexism, or any other method of turning people down for any reason other than 
their abilities. Older people need work too! What would you all think if 
Keas said they're looking for people who are "white-ish"? Companies get away 
with it because it is very hard to prove in court. Is this company putting 
such a policy in writing? Does their statement of what they're looking for 
mean that, for example, since I'm not a GenX, I have no chance whatsoever of 
being hired there, regardless of my programming ability?
