O'Reilly Media, Inc. spreads the knowledge of innovators through its  
books, online services, magazine, and conferences. Since 1978,  
O'Reilly has been a chronicler and catalyst of leading-edge  
development, homing in on the technology trends that really matter and  
spurring their adoption by amplifying "faint signals" from the alpha  
geeks who are creating the future. An active participant in the  
technology community, the company has a long history of advocacy, meme- 
making, and evangelism.

I'm the Director of IT here at O'Reilly Media, and we're looking for a  
full time software Engineer who can join our collaborative team  

This position will be working in a team environment building and  
maintaining enterprise-class business and client-oriented applications  
using creative and cutting edge technologies.  This position must also  
adapt quickly to legacy and evolving architectures in implementing  
incremental feature improvements and in maintaining existing  
applications.  This position reports to the Software Manager, and is  
located at our corporate headquarters in Sebastopol, CA.

We're looking for someone with a solid 2-3 years of enterprise-class  
Python development experience, 2 plus years of RDBMS experience  
(ideally MySQL, PostgreSQL and/or Oracle), and 1-2 years of experience  
working with XML databases and various XML dialects.  These might  
include Marklogic, XQuery, RDF, Docbook, SPARQL, and eXist.

In this position, you'll use Python and various web application  
frameworks (primarily Pylons) to build web-based applications that  
service internal and external-facing audiences.  You'll be exposed to  
our core publishing, metadata, and content tool chains that are  
heavily vested in XML-based technologies, and will be working to help  
support new business initiatives in various parts of the  
organization.  You'll also be working on back-end systems using  
Python, Java, Relational database, XML and XML database technologies.
