mention the part/full time opening we have coming up for a Python guru.  
The details of the opening are listed below from the ad we placed on 
Craig's List:

transportation analysis software in the SaaS space. We maintain a server 
farm in Beaverton which feeds transportation analysis to customers 
around the U.S. Our services are mission critical for our customers -- 
reliability is critical. Our growth and the need to expand the 
capabilities of our products requires the support of one or more

MooTools and/or jQuery

like C, C++, or PowerBasic (other than .NET)

languages to create HTML pages in Web applications
