Dream Job

Other than being a full-time dad, this is pretty much the closest thing to a dream job in my line of work that I have seen in my 8-ish years as a working adult:

We are now looking to hire a talented web Development Engineer to join our growing team at dpreview.

You will be passionate about digital photography and possess a strong understanding of dpreview, our principles and our community. Being a self starter with good design and user interface skills, you have at least two years demonstrable experience of web development; we will expect you to be able to have extensive experience in ASP.NET 2.0 as well as fully integrated client-side Javascript and hand-coded HTML (reliance on WSIWYG editors will be seen as a negative).  We will also expect you to have experience of SQL databases, specifically Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and 2005.

That's totally the job for me. 

And it's totally in London, with no telecommuting option.

    You know…that job description may as well been in Swahili! It could however, be a new reality series…"The Sagara's in London" or better yet "The Sagara's take London" (much like my favorite muppet movie)

    I'm with you! I had to ask him what he would be doing because none of what I read made a lick of sense to me either. After all these years, I still don't have a clue!

    I think if the Sagaras took London, we would end up behaving more like the Griswolds than the Muppets.
