Are you hiring web developers?

As the US economy spins into a death spiral I unfortunately now know some highly skilled web developers (Python, Ruby, JavaScript, etc) in the Chicago area who are looking for work. And I mean highly skilled people whose ninja like qualities will be sorely missed. Most hiring budgets are probably frozen — at least until next year — but they will soon thaw. Those that thaw sooner will make space for big prizes of talent. I can make introductions over email or via Linked In.

    Yes, we are, if they are willing to move to Portland.

    Random suggestion... oDesk.com to tide them over? Plenty of stuff going round on there still it seems.

    @Encolpe: hehe, another friend of mine was in that exact position at Lucas, building their CMS in Django. He did not get laid off though; he left because he wasn't happy with the project and environment at Lucas.

    That should not deter anyone from applying. They were personal reasons, another developer might feel different.
