Last week a CraigsList job ad from a “San Diego Tech Company” spread fast in the developer community across the country. Which is odd right because when was the last time anyone in any industry passed around a job description?
And they liked it.
The same job description met with a lukewarm response in the Recruiter and HR community. Some said it promoted the wrong things. That the culture sounded like a bunch of boys on the playground. Blah, blah, blah.
The number of times the “f word” (along with other “colorful” words”) is used has something to do with it.
Which may explain why IT pros loved it. And not just the fellas. From what I could tell a nearly equal number of women like it too.
Below are screen shots of the now infamous description.
My though is this… get past the cuss words and grandiose language used.
This is one of the best job descriptions I have seen.
