Google Recruiting

So, Google are recruiting again. From the open source community, obviously. It’s where to find all the good developers.

Here’s the suggestion I made on how they can really get in front of FOSS developers:

Hi [name]

Just a quick note to thank you for getting in touch of so many our
Catalyst IT staff, both here and in Australia, with job offers. It comes
across as a real compliment to our company that the folks that work here
are considered worthy of Google’s attention.

One thing about most of our staff is that they *love* open source. Can I
suggest, therefore, that one of the best ways for Google to demonstrate
its commitment to FOSS and FOSS developers this year would be to be a
sponsor of the NZ Open Source Awards. These have been very successful at
celebrating and recognising the achievements of FOSS developers,
projects and users. This year there is even an “Open Science” category.

Google has been a past sponsor of the event and it would be good to see
you commit to it again.

Many thanks
