Hire me for my mind!

Ward Cunningham tweeted a link to an ad for an Agile Ruby Developer at AboutUs, Inc. Out of curiosity I took a look and it sounds like a fantastic opportunity for someone!

What I liked most about the job ad was the last part:

We’re hiring you for your mind. Please showcase it by answering some of the following questions in your cover letter:

  • What is a recent programming insight you discovered and what was intriguing about it?
  • Why do you want to work with us? (be specific!)
  • What Open Source communities/projects are you a part of and why do you like them?
  • Tell us about a time you brought initiative to your team and made a positive change.
  • What modern programmer do you admire and why?
  • How do you learn and keep up with the field of computing?

These questions really appeal to me!
