-You are very dependable (do what you say you are going to do), a team player, easy to work with, and super customer friendly.
-We would strongly prefer you work out of our Oakland Office (photos here).

-You will be responsible for managing our dev team (india-based) to deliver 2-3 releases per year to-spec, on-time, and on-budget.
