Hey David,

I happen to be a baseball-fanatic technology recruiter (I’ll likely be at the meetup in Chicago this week)… I can’t personally help you with that opening because I’m in the Chicago market rather than NYC. As I’m sure you’re aware, it’s a tough job to fill. I have no idea if you’re open to working with a recruiter but — should you become open to it — the top headhunter in my company happens to work in the NYC market. You’re welcome to drop me a line if you’re interested? Not exactly sure how to get you contact info here but I’ll check back.

The Chicago market might still be relevant.


True enough, thanks!
