Y'all are a bunch of wankers!

We are a "Microsoft" shop

> Build and maintain applications using Java, PHP, .NET and C#

Wait - what are those other ones again? The ones that aren't Microsoft products?


> Ability to work well in a fast-paced environment, while managing multiple priorities and meeting deadlines

La la la la whatever.


> Ability to lift and pull 25lbs

Does this count towards the wellness bonus?

Wait - they have one more bullet point:

> Linux server administration experience


Maybe they've got another one further down:

> Employee must know how to make fancy coffee drinks with little hearts on top

There's a couple of them. This does not appear to be one.

Candidate must have 10+ years experience in PHP, Ruby, Python, Java, C++, .NET, Go, Rust, Haskell, HTML5, Javascript, node, CSS, LESS, TypeScript, CoffeeScript, Angular, React, Bootstrap, mySQL, Microsoft SQL, T-SQL, PostgresSql, Hadoop, Mongodb.

And then they get 20 resumes where the candidates' experience matches the requirements exactly!

Tired of seeing unrealistic requirements.

What likely happened is "Bob" just quit. And management wants to find another Bob, plus all the skills that are trendy.  All for $20k below market rates.

We're just not able to find anyone who has expertise with the REST API.

I had one CTO interviewing me:
"But you don't have experience in REST"
I told him: "REST is a convention whose principles and best practices can be summarized in 2 pages max"

@Did he give you the job?

No he didn't. He also wanted experience in AWS which I don't have.
He called me for a face to face interview without even reading my resume. Luckily he was local, so I only wasted a morning.
