Poaching^WHiring!

Sun has been hiring! Now that it’s official, I can welcome my new colleagues in the WebStack team. And did I mention, one of them was formerly the key man at our biggest(?) competitor!

First we have Brian Overstreet, who answered our advertisement and has now joined us. Brian is a relatively recent grad, with opensource credentials in a couple of projects including Mozilla, and a background as solaris guru whilst at college. He should make a great addition to our team. Welcome Brian!

Just a day or two later, our star new recruit Jeff Trawick joined at a senior level. Jeff comes to us from IBM, where he worked for many years, rising to lead in their web server project. Jeff is of course also a well-respected and long-standing Apache core developer and ASF member, making two of us on Sun’s webstack team. Welcome Jeff!

Anyone else interested in working here, not that Brian takes just one of the entry-level jobs. The other is, to the best of my knowledge, still open!
