Got a StackOverflow careers invitation.

They do a pretty cool thing: force you to tell “the truth” — no matter how subjective this term is — as opposed to emasculated official style:

  • what you really did (whatever it means to you);
  • what opensource/published projects did you participate in;
  • Top Stack questions you answered;
  • your professional reading and (sic!) writing.

Here I am:
(have to complete it still)

Got 5 invites btw.
Actually, just testing a new LiveJournal crosspost plugin.

    I work as Senior Software Engineer in a start-up company based at Herndon, VA. I have been working on Grails, Spring, Hibernate, Cloud services such as AWS. I am active member on too.

    I would really appreciate your invite.

  5. Saurabh, you got it, no problem.

    BTW you can delete negatively voted answers on SO, and it WILL increase your rep. It seems unfair, but it’s the way SO cleans out irrelevant content.
