LT Job Op (and Ribbet)

Library Thing is looking for a programmer:

LibraryThing, the company behind LibraryThing.com and LibraryThing for Libraries, is looking to hire a top-notch developer/programmer.

We like to think we make “products that don’t suck,” as opposed to much of what’s developed for libraries. We’ve got new ideas and not enough developers to make them. That’s where you come in.

Technical Skills required:

LibraryThing is mostly non-OO PHP. You need to be a solid PHP programmer or show us you can become one quickly. You should be experienced in HTML, JavaScript, CSS and SQL. We welcome experience with design and UX, Python, Solr, and mobile development.

There's a link to an online quiz in the job post that you should take to see if you're technically qualified, or send in your resume, whichever works best for you. See the job listing on Library Thing for more details. Also, if you apply and do get the job, mention I referred you, and I'll win a bunch of books. :)

Now, if you were a Muppet, exactly which one would you be? Take the quiz here and find out.

My results:

I don't know if I'm any of that description, but all the same I'm happy to be Kermit (okay, I was secretly hoping to be Mr. Snuffleupagus. No one but Big Bird ever saw him. Which would make Shiloh Walker Big Bird.)

So which Muppet are you? Let us know in comments.

  1. I got Rowlf and apparently, "You are one talented person. You are considered an "old soul". You can be lazy, but always spring forward to get the job done." I don't think that's true at all, but then I struggled a bit with the quiz because I haven't seen any of the movies and didn't know half the characters, so I just plumped for whatever grabbed my fancy.

    1. Aw, Rowlf is one of my favorite characters. He's always the one you can count on -- and that's just like you! :)

  2. Lynn,
    I'm The Great Gonzo! "You are daring, unusual, & unique. You also don't care what others think of you." I like to think I am unusual and unique and yep, overall I don't care what other think of me other than my close family.
    By the way, did you get my thank you e-mail? If not, I will resend with the photos I took of my new piece of jewelry! Thank you again!

    1. E-mails have been sent -- and I can totally see you as Gonzo, lol.

  3. Hey, from one Kermit to another... ;D

    1. We will have to start a Kermit Writers Klub, hee hee.

  4. I am The Great Gonzo.
    And I don't care who doesn't like it. ;)

    1. That works for you, too, although for you I think I would have picked Cookie Monster -- or maybe Animal. You have that secretly wild thing vibe about you. :)
