Heres a job opportunity you dont see every day:
Were looking for a SpamMaster. Our company, called Bright Light
Technologies, which is developing anti-spam (anti-junk email) software,
is looking for people who enjoy tracking down spammers and developing
filtering rules (e.g. sendmail, procmail or Eudora filters) to stop the
flow of spam.
We want people who want to help end spam. If you think "people should
just hit delete," you're not for us.
There is no hard and fast rule for the background of people who could
become spam masters. Most, however, have technical experience and/or
education and have inquisitive minds. They like a good puzzle. Many
people today are part-time anti-spam experts on newsgroups like
news.admin.net-abuse.email or through the many web pages on the net.
For these people, this is an opportunity to get paid to do something
theyre doing for free today. The ideal SpamMaster would be a person
who is already responsible for anti-spam filters for an ISP or large
corporation. This person might be a UNIX sys admin or a network
engineer. No matter what the background, however, the salary and equity
for the position will be competitive.
A little about the company and its founder:
The Company is a well-funded startup in the hip South of Market area of
San Francisco was founded by experienced, successful
Internet entrepreneurs. This Company's founder and CEO co-founded the
first Web-based push service that he sold for $38M in less than one
year. He and his partner built a previous company from nothing to a
company with an outstanding, well-known product, 40 employees, and over
$3M in venture financing in 6 months. Before that, the founder was at a
now very large ISP during its most meteoric growth as their Internet
Product Manager and was also involved in numerous internet acquisitions
and other relationships with Internet companies. Before working for the
ISP, the founder was a technology policy analyst at the US Congress
Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) where he evaluated technology
policy options related to telecommunications and computing, including
the early policy implications of the Internet.
Talk about a unique job! This is one that you won't be embarrassed
telling someone at a*tail party. If you or someone you know is
