Yes-- we're definitely open to finding technical resources in country!
Given the high demand for technical talent in India, however, it's actually been
quite hard to find someone with the required skillsets for this position. We've been

Thanks for forwarding these positions to the mailing lists above-- they look like they
might be great resources for us.
If you have any ideas or leads, please send them my way.
