I am looking for a positive company culture as much, if not more than the need for a challenging problem domain.
I like to solve difficult and unconventional problems along with motivated small teams.

## Where

I happily reside in the Central NJ / NYC Area.
I would prefer a job not tied to an office, but I am open to work within a reasonable commute of my geographic area.
At this time I **am not** willing to relocate.
While I happily reside in the Central NJ / NYC Area I am looking for a remote opportunity.
I am fine with *occasional* travel into a office or to clients, I prefer to keep it to a minimum.

## About Me

@@ -38,50 +37,61 @@ Due to my work style, I make extensive use of testing, scripting, and automation

I value the following in the culture where I work.

* **Collaboration** — People work together to solve problems. People share knowledge openly and collaborate with people from other roles (e.g. engineering, QA, design, UX, support).
* **Respect** — People respect the people they work with regardless of their role. People respect users of the software they develop. The company respects the roles of the technical team.
* **Work/life balance** — People work about 40 hours a week or less. Working on weekends only happens in extreme situations. Work hours are flexible to accommodate personal life. When people leave work at the end of the day, they disconnect from work. The work environment is sustainable, so burnout is rare.

### Cons

The following things will make me less excited about your organization. They're not dealbreakers, but I will probably ask for greater compensation if some of these practices are present at your company.

This cuts into work/life balance for me.
* An unlimited vacation policy.
* Policies that limit what employees can do with their free time (e.g. banning employees from contributing to open source).
* An excessively corporate structure --- bureaucracy for bureaucracies sake.

### Dealbreaker

Having a *primary* role supporting either a printer, a phone, or a 'legacy' system. Life is too short.
