When local startup Dis/rupt.ly put out a job posting for a “rockstar” full stack developer, they weren’t expecting to get an actual rockstar.
“My buddy Kate, who’s the best engineer I know, told me that her friend Sam [Smith] was the perfect fit for the job, so I hired him immediately,” said founder Ryan White. “I figured she meant Sam was a top-notch coder, but turns out she meant he’s literally in a rock band.”
When asked about his new job, Smith seemed very enthusiastic. “I’ve had to work a lot to catch up to the other developers, but I can’t complain — the pay and benefits are great,” he said. “I’m especially pumped about the unlimited vacation. I’m going on tour with my band for a couple months soon, so I’ll definitely be taking advantage of that.”
At press time, White was seen deleting “Wanted: Ninja Programmers” from another Dis/rupt.ly job posting.
