Help Wanted

A friend of mine is looking for a good principal engineer.  You will be working for a medium size public company in the Bay Area.  Did I say you have to be good?  These are his words:

"Basically I am looking for a 15 on a scale of 1 – 10. Strong C++/OO, Java, J2EE and Middleware exper. They should have a strong enterprise software background."

I was asked fill the position, but I need to be in a position where I have power to initiate and define new products and technologies.  Right now, consulting and independent development fills that need.  Anyway, send me your resume and I'll forward it to the right person.
