We need two developers at the company I work for; that is, I am NOT a recruiter.  My boss is asking me to search for developers for me to work with ... like minded, haskell loving, driven, c/c++ (c# if we have to) for an INITIALLY c# full-time salaried position in Arizona (or FL or UT).  He is open to starting new projects using Haskell, where applicable. 


So, he is involving me in the interview process, and I've been less than pleased with candidate selection so far.  I told him we need to find people that see the beauty of mathematics and Haskell.  If you have a resume you want me to forward on, reply to me directly and I will forward on through the review process.
