I just got this E-mail from the CEO:
There is a job opening at PHS for a cli-ops engineer. The job description is attached. Please let me know if you know someone that would be interested in this position. The position would be out of Santa Monica, not in Irvine. Note there is a referral award if you’re able to help find someone for this job.
Here’s the job description:
This position primarily entails loading patient health information into our proprietary disease management applications and then generating a report summarizing the data changes and sending it to the appropriate stakeholders. The loading of the data can be a flat file feed or can be a set of business rules defined by the client and documented in a business specification, whereby PL/SQL must be written to modify existing client data in the database. These imports / data processes occur on an ad hoc and regularly scheduled basis.
We currently use Oracle external tables with custom written PL/SQL, with some use of ETL for data transformations and data reads. We are moving towards utilizing an industrial ETL tool in 2007 that will handle scheduling, transformations, notifications and will work with our custom PL/SQL business processes to handle the complicated business rules defined by our clients.
This position will require coordinating data transfers and imports to and from external vendors using various technologies including: SFTP, Linux / Unix shell commands / Terminal Services, PL/SQL and ETL. It will require the ability to communicate current issues and project statuses to stakeholders, other development staff and external vendors. It will also require the drafting of technical specifications, as necessary and clear communication around all processes and reports.

Umm. I’m sorry. Did you FORGET what you moved me to Santa Monica for, and then cut my funding for? AND now you are hiring a NEW PERSON for it? WTF?!
HELLO. I have all these qualifications.
Since I just got the e-mailt his morning, that means it hasn’t been posted on Monster.com yet. You can be sure I’ll be watching that to see how much this person will be getting paid.
God I’m annoyed!
