Submitting Jobs for Posting

Linux enthusiasts come from many diverse backgrounds and careers, not limited to the computer science field. A common quality is that they are all highly self-motivated, dedicated, hard-working, and intelligent. If you are looking for employees of this sort please consider letting us know.

If you'd like to list a job here, or have your job listing removed (ie, it's been filled) or changed, please e-mail webmaster@lugod.org.

Important Notes:

  1. Do not send file attachments, HTML e-mails or Word Documents. Send your job posting (edited for brevity if possible) as a plain-text e-mail.
  2. If you include phone numbers or email addresses in your job posting (either for posting on this page, or posting our our vox-jobs mailing list, which is archived), please note whether you'd like them included. If you don't specify, we'll assume they are valid contact numbers/addresses which should be included with your posting!
  3. The current policy is to regularly remove jobs which are older than about 6 months.
  4. Posting priority is given to jobs in the Davis/Sacramento area, then the San Francisco Bay Area. We typically do not post out-of-state jobs (unless it's a telecommuting opportunity, of course), as that's beyond the club's scope (Davis, California).
