and maintainer of:
I have received several applications and some very nice resumes, but none of the applicants are based in Denmark.
So I have responded to all the telecommuters that I will keep their resumes, but I am looking for people capable of being on location.
I specified that there are some on site requirements. I actually do not care whether people show up everyday, as long as you get some exposure and you attend the agreed meeting and get the job done, but telecommuters does not quite fill that hole. If you consider writing a job ad for posting on http://jobs.perl.org/, be aware what you specify when it comes to on site requirements.
Another group of applications is the people applying from abroad, which are willing to relocate to your country, in my case Denmark.
Unfortunately this is not relevant and the election last night did not change this. Getting people from abroad to work in Denmark is practically impossible and I do not have the resources to arrange this.
Currently I am examining alternative solutions and contacting some of all the Perl programmers I know. But it does not look particularly promising.
One plan is to start a company in Sweden, Sweden does seem to embrace foreigners in a more liberal manner than here in Denmark - but even that is resource demanding and I do not have too much time as it looks right now, which is the reason why I am hiring.
