Lucas C. Wagner, of Spindletop Software Dynamics, Inc. says:

The GNU jobs page represents, to me, one of the easiest and most effective ways to post jobs that require the knowledge and expertise of the free software community at large. Applicants are often extremely experienced, talented individuals who are donating their time both "on the clock" and "after hours" improving or extending the GNU software or other free software projects that their employers depend on. Additionally, applicants are often more than willing to help their employers connect (or remain connected) to the free software community so that further contributions to enterprise-critical projects can be gained from a network of thousands of people, from independent programmers to other employers just like you. It is for this reason that I highly recommend the GNU jobs page to employers serious about their commitment to using and/or building upon free and/or GNU software.
