[Zebralist] [ANN] Katipo Communications in Wellington, New Zealand, Hiring Junior Zebra and Rails Developer

A reasonable point, but there is a "a big bonus" after those and I  
didn't specify a minimum amount of experience considered.  Someone  
with only two months with Zebra and YAZ as a school project wouldn't  
necessarily be above a junior developer in my book.  It really depends  
on their complete work experience, but that Zebra/YAZ experience would  
be a big bonus in my consideration of them.

The list is a guide.  "We'd like" is different than "we require".

If you are interested, but feel you are more senior than the position  
describes, go ahead and contact me.  For the right candidate we might  
consider hiring someone above the junior position.
