I?ve found a 7/30/06 job posting for a ?PHP Superhero? from Squidoo.
The ad states, ?Part and full time contracts are available!
Telecommuting is ok, and hours are flexible.? This seems to say that
they may have projects on an ongoing basis. Additional information
I?ve found shows that they?re operating with a very small staff.

I am looking for intermediate to expert level PHP developers to work

you're comfortable with server administration tasks.
Part and full time contracts are available! Telecommuting is ok, and
hours are flexible.

linked to is a non-paying position.
"Compensation: Volunteer, plus transporation plus free lunch."
I recommend that you follow the instructions and build a Squidoo lens
