If you have a web company in DC, I'm doing you a huge favor
Posted on 14/7/08 by Nate Abele
Hey y'all, big news:
My good friend Jesse Kochis is moving from Boston down to DC this October, and is looking for a company (or companies, if you can talk him into it) to work with. Aside from being a great guy, Jesse is far and away one of the most talented and capable developers I've ever had the pleasure of working with. On top of being an adept developer and architect, his front-end skills are virtually unparalleled.
In fact, Jesse and I met about the same time I was working on some new features that would come to form the basis for Cake 1.2. He and his team of developers has been writing apps on top of Cake 1.2 since the very beginning, and his work has been influential in several aspects of 1.2's design.
I've never endorsed anybody like this before, but as far as I'm concerned, this isn't so much an endorsement as it is a favor to any Washington DC-based internet companies. If you can afford to hire someone in a senior position, you'd be crazy not to; and if you can't afford it, you need to interview him, and then re-examine your budget.
You can skip to the end and add a comment.
Would he mind a daily commute to Raleigh, NC? :-)
Thanks Nate! Always great having you as a friend.
And he's a pretty sweet boss!
After working 1 to 2 desks from him for most of his time here in Boston, I have to second Nate's glowing recommendation, and I have to add that he makes a mean Macaroni & Cheese.
Dude, I have to figure out how to grill it. My recipe has improved substantially, 10 times more cheesy creaminess.

Great quick way to get the word out. I'm passing this along now.
