Damien Katz has started Couchio to provide CouchDb hosting services. He's looking to hire an infrastructure engineer.

It should be an interesting gig for a few reasons. Start by reading Damien's Thoughts on an Open Source Company. I love the idealism of his approach. I'd quibble with whether someone needs to have contributed to open source: it's a great indicator, but doesn't seem like an absolute requirement to me. But Damien is a unique guy, with an often-unconventional outlook. See his CouchDB and Me presentation (complete with marker-on-legal-pad production values) for a history of the path he's taken so far.

Pretty much every step of the way Damien's done it wrong for some well-accepted value of "wrong". And so far it's worked out for him. I don't know his secret, but I wouldn't bet against him...
