Dear Jim,

I'll do my best to be straight up and honest with you and keep this as short
as possible. Ticketmaster, in West Hollywood, CA really has a great team of
talented admins and we're looking to add two more. You'll be hard pressed to
find a team with as much experience and knowledge in high-volume web systems
as you'll find at Ticketmaster but that should be a positive for you! It's a
chance to be a part of something special where your own skills and interests
can help to shape our team and enable us to provide the best service
possible. I think you can imagine the type of infrastructure it takes to get
pounded on like we do during our big ticket "on sales."

That being said, I'd really appreciate it if you could make your user group
membership aware of this opportunity. If someone is an admin with
significant experience in linux and web hosting, they can feel free to drop
me an email. If they'd like a job description I can send also, but honestly,
think major web house, lots of linux and open source tools, etc. If you're a
senior engineer over here though, you are expected to have the ability to do
coding on some level. Basically, with as many systems as we have, we expect
most things to be automated and any new people to the team would play a part
in the future of these systems.

In terms of the things your membership might be most interested in…
Ticketmaster's offers are very competitive including a very complete
benefits package (e.g., Medical, Dental, Vision, FSA, 401K plan, etc.).
Yeah, I'm sure that we can pique a strong player's interest and make it
worth their while if we talk ;) We have two open roles so there really isn't
any competition. We'll happily relocate a best friend from back home if
that's necessary so I'm asking people to big since it may be just the right
time to work with one of your colleagues from the past!

I hope that you don't mind this direct contact and will make this role known
to your membership. Please ask your group to not be shy.

They can call or drop me an email. BTW: I am a Ticketmaster employee and do
not represent any outside agency. I have been with Ticketmaster for over 6
years so I know how this company ticks.
