Hi My/Sql Meetup,

I am a recruiter working with the VP of Engineering of a great company
developing an ultra-fast DBMS for all forms of decision support and complex
processing--from traditional data warehouse and analytics to real-time
operational business intelligence and reporting. Industry benchmarks confirm
a 300% gain over traditional DBMSs in both performance and
price-performance.  He has asked me to search for several senior engineer
and/or managers with in-depth database experience.

I have placed the job description below, let me know if you or someone you
know would be interested...
Thanks, Luan
