Looking for a Software Tools/Release Engineer

Excuse me for posting a job ad on this distribution list. If this is forbidden, I'll refrain from making this mistake in the future.

I'm looking for a full-time Software Tools/Release Engineer. The ideal candidate will have experience in

   branching/merging strategies using Subversion in a variety of different environments
   establishing SCM policies and executing them
   creating software tools (using Unix shell, Perl, Python, and/or Ruby) to automate our build, package, and deploy processes
   deploying packages to multiple environments
   providing support for the infrastructure parts of the application.
Three or more years of SCM experience is a must. System administration and/or support experience is a major plus.

The environment is Unix/Linux. The challenge is to automate our build and production processes. One of the first target is a 75-step process that takes ~1 hour to execute. I believe this can be brought down to <15 minutes. If you have significant SCM experience + a desire to express your creativity through innovative software tools, you maybe a good candidate for this position.

The company is a financial institution in San Francisco, and the project is part of an internal client-server application that is close to full release. (Yeah, it doesn't sound as sexy as a Web 2.0 startup, but the application is interesting especially if you are interested in how financial markets work.)

If you are interested, please send me your resume, contact info, and a good time I can reach you.

Thank You,
