I might know some folks fit for that. I’ll pass it along!

If anyone is interested in this and would like a referral, please let me know (it’s my extended team :slight_smile:

you are interested to get the incentive :slight_smile: ???

The incentive would be nice, but more importantly, this person will end up on my team (which means going to conferences, working on projects, and maybe sitting beside them), so I’d like to make sure we get someone fantastic!


Hello, I was kidding for the incentive :wink:

Thanks to for being the kind sponsor for this forum!
