Map Related Job Interview

by Hai-Etlik on 07-11-2012 at 06:30 PM
I just completed a phone interview for a position as a software developer with OpenGeo, an organization that develops a variety of Open Source GIS software. I think it went really well and it sounds like I'll probably be contacted for a face to face interview.
