For our Treviso, Italy HQ we are looking for a programmer with bit of extra to offer. We need somebody who can fire up photoshop and skin designs, then work on backend performance improvements if necessary. Next moment, you will have to quickly translate email content in the Italian or pickup a phone and talk with our vendor and work with them to resolve an issue. You pretty much take on anything and everything that requires attention right this instant.While you take on various technology challenges, you have to be an expert at one area. You need to be a go to guy for database questions or frontend challenges. Otherwise, you are the person with keen design sense or strong empathy for user experience. Maybe you are the guy who will compete with DHH on Ruby on Rails. You will provide the guidance and help to other team members in one of the technical area.
Are you ready for the challenge?

Good luck, but I think you missed the N :P


Seriously tho, I am not sure it is wise to hire a jack of all trades and except them to be a master of them all - there is so much to take in and keep up to date in each field that it would be near impossible to excel at everything, something will have to give. But good luck :)
