Long shot, but putting it out there (co-founder)
This is a long shot and anyone pursuing their IE would probably have to focus 100% on that goal, but I am putting this out there in case someone happen to be interested.
Wanos is a startup in the Wan Optimization space. WanOp is great tech, but IT Managers more often than not increase bandwidth rather than going the WanOp route because there is simply not a hard ROI on the tech. Wanos attempts to fix this with a WanOp solution with real ROI.
The project is growing and more hands are needed. Network skills is of course a given on this list, but linux and moderate dev/scripting skills are also needed.
Anyone interested can contact me via the site http://wanos.co
