I am also developing a number of small open-source projects, so you can evaluate my coding skills. These projects are:

  • Sexy Combo - my favorite and most successful jQuery plugin (more than 1000 downloads from Google Code only). It'sa widget that aims to replace default browser selectboxes - users can not only select values from the list, but also to type them. Nice, usable, customizable, object-oriented. You are strongly encouraged to take a look at it.
  • Rich Array - jQuery plugin for performing various operations with arrays.

  • Hot or Not - Google gadget that displays pics from Hot or Not website in a very attractive form, using tabs navigation.
  • Hot or Not Lite - the same as previous one, but without tabs feature.

About you

I want to work in a small team of tech guys where I can do amazing things that will help people. I would like to work as a JavaScropt programmer, but can also do server-side coding. If I will be allowed to use jQuery in my work, it would be a great plus. Expected salary is $1000 / month.
