Will Pate’s on the job market

Will has announced his availability with a blog post entitled Web Marketing Prodigy and Sales Rainmaker Seeks Awesome Job. Frankly, any awesome job worth its salt ought to be seeking him:

I’m moving on from Raincity Studios, because I’ve done my part in getting this startup off the ground and now it’s time for me to take on my next challenge. In just one year we’re now recognized as the best Drupal design firm in the world and one of the best web 2.0 professional services firms in the world. I hit over 170k worth of sales in 2005 and 230k already in the first quarter of 2006 (this could rise before I leave). We’ve almost tripled our staff to meet client demand. [...]
What I’m Looking ForA great job with an awesome company, filled with people who “get it”. I can do the best work for firms that provide web services or are building web application products, work with open source (Drupal is my forte) or social software of any kind. I could also do good things for companies that want to stand apart in industries that need help figuring out Web 2.0 opportunities; such as media & entertainment.

I’d like to stay in Vancouver if possible (it rocks here). Willing to relocate to the Bay Area, Seattle or Toronto; but since I’m a self taught genius type it might be a bit difficult to get a work visa in the US. If your lawyers know how to figure that part out, then game on.

If that intrigues you, then let me just add this (something I’ve already said on his blog): I’ve worked with Will on a few projects now, and I’ve loved every moment of it. Some lucky employer is about to get the whole package: a friendly, smart, talented guy who thinks big but attends to the details.
