Data Systems Admin for Homeless Service Agency (Seattle, WA)

Hi.  Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC) has an opening for its 
Data Systems Administrator position.  We are one of the largest 
providers of homeless services in the Pacific Northwest, and 
particularly focus on serving chronically homeless adults who are 
mentally ill or chemically addicted, or otherwise disabled or 
vulnerable.  We serve over 5,000 people a year, have approximately 300 
full-time staff, including 7 in the Information Services department.

DESC makes heavy use of free/open source software, and our main data 
systems all use Postgres.  We have developed a (PHP) web app called 
CHASERS that is used for agency management, and plan on releasing it as 
open source software.  There is some information (possibly a little out 
of date) at http://chasers.desc.org/.

I think DESC is an interesting place to work in IT, particularly if 
you're interested in postgres and open source stuff.  A link to our jobs 
page, which has the full announcement is below.

Thanks!

Ken Tanzer
