    Uh?

    Definitely not a very senior position. They don't even know what a good bluff looks like. Either they don't know the products they are looking for or didn't proofread at all. Not how you approach a "senior" position.

    It's a mid-level generalist role, so has to be for a very small company.

    Jersey is not where you normally hire senior people.

    Just FYI... senior positions aren't listed anywhere. Not real ones.

    A top 10 global IT services company

    Haha. I doubt it's actually in the top 10. Or is this contract work?

    The top 10 only get so big. It's not a big range.



  • @mlnews keeps posting these things that look more like jokes than anything else. I thought that was the point?

    This is absolutely 100% real. All I see in my state.



  • 15 bucks an hour probably.



  • I swear I've seen 20+ different places saying they are Top10... at least one of those are not!

    Depends on how you measure? Maybe they are Top 10 in poor customer service?



  • 14.6 billion in revenue and 120,000 employees according to the Wikipedia page for them.

    So a decent size company. I would guess working for one or more of the company's customers rather than on anything internal.

    You would think that at that size they might be able to afford a better template for recruitment posts though...

    This sounds like they are hiring for a third party.
