Every so often I run across a website that mentions they have jobs available. Since there are Kossacks who are looking for jobs, there ought to be a way to let them know about these listings. I'm sure there are also other Kossacks who know of jobs and would like to share the information. I'm not sure the best way to do that but was thinking a weekly round-up where people could post links in the comments might be helpful.
Anyway, below the fold are a couple job openings that I've learned about.

Back to the Roots was founded by Alejandro Velez & Nikhil Arora during their last semester at UC Berkeley in 2009. Two months away from graduation, and heading into the corporate world of investment banking & consulting, they came across the idea during a class lecture of being able to potentially grow gourmet mushrooms entirely on recycled coffee grounds. Inspired by the idea of turning waste into wages & fresh, local food, they experimented in Alex's fraternity kitchen, ultimately growing one test bucket of tasty oyster mushrooms on recycled coffee grounds. With that one bucket, some initial interest from Whole Foods & Chez Panisse and a $5,000 grant from the UC Berkeley Chancellor for social innovation, they decided to forget the corporate route, and instead, become full-time urban mushroom farmers!After ordering both their table-top aquaponics kit and their "grow your own" mushroom kit, I poked around the website a little more and found that they too are hiring. In their Oakland, CA off they need a Vice President for Sales and Key Account Managers for the East and Midwest; they also need local "Brand Ambassadors" in many parts of the country. More information is available here.
Inspired by the idea of producing local, fresh food from what was an urban waste stream, Back to the Roots has since grown to create the Grow-Your-Own Mushroom Garden which lets anyone, across the country, grow their own gourmet mushrooms at home as well!
If others are aware of job openings, please list them in the comments. And good luck to all job-seekers!
