Team Ada,

I'm originally from Massachusetts (now living in Arizona). I've been tied to Ada for many years as I've placed several
Ada programmers (contractors and full-time) over the years with clients around the country and I'd really like to keep
the members of Team Ada updated on new openings. Below are (4) contract positions I currently have open and are
paying up to 93/hr based on experience. If you have the skills....I'll get you the interview. The positions are located
in Needham, Ma. and I'm very familiar with the hiring manager.  I want to thank you all if I can service the Ada group
in anyway...please don't hesitate to email me. Thanks so much!
