Sadly there really aren't any Python user communities between the Bay Area and Los Angeles, so here in Santa Barbara we have to resort to reaching out to our big brothers to the North and South to find much in the way of a Python user base.
So please forgive me for reaching a little farther outside your preferred job listing region, but hopefully you can see our problem and give me just a little slack. My hope is that someone is ready to get away from the big city and consider an opportunity for a job like this in Santa Barbara. Description below. Please contact [hidden email]
