Yeah, I saw that, which is why I suggested not being too picky about specific requirements.
If you have at least two or three years of solid Solr experience, that would make you at least
worth looking at.

Well, it's kind of hard to find a person if the requirement is "10 years' experience with
Solr" given that Solr was created in 2004.

  I occasionally get pinged by recruiters looking for Solr application developers... here’s

  Even if you don’t strictly meet all the requirements... they are having trouble finding...
anyone. All the great Solr guys I know are quite busy.
