First of all, my apologies to Ed Young, since the posting should have made more 
explicit the link with CouchDB. On the other hand, the position description 
mentions CouchDB and document-oriented DBMSes in general.

Unfortunately, there is no couchdb-jobs list; morevoer, I had read some previous 
job postings that had not been not censured, hence I thought job-related posts to 
be legitimate.

Having said that, we are basing our persistence mechanism on CouchDB, since we 
deal with rather heterogeneous data, like: 3D data, data about graphs (networks), 
geo-spatial data, Census data, data uploaded from users and -most probably- 
gep-spatial binary data.

The data engineer will be mainly in charge of ETL, especially when it comes to 
geo-spatial data, but flexibility and initiative are much valued here.

The project will last until the beginnings of 2015 and the position is full-time.
