We would encourage you to write a short informal email to us about your motivation to work with us and your past work, projects and achievements. If you include URLs pointing to your blog or participation in Free Software projects (as a user or developer), that would be very nice. We would love to be blown off our feet by work you've already been doing!

Not just that - we would also like to know more about you as a person. So if you have written (technical or non-technical) articles or content for online or print publications, or you love to sing or play a musical instrument and so on, please do write about that as well. We would be equally interested in knowing about other things that drive you in life.
