[vox-jobs] [fwd] Linux software engineering job [at PenguinComputing, bay area]

I'm unclear whether this is located in Fremont or SOMA district of SF.
(Their human resources person's email included Penguin Computing's Fremont
address, but at the end of the job posting, it mentions SOMA.)
I've asked, and if I hear back, I'll update the posting I put up over
at http://www.lugod.org/jobs/

In the meantime...
