My brother works for Overstock, and is looking for some software developers
and testers. Based on what I'm reading in the descriptions, it seems to be
Java based. If you're interested, email 'ttoponce at overstock.com' with your
resume.

I can see below that the formatting of the HTML mail didn't turn out too
well, so I am sorry about that. However, it seems you could search between
"*Position:*" in each of them.

Any questions, let me know.

Thanks!
