I agree - we're (my division at UnitedHealth Group is) hiring Perl and
C programmers that also know PHP (if you know either of those, PHP is
certainly not going to be hard to learn).  For the level of experience
we're hiring at, I'm pretty sure we'll pay quite a bit more than $55k
if your experience can show what you're asking for.  It all depends on
experience and how you can prove your experience is worth what you're

Oh, did I mention we're hiring (it's in Salt Lake)?
