    05/02/19 13:48 PM . Tim Bauer. Cancelled by end client.

    04/18/19 14:24 PM . Tim Bauer. Still waiting on feedback on candidate in play (continue to hold)

    04/04/19 21:43 PM . Tim Bauer. Moving this to hold. Agent just confirmed they have a candidate in front of the hiring manager. We'll reopen if this falls through.

    04/04/19 21:17 PM . Tim Bauer. Repinged agent to reconfirm still open (for now assume it is).

    04/04/19 14:04 PM . Tim Bauer. Continue to source. Only 1 new candidate submitted since last update and looks like they were declined. Still open.

    03/27/19 19:38 PM . Tim Bauer. Updated lead profile to match update from agent

    03/27/19 19:18 PM . Tim Bauer. Agent clarifies that the keys are (1) Python and (2) Java. Big Data systems exposure with those tools is the other aspect of note. Still open and aggressively looking.

    03/25/19 19:18 PM . Tim Bauer. Agent confirms this is still open (no qualified candidates). I have asked what candidates to date have been missing.

    03/25/19 18:58 PM . Tim Bauer. No movement since last update interview wise. 3 candidates were submitted but all three rejected. Checking w/ agent on status.

    03/14/19 12:40 PM . Tim Bauer. Some movement here since last update. 3 new submissions, 2 screened, 4 tabled. Looks like 2 might be still in play.

    02/28/19 14:24 PM . Tim Bauer. Four submitted since last update but looks like they were all declined. Continue to source.

    02/21/19 14:58 PM . Tim Bauer. Since agent asked for more options (candidate that they went to offer backed out on 2/15~) four new candidates have been submitted but looks like they were tabled (no new interviews). So seems to be still open.

    02/14/19 16:51 PM . Tim Bauer. Looks like 7 people were submitted (and then tabled) since last update. So still open and keep going.

    02/07/19 18:29 PM . Tim Bauer. Agent confirms Java depth ('stable' or better) is required for role in addition to Python.

    02/07/19 14:38 PM . Tim Bauer. Shared submission to agent informally to get feedback on how key -- local, work auth status, and/or java depth are to shortlisting.
