The inattention paid to the correct writing of the req would lead me to
view the ad with a great deal of skepticism. At this point I don't get too

That said, the req tells me that they really want more of a code
troubleshooter who is comfortable with the entire web stack, front-to-back,
a la something like MEAN.
