If you'd be willing to discuss flexible work schedules or part time work,
I'm a Sr level engineer.

I am comfortable working with adult content.

I have a congressional award for fulfilling a congressional request to
locate and perform data recovery of a database which contained astronaut
training records for Space Shuttle missions related to the Hubble Space
Telescope.  I recovered and rebuilt a filesystem from a long dead server
and provided this filesystem in an archive to my supervisor.  Someone
else interpreted the data.

At Space Systems Loral, I once eradicated the Funluv virus from 3000
machines after a peer of mine, with admin access to all our windows
machines, became infected.  Our management calculated that each machine
would total 2 hours of technician work to repair.  Killing it was hard
because the virus would recreate itself if you deleted it, and would
execute itself if you stopped it. So I wrote a batchfile that renamed the
infected file, then I had the script make a folder with the same name as
the original virus. I could then stop the virus and delete the infected
file.  Because the virus didn't know how to delete a folder, it couldn't
recreate its self or reexectue its self.  Writing this script and executing
it on all of the 3000 machines I could reach at that time took 30 minutes.
 Deploying the fix was made possible by a tool I had already written called

I require a flexible schedule because I have joint custody and I am not
willing to work during the hours I have my child.  My schedule is something
I have control over, but for the sake of argument, I would prefer to work
up to 3 12 hour days a week.  I, personally, work better when I can devote
an entire day to my job.  That's on top of the exceptional work I already
do. On call from home is optional.  On call on sight is negotiable.
