Flickr has found a way of making sure it only hires people who know what they're doing. The company has hidden a link to recruitment ads for Software Engineers, MySQL DBAs and Mobile Engineers in the source code of the front page of its website.

The idea is similar to that used by EA and W+K in 2010, who embedded ASCII figures into the source code of gaming and culture sites frequently targeted by the gaming demo, to promote Dante's Inferno.
