Valve has been poaching Linux developers for years and there's no sign of them slowing down, but in fact are still hiring.

There's a new Valve job posting where they're looking for a software engineer to work on SteamOS. The posting mentions, "As a senior software engineer on the SteamOS team, you'll be part of an extremely motivated and experienced group of people. You'll help design SteamOS features and architecture and be a key coding contributor. You'll design and deliver new features to enable new living room experiences, deliver digital content to millions of customers, enhance community features, and drive revenue. Must be experienced in all phases of a project lifecycle and have great customer focus. May mentor other developers."

Experienced applications should be familiar with Debian Linux, 5+ years experience in commercial software development with low-level languages, ideally be knowledgeable about Linux graphics and audio, and have strong computer science skills.
