John,

I’m writing to apply for the web developer position your company listed on the Silicon Florist job board. I had an opportunity to speak to one of the developers already working at Tech Company, Jake Jones, and he suggested I’d be a good match for the position.

I’ve been working in web development for over four years. I work primarily in Python, as you can see on my GitHub profile, but I’m comfortable picking up new languages and frameworks — right now, I’m learning Angular.

I’m particularly interested in working with Tech Company because I’ve had the chance to work with your product. During the recent hackathon you hosted, I had a chance to try out your API and see your documentation. The ease of working with those tools piqued my interest in working with Tech Company.

Enclosed please find my resume and a list of references. I’m available for an interview at your convenience.

Thank you,

Jane Smith
