Hacker Wanted

Like most in the tech industry, I get emails from recruiters from time-to-time. Most I file in the bit-bucket pretty quickly. But one I received the other day was interesting for the wording used in the job description:

"Self-learner, hacker, open-source advocate who can work on large scale web systems..."

I have never seen the use of the word 'hacker' in a job description before, especially used correctly, with its original, positive connotation.
