I would expect more fluffy action verbs for a "Best of the Best" job. For example:

- Visualize
- Lead
- Guide
- Create

Instead, I see:

- Assist
- Monitor
- Install
- Help

Sounds like a good job but looking at the duties, is it enough to attract the "Best of the Best"? Do you even really need "Best of the Best"? Any contractor worth their salt could do this job for $50/hr. Plus, there's all the replication. Just the thought of it makes me ill
