I can think of a lot of reasons why I would be a good fit for XYZ Inc. I, too, have a fondness for craft beer and foosball in the middle of the day, because I'm a human being and not a soulless robot. I've also been using Microsoft Windows 7 for the last four years, desperately praying for an OS that isn't Windows 8 or Windows 10.
Mostly, though, I'm a computer programmer who loves your matching philosophies of "Don't be a jerk" and "Don't mess up the world too badly." I have a bachelor's in computer science that I've applied to seven years of software development and evaluation. Now I'm looking to apply those skills to a company that has a conscience and a product I would actually use. I thought those two qualities were mutually exclusive until I learned about XYZ.
I'll be following up with you next week. I look forward to speaking with you further about where I might fit with your team.
