I Fully agree.

I think it may pay off to search for people who suffer "Delayed sleep 
phase syndrome" to do night shift. They'll be happy and you'll actually 
have someone who is more awake and alert than the average person at that 
time of day.

I think the IT world has a more than average incidence of people with 
this particular syndrome, at least in my experience.

Of course in practice you would want to word your vacancy in such a way 
it doesn't sound silly. But I think it could be worth it to put an 
emphasis on it.

Greetings,
Jeroen
