In the spirit of "better late than never":

I don't see any problem with this. After all, you're just asking for
talented developers to think about a certain position in a company - nothing
wrong with that.

There is some concern amongst some developers about Gentoo's "position" as
an independent distribution, but I'm sure that this is overrated: what good
would our distribution be if a company offering support for Gentoo wouldn't
hire Gentoo developers :)

Of course, there is some speculation about Gentoo's fame when we would start
creating a list of "available" developers, but that's another discussion
that's already held on -dev (or was it -core, can't remember).
