Job Description

Why we need you:

We have a great application with a codebase that needs some modernizing and streamlining. We have TDD at our core but coverage could be better. We have DI but the implementation is weak.


You are proud of your DRY and SOLID principles and your well tested code. You enjoy digging into an old function that could use a tune-up and aren’t overwhelmed if a pattern needs to be updated / re-implemented across the codebase. You don’t point fingers, you solve problems.  You learn from your peers and share your learnings with them. 


Our team is small and free of bureaucracy. We make informed decisions and move fast and that’s the way you like it. You are looking to be part of a team where your impact will be noticed.


Your core tenets:

DRY / SOLID Principles

Modern server-side development techniques

Experience with O/RM tooling (EF Code First and Migrations or Dapper a plus)

Recent web development techniques including SPA frameworks and JS Unit testing

Commitment to automated testing

Commitment to continuous integration/delivery

DevOps mentality

Pragmatic prioritization

Rapid, tight delivery cycles

Commitment to continuous technical growth

Clear communication skills (ability to distill complicated technical concepts into business vernacular and back)
