Job Description

Are you a .NET developer, with a passion for technology, but also know how to nerd out? 

Do you understand the significance of the number 42?

Have you ever dreamed of traveling through time and space in a blue British police box?

Do most people you refer to you by your gamertag, rather than your birth name?

Then this might be the place for you!!!

Our client is looking for experienced  .NET developers who want to share their knowledge and learn new skills in a fun, intense and challenging environment.  While experience is appreciated, the ability to learn and apply new technologies is equally important if not more so.

The Candidate

We are looking for:

  • A good fit with our team. We need someone the team can trust, rely on, hang out with, bounce ideas off of, and generally interact with in a positive way both personally and professionally.
  • An incredibly hard worker. You reliably see tasks through to the end, without supervision, and ask for more. You know when to ask for help and you give bad news early.
  • Super talented, in a general way. On any given day, you may be adding a new feature, tracking down a bug, tweaking a build script, configuring IIS or mining some data.
  • Specifically talented in a programming way. You can instantly visualize solutions to problems big or small. If you’re this sort of person, you’ll know what I mean. If not then this position may not be for you.
  • An effective communicator. You effectively explain concepts, written and verbally, to other developers and non-technical peers. A whiteboard is the natural extension of your brain.

The Position

You will be required to:

  • Participate in daily Scrums, regular retrospectives and iteration plannings, and other as-needed face-to-face, audio- and/or video-teleconferencing sessions.
  • Participate in architecture discussions, design decisions and provide input into all aspects of the system.
  • Write clean code with good nomenclature, sensible tests and comments when necessary.
  • Write unit tests, integration tests, and acceptance tests.
  • Implement new features and fix bugs in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, ASP.NET, C#, SQL and other technologies for both existing and greenfield applications.
  • Evolve databases and manage schema migrations in coordination with new features.

The Technical

You need to have or know:

  • an ability to solve complex problems, communicate clearly, and share a sense of urgency.
  • the capacity to thrive in a small, flexible and dynamic environment, contributing to a high performance, low-stress corporate culture.
  • 2-3 years professional experience utilizing C#, LINQ, ASP.NET MVC, Razor, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SQL and HTTP.
  • knowledge of MVC or MVVM design pattern.
  • git (or other distributed source code management tools) knowledge.

It would be nice for you to have or know:

  • Agile (Scrum, Kanban) processes
  • Domain Driven Design
  • Microservices
  • NServiceBus
  • Knockout JS
  • RavenDB
  • Azure

The Team

We work hard, we have a good time, and we go home. We’re all geeks about something, whether it’s games, comic books, sci-fi, music, wine, beer or sports.

  • We have laptops, dual monitors, solid state drives, and plenty of RAM.
  • We use GitHub, TeamCity, YouTrack, Visual Studio and Resharper. We have MSDN subscriptions. We use a lot of open source.
  • We have morning scrums, a refined product backlog, involved and responsive product owners, and an open mind about methodologies.
  • No one commits directly to master. Everyone’s code is reviewed by someone on the team.
  • We follow distributed systems architecture and are advocates of modern design practices.
