SalamanderSoft Is Hiring!–SharePoint, ASP.net or C# Developer
We are looking for an experienced SharePoint, ASP.NET or C# Developer to take over responsibility for our codebase and development procedures. This will be a HOME based role which could be FULL or PART time for the right candidate and with considerable autonomy. Salary will very much depend on the experience of the candidate, but our budget range is likely to be £25,000 to £60,000.
Our product set is written in C# using agile methodologies and has a heavy focus on SharePoint (2007, 2010 and 2013). I am looking for someone who will take responsibility for running the code-base and development process. As well as being a great programmer, I will be expecting you to be able to analyse our current processes, suggest improvements and implement them. You will have significant autonomy and be able to drive best-practices and processes. Preferably you will have experience of test-driven development, agile methodologies, design patterns and refactoring - or a desire to learn them.
The mind-set we are looking for is someone who has a hunger to learn and improve their skills. Although we will provide training time & budget, we are looking for someone whose interest in developing isn't just a 9-5 job. We will not expect you to work outside your hours, but I would expect you to be the type of person who looks to increase their skills in their own-time e.g. reading blogs, playing with new versions of products etc. These wouldn't necessarily be directly related to what you are doing day-to-day, just the mind-set we are looking for.
This role could be full-time or part-time for the right candidate - the quality of the candidate is the main factor. I'd rather have an excellent .net developer, than a mediocre SharePoint one. As this is a home-based role, you will need to be comfortable and effective working from home. Although home-working sounds great it is not for everybody!
As SalamanderSoft is a small company, although your main focus will be on development, you will undoubtedly need to perform other tasks as well, especially when other team members are unavailable. You need be able to use your initiative and get things done. It is highly likely that you will need to work with customers so you will need to be personable and happy doing this. The customer is always right! You will also have a history of delivering successful projects as well as be able to juggle several at the same time.
Any open source contributions will be looked on favourably.
