SENIOR SOFTWARE DEVELOPER POSITION
We are seeking Senior Software Developers with strong development experience, to support a government contract. This is a full-time position with benefits.
Unlike many IT consulting and staffing firms, our company was founded and continues to be operated by the technology experts who work directly with these solutions every day. We truly love and understand the technology solutions we offer to our clients. This company is well-versed in Business Intelligence and Data Visualization tools such as MicroStrategy Business Intelligence, Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, and SharePoint Reporting Service.
Our partners came to us with divergent backgrounds: software development, network engineering, business analysis. Their diverse range of experiences ensures that we carry more than a single hammer – and not every problem will look like a nail.
Our management team also understands what it takes to build and maintain successful technical teams in a challenging and competitive job market.
We Are Unique & Eclectic
The employees are diverse, unique and eclectic. In the company offices, the environment is friendly, energetic and challenging – where you can utilize your skills, talents and expertise, and where hard work and dedication are acknowledged and rewarded.
Internal growth within the organization is highly encouraged. If you are seeking a company where your individual efforts and ideals will be seen/heard, then we are possibly the right company for you.
Why Employees like It Here
Ask any employee and they will tell you, “it’s the people and the culture.” We seek out individuals who are upbeat and positive, have a “can-do” attitude, love a fast-paced, constantly changing environment, have a passion for what they do, and an interest in others. We are a company with great flexibility—and we aren’t constrained by policies and procedures. We don’t experience any bureaucracy; we don’t have any “management titles” – every position reports to the CEO, and we are paid strictly on our performance. We each have the autonomy to do our jobs from end-to-end. We eagerly look for advanced training opportunities and our ideas are always heard when we present a thorough plan for implementation of a new product. While we work in the offices 4 days a week, we have the flexibility to work remotely for the remainder of the time. It’s a great entrepreneurial atmosphere.
