Arlington Ruby Message Board › CodeSherpas is Seeking New Talent
Just over 5 years ago we started CodeSherpas with a vision - the
nature of software development was changing, and we wanted to be on
the forefront of that change. Our jobs are many and varied -
sometimes training and mentoring, sometimes augmenting existing staff,
sometimes the project is ours and ours alone. Sometimes we work at
home, sometimes on client-site. We bring the deep experience we have
developed to bear on our client's projects, and have a strong
reputation doing so.
The time has come for us to broaden our craft; we are looking for a
couple of passionate, self-motivated software engineers who want the
opportunity to take their expertise to the next level. Are you
interested in working for a company where your skillset is the
product, and the company invests in it? Are you interested in working
someplace where even the owners write code, and there are no
'pointy-haired bosses'? Are you interested in solving a variety of
interesting technical problems? Have you been dabbling in recently
emerged technologies and want the opportunity to use them full-time in
mission-critical production applications? Have you been using them in
production and are ready to broaden your horizons?
We currently spend most of our time in a web-centric development
NodeJS, Backbone, MySQL, Redis, Linux, OSX, and so on. We also
occasionally dabble in Objective C and Clojure, and see those
technologies as crucial to the future. When we run a project we
prefer 2 week iterations, constant feature delivery, and reflection on
the work to improve ourselves. We know and love git. We like to
publish, speak at conferences, record screencasts, and promote the
local user group communities. If you think you can contribute to a
team doing these things, we want to talk to you.
As consultants, our jobs tend to take us around the Northern Virginia
and Washington DC area. Sometimes we work at home, sometimes in the
Reston area, and sometimes in DC. We know commuting in the DC metro
area is tough, we do it ourselves. Despite this, we strive to maintain
a healthy work-life balance.
We're not looking for rock stars... we're looking for orchestra
members. We're not looking for ninjas... we're looking for Sherpas.
We do the technical heavy-lifting.
Does that sound interesting? Lets talk. email@example.com
