Chicago Web Designers/Web Developers Message Board › My elite squad of c# developers needs another member

My elite squad of c# developers needs another member

Brian B.
Chicago, IL
Post #: 9
Can you parachute behind enemy lines in the dead of night and abstract a class without making a sound? Really? Wow. That's pretty impressive. We usually just do that sitting in an office chair during the day.

PerkSpot is hiring.

Must have's
C# 3.5+, MVC (ideally, MVC3), linq, databases, OOP, TDD, all that obvious stuff you have to know to be taken seriously as a c# dev these days.

If you worked here last month, you would have:
Pair programmed on our insurance rate engine (codenamed "Vulture")
Coded single sign on into our authentication service (codenamed "Osprey")
Devised cache invalidation logic for our content management system (codenamed "Condor")
Come up with another cool piece of service-based application logic and picked a really cool name for it. (Birds of prey only, please.)

Next month you could:
Help us buy/borrow/reinvent the wheel to build a customizable rules engine for insurance eligibility.
Figure out how to chop features out of one of our legacy apps to slowly rebuild it over time.
Help the sales guys build an offer administration tool.

About our dev team: There are six of us: a back end c# guy, our business analyst, a front end c# developer, a user experience guy, the tech lead and the product lead. Your role would be to do c# programming: service layer work, controllers, and other tasks as assigned.

About our company: PerkSpot is a fast-growing 20 person start up company. Our people are divided more or less equally among inside sales, customer/vendor support, and technology. We have beers on Fridays and we *will* crush the Braintree team in the Chicago startup dodgeball tournament next week.

Our development methodology uses scrum. Our team works in self organized 2-4 week sprints. We do daily standup meetings, keep a burndown chart, and poker all our product features. If you don't know what scrum is, watch this. It has explosions.

Apply if you:
Are smart and get stuff done.
Want a place where you can play a big role.

Do not apply if you:
Don't like change.
Need a written spec complete with appropriate milestones and sign offs.
Want to hide in obscurity.

To apply (techjobs at
1) Send us a resume listing your numerous qualifications.
2) Write a cover letter explaining why we would be fools to miss this opportunity to interview you.
3) Tell us why this code sucks:

int tzO = TimeZone.CurrentTimeZone.IsDaylightSavin­gTime(DateTime.Now) ? -4 : -5;

Sorry, we can't do any visa sponsorship. If you aren't legal to work onsite in Chicago we cannot help you.
