We’re looking for another developer to join our team. I wish there was a less corny phrase for “work hard, play hard” because that is the best way to describe our company. We have a lot of work to do and we take our work and our dedication seriously – but we like to counter that with darts, drinks and good humor (or what we think is good humor). Someone who will thrive in our environment has to be very good at what they do. We don’t necessarily care that you’ve been working with .NET since version 1.0 beta or SQL Server 6.5. We firmly believe in APTITUDE and ATTITUDE. These are paramount to our environment. If those traits are tied for first, the second most important is COMMUNICATIVE. We pride ourselves in our ability to be communicative with our clients, actually, over-communicate with our clients. Most problems in technology and specifically custom software consulting, center around a lack of communication. Having people in our company with those three attributes is what gives us our competitive advantage and is why our customers love us.
Once we know you are sharp, have a good attitude and can speak well, we want to make sure that you will enjoy our collaborative environment. It’s not for everyone and we understand that – but for those who enjoy our level of fun-loving and orneriness, I think it’s the best place you’ll work. We have a Sonos jukebox and play a variety of music over the office speakers. We also have the company surfboard available to employees if it isn’t already reserved.
It takes a quite a while for us to find this right-fit and when we do, we want to make sure we can provide the perks that will make you happy. We provide 3 weeks of PTO and want you to take it – there’s nothing that will kill a good attitude quicker than getting burned out. We have a group health insurance plan through Blue Cross & Blue Shield. Standard issue hardware for new employee’s is a new laptop of your choice – really. In fact, half of the team use Macs. One year anniversaries are celebrated by ordering a new Areon chair. Growing socially and professionally is encouraged through networking and participating in user groups. These are considered as part of every employee review. We like to have pop in the fridge and good coffee available. We typically go on a team lunch once a week. Unless there’s a customer request to take care of, on Fridays at 4:00, we turn off the code and turn up the music to play darts, drink libations and have a laugh.
If this has piqued your interest or know someone that sounds like a good fit, let us know.

Software development is a team-based endeavor because of the complexity involved in launching a new system. Gone are the days when one developer can be point on the whole back-office software stack.

One definition of rot is the process of deterioration. Something that decays over time. By this standard – software rots like food in the Nebraska heat. It’s true. If your software isn’t regularly updated, it deteriorates and breaks down. Consider this – software is written to work at a moment in time…but time marches on. […]

Many of us remember the grade school game Telephone. It was funny to see how a simple message would get garbled as it was passed along from person to person. But it’s not as funny when that message is a critical business requirement that will be turned into software that will power your business. Yet, […]
