Edit 8/22/2008: We had a good response to this and other postings, and we’ve filled the position. I’m sorry, but I don’t expect us to grow again anytime soon.
The take away from this is that we have an open slot for a junior developer, and we’d like to fill that slot with somebody who wants to grow. Josh and I were talking yesterday about our experiences coming up and how we effectively received zero mentorship. I think our Dovetail team is positioned to be a great place for developers to grow in skill and experience. For that matter, Austin is a great place to be a .Net developer because of the richness of our developer community.
Work for one of the most progressive development shops in the US. This is an opportunity to work with some of the leaders in the .NET/C# space including Jeremy Miller and our recent addition, Joshua Flanagan – both senior designers and architects with tons of experience. We’re building a new software product line using pioneering practices and technologies, such as:
- Test-driven development
- Continuous integration
- Behavior-driven design
- Domain-driven design
- ASP .NET MVC
- C# 3.0, .NET 3.5, Visual Studio 2008
- SQL 2005
- NHibernate 2.x
- StoryTeller, FIT
Who we’re looking for || Dovetail Software is staffing a new team for an innovative software project. We’re looking for junior- to mid-level software developers with demonstrable C# (preferably .NET 2.0 or later) and HTML/CSS experience (not necessarily ASP.NET, just web development in general). Any experience with test-driven development or automated unit testing in general is a huge plus. Also, participation in the community (attendance of events, avid blog reader + commenter, or maybe you even have a blog yourself) will put you firmly in the running for this position. We’re looking for people that believe learning and continuous improvement are primary responsibilities of a software developer. We’re hiring motivated people for a terrific opportunity with a team of recognized .NET and agile community leaders.
Our development methodology || We are an Agile shop (Scrum/XP). We work in short iterations, not long crushing release cycles. We have a collaborative relationship with our customers. We write tests before we write functional code to clarify our design intentions. We keep the build clean. We work in an environment that maximizes communication to minimize the volume of spec documents. We build software that can effectively respond to change. We use open source tools where appropriate, and Microsoft tools where they make sense. We have executive support and visibility all the way up to the owner of the company.
