Agile .Net Developer Opportunity in Atlanta

My friend and former colleague Paul Gale is looking to build a strong Agile .Net team in Atlanta.  If you’re interested, here are the details from the man himself:

  • I am looking to build a team of up to 6 (including myself)
    experienced agile .NET developers by the end of 2009.  However, we’re
    trying to hire in a more opportunistic mode, i.e., if a decent
    developer is available we’ll take a look at them, rather than spread it
    out just to fit a hiring program.
  • The company is called Cint. We’re HQ’d in Stockholm (It will be
    easier to explain the exact relationship between the Atlanta dev group
    and our Stockholm dev group to candidates directly).
  • Candidates should have a strong background in TDD ideally in an XP environment. We’ll be pairing too.
  • More to the point this is NOT the type of position
    where someone who fancies trying their hand at TDD, say, should apply.
    You will be tested!  We’re looking for strong players who will bring
    their game with them.
  • Skills aren’t everything though; they must be a good social fit for the team that’s already in place.
  • We’re currently renting space in downtown Atlanta. However, we’re looking to move very soon to Alpharetta, GA close to G400.  (Local folks will know what that means. Others can ask).

    I guess this is the same guy that posted on the Atlanta ALT.NET meetup list…

    What’s the deal with excluding developers without heavy TDD experience? It seems really strange to me to filter candidates based on that.

    I’ve done some TDD, though I’m not doing it on every new project and even throw-away code like some people do (I’m not to the point where I feel naked without tests yet). But the comment “More to the point this is NOT the type of position where someone who fancies trying their hand at TDD, say, should apply. You will be tested!” is a pretty big turnoff. That’s not because I don’t have the TDD background specified (I probably don’t) but because it sounds like I should expect to be a TDD trainer or something. Are you hiring these people to be TDD evangelists?

    Maybe it’s because I haven’t finished my glass of TDD kool-aid just yet.
