Senior Business Application Developer and Tech Lead

CODE Consulting is currently accepting resumes for senior business application developers to work on current and future development projects. We have multiple offerings for this position and will consider candidates who seek full-time employment or contracting opportunities. Remote work (you work from your home) is an option.

Applicants may end up working on various projects over time, involving potentially different and evolving sets of technologies as needed for modern business applications and systems. We expect candidates to have a solid understanding of many modern development technologies (see list below... although we understand that no single candidate will likely be an expert in all of them, which is OK). Candidates should be interested in growing over time and be excited about learning new technologies.

Candidates should be comfortable working with remote and distributed teams and should thus have strong communication skills and be able to build working relationships with coworkers and customers in locations across North America, and possibly beyond. As a consulting company, our developers may be exposed to environments where switching between different projects and customers is a requirement. Candidates should be able to fit into existing development teams with established patterns, tools, architecture, and practices (where needed), and they should also be able to establish all of these on their own for new projects and even contribute to the CODE Consulting development process overall.

Candidates should be comfortable to directly interact with customers and represent CODE Consulting well both in a technical and also as a business professional. Candidates should also be able to lead technical teams or even grow into project manager roles. On smaller projects, we expect candidates to be able to work self-sufficiently without needing much direction or management.

It is also a benefit for candidates to have an interest in learning new technologies, reading about software development, attending user groups and conferences, and engaging with the community. The ability to do technical presentations at such events is a definite plus. If you don't have much experience teaching other developers (or customers), CODE will create opportunities for you to make presentations.

Responsibilities

  • Build modern business applications involving various technologies, techniques, and environments
  • Architect solutions
  • Lead development teams or work independently on small projects
  • Interact with customers, propose solutions, and discuss technical details and business needs a customer may have
  • Collaborate across distributed and diverse teams
  • Measure success and manage the development process

Minimum Qualifications

  • 5+ years of software development experience
  • Strong technical abilities including various developer tools, techniques, and environments
  • Familiarity with modern software development practices
  • Solid understanding of which practices and techniques are beneficial (or detrimental) when applied in various scenarios

Technical Skills

  • Fundamental Cloud Skills (Microsoft Azure, AWS)
  • Cloud Services (web apps, (micro)-services, serverless computing, database,...)
  • HTML5, CSS3, Web Frameworks (Vue.js, Angular, REACT, ASP.NET MVC, ...)
  • Languages (C#, JavaScript/EcmaScript, TypeScript)
  • Data & Databases (SQL Server, NoSQL Databases such as Azure Cosmos DB, Entity Framework)
  • Services (REST/JSON, WebApi-style services, Containers (Docker, Kubernetes,...), WCF)
  • Platforms (.NET, .NET Core, Node.js)
  • Visual Studio & Visual Studio Code
  • Mobile and Windows Desktop development know-how is a plus
  • DevOps
  • Source Control and Asset Management (Git, GitHub, VSTS,...)
  • Current Microsoft Certification (and other certifications) a plus

We understand no single candidate will have all of these skills. However, these are the skills that are important to us and we hope to fill the entire range with multiple hires. The more of these skills candidates have, the better a match it is, but we do not require candidates to match all the skills. Required skills will also change over time as the software development landscape evolves. Candidates should have an interest in growing with new needs.

Improve Your Odds

To apply, please submit your application through the form below. To improve your odds of being considered, please let us know know about your professional accomplishments as a software developer. We are particularly interested in reviewing code samples, videos, articles, blog posts, GitHub repos and contributions, presentations, community efforts, and so on.

Other Information

Candidates for this position can work remotely, although occasional travel may be required. Permanent on-site work at our offices in Houston is also possible. We will consider both full-time employees as well as contractors.

Who We Are

CODE is a developer company, focusing on helping people and companies build better software. We do so in various ways, ranking from consulting and training (our "bread and butter") to community involvements, presentations, writing, and - of course - publishing CODE Magazine. We make ourselves known by providing great value and services, not just to paying customers, but the whole software community in general. We foster a distributed, collaborative community both within CODE as well as outside. We are looking for candidates who see themselves thrive in this type of environment and are excited about this approach.

What We Value:

  • Collaboration: We believe in collaboration and working together, no matter where people are.
  • Empathy: We believe in putting people first.
  • Inclusiveness: We believe in including everyone, no matter their background, race, religion, age, economic status, sex, sexual orientation, nationality, or any similar discriminating labels.
  • Thoughtfulness: We believe in deep thought and reason to achieve the best possible outcomes.
  • Quality: We believe in putting in the effort to make things of high quality.
  • Stakeholder Priorities: We consider it important to think of our customers (and other stakeholders) and focusing first on what the best scenario is for them. We then think about how to make that possible.
  • Positive Impact: We believe in making the developer community better through our various initiatives.

Why You Should Join

You can help us make an impact on the developer community, rather than just a single project or company. At CODE, you will work on various projects and we will seek your input even for initiatives beyond your top priorities. For instance, we will ask for your input on our events, magazine, or products, even if that is not your primary occupation within the company.

We also want our "CODErs" to develop their own careers in various ways, whether that is learning in the form of training and attending events, or whether that is making yourself more visible in the industry through writing, presentations, and more. In short: We aim to make being associated with CODE a positive impact on people's careers even beyond CODE.

We also aim to keep "CODErs" healthy, motivated, focused, and productive. We have a comprehensive benefits and compensation package that goes beyond just financial compensation. Our employees receive a competitive compensation package including medical benefits, retirement plan (with generous match), life insurance, long and short term disability, vacation, sick and holiday pay, casual atmosphere, fitness benefits, and more.

Where We Can Hire

Our headquarters is in Houston, TX (with satellite offices in other places), but our CODErs are all over the planet. We can hire full-time employees in North America and Europe. We engage with contractors all over the world. We are well set up for remote working and distributed teams. However, note that travel to CODE offices as well as events and customer engagements will occasionally be required.
