I recently (like yesterday) started a new gig, and as part of that we’re building out our already fantastic tech team. The official job descriptiony thingy is below, but if you have questions, grab me on Twitter (@jeremywright) or Skype (jeremy_wright)!
And, yes, I’ll have more info on the move, what it means, what we’re building as time goes on. For now, too much work to pause and blog (which is such a good thing). It is good to be back in the startup world!
BNOTIONS Hiring Junior and Senior Devs
BNOTIONS is a programming and development fraternity. We build the tools, technology, platforms, services and applications for agencies, clients and startups. We are always hiring talented developers as we are always growing and because there are occasionally casualties during our weekly live-streamed talent show, Harth Night Lite.
If you’re the kind of developer that scoffs at inefficient code, believes proper config files can be poetry and have made at least one saint tear up at your PHP or Ruby (or whatever!) then we should talk. Or battle. We could battle to the pain.
So what is life at BNOTIONS like? It’s like Shredder’s Lair from TMNT. Only with slightly fewer skateboards, slightly more monitors and roughly the same number of mutant turtles (of indeterminate age). We work hard, play harder and skype random links all.day.long.
WHAT’S OUR NOTION (GET IT? HAR HAR HAR) OF A GREAT DEV? - You gotz the kommunication skillz - You can focus on great code, with efficiency - You don’t need someone to manage your every minute (but wouldn’t mind a mentor) - You want to be part of a team that gives a damn - You don’t mind being a bit crazy
THE SKILLS WE B (SO FUNNY) LOOKING FOR - Total domination of the LAMP stack - Server-Side language skills (Ruby, PHP, Java, Python etc) - Mobile know-how an asset (iPhone, Android, Mobile Web, etc) - Familiarity with toolkits (JQuery, AMFPHP, etc) - Deep bromance with OSS products (WordPress, Kohana, Rails, etc) - A perversion for APIs (Twitter, Facebook, Google Maps, etc)
GETTING TO THE TOP OF OUR LIST - You get the social media thing - Flexibility - No ego, outside of knowing you’re the best developer you know (don’t worry, we’re all the best we know too!) - Based in Toronto or Kelowna (or willing to relocate)
