We’re Hiring a .NET developer

We’re looking for a passionate web developer with at least 4 years experience programming (1 year minimum in .NET) who is hungry to learn alongside a team of well-seasoned developers in Chicago’s Fulton Market. Great writing skills are a HUGE plus.

Why join us?

You’ll hone your development and leadership skills. You’ll learn more about programming, managing, and business here than you will in a large corporate environment. That’s why all 7 members of We Are Mammoth are here today. We wish we had a company like this to work for 10 years ago.

Our company

We’re a development-driven group of 7. We’ve built apps and sites for companies like Starbucks, The Second City, HP, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and BCBS. We also build and sell our own products, like DoneDone (getdonedone.com). We’re avid developers, designers, writers, and thinkers.

What do we use?

We’re a .NET shop. We use SQL Server (05 and 08 depending on the client), Visual Studio (2008, but in the process of moving to 2010), MVC (1.0, but in the process of moving to 2.0), and LINQ, along with our proprietary database and code generator, X2O. It’s an elegant and powerful combination. You’ll enjoy it.

On the front-end, we use a good deal of jQuery with HTML Strict and CSS. We’ll be doing some HTML5 and CSS3 work next year.

We’ve dabbled with the idea of doing some mobile development as well, so we may be working on some iOS and Android apps someday soon.

What you’ll be doing

In the beginning, your main focus will be developing and maintaining a series of retirement and financial apps we’ve built for various clients of one of the largest financial institutions in the country. Here are some things you might be doing in a given week:

  • Architect a data model for a custom app using X2O (our database and code generator).
  • Modify or execute a data loader which updates thousands of employee records on a monthly basis.
  • Modify calculation logic based on client specs.
  • Code services and web pages using the MVC framework.

Skillset (In order of importance)

C#/.NET, SQL and/or LINQ, object-relational DB development, jQuery, HTML, CSS.
