I need to hire some people into my department at CarSpot.com, I cannot share very many details right now but I'm hoping to get clearance to make some kind of announcement before Q1 2008. I am looking for the following full time positions:
- An entry level person, hiring from now to December. UW-Whitewater, UW-Madison, MSOE, UW-Milwaukee December grads with .Net classroom experience are encouraged to apply. This is a good chance to start your career doing real work. May 2008 graduates, save my address.
- An Electrical Engineer: I can't share solid requirements on this position yet but will open dialogue with interested parties.
- A very solid mobile/compact framework person, or an extremely solid .NET developer who can demonstrate ability to very quickly become a mobile superstar. This position is unique in that it offers a combination of maintenance of current products, creation of new products, and will involve some open-ended R&D.
- An all-around .NET person. Windows Forms, Web Forms, Web Services, SQL skills, knowledge of UML, design patterns, likes NUnit and NCover, possibly interested in doing high level design.
It would be fantastic if one of these people had strong Win32/COM/C++ skills. I will also consider local consultants for some specific work.
As I mentioned before, I can't make any public announcement right now, but I can share the details in person with serious candidates. I don't think I can over-state how f()*&*!ng cool CarSpot is right now. We are taking over a very large space in our current building above the Milwaukee Ale House with a pool table and other niceties. We've got .NET/Windows people, Linux people, MAC people, and there are some very cool things happening right now which should be obvious if I'm considering bringing four people on board. There aren't many places in Milwaukee where beer-infested programmer meetings are expensable, you can get a wireless data card and work in the park, and the department head (moi) will feed you ribs and sweet corn during the summer. Flexibility is critical here, once trust is established and it's shown that you get your work done, you are given a long leash. I work from home sometimes, I work from the bar downstairs sometimes, some people work from the park, etc.
We will be working with recruiters very soon, but for now forward resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org .
