Software Engineering Job Openings at Transactis

with one comment

I posted the announcement that we’re hiring previously on my blog, but I heard from some people they wanted more details on the positions to be filled, so here it is.

At Transactis, we are looking for enthusiastic software developers who are constantly improving their coding skills, efficiency and technical knowledge, and who love to write and reuse beautiful, high-quality code. Our software is critical for our line of business, so it must be high quality and high performance.

We have immediate openings for software engineers at our Dallas/Fort Worth Texas office. We have a small development team and plan to keep it that way, so the opportunities for personal growth, fresh challenges, and better approaches abound. Transactis offers competitive salaries, bonuses, and a complete benefits program. Furthermore, our software engineers work with the best tools money can buy.

Responsibilities for software engineering positions include: developing new application software, framework and business components ; learning and using new techniques, technologies, and tools; writing unit tests and test suites; designing and developing new product features; and maintenance, bug fixing, and performance improvement of existing software.

If you’re someone others go to for advice on the best way to solve a technical problem, or the person who shares the latest best practices with your colleagues, or can’t wait to tell your friends or significant other about the latest cool thing you wrote even when they won’t really understand it, you could be a good candidate for this position.

A qualified candidate must:

  • Be eligible to work in the United States
  • Be able to relocate, or already live in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area
  • Be very motivated to resolve product issues quickly and reliably
  • Have excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Enjoy being a member of a software development team
  • Thrive on technical challenges and take pride in finding elegant, sustainable solutions
  • Constantly be thinking of ways to improve our productivity, reliability, and code base
  • Have at least 4 years experience developing with the Microsoft .NET framework, ASP.NET Webforms and/or ASP.NET MVC
  • Be familiar with OOD principles and Test-Driven Development
  • Enjoy writing and using unit tests to validate development releases
  • Have at least 4 year’s experience building C# components
  • Have at least 3 year’s experience developing with LINQ, and an ORM/OPF solution such as Entity Framework, NHibernate, XPO, or OpenAccess
  • Have at least 3 year’s experience with Microsoft SQL Server or scalable database design
  • Have at least 3 year’s experience with WCF, SOAP, and/or REST services development
  • Have a thorough knowledge of agile methodologies
  • Have at least 1 year’s development experience with a Javascript library such as jQuery, Prototype, or ExtJS
  • As an added bonus, have familiarity with financial services such as electronic remittance and bill payment
  • As an added bonus, have familiarity with Delphi
  • Rather flip burgers than code in Visual Basic

I have also posted this job announcement to Careers on Stack Exchange.

Update: a more informative version of the ad is now available on LinkedIn, CareerBuilder, and Dice, too.
