Hi, I’m Buddy. I’m looking for a seasoned journeyman or master LAMP developer with experience and skills in all aspects of web application development, front end and back end. You should have experience developing reliable yet light/fast code for high traffic websites, be dedicated to your craft, write code that you are proud of, and love what you do.
Any programmer can write code, I am looking for the person that can write the correct code for each different situation.
I’m not concerned with specifically what programming methodology/approach you use or which frameworks you like (we use Agile/Scrum and the Zend framework), but whichever you use you should be passionate about them. I’d prefer if you were involved in the open source development community at large in some capacity, preferably as a contributor.
I offer a competitive salary which is based on your specific skills and will be in line with the going industry rates for this full time long term contract position.
This is a fully remote gig, I don’t care where you live in the world, our team is already spread out in the US and Europe. Being a full time remote worker, in my experience requires a certain kind of person (if you have done it successfully great, please skip ahead).
If you haven’t worked full time from home before please know that this is not for everyone, it sounds awesome (it is awesome) but some people need the face time of an office, some people need a hands on manager telling them what to do and when to do it. Did you put your papers or projects off to the last minute in college? Does your work pile up on you at your current gig? If so, this isn’t for you. I’m sorry, but it’s not, let’s not waste each others time.
For those of you still here: Thanks for sticking around, I think I may have something pretty good for you. I have a different philosophy about running a business, I try to build small teams that consist of passionate experts in their roles, where ever they happen to live. There are a few keys to making remote gigs work: Communication is a big one, we are a small group, most of us working from home, or from where ever we happen to be. This spans several time zones and it requires a bit of extra work from all of us to keep in good communication, we use Jira, Basecamp, Campfire, IM, Skype, Google+ and good old fashioned phone calls. But while communication keeps the business running smoothly it is the enemy of programming FLOW, I understand this well. I know that 4 hours of uninterrupted programming time is more productive than 8 hours with chat, email, and phones buzzing. We will work uninterrupted flow time into each day. The times will be subject to how all of our hours overlap, we will make it work.
There is a lot left to talk about and since we’ve only just met it’s difficult to know which parts of the job or team or the projects you will find interesting or have questions about. If you have made it this far in my ad please get in touch with me and we can get to know each other and see if this is the situation for you. If it isn’t we can keep in touch, you never know when we might match up in the future.
Thanks, Buddy
