CodeSherpas is looking for new talent
Just over 5 years ago we started CodeSherpas with a vision - the nature of software development is changing, and we wanted to be on the forefront of that change. Our jobs are many and varied - sometimes training and mentoring, sometimes augmenting existing staff, sometimes the project is ours and ours alone. Sometimes we work at home, sometimes on client-site. We bring the deep experience we have developed to bear on our client's projects, and have a strong reputation doing so.
The time has come for us to broaden ourselves; we are looking for a couple of passionate, self-motivated software engineers who want the opportunity to take their expertise to the next level. Are you interested in working for a company where your skillset is the product, and the company invests in it? Are you interested in working someplace where even the owners write code, and there are no 'pointy-haired bosses'? Are you interested in solving a variety of interesting technical problems? Have you been dabbling in recently emerged technologies and want the opportunity to use them full-time in mission-critical production applications?
As consultants, our jobs tend to take us around the Northern Virginia and Washington DC area. Sometimes we work at home, sometimes in the Reston area, and sometimes in DC. We know commuting in the DC metro area is tough, we do it ourselves. Despite this, we strive to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
We're not looking for rock stars... we're looking for orchestra members. We're not looking for ninjas... we're looking for Sherpas. We do the technical heavy-lifting.
Does that sound interesting? Lets talk.
