Project Description

Uncle Sam – we want you! If, that is, you are a software engineer who knows the latest stuff, an experienced programmer, and a fast learner of new languages and scripting.

What we need done is technical project management, hands-on code fix and feature implementation, and software quality assurance.

Sign on for the duration, and you’ll get $30/hour ($750 fixed price payment for your trial work that leads to a successful hire). We work with you through one of several approved staffing and payment platforms which will charge a percentage fee on your gross earnings, but you understand how those are.

Also, because of W-2 processing, for US citizens and permanent residents the pay rate is $24/hour.

We need software engineers living in the United States who:

• Understand current software development practices and tools, including

1. Virtual environments

2. Source control

3. Remote development

4. Issue tracking

5. Build and test automation

6. Networking management

• Can do general coding and scripting – you need to be an experienced programmer in at least one of Java, C, and .Net

• Understand programming well enough to learn new languages or scripting quickly

• You also need these non-technical skills:

• Speak and write capably in English (meaning, what Americans speak; it doesn’t have to be British)

• Video Skype capability, webcam, and you know how to use them to talk with us and do daily work.

• 40 hours per week available for this job.

How to qualify

1. Show us who you are. We need verifiable identification, online skills tests, and a brief Skype video interview. Sorry, this part is not paid, but it won’t last more than a week, and if you’ve got the motivation, you’ll be done in a few hours.

2. Try out the job. During a one-week fixed-price trial assignment, prove to us that we should give you the full-time position of 40 hours/week at the job’s hourly rate. We’re looking for progress and dedication; if you show that, we may have other positions in for you even if you don’t get the assignment quite right.
