Project Lead for Mobile, Web and Desktop Software Development
Our dev firm www.vndx.com is looking for our next badass project lead. We handle web and app development, desktop software programming, IT support and web/server hosting in the San Antonio, Texas area since 2002.
What are the favorite words of a badass project lead?
Agile, framework, API, teamwork
If reading off that string of words got you excited then you should read on!
What would a day look like for this person?
- Get your morning coffee and check project statuses with internal and external teams.
- Then, host a client meeting on our conference room to gather details for a new project, all while being proactive at suggesting innovative concepts (and demonstrating good knowledge of emerging technologies).
- Then document, direct and oversee (QC) internal and external teams to develop innovative, reusable, web-based back end code to be used as components for future web applications. Primarily using PHP, front-end technologies such as jQuery and customizing Wordpress when required.
- Then, host another client meeting demoing progress of their new mobile or web app project.
- You must be obsessed with high performance under high traffic loads! You will push your team to create high performance database procedures, execute SQL query optimization, LAMP server performance audits, and tuning of web servers to be scalable for high traffic.
- You will code on a LAMP stack only if needed (You will manage more than you code though).
- Assist with project estimates and revisions during sales process
- Alert colleagues about emerging technologies, applications and design trends and the opportunities to integrate them into operations and projects.
- BS in computer science or equivalent experience will be considered.
- At least 2 years minimum experience with HTML/XHTML, CSS and XML
- At least 1 year minimum experience working with relational database systems (MySQL and MSSQL Server).
- You are nice, have a positive attitude and are good with people (This is important as you will have contact with our awesome customers). Customers, vendors and partners must immediately feel comfortable with you.
- Medium experience in the Wordpress CMS engine.
- Source control management
The cherry on top!
- Any exposure to technologies such as Memcached, Mongo DB, Redis, jQuery mobile, Android development, iOS development, .NET, VB6 and Node.JS are a plus but not a strict requirement.
- Any knowledge of SQL as well as be familiar with stored procedures, triggers, using query analyzer and knowledge of performance tuning of database systems.
- Bonus if you play an instrument!
More importantly, why would YOU want to be at VND?
- Be part of a growing team. We are going places and we want to share the success with you! Our company is expanding and we are looking for people who are hungry for growth! Become part of the team established to take over the custom app development space in the central US!
- Have Fun. We have a family atmosphere and have strong core values we live by.
- We are always doing cool stuff. Check our appearance at the 2015 Innotech conference in which we brought a tele-presence robot: http://www.vndx.com/vnd-at-innotech-conference-2015
