Been a busy summer, trying to enjoy the nice weather when it’s been here. Gearing up for another week off, with a BIG family reunion. Should be a wonderful time to see those we’ve not seen in a long time.
On the recruiting front, July ended up being the busiest recruiting month since the “Great Recession” started in Sept 08. I’ve said it before a few months back, and I’ll repeat it here – the recession in technology, in Boston, appears to now be over. The “recovery” it likely going to be a bumpy road, but all the signs I hear & see from clients & candidates, are pointing in the right direction.
On that front, a GREAT NEW job below:
PLEASE: LOCAL candidates in MA only, no visa transfers, consulting firms, phone calls, or contractors.
=== Senior/Principal Software Engineer with leadership potential. Waltham, MA area
Profitable, mature startup. This is a small team in the software engineering group that specializes in working with middle to back-end technologies.
Developing a new, next-gen product. Great team, growing aggressively in 2009. Multiple Bivium hires.
(from 8/13/09 discussion with hiring manager) The key points your resume should demonstrate:
2. Nice to have some JMS (not a must have). Moving to Weblogic and Websphere. That is experience would be a big plus too.
3. The team is 8 people, and 5 of the 8 have less than 4 years experience. Someone who can take on some “technical leadership” or mentoring would get a leg-up on other candidates.
4. Well-rounded engineer – can talk to a customer or colleague as easily as bang out elegant J2EE code
5. Strong top-down SDLC view — not compartmentalized, but someone who can see the
“whole big picture”.
Salary to the 115k area + excellent benefit plan and a very strong engineering team with very low turnover to become part of.
