Working on some fun new software engineer jobs, exclusively with a client in the Woburn, MA area:

Our client, a well-known, public company in Woburn, MA, with a small development group in MA (15 engineers) has exclusively engaged me to add 5 new engineers to their team.
This is the best of both worlds – great benefits and investment in the tools/technologies you need + bleeding edge “cool” stuff – CLOUD and VIRTUALIZATION and NETWORKING!

We have three groups we are recruiting for:

Web Development – these are folks with OO web skills – Ruby/Rails/RoR/PHP/Python/Perl – any/all mix is fine

Core engine/software engineers – complex, threaded C++ work — should have a heavy duty CS background. More Senior/Principal software engineer.

SQA – manual and automation, with more emphasis on automation. Work in a wireless, networking or cloud software company is a huge bonus.

Scott Dunlop, The Bivium Group SUPERSTAR Software Engineers, multiple openings: core software, apps dev – C#, C++, Java, E-commerce

Full job description is here

Long time Bivium client seeks multiple experienced Software Engineers with backgrounds in any of the following areas: hard core software systems that are highly algorithmic – high transactional data driven applications – windows C# design and development, e-commerce.

Join a team of 20 developers working on highly complex systems and applications that collectively manage the backend of numerous high traffic, data eCommerce sites generating more than 150 transactions every minute. This includes all of the core algorithms, systems and applications that manage all of the processing, scheduling, manufacturing systems, shipping and logistics – all homegrown, and the absolute heart and soul of this company’s existence.

Regardless of your area of expertise; server, middle tier or user interface, there are lots of very interesting and highly challenging problems to work on here: performance optimization, massive scalability, algorithms analysis/design/development, VLDB design/development…on the User Interface side of things: UI Developers will create user interfaces for manufacturing control systems used by folks on the shop floor as well as slick dashboards used by executives and many other points in-between.

All development is primarily on the .NET framework, C# and Windows Presentation Foundation (for the UI engineers) is nice to have, but not required.

The CTO here believes that “smart people can learn anything”. Big growth spurt and lots of promotions into leadership here. – package from 70s to 170s!

Scott Dunlop, The Bivium GroupGreat debate here on the the lack of merit to the now ubiquitous whiteboard session & trivial code for Software Engineer/developer job interviews

It’s definitely been my experience that a) Many clients love these sorts of whiteboarding/code sessions and b) There has been fairly low correlation between a good hire and these sessions.

I *do* believe the very best way to evaluate code skills is to have a software engineer/developer bring their own code and talk it through — putting a candidate on the spot to recall a CS 101 detail or to figure out another tic-tac-toe puzzle (thanks Google!) is a great sifting mechanism to get to more good nuggets — but, in this recruiting environment, could turn off more good candidates than it attracts!

Outstanding opportunity – This is NOT your standard J2EE app.  It is high performance distributed computing, very mathematically and algorithmically intense.  It’s much closer to pure computer science than just putting together a lot of open source frameworks.
