All, I'm looking to hire a .NET analyst / developer. A general job description is below. If you're interested please pass on a CV or direct any questions to denver dot gibson at arup dot com.
The Systems Development and Integration (SDI) team operates in an environment that is very much an environment of consulting and technology. We are very client focused and specialise in quick turnaround of bespoke/custom solutions; anything from Excel, Access, Winforms, Web, using standalone or distributed architecture. Most solutions include a consulting component and each project has a varying degree of focus on the consulting and technology aspects.
Our core arenas are:
1) Program / Portfolio management solutions; and
2) Project Management solutions.
3) Sustainability Tools.
... with a number of emerging arenas as well.
We operate in a rapid application development environment suited to someone with a flexible style. A focus on delivering user functionality over and above technical sophistication is a must, and a keen eye for user interface design
is important. Our development tools are primarily Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008.
• We are looking for someone with a solid grounding in commercial software development and a person who can work autonomously in a non-structured environment with experience delivery products from start to finish.
• You will be able to wear different hats: as developer, as analyst as client facing consultant (if requested).
• You will possess excellent communication skills and be as comfortable developing solutions as you are engaging with clients and gathering requirements.
1) VB.NET programming with some demonstrable experience in delivering WinForms apps.
2) SQL 2008 - TSQL, SSIS etc etc
3) Developing C# experience.
4) Demonstrable experience working with, and developing web services
what's the rem range Mantra? I know a few .net pepes.
Most of the early work on a particular app we're supporting was done in VB.NET, hence the requirement. We're moving more and more into C# though.
We'd be looking between $60k - $75k package depending on experience. Also, you'd get to work for me, which is an awesome perk! :D

Fair dinkum?! Where do I sign!?

Fair dinkum?! Where do I sign!?Send me a CV noob...

My dream of working for Mantra, crushed by a throwaway comment. D:
Mantra, will you drive them to work in your phat yummy Audi SUV?
I've never understood the irrational hate for VB.NET. It's just another CLR language, get off your low horses.
Phalanger is where it's at, noobs.
sorry dazhel :(
Mantra, will you drive them to work in your phat yummy Audi SUV?No.. well, if they live around the corner, maybe :P They can touch it though, and I might let them sit in the drivers seat and make brooom brooom sounds :)
And yeah, since .NET, hating on VB doesn't really make much sense to me. I personally don't care whether you write it in swahili.NET, as long as it's .NET :P
I don't need to be employable, I do the employing. I like C-based syntax, so everyone here toes the mother f***en line. Everytime I need to go near VB (legacy app, VBA) I make sure I kill a kitten later to feel better.I've never understood the irrational hate for VB.NET. It's just another CLR language, get off your low horses.Same. Most vb.net devs dont winge about c#, but not the other way round. Learn both, double your employability.
Curly braces > you.
The above is not entirely serial. Please don't cry on me. <3
I don't need to be employable
Ahaha. The old logical fallacy of the self-employed!
Was it not you the other day complaining about some annoying SQL numbered index feature a client requested? You shoulda served up a bit of this attitude on them ;-)
"The f*** you want to do that. I'm programming this database and you will have the database design that I give you. Why? Because it will work. Unless of course you have done an advanced relational database design course that I don't know about. Have you?"
I know a guy that does business like this. It works pretty well for him surprisingly. Doesn't have many friends though.
Ahaha. The old logical fallacy of the self-employed!I refused a VB.Net fixer-upper job just last week.
As I mentioned, it came down to money. If someone offers enough money then we do VB. Its only happened once so far though, and that involved discarding an awful VB.Net project and rebuilding it in C#. We also do a bit of VBA, but that's a bit different.
My VB.Net hate is just carry-over baggage from by VB6 hate. Sure, visual basic may have reformed and fixed its ways now, but that doesn't mean I have to forgive it for past crimes.

Give me $60k a year and I'll keep my current job.
PS do you know any of your electrical engineers?
(Cut and paste straight out of a directory called 'examples' in my home directory which I have been carrying around for slightly over a thousand years!)
Give me $60k a year and I'll keep my current job.Will you actually do anything for the $60k, or is it just for the pleasure of giving you moneys? And no, I don't know many of our electrical engineers very well. I'm more on the consulting side of the firm. So management consulting, program management and all that other wankery. Standard project for me:
Client: Our management systems and processes are a mess, come and help us expensive people!
Me: Your data is all wrong, you're noobs, and you can't manage everything the same way. I have a software development team that can fix that, as well as expensive consultants to define your management strategy.
Client: My hero! Here, we will give you $250k to do it.
Me: It'll cost $500k.
[flurry of software development activity]
Client: Hey, you're very attentive and charming, can I recommend you do this for our friends at [some place]?
... now that I put it that way, I feel dirty...
Client: Hey, you're very attentive and charming
Wait, isn't the prostitu...err...consultant supposed to call the client attentive and charming and not the other way around?
