Dovetail is Hiring a Junior-to-Mid-level .NET Developer

Come work for one of the most progressive development shops in the US. This is an opportunity to work with some of the leaders in the .NET/C# space including Jeremy Miller and Joshua Flanagan – both senior developers, designers, architects, authors, and open source project leaders — with tons of experience. We use cutting edge project practices and our testers and information developers are integrated with the development team.

We’re building a new software product line using pioneering practices and technologies, such as:

  • Test-driven development
  • Continuous integration
  • Behavior-driven design
  • Domain-driven design
  • HTML, CSS, Javascript (jQuery)
  • ASP .NET MVC
  • C# 3.0, .NET 3.5, Visual Studio 2008
  • SQL 2008
  • NHibernate 2.x
  • LINQ2NHibernate
  • StructureMap
  • Selenium Core and Selenium RC
  • StoryTeller for automated acceptance testing

Who we’re looking for || Dovetail Software is staffing a team for an innovative software project. We’re looking for junior- to mid-level software developers with demonstrable C# (preferably .NET 2.0 or later) and HTML/CSS experience (not necessarily ASP.NET, just web development in general). Any experience with test-driven development or automated unit testing in general is a huge plus.  Also, participation in the community (attendance of events, avid blog reader + commenter, or maybe you even have a blog yourself) will put you firmly in the running for this position. We’re looking for people that believe learning and continuous improvement are primary responsibilities of a software developer. We’re hiring motivated people for a terrific opportunity with a team of recognized .NET and agile community leaders. If you’re not looking to rocket your knowledge and experience fast, please do not apply!

Our development methodology || We are an Agile shop (Scrum/XP, Kanban for tracking). We work without iterations in a continuous stream of development with frequent releases — not long crushing release cycles. We have a collaborative relationship with our customers. We write tests before we write functional code to clarify our design intentions. We keep the build clean. We work in an environment that maximizes communication to minimize the volume of spec documents. We build software that can effectively respond to change. We use open source tools where appropriate, and Microsoft tools where they make sense. We have executive support and visibility all the way up to the owner of the company.

    Wow! I wish that’s how the average .NET developer ad read!

    “We have executive support and visibility all the way up to the owner of the company.”

    That brought a tear to my eye… The other stuff was awesome too but executive support can make or break all the other stuff. When are you opening an office in Raleigh, NC??

    Too bad that US is light years away from me. :)

    Hi Chad,

    I’m a currently working as a Software Dev in London UK, but would love to have the opportunity to come work in Austin for Dovetail. I believe I would make a good addition to the team and have experience that compliments the skills you are looking for; and have even implemented a small production project using Fubu MVC. Would Dovetail be willing to consider a UK candidate?
