Business Application Developer – (Oklahoma City) submit resume

We're looking for someone whose primary source of professional pride is developing .NET web applications that help others maximize their efficiency and effectiveness.  You love code and the technical aspects of programming, you're even guilty of doing it in your spare time, but you never lose sight of the business application developer's most important objective — provide users with applications that enhance their abilities, making them more efficient and effective.  As a C# Business Application Developer at a la mode, you play a crucial role in the productivity of nearly all our employees.

We need someone whose attention to detail and work ethic set a high standard for everyone around them.  Every goal - whether monthly, quarterly, or project - is created and solved by every team.  You understand that acquiring new customers and retaining existing customers is not just the goal of Sales, Marketing, and Customer Support; it's also your goal as the C# Business Application Developer.  The success of this company is each and every person's job and we take a lot of pride in our work.

You live by that notion, too. That everyone working in silos leads to a disjointed team and counterproductive competitiveness. You're excited to work with us because you love a team that creates and reaches company goals together, while also recognizing individual efforts. You want people to notice your keen technical and analytical skills, as well as your impressive task and time management skills. You been complimented on your ability to always stay positive and professional, even during really challenging projects or situations. Last, but not least, you have an ability to make complex issues appear simple. As a result, people regularly seek your advice and assistance.

If this ad just described you, you might be a good fit for a la mode.

What you get to do:

  • Help our Technical Support, Sales, Shipping, Accounting, and Marketing departments maximize productivity by building top notch customer relationship management and point-of-sale .NET applications.
  • Perform usability research, gather requirements, contribute ideas, execute unit tests, implement solutions, and provide support for every project (basically, the entire SDLC). This isn't a code-the-spec position - you will have a voice here and your constructive input is encouraged.
  • Write and optimize SQL & T-SQL scripts, including procedures, views, functions and triggers - if you're not currently a SQL black belt, you'll quickly become one.

What you're good at:

  • C# - 2.0, 3.5, 4.0 frameworks
  • .NET web applications (ASP, web services, WCF)
  • JS, CSS, HTML, XML
  • Object oriented design principles and patterns
  • Relational database design
  • SQL & T-SQL
  • Managing your tasks and time
  • Written and verbal communication

Bonus points for:

  • jQuery experience
  • HTML5 experience
  • Leadership experience - formal or informal (i.e. you've been the "go-to" person)
  • TFS experience
  • VS unit testing experience
