Help Wanted: LAMP programmer needed for small but mighty Austin software company

Help Wanted Poster

UPDATE: This position has been filled, BUT, we anticipate hiring more developers, both client and server side, over the next few months. If you have professional Mac or Windows client development or professional LAMP development experience, and want to work at a really good startup, drop me a note with your resume.

I work for a small but well established software company here in Austin. We are five years old this month and have an established base of great corporate customers. Our principle product has been a Windows desktop program, but over the last year or so we’ve developed a server side counterpart that has proved a great success in the market place.

So far our server product has been been written in house with the help of some friends. We need a great LAMPhp developer to take charge of this server product and take it to the next level. The person who takes this job and runs with it will be in a position to make a significant direct contribution to our bottom line. This is a very high visibility position, you won’t be just a code monkey in the back room.

This is a great place to work. I was the first employee five years ago. This is my fifth or sixth Austin startup since I moved back to Austin in 1992. It is by far the best. We have good benefits, great leadership, and a friendly team of strong professionals. I’ve never been anywhere that had better employee relations or less office politics than my present employer.

The requirements are pretty simple:

1) Professional experience writing LAMPhp software. Expect a detailed technical interview.

2) The right to work in the United States.

3) No Jerks need apply, because this is a fun place to work and we want to keep it that way!

Principals only please!

Nice to have but not required would be some C++ background so you could help on the client side from time to time. Macintosh experience would be really nice icing to have on your cake.

If you are interested or know someone who might be interested, please contact me.
