Here are just some of the reasons why developers enjoy working at our company:

  • Our primary focus is software development and technology. As a developer, you won't be looked at as a "necessary evil" which unfortunately is how IT is looked at in many organizations.

  • We have many experienced developers on our staff that you will undoubtedly learn from as you work together with them to build exciting new applications.
  • We have hundreds of active projects and are launching a new web site nearly every day. Developers here enjoy seeing their projects get launched to the public and seeing how their work leads to our customers' success.
  • By working on such high-profile applications, it gives our developers the opportunity to stretch their horizons and learn about things like database partitioning; caching; web farms; working with huge volumes of data; workflow; specialized ecommerce techniques; payment gateways; integration with various external software like ERP systems; AJAX; JSON; advanced programming models based on design patterns; plug-in architecture, etc.
  • Our developers enjoy working on the latest versions of development software on fast workstations with dual flat-screen monitors.

Our portfolio includes interesting projects such as:

  • CTA TrainTracker
  • High-revenue ecommerce sites for customers such as Beretta, DaySpring (Hallmark cards), MARS, WeatherTech and many more
  • Built a content management system for USTA which allows them to manage and syndicate content to hundreds of sub-sites through one central location
  • Optimized our idev search platform to where it can search millions of records in milliseconds

  • Preferably a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science
  • 2+ years experience with WordPress
  • Someone with a passion for programming and technology and who is always looking to learn more and improve.
