at Brand-Yourself.com (Anywhere, Preferred Syracuse NY ) Freelance Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

Job Description:

Objective:

Expand Brand-Yourself’s development team to enhance user experience and refine our existing tools.

Brand-Yourself.com Overview:

Brand-Yourself.com is an online reputation management platform that enables individuals and business to manage and grow their reputation while leveraging the power of social media to build new meaningful connections.

We’ve been fortunate enough to be named by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the Top 5 Startups in the U.S., and have been covered in national publications and television including ABC, NBC, CBS, U.S. News & World Report, and Mashable.

Opportunity:

Working for Brand-Yourself is an opportunity for an experienced developer to challenge and expand their skill set, give input on product development and direction, work on an exciting and growing project with national recognition, collaborate with other experienced developers.

You will be working on a task-oriented project development with written specifications, specific deliverables and deadlines.

Requirements

* Expert level PHP skills (min. 4 years experience) including object oriented programming

* Experience working with a remote team (subversion, remote collaboration)

* Extensive experience working with CodeIgniter

* Storing and retrieving data with MySQL and Active Record

* Comfort with the MVC architecture

* JavaScript Fundamentals/jQuery

* Understanding of cross-browser and cross-platform compatibility

* Proficiency with standards-based HTML/CSS

* Familiarity with integrating popular APIs (parsing JSON, XML)

* Superior English communication skills (written and verbal)

We’re looking for a developer with an eye for design, and a flair for the polish that takes an application from good to great. You should write good code not because other people will see it, but because you take your work seriously. You shouldn’t feel bad about posting questions (or answers) on Stack Overflow. You should be confident enough to defend your ideas but not confrontational. You should also provide us with a picture of an orange from Google Image Search. We’re serious. If you send in a resume without a picture of an orange, it goes right in the trash. We just like to know you’re paying attention.

If you have managed high avaialblity applications with large development teams, please apply and outline specific details of the work.

Overall:

If you are contemplating the position and not sure what to do please consider the following: We are a young and dynamic company making waves in the industry. We are not just looking for someone that wants a “gig.” Do you take pride in building in writing extendable, stable, scalable code? Do you code because you want to not because you have to? You have come to the right place.

NO RECRUITERS OR COMPANIES MAY RESPOND! We want real applicants. We will let the world know via social media and blogging about companies and recruiters that respond without regard to our request and that can’t follow directions.

How to apply:

REAL APPLICANTS ONLY! Resumes & Cover Letters are nice, but we are more interested in work that you have done. Send your stuff to [email protected]. Please don’t waste my time with a generic email that do not touch on my points above.
