Interactive Sites is hiring!

posted under category: General on September 15, 2006 at 1:00 am by MrNate

Interactive Sites, my employer, is hiring ColdFusion developers. We have at least a couple positions open, possibly more. We have a lot of exciting new projects coming up and are quickly finding ourselves in need of more CF programmers. If you live in the Phoenix area, or anywhere in the US, and want to check out what we have to offer, drop your resume into the form here:

As a quick summary of what it's like working here over the past year, I can say what's cool. Snacks and beverages are provided (anything you want), it's a very casual environment and you can wear what you like. We typically have music playing in the main area, monthly birthday parties, Christmas decoration competitions. The engineering dept goes to lunch together most days (for those that want to eat out, so it's not everybody most of the time), and that really builds friendships and teamwork. We have intellectual conversations about practically anything, my favorites are subjects like the USB RAID array, making millions of dollars with simple web apps, finding new ways to automate everything and replacing our former employees with shell scripts.

If you like the programming scene, love playing with CF, making web sites, and coming up with new ways to solve new problems, send us your resume!

If you write CF in a dull environment and are bored or underpaid, you owe it to yourself to see what it's like here.

If you live in Alaska (like I did), or anywhere cold, wet or humid, you should really think about this opening.

PS, Here's the official opening.

This is a pretty cool company to work for. When I first moved to phoenix I applied with them. Took them a little time to get back to me, and at that point I was already employed. But what I saw from thier office, and some of thier work they seemed like a cool company to work for. I suggest people check them out.

PS. You guys using flex over there yet?

Jeremy,

Thanks for the kind words. Yes, they do tend to take a while to get through the hiring process sorry it was a litte too late for you.

At the moment, concerning Flex, we're still looking for projects to use Flex on - plus we don't have anyone trained. You know how it goes with smaller companies, hiring an employee with new talents means you instantly have new things to offer your customers. Flex experience is a definite plus on any engineering department opening.

I am by no means a pro at flex yet. But I have been using it since late 1.5 and since the earliest stages of flex 2 alpha.

I posted a tutorial of it up at easycfm. It is a good starter for those looking to jump into flex.

You can find the tutorial here.
