<CENTER><H2>Senior Developer</H2></CENTER>

<H3>Job Description</H3>

The senior developer is a key member of our team and a vital cog in solution delivery engine. At Blue Fish, the senior developers are the top technical people in the company and are looked to by other team members for technical leadership, team leadership and mentoring. Senior developers own the technical success of key solution components and often lead development teams.


Our projects are typically staffed with two to four developers and last from two to six months. They require a high degree of self-motivation and a focus on delivering client satisfaction. Although a great technical solution is one of the best ways to satisfy a client, we believe that timeliness, responsiveness, and expectation management are just as important.


We don't often create products from scratch - we integrate best of breed off-the-shelf products with the client's legacy environment in a way that solves their business problem. The ability to quickly learn diverse new technologies is a must.


We are looking for that incredibly rare intersection of outstanding people skills, top technical expertise, and a willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done. At Blue Fish, we run a lean shop with as little overhead as possible, so candidates must be very self-directed and know when to ask for help. Capabilities and characteristics similar to those we are seeking may be found in other firms in the role of senior consultants, team leaders, and development managers.

  • Be a leader in the company and on your project teams.
  • Work with our chief architect to define a solution that achieves the technical and business objectives of the client.
  • Define the deliverable creation tasks and work with the project manager to flesh out a deliverable plan with an accurate estimate of time for each task within each deliverable.
  • Guide the project team to ensure they understand their deliverables and know the best practices for delivering them. Advise the team members on technical issues as they arise.
  • Be a mentor for developers.
  • Work closely with client technical team members to hand-off the solution and provide insight into the support and maintenance requirements for the solution.
  • Provide hands-on development of deliverables; often the most difficult development problems will fall to you.
  • Ensure that the solution is developed with high quality and that the team is leveraging the Blue Fish QA process.
