1. Wanted: part-time web app dev'er

Company description

Strangecode is an internet consulting group based in Northern California with a focus on website software development, managed web hosting, and system administration. Since 2000 we have provided consulting and web programming services to small businesses in Chico and around the world. Our boutique web hosting service provide customized environments to more than 300 websites.

We are a small team; the company founders, Quinn Comendant and Beau Smith, have been the primary project managers, with a handful (2-6) of part-time programmers, designers, and system administrators contracted on a per-project basis. Our team splits their time working on 1/3 new client projects, 1/3 support and maintenance for existing clients, and 1/3 internal projects and hosting infrastructure support.

We are looking for an application developer who wants to become a part-time – but long-term – member of our small, happy team.

Job description

Immediate opening for a part-time (10-40 hours/week, variable) advanced web applications programmer/developer. You must have extensive experience building and maintaining LAMP-based website applications in a professional production environment. You will be expected to discuss projects with clients, and then plan, document, develop, test, and deploy solutions for projects as small as a minor feature upgrade on an existing site to building a full-scale web-based application from the ground up. You may be working with Strangecode team members at every stage, or may be consigned to focus on one specific aspect of development, or may be responsible for seeing an entire project through on your own. The role, scope, and scale of this job depends on the project, as determined by your Strangecode manager. An example project is the maintenance of a large customer and order management database application, taking feature requests from the client, designing and implementing solutions, getting client feedback, and being available for future client requests. Ideal candidate is located in Chico or San Francisco and is seeking to earn a modest living part-time while working from cafes.
