    HTML / CSS developer - Job Offer (we also need C#, .Net and SQL developers)

    First off, Mods: I'm never sure if we're allowed to post job applications? I've searched and found one or two, but if this isn't allowed let me know and I'll close it down.

    Anyhoo, My company's won too many contracts and we need to hire new people like crazy. Mostly Web developers of one sort or another. I ought to mention that I have a vested interest in you applying. Firstly, if I recommend someone who then gets hired, they'll pay me a handsome bonus / finders fee (after all, they'll save the cost of an employment agency). Secondly, if we can't hire enough good people I'm going to have to work 500 hour weeks from now until 2009 to get all the work finished, this does not make me a .

    Right the Jobs: We're after lots of people, but specifically: Front end Developers (HTML / CSS with a teeny bit of photoshop), Graduate Web Developers and experienced ASP.net developers (C#) And SQL Server Junior DBAs. For the graduate positions, it might sound odd, but you can apply even if you've never looked at .Net or C# in your life. They can train you on the job quite easily if you're proficient in C/C++, Java or similar. I did C++ at uni and they still hired me

    The company's in London (Holborn, Zone 1 quite near Tottenham Court Road), it's got about 35 people and I think it's a good fun place to work. They should offer you decent money too, they're desperate

    If you fancy applying for any of the following, either PM me, and I can put you through to the relevant people, and put in a good word, or you can see our website and contact them directly. http://www.snowvalley.com/careers/

    Here's the blurb they've sent round:
    User Interface Developer


    We are looking for a User Interface Developer with first class skills in turning attractive visual designs into robust, standards compliant HTML. You will work closely with the creative team and the back-end development team to create accessible, effective websites for our clients in E-commerce, finance, and professional services.

    You will be passionate about web design, and understand the interplay between content, look and feel, and interactivity. Your interests may include information architecture, usability, graphic design, or AJAX ; but your primary goal will be helping our customers achieve their business goals through a first class user experience.

    It is essential that you are able to code HTML and CSS to W3C standards, and that you have experience of working with transactional and/or database-driven websites. You also need to have a good understanding of Accessibility and the WCAG, and of Web Standards based work. It is desirable although not essential that you have an understanding of design basics and of standards based Javascript. Also desirable are usability and information architecture skills, experience with .Net and an awareness of Flash.

    ___________________________________________________________

    Graduate Web Developer


    Snow Valley is a Microsoft Gold Partner and our solutions are built using their latest technologies. Development work is on the .NET platform in C#.

    You will join one of the UK’s most experienced e-commerce teams, developing and supporting solutions for some of the UK’s biggest retailers including Toys 'R' Us, GAME, LK Bennett and Levi’s Europe. You will be responsible for building and enhancing systems that feature cutting-edge design, with complex transactions and extensive integration. You will also work on developing new web-based site management tools and applications.

    Ideally you will have some experience of Microsoft technologies, some knowledge of object orientated development and a good academic record. You might also have some experience in a customer-facing role, for example in IT help desk support.

    More important than any of this is a keen desire to be a great software developer and a passion for web-based applications. And in return we will invest time and money in your development and offer you a structured career path.

    ___________________________________________________________

    .NET Developers
    We are looking for ASP.net Developers to join our Project Team and work on developing a range of E-commerce sites.

    • Provide support to the Senior Developers or Team Leaders to ensure that the code produced is in line with the development roadmap agreed
    • Produce unit level test scripts to ensure the code produced meets the functional requirements
    You need basic knowledge of ASP.net, the .net framework, C# and SQL databases. It is also desirable although not essential that you have some knowledge of E-commerce systems, and Content Management Systems. You will receive plenty of training, both formally and on-the-job and can expect to develop rapidly in this role.

    Junior SQL Server Database Administrator


    Owing to our expanding business we are now on the look-out for a graduate calibre Junior SQL Server DBA, with a minimum of one year’s commercial experience.

    The successful candidate must have knowledge of SQL Server, development and T-SQL. Experience with Windows Server, and .Net technologies would be advantageous.

    Cronic shortage atm mate.

    Too many uni's are training not teaching. That way people "know" java, but have no idea how to learn new languages, and c# isn't very popular at unis (this is bloody stupid as its an ecma standard unlike java)

    You shouldn't let the fact it's web development put you off, for something like our systems, the web side really is the tip of the iceberg, and there is far more plain C# code under the covers. As an example we currently employ three peeps to design sites, two peeps to do html and css (and we need more) and 20 guys to write c# (and we need many more).

    Most of the language and libraries are common to ASP.Net and winforms stuff anyway.

    Almost makes we want to go back into WebDev full time...Almost....but not quite....Trouble is I'm too much of a manager now to go back into development full time, and my .Net is way below par...

    You up for splitting that finders fee if I can push a couple of people your way?

    I was unaware Hexus allowed people to advertise jobs here for free.
    Baring in mind paying a recuritment company to fill a position costs anything from £1000 to 10% of the first years salary.

    If only I was looking for a job..and it wasn't in London =)

    Good to know theres a chronic shortage of people like me tho Just graduated and i'm a c# + ASP.NET 2.0 developer..but self employed atm..if it all goes down the toilet and I need a job though I like the sound of a shortage Its true about unis not teaching it too - I learnt it myself over the last 2 years of my degree as I decided .NET was the future of windows programming really, and the rubbish the uni were trying to teach me (java ffs, and VB..VB! on a computing course!!) would have been useless to me.

    Good look finding people tho, i'll pass this on to a few of my friends who are looking for jobs at the moment.

    Wouldn't mind applying if it weren't for my final year coming up.

    And yes my Uni teaches us either Java or VB.Net. WHY?! So if I had a go at learning ASP.Net I'd be in a good position this time next year?

    Get C#. It is rapidly becoming the defacto standard, but more and more people are wanting WinForms.

    VB.Net isn't a bad thing to know, its just not going to open many doors (but will be useful in an 'also knows' way).

    WinForms vrs ASP.Net

    Again, learn both, master the one you find easyest.

    Yes, most unis really are there to make money, not produce rounded, educated often by result skilled grads.

    Oh well, more for the rest of us... until i get to management grade, then i'll rant

    TheAnimus - Do you know of any online resources I could use to help learn C#? Typical Uni student here with not much money.

    And what should I use to learn C#? Visual Studio? Or is there something better/easier to learn C# with?

    And sorry for taking this thread off topic.

    not really, you never know after 6 months ja might want to go work for them!

    Learning C#.

    Need visual studio really, but there is a free version called express, which is perfect for learning. It comes with some examples. And theres plenty of content on www.codeproject.com and the msdn.

    I didn't really sit down with a book, i had already done that for java/C++ so c# i just started making programs, learning what the names for all the useful classes are!
