TrackAbout Is Hiring!

It's been almost a year since I started at TrackAbout, and so far, it's been one of the best decisions I've made. I absolutely love working from home, and the team I work with is extremely talented. We're a small company, but looking to grow the team very soon. We're going to add a couple of developers, and we're specifically looking for an experienced developer with compact framework experience. We're doing a lot of work in that area, and getting someone with knowledge there would be hugely beneficial. We're also seeking a QA lead, but unlike the development positions (which are both work from home), this would be in Pittsburgh.

There isn't a job posting for these anywhere, and I think part of that is because we want to see what kind of people we can find on our own through our blogs or twitter. Last year, there was a job posting, but both of us that joined TrackAbout found out about the position through blog posts (well, technically, I found it on twitter, but it was a link to Joey's blog). I think we'll find better and more qualified candidates this way, so I'm excited to see who responds.

If you're interested, please let me know. I know a lot don't necessarily want it to be public knowledge that they may be interested in another job, so feel free to email me rather than comment (jross at rosscode dot com), or check out my contact page for more options. I'd be glad to have a chat via IM, Skype or phone.

For a bit more information, check out this guest post by my boss about how we communicate on a daily basis and some of the tools we use. Also, here's part of the blurb from the last job posting TrackAbout posted.

TrackAbout, Inc.

TrackAbout is a small, profitable and growing software company that provides Software as a Service (SaaS) asset tracking services through the combination of a hosted web platform and various mobile devices that run our custom software. We have a solid, international customer base, are experiencing high demand for our services and are looking at exciting times ahead. We are looking for an exceptional and experienced developer who is interested in playing a pivotal role in the growth of a small company. If you're truly passionate about technology, we want to talk to you.

TrackAbout's main office is just outside of Pittsburgh, PA.  However, our development staff is completely virtual (no office) and each developer works from home.

All members of our development team are dedicated to keeping up with the latest techniques, technologies and tools related to software development. We take time out to share our knowledge with one another and improve both our skills and our distributed development environment. We often experiment with and integrate new tools into our environment. We use ReSharper, CruiseControl.NET, TDD with NUnit, FXCop, NCover, Bugzilla, and Drupal to supplement our development efforts.
