    Tired of the same old story? Is your boss holding you back from new projects? Perhaps you’re critical on a project where you’ve spent forever but your employer won’t let you move onto new projects because the client refuses to lose you?

    This one is for you.

    Our development manager has publicly stated a couple of pertinent points about growth in his team –

    “I want a place that all our developers can learn and grow, & be supported no matter what level they join us at, or how they want to shape their careers”

    “I view career growth as 2 distinct paths within my practice. You can decide between tech or leadership specialisations”

    “Developers should grow over time by expanding their areas of impact”

    “I also believe that leadership can come from everyone” “even some of our junior developer can be (& are) leaders”

    “The goal of this framework is for us to work on a growth path together” “provide a great way for us to measure where we are and where we are heading to”

    I don’t think you can ask much more than that from your Manager.

    He’s going to ask you for a couple of things:

    • You’ll need to have a firm grasp of C#, as well as some of the theory behind it – OOP, Patterns or things like DDD
    • You’ll find it easiest to adjust if you’ve worked browser – ASP.NET MVC or Web Api; a little JavaScript OR largish Restful service reliant software.
    • You will need at least basic T-SQL skills

    In reality, he’s happy to chat with any good developer who grasps those concepts & can work on that tooling already.

    What will you learn?

    • This is kind of a “how long is a piece of string” statement.
    • The environment is vast, they use everything from Xamarin to F# at some point in their lifecycle
    • You’ll definitely step up into .NET Core & ASP.NET Core
    • You’ll definitely learn some Azure
    • You will likely gain access to some of the funky SPA stuff in JavaScript
    • You’ll have a gap to throw some Xamarin into your repertoire.
    • You will learn how to code for Micro services architecture – Service Fabric, DDD, CQRS and Event sourcing type of concepts.
    • You’ll walk out of there one day with a strong mix of theory as well as practical dev skills.
    • You will find yourself gaining enterprise design as well as architect skills.
    • You will have opportunities to lead both people as well as concept.

    It’s a no brainer gig. If you live outside of the area, I can get you flexi hours, I can get you a great deal of flexibility to deal with commutes. If you live in the region, well you score daily.

    Money is what it is; he’s the type of chap who is prepared to throw big money at developers but he will want his pound of flesh. If you want big rates or big increases, he’ll expect you to bring some skills with you – I don’t think it get’s fairer than that personally.

    If this sort of attitude gets your attention, then pop me a mail, let’s set up a call. I’m comfortable giving you full disclosure once I know a little about you. jasonp@e-merge.co.za otherwise call in, I spend my life on the phone but if you speak to Nicole Burn on 011 463 3633, she will schedule a time for us to chat.

    Reference Number for this position is JP41685 which is a Perm position based in Centurion offering a salary up to R800k per annum negotiable on experience.
