We are in the first stages of writing up our wish list for two experienced application developers for an interesting and permanent gig in medical software development, growth and maintenance.

Agile experience is necessary as the project dev has to be iterative. Team player a must as thats all we are here. Not a big software company so must also be able to self manage. Will get support from all sides. Additional staff could be hired if need identified.

There will be pressure and deadlines, but Farkette does some dev there and doesn't find the pressure unusually high. Just lots of expectations and a footprint of good earlier software to fill.

Thus, product specs are not in question as the customer is very certain in what they want and there is an existing product that can be modeled and improved.

Located in a beautiful area of the northeast US. Good competitive salary and benefits.

Must be auth to work in USA.

Drop email contact info in thread. Or email me at my total Fark email acct in my profile.

Still working out details on languages, etc., will be Windows, probably built with .Net and probably a server side app on a database.

Thanks DO NOT WANT Poster Girl for the job post!

While I've several friends looking for steady jobs, they aren't application developers. But, if I run into any who are looking for work, I'll point them this way.

Cheers,
Mike

I would apply, but you didn't say anything about being self motivated or organized, so I'm not sure it's the right fit for me.

Not sure if serious. :)

They're both Sr. Developer positions. No self motivation would be bad.

Hey, I am an experienced application diva.  A drag diva, yes, but I sing about all kinds of apps: Angry Birds, Twitter, Barcode Scanner, and so on.

Not my fault for the dot net. Don't blame the messenger. Might not be necessary but there's a MS environment in place, and the code and app needs to be pretty standardized to some kind of supported framework so as to be updated and modified over time. This will be a product, going to other clients once developed not an in-house only app. Therefore .Net makes some sense.

Company wants a product with lots of support and a Windows environment. Unfortunately that may mean .Net at this point.

Agile...  medical software?

Don't you have any sort of regulatory reviews to keep you from successfully changing course?

I have 15+ years of VB and now .net VB and C#. Add in HTML, CSS, ASP as well as Agile experience and the NJ thing is the only thing keeping me from sending you my resume. If they'd do remote access (VPN - what I have been doing for the past 4 years) I might be interested.

Dang it I'm looking for a job right now, but I could only do UK or Canada not US.  Also more in the infrastructure end of things and not so much in dev...

steveGswine: Agile...  medical software?

Nope. There are some regulatory elements but only in communication protocols and HIPAA considerations. Not public, used behind a firewall and password protected.

The original software (version 1) is a faithful but lumbering beast ...mostly good and bad because its simply a behemoth now...originally written in VB (don't cringe...it works and faithfully) and was added to over time. It works as it stands really well, used by thousands of people around the country. It's some of the best in this med field but it could be so much more and growing sales would be one of the goals for the new version.

But...it's hard to update and develop on further because the old developers are gone over many years of attrition and version 1 simply not worth trying to support. The customer is willing to take on permanent Sr. Developers as the new team and turn this software into a game changer. There simply is so much potential here.

The business rules established previously in version 1 are pretty mature and well defined and won't change, so the majority of the conceptual design is done already. The customer is very intelligent and was intimately involved with the previous development.

What is needed is a new modern version, redeveloped as a modular application that can allow for expansion and new or customized major features going forward.

There is a need and desire to develop the application modules under use testing by users in the field, and adapt some business rules if needed in V2. However, version 1 will be working while development is underway on version 2, so the dev team will have plenty of guidance.
Again, lots of potential for a good efficient group. Good salary, customer commitment and the opportunity to get into medical software development. Anyway, that's the story.

I think they want dev on site, as this is a permanent hire, won't know till next week. Send your email contact anyway, I'll let you know.

Having perpetrated quite a bit of VB back in the day, since back before HIPAA was an acronym, I'm not gonna judge.

I'm tempted to interrogate you about it, but you're not gonna pry me out of the Midwest, so I won't put you through it.  Best of luck!

Sounds like an interesting project. Currently involved in rewriting an inhouse ERP application that runs in HTA mode. Using c#, and razor/mvc 4.

Sent an e-mail. I'm experienced with the Agile dev process and have worked on a number of .Net apps and platforms, including SiteCore, Ektron, DoNetNuke*, and Visual Studio with TFS.

You may very well have nothing in your system that exposes you to regulatory requirements. The bolded part there sure isn't what would qualify it as such, though.   Those qualifications are irrelevant to most Parts of CFR Title 21 that would be regulatory predicates. Part 11 (electronic records and electronic signatures) is one overarching bit, and, as it explains, even closed systems require validationof systems to ensure accuracy, reliability, consistent intendedperformance, and the ability to discern invalid or altered records.

You're right. The validation of accuracy, performance and tools to test all of the above are in place in Version 1, and will be increased in V2, but what I was responding to up there is that agile dev methods will be ok in this context as our reg requirements are limited, not that we are not exposed to reg requirements in any sense.
