ColdFusion Muse

Job Openings: Looking for Help on the CF Tsunami

Mark Kruger July 27, 2021 5:05 PM Job Openings Comments (0)

It's been a busy month here at CF Webtools. We have an abundance of opportunities and we are currently hiring at least 4 or 5 folks right now. If ColdFusion is a core skill for you we are probably interested regardless of what else you bring to the table. Here's is just one of the projects we are working to fill.

Coldbox Conversion

Take an existing legacy site running Fusebox 5.5 and migrate it to ColdBox. Along with the migration you will need to build a data mapping and migration tool allowing the customer to move customers in a granular fashion from one schema to another. All this to enable seemless operation for the customer as they upgrade. So this task will need ColdFusion (of course) Coldbox (natch) and at least a passing familiarity with the later version of Fusebox - or enough confidence to be able to unpack it. You'll also need some UI skills and some MSSQL server skills. Speaking for myself I used to dig this exact sort of thing. If it sounds like your jam send a resume.

Don't let that stop you

Hey if coldbox isn't your deal but you are still a core developer in ColdFusion send your resume anyway! We have a wheelbarrow full of opportunities here and we are ready to hire - good pay, good benefits, incentive programs, fun atmosphere, good work life balance and a company who cares about developers. You could find a home here!

More of the Skinny

There's some stuff we need you to be able to do in order to be hired.

  • Must be able to set up and maintain your own dev environment including stuff like apache or IIS. In many cases you have to set up more than one environment.
  • Must be able to set aside your tech dogma and do things as required sometimes. If you are a "only this way is the right way" developer, we may be a bad fit for you. We work with dozens of clients who have succeeded using all sorts of approaches. Our eyes are open.
  • You should be able to work with SVN or GIT and possibly a few other source control products. Yes we are aware that one of these things may not be like the others. Thank you Grover.
  • You should have a gentle sense of humor that blesses and encourages people. We interact with respect and good natured ribbing, but we don't cross the line - indeed we try to stay a good ways back from it. We love and encourage each other. We are striving for an inclusive and caring culture.
  • You should routinely maintain and enhance your skills set - you will be given the opportunity to work on lots of code, different versions, platforms, integrations, libraries, and SDLC organization and procedure. Every one of these is a growth opportunity. If that just made you say "ooh!!" then we are a good fit.
  • You should either have or be seeking balance - We like devs who have a full life. If you enjoy fencing, equestrian sports, skydiving, guitar playing, dog training, macrame, Golf, racquetball, Mandarin, Politics (careful!), family outings, child-rearing, school plays, choirs, baking (all activities enjoyed by folks on our team) then we think those things make you a better developer! We are not looking for folks who can't put down their laptop and smell the roses. It's not about our profit margin, it's about creating margin for YOU to enjoy life and family.

Contacting the Muse

If you want to take a shot send your resume to or call (402) 408-3733 ext 105 and ask for the Muse or ask Rachel (who will probably answer) how to apply. She'll fill you in.

Meanwhile, here are specifics on some other jobs we are trying to fill.

ReactJS and Golang

We have a high-quality 4 person team working on a great product. React and Go are a part of the product stack and we are looking to add some additional devs to that team focusing on react/go. If you have both of those - your hired! Wait... I'm being told by my exec team I can't say that. We have to interview you first. Still, it will be a real plus if you have both. But even if you only have one of those languages in your toolkit, give me a shout and we'll chat about it. Some additional info:

  • ReactJS 16.8 - experience using React hooks would be a major plus.
  • Main dev environment should be a MAC or Linux
  • Docker expertise (for Golang especially).
  • Experience writing Golang LAMDA would be a plus as well if you are a Go person. (a Go-gert? Go-pher?)
  • Scrum team with GIT, QA, functional specs and the whole nine yards, so the ability to work in sprints on a team is important. We always look for high communicators. We'll even take oversharers.
Folks on this team really love it. It's engaging and interesting and contains ginormous brains who love to share and noodle together.

CF + VueJS

We have a fantastic opportunity for someone who is an advanced ColdFusion developer (proficient and knowledgeable - we'll test you), and is also expert in:

  • Docker - deploying and using containers and an understanding of how to deploy and develop.
  • VueJS
  • The usual ColdFusion things - writing secure code for the DB, sanitizing user inputs, familiarity with frameworks, scoping, and code organization etc.
Some AWS knowledge will be helpful as well, but we have a full-time AWS team so don't sweat that one too much.

But wait there's more

There are several other opportunities we are working to fill. We are at a point where many companies want us to step in and do our magic. All we lack at this point is some additional folks who love ColdFusion and are ready to go. Join us!
