ColdFusion Muse

React + Typescript - have skills will pay ;)

Mark Kruger May 9, 2022 1:37 PM Job Openings Comments (0)

We are currently looking for someone with great react skills and good to great typescript skills. This is working on one of our teams for a fantastic fortune 500 customer. You will not regret this decision - be a part of the team that revolutionalizes a multi-million dollar product. Yes, we are paying a premium for this position.

Here's the skinny:
  • Yes it is a remote position.
  • You must be located in the US and legal to work here. I know this is tough for our many friends outside the US. This is a customer driven requirement. We would change it if we could.
  • Yes the position is W2 with benefits. If you prefer to work as a contractor that is cool and we can negotiate a rate, but this would be a full-time, 40 hours per week position. We are not looking to be one of many projects in your basket. We prefer to bless you with W2 plus benefits, but we get it.
  • Yes benefits include health care.
  • We do not provide healthcare for pets unless you have a live panda.
  • Yes there are other benefits - 401k, dental, PTOs, disability, life insurance, and a busy, vibrant culture that is irreverent while still being gentle.
  • Our work metrics are clear and meeting them is straightforward. You will know how to succeed here.
  • Part of the process here is interviewing with skilled resources. They will know if you fudged on your ReactJS or typescript skills, so come prepared to shine.
If you are interested the fastest way to engage us is to send a resume to jobs@cfwebtools.com. That's a list that goes to me and our management genies. We will respond quickly with information to get you moving.

QA engineer

You need to have experience with software testing. We are not looking for an engineer who has morphed into QA. We are looking for someone who has worked in systematic QA with Jira in an agile environment. Attention to detail, understanding of how to communicate with both devs and business stakeholders is a must. We are also paying a premium here. We want it to be worth your while. Yes, it is remote and yes you must be US-based. All the above stuff applies.


More about CFWT

We are not recruiters. We are not generalists either - we focus on high knowledge and compentence (and sometimes on spelling). Yes, you will work with and for customers but we care about developers and work culture. We try to find what makes you tick and we hope to provide a work environment where you can grow. We want you to want to come to work every day. We are looking for developers that match our culture of Can-do, Caring, Communication, and Competency.

Not Your Dad's ColdFusion Shop Anymore

Mark Kruger April 8, 2022 3:58 PM Job Openings Comments (0)

If you have been in the CF world for more than a minute you have heard of CF Webtools (CFWT). But (like CF itself) you may have some misconceptions.

Common Myths About CFWT

  • CFWT is at the low end of salary levels - nope again! we pay very competitive salaries and we are always evaluating so we can find good talent. We also have extensive incentive plans. We have to to keep up with the times. Folks who sign on with us often stay with us for years and years.
  • CFWT is a mom and pop shop - You might believe we are small and do things sort of hokey. Nope. In spite of my irreverent, aww-shucks approach to job postings, we are a legitimate powerhouse. We have 40 developers, a full-time ops department, sales, project management, and an office manager named Rachel who can stare daggers but is mostly nice and helpful.
  • CFWT handles mostly legacy code - Ugh! I hate hate hate this one. We do handle our share of legacy code and we are good at it. But we have more than a dozen large-scale applications we manage and develop that are cutting edge. We have customers in finance, pharma, LMS, and event planning - all of them actively engaged in updating, expanding, and improving with the latest tech.
  • CFWT is CF Only - no again. We have folks working in database work, project management, Reactjs, vuejs, and UI/UX. We love and serve the CF community but with 40 devs you can be we have a boatload of other tech in our pocket.
  • CFWT is the we-love-cf company - I am outraged that.. well... this one is actually true. But we do tons of other tech as well!
  • CFWT has a goofy owner - Well, yes that one is true. But in my defense, I had a happy childhood.

Come and See!!

So, if you've applied before or even worked here years ago and left because of my singing - please come back! Send us a resume. Let us know what you've been doing lately. We have great jobs, a healthy and positive culture (seriously we will lift you up), great compensation and benefits and an exciting growing team with new challenges and opportunities. We are not your father's Buick... er... dev shop! (Did anyone else hear that little bumpy theme song from that Buick commercial when I said that?).

Currently Looking

We are currently looking for all flavors of ColdFusion, ReactJS, VueJS, QA, project management, Oracle DBA and Business Analysts and if you own a food truck in Omaha NE we'll just make up something for you. Right now if you are a pure React or GoLang Dev we can probably use you if you are skilled. We always need CF folks of course.

Our work is Full Time W2 (or contract if you prefer it) with health, life, vision, dental, disability, vacation and 401k - plus stellar work-life balance. We are an all-remote company brimming with opportunity.

If you have some of that on your resume give me a shout. You can peruse some of my lengthier posts to see requirements and work place stuff. If you want to chat send a resume to jobs@cfwebtools.com (it goes to Kurt and I) and we'll get back to you. If you have applied in the past and we passed on you - give it another shot. Nobody stays the same - not you and not us. :)

Reactionary ColdFusion Programmers Needed

Mark Kruger February 23, 2022 5:20 PM Job Openings Comments (0)

If you know who we are then you know we try to be all things CF to all people. If you are advanced CF programmer for sure we want to talk to you! CF is awesome and we are the world's number one booster of the platform and language. But lately we are looking for more than just CF.

One thing in particular is coming up again and again - ReactJS. If you are a good CF programmer with more than an academic knowledge of React, we want you! We have multiple opportunities that are all weirdly satisfying projects. We are willing to find a way to "make it work" if you have React chops.

If you are JUST programming in React we may be able to use you as well. It is easily our most pressing need. Of course, we are always looking for other things too - UI/UX, CSS expertise, other JS libraries like Vuejs (also popular at the moment). We have a sales pipeline that is full to bursting and we will definitely be scrambling to hire. We are a GREAT place to work and (not to brag) but people love me! Well... my wife loves me - and 2 of my children. I'll take it!

Here's the skinny:
  • Yes you work from home but if you are a slob we encourage you to use a filter on video calls. Cats are popular.
  • You must be located in the US and legal to work here. This is something that often pains us but it is customer driven. We love our friends in Asia, Europe, and the sub-continent.
  • Yes the position is W2 with benefits after a short (30 day) trial period (sometimes negotiable - I'm looking at you React people). You do have the option to remain a contractor if that is your jam, but it is not our preference.
  • Yes benefits include health care.
  • No our health care won't cover your terrarium, but you should really find out what is living in there.
  • Yes there are other benefits - 401k, dental, PTOs, disability, life insurance, and busy, vibrant culture that is irreverent while still being gentle.
  • Our work metrics are clear and meeting them is straightforward. You will always know where you stand.
  • We are customer-driven and we usually work within the SDLC frameworks provided by our customers. We have a lot of influence though - and you will have the opportunity to move code and applications in a positive direction.
  • Yes you will have to take a coding test. The test involves logging into a VM and coding through a few simple tasks. Everything is part of the test. We are watching - including the part where you say "what is a VPN?". The focus is patterns of behavior and general problem solving and knowledge. It is also timed. We need folks who know the sweet spot between pristine code and slapdash.
If you are interested the fastest way to engage us is to send a resume to jobs@cfwebtools.com. That's a list that goes to me and our management genies. We will respond quickly with information to get you moving.

We are not recruiters. We are not generalists either - we focus on the CF stack and try to know "all things ColdFusion". Yes, you will work with and for customers but we care about developers and work culture. We try to find what makes you tick and we hope to provide a work environment where you can grow. We want you to want to come to work every day. We are looking for developers that match our culture of Can-do, Caring, Communication, and Competency. Here are some items that you need in order to fit in here.

  • You should be able to setup multiple local environments on your own with a minimum of assistance. Probably this means words like "Apache" or "IIS" shouldn't scare you too much. Yes you will be exposed to ______ (windows/mac) even if you are religiously devoted to ________ (windows/mac). We don't make the rules.
  • You should not be prone to getting bogged down during set up or ramp up. We need folks who can get up to speed reasonably fast. We have been at this a long time so our expectations are tempered, but we know bogged down when we see it. ;)
  • Communication is key. We like folks who can write well and know how to show empathy and collaborate with others. Most of our customers use some form of agile, so being on time to stand ups and prepared to respond is key. You will also be required to record (log) your hours on a daily basis. We make it easy but a surprising number of developers struggle with this task.
  • You should be able to work with SVN or GIT and sometimes other source control products.
  • You should Maintain positive attitude - We interact with respect and gentle humor. Snark is minimized and encouragement is the order of the day. If you are quirky and self deprecating that will be a plus and you will love it here.
  • You should 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. Everyone of these is a growth opportunity. If that has you licking your chops climb aboard.
  • We like Balanced Developers - Our devs have a full life. They ride horses, snowshoe, skydive, sword fight, play instruments, love dogs, golf, learn languages, rear children, go to plays, like to bake, fish, hunting, equestrian sports, skydiving, guitar playing, dog training, macramé, Golf, racquetball, Mandarin, Politics (careful!), family outings, child rearing, school plays, choirs, baking, snowshoeing, ice fishing, hunting, aquaponics, mudding, and the list goes on. We love it all! We think those things make you a better developer and it makes us want to be around you. We aren't looking for 80 hour a week developers slavishly devoted to coding. We are looking for eclectic, interesting people who enjoy coding and want to do it for a living.
Hopefully this helps explain how we operate enough to pique your interest. If you want to take a shot send your resume to jobs@cfwebtools.com or call (402) 408-3733 ext 105 and ask for the Muse. We look forward to hearing from you!

VueJS developer needed

Mark Kruger October 7, 2021 11:42 AM Job Openings Comments (0)

We are looking for a VueJS developer. This dev will be doing UI on one of our most active and dynamic customers. There is a Lot of activity and excitment. This is a full time remote position with good salary and benefits for a US Based developer - with the Muse's apology to my many friends accross the water. Here's some of the skills you will need:

  • VueJS version 2
  • Vuex
  • Vue component usage and creation
  • ES6 style coding
  • Inline page coding - no webpack/node setups currently
If you have all or most of those items I really want to talk to you. And that's actually pretty cool because I'm hard to get ahold of.

Other Stuff

You'll need some familiarity with JQuery and plugins as well as Bootstrap and plugins. As far as the backend stuff, it is not as crucial for this postition as the front end but here's what I have to work with.

  • Command Box running Lucee 5.3 - that's a ColdFusion framework on an open source CFML platform
  • MSSQL
  • MVC architecture - beans and services
  • Handlers set up up for VueJS interaction in most cases deliving JSON back to Vue
If this list is unfamiliar but doesn't scare you I still want to talk!

Contacting the Muse

CSS Guru Needed

Mark Kruger October 6, 2021 12:47 PM Job Openings Comments (0)

First - Yes, we are still looking for CF help so keep sending those resumes. We've added 5 or 6 devs in the last month or so but we have more to fill.

Meanwhile

We have a need for a genuine design expert to help with a large e-commerce site. This will be full-time remote work for the foreseeable future. Good salary and benefits and a great team. You will also be the seed for a new group here at CFWT - a design/UI group. Here's what you need:

  • Strong CSS Skills - we don't a dabbler or a "just get by dev" (like the muse :) - we need a true CSS expert. You should be a 5 on a scale of 1 to 5.
  • CSS framework experience - Knowing bootstrap or Foundation or one of the other frameworks will be a plus.
  • ColdFusion - it is a ColdFusion site and we'll be integrating CF templates, so knowledge of CF will be needed. You don't need to be an expert - we have tons of those - but you will need to look at CF Templates and know what's there without fainting.
  • Team-Communication Skills - this is always needed but especially here. You will be retooling and maintaining a large, active site with other team members doing other important things as well. You'll need to coordinate and help while you move the design forward.
  • More of the Skinny

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

    • You can't be religious about this framework or that tech. We do what we need to do to meet customer needs - not our own nice-to-have opinions
    • 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 way 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 a margin for YOU to enjoy life and family.

    Contacting the Muse

    If you want to take a shot send your resume to jobs@cfwebtools.com 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.

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 jobs@cfwebtools.com 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!

Jobs Galore Come One and All

Mark Kruger April 13, 2021 1:12 PM Job Openings Comments (1)

We are looking for 3 possibly 4 folks to hire at the moment. All of our positions are remote work but you must reside in the U.S. with the right to work in the U.S. Read to the end - I'll try to keep you entertained. It will help if you think I look vaguely like Russel Crowe... I mean in Gladiator... not... not Russel Crowe now. But I digress.

What is a CFWT Guru?

As you know, CF Webtools knows all things ColdFusion - so if you are an enthusiast as well as a good CF programmer, we may be the place for you. But we are also hiring for sys-ops, Golang, ReactJS, and even C#/.NET - so there's plenty of opportunities right now. For you to thrive in our culture, here are a few things you should be able to do:

  • You should be able to set up and maintain multiple local environments on your own with a minimum of assistance. This means if you are someone who has a "it-must-be-done-this-way" idea of programming (no judgment) we may be the wrong spot for you. ;)
  • You should be able to work with SVN or GIT (and we probably don't need your apologetic discourse on why GIT is better). We love GIT as well, let's move on.
  • You should be able to maintain a positive attitude - we interact with respect and gentle humor. 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.
If this seems like a fit for you then read on brave adventurer.


Job 1 - ReactJS and/or Go

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.


Job 2 - CF + Node/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:

  • PostGresSQL - this is more than "Oh it's a lot like MySQL" - that'll get you a mild eye roll from the muse. You should have experience with the platform.
  • Docker - deploying and using containers and an understanding of how to deploy and develop.
  • Node/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.


Job 3 - the Fireman

FYI we are almost always looking for this person. You should be a genuine CF expert and a 5 star problem solver who loves to dig in and fix things, save customers from disaster, and enjoy the plaudits and wonderment of your peers as you save their bacon on a daily or at least monthly basis. Ok I'm probably overselling it, but we do need that ColdFusion Jack-of-all-trades. If you like to have your fingers in multiple projects and you like engaging with several teams on different levels then this may suit you. Some more info:

  • Confident switching enviornments - CF versions, platforms, frameworks, JS libraries, DB platforms etc. You know you can figure it out.
  • Front end expertise - you can take a design template and implement it - maybe even fiddle with a PSD file. Bootstrap and jquery are in there too - the ubiquitous front end tech we see everywhere.
  • Strong CSS skills would be so so helpful here - you are the answer to the question, "can anyone fix my dynamic width problem?"
  • Expertise with any or all of:
    • Mura
    • Coldbox
    • Commandbox
    • Fw/1
    • Commonspot
    • extJS (modern)
    • DBs other than MSSQL - MySQL, Oracle, PostGresSQL etc.
We have lots of clients with ever-changing needs, and this position will bring constant new clients and constant new challenges (and an opportunity add new technologies to your tool belt!), as well as high interaction with the CFWT team.

One more note on the job 3 post. CFWT has been lacking in this area since we lost CF giant, Wil Genovese. He passed away last December and we miss him dearly. If you feel like you have his abilities and (especially) if you like to write blog posts, help the community, and rise to the level of CF Guru (if you are not already there - looking at you Charlie), I would entertain a special position on our staff. I've been searching for this person for some time. Maybe it is you!


MVC Razor

We have an opportunity to take on a long-term partnership with a new product that uses MVC razor in the stack. While CFWT checks a lot of boxes already, this is one we still have to find. It's .NET using C#. This is for a well-funded version 1.0 product with great prospects that already has a user base. We expect it to fly quickly. So you could be a key player in a new leg of business for CFWT. If you have .NET C# experience give me a shout - even if it's ancillary to your core skill set. We can perhaps find a way to make it work.


Contacting the Muse

If you want to take a shot send your resume to jobs@cfwebtools.com or call (402) 408-3733 ext 105 and ask for the Muse. If my exec assistant Rachel gives you a blank look (or sound) don't worry, she calls me Mark around the office so she may not know what you mean. Meanwhile, I look forward to hearing from you!

Yes We are Looking!

Mark Kruger June 3, 2020 3:40 PM Job Openings Comments (0)

CFWT is growing again. We are looking for one, possibly two senior ColdFusion developers to join our staff. Our group is close-knit, dynamic and knowledgable. Here are a few things you should know.

  • Yes you work from home and we will not ask if you are wearing a mask.
  • You must be located in the US and legal to work here. (No agencies or overseas - sorry)
  • Yes the position is W2 with benefits after a short (30 day) trial period.
  • Yes benefits include health care.
  • No our health care won't cover your hello fresh diet, but it's still pretty good.
  • Yes there are other benefits - 401k, dental, PTOs, disability, life insurance, and a water cooler chat that keeps humming with each new edition.
  • We work with our customers to meet their needs. We do not dictate the environment or the strategy. We are at their disposal (meaning we serve them - not that we stand at the kitchen sink).
  • Yes you will have to take a coding test. The test involves logging into a VM and coding through a few simple tasks. It should take you about an hour. We look at everything you do and there are no right answers. The focus is patterns of behavior and general problem solving and knowledge.
If you are still interested. Here is the sort of developer we are looking for.


Senior ColdFusion developer

This position is on a high quality team maintaining, upgrading and enhancing a broad suite of complex applications. Responsiveness, communication, security mindedness and teamwork are key elements of the ideal candidate.

  • Mac User (especially for development). If you know Vagrant that's a plus.
  • reactJS.
  • Framework experience (especially FW/1)
  • Lucee experience.
  • High DB Skills in MSSQL or MySQL including optimization, design and indexing.
  • Familiarity with SCRUM, Git, Agile and Jira as primary elements of SDLC
Folks on this team usually love it. It's engaging and interesting and contains some giant brains who are eager to share.


More about CFWT

We are not recruiters. We are not generalists either - we focus on the CF stack and try to know "all things ColdFusion". Yes you will work with and for customers but we care about developers and work culture. We try to find what makes you tick and we hope to provide a work environment where you can grow. We want you to want to come to work every day. We are looking for developers that match our culture of Can-do, Caring, Communication and Competency. Here's some items that you need in order to fit in here.

  • You should be able to setup multiple local environments on your own with a minimum of assistance. Probably this means words like "Apache" or "IIS" shouldn't scare you too much. Yes you will be exposed to ______ (windows/mac) even if you are religiously devoted to ________ (windows/mac). We don't make the rules.
  • Communication is key. We like folks who can write well and know how to show empathy and collaborate with others. Most of our customers use some form of agile, so being on time to stand ups and prepared to respond is key. You will also be required to record (log) your hours on a daily basis. We make it easy but a surprising number of developers struggle with this task.
  • You should be able to work with SVN or GIT and sometimes other source control products.
  • You should Maintain positive attitude - We interact with respect and gentle humor. Snark is minimized and encouragement is the order of the day. If you are quirky and self deprecating that will be a plus and you will love it here.
  • You should 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. Everyone of these is a growth opportunity. If that has you licking your chops climb aboard.
  • We like Balanced Developers - Our devs have a full life. They ride horses, snowshoe, skydive, sword fight, play instruments, love dogs, golf, learn languages, rear children, go to plays, like to bake, fish, hunting, equestrian sports, skydiving, guitar playing, dog training, macramé, Golf, racquetball, Mandarin, Politics (careful!), family outings, child rearing, school plays, choirs, baking, snowshoeing, ice fishing, hunting, aquaponics, mudding, and the list goes on. We love it all! We think those things make you a better developer and it makes us want to be around you. We aren't looking for 80 hour a week developers slavishly devoted to coding. We are looking for eclectic, interesting people who enjoy coding and want to do it for a living.
Hopefully this helps explain how we operate enough to pique your interest. If you want to take a shot send your resume to jobs@cfwebtools.com or call (402) 408-3733 ext 105 and ask for the Muse. We look forward to hearing from you!
