Catch Software, where I lead development on Enterprise Tester (among other products) are expanding the development team.

We are looking to add a full-time (Salary) software developer to work on product development.

If you are:

  • Pragmatic.
  • Passionate.
  • Based in Auckland, New Zealand.
  • Care about your craft.

And have a keen interest in:

  • Shipping! Often!
  • Directly influencing the design inside and out of software being delivered.
  • Building extensible software.

Then we want to talk to you.

Enterprise Tester is a web application primarily written in C# and JavaScript (and a bit of F#), so those skills will be essential for you to fit well into the roll. The codebase is very JavaScript heavy so candidates with exceptional JavaScript development skills, with less experience in C# (or just a waning interest) would also be a great fit.

Beyond that the ideal addition to our team will need to be somebody who:

  • Has a sense of humour.
  • Proven track record.
  • Does not drink too deeply of the Microsoft cool-aid.
  • Interested in the challenges of building a platform (API’s, plugins, server-side and client-side extension points etc.)
  • Enjoys constantly learning.
  • Has great spoken and written communication skills.

We are a close-knit group at Catch Software, and have a great team – so we are going to be a little picky about who we add to it, be fore-warned – but to counter this, for the developer we decide to add to the team, this is also a well remunerated position acknowledging the skills you can bring to our team ($150K+).

P.S. If I talked to you about working at catch software over the last year, and you’re looking for a change of scene in 2013, Drop me a line and we can catch up for a coffee/talk.

    Hahaha you almost lost me at “Does not drink …” before I went ahead completing the sentence :)

    With all seriousnes, looks like a terrific opportunity. But I already moved my family cross-continent a year ago. Will try to circle this to my (not too many) kiwi acquaintances

    Yeah, making a cross-continent move is a big deal, you don’t want to put your family through that too many times!

    Be great if you can let your kiwi dev acquaintances know…it’s been proving difficult to find someone!
