Tuscany Hiring

We're out of the initial handwavy portion of Tuscany planning and, thanks in large part to the comments of the folks on this blog, we're into the next phase: prototyping. And that means hiring -- developers and program managers are needed.

  • Software Development Engineer. I'm looking for a candidate with a BS or MS, and at least 5 years of commercial software programming in C or C++. The candidate needs a working knowledge of C# and ASP.NET and preferably of the VSIP interfaces. You will also need strong communication skills and the ability to effectively manage cross-group relationships. There‚Äôs lots of room for growth in this startup team, so get on board early.
  • Program Manager. I'm looking for a candidate with a BS or MS with 4+ years experience as a program manager. You'd need experience gathering business requirements and turning them into detailed functional design specifications, excellent oral/written communication skills. (for both internal and end user), a high degree of competency with project management including: issue and risk identification and management, tracking dependencies and milestones, and communication of overall project status, a proven ability to work cross functionally to drive the implementation of new features, and familiarity with web-based product development including some but not all of the following technologies: ASP.NET, Visual Studio Integration, Web services.
