My new company - Zorg Solutions Ltd is now looking for at least one software developer to fill out a team, preferably you'll be an enthusiastic multi-skilled person but we're flexible and will distribute work based on what you can do.

Do you have a background as a C# software developer that has done either Winforms or ASP.NET in the past?  You will need to have at least a couple of years of experience developing with the .NET framework but I will be willing to take hobby or open source work as experience if it's provable that you did it.  This could be a great opportunity to jump into the software development world for someone - there's no requirement for a degree or other certification.  Any experience of Windows Azure, Silverlight or WPF would be an advantage.

Or do you have any experience (hobby or professionally) in electronics, firmware, C/C++?  We have contracts for some hardware development and the opportunity to work with and program the hardware we'll build - probably Atmel microprocessors or PIC microcontrollers, but even some Linux on ARM9 based chips.

If you answered yes to either of these questions and would be willing to commute to Basingstoke then I am interested in hearing from you!  Any experience of the following would make you stand out but is not essential:-

  • SQL experience (preferably SQL server's T-SQL dialect)
  • Windows Workflow Foundation
  • Biztalk
  • Silverlight
  • Mono

Salary will be negotiable (but as an idea we would be willing to pay either side of £35k) and based on experience.  Working hours and benefits will be fully negotiable - we can be very flexible and understand if you have personal commitments.  Training and an MSDN subscription will also be provided!

If you apply (just send me your CV) or contact me now to discuss in more detail then you will be ahead of the conventional advertisements for these roles - we'll be putting them out conditional on responses to this posting and a few other enquiries - so you have nothing to lose!  No recruiters yet please!
