Up front, you enjoy programming, are techie by nature, and a good code challenge makes your blood flow. You probably code in your spare time and follow your own technical interests online such as SEO, hardware, server security or the like.
You can follow detailed mockups or application wireframes but can also creatively solve ambiguous web problems, coming up with your own solutions. You keep up to date on the latest web tools, apps, and innovations. You may own a nerdy t-shirt or at one time have had a lava lamp.
You understand the merits of and have experience with both object-oriented and functional programming. You've used and understand MVC architecture and have experience with at least one well-known CFML MVC framework (e.g. CFWheels, Model-Glue, Framework One, or Fusebox). You could build a REST API from the ground up and you're experienced in reading API documentation and implementing existing ones.
You have experience with enterprise level websites and you create scalable solutions with performance clearly in mind. Large websites and long projects don't scare you. You are not afraid to ask for help or to think of new, inventive problem-solving methods. You can friendly challenge a suggested solution, but can also carry out instructions you may not have chosen yourself, and do so with a good attitude. You strike a fine balance between productivity and building applications with maintenance and future scalability in mind.
You are a positive person. Blaming, complaining, or making excuses are not common habits, which is why your closest friends are also positive people and they enjoy being around you. You are self-aware and interested in self-improvement, your habits, your attitude, and your relationships. You're a self-managed team player and like working together with passionate people towards a common goal.
If this sounds just like you, you may be interested in the following employment opportunity:
