company

Are you an application developer who is savvy enough to deal with an
intensively customer service oriented digital agency? We are that company.
We consistently deliver for not only long lived and well-maintained
clients, but also our new projects. They range from Flash intensive brand
micro-sites with a major focus on user experience, to ordinary database
driven content management systems such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and
Typo3. We also work on unconventional projects with interesting and
occasionally not so interesting features thrown in the mix.
We will build anything that creates value and pass up those projects that
are too cumbersome, outrageous or simply unsustainable. On any given day
you could be part of a large team building a cutting edge web site or you
may be “solo” coding feature enhancements or fixes for a client’s online
forms. We thrive in a results oriented environment because our team is
treated well and our clients are treated even better.
What we need from you:
* Provable, quantifiable expertise as an application developer (code
samples and/ or project descriptions) Provable experience working
on web application projects (work history) Salary expectations.
What we don’t need from you:
* We don’t enjoy reading lists – especially not a list of the 50
technologies you know. If your resume doesn’t make it clear that you have
focus on a specific web technology(s) then you’re just wasting both of our
time sending us your CV – and nobody enjoys having their time wasted.
* If you are looking to ladder climb and want to play politics this is also
not the place for you. You are happy to work and are ready to address and
solve problems as they arise. We do not pretend to know everything and
mistakes are likely in every endeavor.
Where you will work:
We have a great office in one of Nairobi’s quieter suburbs near the city
centre with lots of windows and a very open set-up. We dress down most of
the time, but are always at our best in front of clients. We are
professional and the management team is very hands on and engaged with the
work that is done.
We try very hard not to require more hours that are required of anyone and
we strive to work 8.30 to 5.00 pm every day with a one hour lunch break.
That said, we’re flexible and recognize that we all have lives outside of
the office – and we also know that sometimes, especially when deadlines
demand it, normal working hours just won’t get the job done. When it
doesn’t, we act accordingly – and we show our appreciation when people
step-up. We use our leave days and so will you, for your sanity and ours.
If think that your that special talent we may be looking for, kindly send
us your CV on jobs@dotsavvyafrica.com by the 20th of December 2010
