Looking for a C# Web Developer to join Questionmark in Edmonton

questionmarkI’ve had luck with job postings for Questionmark in the past, so I wanted to mention that we’re looking for a web developer to join our team:

We are looking for a talented senior C# developer to join our development team in designing and creating the next generation of on-line assessment delivery software. The senior C# developer will work closely with a Product Owner and other team members (C# developers and QA) in a SCRUM (Agile) environment. They will be responsible for delivering potentially shippable functionality each Sprint using the latest technologies (ASP.NET MVC, WCF, .NET 4.0, etc.).

If you have experience building web applications using core web technologies (HTML, JavaScript, and CSS) then you might be interested in this opportunity. That said, we use ASP.NET MVC and jQuery quite extensively so experience with those is essential. The other tiers of the product utilize .NET 4, WCF, Entity Framework, and SQL Server, so experience working with any or all of those technologies is preferred. The project you would be working on is a very important one for the company, with lots of opportunity to both flex your technical muscles and to have a big impact in the marketplace!

Our development teams are cross-functional and work in two week iterations. We use Visual Studio Team System 2010 to manage source code and other artifacts, and Visual Studio Lab Management to facilitate automated testing and deployment.

Our Edmonton office is located downtown in the Empire Building on Jasper Avenue at 101 Street, right above Central LRT Station.

Looking for an HTML5 developer to join Questionmark in Edmonton

Back in April I posted that Questionmark was looking for a Junior Technical Writer here in Edmonton, and I’m happy to report that my blog post led to a successful hire! I figure it can’t hurt then, to mention that we’re looking for a web developer to join our growing team:

We are looking for a talented mobile applications developer to join our development team in designing and creating the next generation of online assessment delivery software.​ The successful candidate will work closely with a Product Owner and other team members (developers and QA) in a SCRUM (Agile) environment.​ They will be responsible for delivering potentially shippable functionality each Sprint using HTML5 and other mobile technologies targeting the most popular mobile platforms (iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone).​

We’re looking for a web developer with experience creating applications using core web technologies (HTML, JavaScript, and CSS). The ideal candidate would also have experience with our core technology stack – ASP.NET MVC, C#, WCF, and SQL Server. There’ll be a focus on mobile development initially, but of course HTML5 is not limited to smartphones so there’s lots of opportunity to have a wider impact!

Looking for a Junior Technical Writer to join Questionmark in Edmonton

As a software developer, I generally don’t have much love for writing documentation. I’d rather be writing code! But as someone who tries to write every day (here and elsewhere), I know that clearly explaining something is not easy, so I have great respect for those who do it. My experience in software development has taught me a few things. One is that documentation, if done correctly, can actually be seen as a feature. Another is that technical writers are one of the best sources of knowledge about a piece of software – they have, after all, documented it every step of the way. And a third lesson is that no matter how easy and straightforward you try to make a piece of software, someone, somewhere, will always want to have documentation.

Today, technical writers do more than just write documentation of course. Yes they write help files, knowledge base articles, and that sort of thing, but they also produce screencasts and videos, track and analyze usage metrics, and help to define how technical information is best relayed to the user. If that sounds like the perfect role for you, send me a resumeQuestionmark is looking for a junior technical writer here in Edmonton.

The successful candidate will be self-motivated and self-sufficient with a flexible and questioning approach. You will have the interpersonal skills to succeed in a team environment. You should have strong written communication skills and a thirst for knowledge with a desire to learn and improve your experience of technical writing in a product environment.

We’re looking for someone with some experience and a desire to learn on the job by creating great resources for our customers. Our product development teams use SCRUM and work in two-week iterations, so there’s always a new challenge to tackle.
