The candidate should have excellent writing and communications skills, superior analytical skills, and a strong understanding of the software development process and testing methodology. The successful candidate should be adept with C#, XML, ASP, ASPX, VB.Net, .NET Framework, SQL. Additional experience with Darwin and MadDog would be a bonus.

A BA/BS degree in Computer Science or a related technical field is preferred.
Update: Ok folks…. not to be too blunt here, but… Emailing me directly, or posting comments, is not a good way to apply for this position. In the post above, I mention that this is the correct link… so any other method just shows me you didn’t bother to carefully read the post… and unless I’ve worked with you before (and had a good experience), I will not be forwarding your resume on just because you emailed it to me. Sorry for any confusion if that link wasn’t clear in the first posting…
