… is unlikely. But we’re working hard on it. That’s why we’re looking for a Web Application Developer who helps us build the sexiest translation workflow tool in the world. One that will scare the bejesus out of XTM, Wordbee and MyGengo.
We’re a team of 10 people from Switzerland, Germany, Italy, France and the Philippines. Two of us work in IT. So you will be number 3. We currently have three open positions, which means that we’ll count 12-14 people at the end of this year. Our annual growth rate has come to over 50% ever since we were founded in 2006.
When we started five years ago, we were the first copywriting agency on the internet. As we grew, we expanded into the translation business that now generates the majority of our work. Our office is located in the heart of Zurich, in the hot Kreis 5 area.
Fairly straightforward ASP.NET 4.0 Web App with MySQL backend. We are currently migrating from WebForms to MVC and replacing UpdatePanels with jQuery.
Our app handles everything from the order management, handling of translation jobs, crm, billing, etc. We currently have three portals; one for us, one for the customers and one for our freelance translators.
What’s missing is either a good integration with a 3rd party translation tool or our own implementation of some basic features. Likely, it will be a combination of both.
We’re looking for an experienced web developer, but since we are a small company, your job will be very versatile. This means you’ll be working on the following things:
- Frontend with HTML, CSS and jQuery, including some UI/Usability design
- Backend in ASP.NET in C#
- REST API with the ASP.MVC Web API
- MySQL Database development and maintenance
- The occasional client projects (CMS export, file format conversion, etc.)
- Some desktop utility tools or scripts
Willingness to relocate to Zürich is a must. But after all, this is the city with one of the highest living standards in the world.
