ONESTOP Media Group is looking for a Java Developer:
Onestop Media Group is looking for a creative, problem solving developer. This position requires an individual with experience taking a significant role in several past projects. You will be expected to design, build, document and test your solutions in a team environment. The company wants your input on software development processes and system design.
Actually, the primary thing that attracts me to this posting is humor, the visible human nature behind it. This isn’t the HR-sanitized posting, or the carefully phrased list of role and requirements of a big company, it’s a simple posting with a little humor:
Please apply with a cover letter describing why you would fit into our company. They are read, and it’s a good way to differentiate your application from the dozens of bots who will also apply for this job.
The dual-head workstation and coffee sound good, too. The location’s a good one, down by Metro Hall, pretty central and pretty lively.
They don’t sound like they’re looking for a terrifically senior candidate. The mix of PHP and Java would not be surprising in a professional services environment, but it’s a little less obvious in what looks like a kind of product company. But the biggest flaw is the pervasive one: there’s not very much information to go on. We don’t know much about the work, the process, the compensation, and so forth. Just because you’ve got a simple posting doesn’t mean you have to leave quite so much stuff out. So, as usual, if you’re interested, you’ll have to talk to them.
Because they haven’t specified, I can only make assumptions about the compensation, but based on the experience they’re looking for and the overall tone of the posting, I’m assuming they want someone with decent skills and ambition, but not a great deal of experience, and are going to pay accordingly. Maybe a $60k job, for instance?
If you like what they’re doing, or you think what they’re looking for sounds like you, this might be worth further investigation.
