Looking For Opportunities

by Jon Davis 19. July 2008 02:31

I recently put in my resignation notice (finishing as of August 1), feeling it was time to move on, so I am on the "job hunt", hoping primarily for a role where I can specialize in something like:

  • Architectural leadership and core development in any new system or software product
  • Software product management
  • Search engine development
  • Social networking development

The first two of the bullets above are not titles I have actually "owned" before. They are roles, however, that after 12 to 13 years of doing what I do professionally I feel I've picked up the capacity, the individual experiences, the detail-mindedness, and the ability to focus on the bigger picture while nitpicking the finer aspects of a project, that I feel I could genuinely do a lot of good in either area.

Meanwhile I have always been and will continue to be available for short-term, invoiced-by-the-hour contracts in C#, SQL Server, and/or ASP.NET. Normally I limit my availability on that to evenings and weekends, but things are obviously different, for now, so any time of any day is fine.

References are hard to come by because time flies and head hunters have abused the references-calling in the past, but my LinkedIn profile/resume (with a couple written recommendations) is available on request.

About the author

Jon Davis (aka "stimpy77") has been a programmer, developer, and consultant for web and Windows software solutions professionally since 1997, with experience ranging from OS and hardware support to DHTML programming to IIS/ASP web apps to Java network programming to Visual Basic applications to C# desktop apps.
Software in all forms is also his sole hobby, whether playing PC games or tinkering with programming them. "I was playing Defender on the Commodore 64," he reminisces, "when I decided at the age of 12 or so that I want to be a computer programmer when I grow up."

Jon was previously employed as a senior .NET developer at a very well-known Internet services company whom you're more likely than not to have directly done business with. However, this blog and all of jondavis.net have no affiliation with, and are not representative of, his former employer in any way.
