ColdFusion Muse

The Muse has Cash and He's Not Afraid to Use It!

The hardest thing about running a ColdFusion development shop is getting in front of the people who might need your help. Thousands of companies could use the expertise we offer but it can be very difficult to approach them. In spite of our culture, our transparency, our chameleon-like flexibility, our unique reputation, our high competency and our focus on communication and productivity, CTO's and CIO's tend to lump CF Webtools in with the outsourcing crowd. That's just not who we are. The truth is, once we gain the ear of someone who needs us we have an amazing record at closing the deal and retaining the customer. We alleviate the pitfalls of ColdFusion (oh yes, there are pitfalls) and allow the benefits to shine. We simply bring too much to the table to ignore.

So that's the Gordian knot the Muse has been trying to unravel for the last 18 months or so as we have doubled and tripled in size. How do I get the name and reputation of my fantastic company in front of the folks who need us? I mean, besides a holocaust cloak ("...Then why wasn't it listed among our assets?") what do we have to work with? My executive team and I have spent a few weeks mulling this over and we have concluded that perhaps our greatest asset is our connection with developers within the ColdFusion Community.

The truth is that when a developer who has developed for a decision maker recommends us to that individual he or she is far more likely to listen and take our pitch seriously. After all, finding good ColdFusion talent is difficult. In our experience it is referrals that seal the deal. We began thinking, both the Muse and the CF Webtools staff tends to be engaged in user groups, forums, lists, and events focused on ColdFusion. Instead of dedicating a big chunk of money to a marketing budget (of dubious return) we had an epiphany. Why spend money on promotions and ads when the connection we need is right in front of our cfnose. Let's pay our friends in the community for their referrals.

The Big Plan

So our big plan is simple, we are going to generously reward any developer who refers a company to us that subsequently becomes a customer. The rules are simple. First, you need to be a part of the ColdFusion developer community. We are not looking to line the pockets of recruiters. But if you are in IT and work with ColdFusion you are a candidate. Finally your lead must result in a sale for you to get paid. In short, for forwarding a name to us you could get a check in the mail - that's it! Read on for the nitty gritty details.

The Muse Wants Your Talent (and Your Resume)

Yes it's true! CF Webtools is looking yet again for qualified advanced developers. We have two immediate openings on our development staff at this time. It's not due to turnover (far from it). Rather, it's because we have a burgeoning list of extremely exiting customers and projects that need our expert attention. What's it like working for CF Webtools?

  • Never Boring - our staff is lively, energetic, positive and usually funny (well... they think they are funny). Among our eclectic group are golfers, motorcycle enthusiasts, belly dancers, photographers, gamers (shocking I know), fencers (as in touche'), rock climbers, fisherman, fireman, musicians, family people, single people (mostly hot), dog people, cat people, PC people and Mac people. We even have the mother of a fashion model. With all that energy it's a wonder we get anything done. But the truth is we all love what we do and we are stronger together than separately.
  • Professionally Stimulating - Stay with us long enough and you'll work on every version of ColdFusion back to version 5 (or at least you'll hear stories). We have large legacy codebase's that we maintain, as well as pure greenfield projects. We have mobile (lots and lots of mobile), Mura, FW/1, Home Grown, Model Glue, Mach II, Fusebox, ColdBox, and a box of crackers in the break room. We use MS SQL, Oracle, MySQL, and Sybase. We have apps using maps, apps using web services, apps using APIs and API's using our apps. If there's a "way to do a ColdFusion application" we have seen it, done it and probably maintained, refactored it and maybe invented it. So if you are a lover of programming, programming languages and ColdFusion in particular, you will love it here.
  • Interested in Balance - as noted above we are not looking for developers who are so entrenched in a technical life that they have no time for anything else. Professional developers with high productivity and high aptitude are above all balanced. They love ColdFusion and can't wait to code (most days) but they also love eating out, movies, spending time with their kids, going to the gym, cruises, photography, and vacations. We have found that the developer with a whole life (I mean balanced and full of loving relationships - not the insurance) is the one that fits our staff, communicates well, and thrives here at CFWT.

Ok admittedly that is a lot of hyperbole but I know you've come to expect nothing less from the Muse. Meanwhile it is a great place to work and we are thrilled to be able to employ so many talented and wonderful developers.


Here's the Blurb. Can you:
  • Take ownership of a problem.
  • Think around all angles of a problem for all possible solutions
  • Love the tech community as a place to engage and learn.
  • Have evolved skills in an eclectic mix of technologies and like to learn new ones.
  • Can explain technical concepts to non-technical folks.
  • Know how to honor non-technical people for their own skills and expertise.
  • Can laugh, chortle, guffaw and otherwise split a gut with a group of insanely funny people - without the need to put anyone down.
  • Are anxious to be a part of a close knit team who encourages and believes in you.
And here are the Tech Skills:
  • Advanced ColdFusion - note, we will test you. We are looking for folks who know more than syntax on a web page. You should be well versed in the guts of complex ColdFusion application building.
  • Advanced Database Skills - I don't mean you need to know how to build, manage and restore DBs. But you should know how to write a complex query and/or a stored procedure for one or more of the "big three" DB platforms.
  • Some diverse technology skills - we don't necessarily dictate what that is but we are looking for folks with a broad swath of skills. Right knowing and developing in .NET, doing IOS/Droid development (or phone gap), and troubleshooting CF servers and server admin are skills that might give you an edge in your application. But if you come to us with several skills that we don't need at the moment you would still be an attractive candidate.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you allow telecommuting? Yes all our development positions are full-time remote positions.
  • What sort of dev environment can I expect? We are en eclipse shop and rely on SVN, Jenkins, and an agile like approach to development. Having said that, as an outsource development company we frequently integrate with external teams. That means you can't always predict everything about the approach for the project you are working on.
  • What Industries are you working in? We have sites we develop and maintain in the Financial sector (stocks, options, commodities, retirement planning and management etc.), Insurance, Medical, Pharmaceutical, retail sales, real estate, etc. We have a very broad client list.
  • Will I get to meet the Muse? Yes of course... you'll be sick of me inside of two weeks. Eventually you can stop calling me the muse but the shrine has to stay up for at least a year.
  • Do you use frameworks? Yes - all of them all the way back to Fusebox 2. We work on new projects in common frameworks like FW/1 or DI/1, but we also support a host of legacy applications done on custom frameworks or with no framework at all.

As stated above, our positions are full-time remote telecommute. On rare occasions they might require some travel. We pay a competitive salary and benefits. CF Webtools maintains sites on virtually all ColdFusion and Database platforms. Our work is challenging, invigorating, sometimes poke-your-eyes-out frustrating, but never boring. Our development group is full of witty, interesting and extremely talented developers. It's a true mentoring community. If that sounds like a place you would like to work (and you meet our high skill-set standards) send your resume to jobs@cfwebtools.com - or contact the Muse directly if you like. Tweet me @cfwebtools or use the "Ask a Muse" link on this blog (I'm easy to find).

Please note - while I'm getting better, I'm not am often pulled in many directions. If you feel like I have "dropped the ball" when you sent me a resume in the past - you are probably right. Please don't hesitate to contact me again. I'll make sure that Jason and Melissa (who handle the details) don't let you fall through the cracks this time.

You Might be a Muse All-Star

About twice a week I have a developer send me an email chatting about their current job and wondering if they should send me a resume. The answer is always yes! Send me a resume! I mean... what could it hurt? Generally I will walk you through our CF Testing procedure and "pre-qualify" you to work on the CF Webtools (CFWT) team. Then if I have openings you might get an offer, but even if I do not have openings I can guarantee that sooner rather than later I will have openings. With 27 developers you can bet we will be looking for new CF Talent - and other talent as well. In fact, let's play "...you might be a Muse all-star".

  • If you think pouring through the latest CF 10 docs looking for "hidden gems" is the equivalent of a day at the Louvre... you might be a Muse all-star.
  • If you have turned down a night out so you could sit at home and migrate a fusebox app to FW/1... you might be a Muse all-star.
  • If you have traveled more than 50 miles to attend a meeting just because Ray Camden, Sam Farmer, Ben Forta, Ben Nadel or Sean Corefield was presenting ... you might be a Muse all-star (extra points if it was actually a webcast).
  • If you have made more than 2 useful comments on this blog... you might be a Muse all-star.
  • If you have a technical blog that I've ever linked to... you might be a Muse all-star.
  • If you have ever refactored an entire CFC service layer "just so you could see what it looked like in pure cfscript"... you might be a Muse all-star.
  • If you love frameworks but are not married to any one of them... you might be a Muse all-star.
  • If you like ribbing windows experts (or mac experts or Linux experts) but can still be friends with them... you might be a Muse all-star. (If not move back home you still need your mother)
  • If your skill set is eclectic enough to include high level skills in at least 3 IT areas including ColdFusion... you might be a Muse all-star.
  • If you think "exercising your right to vote" has something to do with the CF 10 bug list... you might be a Muse all-star.
  • If your mouth waters just a little when you hear about a programming problem that someone couldn't solve... you might be a Muse all-star.
  • If you like other developers, other people, communities both real and virtual and hob knobbing with folks who are experts at something other than IT... you might be a Muse all-star.
  • If you are ready for a change that includes well supported SDLC infrastructure, full time remote development (live where you want to), great flexibility, benefits, and a terrific community of developers... you might be a Muse all-star.

As of right now the Muse is looking for ColdFusion developers and IOS/Android developers. We are giving special consideration to any developer with a high level skill set in ColdFusion and either .NET or PHP (not dabblers - you have to be good at both). Our sales projections show us growing to add at least 4-6 developers by the end of this fiscal quarter. So if you are in the market to make a change, or if you are a contractor who loves working from home but is tired of having to gin up your own work, do please send me your resume. You can send it to jobs@cfwebtools.com or send it to mkruger - or tweet me at @cfwebtools and let me know you want to explore the possibilities.

New Opportunities: Boston/Providence and Omaha

The Muse is on the lookout for any and all ColdFusion resources in the Boston/Providence area. One of our Tier 1 clients is looking to build a new team in that area and is asking for our assistance. So if you are a senior developer who thinks you can get through my grueling test and interview process and you want to work for a terrific consulting company that has doubled in size in the last year - send your resume to jobs@cfwebtools.com and let's have a chat.

On a related note I am looking for some local Omaha talent as well. Specifically I need a design resource that specializes in User Interface Design - creating user lexicons, visibility analysis, consistency, error and feedback standards, recognition vs. recall, minimalism etc. - and you live in or around the Omaha area (and by around I mean Sioux City, Lincoln, Council Bluffs and the Omaha Metro area), then feel free to contact me. We might have a great opportunity for you to make a significant contribution to an amazing suite of applications for a thriving business. Again - you would have to live in and around Omaha, or at least be willing to brook the subject of moving to Omaha within a reasonable time frame.

For those of you waiting for me to call you about the resume you already sent me in the last few weeks (there are about 15 or 20 of you) hang in there. We are in a 4 week cycle right now so you can bet I'll be contacting you very soon.

Omaha: America's Best Kept Secret

What does Warren Buffet know that you don't know (aside from Ben Bernanke's phone number)? Warren is worth billions and he could live anywhere in the world. Where does he choose to live? Right here in Omaha Nebraska. Mr. Buffet lives in the same house that he has lived in for over 40 years. He bought it for 31,500 thousand dollars in the 1958 and it is currently valued at a modest 700 or 800 thousand dollars. He drives himself around town in his late model Cadillac (he auctioned off his Lincoln town car recently). We see him occasionally tooling around with his license plate "THRIFTY". A man that rich and powerful who is so at ease with himself chooses to live right here in middle America. He must know something - right? Actually, Omaha is consistently ranked among the top 10 places to live.

In fact you should consider moving to Omaha. We have all the advantages of a big city but you can still drive anywhere in town in 30 minutes or less. Try that in Los Angeles or Chicago. We have a terrific arts community. We have numerous thriving ethnic communities. We have low crime and a low cost of living. For the price of a modest 3 bedroom house in LA or Boston you can live in a 4000 square foot garage-mahal on the 9th green of one of our excellent golf courses. Not only that, but Omaha is often reported to have more millionaires per capita than any other city in the US. While this report is probably not provable, it has enough credence to find it's way into newspapers and publications (hmmmm... sounds like Warren's not the only smart guy in Omaha). Check out this article for a bit more info on Omaha's affluent nature.

Of course the point of this blog post is to try and attract some Coldfusion talent to Omaha. As usual CF Webtools is currently looking diligently for additional staff. We are looking for at least one advanced developer, but we are taking all resumes and would consider additional staff if you seemed to be a good fit for us. Even if you are a web developer who just wants to learn Coldfusion we would love to check out your credentials and possibly give you a shot. Send your resume to me or Jason and we will contact you.
