Join one of the most exciting start-ups in Tampa Bay and work closely with company founders who have started very successful technology companies!

CoLabs is a software incubator that partners with industry leaders to build cloud-based solutions, using artificial intelligence and machine learning, tailored to specific industry challenges.

We are seeking qualified Senior .NET Developers. In this role, you will be heavily involved in many aspects of software product design, development and delivery—from collaborating with other team members and stakeholders to determining the best solution for a technical challenge through ensuring successful product deployment. Our culture is our top priority. We have a hard-working team that loves to make a significant positive impact and has fun while doing it.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Designing, developing, implementing and releasing high-quality software products using Scrum
  • Applying the very best technical agile patterns and practices when building software products
  • Collaborating frequently with CoLabs’ stakeholders and working to build software products that add the most value to their business
  • Working under some supervision from an Architect, but expected to work independently on complex, non-routine tasks (however, collaboration is very important; you may interact with end users and other technical personnel to identify and correct issues)
  • Maintaining continuous, open, consistent and professional communication with stakeholders, peers and team members (this includes listening to others and confirming understanding to ensure everyone is on the same page)
  • Proactively seeking ways to keep all time productive and using non-product time for personal training, internal projects and administrative tasks
  • Working closely with team members on quality-related activities
  • Leading and mentoring junior developers

How you’ll get the job done:

  • Be accountable for value in the work you perform and the service you provide
  • Establish credibility by sharing knowledge related to your personal experiences and working with the team to maintain strong communication throughout each relationship
  • Stick to the game plan: if something gets committed, ensure it gets done
  • Make it your job to know the product being delivered and how it will provide value to a business
  • Something will always come up—but it’s better to play like you’re catching up than to play like you’ve already won
  • Know when to speak up: whether it’s when you need help or when you’re unsure of an outcome
  • Step out of your comfort zone at times
  • Take pride in the work you have accomplished and confidently present to customers
  • Avoid the desire to take shortcuts: maintain consistency in how we approach solutions to ensure successful outcomes
  • Never assume a difficult situation will resolve itself: the passage of time cannot replace identifying and addressing root causes

What you’ll need to succeed:

  • Deep understanding and experience with agile development practices, including unit testing and continuous integration
  • Willingness to take on additional responsibility to ensure team success and quality solutions
  • Be a team player that understands how your own work is important to the team’s success
  • Ability to multitask across different products
  • Become a partner and trusted advisor to stakeholders, advising on best-fit technologies and best practices
  • Good knowledge of Scrum—If you don’t have this, you should possess a willingness to learn and adopt it quickly
  • Familiarity with object serialization using JSON
  • Database development skill using SQL Server
  • Working knowledge of object-oriented design, patterns and practices
  • Deep understanding of the .NET Framework and .NET Core
  • Experience with ASP.NET MVC Core
  • Experience authoring APIs compliant to REST standards

  • Caring attitude—care about what you do, who you do it with and how you’re going to be successful in the end

Qualifications:

  • Technically savvy, entrepreneurial spirit who thrives in environments that reward self-initiative and resourcefulness
  • Non-complainer – everyone has something they’d rather not do
  • Academic background in computer science
  • 8+ years professional software development experience

Benefits and compensation:

  • Open PTO: take as much as you need to maintain a proper work-life balance, including six company-paid holidays and the entire week of Christmas off
