(Even more!) Lisp developers, MCNA Dental, Ft Lauderdale, FL.

MCNA Dental of Ft Lauderdale continues to win new business and is developing cutting-edge enterprise software to help it manage the growth. Management has asked me to let the world know MCNA is still looking for solid, self-starting Common Lisp developers willing to relocate to sunny Ft Lauderdale, FL for permanent or consulting positions, permanent preferred. Telecommuting is highly unlikely to be considered just now. We are doing very cool things in Common Lisp and Postgres, including programming the Web via my qooxlisp library which largely hides the Javascript. We have a strong team of five developers but with the ambitious software goals and rapid growth MCNA will consider adding one or two strong candidates. Note that a strong developer in any Lispy language will be considered for a permanent position. Resumes and letters of interest can be sent to ktilton at mcna dot net.


Cheers,

Lisp Developers, Ft Lauderdale, Florida; possible telecommute

Gentleman,

I just signed on as the lead of an eight-month project to take a fast-growing Ft Lauderdale health-insurance company’s web portal to the next level in a complete re-write expected to take eight months. This is just the beginning for them so they prefer permanent hires who will stay on for much more work ahead. We’ll be using AllegroCL and, for the database, AllegroGraph. We have an immediate need for up to five developers experienced in Lisp-family languages and with solid experience in Web development, database programming, and/or KR. The client much prefers people to be local/permanent but will fall back on telecommuters if necessary so the latter should feel free to contact me.

Cheers, Ken
