Why should you join the GeekHive team?
As a long-standing, Sitecore Gold Partner, we pride ourselves on our capability to tackle difficult and unorthodox Sitecore builds and give our developers an opportunity to work on projects that push them to grow. Recent successful implementations by the GeekHive team include exposure to the full range of Sitecore’s extensibility points like custom commands, agents, processors, and SPEAK dialogs, as well as complex search implementations, third party integrations, and SPAs using frameworks like AngularJS and React.
Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept it…
The ideal candidate for the Sitecore Technical Lead position has prior experience developing web applications with the Sitecore CMS platform, strong technical hands on knowledge of Sitecore and possess exceptional team management skills. As a lead developer, you’ll report directly to the Director of Technology and be responsible for the development, implementation, maintenance and support of software solutions, as well as ensuring that the solutions we deliver meet the high-quality expectations our Sitecore clients have grown to expect.
This Sitecore Technical Lead should be a team player, highly qualified to lead medium to large development projects, and organize priorities and tasks. They will be a key contributor in the software development life-cycle – performing analysis, design, and application development – as well as driving development teams to achieve project goals.
Our long-standing team is made up of people from all walks of life, in many states around the U.S., each with a genuine willingness to support one another and a drive to grow and advance ourselves. When you join our team, our hope is you will stay and craft a career you are proud of at GeekHive.
What we’re looking for from you:
Successful candidates will possess:
- 5+ years of experience with Sitecore
- 8+ years of experience with .Net and C# development
- Experience with other CMS is a plus
- Solid understanding of web development, information architecture, CMS and integrated technologies
- Sitecore Certification or MVP status, while not required, is always a plus
- Full-Stack developers are always welcome
Successful employees will be:
- Team leaders willing to work hard to ensure the success of the team, the project and GeekHive
- Always willing and able to jump in and complete basic development tasks alongside their team if and when the need arises
- Curious – problem-solving isn’t a chore, but a welcome exercise to strong candidates
- Good communicators with the ability to conceptualize and articulate ideas clearly and concisely and communicate effectively with clients and their team
- Personal ethics combined with career-oriented professional ambitions are must-have attributes
To learn more about the work that we do, work that you could be a part of, check out some of our case studies:
- Comcast – Partnering with Huge Inc. as their technical implementation team, we rebuilt Comcast’s intranet, from scratch on the Sitecore platform, delivering a solution that is used by over 100k employees daily.
- Shire – Alongside our creative agency partner RFI Studios, we built a solution on Sitecore CMS that could handle Shire’s international properties, provide a seamless customer experience across sites, and provide their content management team with intuitive publishing capabilities.
- Crayola – We helped Crayola transform their CMS into a platform that could easily roll out and launch international sites giving each country their own voice and footprint, while staying on brand globally.
At GeekHive we also encourage our team members to grow their personal brand within the Sitecore community. Our developers are regularly contributors to the Sitecore blog, GeekHive blog, and Sitecore Marketplace. Check out some of the posts below:
- Sitecore Coast: This module allows Sitecore users to copy and paste items or entire content trees between instances.
- Running Sitecore 8 in a Docker Container: We love finding new and interesting ways to do things and apply them to the platforms we work with, this is no exception. While containers are often used for microservices, we wanted to see what we could make it do with an enterprise environment like Sitecore in rapidly provisioning non-production environments.
- Disconnected Sitecore: A Headless and Non-Traditional Approach: “Headless” website architecture, already widely embraced by the Drupal community, impresses both content managers and developers alike with its ability to decouple the front-end and back-end. We used this approach in our Comcast Intranet build and wanted to share our learnings to benefit the rest of the Sitecore community as well.
