Looking for Lotus developer-consultant at PSC

It’s a new year and we need to start it off right.  How?  By hiring another Lotus consultant developer to our team.

We’re looking for the usual skill set:

  • strong development skills
  • strong web development skills
  • knowledge of web development outside of the standard Lotus package: JS, CSS, extJS
  • hopefully some XPages or at least the aptitude to learn it quickly.

In addition to the technical skills, we would love to hire someone who can manage him or her self, their clients, their projects and maybe even others.

PSC is in Chicago.  We would prefer local candidates, of course.

If you have what it takes or know someone who does, please get in touch with me.


Looking for a Lotus Domino Administrator

I’m looking for a Lotus Domino administrator with a good rounded infrastructure background.  The mix of technical skills I’m looking for is pretty typical:

  • Lotus Domino 8.5 — infrastructure and architecture
  • Lotus Notes 8.5 — deployment and support
  • SameTime — infrastructure, architecture and deployment
  • BlackBerry — infrastructure and architecture
  • General networking and infrastructure skills — DR planning, topology planning, routing, VPN, security, etc.

I’m not looking for an absolute expert but you need to be confident and be able to think, learn and adapt on the fly.

What is most important to me is your consulting skills.  You’ll be dealing with my clients and my clients are very important to me.  You need to be able to think, advise and lead.

PSC Group is located in Chicago.  The Lotus market in Chicago has been hit hard.  I’d love to help someone in our local Lotus community.  But keep in mind that, along with local projects, there is some travel involved.

Drop me a note, if you think you’ve got what it takes.
