0 people like this description

Our large insurance client located in Hartford, CT is looking for an Applications Developer for a 6 month on-site, contract assignment.

The IT Education department at our client provides technical training and curricula for IT disciplines. The department is seeking an application developer to provide enhancements and maintenance for two key applications: ITUniversity (ITU) and ITEducation Express (ITEX). Both areas and needs are explained below. The client will consider candidates who meet either background.


ITUniversity (ITU) is a virtual university built on top of SharePoint 2010. The incumbent will develop code for additional enhancements and provide ongoing maintenance. Experience with HTML/CSS/JavaScript is required as most of the front-end elements were written in these three languages.

For the back end, the candidate should have experience using and configuring SharePoint. Knowledge of these tools will also be essential for ongoing development: CAML Query, SPServices (a jQuery library used to access SharePoint features).

Currently, the ITU database is simply a collection of SharePoint lists, but there are long-term plans to utilize an existing database hosted on the same server as IT Education Express (ITEX), so experience creating and administering SQL databases will also be helpful.

Preferred skills (we are willing to provide training as needed):
• CSS3
• JavaScript
• jQuery / SPServices
• CAML Query
• SharePoint 2010

Optional skills:
• Business Connectivity Services (BCS)



IT Education Express’ (ITEX) was internally developed to manage the administrative details of the department’s services/products and charge back the training costs to the students’ responsibility codes. The department is seeking a technologist to learn the application and provide backup support for maintenance and enhancements.

The application’s front end was primarily written in VB .NET, with a small amount of C# mixed in throughout the codebase. Though our server supports the latest versions of the .NET Framework (3.5/4.0) and we leverage some of the newer AJAX features in certain areas, most of the code was written to target version 2.0 base functionality.
Visual Studio does quite a bit of the user interface coding automatically, so experience with HTML, CSS and JavaScript is highly desirable but not required.

The database currently exists on SQL Server 2012. Changes to the queries or creation of new queries might be necessary, so some fundamental experience with Structured Query Language (SQL) would be helpful, but not required.

Preferred skills (we are willing to provide training as needed):
• ASP.NET, either VB (or C#) – Framework version 2.0 or greater
• Familiarity with HTML/JavaScript/CSS

Optional Skills
