70/hr WPF/C# Desktop Developer. 6-12 Months. Contract. Minneapolis, MN. (L-3542) (A)


Are you a C# developer?  Have you focused on desktop solutions as of late (WPF, etc.)?  Any history delivering products that were commerical (not only internal usage)?  If so, this gig might be of interest to you.

In short, the end client is seeking someone to join their team for 6-12+ months as they work to deliver/support a commercial product of theirs.  Candidate must have C#, .NET, and WPF as the role will focus mostly on the desktop component of the software based in C#/WPF (there is also a web/mobile component but this role isn't as engaged on that).  Ideally the candidate will be currently in Minneapolis but we might consider non-local candidates if they can relocate at their cost.  End client will consider 'some' remote possibly after candidate settles in BUT the majority of the time will need to be onsite (so 1 day a week at home perhaps after 1st month, etc.).

So, if this sounds like you, APPLY TODAY!!!

    08/27/19 21:04 PM . Tim Bauer. Closing this out. Heard from client today that our submission wasn't shortlisted (others going to final interview). We'll reopen if those fall through.

    08/21/19 14:12 PM . Tim Bauer. Submitting candidate to client for this role. Open to being onsite. Focused on WPF since 2011 w/ Prism. Commercial application exposure.

    08/13/19 18:22 PM . Tim Bauer. Re-opening this. Hiring manager confirms they are starting over (candidate that got offer backed out). Focus is on someone with C#/WPF Desktop focus in recent years that can work onsite.

    08/08/19 20:56 PM . Tim Bauer. Agent confirms there is an offer out to another candidate so we'll close this out (assume they accept) and reopen if the deal falls through.

    08/08/19 12:49 PM . Tim Bauer. Client interviewed candidate this week. Waiting for feedback.

    07/25/19 14:05 PM . Tim Bauer. Still going. WPF with a commercial software product is the key still.

    07/23/19 15:34 PM . Tim Bauer. Updated lead profile to reflect what the end client is targeting (w/ target years).

    07/23/19 14:47 PM . Tim Bauer. Re-opening this based on clients tabling of our 2 submissions due to commercial software (lack of). Updated lead to refocus sourcing on the commercial product experience.

    07/23/19 14:44 PM . Tim Bauer. Client tables our submission indicating not enough commercial software development background.

    07/18/19 14:26 PM . Tim Bauer. Did share the aforementioned candidate to client last Friday. No feedback/interest as of yet. Continue to hold for that.

    07/10/19 20:59 PM . Tim Bauer. Hold on further submissions. Have identified a pretty solid candidate that lives near the client. We probably will just submit that candidate.
