110/hr Java Lead/Architect with AWS. 6 Months. Contract. Wichita, KS et al. (L-3579) (B)


Are you a java developer with a history of lead/architect roles?  Have exposure to AWS?  If so, this gig might be of interest to you.

In short, the end client is seeking to backfill someone on their current team.  Role is expected to go for 6+ months.  Candidate must have a history of lead roles around java solutions based on AWS as well as experience migrating existing on-premise solutions to the AWS cloud stack.  Ideally the candidate will be currently in Wichita KS but they might consider someone that is open to relocation and/or currently local to Minneapolis if a great fit.  Client prefers face-to-face interviews but will do Skype video if the candidate is strong enough.

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

    02/27/20 15:17 PM . Tim Bauer. Continue to hold here. No movement w/ hiring manager per agent. Trying to get a meeting to get a sense of what to do (or to pull).

    02/27/20 14:26 PM . Tim Bauer. Pinged agent for status.

    02/04/20 15:09 PM . Tim Bauer. Still going. Client manager reached out yesterday to ask on status of one of our earlier submissions (devOps architect was the angle).

    01/14/20 14:33 PM . Tim Bauer. Moving to hold per agent. Seems hiring manager is getting 'slow down' signals from management. We'll loop back if/when this goes active again.

    01/09/20 14:42 PM . Tim Bauer. Still going per agent. We qualified one candidate this week (tbd if submit). Multiple slots still open.

    01/07/20 21:14 PM . Tim Bauer. Based on recent placements for this need (they have multiple slots to fill) rate here needs to be $110 or less (down from 120)

    12/26/19 15:41 PM . Tim Bauer. Still going here.

    12/05/19 12:28 PM . Tim Bauer. Still rolling along (client is still looking for this skill)

    11/25/19 21:27 PM . Tim Bauer. Confirmed this is still going. Client open to relocation candidates if good skill match. Rate could go up to 120/hr to candidate if perfect fit (expected range of candidates is 70-120 depending on experience).

    11/21/19 14:35 PM . Tim Bauer. Pinged agent to see if still going.

    11/07/19 16:20 PM . Tim Bauer. Still going here.

    10/17/19 13:57 PM . Tim Bauer. Still going here per agent.

    10/09/19 13:54 PM . Tim Bauer. Refocus location to WIchita (vs Minneapolis) as that is what the hiring manager is clearly targetting.

    09/19/19 14:59 PM . Tim Bauer. Have one solid candidate in play BUT hiring manager said 'keep em coming' so we'll leave this open for a bit.

    09/12/19 15:46 PM . Tim Bauer. Still going here. Agent passed on one candidate due to lack of depth w/ AWS migration work specifically. Also wanted more hands on (less lead/arch)

    09/09/19 15:16 PM . Tim Bauer. Client prefers candidates that can work in Wichita but are open to someone working in Minneapolis (have some of the team there as well).

    09/05/19 12:44 PM . Tim Bauer. Still going. Haven't seen any solid options as of yet. I would assume that the end client has broadcast this to other vendors now (used to be exclusive).
