Full-time FileMaker Dev Needed - Connecticut

Recommended Posts


Due to the recent departure of a key member of our FileMaker dev team, we are looking for a full-time dev; the job description follows. This is technically a 9 to 5 office job, but due to COVID-19 there's really no such thing any more, so working remotely is totally acceptable. The team office is in Connecticut, but I'll be honest and say that nobody really goes there any more. You would be working for a global multi-national telecoms corporation, with some responsibility for server and staff support globally; this translates into some flexible/unusual working hours. The job description concentrates on web-based UI/UX because our next major project is to take a very large FileMaker system and convert it entirely to WebDirect, with optimizations for laptop, tablet, and mobile phone. 

There is some possibility of this being part-time or contract work, although that's extremely unusual for this organization, and I'm not certain that management is actually serious about that.

If you're interested, please reach out directly to me with a resume, or with any questions.

Hello Stanley,

I am responding to your search for a FileMaker developer in the hope that we can begin a conversation about possibly working a remote contract with your organization. I am currently in a 6month contract with another organization but I have hours in the day for more work. Would you consider contacting me to talk more?  You can reach me here at fmforums or at fmconsult@fmbiz.net.

Best Regards,

Charles Maitland

Hi Charles

Please reach out to me directly via email: stanley.carswell at telekom.com - because this is a corporate gig, the first step would be to send a resume. As I wrote above, we are considering adding a contractor, and if I can show that there are qualified candidates who fit that profile, then it would strengthen the case to do it that way.
