Our client is a brand name media company. This is a place that you’ll be excited to tell your friends and family that you are working for.

The solutions frequently involve development and integration of multiple components spanning across on premises and SaaS offerings within the cloud. S/he is detail-oriented and comfortable working in an Agile Scrum environment.

The initial rate would be between $80/hr-$110/hr as a 1099. If you would prefer to be a full employee of AAJ interactive during the contracting period, we can talk through comparable compensation on salary. This is a contract-to-hire opportunity, with the likelihood of conversion after six months. On conversion, the salary would be around $145k/yr plus excellent benefits.

The location for this work will initially be remote, as there will be construction and renovation going on in their offices. After about 3 months, the work will be on-site at our clients’ offices in Springfield VA. Please do not apply if you don’t want to be on-site in the near future. Once the construction is completed you will be required to be on-site the majority of the time – so please don’t apply if you don’t plan to live local to the greater DC area, and can commute to Springfield VA.

If this sounds like you, please respond with your compensation/salary requirements as soon as possible.
Please no telecommuters or agencies.

About AAJ Interactive Technologies:

AAJ Interactive Technologies, established in 1997 by cutting-edge technology executives, is a technology professional-services company supplying project-based consulting, staff augmentation, and recruiting services to leading firms throughout Metropolitan Washington, DC area.

We work differently from most of our competition. In our careers, we have been the ones doing the hiring (managing and mentoring large staffs in a corporate culture), and we have been the ones being hired (consulting in small and large roles alike). This unique perspective allows us to understand both sides of this business.

We believe that because of our principles we have succeeded where others have failed. The recruiting/technology space can be full of companies that are not really looking out for your interests – ask around … we’re not one of them! We want you to succeed, and we’ll do everything we can to help you do just that!
