Help Wanted: .Net Coding Heroes and Mobile Development Ninjas

We’re hiring for our Lisbon office, in Portugal.

We’ve been going strong for more than 18 years now, focused on our growth and working on accomplishing our product and international strategy.

The perks of working in our team go from joining a debt-free, solid company, with a relaxed & informal office environment, with direct contact with its senior team and the capability to directly influence the product roadmap. Also, we do have Raspberry Pi and LattePanda kits available in-house. Tech culture is important in our office, and we can get as geek as one can be.

In case you didn’t knew already, a Software Developer makes software for the world to use. This includes researching, designing, coding, implementing, and testing software. A Software Developer will likely take part in design, implementing proof of concepts, computer programming and participate on the management of the projects to see them to fruition.

If you’ve seen the tv show The IT Crowd, we are looking for someone who codes like Maurice Moss (with or without women slacks) and easy-going like Roy Trenneman.

Mandatory Must-Knows:

The Software Developer should be capable of debugging, fixing, testing and writing new code on the following languages:

  • C#/ASP.NET and SQL;
  • HTML5CSS and JavaScript.

Also, we need to be able to fluently communicate with you in Portuguese and English, so speaking and writing in these languages and having good communication skills is important.

Interested?

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

The 4th Industrial Revolution and SharePoint: PERFECT TOGETHER

Even Bill is Trying to Find His Way Around the 4th Industrial Revolution

In a recent interview with “WSJ. Magazine”, Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates said the company’s quantum-computing project is “the one part of Microsoft where they put up slides that I truly do not understand.

Even Bill Gates is challenged to cope with the 4th Industrial Revolution’s pace of change.

If you still think of your company as a pipeline (think 3 row battlefield formation) instead of a change empowered company (think guerilla warfare), then your decision-making process probably reflects the same. If you cannot collaborate with agility, obtain input from the several stakeholders and get proposals in a timely manner to the management team so decisions can be achieved while they’re still relevant, then close up your laptop and go back to using an abacus to calculate how long you have until you’re unemployed.

Let that sink in – Borders, Xerox, Kodak…

Your Organization cannot tolerate slow decision-making processes and be out maneuvered.

Enable Change Adaptability and Organizational Resilience

The hurdles to change are challenging – compliance, regulatory and legal pressure, internal resistance to change, and the established culture.

On the other hand, the internal hierarchical structures, checks and balances and corporate governance bodies are there for a reason. These won’t go away – thankfully.

In the past decisions were binary, be a “1” or a “0”; automation verses manual data processing. In the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution and quantum computing brings a parallel choice: be a “1” or be a “0” or a “1 AND a 0”.

mikeLamond“Decisions including quantum, cognitive, and machine learning computing will have long-term lasting impact“

 said Mike Lamond, President Advisory Innovation Group and a Smart Governance partner.

New tools need to be added to the Management Toolbox to make decisions to invest in “Qubits” and not just bricks and mortar.

You can’t really run from what’s coming. You need to face it. You need to handle it. And you need to survive it.

Your Organization needs to be nimbler making decisions, embracing change and adapting to a fast paced and fluid reality. This is only possible if your Organization’s central nervous system, it’s decision-making process, is more agile, collaborative, adaptable, accountable while remaining compliant.

This is only possible if your governance practice is Industry 4.0 enabled.

And this is within your reach.

Do Governance in a Smart Way

SMART GOVERNANCE is a software product, developed by CAVEDIGITAL, which renders entire decision-making ecosystems paperless and agile on Microsoft SharePoint.

Out-of-box, this includes all hierarchical decision-making processes and the corporate governance processes (committee meetings, leadership team meetings, board of directors meetings, and other corporate governance meetings) – all in one streamlined process, and on a single platform. When proposals receive a decision, these can then be forwarded for execution to the relevant stakeholders in the organization.

Additionally, multi-organizational decision-making processes are also supported (e.g.: parent company and subsidiaries, city council and city agencies, ministry and government agencies, etc.).

SMART GOVERNANCE enables organizations to implement best of breed practices in their decision-making processes, while empowering with collaboration and still being able to handle a high volume of complex hierarchical and corporate governance structures.

Achieving transparency, compliance, auditability and accountability is key so these organizations are not opaque to their Leadership Teams, who gain access in real time to information and agile cross-organization processes.

So Bill or anyone else, please contact us to learn how to make sure your 4th Industrial Revolution organization isn’t lined up in the field like sitting ducks but is positioned to attack from the hedge rows.

If you’d like to learn more about SMART GOVERNANCE and explore it’s capabilities, reach out to us to schedule an in-person presentation and demonstration while attending European SharePoint Conference in Dublin, from November 13th to 16th, 2017. We’ll also be in Chicago for SharePoint Fest from December 5th to 8th, 2017.
