Currently recruiting for the following 6 month+ contract opportunity in Richmond, VA. If you have a minimum of 3 years of experience with the skills noted in this description please forward a current version of your resume along with contact information to email@example.com. Please indicate where you heard about this opportunity when submitting your resume.
Details: Current application has been in production since 2001 in the current environment and will be migrating to a new environment in December 2005. To support that effort I'd like to employ a consultant for a minimum six month engagement with the opportunity to extend the contract on a monthly basis.
The work: The consultant will be a member of the team focused on migrating the application to the new environment. Responsibility will include migrating data from SQL to Oracle, Re-engineering portions of the application to support the new environment, performance tuning, mentoring jr. developers and other development responsibilities. The development team has recently introduced STRUTS to support the FRB framework and as a result much work exists in re-engineering the controllers, etc... In 2006 a major release of the application will be deployed to production which introduces a redesigned user interface. Around the same time in 2006 we will be changing the application structure to fit into a clustered environment. Also in 2006 we will begin development of web services and introduce a new reporting structure to the application, along with the normal maintenance of an application.
