Our organization is looking for a software developer to join a four-person in-house team.  The candidate will be working with relational databases - as both a FileMaker Pro developer and web developer - and should have at least a year of experience in both modern web technologies (LAMP/HTML5/CSS3/JS) as well as recent FileMaker Pro releases.

In addition to a turn-key FileMaker Pro database system, we have a growing web presence including our primary site built with ExpressionEngine and other auxiliary web applications built in PHP and the popular PHP framework Laravel. 

Data will be shared between FileMaker Pro and mySQL as the back end for the web application, and will be synchronized programatically.  All front-end development is done in-house, as well.

In this fast-paced and rapidly changing environment, candidates should be able to work under pressure, handle many projects at once while staying organized, and communicate clearly to users with limited technical know-how.

Experience with both FileMaker Server and Linux Server technologies is preferred.  In this predominantly-Mac environment, candidates should have significant experience with Mac OS X operations as well as networking fundamentals.


  At least three years working with relational databases - ideally mySQL or FileMaker

  At least one year developing with FileMaker Pro, version 7 or later

  At least two years developing with PHP, preferably with an MVC Framework

  Experience with LAMP(Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) environment

  HTML5/CSS3/JS proficiency

  Experience communicating with end users who have limited knowledge of software development and other computer-related technologies

  Ability to think creatively in order to solve problems

  Organized, thorough, flexible, and able to manage multiple projects at one time

  Dedication to good documentation

  Ability to complete work assignments quickly and under pressure

  Willingness to perform tasks outside of job description, if called on to do so



  Experience with FileMaker Server or Linux server administration

  Front end user interface design experience

  Experience developing sites with WordPress

  JavaScript Libraries: jQuery and Backbone.js

  Experience with graphic design, video editing or photography

  Understanding of and enthusiasm for labor unions

  Hardware troubleshooting abilities



Excellent benefits package (including medical, dental, optical, prescription drugs, pension, Pre-paid Legal, Flexible Spending Accounts, Life Cycle Benefits, Long-Term Care Insurance, and other benefits) with family coverage (including domestic partner).
