About the Job
  • Job will report to the CEO / owner of business (since he is also the chief developer), however the position will be largely self-managing and self-supervising and coordinate with the client-facing staff (project manager, implementation specialist, and support specialist) and with existing web development team (php/JS/MySQL/WP developer).
    • Candidate should demonstrate their ability to self-motivate, and an eagerness to expand their knowledge base and capabilities in an open work environment with direct access to clients and executives.
    • Traits we’d look for:
      • if a term is mentioned you don’t know, you look it up on google or Wikipedia.
      • You already have a list of online references for coding concepts and technical references (e..g ASCII chart, linux and oracle syntax, etc).
      • You already subscribe to continual skill development like LinkedIn Learning (formerly, Wondrium (formerly The Great Courses), Brilliant, or similar online self-development courses.
      • You seek to understand the business requirements (not just the logical requirements) for the projects you code.
  • Role will be coding primarily in CCL (a proprietary middleware language for Cerner Millennium platform) and CEO can provide all necessary training. However, the bulk of code is already written so plenty to read and learn from already. Immediate ability to code in CCL not required, but to immediately organize and prioritize code diffs, detect differences, design a new overall software architecture and process, and begin aligning and testing code accordingly.
  • Tools we use: Dropbox, Slack, Zoom, LucidChart, Trello, Office 365, BeyondCompare, Navicat, Citrix, HelpScout, HubSpot, WordPress.
  • You can use Windows or Mac; we work on both platforms.
  • Position is “work-from-home” however periodic in person meetings (~every 2 weeks) will be required in Nashville area.
  • Travel is not anticipated except for work sessions in Nashville.
  • Position may work any time of day/night/weekend, however must be available for meetings as needed with team members during normal working days/hours. Occasional off-hours work may be required to fulfill mission-critical issues or code deployments / issues arising outside normal work hours (rare).
  • Ordinary work commitment is anticipated ~40-44 hours / week.
  • Initial commitment is 6 months, with 6 month renewals thereafter (2 months in advance). Expect minimum 2 years run time for this position, dependent on candidate’s ability to excel.
  • Position can lead to leadership position within company with future growth, and/or profit-sharing / equity.
  • Pay structure: 1099 contract role. Medical coverage available. Unlimited time off.

Project Goals
  • Current Goal: free up the CEO from being chief developer so he can further develop sales and products to grow the company.
  • Specific projects:
    • Code Overhaul
      • Alignment across clients, deprecation of old functionality, introduce new functionality where required, performance improvement, coding standards (hygiene), standardized logging. Overall: reduce dependence on chief developer, improve run time and efficiency, more agile for future interfaces, decrease cost to maintain.
    • Develop purge process for data and files
  • Future Goals:
    • New feature and product development
    • Custom work per client

Next Steps
  • Expect 2 interviews: 1 for initial questions, discussion. 2 for discussion of hypotheticals:
    • We ask each other questions: you about the job, company, product, opportunity, etc; us about your background, interests, skills, experience.
    • You show examples of your prior coding and documentation so we can see your organization skills and how you outline complex projects, commenting, repositories, documentation.
    • We show you our code environment, example code, current documentation, demo of software, our customer’s user experience.
    • You provide outline of how you’d spend first 30 and 90 days of job. What you’d want to learn about first, how you’d organize your work, how you’d communicate with us, how you’d report deliverables completed.
    • You tell us your concerns / risks, benefits / upsides, and what additional things you’d want to be successful in the role.
  • Ultimately, this process should indicate for us both that we both are interested in the opportunities each presents to the other.
  • Position will begin as soon as we’ve identified a mutual match.
  • Due to the nature of the confidential material from both sides, we may ask for you to sign a mutual NDA that protects our respective IP.

  • Have you ever worked from home full time (pre-COVID)?
  • Have you ever worked directly for a C-level or CEO?
  • Have you ever worked for a small company (< 20 employees)?
  • Describe your home office. Looking for appropriate investment and conscientiousness toward productivity and effectiveness.
  • Describe how the onboarding process would work. TBD
  • What are the major milestones of the project? In what sequence? (e.g. logging, performance, subroutines, purging, code diffs, customizations / prefs / deprecations, CCL training)
    • Seek their priority and timeline of these items.
  • How will I know if they’re successful or not working out (at 1 / 2 / 4 / 8 weeks)? What will success look like to me?
