Follett Library Resources, the leading distributor of books and other
media to school libraries around the world, has an immediate IT opening
for a Senior Programmer. As our tremendous success continues, driven
by our innovative website, we are seeking a smart, curious, positive
professional to do great things in our web-programming department.

As a Senior Programmer, you'll help drive projects from design and
estimation through construction and completion.  You'll use your
programming chops not only to write code, but also to lead project teams
and help guide the technical direction of the department.  No wizards
who like to code in a closet need apply.

We use PHP and Perl for a 3-tier application running on Apache on
Linux, with Oracle on Solaris as the backend. We take life-long learning
seriously, and always look for new technologies to play with. Our rapid
growth guarantees you will not be bored.  We are agile, productive,
and quickly do our magic through short project cycles.  We're a tightly
knit team, we don't work sweatshop hours, we think programming is fun,
and we take great pride in our accomplishments.

Applicants should have 4+ years of application programming experience,
with at least one year of web applications.  You'll be fluent in Perl
or PHP, plus at least one other high-level object-oriented language.
You'll understand basic database design and source code control.
Excellent written and verbal communication is a must.  Experience
administering Oracle or another RDBMS is a plus.

We offer a competitive salary and an excellent benefits package including
medical and dental coverage, a generous 401k plan, profit sharing,
flexible spending plans, full undergraduate tuition reimbursement,
earned time off in the first year and more. We provide a pleasant,
non-smoking office environment in our state-of-the art headquarters and
distribution center in McHenry, Illinois, a far northwestern suburb of
Chicago. We prefer candidates to fax or e-mail resume with cover letter
and salary requirements to:
