We are a close-knit, established team of developers providing tools and
applications to internal customers for data analysis and network element
provisioning.  Seeking a self-motivated person who can take initiative and
learn quickly, operating in a dynamic environment with a considerable
degree of autonomy.  We would consider someone recently out of college or
grad school if they could demonstrate aptitude and a willingness to work
hard and be teachable.

This position offers a little more than average in terms of
job-satisfaction and purpose, since our work directly impacts the
reliability and effectiveness of mobile 911 calls and Wireless Emergency
Alerts on a major wireless carrier.

T-Mobile is unusually generous with vacation time, offering 19 days
(almost 4 weeks) personal time off, accrual starting immediately, and up
to 29 days (almost 6 weeks) vacation if you stay long enough.  This on top
of 8 paid holidays each year.  The environment is very family-friendly -
telecommunications people tend to be passionate while at work, but greatly
value their work-life balance.
