Database Information Specialist

At Codence

USA Only

Codence – on behalf of one of its clients – is looking for a software developer to first join Codence as a FileMaker Apprentice part-time and then potentially move into a full-time position with our client.

Think of it as a job that evolves in two stages. We’ll teach you all we can and make sure you’re set up for success – then you’ll step into a role you already know, with people you’ve met, and begin your “real” job once you've spent a few months with us.

For the first three months, you'll report to Codence's Project Manager and have an opportunity to work on a wide array of tasks -- you'll work on your primary client's system, on other clients' systems, learn FileMaker, no doubt juggle; spreadsheets, data analysis reporting, dash-boarding, and special projects.

You will be working with a broad spectrum of creative and technical opportunities. You’ll have hands-on experience creating FileMaker solutions, web apps, integrations, and more. You don't need to be versed in FileMaker -- we'll teach you that -- but you need to plan on making it a core strength in the months ahead.

We're consultants first – and these qualities are true for our client as well – we look for people with strong written and oral communication, friendly, with a primary focus on serving others. We know you'll be juggling a lot of responsibilities with the primary client -- you'll need to be adept at keeping organized and managing your own work.

What will you learn?
  • How to create, deploy and maintain custom FileMaker solutions to manage customers' data.

  • Process: what the stages of a project are, how to manage them, how to know where you are, when you are.

  • Requirements: you’ll speak with clients, distill their needs, propose and estimate tasks.

  • Development: you’ll create in FileMaker, integrate with other technologies, manage the client's website, and (as you can) write code.

  • Test: you’ll work through our QA processes, work with common tools (Jira) and learn the adage that at 90%, you probably have 90% left to go.

  • You’ll also get to know the specific client who will be driving this apprenticeship – you’ll learn their business, get to know their people, and learn what challenges they face.

It’s important to know that your full-time position will involve taking responsibility for joining the client’s software development team. They’re a small organization, lean, and you’ll wear a lot of hats.

Preferred Specs:

  • 1-3 years of analyst experience.

  • Any knowledge of FileMaker is great... visit Claris to familiarize yourself.

  • Experience with JavaScript, React.js, JSON, and other related technologies.

  • Likewise another great-to-have: REST API and other integrations.

  • Bachelor's degree in Mathematics, Statistics, Economics, Computer Science, Engineering, Finance, or comparable work experience.

No sponsorship is available for this position.
