We are a leading Sitecore Gold partner, with 10+ years of experience developing major digital ecosystems on Sitecore. Our well-known clients span a wide range of sectors, with a high concentration in healthcare, financial services, and direct-to-consumer markets. At TBG, we work on a variety of interesting projects in a range of industries; check out our portfolio.

TBG is seeking a full-time Senior .NET Sitecore developer to work with our team building large websites and applications. The Senior .NET developer role at TBG is a combined developer / lead technical architect role. If you're looking for a stimulating and engaging position and work environment at a successful, growing company, this job is for you!

We are ideally looking to hire Senior .NET Developers who are Sitecore certified with Sitecore CMS experience. If you are a .NET Developer with sustained lead developer / lead architect experience, and experience working with CMS, but not necessarily Sitecore certified or with Sitecore experience but are excited to learn, we want to hear from you!

We currently have two full-time openings:

  1. .NET Sitecore developer focused on development for multiple accounts and projects. 

  2. .NET Sitecore developer focused on development around a single large Sitecore ecosystem for one of our longtime banner clients. Multiple developers work on this client's ecosystem among other projects, but this role would be entirely dedicated to the client, and would ultimately become familiar with all aspects of the ecosystem.

The candidate should be comfortable working through structured, modular, and well-documented development processes, but also have enough flexibility to work in a mid-size and busy company working in teams on rapid-development projects. 

In addition to building large websites and applications for clients and functioning as a lead architect on projects, this role will work closely with TBG's Technical Director and other senior technical team members on internal projects that promote the maintenance, standardization, adoption and documentation of best development practices. This includes activities such as researching current advances in development methodology and new technologies.

Maturity, creativity, strong problem-solving abilities, a detail-oriented and best practices approach to one’s work, and the general ability to understand client needs expressed in multiple types of requirements are a must. We are seeking candidates who are meticulous, hard-working, able to multitask, have a high level of focus, and have a strong inherent interest in developing outstanding websites that solve real world problems. Strong written and verbal communication skills are important as well as a high level of personal organization. A focus on completing scheduled work within budgeted hours for a project, good stress management, and the ability to meet deadlines are essential. Note: Some travel required. 

The position requires the developer to be capable of working on the complete project life-cycle of implementing, extending and integrating complex content management systems. Candidate should be able to work well with project teams, as well as interface with clients as needed. The position requires a senior level candidate that serves as the internal technical team leader as well as the lead developer / technical architect interfacing with the client. 

This includes:

  • Evaluating request for proposal documents and providing estimates
  • Attending new business, client presentations, and industry conferences as needed
  • Providing hours estimates and maintaining timelines
  • Assisting in requirements gathering
  • Providing critical review of wireframes and functional designs

  • Writing documentation for and performing client training
  • Supporting existing websites with new development and performing maintenance tasks
  • Contributing to TBG's technical knowledge and expanding the company's outside presence through writing blog posts and participating in online developer communities and forums as applicable
