Who We Are
Workstate is an interactive consultancy with offices in Columbus, Ohio and Seattle, Washington. Our clients range from growing medium-sized companies listed on Fast Company’s “Fast 50” to large corporations in the Fortune 500.
Workstate’s core group of consultants have been working together since 1997. Our mission is to build a company focused on the success of our clients as well as the personal growth of our employees.
Why We Need Someone
Simply put, our past success drives our growth. We need smart, self-starting people who can come in and pick up projects with little supervision.
What the Job Will Require
We are looking for a proven developer with 4-6 years of experience. Most (but not all) projects will involve web development so at least 50% of your experience should be in this area and up-to-date with regard to standards and techniques.
Strong experience with .NET or J2EE is a must. Additional technologies & standards of interest include:
- SQL Database Servers (MySQL, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, etc.)
- jQuery or other client-side layout and/or interaction technologies
- CMS integration
- Object-oriented development
- Testing / debugging
- Technical spec writing
- Good written and verbal communication, including with non-technical people
- Ability and interest to learn new technologies on the fly, as they become needed
The ability and interest to learn is one of our most desired attributes in a candidate. If you can demonstrate an aptitude to dig in up to your elbows and build experience in new technologies as you deliver projects utilizing those technologies successfully, your application will move to the top of the pile.
Your initial engagement will be on a contract basis. After that, it’s up to you. Continued contract work or a permanent salaried position is available to proven consultants. The Workstate work environment provides experience in a lot of different areas. Here’s a list of some of the technologies we work with on a regular basis:
Application Frameworks - .NET, J2EE, COM, Win32
Web Application Frameworks – ASP.NET, JSP, PHP, Struts, Rails
User Interface Toolkits – HTML, CSS, jQuery, YahooUI, Sencha, HTML5/Canvas, Windows Forms, Flash

Content Management Systems – Liferay, Sharepoint, Sitecore, DotNetNuke & others.
Aside from the implementation of software systems, you will be encouraged to keep up-to-date on the latest technologies and advancements in software development as a profession.
This position is in Columbus, Ohio so we require that you either already live in the Central Ohio area or are prepared to move here.
What Benefits We Will Provide
Our benefits package for salaried associates include health, vision and dental insurance, 20 days of paid vacation per year, and a retirement investment plan. We also have a fridge stocked with soft drinks and plenty of coffee to go around.
