Congratulations - we are interested in your employment application !
When submitting an application for employment to Tracker Software Products as you will appreciate it is very difficult to establish an individuals experience level or the quality of the code you write. Therefore we ask all developer's making an application to us to complete this basic, sample development task to establish whether you have the essential minimum skills required.
Usually we will only ask you to perform this simple project as a preliminary step to inviting you to our offices to further your application. If we do not believe you have the basic skills from the information you have provided - usually we would not ask you to perform this simple test.
The sample application would take a reasonably competent developer 2 days or so to complete - so it may be you will wish to do so over a weekend or possibly two.
Once completed and we have received your sample application in both source and binary forms - we will assess its quality and if the project is acceptable and your other credentials appear to be satisfactory, the next step is to invite you to our offices here on Vancouver Island at our expense. This will usually involve 1 -2 days (meaning an over night stay may be necessary) to spend some time with our team here and for a formal interview.
If this process goes well - a formal job offer will then be made either immediately or within a few days at most, depending on the number of applicants we are interviewing.
Please download this description of the required sample application in PDF format and review the task required and when complete - please zip all the source files, project binaries and any required supporting files (e.g. images etc) and send to firstname.lastname@example.org
