Job Posting

Job_announcement_3I am looking for an experienced .NET 2.0 developer to join our team at Husky Energy. This is a challenging role on an established agile team building a complex oil pipeline management system. The skills we are looking for include:

Must Have

  • NET 2.0 (advanced)
  • OO/design patterns skills (advanced)
  • Experience in enterprise application development (advanced)
  • SQL (intermediate)
  • Unit testing (intermediate)

Nice to Have      

  • Crude Pipeline knowledge
  • ReSharper
  • MSBuild
  • Subversion
  • iBatis
  • Developer Express suites
  • WCF

The role is a contract position for one year. The project has 18 months left to go so an extension is likely. We are using a practical set of agile techniques and have the benefit of three full time users dedicated to the project – which in my experience is rare.


Candidates with strong .NET development abilities, a passion to join a high performing agile team, and availability to work in Calgary should send their resume to me at


The team will be doing the technical interviewing so expect some code reviews and coding assignments in the interview. We have a great team in place that work well together so we are particular about finding the right person. Fit is more important than availability, we will wait up to a couple of months to accommodate the availability of the right candidate.
