Pay Rate: Negotiable upon experience, but we are willing to pay, W-2 rate of up to $72/hour, and 1099 rate of up to $80/hour. If project extends for an additional 12 months, can offer salary plus benefits.*
Initial Length: 4 months, or until April 2008. Extension expected after initial 4 months.
Looking for a seasoned JBoss consultant with senior developer or architect experience to work on a system replacement project along with the departments web application operations team to configure, set up and administer a JBossAS development, QA, training and high-availability production environment. The ideal candidate will have a proven history of creating and maintaining these environments for use by multiple J2EE applications.
We also require at least 2 years of JBoss administration experience (clustering, high availability performance tuning), along with a strong knowledge of deploying and configuring J2EE applications on JBossAS. The ability to mentor staff in becoming proficient JBoss Administrators and JBoss portal experience with set up/configuration is a plus.
Expected deliverables inlcude:
Documentation from the architecture review of the existing configurations.
Estimate and recommend changes to improve performance and/or system stability.
Here are areas where the consultant should feel comfortable and have some applicable experience:
Here are questions posed during the interview:
* What is your server clustering experience, have you been responsible for performance tuning in a Solaris and/or Linux environment?
* How strong, cite example, are your JBoss configuration skills?
* Experience with set up /administration of JBoss portal in a clustered environment?
* Was the JBoss portal/server tree being shared, and what was the deployment method? EJB's for the Java stack?
* Have you done EJB and JBoss customizations, setting up cluster service?
* What experience have you had setting up user groups / JBoss support?
* Which would you use for customization - CVS or Subversion and why? Have you migrated from CVS to Subversion [version tracking system]? Have you set up JBoss in either CVS or Subversion and how would you set up authentication?
* Have you done server performance and load testing?
Here is my view on the project:
Our VP, Services' take is that this role in JBOSS is more like 4 to 18 months. The initial set up/install/config/stabilization of the environment in JBOSS/Solaris or Linux will continue past 4 months if the environment makes it past the proof of concept and pilot phase. Right now the C-4/Case Management system from California can run on WebLogic, but the state is pushing for JBOSS/Solaris or Linux. So after the 4 months, a lot of things might happen. It will be what you make it and also what works best in the environment. The reality is after install and stabilization, constant tweaking and optimization will be needed. There are some JBOSS admins in lower capacities out at the state currently. And of course to keep your skill set sharp, and to continue in analysis, design, implementation, architecture and development, you will need to apply a consultants mindset while out at the state to find the projects or work with CRI to create them. We've got a few people out there right now that have been out there 5+ years in good roles moving around the agency.
