I had been sitting on this news until things were more finalized, but now I think it’s time to let the cat out of the bag. I have recently accepted a position with Telligent as a Software Development Engineer in their Services division!
Telligent is well known for their community-based platform, Community Server. For those who haven’t heard of it, Community Server is the premier platform written in .NET for blogging, forums, file, and photo sharing and it powers many Community-based web sites such as the ASP.NET Forums, MSNBC Blogs, and many others.
As an SDE for the Services team, I will be working on projects for Telligent’s clients doing both custom development as well as customization of Community Server to enable clients to engage their customers more directly through sites that help build communities rather than solely push out content.
I think this type of customer interaction will become more important as companies try to differentiate themselves by opening a more direct dialogue with their customers. Companies utilizing this approach are proving to be more successful than those companies that rely solely on market indicators and statistics to determine what their customers really want. Telligent’s CEO, Rob Howard, seemed to echo the same sentiment as he spoke about his vision for Telligent recently on DotNetRocks.
I want thank both Jason Alexander, Telligent’s CTO, and Scott Dockendorf, Telligent’s Director of Services, for providing me with this opportunity and making the hiring process as smooth as possible.
Jason told me that my blog was one of the reasons he reached out to me. You never know where your blog can lead you. So if you’re a developer looking to get noticed, ditch your flair, and start blogging!
