Looking For A PHP Development Job

« »

I went in to work yesterday morning to find out the sad news that the contract I had been hired to work on had been canceled last week. The company tried to find work for me, but was unable to do so. I am now another casualty of the struggling economy. It’s a shame, but I understand that the “last in first out” principle of employment, and I understand the business need.

The company was generous in the severance offered, and there is no malice towards them for what happened. As of today, I’m officially back on the open job market, and I’m looking for work as a PHP developer.

I’d prefer to stay in DC, but I’m willing to telecommute and travel occasionally for business. For those interested, you can contact me at resume@brandonsavage.net for a copy of my resume, and you may read my current online resume.

Working for Applied Security was a wonderful opportunity, and I’m sad to see it end, especially so quickly after starting. But I’ve enjoyed my time there, and I look forward to the new adventures that lie ahead.

Hey Brandon,

Sad to hear your contract was terminated. If you were in Belgium, I could hook you up with enough deals, but for DC I don’t really have that much information. I will have a look for it.

Anyways, best of luck there and if I can hook you up with some telecommuting gigs, I let you know instantly.

Good luck in your search. Our plans are only in a ‘let’s meet to talk about it’ stage so any realization won’t happen for months and months. If I hear of anything, I’ll drop you a note.

Brandon, sorry to hear about your job loss ;(

We at HubSpot would love to talk to you about working here. Where are you physically located now, and are you able / willing to move to the Boston, MA area?

(I put my email above for a private reply…)
