We have a couple thousand Mindjet Mindmanager maps with content that overlaps or is duplicated across multiple maps (you don't have to be familiar with mindjet to apply. For all it matters, a map is just a collection of text data organized in a tree hierarchy).
To make sense of this mess, we developed a tool that allows us to search, compare, de-duplicate, and merge these maps.
The tool works mostly as intended, but our (internal) users are requesting new features and we don't have enough resources in-house to complete it.
We are looking for someone to take over development of this tool, fixing its issues as we find them and implementing the new features we need.
Good experience working on legacy windows applications and solid C# and WinForms knowledge are a must.
The tool was developed by 2 devs. You'll have access to the original developer of this app, he'll be able to answer some of the technical questions you will have. For parts developed later, reverse-engineering will be required to get an understanding of how the tool works.
To be considered you must:
Be able to demonstrate that you can do this clearly through previous work examples (so we know you can actually do it right, the first time)
Be open-minded and dedicated to researching the best way of doing things (before actually doing them)
Have a flexible schedule
Be comfortable with specifications not being very detailed upfront and changing
Work on tasks in Trello, communicate through Flowdock (a chat app like Slack), and commit your code to Bitbucket (git). Accounts will be provided to you.
Sign a (pretty standard) NDA
