What Roles Exist Within Avalon

Programmer Analyst/Consultant

Programmer Analyst/Consultants at Avalon are skilled in two distinctly different disciplines; custom development and customization of packaged solutions. However, there is one common thread to the work you'll do within each discipline --- the business needs of the client. At Avalon, you will not implement technology for technology's sake. You'll implement technology to thrill a business user (or two, or more) at our loyal clients. Avalon web site and application implementation projects are typically large and mission critical, thus requiring a strong foundation in classic software engineering lifecycle and systems integration experience. Our enterprise software package based client implementations will typically involve industry leading Portal, Web Content Management Systems, NoSQL/ Semantic, Web Analytics and eCommerce products. Our consultants are seasoned in foundational programming languages such as Java and.Net and often front-end languages and tools like HTML5, JQuery, and CSS.

MarkLogic Consultants

Avalon's Big Data Solutions practice and our Web Presence & Content Publishing Practice share a key technology partner: MarkLogic. Avalon performs MarkLogic application development services and solutions architecture for many sophisticated business solutions leveraging the MarkLogic platform and versatile XQuery programming language. On an ongoing basis, we seek solution developers and architects who are skilled in NoSQL technology, Enterprise Search, and application development who desire a role in which they are at the leading edge of solving clients' unsolvable data challenges!

Hadoop Engineers

Avalon has a growing Hadoop Center of Competency where multiple NoSQL and Big Data projects are underway and in need of talented resources versed in Hortonworks, Cloudera and MapR.

Enterprise Web Consultant

Avalon has a 10 year track record of implementing large systems (custom and package) in the Web, Search, NoSQL, and now Big Data domains. That track record has been established in part due to the superior nature of our technology consulting team. But technology alone does not make a project successful. We recognize and value to roles played by those who support the overall success of an implementation. Our clients often ask us to staff traditional implementation project roles like QA/Testing, Business Analysis, Project Management, and Ongoing Maintenance. There are many key personnel in these domains at Avalon and we continue to search for additional accomplished resources in these disciplines.
