Geneca is hiring!

We are looking to hire new senior developers between now and the end of February!

For those of you who don't know who we are, Geneca is a custom software product firm; we build products used to service customers. That focus means we invent software and it is critical that it be different than other products. This means you will be working on new software and evolving existing, not just supporting things others have built.

Please email all of your referrals or questions to referral@geneca.com.
