Tom Allen's Summary

Hot Job:

Byrne Software Technologies has an immediate need for a mobile / web developer. The hired person will work in our Chesterfield office developing Android, IOS, web and Windows applications. This is a full-time, perm position working for Byrne Software, not a contract or a contract-to-hire. Excellent verbal communication skills are a must. The hired person will work with our end clients, explaining the technology, helping close a sale and then do the technical work.

Contact me: 636-534-6120 or tra@byrnesoftware.com.


Professional Summary......

I have been in the IT business for my entire career. I work for Byrne Software Technologies in Chesterfield doing technical IT recruiting, account management and sales.

I did a lot of programming and IT management for the first half of my career then moved into the IT placement and staffing business. I have been working at Byrne Software since 2006.

Byrne Software has a large internal development staff that specializes in developing web-based and Windows applications using Microsoft technologies like .net, SQL Server and SharePoint. We are often looking for additions to this internal staff of 60 people.

We also look for candidates for our clients for staff augmentation positions and perm placements (direct hires).

Byrne Software is unique in the St. Louis IT marketplace in that most of our employees work from our Chesterfield office every day. We develop applications for clients from our office and are able to staff a project from start to finish including project managers, business analysts, graphic designers, developers and testers. We are a Microsoft partner.

The average tenure of our employees is over 10 years.

If you would like to talk to an IT guy about your IT career, give me a call and we'll discuss things (discreetly). Call my office at (636) 534-6120 or use my cell at (314) 363-1185. E-mail is tra@byrnesoftware.com.

And we'll probably talk about BMWs, too.
