Sidekick Interactive is a young and dynamic company which primarily develops mobile applications (native iOSand Android solutions) for a variety of different clients. We’ve worked on innovative and demanding projects forthe City of Montreal, car2go, startups and european clients, to name a few. Our more sophisticated apps requirebackends that are built on top of Microsoft technolgies (Azure Cloud, ASP.NET MVC, C#, Web API, Azure MobileApp Services, Azure SQL, Azure Storage, etc).
We are looking for some extra help with the server side work. The ideal candidate is a full stack ASP.NETdeveloper who can handle some web front-end work, but it should be noted that most of the significant workloadwill be back-end, and so this knowledge is more of a priority. Most of the projects we are working on aretechnically challenging, so you should be comfortable with problem solving, and implementing solid softwareengineering principles.

- Model and implement databases with Entity Framework
- Develop some web front-end views for administrator web portals (to manage the mobile applications)
