Dear Mr. Hiring Manager:
I am very interested in joining your software development firm as lead software developer. During my online research, I was drawn to your need for a senior software developer and feel my technical expertise and project management background qualifies me for the position. For your review, I have attached my resume for your consideration.
In my current position as senior software developer with Tech-Roads, a leading developer of applications for small to mid sized businesses, I am well versed in full lifecycle development and software design and architecture. The scope of my extensive technical proficiencies and project highlights are outlined in my attached resume.
My strengths combine the methodical planning, development, and management of out-of-the-box applications that are customizable to meet clients’ unique business needs. Through team leadership, I have successful developed robust software that has been sold as full product and add on modules, and has generated strong revenue gains for Tech-Roads.
Earlier experience includes twelve years with Silver Threads, a completive microchip manufacturer that was acquired by X3X, resulting in the redundancy of my position unless I accept the company’s offer to relocate to Europe where the company was headquartered.
My areas of expertise combine technical and client management acumen. Possessing a background in programming, I am expert in conducing object-oriented design across multiple platforms, performing business analysis, implementing requirements, and leading the project lifecycle, from information gathering and development to execution.
I am relocating to the Valley this spring, and would like to explore your interest in my candidacy. My employer is well aware of my search and is willing to provide me with an outstanding reference.
If you feel there is a mutual interest, I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your company, the requirements of the position, and how my qualifications would be a good fit.
Please note that I am willing to fly down to interview at my own expense. For your convenience, I can be reached directly at 555-555-5555.
Thank in advance for your time. I hope to speak with you soon.
