The first thing you need to consider is whether you have a no-compete
contract with your present employer and if doing this contract work violates
that. Is this other company a direct competitor? If so, you shouldn't take
the job. If not, it probably isn't a problem.

Your company may also have specific guidelines about "extracurricular "
work. You need to investigate that as well. Personally, I would have a
discussion with the appropriate authority in your company and see how they
feel about it.
