  • Solve complex problems in an ever-changing environment, with a focus on process optimization, data, & technology.
  • Foster strong relationships with your colleagues and clients based on a culture of collaboration and service.
  • Operate in a fast-paced, high-intensity environment and work as part of a global team.
You have:
  • 1-3+ years hands-on experience developing complex enterprise software systems.
  • BA/BS in Computer Science from an accredited university
  • Good analytical, problem-solving and communication skills
  • An ability to translate real business problems into technical solutions
  • A track record of forging strong relationships and building trusted partnerships through open dialogue and continuous delivery
  • Knowledge and experience with software development best-practices including test driven development (TDD), unit testing discipline, agile development and CI/CD strategies.
  • Strong OO skills and design patterns knowledge and implementation experience using one or more object-oriented languages (e.g. Java, C/C++, Python)
  • Solid knowledge and experience developing and working with relational databases (e.g. MySQL, Oracle, Sybase)
