Development is heavily focused on iterative development and incremental release of product features, using agile methods and automation (DevOps and integration testing). The ability to work in a changing, often-ambiguous environment is essential. Creativity and collaboration are foundational skills. Description This person will lead development for a platform team focused on building out REST-based entity services for next-generation service architecture. The entity services will align with the business entities, with multiple related services owned by a single platform team, along with the platform data store(s). Services are deployed to an internal cloud (Pivotal Cloud Foundry). Development is done using agile methods (scrum mostly) and modern software development tools and techniques, including continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) with GitHub, Jenkins, and Artifactory, and test automation using Cucumber and JMeter. As a lead engineer, you will work with technical managers, architects, and subject matter experts to define and refine requirements and API specifications; perform analyses of existing business services and data stores; create detailed designs; write code and unit tests; help the team achieve consistent and quality code through code reviews and code refactoring; coordinate with QA engineers to define test cases and ensure they are satisfied; assess and use external systems such as NoSQL databases; and act as a mentor to others on the team. A critical role will be to interface with technical and non-technical people in other areas to understand use cases and deliver services that meet the needs of new applications. In addition, initially the new REST-based entity services are built atop existing systems, so understanding those systems and their data models - and how that data maps to the API data models - will be crucial.
