You get to do all that in a company that rocks the benefit protocols better than any other.

  • Assist in the definition of product requirements and for the creation of high-level architectural specifications, ensuring feasibility, functionality, and integration with existing systems and services;  
  • Lead the definition and documentation of development best practices, processes, and methodologies; (Not just a map, a dictionary too!) 
  • Creatscalable, maintainable designs that support loosely coupled enterprise components and foster reuse of software; (Software Recycling is a thing.) 
  • Making high-level design choices and dictating technical standards, including software coding standards, tools, and platforms; (The choice is yours, choose wisely.) 
  • Creating, defining, and choosing application frameworks for new applications; (In this multiple choice you don’t get the “all of the above” option.) 
  • Identifying paths from existing to future software architectures; (We told you... you shall be a map. Please include transit in your path finding.) 
  • Balancing the creation of value with the management of risk through design; (Kind of like Design Yoga.) 
  • Leading efforts in identifying and prototyping with emerging technologies; 
  • Cultivating and disseminating knowledge of application development best practices; (You reap what you sow.) 
  • Taking an active role in cross‐departmental projects when needed; 
  • Training, managing, and providing guidance to junior development staff; (Like Obi Wan, you must teach Anakin, even if he becomes someone else.) 
  • Researching, investigating, and staying at the forefront of technology (Software Development, SaaS, IaaS, Programming Languages, SDLC, etc.); (Because it’s constantly changing and someone needs to keep up.) 
  • Directing research on emerging applications’ software development products, languages, and standards in support of procurement and development efforts;

That something extra we´d love to see…  

  1.  Detailed: You notice everything, every little thing; and you rarely forget any of it. Your attention to detail borders on photographic and your spirit animal is a hawk. If anything changes, you notice. 
  2. Negotiator: Your communication and negotiation tactics are sharp. You’re the type of person that can talk their way out of anything. The FBI calls YOU when they need a negotiator. You have a certain aplomb that can take control of a situation and make decisions. 
  3. Persuasive: Did you take hypnotism courses or something? Because you seem to sway things in your favor with ease. Your charm convinces anyone of anything. No need to insist, you’re hired! 
  4. Focused: You’re that little wheel on the lens that keeps everything in focus. Distraction? That’s not a word you know. Your goal is your everything and you don’t stop until you get there. Racehorses envy you because you need no blinkers to stay on track. 
  5. Problem Solver: Let’s just admit you like problems, but not because you’re some sort of drama nerd, you just love SOLVING problems. Sudoku and Crossword puzzle books abound in your bookshelf.  
  6. Organization Guru: You crave organization like sugar, color-code everything, and messes make you crazy. Marie Kondo learned everything from you. You’re that little elf that organizes other people’s desks at night.
