Mintel is looking for a talented Junior Software Developer to join our established IT team in Chicago. This individual will be redeveloping marketing intelligence websites that are used by most of the largest CPG companies and financial services institutions in the US and Canada, as well as the data entry and quality assurance systems which power them.
What You Will Be Doing:
Join a diverse, high-functioning agile team
Participate in planning activities with the Product Owner and other stakeholders
Develop features for our client-facing website, data entry software, and big data processing platform
Demo software to stakeholders and record their feedback
Participate in testing and other quality assurance activities
Manage the deployment of new features to beta and live environments
Influence the direction of your team through continuous improvement activities
Gain exposure to our full software stack, using primarily Open-Source software
Take part in intensive pairing activities to get you up to speed quickly with our technology stack
Who We Are Looking For:
Naturally Curious: You are naturally curious, looking for new opportunities to learn and adapt to the variety of technologies and frameworks our systems use.
Tech-Savvy: You are well-versed in web technology and applications, bringing a highly skilled approach to your day-to-day, constantly learning about what is new or next, and sharing learnings with the team. You ideally have more of a back-end focus in development but will be full-stack.
A Collaborator: You develop and encourage internal relationships, with technical and non-technical colleagues alike. You seek out opportunities to collaborate with peers in your department and in an agile software development process.
Committed to Personal Growth: You are committed to continuous learning and growth, pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone to develop your skill set.
Self-Directed: You are confident and driven on your projects. You have an aptitude for identifying and solving problems, both technical and organizational, and clearly outlining plans and risks for your work.
Mintel does not offer sponsorship for this particular role, and so at this time, we are only able to consider candidates who do not have limitations in their ability to work in the United states long-term.
