Job Description

As part of our initiative to modernize our software engineering practices, the Software Engineer will be responsible for software design, development, and quality testing for one or more scrum teams developing REST-based entity services. 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.

  • The Software Engineer will work with a platform team focused on building out REST-based entity services for company's next-generation service architecture. The entity services will align with our 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 software 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.

  • Initially the new REST-based entity services will be 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.

  • The successful candidate must be competent to work at the highest technical level of all phases of service definition and development.

Required Skills
The successful candidate will have experience and expertise in the following areas:
• Java development (at last 2 years of experience)
• REST-based services, or other Web services
• Design (APIs, data models, sequence diagrams, class diagrams)
• Automated integration tests, preferably using an external automation tool
• Relational databases, including JDBC and SQL
• NoSQL databases such as CouchDB or MongoDB would be a plus
• Accessing data on mainframes or through RPC services would be useful
• Sprint Boot and Spring Security would be plus; OAuth would be a plus also
• Cloud/VM infrastructure and technologies (PCF preferred)
• Agile methodology, using Scrum, Kanban, or similar techniques
• DevOps and continuous integration (CI) using Jenkins and Maven
• Modern IDEs like Eclipse and version control systems like GitHub
• Software Engineer part of a scrum team responsible for the design and development of services implementing REST-based APIs.
• Collaborate with other engineers on the team, including pair programming and code reviews.
• Work with QA team and developers to define and implement test strategy, and to ensure quality.
• Work with scrum master to break stories into tasks and provide estimates, and with the team to ensure the development efforts are focused and aligned with stories.
• Work with technical manager(s) and scrum master in communicating status, figuring out sprints and milestones, and aligning sprints to business needs.
• Work with contractors in delivering services.
• Work with engineers, business analysts, scrum masters, and others who are working at a remote location, or virtually.
• Debug and Diagnose urgent issues that may arise with production services.
Job Requirements
• Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or Engineering, or equivalent work experience
• 2+ years relevant experience with a Bachelor's degree or 3+ with a Masters degree, experience in the healthcare industry is a plus
