Sr. Developer SciQuest
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Overview:
SciQuest is looking for a senior level developer to be on one of our Product Development Teams (PDTs) that develop our procurement applications. Our PDT?s use agile software development principles to build great products that serve the needs of our customer base? gathering and reviewing user requirements, database and application design, coding, testing, installation and maintenance, internal and external customer training and product rollout.
The developers on the team contribute primarily through programming expertise, but are expected to be an integral part of all team activities. Additionally, developers are expected to work with other Product Development Teams (working on the same product) to ensure continuity of architecture and design.
As a Senior Developer, you will contribute not only by the creation of software, but by sharing your experience with less senior members of the department through design mentoring, development of software components and informal code reviews.
You are going to be an important participant in user story creation and sprint planning activities.
You will design, code, test and debug software during our agile, sprint based releases ? using documented user stories and close team communication as a guide.
We expect that you will use ?good coding hygiene? (e. g., solid unit testing practices, object oriented design, responsible refactoring, etc.) to ensure that you are building good quality software.
You will be a critical participant in defining and implementing technical direction for your team?s projects. As well, we expect you to help other teams as they work through technical challenges.
We want you to lead the team toward crafting new user experiences that exceed customer expectations
We are going to ask you to review the code of newer/less experienced team members.
It will be important for you to serve as a mentor for other developers
Based on your experience, we want you to suggest areas for improvement in internal processes along with possible solutions.
You will contribute new frameworks to our library of development components.
We hope that you will participate in Usability Studies with our customers.
Sometimes, we?ll need you to troubleshoot and maintain production code (but you are going to really appreciate the Production Support Development team for handling the day to day fires that pop up).
Excitement for learning and for building software as part of a focused team
Excellent communication, organization and interpersonal skills
Knowledge of XML, JSON and other web programming technologies would be even better
Strong working knowledge of relational databases, database design and SQL
Experience building web-based applications is crucial (even if it?s not with our technologies)
At least 7+ years professional experience developing software is desired
Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or equivalent is preferred
