Key responsibilities

We are looking for a Senior Desktop Software Developer to support Windows desktop software development, including requirements gathering, design, implementation, testing, documentation and support. This role requires a self-starter who is adept at solving problems, is a collaborative teammate and an effective communicator at all levels within an organization.

The job:

  • You will support and maintain existing desktop applications, mostly C# .NET, with some additional technologies like WPF, WCF, WebAPI, SOAP, and MSDTC.
  • Collaborate with designers, product managers, business partners and other software teams to develop new applications, user interfaces, and features.
  • Migrate legacy desktop applications to modern web platforms.
  • Participate in design sprints to help craft the next version of the user experience.
  • Make that user experience world-class by working with process engineers and software quality assurance to ensure low defect rates.
  • Integrate between enterprise systems, such as Geneva, Great Plains, BMS, and Broadridge; write, monitor, and support data transformations and flows between systems; provide first-level development support across systems.
  • Execute appropriate coding practices that align with team standards.
  • Join cybersecurity training on an as-needed basis, and help us implement what you learn from those trainings.
  • Mentor and coach teammates; be willing to learn new things, and share your experience with others.

Your experience:

We prefer you to have a 4-year degree, and have senior-level experience. To us, that means about 8 years in professional software development, with at least 5 years spent on Windows technologies. We believe you will be successful if you are capable of organizing and running projects from start to finish, while you guide and mentor other developers. You should be able to identify and complete tasks with minimal direction or supervision.

Your qualifications:

  • Be comfortable with C# or similar language (Java, C++, etc), and the Windows technology stack. Web application experience helpful, as well.
  • Understand SQL queries; Microsoft SQL Server experience advantageous, but any RDBMS knowledge will be considered. Know Git or some other version control, and have experience in an Agile environment.
  • You should demonstrate a fundamental understanding of modern platform technologies and industry standard methodologies. It is helpful to know application and data security guidelines, and ways to avoid or fix security issues.
  • Experience in financial services a plus, but not required.

Please provide public source repositories for projects you have worked on, where possible.
