Job Description

Job Summary:

As Senior Software Engineer in the ICS team, you will be responsible for a suite of tools that enable automation and work flow for our business and by extension our customers.

You’ll help other teams with faster delivery of reliable, performant, and scalable software products. In addition to bringing your own software development expertise, you’ll be working with and mentoring colleagues at all levels and helping us design and deliver next-generation platforms for successful projects. You’ll be mentoring developers, working with stakeholders to understand their requirements, and helping design and build new and improved systems to ensure service security – understanding emerging API security standards and thinking about how to secure our services today and into the future.

The Project:

Document Solicitation Portal offers a highly reliable, scalable and secured document distribution & execution platform for our business team and their clients. This web application is a front-end with back-end services that provide management of the solicitation document process as well as provide a place for clients to see the current status of in-progress work with our business partners. This team / development project will be assisting in creating a common framework and tool set for all of ICS now and for the future -- helping to create a platform of software that all of ICS can leverage.

We’re a supportive, collaborative team that believes in mentoring and supporting all our colleagues. We’ve adopted lightweight agile processes that we apply to improve the way we all work together.

The Team:

We believe we can deliver excellent service and products without taking ourselves too seriously. It’s okay to find joy and  humor in our work.

  • We treat customers as collaborators rather than as tickets to be closed.

  • We value an open and transparent channel of communication with all members of the team, regardless of their title and expertise.
  • We value context and responsibility over management approval and supervision.
  • We value diversity of opinion over group consensus.
  • We value using good enough open source software over perfect commercial software.
  • We value attitude over aptitude; no genius jerks allowed.
  • We value making decisions with research and reason over tradition or fear; we are fans of the scientific method.
  • During technical discussions, no one has a title.
  • We value being able to pursue a plan together over everyone agreeing that the plan is the best one.
  • We happily teach others the things we have learned.
  • We recognize that discrimination exists throughout our society in structural ways. We seek to build systems that are  inclusive and avoid using hurtful language.
