Brief Summary

Platform Software Engineer - API - MID and SR Level Platform Software Engineers create and maintain APIs for our business software applications that our members use. As a Platform Engineer, you are expected to be able to function in a fast-paced environment driving innovation through rapid prototyping and iterative development ensuring quality is built into all solutions leveraging TDD. Your responsibilities will require you to be knowledgeable in API development. You will be a part of teams of developers guiding on engineering and architecture best practices as well as demonstrate the ability to partner and engage with other engineers and architects. You will work closely with business clients and UI designers to analyze user requirements, code applications and customize and/or integrate commercial software packages for both internal employees and external member-facing applications across multiple platforms. As a Platform Engineer, it will be your responsibility to maintain code integrity and quality. PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES • With limited guidance performs defect correction (analysis, design, code) on less complex issues and/or codes applications of medium complexity. With guidance begins to install, customize and integrate commercial software packages. Works with more tenured peers to gain understanding of systems while conducting root cause analysis of issues, reviewing new and existing code and/or performing unit testing. • Works with experienced team members to conduct root cause analysis of issues, review new and existing code and/or perform unit testing. Learns to create system documentation/play books and attends requirements, design and code reviews. Receives work packages from manager and/or delegates. • Understands and assists in gathering and analyzing customer requirements and may respond to outages following the appropriate processes. • Partners with experienced team members to develop accurate estimates on work packages. May begin to identify issues that impact availability DESIRED CHARACTERISTICS Platform Software Engineers create innovative solutions that impact our members.
