Job Description

This position is highly technical. Generically equivalent to "Sales Engineering" in some other companies in software industry

* Do you enjoy rapid prototyping, creating proofs of concept to share with prospective clients?

* Does the thrill of working on and supporting diverse and unique sales opportunities interest you?

* Are you looking for a team that is just as much of a software development team as it is an extension of Sales Consulting?

* Are you interested in being part of a team that tackles complex software requirements that need to meet both local and global market demands?

The Demonstration Solutions team is responsible for delivering creative, solution-focused demonstration implementations to the Sales organization for presentation to prospects. We are currently expanding our team to dedicate more time and effort to support our sales efforts.

We place a high value on being able to contribute to a fast paced environment in a multitude of development related tasks.

The successful candidate will have 5+ years of software development experience or configuring packaged application software with an ability to grow in to a product lead position.

You must be a self-starter and able to perform with minimal supervision while working in a diverse team environment following Agile processes for software development. You must have strong technical skills, such as the ability to code in an object oriented programming language, debug complex issues, or troubleshoot environment configuration issues.

Although this is not a customer facing role it may include direct participation in sales opportunities and proofs-of-concept: designing, developing, and configuring creative and innovative solutions to prospects' requirements.


* Work directly with the Sales team to implement new features from beginning to end requirements gathering through implementation, testing, and delivery

* Own, troubleshoot & resolve defects

* Collaborate with other development organizations within the company - providing feature demos and documentation, participating in joint design sessions, etc.

* Object oriented programming fundamentals (inheritance, polymorphism, encapsulation, etc.)

* Programming experience in Java, C#, etc.

* Cloud services (AWS) and cloud native software development

* Source Control and Collaborative Development Workflow (GIT, Github, Bitbucket)

* Agile development and documentation ability

* Integration mechanisms (messaging, synchronous, asynchronous, RESTful Web services)


* Software testing and test frameworks

Bonus skills:

* AngularJS, React, Node.js, Javascript, CSS

* Automated UI Testing (Selenium, Ranorex)

* Gosu experience

* Property and Casualty Insurance Industry Experience (or even life/health)

* Micro Service Development Experience

* CI and CD frameworks (Jenkins, Team City, Gradle, Groovy)

A typical candidate has a Computer Science degree or equivalent.

The ideal candidate will share our core values: Collegiality, Integrity, and Rationality.

Collegiality - We value strong teams. We work together as professional equals. We strive to continuously improve our processes and make realistic assumptions to maintain a reasonable work-life balance. We are trusted to manage our own time. We value ideas, not titles. We welcome and consider contrary opinions.

Integrity - We insist on truthful relationships with customers, prospective customers, partners, investors, and each other in everything that we do.

Rationality - We communicate through clear arguments. We decide carefully based on factual evidence. We like calm, systematic, thoughtful solutions. We believe in testing. We never assume that we're building software the "best" way, and constantly seek to improve our processes.
