RESPONSIBILITIES: The primary focus of this position is coding creative, operational, front-end software that enhances our products. The Engineering Team has multiple projects that often start at the concept stage and develops new products and/or product features from scratch. Our products are constantly evolving with our client needs – we are not simply maintaining existing products.
This is a full SDLC development position. The Front-end Software Developer must be willing to take on all aspects of the development process, and be ready to support applications in production environments. He/she will be asked to test code sets, document software, and implement products and related solutions. We are currently on a release cycle and are striving towards a continuous development environment.
The Front-end Software Developer will be tasked with analyzing, identifying, and solving highly-complex issues related to software development and related technologies. As needed, this person may be involved in the mentoring of more junior-level developers on the technical aspects of our products, technology, and related software tools. This developer needs to have a willingness to do whatever it takes to make the products and the company successful.
A high degree of creativity and motivation is required of the successful candidate, who is expected to operate with limited direct supervision.
We require strong development skills in React.js with Redux front-end software development
BS in Computer Science, or equivalent experience
At least five (5) years of front-end software analysis, design, and development experience on highly-scalable web properties supporting multiple browsers
Scrum experience, knowledge, and acceptance
You must have a strong belief in writing tests for your own code – we currently write unit tests, and are creating a framework to include feature testing and integration testing
Strong experience with Design Patterns
Solid understanding of the SDLC
Experience with iterative development with quick release cycles (Agile Methodologies)
Experience with any modern testing practices (experience with TDD, BDD, and/or UI / API / Component test automation is beneficial)
Experience working with peers and Software Architects on highly complex technical issues
If working remotely, you should be able to travel occasionally to our Bend office (about 2-3 days per month is anticipated and this is expensed to NAVIS)
In addition to the above requirements, the following technical experience is considered advantageous, but is not required:
Java back-end development experience
CI / CD experience with Chef
Open ID experience
Experience with internationalization
Bend, Oregon (office), or Portland, Oregon (remote)
