  • Good technical skills with knowledge of solution design and application architecture;

KEY ACCOUNTABILITIES

  • Design and develop quality, simple software in accordance with SOLID, DRY and YAGNI principles;
  • Relentlessly focus on our user's need, driving incremental delivery of software that has the highest value and address areas of most risk in a timely manner;
  • Work closely across the multi-disciplinary team to ensure the team delivers its commitments;
