Become one of the best Software Engineers in the world by joining the company that values software quality and craftsmanship above all else.

This unique opportunity allows you to turbo-charge your growth and learning as a developer, with a laser focus on high-quality code and automated testing. We will teach you how to meet our demanding quality standards so you can ship perfect code. It will give you a rock-solid foundation that increases your marketability and earning potential with any employer, especially US.

You will be part of a team that is working in a fast-paced environment across a large number of products. Because of our focus on quality, in our last quarter, using a weekly release cycle we pushed over 16,000 code changes across 120 products to production with less than a dozen regressions.

Join us in migrating software into cloud-native applications. We re-design, re-build and re-factor products before re-deploying them as true cloud-native applications using the full-range of services.

Work for a global company that truly values high-quality code and embodies the quality philosophy in every action we take.

What You Will Be Doing

In this role, you can look forward to a rotation through each foundational area focused on code quality:

  • Our Automated Unit Testing Team
  • Our Coding Violations Team
  • Our Maintenance Team
  • Our Automated Integration Testing Team

You will sharpen your coding skills by practicing test-driven development in our hard-to-match portfolio of cloud products.

Engineer Key Responsibilities

  • Delivery quality; implement 100% code coverage and at least 80% mutation coverage
  • Solution; find elegant solutions to solve difficult bugs
  • Become a great software developer who is incapable of poor delivery

Basic Requirements

  • You have a firm belief that you have put into personal practice: test-driven development.
  • A love for simple, clear, bullet proof-code and elegant solutions
  • An obsession with eliminating bad code; you can't help but re-factor badly written code before inserting a line of your own
  • Minimum 2 years of professional experience in one of our 4 core languages; Java, C#, C++ or Javascript
