Senior Salesforce Software Engineer - Vantage

(Remote Eligible)

Position Summary

As a Software Engineer III, you will be part of an Agile Scrum team and directly contribute to the creation and maintenance of products that support our business operations. You will participate in Sprint activities, such as planning, grooming and daily standups to deliver on commitments, continuously improve process and drive positive change.

You will apply your skills in Software Development to help the team produce quality, on-time deliverables and apply root cause analysis to track down story bugs and production issues. Using an eye for quality and an attention to detail, you will help us build reliable and fault tolerant, extensible applications backed by unit testing and test automation. Additionally, you will work directly with Team Leads, Business Users, Product Owners, Functional Analysts and other Engineers to build new projects and support existing applications.

The ideal candidate will not be focused on individual components, functions, or classes, but will instead see the big picture design of how components interact through mechanisms such as REST. Working with Architects, Senior Team Members and Management, they will implement designs that build toward a strategic vision and guide Junior Team Members through task breakdown and implementation. A breadth of design patterns and development practices is necessary to build loosely coupled, extensible applications. They will be a partner to our business users and will understand the tradeoffs of different design choices as it impacts the schedule and be motivated by solving complex problems.
