YOUR ROLE

You see the world around you having more and more computing power and connectivity. In your role as software developer you know that these massive amounts of data have technical challenges in the backend. Solutions you develop do not solely rely on vertical scaling as the amount of cores and their speed has it limits. You have engineered solutions that scale horizontally in which availability, resilience and through put go hand in hand. You do realize that bringing value and quality is essential and you do so by standing on the shoulders of industry giants. The means in your role you are capable to understand the actual core of problems and select and apply the right frameworks/tools and infrastructure. This way you deliver value and quality quickly.

You truly believe Agile/Scrum is the development methodology. By delivering features incrementally you welcome feedback from your stakeholders. To ensure quality in such an environment you write unit tests and refactor code where needed to move forward. “Red, green, refactor” is how you develop, think and ensure quality.

You are an integral part of the development team: you participate in user story writing/analysis and execution as you take your industry experience (at least 4 years) with you. A team player is who you are at heart, you get energized by working in a team and getting results as a team.

Your toolbox

You take pride on having a large toolbox. Think, but not exclusively:

  • C#, Java, Python, Scala
  • SQL or NoSQL databases like, Micosoft SQL Server, MongoDB, PostGreSQL, RIAK, HBase, Cassandra
  • Hadoop, Spark, Storm
  • AKKA, NServiceBus, RabbitMQ, SignalR, Celery
  • Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Heroku, Microsoft Azure

YOUR ROLE

In your role as DevOps you believe in rigorous automation of the whole software development and deployment cycle. You want the best environment for developers and testers and make the path to production super smooth. You hate waste and therefore strive to use all automation investments in the engineering and production environment as this also lowers risks: engineering uses the same automation as is used in production. You are a pragmatic engineer as you want to stand on the shoulders of industry giants. This means you understand and are capable of selecting the right tools/frameworks for the job. This way you deliver value and quality quickly.

You truly believe Agile/Scrum is the development methodology. In your mind continuous integration and continuous delivery are key concepts to organize an engineering department and you have all the tools in your tool box to execute this. You feel comfortable and are not religious on Windows or Linux, these are tools to automate the world around you. In your role you will be an integral part of the development team: you participate in user story writing/analysis and execution by bringing your industry experience (at least 4 years) and infrastructure perspective in the development cycle. You are able to make sure wheels are not reinvented: you care about fast and quality results. A team player is who you are at heart, you get energized by working in a team and getting results as a team.

Your toolbox

You take pride on having a large toolbox to support development and deployment. Think:

  • Amazon Web Service, Google Cloud Platform, Heroku, Microsoft Azure

YOUR ROLE

You see the world around you having more and more computing power and connectivity. The resulting distributed systems existing of multiple micro services deal with these massive amounts of data. In your role you are able to test these systems end-2-end but also on sub system level. With your industry experience you can make and steer the decisions on which level to test a feature: rely on the unit tests a developer has written or on component or even on system level. You know that a service is not only determined by its features but also by its stability, throughput and latency. Testing also these properties is default practice for you. In doing so you are aware of costs and the need to ensure quality and balance these well. You realize that bringing value and quality is essential and you do so by standing on the shoulders of industry giants. In your role you select the right tools to do your testing job. This way you deliver value and quality quickly.

You truly believe Agile/Scrum is the development methodology. By delivering features incrementally you welcome feedback from your stakeholders. As this cyclic type of development requires a lot of testing you are strong in test automation and an advocate of automation. You take on your test automation efforts just as a developer would do production code: structure well and refactor where needed.

You are an integral part of the development team: you participate in user story writing/analysis and execution as you take your industry experience (at least 4 years) with you and steer a team in taking testing into account from the start.

With your industry experience you can make and steer the decisions on which level to test a feature: rely on the unit tests a developer has written or on component or even on system level. You understand that the software you build is running in devices that are always on and potentially are constrained in resources to lower the bill-of-material. As a consequence a memory leak in such a device for example can be fatal in the field. Testing also these properties is default practice for you.
