Software Development Engineers

Software Development Engineers write the code—C, C++, C#, and other languages—that turns concepts into new technologies. We are experts in feature design and feasibility. We collaborate with program managers and test engineers to define features and ensure quality. We work in small Scrum-based product teams to shorten the time from ideas to shipping amazing code. We enjoy an environment that enables growth and performance: tools, practices, training and continued investment.

Software Development Engineers in Test “build it to break it.” We push products to their limit, making sure they perform to customer expectations and conform to the highest quality standards. In partnership with developers and program managers, and using C, C++, C#, and VB.NET, we write test cases and plan, design, develop, and maintain automation tools that isolate and debug problems.

Program Managers transform visions into elegant designs that ultimately turn into products and solutions. Or, put more simply, we anticipate what customers want and translate that into what they get. Working closely with development, test, user experience and marketing professionals, we identify requirements, set priorities, manage feature sets across product lifecycles and author technical specifications and customer scenarios.
