The selected candidate will join a high performing agile team that uses the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) methodology to support a nationally significant and fast-paced program. Program execution follows DEVOPS best practices and employs robust development, test, and production environments. Behavior Driven Development (BDD) and test automation tools are utilized alongside a full suite of team collaboration tools. The program is focused on injecting new technology and adding advanced capabilities in support of an on-going operational system.
The Tools Integration Software Engineer will perform software development activities as a member of an agile development team. Development includes the full range of turning agile stories into implementable concepts, through development, testing and deployment of the new capabilities in this complex system. The Tools Integration Software Engineer will be responsible for creating COTS product tool workflows for the development and program management teams in setting up, tracking, and reporting on work progress across the program. This development effort enables all other development and management across the program. Following the BDD pattern our developers are responsible for implementing robust testing leveraging DEVOPS automation and use of test automation commercial tools, even applied to this tool integration effort. The selected individual will use COTS tool integration, script development, data normalization, data mapping, workflow development, and user interface (UI) development and a diverse array of structured, procedural, scripting, and declarative languages including Java, Python, Visual Basic, Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), XML, and many others.
