IBM Senior Developer - IBM Cloud Garage in Washington, District Of Columbia
The IBM Cloud Garage is a new and innovative approach to developing and delivering software. We use our lean- and agile-influenced Garage Method to drive customer success on the IBM Cloud platform at an accelerated pace. We work in unique environments that are typically located within startup communities - open workspaces with modern Mac pairing stations, unconventional design, lots of techie & networking events, snacks and great coffee.
We bring clients into the Garage to collaboratively develop applications using IBM’s Design Thinking approach. This user-centered approach naturally flows into a collection of agile practices for developing the apps and scaling them in production.
We are assembling an ‘A’ team of developers, architects, designers and project managers to work together in multi-disciplinary teams. Pairing is at the core of the way we are doing development and the way we are aiding clients to drive successful outcomes. Garage developers will do pair programming, test driven development, continuous integration and deployment using modern tools. We love co-creation, fast build pipelines, making great software, solving customer problems, and learning new things. Our technical career path means even our senior developers code, and share their knowledge by pairing.
We need a Senior Developer who will:
Provide leadership and mentoring to a dynamic and diverse development team
Provide guidance on the application of the method on client projects
Practice pair programming and test driven development
Provide effort and technical scoping for customer proposals
Provide technical leadership in the delivery of development projects
