Developer Position Description

As a Developer, you will work in our growing technology team. A software developer at Infutor researches, analyze requirements, plans, designs, codes, tests and deploys the applications he/she works on. Once the system is in production, he/she is responsible of giving support by debugging and maintaining the system.

Key Performance Indicators for this role are:

  1. Self- management: Every piece of software developed, must be done following Agile methodologies. The developers must be self-managed, they should be able to gather requirements, then plan and estimate iterations based on it. They must also report progress and inform about any issue that shows up in a daily basis. At the end of the iteration, they should perform reviews and retrospectives for identifying what can be improved on the next one.
  2. Documentation: Every piece of software developed, must be well documented before it is coded. Documentation shouldn’t be extensive but must help the developer to plan the solution before working on it.
  3. Coding: Always apply best practices: write code that is easy to read, simple, easy to maintain, has good performance and can be extended. Code refactor whenever any of this attributes can be improved.
  4. Support: Maintain and modify existing application software based on new software release requirements. Provide system support on production issues, user and tester needs.
