Being a Developer @ Field Effect
We’re currently looking for Java Developers of intermediate to senior skill levels to accelerate the development of our Cyber Range and Covalence products. Developers at Field Effect work with other agile development teams to implement features in our world-class products. Both Cyber Range and Covalence teams have their own challenges that will keep any developer who loves solving complex problems engaged day after day. Field Effect encourages new ideas and as a company our motto is to remove barriers to creativity and productivity.
Intermediate developers will review the requirements of a feature or defect, determine the correct course of action and present to a senior developer for quick approval. At the intermediate level, developers work within the team but also be able to work independently without much supervision. Code should be clean, maintainable with proper tests implemented. Intermediate developers also attend demonstration sessions with sales, marketing, and support teams for feature roll-outs.
Senior developers are expected to be leads within the development organization. Clean code, maintainable and extensible implementations are a must. You will have the opportunity to architect and implement complex features, leaving your mark on our world-class software. You will be required to mentor and review the work of more junior developers as they progress to the intermediate level. You will engage with Product Owners to help them determine the best approach to releases and the road map overall.
