Prototyping and technology evaluation is a huge part of what we do. This position is for generalists in innovation and mobile software design.

The Mobile Application Developer will create and develop software to inspire new products and services, demonstrate the feasibility of emerging technologies, help determine product requirements through iteration and experiment, and de-risk critical technology implementations before formal programs begin. 
Tasks include software design, debugging, platform and framework evaluation, and coordination with outside developers and solution providers. The ability to work with cross-functional teams and communicate technically in such an environment is critical. The role will interface with multiple departments including Business Units, Engineering, Information Technology, Marketing, User Experience, and Customer Service.
  • Work with product owners and stakeholders to understand user stories and functional requirements, and reduce requirements to designs and specifications.
  • Provide effort and time estimates for mobile application development

  • Design and Develop working Mobile Applications using native platform languages and latest frameworks.
  • Work to analyze, debug, and resolve defects in applications.
  • Demo, gather feedback and test data for the application.
  • In some cases, work will be in a more formal Agile environment. This includes working from a backlog, towards sprint demos, resolving bugs per QA, and updating bug tracking system per workflow guidelines.
  • Coordinate activities with outside developers.
  • Stay up to date with the latest Android OS trends and frameworks. Be able to report out to less technical team members on pros/cons of various technologies and implementations.
