Description of Duties:

We are seeking a talented and experienced principal software developer. While the successful candidate will spend the majority of their time developing functionality as an individual contributor, this position requires an individual who has enterprise level architectural skills. The principle software developer must be able to take responsibility for the design and implementation of complex projects, both new functionality and enhancements to existing functionality. Success will require developing data and object models that correctly model clinical data and transactional clinical processes, designing and implementing functionality in a multi-tier architecture built on Spring & AngularJS technologies, maintaining required documentation, and enabling and expanding interoperation between multiple application components serving the needs of multiple organizations. The Principal Software Engineer will collaborate with clinicians and other Partners departments to create new solutions as part of building the Health Innovation Platform in clinical areas such as cardiology and pathology. Responsibilities for existing technology solutions include: enhancement of legacy systems, investigation of new bugs when they are identified; the creation, testing, and deployment of code fixes when appropriate; and the hand off of bugs to other teams as may be required. Investigation and fixes require deep knowledge of Linux, Oracle, Java EE, Javascript, JBoss, and other related technologies. Responsibilities for Health Innovation Platform solutions involve collaborating with clinical and other departments to define requirements, create specifications, develop and test software, and deploy and support solutions. Solutions should contribute to and extend the Health Innovation Platform in conjunction with our efforts to create a standard technology platform for clinical innovation within Partners. Software development efforts may be in conjunction with external vendor partners, requiring management of partner and vendor relationships in the delivery of final solutions. You will be joining a small team and therefore must be willing to play multiple roles including taking on responsibilities beyond those described above. This position specifically will involve full life cycle development and requires an individual who can work directly with end users to conceptualize, specify, code, test and deploy new cutting edge medical functionality. As such, deep technical and analytical skills are a necessity. You must be willing to take on other duties the team may need as assigned and participate in the off-hours on-call rotation. The majority of your time will be spent coding.

Required Qualifications:

• Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or related field required • 8+ years in information technology, 5+ years as a software developer • Exceptional Java programming skills • Experience implementing web-based, enterprise applications • In depth knowledge of the Spring Framework and related technologies • Experience developing across presentation, middle and backend application layers • Comfortable with Eclipse IDE, GIT, Linux, Shell and/or Perl Scripting • A combination of education and experience may be substituted for requirements
