Role description

As a Senior Product Developer you will work with product managers, architects and other developers to analyse requirements, document designs, and build solutions that contribute to the growth of the CloudSense product portfolio. Specifically, you will:

  • Take a lead role in creating applications and features that conform to best practice coding standards, make optimal use of advanced framework capabilities, and have full unit test coverage
  • Champion adoption of industry best practices, proper use of software development tooling, and adherence to CloudSense development processes
  • Work with testers to help define the approach for testing of new deliverables, and resolve in a timely fashion any issues discovered during the testing process
  • Provide product support, which includes educating colleagues in the use of new product features, as well as analysing and resolving issues reported by project teams and customers
  • Produce technical documentation as required
  • Help develop other members of the CloudSense development team through on-the-job mentoring and, as required, setting objectives and conducting the annual performance appraisal process

We work with a variety of established and evolving web technologies such as Node.js, JavaScript, TypeScript, AngularJS, HTML and CSS, and utilise powerful tools such as Docker, Git and Jenkins, to name just a few. As a Senior Product Developer in the Chennai office you will be developing application components to run on leading cloud platforms such as Heroku, Amazon Web Services and others, and may, as needs dictate, also develop components to run on the Salesforce Lightning Platform, a proprietary cloud platform that uses the Apex programming language, which is similar to Java.
