Where you fit

The developer will transform and implement business requirements into high-quality software solutions that will be deployed in the Shell Upstream business. As part of a development (scrum) team, the developer will be collaborating with other Developers, Product Owners, Architects, UX and QA staff to realize elements or subsystems to meet this requirement. The developer will take part in highly collaborative sessions where a requirement is analyzed and broken down into a set of tasks that will need to be accomplished and addressed incrementally in a series of development iterations or sprints. Acceptance criteria will be defined upfront while analyzing the user requirements together with the team. The developer will verify and validate the developed code against these acceptance criteria. Only when those criteria are met, and acceptance tests pass the work is considered completed.

What's the role?

As a Senior Software Developer, you are expected to apply state-of-the-art, object-oriented coding practices where every unit is covered by a unit test. Also, you will review the work of colleagues. You will use appropriate IT tooling to manage the work on a daily basis.

In addition, you will function within a small product scrum team (5-7 staff). The Product Owner of the team will maintain the interface with the business stakeholders and will make sure team priorities are aligned with business priorities and strategies. The team will have daily stand-up sessions where the developer will update on progress and will indicate impediments to further progress of the work.

As the developer will participate in software modelling sessions, together with Solution Architects and Subject-Matter Experts to analyze the business domain aspects of the end solution and discover the work that needs to be done in each of the architecture components or tiers.
