Job Description

As a Senior Software Engineer (Consultant), you are a practicing member of the team, designing, writing and testing code. You'll be competent at owning and delivering solutions and being the design authority for how features are implemented.

  • You can expect to use your knowledge of architecture; our clients will look to you for advice and contribution in higher level architectural discussions.

  • You're familiar with the development process, and take ownership for certain aspects of the process by putting appropriate methods and tools in place.

  • You will have regular conversations with clients, and be a point of contact between the client and the project team.

  • Coaching and mentoring more junior members of the team, and deputising for the team principal, will be important in the role.

  • Your involvement in shaping bids (working with a bid team) will assist to create approaches or proposals, and perhaps you may also add valuable contributions during presentations to clients in a formal selection process.

  • You'll play an active role in account management.

Qualifications

PA is a Azure Cloud Premier Partner and we create innovative solutions using the whole spectrum of Google Cloud products and services, as well as other leading cloud platforms.

One project might need you to modernize and transform a legacy application with cloud technologies and the next might see you creating an innovative new digital product through a series of agile sprints.

You probably have a core skill set, either in Java, JavaScript or Python, but it's your understanding of data structures, algorithms, libraries and development methods that are most important. You will likely have some experience developing applications on Google Cloud, perhaps using serverless technologies like App Engine and Cloud Functions, or possibly writing containerized applications for Kubernetes.
