Develops, creates, and modifies general computer applications software or specialized utility programs. Analyzes user needs and develops software solutions. Designs software or customizes software for client use with the aim of optimizing operational efficiency. May analyze and design databases within an application area, working individually or coordinating database development as part of a team. Modifies existing software to correct errors, allow it to adapt to new hardware, or to improve its performance. Analyzes user needs and software requirements to determine feasibility of design within time and cost constraints. Confers with systems analysts, engineers, programmers and others to design system and to obtain information on project limitations and capabilities, performance requirements and interfaces. Stores, retrieves, and manipulates data for analysis of system capabilities and requirements. Designs, develops, and modifies software systems, using scientific analysis and mathematical models to predict and measure outcome and consequences of design. The responsibilities of this role include: • Working independently with little supervision. • Making decisions that are significant in impact; errors are not readily apparent due to the complexity of work process/product or time between decisions and results; errors typically result in significant expenditure of time, resources, and funds to correct. • Using verbal and written communication skills to convey complex and/or detailed information to multiple individuals/audiences with differing knowledge levels. May require strong negotiation and influence, communication to large groups or high-level constituents. • Having a moderate amount of influence over key organizational decisions (e.g., is consulted by senior leadership to provide input on key decisions). • Completing tasks that require multiple steps that can be performed in various orders; tasks require simultaneously executing multiple cognitive abilities and maintaining information in short- or long-term memory. • Exercising exceptional creativity to innovate new ideas and develop innovative products/processes without established objectives or known parameters. • Using deductive and inductive problem solving; multiple approaches may be taken/necessary to solve the problem; often information is missing or conflicting; advanced data analysis and interpretation skills are required. • Occasionally participates in strategic planning within own area affecting immediate operations. The responsibilities of this role do not include: • Financial accountability (e.g., does not involve budgeting responsibility). Principal Duties & Responsibilities • Gathers, integrates, and interprets information across sub-systems from a variety of sources in order to troubleshoot issues and find solutions. • Serves as a technical expert within area of focus. • Identifies gaps in design, effort, etc., and closes the gaps. • Identifies risks associated with designs, approaches, and other work efforts. • Collaborates with others inside and outside of project team to accomplish project objectives. • Solves complex technical problems that affect significant areas of product. • Makes decisions based on incomplete, contradictory, and ambiguous requirements and information that affect policies and multiple teams in the software development process. • Manages project priorities, deadlines, and deliverables for larger projects. • Acts as a tech lead on projects and owns the outcome of the project. • Leads others with technical credibility.
