The Senior Developer is a software expert who makes high-level design choices and promotes technical standards, including software coding standards, tools, and platforms.

Responsibility for designing, developing and implementing software solutions to address complex business issues, and providing technical leadership within the IT department. The Senior Developer needs to thrive in a highly collaborative workplace and actively engage in the development process.

  • Evaluate and recommend tools, technologies and processes to ensure the highest quality product platform
  • Interpret business requirements to articulate the business needs to be addressed
  • Troubleshoot code level problems quickly and efficiently

  • Define, document, and communicate it
  • Make sure that it comes out in stages in a timely way so that the overall organisation can make progress before it’s complete
  • Make sure the software and system architectures are in synchronisation
  • Act as the emissary and evangelist of the architecture
  • Make sure management understands it (to the detail necessary)
  • Make sure the right modelling is being done, to know that qualities like performance are going to be met
  • Give input as needed to issues like tool and environment selection
  • Identify and interact with stakeholders to make sure their needs are being met
