A Day In The Life Of A Software Developer (AWS) – req12706

We’re seeking experienced software developers to help modernize our applications and solutions using the latest design patterns and technologies.  A fast-paced and outcome-focused approach will allow product teams the autonomy to own the work centered on delivering critical business and technical capabilities.

State Farm is embarking on a journey to redesign current systems and move to a modernized, cloud-based architecture. Developers in this role will assist in designing, developing, testing, and supporting new applications and solutions which utilize Amazon Web Services (AWS).

If you enjoy solving technical challenges, engineering practical solutions, exploring new technology, and operating in small, dedicated team environments, this may be the perfect position for you!

The work requires the following:

  • A creative mindset to identify and deliver solutions to accelerate time to market using a DevOps mindset.
  • Working together to uncover key product problems, identify possible solutions, gather feedback, and deliver the right solutions.
  • The desire to research, learn and apply Public Cloud offerings.
  • Designing, developing and testing new and/or existing web applications capable of leveraging a cloud infrastructure.
  • Developing scripting, automated tests, and components to support continuous integration and delivery pipelines.
  • Analyzing technical and business requirements (both functional and non-functional) to develop a systems solution that aligns with industry and enterprise best practices including user experience and accessibility.
  • Providing system software support for State Farm web applications, components and testing software (testware), and the AWS services utilized in the cloud-based architecture.
