  • Requirements Elicitation, Understanding, Analysis, & Management:  Understand the requirements/stories, and perform the appropriate gap analysis for a platform/technology.
  • Participation in Sprint Planning and Sprint Status:  Participate in sprint planning meetings by estimating the tasks to design, build, and develop test software. Attend daily huddles to report progress and barriers to progress.
  • Design/Development/Development Testing:  Create the design for a given technology that effectively meets the requirements/stories. This will involve ensuring the design integrates with other platforms/technologies. The design may be done directly in the code itself. Build and development test the software according to the functional specifications, design, maintainability, and coding and efficiency standards. Complete development tests within each sprint according to acceptance criteria and system component integration needs.
  • Testing & Debugging:  Work closely with the Solution Quality Analysts by providing debugging and testing assistance as needed to meet sprint objectives.
  • Documentation and Deployment:  Create technical documentation (assets) in the code per coding standards and assist as needed in the documentation creation for the products’ customers. Create the artifacts needed to ensure the software is migrated efficiently through the needed environment life cycles.

Other Information:

The Developer Analyst is responsible for complete design, development and development testing for software projects.  This developer may also be responsible for coaching other team members and performing quality reviews of the work of other team members. Deep technology and domain specialty knowledge is essential but learning agility and versatility to learn technology outside his/her specialty to improve delivery are also important.  The Developer Analyst should have a team-first mentality and be willing to help other team members in order to improve the delivery success.
