Job Summary

Seeking full stack engineer developers that know how to turn intentions into URLs.

Characteristics and best practices for team members in this role:

  • Realize that a solution can’t be all things to all audiences, able to identify solutions that appeal to the largest audience.
  • Conceal the complexity of the implementation details and make the solution adaptable to change the backend for future needs.
  • Remove the need to re-implement filtering, sorting and paging in the UI.
  • Do not let the complexity bleed through to the consumers of your solution.
  • Through well thought-out documentation give the consuming developer all the tools they will require to consume the solution quickly. Provide multiple examples. Describe the fields in terms the consuming developer can understand quickly.
  • Provide a quick start guide which doesn’t take long for the consuming developer to start seeing results. Start with simple concepts then work your way up to the full featured example. Read your documentation and follow it like a consuming developer would. Find your flaws before your audience does.
  • Provide fully functional working code as examples in multiple languages to facilitate the learning curve. Provide cURL examples developers can use to get to know and adapt to your solution. Show off the solution functionality with a cURL example for every use case your solution supports.
  • Be consistent across solution implementation. Don’t make consuming developers struggle as they move from one solution to another. Use a simple approach that is repeatable and predictable. Use the same language throughout the implementation and the documentation. Don’t switch terms and make the consumer wonder if you are talking about something different when you are not.
  • Pay close attention to performance. When you see the potential for poor performance, point it out and ask for architectural review before developing poor performing code. Remember you are developing your solution only once, but it will be executed millions of times. There are exceptions to every rule but in general all solutions should execute in less than a second.
  • Take the time to write readable error messages. Take context into consideration when formatting errors. Anticipate Splunk queries such that errors can be quickly correlated across boundaries to reduce the time it takes to identify root cause. Your solution should be quick to point out the needle in the haystack.
  • Self-motivated team member with an ability to learn new tools and technologies
