A day in the life of an Associate Director of Software Development

  • As an Associate Director, you will have a mix of technical and people leadership responsibilities under the overall direction of the Senior Director for the VetConnect PLUS platform. You should be as comfortable coaching and mentoring team members as you are committing code for major new features.
  • You will manage a cross functional team of Software Developers and Test Engineers - spending a portion of your time mentoring and coaching individuals to help them achieve their career goals. We view this as a key part of building and retaining a high-quality team.
  • Our team operates in a fast-moving agile manner using the Scrum framework so experience with Agile teams is a plus. You will work with a closely-knit team of developers, designers, product managers and QA testers - so excellent communication and interpersonal skills are a must.
  • The ideal candidate will have a solid technical background in customer facing software development with a strong emphasis on the full web application stack and a solid understanding of technologies from the database to the presentation tier. Using the latest technologies means you must be willing to continuously learn new things.
