    Responsibilities

We look for people who understand the tools of their trade well enough to craft clean, clear, maintainable code. We follow Agile processes to produce quality code in a highly cooperative cross-functional team environment. Teamwork and communication are essential parts of our job every day. As a member of the Product Development group you will work side-by-side with testers, data architects, UI designers, product owners and other developers to deliver robust, highly-usable, software solutions with the scalability to serve our rapidly growing private-portal business.

    • Actively participate in the elaboration of product requirements and define acceptance criteria with team.
    • Estimate of stories and iteration planning.
    • Implement test fixtures, acceptance tests and unit tests to drive development.
    • Implement software making appropriate use of software design patterns and best practices.
    • Demonstrate shippable quality code to achieve story acceptance.
    • Make effective use of daily stand-ups, iteration planning meetings and retrospectives.
    • Perform code reviews and drive technical design decisions relevant to each project.

     

    *As a member of WebMD Health Services, you may have access to confidential information that will require you to follow additional protocols to ensure the security of our data. As a core requirement, you must implement and act in accordance with the organization’s information security policies; protect assets from unauthorized access, disclosure, modification, destruction or interference; execute security processes or activities; and report security events or potential events or other security risks to the appropriate parties within the organization.
