    WebMD Health Services is looking for software artisans--people who can do more than make code that merely works. 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.


    In this role, you will:

    • Lead and facilitate elaboration of product requirements and define acceptance criteria with team.
    • Lead and facilitate estimation 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.
    • Review the implementation of other software developers and testers to ensure results.
    • Provide mentoring to other software developers and testers.
    • 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.
