Job Description

Senior Software Developer in Test (Cloud-native Development)


More US corporations and global accounting firms rely on Thomson Reuters’ ONESOURCE software to manage their US tax compliance obligations than on any other alternative. We seek to extend this market leadership by building the next generation of tax and accounting software, specifically by breaking free from traditional constraints and exploiting the nearly limitless capacity of the cloud. If you are a talented, results oriented and creative software engineer, this might be the career opportunity you’ve been seeking.

As part of the product engineering team, you will utilize your talents and expertise to develop one of our newest (Greenfield) Tax Computation and Compliance Reporting platforms. You’ll have a key role working alongside other engineers and analysts. You have top-notch communication and interpersonal skills. Your hands will be on the keyboard, but you’ll also be involved with helping the team reach consensus on strategies, roadmaps and designs.

Key Expectations

  • Thinking in terms of computing at scale. Liberated from the traditional constraints of legacy data centers and monolithic architectures, you design and construct elastic, secure, fault-tolerant, high-performance, scalable systems, that are cloud native.
  • Agile, collaborative and flexible. We are organized around self-directed, largely autonomous Scrum teams. You work well with others, enjoy opportunities to collaborate and readily adapt as strategies evolve and priorities change.

Here are the kinds of skills we are looking for

  • Engineering Excellence. You have at least five years of experience in a variety of contexts during which you’ve contributed to the construction of secure, scalable, extensible software solutions and systems. You understand technology and possess a passion for excellence, you believe that quality is engineered from the Inside Out.
  • Bias towards action. You believe that speed and quality aren’t mutually exclusive. You’ve shown good judgment about shipping as fast as possible while still making sure that products are built in a sustainable, responsible way - and you’re comfortable making mistakes, failing quickly and safely, learning a lot along the way.
  • Passion and energy. Because you love what you do, you bring infectious enthusiasm to all your endeavors. You always perform at your absolute best and see new challenges as an opportunity to contribute, make an impact, and grow.
  • Commitment. At Thomson Reuters, commitment to customer satisfaction and technology excellence permeates everything we do. You care tremendously about delighting our users and ensuring that our market and technical leadership is sustained and extended. You are your harshest critic and hold yourself personally accountable, jumping in and taking ownership of problems that might not even be in your team’s scope.

All about you

  • More than five years of SDET experience with programming proficiency in two or more of the following - Java/J2EE, C#, Java script, HTML, Perl, Groovy, SQL
  • Four years or more specializing in test development (TDD/BDD) - Selenium, Jasmine, Protractor, Grunt/Gulp, Karma, Cucumber
  • Good understanding of n-tier application and RESTful design
  • Solid knowledge of Microservices test automation
  • Exposure to cloud native application development (AWS), including setting up performance testing environments in the cloud
