Job Description

Lead Software Engineer

Description

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 creating the next generation of tax and accounting software. If you are a talented, results oriented and innovative 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 transform and develop many of our market leading products. You’ll have a key role working alongside a very experienced team of architects, developers 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. 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 seven 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.
