Job Description

Manager, Software 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 constantly seek to extend our market leadership by building the next generation of tax and accounting software. If you are a talented, results oriented and creative software development leader, this might be the career opportunity you’ve been seeking.

You’ll have a key role leading teams, and working alongside other managers, engineers, architects and analysts. You have top-notch communication and interpersonal skills. While you are a passionate technologist and software engineer, you also enjoyed mentoring and helping teams 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 ten 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

  • You have a solid understanding of SDLC, and a strong proponent of Agile/Lean software development methodology.
  • Flair for facilitating culture changes, building efficiencies, and emphasizing time to market, transparency, and risk management.
  • Fluent in managing, negotiating and forecasting scope of work with partners and stakeholders.
  • More than five years of development experience in Java-based web applications, using Spring Boot, Spring Cloud frameworks
  • About three years experience in development of scalable, reliable and highly available cloud native services and APIs using microservices architecture patterns, and REST principles.
  • Strong skills in team tools - JIRA, TFS, Git, Bamboo
  • Experience leading full stack development of cloud native solutions that run on AWS cloud infrastructure - RDS/PostgreSQL, NoSQL, Messaging services (SQS, SNS), AMI, Docker
  • Exposure to front-end application development using Angular JS, HTML5, CSS3.
  • Promote Quality culture - TDD/BDD, code scans, security scans and governance.
  • Good experience with CI/CD/DevOps processes and tools - worked in an environment where releasable code is delivered every two-to-four weeks.
  • Partner with business to develop and maintain a well-groomed product backlog.
  • Work with architects and other technologists to determine technical design, and effectively communicate the design to others in the team.
  • Drive innovation through rapid prototyping and iterative development.


Bachelors or Masters Degree in Computer Science or closely related discipline; or equivalent combination of education and experience.
