We are looking for an enthusiastic person who really loves technology and believes in Agile, to carry out a role of backend developer, and assist the Scrum Master in one of our teams. You will help us to design and build a new generation of tools that will transform open-access publishing. By working at Frontiers you will play a key role in shaping the future of science and academic publishing. You will be joining a thriving company where your contribution will have an immediate effect on the way science is evolving.
You will work with a team that implements solutions in Microsoft .NET and Salesforce platforms, integrate different products with Salesforce and develop other Microsoft .NET transversal applications for the business needs of the company. You will work in a small team along with other talented developers, supported by QA and Product Owner roles. The team usually works in sprints of two weeks.
As a first thing in the morning, you make sure that the daily stand-up meeting (and any other scrum ceremonies) takes place. During the meeting, you are able to identify all the possible blockers or impediments that the team might find and you coordinate with the Technical Lead on how to remove them. You make sure that everyone has everything they need to work on their tasks and keep an eye on how the workload has been distributed. You help the team with the user stories of the current sprint and by programming the tasks assigned to you as developer. In the afternoon, you attend meetings with other team’s Scrum Masters, Product Owner and stakeholders, where new projects and requirements are reviewed. You need to keep other teams informed on what your team is working on, since collaboration and knowledge sharing is a core strength of all teams at Frontiers. Time flies and it's time to head out, you are happy with the progress you made.
