We are looking for a Lead Developer to join the Developer Software Services team within our Engineering Enablement organization.

But enough about us; let’s talk about you.

You are a Developer with the experience and a passion for building tools, systems, and defining best practices to unleash the full potential of your development peers. You are an excellent communicator that is capable of both quickly picking up new technologies and passing on that knowledge to pave the way. You are a tenacious, but nimble learner, who demonstrates design & engineering excellence.

The Team: Our Developer Software Services team provides tools and services to enable athenahealth to efficiently develop, test, build, and deploy high quality software.

Job Responsibilities
• Produce and evaluate technical design specifications at the appropriate level of detail
• Understand and follow coding conventions, architectural approaches, and best practices; hold other members of your team accountable for doing so
• Collaborate with and coach team members to promote productivity and effectiveness; share business and technical insights with the broader engineering and product organization
• Develop knowledge to act as a domain expert. Take ownership of what the team builds and collaborate across the organization to ensure alignment towards business goals
• Drive team self-organization; help determine how the team functions, in collaboration with your peers

Typical Qualifications
• 5+ years of software development experience in an Agile Scrum environment; ideally in infrastructure or platform development
• Proficient in at least one modern object-oriented programming language, preferably Python
• Hands-on experience with AWS or Azure
• Working knowledge of CI/CD concepts and microservice-based architecture

About athenahealth

Our success is dependent on the diversity, collective spirit, and contributions of our people, clients and partners.
