Innovation Engineer - Mid Level

Company: USAA
Location: San Antonio
Posted on: August 17, 2019

Job Description:


Innovation Engineers are engaged in all phases of the software development lifecycle which include; gathering and analyzing user/business system requirements, responding to outages and creating application system models. Innovation Engineers primary functions are to design, develop, document, test and debug new and existing software systems and/or applications for internal use, perform defect corrections (analysis, design, code). In addition, Innovation Engineers participate in design meetings and consult with business clients to refine, test, and debug programs to meet business needs, and interact and sometimes direct third-party partners in the achievement of business and technology initiatives. This role is a solid, career-level role where functional and technical proficiency has been obtained, and incumbents display a depth of technical understanding within their respective areas of specialization allowing them to operate independently. Incumbents also display a proficiency that allows them to begin to mentor others (third party and internal resources) on procedural matters.

We are currently seeking a talented Mid Level Innovation Engineer for a remote position.

We are over 3,000 employees strong, a passionately supportive and collaborative team built on agile principles.
