As a Software Engineer for AEC Solutions, you will design, develop, test and expand high-quality software programs in the Green Building Studio Software as a Service (SaaS) application and similar web applications. You will write original software code and work with cross-functional application development team to create systems and applications. You will collaborate with your fellow software engineers, product managers and subject-matter experts to design and build best-of-class sustainability software. This role will require up to 10% travel.

Principle Duties and Responsibilities:

* Primarily responsible for developing high quality, stable code for use in products and solutions for customers.
* Work with senior staff to assist in planning, authoring, documenting, and testing applications using DOE-2.2 and other energy simulation applications.

* Work with senior staff to assist in planning, authoring, documenting, and testing applications using C#, Visual Basic, VBScript, JavaScript, XML, XSLT, T-SQL, and/or HTML code.

* Manage deployment of application and database
* Ensures new code conforms to established coding standards and meets the feature specification. Ensures that code can be seamlessly localized for other languages.
* Documents engineering, interfaces, and testing specifications for new code and features developed, including changes to existing code stream. Validates that post-specification documentation (As Built) sufficiently explains the feature for Tutorials, Training Material and for QA to finalize test cases.
* Participates in peer code reviews to ensure proper documentation on features and interoperability within the entire system.
