Located in the heart of the Dublin Docklands in a connected, state-of-the-art workspace designed for creativity, collaboration and fun.

About Advanced Applications Engineering:

We are Agile:

We strive to create and maintain a culture that embraces Agile values and principles. We believe that by enabling self-organising teams with the right tools and processes and by leveraging industry and user feedback, we can respond quickly and learn as we go. This is the right way to uncover the best solutions for The Dock, for our Clients, and for Society.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a Specialist to join our growing Advanced Applications Engineering Group within Software Engineering and the wider Dock organisation.

You are someone with strong independent logical thinking and broad technical knowledge on designing UX, creating core functional logic components, APIs, complex data and application integration.

The successful candidate is expected to have deep practical knowledge of engineering modern applications and is expected to bring Thought Leadership and Best Practice ideals.

You will:
Work within innovation teams to define, create and maintain best practices and technical roadmaps;

Participate in engagements with clients and stakeholders to understand their requirements by attending progress updates, bi weekly calls/meetings;

Work with architects to analyse and design complex integrated technical solutions, services and components;
