NAVIS is looking for a creative, motivated, Senior Software Developer to join us as a critical member of our Engineering Team. This position will be based at our new, shared office space situated in the heart of downtown Portland.  

NAVIS is in the Hospitality Technology industry and we have an amazing CRM suite of products and related services that we are evolving and constantly improving.  We need sharp minds to add to our growing Engineering team! 

The primary focus of this position is coding creative, operational software that enhances our products.  The Engineering Team has multiple projects that often start at the concept stage and develops new products and/or product features from scratch.  Our products are constantly evolving with our client needs – we are not simply maintaining existing products.

This is a full SDLC development position.  The Software Developer must be willing to take on all aspects of the development process, and be ready to support applications in production environments. He/she will be asked to test code sets, document software, and implement products and related solutions.  Expert knowledge of design patterns and software development best practices must be shown at all times.  

The Software Developer will be tasked with analyzing, identifying, and solving highly-complex issues related to software development and related technologies.  As needed, this person may be involved in the mentoring of more junior-level developers on the technical aspects of our products, technology, and related software tools.  This developer needs to have a willingness to do whatever it takes to make the products and the company successful.
