The Performance Development team is looking for a motivated Senior Software Engineer to maintain and build one of UKG's flagship offerings, Performance Reviews. The Performance Reviews product is a cornerstone of UKG's core Human Capital Management (HCM) suite of products and encompasses everything a company needs to conduct performance reviews.

You will play a key role in the development of new features and fixing critical customer issues with a keen eye for detail. You will have the opportunity to work across both web and mobile frontend interfaces, server-side architecture and data stores.

You will work side by side with other members of the engineering team (other Software Engineers and Test Engineers) and members from UX and Product Management to build the best-in-class performance reviews product in the market.

Primary/Essential Duties and Key Responsibilities:
• Lead the development of new customer features
• Mentor other software engineers on the team helping them grow their technical and non-technical knowledge
• Foster the culture of delivering quality software in a timely manner and continuously improve the development process
• Participate in customer calls with other team members to troubleshoot product issues with our customers
• Be able to identify patterns in recurring customer issues and work to resolve them permanently

As a team we believe in:
• People over process. We think that processes should make it easier for us to deliver quality products faster together. We strive to understand why processes are in place, and work to change them if they just don't work.
• Ideas over titles. We treat everyone's voice on the team equally regardless of title or seniority. We want everyone to feel comfortable contributing ideas, because we build better products when we consider multiple perspectives.
• Everyone owns all areas of the software development and delivery lifecycle. We don't like to work in silos. We believe that every person on the team owns the quality, security, delivery and stability of our product.
