Description

Technology plays a vital role at BMO. Based on our enterprise technology vision, we lead the development and implementation of innovative and cost effective information technology strategies, multiyear investment plans, solutions and operational environments that support and enable BMO lines of business to meet defined strategies. This includes:

  • Delivering solutions on time, on budget with engineered designs, quality, costs and operational readiness.
  • Running an efficient and effective technology infrastructure and information technology operations which reduces ongoing costs and leverages common assets while delivering increased service level performance.
  • Safeguarding our environments, data, intellectual property, and operating within our risk appetite.

The Software Developer will get an understanding of the core business processes, business requirements as well as the architecture patterns and technology strategy (e.g., Transformation, SmartCore, DevOps). You will conceive and write detailed software implementations/code while ensuring that their code/configurations adhere to the security, logging, error handling, and performance standards and non-functional requirements. Through your involvement in the team, you will understand the implications of various components (including technology strategy & architecture) to the overall design of a program, system, or eco-system.

As a Software Developer at BMO, here’s what you will do:

  • You will decompose business requirements, and translate them into detailed design specifications and code.
  • You will interact with key business & technology stakeholders to define, analyze, and deliver requirements that reflect the needs of both the business and end-customers.
  • You will design solutions, write code, perform unit testing, develop documentation, and facilitate final delivery.
  • You will prepare reports, build guides and other documentation on the status, operation and maintenance of the applications.
  • You will support production issues, including independently complete root-cause analysis and diagnosis. 
  • You will aim to build solutions that are supportable, scalable and achieve our aspiration of common assets.
  • You will recommend approaches to automate, streamline, and integrate technological processes and/or systems to improve operational efficiency and effectiveness.
