RPA Tools is growing so fast and we need an integral member of the team to take on the task to scale operations to Phase II. You will be the first hire and will work directly with the Co-Founder & CEO. If you want to help startups and small businesses completely change their operations, culture, and be apart of a movement that is much bigger than RPA Tools or any individual company, then this is your chance to make your mark on an organization in the most exciting space (and time) we may ever experience! Application Management Among the most robust responsibilities of an application developer is application management. As the name implies, a soft skill that application developers must present is an organized ability to manage the application lifecycle, and people involved in the process, to ensure smooth deployment and post-deployment modifications.
Understanding the Application Deployment Lifecycle The application deployment lifecycle typically involves the following key stages: Initial Planning > Design > Development > Testing > Deployment > Support.
In each phase, an application developer is required to have specific knowledge and abilities to propel the phase into completion. These include activities around collaboration and project management. More specifically:
Planning and Design – This stage requires specific input from both a project management and collaborative perspective. On the side of project management, the application developer must gather requirements that are based on the analysis of empirical data. For instance, the application developer should have access to end-user data that suggests what kind of issues the software sets out to solve. Armed with this information, they should have the analytical soft skills to deduce requirements. On the side of communication and collaboration is program design. This refers to building the architecture of the software and is generally spearheaded by the developer though he or she must incorporate input from other key stakeholders on the team. Development and Testing – This is where the fun begins! Based on the design requirements gathered in the previous step, the developers will begin the iterative steps of coding, testing and revising. As a leader in communication, the software developer must also work collaboratively with a panel of end-users to ensure quality assurance. Development and testing are the longest phases in the lifecycle. Deployment and Support – When the project is complete and tested, it will be deployed. At this point, the software developer has completed the major phases of the lifecycle, and the project management focus shifts to customer support. At the same time, the developer must collaborate with other senior members of the IT department to assure asset management line items are being completed.
