Desjardins Group is the largest cooperative financial group in Canada, and one of the largest employers in the country. It offers a full range of financial products and services and is home to a wealth of expertise in property and casualty insurance, life and health insurance, wealth management, services for businesses of all sizes, securities brokerage, asset management, venture capital, and secure, leading-edge virtual access methods.
As a software application designer, you help ensure IT efficiency by analyzing, designing and updating programming algorithms (computer software, web applications, etc.) and IT tool architecture (software, networks, databases, etc.). You ensure consistency with the organization's current and future needs and structure, while also ensuring that new components are compatible with the existing architecture (software applications, products, services, etc.). More specifically, we are looking for a candidate to develop application-based solutions related to the various IT systems used by the Desjardins Shared Services Centre. You must have experience integrating solutions (e.g., Camunda) within applications. Projects are carried out in Agile mode.
You will design detailed architecture, software and testing/implementation strategies for innovative, large-scale projects. You will analyze, develop and recommend functional, organic and technological solutions and priorities. Therefore, in-depth knowledge of the technology and the ability to anticipate innovations as well as optimize work processes will be key skills. You will advise clients and practitioners on integration and coordination matters, so the ability to communicate effectively and demonstrate a thorough understanding of needs is key. Your initiatives will require extensive knowledge of your line of work.
You will be responsible for strategic projects involving a high degree of operational and conceptual complexity. These will require analysis and a comprehensive understanding of the business line and the organization. Coordination is critical, so you will interact with a large number of stakeholders from a variety of fields.
You will serve as a specialist advisor and play a leadership role for decision-making bodies and your unit.
