Position

The mission of an Application Engineer is to partner with customers to design and document all or parts of a mobile and/or desktop solution and then iteratively build, test, deliver, and support solutions using the DevonWay technology stack and industry-standard tools such as SSRS and SQL.

The main deliverable from an Application Engineer is a high-quality, reliable, and easy-to-use application that meets the customer’s needs. By using the DevonWay platform, applications can be built without having knowledge of specific programming languages like Java. Application configuration, however, does require advanced technical skills. Depending on the size and scope of the project, the Application Engineer may also fill the role of Project Manager. All Application Engineers also assist in providing technical support to existing customers.
