Application Development Manager

| Greater NYC Area
SUMMARY

We are building ADP’s next big business and have the agility of a startup with the resources of a fortune 500, which you can leverage and grow based on our compelling applications and vision that you will help define and execute.

Our industry is changing and so is how we build applications. Together with Lifion’s leadership team, you will have the ability to shape your role and your team; the opportunity for growth is only limited by your ability to execute and drive results.

As an Application Development Manager, you are going to lead one or more teams building applications on top of our state-of-the-art platform, as well as influence the future direction of the platform. It is a cross-functional mix of Business Analysis, Development Management, Product and UX with people leadership and technology curiosity at its core.

YOU SHOULD JOIN IF YOU ARE:
  • High velocity and hands-on:
    The type of person who can’t sit still and instantly goes after the next idea or opportunity, brings it to the team or does it themselves, as long as it gets done quickly and with high quality.
  • Love getting product to market more than any specific technology:
    We use the Lifion platform to build applications (think rules-engine on steroids), which allows us to create applications with extreme pace and limited code, but also comes with some limitations that we can improve by coordinating with the platform teams. 

  • An energizer & people leader:
    We are a fast growing team and are looking for leaders who will help us energize and lead--not from authority, but with inspiration and knowledge.

  • A product delivery leader and strong problem solver:
    We are building applications while developing our next-gen platform. We are basing the way we architect and build applications on CS fundamentals, but are innovating to continue to accelerate and allow for federated development across the globe.

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Design and oversee development of HCM applications your team is responsible for
  • Ensure applications built are stable and scalable
  • Conduct design reviews with team and ensure best practices are adhered to
  • Coordinate with teams across the entire program to ensure alignment with developers’ needs
  • Mentor and train application developers
  • Act as a focal point for best practices
  • Collaborate with UX and Product on cross functional teams
  • Gather and present requirements for new features
  • Identify Risks and break down barriers to development progress
  • Conduct regular team health checks and present progress to stakeholders
  • Conduct Performance Reviews and ensure honesty and fairness
  • Be able to drive best practices and foster partnerships with other teams

REQUIRED EXPERIENCE

  • 10+ years of experience with full cycle application development (Full SDLC experience: architecture, design, development, delivery, etc.)
  • Experience managing at least one product development team
  • Strong CS and product development fundamentals (design patterns, database schema design, data modeling, API design and considerations, design by promise, quality concepts including TDD & BDD approaches)
  • Experience in an iterative, Agile environment
  • Cross-functional familiarity with Product Management and UX
  • Hands on experience with modern JavaScript (I,e, node, react, redux) is preferred

An Insider's view of Lifion by ADP

What are some social events your company does?

There are lots of events constantly going on at Lifion! From meetups to tech talks to our weekly Thursday happy hours, there's a good mix of work and play. We also do outings: in my one year of working here we’ve done laser tag, Barcade, happy hour on a boat, the vessel, a picnic in central park, escape the room, VR world, and more.

Application Developer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The People Ops Team is in full swing for FY19 Performance Reviews. It's an exciting time for the business, but requires a lot of backend work & support for our associates. We're drafting communications and timelines for management & associates, and creating the right process to gather ratings and self-assessments for a great associate experience.

Quinton

Director, People Operations

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I have been able to work with many different teams since I started here and have grown tremendously. I have worked with new product teams, Reliability teams and now work with Security and Compliance teams. This experience has enriched my technical and product knowledge, and I get to be part of the teams which are solving complex business problems.

Gargi

Technical Program Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Creativity is best fueled by collaboration, and has two simple ingredients: First, you hire passionate & talented people, people who care about users and who want to solve meaningful complex problems. Then, you support a culture of openness, with every designer constantly sharing their best ideas across the whole org. That's how creativity thrives!

Chris

Head of UX

What makes someone successful on your team?

Success on our team is enjoying ownership over our work while staying open to suggestions. We have an open-door policy to share knowledge with one another, strengthening us individually and as a team. We check our egos at the door and are lucky enough to be surrounded by people who feel like family more than coworkers.
