The primary responsibility of the IT Application Developer is to design, develop, maintain and administer transactional and analytical data structures or medium complexity software code which translates business requirements into technology terms. Specifically, IT Application Developers develop less complex algorithms and programming code for software solutions according to the required specifications. They take responsibility for the production of solutions in line with business requirements and specifications.

What you’ll be doing

IT Application Developers work closely with the Business Analysts and receive detailed business / user requirement specifications that identify the goal of the program and use this to assist with the preparation of a functional requirements document, including context and system flowcharts that diagrammatically show how the information will flow through the computer and its peripheral or related equipment. They analyse the business requirements and ensure that the designed solution meets these requirements. He/she meets with internal clients, Business Analyst and/or designers to understand the project scope before writing the code.

IT Application Developers are responsible for writing step-by-step instructions that direct computers to process information and are required to work on a wide range of projects with medium complexity. They design the logic that delivers the computing system functionality. They take responsibility for documenting the code that he/she has written into a process that enables application use and security. These individuals transform the detailed requirements into a complete, detailed systems design document which focuses on how to deliver the required functionality.

The IT Application Developer converts a design into a complete information system including acquiring and installing the systems environment, creating and testing databases, preparing test case procedures, preparing test files, coding, compiling, refining programs and performing test readiness review and procurement activities.

Integration and Testing
Once the application has been designed, the IT Application Developer tests the program prior to its deployment and release. If the test does not deliver the required results, the IT Application Developer examines the program errors in logic and data and makes the necessary corrections and if required, escalates the problem to the Senior IT Application Developer. In so doing, they perform debugging and data resolution activities.

The IT Application Developer works with the Senior IT Application Developer and technical teams to assist with the installation and deployment of the application. This includes implementation preparation, implementation of the solution into a production environment and resolution of any problems identified in the integration and test phases.

IT Application Developers are required to write and distribute the task descriptions in a production environment to operate and maintain the solution they have designed and implemented. This includes post implementation and in process reviews.

Behavioural skills
IT Application Developers have good knowledge on software design and the software development life cycle (SDLC). They take holistic views of such software application environments including hardware platforms, applications, databases, operating systems and storage. They use client requirements to advise on the design, deployment and operation of applications.

IT Application Developers are able to work with abstract concepts and have sound problem solving and analytical skills.
