Cloud Technology Lead Developer (2000770) – Southfield, MI or Whitehouse, OH

Where the Chemistry Happens

We are seeking a professional like you to create cloud-based applications used by our customers to generate revenue for BASF in Southfield, MI or Whitehouse, OH. While other projects may be diverse and forthcoming, the current product is designed to allow body shops, partners, and distributors in dozens of countries and speaking dozens of languages, a system to search for formulas and mix the paint used to paint cars. This involves high-tech IoT devices such as Spectrophotometers, Digitally Connected Scales, and Label Printers. This core solution is a key part of the digital strategy within BASF Automotive Refinish Coatings and will continue to evolve and improve with future advancements. This solution is globally used, and thus, requires a “global mindset and approach” throughout the development process. The expectation is for the role to act as a steward for BASF with a focus on customer centric solutions.

In this role, you will be a Senior Full Stack Developer (Front End Angular 7 and Backend C#) tasked to develop custom solutions within an existing application framework. You will demonstrate your ability to code, test, document and deploy, while working both independently as well as within a team (with the ability to communicate effectively a must). You can expect a higher workload than a Junior/Senior Developer, while also leading and coaching other developer resources to amplify the team’s future production capabilities. Though full stack, this role requires a reasonable amount of Angular 7 Development (NOT ANGULAR JS).

Formula for Success

  • Leveraging your education in Information Technology, Computer Science, Software Engineering, or other Engineering discipline and your development expertise that includes Angular 2 and C# to write quality code, you will serve as a Senior Full Stack Developer utilizing front-end Angular 7 and Backend C# to develop custom solutions within an existing application framework.

  • Demonstrating your experience in Cloud Computing (Microsoft Azure,, Amazon Web Services) and application development & testing tools, along with current working knowledge of modern and recent testing tools, you will architect Cloud Based Solutions for Developers to create, develop, and improve business critical solutions in Microsoft Azure.

  • Your robust problem-solving skills will be essential as you debug, test and correct code issues.

  • Operating in a strict Agile Scrum environment (not Waterfall with Sprints), you will complete the workload of a Full-Stack Senior Developer.

  • Relying on your strong analytical education and training, you will create robust applications and services that improve business processes.

  • Your experience as a developer will be essential as you migrate code between environments and ensure up-time, security and functionality and as you design and evaluate best practices & coding standards.

  • Exhibiting independent thinking, you will demonstrate your ability to code, test, document and deploy.

  • Working successfully in a team environment with your effective communication skills, you will train, coach, and enhance the skills of New College hires, Junior Developers and those with less demonstrated skill than your own and be open to completing other tasks and duties as assigned.

  • Your focus on continuous learning will serve you well as you lead and develop skills in technology, data architecture, and management.
