Brooksource Software Development Team – Beacon Project 

Role: Principal UI Engineer – Tech Lead

Business Objective:

Brooksource has been providing consultative services for one of our biggest Denver based clients this past year. The team will be growing its scope and presence within the organization, and as a result, we’re hiring additional team members to own feature development for one of their most critical internal applications, Beacon. 

This group will have space and equipment allocated from our client but will function autonomously as a part of Brooksource’ s consulting team.

Additional Context:

The Beacon project was an initiative launched to replace several different legacy applications currently being utilized by our client’s field technicians and call center agents in effort to streamline agent efficiency and increase technician customer experience levels. As our client works to build the Nation’s first Cloud-Native, Standalone 5G Network, the application needs to be expanded to support Wireless specific call center agents. Our team will be primarily focused on User Interface features and functionality, with a small component of our operations touching a Spring-based RESTful services layer.

Location: Downtown Denver (Union Station)

Contract Details: W-2 project employment with Brooksource. Our initial scope is set for 1 year. We will be reviewing progress with our Client quarterly, and fully expect that the engagement will be grown, and timeline extended.
