Senior Application Developer

Job Description

Aon Is Looking for a Senior Application Developer

The world’s most awarded talent assessment business practice is building a platform to transform the industry landscape.  Leveraging AI, neuroscience and psychometric capabilities - this platform is positioned to lead the industry and find new and powerful methods of matching our clients with candidates lined up for success.

  • The team is agile and co-located in NYC (scrum, agile, FDD)
  • The technologies are cutting edge: Microservices, AI/ML, Angular mdb framework, SASS, Node, SVGs
  • The environment is best in class: cloud architecture, automated deployments, adobe CC, InvisionApp, git flow, VS Code

We are looking for Experienced Developers to join our team.   We are Aon’s Assessment Technology team- providing the tools and platforms for our team and our clients.


What does “assessment solutions?” mean?   To put is simply: people need jobs.  Companies need employees.   When someone finds just the right job, at just the right time - it can feel amazing.  And last year we helped 33 million people try to get that feeling.   We aim to match them to the job that fits. 

We mix neuroscience, Industrial Organizational Psychology, algorithms, complex visualizations, games (or are they games?), some AI and a lot of data to find the best fit for the best role. Know what this does?  Gets happy employees, reduces all types of workplace discrimination and lets someone spend their workday doing something potentially awesome.

Do something interesting.  


What’s the ask? 

We are building the next generation platform that will allow us to do more, better, faster and even hire (pun intentionally left in, after many requests to remove).

We are looking for Senior Developers to join our team.   We are not your typical enterprise shop.   Our technology, design, architecture, tools and processes are modern, and we are focused on best practices.  The team feels like a start-up (freedom, huge problems to solve, independence) but with the stability associated with a Fortune 500 company. 

Perhaps you are tired of being a part of a huge program, just another cog in the machine?   Maybe you are tired of working with that guy?  You know.   THAT guy. Well, he’s not here. We have cool tech.    A nice office.   Great location.   And your work?   It’s not cog work.   Come help us develop and deliver a world class solution.  It’ll be fun.

If most of the worlds below describe you, apply.  Take an Assessment.  Find out if you fit us, and if we fit you.
