  • Overview


     Senior Software developers in UL’s Information and Insights group are responsible for creating the data infrastructure that supports our rating system and business- and consumer-facing applications. They work to take feature requests and user stories from a range of different clients and translate them into a set of re-usable data management components. Developers each take substantial ownership over the features that develop, from requirements gathering, to design and implementation, to production deployment. They also collaborate closely with other developers to brainstorm about design ideas and make sure that all systems work well together. We ask they learn our proprietary software, analyze bugs and defects to improve future development/testing and work to meet our customer's demands for high configurability.

    Contribute to a Safer, More Secure, and More Sustainable World.

    At UL, we know why we come to work. Thousands of us around the world wake up every day with one common purpose – to make the world a safer, more secure, and more sustainable place to live. We clear the way for our customers to introduce the latest products, technological advances, and systems in an increasingly complex world so they can provide peace of mind to the market. Our integrity is woven throughout our company and shapes the way we approach deliver our solutions. We are proud that the work we do every day has a meaningful contribution to society. We continue to build upon our legacy of trusted expertise and partnership to keep our communities safe and secure as we march forward into the future. This helps us to sleep better at night, and we are confident that the millions of people we touch rest easier too.
