Job Description for Application Development Consultant

Application development consultants lead a project from start to finish, which often includes conceptualization, road mapping, RFP creation, and application design and development. They must be able to keep within scopes of work in regard to product timeline and budgeting throughout this process. Application development consultants are also responsible for overall quality and support of applications, including troubleshooting, achieving objectives, using strong critical thinking skills to sole complex issues, and anticipating future client needs.

Qualified application development consultants have a fundamental understanding of many areas of the information technology industry. Typically working across multiple facets of an organization, they often work in a hybrid role of project manager, systems architect, business analyst and developer. Application development consultants need strong interpersonal abilities to effectively communicate and lead development teams, often serving as a mentor for junior team members. Consultants also need the ability to converse about projects, often in a non-technical capacity, directly with clients, as well as other organization team members.

Application development consultants typically need substantial relevant experience (generally eight to 10 years), as well as at least a bachelor's degree in computer science or a related field. They must demonstrate a full comprehension of development languages such as C++, Ruby, Python and Java; .NET technologies, as well as server systems such as SQL and SharePoint. Those working in this role also typically need experience with project management life-cycles such as Agile or SCRUM, as well as experience working with and managing sandbox environments.
