  • Set the standard for thorough, meaningful code reviews
  • Transfer your depth of knowledge and share best engineering practices to improve engineering excellence
  • Mentor more junior members

On your first day, we'll expect you to have:

  • 6+ years of experience building software, with at least 2+ years of experience in crafting and implementing high-performance RESTful micro-services
  • Fluency in any modern object-oriented programming language (e.g., Kotlin, Java, Scala, etc.)
  • Solid understanding of designing and building distributed systems.
  • Experience with leading projects which cut across multiple teams
  • Hands-on experience with CI/CD and deploying services to a production environment
  • Broad knowledge and understanding of SaaS, PaaS, IaaS with hands-on experience of one or more public cloud offerings (eg. AWS preferred)

  • Adept at working with minimal guidance and working with remote teams (peers, or customers)

It's great, but not required if you have:
