- Help troubleshoot production issues
- Eagerly dive into difficult problems and successfully deliver results on schedule
- Manage and mentor junior and mid-level engineers
- Offer leadership and guidance within the development team and the Technology department as a whole, including giving presentations and walkthroughs
