About the role

  • Identify opportunities to incorporate new technologies or techniques into our process that improve engineering velocity.

To succeed in this role, you have

  • 5+ years of relevant software engineering work experience.

  • Intimate knowledge of JS ecosystem (tooling, libraries, etc).
  • Expert level familiarity with RESTful APIs and Service Oriented Architectures.
  • Ability to uphold code quality standards, demonstrated through passion about technical stewardship.
  • Experience with complex code bases and know how to incrementally improve them.
  • Proven ability to recruit and develop top technical talent.
