  • Help grow other engineers technically by mentoring, pairing, and developing other learning opportunities
  • Contribute to a culture of engineering excellence and strengthen the technical expertise of our engineering and product teams

  • Experience with a front end framework (we use ReactJS and TypeScript)
  • Experience with a horizontally scalable distributed computing environment (we use Kubernetes across on premises data centers and Google Cloud Platform)
