  • Seek to identify opportunities for code refactoring and performance optimizations on a regular basis and champion these efforts within the team.
  • Mentor junior software engineers by sharing best-practices and providing guidance on how to become more proficient.
  • Share advanced/expert knowledge with others in the department, both on and off team; maintain a reputation as a key resource in those areas.
