Are you…

  • A smart, driven individual with a mix of passion for excellence in coding, efficient delivery, solid application design, and technical leadership?

  • Work with DevOps to ensure all deliverables can be deployed, managed and monitored automatically in a cloud-first, infrastructure-as-code approach.
  • Participate and contribute in your team’s agile rituals in a Scrum focused development culture.
  • Get your code to Prod as quick as possible in a continuous delivery environment that deploys 10+ times a day.
  • Hold yourself and your team members accountable to best practices around performance, reliability, quality, security, and testability standards.
  • Own your work all the way to Prod and beyond, aiding in triaging and fixing of bugs and issues that come up.
