  • Analytical problem solving skills
Bonus Skills:
  • Experience building large-scale high-performance systems

  • B.S., M.S., or Ph.D. in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Math, or other technical field
  • Alternatively, an excellent open-source contribution history (highlight in application)
