  • Experience writing maintainable, automated tests
  • Experience using Git version control system
  • Experience having the primary responsibility to deliver large product features

What the successful job applicant will be working on:

  • Prioritizing code readability over eloquence or performance
  • Being passionate about learning
  • Exercising discipline by writing tests, creating small Pull Reviews, avoiding leaky abstractions, and cleaning up after yourself
  • Making good choices on your own
  • Helping our team improve in a kind, humble, flexible way
  • Taking responsibility for delivering large changes in an efficient, effective way
  • Collaborating with team members in all parts of the company to create the best solutions possible
  • Making wise decisions about what existing tools to leverage if any

  1. Introduction - This brief phone call gives us an opportunity to get to know you and explain the role you are applying for.
