  • Collaborate across teams to help design and implement clean interfaces between the various parts of our codebase
  • Participate in agile ceremonies and provide input on prioritization and technical plans

  • 5+ years of experience in software engineering with some experience using React and Django.
  • Experience working at all layers of the tech stack, from the front end to the database.
  • Demonstrated experience making proactive recommendations about a software product, software architecture, or team process.
  • Experience working collaboratively with adjacent departments, such as product management, to achieve engineering or product goals.
  • Nice to have: experience working with a larger team on software projects
