  • You’re comfortable making software design decisions and weighing in on choices that impact everything from product design to team process, from system architecture to algorithmic improvements, and from CSS details to overall user experience
  • You have experience working well in a team setting. You're happy to help others out and aren't afraid to ask for help when you need it

Characteristics that will make you successful in the role

  • You enjoy and take pride in writing elegant, reliable, testable, and maintainable code
