  • You are comfortable moving up and down the stack. It matters less that you know the exact frameworks and tools that we use, but you must be willing and able to learn very quickly. We also mean full stack across other functions - you should be excited to understand the entire business and learn from customers.
  • You are good at breaking down sophisticated features into smaller more manageable tasks. You have the ability to explain machine learning solutions to developers and other team members, regardless of their technical background.
