  • Have full-stack experience integrating server-side APIs with front-end interfaces using Node.js, PHP, Python, or Go
  • Seek to drive efficiencies and automating routine workflows and tasks
  • Deliver performant features through an iterative approach: building, measuring, and learning
  • Efficiently learn new concepts, manage your own productivity, and desire to improve yourself, your team, and our products

What sets you apart:
