  • Become a champion of new ideas that will thrive to achieve the purpose of our company while ensuring the quality culture that we value the most.
  • Take joy in deployment to production multiple times a day and collaborating daily with your team or other individuals while working in a distributed model.

Requirements:

  • Have a confirmed grasp of object-oriented programming, clean code, and best testing practices.
  • Proficiency in React, JavaScript, CSS3, and HTML5 is a must. Experience with TypeScript and GraphQL is a plus.
  • You have experience with responsive designs.
  • Consider multiple quality dimensions like user impact, failure tolerance, code maintenance, implementation time, security breaches, and performance.
  • Be genuinely interested in technology and love to try new things.
  • Tackle complex problems but also consider multiple solutions, weigh them, and decide on the best course of action.
  • You should be passionate about providing and receiving honest and constructive feedback.
