Familiarity with agile development practices (a/b testing,unit testing,continuous deployment,continuous integration,scrums) and worked in a production environment.

Excellent written and verbal communication skills to communicate technical concepts to a wide variety of audience.

Ability to be empathetic and form strong working relations with your team members, customers and partners.

Write, test, debug and ship code and gather feedback on scale, performance, security to incorporate back into the platform.

Work with the founders to identify complex technical problems and solve them.
