  • Significant experience working as an engineer, with demonstrated ability to solve performance and scale challenges.
  • A proven background designing data-driven software, following observability, testing and deployment best practices.
  • Experience keeping track of your work using project tracking tools like GitHub, JIRA and Confluence.
