  • Expertise in an object-oriented programming language, such as Java or Kotlin
  • Proficiency with Python

  • Experience optimizing larger applications to increase speed, scalability, and extensibility.
  • Comfort with database concepts and experience writing SQL in a relational database such as MySQL or PostgreSQL
  • Comfort with key programming concepts like memory management, optimization techniques, API design, relational mapping frameworks, and distributed applications.
  • Self-starter who can move projects forward by filling in the gaps on Agile teams, from leading a design session to doing some test automation, to mentoring a teammate struggling with a new technology.
  • Nice to haves: Experience working in AWS, Docker, Iterable, Twilio,
