  • Designing and developing new application platforms
  • Reviewing, recommending and implementing new technologies

  • 6+ years’ experience writing production code for web applications. We love Polyglots who know several other languages and like the right tool for the job.
  • Expertise in an object-oriented programming language, such as Java or Kotlin
  • Proficiency with Python
  • Experience working with web frameworks such as Spring, Bottle/Flask
  • Experience using data in support of larger efforts, from reusing other services and APIs, writing new APIs, to streaming data for smarter online systems.
  • 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,
