  • Effectively mentor junior team members

Knowledge, Skills & Abilities:

  • You have a track record of launching and maintaining features of medium to large scope with measurable impact

  • You are a self-improver, investing in improving your skills; you proactively seek out feedback on how to improve your own work and work of your team

  • Ability to collaborate and work well with others

Minimum Qualifications:

  • BS/BA degree in a technical field such as Computer Science or equivalent years of experience

  • 5+ years of software development experience
