What we're looking for:
Amazing technical instincts. You know how to evaluate and choose the right technology and approach for the job. You have stories you could share about what problem you thought you were solving at first, but through testing and iteration, came to solve a much bigger and better problem that resulted in positive outcomes all-around.
A love for learning. Technology is continually evolving around us, and you want to keep up to date to ensure we are using the right tech at the right time.
Confidence, not ego. You have an ability to collaborate with others and see all sides of the coin to come to the best solution for everyone.
Comfort working in ambiguity and making sense of it. You can take in a lot of disparate information and find common themes, recommend clear paths forward and iterate along the way. You don't form an opinion and sell it as if its gospel; this is all about being flexible, agile, dependable, and responsive in the face of many moving parts.
