We're also flexible about swapping weeks because we know life is what happens outside of work. * We work closely with product management, technical support, and our design team to make sure we're building the right features to help our customers understand their digital business. How do you know if you're right for this job? * You have production level experience in a modern object orientedlanguage such as Java, C#, Ruby, Python or Go as well as good understanding of Javascript and working with frameworks (React or Angular experience would help you hit the ground running). * You are curious about how modern browsers work, the vast amounts of data they process and what that data can tell you about your app. Not sure if this is you? We're particularly interested in having a diverse team, with a broad set of skills and viewpoints. If this seems like your dream job, but you're not sure if you qualify, apply anyway! We'll carefully consider every applicant that takes the time to apply for this specific position. We'll either move forward with you, find other teams that are good fits, keep in touch for later opportunities, or thank you for your time. Interested?
