  • Leave your fingerprints on the design of products, architect our infrastructure, and improve technical documentation
  • Be a go-to technical expert for other people in the organization, articulating technical concepts to non-technical stakeholders
  • Write code and mentor teammates as they test-drive code for new features and bugfixes.

  • Participate in code reviews to share expertise with the team, ensure code quality, and verify PCI compliance
  • Use and improve our automated CI/CD pipeline
  • Provision and maintain cloud infrastructure for your team’s products
  • Monitor the health and success of your team’s products through application, system, and business metrics
  • Own the success of the systems you and your team develop. This includes monitoring, investigating issues, and supporting the service during outages

  • Expert-level ability to code in languages such as C#, Java, JavaScript, Go, Python, or Ruby
  • Experience with relational and non-relational databases such as Oracle, MySQL, MongoDB, or DynamoDB
  • You’ve worked in or are interested in working in an agile environment using processes like Kanban or Scrum
  • Experience mentoring junior and intermediate developers
  • Experience with TDD/BDD practices

The nice to haves:

  • Experience with cloud platforms like AWS/Azure
  • Previous experience and/or interest in team leadership
  • Experience with service-oriented or microservice architecture, including asynchronous event-based integration
  • Experience improving legacy systems, or migrating them to a microservice architecture

Success in this role looks like:

  • Writing clean, maintainable code with good test coverage
  • Helping the team make technical decisions, taking a lead role where appropriate
  • Effectively communicating technical decisions
