  • Continually drive our engineering standards (code reuse, documentation, testing, etc.) and levels of service forward
  • Take high-level business requirements and develop the technical details behind them.  Collaborate with Product Managers to write epics and projects and ensure they’re appropriately broken down and prioritized, well understood by the team and sized correctly for continuous deployment.

  • You enjoy shepherding projects from ideation to completion, where completion often involves partnering with operational teams to carefully roll out changes that affect their workflows
  • You have prior experience leading and owning impactful and critical technology initiatives for organizations
  • You have experience in end-to-end product development from working with Product Managers to shape the product, providing feedback and design spec review with UI/UX designers, breaking work down into manageable tasks for a team using continuous deployment, testing, deployment, and monitoring
  • Proficiency in both spoken and written English
