Set standards that enhance the patterns and principles used to integrate our Bounded Contexts
Our system is a built around principles of lean, resilience, agility, and responsible autonomy. You discover and create the rules of engagement for system integrations. Detailing patterns and areas of interest occurring within the system as a whole is second-nature. We ensure that our cloud infrastructure, practices and processes scale to meet the needs of our enterprise customers around the world.
You are able to mitigate risks and find opportunities, without compromising desired quality attributes. Measure and advocate for solid engineering practices like TDD, BDD, Human-Centered Design, agile, and lean methodologies.

  • Design system-wide patterns for continuous lifecycle improvements
  • Work with teams to set standards, make decisions and write RFCs
  • Speak to "Domain Driven Design", lean principles, product development flow, and engineer NPS.
  • Co-create common language and solutions with technical and product leaders as well as teams of individual contributors
  • Improve business decisions via thoughtful partnership with key leaders and teams to deliver resilient systems.
  • Reduce friction within and between social and technical domains
  • Join a small but skilled team of system caretakers

Mindful Compassion
You calmly work with peers to resolve disputes, compromise, and communicate thoughtfully toward mutual understanding. You build consensus and make decisions at every level of the organizational elevator and are able to work daily in a collaborative remote setting.
Systems-Focused
You are systems-minded and color both in and outside the lines. You understand that all technology choices involve tradeoffs and you can argue for either side of a tough decision. You balance long and short term views and can see the forest for the trees. You understand how to diagram systems and model process and flow efficiency.
Learner's Perspective
You have a growth mindset and find joy in challenge. You develop understanding across functional areas and domains. You are willing and able to develop strong public speaking skills and improve the technology industry at-large.
Value Diverse Viewpoints
You value team diversity and other important stabilizing aspects of complexity. You seek to amplify traditionally disenfranchised voices.
