You will be expected to project technical excellence, accountability, and empathy for the rest of the team.

    • We expect you to have experience working closely with product managers and product-focused engineering teams.

    • You should be a great communicator and remain calm under pressure or when juggling multiple priorities;
    • You should be a humble and inspirational leader who is comfortable leading by example;
    • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or related fields is a must

    We'd Love If You Have:
