  • Have enjoyed 5+ years of experience as a back-end developer, and are comfortable dealing with lots of moving pieces.
  • Think deeply about systems and services and write high-quality code. We work mostly in Typescript, with some NestJs and However, languages can be learned: we care much more about your general engineering skill than - knowledge of a particular language or framework.

  • Change: Change is good; in fact, if we are not changing, we are not growing fast enough
  • Ambiguity: You should be comfortable with a sprinkle of chaos. This is not the kind of job where you show up and are told exactly what to do every day
