The Role

We’re a small team, where every single member contributes to defining and developing the product. We’re looking for someone who can make their mark and take ownership of our deployment pipeline, as well as work very closely with our back end team. Our platform ingests data from our consumer-facing apps and provides analytics for all our clients. We need to be scalable enough to handle surges gracefully and lean enough to keep costs low. This position will transition into a leadership role in the long-term, requiring the capacity to guide others while continuously self-learning.

You in a Nutshell

You are never satisfied with the status quo and constantly seek ways to innovate. You don’t just have good ideas, you turn them into reality. You’re a born collaborator who understands the value of achieving goals together. You think before you do and when you do, you do it right and can’t stop until the foundations are set.

Getting things done isn’t enough—how thorough and comprehensive the process is what puts you on the never-ending path to perfection.
