You love mentoring and supporting other software engineers who are newer to the industry. You have experience taking the lead in planning and executing the development roadmap for complex software projects, including those that span multiple teams or services. You make the engineering team more effective through the pragmatic application of useful code tools and patterns. You proactively identify opportunities to improve the maintainability, scalability and reliability of business-critical systems. Responsibilities You’ll build software to help companies build cultures in which their employees thrive. You’ll work with other engineers to build and own products across a modern tech stack.
