  • You will participate in code reviews to assess overall code quality and flexibility
  • You will resolve problems and roadblocks as they occur with peers and help unblock junior members of the team. Follow through on details and drive issues to closure

  • 3-7+ ​​years of experience in Software Engineering
  • Strong experience in writing transactional web services using REST or distributed RPC technologies.
