  • Work with the product team to create a simple, intuitive experience
  • Evaluate development tools and making architectural decisions
  • Keep extremely sensitive data compartmentalized and secure

Who you are:

  • Minimum of 3 years of professional hands-on experience
  • Strong object-oriented design and coding skills
  • Working knowledge of a server-side programing languages (PHP, Ruby, Python, Java, etc)
  • Experience with at least one front-end javascript framework (React, Angular, Backbone, etc)
  • Strong CSS skills
  • Solid understanding of data structures and algorithms
