The Role

Our ideal candidate cares deeply about improving the overall automated testing and delivery story, as well as the communications between all engineers, customers, and management relying on the infrastructure.

  • Demonstrated experience using programming languages such as Java, C++, Python, JavaScript, or similar languages.
  • Ability to work with a high level of autonomy and responsibility in a rapidly changing environment with dynamic objectives and iteration with users.
