  • Experienced with automated testing (e.g. e2e, integration, unit)
  • Strong knowledge of Object oriented programming
  • Understanding of full-stack (e.g. backend, databases), and willing to do work across the stack if needed

What you will get to do: 

  • Continuously improve the quality of our platform by driving improvements and challenging the status quo. 
  • Join user research interviews with Designers and Product Managers to understand and validate product solutions 
  • Work in an autonomous cross-functional team with engineers, product managers, and designers.
  • Support & guide the team on code reviews, best design practices & help in meeting regular deliverables at the sprint & roadmap level.
