  • Strong communication skills, ability to collaborate across multiple teams including design and infrastructure
  • Capable of technical deep-dives into code, networking, operating systems and storage yet verbally and cognitively agile enough to hold their own in a strategy discussion with executive team
  • Comfortable recruiting, onboarding, and retaining a team of very bright, experienced engineers on projects and at scale unlike any other they’ve encountered

We want our engineers to be proactive about finding ways to improve our products; all of our engineers are permitted and encouraged to work throughout our code base as their time permits and their interest directs.
