This is a Full-stack role and you will use a number of modern web technologies including React + Redux, ES6, Styled-Components, Jest, Node.js, & MongoDB.

You will be part of a team and well-supported by friendly and encouraging engineers. You should be self-motivated and eager to find solutions to the issues that arise on your own, but you will always have someone to turn to if you are stuck.

  • Respond to incoming engineering support requests, triage issues, identify scope and gather information to ensure cases are properly documented
  • Work with Operations to update and distribute documentation
  • Analyze logs to uncover hidden issues
  • Work closely with the Product Managers and Owners to identify bottlenecks and stress points in the workflows
