- You have experience working with React and/or Rails.
- You are pragmatic and understand the trade offs in making technical and architectural decisions.
- You are always seeking opportunities to improve your own work.
- You are humble, and leave your ego at the door. You are able to take feedback gracefully and act on it, as well as give thoughtful feedback.
- You are enthusiastic about being a resource for the people on your team.
- You’re looking to drive tangible impact in your next career opportunity.
- You are an experienced engineer who has worked heavily across the stack in large-scale, high-visibility applications.
