- Work closely with and influence product and/or technology partners regularly to help define roadmap.
- Participate in on-call emergency response rota.
- Resolve conflicts between teams within the organization to get alignment and build team culture.
- Review others’ work and share knowledge.
What skills do I need?
- 10+ years of experience in software design and development in an object-oriented programming language such as Java, C/C++, Ruby, C#...
- Hands-on experience writing and shipping high-quality, large-scale distributed systems and client-server architectures.
- Able to effectively communicate technical ideas to and collaborate with both technical and non-technical peers.
- Experience debugging in a data-heavy environment (e.g. Hadoop, Spark).
- Experience with stream processing at scale (e.g. Beam/Flink/Storm/kafka/GCP) and related tools.
- Working experience with cloud-based services such as AWS, Google cloud, or Azure.
- Strong Design, coding, debugging, and problem-solving skills.
- Outstanding communication skills and collaboration capabilities.
