Team Engineering and Development

About the role

  • Collaborating with other developers and designers

  • Identifying and pursuing impactful projects driven by product direction, merchant need, and appropriate technological trends
  • Creating beautiful and fast code that improves our codebase in meaningful ways
  • Bringing context and learnings back to a team from other projects and mentoring junior developers through technically challenging decisions
