  • Develop and maintain thorough documentation for all developed models and associated code.
  • Design and lead crucial technical projects and initiatives across teams and departments.
  • Work closely with leadership: software team leads, product managers, etc.
  • Provide mentorship and technical guidance to junior team members.


  • 7+ years experience in software development (preferably with javascript)
  • Experience with JavaScript, Python, and with web development frameworks such as React
  • Experience in designing responsive systems (embedded and cloud/web)
  • Understanding of distributed system design and the related technical challenges
  • A strong ownership of all aspects throughout the SDLC and beyond
