What we’re looking for

  • Experience working within a startup environment, ideally large and small

  • An enthusiastic individual who is interested in the quickly changing technology landscape, and how we can leverage new technologies to gain efficiency enhancements ahead of the competition
  • An individual who doesn’t just code as a job, but it is something they also are passionate about, and enjoy doing
  • A relentlessly curious individual, with an internal excitement for learning and testing new technologies
  • An excellent communicator both verbally and with documentation, who is personable and pleasant to work with, both internally and with external stakeholders 
  • Someone who values and prioritizes their own well-being, and who is willing to empathetically help teammates when help may be needed.
