You are comfortable using and providing guidance in techniques like test-driven development (TDD), pair programming and retrospectives.

Above all, you care about delivering quality software in a sustainable and timely manner. We strive for our teams to be cross-functional, self-organizing and autonomous. You will be working with product managers, business analysts, and your peers in a highly collaborative manner to enhance a suite of products that enable marketing data capture, validation, and consumption.

Writing maintainable, high-performance code

Refactoring to keep code maintainable

Collaborating with Product team (product managers, business analysts, and UX designers) to define and refine requirements

Other Attributes That Will Help You In This Role:

Experience working with client-side and server-side JavaScript

Experience with release management tools like Docker, Kubernetes and Buildkite

Experience with AWS products like Lambda, RDS, Kinesis, Cloudfront, SNS and SQS

Experience with observability tools like DataDog or AWS Cloudwatch
