  • Apply analytical, debugging, problem solving skills to support and debug data-heavy applications in production to achieve long term product goals in terms of performance and reliability
  • Participate in collaborative software development practices, particularly performing merge request reviews, providing design feedback, etc.
  • Work in a fast-paced agile environment, effectively communicate and track development activities using agile tools like JIRA/Confluence.
  • Ability to work independently and within a team environment with geographically distributed team members.
