• You are passionate about making data available for self-service, and wider integration. You have knowledge about transport protocols and are well-versed with building APIs/services and frameworks used for them e.g. Spring, gRPC etc.
• You have experience in supporting and maintaining products that run 24x7, ensuring high availability and reliability.
• You can craft scalable systems and solutions to realize a range of product and engineering goals.
• You have a strong operational awareness and design multi-tenant systems that can handle high-scale and high-throughput demands while being easy to operate, monitor, scale, and maintain.
• You prioritize observability in your designs, ensuring systems are equipped with comprehensive monitoring, logging, and alerting to facilitate proactive issue detection and resolution.
• You own what you build, beyond just your code and have a passion for quality.
• You are comfortable working in the most agile of environments with vague requirements. You are nimble and can pivot easily when needed. You are unafraid to take smart risks.
