• Evangelize and drive adoption of software development best practices in code health, quality, test stability and maintainability.

• Bachelor or Masters in CS or equivalent engineering experience.
• Deep knowledge of JavaScript; Node.js a plus.
• Experience managing automated build/ test/ deployment environments.
• Experience with increasing developer velocity, improving code health and building developer tools.
• You have technical curiosity and ready to help across the team and learn new skills.
• You have a strong bias for automation and taking the time to think about the right way to solve a problem versus quick fixes or band-aids.
