Your Role

    • With a focus on feature development, you help us deliver a top-notch product affecting millions of users and revenue.
    • You energise a senior role in one of our mission teams where engineers, designers, QA, and product owners collaborate around different missions with the help of an agile coach.
    • You follow best practices in engineering to achieve a robust code base, e.g. through code reviews and unit tests.
    • You mentor less experienced colleagues and actively promote learning across the team while continuing to develop your skills.
Your Profile
