    • Solve challenges involving scaling, reliability, high availability, data pipelines, and more. We build and scale applications using Python, Kubernetes, RabbitMQ, Docker, Redis, Postgres, Elastic search, Salt, and more. We change the wheels on the bus while it's running.
    • Live for efficiency and redundancy. Our systems reflect our processes reflect our people reflect our systems. We automate as much as possible in the cloud and in the office.
    • Hate "snowflakes." Standards, automation, and consistency are the key to smart scaling.
    • Love learning and thrive on hard problems. Low hanging fruit is fun, but hard problems are really what keep us going. Persistence and dedication to push through sticky situations are key.
    • Are patient, welcoming, considerate, and respectful. Our team is built on these values, and we expect all new members to be the same.
