What are we looking for?

  • Excellent & extensive technical knowledge as well as proven delivery of Web applications using React, TypeScript & JavaScript.
  • A high level of belief and understanding in automated testing as well as 'shifting left'.
  • Proven experience in continuously delivering high-quality code within agile teams, using Extreme Programming Practices.
  • A high level of experience and understanding of building cloud native systems.
  • A strong capability to inspire and coordinate different Engineering team to deliver on business goals.
