  • Maintenance activities, continuous enhancements, and on-going issue resolution
  • Participate in design and code reviews, sprint planning and retros
  • Assist with estimating and breaking down components into individual work items, project and release planning, and deployments

Successful candidates will…

  • Enjoy tackling tough problems to deliver high business value to users and stakeholders
  • Love learning new technologies, and are always searching for how to improve the dev process
  • Take ownership for their tickets and sprint commitments all the way to deployment and beyond
  • Be great team players, collaborating effectively with Product, UX, QA, Delivery, DevOps, etc.

  • Coding experience in Node.JS, C#, WebAPI, Microservices, MongoDB, Redis, SQL
  • Familiarity with tooling such as Nugget, Git and Swagger/Open API
  • A hunger to learn, with the ability to flourish in a fast-paced, high-growth, entrepreneurial environment


  • Experience with Microsoft Azure (or other public clouds like AWS or GCP)
