You will use your database and back-end knowledge for working side by side with the most senior members of the team on quality and scalability initiatives to take us to the next level.

Using your client and server-side coding experience, you will be guiding us and collaborating to transform our product into an API-first product and modernize our UI stack. Blueprinting guidelines and best practices with the most senior members of the team in our journey to transform and be ready to fulfill our increasing customer demands.
