About the position

We currently have 2 web applications and soon will have a 3rd, each with different user stories and challenges.


  • Technical decision making for the scrum team
  • Train team members through code reviews and pair programming
  • Development project management
  • Continuous improvement work to ensure service compliance, stability, usability, and flexibility
  • Contribute to the creation of rules, best practices, and culture across the team

  • Navigator, negotiate challenges to find optimal solutions
  • Able to work smoothly and autonomously in a multicultural environment
  • Good intra and inter-team communication skills
  • Valid work authorization or a degree in a related field for those requiring visa sponsorship
