  • Follow software engineering best practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, and testing
  • Take ownership of medium-sized features by breaking them into manageable tasks that can be accomplished by themselves and/or others
  • Coordinate with members outside of the engineering team to deliver features in a timely manner


  • Strong software development fundamentals, design theory, and development processes
  • Excellent debugging skills
  • Excellent written and verbal communication
  • Willingness to work as part of a team and contribute to technical discussions
  • Eager to learn from reviews and constructive feedback
  • Strong personal time management
