We’re looking for engineers who are able to design and develop beautiful frontend UI as well as the massively scalable backend services to support it. We’re seeking engineers who are comfortable driving the end to end solution and who can do so in an autonomous creative manner. We’re looking for the Indiana Jones Developer Ninja.
