  • Follow code standards and best practices for their given platform.
  • Work with Product Owners and UX/Designers to ensure complete and proper implementation.
  • Ensure the security, integrity and resilience of the application.

  • Engage engineers to support a culture of collaboration and inclusion through mentorship, respectful code review, and dedication to quality.
  • You are excited to share and learn from your teammates about crafting fantastic user experiences. 
  • You are passionate about voicing your opinions and can be humble in receiving feedback.
