About you

We are looking for a passionate developer and just as important as the technical experience is the ability to be #human and take ownership of your environment. We are so lucky to have excellent people to work with and offices to work in and we'd love you to be a part of it.

We would love to talk to you if:

* You prefer to code collaboratively, working together as a team with high levels of communication, learning from more senior engineers as well as mentoring those with less experience.

* You are passionate about shipping high quality, well tested software through automation, proven best practices and appropriate design patterns.

* You take ownership of your code in production, using metrics and customer feedback to guide technical priorities and improvements.

* You work with a focus on helping your team succeed in their mission.

* You have a passion to grow, learn and bring new ideas and concepts to the team.

* You have experience demonstrating your ability to envision web-based services in a distributed environment that meets customer needs and solves business problems.

*You have in depth knowledge of design patterns in development (eg SOLID) and platform architecture (Microservices, Event Driven, DDD)

*You hold a relevant bachelors degree and at least 2 years relevant experience
