You will work intimately with our operations and production teams to understand usage requirements for our new designs. You will structure your work around Agile software methodologies and build stories to work against. You will develop high quality software with little direct supervision. To fully embrace service ownership, you will need to understand the CI/CD pipeline and key performance indicators for your services. The ability to communicate ideas and solutions with your team and outside of your team is required.
