So, you are passionate about creating great software. You know great software delights customers and makes them smile when it works so simply, everytime. You know great software makes other developers smile and relax when they have to work with it or modify it. You have an uncle called Bob who has drilled into you the reason we need clean code and don’t feel happy to have your code un-integrated at the end of the day.
You have experienced different work environments and you know that working with a team who collaborate, realise there is always more to learn, and listen to their customers is far more fun than going it alone. You know teams like this take work and need to continuously look for improvement opportunities. You’ve discovered the best ways to measure this.
You have been in many developments, participating in every stage of the process. You care about understanding everything from CSS to DevOps, but have realised there is no “best” practice. You always consider how to get testable, simple, maintainable, flexible code and get fast feedback.
Great, we're looking for people like you who can help us build on our world leading platform. People who are technical experts and get things done by using their smarts and whatever tools make sense to get the job done. People who love to stand on the shoulders of giants to solve new problems and thrive in a rapidly innovating space.
