  • Work with a highly collaborative Seattle-based agile team with skilled teammates
  • Develop and deploy solutions independently and as a leader on our team.
  • Organize and collaborate across teams to scope and deliver new functionality.
  • Produce high-quality, well-architected solutions with an upfront focus on testing and long-term support.
  • Listen and communicate ideas effectively with respectful and responsive interactions
