  • Working with the Tech Lead and other engineers to help to develop and promote the long-term technical strategy.
  • Supporting the deployment of changes into the production environment and aid in investigating live issues or incidents.


About the tech:

  • You will have strong working knowledge of Javascript, including of Node and its ecosystem.
  • Experience with CI/CD tools.
  • Experience with modern version control systems, such as Git.
  • Experience in working on a public cloud platform (GCP a bonus).

  • Strong understanding of web technologies and working with APIs. (e.g. REST).
  • Understanding of agile methodologies and practices.
  • Ability to design solutions and cater for non-functional requirements such as performance and security.
  • Good communication skills to present effectively to peers and stakeholders.

Desirable Skills and Experience

  • Experience in working with databases, whether RDBMS or NoSQL.
  • Knowledge of NLU technologies.
  • Knowledge of Azure DevOps.
  • Familiarity with CPaaS (Communication Platforms as a Service) and voice platforms (Twilio is a bonus).
