    • You have between 3 and 10 years of professional programming experience (JavaScript or Python are the preferred languages)
    • You have experience with cloud software architecture (e.g. GCP, Azure, or AWS)
    • You enjoy working independently

    • We’re fast - quickly measure and learn the impact of your work
    • Grow - we’re growing fast, and you’re the expert. Help us shape our growth!
    • Flexibility - everyone has their own highly productive times - you have found your sweet spot? Perfect, we look at the output and not at what time it was produced
    • Remote - we enjoy in-person sessions, but we have also learned (thank you Covid) how to be efficient with remote working
    • Competitive scale-up package
