Here is what we’re looking for in you
Experience/comfort working with 3rd Party APIs
A continual desire to learn. Experience with our technology stack is not required (Node, Bootstrap, Python, Flask, Celery, Postgres, etc.), but the possibility of learning a new framework is exciting to you
Great communication skills. You can effectively talk (and listen) to engineers, designers, and support team members
Fluency with data, including the ability to choose the right metrics and use basic probability and statistics to guide decision-making and prove ideas right or wrong
Creative, flexible, and resourceful problem-solving skills. In an environment where time and resources are always limited, you realize the perfect solution is not always the right one.
