Job Details

  • Ensuring that our engineers are able to understand the business context and value of their tasks, as well as how it impacts users.
  • Working with our engineers to decompose high level stories into smaller, specific tasks and provide high level design support to help them understand how to solve specific coding challenges.
  • Perform code reviews to ensure that the work being submitted to the client follows the client’s coding standards as well as meets the letter and spirit of the assigned task
  • Assist our engineers in effectively communicating with their teams
