  • We want individuals that like to ship iteratively and consistently improve the code, leaving it better than it was when you first read it - as well as having a strong sense of ownership and taking pride in the quality of the final product. 
  • We expect engineers to be able to break down a complex problem into a solution that provides a rich user experience and implement solutions in a scalable future-proof way.

  • Our designers create wireframes and prototypes in Figma.
  • Our design system is created using Storybook and can be viewed here:
  • Our infrastructure runs on Heroku.
