  • Ship and Shine: Deliver real products that people in the real world use. There's no better feeling than knowing your code is making a difference!

  • Data Focused: You have extensive experience with RDBMS/SQL, preferably Postgres.

How you like to work:

  • Ability to be flexible, work analytically, and manage competing priorities in a high-growth environment.
  • Knowledge and mindset for automation and improvements to streamline processes for scalability.
  • A proactive approach to problem identification and independently developing/proposing remediation solutions.
  • You believe that any downtime is unacceptable and take security and customer privacy seriously.
  • Ability to work independently with limited required direction, oversight and guidance on simultaneous projects and teams.
  • Dynamic learning and growth mindset
  • Detail oriented: able to work with large volumes of data with speed and accuracy. Ability to self-check work.

Why Join Us?

You'll be at the heart of a cross-functional product team where every day is a collaborative adventure.
