- Have opportunities to work across the full architecture of a feature, if interested, as part of a product-focused scrum team.
- Work independently to research bugs and implement fixes, and add to our analytics event tracking library.
- Continually improve standard web metrics.
- Participate in our culture of improvement by joining code review meetings, writing technical documentation, and reviewing PRs for your teammates.
 
About you:
 
- You have 3+ years in a front-end focused role using a modern Javascript framework.
- You have a solid understanding of web caching strategies and use of CDN.
- You thrive in an open and collaborative environment.
