  • Iterate in an agile fashion, creating hypotheses and testing them with incremental code shipments -- we ship code more than 12 times per day
  • Find opportunities to lead by nurturing the development of more junior Engineers
  • Share your knowledge within the Engineering team as well as within the broader technical community
  • Shape our engineering culture by improving our processes and codebases

Required Skills & Experience:

  • You love jQuery and have experience with Javascript libraries like require.js, backbone.js, underscore.js, or angular.js
