What's the opportunity?

They use libraries like jQuery, Require, and Backbone and have recently begun a migration to React. It is architected around the HTML5 Canvas element. They're not language zealots.

  • Work with product management to decide how work is prioritized within the team and assist in maintaining a team roadmap and release commitments.
  • Meet regularly with senior management to communicate team status and roadblocks and work closely with stakeholders on other teams when needed to achieve the team's and company's goals.
  • As a technical leader, answering any questions that come up while also leading solutions discussions, making decisions when needed and being the example for writing clean, maintainable code.
  • Providing architectural guidance to your teammates and pushing them towards better development decisions, working with them to improve their architectural judgement.
  • Define and maintain an efficient and clear team process and uphold your team to our engineering standards and core values.
  • Participate in leading the response for service disruptions and hotfix releases.
