    • Closely monitor the performance of all critical parts of our stack and respond to system failures
    • Be diligent about tracking data so that we have a good look into how we can improve our products
    • Work with a talented team of designers, product managers, and operators
    • Dogfood our product and document any bugs or feature requests

About you:

    • You have a degree in Computer Science or equivalent technical background
