More than anything else, this is a real opportunity to make an impact - we have a small engineering team today so everything you do, minute-by-minute, impacts the company's success.

  • We need to move fast to win the race we are in so we build and deploy incrementally, and quickly.  We are a data and results-driven team.

  • Our engineers are expected to be product-centric - you will contribute to shaping our product features to meet our goals, not blindly implement specs provided by someone else
