You’ll dictate the client's roadmap and set the standard for clean, readable, and secure APIs backed by a comprehensive test suite. You will spearhead many functions with the client, with the opportunity to both work on infrastructure/platform systems, as well as produce direct user-facing business impact. You'll be working with a sophisticated and high-throughput distributed system, where you'll focus on architecting clean, intuitive, scalable, and seamless APIs + abstractions for developers across the globe.
