You are passionate about creating clean code and have a strong foundation in coding.

You are familiar with and enthusiastic about engineering best practices such as testing, continuous integration and continuous delivery. You are a strong team player who is proactive in collaborating with others within our local organization as well as centralized teams. And most importantly, you enjoy the challenge of learning new things and pick up/adapt to changes faster than your peers.

Me as a manager

I believe in empowering individuals and hence we work together to define our vision, strategy and roadmap. There is room for research and exploration as long as we can align it to our goals and priorities. I encourage people to to drive and take responsibility for what they are passionate about and see the manager role as a facilitator of decisions and coordinator of efforts with a clear focus of evangelizing a data driven mindset.

We spend so much time together so I really encourage everyone to make sure we have a highly social and positive environment with giving and receiving feedback as an important part of our daily work life. I don't believe in talking about duties, but one; to make sure we enjoy ourselves and have fun together at work.


We are curious about you and look forward to hearing from you!
