IT Software Developer / Manager

You eat, sleep, and breathe software development. You have experience balancing live-site management, feature delivery, and retirement of technical debt. You have a magical touch for improving existing systems (and you can quantify the improvements with automated metrics). You can express a new design in code, deliver it to production, and plan for ownership succession. You know that the difficult part of the programmer’s job lies in reading and comprehending the code of others – not in authoring new code. You love giving and receiving code reviews. You sweat the details. You authored (or improved upon) the coding standards guide for your team. You have deep familiarity with crash-only and recovery-oriented software design. Building reliable, self-healing services on unreliable hardware is exciting to you, and you know that the code is the infrastructure. You haven’t just used, but have built and operated the distributed platforms that define cloud-scale infrastructure.
