  • Continuously broaden and deepen your skill set to solve new technical challenges

  • Mentor and guide less experienced team members to provide technical direction

  • Provide Fanatical Support for our production system by fixing bugs and triaging alerts


  • 8-10 years of practical .NET development experience

  • Proficient with front-end web UI, customer-facing APIs, back-end job schedulers, multi-threaded workers

  • Proficient with git and git workflows

  • Proficient writing unit and integration tests

  • Demonstrated experience working on applications at scale.

  • Experience working in an Agile, fast paced, development environment
