- You will research, implement prototypes and spikes as necessary to validate assumptions and technical feasibility.
- You will champion code quality and introduce necessary design patterns by working in unison with other Staff and Principal Engineers.

Our Engineering and Product teams are structured as autonomous squads that execute within one focal area toward a defined product vision.
