- Deep understanding of software design, product and business considerations that go into delivering great public APIs.
- Strong experience with modern technology stacks (learning on the job is perfectly fine).
- Relentless resourcefulness, ownership mindset, and a proven record of single-handedly taking ideas from conception to life.
