  • Supporting the rest of the team in squashing bugs and improving the quality of our main Rails application.
  • Contribute to technology strategy – we will decide together how to evolve our data processing pipeline using technologies that fit our purposes.
  • Mentor junior members in the team, e.g. by reviewing their pull requests while providing constructive feedback, helping them when they have questions, as well as more pro-active mentoring sessions.
  • Stay up to date with the latest trends in technology
