  • Prototype code with your first draft and then polish later, in a dedicated developer environment
  • Debug and resolve platform issues reported by our users
  • Roll out new features, then analyze and react to the results you discover from our system services and user feedback
  • Conduct daily check-ins to assist other developers
  • Participate in regular iteration meetings

 

What we offer:
