  • You are curious about mobile operating systems and how app developers can understand the performance of their software
  • You take testing seriously. Proficiency with unit and integration testing is required.
  • You embrace the fact that modern software development includes operations responsibilities and are interested in growing your skills there too
  • You enjoy mentoring others
  • You ship incrementally and often
