  • Program according to project plans (versions, sprints)
  • Lead release and post-release activities, such as support, versioning and maintenance
  • Collaborate with our designers to create interfaces
  • Peer review other team members’ code, and learn and adapt from peer review of your own code
  • Support sales and project managers with technical insights, leading to the creation of budgets and schedules for projects
