Precision and correctness are two of your core values. Thanks in part to your formal CS education, you have an excellent understanding of algorithm performance and can make good decisions regarding tradeoffs. You know the fundamentals of how computers and networks operate and have programmed in a low level language such a C or Go. Your Node.js experience builds on top of these fundamentals and you have a complete understanding of the Node event loop.
You have experience building complex systems and keeping them humming. You find great satisfaction in solving challenges that only appear at scale. It helps that you're an expert at troubleshooting problems using a vast amount of logs generated across multiple services. Once you've identified a performance bottleneck, you know how to correct it.
Whilst you spend most of your time writing software, setting up infrastructure from time to time is no big deal and you're comfortable working with Linux, Docker and GCP/AWS.

This is not just a standard webapp but a complex, highly elastic, multi-cloud browser rendering service consisting of mostly stateless and some stateful services.
