    • Is an expert in using git.

    • Has worked with CI/CD processes before (CircleCI/Jenkins preferably).

    • Has an extremely high bar for quality.

    • Is thorough and detail-oriented.

    • Can learn fast.

    • Has great communication skills, particularly with respect to writing.

    • Gains deep satisfaction from helping to make products better.

    • Has experience of working in a small business or startup environment.

    • Preferably has experience collaborating with diverse, geographically-dispersed teams.

    Core Responsibilities:
    • Own backend development and contribute to other areas of the product. 

    • Learn, evolve and improve an existing application/system architecture.

    • Review code from other engineers and provide feedback.

    • Help secure the environment.

    • Develop Shorthand app server-side and API functionality to help improve the customer experience. 

    • Contribute to the technical direction of the Shorthand tool.

    • Report bugs.

    • Communicate with the customer support team and customers to suggest solutions to issues.

    • Assist in the creation of product documentation when required.

    • A minimum 10 years of experience in Software Engineering roles.

    • A minimum 3 years of experience in web application development.

    • Thorough knowledge of NodeJS and the web.

    • Experience with AWS.

    • A university qualification in computer science or a closely related field, or equivalent career experience required.

    Personality Attributes: 
    • You are a proactive self-starter, who does not need to be told what to do and will be resourceful in order to find solutions to any challenge.

    • You thrive in a fast-paced and demanding environment, and possess a high level of intellectual curiosity.
