The candidate should be heavily motivated by both the product and technology stack. This is a unique opportunity to design and build distributed systems at scale.

You are familiar with the concepts and patterns described in the Reactive Manifesto, and terms such as CAP theorem, consensus protocols, strong vs eventual consistency, backpressure, bulkheading, circuit breaker, split-brain, and event-sourcing are your bread and butter. You are pragmatic, open to feedback, accountable, and a team player. We look forward to meeting you!
