A little bit more about the role

A Senior Developer provides technical and delivery leadership for a team of developers working on specific projects. This role will work with stakeholders and other developers to design and implement technical solutions for the business in a way that balances quality, cost, time and maintainability.

What we’re looking for

You will have built and managed large scale, web facing systems serving millions of requests a month while still supporting many deploys a day. You understand that configuring and managing this scale of infrastructure requires a fully-automated infrastructure provisioning toolset. You need to have a broad knowledge of system administration, networking, databases, security, storage and performance and have expertise in at least one of these disciplines.  

You align with the goals of the DevOps movement in improving collaboration between the development and operations disciplines.

  • Performance, Efficiency & Latency: contribute to the measurement techniques that assist in the performance tuning of the applications stack, use the monitoring systems to help maintain application performance at acceptable levels, and recommend and implement performance improvements across the stack
  • Security & Risk: participate in the ongoing process to identify and mitigate risk in Market systems
