  • You are able to convince not just only customers but also your fellow developers that your solution is the smartest
  • You love building stuff - as a growth company, we’re continuously developing our practices!
  • it's not a problem if you don't know, the issue is if you don't want to know

All in all, you have a solid engineering/technical background/hands-on experience with conceptualizing, strategizing, and architecting cloud solutions. And it would also be a plus if you understand security, network, virtualization, load balancer, storage, and database.
