  • Are very comfortable with Docker
  • Have 2+ years of experience working with cloud providers like AWS/GCP/OVH/etc
  • Have worked on a product that was deployed at scale across dozens/hundreds of instances
  • Have experience setting up and maintaining CI/CD pipelines using Drone/Jenkins/Circle/GitHub Actions/etc
  • Experience working within and managing a microservice architecture
  • Enjoy writing code, and thinking about how to make application code simpler, more organized, and cleaner

It would be awesome if you also had:

  • Some experience playing around with Deep Learning frameworks like TensorFlow and PyTorch
  • Some C++ experience
