  • Facility in presenting and discussing the trade-offs in employing different engineering solutions to a problem, valuing pragmatism over idealism
  • An empathetic leadership style that encourages open communication and trust

  • Experience with Google Tag Manager and other measurement management tools
  • Experience with ML techniques as applied to behavioral segmentation or anomaly identification
  • Familiarity using developer tools that increase productivity and facilitate the development of resilient code (eg. Docker, Travis, Jenkins)
