* Our pay and benefits will be somewhere between good and great, depending on what you are used to and where you live (see below for specifics).

    * Adheres to and promotes our development culture and mission
    * For Team Leads (see below): invests in other team members to see that they are growing as individuals and to facilitate productivity within our team.
3. Code quality
    * Leaves code in substantially better shape than before
    * Fixes bugs/regressions quickly
    * Monitors overall code quality/build failures
    * Creates tests religiously and makes sure the rest of the team is doing the same
    * Proactively identifies and reduces technical debt
    * Proactively defines and solves important architectural issues that may hinder development
4. Communication

5. Performance & Scalability
    * Excellent at writing production-ready code with little assistance
    * Able to write complex code that can scale with a significant number of users
    * Avoids premature optimization


In addition to the leadership expectations noted above, some of our senior developers will also be involved in leading other developers and interacting with customers. We realize not every senior developer is as good with people as they are with code and that’s ok. We need and value individual contributors. But if you like and are good at interacting with people, we will have opportunities for you to lead teams and/or projects
