  • Participating actively in scrums, sprint planning, and retros and reinforcing the importance of sprint and Agile rituals to junior team members by example.
  • Keeping our product awesome by enhancing and contributing to upstream react and react-native frameworks
  • Maintaining a tight feedback loop for developers and internal users by doing test-driven development at the unit- and acceptance-test level for fast feedback both in local development environments, in our cloud CI providers, and our internal continuous deployment.
  • Ensuring we keep performance gains by enhancing our existing performance CI test suite that does automated CPU and GPU profiling on our target customer hardware.
