We're a team of creative pioneers partnering with Global 500 companies to create groundbreaking digital products and services (think mobile apps, AR/VR, websites, internet-of-things, etc.).

Interacting with clients and peers to understand their needs and arrive at meaningful solutions.
Designing, evaluating, and documenting robust frontend web client applications and backend services that provide the technical backbone of our efforts and products.
Authoring well-reasoned, well-tested code emphasizing data-backed APIs, infrastructure automation, and service reliability.

You have and can express your opinions, but are always willing to hear out others and incorporate new information and viewpoints.
You are kind and empathetic, and value those traits in others.
You've been doing this long enough (likely 5+ years) to appreciate the difficulty in getting to a 1.0 release (hopefully with a few stories to share).
