  • A good understanding of how to deliver front-end and back-end components of web-based services
  • Excellent communication skills to liaise with various team members around the world, and the ability to work somewhat autonomously without local day-to-day management.
  • Experience with Crypto is a bonus.
  • You think a working proof-of-concept is the best way to make a point.
  • You feel ownership over everything you ship-you'd never call code "released" until you're confident it's correct.
