Who You Are...


You build highly scalable, fault tolerant, globally distributed web services that are consumed by both internal and external developers.  Your code is clean, tight and sprinkled with the right amount of syntactic sugar to run efficiently, and is understandable by your peers.


You thrive working in a small team with other highly skilled developers finding better ways to solve the unique problems that come with service which need to handle 1000s of requests per second.  You work in an agile and collaborative fashion discussing with your peers the right way to build the application and how to quickly deliver value to the customer.


Throughout your career you have mentored others on how to be a better developer and leader and shared your knowledge openly with your team and the software community in general.  You provide constructive and honest feedback to others and accept it in return without ego.
