  • Understand a myriad of technologies in-depth, pick the right tool for the job and write code in Scala, Java, or Python to create resilient and scalable solutions.
  • Assess performance and recommend next steps as new products are launched and provide new measurement methodologies on key metrics to assess the success and failures of a product.

BEHAVIORAL COMPETENCIES

Manages Complexity

  • Makes sense of complex, high quantity, and sometimes contradictory information to effectively solve problems. For example, looks at complex issues from multiple angles; explores issues to uncover underlying issues and root causes; sees the main consequences and implications of different options.

Plans and Aligns

  • Plans and prioritises work to meet commitments aligned with organisational goals. For example, outlines clear plans that put actions in a logical sequence; conveys some time frames. Aligns own work with relevant workgroups. Takes some steps to reduce bottlenecks and speed up the work.
