WHAT YOU’LL DO
The Senior Software Engineer is the core of the engineering team. They are able to take ill-defined requirements and use their understanding of the system architecture and the business to expound and fill in gaps while asking the right questions of the business along the way. They should take full responsibility to mentor the less experienced members of their team and have top notch troubleshooting skills. They are always available for peer code reviews and often jump it to help resolve critical issues facing the platform.
