This position is back-end development. You should find these keywords familiar and very appealing: Kubernetes, infrastructure orchestration, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, MySQL, database clustering, database high-availability, containers.

Architect technical design of new features and improvements

Collaborate with engineers and teams across the company to helping in the deployment and debugging of Kubernetes Operator to facilitate rapid integration and massive growth
