Core Responsibilities

  • Eagerness to delve into the source code of open-source libraries (such Webpack or Chromium) to truly understand how they work or to debug an issue.
  • Staying up-to-date with recent industry practices and advancements in open-source technology.
  • In-depth knowledge of web technologies and/or build systems is preferred, but not required.
  • 2+ years of software engineering experience.
  • Strong coding skills, with demonstrated proficiency in JavaScript/TypeScript, Java, C++, Python, or another similar programming language.
  • Great problem solving skills with the ability to navigate complex systems.
