About the Role and Your Impact
As a Senior Development Lead on the Engineering team, you will work in a cross-functional team to build features that drive user growth and retention.

Your day-to-day would be focused on growing a healthy team, writing code, pairing with other engineers, and working with stakeholders to deliver innovative features.
