What You’ll Do

  • Problem Solving and Tradeoffs: Buildings are complicated and our editor must be at least as complicated. You excel at problem solving and developing generalizable patterns to the toughest UI problems.
  • Continuous Improvement: Iterate and evolve UI implementation methodologies, incorporating new tools and refine as appropriate
