  • You know React
  • You have worked on a SPA before
  • You know the difference between CSRF and XSS
  • You can move fast by focusing on the important things and letting the chaff blow away
  • You can dive into areas of the code base you’re not familiar with to provide useful code reviews
  • You like to collaborate with product owners and stakeholders to gather requirements for new user experiences
  • You are mindful of the work of countless women and men who have gotten us to where we are - Ada Lovelace, Alan Turing, John von Neumann, Grace Hopper, Dennis Ritchie, Don Chamberlin, Ray Boyce, Adele Goldberg, Vint Cerf, Radia Perlman, Linus Torvalds, Guido van Rossum, matz, Graydon Hoare, Daniel Bernstein, Sanjay Ghemawat, Jeff Dean

If you think this is cool, don't rule yourself out because you're missing something from this list - we want people with imposter syndrome to apply.
