  • Provide technical mentorship, code reviews, and standard methodologies to the team members to ensure high-quality deliverables.

  • Support customers and internal stakeholders by solving issues, resolving queries, and providing effective solutions.

  • Champion a culture of innovation, independent thinking, and proactive problem-solving within the team.

  • Collaborate with teams operating in different time zones, demonstrating excellent communication and cross-functional partnership skills.


  • A related technical degree required.
