Hands-on experience with several of these technologies.

• Demonstrated ability to design / architect data systems and communicate the design to stakeholders with effective diagrams and verbal discussions.

• Professional approach to software development with habitual application of software engineering best practices.

• Experience working in small teams and owning responsibility for many elements across the backend, such as API endpoints, ETL, and databases.

 

Nice-to-have Qualifications:

• Experience with robotics or autonomous systems data and/or the Robot Operating System (ROS).

• Experience with container technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes.

• Experience with cloud platforms and ecosystems, such as AWS.
