  • Drive progress in planning, prioritizing, and executing assigned tasks within deadlines.
  • Assist in researching new technologies to ensure best fit, quality and outcome.
  • Collaborate effectively on technical design, with peers on complex features.

You’ll Succeed With:

  • Solid understanding of secure software engineering concerns.
  • A strong business sense and ability to collaborate with leadership and non-technical stakeholders on highly visible projects.
