- Maintain a relentless focus on scalability, latency, performance robustness, and cost trade-offs in a containerized cloud-based environment.
- Apply scientific analysis and mathematical modeling techniques to predict, measure and evaluate the consequences of designs and the ongoing success of our platform.
