  • Experience working with AWS function either for a production application or a hobby project. Similar experience with another cloud provider is also a plus.
  • Experience having designed at least one API or subset of functionality from scratch. Able to discuss needs from both server side implementation and client side needs. A core belief in clean documentation, being able to setup tooling around it and to gain consensus for a certain approach is key.
