Want to work on a killer app with a ton of real-time data? Then this is for you.

  • Super solid at Gevent - we heavily leverage it
  • Build, release, rinse and repeat

  • Visit some of the best racetracks in the world
  • Kick each other's asses at karting (indoor and outdoor)

  • An example of your work that does something you find interesting, and an explanation of why.
  • A description of your work history (whether as a resume, LinkedIn profile, or prose).
