    • You have experience on applications involving orchestration of game rules, settings, or content management systems.
    • You have experience designing and building internal tools/systems from scratch.
    • You are detail-oriented and can always identify critical areas that need focus.
    • You have experience with deployment on hosting providers, such as Google Cloud, Azure or AWS.

    • You have experience with a/b testing or experimentation frameworks.
