  • Experience building cloud-based apps and a strong familiarity in the scalability, performance optimization, and monitoring of those apps.
  • Support in the maintenance of existing software systems.
  • Strong familiarity in Event-Sourcing, Domain Driven Design, and the CQRS pattern with hands-on experience implementing this pattern in systems which process a high-velocity of data updates while maintaining data integrity.

REQUIRED EXPERIENCE
