This person will have enormous scope to drive the technical decisions that shape the platform, as well as helping to build the rest of the team, and thus the company at large. You will report to the Director of Product, whilst working closely with all members of the Apolitical team - from the content department to the community and growth staff.
You ensure the highest quality code is delivered in line with product cycles, and keep flexibility, security and our particular user base front-of-mind at all times. You are comfortable with agile methodology and thrive working in a team whilst still being comfortable in a distributed company. Challenges excite rather than discourage you, and you are a creative force on the team; proactively suggesting ideas on multiple aspects of the business and the platform. You have a genuine appetite for staying abreast of new technologies and bring this to the table as Apolitical continues to integrate advanced tools such as machine learning into the platform.
