  • Writing tests and implementing testing automation, leading to championing test driven development within the wider team
  • Re-designing and re-factoring systems after creating sufficient test coverage
  • Writing reusable, testable, and efficient code
  • Design and implementation of low-latency, high-availability, and performant applications
  • Implementation of security and data protection.

  • Knowledge of Node.js and frameworks and libraries available for it such as Express, Mongoosejs and Bluebird
