  • AWS (Lambda/EC2/S3/ECS etc)

  • Happy on the command line

  • Agile development

  • Familiarity with mobile and web development

  • Work as part of a focused team, but at the same time self-driven and able to work independently

  • Experience working on high scalability websites

  • Experience with big data

  • Have worked with genetics data
