Databases: You're comfortable with databases both conceptually and in implementation. Familiarity with SQL is preferred, bonus if you've worked with multi-tenant databases in the past.

Web Technologies: You have a strong understanding of the latest web development tools and techniques. You are familiar with JavaScript frameworks like Node, Angular, or React, and have built web applications with REST APIs in the past. Understanding of web security is a big asset.

FAQ:

How can I convince you I'm right for the job? - Show us your work! Ideally you can show us projects you've built running live on the web, ones you've built yourself and ones you've contributed to as part of a team. We want to get a sense for your work and working style, so share anything you think is relevant.

How much experience do I need? - At Crescendo, we don't measure your experience in years, but in demonstrated skill. If you're passionate about our problem and think you can contribute to solving it, please apply even if you don't have X number of years in industry on your resume. We love candidates with growth potential!

What is Crescendo built on? - The majority of the codebase is in Node.js, using Slack APIs for chat integration. We've got SQL databases in Azure and a couple fun tools you'll find out more about once you're on the team.

What's the culture like? - At Crescendo, we value the unique perspectives that every individual brings to our team. From day one, we've baked honesty, open-mindedness, and love of learning into the core of our culture, from the way we make big decisions to the way we write our code. As a member of our team you will be encouraged to bring your whole self to work, to challenge each other in a healthy, collaborative way, and to teach and learn from each other on the daily. It is through diversity that we see the world in new ways, and through inclusion that we all thrive and succeed together.
