About You: You’re a front end senior software engineer with a strong entrepreneurial spirit, who is motivated by the company’s vision and an executive team who can lead the company to success. At this point you want to be part of something big and game changing as an early employee and are ready to work hard to make it happen. You thrive on building something better than the next person, excel under tight deadlines and aren't satisfied unless the job is done and done well. But you're cool, have a good sense of humor and want to be surrounded by the same.
