APIs
You’ve been on the receiving end of APIs good and bad, and want to delight our customers with the high quality they expect. You know that whilst everything should be JSON, sometimes you have to get your hands dirty with some SOAP for that critical integration but know how to isolate the contagion.

  • Go, Java, Python or C
  • AWS or GCP
  • Docker, Linux
  • NoSQL/Cassandra (not including Mongo & Redis)
