In order to excel
Be a team player but remember your job: You’ll need to be very comfortable working day-to-day as part of a development team, shipping code
Be a leader for freelancers and agencies that help us with our work.
Be accountable and own the outcomes; Blockstate’s software runs operations for major financial markets worldwide. It must scale. You are supporting that effort
Understand our products completely: you’ll be the expert on the enterprise capability of our platforms. You’ll be able to talk about our products at a business level too. What problems do they solve?
Have a detailed awareness of our priorities, both as a business and at the individual product level. Develop your test plans with that firmly in mind
Remember your mission: Your group is responsible for creating an environment in which software performance and scalability are integral to the development process, so you must think about how to get your software engineer colleagues on board
Be ‘all in’: Fix broken things. Take the load off others when they need help. Reject second best
Understand the cost/benefit trade-offs being made. Articulate the risk and reward to help Engineering discover the right balance. Don’t be shy to speak up when you think a decision does not make sense
