Delivery Architect/Technical Lead (Work from Home, Ireland|UK|US)
What your day looks like
Today, like every day, is going to be busy; you grab a cup of coffee and turn on your monitor. You check your calendar and have your daily standup with the development team to check on sprint progress. After that, you have a call with the client to groom the backlog. Then you walk over to the deli you love and grab some lunch. Your afternoon is a mix of collaborative problem solving across all areas of the stack, code reviews, and above all what you like best, coding!
