You will be working in a remote team including other software engineers, UI designers and a project manager working in an Agile environment, and you will also share best practice and insights with other product teams. As well as having the required technical skills, communication is a critical skill especially as the team will be largely remote, so sharing progress and working collaboratively online will be a vital part of the role.
