  • Improve the documentation website UX and analyse performance

  • Write guidelines on using tools, processes and workflows

Requirements

  • Proven ability to develop solutions from concept to implementation independently and as part of a team
  • Experience setting up and evolving continuous integration and deployment pipelines
  • Experience in back-end tooling, scripting (such as C#, JavaScript, Python, Perl, PHP) and source control (such as Git and Mercurial)
  • Experience in front-end web development (Javascript, CSS)
