  • Collaborate with your squad and other members of the Tribe to resolve engineering problems and incidents

  • Be involved in the full delivery process from elaboration to the delivery in the Play Store

  • Play a proactive part in owning the apps that your squad works with; taking responsibility for monitoring, measuring performance and addressing technical issues when required

  • Work in an agile way, with other engineers and test engineers, alongside the Solutions Architects, Product Owners and Delivery Leads
