Their applications are built on a multi-lingual set of microservices (mainly Golang), so the preferred candidate has experience in the Go programming language or strong desire to learn by transitioning from another similar OOP.

As these positions will be focused on new development on a massive platform, the specific languages, tools, and frameworks can be learned by the right engineer who comes in with a background in complex systems and the right mentality.
