Demonstrated excellence building complex backend applications with particular focus on LLM orchestration (LangChain + a model), search, vector databases, and SQL tools
Deep CI/CD, git, and cloud architecture knowledge and capability
Willingness to dive deep on the problem we’re solving and learn new frameworks and libraries
