  • Represent DNSimple and its values in public communication around specific projects and community contributions.

    • Comfortable working in a highly agile, intensely iterative software development process.
    • Nice-to-haves

      • Experience with Go is a plus.
      • Familiarity with the domain and DNS industry.
      • Professional experience with other programming languages.
