These foundational features include work in specifying RESTful API standards/tools, event-based service communications, and other service design related technologies. We write and maintain code in multiple languages, mainly Python and Javascript. We value learning and we work in a highly collaborative environment, setting each one of our team members for success while building valuable software tools.
