Are you the Full Stack Web Developer - 'Performance Engineer' we're looking for?

We want innovative ideas about how browsers can render content in milliseconds, that we can process TB’s of data in minutes, or how to architect the server side to support tens of thousands of requests a second. Part developer, part researcher, part evangelist. You’re the kind of person with the need for speed and appreciate that a faster website means a better customer experience!

  • Experienced in optimizing performance of large scale websites.
  • Explain the full flow of Navigation Timing, Page Load Timing, Resource Timing and how each step can impact the customer and how to measure and monitor this information.
