The Customer Engagement team owns our Customer Domain services and part of the React frontend. You will work with both the usual authentication flows as well as the exciting gamification features. As you can imagine, we work on a big platform with several microservices that connect and react to each other. We have plans for refactoring old services and forward-looking plans to make the bidding process even more exciting and increase customer engagement. And this is why we need you.
