        • A solid foundation in computer science, with strong competencies in data structures, algorithms, and object-oriented software design.

        • Experience with mobile development or game development (especially Slots or Casino) is a plus.
        • Experience with server-side technologies in PHP/Java/C++/Go or REST APIs is a plus.
        • Experience with monitoring live server deployments is a plus
