  • Experience in designing and building RESTful APIs

Examples of projects you might work on:

  • Commerce Platform (cloud first and follows a microservices architecture built on AWS) to support the commerce requirements for customers globally
  • Identity and Access Management Platform where you can expect to participate in projects to enable different authentication mechanisms such as Social Login, SSO and 2FA and also contribute to the delivery of the platform API strategy
