They are eager to take responsibility for a project, and are able to make good decisions about the project because they have the context of what's important.\n\nWe don't require engineers to be already familiar with the technologies we use.

When applying for jobs, you should NEVER have to pay to apply. That is a scam! Posts that link to pages with "how to work online" are also scams. Don't use them or pay for them. Also always verify you're actually talking to the company in the job post and not an imposter. Scams in remote work are rampant, be careful! When clicking on the button to apply above, you will leave Remote OK and go to the job application page for that company outside this site.
