Extend data pipelines through event-driven services running on Google Cloud
Design and develop new APIs with Node.js & Typescript

We are obsessed with our customers’ success
We are transparent and honest with our customers, our business partners, and each other
We advocate for diversity in all its forms
We believe that laughter makes us more productive
We take care of ourselves and our families so that we can bring our very best to Trava
